#Encanto is absolutely magical. Here’s hoping they’re already working on the live stage version ’cause I’m ready to buy my ticket now. @Lin_Manuel could probably help make that happen, right? 🤞😉#SeeIt

Can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than by buying #Encanto tickets for tomorrow and pretending like the movie is a birthday present from @Lin_Manuel. We’re all allowed our birthday delusions. Also, calories don’t exist. pic.twitter.com/5ilzPARSIV

RE: Welcome to Raccoon City is getting mid “meh” reviews and this makes me so sad as a Resident Evil fan. Like I get RE is campy and over the top……but it’s not a comedy!? When will a filmmaker finally crack the code and give us a proper RE movie. pic.twitter.com/aui0Q4UFG8

I just saw Sandra Bullock on @jimmykimmel promoting her new Netflix movie “The Unforgivable”. I only saw the last part of the interview and best I can tell the movie is too much like “Unforgiven” with @SuranneJonesUK . Am I wrong?

THE UNFORGIVABLE COMES OUT TODAY IN SELECTED THEATERS I HOPE EVERYONE WHO WILL BE WATCHING A HAPPY EXPERIENCE AND PLEASE DO NOT SPOIL THE MOVIE ISTG
— faye | THE UNFORGIVABLE TODAY (@pipsipepsiiiii) November 23, 2021
The Unforgivable: Uneven, predictable, but elevated by a stellar performance from Sandra Bullock. Strong supporting turns from Viola Davis, Vincent D’Onofrio and Jon Bernthal, even though some of ’em just sort of disappear from the movie in the final act.

Seeing Sandra Bullock in The Unforgivable tonight just reminds me how much I’ve adored her since I was a little kid.
I remember seeing While You Were Sleeping when I was five and just LOVING that movie. I’ve watched it so many dang times. It’s an early favorite. pic.twitter.com/k3Dw7zezFE

8 bit Christmas is a movie I feel I can relate to because I remember a friend getting a Nintendo Christmas 87. I got the first four star trek movies. I think we saw each other once that Christmas break. LoL

8-bit Christmas is exactly what me and the kids need this holiday season! 🤍🎄

@ActuallyNPH Why isn’t 8 Bit Christmas about Atari? Just saying, that DID dominate the at least the beginning of the decade. It was HUGE!!!!! That’s why we still have PAC MAN, and know of PONG, Asteroids, Space Invaders, and Breakout.
