    Solid background noise as I work, but I also need to stop using it while I work, because I get sucked in and stop working!

    This was definitely a very entertaining film, and I'm glad it was on HBO Max (I live in Indiana and I'm surrounded by anti-vax rat lickers, so you are not seeing me in a theater any time soon) so I didn't have the whole "who lives, who dies" spoiled for me.

    Speaking of "who dies," I forgot how brutal James Gunn can be when he's not constrained by The Mouse. I mean, damn.

    Well, this was certainly interesting.

    I've never been a huge Kubrick fan. None of his films have ever appealed to me. However, as I was looking over my gaps in viewing, I noticed Dr. Strangelove could fill in for 1964, and I had heard good things. Plus, I needed to see how the hell Slim Pickens riding a bomb fit in to the context of the film.

    Bless HBO Max for giving us the opportunity to watch this at home. It's starting to get harder for me to stay in one spot for a 2.5 hour movie, especially one that sometimes starts to drag like this one.

    Don't get me wrong, for the most part, I enjoyed it. However, the highs were really, really high, and some of the lows were very, very low. Kind of uneven, but it was a good way to spend some time with the family after Christmas dinner. I just don't know if I'll be rushing to watch it again any time soon.
