    Started watching American Horror Story a few weeks ago and we're on season 3.

    Why is there so much smoking on this show? Jesus fucking christ how much did phillip morris pay this show for all that product placement?

    so i technically saw this at the music box in 2018 (almost exactly two years ago), but i was in a bad place. before it started, i had three drinks in about 30 minutes at the bar, so i spent the whole movie drunk and/or asleep. FINALLY (re)watched it tonight and HOLY SHIT i'm so mad it took me this long because i LOVED IT.

    it's not often that a story can employ the "boy loses girl; boy is fueled by revenge" trope and have it actually work, but it really does here. and that score. oh my god.

    Might actually like this one more. It's WAY more like a slasher film and has more visceral action and gore.

    Thumbs up

    Watched this... Netflix Canada has it. Decent, but it does the follow the usual feel-good story routine (including the sad part).

    I was able to get a free 3 month trial to Apple TV+ . I was intrigued by it, so I said why not. the fact that it doesn't have a ton of content is actually what appeals to me, I don't feel overwhelmed and there's still a ton of stuff I want to watch at the same time. I watched a couple episodes of Amazing Stories (pretty enjoyable, loved the original series as a kid) , watched the first episode of Tiny World (fun nature series on tiny animals and insects. great cinematography) , and the first episode of The Morning show (EXCELLENT) . looking forward to delving deeper in more shows and the movies.

    Started to watch this when it was airing and never finished it. Watched Season 1 all the way up to Season 4/Episode 3 and how this show didn't get more attention is baffling. The direction, the writing, performances, camera work, contrast in shots... Everything is so well thought out and serves a purpose.

    Breaking Bad the best show ever? Pshh... Hold Mr. Robot's keyboard.

    Watched "Ready or Not" last night. It was pretty good except for the weird info dumps. They both said too much and too little so that you were left with a sense of "well they seem to know a lot about the curse but also strangely nothing at all". they should have said less and shown more so you make your own inferences, not try to (poorly) spell it out.

    In a movie of body horror there were two that were hard to watch. One I didn't watch because I saw it coming and said no thank you. The screams were enough. *shudder*

    Those same 2 directors are attached to Scream 5.

    I'm currently making my way through the Highlander TV series. It's one of those West Coast USA is obviously Vancouver shows.

    Are they? That's interesting. I could see it working, the two films (at least the first Scream) have some things very similar. For example, one of the deaths by door made me think of Scream very directly.

    Also I found it hilarious that they had to teach Samara Weaving how to drive just for that film. Like, it's a special kind of privileged to make it to 28 and not be able to drive?

    i loved ready or not. here's my review from when i watched it:

    I know this is satire, and there are plenty of extremely fun/funny moments, but holy shit was it upsetting & terrifying. Like I don't remember the last time I watched a movie and had such drastically different reactions to parts of it.

    100%. To go from laughing to laughing uncomfortably to squirming was wild.

    I saw a review that compared it to "The Hunt" in that they are both about rich people hunting the poors and I can see it. It's just that one hid it better from Trump so he didn't tweet about it.

    There's a fair bit to like about the show... you just have, you know, deal the varying levels of production quality to get there... and it's so Vancouver (and other familiar lower mainland filming locations).

    Which season are you in?

    Just finished Season 1. I watched the show growing up, but it was mostly Seasons 4-6 (and Endgame). The amount of musician guest stars in Season 1 is rather impressive. Also, apparently the fictional city in the show is named Seacouver.

    Watched ParaNorman again last night and I was reminded of just how good that flick is. There are so many little things that it does right, it's amazing. And the social commentary by way of monster flick? who hasn't done that, right? But it's scary how it was 'fun' at the time and today, in 2020...whew.

    For example:
    Sheriff Hooper: What do you think you're doing firing at civilians? That is for the police to do!



    But it's still fun! The end with the older brother?



    so great.

    one of my favorite quotes though:

    Neil: Don't make me throw this hummus: It's spicy!
