  1. I’m probably the only person in my age group that chose to watch Winnie the Pooh over Harry Potter that weekend (right choice IMO)

    I don’t there’s any Winnie the Pooh film I didn’t enjoy, even Christopher Robin. I appreciate it as a story about regaining innocence and softening ones heart, but it’s fine if you guys don’t see it that way

  2. So Sexy Beast opened exclusively at our art house theater. It’s the mid west in July, so it’s a goddamn heatwave – And our AC broke that weekend. We had already sold out every show, and there was no hope of getting the AC fixed. So the only thing we could do was put up signs and tell people ahead of time: Either watch the movie in a hot theater, or get refunds beforehand. Most people braved the heat…

    And the movie opens with a shot of Ray Winstone in the scorching heat, and he narrates: “Oh, yeah. Bloody hell. I’m sweating in here. Roasting. Boiling. Baking. Sweltering. It’s like a sauna. Furnace. You can fry an egg on my stomach.”

    It got a pretty good laugh.

  3. Hey y’all commenting late but when listening to the birthday quiz I instantly thought of the Christmas movie Jingle Jangle. It’s on Netflix and is a musical stating Forest Whitaker where he shows off those opera chops. And like y’all I was so surprised to see him sing and kill it! It has a great eclectoc cast including Keegan Michael Key and Ricky Martin. It’s nice to see a nearly all African American cast in a Christmas musical for a change. My kids love it and it’s now part of our family Xmas movie month. Check it out!
