I should check out TCM On Demand. I haven't looked at it since my TV turned green, but I should be able to access it through my Kindle app.

^I watched Dracula's Daughter and Son of Dracula the other night. Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, The Mummy, and The Wolf Man were on a couple of nights later but I have most of them on DVD and had seen the rest fairly recently.

I've been thinking about what to watch for Halloween, and considering some of the lesser-watched Universals, like the Creature sequels. Son of Dracula would be a good one, because I haven't seen that in years.

I have completed rewatching the entire run of Deep Space Nine. :bday: A co-worker suggested Black Mirror. It's on my Netflix Instant list, so that's probably next.

^^ My Sister has recommended that highly and gave me her Netflix sign-on info to watch it (along with Stranger Things, but I haven't gotten to it yet.

Today Chris Mihm's latest movie, Demon With The Atomic Brain, arrived. I've been so distracted lately that I forgot it was even due this month. I can't wait to see it.

Stranger Things is awesome. Winona Ryder is fantastic as well. I am eagerly awaiting Season 2.

Oh, and we have to wait until 2018: Starz’s ‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead’ Sets Season 3 Premiere Date

Oh, and I watched Demon With The Atomic Brain. Good stuff, as usual, and with kind of an Outer Limits vibe to it, as the characters crossed multiple dimensions to stop the destruction of the universe.

Last night, I watched Tropic Thunder for a second time. It's a great, silly, fun movie with an awesome performance by Tom Cruise.

On TCM I caught House of Dracula, which I had seen before, and Billy the Kid vs Dracula.

I started the Netflix series Black Mirror last night. It seems to be a modern day, R-rated Twilight Zone. Person who recommended it suggested I stick it out. So far, I'm

I plan to check it out when I can since my Sister recommended it. And I see in the new season they have a Trek homage planned.

I returned to Episode 2 to finish it -- :eek: Episode 3 was very twisted, and I was a bit confused with Episode 4, thinking the two characters were time travelers. I'm really liking it now.

TCM had I Walked With a Zombie last night, which is probably the only zombie movie I like.

Cool. :thumbsup:

And it's not even a real Zombie. :lol:

I didn't find Billy The Kid on On Demand, but I watched House of Dracula, even though I have it on DVD. What a bizarrely plotted movie, though. It's like they threw it together the night before they filmed it. I love Nina, though, and it's nice to think that Larry Talbot was really cured.

Received the DVD Mr. Holland's Opus yesterday, and watched it after work. I thought it was a wonderful movie.

I watched Guardians of the Galaxy, Part II the other night. I've always liked Kurt Russell and thought he did a great job as Starlord's father. I thought the film went a bit too far with the crude humor but, overall, it demonstrated an abundance of CGI doesn't have to look like crap (I'm looking at you, DC).

Meanwhile, I've finished all of the series/episodes of Black Mirror on Netflix. Out of all the episodes, I think there were three or four I didn't like. The rest had fantastic twists.

Watched the '59 version of The Mummy. Good, but doesn't hold a candle to the 30s version- but then again what does?

I love those Hammer films, but nothing compares to the Universals.

Haha. :lol: That one was fun, but it was more Indiana Jones than Horror. I enjoyed it, though.

Today, in addition to Supernatural, I also watched Brides of Dracula and part of Horror of Dracula on TCM On Demand.
