I believe they're streaming on Movie Spree too.

Thanks, but I'm not ready for another pay-stream site. 

I'll have to wait until I can find it either on media or one one of the sites I am already a member.

Sadly there are not very many opportunities to legally watch high-caliber rugby in the US. Soccer is practically everywhere, rugby not so much,

 

There is a ton of Rugby.  I just deleted over 40 matches because my DVR was overwhelmed.  Two Australian Leagues (Super League and Premiership) plus the UK league.  They were playing before soccer restarted.

The City On the Egde of Forever. Arguably the best episode of the original series, and certainly one of the most powerful. I suppose that every sci-fi series eventually addresses the issue of "one (or

Just rewatched The Shadow. I may be in the minority, but I really liked Baldwin's Shadow, and the characters in it. John Lone was excellent as the over the top Shiwan Khan, Tim Curry made a great toad

I remember when there was a decent Nancy Drew show on tv, but back then it was called Veronica Mars.

I went to the theater to see New Mutants, because I figure if it finally hitting theaters causes the end of the world, might as well have good seats.

 

It was actually pretty darn good, though I regret the changes to the nature/origin of a couple of the characters, especially now that the X-Men franchise is owned by Disney and supernatural explanations are back on the table. And I am casting SERIOUS side-eye at the director for making Roberto white because he wanted someone believable as a rich Brazillian, though I have no complaints about Henry Zaga's performance. Most of the characters were true to their comics personalities if not origins, and well acted. It falls in the upper half of the X-Men movies for me.

My theater allowed mask removal once you were in your (stadium) seat, though if I hadn't had a partitioned row to myself I'd probably have worn mine anyway. I've found the KN95 disposable masks to be much more comfortable than the blue surgical masks or homemade options—wore one through a 3-hour live theatre performance last month with very little discomfort.

Ugh...I'm guessing magic for.....Magik...is out?

It's inconclusive, but I think the various things she's able to do are treated as a very versatile set of mutant powers rather than actual magic (though it seems she may keep the codename). I do give them props for coming up with a workable substitute for the Belasco backstory that hits many of the same personal trauma beats without needing the X-Men's involvement.

This was a finished movie before Disney bought it. They put no money in it, and asked nothing from the director. Anything they get from this will be kickback on the money they gave to buy fox's entertainment division.

I tried to watch Disney's attempt to get into the sci-fi market in 1979, The Black Hole. I tried to have an open mind about it, but about half an hour I had to give up.

 

So much stupid...

 

In between an "adorable" little robot companion who looked just silly, an enormous spaceship that looked equally stupid, all the signs of a Forbidden Planet outright remake, and completely uninterested performances from every actor on screen playing characters thin as cardboard (it's like everyone, including such distinguished actors as Maximillian Schell, Anthony Perkins, and Ernest Borgnine, knew this was crap but needed to collect the paycheck anyway), itwas such a perfect storm of **** that it was utterly unwatchable. Even MST3K couldn't make this entertaining.

THEM!

 

Two of my favorite sci-fi monster movies from the 1950s, and inspiration for many subsequent imitators, mostly inferior. Both notable for intelligent scripts and a strong, smart, female main character. I also have always thought Dr. Thurgood Elsen and Dr. Harold Medford would have gotten along splendidly.

We have super drafts that will allow Dr. Thurgood Elsen and Dr. Harold Medford to be on the same team. You'd just have to pick the draft. And we are nearly finished our Monsters vs Aliens super draft that can made that happen.
