My Dad .. North Africa (he landed after Kasserine), Sicily, D-Day, Bulge. Never talked about it to me, not a word. Not once.
My grandfather was at The Bulge too. Also helped capture the Remagen bridge. I wouldn’t say he NEVER talked about it, but it was rare. And he never brought it up first.

I recall ages ago ... my first wife asked him if he killed anyone during the war. He said that he manned a machine gun nest and one night they heard something and he let loose and the next morning they found some bodies. We had been tossing a few down and I guess that accounts for it. Forgot that till now.

Birdbox

Some brave young producer decided that technology has reached the point where they can make 54 year old Sandra Bullock look convincingly young enough to be pregnant and still fuckable in high definition.

The whole thing was terrifying, creepy, and disturbing, but even after all that makeup and CGI work, I still got a boner for one of the first women to give me a boner when she was in Speed and Demolition Man.
Such potential!

Brad Pitt is 55, Tom Cruise 56 and they're still considered hot, I think. Good for Sandra Bullock if she can still pull it off.

I saw Bodyguard. I give it a lukewarm endorsement.
Spoiler:
The way it ended was all the bad guys basically just confessed to all of their dastardly deeds. The dirty cop on the take, the terrorist who had been saying nothing to interrogaters for weeks. Suddenly they all start singing. Very convenient. Wraps everything up neatly and puts a nice bow on it, but it all just seems too easy. What if they hadn't all so helpfully confessed?
It's kind of a very high-stakes Law and Order episode, so you're spoiler criticism is spot on.

Discovered a show called Killing Eve, stars the Asian chick from Grey's Anatomy as an MI5 agent who is tracking down a beautiful, ruthless and clever assassin named Villanelle. Interersting stuff, and Villanelle is my kind of woman.

Never saw that one. Nor heard of it, actually. But Killing Eve is pretty good

It is not bad.

I have heard good things about Killing Eve from the same group that recommended the very interesting The Terror.

I do not know if Killing Eve is since it is a Limey Production.

The Terror should be since, while Limey--the entire cast engaged in a Rome X Game of Thrones orgy with some residua from Ripper Street and The Player--it is based on a Freedom Novel.

That is not in Japan since they cannot pronounce it.

They keep looking for "Furu."

Damn, well, I wish I could afford them all, but I don't think I can right now.

This year, adding Amazon Prime was sort of a Xmas present to myself. I figured my waifu would appreciate it too, since it comes with other benefits and she tends to shop online a lot. Wasn't hard to talk her into it. The rest of my money goes to the waifu and kids' expenses.

Oh my! I forgot he did that!

Now I need to go to Spatula City!

I have "fun" trying to explain "puns" in other languages. You really have to understand a language to "get" a pun. The series Anax mentioned a bit ago--Kill La Kill--is one massive pun very hard to translate into English.

Not sure I can explain "supplies" though.
