The Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News and Links for Tuesday, February 20

Another day inside my weird brain.

Hello, Hoddlers!

I did not make a mess when I was eating the chocolate truffles I made, so that’s good news! Anyway, I will talk about something less boring (but it might still be boring).

Ramble of the Day

Over the weekend, my MoviePass came. I was very excited about this, so excited that every time I saw or heard about a movie, I thought, “I can go see it, even if I will not enjoy it!”

The first movie I check out will likely be Black Panther, a movie I probably would have seen regardless. Now, though, I can see movies that I might not check out until they are released on DVD or digital platforms, or films that I am not quite certain about. That is the obvious perk of MoviePass, and it needs no further advertisement from me.

As I was watching commercials, movies like Tomb Raider and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, I realized, “I can also watch these movies without it being a waste of money!” In fact, it would be money well spent, in a sense, because the more I use the MoviePass, the cheaper, on average, each movie is! (Feel free to convince me this is bad logic.)

Now, why would I go watch a movie that is almost certainly going to be a critical and box office flop, let alone two? Besides the whole more movies makes the MoviePass worth it logic, I must share that I enjoy bad, but enjoyable things. You have probably already know this, but in case you did not, I will make it clear. I am on a noble pursuit to watch and dissect — and enjoy — bad things, much like Joel McHale. (Again, feel free to convince me this is bad.)

Do not get me wrong — I am just as excited to watch good movies, and many of them, with my new MoviePass. Now that I have the opportunity to poke fun at a few films that are worthy — after all, not all bad movies are worth watching — I will take it. Hopefully I do not laugh too hard at the wrong times while other people are enjoying the film.

tl;dr: I am a very strange person.
