    Absolutely awful and boring. But for some reason we keep watching these. (Good for a lazy afternoon and a 5th of Vodka.)

    Watched Venom over the weekend at home with Kricket on the couch. I kind of like the anti-hero take on things. It was a fun movie...I would watch it again if it popped up on TV, but I wouldn't go out to buy it.

    We watched "Three Identical Strangers," an emotional and true documentary about triplets that were unwitting lab rats for a, still unknown and unpublished, scientific study through Yale University. Born in 1961, separated and sent to three adoptive families, they coincidentally found each other in the '80s. Afterwards, details began to emerge about the dark study that they, and their families, were a part of. It is a fascinating story. I've become certain that there are hidden societies that experiment and attempt to manipulate us.
    Here's a preview:

    That looks like an amazing story. I'll have to check it out!

    I agree.

    We found Mystic Pizza on Hulu and said, "Have we ever actually watched this?" We watched it and could not remember ever having seen it. Typical 80's. Lots of hair.

    It was a movie whirlwind for me this weekend!!
    Daddy's Home 2 (Prime) : I loved the cast! Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, and John Lithgow are all so funny, and there was actually a scene that got me a bit teary too. Mostly good for a few belly laughs.
    Megan Leavey (Prime) : Based on a true story about a Marine and her dog, Rex. I'm a sucker for German Shepherds, so I was a blubbering wreck during a good portion of the movie. No spoilers, but it does end on a good note.
    Ralph Wrecks the Internet (BluRay) : Fun movie. I enjoyed looking for easter eggs throughout, and they were definitely plentiful. Be sure to watch the credits ALL OF THE WAY through...belly laughed at the very end!!
    Tucker & Dale Vs Evil (BluRay): Do I really need to say anything about this one?? BRILLIANTLY funny. I've seen it many times, and I still laugh loudly. Probably more loudly when there is wine involved.
    Three Identical Strangers (DVD/It is streaming on Prime as well) : This was a suggestion of @Marlin Perkins . We enjoyed this one, but a bit bummed about the ending. I guess that's what happens when you deal with real life though.
    Blacklist(Netflix) : Okay...not a movie, but Cheryl threw me down the rabbit hole and I am totally hooked!! We watched one episode while at the beach, and I watched a couple more when I was home last night. James Spader is excellent in this part.
    Better Late Than Never (Hulu...probably on Netflix too) : Not a movie either, but if you want some honest laughs this is a show for you. Henry Winkler, William Shatner, George Foreman, Terry Bradshaw, and their young sidekick (Jeff Dye) go on a trip to Asia for the first season. You can tell these guys had a wonderful time, and are good friends to boot. Beautiful scenery and tons of giggles abound.

    You did what you said you were going to do! :) I'm definitely checking out Daddy's Home and Better Late! I'm glad you watched Identical Strangers.

    So happy your wine drinking/screen watching weekend worked out. My daughter has Prime so I am trying to talk everyone in watching Identical Strangers. We were actually discussing the real story last week.

    This morning everyone was gone to work or school so we brought up Thunderbolt and Lightfoot on Netflix. So seventies!!! Middle aged Clint Eastwood and young Jeff Bridges (and a bit part by young Gary Busey). I remember us seeing it at a drive-in movie a long time ago in a galaxy far far away.
    Leftover pizza and fried eggs with coffee. (It was breakfast.)

    Creed 2 - At home on the sofa with Steve and dogs (Netflix DVD)
    We enjoyed the first Creed. It's a nice continuation of the Rocky saga without it completely revolving around Rocky himself. Dolph Lundgren is in this one...as well as a few sightings of Stallone's ex-wife Brigitte Nielsen. Decent movie to watch at home.

    Bohemian Rhapsody finally.
    Mindblowing!!
    On the couch with grandchildren. (My granddaughter cosplayed Freddie Mercury at comicon. She was a huge hit.)

    It was a big movie weekend for us!
    The Meg : Jaws on steroids...they definitely needed a bigger boat in this movie. I went in thinking that it was going to be terrible, but it was a fun movie with the right ratio of nakedness for Jason Statham throughout.
    Alpha : I wanted to like this movie more than I did. The story was very weak, but my dog Kricket LOVED it. She was entranced and barked/howled along with the pack. Then again she also participates in the Twilight Bark when 101 Dalmations is on.
    Overlord : It started out a little slow, but once it picked up it never stopped. WWII time period in France, and US is trying to take down a communications tower. Nazis and their science lab turns the movie upside down. Lots of blood and gore...it was lovely! I want to say JJ Abrams was involved w/ the movie too...maybe a producer?

    We spent Sunday night in a hotel. HBO had Dr. T and the Women and War of the Roses playing back to back all night. We fell asleep with the TV on and every time I would wake up a little; one of them would be playing. All night! Neither one of us ever did shut it off.

    LOL!
    When we stay at one of the DLR hotels, they play the Princess Bedtime Stories in a continuous loop. We'll just let it play most of the evening. I don't think I could sleep with it on though.

    Stan and Ollie.....I thought it was well-done and quite touching at times. Although, once in awhile, I'd think of John C. Reilly in Step Brothers and it pulled me away from the moment.

    Watched Bohemian Rhapsody with another set of grandchildren. I had a tough day and fell asleep in the middle.
    They left early so we watched FROGS!!! Classic Sam Elliot and Ray Milland. 1972

    Dumbo (Burton) - Dark Horse Red Blend & popcorn
    I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. It's a nice way to introduce Dumbo to a new generation of kids. I did need my Kleenex a couple of times too...I'm a sap. :oops:
