    I'd need a 3D TV. Maybe sometime in the future. I think old 3D movies would be a hoot.


    My all-region Blu-ray player is hooked up (quite complicated, given some of my other equipment). I just have to test it. No instructions were included on how to switch regions. I had to look it up on line. I understand these players, though sold through Amazon, are are modified by a third party. But it wouldn't kill them to toss in a piece of paper informing the buyer about how to make the switch.

    I prefer Pearl to X. Nice character study with a great performance. Mia Goth is fantastic.

    rewatched The Stepfather (1987) yesterday, nice flick. It's free on several streaming platforms like Tubi by the way.

    I think Pearl is even better than X, which I loved. The movie is basically a showcase for Mia Goth, but she delivers, especially with a heartbreaking monologue near the end of the film (not really a spoiler, I think). I also loved Orphan: First Kill, which I wasn't expecting.

    I still have to see Pearl. I loved X and I’m excited to see more of the character. Last year was pretty excellent for horror. X, Nope, Men, the new Hellraiser, Barbarian, Hatching, Crimes of the Future, all excellent.

    Horror is my favorite genre. I could spend all day listing favorite movies. I’ll just say that Texas Chainsaw is my favorite overall, and my top 2 of the last decade are The Blackcoat’s Daughter and The Eyes of My Mother

    And somehow Nope didn't nominated for anything, much less Best Picture (but Avatar, Elvis & Top Gun did) and Mia Goth didn't get a nomination for Pearl.

    Horror never gets the respect it should. I thought maybe the Oscars turned a corner when Get Out got a handful of nominations but apparently not :(
    In my ideal world, Bones and All would sweep the next Oscars. It’s not horror but it’s at least horror adjacent and I’m convinced that’s why it didn’t get a single nomination

    Mia Goth's monologue near the end of Pearl is astonishing. She should have been nominated for something, just for that scene.
