I had the converse happen to me, a couple of weeks ago. A customer got angry to the point of screaming at my boss over a change in ticket prices. She got even angrier over the fact that she ,personally, did not get at least six months notice over the price change. My boss (who had no control over ticket prices) paid the $15 for her and her two children. The older of the two had gone away when she saw that mommy was about to throw a fit. Mommy dearest told my boss it was his fault her daughter got embarrassed by her tantrum. I took solace in the daughter not wearing her mothers glasses tinted so that every problem is a Lifetime Original leve crisis.
The Evolution of Physics: The Growth of Ideas from Early Concepts to Relativity and Quanta by Leopold Infeld and Albert Einstein. A look at Physics from the earliest of understanding to the cutting edge theories of the time of its publication in 1938. At first it appeared to be a book written for the every person but the authors dropped the work of scientists that the every day person may not remember like James Clerk Maxwell or Schrodinger and Heisenberg. I appreciate how they not only state a fact but explore how it was discovered. Certainly inspired thought.
The Disaster Artist: My life inside The Room, by Tom Bissell and Greg Sestero - This was much different than I was expecting, which is wonderful. Greg shares his thoughts, fears and frustrations working with a mysterious of a person as Tommy Wiseau. I love how Greg and Tom are able to show that Tommy had a love for classic cinema, specifically Marlon Brando and James Dean. In the end I felt that Greg admires Tommy and wants him to achieve his dreams. I am hesitant to watch it (the movie of the Disaster Artist) even though the man playing Wiseau is said to look a lot like James Dean.
When I first came to the United States, I never understood why all my peers were afraid of clowns. I have considered carrying a red nose in case I ever get mugged, I just pop it on and the mugger dies of fright.
Superman Doomsday: I loved the Kevin Smith cameo. I was a bit confused as to whether Lois knew that Superman was Clark, it seems to go back and forth. When Lex murdered Mercy I am now convinced that Warner Brothers has some weird contractual obligation where she has to die in every film. I can picture it now. Some guy with too much power: This Mercy woman must be killed by Lex. the board: Does she really need to be killed? SGWTMP: Yes, how else will the viewers know that Lex is merciless? (loud collective groan from everyone in the room, including the person refilling the coffee) SGWTMP: good! I am glad we all can agree.
I never watched past the third one so here is what I think it must be about. Saw in Space. Whoever the main villain of the last one ,was it Hoffman? is gets found in outer space in the year 2436 (just a random number) On the spaceship they get revived and then the crew finds themselves locked in a room where they have to do something horrible to get out. Little does he realize that one of the female crew members is a gynoid and she effortlessly escapes by detaching her hands and head. She balances her head on her hands and skitters down an air vent all the while "Hello Zepp" is playing. Hoffman doesn't notice her getting into the control room because he is distracted by Billy the puppet being knocked over. That leaves her ample time use her hands to throw herself and head butt him to death. The fight causes the ship to go out of control and crash in a picturesque pasture in Queensland where the ship is seemingly eaten by a 30 ton sheep. As the survivors contemplate their fate, a screen turns on to reveal that Jigsaw knew this was going to happen because when he was in the hospital he saw a mother wearing a wool scarf and her child playing with a godzilla toy, he knew that could only mean that centuries from now, someone will hate haggis. The survivors would have to overcome their hatred of haggis to live and it all seems to go according to plan until the sheep spits them out, and they jetpack into the sunset.
