The video arcade made me what I am today!



I have a dispensary in my tiny town but... the last time I ordered some edibles and went to pick them up it started raining its rear end off. Just opened up and started raining while I was at work and I expected them to be handling covid sensibly by having people come in one at a time and wait in their cars. loving lol, no, they make you wait outside in a line. And people's masks were wet and useless, and they were packed rear end-to-elbow. gently caress that dispensary and gently caress all the out-of-state yahoos smuggling kush back home. Stay the gently caress out of our town and quit giving us the 'roni.

Any pretense that they were anything but a capitalist business putting profit before human lives was crushed right then. It really needs to be decriminalized at the federal level because this is ridiculous.

Wow, that was a long rant. But back on topic I have some hosed-up movies on blu ray and I just want some more edibles to enjoy them with, man :(

If you guys think Walmart is dangerous you should see some of the thrift stores I've been in over the last couple weeks, not only shoulder-to-shoulder with the unwashed masses but you're also surrounded by dead peoples stuff.

I did go to a Walmart once in the past few months but it was in and out just to pick up my Columbia Classics set. So I took the risk for Lawrence 4k, can't really say I have any regrets.

There are still dozens of copies of Escape From New York on ebay at retail price. Many of them ship free. Don't go to Walmart.

edit: It's also in stock on the Walmart website. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Escape-From-New-York-Blu-ray/44457176

I welcome anyone from one of those countries to come here and see what choice they have here, with our government. Have fun starving to death because your job fires you for not coming in and they ended the extra unemployment benefits so you can't even afford to go to the store to catch the Rona.

EDIT:
I'm sure you've seen videos of these poor store workers (who are likely paid between $8 and $10 per hour) that get assaulted for telling people to wear a loving mask, yeah it's a political thing here, not doing something as simple as wearing a mask (or just loving staying at home)

I thought the Watchmen steelbook from Best Buy would sell out quick so I pre-ordered but they have an abundance of them, so they're on sale for $24.99

Good price. $10 than I got it. I enjoyed the show and while it's a lot like other HBO series where the last episode or two doesn't have as much kick as the earlier episodes, but it's a fun ride. Only wish they had done a 4K release.

Mann's output is loving stellar. I've been meaning to check out Miami Vice and Blackhat (or was it Whitehat?), because I've heard they were a bit maligned but on the level for Mann even if it's not as good as Manhunter or Thief.

The DC of Blackhat is supposed to be significantly better, but I've never been able to find it :(

I think Iím half way through Carpenter. Itís just getting all the later and obscure stuff now.

It's almost as if these are deeply rooted systemic issues going back decades because big business has put a very large investment into keeping these people in the seat of power and generally ensure that anyone who actually represents the interests of the little people never stands a chance of being elected to office.

Straight Story has a Japanese blu ray release that is (supposedly) pretty decent. Too bad Disney owns it in the US.

edit:
Also yeah Memoirs isnít as bad as itís reputation suggests IMO. The only truly bad movie in Carpenterís filmography is The Ward.

I can vouch for the Straight Story blu ray, I got to see it in a semi-theatrical setting as part of a year of David Lynch films.

Why does everyone bring up Straight Story being a Disney movie as a kiss of death for it's release? Like yeah it sucks it's currently in the vault and won't get a release until who knows when (or more likely it'll just pop up on Disney plus some day) but it also not like it's a movie I see them never releasing. Like it's Lynch, but it is a PG rated family film.
