My wife loves action films (escpecially revenge) and we watched 'Avengement' absolutely outstanding revenge action film.
'Run All night' a decent Liam Neeson flick with the ersatz Robocop and support.
'The Last Stand' a recent Arnie that was pretty good.

All in all, not my bag 100% but I give thanks every day I don't have to watch the Notebook or something of that ilk

I wasn't as enthralled in this season as I was the others for reasons I can not define. I still tuned in religiously but I for one thought the last episode did not have that finale feeling (For our protagonist at least) which was a missed opportunity in my eyes.

If Anyone is interested.
I got Disney+ for the Mado (enjoyed it) and watched TROS (over six sessions). I found it a bit dull but nowhere near the crapfest of TLJ bbut i think it played too safe. Overall it revealed that they had no clue for the arc of the trilogy. I actually enjoyed all the Palp[atine bits (even though I wanted to hate it) and the film had some great moments (none of which involved Poe and Finn - shame)
I really was kind of moved by the death of kylo..the kiss the smile then he died..very well done iIMHO

the han solo bit and the luke bit seemed a bit out of place
REGrant was great
and although I was a bit meh on the Hux spy angle, I could see how his hatred of Kyl.o might force him to make poor decisions

Enjoying Schitt's Creek and Kims Convenience on Netflix...both Canadian 'sitcoms'.

David in Schitt's is such a great character as is MR KIM in the latter.

It's all politics/conspiracy theories until someone you know dies...and in my case, it's a colleague 50 (no underlying health conditions), and an uncle 45 (high blood pressure).

My Job has stopped me from going out to customers. A colleague's son has it and it is awful (and he is only 22 and can't breathe). my parents are in their 70s and my mum keeps going to the shops for bits and bobs!!!!! she will never change.

and I keep getting people saying it's just a cold (like the Italians did).
I work in the construction supply industry and possibly saw it all a bit early from rushes and backorders on hand sanitizer and masks and tp. scary stuff.

we will never know if we overreacted or acted too soon.
but we will know for sure if we acted too little too late.

Been away for a long while. things were good but I've been cut off from a med that helped me keep my weight down and moderate my drinking. now I've put on 4 stone again and resumed drinking too much. trying to not drink in November. I still have to take clients out which is a ball ache.
my writing is still keeping from the end times. each time I get a review or a download helps me. ridiculous I know but it's true. pity the reader like the violent stuff of mine which is hard to write (as in takes it out of me). I wrote YA novel as a palette cleanser and I have sold 1 copy.
thanks for listening.
also i still refuse to capitalize (only do so in books and even then under protest)

I boycotted Solo (which I fully intended to see at the cinema and ultimately enjoyed when i leeched of friends DVD) because I loathed TLJ (I mean properly Loathed)...not only was I Bored in the cinema but the whole casino thing I felt was an insult to me as a fan.

so I can not pay money for 9...call me a man-boy or an entitled child but there it is.

but the Mandalorian looks good but I will buy on DVD because there are tooooooooo many subscription services as there is and I'm skint as fook because I invest all my spare dosh in buying tables at conventions to promote my books.

I tired at book 3 but have 4-5 waiting for me to read...i enjoyed it but i thought the female character too interchangeable for my liking and the whole (insert the nun religion thing here trials) a bit dull and over convoluted.
