You're in for a fun ride, GK. Is Studio Movie Grill 3D and/or Atmos?

Cocktails on Stark.

Can't remember where I saw a trailer for this but it looked good. Will have to add it to my list.

Just watched Jurassic City. It was ok. Took itself a bit too seriously. Could have been more fun in a campy way. Still it's always nice to see dino's running amok and chomping Californians.

Dear diary,

Went through Vudu last night and loaded up the Wishlist for October. I feel I've sufficiently mined Netflix Instant and seem to find the most gold in the VOD sector. I also think I'll stop watching any new ones and save them up October. I have a habit of burning out all the fun stuff as soon as it hits.

Now that you have scored the poster a proper frame is an order and then you must hang it in the hall of warriors(aka the hallway outside of your living room or home theater )

We've had Zombeavers and now I present to you "Beaster Day" which is available on Hulu+. This is crazy low budget film with some of the worst special effects (obviously intentional) is a hoot! A fitting follow-up to "Night of the Lepus" (the sets which I visited back in 1972). It's about a giant killer bunny that threatens a town. Three giant bunny eggs.

Good idea. I should frame it. I was caught up in the moment and bought a Thor hammer pewter keychain from the IMAX gift shop after the movie.

So I was watching Bubble Guppies and I see the prince of darkness himself, Ozzy Osbourne, is voicing Sid Fishy. Talk about a crazy train.

I tried "The Mirror" on Netflix. This is some Brit millennial filmmakers attempt at a low budget "found footage" movie. The idea is they get this supposedly "haunted mirror" on eBay and set up cameras to record if it really does anything. The purpose is to win James Randi's million dollar challenge. It's a dreadfully boring movie. You keep wondering if anything is really going to happen. One and a half bloodshot eyes just for the effort. You'll have more fun with "Beaster Day" instead.

Yep, I'm in the same boat. Running through too many potential flicks for October. Although, I do plan on watching a few for a second time that my wife missed...like Starry Eyes.


Speaking of, does anybody know if there is a way to determine the lifespan of Netflix streaming movies? From what I understand, some movies come and go and it would be nice to know which ones. There are horror flicks I would like to save for October but I want to be guaranteed that they will still be streaming at that time. Any insight?????
