Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , on October 31, 2017 by getbent57

It is Halloween.  Every year for years now have watched Shaun of the Dead on this day.  But thinking it might be time to watch a scary movie.  Not really into those.  But why not tonight.  There is all kinds on Netflix.  Just hard to choose one.  While not a big fan of Halloween.  What I like most about it is the half price candy the next day.

Gotham Season Four Update

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2017 by getbent57

As I am typing this (October 24, 2017) four episodes of Gotham season four have aired.  I must say, have been very impressed with the all of them.  Have like the past seasons.  However at times there were some problems.  They seamed to be all over the place with the storylines. This season it is flowing much better.  Very much hope this keep this going for the whole season.  If so it will be the best one yet.

The Dark Tower Blu-ray

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on October 23, 2017 by getbent57

The_Dark_Tower_Blu-rayWhile The Dark Tower movie didn’t do so well in the theaters.  I still want to watch it.  Have read the first book in The Dark Tower series, called The Gunslinger.  Did like the book and would like to read the others.  Can see why these books would be hard to turn into a movie.  It mixes western, sci-fi and fantasy really well together.  Wasn’t to sure when this movie would be out on Blu-ray/DVD.  Turns out every soon.  It will be out on digital platforms on October 17, 2017.  The on disc October 31.  Will be back with a review when I get to see it.

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , on October 22, 2017 by getbent57

Halloween is bit more than a week away.  So it is time for a TV tradition.   The Simpsons will air this years Treehouse of Horror episode tonight (October 22, 2017).  This will the 28th one.  Watch these every year.  For a few years they would air for some reason after Halloween.  While I am not a big fan of this day.  Do enjoy some of the special on TV.  Before The Simpsons air there will be a Halloween themed Bob’s Burgers as well.  Which is all ways awesome.
