Sir, step away from the toolbox!
Just wrapped up all eight Fast & Furious movies... I can't wait til those pedos and rapists out in Hollyweird start making movies again.
Yes but I figure everything that comes out of Hollywood for the next 2 or 3 years will be woke "enlightened" horse hockey.
It will take a few years for the studios to realize that while that garbage wins Oscars (tm), it doesn't sell too well.

That aint no joke. If it's on an awards list, I already know I won't like it. I like simple tales of good vs bad and either lots of gun play or lots of fisticuffs. Honestly, the intricate stories and character development junk is lost on me. Don't care, hit something.

Not that I go to many movies, but I have noticed that the "critically acclaimed" movies suck at the box office, while a number of the "critically panned" movies rake in lots of money.

Obviously Hollywood, that makes it clear what their political standing is, has a clear and present agenda to shape the minds of its avid followers and zealots. Long before the universities were corrupted, Hollywood was shifted to guide the viewers into the new cultural future. At the front lines are the uneducated, script reading celebrities that are treated and listened to like they are superheroes. That's a scary thought isn't it

Semi-related technical question..

I have several dozen DVD and Blueray movies I'd like to load on a NAS so I can watch them on the network. How do people get their commercial movies copied over to hard drive? They are protected I'm sure, so is there software to do it that doesn't have to be downloaded on the dark web from the Ukraine? Seems like it should be legal if I own the movie and I'm only watching it in my house?

I had a “friend” years ago that use to decrypt all his DVD’s to NAS and stream over his network. “He” used an old software called DVD Decrypt. There was another software that was bundled with it that “he” cannot remember the name of. They were all free softwares. “He” googled looking for them but came up empty handed. However, “he” found this article this morning with links to similar software. https://www.howtogeek.com/102886/how-to-decrypt-dvds-with-hardbrake-so-you-can-rip-them/
“He” wishes you luck.

Perhaps I failed to mention I was asking for the benefit of a friend. So, please thank your friend for my friend.

LOL!!!! at the last two posts....

My theory is that professional movie critics watch so many movies that even good movies don't really catch their attention. Unless it has something different and unusual about it, it's just another movie. But normal movie go-ers don't necessarily like "different and unusual", so the movies the critics like very often seem to fail.

Ultimately, it's like critics and the public are totally different target audiences.
