Watched The Righteous earlier. Very good.

The Righteous (2021) - IMDb
Looking at this movie in France led me to Shadowz, a streaming service specialized in horror movies. I suppose it’s the French or Euro Shudder.
Tons of shitty gorefests I won’t approach with a ten-foot pole, but there are some 50-70’s horror, some Corman, William Castle, Carpenter, etc.
Interesting.

During down time when on vacay (still is), I've managed to watch Top Gun (fantastic movie), Maverick (fantastic movie, got addicted to Miles version of Great Balls of Fire) and Black Swan (really good).

Nice things to come soon. I’m curious about The Sandman adaptation on Netflix and Bullet Train looks like middling but silly fun. I may forget somethings, I seem to recall several releases in August.

Downunder.
I started watching the latest season of Westworld while waiting for my anime downloads to finish.

It wasn't bad, not as convoluted as its earlier season, but somehow lost its sense of mystery as a result. I won't go as far as saying Anthony Hopkins carried the whole show, but Evan Rachel Wood's role as Dolores has diminished even further in this season. Aaron Paul was alright, I suppose. I just can't see him as a family man at all, though.

No idea if I want to keep watching, maybe I'll read some impressions of the later episodes first.

I watched that Severance show and it was really really good. An incredible cast and suspension throughout. Tho I gotta say I hate how the season ends on a bunch of cliffhangers. It could have used one more episode to flesh everything out instead of dangling everything going into a new season like that. Not a fan of what should have been an amazing ending being packed into whats basically a 20 minute stretch like that. Maybe if it was season 2 or 3 you can do that but doing it in the first season feels shitty imo.


The one thing that kind of confused me
is the wife. So she really didn't die and just a spy from the company? And all for what? To do therapy sessions with him? They already have neighbor spies but why go to such ridiculous lengths. Its pretty clear they are all being watched heavily in some form or the other so hopefully we get more backstory on that in next season because the rabbit hole feels a lot deeper than what the story is showing.

Also we are a few weeks away from new Game of Thrones and less than a month from new Lord of the Rings show. What a time to be alive :D One of them better be good.
