Watched 'The Boy 2' on Friday night. I wasn't very impressed by the story. The locations and shots were lovely, though.

Saw the Invisible Man a couple of weeks ago, or last week maybe? I don't even remember. It was interesting. Nothing to brag about. If you've ever been in an abusive relationship, this movie might be a tad triggering.

Someone at work was talking about The Invisible Man.  I thought he was talking about the Kevin Bacon one at first. But I think he was talking about the same one you are.

I was watching an interesting Docuseries on Netflix called Pandemic. First episode features a lady that was saying she had watched the movie "Outbreak in 1995" And became obsessed with the possibility of a new pandemic and dedicated her life to researching how to detect and stop one and now she is basically the head of the CDC. 

The documentary was made before this outbreak began. Kind of an earie moment where she says something along the lines of. "We don't know where when or how a new flu pandemic is going to begin. But we do know that it will." Kind of earie hearing her say that, because now it is.

Also kind of interesting that they say all the really deadly ones come from animals because the ones from animals are pretty alien to our immune systems, and our bodies don't know how to handle them. Not sure if true or not but I heard someone at work saying this new one came from bats. Someone ate a bat and got sick or some such and started the whole thing. But I don't know for sure, you know how rumors go. Everything gets twisted and people make shit up.

Lies! This is all caused by a bio warfare project gone out of control.  :paranoid:

Here, there is a theory that this was caused to cover up something else that is going on in the world. I can't say if it is or it isn't... but I know humans. Humans, especially rich ones, are assholes. And assholes are always up to something. There's asshole-ery afoot. Mark my words.

I've been reading a lot of stuff lately, yeah there are a lot of theories about that going around. But it's hard to know what is true and what isn't.

I've been watching a pretty good, but sad movie called Aftermath. Arnold Schwarzenegger is in it. Arnold plays a guy who loses his wife and daughter to a mid air plane collision due to a bad air traffic control mistake/accident. It's a good movie though should probably be watching something more cheerful. But it randomly popped up and decided to check it out.

Watched 'Ready Player One' last night. The nostalgia was fun but the storyline under it made me wonder how many people will be escaping into the internet more than usual over the next two weeks, and made me hope that people are being safe online. There are likely predators out there poised and ready to pounce on the vulnerable.

Sorry I went there but my mind is not in the nicest place now. I'm trying to keep a good mind. I should watch more up beat movies as well.

I never saw that but looking forward too at some point.

Ozark season three is coming to Netflix in a couple of days. Looking forward to binging that. The first two season were pretty good even though the beginning of season 2 was a bit slow paced for me but it got good. Season three looks like it will be good. It's a quality well made show with good acting and some tense drama.

I watched the very first episode of the original Star Trek the other day. It was actually enjoyable despite the extremely outdated quality of the costumes and special effects. I got into it enough to watch the entire episode. And to my surprise it had a dreaming element to it. I watched some of the originals when I was a kid when they were on TV. But I don't really remember much of it. I thought it would be fun to watch the very first Star Trek episode ever made.

I found a really good show called Money Heist. I normally can't handle foreign shows because I struggle with the most times terrible voice over acting on non English speaking shows. But this one the voice overs are not too terrible most of the time, except when this one guy laughs is horrible and stupid sounding. lol The show itself is excellent. I've watched 9 episodes so far since I started it last night and I was into it right away from the start of Episode 1. Loving it.

I'm hoping this show will be a gateway for me to be able to enjoy more foreign stuff because there is so much of it on Netflix and some that look really good. But as mentioned the voice over actors usually sound so bad it's too difficult to watch. But hopefully Money Heist will help me to get used to watching dubbed material so can enjoy it more.

Finished three seasons of "MONEY HEIST"

Brilliant fun show from Spain. Has a little bit of everything. Action, adventure, drama, romance, some good humor. Fun characters. Looks like another season is coming early April, the 3rd I think it said.

A criminal mastermind has a long time plan he designed to take a mint hostage. He recruits a group of people to train and pull it off. The plan, to take the mint hostage, and then toy with and delay the authorities for as long as possible while inside the mint they use the money making machines to print as much money as they can before making their escape with the newly printed and untraceable cash. A lot of twists and turns, and of course some unexpected obstacles to the plan to overcome.
