    The Booth Bijou Garage Theater is still on hiatus because it's just been too damn hot around here. It was 94 degrees in our garage this afternoon. We have A/C in the garage for movie nights and it can keep the temp around 78 even on really hot days. But 78 plus humidity is a bit on the uncomfortable side and, boy, have we had humidity. For like 4 weeks straight.

    It was even hot down at the coast tonight. Friends treated us to 'West Side Story' with the San Diego Symphony playing the soundtrack live. It was quite excellent but also a sweaty night. We did get a nice bonus in the form of an awesome sunset just as the performance was about to start.

    We are hoping to fire up the Booth Bijou again in early September, provided this damn heat wave abates.

    We are finally firing up the Booth Bijou Garage Theater again, after a 4-month hiatus. Next weekend we will be showing 'Game Night' and 'Black Panther'. Cathy and I haven't seen 'Black Panther' yet, so I'm really looking forward to next weekend.

    I always think it's great when classic old theaters re-open and get a new lease on life.

    :D

    Our guests REALLY liked 'Game Night'. We all enjoyed 'Black Panther' too but I think my expectations were too high. I'd rate it only 3.5 out of 5 stars after the first viewing.

    Our next movie night will be 'Tucker: The Man And His Dream' and 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom'.

    I wasn't that impressed with Black Panther either, Mark.

    But I find most of those Marvel superhero movies pretty forgettable.

    I still haven't seen Avengers Infinity War. But as I was watching Black Panther I realized I was growing quite tired of the whole Marvel Universe thing. I very much prefer a movie about a single superhero instead of these ensemble pieces. That's why I was looking forward to Black Panther.

    I watched Deadpool 2 yesterday (for the first time). It made me laugh out loud multiple times and, generally, I found it a far more entertaining film than Black Panther. Still, I again found myself feeling worn out on the whole comic book franchise thing.

    Yeah. I really enjoyed the Deadpool films too...mostly because they're so different.

    For the same reason, I rather enjoyed the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. But the rest just fade into nothingness for me.

    About the only other series that stands out for me is (DC's) Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.
