Over the course of the long holiday weekend, I re-watched the Lord of the Rings trilogy. We have all probably seen it by now and there isn't much to say at this point. However, I was very amused that Amazon felt the need to post warnings at the start of each movie regarding SMOKING.

Growing up, smoking was so normal in society. Now it’s so unusual to see anyone smoke in movies or real life. That’s a genuinely good thing.

I wish I could say the same. Here I feel society has given up on the issue and no longer cares. Every day, people smoke in the train station, even if it's banned and the guards won't say anything. Hell, most of the time I have to move because they will sit down on your bench and light up a cigarette.

It's awful. It's one thing that is done much better in the US than here.

Regular this time. Last time I watched the trilogy, I went Extended, and I wish I had that time back.

It seems like everybody else in the world smokes more than Americans now. That might just be a single positive thing about our terrible healthcare system, that Americans pay more directly for their own health problems and therefore have more incentive to quit smoking.

When they banned smoking in my town, I was shocked that smokers actually complied. Smokers hated it, but they honored the law. I was convinced they'd just ignore it.

These days you still can't smoke, but you can vape. Marginally better for you? Maybe.

I remember when the trailer for Bullet Train came out. The movie looked fun and exciting.

Yesterday I watched it since it's on Netflix. It's too long, and while a couple of characters are mildly interesting, including Brad Pitt's, the writing is mostly hacky and the movie physics surrounding the bullet train itself are REALLY too much. Like imagine the most ridiculous things they might have happen with a bullet train, and then make them more ridiculous.

If it was 30+ minutes shorter, I'd give it a half-hearted recommendation, but.... nah
