Re: Last Movie Watched

Holy crap, I think Alien: Covenant is still the last film I've seen. You have to fix that, LT. Many worthier movies you need to get in. Agreed. I have a lot of discs piled up I'm eager to get to (whether or not the prove worth it in the end of course remains to be seen): F. W. Murnau's Nosferatu , ...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Unimpressed. I liked the short teaser better than the long teaser. I really didn't like the long teaser, or, I suppose they're calling it "the trailer." Probably only trailer, in my estimation. I don't like the look of the actor playing Han Solo. Ah, yes: Sham Faux-lo. But it it just me, or is Maz ...

Re: What's the last book you read?

The last book I read was: The Skeptic: A Life of H. L. Mencken by Terry Teachout.

I'm still working on Gregory Benford's Great Sky River.

The X-Files last night, Episode 3.17, if memory serves: "Pusher."

Before that, Doctor Who, 6.13, again if memory serves: "The Wedding of River Song."

Right now, in the other room, to which I must return, Tucker Carlson Tonight.
