    i mean, neither show is anything like hannibal other than slightly stylistically (and a little of the sense of humor).

    dead like me is funny and subdued, pushing daisies is really whimsical and sweet. it really depends on your mood. i love both, but pushing daisies has a bigger place in my heart.

    There was an enormous thread back on the old board, but then we had the big crash and ETS started from scratch. This happened after Lost had already wrapped up so I'm sure no one felt like there was any point. It's too bad, cause the old thread was so much fun.

    (Spoiler free) Thoughts?
    Er, not so sure about season 5 being the fan favorite. I always hear people refer to Season 5 as the one they hate the most because they introduce some goofy plotlines and focus way too much on unlikeable characters. In general, I think Lost is best during the first 2 or 3 seasons, and then it starts to decline. With S4 I could already feel a dip in quality, although there were still some really cool episodes. S5 is definitely the low point. That was tough to get through. S6 is a mixed bag, but it's still an massive improvement over S5.

    The basic problem with Lost is that they were masters of setting up a good mystery, but they were not so good at delivering a resolution. That's why the show is sort of "front loaded" when it comes to quality. The first few seasons are so fun and mysterious and evocative, but after a while you can't help but feeling like they lost their muse. That said, I still enjoyed it for what it is. Even during their worst stretches, they were still capable of pulling off some cool moments.

    Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.

    First time I've seen it since I was probably about 10, and holy shit. Nostalgia overload. <3 I remember EVERYTHING.

    BBC Two "The Human Body: Secrets of Your Life Revealed" documentary, 3 parts. Like, for example when some pathogen enters you, it is detected by some... forgot what exactly, white blood cell?, which does not attack that pathogen but takes sample (!), delivers it to lymphatic system node, there it is compared with database :-) of already fought pathogens and then billions of immunoglobuline are going to kill it. Or, we are not born with fear nor disgust (to rotting food for example), but learn it. Or how mother milk delivers much needed bacteria to children's digestive system. Very entertaining watch.

    Goddamn, this Jim and Andy documentary (about Jim Carrey's CRAZY ass method approach to Man on the Moon) is fucking fascinating.
    Jim Carrey is a lunatic.

    I adored watching this. I got deeply involved into the story and I had the novel prior but haven't read it (intimidating at over 1000+ pages) but now that'll have to change. This is why I hate miniseries. I loved this so much I wish there was more haha.

    Spoiler: Final episode fucked me up big time when Jake chooses not to remain in the 1960's with Sadie. The rest was no less jarring with sorrow. I had empathy for the characters in this story haha. I ached for Jake and his star crossed lover scenario.

    I am trying Netflix (expecting Black Mirror) and Amazon Prime (expecting The Grand Tour, btw driver auditions are funny), when Netflix asked what I like I chose Stranger Things, House of Cards and Black Mirror, and they offered me also IT Crowd. I watched it back then but now I am spontaneously watching it all again and it is hilarious. And sometimes sooo not politically correct, great! :-D I am not sure they would get away with some of that stuff now, and that was only a few years ago, what happened? :-(

    Also, remember that dude from True Detective 2 who we were not sure if he can pull off that kind of character, Vince Vaughn? Well, try Brawl in Cell Block 99, it is brutal.

    yeah, and your spoiler was 10 times rougher in the book. i was literally in tears.
    95 percent of the time i read the book first because i'm a SK fanatic.
    but the one time i read the book after the movie (secret window,) it was fucking awesome. it was like watching a director's cut of the movie with deleted scenes. this is because you already have the characters and locations in your head.

    i hate it when people say "the book is better" because they are totally different mediums. But if you plan to read the book, you are in for a fucking treat. The miniseries was true to the book but cut, out of necessity, about 50% of it.

    Planning to see Tomb Raider when it comes out. I'm excited about the casting. I like Alicia Vikander. She's younger and she doesn't have all the baggage of Angelina Jolie. Angelina was a very polarizing celebrity. She always seemed like an evil conniving woman even when she was trying to be a role model. I can't bring myself to like or trust someone who steals another woman's husband, no matter how long ago it was.

    Alicia used to live with Icona Pop. She's also a friend of Tove Lo. Does everyone in Sweden know each other? LOL

    Dark. It's the Netflix original, it's really good so far. I like the feel and the pace, I can't wait to see where it goes.

    The Good Doctor. I started watching this show on Hulu and I really liked it. I think that Freddie does great with what he has. He actually acts like someone with autism, which is here to pull off. I have Asperger Syndrome, so it's nice to see autistic themed shows more now. (This and Atypical)

    The Gifted. Well X-Men Apocalypse left a bitter feeling in my gut, being that he was my favorite X-Men villain and they royally fucked him up in my opinion. That made me steer clear of this show for a while. (Although I LOVED Logan)
    Now since I've been watching it, it's become one of my favorite super-hero themed shows. I've always tended to like the X-Men more anyway, since they have to deal with prejudice and racism and I'm glad that's not steered away from. I hope they renew it for season 2.

    Truman Show, Man on the Moon, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - these three movies prove to me how great actor Jim Carrey is. And now there's this documentary (also on Netflix) about Man on the Moon, lots of behind the scenes footage and Jim talking now, and sometimes I wasn't sure if Jim was mentally OK during filming ;-), Forman was also confused it seems. Interesting and touching.

    Just watched Coco a couple of days ago with my friend and wow.. We both got so emotional through the end, I think its the best movie of this year imo haha.

    But for shows I am watching The Office and trying to get some more free time to watch Stranger Things.

    Saw The Shape of Water last night in NYC.

    I haven't openly wept in a movie theater like that in years – I wanted to stand up & furiously clap when it ended, but then I would have been the weird crying guy giving a standing ovation. It's probably Guillermo del Toro's best movie, and I'm only holding off on that title because it's been less than 24 hours since I've seen it.

    Sally Hawkins and Michael Shannon are reliably fantastic, but the film's secret weapon is Richard Jenkins. [edit: the whole cast is great – Octavia Spencer is amazing, Michael Stuhlbarg is amazing, and Doug Jones is of course the secret weapon of GDT's career]


    Blade Runner 2049 surely has the best cinematography of the year (Deakins 4 life), but Shape has the most moving imagery. In other words, the content & construction of the shots are the most emotionally stunning I've seen, as opposed to the peerless mood & styling that Deakins & Villeneuve create.

    Anyway, Shape met my high expectations and ripped my heart out of my chest. Please see it!

    Watched "The Great Escape" this morning. That movie is almost as old as me. Still a very entertaining film. What a cast!

    I still feel to this day that The Last Samurai didn’t get as much Oscar consideration as it should have. Tom Cruise and Ken Watanabe were fantastic in this film.

    Despite John Toll's incredible cinematography and Ken Watanabe's performance. It's a film that I think was a bit of an Oscar-bait film while Tom Cruise does his usual schtick though it's restrained and has a hilarious moment when he screams for Sake.

    Earlier today, I watched Fifty Shades Darker and here is my rant on the film: https://letterboxd.com/thevoid99/fil...shades-darker/

    If any of you SJWs can't handle my rant, then fuck you.

    ...what?

    you're criticizing a terrible movie for being terrible, and one that many people are outspoken against as a horrendous misrepresentation of BDSM relationships (as this is simply an abusive relationship disguised as "romantic"). why would anyone give you shit for that?

    Look, I don't know about you guys, but I generally go around blaming every single thing in life on "SJWs."

    Road construction making me late for work....fucking SJWs are at it again.
    My phone is fucking up even though I've only had it for a year...probably SJWs are involved somehow.
    Ran out of peanut butter...Goddamn SJWs.

    It's fun! Try it today.
