I don't think so. I rented from RedBox . . . and I see it's available through Netflix DVD . . . and based on yoyo's post, it's likely available in other DVD rentals . . . like Blockbuster.

Inception for the 2nd time. I watched it this time from the perspective that he was always in the dream at some level. Like all the Nolan films of this type they are really interesting 2nd watches. Now I want to watch it again. What happens at some point when he wakes up n his real real world??? That might make a decent movie in an of itself.

Lucky for me I keep my Blockbuster card in my wallet.

Freaks Bruce Dern, Emile Hirsch and Grace Park in a Sci-fi mutant movie. Got great IMDB reviews. I liked it ok but felt it was pretty heavy handed character development. Recommend for quarantine viewing if looking for something to watch.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

Waiting 4 months and severely depressing my expectations really paid off as I thought this was actually a pretty good movie.

Gemini Man Passed on this in the theater based on reviews and watching the trailers. It was very good IMO. Guess Ang Lee still has it as does Will Smith. Would recommend for the home bound.

Uncut Gems

Really disliked this film. None of the characters were likable, which on its own is OK, but nothing else was redeeming either. The music was especially awful, and extremely distracting. I think g-lassie would have turned this off halfway through if i wasn't in the room, according to her "it was the worst movie I've ever seen"

FWIW, the acting was generally very good - it's not easy to get me to hate every character.

Better Off Dead

A classic that I quote often. We showed it to my stepson for the first time. He loved it. "I'm really sorry your mom blew up, Ricky."
