One of our cats does the same, except with a hair scrunchie. She will carry it around in her mouth and occasionally leave it in the food dish.

Mine loves pipe cleaners for that.

Friday we went out to see the new Doctor Strange movie, but then realized our tickets were for Saturday evening. Still wanting to be out of the house, we went to see Everything, Everywhere, All at Once instead. It was really good! Weird, but good. Definitely recommend it!

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was good too, but Everything, Everywhere was even better.

I want to see both, but I just can’t build up the momentum to get my wife and me to a theater.

It’s the way he says “penguins” isn’t it?

I’m just reading “Hail to the Chin” where Bruce talks about cameos in Spider-Man movies, and the car :slight_smile:

Been watching Outer Range on Amazon prime. I think it’s in some folks here’s wheelhouse.

I can confirm that there are actual houses in the Midwest that look like the inside of the Tillerson ranch house and it is not even one standard deviation outside of what is out there.

It’s next on our list (after being recommended by my wife’s friend who also recommended The Witcher) right after we finish the last episodes of Ozark.

The last time I tried to go the screening was sold out, but I got to it last night, and oh yes it’s an excellent time. Also totally bonkers. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Today I went to The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent which is similarly wonderful and recommended. Bless you, Nic Cage.

My local film society restarted very recently, so tomorrow I’m seeing A Fantastic Woman (which I also saw at a festival in 2017, and it deserves a repeat viewing).

The first of the resumed screenings was Andrey Zvyagintsev’s Leviathan which I’d been wanting to see ever since being stunned by his film Loveless a few years later, so I was very happy that it didn’t end up being bumped from the programme (even if, in the end, Leviathan didn’t have quite the same effect on me as the later film). I’m hoping that at some point I’ll get a chance to see his earlier films.

I finished watching the first season of Altered Carbon.

Having read the book… honestly, I’m impressed. There were a few changes I remember (I read the book years ago), and sure, the nudity and violence are both over-the-top, but it was a pretty dang faithful translation.

I have now seen the first episode of season 2… I am pleasantly surprised that I’m still engaged, despite not knowing anything about the story moving forward. I doubt I will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed season 1, and I think I read somewhere that it wasn’t picked up to finish the story, but that’s okay. I am enjoying it right now.
