What are you watching today?

Sooooo today I started the reboot-origin story of Perry Mason.  It’s so freaking good!  I’m a tv mystery fan (matlock, Colombo, psych, monk & others) & watched plenty of the original & 90s Mason show over the years.  This has that HBO dark grit to it.  It’s like Hitchcock on steroids.  It’s certainly not for kids, but if you are familiar with HBO you won’t be shocked.  Anyhoo, yes.  👍 make some 🍿 & get comfy on the sofa!  
 

 

That looks terrific, and I did enjoy Matthew Rhys' performance in The Americans.  I can't get HBO without switching my broadband provider but perhaps one day.  :)

I'm mostly watching biblical [Jewish and Christian] studies videos, and mostly from three channels at the moment.  One is from a specifically Christian point of view, the others aren't.  These are the three videos I've just watched. 

Then this series of 3.

And this is the specifically Christian one.

Oh I know how it goes.  For 3 years I didn’t get any Viacom channels (mtv, vh1, Nickelodeon, tv land or AMC *which meant 3 years w/o the walking dead).  HBO just came back  now after over a year of contract disputes.  

It is really good- it’s a different take on the character & deals with a lot of the backwards mindsets of the time, along with being more progressive with casting & character biographies.  

I never saw the most of the Americans.  For some reason we stopped watching during season 3.  I need to finish that one day.   Matthew Rhys was especially good in the Mr. Rogers biography “A beautiful day in the neighborhood.”  I bawled my way thru it.

I watched something a few weeks back about the polytheistic practices of the ancient Jews.  That sort of thing I don’t necessarily understand but find interesting to read about.  I think I went down that rabbit hole after watching Raiders of the Lost Ark for the billionth time. Somehow I went from asking google “what parts of Raiders has any truth to the ark story” to that topic. 😃

I love bird & squirrel watching.   I’ve not had a backyard since having to move across the state for work in 2015.  We are on course to move back to the area we consider “home” in the spring & a prerequisite is a fenced yard with trees so my Boston Terriers can play off leash & I can get back to bird & squirrel watching.  This is from the last home I had a backyard in:

I just finished watching Hacksaw Ridge while I was doing laundry and getting things ready for the coming day.

I didn't even realize Mel Gibson directed it, even though I've seen it about three times already..

I just really love the love story, as well as how there just was no way Desmond Doss was going to budge from what he truly believed in..

We watched the new Black Widow movie.. OMG it was so good!

Her sister Yelena Belova is so good in it and she is so funny and so bad ass.. She in no way is a side kick in this by no means..

I could watch it again just to see her kick butt and make me laugh and cry, all over again.

I'm not gonna say anything to give anything away even though I really feel like talking about it..I just don't want to wreck it for anyone..

So here's the trailer instead.. hehehe

It’s a gloomy thunderstorm day.  Ripe for hiding inside so I found 3 movies today.  They were all really good. Really legendary actors.  Dark content, not for kids.  I’ve never paid much attention to Jared Leto but his character in the little things made my skin crawl he was so good at being creepy.  👍

I don’t think I’ve watched this in the past 20 years.  I’m not sure why- Nicolas Cage is one of my all time favorites (Moonstruck & Valley Girl).  I just noticed it’s a Coen Brothers film- which explains why it’s amazing.

It must be Nicholas Cage day . :D  I'm in the middle of watching this movie I haven't seen for a long time.

 

I get that one & “Next” confused.  Both are great suspense movies.

 i learned today why things used to be counted in sets of 12 and not sets of 10

 

is at 2:12 of this video. Mr Chaudhray in answer to the question: How many letters are there in the english alphabet?

used the fingers on one hand to to count them. 3 counts per finger. Which corresponds to 3 knuckles per finger. 4 x 3 = 12

he did it again later in the video to answer the question: How many days are there in a calendar year

he looked at his fingers and said there are 12 months. Then counted off the over/under days on his fingers and said: 365

I've gone back to Downton Abbey for some lovely things to look at, good stories, great acting, and some cracking lines.

 

I can't wait until the second movie comes out next March.

Not sure why, but I’ve watched all the Annabelle movies in the last day or so.  She scares the 💩 out of me.  (Dolls in general creep me out) So yea I get a good fright fest, but then I’m on edge so I watched a sappy rom-CoM to cope.  😂
