TV Shows on Roku Tubi:

Haven (2010 - 2015) Finished watching the series. I liked the characters, so I didn't like how the plot progressed, and I didn't like the ending.

(Roku - RayGun - no commercials) movies:

Night Tide (1961) Horror, Romance, Thriller - very good, different

The Blancheville Monster (Horror - original title) (1963) Horror - good

Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things (1972) Horror - good

Funeral Home (1980) (Cries in the Night - original title) Horror, Thriller - so so

(Roku - Tubi TV - a few commercials) movies:

Reptilicus (1961) Action, Sci-Fi - B Movie, unintentionally funny

Witchcraft (1964) Horror - very good

Dead of Night: A Darkness at Blaisedon (1969) Horror - good for that TV movie era

Dead of Night (1977) Horror, Mystery, Thriller - good

Devil Dog: The Hound of Hell (1978) Horror, Thriller - pretty good

A Murder of Crows (1998) Action, Crime, Thriller - very good

The Case of the Whitechapel Vampire (2002) Mystery, Thriller - pretty good

Hollow Creek (2016) Crime, Horror, Mystery - good, but I wouldn't have watched it had I realized what the main plot would be.

Misconduct (2016) Crime, Drama, Mystery - Good but ending confusing / made no sense

(Roku - Crackle - a lot of commercials) movies:

The War of the Worlds (1953) Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller - very good

Absence of Malice (1981) Drama, Romance, Thriller - very good

I thought this one looked like a cat face. Upon closer inspection, I realized it's actually a face with a crown and wings.

I took these photographs through my house window yesterday, so they're not the best quality.

This was the aftermath of a strong thunderstorm line that went through yesterday afternoon. It began with a barrage of pea sized hail. Then it changed over to pouring rain. Once the rain stopped, I took these photographs.

By the way, it looks like the Canada Goose Pair has decided to move into my yard. I have no idea where they think they're going to make a nest. I have news for them: there's a cute Red Fox that runs around here, too, in addition to Coyotes, so this is not the safest place to make a nest.

"Theatre" - Postcard

This week's Sunday Postcard Art challenge was "Theatre."

The only difference between these two is the added word "Broadway" in the second one. I like how the first one looks better, but I decided to post both.

I created this using GIMP 2.10.18.

The vintage images are from an Internet search. (See the side of my blog for links.)

I took these photographs through my house window this past week, so they're not the best quality.

This Canada Goose pair showed up in my yard unexpectedly. They even walked around like they were lost, trying to figure out where the rest of their fellow geese were. The last photo could be captioned, "We're out of here!" They flew away shortly afterwards.

There are many Canadian Geese in this part of Connecticut, but my yard isn't the type of area where they like to congregate, so I'm not sure what these two were thinking. The yellow bushes in the background are forsythia. I should've taken photos of their flowers when they were at their peak.

I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for this week's T Stands For challenge found here.

This is my summation of the past week:

Teddy volunteered to pose with his cup of cocoa and an Easter paper plate. (Sorry for the dim lighting.)

TV Shows on Roku Tubi:

Haven (2010 - 2015) (up to season 3 now)
 
(Roku - Tubi TV - a few commercials) movies:

And Then There Were None (1945) Crime, Drama, Mystery - excellent, a classic

Another Man's Poison (1951) Crime, Drama, Film-Noir - excellent, a classic

Charade (1963) Mystery, Romance - excellent, a classic

The Murders in the Rue Morgue (1986) Crime, Mystery, Horror - pretty good

Bob the Butler (2005) Comedy, Family - Funny

Alone in the Dark (2005) Action, Horror, Sci-Fi - okay. Hollywood glorifying gun violence, yet they want gun control.

Heatstroke (2008) Action, Horror, Sci-Fi - "B" movie / okay

The Last Days on Mars (2013) Adventure, Horror, Sci-Fi - Typical of all the things not to do, including not following protocol that you know they're trained to do. Don't waste your time on this one.

(Roku - Roku Channel - a few commercials) movies:

Wicker Park (2004) Drama, Mystery, Romance - Very good, but timeline was a little confusing due to flashbacks

Time Trap (2017) Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi - Very good

I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky.
