I'm really apprehensive about watching the new film about George Foreman. While I'd like to know his story, I'd rather he wasn't an executive producer for a film about himself.

That and I don't want to come away wanted a new grill due to subliminal advertising.

His book was insane.

One of his wives left him and took the kids to Jamaica, so he hired a team to recover the children via speedboats (I'm not sure if that story is based in reality)

He named five of them George.

Honestly, the grill saved him, he was starting to do stupid bad boy promotions, and then he had to stop because of the grill contract.

Just read that and now I'm even more interested in his back-story, but by the same token, I still feel that what's presented might be tainted by his own involvement.

If I had a hand in a film about myself, all the fish I caught would have been "this big!".

His life was initially stamped by poverty and tragedy. I'm not sure I believe his mother cut hamburgers into eight pieces for eight kids, but the story about his real father is very sad. (He pretty much found out too late, and the father may have been a positive influence on his life)
Or at least that's the way he decided to tell it.

I believe I listened to the book on tape, and the title eludes me. (My grandma used to get a lot of books on tape at resale shops)

Just watched John Wick 4.  Glad its over, it felt like the later Matrix's where too much money and no story ruined it.
Very action packed though

They thought the coins were the important part of the first movie. They were wrong.

I honestly would have liked to know more about people who aren't part of assassin doordash. Like the cop, Jimmy.

Jimmy was smart, he knew not to go into John's house after the shootout.

I'm imagining Jimmy is in the grocery store during the second movie, and when the mandatory hit order on John Wick goes through, everyone in the grocery store gets the sms and just leaves.

So he's in an empty grocery store, with his cart of groceries.

That was a fun little story I did in my head.

Not new maybe, but new to me:
Oppenheimer.  Well acted and cast.  Compelling, although it sure glammed up the whole topic as everyone was good looking.  Robert Downey Jr. was well cast as Strauss -- a reasonable foil to Cillian Murphy, as Oppenheimer.  It was enjoyable and informative.  The jubilation at succeeding in achieving the explosion in Los Alamos was period appropriate, but it totally creeped me out, given the horrors that it unleashed.  Oppenheimer's subsequent misgivings did him no favors with the hawkish administrations from Truman forward.

On amazon prime:  Silver and the book of dreams.  IMDb: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt22037984/
The best part of this predictable teenage dreamscape movie is the CGI.  Some really imaginative and beautiful sets.  The music is ok.  I had to fast forward through it after 20 minutes.  Everyone is young and cute and uninteresting.
