    I have never seen the first Blade Runner, minus a few scenes here and there. I heard how kvlt it was and I did like the few scenes I had seen.

    I bought Blade Runner and 2049 over this weekend so my wife and I could dive into that universe. I didnt like the first one. I almost feel bad for not liking it, but I thought it was just, what the fuck. It was the final cut, was I supposed to watch the original theatrical version?

    I hope 2049 is not like this.

    no, the final cut is generally agreed upon as the definitive version of the film.

    what didn't you like about it?

    I felt like things rushed a bit fast. Things happen right after another and I felt like The movie didnt give me an option to give a crap about anyone.

    The movie is beautiful for its time and I liked the score. But over all, I didnt enjoy it.

    Maybe after 2049 I will give it another go.

    Sorry for the “double post”. My wife and I finally got to watch Blade Runner 2049, and its by far superior to the first one. Great movie.

    Cast A Deadly Spell
    it's 1948 and fred ward plays hard-boiled P.I. phil lovecraft, who's hired by david warner to retrieve the necronomicon. also featuring julianne moore and clancy brown. a wonderful blend of horror, comedy, and noir. on amazon prime & hbogo

    also started watching The Magicians, which i like despite most of the characters being extremely unlikable.

    Finally getting around to watching The Leftovers. It took about 4 episodes in for me to get around to what they are really trying to accomplish with this. I like it. "Guest" is my favorite episode thus far.

    on friday night, my wife and i watched "ghost watch" on shudder. it's a BBC thing from 1992 that people basically thought was real when it aired. it obviously pre-dates paranormal activity and other such things, and if you didn't know it was a fictional thing (and believed in ghosts/hauntings) you would think it was a live BBC special that just happened to capture a ton of creepy shit happening. i was legitimately terrified by it (i had to turn on all the lights on my way back to the bathroom halfway through the movie, and refused to turn them off when i came back out).

    then we watched "the ritual" last night with our friends and it was awesome. exactly what i want out of a horror movie. i was enthralled the entire time. i also yelled/jumped at least 5 or 6 times...including once when a tent was unzipped (never gonna hear the end of that one).

    Bomb City. Found it on the internets while browsing for some thing to watch. It was later in the night when i watched it but it i gotta say it sorta hit me right in the feels. Reminded me a lot of Suburbia in terms of Punk movies.

    FINALLY got around to watching Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and I loved every minute of it. Inventive, fast, witty, it really is a shame that it didn't make anywhere near the budget for a sequel nod. The comic like visuals is really well done here.

    Pretty much found this the same way. Was looking for something to stream one night a couple weeks ago, grabbed my attention as I like movies about weirdos and misfits. Was a good watch for sure. Wasn't sure where the direction was going at first, but it sucks you in once you realize what's going on. It's even more surreal that it was a real story. That's sad, but not too surprisingly. Was utterly disgused with the final outcome of the movie. But that's just what being a weirdo misfit is all about. Quite disgusting how they'd basically let the "jocks" get away with anything. Underage drinking and open fires etc but the punks do some small thing and they beat them down for it. Guess it doesn't help that it took place in Texas.

    Having the flu has destroyed my weekend, but it’s at least given me a chance to binge Netflix all weekend and not feel bad about it. I’m 7 episodes through ‘Altered Carbon’ right now. So far, pretty good.

    season 3 of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is destroying me. i never thought i would be bawling watching a show that i had previously been using as background material.

    Yeah, seriously. I pride myself on being a big strong manly man immune to overt displays of emotion, but an episode in CXG's third season managed to make me literally laugh and cry in the span of a few minutes, which is a first. So unusual to see such a capable tackling of mental illness.

    It's not a background watching show for me though, thought it was inspired right from the start. Only came close to being a background thing halfway through the second season, but that slightly dull period is a distant memory now that's been wiped away by an utterly brilliant year. Crazy Ex is one of my favourite shows at the moment.


    ...On the flipside, after 6 and a half years, I've given up on Homeland. That was my favourite show at one point... It's had its ups and downs, but almost exclusively downs over the last year or two. The shark jump, however, is easier to pin down. The exact moment I decided to stop watching my former favourite show was: "Play with your titties."

    y'know, I'm not usually the kind of person to comment on celebrity fashion, but the dress Nicole Kidman wore to the oscars looks like a cross between an emoji and something you use to clean your toilet.

    Just watched Kingsman: The Golden Circle

    Certainly not as good as it’s predessor. Still, I’m a sucker for these films. Very enjoyable.

    Saw this one last night. One of the more beautiful romantic comedies I’ve come across. I put it right up there with (500) Days of Summer and Rushmore. Fantastic performances all around.

    Watched My Friend Dahmer today. Really fascinating film that just got chilling and more disturbing by the end. Does a nice job of showing the development of a madman in his teen years. Really nice job in adapting this graphic novel that was of course based on a horribly true story. Also, Ross Lynch is the spitting image of a younger Dahmer:

    I think it was mentioned somewhere already, Lucky (2017). Beautiful Harry Dean Stanton's "good-bye", lovely slow pace, and surreal Lynch talking about tortoise.

    Also ontopic, for some time every evening I watch an episode or two of Two and a Half Men on Amazon Prime and I like even the newer seasons, it has become my safe place, whatever happens during the day, in the evening I'll watch this. :-) And it worries me a bit if fun like this or How I Met Your Mother will still be acceptable in the ultra-correct future.

    I hadn’t seen him in anything else honestly, but trust me when I say that his performance was stellar.

    Finally got around to seeing this one. Liked it a lot more than I thought I would. As far as Trent & Atticus’ score, it was good, but certainly not as prominent as their previous three films.
