    Girl on a train - terrible. No really, the more I think about it, terrible.

    Victoria on Masterpiece - love it. Dumb American always knew that there was some great love story between her and Albert. This just dramatizes it for us visual types.

    Working on a NetFlix doc: Shadow of Truth.

    I am ADDICTED to this show, I am gonna be SO bummed out when it ends. But I keep thinking, whenever I see Prince Albert, of that whole Giant Dick legend. And I wonder if that's why he and the Queen are bonking all the time.

    edit: although I guess IRL they were both prudes, especially Prince Albert, and the Queen was really distant with her kids, wouldn't win a Mother of the Year award. But TV period romance makes for good fun.

    Didn't know the giant dick story. Maybe it was really his technique

    As for motherly distance, what did she have 9 kids? My Poor Irish Great G'mother had that many. She probably didn't know the youngest very well because the other kids raised em while she was working to put food on the table. No different ruling a kingdom. Busy busy.

    picked back up on Orphan Black, we're in the middle of season 3. that show is so good but so stressful, it's impossible to binge-watch.

    my wife and i just did a double feature of Cloverfield (which i hadn't seen since it was in the theater and sarah hadn't seen at all) and 10 Cloverfield Lane (which neither of us had seen). the former holds up pretty well 9 years later, and the "sequel" was absolutely fantastic. i'm just gonna go have an anxiety attack about our impending doom.

    also, weird story - michael stahl-david, who plays rob in cloverfield, is my abusive ex's nephew (her half-sister is WAY older than her, and mike is a couple years older than her, so it's more like a cousin relationship). anyway, he's a really nice guy, came to my family's holiday party one year, and i was always sad he lost out the part in tron legacy (it was basically between him and garrett hedlund).

    john carpenter's Prince Of Darkness

    god damn, that was good. i can't believe there was a carpenter movie that neither me or my wife had seen, and our friend jon hadn't, either. it was so fun to watch together after a long day and it was genuinely scary.

    I've really enjoyed Tarsem Singh's Emerald City series, hope it returns next year.

    keep forgetting about that! i love tarsem singh and my wife is obsessed with the Oz books so we're both excited to check it out.

    last night we watched The Terminator (which my wife had seen once, years ago) and tonight we watched Terminator 2 (which she had never seen). two of my favorite films. i've watched them countless times but neither for several years. they still hold up so well, the first one still scares me, and the second one is still, in my opinion, one of the best films ever made.

    I watched Passengers and despite it's poor reviews, I liked it and not for the reasons that most people who would enjoy a movie like this. With sci-fi films for me there has to be a certain check list that must be covered, stunning visual effects, check, futuristic gadgets check, gripping story, maybe.
    I think the writers or writer of Passengers missed a lot of oppurtunities to make this a better story then what was delivered, there is an uniintentional point to this story that they didn't play up very well or didn't do a good job explaining. Spoiler: If they had made more of a point delivering this message they movie could have had a more thought provoking conclusion then its cut short ending. I found the love story to be be corn ball and unrealistic, with a glaring distortion on a reaction to unbelievable selfishness. There is no way that she could forgive him for this kind of selfishness. However if the writers of Passengers made more of a point explaining that if Chris Pratt had not awakened Jennifer Lawerence from her 120 year suspended annimation sleep the entire ship and all its passengers would have died because he needed another person to help him save the ship. Even though that was not his intention for waking her up.. It was a missed opportunity in my opinion. I still enjoyed it.

    Anthropoid was a far better film than I had expected. It felt even better having just re-watched Conspiracy just prior to that. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys WWII historic pieces.

    The Hunt for the Wilderpeople -- what a charming, Wes Anderson-reminiscent little movie. I had a lot of fun with this one.
