What I’ll be watching

I have started to load up my iPad with movies and teevee shows so that I’ll have things to watch during my two-day hospital stay. As you’ll see from the list below, I have a soft spot for Marvel movies and the Simpsons. I have packed more entertainment than I’ll actually need, but you never know in advance what you’ll want to see when you’re on painkillers.

What’s on my iPad? Read on …


  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  • The Dark Knight (Heath Ledger is the best Joker. Period.)
  • Deadpool
  • Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (I just got this today)
  • Hairspray (The original John Waters film, and not the musical)
  • Hellboy II
  • Idiocracy (I haven’t seen this is a while, but it seems to be more of a documentary these days)
  • Moonlight (Believe it or not, I still haven’t seen this)
  • Moulin Rouge (Gay catnip)
  • North by Northwest (My favorite Hitchcock film)
  • The Princess Bride
  • Raising Arizona (Selected quotes: “If a frog had wings, it wouldn’t bump its ass a-hoppin’,” “Would you shop at a store called Unpainted Huffhines?”)
  • Rogue One (The last two minutes are perhaps the most suspenseful scene in science fiction)
  • Shaun of the Dead
  • Star Trek Beyond
  • Star Trek VI (You haven’t experienced Shakespeare until you’ve heard it in the original Klingon)
  • All three original Star Wars films (The less said about the prequels, the better)

Teevee shows

  • The Simpsons (selected episodes from Season 4 through Season 9)
  • Tales of the City
