Svengoolie

I did not grow up with horror hosts as a kid.  We had some kind of "control voice" that introduced both "The Outer Limits" and "Sci-Fi Flicks" on Channel 2, but there was no actual host to watch.  Hence, I have no emotional attachment to these types of shows like many of my friends do.  I've never really cared about seeing them, though I have enjoyed several documentaries about the phenomenon, both reading and watching them.

Comet TV

I remember when the Sci-Fi Network started, and how fun it was for a couple years.  They showed old movies all the time, with great prints, had a cartoon block early Sunday mornings and we all though there would be more and better things coming our way.  Since I don't have cable (cut the cord years ago) I've only ever seen it a few times here and there, but mostly it seems to be second run made for tv/dvd movies from cheap companies.  Some of them are decent entertainment, but most are just not very good.

Despciable Me 3 (2017)

This was the first Despicable Me movie I have seen in the theater.  I saw the other two via DVD and then Minions when it was out in 2015.  But this time, I was ready for it.  I had a nice meal and some tasty beverages beforehand, and half a pack of gummi bears for the movie.  Hit it.

Guardians volume 2

It's a lot of fun.  I liked it as much as the first one, maybe a little more.

Kong: Skull Island (2017)

I had low expectations of this,  so I'm happy to say they were easily met.
