Finished Godzilla

3rd movie is pretty Lovecraftian. Also throughout the whole series I can't help but see the two other races as dwarves and elves.

Is there an OT for “YOU”? The girlfriend and I just binge watched the shit out of it and we were absolutely drawn in. Main lead is phenomenal and the most of the antagonists (if you could call them that) are insufferable millennials.

Reminded me a lot of a modern day Dexter but if he was a clever incel. The only real complaints I have is it gets a little ridiculous at the end and the whole Karen multi episode romantic subplot dragged.

If you’re looking for a new show, would very much recommend. Like, really don’t sleep on it.

So funny, was just searching around for an OT for this! I was hoping to find spoilers! My gf is obsessed right now and I'm sitting back impatient.. it is well done though, like a higher budget CW type.

Is it a turnaround from s1? I recall people posting that s1 was not good and they were surprised it got renewed. I went off those reviews and passed on it.

Never understood the negatives on season 1. Wife and I have seen it at least 3 times, but Season 2 is much better. You have to watch Season 1 to really get Season 2 tho.

For us the breakout star of the show is Fred Savage. Dude is so fucking good in this series!

Finally got around to watching The Night Comes for Us.

Was 😬 the whole time with the violence lol. Enjoyed it though. These Asian movie fight scenes always seem to hit so much harder. I suppose it helps when your actors are trained and doing the fights instead of having to edit and shot a certain way to hide the stunt person.

I'm most of the way through "Bodyguard" and I'm very impressed, especially with Richard Madden as a captivating and unpredictable protagonist. That 22 minute-long opening sequence set a high bar for the series, and it's delivering like crazy.

Now I want a cross-over series where that character and Marcella from "Marcella" team up, have a lot of crazy, weird sex, and possibly solve a crime along the way.

I watched the first episode of You and I think I'm on board.
Yeah I wasn’t sure at first cuz it seemed like the trailer was the whole show and how could they milk that for a whole season right? But damn was it some good fun haha I still kind of feel 😬 saying that about a show centered around stalking. Lol

I'm going to watch Close tonight as it got some decent reviews from IMBb page links. I like most Noomi Rapace movies, especially What Happened to Monday.

Finished up Bodyguard this week. What a tense damn show, not since last season of Homeland that I got so nervous. I'll probably watch You next week, great trailer attached, and I want something Revenge-y.

IO Looks like it could be a decent scifi. Reviews are pretty middling tho.
I quite liked it, although it was a slow paced, introspective film instead of an overdramatic race against time as pictured in the trailer. Nice haunting soundtrack, great cinematography, and it makes you think- do we all leave and hedge our bets in the stars, or try and adapt to a changing Earth? Ymmv but my girlfriend and I both enjoyed it.

I thought IO was a complete waste of 90 minutes. The setup was interesting enough to tell a story but the people who wrote the movie were apparently more interested in writing plot holes than writing plot.

Anyone watch Polar yet? It looks like it could be really fun, but I havent seen any actual reviews for it yet.

Watched Close the other night and really enjoyed it. Felt like Taken for the most part. Its not going to win any awards or anything, but it wasnt a waste of time either. Plus I really like Noomi Rapace.

Glanced at a few scenes of Ozark. The hell's up with the blue filter? Has the subtlety of a sledgehammer.

Also saw the young kid talking about drugs in his school during some drug pledge and... have they ever heard real kids talk before?
