Good movies, please!

And the best new movies this week on streaming

The streamfunc app is coming soon! I've been hard at work building and I'm just about at the point where I'll need some folks to give it a whirl! If you have an Iphone and are interested in testing out the app, shoot me a reply and I'll follow-up with additional details.

Am I the only one who is having a hard time making it to the movie theater these days? When the number of cases started to drop and I got myself fully vaccinated, I was certain going to the movies would be at the top of my list of favorite activities again. But I've only been to a movie theater just one time in the past 3 months. I just have not had the motivation for some odd reason. At the start it was because of how stupidly hard it was to find a showing for a movie with decent seats because of the capacity restrictions. Why would I go out of my way drive to a theater and struggle to find parking only to end up in a crappy seat that would give me a stuff neck for the next week?

These days, none of the newest released movies have motivated me enough to make the trek...Cruella came close but I ended up watching that at home. For the most part I'm not a fan of musicals (sorry In the Heights) and in general, the movies released so far this year have been slightly above average at best. I'm really holding out hope for the rest of the summer that "must see in theaters" doesn't become "has lots of loud sound effects" because the cinema experience is so much more than that and it starts with great movies!
