    Watched Seth Mcfarlane's Ted. Opening with the Bear smoking a bong. That sets the tone for really enjoyble comedy.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    I thought Ted was pretty good. It didn't blow me away, but agree it was enjoyable.

    Anyone seen Irresistible yet? We'd really like to, but are unwilling to plump for $19.99 to watch a movie at home.

    Is that a pay-per-view fee, or the cost of the dvd? Until now, I hadn't heard of Irresistible.

    The way I understand it, the movie is seeing only limited release in theatres, most likely because of the coronavirus, and is at the same time being offered as a VOD, at the $19.99 price point. I think it's for a single viewing, but I'm not sure.

    Thanks. I know very few films are being released while the virus has the movie theaters closed (they're closed here). When something does come out, I just have to guess the format and venue. $20 does seem steep to see a movie one time, anywhere.

    Typically they are $20 when they first appear on my streaming services but drop to atound $5 a few weeks after that. I usually wait for the $5.

    I still need to see that. I hear they spend a lot of time riffing on Flash Gordon.

    One of the theater chains is set to reopen in July. Sounds crazy to me.

    Mother (2009 Korea), written and directed by Bong Joon Ho (Parasite). A boy considered a "retard" in his town is accused of a girl's murder. His doting mother must try to prove him innocent.
