If you want to feel that some good came of the global pandemic and shutdown, I highly recommend watching this:

Narrated by David Attenborough, never-before-seen footage shows how our living in lockdown opened the door for nature to bounce back and thrive. Acros…

If that link doesn't work eventually, it's "The Year Earth Changed" on Apple TV+.

Nobody, birdie. The story is a bit thin, but the action was much better than I thought it would be. I still won't see Bob Odenkirk as an action figure, but… his stunt double did pretty good, I guess? 🙂

Mortal Kombat. Par. Don’t really know the game. Fun action. Meh storyline. Captain Obvious me. 
 

Stowaway. Bogey. Thinly written. Some interesting space scenes. Ending makes you go that’s it?

Cruella, easy birdie, and I'm trying really hard not to give it an eagle. I think I'll manage because I'm not sure it's super rewatchable, but it was very good as an origin story, very good even to me as a guy in a story about fashion and women, and… Emma Stone kicked butt, honestly. Such expressive eyes, and she controls them so well, and it's just so well acted by Emma Thompson as well.

73% critic, and 97% audience score at Rotten Tomatoes.

So yeah, a solid birdie.

So was the movie a par but Emma Stone the eagle, resulting in the birdie?  You can separate them...

No, you can't. Because you can't just watch Emma Stone or something. 🙂

Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It.

Bogey. I enjoyed the Conjuring series for the most part. But this one had the tired old theme of possession and demons. If I have to see another demon or possessed person with their joints going backwards I’m gonna lose it. Lol.

Went on a Christopher Reeve kick last week. He's an underrated actor, so much charisma. 

Somewhere in Time - IDK if it's a birdie or an eagle, but it's magnificent. my wife said she didn't like the ending, but she's still been talking about it days later so it must be great. 

Deathtrap - easy birdie. Reeve more than holds his own against Michael Caine. Marvelous.

Marauders, bogey. The military tie-in stuff was weak, which made the whole story line weak.

The American, par. I almost gave this a bogey, too. Normally assassin movies rate highly for me, but this one, meh. He was a gunsmith and an assassin? I don't know. Did he die at the end? He knew he was injured. Mortally so? Whatever. This isn't Butch Cassidy.

Vantage Point, par. It's nearly a birdie, but I can only assume Zoe Saldana dies, so… needed more loose ends tied up. Actually, I'm not 100% certain of everyone's ties. Whose brother is who? What? Huh? Maybe I just didn't pay close enough attention.

Gringo, with Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried and a bunch of nobodies. Bogey. It was an okay use of time, with some "capers" and "escapades" and the ending was perfectly satisfying, but… meh. It was just fine.

The Double, a 2011 Richard Gere/Topher Grace film about a Russian assassin.

Par. Better than I expected.

The Usual Suspects, with my wife. Birdie. Almost an eagle, but it doesn't entirely hold up if you know the ending. There aren't that many little clues planted throughout, unlike some films of this type.

And yes, I've been watching a lot of movies lately for some reason.

I don't know why, but I just enjoy watching this movie. I've probably seen it like a dozen times now. Maybe I don't over analyze it, and more so just enjoy the characters just getting fooled. Like, I don't nit pick movies much anyways, or if I know the surprise ending then I don't really care if some earlier plot stuff doesn't hold up as well.

The Suicide Squad.  Missed a two foot birdie putt for a par.  So much better than the dreck of the first one.  Lots of fun, swearing, and gore.  I made it a par instead of a birdie because a few most of the characters I liked didn't make it to the end.

    • Bill Haas could hit it 25 yards farther, but hates seeing the ball get really high up in the air. He feels like he has very little control over it when it gets up there.
    • Finished Spider-Man and Miles Morales. What fun games. The web slinging through the city lives up to the hype as well as knowing what it's like to have the powers of Spider-Man and the fights never got old. The story for S-M and MM were both very good and they got a lot of details of Manhattan right, although the map was off. Almost finished with God of War and did not expect it to be so good. Having your son along the whole way enhances the story so much. Next up will be Death Stranding and then Bloodborne probably. Going through the Playstation exclusives.
    • Does this answer it for you? FlightScope Speed & Acceleration Profiles - Launch Monitor, Golf Ball Tracking | Golf Simulators | FlightScope.com Find out why FlightScope golf launch monitors' speed & acceleration profiles are huge for club fitting. Check our sample data sets to see it for yourself. Or this? Oh, I gotcha now. The stand has some nice features, but mainly… I can note what notch creates a tilt of 12°, or 17° as preferred by Awesome Golf, or 16° or whatever… and then put the back leg in those notches without needing the tool. I can also do this more easily on uneven floors — in either direction — to adjust for the tilt or roll of the floor itself. If my floor slopes down and to the left, 12° with the tool won't be 12° and level with the Mevo+, so I can use the screw legs to adjust the Mevo+ to be 12°/0°.
