Watching walking dead for the first time and SPOILER ALERT




Why did Daryl shoot Dale? Like 2 episodes ago Rick is going off about how they need to start using their knives more to kill solo walkers to make less noise. Then, before Dale even TURNS they shoot him in the face. Even more stupid, DARYL MR CROSSBOW shoots him. Why didn't Daryl use his use crossbow?

main characters were likable and well-cast, some decent humor and world building (at least in the first 30 minutes) and they actually used colors occasionally. Didn't think it was a great movie, the effects are alarmingly bad in spots and the final action scene particularly is as bad as anything in Suicide Squad or BvS, but I didn't think it was a bad movie either.

I've been watching Naked Attraction after seeing a clip of it on redbit. It's a gameshow from the brits where six contestants stand in a booth naked, and their bodies are slowly revealed to a guy or gal who pick one to go on a date with based on how they look naked.

Round 1: You see the cock/vag and legs.
Round 2: Torso
Round 3: Face
Round 4: You hear their voices
Round 5: The chooser comes out naked, and the finalists critique his/her body.

It has a sex positive vibe, which is great. The contestants aren't staggeringly ugly, but they aren't all models either. It's also fun seeing what different tastes people have. They talk a lot about preferences as they choose.

Check it out, it's all over youtube somehow. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxqd1NCl2lE

Some people you aren't supposed to see naked, and sadly that applies to like 95% of the people on that show. I got like 3 episodes in searching for a hot chick and the closest I got was a cute-looking girl with nice tits that had terrible stretch marks on her stomach. :|

That's what I like about it the show. There's so many average and sometimes even frumpy people on it. If they all looked like porn stars or models it'd be boring.

It's much more interesting seeing what a bunch of randos look like under their clothes, because that's who you meet when you're dating.

There's a somewhat similiar show here in the Netherlands called Adam seeking Eve.

They're on a tropical island though, and both people see each other naked right away, they also introduce a third person at some point.

From what litle I've seen most of the "contenders" are pretty decent looking, they also had some celebs to boost ratings

America has a spin-off of that (or rip-off?) called Dating Naked where it's the same set-up: naked guy and naked woman meet up for a naked date on some Caribbean island. There's also a similar show called Naked & Afraid that's less about dating but it does pair a couple together, naked, and puts them in the wilderness for like a day to test their relationship and see if they can survive without hating each other.

Now that I think about it, America has a lot of naked game shows these days, which is really weird because America still believes in the outdated Puritanical values that sex and nudity is the devil and so even though there's multiple naked whatever shows on TV now they're all censored because titties and weiners on TV would drive Americans into murderous rages if they aren't blocked out.

I think the key difference is that Robert Webb isn't playing a naive and accidentally evil idiot anymore, he's playing someone who's devious and deliberately conniving. He was always good at being arch in their sketch show so I'm looking forward to seeing them make a full character of it. The writers are all backed by a solid portfolio of good shows so I think this has the potential to become pretty good.

>Room 104 s01e07 - The Missionaries

I actually really liked this episode and seeing how those that become devoted to and spreading the word of religion like Mormons do can question their own faith and doing questionable things like drinking caffeine and not looking at porn. I thought it had some intense emotional moments like when the one missionary pushed the other one and got knocked out but then through prayer, he came back to life and renewed his own faith in religion.

I also really liked episode 5, which I forgot to mention. That twist about that author's mom actually not being his birth mother though.

>You're the Worst s04e03 - Odysseus

I think this episode surprised me by how they scripted Jimmy and Gretchen's first encounter in 3 months and her realization that she did mention family after he proposed, which given Jimmy's father's death, scared him and made him run away and they thought like "how stupid we were to have stayed away from each other." I thought maybe they'll reconcile but then after she didn't catch his book and left with Lindsay, I felt like that moment was left ambiguous about whether or not they've reconciled and moved on but guess is that they haven't.

Someone did an article about how IMDB calculates, basically you have to rate a lot of movies before your ratings count. And they've pinned down the demographic to college age middle European males.

So IMDB ratings are less about film quality and more about what German college freshmen make them look cool, which tends to be stuff like Christopher Nolan and Edgar Wright.

I think that's only half-right. From what I remember back when I used IMDB religiously it's that there's basically two different user aggregate ratings for each movie. The one you see on the movie's page is the actual aggregate rating of every rating, which you can clic kon and see the demographic splits, including the split for the "IMDB 1000" which is the esteemed group of Eurotrash fart-sniffers you're talking about. If you to the Top 205 page, though, you'll notice that the rating you saw on a movie's IMDB page may differ than what's shown here, because on the Top 250 page it only shows the result of only the "IMDB 1000" user score aggregate.

In the case of Baby Driver the IMDB page lists it at 8.0 right now, but if you click the demographic link below you'll see that the fartsniffers only rate it a 7.1, an as such, it isn't in the IMDB Top 250. So really, the majority of non-fartsniffers actually really enjoy the movie. The funny thing is that minors (under 18) rate the movie the highest, so perhaps that's why the two guys above thought it was just average and not amazing.

That being said, even though I don't use IMDB as much these days (I miss using their message boards, it's a shame the toxic boards on the popular movies fucked over the rest of us that just wanted to shoot the shit about movies we watched as a kid and growing up) I still prefer their aggregate user rating for movies over Rotten Tomatoes' retarded rating system.

>Room 104 s01e08 - Phoenix

I actually have wanted to see a show try to depict being a sole survivor especially a plane crash in an honest manner and I thought Amy Landecker did a good job portraying that and Mae Whitman, who I realized played Ann Veal on Arrested Development, as an angel. It was pretty creepy but a great episode nonetheless.

>Better Things s02e01 - September

I liked the season premiere and Sam trying to deflect Arturo's advances and Duke daring those girls to put Monopoly houses up their vaginas and making that one girl scream penis was pretty cringe but still funny. I did think that Sam having to deal with Max's problem of her getting in over her head with her 20 years older boyfriend and her friend's ex was succinct and to the point. Pamela Adlon has done well for herself playing a lead role.

>Broad City s04e01 - Sliding Doors

I guess last season turned a lot of people off on the show on here given that there's been no discussion about it but the season premiere was okay even if it was a flashback episode to show how Abbi and Ilana first met that felt cliche especially with its format that shows like Malcolm in the Middle have done in a much better and funnier fashion. I do hope we get to see more of Trey, Bevers and Lincoln this season.

>Veep s01e01 & 2 - Fundraiser & Frozen Yoghurt

My friend and I just started watching this. So far it's pretty good and Selina reminds me of a more mean-spirited version of Leslie Knope but it's funny. I guess I can see now why Julia Louis-Dreyfus has won so many awards for her role.

>2017 Emmy Awards

I thought Stephen Colbert did a fine job hosting this year's awards. I'm not really surprised about Big Little Lies and The Handmaid's Tale winning the most awards as they were both very good shows. I'm glad that Atlanta and the episode San Junipero on Black Mirror picked up some awards.

I kept expecting the joke to wear thin and stop being funny, but it never happened. pretty solid season and i loved all the characters, but if they have a second season I'd rather it be about something completely different, with different kids at a different school. this one had a satisfying enough ending for me.

Four episodes in and I'm enjoying it so far. It reminds me sort of like Parks and Rec, but without the talking to the camera thing, but the comedy seems to be around the same kind of topics.

There's no characters I found not funny, although maybe that will happen later on. My girlfriend loves it and she used to work as a retail manager for years, so I guess it's pretty relatable if you've worked there.

So, they released the trailer for the rebooted Tomb Raider, which seems to be inspired by the rebooted video game. Here's the trailer:
https://youtu.be/8ndhidEmUbI

And here's the trailer for the video game:
https://youtu.be/RN7_8Yholm4

Who did it better? ..... Why do they go out of their way to make video game movies suck ass? It's the tongue-in-cheek humor constantly trying to diddle it's way into your asshole. It's the hyperfocus on being "epic" and "badass". You can have those things, but they shouldn't be your selling point — that rebooted game was an emotional rollercoaster, it was watching the transformation from frail normie to hardened survivor. You don't see that in the trailer, Alicia Vikander's character seems as dull as a rock.

All I can think are the infamous words of Roger Ebert: "Video games cannot be art."

>All I can think are the infamous words of Roger Ebert: "Video games cannot be art."

Not disagreeing with any of your points about the Tomb Raider Movie, but that quote was a retarded statement when he made it and it still is today. Just because Hollywood has a predilection for shitting out hastily made bullshit based on recognizable properties doesn't mean the idea of making a good adaptation is inherent impossible. It's like saying chocolate can never be good after you never eaten anything but that imitation Hershey coco-butter shit your whole life.

And that's just talking about video game to movie adaptations. Video games in their natural form are fucking art. Most things crafted by humans are fucking art (especially an immersive experience that usually involves scripted choreography, illustration, and narrative is art, even if you think it's lowbrow. Lowbrow art is still art) and it will always only be pretentious fucking assholes who think they have some kind of authority to not merely diagnose something as poorly made or unenjoyable to them personally, but to go all the way and say a fucking medium, genre, or style is invalid. What a close minded and cancerous attitude for a reviewer to have

There are video game movies I enjoy. Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Super Maro Brothers — I enjoyed them.

But none of them were "great", appreciated by audience and critics alike. It's pretty goddamn unfortunate because I think that there are some awesome video game stories out there that would become film classics, and they end up never happening or getting the worst treatment from a bunch or European nobodies.

I really want them to make a Bioshock movie. Dark Souls would be some avant-garde shut. Metro 2033 is another that could be really good.

But what I really want is a Fallout tv show. With Game of Thrones ending, HBO needs another crowd pleaser and Fallout, with it's violence, humor, and strong focus on characters, would perfectly fill the void. The only thing is it'd probably end up being far more expensive than GoT with the amount of CGI and special effects that would be needed to bring that world to life.

You can't really use movies based on video games as evidence that video games can't be art - because they're movies, not video games. And can movies be art? We know they can.
>>388572
But in defence of Roger Ebert (who was wrong and made himself sound like an uncultured teenager rather than one of the most perceptive film critics of all time), he did later retract what he said and admitted that he wasn't familiar enough with the medium to assert something like that. When you've devoted your life to an established medium with over a century of history it must be difficult to admit that something new and freeform has credibility or potential. That's just what happens when you get older, I don't hold it against the man and it was big of him to admit it wasn't his place.

The biggest issue with video game movies is the reason why video games are enjoyable is because they require your constant involvement and you need to beat the puzzle, where as in movies you are put behind the fourth wall and are no longer involved the same way you are with a movie, you arent solving the puzzle angelina jolie is.

i saw the intro scene when the camera version came out and decided to wait for a high quality since i could tell it was gonna be a very visual and audio based movie. the way the music matched the movie was spectacular

the rest of the movie was beyond retarded. the girl was so shoehorned in and whole movie would've been way better without her. literally someone went "wait but how can we force him to stick to his life of crime if he doesnt have some dumb waitress bitch to go back to?

ending gave me aids and made no sense baby survives like 5000 run away scenes and jon hamm takes like 12 bullets before dying and oh wait no he didnt

if you just wanna watch a crazy car chase movie and dont mind sitting through retarded drivel it's fine to watch recommend just skip through any scene with the waitress and it's an okay movie. again soundtrack implementation is 10/10 but all the following stuff turns it into 1.5/10 movie cus shit made no sense

>really cant stress enough how the waitress had seriously no place in the movie at all, only reason for her inclusion is to give baby some retarded link to the town he lives in
>baby has literally nobody in his life at all but spacey can threaten to kill "everyone he knows" even though literally the only guy he knows is old black man
>so much retarded stuff like darling getting shot and then it not being mentioned ever again and she shows no issue with it
>end of movie waitress legit has no problem at all running off with this guy shes known 2 days after he shoots a guy in the face even though he doesnt talk and in general is just creepy af
>spacey has super random change of heart even though his whole life he lives as a ruthless do anything for a buck guy he gives up his selfishness for random fuckin kid cus omg theyre in loveee
>baby straight up runs away from cops even though theres like 10 million of them all chasing but he manages to just run slightly faster
>jon hamm miraculously survives/comes back to life like 3 times (oh yeah and this random waitress actually is okay in helping kill him with the car)
>apparently this waitress has no family or friends because she's just totally cool with driving off and leaving her entire life behind for this autistic kid

if they had just made a movie with any other hook than "dumb simple country waitress girl, she aint got much but she got that old heart of gold and made of sweetness and honey :)" bullshit it coulda been good and tone down some of the ridiculousness but they just love shoehorning in these lame ass love stories that make 0 sense

Really? I thought it was a generic feeling heist movie that feels like it has been done 100 times before and Jamie Fox just played an unfunny version of Motherfucker Jones. The tried to make all the characters too cool to the point it was kind of cringy and the ending just came hamfisted to me. In my opinion it wasn't awful, but it wasn't what I would call good either. It feels like one we'll all forget about in year. If it was playing again on a flight or something I would watch it again.

I think we just disagree, I saw it twice in theaters and will definitely rewatch it as much as Wrights other films, which is a pretty decent amount. Speaking of generic heist movies though have you seen Logan Lucky? I wasnt expecting much at all but it really surprised me, and even made me like Adam Driver. Its also an actual heist movie while baby driver turns into a campy action flick towards the end.

I didn't know it was made by the Shaun of the Dead guy but that raises the bar in my opinion.

I think if Micheal Bay made this movie it would have been fun. Instead we got something that took you to the brink of fun and left you there while they explored "hu-man" interactions and relationships with all the subtly of a shape shifting alien trying to pass of as a pre-pubesant boy.

It's the breakout indie darling of the year, meaning that while it won't be everyone's cup of tea, the buzz surrounding it works like a dog whistle for contrarian dicknoses who need to loudly proclaim their dislike of the movie, even if they haven't watched it, because they need to right the karmic imbalance in their headcanon.

Yeah, from what I've seen in the news, crime has had a sharp uptick recently in the UK, but sure you're right, the UK is totally way safer than the US. No need to fear crime in the UK. But hell, even before this uptick you guys didn't feel safe going out at night. Or maybe people in the UK are just skittish. Who knows. Not everyone can be as hardy as us Americans.
Not to mention all of the terrorist attacks that have been happening lately.
Can't really compare statistics though, considering that your gracious queen has only bequeathed you with knives to kill your inbred brethren with.

Watching some Rugrats on the Splat. God, this is the best kid's cartoon ever. The amount of creativity and the weirdness of it all, the humor, the horror, the heart-warming messages.

I was reminded tonight of one of my favorite episodes, where they go to the beach and Chuckie stows away his sea monkeys in an ice chest with the intent of releasing the sea monkeys into the ocean. It's up there as being one of the best episodes, classic Rugrats, and that ending makes me tear up.

Watched two vampire movies tonight, Near Dark and The Lost Boys. Both are from 1987. Weird.

Near Dark was a great movie. Or at least almost a great movie. Its first half is much stronger than its second, but its ending does manage to sort of pick itself up in the way things tie together. Overall I'm just not sure what theme the movie was trying to get across though. Without getting heavily into spoilers, it's a movie that could have been about, and for a while was about, learning to deal and grow from a change as big as becoming a vampire. This is when the movie is at its best and I really wasn't sure where it was going to go, its story is far from formulaic and kept me guessing. But something happens in the second half of the movie that makes it revert to a formulaic, predictable story. It's only disappointing because there was such huge potential here. As it is, it's still a strong movie with a strong sense of atmosphere, great Tangerine Dream soundtrack, a few incredible performances, and some truly memorable scenes. I'll never forget the bar scene in this movie. Plus there's just a really consistent and fun logic to all the vampire stuff in this movie that I really enjoyed.

The Lost Boys, almost standing polar opposite to Near Dark, had a second half that was much stronger than the first. It's a movie that really came together by the time the end credits came around, though I think overall the storytelling and pacing here was just sloppier. Although not as grounded and arguably not as good as Near Dark was, it's a much more fun movie that has a lighter tone. It's a lot more full of goofy 80's things that really brands it as an unmistakable 80s film, which isn't a bad thing, but that doesn't mean it's aged well. Still fun, still entertaining, but stuck in a time capsule.

Near Dark, on the other hand, has aged surprisingly well. I'd highly recommend it and would almost go as far to say it's an overlooked horror classic, so long as you don't expect its story to completely blow you away. Fully entertaining movie with a lot of great things going for it, but man, there's just that one story element that dropped the ball and really managed to turn things around.

Was the best kid's cartoon. Or at least one of 'em.
What breaks my heart about Rugrats is just how bad it got as time went on. If you compare the pilot to, like, anything from season 5 and beyond, it's night and day. I mean, look at this pilot. This animation is so cool. There's just so much character and texture to it all that was lost as it went on.

No, is. There's nothing better than it, not even that Rick and Morty bullshit you guys are always going on about.

And yeah, major drop in quality over time. As the animation gets smoother, the show gets worse. But you can also trace the drop to pic related.

Pretty obvious that Klasky won out in the end — the reason why latter Rugrats sucked was because it felt too childish.

This show is amazing. Idk how I managed to not watch it until now. It's one of those classic Sci Fi channel shows from back when the channel was really good. Late 90's early 2000's.
The show reminds me a bit of Brazil. It's a goofy, funny, ultra-dark dystopia. Except this has a lot more gore and violence. And fucking awesome practical effects.
After watching the hour and a half pilot I'm totally hooked.
Xev is sooo hot. I'm just as in love with her as her little robot head friend.

No, PPG was the best cartoon of all time. The comedy plus the violence plus the storylines saw to that. Rugrats is good but come ON son. It's a snoozefest compared to PPG. Here, look at tye first episode for ppg. It's fire. Straight creative fire. Plus, in all of ppgs 6 seasons, it never dropped in animation quality. It kept that beautifully minimalistic yet highly expressive and angular style. All in all, it's fantastic. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uGc-TgXN6FA

What the fuck? The movie has the hero save the world by finding common ground with the Chinese government by speaking to them on their terms in their own language, specifically against the orders of the US military who wanted to escalate. Paranoid redneck soldiers almost fuck everything when their Alex Jones stand in convinces them that these interstellar foreigners can't be trusted and must be seen as an enemy-in-waiting. The whole point of the story is that empathy and communication wins out over militarism, nationalism and xenophobia. Petty geopolitical squabbling by the affected nations, including both China and the US, almost destroys humanity's chance to reach enlightenment. Refusing to buy into it, and refusing to listen to the US government, saves the day.

That's like the exact fucking opposite of what you think it is.

Doesn't everyone complain that movie trailers summarize the entire movie nowadays? It's okay — I have zero intentions of ever watching this movie, so I read the summary on Wikipedia, and yeah, it's just as I thought from the trailer.

It's American propaganda. Aliens arrive, USA tries to talk to them, China and Russia threaten to destroy aliens, USA has to race against time to save the world. YAWN. And yeah I guess some USA soldiers blow shit up too, but they're """rogue""".

And the whole message of "If we just communicated, there'd be no conflict!" is liberal as fuck. I'm sure the Department of Defense loved helping make this movie 👍

I don't need to watch the movie to know what happens, anymore than I need to watch a fucking Marvel movie to know that the heroes win and the bad guys lose.

>just because you merely *suspect* it of not portraying the Russian military as perfect, amazing knights in shining armor.

There is no suspect, it's just a fact at this point that America's "enemies" are portrayed as aggressive, ruthless, uncompromising, unintelligent, etc. Look at the end of the film — Amy Adams saves the world with an appeal to emotion towards the Chinese general; like a child. It's an insult, truly.

Meanwhile, the USA is the good guy world police who makes mistakes but always gets the job done and ensures the sun rises tomorrow.
All this is nothing new, it's happened for decades, since the beginning.

I don't think Russia is the best country in the world, nor do I think they're perfect. I don't need to be "Russian shill" to feel disgust and repulsion towards the USA's propaganda. This entire notion of a "Russian shill" is symptomatic of the very thing I'm talking about — your brain is completely and utterly fucked. Anyone who doesn't stand with you is a foreign entity intruding on your safe space, peddling a secret Russian agenda. It's retarded and precisely why I never bothered with "Arrival", because it's just another one of those movies that casually perpetuates and reinforces the mindsets of people like you.

If you want to talk about this further, make a thread on /pol/ and I will explain to you why this is no contradiction. But if you don't want to, okay, just watch the movie "They Live" and maybe you'll piece it together on your own.

>American Gods season 1

Wtf did I just watch? I mean I had a great time but this show is weird AF. Not just the story though, most of the production and presentation is pretty unusual. Might be because I went in mostly blind.

The theme really gripped me though once enough of the pieces connected with me. Like the appearance of Anansi, believe it of not I did an art project back in like 6th grade based on an Anansi folklore story. And that's just one example that reminded me of my past interest for mythology.

Anyway I look forward to the next season because this shit is my jam.

The season didn't feel whole especially with that finale, which didn't feel like a finale at all. It took me reading comments to realize that was the last episode of the season. Still, I enjoyed it to an extent I'll pretty much watch anything with Ian McShane, other characters like Mad Sweeney were icing on the cake

I mean I haven’t read the book but I’m familiar with the thematic stylings of co-creator Bryan Fuller from his previous show Hannibal. It’s fairly similar though being on Starz lets him do more than what he could do on NBC.

I was watching Spider Man: Homecoming, but I decided to turn it off and finish it some other time. I dunno why, but it's just a weird movie for me. It's boring as fuck, it has some heartfelt moments, but somehow I'd still take this movie over Amazing Spider Man any day.

>Cult of Chucky

I'm still kind of reeling from this movie.

On the one hand, it's definitely different. Don Mancini managed to take it in a direction I never expected. It's horrifying in ways that have little to do with a supernaturally possessed killer doll. The writing, direction, and plot are all the best Mancini has put out so far in his career and he succeeds in creating a film that's unsettling and captivating all at once. I couldn't take my eyes off it and Mancini manages to weave the mystery throughout the movie in such a way that you can't really understand what's going on until he absolutely wants you to.

On the other hand he's gone completely off the rails in terms of what we expect out of a Chucky film. Even Seed of Chucky was more in lock-step with the other films than Cult is. Cult veers off into its own insane territory far removed from what came before. This could be considered a great thing, as it certainly breathes new life into the franchise. And I can't stop thinking about it, which means it accomplished its goal insofar as bringing the franchise back into the forefront of my mind. But if you go into it expecting the same "Chucky returns-goes on a murderous adventure-dies" formula from the previous six films you will be disappointed.

Cult of Chucky is gloriously fucked up. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Of course. Sam Raimi's Spider Man movies aged like shit, and they're way too campy for me to watch.

I just finished watching Homecoming. It was a good, heartfelt movie, and I like how Peter Parker is finally portrayed as a believable teenager. Michael Keaton was pretty great in this movie, though. My favorite scene was when he deduced that Peter was Spider Man just by listening to him speak.

One thing I didn't like is how forced MJ's character is in the movie. Remember Brainy from Hey Arnold? All of her appearances felt exactly like him, her scenes were kind of awkward, and they weren't funny either. But yeah... overall I think I'd give Spider Man: Homecoming a 7.8/10. Like you, I just don't give a shit anymore.

I found that Homecoming was much better on second viewing. First time through I was also suffering reboot fatigue and it can make the first watch kind of a slog as you can't shake the feeling of "omg this shit again".

But after seeing it once, you can go in the second time with foreknowledge of how this Spider-Man is different and how he fits into the MCU. You don't have to concern yourself with trying to figure out what this version of Spider-Man's deal is since you already know, which for me helped to separate it from the previous films and enjoy it on its own merit.

I saw the second Steven Chow Journey to the West movie and it was pretty good. Not as good as the first one but fun if you want to kill 2 hours. If you haven't seen the first movie its on Netfilx still I think and I would recommend it. The director is the Kung Fu Hustle director and it has kind of the same feeling and some reoccurring elements but it's an old fairy tale that he took a lot of ideas for that movie from so I guess there's no avoiding that. It does have subtitles and I don't believe a dubbed version is available but it's not too hard to follow.

>After hearing multiple women in Hollywood share stories of sexual abuse by Harvey Weinstein, actor Terry Crews was moved to go public with his own tale of sexual assault from a powerful Hollywood figure. In a series of tweets Tuesday afternoon, Crews revealed that he was groped by an unnamed male executive at an industry party last year. Crews says he almost lashed out at the man, but stopped himself once he realized how it would be portrayed: “240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho.” After telling the man’s co-workers about what happened, he received an apology the next day; he let it go after that, out of fear of being ostracized in the industry. Now, Crews says he can empathize with what Weinstein’s alleged victims, as well as many others, went through: “Hollywood is not the only business where this happens, and to the casualties of this behavior — you are not alone.”

It's okay that you're retarded, but at least try to read. Crews didn't murder the guy because it was a powerful Hollywood executive that could get Crews blackballed from ever working in television or film again if he did anything. That's how this shit happens in Hollywood: powerful white fat fucks get carte blanche to do whatever they want because they have sycophants that will defend them and will do whatever they say.

If something like that happens in Hollywood, which it does all the time, there usually aint' shit you can do about it unless you never want to get a job again.
Which makes the whole ordeal even worse. Victims often feel powerless, especially Hollywood victims. It's gotta fuck with your head that you have to ignore it because you want to keep your career. Terry Crews has got cojones. And his case may not be as extreme as many women who have been raped and assaulted by big wig Hollywood fucks but I commend him for at least speaking out and making that gesture.

Binge-watched season 2 of Slasher. This might be one of the best pure slashers I've seen, which I guess it should be with a title like that. I can't think of many movies where so many of the deaths carry as much weight as they do throughout this series, and you really feel the horror. I also loved how it hooks you in right away letting you know that something awful happened, then keeps you questioning to the end exactly what happened, why, and who was really to blame. And of course how any of it relates to everyone getting brutally murdered left and right all of a sudden.

Been playing catchup on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mick, You're the Worst and Better Things. Good seasons so far for those four. Haven't heard much discussion about Better Things on here but it's a great show for Pamela Adlon and the show's honest and open exploration of themes like motherhood and dating. I was laughing pretty hard at the dinner scene with Robin, Sam and her kids and how awkward it was with her kids asking all those personal questions towards Robin.

I watched this tonight actually. I thought the film was fun as fuck though although I will concede that Debora's inclusion to give Baby a motive to going back into being a getaway driver and all he had was just his foster dad was kinda tacked on and not as developed as it could have been. But I at least thought Jamie Foxx and Jon Hamm were pretty good in their roles and Ansel Elgort's role as Baby reminded me of Ryan Gosling in Drive. Both characters similar in being quiet types who are really good drivers who both have girls they're involved with but one gets caught and keeps the girl (albeit in prison) but the other gets away and leaves the girl.

That opening to I think it was Ep4 where Sam's on a date with some guy she's not really into and she's just increasingly rude to him confused me because wow what a total bitch and those women agree with her like the viewer's supposed to too? No, fuck off. Leading that poor guy on isn't doing him any favours even if you do fuck him a few times. It jsut seemed out of character for her to be so shitty especially if we're supposed to empathise with her, at least, there was no obvious explanation for that happening, that whole mini-arc could have been cut from the show and it would have made more, not less, sense.

>so death created time to grow the things that it would kill

Dead City Radio (1990) Track 4 Ah Pook the Destroyer
>death needs time for what it kills to grow in

Here's an animated remix of that track if you're curious https://youtu.be/F3kz4AUHe1M?t=163

TD is great but it saddens me that they were so lazy about the stealing. Exacerbated by the fact that they seemed to deny it or stick their heads in the sand when questioned instead of making it a homage.

Watched all of Mindhunter, great psychological serial killer show, like Silence of the Lambs drawn out over 10 episodes.

Giving Ozark a try, 2 eps in and I'm not sure I can take Bateman trying to be an autistic Walter White but I'm gonna give it a few more episodes to see if it gets any better. The story itself seems to be pretty good so who knows.

Channel Zero: Candle Cove

A friend recommended this to me, A syfy show? Has to be shit, I thought. The premise sounded a little silly.


Turns out it's pretty well done, very fucking creepy so far and not really any jump scares. Definitely recommend this, can't vouch for the other seasons as I haven't seen them.

The visuals are great, the sound design is very low key and creepy. Can't remember the last horror-tv show I've seen that was this decent.

Lilyhammer is fantastic, and despite being a three way deal between Netflix, BBC and NRK, is technically Netflix's first original series.

If you like how The Orville is basically Star Trek TNG with unneeded comedy, that's what Lilyhammer is to The Sopranos and Northern Exposure.

But I think the comedy is integrated better into Lilyhammer, even though it turned a lot of people off with its weird mix of languages and themes.

Binge watching
>Star Trek discovery

I'm actually a big trek fan... Wouldn't go as far as to say I'm a Trekkie though.

I can't for the life of me get into discovery, there's just something about it that consistently puts me off every episode and it's probably most things already stated by people that wanted to like the show but couldn't.


Also like there's a big ass ship with possibly hundreds to a thousand living beings on it, how come all of a sudden the super secret top secret part just stops being a thing 4 episodes in.

Why is the ginger girl so cringe?
Why is Ricky from my so called life in the show?
Why are klingons such pussies ?
Why is the stalker vampire from True Blood a Vulcan?
How does the main character keep getting away with being such a fuckup and why would they let a person like that who's backstory is tantamount to being a red flag that she should be noplace in control of anything?

Watched Ingrid Goes West.

It was a good movie, i have mixed feelings about the ending though. So she tries to commit suicide and eventully gets exactly what she wants in the end? what kind of message does that send? post about your suicide online and people will pity follow you on instagram? the ending actually kind of ruins it a little for me. why couldnt she just end up with ice cube jr and not become famous? i mean i get it, be who you are and stop pretending, but when you tie that up with her trying to commit suicide it just sours the message

I think the final cut might have removed a bunch of stuff about her becoming one of the fake girls too. It's touched on at one or two points but could have been clearer, so her "coming clean" in the video was the thing, not the suicide. A few plot holes but a great film imo.

But yea Valerian to me at least is a really well done film considering it has a huge comic and cartoon lore and they managed to make the film standalone and open to a sequel or prequel.

I'm sure it looks great in high quality though; I watched a shit quality Avatar and the CGI looked like WoW, there's something about CGI that makes it look a million times worse if the definition you're watching it in sucks.

Watched the first two episodes of Mindhunter. It’s like True Detective season 1 meets Hannibal but with less violence and action aside from the opening hostage negotiation scene so far David Fincher’s directing, the expansive and intricately spoken dialogue and Holden and Bill with conflicting personalities working together similar to Rust and Marty makes for compelling and developed characters. It’s really good so far.

Watched the first two episodes that premiered on Sunday and this season they’re doing two stories with back to back episodes focusing on two stories instead of one, which makes sense given that Blunt Talk got cancelled and Ash vs. Evil Dead season 3 doesn’t premiere until February so Starz needed a show to fill its November and December void. I dunno if I’m gonna like Bria and Anna&Erica’s stories as much as Christine’s story from season 1 so it might end up being like True Detective season 2 all over again but I guess I’ll see where it goes. The sex scenes in the first episode were pretty graphic especially when Max was deep throating Anna.

It makes it much worse because the entire movie, people are saying "yo Valerian, that shit's forbidden. I order you not to do it." and he basically gives them the finger and says he's gonna do what he wants. Then in the last act he has that duty-vs-morality struggle shoehorned in.

It is an impressive movie visually. The universe is interresting and fun to look at, but it's Spy Kids tier writing. A shame they wasted that budget and conceptual space on such a bad script.

I didn't mind the ending but Mindhunter overall was fanfuckingtastic. Definitely one of my favorite new dramas this year. Season 2 is supposed to focus on the Atlanta child murders according to Fincher. Holden Ford is an interesting character, would like to see him and Will Graham team up to find and interview serial killers.

Loved it. The entire time it reminded me of LA Noir (video game) so much that I think the makers had to have drawn inspiration ( especially the scene where that curly haired twig boy broke down and cried after offering them doughnuts, that was like a scene that could have been in the game to a T. ) which I love.

It's a beautifully shot show that knows how to do crime drama well.

On the subject of crime drama, I recently started rewatching Southland. It's a police procedural with heart and gallows humor. A single episode can have you laughing one moment and immediately switch gears to full on suspense. The writing is sharp and the cast is perfect. Some of the casting choices feel weird at first but before you know it you relate with every character.

Probably the closest LA will ever get to The Wire.

Just watched Unforgiven. I've seen it before but it was so long ago I forgot the film. It wasn't the best, but I watched the whole thing. The story is simple, and doesn't veer wildly into bullshit. I liked that. I'd say my favorite parts of the movie are When he blows away that whore monger owner of the saloon for being a loudmouth who didn't really give a fuck about his girls anyway, only money. and when the sheriff gave his short dialogue about how the assassin was just a piece of shit who'd killed women and children, and didn't give a fuck about it. And Clints character just says yup. I've done that shit. I've killed women and children. And now I'm going to kill you. Because of what you've done to my friend.. Really fixes his character to the ground in a way that he just isn't until then. Until then he seems soft. Except for when we got hints of his ways like when he shot that kid for the money when his associates couldn't. and when he took the killin job in the first place.

Unforgiven is an amazing movie and i love it and im going to ramble on about some of your points. I am highly biased in favour of it, i even own the soundtrack on cd.

The genius of the movie is you never actually know what their backstory actually is what is lie and what is truth. They use a lot of "fear" tactics in the movie and they display this via english bob who is an absolute bullshitter but people believe the rumours and so he perpetuates them, until he meets little bill who is like "you're full of shit". So i sometimes feel that, that is the case with Will Munney with his stories about killing of women and children. I mean he even uses it himself when hes leaving the town at the end and he is yelling "dont any of you sons of bitches shoot shoot me or ill kill your whole family and burn your house down" he is clearly just threatening with no intention, he just wants to get out alive, but they comply because A) he just killed a bunch of people even though he let a whole bunch escape and B) the rumours of who he was spread across town.

we never actually find out what he actually did, just that he has nightmares about what he has done and that Neds native american wife doesnt like him for what he did.

ive never figured out if the gun jamming was on purpose to misdirect of it was an actual misfire and he had to quickly find a new way out.

The way that they framed Munney in the film, how they made him appear until the end i think was brilliant. they frame him as this reformed man who doesnt kill anymore and wont sleep with whores because of his... wife, then bam thats what you get for decorating your saloon with my friend.

The actual "hero" of the film is little bill, who is just trying to protect his town from bounty hunters. but you dont root for little bill because of how the movie is framed. you even see the shoot out scene from wills perspective.


Anyways, i love unforgiven (as ive mentioned), so im sorry for rambling. there is a lot of underlying commentary in the movie i think but maybe im just looking for things.

I dunno, i felt it was a story about how good and bad is a perspective thing. but also that no matter how much you try to change you are really still that person deep down inside.

Great insights.

The gun jamming. I think that was accidental. This is a film fairly grounded in reality. If he pulled that, it'd be stupid. He already has one barrel on little bill and was ready to die or fight after that BOOM. But when the boom didn't come, he stayed cool. Just like little bill said to the writer. It's not who's fastest, it's who's most calm, that will come out alive. And because of that particular echo during the misfire and cool head reaction, I believe it really was an accident, and in that moment we saw who was the cooler man, who was the steely man. This movie isn't about who's good and who's bad. It's a movie about who's hard and who's soft.

Another interesting thing that struck me was, like you said, This is a film about bullshitters. You don't know who anybody is, or what they're about. Your expectations are subverted. The men you expect to be hard, by their demeanor, are soft, and the ones who seem timid, are hard. But here's what also struck me, just something I thought was strange and I don't know why. Throughout the movie the assassins are lead to believe the woman they are taking a job on the behalf of has had her eyes gouged out, her ears cut off, her tits cut off, her fingertips cut off. The brutality of the act is presented in such a was as to have us the viewer believe it played a part in the acception of the job. Now fast forward to 2/3 through the movie, when Clint meets the whore for the first time. He says you must be the one they cut up. And that's all he says. Doesn't comment on the fact he was lied to, at all. Doesn't bring it up. Not then or ever. It is never addressed. I don't know what this means in the metastory but I do believe it means something. It's too big a detail. There's a reason he didn't get mad, or confront any of them, or make a statement, or talk with his peers, or anything. He just...let it go. There's something to that and I don't know what or why.

>The Girlfriend Experience s02e03 & 4 - Eggshells & The List

This season's been slow out of the gate so far but this show has a long burn with plenty of sex scenes in between the character and story building especially now that Anna and Erica have become romantically involved and Bria is escorting on the side while trying to stay in witness protection. I am surprised to see Harmony Korine is on the show this season.

It's kind of sad that at this point, the only worthwhile aspect of The SimpleSons is the couch gag.

Simpson's is like your friend's dog that's been around ever since you were little kids and was an awesome companion, but now you're in your 20s and he's somehow still kickin', old and crusty, skinny, possibly in a bit of pain, in this limbo state where he's frail enough that you consider putting him down, but spry enough that it feels cruel to do so, and at this point it feels like hes been old forever. Youre still happy to see your old pal when he's around, but also a bit depressed to see he's fallen to such a state. And you're starting to feel like the old tank is gonna keep going until his body literally disintegrates.

And that's probably how the Simpson's will end. When enough of the voice actors kick the bucket that the show literally can't go on anymore. I can't imagine them just trying to replace those main dude's who voice like 400 characters each...

Im one of the people who likes the new simpsons. i just wish some of the couch gag creativity would blend into the actual show, its what it needs it need an injection of creativity.

I have enjoyed a few episodes this season. Just this weeks episode of revisiting pin pals and flat jokes about money and millionaries was just so bad, how this idea even came to be made into the show is beyond me.

Like out of the 7 episodes released so far about 5 of them have actually been alright, sure they dont live up to their former glory but once you get out of that mindset they are pretty good. This weeks however was not good.

After months of trying to hold out until I can get enough spare cash together to reactivate my 4K video quality Netflix package (which I think also can do 60fps, right? It's been quite a while now), I've finally caved and decided to just watch at least some of the shows I've held off on so far, via my friends account. Despite him having the mid-tier 1080p package (I'm just really trying to make full use of this nice 4K TV is all).

So tonight I've watched quite a few things on Netflix, as I can head to school tomorrow whenever it suits me, I have no new video games left to play through, my articles are all ready to print, I've applied to all the places I've seen around with help wanted signs, and I got two sacks of quality drugs and also some ganja. The time is just right!

First off: >Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton
This was a neat, interesting little documentary on the bizarre antics of Jim Carrey on the set of Man on the Moon. Once he secured the role, Jim went overboard on the method acting, basically believing that Andy Kauffman had literally taken over his body to do the film. So he actually got Kauffman's former girlfriend to document the production of the film. Apparently, Universal backed out of using the footage to promote the film because they didn't want audiences to "think Jim Carey was an asshole" (allegedly their exact words). It's mostly Jim Carey running around as Andy Kauffman or Tony Clifton, acting like a complete lunatic who is impossible to work with. This footage is intercut with 2017 Jim Carey in a room telling the camera all about the crazy shit that went down, but also surprisingly talking a lot about his own life, childhood, career, etc. And of course he throws in the usual nonsense philosophy he's adopted as of late, sounding like a 16 year old who just discovered psychedelics as usual. There was a concerning moment at the very end though. As Jim reflects on how freeing it was to literally take a vacation from himself and become a completely different person (and the subsequent struggle to remember who you really are once the vacation is over) he openly wonders if it'd be fun to do that again and "Just completely become Jesus Christ" (or something to that effect). With the way Jim acts these days and his giant beard, that's just a particularly creepy thing to hear from him is all.

>Jerry Before Seinfeld
Its Jerry Seinfeld returning to the comedy club that he started his career in, doing a full hour of stand-up, reusing a lot of the material he'd use back in the 70s and 80s. It's intercut with a bit of Jerry's life story (but only covering the pre-Seinfeld era of his life). I think it's great, but if you don't like stand-up you probably won't enjoy this. But it really is well crafted stand-up by one of the very best. Perfect delivery, timing, etc. I always love seeing folks with a "high comedy IQ" do stand-up.

>The Punisher, episode 1
Slow, but sets a promising overall tone. Very hateable antagonists, some brutal death sequences so far. I already know exactly what flaws to expect (because all Marvel Netflix shows have the same ones) as well. I'm sure the mid season slump will be a drag but I hear the finale is the best of Netflix Marvel yet.

>Defenders, episode 6
Finally picking this up again. I love comic book shit, so this is all right in my wheelhouse, but damn the plotline really is some overly convoluted nonsense. And Iron Fist is still as useless as ever. I swear it's as if he went in that cave and got the power of the Iron Fist by *accident* through a series of slapstick comedy gags. They finally killed off a character I've been expecting to die since waaaay before Defenders dropped. Also I seriously have to call bullshit. Luke Cage is an unstoppable, indestructible beast with unbreakable skin and bones, etc. The man can take a she'll fired by a tank point blank to the face and walk away clean...but super awesome kung-fu lady Elektra can just deliver a super special kung fu kick to the super special spot of Cage's face that just immediately knocks him out cold?? Nuh-uh. That is a load of bullshit. You can't spend 4 shows building these characters up to be these badasses, and then just portray them as a bunch of incompetent, easily subdued wimps when you finally get to the big team-up crossover. It ain't right!

Been watching big mouth, a cartoon about kids in the beginning of puberty. up to about episode 7 and i dunno i think im kind of done with it? i hate to sound anti-semetic but its just a tad too jewish for me and the whole children talking about sex all the time is kind of beginning to disturb me. i thought it was cute in the beginning but now its kind of like wait what?

I mean it has its moments like when one of the kids fucks a pillow and gets it pregnant and the pillow human hybrid is actually his brothers not his was pretty good but yeah i dunno.

anyone else seen it? thoughts?

All he wanted was a hug :'(

But no, really, to me this scene symbolized The protagonist realizing he's gotten to close to the bug, the insect, the demon, the serial killer. The thing itself snears to him as it readies for a [%]hug, a symbol of companionship and kinship. This was too much for Holden, and he bolted. Having finally faced the realization of what has been happening to him from his exposure to these guys. I think in the next season we'll either see him go full vulcan, and start conducting himself properly but still mind fucking the guys into oblivion, or he's going to go even deeper into grey-morals territory.

The thing about the jewish-ness is understandable, although i think it's only one character that has their jewish heritage overtly brought up. But i get what you're saying and kind of agree--it feels like there's some characterizations are overtly 'jewish archetypes' which can feel kind of forced and alienating.
I agree with what was posted earlier here on /mtv/, that it's a pretty thoughtful take on puberty. It's got a sex-positive message despite none of the underage characters actually having sex with one another, thankfully but i think i kind of understand what you're saying? If i'm reading you right about your uneasiness, and it makes you uncomfortable, try looking at it this way: while they do sexualize the adolescent characters, they don't eroticize them. The subject is brought up in a humourous or matter-of-fact way, but none of it is pornographic imo--that is, meant to turn on the audience. Is that what you meant by disturbing?

Yeah, i think its one of those shows that they aim it at adults but expect kids to see it, kind of like south park, even though its 15+ and plays late at night, kinds still watch it. which is why this show has loads of fucks and gross out humour in it because kids love that apparently.

Im going to say its definitely not for adults and definitely for teenagers.

not that its a bad show, i can definitely see its merits but yeah, i think ill give the rest of the show a miss.

mindhunter spoilers
i agree with what the scene symbolized, but there's no way Kemper only wanted a hug, he knew what he was doing. Dude faked a suicide attempt to lure the guy into a secluded spot so he could terrorize him. I'm guessing Kemper didn;t even know if he was gonna kill the guy or not, just wanted to recapture the feeling of having someone in his web. Then, as Pesk once said 'it wasn't their night", our protagonist gets the opposite diagnosis, it is his night, and Kemper didn't bother stopping him from his terrified flight. But yes, his breakdown in the halls was more about the realizations of who he's becoming and how he feels so at ease around freaks that he just casually strolled into a serial killer trap than just being scared. Maybe he realizes Kemper let him go because he saw a kindred spirit.

So I watched Valeria the other night. And while serviceable it is not Luc Bessons best work. He's directed the fifth Element, and leon the professional among others. One thing that was sorely missing was an Eric Serra soundtrack. He composed the music for at least the fifth element and The professional. I don't know why he wasn't used for this but the movie absolutely suffered for it. Alaxandre Desplats score was way too bland.

Ugh i gotta stop getting high on uppers and spewing out walls of text...

Jim & Andy really was entertaining though. And I recently got access to another friend's Netflix, which has the ability to stream in 4K. And after watching the last 3 episodes of Defenders in 1080p, and then again later in 4K...there is no comparison. It's not even close. 4K resolution is the fucking tits!

By the way, fucking why does Netflix Marvel hate superhero costumes?!? Fucking seriously, Daredevil didn't get his outfit until the finale of season 1, barely wears it in season 2 and STI'LL doesn't have his completed weaponry (walking stick that converts into billy clubs/escrima sticks, nunchucks, grappling hook, staff), Elektra didn't get her outfit till the end of season 2 and never wears it after, Luke Cage made a gag out of his original outfit and wears a severely toned down outfit with minor yellow trim instead of his trademark yellow shirt (I was seriously hoping the last episode of Luke Cage would feature him stumbling on on one of Cottonmouth's counterfeit clothing warehouses that was FILLED with blue jeans and blank yellow t-shirts lol), Iron Fist doesn't even wear some kind of contemporary version of his admittedly flamboyant outfit, not even a variationof at least his fucking mask! And now I'm watching Punisher. He didn't don his fucking white skull until the final episode of Daredevil season 2, then after HEAVILY using the skull to market the show and using it in the title card, HE FUCKING BURNS HIS PUNISHER OUTFIT IN THE GODDAMN OPENING OF EPUSODE 1 AND GOES UNDERGROUND! Then he doesn't finally bring back the fucking white skull until EPISODE GODDAMN 11!

Does Netflix wanna make shows about comic book characters or fucking not? Because they insist on everybody wearing normal street clothes 95% of the time. Maybe that's why they won't do Moon Knight. They'd have no choice but to have him wear his costume while super-heroing for the entire series.

By the way...Iron Fist. What the fuck have they done to this character? Theyve completely mangled him! He's a completely useless fucking moron who is constantly getting his ass kicked physically and mentally, spiritually and tactically.

He's supposed to be the greatest martial artist in the Marvel universe, but here he's constantly getting his was handed to him. Not to mention how he almost NEVER USES THE POWER OF THE IRON FIST! You know...his god damn main weapon??? They treat it like this fucking super special secret move that only is available for a limited time and can only be used a maximum of once every 2 or 3 episodes! Not to mention how much of a bumbling fucking moron he is, who has no idea how real life works and is the goddamn damsel in distress for the Defenders! In that show, fucking CLAIRE TEMPLE, Rosario Dawson, was more competent and useful than him. And every time he tries to look tough/intimidating and says "I'm leaving! Out of the way, you cannot defeat me!" he pretty much immediately gets knocked on his ass and the shit beaten out of him, and sometimes almost killed but then spared by his would-be killer's boss. It's almost like he was the village idiot and custodian of K'un Lun, cleaning up after and fetching things for the real martial artists. But then he accidentally stumbled and bumbled into the dragons cave and, through a series of ridiculous old timey slapstick comedy bits, accidentally became the next Iron Fist. That is the only believable way this useless dunce attained this power. It's ridiculous. He comes off like your douchebag roommate who thinks he's a zen-master because he likes incense and tried tai-chi for like a week. There's actually a scene where this douche comes up to Coleen and, knowing she speaks English perfectly fine and probably even prefers it, starts talking at her in fucking broken ass Mandarin.

Anyway, one last stray thought. After the Defenders finale....FUCK YEAH, THE BADASS PRIVATE INVESTIGATIOR VERSION OF MISTY KNIGHT COMPLETE WITH HARASS BIONIC ARM IS INCOMING!!!!!

I'm slightly confused by Mad Men. There was a whole thing in S5 where it seemed obvious that Ginsberg was implied to be the murderer that the episode riffs on; he won't look at the photos but has a really vivid description of chasing a girl down a dark alleyway, but more importantly there's a police sketch in the paper of the murderer and it's just a drawing of his face. But nothing comes of it. I finished the season and it hasn't been mentioned again. I haven't seen all of S6 or 7 but nothing on the internet mentions it.

That was really, really fucked up. I went and grabbed some cereal halfway through, and then halfway through the bowl of cereal I realized I was calmly eating cereal while watching some crazy bitch throw graphic, gorey dead fetuses in the river, wtf is wrong with me??
The name of this episode is quite fitting because it left a pretty intense imprint on my mind. I watched it late at night last night and had to watch something more light hearted before I could even consider going to sleep.
I've only seen a few Takashi Miike movies, but I'm fairly familiar with his work, and this episode was very true to form. Nightmarish, maddening, surreal and ultra dark. There was a couple times where I considered tapping out and watching something else but I somehow made it through that.
Highly recommend.

I just finished season 1 of Riverdale, and it's surprisingly good. It's CW so it's got its fair share of teen angst and melodrama (which I find hilarious), but all of the young actors kill it, especially considering it's their first role for most of them. Also, the soundtrack is dope.

I read they're planning a spinoff/reboot of Sabrina too which could be interesting.

Yeah I remember a thread about Masters of Horror like maybe a year ago? Or maybe it was just about anthology series. Anyways, I only ended up watching "Incident on and off a Country Road" then forgot, but finally got back around to it. I found imprint because I looked up a list of best masters of horror episodes, but I'm glad to hear that they're all good.

I also found a Masters of Sci Fi series created by the same people but sadly it looks like it didn't do as well and only got 6 episodes, of which I think only 4 aired. I can't find any streams of them. Someone should try this again since sci fi is having a bit of a big comeback in tv. There's that PKD anthology which I enjoyed but I'd like to see something with a bunch of different content creators. Also Black Mirror is great but still I think we need more sci fi anthology. Or what would be perfect is a sci fi horror anthology lol. Shit like Event Horizon in every episode. Sci fi horror when done right is the best genre.

>Masters of Horror: Homecoming
This episode was fuckin excellent. The humor was so on point, and the satire was great. I can only imagine how awesome it would have been to watch this when it came out. It was just straight up calling out Bush and all his war cronies. Pretty beautiful, kudos to the creators for being so bold. It's not that criticizing stuff like that is bold, but to go full on intense satire like they did kinda is.
I fuckin loved Picardo in this. Any time I see him, I know whatever it is that I'm watching is gonna be excellent. He may not get a lot of starring roles, but he always fits into the role like a glove and plays it 100%.

Yeah it's quite campy, a symptom of being made in the 90s I guess.

Here are a few I enjoyed
The New Breed
Summit
Tempests
Final Exam
After Life
Corner of the Eye
Dead Man Switch

Most episodes are straightforward enough that you'll know whether you'll dig them or not after the first few minutes. TBH most of the time the twist ending is what makes this series entertaining, even though you can sometimes see it from a mile away.

And yeah there are tons of "cameo" roles from actors of other (sci-fi) shows, especially Star Trek. I think like 80% of the crew from TNG and DS9 make an appearance.

Anyways, I don't remember much just one scene maybe but there's a guy in a hospital bed, and there are people doing surgery on him. And he's got this cube cage around his head, and he takes it off and he's got an ugly ass cube shaped deformed head, and the doctors/nurses are commenting on how great he looks. And the guy in the bed next to him has just a regular human face and everyone reacts in horror to his perceived disgusting face. Does that ring a bell to you?

Rewatching Lie To Me S1. There's no real plot, most of the extras are terrible actors and the characters are pretty simple stock characters but I do like that it has actual science involved in a way that the viewer can genuinely learn from. I've read a lot of Ekman's books and played with his learning programs but the show (for the first season or two at least) is great for contextualising the microexpressions in a way neither the books nor software can.

Just watched the first episode of Amazon's The Tick to test out the 4K HDR on my new set. I never watched the Warburton Tick so I can't compare it to that, but I used to watch the cartoon on Fox Kids all the time as a kid. I don't really like it after one episode, it seems stuck in the middle between trying to be a gritty, grounded superhero origin story and the oddball comedy the cartoon was. The superfluous violence was weird, too. It's only 6 episodes long so I guess I'll finish it. Here's hoping the comedy writing is improved and focused on as the season goes on.

There's that, but also just the general way it's shot (cinematography and directing). Is this what the Netflix Marvel shows look like? I couldn't figure out why it looked like a police procedural half the time.

Watched the first 3 eps of American Vandal last night. Pretty funny show aping the true crime tone of stuff like Serial (amongst a billion others I'm sure) with a story about mostly petty high school drama (literally) so far.

Seems like a good show so far. Apparently I get Netflix free with my phone service now so I'm working my way through the stuff they have that I haven't already downloaded. Probably going to watch Punisher at some point and that other series based on the other work of the author of Handmaid's Tale that I can't remember the name of.

Curb finale was alright, not as funny as other eps this season. The final scene was too obvious and I was expecting more. Should have shown Larry getting brutally murdered on the off chance its the final episode of all time. If they ever make another season, just act like it didn't happen or was a dream.

I'll have to finish it because from the first half that I saw, I really liked the way that it doesn't just outright romanticize the shit out of the period, turning it into a fantasy story.

It was total ass, how is this getting such good reviews? 30 minutes too long, terribly paced, the son couldn't act for shit, poor dialog. Random, disjointed scenes that could have just been cut, and plus it just felt like it was trying too hard. Waste of time imo, overall it just felt amateurish.

It's definitely less artsy this season. Some of the writing is reeeaaaalllly bad though.

But if you were able to deal with some of the bad writing of S1, you should be able to manage. It has some moments and episodes that are good.

just saw the trailer for Alita: Battle Angel. They must have been obsessed with the main character accurate to the comics and just CGI'd her face lol. She's got these ridiculous anime eyes and everybody else is just a regular real life human. It's uncanny valley as fuck when you see her with other people. also the visual direction in general just looks too generic and cheap compared to the source material, even if it seems they're trying to keep things more or less accurate, just with some stuff from the ova added in. and while fairly accurate, they change the dialogue juuuuust enough to feel more generically hollywood, and the acting doesn't help. the interactions between alita and the love interest were really awkward in particular. This is looking to be pretty forgettable, though not outright terrible. Which is still unfortunate considering this is a passion project for cameron.

Been thinking about picking up that new chris noth show gone. anyone know if its any good? i love him as an actor so im considering just watching it anyway.

I enjoyed this and last weeks episodes of the simpsons. i enjoyed last weeks more. But they keep referencing old episodes, this week was bob and the rakes, last week was lisa its your birthday, the week before was pin pals, i wonder if they are doing it for a nostalgia kick, trying to re-capture laughs that have long been exhausted or something else. i find it quite strange and it doesnt tickle the nostalgia button because the simpsons doesnt affect nostalgia because of its constant repeats and re-running over gags.

Family guy was alright two, wasnt happy with the way the brian arc ended last week, the christmas episode was pretty mediocre. i enjoyed the last two episodes of the simpsons more than family guy and i dont think that has ever been the case or atleast rarely is.

I watched the season finales of Better Things and You're the Worst, both of which I enjoyed. Also got caught up The Mick, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Bob's Burgers, This Is Us and The Girlfriend Experience, which is a show I think more people should check out.

Recently a friend got me into Sherlock and I watched the first episode of series 3 last night with the fallout of Moriarity's suicide and Sherlock's fake suicide. I think Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman do a good job playing Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson but did they really have to portray Sherlock as having an autistic savant-type personality?

The point here is that Madani doesn't act, think or feel like an afghani woman and pointing out that she is will only upset who actually are. It's important to bring in people from other Ethnicities to write characters that are believable and fans can relate to. Ms.Marvel is well received because it has a writer that understand the challenges of trying to adapt to a new place without abandoning what makes you who you are. It's so popular with the muslim community in fact that it actually is sold in the middle east with an arabic translation. All im getting from Madani is “i am an american, hear me Roar!” which feels like a lot of wasted potential and can get on a lot of people's nerves.

Stargate Atlantis

This show has no business being so decent. The characters mostly suck dick compared to SG-1 but I'm still finding it very fun and engaging. I guess they just had years of SG-1 seasons to nail the formula down right so that's why it's still good. Also, I love Mckay. I fuckin hated him in SG-1, which I'm sure everyone else did too, but he's probably my favorite on Atlantis.
the episode that the doctor died really fucked me up. I think it was more saddening than the episode where the doctor died in SG-1. Both were very sudden.
I do like shows that take risks with their characters like that. Because it keeps the show and universe in line. You know that even though they're risking their lives everyday and almost every episode it just resets at the end, it feels more real because people actually do get hurt. But I do really miss that dude. He was basically Scotty from Star Trek but as a doctor.

"Documentary" film about a little girls preparation to join the Korean Children's Union (aka Kim Youth). The script was provided to the director by the North Korean government, which he proceeded to shoot. He also shot a lot of the behind-the-scenes rehearsals and direction by the government officials.

This is a darkly honest doc. Both times I've watched it have left me an emotional wreck.

Been watching Mindhunter, I really like the pace and premise of the show, but the morbid imagery is kinda bothering me. I mean, I get that you can't make a show about serial killers and pretend it isn't going to be graphic, but it's just so typical 2017 Murder Porn at it's worst.
Didn't annoy me nearly as much as when that fucking tool just forgave his bohemian girlfriend after she fucked around behind his back, like nothing happened. I would break her nose, and he just doesn't give a fuck, and then she breaks up with him? man he must have the biggest dick in the world or be Jesus incarnate, cuz that would flip my lid more that listening to serial killers circlejerk over murders. Also, that spineless fucking fed.. Jesus.

Other than that, I'd say that the first season peaked around episode 5-6, some really cool shit going on and that the last two scenes were especially cool. The soundtrack was also fucking awesome.

All in all, I'd totally recommend it

Watched season 2 of Easy. The first episode was pretty funny and I liked how it showed how the paranoia of a package thief tested each neighbors’ friendships and relationships. And Aubrey Plaza and Joe Lo Truglio were in it so that’s a plus and ended up being my 2nd favorite episode. I think my favorite episode overall was episode 6 because I liked the concept of the episode for how Grace used religion as a way to punish her parents for making her go to church only to embrace it and give back to her community. As an anthology series, I really like it and it does remind me of High Maintenence with the stories being intertwined through one thing, which in this show is the love and relationships between people.

>Sherlock s04e03 - The Final Problem

I thought this was the best episode of the series although it did feel like it was going into Hannibal territory with Eurus playing mind games with Sherlock, Mycroft and John killing people in front of them. Probably gonna be a while till series 5 premieres but the show isn’t half bad if not for Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s acting and chemistry.

>The Girlfriend Experience s02e11 & 12 - Making Amends & Citizens First

Speaking of anthology series, season 2 of TGE has felt like True Detective season 2 where it’s just not as good and intriguing as the first. Christine’s story in season 1 was much better than Erica & Anna and Bria’s stories have been, not to mention that the escorting in this season plays a much more secondary role. I’m interested to see the season finale and how it wraps up both stories but I’m not getting my hopes up.

>Brooklyn Nine-Nine s05e10 & 11 - Game Night & The Favor

I’m glad to see that Gina’s back. And I thought they handled Rosa coming out as bisexual the way that I expected them to, with humor and emotional depth that she showed in this episode with being upset with her parents. And it looks like that the next half of the season set up Seamus trying to get revenge on Holt and the 99.

It’s my favorite new Netflix show but the show wasn’t that graphic other than the opening scene with the hostage taker killing himself in front of Holden unless you meant the descriptions. Having David Fincher involved with the show certainly helped.

You got that right and as a dramedy, it’s a beautifully shot and written show. Same with the soundtrack.

I wouldn't say it's just another anime, Watanabe (if that's how you say it) is god tier. It may not be for everyone but it's basically wacky sci-fi with this sort of funk/ acid jazz influence. I like that about Dandy, Shamploo and Bebop, they all are attached to a certain musical genre.

I bet this movie was really cheap to make but the visuals were still really effective. great soundtrack too, clangy oldschool industrial really fits. I was already into the composer before I saw this movie, and it's why I finally did. good creatively insane shit 5 drill dicks out of 5. The sequels look interesting too, there's a gradual introduction of color and the soundtrack stays good. I saw this weird mtv japan spot the director did with nine inch nails too, it's basically just a mini tetsuo movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YK5XgMjORHc

watching Bright on Netflix (taking my time, could take days it so bs) It cost 90 million to make? It has a familiarity in feel to Suicide Squad. There was a scene at the start with Will Smith with his wife watching a Joe Rogan experience podcast on a laptop about the mythical creatures. From that moment I knew we had some real scrip writing going on.

It's very ok... that'd be the best way to put it.

It's not as out there as some other Max Landis scripts. It's good at setting up the urban fantasy (basically Shadowrun without the cyberpunk) world as a whole but it certainly feels like the first in a series of movies. There's exposition for lots of things that you never get to see or is brought up ever again, which is disappointing because those little bits of lore and mystery are the only thing that stand out. The plot is fairly cookie cutter. Also you don't get to see much magic in it, usually just the aftermath of spells and stuff but boy does it look pretty cool.

I only watched it because urban fantasy as a genre has some awesome stories but it's tragically underrepresented in film and TV.

It's what you'd expect from a movie going straight to netflix. It looks fine, the plot is functional, it's only huge flaw is that the buddy cop dynamic never works. I don't know if Smith is suppose to be racist but not as racist as everyone else, I don't know if the Orc is supposed to be stupid, naive, friendly, awkward or depressed. There's some stuff that's not really explained, which I welcome, not enough movies let you put stuff together in your head, but we're talking real basic stuff.

I'm sure the movie is all types of problematic if you try and project a real life discriminated group onto the Orcs, and maybe it could of been handled with more care. But I don't think Landis or Ayer think in terms of metaphor. Where in LOTRs the Orcs most certainly meant to represent the enemies of Christendom, in Bright they're just a species.

Tolkein disliked allegory in all its forms and never wrote anything that was meant to directly map onto real life events. He says he prefers history, real or imagined, and allowing people to draw their own conclusions and connections. This is all in the introduction to LOTR.

He did believe in the fundamental truth of Christianity, and believed that people found Christian themes in his work because they were internally consistent and consistent with aspects of our reality, same as Christianity, so some truths and themes will be found again and again in quality work. He was bros with C.S Lewis but found his heavy handed allegory pretty off-putting.

His views do come through in his work though, especially stuff like his negative view on industrialisation, as seen in the scenes of the shire getting fucked over in the books and in all the Isengard/Ent industrial stuff in the films.

I've not watched bright, but it looks pretty mediocre from trailers.

I don't get what you mean by "this is what happens".

I'm pretty sure none of these women were out jogging everyday and eating healthy then saw a fat D-list Aussie lady on TV and decided to balloon up in an attempt to jump on the bandwagon. If you mean they go do see terrible cash grabs marketed to them I'm sure that's the point of the movie industry, to pander to people enough to get them to throw their money at you. It puts money in your pocket, what are you so butt hurt over?

I hope they all get too fat for the seats and quit coming in and they have to lay someone off to make up for the lost revenue and your boss tells you they have to let you go because they aren't getting the fat money anymore.

So I watched Bright.

I really enjoyed it. It was refreshing; you don't see movie studios taking chances on concepts like this anymore. Basically doing Shadowrun the movie is a really badass concept that is extremely difficult to pull of. And I wouldn't say that it was pulled off perfectly but it was done well and it was really fun. I hope they continue the saga because we could have used a lot more world building but it was foregone in favor of character building. We only have a general idea of the history.

My only real criticism is with the elf girl. She didn't seem to pull it off so well as the other elves. There was a bit of a Leeloo feel to her but it just didn't work quite as well. She occasionally stood out from the rest of the movie where everything else seemed to work well.

I put off watching this show for quite a while considering how sad and terrible season 6 was, but I'm really enjoying this season. It's pretty hilarious. The political satire stuff is on point and pretty fuckin funny. It's not quite as scary or compelling as some of the other, better seasons, but it makes up for it in the political satire. They made a great choice going with the Cult idea when they did, it works brilliantly and it plays off the extremes of both sides quite well.
So far 7/10, a lot better than my expectations.

Also loved it. It spoke to the part of me that liked really old South Park from before they were advocating in favor of specific parties and would slam both sides just as hard. I've always preferred art that says "everyone is stupid" rather than "everyone who disagrees with me is stupid". I mean, I have political leanings, but I don't like shows/films that preach values at me, even ones I also share. It's far funner when characters are literally killing each other over voting for Jill Stein.

lol the end scene, I already dislike Chibnal as a writer. If he pulls some shit where the Doctor is stranded on Earth for longer than one episode, I'm rioting. I hated it when the 3rd Doctor did it and again when Moffat did it with Capaldi on Earth with the Mistress, even if he met the cool Bill Potts through it. Um, was the TSRDIS giving him the boot for being a girl? Not 'sexy' enough for the TSARDIS's tastes? As for the actual episode, man I was crying happy-tears pretty much the whole episode. This reinforced my opinion that Last Jedi wasn't so good, you;d think seeing Luke back after all these years would have given me nostalgic happy-tears like seeing Bradley pretend to be the 1st Doctor did for me. Maybe this episode is what you call 'fan service", if that's the case, Star Wars could honestly use a dash more of it then rather than treat the old characters like brand new characters virtually nothing like their original counterparts. Especially loved Old Man Doctor being a sexist and wanting Bill to dust. I don't recall the real 1st Doctor being sexist, just extremely racist towards the human species as a whole. I got major feels when 1 was telling Bill how sick the universe is and that the idea of someone who fixes all its problems is bullshit. IDK thanks Moffat for giving us this ep instead of some convoluted attempt at making your run more moffucked than it already was. Quiet and introspective, a reflection on the series and his time and place in it.

Finally watched Blade Runner 2049 also.

I thought it was really good. I liked all of the performances and it did a decent job of capturing that world albeit with what felt like a lot less time spent in the urban environment compared to the original. It's a 2 and a half hour movie and I wasn't bored at any part of it so that has to count for something. Good sound design, atmosphere, all that stuff, it's obvious Villineuve knows how to direct this type of film well. And of course he's done it a bunch of times now, but the Goose was also a perfect choice to play a machine-like dude. The only thing I'm conflicted about is how they left it open for a possible sequel at the end by not tying up the "Wallace wants replicants that can procreate" narrative, but that's only me thinking about cynical capitalism, of course I would like to see a sequel to this film so why am I complaining.

Yeah, good movie. Not sure what all the griping is about.

Blade Runner 2049 is definitely one of those rare sequels that are comparable and arguably superior to the original.
I feel like it successfully imitates the spirit (neo-noir) of the original, and expands on the world.

Minor gripes though:
The visual atmosphere of the cityscape is somewhat different (with noticeable use of cgi)--i know the snow was explained from the eco-disasters, but it felt a little off
how could they include appearances from Harrison Ford, and Olmos, but leave out Sean Young? Yes, the plot doesn't require her to age, but even if it were shoehorned in (using the older sean young instead of a younger version to match ford), i wouldn't have minded it

All in all, it's a good movie. I recommend it, provided you're OK with a somewhat slower-paced movie.

You are assuming that the sort of person that comments on RT is representative of movie-goers as a whole, you are assuming that the user review score is not being skewed by sock puppet accounts, and you are assuming that random anonymous internet commentators are inherently more honest than professional writers who have reputations and careers to worry about.

There is no good reason to assume any of those.

Arrival is an awesome sci-fi movie that sort of shits all over the stupid tropes Hollywood throws out. Female protagonist with no action-heroey shit going on...actual character depth....99% of the movie is just talking or trying to talk. The effects are good, but subtle. Nothing goes "PEW PEW!"

And it all fucking works better than the dreck Hollywood throws at us constantly.
