JAFS

Yes, it’s another uninspired Sunday post. In other news, I did figure out why I was napping so much and was in a foul mood most of yesterday. I hadn’t had time to have my coffee. So that was a mystery solved.

Cats was, as mentioned, excellent and Wump maintained focus all the way through (almost). We headed home and watched The Wizard of Oz on Wump’s request. I napped.

Then Mrs. Hatboy went out to see Elven Scroll performing live in Kerava. This is my cousin-in-law’s band, apparently folk metal. They suffered from drunk-or-absent sound technician on the night but the gig apparently went well.

I stayed home, minded the kids, watched Zoolander 2 (awful but hypnotic, I laughed a couple of times) and the first 20 minutes of Watchmen (did they make a new version of this movie? It’s nothing like I remember it being and the one I’m seeing on Netflix is much better than the theatrical release, but it may just be because I’ve had to watch a lot of good Marvel and bad DC attempted grimdark since seeing the movie the first time).

Then bed, for snoozing.

    The one on Netflix seems to be the theatrical cut (2 h 42 min). The director’s cut (3 h 6 min) is superior, through. Yet to see the ultimate cut (3 h 35 min), which incorporates the Tales of the Black Freighter animated short.

      Wild, it’s just nothing like I remembered. I probably wasn’t paying attention when I saw it.

      And the Black Freighter was Mrs. Hatboy’s favourite part of the comic, she always said she’d have preferred to see that made into a movie. So maybe the animated short could be extracted out and she could watch that.

      Me, I want the giant alien tentacle blob hoax to be made into part of the movie.

        Yeah, I liked the tentactle monster hoax better, too, and all the conspiracy backstory stuff that went into it.

        The Tales of the Black Freighter is a DVD/BD bonus feature, if memory serves.

    I think my memory failed me. TOTBF was not a DVD/BD extra. It’s its own release (but it’s also part of the ultimate cut).
