Week In Review 11/14-11/18

Door Don’ts
Heather had an interesting interaction at a store this week. She was walking up to a glass door with her kids, about to enter the store. She saw a man walking up to the door to leave the store. She assumed he was going to open the door, but instead they made awkward eye contact until Heather finally opened the door to let him go out past her. She said it’s fine and she knows men don’t have to open doors for her, but it seemed weird that he made a point of not doing it. It was even weirder that to open it she had to push it in towards him, rather than him do the way easier and less awkward pull open for her. Poolboy said this shouldn’t fly and many people agreed. We heard a few other door-holding pet peeves. Lots of people said they’re teaching their kids to hold doors for people. A lot of them said they can’t stand when their children hold the door open for someone and that person doesn’t thank the child. One woman said she just loudly says to her son, “thank you for holding the door for that person, that’s very kind of you!” whenever someone ignores her son. Another lady said she and a friend had to do an experiment to see what it was like to be in a wheelchair. She was in a chair and her friend was pushing her when they tried to go into a restaurant. She said two men were walking in too, and completely ignored them to the point that the woman pushing the wheelchair had to move the chair and open the door for them. She said the guys didn’t even thank her. A few girls said if their dates don’t get the door for them there isn’t another date. Others chimed in and said man or woman, it’s just polite to hold the door open for people. Have any of these “horror door” stories happened to you? Should guys hold the door for girls no matter what?

Razorback Roundup
Ran. All. Over. They ran all over us. The #24 LSU Tigers gashed the Hogs for 390 yards on the ground on their way to a 38-10 beat down. Another big loss for the Razorbacks, and this one has knocked us out of the top 25. Hopefully some upcoming games against unranked opponents can get Arkansas back on track, with Mississippi State up next. The Hogs play the Bulldogs this Saturday at 6 on ESPN U.

Moose’s Movie Review
This week I saw Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them at Chenal 9 IMAX. And it was, get this… FANTASTIC. It was fun, interesting, well-made, emotional, intense and totally entertaining. I’m a huge Harry Potter fan (nerd?), but I think anyone could enjoy this movie, not just HP fans. There are some call backs to the original Potter series, but you don’t have to know those stories to keep up with this one. Fantastic Beasts was well-acted by all involved and the story was great overall, but there were a couple of slightly confusing moments and it was a little long. To me, this is one of the best movies I’ve seen this year and the people at Chenal 9 loved it, too. It’s being reviewed well but not quite as highly as I think it should be, with a 74% on rottentomatoes and an 8.2 on IMDB. I give it 4 out of 5 (almost more) moose antlers. Ya know, cuz moose have antlers…
There’s all sorts of great stuff at Chenal 9 IMAX right now, so check one out this chilly weekend. And enjoy the magic of the movies!

It’s the new official song of Thanksgiving. And it will be stuck in your head FOREVER…
