    D&D movie was great. So much better than expected.

    Ended up not really giving a damn about any of the protagonists, and only watched through to the end out of a sense of wanting completion.
    It comes off as a bootleg Fargo. It's not bad in any way, but it's just a Florida Fargo.

    Agreed. As a D&D nerd, this pushed a lot of my buttons.

    Yeah D&D was a fun part of my life from 1980 up to about 2015. My kids aren’t interested and the group I played with most recently have all just drifted apart as we have passed 40+ with kids, work etc. But will never forget. Sold all my OG hardback manuals several years ago to collectors. Still have my personal character stuff and dice

    Quantumania…it’s passable. When I used to collect comics and worked at a Comics store I never was connected to these characters. But the actors do a great job of keeping it light in the Ant Man movies so that offsets it a little bit.

    Hope I haven't told this story before, but my next-door neighbor is really into D&D. He's 50-ish and plays with coworkers and his teenage son. He's a really handy guy (electrical engineer by profession) and he built a nice-looking large dining room table. It doesn't look "homemade" at all. There are hidden drawers that pop open at each seat for players to keep their stuff, and the top slides open like something in a James Bond villian's hideout to reveal either a large computer monitor or a TV facing up for everyone to see. Apparently he's the dungeon master and displays what he wants the players to see on the screen as they play.

    That's a long way from books and dice and graph paper and pencils in the old days.

    Yup, with digital mapping and so on now, you can if you want make a lot of use of multi media.
    You can still also do everything on paper with pencils and random objects as the players and monsters.
    D&D are building their own digital platform, having been buying up other companies with digital assets. However the company has burnt a LOT of bridges with their players of late, so it's hard to know how much buy in they will achieve.

    Just watched Death Promise. Blaxploitation to the point where the only black people in the movie get supporting roles, along with a ton of people desperately trying to be Bruce Lee. Truly awful, wonderful stuff.

    Just slept through large sections of the new & Obelix movie (dubbed into English). Unfunny enough that I didn't so much as change expression once (while I was awake anyway).
    Pretty average.

    Watched Unthinkable (2010) last night. Quite intense.

Don't want to have to go to one of those illegitimate sites that attack your computer/phone with malicious software. Frustrating!
    Finally going to watch Nefarious tonight. Thereís one theater - one - in all of Toronto thatís playing this, and itís all the way downtown. Looks like a small seedy place, but whatever. Next closest theater playing this is west about 45 minutes away.

    Last weekend it was playing at a small theater just 10 minutes north of me at 1:00 in the afternoon, but I couldnít go because it was my nieceís birthday. That theater has since dropped the movie.

    So I started watching American Born Chinese on Disney….5hrs later and I’m still watching. It’s really quite good. In many different ways.
