Plus: Ethical standards in film writing are a dumpster fire!
Also, I'm looking forward to your review of In The Heights. This thing has a 97 on Rotten Tomatoes. You're the prince that was promised right now. (Armond White is the old king).
I watched Frisky Dingo when I had Covid. It’s not something I would have watched normally, but you had mentioned liking it so I gave it a go. It was highly enjoyable and helped my quarantine time pass more pleasantly.
I want to tap out of Loki just to make my Facebook archnemesis unhappy so almost purely out of spite, and that weird critic pseudo-bribery is just making me hate...they probably got another showrunner who doesn't know who Mephisto is. I'm enjoying Sweet Tooth just to spite them.
I love "Streets of Fire" (I was 19 when it came out) and had it on VHS, and now blu-ray. Michael Pare was, well, not /bad/, but not good either. True of every movie I saw him in. Willem Dafoe as the Mad Biker was great. Lots of actors in first or early roles there. Pity it opened on the same weekend as Star Trek 3 and got crushed at the box office.
The soundtrack is pretty good, too, and spun off a top ten hit.
Many, many years ago, I worked for the local newspaper, and the managing editor decreed that no one-NO ONE—could accept anything of value from a source or client. This edict brought lots of confusion: What did “of value” mean? How much was too much? Did it include trinkets like free pens? What about tickets to events? The whole thing came crashing down when a reporter covering a concert arrived at her seat to discover she had been placed by several high level managers who had accepted the freebies, and the venue had thought they would all want to sit together.
