Everyone knows how the coronavirus disease labeled COVID-19 is affecting all of our lives. It initially may have been downplayed as looking like it wouldn't be a big deal or would stay over in China. Neither turned out to be the case, so now the focus is on slowing the spread, and that means businesses, schools and events are being closed to keep people from gathering there.
Putting a limit on meetings where people can gather started at 250, with under that allowed if precautions were taken. Limits enacted by individual states in the USA became national limits and they dropped rapidly to where it's now at a limit of 10.
In between then, TV shows and movies began announcing they were halting production and the release of some movies were dela…Read more >
Not long after Robin Williams passed away on August 11, 2014, I was contacted by Fandom staff to see if I wanted to commemorate Robin's life here on Moviepedia. At the time, I wasn't ready to do it but I kept the idea in the back of my mind to do it some point in the future and began buying his movies as I shopped at places like Half Price Books. This August 11th will mark five years since his death and more information has been published about his life and career, so now is the time to start the retrospective.

DP2 picks up two years later. Wade Wilson has been taking on organized crime, using at least one Dolly Parton song as accompaniment while taking them out. He’s successful enough at it that I’m guessing it’…

Every so often, a "killer app" comes along that makes people want to buy a certain technology. In the early days of home computers, one of the first ones was VisiCalc. With it, you could make an adjustment and see immediately how that would affect other calculations. VisiCalc was overtaken by Lotus 1-2-3, but both gave people reasons to view home computers as a serious tool. Later on, the Infocom text adventures gave people reasons to buy computers just to play games, and Myst and The Seventh Guest gave people reasons to add CD-ROM drives onto them.
The movie "Ready Player One" may be my killer app when it comes to an 4K UHD TV. I haven't fallen into the trap of "new format, gotta get it now" like others do, but for this movie, I might.
