I've been really enjoying Last Kingdom since season 2 picked up, though I admit it's best to start with season 1 even though its acting and writing were rough and unpolished then. It's on Netflix.
Just binge-watched season 1 today.

Starting on season 2 now.

Great stuff.

Blade Runner 2 was amazing. But I was tired while watching and it really dampened the impact. Def going to go see again.

Far exceeded my expectations. I think it's easily Ridley Scott's best work (as a Producer). The direction of Denis Villeneuve was fantastic as well. Art direction, fantastic. Effects, fantastic. Acting was superb, it was easily Harrison Ford's best performance -- he portrayed a range of emotion that he's typically not asked to portray, and it was not a one-note Fordism.

The biggest glitch to me was the music. Hans Zimmer's loud-as-fuck machine whirrs and deep bass swells sort of distracted me, and while they definitely set the tone and the mood, it wasn't nearly as subtle or ground-breaking as Vangelis' soundtrack was for the original. I think they could have splurged to find someone with a more subtle palette than the Zimmer Crew.

There was so much to unpack in the movie, I will definitely need to see it a few times to absorb it properly.

Blade Runner was so crazy good.  Immersive and mesmerizing on such an epic scale.  When it finished, I just sat there, wondering to myself if that was the best movie I had ever seen.

I would definitely rewatch the original before going if you havenít seen it in years.  I really wanna see the new one in 3D now.

I didnít mind the soundtrack at all.  Loud, yes, but...it fits.
You know I think if James simply retitled his thread "Cheese" and apologized for his first post being off-topic, all problems would be solved.

https://myanimelist.net/anime/34599/Made_in_Abyss

The Abyssóa gaping chasm stretching down into the depths of the earth, filled with mysterious creatures and relics from a time long past. How did it come to be? What lies at the bottom? Countless brave individuals, known as Divers, have sought to solve these mysteries of the Abyss, fearlessly descending into its darkest realms. The best and bravest of the Divers, the White Whistles, are hailed as legends by those who remain on the surface.

Hardly three episodes in and this anime series is already turning out to be a 10/10, for me. The art is somewhat "cutesy" but don't let that throw you off - It has very mature themes (not sexual, but it's aimed at an obviously mature audience). It's a refreshing breakaway from a lot of stereotypical genres and it's already shaping up to be a really original story. The art and music are also very well done and choreographed excellently. You can see the amount of effort, put into each episode.

Season one of the Good Place always kept me guessing with its plot twists and always kept me laughing. I watched the season 2 opener last night and it's continuing to keep up with expectations. It's a winner so far. With the way they make such dramatic changes all the time I'm concerned they'll screw things up by going too far but so far so good.

If you haven't watched season one, watch that first due to major spoilers. Season one is great.



I really liked this.  Its really funny.

"Godless" 

New netflix western with a great cast.  One line specifically reminded me of our world here.

This. Finished it. Love Longmire.

And I just finished the last season of Justified, too. Unbelieveable.

Justified might be my favorite TV series of all time.

Two good series: Vikings and Knightfall. Season 5 of Vikings started a few weeks back, so I've been catching up on that and Knightfall began just last week and it's been pretty decent, so far.

Watched The Last Jedi.

I really liked it.
And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

Finally there is 1080p version of Blade Runner 2049 out. Excited to watch it again as I was very tired in the theater when I first saw it.

Merry Christmas.

Oh and if you aren't watching this season of Agents of Shield you are truly missing out.

We didn't make it past the beginning of.... Season 2 I think? I've been told it picks up, but there's just SOOOO much to watch these days.

Killjoys, Expanse, Colony, Future Man, Doctor Who, Crazy Ex Girlfriend..... The list keeps going on and on.

     "'Bout damn time, lol.  She didn't bang you up too bad, did she?"
The man says, ooc:
     "OG did i jsut do that?"

I personally would remove everything except for The Expanse and Future Man from that list...

Then add The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel right at the top.

I'm halfway into the series of The People VS O.J. Simpson. Pretty fucking good. Who knows what's going to happen. Rooting for the good guys, here. No spoilers please.

And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."
