“All right boys, it’s Howdy Doody Time.”

During last week’s great plague I stayed stationary long enough to watch a couple of movies. Both just okay. And both set in the 80s, oddly enough.

I’ll admit, Cold In July (imdb | rotten tomatoes) just kept zagging. A few times I thought I had it sorted out and then it would pivot again into a slightly different movie. Pretty good, although Michael C. Hall just can’t pull off gritty southern the way Sam Shepard or Don Johnson (!) can.

The only thing that really interested me in The Infiltrator (imdb | rotten tomatoes) was Bryan Cranston. Turned out to be an entertaining little silly procedural.

Yesterday, while waiting for Lindsay to appear, I snuck off to see Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 (imdb | rotten tomatoes). It wasn’t quite as good as the first one, but still entertaining in many of the same ways. And Baby Groot: adorable.

UPDATE: I forgot that I also watched Logan (imdb | rotten tomatoes) last week. It was so fun and refreshing to watch those characters unconstrained by the X-Men franchise rules (not much cursing, little actual violence, etc.) especially Professor X. More swearing please, Sir Patrick.
