  1. This looks great! I recently read a nonfiction narrative written by a woman who accidentally escaped North Korea. It was called The Girl with Seven Names. Everything in their is so foreign to me that it read like fiction!

  2. Hope this is the start of turning around the crap Apple TV has on its platform. I don’t think there’s anything watchable on it right now.

    1. There never was. It is interesting that many streamers are fledging right now, HBO Max too, Netflix, Disney and Amazon took all the customers. They will have to lower the prices, but I don't think they will, they will start charging separately for bigger movies, especially now as corona is here to freakin' stay. Many a film will go streamways, they even talked about James Bond going that way, but they asked for too much monies so nobody was interested LOL We will see if Wonder Woman might resurrect cinemas in December, otherwise they are all caput!

  3. Move theaters are still closed over here! The governor recently said that select counties can start to open theaters at 25% capacity by a certain date. Unfortunately, it costs more to run them at that capacity then they will make so they most likely won't be reopening any time soon.

    1. And after that nobody will be there to open them if this shit ever ends... I smell some nasty conspiracy there... most of the world believes democrates came up with corona to wreck chaos on Trumpie and I would not be surprised if that was true... he did attack big pharma most when he came to power... and they are the centre of the deep state if you ask me... I might get disappeared for this comment LOL

  4. I don't think cinema will last much longer. Ours are selling popcorn curbside to try to stay afloat here. I bet Wonder Woman won't even be able to save it.

    1. It is possible WW will get postponed again if corona attacks wildly as it is attacking right now! We are expecting curfew here quite soon.
