Few series hold my interest for very long, if that happens I just stop watching it.

Atomic Blonde. Movie was so so. It cant decide if it wants to be John wick or Tinker tailer soldier spy and just awkwardly ends up somewhere between the two. Visually it's very good though and the soundtrack is enjoyable.

I feel the same way about television shows.


Agreed, or just TV in general, with very, very few exceptions in recent memory (first season of True Detective...). Main reason I don't even get channels on my TV and I only use it for movies.


I think in the last 5+ years or so, "good" television has greatly exceeded film. There are many excellent series out there. I'm not talking about network tv serials where a case/plot is wrapped up in a hour, rinse and repeat next week etc. I'm talking about long thematic arcs with characterization much beyond what can be accomplished in a 2 hour film. It seem most of the best writers are involved in TV, not movies. (exceptions on both ends of course).

I don't know man, few things in the television universe capture my attention like they did in the 90's. Example, out of all the things on Netflix to watch, I chose "Magic's Biggest Secret's Revealed." The last great show that I was forced to was "True Detective", first season only.

Comedy wise, The League, fit the bill.

Been going through classic British Horror films, specificaly Hammer Horror, if it's got Christopher Lee and/ or Peter Cushing in, I'm checking it.

Some memorable ones concerning plot, dialogue, atmosphere and visuals:

The Creeping Flesh 7.5/10
The Abominable Snowman 7/10
Horror Express 7/10
The Flesh And The Fiends 8/10
Taste The Blood Of Dracula 7.5/10
The Gorgon 6.5/10
Frankenstein Created Woman 6.5/10
Quatermass And The Pit 6/10
The Skull 7/10

The Oblong Box and The Tomb Of Ligeia with Vincent Price were also very good.

I did the voiceover for this short film/animation. The creator wanted a 70's grindhouse trailer type of voice for it, https://vimeo.com/246749816

Why the hell was the mid season finale of The Walking Dead so dark? I mean literally, it was like the lighting guys took a week off. I couldn't even always tell which characters were on screen. Which person might this indiscernible dark blob be? Ezekiel? Negan in his black leather jacket was nearly reduced to a disembodied head with a flying baseball bat. I had to check if my TV calibration settings were still in order.

I think I figured what roughly happened, but where everything happened and some details and eh... I don't know. Someone got shot I think. Fuck knows who.

Do you mean when Carl was throwing the smoke grenades? That's the only thing I can think of that made it all dark but it wasn't so dark I thought I was missing anything.

I pretty much thought this mid-season finale sucked...

Finally got around to watching Mother. I know it's loved by all for its shocking portrayal of creation and so forth, but I found it to an art film for the sake of being artsy. Once it got to the end it just spiraled from there on out and I lost interest in it completely.

Disaster Artist was excellent. James Franco transformed himself like no other and for fans of The Room, it's a real winner.


Agree with your views on both movies. Mother sucked to me. I just kept feeling like the director was saying "look at it! Aren't you disturbed!" and forgot to write a compelling story.

SPOILERS FOR MOTHER

I also thought Jennifer lawrence's character was supposed to represent Mary not Mother Earth, or whatever and her child Jesus was taken from her to be used as a symbol instead of letting her have a child of her own. Essentially I was thinking it was another take on God throwing a baby into Mary, and after birth instead of letting her just be a loving mother, the child is used as a messiah (Jesus) that the people selfishly kill. Although in the Bible she does raise Jesus but I thought of it more as she knows what will become of her child so she doesn't want him to become the messiah. An interpretation where Mary is a victim of not being able to really have a child of her own due to God and the people's selfishness. I liked that better but still thought it was shit.



She represented motherhood in all its forms

shit.

Especially the form of motherhood that is an over hyped mediocre (at BEST) actress that for some reason people think (or just say) is hot even though she looks like an average bar skank at last call. And all the people who said "she's SO hot", were the creeps saying that when she was a 15 year old Hunger Games girl.

https://severin-films.com/shop/threads-lenticular-bluray/

It's sorta like a 1980s docu-styled version of The Road if you've never seen it

What was that 80's TV movie with Steve Guttenburg that was like this? The Day After?
