…hand over his tear-stain’d face, crying,”Horry-wud!” as the amusement park is being shot-up by the sub.
As someone who used to do two to three movies a month, I haven’t been inside a theater since December 2019. At first because they were closed, then because there were no new movies and the re-runs they were showing didn’t interest me, then came the sprinkle of new stuff, and it was a wokeist dystopia. The only one that interested me at all was Soul, and I still haven’t seen it, but will probably just stream it.
The saddest part is our local ‘plex is a small regional operation, and since we’re small market, we had $5 tickets, and $8 popcorn and drink (no longer Coke, heh). See a movie and keep fit- er, fat, for under $20. And those poltroons in Hollywood can’t get me into a seat.
Of course, like that Japanese* sailor, who was lamenting the destruction of not-Hollywood, I, too, lament the loss of something else, something that hasn’t existed for decades, anyway. I miss a chimera. But I have saved circa $800. Some of which got diverted to the scale modeling industry.
* The fact I invoke that image just certifies what a racist, bigoted, white-supremacist colonialist un-woke rat bastard I am, who will be first up against the wall when the revolution comes.
