I like Aristocats.



Pirates of Silicon Valley - 1999 - A glossing over of the early days and history of Apple and Microsoft. There is some narration by Steve Wozniak's character, and the story spends way more time on on Apple than on Microsoft. I wish that was not the case, especially with that other movie about Steve Jobs and that other other movie about Steve Jobs. But this came out over a decade before "Jobs" and "Steve Jobs" isn't even out yet, so it's not PoSV's fault. Anyway, taken on its own it's a decent movie, especially if you are interested in technology and corporate history. If you don't already know this story there are definitely some points that you would not understand or not get their significance. For that reason I feel like this is more fan service than informative. My 2nd time watching. DVD. 3/5

I had seen bits and pieces of this in the past. From what I could gather, Bill Gates was coming off like a true douchebag... kind of like Zuckerberg in Social Network.

Watched "The Golden Child" today for the first time in about two decades. I remembered so little of it. In particular, an amazing stop motion Pepsi dance. How could I forget something like that? Also, the stop motion beastie at the end is pretty awesome to behold.

Man, I just went through the exact situation like 2 weeks ago. I hadn't seen Golden Child since I was about 7 and only remembered the poles coming out of the darkness in the temple.  The movie got weird with his dream sequence and the bloody oatmeal was gross, but I enjoyed it.

Definitely a fun revisit. It had been so long that I forgot pretty much everything. The scene where he stirs the oatmeal was one of the only things I could link to it before watching it again. I love when netflix puts up stuff that I used to dig, yet hadn't seen in ages.
