Downton Abbey: A New Era

When the film “Downton Abbey” was released in 2019, I went to see it with a few friends, and Brandi was actually one of them. Several of them had never watched the show, so I thought it was odd they even went, because they were completely lost. You really need to form that bond with all of the characters by watching the show; each one has so much important backstory.

Fast forward to the end of October 2021 and I convinced B to watch the series after she’d enjoyed some other British based things. It took us over three and a half months to get through the six seasons on Netflix plus the movie on Amazon Prime. I enjoyed it all even more than my first viewing and can’t wait for the story to continue in the new movie coming out in May.

Follow the White Rabbit

When I saw Flashback Cinemas at our theater was featuring “The Matrix” I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see one of my all-time favorite movies on the big screen.

“A” Watches

A few things have been watched to start 2019 and they all happened to begin with the letter A.

Anon

Although I’ve noticed this movie several times while browsing through Netflix, I always skipped over it. After finally watching the trailer, it caught my attention. Anon really gets you thinking about future upgrades to the human body and how security and privacy could change some day.

Aquaman

Another solid one from the DC universe. Almost on Wonder Woman‘s level for me, but not quite. A lot better than the rest of the films.

Altered Carbon

Anyone and everyone seemed to rave about this series when it was released but I held off. Actually I’ve been trying not to start any new series until I catch up on all of the others I want to start. Absolutely loved it and watched all 10 episodes over the weekend, which rarely happens. Action was a big part of the show, which probably is my favorite new show of the last few years. Advances in tech really gets you thinking about the future of the human race with this one as well.

After making it this far, did you notice the first letter of every sentence?

Ronnie Coleman: The King

Yeah buddy!

A lot of people think of Arnold Schwarzenegger when it comes to bodybuilding, but Ronnie Coleman won My Olympia eight years in-a-row and earned the nickname “The King” as the best bodybuilder in history. He has bigger than anyone before him and everyone who has come after.

All the years of hard training and heavy weights took a toll on his body. It was hard to watch him hobbling around in this film.

If you’ve never watched Pumping Iron, watch that first.
