House of Crime 58 - The Kitchen

This is a possibility. I will have to figure out my schedule and get back to you. The hours I work make it kind of hard to set up anything.

Also, is The Kitchen on HBOMax? I have it in my Vudu library, and to be honest, I hardly go to HBOMax for DC Content because I have so much I own that I am catching up on.

It doesn’t seem to be on HBO.

Looks like it is a rental on Amazon, Microsoft or Google Play, iTunes.

I am not sure if I would want to do a Watch Party for a movie that people would have to rent or purchase before hand. If it was on a subscription service I would be more open for that.

Why would I need to?

(I need to add my newest acquisitions - Super Friends!)

A few choice reasons:

  • Justice is Gray edition of the Snyder Cut
  • Lois & Clark in HD
  • Super Friends in HD
  • the original shows (Harley Quinn and Peacemaker, which is in 4K, alone make it worthwhile)

All of their combined DC content takes up 0 shelf space, which allows room for trades, toys and what have you (and this is coming from a guy who used to have a very large, multi-format, physical home video collection, DC and otherwise).

I do watch certain DC things on HBO. My collection is all digital on Vudu, you can click the link that I have provided above to see why I would say that. Minus Justice League and Peacemaker, at this point in time, there isn’t much reason for me to frequent it. I also don’t have to worry about movies rotating out with Vudu.

Vudu is schway.

At least they were, back when Walmart owned them.

I haven’t bought anything from them since the Fandango acquisition.

Nothing against Fandango. I’ve just chosen to buy and rent from elsewhere.

It’s the same just different owners. They are slowly changing to make a point if a movie is on sale at an “first time” low price which is also nice.

Say, can you use a Fandango gift card on Vudu?

Been wondering that, but I keep forgetting to look into it.

I think so? It is technically Fandango.

I would think they’d work.

Just asking for when my Santas ask about gift cards I’d like for this Christmas.

Here is an answer!

taps link with rampant enthusiasm, then reads The Stuff

I figured Fandango cards would work, but thanks for the confirmation, Ace. :superman_hv_4:

Just saw this & idk there was a movie? lol. The comic was great tho. I think I might reread & watch it. I remember it now that I’m looking at it. But, idk it was a comic, let alone DC/ Vertigo title at the time. The movie that is. The comic was great & it does double perfectly as a screenplay.

This was a fun read! I liked the colors, the art captured the 70s vibe pretty perfectly. I liked that it was a kind of fresh take on the mob genre. I wish the last issue didn’t feel so rushed, but outside of that I loved it.

For people who have watched the movie - is it a comedy? I was kind of shocked to see the cast because this comic didn’t really have much humor and those are some funny ladies. I can see how they could turn it into a comedy, but I am intrigued still…

I wouldn’t say so. There might be funny moments but there were also moments that I found funny in the book.

You might have something here. It felt like they could have expanded on the story for just a tad longer. Then again, I could see why they wouldn’t do that.

I watched a documentary on Hulu last night called “For Madmen Only”. About Del Close. He invented improv comedy. Mentored anyone u can think of. Belushi, Ackroyd, Murray, Farley, Fey. He directed 2nd city starting with the 1st cast of SNL. But, the majority of the story focused on Wasteland, & his relationship with Gold & Ostrander. All the storylines were either true, or based on truth. So the crazy extreme stuff is just them (Gold & Ostrander) putting a comic-spin on his stories. Or, they actually happened as told. They showed all kinds of pics of people in the comics that were real people (most famous) in his life/stories. Can’t wait to read it with a new perspective!!!

Now that is pretty cool. I have been so wrapped up in reading Strangers of Paradise, I haven’t really watched tv and literally the only comics I have read since last Thursday have been written by Terry Moore. I think I can finish everything by this weekend and then I can get back on my normally scheduled reading and tv watching.
