The soundtrack is awesome! Chris Pratt does not do much for me, but I did manage to catch a hot screen shot. The funny thing is I don’t remember; I thought I had taken a picture of Mark Ruffalo in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. I guess I was wrong. 😀

The story was kind of weak, once again, having the feeling like we just dropped in for an episode of Home and Gardens presents “Breakfast with The Ricardo’s.” The only difference, is that I don’t think I would be receptive to some space food. Anyway, I remember being bounced around the clouds, try to figure something out. When the root of the plot is revealed, I still had some questions.

Did I mention how awesome the soundtrack is for this movie?


So, it appears that my decision to create this blog was premature, as about a month later my DVD rental store closed.


How am I supposed to get movies to watch anymore? No, I will not go to the theater anymore because of the stupid-ass assigned seating. Fucking ridiculous. Twice I was sitting in my Front Row Center seat in an empty theater and someone came and sat down right next to me…talk about passive aggressive!

Anyway, people keep recommending Redbox, but I don’t have transportation, so I am hesitant about returning DVDs in a timely fashion.

My, apparently, rich nephew touts Apple TV. I don’t have that kind of money; they don’t even post the price on their website!

So without any access to movie entertainment, this blog seems premature and a waste of money. Yes, there is still television, but when I miss a show, I hate that I can’t watch it on a broadcast television station’s website the next day without having to sign in with a paid television subscription service: Marvel’s Inhumans on ABC! Bastards!

We're Here!

Hello world!

Welcome to Dark Room Entertainment, formerly Different From Other Boys, formerly Front Row Center.

I don’t “go” to the movies anymore due to pretentious reserved seating, because it is so damn expensive, and because I don’t do public transportation for anything or anybody. To complicate things, my DVD rental store has closed.

It may be some time before I can review any movies, until I can find a source for streaming, as there are no more rental stores anymore.

In the meantime, being a shut in, there is plenty on television and I have opened up this blog for posts that may do more with something I identify with with during my viewing.



Logan (2017)


In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart) in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

I have a bone to pick with my nephew and his “great” review. I thought it was okay at best when the fourth generation x-men (?) can barely exert their powers to defend, and at only one percent of Laura’s (Dafne Keen) strength? There was another sore point for me…

…was it the obviously defeatist way the x-men story has some to a close, only to learn that an adamantium bullet would’ve killed Logan (Hugh Jackman) despite his lack of will?

Oh, yes! If fifth generation x-man (?, the “bad guy”) was so impervious, why was there only one?
