    Slash: Raised on the Sunset Strip -- dig it. The bonus is Slash is a cool dude.

    Hired Gun -- I mean, it feels a lot like a promo. But its got some insight about being a session player. That Jason Hook can fuckin' play.

    The Rainbow -- Interesting. That old Mangini guy worked with a lot of acts.

    Eh... Slash comes off as kinda smug and "too cool for school" for me, even though he and his one album wonder band fell prey to all of the same bullshit as the LA glam scene they "despised." Just an Aerosmith cover band LARPing as Hanoi Rocks.

    Interesting, I don't get that from him these days. Maybe no booze and dope and 55 years helped him.

    Its So Easy and Other Lies-- Spoken Word/Musical Performance Duff on Duff. I dug it.

    Inside Metal: The LA Music Scene Explodes- about 30 min in and its also pretty interesting. A LOT of dudes and some chicks from bands I haven't heard from since perusing borrowed Hit Parader and Circus mags in 1982/83 in study hall but also a lot of dudes in bands that got big and lasted. There's a Part 2 as well.

    Disclaimer: If these guys have something of interest to me and the doc keeps me watching, I invest the time and call it a net gain. . :nlb:
    Also, Amazon keeps me rolling through these with their "customers also watched" tiles. :lol:

    Finally got around to watching the new? Star Wars Skywalker film.
    - It was entertaining but really left me with an over all underwhelmed feeling.
    - It seemed the movie was more of the same stuff. Same shit different day type feeling.
    - I get why it ended that way and it makes sense, I was just hoping for something more.
    - All-in-all looking at the entire 9 movies, the Solo movie, and the Rogue 1 movie, I think they're a great collection. I thought Solo and Rogue 1 were much better films, but these all fit together in a nice package.

    - I may just be to old to give a care any more, but I'm really not very critical at this point. I'm entertained and not a nerd about it. It's kind of like expecting Metallica is gonna top its older best albums. You check it out and are happy if you hear something like what made you love them. For these people trying to carry on a legacy I think they did a really good job not being Lucas and crew doing it from the 70's.
    - Maybe someday in 10 years when I get time to watch some more tv I'll check out the Mandalorian and other stuff. I hear it's good too.

    The Hunt: I actually really enjoyed it. It's a dumb action movie with pretty good practical effects and gore masquerading as a smarter film that wants to poke fun at the bipartisan divide in the USA. It fails miserably at being a political satire. At best it could be considered a meta take on cancel culture backfiring on liberals, or a very meta way of poking fun at MAGA rednecks and how they think they're the heroes of the story. That's probably giving it wayyyy too much credit though.

    Pretty entertaining but holy fuck was it cringy watching guys firing a M16 or even an AK on full auto for 10 seconds straight. It takes less than 10 seconds to empty a clip even on single fire.

    The Mission (1986)- It holds up, haven't seen it in forever and there were whole chunks I had not remembered. Note to self: 1750's fashion was brutally hot. Got the fam to watch it.

    Trivia noticed, Maurie and Jimmy Conway would again be rivals 4 years later in another movie. lol.

    I see what @Kaura meant about Da 5 Bloods. Jesus the CGI gunshots and blood spatters look atrocious. I've seen better shit in youtube videos from like 6 years ago ffs.
    It's so bad

    6 Dynamic Laws for Success
    Rando selection from the Prime- surprisingly original and funny. Recommended if you are in a quality indie mood.
