I bit the bullet and I got a month of Shudder for the season. If anyone has any rec's, I'll take 'em.

Looking forward to seeing Little Monsters tomorrow on Hulu. Zombies, comedy, Evil Tv personalities, beautiful ladies, can't ask for more in a horror comedy.

Think I have to go see Joker again this weekend. I think it's the best comic book movie but tied as my favorite next to Endgame. I wish the DCU started with Joker and all the movies managed to do what that did. It would have been such good complement to the MCU, instead of both trying to do the same thing and where the DCU fails miserably.

Speaking of violence and rich people (and great movies), you should all watch Parasite by Bong Joon-Ho if you have the chance. Such a brilliant movie.

My favorite movies of the past 4-5 years are all Korean (The Handmaiden, The Wailing, Burning and now Parasite) and I highly recommend them all. Just to recommend something not Korean, you should also watch Shoplifters (which is Japanese) and Leviathan (which is Russian). All kinda similar in themes but very different in execution.

Just some random suggestions that crossed my mind.

Welp, just bought tickets to The Rise of Skywalker on IMAX 2D.

I hope there won't be a lot of kids in this particular time slot I've chosen (who am I kidding, it's Star Wars)

I should rewatch it someday :3 Do consider giving the comic series a read since they act as interesting continuation to the series.

I still don't get what's the big deal with Star Wars to this day.
Nor what kids would see in it. Then again it is vanilla cookie cutter.
Kids should watch Doctor Who instead. Now THAT is quality sci fi.

I fucking hate Disney:



If this crap continues, very soon it will be next to impossible to watch films that weren't made in the last 20 years.
After all the crap Disney does (or, doesn't do, to be more precise) with their older titles, this was bound to happen as well with the catalogues of the studios they bought.
And, many of those studios already owned whole libraries of titles from other older studios under their wing, so this is a disaster.

As a film lover, this is very depressing.

Disney isn't your friend and isn't out there protecting and preserving art. They do have a great pr machine and excellent social media support.

Not gonna let the Disney boogey man live rent free in my head though. Disney can't control everything.

The other major studios and film corps would/are doing this too, they can get away with it.

Personally it's more because of nostalgia more than anything else. Although I wasn't as invested in the series as much as Blade Runner, for example, I still feel the need to see this series to its conclusion. I'm not sure myself why. I enjoyed the original trilogy since it's a part of my childhood, but I'm mostly lukewarm on the rest. I enjoyed Rouge One a whole lot more than other people, though. :02shrug:

Saw The Conjuring 2 last night. Damn that was good. I forgot what a genuinely well acted and cleverly scary horror film was like! This season I've seen balls to wall strange and unusual (Mandy, Society and Inferno), classics (The Blob, Black Christmas, Hammer horror shit) but nothing that put me on edge. I missed that.

I just saw Parasite and I really want to echo the recommendations made above. Go watch it, it's an amazing film.

So I’ve tried this AppleTV+ thing (1 month is pretty cheap and I have 1 free week anyway) and I’m so going to watch that trainwreck called See. How the hell the show so dumb was written by one of the best tv writers working today (and Oscar nominee to boot) is beyond me, but if you’re in the mood to watch blind people being ninjas while dancing Haka (what’s the point, your adversary can’t see you) the show is for you. Apple clearly paid a lot for this show tho, production values are pretty high, so at least it’s not as bad as Canadian shows on SyFy that look like they were shot in the abandoned warehouse somewhere in British Columbia.

Speaking of other shows, For All Mankind looks interesting, but I’m not really sure what direction it’s supposed to take, we’ll see.

I was lucky enough to have The Irishman shown in theater where I live (where this kind of stuff usually never happens) so I went and saw it.

It really is the quintessential Scorsese's movie, with many elements borrowed from his previous gangster films. Maybe not as visionary as his works of the 70's, 80's and 90's but still a masterclass in cinematography. Very good both in form and content. I highly recommend watching it if you usually like his movies.

Gotta say, Mandalorian looks great, and I never cared about SW to begin with. Too bad I won't be able to legally watch it for the next 2 years.

FUCK DISNEY. FUCK DISNEY PLUS. FUCK THE CORPORATE CULTURAL HOLD THOSE FUCKS HAVE ON AMERICA. FUCK. YOU.

No lie, any adult buying Disney plus and dropping Netflix, I guess you dgaf about an important part of your culture being fucking steamrolled by cookie cutter sanitized bullshit and the same company that suspended and fired people from ESPN over a "stick to sports policy". The same thing we all cheered Deadspin's staff for fighting against, ESPN rolled the fuck over. I guess you don't care that seven of the top ten grossing films, at least, will be Disney movies, that Disney is full on sanitizing its content for access to restrictive cultural markets the world over. If you're an adult, is your nostalgia that fucking important? It reminds me of something I read once, that in the far future humans could transfer their consciousness into robots to survive the heat death of the universe but could over think the same thoughts over and over again.

God I hate them. And Disney defenders, just shut up and take the fucking win huh? Fuck me, will you not be satisfied until Disney has 10 films in a year that do over a Billion world wide? When they put Netflix out of business? Fuck Disney.

Yes, the endless shit about Disney plus has set me off this morning and idgaf what you think. I heard it on the radio, I heard it in person, its all over the place. Fuck off Disney.

Anyone surprised that Disney didn' t give a single solitary fuck and just passed off garbage versions of the classic simpsons, smeary hd, cropped to fuck and with shitty new lettering?? No one? Really, I thought Disney was supposed to be the fucking SAVIORS of film/tv preservation with their VAULT and PRESERVATION!!!

Lol fuck Disney Plus. I'm sure the slop is in fine quality but a series that actually, believe it or not, at one time. meant something they treat it like garbage.

I saw the first episode last night, and it is looking very good indeed. Anamorphic aspect ratio, production values went through the roof. I can't help feeling that The Mandalorian himself is kind of a "silent protagonist" since he hardly talk except for a one-liner here and there. It had an interesting hook at the end though, so I think I'll keep watching for a bit.

Not yet.

Since I'm located in Europe, and since I had plenty of problems with shipments from Amazon.com, when the UK set was announced I cancelled my US pre-order, and pre-ordered the UK set (which is out later this month). :)
I had a scare since Amazon AU practically smashed the parcel since it's ripped apart around its edges, but thankfully it's double-packed with some air bags. :02eyes:

So the new Harley animated series, based on the latest trailer
Concept sounds promising but execution...a lot of it just comes off as catering to lowest common denominator. You can have gore and vulgarity but doing it in excess makes the series come off droll and tasteless.
I still intend to watch it through it, and give my judgement on it, but that trailer is not instilling much confidence.

I took advantage of AMC's free month of A-List and I've seen Harriet, Zombieland: Double Tap, The Current War - Director's Cut, Jojo Rabbit, and Doctor Sleep for free in the last week.. I also have tickets for Charlie's Angels, Frozen 2, and A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. I might also try to see Parasite next week.
