    Roast of Bruce Willis (Comedy Central), in a climate where you can't say a shit without someone feeling offended, this was quite refreshing, I did not know about these "roasts". Still, quite often it was too much for me and paradoxically would never get aired over here. Funny, cultural differencies or something. :-)

    Just started rewatching Mad Men after playing LA Noire (thank you Aaron Staton), and watching it in the #MeToo era is kind of wild. I think I watched the show with a bit of reverence at the time and had thoughts of "Well, that's just how it was and some women handled it better than others and good on Peggy for taking it all in stride and good on Joan for being a dominant woman and man, Betty is the fucking worst." Now? Oof. I feel for Betty and understand why she acts like a petulant child at times. I'm still not an overall fan of hers, but it sure has changed my perception.

    Watched Downsizing the other day. It tries to be so many different films throughout and I'm not sure if any of them really shine. It starts out with Ove the Scientist and they're going to save the world and everyone's happy! Then it's suddenly about human rights and how the little people shouldn't have the same rights as the big people and Mr. Tanaka getting drunk in the bar trying to start a fight. And then it was a body horror thing where they were shaving everyone and giving everyone enemas and taking everyone's fillings out of their mouths. And I'm sure other things, but thankfully it was just the fillings.

    I could keep on going but it was a weird juxtaposition and that was maybe 20-30 minutes in. Though it was funny when my wife made a crack about "oh so who's going to shrink themselves to take care of all of these people" and then 15 minutes later we're in the slums with the people who were shrunk because a job is a job and then even later in the mini slums.

    Kristen Wiig is good in her role but I'm pretty sure she was cast because of one of her SNL characters because she shows up with a bald head and missing an eyebrow that really reminded me of her on the show.

    I wish they would have subtitled the languages more. On the flip side of that, I was annoyed that when they went to the OG settlement in Norway everyone was speaking English instead of their native language.

    The best part of the film was that the sets looked appropriately tiny, and I don't know if they used tilt-shift to shoot or something but you definitly got a feeling that these were models being walked around, not just 'oh look they're tiny woo'. That by itself was pretty impressive.

    The one part that I couldn't get past was the miniature technology. I know it's suspension of disbelief and all that but I just don't think you can shrink LCDs like that. The actual tech sure but aren't LCDs all one size?

    Just remembered: The accent from Hong Chau at times made it sound like she was Vietnamese by way of the Deep South. There were so many times where it just sounded like a Georgia accent that I had to finally ask my wife if she was hearing it as well.

    Watched both of the Jack Reacher movies. I'm not sure if Cruise was trying to be gritty or what but something was off. I enjoyed the story of the first one but not the acting so much and the second one I like the acting more but not the story (as much... started off well but then seems to just lose steam).

    Went and saw The Meg yesterday, it's a fun movie. Really different from the book but I was expecting that.
