A Movie Suggestion

May I recommend something for your Saturday night viewing pleasure? Stan and Ollie. Probably not what you’re expecting, and much better than you can imagine. 🙂 https://www.vudu.com/content/movies/details/Stan-Ollie/1034983

Family Movie Night

My family kindly indulged me on Family Movie Night a couple weeks ago, and were good with watching Mary Poppins Returns. My husband and I both agreed it was an excellent “throwback” movie, in the Disney style of musical, much like the original Mary Poppins. There was singing, there was dancing, there were bright and bold colors. Not a single supercalifragilisticexpialidocious could be found, however. That give me a tiny sad.

Regardless, it was a fun movie, and quite nostalgic, even though it was new.

At the end, I asked my son, who is 17, what he thought, since he’s never seen the original.

His reply?

“Spoiler alert, Poppins is Thanos.”

Can I be silly for a minute?

I caught this interview yesterday, because I’ve come to really love the whole Avengers movies that have come out in recent years.  I’m married to, and the mother of, comic book heroes fans, and it’s just natural that eventually the love would flow to me as well.  I became a big Iron Man fan, thanks to Robert Downer Jr’s portrayal of that character, until I saw Captain America.  Cap totally won me with the line, “There’s only one God ma’am, and I’m pretty sure He doesn’t dress like that,” from the first Avengers movie.  Now I’m a Cap girl, all the way.

So the next Avengers movie is coming out in a few days and there are interviews with the stars all over the place, promoting the movie, which looks like it’s going to be epic, by the way.  I caught this one with Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans, and just cracked up.  Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans criticized for ‘sexist’ comments

Today I see that a bunch of people have their undies in a bunch over the cracks they made in the interview.  I nearly broke my eyeballs from rolling them so hard.  I’ve heard a lot of women say worse things about men after they’ve been dumped – real women talking about real men, not fictional characters.  I think our society may have lost its sense of humor.  So I tweeted #BlackWidow loves #TheHulk because #SizeMatters.  Winking smile

Think anyone will get the joke?
