Season 2 finds Sunny (Daniel Wu) and M.K. (Aramis Knight) separated and scattered to the wind, each imprisoned in unlikely places. While M.K. struggles to control his powers, Sunny is determined to fight his way back into the Badlands to find his family or die trying. On their journey, Clipper and Colt are assisted by mysterious new allies whose motivations may be anything but pure. Meanwhile, the Widow (Emily Beecham) continues to consolidate power against the other Barons, while a dark and mysterious threat prepares to exact revenge on them all. Alliances are struck, friendships betrayed, and by season’s end, Sunny and M.K.’s lives will be forever altered with devastating consequences.

The season premieres tonight at 10pm EDT on AMC

That was a hell of a way to start the season and plenty of action to go around too. That opening scene of Sunny trying to escape and that entire oil refinery battle with The Widow just slicing and dicing her way to the Baroness was fucking awesome. And of course Quinn is still alive and now taking care of Veil. Eventually, I think he'll take back control from Ryder, who judging by this episode isn't doing the best job as Baron. And nice to see Nick Frost join the cast this season.

An effective use of both is best I think. I always liked the way horror games did it, initially everything was absolutely mysterious but over time you would find documents and recordings explaining how things came to get to this point, or at least hint at how, and when done right unveiling things just made it all the more frightening. Silent Hill and System Shock were both great at that.

You ever play Alan Wake? It did that really well in my opinion. You'd find manuscripts written by the main character (Alan, a horror author) scattered throughout the levels that would foreshadow what you're about to run into as the player, only Alan has no memory of writing the story, only that it is now the reality he faces.
Also, it's split into episodic chapters that end in cliffhangers and start with a "previously on..." which frame it as this really cool horror show.

Goddamn, I need to play through that game again.

I disagree on Myers, he was a lot scarier as a boogeyman in the original Halloween. Zombie's take was better than most of the sequels especially all that magic cult bs, but nothing beats that original.

also, that idea of unexplained horror being scarier comes from the fact that the less we know, the more we can project. and generally, what we can imagine is scarier than what anyone can actually come up with, because it's personal. when everything is laid out for you it's a lot harder to actually be scary.

As soon as you know the monster is the ghost of the previous home owner, as soon as you know that the murders are caused by a vampire, as soon as you know that the horror is some kind of space ant, you can formulate a strategy to fight the horror.

At that point, the horror film stops being a horror film and just becomes an action movie with a scary villain.

As long as the scary thing remains unknown, the longer the film stays scary.

FEUD : Bette and Joan, the first installment of the new anthology series from creator Ryan Murphy, tells the story of the legendary rivalry between Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) during their collaboration on the Academy Award-nominated thriller What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, and well after the cameras stopped rolling. The series explores how the two women endured ageism, sexism, and misogyny while struggling to hang on to success and fame in the twilight of their careers.

The series premieres tonight at 10pm EST on FX.

Finally watched the first two episodes but this has been pretty good so far especially Lange and Sarandon's portrayals of Joan and Bette. While I don't think it's on the level of American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson, I think that given Murphy's history with developing this season, I do think this season and Feud, in general, has the potential to be as good as ACS. Heck, they're already developing a second season on Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Surprised no one's talking about it but I do have interest in seeing a period piece during the Golden Age of Hollywood.

I'm ok with a hiatus. They'll be back eventually. Hopefully using this time to focus on other projects or whatever else will recharge their batteries for some fresh new Sunny. They've put out 12 seasons and while there have been some misses, it's mostly hits. That's incredible for a comedy series and pretty much any show. They were getting too heavy on the callback jokes and it's obvious to everyone. So if they are going to do more in the future, they wrote a perfect cliffhanger/finale for it

I've never liked Fallon but it sucks that he's being forced to make his show more political. Colbert and Meyers already dedicate everything but the interview segments to politics, now that's one less show for escape.

Yeah, like I think I said in the other thread, porn is banned in Korea so you get pretty explicit scenes in the normal movies to try and make up for it.

It made some sense in the context of the movie, but the LAST sex scene felt pretty gratiuitious.

>European movies where the Ibiza youth/party scene from the 90s-2000s plays a prominent role

'Morvan Caller' is a 2002 movie about an autistic (not really but kinda) girl who falls into ill-gotten riches after she publishes her boyfriend's novel under her name after his suicide. It's an impressionistic, visuals-led narrative that conveys more with setting and scene than dialog as Morvan travles around Europe and experiences things she would never have expected in her former life of a grocery store clerk. It's a great movie.

At one the titular Morvan brings a friend with her to Ibiza to vacation and party. The movie shows decadent, slovenly middle class 20s-30s Europeans doing tons of drugs, going crazy in rave-esque laser show dance rooms, having easy fun sex, and lounging on the beach. Aphex Twin, Can, Broadcast and Stereotlab are some of the period music they use to marvelous effect. I have become obsessed with this period of culture and music. Can anyone, especially British users, recommend me movies that have this feel and capture the youth Ibiza/Majorca scene particularly during the 90s-2000s golden years?

Personal blog: I like to mentally LARP as an upper middle class European who lives a blissful jetset/party ocean life during the summer. I'm an introverted nerdy American who spent his 20s playing PC games but now, in my early 30s, have refound a love of fitness and the outdoors, pools, oceans, etc during summer time. Lately I've been listening to Ministry of Sound house mixes and other euro electro acts (like Air France) that capture the feeling of that time and place. The sounds and styles remind me of that time of my life which was joyous but I missed out on the summer beach experiences. features many great and some obscure electronic and alt bands of the late 90s-early 00's. This music brings out the aesthetic and vibe of being totally fucking relaxed and living a paradisical life.

Anyone catch this? I enjoyed the first two episodes. Basically about Pete Holmes's life on the road as a comedian, while he crashes at other comedians places.

Looking forward to future episodes, the show seems to have a lot of potential.
