So I rented "The New Mutants" on Amazon prime this morning

Was not very impressed. The first hour was complete tedium. The last half hour was ok but not worth the wait of the first hour. Not recommended.

Of course, it takes an extremely good movie to impress me these days. I have a hard time enjoying movies.

I’ve never even heard of that movie. How were the ratings on it? Are you going to post your own rating and comments on Prime?

I didn’t check the ratings. No, I don’t think I’ll rate it and comment on prime. Too lazy :slight_smile: . Just thought I’d leave a quick review here.

Lol. That’s ok. I was just curious

I read the Marvel Comic (s) a while ago.

At least if it’s the same thing.

I rent movies from my library all the time. For movies I want to collect I buy the DVD. :upside_down_face:

Rent as in pay? Or do you mean loan under the auspices of your library fee? I never go out of pocket for media that isn’t available on my general streaming service now.

Two moves in two years have cured most of my collecting compulsion. The movies I want to keep available are sitting on a redundant 16 TB DNAS file server running in the basement. It also holds the epubs that replaced my paperback collection and the mp4s that replaced my CDs.

Yes, you can still “rent” movies from Amazon Prime. They give you like 30 days or some thing like that to start the movie. Then 48 hours to watch the movie once you’ve started watching it. I rent newer movies every once in awhile. Movies that aren’t available anywhere else for free/included with streaming service.

Oh I meant the movies are loaned to me from the library. I know I’m not technically renting them since they’re free but I just like the old school terminology. :wink:

Does it have Cable in it? I might watch it sometime just for the heck of it.

Cable in Deadpool 2 was about Hugh Jackman height when in the comic he was nearly 7 feet tall.

Fun fact: Hugh Jackman is roughly normal height while Wolverine is supposed to be about 5’3’’ to reflect that wolverines in nature are not that huge but are ferocious.

No, it doesn’t have Cable in it. The Deadpool movies were much better than this movie.

I liked both Deadpool’s movies.

In the comic Cable became the leader of the New Mutants and they later morphed into X-Force.
