Watching this show called Legion, i think its like an xman show because of mutants and the title has like the xman symbol.

But its actually pretty alright, upto the fifth episode, it actually quite good.

Also been watching hotel hell, man i fucking love Gordan Ramsey i love kitchen nightmares but never got around to watching hotel hell, he is so ruthless.

Finished the final season of Longmire. Overall the season was alright but I don’t know if I really liked the finale even if it wrapped a lot of stuff up neatly and Vic and Walt hooking up was apparently in the books. I always saw Walt more as a father figure to Vic so it was really awkward seeing them hook up. I also felt like the portrayal of the Native American community was kinda mean spirited although the actors for Henry, Jacob and Mathias do a good job on the show.

I also went to a Q&A panel last night with Phil Moore, who used to host Nick Arcade, he’s a really funny dude and had some great stories to tell about hosting the show and working for Nick back in the 90s.

This show is weird as hell. Internet people call it a black comedy version of Black Mirror, I can't think of any other way to put it. I just watched s1e2 and it essentially no dialogue yet the whole episode felt highly engaging. Endings of eps seem to get just as fucked up as Black Mirror endings, even when the episode initially appears as nothing sinister.

Atlanta returns March 1st and the final season of The Americans begins March 28th. I think it's a little early to make a thread for the latter, especially since there isn't even a teaser yet, but I haven't been this hyped for a show since the last season of Breaking Bad.

Hard Sun
I just watched season one of Hard Sun and it started off promising then nothing of consequence happened then it got weirdly campy just so they could sneak in a reference to Herbert West which didn't really make sense except for how it was campy then the mysterious thing it was all building up to (by which I mean the first episode set up then the 4 hours of screentime between the end of E1 and all but the last two minutes of E6 were basically irrelevant filler I mean I get what they were going for illustrating the consequences and dangers of people finding out but it was all so hamfisted and obvious while remaining hard to connect to as the characters and scenarios were so forced) happened and despite them going on about how they have no idea what it could be oh it's so scary it turned out to be exactly and unimaginatively what it obviously was going to be the whole time I mean they made it incredibly obvious the title of the show gives it away for fuck sake anyway but that's why I'm putting the title in spoilers none of this paragraph gives away anything more substantial than that so I'd appreciate not being edited chiggy love you oh there are one or two things that happen that seemed pretty smart I think like a few instances within certain scenes were clever but the way the scenes and plot as a whole were held together was quite amateurish.
I have no idea who these people are I mean there's tall working class Anne Hathaway who is sort of sympathetic but otherwise unremarkable then English John Wick I guess it's not like Reeves has much range so why should his British clone but I have no idea who these two actors are then all the minor roles were familiar faces like Zsasz from Gotham, the Japanese girl from Bad Education and fucking Jeff from Coupling are all in there I guess it's nice to see Jeff's still getting work I do miss Jeff and Jing isn't exactly hard on the eyes plus there was that black lady who was definitely better in something else that I can't remember right now but it's not like they were given much opportunity for any actual acting here and as I'll go into shortly the make-up or post-production or something I'm not sure what just made everyone who wasn't old or insane far too good looking to be real people and it was just sort of unreal in a distracting way.
Everything looked clean and new and shiny and the colours were strongly saturated it just felt wrong for what seemed to be trying to be a gritty drama about urban crime and death and stuff like even a street shown at night after the rain was totally litter free and the wet was spread perfectly evenly across all the surfaces no puddles or anything just unreal but there were some pretty great arty shots of London from weird angles I did appreciate those but they mostly would be better off in a Mirror's Edge movie.

Also Buffy was kind of like a procedural show with a linear plot throughout the season, could start midway through season 3 and still get the gist of whats going on pretty quickly. where as you cant do that with lots of shows that are made in the binge era, where everything is season long, so you need that good first season to get people actually involved in your show.

I tried watching the americans, gave up after episode 5 (i think?).

Also, I finally found my first rabbit statuette. This one was kinda easy though because it was on the screen the entire episode, though it was small
Almost through season 2, I think my favorite is either La Couchette or The Trial. Both of these were literally "a laugh a minute."
I'm really jaded towards tv comedy these days as they're pretty much all cynical, cheap and lazy but this show really has its shit together and the writers have got all aspects of humor in spades.

Binging Inside No. 9 and the main male actor is starting to get a bit annoying for me. It's probably an issue exclusive to binging the show as it's just so much of him over and over, but to his credit he is a pretty dank actor.

Around season 3 I feel like the show has already peaked in season 2. It's still very fun to watch but I haven't had a laugh a minute episode or a geniunely spooky and fun episode this season. Mediocre in comparison.

That being said, I've got a huge soft spot for anthologies, and this is one of the coolest ones I've seen. I'll finish it regardless.

Just watched The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Profoundly fucked up and weird movie. 4/5
There were maybe 5 lines in the entire movie that felt real, yet it was still amazing. Everything about the dialogue felt overly formal and unnatural, yet it was extremely intriguing in a surreal way.
The camerawork was phenomenal. Lots of beautiful shots that kinda remind me of Space Odyssey. Some similar musical tone too.

The male teenaged character was probably the only character that felt totally real, and that just goes to show his talent and how well he played his part in this surreal soap opera.
It's tough but I think this was my #2 movie of 2017, even though I just now got to it. Right behind Blade Runner 2049.

Don't feel like making a new thread so I'll just throw this in here: Bryan Fuller (and head writer Michael Green) is out on American Gods. apparently he wanted more money and time for the second season and Starz said no to both, so he bailed and is already attached to the fucking Vampire Chronicles of all things. such a sad development, the first season of American Gods is a masterpiece and one of the most unique and creative things I've seen on TV. reminds of how the showrunner for Ash vs. Evil Dead left after season 2, but that was over creative differences with the other people working on the show, not with Starz. still sucks to see something good get squandered though.

Also read Starz is doing a John Wick series, that better not be why they didn't want to up the budget for American Gods cause who actually cares that much about having a John Wick series without Keanu as the lead?

same, that movie is easily one of my favorites from last year. the ending is so infuriating though why didn't he just kill his bitch daughter!?

Somehow Hannibal was sexier without ever having sex scenes than American Gods was doing softcore porn. As for Vampire Chronicles, of course they get associated with shit like Twilight these days, but those first three books were true mergers of literary writing and the horror genre. The way characters wax poetic about the nature of evil is like something out of Crime & Punishment. I can see Fuller using their world to make something very close to Hannibal in style. I actually only read the books very recently and was thinking of the Hannibal show the whole time, both are loaded with homoerotic undertones and make you want to drop out of society to become a serial killer with a sexy psycho leader. lol um im not even gay/bi, so these are some books. Too bad lestat or hannibal couldnt be hot chicks but oh well, I can dig the Fight Club 'boys rule, girls drool' attitude

I don't think it was about not eating meat per se. Mija eats fish and chicken in the movie after all. There's also a subtle joke at the expense of one of the more fanatical ALF members who refuses to eat anything because he thinks all food production is inherently exploitative.

I think it was more intended as a exploration of the ethics of large-scale industrial meat production, and a commentary on the disgusting, inhumane, disrespectful conditions most of our livestock has to suffer through before being slaughtered. It doesn't go so far as to demonize carnivores, but it definitely wants us think a bit harder about where our food comes from, and if we're comfortable with enabling people to profit from animal cruelty. Fantastic film for sure. Bong Joon-ho is probably my second favorite Korean filmmaker behind Park Chan-wook

Watched Split (2016) last night, it was great. I was kind of annoyed that they left it open to a sequel but honestly I would watch a part 2 as long as McCovy came back for it.

Tonight I watched Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Really good movie. I thought it would be more hokey than it was but it turned out to be very grounded. The smart characters were quick and the dumb ones were not, which sounds like commons sense but it was a big part of this film. I liked Woody's part in it a lot especially the letters that he left behind that further colored his character after he offed himself. That and how it was a morally conflicted film that ended on an ambiguous note felt right to me.

Watched Drive last night.

It was pretty good. More violent than I was expecting. One thing that bugged me was Ryan Gosling's characters smirk for like the first half of the movie. He was acting all mysterious and quiet and has this stupid ass smirk on his face that's really annoying.

Finally decided to check out Supernatural, after I've heard people talking about it all the time for years. I figure it's gotta be decent if it's gotten like 12 seasons.
Watched the first couple episodes so far and I'm thinking this could be my cup of tea. It's basically X Files Monster of the Week type shit with a lot of horror tropes on top of that as well.
Not super invested in the characters yet but maybe they'll grow on me.

It gets pretty bad around season 6-8 but if you can power through that, the current season (13) is pretty good. Seasons 1-5 are great as well so you've got a lot of good content there

First season had so much promise, but the moment they had to start giving payoff on the storyline of the missing Dad, everything became the convoluted mess that is season 2 and beyond

Which main actor? Reece Shearsmith or Steve Pemberton?

I really like Inside No 9, I like that when you start an episode you have literally no idea what to expect. The problem with it is that it's so concerned with surprising you, the writing pivots around making sure you don't see it coming, so it gets ridiculous at the end and can never really carry any weight. But you enjoy the ride.
Compared to Black Mirror, I like Black Mirror too but once you figure out what an episode's "thing" is, usually way sooner than the show thinks you will, you're just left with a long pretty dreary story that goes nowhere

Reece Shearsmith

I think it was just because I watched so many episodes in a row, and he's always at the forefront of every episode. It just felt like I was watching him jerk off about how great of an actor he is. Which he is of course a great actor, but still.

I think it is the fan base around it that makes it seem much worse than it is. Their fan base is horrible but the show itself really isn't that bad.

And yes, a lot of the CW stuff is geared towards teenagers/20 somethings especially women but that isn't the case for all of it and some of the shows are pretty decent. Not great but good for what is out there these days.

I don't see how the show is geared towards women aside from having attractive male leads. There isn't much romance, will they wont they bullshit, sex, or anything like that and certainly not as much as something like Grimm which I fell doesn't have the same stigma.

Maybe that is just my take as a male and someone who just watches the show, doesn't hang out in any of the fan communities which are pretty much just fueled by tumblr tier women, and doesn't really discuss it at all.

Its mostly just a couple bros killing monsters.

Watched The Disaster Artist last night, it was great. Probably more laugh out loud moments than any traditional comedy movie that I've watched in awhile.

I'd say it's not necessarily geared specifically toward women, but it's definitely strongly got the female audience in mind, which is why it has a huge female following.
The two leads are essentially male models, and every women they run into falls in love with one of them essentially. Parts of it are made for women to self insert.

Darkest Hour was only okay. As much as I though Dunkirk was not so great I'd definitely rather watch that than the political side of the story. It was mostly a character study of Churchill which has been done a bunch already. meh

Watching the Resident Evil movies on IFC. Saw the first one back when it came out and enjoyed it. Not as great as the Romero script sounded, but pretty decent for a video game adaptation. The second one, Apocalypse, is terrible, though. Saw it in the theater with friends and hated it. Watched it again just now and it's still bad, but I'm kind of apathetic to its suckiness. Watching the third one now, Extinction, and it's pretty boring. I can't believe they got Russell Mulcahy (the Highlander guy) to direct it. How bizarre. Also for some reason IFC showed the 5th one but not the 4th one, so I guess I'll have to check if that one's streaming anywhere. This series is pretty crappy but I feel inclined to finish watching it so at least I know it's shit for certain.

Watched Thor: Ragnarok tonight. Pretty enjoyable for what it was. If you've seen the other Marvel movies and liked them you'll be into this one too. Yeah, not sure what else to say, it was alright.

I'm a pretty big MCU fanboy but I hated how comedic Ragnarok was. It really killed the movie for me, and felt out of character for Thor. I think giving that movie to Taika Watiti was a mistake, it should have been even more serious than The Dark World not moved in the complete opposite direction.

I only watched the first Thor years ago so I don't really know about the character, but I do know Ragnarok was super successful at the box office so general audiences enjoyed it quite a bit which I imagine is all they really care about. The only joke that actually made me laugh was a miscommunication joke between the kiwi rock dude and Thor where he mistakenly implied that his hammer "pulled him off" when he was trying to explain how it helped him fly. Goldblum was funny too, and everyone in it is likable.

Oh and holy shit Blanchett looks fuckin goooood, can't wait for that porn parody. If only I had a hammer of my own...

yeah it made crazy money and had rave reveiws. but it still bothers me that Thor is supposed to be on a quest to find the infinity stones before Thanos can use them to control pretty much the entire universe (something he was pretty serious about in Avengers 2) has no luck, and along the way watches his dad die, indirectly because of Loki. has his hammer destroyed by Hela, who he later learns is his sister. loses all of his warriors three, which reminds me that Lady Sif was MIA and nobody even mentioned where she was. and finally he brings about Ragnarok to destroy Hela, watching as Asgard is destroyed. and through all of this, neither he nor the movie ever seems to take it that seriously. the director cracking a lame joke during that climax completely killed everything the movie had been building up to.

Also, the big zinger from Thor 2, that Loki has taken Odin's place, was completely thrown aside and pointless because the director didn't want to deal with it. It's just disappointing because this movie was a big deal for Thor and the larger MCU but it just feels like a tryhard joke.

I do agree that Goldblum was great though, and Blanchett was awesome. It's too bad they took the usual route of not giving their villain enough screen time then killing them off[%] instead of using her to be the personification of Death that Thanos has the hots for in Infinity War.

I'll say more or less what everyone else will say. Starts off strong when it's "Monster of the week" then I guess they just sort of blew all their budget on said monsters. Remember the Wendigo? Full on costume, pretty good too. I knew we were in trouble when a Werewolf showed up, were provided with lore that conveniently requires little in the way of effects and make up. Then Angels and Demons show up. To many shows ramp up the scope of things without actually ramping up anything else. Show starts as two brothers who are monster hunters on the road. There are many others in America and presumably many others in the world, cool.... except these ones are really really important and will determine the fate of humanity, in fights that are essentially powering up in Dragon Ball Z without any actual fight happening. Pic related, Supernaturals idea of an epic battle.

Finally got around to watching Get Out. Pretty dope movie, fun ride, would watch an other Peele movie. 8/10

Halfway through I thought that it felt a lot like an episode of Black Mirror, then I realized Chris is the same dude from 50 million merits. Great casting choice. The whole story was really well done and pretty creative.
I kinda got spoiled because I heard that it is sci fi (technically) but that didn't take away from the movie for me at all. If anything it added a little bit because I was constantly trying to figure out what the sci fi twist was gonna be.

Shameless went hard as fuck this week. One complaint this season is I think the Church Of Gay Jesus storyline is boring and stupid. I mean, I agree that God likes gay people, it's just a lame plot.
