    This scared the piss out of me. Bad idea to watch alone at night after your wife goes to bed when you didn't previously know ANY of the details of the case.



    This was almost as terrifying. I struggle with the role identity politics is playing in shaping the current movement against power in this country. I wish it had a smaller role, and I wish the revolution was focused more on class & economic shifts, b/c then racial/sexual/gender inequalities will benefit as well. A rising tide so to speak. But then you watch something like this and you realize how fucked up things are still for many, many oppressed minorities around the world, and how right now at this moment the direct struggle for their literal safety, nevermind rights, must be dealt with at the same time as attacking late stage capitalism.

    i can't stand watching something i like with someone who's not enjoying it (ruins the experience for me) and i can't imagine MAKING someone i like sit through something they don't like.

    any way you could ask him to watch it without you another time so y'all can watch something together you both enjoy?

    Come and See, on the Criterion Channel.

    Hard to recommend, as good as it is. It's a truly draining psychedelic look at war that leaves you feeling depleted and hopeless.

    American Hangman. Avoid it all cost, unless you are having a beer party with friends and want to laugh your asses off. It is baffling how bad and unfinished this movie is.

    It's really true... the attitudes and moods of people around you can completely ruin something. I've had it ruin concerts, movies (especially in the theater), especially comedy shows...

    And it's really because the communal enjoyment of something is really part of the "live experience" that is missing now... and that's what was potentially good about seeing a comedy movie with someone who is laughing along, or a horror movie where people around you are tense.

    It's also hard to not share everything with your significant other. You're always around each other, especially free time. It can be hard to sneak away to watch something, and it can even make you feel resentful if you can't.

    Maybe better just to sit through it.

    I hope he doesn't make you sit through the TV series adaptation.

    So so so SO good. Noir at its best. I loved every second of it and I'll watch it again. And again.

    Things were looking bleak for HBO after the debacle of Game of Thrones final season but they bounced right back with a hat trick: Watchmen, The Outsider and Perry Mason.

    It's mad love, my friends.

    I really, really want to watch this. It is at the top of my list right now. Just have to be in the right head space (and also I don't have Criterion at the moment and I burned through my free trial already ugh).

    So, I watched Palm Springs recently and really enjoyed it. It wasn't, like, a great or amazing movie or anything but it was a fun little movie, cute, kind of funny, very enjoyable. Worth a watch if you have Hulu.

    It's very good, and really it isn't shocking in an upsetting way, it just kinda drags it out of you slowly. It's like a magical realism war movie that just slowly beats you up, but it's nothing you can't pause and walk away from. I've really never seen anything like it. I guess the closest thing that comes to mind is Grave of the Fireflies, but that was a very different thing.

    There's this 2019 movie that sounds like it could be similar. I haven't watched it yet, but it's definitely on my list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Painted_Bird_(film)

    The Boys on Amazon Prime. I'd been meaning to check this out for a while. I watched the first episode about a year ago or so, and while I liked it, I just wasn't in the mood for the bleak humor.

    I'm binge watching it now, and it's great. There's some authentically shocking stuff in this show too. It's kind of amazing that this got made. It has a huge budget (I'm assuming) and it's one of the grittiest comedies I've seen on a mainstream network.

    13 Reasons Why: Pretentious, melodramatic dogshit. It's hard to watch a series, when the very first episode portrays our (main) victim (Hannah) as a condescending brat who thinks she is above everyone else. It's like watching a very very very VERY bad slice-of-life anime series. If this series helped people to combat bullying and other bad things, I am non-facetiously happy for it, but as a tv series, it's just very bad.

    New Planet of the Apes trilogy: I am disappointed in myself that I never gave them a chance when they were released, thus missed out on seeing these in the theaters. My personal ranking is 2-3-1. 1 is the necessary "bad" in the trilogy, which is still a good movie, but the whole plot can be summed in two sentences. I am just glad that they gave Ceasar some proper character development, and not rushed his transition. CGI is pretty wonky by today's standards, 2 and 3 look great. I heard that 3 was the best (and 2nd the worst), but I disagree. I enjoyed 3 a lot, but holy shit, plot holes and deus ex machinas everywhere. The whole trilogy is filled up with some dumb Hollywood tropers, but I understand that it is a necessity if you want to be a box office hit. They went waaay overboard with it, and all I can think of is that they had some time constraints. I loved 2, because all the ape scenes were amazing, and Spoiler: Koba was by far the best villain of the trilogy. In fact, I think he wasn't a villain at all, because he had very very good reasons to think the way he did. Also, he was pretty smart, which made him an equal to Ceasar.

    True Blood (first three episodes): I am pleasantly surprised! I fast-forward the svenes with Suki and the emo vampire, as it's just lame Twilight shit, but the rest of the show is quite entertaining. Tara and Suki's brother are funny as fuck, and there are no annoying side-characters. Yet, I assume.

    The Leftovers (rewatch): I am rewatching this right now, and all I can say is that if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend you to watch it. It took me 3 episodes back then to hook me in, and season 2 is one of the best TV you can get. It's like the more mature big brother of Lost.

    Absolutely agreed. One of my absolute favorite shows of all time. It took me until episode 6 to hook me, and I almost gave up on it twice. But I am so glad I stuck with it. It is one of the most unique shows I've ever seen, and I was so invested in the story and in those characters. God, I miss those characters. If you haven't seen the show it is well worth checking out. I promise, you haven't seen anything quite like it.

    So, I've been watching Dark, which has been on my list forever. For someone obsessed with time travel, this is right up my alley. I am definitely enjoying it so far (almost done with season 1) but I don't love it. It's keeping my interest and keeping me mildly entertained. Like, it's enjoyable enough to watch and I am intrigued enough to want to continue but it's not by any means blowing me away or anything. Maybe it will get better as it goes along, IDK.

    Raised by Wolves on HBOMAX. Ridley Scott directed the first two episodes. Pretty great, so far. Really great, actually.
    Genndy Tartakovsky's Primal, also on HBOMAX, it originally aired on Adult Swim. Prehistoric animated series. Great artwork and action. I just read news of 5 new episodes arriving in October, and the series is being renewed, with 10 episodes in Season 2.
