Disney plus, quick thoughts…

So earlier today, I decided to take a quick look around “Disney Plus” streaming service since I’m now a subscriber. It’s pretty nice but as expected there’s a lot of kids stuff on there… well it’s Disney so you’ll have to expect it. I’m sure Disney are trying to make their streaming service to attract adult viewers which is why all of Star Wars are on there and why they’re starting to add Marvel movies on there too and it’s why they got “National Geographic” on there.

Anyhow, only reason I got Disney plus was for “The Mandolorian” show pretty much since I’ve been wanting to watch that show for a long while myself and I will start that show real soon. I also wanted to get it ’cause of the upcoming “Loki” show which I can’t wait for. “Loki” is a Marvel show that will be about that villain Loki played by Tom  Hiddleston. I’m a huge fan of that “Loki” character too and can’t wait to watch the first season whenever they put it out.

Since I’m a huge Toy Story fan, I’ll get to re-watch the first three movies and watch the 4th on there since I haven’t seen the 4th one yet. I’m also planning to watch the first “Frozen” movie on there too.

What’s really cool about this streaming service is that it even has Vintage Disney like the old Mickey Mouse Club show and classic Disney cartoons from years ago. I like the old black and white Mickey Mouse cartoons, remember that stuff? All that is on there too.

It has content on there for people of all ages.

The only downside about Disney Plus is that it doesn’t have Indiana Jones on there yet. If you want to watch the four Indiana Jones movies, you’ll have to go to Netflix for that one ’cause the Indy movies are over there. They’ll get Indy on Disney Plus soon, though,  I’m sure. When that happens that means the 4 Indy films on Netflix will get taken off. Remember, Disney owns Lucasfilm now.

Disney Plus is pretty cool, I guess but I’m sure Disney will try to improve it in the future. It’s a keeper.

Gonna sign up for more streaming services for my smart TV real soon…

I’m keeping Netflix and WWE Network but I’m gonna sign up for more streaming services for my Smart TV. I’m probably gonna end up going for that Three bundle deal… the Hulu, Disney+ and Espn+ bundle for $12.99. And I’m also thinking about signing up for CBS All Access which will be $5.99 which isn’t bad. If I’m going to go for these, I’m going to downgrade a Netflix plan so all of this would be more affordable, I think.

The reason I’m signing up for more streaming services is ’cause I might get rid of my cable box and plus, Smart TV is a TV for streaming so might as well have fun and use it, right?

I thought about getting HBO NOW streaming service but the only reason I would want that service for is for the Sopranos only ’cause I love that show. I don’t really need HBO NOW anymore ’cause I can watch the Sopranos by buying the series for Google Play which I will start doing soon. So I don’t need HBO NOW, fuck it.

So I’ve decided I’m gonna go for Hulu instead. Just something different…

As for Disney+, I want to get it so I can finally start watching “The Mandolorian” like everyone else ’cause I’m dying to see that show myself with me being a huge Star Wars nerd. Plus I want to get Disney+ to see all the Marvel films I haven’t seen before and to watch all the Disney classic animated films which I’m sure are all on there. I’ll be able to watch all the Toy Story movies too.

As for why I would like to get ESPN+ plus, well to get back into watching UFC ppvs on there. I love UFC but I stopped watching UFC ppvs ’cause they’re so expensive. I’d like to get back into UFC ’cause I’m a huge MMA fan myself. Love that sport. I only want ESPN for UFC and that’s it.

As for CBS All Access, I’m only getting that for the new Star Trek: Discovery show and for Star Trek: Picard since I’m a Star Trek nerd as well. Not sure if I’ll get CBS All Access, just thinking about it.

Now, I’m not much of a TV junkie like some would think. I don’t watch TV during the day. All my TV watching is mostly in the evenings and nights. I would rather spend most of my day playing my guitar and working out in the gym, that’s what I mostly spend my time doing. I watch TV at night as a way to relax from the day and nothing more.

I don’t watch much regular TV anyway ’cause I think cable TV is garbage… streaming services is the way to go, in my opinion.

The Oscars… didn’t watch it but I actually wanted to though but lost cable TV yesterday…

I was planning on watching the Oscars last night but yesterday there was a cable TV/internet outage from Spectrum all day yesterday so I couldn’t watch the Oscars at all. I wanted to watch the Oscars ’cause I was curious on who was going to win for Best Picture and win for Best Lead Actor/Supporting Actor categories.

While the Oscars will have some liberal politics throughout the shows, I was happy with the winner results last night, though. Yes, “Parasite” made history and won most awards and they were all worthy. Like I said in the previous blog post, I saw “Parasite” over the weekend myself and thought the movie was amazing.

I was also glad for Jaoquin Phoenix for winning for his “Joker” role. Now that you think about it, two Joker actors are now Academy Award winners…. Heath Ledger and Joaquin Phoenix which kind of cool if you think about it.

I’m disappointed that Tom Hanks didn’t get his third Oscar this year but Brad Pitt winning for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Cliff Booth in “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” was definitely worthy. Even though Pitt seemed to have slammed the Trump impeachment acquittal, I was glad for him anyways ’cause he was good in “Once Upon a Time…”. Pitt made the Cliff Booth role extremely entertaining and helped made that movie watchable. Yeah, Pitt is a die-hard liberal and a Trump hater but he’s still a talented actor, though.

I never saw “Toy Story 4” yet but I’m glad Toy Story got the Oscar spotlight once again and won Best Animated Feature. I love the Toy Story movies and gonna get around to seeing the 4th one sometime soon. I’m not really into children’s movies all that much but I’m a huge fan of Toy Story.

Even though I didn’t watch the Oscars last night when I wanted to, seems like an okay show for the most part. Seems like politics weren’t that bad this year.

I wish conservatives on twitter would stop attacking the Oscars and Hollywood all the time. Sure, I can understand why they would be turned off of Hollywood since Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and the Me Too movement going on lately but they need to get out of this bubble they’re living in of Hollywood being bad people and I’m about to have a rant about this soon. Trashing Hollywood isn’t good for America.

Planning to watch the Oscars this Sunday for the first time in 3 years… just to see if “Joker” will win Best Picture and see if Tom Hanks will win his 3rd Oscar…

Yeah, I’m planning to watch the Oscars this Sunday for a few reasons. 1) I want to see if “Joker” is gonna win for Best Picture 2) See if Tom Hanks is gonna win his third Oscar for his Mr. Rogers movie.

I’ve taken a long break from watching the Oscars. It may have seem like I haven’t watched it in many years but technically, I’ve noticed I haven’t watched it in 3 years. The last time I watched the Oscars was when “Spotlight” w/ Michael Keaton won Best Picture. I stopped watching after that due to all the politics going on and stuff, ya know?

I am gonna watch this year, though. There are some good nominations this year, that’s another reason it got me interested in the Oscars again.

Is this movie “Parasite” worthy of all these nominations? Is it Best Picture worthy? I’m not sure. I haven’t seen “Parasite” yet but I’m planning to watch it this weekend since I bought it on BluRay this week.

I saw “Joker” finally, though and fucking LOVED IT. I really hope “Joker” wins “Best Picture” and there’s a good chance it will.

I’ve watched the Oscars throughout most of my life… since my high school years pretty much. Took a few year break ’cause of their left-wing politics. I’m sure there are going to be some politics this year but I’m gonna do my best to ignore it all. I probably will end up watching the whole show.

Oscars gonna be interesting this year. I hope “Joker” wins it but it’ll probably end up going to “Parasite”. Never though, neither “Joker” or “Parasite” would get Best Picture and it can end up going to something else. “Little Women” might win it, though, I wouldn’t be surprised. If lucky enough “The Irishman” or “Marriage Story” could end up being the first Netflix Best Picture winner. We’ll see this weekend.

Bringing Adam Levine into this J-Lo and Shakira debate is silly and stupid, now here’s a rant about it…

This post might be kind of controversial and might upset a few but I don’t give a flyin’ two shits. It’s my blog so I post whatever I want.

Yes, I did watch the Superbowl Halftime performance with J-Lo and Shakira… was the performance inappropriate like everyone is saying? Yes, it absolutely was and here’s why… the NFL Superbowl games is something for the whole family to watch so that means people of all ages will be watching the game and that includes children. I find it a huge mistake of the NFL booking all these female pop-stars ’cause you can betcha there will be a plenty of booty shaking and twerking all over… stripper pole dancing, inappropriate dance moves with the other dancers such as “grinding” and all that stuff. Well, you get the deal… we’ve seen all that with female pop stars over the years… w/ Janet, Katy Perry, etc.

This isn’t something we should be watching on family TV at all. Sure, nothing wrong with women dressing sexy and doing all kinds of dirty dancing on stage but leave that for the strip clubs. We don’t need to see that on a family friendly sporting event. Not only that children will be watching, there will also be plenty of older people ages 50 or older who don’t need to be seeing all that.

Yeah, Shakira and J-Lo showed a bit too much skin and their asses were hanging out a bit but at least they had their breasts covered, I’ll give them that.

Since the day after the Superbowl, all I’m seeing now is leftist-women defending the Superbowl performance… saying all kinds of bullshit like Shakira and J-Lo are courageous for dressing sexy over 40 and calling them “courageous”. Leftist women in social media are trying all they can to defend that performance and I laughed when they brought Adam Levine into it. That’s the best defense they can come up with? Their complaint was that Adam Levine took off his shirt and performed shirtless yet there is no outrage.

Hmmmmm… why was there no outrage when Adam Levine performed shirtless when Maroon 5 played the Superbowl? Well, it’s completely normal and completely legal for men to go shirtless in public. A man’s chest is not a private part… a woman’s chest is. So there is nothing wrong with Adam performing with no shirt. It was pretty normal. I thought it was silly that Adam Levine was brought into this when it’s completely unfair and wrong… I look at it as feminist women just showing their hatred for men and nothing more.

These are the same women that tell men to stop objectifying women… yep, the same women that tell men to stop treating them like objects.. because of feminism we can’t say how hot a woman is anymore and we can no longer flirt with them or else we’ll get yelled at by them or worse get slapped with a sexual harassment charge… thanks to all this “me too” stuff going on… trying to destroy everything about the “man”.

Yet these leftist women are defending these pop stars looking like strippers.

Yup, these leftist woman are such “champions” for women and don’t want them to be treated like objects but the pop music industry objectifies women all the time. It’s all over the industry. It’s not just in music. Objectifying women is all over the movies, the porn industry and everywhere else you look at.

These are the same women that begs for equal pay and thinks abortion is health care.

I have no problem with leftist women enjoying that performance… that’s their prerogative but when they brought Adam Levine into this that’s what bothered me and now I feel like I have to rant about it.

Yeah they are such champions for women… yell at men to stop objectifying them, yet they have no problem with the NFL objectifying Shakira and J-Lo. Hmmmm… something wrong with that picture here.

Yes, I did watch the Superbowl last night and it was great… most exciting Superbowl game in a long long time…

I stopped watching the Superbowl for a few years since all that kneeling to the National Anthem was going on in the NFL. Now that the NFL seems to have put a stop to all that kneeling completely it looks like, I thought I would give them a chance.

I ended up watching the game last night. Watched the whole thing from start to finish… watched all the commercials too and yes watched the Superbowl Halftime show with Shakira & J-Lo.

As far as the game itself goes the 49’ers vs. The Chiefs, it really was a pretty thrilling game like everyone was saying. It definitely was one of the most exciting Superbowl games in a long long time. I never was much of a fan of the NFL in the past but watching that game last night made me respect the NFL again just a little more and I might watch more NFL next year. Both teams the 49’ers vs. The Chiefs, made sure the game wasn’t going to be boring at all. Both teams played really hard yesterday evening and both teams were on fire. Both teams really showed that they really were in it to “win it” and did whatever it took to win it.

Every Superbowl game is not always gonna be great, some are gonna be great, some are gonna be okay and some are gonna be bad. Well last night’s game is gonna go down in the history books for sure. I knew it was going to be a very close game and you never knew who was going to win that one. In the beginning, I thought for sure that the 49’ers were going to win but the Chiefs caught up toward the end and destroyed them bad. That was a shocker really. The game was really good and just made me appreciate football a little more. Glad I watched it ’cause if it turned out to be a boring as hell game, I probably would have walked away from the TV to do something else instead but since the game ended up turning out so exciting, I watched it from start to finish.

Who was I rooting for? I didn’t care really. I thought both teams did a great job. I was happy for both of them so I’m not on one side at all.

As far as the commercials go, there were some pretty cool movie trailers like Fast 9, Top Gun: Maverick and Black Widow… which I look forward to seeing all three of them.

As far as my thoughts on the Superbowl Halftime performance with J-Lo and Shakira, the only thing that I liked about it was that I liked that Shakira honored Led Zeppelin by having the violins play the Kashmir riff. I caught that and thought it was cool. Other than that, though, it was the worst Superbowl halftime performance I’ve ever seen. Guess I’m not into that type of music much.

I do agree with what everyone is saying about that performance being too inappropriate for the NFL… ya know, all the booty shaking, the pole dancing, the twerking and them looking like strippers. I’ll have another post about this soon. It’s gonna be rant and gotta get it out of me.

Other than that, it was a great Superbowl game for the most part.

Thoughts on the Oscar nominations for 2020… looks good this year… will I watch? Thinking about it…

Well the Oscar nominations came out for this year and they look surprisingly good. I haven’t watched the Oscars in like several years or more for a few reasons: 1) Hollywood won’t stop getting political 2) The nominations has been shit lately. This year the nominations are looking pretty decent, in my opinion.

The “Joker” movie scored the most nominations and it actually scored a “Best Picture” nomination which is really surprising. The Oscars has never been too friendly with comic book films and violent films so for the Oscars to be all over “Joker” is kind of weird. It’s cool, though. I haven’t seen “Joker” yet but I bought the BluRay for the “Joker” movie last week and I will get to that film sometime this week. I’ll watch it tomorrow night probably.

Anyhow, the other Best Picture nominations for this year looks good… only ones I’ve seen out of the Best Pictures are “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood”, “Marriage Story” and “The Irishman”.

I just watched “Marriage Story” on Netflix last night and it was alright. Not actually the best movie of 2019 like everyone was buzzing about but it was pretty good. Nothing I’ll watch over and over but I thought the best part about “Marriage Story” was Adam Driver’s performance which he actually got nominated for that role. I would like for Adam to win an Oscar for that role but Joaquin Phoenix is probably gonna get the Best Male Lead for “Joker”.

I’m happy that Tom Hanks got nominated for his Mr. Rogers, “It’s a Beautiful Day In the Neighborhood” movie. It does look like Tom Hanks maybe winning his 3rd Oscar ’cause that was a really good performance. I saw the Mr. Rogers movie in theater and LOVED IT.

I’m glad “The Irishman” got some nominations ’cause that was a fucking awesome movie. Loved that one and I’m happy for Quentin Tarantino that he’s in the Oscars spotlight again. “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood” was great too and I predict Quentin might win for Best Original Screenplay for that one.

Was there any snubs for this year’s Oscars that I was disappointed in? Well the only snub I can think of was that Adam Sandler was snubbed for his role in “Uncut Gems”. I saw “Uncut Gems” last week as well… it was a pretty good film but Adam Sandler’s role in that film was the best part about it. I think it’s a shame Sandler got ignored and that was one of his best performances.

I’ve noticed “The Lighthouse” movie with Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe didn’t get too much nominations hardly at all. I’m gonna get to “The Lighthouse” movie this week ’cause I rented it through Google Play so looking forward to that one. I heard “The Lighthouse” is real good and getting a lot of award buzz but it seems it has gotten ignored by the Academy pretty much. “The Lighthouse” movie only got nominated for Best Cinematography category which kind of sucks. I do want to see that film and been wanting to see it for a while. Looks good.

Other than that, the Oscars looks good this time and I might actually watch this one. Yeah, there’s probably gonna be a lot of politics and Trump bashing but I’ll do my best to ignore all that. I’m just curious to see what’s gonna win Best Picture, Best Leading Male actor and Best Supporting Male Actor. I want Tom Hanks to win for the Mr. Rogers role and I really think he’s gonna get it. Joaquin Phoenix is probably gonna win for “Joker” and I wanna see him win that one too.

I haven’t seen “Joker” yet but gonna get around to it tomorrow night. I know “Joker” is the most talked about movie of the year and I’ve never gotten around to seeing it in theater so I bought it on BluRay.

Will “Joker” end up being the first comic book movie to win a “Best Picture” award? I don’t know but it will be amazing so we’ll see. Cross our fingers for now.
