I'm waiting for Hamlet to start and so far I'm the only one here. Better seats were reserved in the theater when I got my ticket. I plan on moving if they forget to show up.

This is the National Theatre Live production of Hamlet, with Benedict Cumberbatch, correct? I saw it a couple of years ago, and it was excellent.

Yes. It was one of the Fathom Events at our local theater. I've been trying to pay more attention to those because they have a great variety of classic films, opera, Ghibli Studio anime. I wouldn't have a chance to see some of these without it. :)

I did see Wizard of Oz when it they re-released it in January. It's a different experience watching it on a big screen instead of tv.

I'm not really on board with Disney, but I have to say Beyonce and Donald Glover sound really good together:


I also love the arrangement of this song. The only issue I have is that Seth Rogan as Pumba sounds more like Kermit the Frog than the Pumba I'm familiar with. I guess it's just an adjustment.

I watched Support the Girls. Regina Hall was so great. I love characters who are competent. You root for her, not for her to win the lottery, get the guy, save the world, etc. Just to have some peace and quiet.

One of my fave movies last year as well. It was so grounded and real and yet you’re so invested.

This trailer for Yellow Rose about a young aspiring Filipino-American country singer in Texas and dealing with life with questionable legal status looks amazing:


Two-time and recent Tony nominee Eva Noblezada stars and Tony winner Lea Salonga is in a supporting role. Nice to see the two "Kims" from Miss Saigon in one movie. Alt-country musician Dale Watson composed the music.

22 July is a very good movie about how a young man (and his family) deal with the aftermath of a mass shooting. Specifically the 2011 attacks in Norway. Expertly direct by Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips, United 93, three Bourne movies), the movie starts with the attack, which is no easy task as in lesser hands it could have easily come off as sensationalism. This part is just a small part of the movie though, we then get to see the recovery of the central character, who is to testify at the trial of the attacker. Another interesting aspect of the movie is the lawyer picked by the man who committed the attack and how the two interact leading up to the trial. Definitely recommended.

And the new 007 is Lashana Lynch.
Though she's not Bond. I thought that was a clever way to switch over. I've been pretty bored with the Bond series for a while but Lynch was great in Captain Marvel (best part of the movie to me) and I'm looking forward to this new iteration.

I coincidentally saw both Bohemian Rhapsody and Yesterday this week-end. I thought Yesterday was the better movie and really enjoyed it despite not being a Beatles fan. The whole premise just sounded tacky to me but it was well put together, had a surprisingly sweet storyline, and people did the right thing! I would watch that movie again and I hardly ever feel that way.

Bohemian Rhapsody was kind of a hot mess. But the music was good.

I loved 'Yesterday' - and was skeptical. And as I was enjoying it in the middle - I thought how are they going to handle the ending and it was so good. There is one thing that is corny - but it is done well and warms my heart.
