    Electric Jesus

    ★★

    Not gonna lie, at least one of the songs from this Christian 80’s Hair Metal version of Almost Famous got stuck in my head:

    🎵Commandos for Christ! Let’s all go commando!🎵

    Unfortunately, this is the type of movie that you put on, watch emotionlessly, and at the end say ‘That was fine’ and never think about it again (unless you start randomly singing the music).  

    Also, some odd side effects of indie filmmaking were present throughout as well. Unnecessary…

    The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    ★★★

    Decided to check out some silent film era Alfred Hitchcock.

    My wife watched more of my son’s reactions through the movie than the…

    Top Gun

    ★★★★

    In preparation for the assumed IMAX orgasm known officially as Top Gun 2: Maverick.

    Very much considered buying the 4K Blu Ray from Walmart for $20. The wife said our DVD copy would suffice (my Blu ray player upscales to 4k, so essentially the same thing, right???? 😒).

    Things to note:
    - Maverick going into the ladies room and doing the close, creepy smile stare at Charlie was unsettling.

    - Iceman wasn’t really the dick I remember him being…he was…
