Been binging Dear White People. Three episodes in and I'd already put as one of best Netflix original comedies yet. Should probably also watch the film it's based off of too.

Then I can understand why he'd feel that way given the investment he's had in the show. I don't disagree with the complaints about those two points but I personally didn't feel like it completely detracted from the story itself given Sunny's personal storyline and disposition as a character.

On a technical level this movie is extremely flawed
Predictable and just generally dumb story, bad cgi and overuse of it, some awful acting and even the decent actors in the movie seem to ham it up, but somehow I had a lot of fun watching it.
Its just so stupid and mindless and there doesn't seem to be a lot of pure adventure movies made these days like it.
Don't get me wrong it deserves the scores and reviews it got but I would definitely recommend it if you're getting really drunk or high or even just hanging out with friends. I mean Ra drives a fucking heavenly space ship and fights crazy space worms, that alone is just so hilariously awful that its awesome.
I'm sure the movie took some things from egyptian mythos but its how they present it with over the top cheese and terrible cgi work that makes it enjoyable. The movie definitely doesn't take itself seriously at all

Finished the season. It was alright but overall not as good as the first two seasons. I do appreciate how the show has handled Kimmy's approach of moving on from what happened in the bunker and the implication that she was sexually abused. And Titus really is the show's breakout character since he steals pretty much every scene he's in.

And on second thought, I actually do think this season was better than last. It didn't have as many laugh out loud jokes but I thought that it was much better written and better focused on the show's four main characters.

In 1978 with disco reigning supreme, a new music genre is burgeoning, with young lovers Zeke (Justice Smith) and Mylene (Herizen F. Guardiola) caught up in the looming cultural revolution. Amidst the backdrop of a bankrupt New York City, ruthless gangsters and money-hungry record label bosses, they discover it’s only their creativity and love that will carry them through – and that they’ll sacrifice everything for their music, and each other.

By the end, it was just getting ridiculous. The first part had a kind of quasi-mythical feel to it, but this time Baz went full Baz, and the story became less of a mythical tribute to the early days of hip hop, and more of a cartoon fantasy using hip hop as a prop. Like I said, it was like bad fanfiction; the big scene in the final episode where they team up with all the legends of early hip hop against Cadillac was just cheesy as fuck, I couldn't take it seriously.

I still enjoyed it, but near the end I was getting sceptical about where the show was going, and once the show fell apart the last episode was just a chore to get through.

Those animated scenes were total dogshit too, they should've just left them out entirely.

That kinda happened, in their final throes of rebellion against ye olde recorded medium those big parties kinda happened.

Then less than a couple years later they started putting out records. Everything was fine, and Planet Rock is still the best hip hop album on earth.

Oh yeah, that was the other thing that bugged me. Like, the show makes a big scene about how stopping this whole record thing was a big deal, then tells you that it happened anyway and everything was fine. The fuck.

Part 2 was like an inversion of Part 1, instead of starting out tedious and getting great near the end it went the other way round this time. Man, I knew we were in trouble the moment the cabaret dude showed up.

yeah... like someone else said, Baz ended up going full Baz. The whole Rubycon scene... should have been handled much better. I liked it in the first part where Diz went to where-ever-thefuck-it-was (I don't remember, but you know what I mean, Baz being Baz again) because that had legit development for his character and was a nice showcase of an even more "underground" aspect of that era. But the whole Rubycon thing... Not in this series, Baz. You fucked it.

The Rayburns are hard-working pillars in their Florida Keys community, but their past contains dark secrets that they hope remain buried. Paranoia and mistrust build as lies pile up, alliances are shattered and an unthinkable crime takes place with the tight-knit family's formerly harmonious relationship deteriorating. They're not bad people, but they did a bad thing... and then a few dozen more. And that will most certainly continue as the Rayburns reach the end of their morally ambiguous journey.

Finished the season. It sucks they had to condense 4 seasons worth of story into one but I thought that it was pretty good for what it was and for showing how much a bunch of shitheads like the Rayburns truly are for framing Eric for Marco's murder and covering up Danny being put in the hospital by his dad 30 years ago. Kevin, as usual, let his own fuck up of murdering Marco eventually bite him, in the end, getting arrested by the DEA. John really did want to make things right and I guess that final scene with Nolan was his closure for killing Danny and move on from his past. And Meg ran away to start a whole new life in LA, which is okay but I wish they had featured her more this season but I guess they couldn't.

What did you guys think? I noticed there wasn't a lot of discussion for the final season on the internet. Overall I think the show subsided in the last two seasons and didn't live up to the high expectations set by season 1's quality especially given Ben Mendohlson's tremendous performance as Danny but the acting was very high and made the slow burn this show is known more intense to watch.

Based on Neil Gaiman's novel and developed by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, American Gods pits Old Gods against New Gods, with the ancient mythological ones fearing irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the younger deities. Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is an ex-con who, left adrift by the recent death of his wife, becomes a bodyguard and traveling partner to conman Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). But in truth, Mr. Wednesday is a powerful old deity, on a cross-country mission to build an army and reclaim his lost glory.

The series premieres tonight at 9pm EDT on Starz

Weakest episode yet tonight, unfortunately. I understand why they wanted to take the time to fully explain Shadow's relationship with Laura as it was a big part of the book, but I don't think it translated to television all that well; it simultaneously felt like table setting and the show spinning it's wheels going nowhere which is not a good thing for a mid-season episode. I'd be interested to see the ratings and if they lost audience draw this week after 3 straight weeks of building as they kind of threw that out the door with this one, which I again understand from a narrative standpoint but still don't love as it kills the momentum of the show. It contained all aspects in earlier episodes and then chose to focus on a single one for this story, which I have a feeling will not be received well. People here have mentioned a few times how the "Coming to America" segments were some of their favorite parts of the show and they completely ignored that aspect of the story in this on. Not only that, but we went nowhere in the development of the New Gods at all, other than the news that Laura has superhuman strength in the show. I don't remember that coming up in the book but maybe I'm forgetting, it was awhile ago.

Anyway, yeah, not a great one.

Agreed. While I thought that they did a decent job of showing Laura's backstory leading up to meeting Shadow again but that was pretty much it. I did like Laura's interaction with Mr. Jacquel before she got resurrected and killing Technical Boy's henchmen at least. I can understand if they didn't do a Somewhere in America segment this week since they did two last week and she was the primary focus. Next week should be better I think.

They didn't do a big gay sex scene until season 3. And I couldn't stop laughing.

But all gladiator movies and such make a mistake when they decide to only be subtextually homoerotic. I love the show for its political drama and 1000fps graphic novelly action and visuals, but you're missing out on a huge audience of gays and women who can appreciate it more fully.

Also there's literally a whole episode about a guy's prosthetic dick.
Also this. They threw this in at one point. Is that her dick? Did she get it from a dead guy? Why is a hand missing?[%] This show asks the big questions.

Great fucking episode this week. The casting for this show was really spot on, that weird actor is perfect as Mr. World and he and the new gods all crushed it in this one. I'm still not all that intrigued by the Shadow/wife thing but I did like how they built on her POV of being near him and kissing him bringing her back to life for a heartbeat, and the sequence with her and Sweeny trying to get his coin back was pretty good. I guess I just didn't appreciate them dedicating a whole episode to her backstory, if they had doled it out more evenly I might have appreciated it more. Then again I also might have been annoyed if they were watering down other storylines to fit that in, so getting it all out in one episode might have been the right call. In any case, they're 4/5 in terms of good episodes vs bad so far and things are only just starting to heat up.

I've been pleasantly surprised by this show in the best way, I said it was going to be the only show I follow week to week until GoT based on my liking of the source material and it has been very enjoyable, good stuff, etc.

>First there was an opportunity, then there was a betrayal. Twenty years later, Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to the only place that he can ever call home. There waiting for him are old buddies Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle). Sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, love, fear, regret, self-destruction and mortal danger are also all lined up and ready to welcome him.

I saw T2 Trainspotting last night, and it is amazing. I don't really want to spoil too much, but it's largely original and not really based on Porno. It's a great film if you've seen the first or not. There are a lot of callbacks, but everything you need to know from the first film is in the exposition.

Seriously, go see it.

I wouldnt say it was darker, it was dark but nothing as dark as a baby dying and later hallucinating that baby.

Its basically them coming to terms with being older, which can be pretty dark, basically nothing changed, they are all the exact same people in the exact same situation. But its a good film, i'd definetly recommend watching it.

Loads of call backs to the first movie for those fuzzy nostalgias.

It'll just be like last season when they were in witness protection over the hiatus, then were back to normal within like 2 episodes. Next year will open with some 2 or 3 part shenanigans where they get out. Maybe they even do a cool prison break and clear their names while on the run from the law. Jake would find that fun, he's a big fan of living out popular tropes.

Not a bad last two episodes of the season. Charles, Amy and Terry trying to find out if Gina was pregnant was funny especially when Charles saw Gina about to drink coffee and he just ran over to stop her. Jake and Rosa getting set up and now going to prison was an interesting storyline. That twist with that cop they were able to get testify ending up testifying against them was a surprise. Didn't see that one coming. Overall it was a pretty good season.

Yeah they'll find a way to get out of prison with the 99 to helping to clear their names and implicate Lt. Hawkins. Jake's gonna find a way to Die Hard his way out.

Set in 2010, the third installment of Fargo centers on Emmit Stussy and his slightly younger brother Ray (Ewan McGregor in dual roles). Emmit, the “Parking Lot King of Minnesota,” is a handsome, self-made real estate mogul with a perfect family – a real American success story. His slightly younger brother Ray is more of a cautionary tale. Wilted from a lifetime of living in Emmit’s shadow, Ray is a balding, pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt – and he blames his brother.

The only bright spot in Ray’s life is the love of a not-so-good woman, Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), one of his parolees. Nikki has brains, beauty and a deep and abiding passion for competitive bridge. She decides to help Ray turn his fortunes around, by essentially stealing back his good karma. Unsurprisingly, things quickly get out of hand and petty theft leads to murder. When the mayhem crosses county lines, Eden Valley Police Chief Gloria Burgle (Carrie Coon), a newly divorced mother, is called upon to investigate. Normally steady and imperturbable, Gloria is shaken when the case takes an unexpectedly personal turn.

The season premieres tonight at 10pm EDT on FX

He has creepy human slaves who follow his footsteps like loyal puppies. He couldn't take over the company by force, he needed to be invited in! And now he is sucking their souls. Basically. When he rants about the fine line between lie and reality, he is tongue and cheeck saying "vampires dont exist only because you tell yourself they dont, just like you tell yourself we landed on the moon." You'll keep telling yourself there's no such thing as vampires while he is sucking your blood right to your face and pissing in your Jew friends coffee cup.

Unlikely but I agree.
That scene where they show that he's bulimic was kinda like that.
I'm not sure if that's because he suffers from it or if he's just a glutton and very vain.
I'm inclined to lean towards the latter.

That's a pretty good way of looking at it. He does have seemingly supernatural charisma, or rather he manipulates people like it's nothing. And he sure as hell fits the stereotype of the eccentric vampire baron who descends from his mountain castle to prey upon the hapless villagers. I'm pretty sure bad things will continue to happen to (and around) the people he's using, even if they do end up fantastically wealthy (and certainly still his subordinate pawns).

I was thinking about this quite a bit. Here's my take on it. It's his MO. The bulimia is part of his whole perspective towards life. He consumes the world, but he does not carry it with him because he doesn't need or want to. He uses it for his purposes, then purges it out. He's very spartan. The lecture he gave Emmit about wearing $200 suits. It all reminds me of, I think it was in the first episode this season, where Emmit wants to pay him back and Vargo tells him, "No, you keep it." Totally disinterested, as if a child were offering him a piece of garbage they found. He doesn't wear his wealth; he uses it. Just like how he uses people.
So yeah, a glutton and very vain. That's what I think anyway.

Trailer for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant dropped 2 days ago, I'm just finding out about it now because Christmas overshadowed it. https://youtu.be/H0VW6sg50Pk

Thoughts? Prometheus was such a controversial movie, I'm interested to see how it affects the series going forward. I personally loved Prometheus, and watching this trailer, I feel like there may be an attempt to retcon it, which is disappointing. Otherwise, looks really great.

Nah, at least Prometheus had insanely good pacing and took the time to introduce (most) people before they were killed. Even ignoring how much I hate the direction this took the series in and the implication that David created the facehugger eggs we see in Alien it's just not made as well. It honestly felt like Ridley Scott didn't even care about it imo.

But really, Prometheus asked a bunch of questions and it would have been far more interesting to see a direct sequel that actually tried to answer them. The fact that Shaw got to Paradise but never got to confront her creators is a massively wasted opportunity. It's like they said "fuck it, who actually cared about all that lets just kill a bunch of people again. Oh but the captain is christian so here's some half-assed religious stuff that's never even important or actually addressed."

At least Resurrection kinda follows through with the same themes present in the previous Alien films.

One of the main problems with Scott's Prometheus trilogy thing is that it feels like it could be a completely separate set of films merely inspired by Alien but having nothing actually to do with them. Even if you liked Prometheus, if you approach as an Alien film AND as a part of the Alien franchise, it feels really out of place and almost like it's just been shoehorned into the Alien franchise for marketing purposes or because Scott thought that if he made the movies independent of Alien, these films wouldn't sell. By making Prometheus the "prequel" to the Alien franchise, a franchise Scott did not create but only directed the first film entry, which was based on the work of writer Dan O Bannon and the art of HR Giger, Scott probably thought he could use it as a platform for his own philosophical soap box without losing any money.

Resurrection may be a bad movie, but it's definitely much more in the spirit of the previous films and in the spirit of Giger's artwork than Prometheus where there seems to be a clash between the spirit of the Alien franchise and Ridley's own concepts, even right down to the design of the film. Alien Isolation as a video game does a much better job as a prequel/midquel entry that returns to the roots of the franchise than Prometheus does.

just saw this and thought it was basically okay, but I can understand people's complaints and those are pretty much what kept me from liking it more. There's really two movies here. There's what the director seems to have actually wanted to make, Prometheus 2: The Further Adventures of David, and the movie that either he or the studios felt needed to be made to draw people in, Alien 5: Just Like the First One But Super Duper Gory. The David & Walter stuff is really great, Fassbender continues to be dynamite in these things and there's an energy and thought put into those scenes that just isn't there for the rest of the film. There's also things to admire about all the slasher movie in space bits, like the opening scenes before they discover the planet, the crane fight and the impressively bleak ending, but it also suffers because of pretty much all the same things that hurt Prometheus, i.e. bad writing, far too many characters who are thinly developed and do stupid things for plot's sake, and a severely Ripley-esque main character played by an actress nowhere near as good as Sigourney Weaver.

I didn't hate it, and my gut feeling is it's the best Alien film in 30 some-odd years, but it also didn't do anything to change my opinion that Ridley Scott has lost his touch in a major way. Thank god he's not directing the Blade Runner sequel.

I feel like Ridley is trying to use these movies to explore some personal spiritual stuff he's been going through for a long time but the problem is that it just makes these movies seem a little too heavy handed in their philosophical musings and the musings themselves aren't all that deep or have been explored better in other films before it.

Actually a major positive was that I didn't find this one to be near as obnoxious about that kind of thing as Prometheus was. Prometheus was all about finding answers and the meaning of life and what not, Covenant is just a mean nasty movie that doesn't really give a shit about any of Prometheus' big questions and seems to, if anything, sympathize with David's desire to just destroy everything.

I'll also add in that vein that I love that they cast James Franco to get incinerated in 10 seconds. That's some next level Drew Barrymore in Scream shit.

Sharp and irreverent, Silicon Valley continues to lambast the self-important world of tech in a season that finds the Pied Piper team looking to leave their mark, even as they continue to fumble along the road to success.

Change is in the air as the Pied Piper guys pursue their video-chat app, PiperChat, but Richard has a hard time letting go of his dream to put his algorithm to better use. Dinesh flirts with notoriety, while Gilfoyle looks on in amusement. Erlich searches for his next big break. Jared attempts to pivot with the company. And Big Head enters the world of academia. Meanwhile, over at Hooli, Gavin finds himself threatened by Jack Barker, while Monica struggles to bounce back at Raviga after her fallout with Laurie.

The season premieres tonight at 10pm EDT on HBO

Who is the funniest character then?
Who the fuck else is even funny that's a main cast member?
Most of the main cast is mind numbingly dull, it's the people just outside of the inner circle that are funny.
