    I've read Beowulf in the original German. Beowulf ist wie ein Held zum siegen.

    Just watched Straight outta Compton. Bought it when it came out and thought it was decent but not great.

    I'd say it was much better on the second viewing. Maybe I was in a bad mood the first time.

    I could see Compton having that effect on someone.

    I know that a lot of people have no interest in any takes on superpowers even if they deviate from the norm, but if you can muster any for a somewhat fresh take, I suggest Freaks.

    I saw Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and despite Oscar nominations i thought it was a bad movie.

    I enjoyed the Joker even though it was a very dark movie and a bit disturbing. Gemini Man was ok with Will Smith.

    I don't like gore and I don't like "horror" or "scary" movies generally speaking but I HAD to take a chance on Midsommer and my goodness am I glad I did. For the visuals and cinematography alone totally worth it. I won't watch it again but as a one time experience I loved it.

    I don't either... I tell people if I wanted to be scared I'd watch the news.

    The original language of Beowulf was old English, which is closer to German than modern English, but it is not German.

    Anyway, that is still friggin' awesome.
