    I rented that new Elvis movie for a dollar at RedBox and it was horrible.
    I knew it was gonna be horrible but I had no idea it would be that bad.
    I can't believe I made it 20 minutes before shutting it off.
    It might be the worst all around movie concept that I ever experienced and I only watched 20 minutes.
    Tom Hanks was horrible, and the editing was atrocious.
    Not sure why they made Elvis all effeminate right from the get-go.

    I got Bullet Train for a dollar 50 and it wasn't too bad.
    Guy Ritchie Rip Off with shades of Tarantino.
    I fast forwarded through the gory parts because I don't need to see blood squirting out of people's necks to get the point.
    That's just straight-out blood-murder-porn and it's not really my thing.
    A few Cameos from A-Listers.

    And I got Tom Hanks other movie which is the remake of Otto.
    I held off on this movie because I knew it was going to be the wokiest of the bunch.
    It started off pretty strong as I was enjoying the sarcasm and attitude that I recognize in my day to day life.
    But it faded by the middle to the end of the movie, and I failed to make it to the complete end.
    But I got the point, and it had a couple of decent moments.
    I fast forwarded through the transgender bullshit.

    The fourth movie was by far the best and I digitally rented that for 7 bucks, so they raped me pretty good on that price.
    I couldn't really see anything woke inside of it.
    I can totally relate to the two loud and abusive characters as they remind me of myself.
    Yelling at people and calling them every name in the book, lol.
    I can't help it.
    Grew up in that Era and East Coast Environment.
    I try to tone it down, but I always end up hitting the ceiling for some trivial and minute reason.
    I thought it was better than that new movie Tetris but similar.
    I feel like they used an Andy Samberg doppelganger.
    The guy looked and acted just like him with very similar mannerisms and characteristics.
    I'm sure they got this actor for far less money.
    Anyways... BlackBerry (2023)

    P.S. I'm guessing the movie (BlackBerry) is a lot of fiction but since I don't know the actual history, I found the movie to be entertaining enough for a viewing.
    I never owned a Blackberry, and I had no need to own one.
    I also didn't associate with anyone who used a Blackberry.
    It took me a long time to actually get an iPhone and that's because I didn't pay for the phone, and I do not pay for the service.
    Fuck Phones!
    I didn't have one growing up because we were too poor, and I've never felt that need or addiction to them.
    And I grew up when Rotary Phones were still a thing and in some of my families' homes.

    Thanks for the recos Monet. I remember you had mentioned Tetris some weeks back and now that it is out, I am going to watch it, as well as Blackberry.

    I watched Blackberry. Thanks again for the reco. It was a pretty intense film. I remember seeing people using Blackberrys, but I never had one either. IIRC, it developed a cult following even after the implosion of the company, but like you, I'm not that familiar with the history of the phone or company.
    The film accurately depicts the fact that even if you come up with a genius idea, and implement it, the Big Boys can often catch up and surpass you or just buy you out. I thought the film nailed the nerd culture of engineers. And how a corporate structure can change and corrupt a person. Like you said there were probably some embellishments. Solid film for sure.

    Great Breakdown!
    Now go watch Elvis, Bullet Train and Otto and report back
    Just Kidding... do whatever you want to do tableplay.

    Cheers M8. I am going to download Bullet Train and watch it (it's from 2022 so I'm not sure how I missed it originally). I have watched some of Tetris and will watch the rest of it piecemeal over the next few days. Tom Hanks is in Otto so I will have to get motivated to watch it. With regards to John Wick 4, I watched it a few weeks back for continuity purposes, but like you wrote earlier, the Wick films got progressively worse.

    Otto is ok for the first 30 minutes or so.
    I heard the original is better but since I now know the premise and most of the ending I'll probably never watch the original.
    Near the middle of Otto it gets Transgendery and the movie is basically Woke with all the diversity.
    Throw in an overweight white guy trying to lose weight.
    They touch all the bases with the black neighbors and Hispanic move ins.
    Mix in a Transgender because that's the current formula.
    Like I say... funny or humorous for the first 20 to 30 minutes or so.
    Tom Hanks is still doing Tom Hanks but it was more likeable in the 80s and 90s.

    I finished Tetris. I thought the movie was decent. Robert Maxwell, the deceased owner of the Daily Mirror who was trying to get the various rights to Tetris during the movie, was of course Ghislaine Maxwell's father (Jeffrey Epstein's girlfriend and fellow child trafficker who now sits in jail waiting to get suicided) as you probably know. The movie makes no mention of this during the ending credits, but there would be no reason for this I suppose since it had nothing to do with Tetris. They did a great job depicting the scenery of the Soviet Union as it was in the late 80's. Obviously they are depicting the old Soviet Union in its worst light (kind of like Firefox with Eastwood) since we are again at odds with Russia via proxy. Thanks again for the reco Monet.

    I didn't put two and two together.
    Thanks for clarifying that he was her father.
    I don't really know or follow much about them or any Elites in general.
    I know they are up to no good.
    Most of us are.
    My issue is when they start telling you or I what we can or cannot do or they shove their agenda/ideals down our throats.
    That's when I lose my mind.

    Sure, no problem Monet. Her father, a Mossad asset, died under mysterious circumstances - he fell overboard, off his yacht and drowned (i.e. he was assassinated, like fellow Mossad asset Epstein was in jail). It's probably not much fun for a person once they are no longer viewed as an asset but rather a liability. Yes, lately the elites have really started meddling in the lives of the common man. Probably because with AI and robotics coming into place, our usefulness in the working sense is quite diminished and we can take on a stronger role as disposable play things. For example, their strong belief in Satanism has led them to try and create a homogeneous, genderless society - the effect that this will have on productivity is now inconsequential due to the AI and tech just mentioned so they can ratchet things up. In Tetris, Robert Maxwell's ties to Russia were through a friendship with Gorby. But in reality, he had a relationship with Russia because he was an intelligence agent (he not only did work for Israel, but also the Soviets). Obviously, a woke (IMHO wokeness is a social engineering endeavor of the Satanic elites - the woke are just useful idiots of the elites) company like Apple is not going to reveal this sort of actuality.

    The actor in that movie (Tetris) has an uncanny resemblance to the actual person.
    Anyways, I'm in the process of a Late Whole House Spring Cleaning.
    I stumbled upon this DVD in my collection.
    I had really high hopes when it first came out and was disappointed at the theatre.
    I didn't like the love interest and the age gap between her and Nick Nolte.
    I also didn't like her personality as it wasn't a believable match of the lifestyle or crew personalities in my opinion.
    But the movie is 10 times better than anything they put out nowadays.
    And it has a Thief mixed in with a Degenerate Gambling Heroin Addict so there is that.
    Funny how they were pushing transgenderism way back then.
    This might have been the first movie to touch upon it before the recent explosion of propaganda.
    It's Nick Nolte for goodness sakes.
    Got to be somewhat good enough for a viewing.
    I do love the run-up scenes though and Nick Nolte talking to the Casino Manager in the surveillance room near the ending.
    I may have already recommended it before.
    I have a tendency of talking or posting about the same movies that I watch over and over again.

    I enjoyed the movie, however I don't remember it too well since it has been 21 years since I saw it at the theater. Thanks for the reco. You're spot on with regard to how much effort they are putting in to shoving transgenderism down our throats. Maybe the Satanists feel that if they make one gargantuan push now they can take everything over sooner rather than later. Regardless, the scale of this whole brainwashing operation is utterly massive.

    After all the Bond Talk I ran into this movie on YouTube.
    Not recommending it as I don't recall ever watching it.
    I'm gonna watch it anyways because that's what I do.
    And it's free for now...

    GOLD (1974)

    It's ok.
    The song with the intro and credit roll was pretty darn good.
    People who have read the book said it was way better.
    I thought the character development was way too fast in this movie.
    I thought the storytelling was realistic whereas people have affairs and corporations exploit humans to make massive amounts of money.
    And other corporations will try to sabotage competitors to take them over and control the markets.
    That all made sense but was just too darn fast in the movie.
    It made me dislike just about all of the characters.
    Better than most movies made in the last 10 to 20 years but the story just had an odd flavor to it for me.

    Great find Monet. I really enjoyed this one from Commander Bond. No reason not to milk the momentum from Live and Let Die with this solid thriller. Very realistic mine scenes. Towering Inferno, Earthquake (also '74) and Gold - disaster films were big at that time (although Gold was sabotage not a natural disaster). Apparently senior executive managers at multinational gold mining companies are not above taking commercial airline flights.

    Fair enough Monet. So in this case, these were corrupt psychopathic stock market investors trying to drive up the price of gold stock from companies not affected by the destruction of Bond's companies' mine fields. I agree that this movie was very fast-paced relative to that period of time. Kowalski was a dick so I am glad he got killed.

    Yeah, I just needed more backstory and I needed Bonds Character to have more morality to him.
    I needed the romance to develop more slowly.
    Shit was so darn quick lol.
    Not saying it doesn't happen like that, but it didn't work for me in the film.
    You're right though.
    Mine Scenes Good.
    Lots of things to like in this movie.
    The aerial maneuvers were good.
    My favorite part was when the guy ran down the other guy in the Rolls Royce lol.
    That shit was funny.
    And of course, he ended up digging two graves as the Chinese Proverb said.
    I was just thinking they had too many board members making this decision.
    I was like all these people have to die.
    You can't have all those witnesses!
    I'm pretty sure that Arthurs Butler was going to send them all bombs in the mail eventually.

Apparently senior executive managers at multinational gold mining companies are not above taking commercial airline flights.
    Yeah, I just needed more backstory and I needed Bonds Character to have more morality to him.
    I needed the romance to develop more slowly.
    Shit was so darn quick lol.
    Not saying it doesn't happen like that, but it didn't work for me in the film.
    You're right though.
    Mine Scenes Good.
    Lots of things to like in this movie.
    The aerial maneuvers were good.
    My favorite part was when the guy ran down the other guy in the Rolls Royce lol.
    That shit was funny.
    And of course, he ended up digging two graves as the Chinese Proverb said.
    I was just thinking they had too many board members making this decision.
    I was like all these people have to die.
    You can't have all those witnesses!
    I'm pretty sure that Arthurs Butler was going to send them all bombs in the mail eventually.
    Yes I believe the plan was to kill off most of the syndicate members (along with Bond). The German guy didn't follow instructions and put his money into action earlier than instructed, so he got the bomb first (in the form of a present, which also killed his family at their Christmas meal you'll recall). The other deaths were implied to happen at a later time of course as you mentioned. Yes the car death scene near the end was terrific. It's possible (like one in 10000) Bond's boss could have survived as a cripple with pulverized legs - but maybe I misinterpreted that scene and there is no chance he survived rather than an exceedingly small chance that did.

    Great quote from the movie: "What I want I can get for free" - said to Kowalski by Tex (Bond's two underground night shift and day shift managers).

    That was a good quote.
    Nice Catch.
    If you didn't realize it, Peter Hunt directed this movie.
    He also directed On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
    He worked as an Editor on Goldfinger, Dr. No, Thunderball and some other Bond Movies.
    That's why the action scenes in GOLD were so good.
