    Why have I never seen Saturday Night Fever before?

    I don't know.

    But now I have. Holy crap that's a great movie.

    I'm curious what MC thinks about Black Crab. Several days later and I'm still thinking about it. I feel like it's not what I was sold with the trailer, in a good way. I feel like I haven't really seen anything like that before (okay, if you break it wide enough, yes, but I mean at a closer personal level, it's an odd duck).

    It's also interesting to consider how relevant it is to the current Russia/Ukraine situation, while film folk understand this had to be prepped and filmed a year or two in advance of this conflict.

    Question for those of you who subscribe to multiple streaming services: which one has the best movie catalogue? In Korea, we only have access to Netflix and Disney+ at the moment, and I'm becoming more and more disenchanted with Netflix as it culls its movie library (mostly movies from other studios) and remains mostly focused on TV series, which honestly I don't care about at all. I want a streaming service that offers a deep catalogue of older films (Netflix and Disney+ absolutely suck for that). I'm thinking of binning both Netflix and Disney+ and picking up HBO Max when it comes to Korea, but because it is not here yet, the webpage does not let me browse the library - I just get the page "Sorry, HBO Max is not available in your region".

    We picked up hbomax for a month so I could see the snyder cut, and well, we've kept it because they keep releasing interesting stuff and they have a pretty deep library. They suffer the same problem I have with Netflix though, in that, they almost seem to hide the shit I'm interested in. You have to search and search. It's weird. It's like I'm the black sheep viewer and they almost try to hide the cool shit, but that's MC, innit? We aren't the mainstream viewer they're trying to snag.

    Yes I'm aware how stupid I sound saying that as I started off with derp a derp me need see superheroes! Lol

    Trans I really wish you could get hoopla and kanopy (I think talked this before?). Kanopy would be totally up your alley I think. If you can access it I would totally hook you up with an American library card to give you entry.

    Thanks for the offer! I'll wait for a while to see whether HBO Max gets to Korea (rumors it will be sometime this year) and what its library looks like. Depending on how it is, I'll ditch Netflix and Disney and then maybe re-look at your generous offer for Kanopy. Actually, maybe I should see if Korea has something similar...

    Anyway, ideally, I will have just two streaming services and.... acquire other stuff elsewhere.

    The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert was a treat.

    It was my first time, too. And yeah it's a delight. Had been on my shelf for probably 15 years unwatched.

    Bad taste to make a joke about her if he knew what she'd been going thru. Worse taste to smack someone and cuss him out on live TV at the Oscars on what he surely must have known was going to be his night. Talk about swinging between the highs and lows of a career....and in the span of half an hour. Yikes.

    The whole thing was wild and I'm pretty sure that was not scripted at all.
    Blog!

    It's a luscious mix of words and tricks
    That let us bet when you know we should fold
    On rocks I dreamt of where we'd stepped
    And of the whole mess of roads we're now on

    Not a problem with Criterion streaming - that's my go-to site. Prime fills out the rest, sometimes I need to pay a few dollars for the viewing on that one though.

    I understand 100% why you have those thoughts and feelings.

    There are movies from my childhood that I cannot stand for the same reasons.

    I doubt anyone could lol. My sister damaged me with that movie. I'm not exaggerating when I say she watched it at full volume 3-5 times a day, mimicking the songs and dance moves until she knew them beat for beat.

    I hot damn hate that fucking movie to the bowels of my soul.

    But I'm not unaware that I'm unique situation lol

    I don't think you are, though. I know lots of people who find it insufferable.

    I'm the one who gave Scream 3 a 5 star rating though, so...

    Even with the accidental poor timing of the revelation of his aphasia diagnosis right afterward, this article still comes off as a hit piece overall:
