Supersonic air travel is finally coming back

I'm lucky enough to have been within metres of a Concord and I still remember when it retired and a model was placed outside Heathrow. It became an unattainable thing that you put on your bucket list and I was disappointed when British Airways decide not let Virgin Atlantic take on the Concorde brand.

Something that I was not aware of was the amount of fuel required to achieve supersonic travel. I guess it's obvious but the figures are much higher than I'd have ever thought they would be.

Toy Story 4 teaser trailer

I think this teaser trailer featuring Ducky (Jordan Peele) and Bunny (Keegan-Michael Key) is much better than the trailer I linked to.

The Best Of Enemies trailer

Based on a true story, THE BEST OF ENEMIES centers on the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater (Henson), an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971.

Sometimes I just don't know what to make of movies like this, based on true stories during racially charged times. Not the story, or the performance. But the fact that this was less than 50 years ago. Less than 15 years before I was born. It's staggering people thought like this towards the end of the 20th century and absolutely depressing that there are still those that think this way now.
