A little bit of news if you are a UK Amazon Prime Video subscriber: The 2019 comedy-drama, Blinded by the Light has been added to Prime Video. The film is a coming-of-age story about a teenager and his love of Bruce Springsteen music.

This film was only released last year, so if you missed it at the cinema (like me) then now is the chance to catch up. If you have access to Prime Video, it could be one to watch this afternoon.

Sticking with the horror theme, at the end of February, The Invisible Man crept into cinemas. If you didn’t manage to catch the movie, then you can check out the review I published last month. Thoughts on The Invisible Man will tell you if this is a movie to watch when it gets a home video release.


The horror continues

If you’re finding yourself at a bit of a loose end at the moment, and you need something to watch then you might be considering trialling Shudder – the horror-based subscription channel. In February, I tried Shudder out for a week and published my thoughts.

Last week I sat down and re-watched Joker for a post on my Batman blog, I’ll Get Drive-Thru. The post, Viewing and discussing Joker: Re-watching a modern classic, offers up various thoughts and comments on the movie, which I noted in real-time. If you want to read what I had to say, click on the highlighted link.


What’s Up Doc?

Last year I re-watched all three seasons of classic Saturday morning kids’ show, What’s Up Doc? –more than 100 episodes! How did I get on? To find out, read my post: I revisited What’s Up Doc? after 27 years – it was a bumpy journey! The title of the post gives you a clue as to how I got on.


Mastering You-Tube

Over the past couple of days, as I have put these posts together, I have listened to music. Today, I have episodes of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe playing in the background.

If you want a hit of instant nostalgia, to remind you of the good times, you can find LOTS of episodes of Masters of the Universe on YouTube, via the official He-Man channel.

The channel also has episodes of She-Ra: Princess of Power and The New Adventures of He-Man, should you want to lose yourself to old school cartoons. Or you want to introduce them to the younger members of your family – they are all free to watch.  


The power of The Exorcist compels you

And finally, ever wondered what is the best order to watch The Exorcist movies? If you have, then I suggest you click on the highlighted link. This post – which I published late last summer – provides details about all of the movies, including two rather bizarre entries in the series.


OK, that’s your lot for today. Click the links, read some stuff, lose yourself in the fun and info. Oh, and Quiz answers are below.

Until next time, help each other and keep positive.
