    Loved it. I had no idea about his death, either.

    Blumhouse has a series of movies released on Prime; I watched "Black Box" with the former Ms. Rashard/Ms. Cosby and it was quite good IMHO.

    Sitting here writing out messages on campaign lit to distribute to neighbors and watching Long Shot. I don't think I've seen Charlize Theron look more incredible in a movie before, "stunning" doesn't do her justice. Good movie - the rare R-rated comedy that doesn't overuse the "freedom" of the rating but uses it naturally.

    One of four movies I saw on flights to and from Hilo a year ago. It was the best of the group, which included Rocketman and two others I can't even remember now.

    And Theron isn't just great to look at for two hours. She's incredibly funny, which I really haven't seen on screen before. I also couldn't believe that was Andy Serkis playing the Murdoch-type. Great cast throughout.

    Aaron Sorkin's The Trial of the Chicago 7 on Netflix. Very good. Funny and raw. Great cast with Mark Rylance the standout.

    That's an excellent critique of The Long Shot. It reminds me of when Family Guy first got released "uncensored" on DVD. I remember watching and thinking it was less funny than when they had a well-timed bleep instead of just the f-bomb. Howard Stern is similar in that once he stopped fighting the FCC after his move to satellite, I found him infinitely less funny. Sometimes having those limits (and pushing them) forces comedy writers to be better.

    I love R-rated humor, but it really does have to be earned.

    He was.

    Keaton steals every scene he’s in.

    Just watched tonight; great history lesson for me. Damn he laid bare all of the awful hurdles the anti-establishment faced then.....yet they overcame. We need to remember that now.

    My gripe is he hollywoodized some of it. There was not an established police presence on the hill, for example.

    The gagging did happen, though.

    Anyone see American Utopia? I never saw Talking Heads live, but this show was the fucking amazing BOMB!

    That seems like nitpicking. It's not a documentary. I thought it was terrific. Great cast. Keaton is awesome in everything he's in, even small roles like the FBI agent in Out of Sight.
