That was a weird movie. But enjoyable.

Started on Oppenheimer. Halfway through I realized it's a 3 hour movie. I'll finish it some other day.

Yeah, it was a long one. It was one of the few movies I've watched in the past few years (not really a movie person) but I did enjoy it.

I was surprised Oppenheimer did not have an intermission given its length. I saw it on iMax the first outing from my accident recovery. Long tiring day but I love seeing big movies in iMax with my daughter...not likely to happen again.

Watched Oppenheimer in one sitting. Show was designed for that sort of audience and would be inauthentic if designed as a casual movie for the average movie nerd. There is always the pause button. Amazing invention for those easily distracted.

This made me think. Maybe I should grow a beard and start a cult. Convinced it would still be around if the cult leader had a beard.

just starting Homeland thanks to DIsney saying ….

You may like Homeland….🤪
It literally segued from the last episode of The Americans straight to the Homeland Pilot.

I thought they wound up The American's well

I wonder if shows like TA have made Americans more suspicious of strangers? neighbors? fed their paranoia??

I’ve been a big fan of Clair Danes since Romeo and Juliet and really enjoy Damian Lewis especially since Band of Brothers.

No swearing, no excess unrealistic gnu drama, just politicians doing their duty and having a great time during a election campaign

Tried The New Look on Apple but did not catch. Interesting cast and based on actual events ...might go back later.

This now
:pop:
I do like the wide screen format.

Wow..seriously rough watch. Apple didn't pull any punches.
