Newsletter and jokes 30 August 2019

Hi all 
As per last week, it's pretty much adults-only as far as new releases go, 
with the exception of one film which is more family than kiddies. That is 
the faith-based sports film, Overcomer. 
For the rest, let's start with Tarantino's Once Upon a Time ... in  
Hollywood, which takes a look at the whole Charles Manson/Sharon Tate 
murder story. It's the widest release this week, and the best received 
of the new releases. 
That's joined by the R-rated comedy Good Boys, which is somewhat  
controversial, in that it is about 12-year-olds carrying on like they are 
in their early 20s. I have seen some opinions that the making of the film  
should have been considered as "child abuse". On the other hand the crowds 
in the USA did seem to like it so we'll have to see how it goes down here. 
Then we have a hard-hitting local corruption thriller, Uncovered, set  
around real events at Richards Bay, also adults only, although with strong  
female leads. 
Lastly we have a lesbian-themed film from Kenya, Rafiki,  which has won  
numerous awards around the world. 
From the Indian subcontinent we have action thriller Saaho, releasing in 
both Hindi and Tamil versions. 
For what its worth, this week's releases are showing at rather fewer venues 
than some of the big-hitters already on circuit, like Angel Has Fallen, 
The Lion King, Hobbes and Shaw, and even Spider-Man (after 8 weeks). 
Speaking of movies with legs, if you want to catch The Hustle on the big 
screen you should do so soon, it's likely to be off circuit shortly, after 
16 weeks and still going strong. 
On the previews side, there are a handful of previews for It: Chapter Two, 
next Thursday evening. See the previews page and remember to book. 
Enjoy :-)

Our twenty-five-year-old son moved back home with an eye toward socking  
away money to buy a condo. We never bothered asking how long he’d planned  
to stay, but I got a pretty good idea when I walked into his room recently. 
In the corner was a milk jug with a few coins in it and a label that read  
“Condo down payment.” 
It seemed that all our appliances had broken in the same week, and repairs  
were straining our budget. So when I picked up the kids from school and our  
Jeep started making rattling sounds, I decided that rather than burden my  
husband, I’d deal with it.  
I hadn’t reckoned on my little tattletales, however.  
They rushed into the house with the news: “Daddy, the Jeep was breaking  
down, but Mom made the noise stop!” 
Impressed, my husband asked, “How did you fix it?” 
“I turned up the volume on the radio,” I confessed. 
My kids always perceived the bathroom as a place where you wait it out  
until all the groceries are unloaded from the car. 
When a family friend passed away, my granddaughter took her three-year-old  
son to visit the widow. As they approached the front door, she whispered to 
the boy, “Make sure to tell her how sorry you are.” 
He whispered back, “Why, I didn’t kill him.” 
Over dinner, I explained the health benefits of a colourful meal to my  
family. “The more colours, the more variety of nutrients,” I told them.  
Pointing to our food, I asked, “How many different colours do you see?” 
“Six,” volunteered my daughter. “Seven if you count the burned parts.”
