    Watched History Channel's Project Blue Book, which started this week. It was quite good. Aiden Gillen (Littlefinger on Game of Thrones) stars in it.

    I watched it too and I can tell I'm really going to enjoy it. Gillen is excellent at playing Dr Allen Hynek, the real life astronomer and eccentric nerdy nerd the Air Force hired to be part of the titled Project Blue Book, as the reasonable scientist who would offer perfectly rational explanations to UFO sightings. It did not turn up too good for the Air Force because Hynek was a scientist with ethics who wanted to find real answers to the events he was called in to investigate. He's the one who came up with the "Close Encounter" scale, by the way.
    @elevenism you should really check it out; it's right down your alley.

    So I picked up the soundtrack to the movie "Judgement Night" last year ... and now I'm watching the movie.

    It's terrible.

    Liked Everlast's character and look. And what was with the close-ups on Leary?

    Ok, so while I LOVED the first episode of Project Blue Book, I'm a little frustrated with the fact that it's "based on true events," but is VERY misleading in some aspects, and hyperbolic in others.

    The actual truth about Blue Book is crazy enough, and I wish they would have just stuck to real life events, or, at least, purported/reported real life events.

    Don't get me wrong: I expect to LOVE the show. The story is thrilling. The acting is stunning and the sets and camerawork are lovely. We will, without a doubt, tune in every week.

    It's just that there is already enough disinformation out there.

    I was really hoping this would at least be up to par with the original (not that it was perfect, but I enjoyed it), but this was a disappointment. In case you don't remember or didn't know, before they announced what this movie was, they billed it was "The Woods," and if you ask me the movie that COULD have been "The Woods" looks much more interesting than this ended up being. Shame, too, because that kind of a bait and switch could be really clever, but it's totally wasted if the movie falls flat.

    @ImTheWiseJanitor , how did you like the second one?

    Regarding the first one, I wonder if you'd have liked it more if you'd seen it in the theater and been around for the birth of the found footage craze?

    There was a fake documentary about the lore on, the History Channel, I think, back when it was actually to be trusted and about history. So, after seeing TBWP in an art house theater when it first came out, there was this doc that claimed that all the history of the region was true, although the movie obviously wasn't "real."
    THAT shit made it a lot more frightening.

    As for me, I liked the new one and the second one, but, at the same time, I was disappointed by the new one myself.

    Hopefully before long, another sequel comes along and just fucking KILLS it. I'm a sucker for that whole story.

    feeling a little low, these movies are comforting as my daughter and I used to watch them together, when she was little

    Watched Fyre Fraud on Hulu last night and wow. I think the biggest takeaway from that is that there's likely another Fyre Festival copycat out there and that you 100% should NOT trust social media influencers on anything.

    I liked the first one! I remember seeing it when I was itty bitty and being so terrified because I believed it was real. Saw it again years later and thought it was a great entry in the early found-footage days. They could’ve even learned a lot from the first film and built on that in the reboot. But as far as the second one goes, I remember the moment I saw the trailer and that it was gonna do away with the found footage aspect, and completely ignored it. Is it worth the watch? If I find it somewhere I’ll have to check it.

    Caught this the other day too! What a trip. I knew things were gonna be pretty nuts, but holy cow. The interview clips with Billy were gold, from the awkward silences to the unjustified defiance that he did anything wrong.

    Oh, I know you said you enjoyed it, but I figured that, had you seen it as a teenage horror fan, you would have fucking LOVED it.

    The second one, I think it's badass, but it got bad reviews. It's a sort of meta thing about the town being flooded with people who were excited about the first movie, and a kind of shady dude who does guided tours and such. And horror ensues. I loved the first one so fucking much that I ALSO loved the second one. I know that part of it was just that it was a new Blair Witch project movie that came out a few years after the first one, so I already assumed I would love it. I saw it with rose colored glasses and I think I still do. I also remember that my date and I snuck whiskey into the theater , so that probably smoothed any rough edges. Honestly, I'm not so sure it's MUCH better than the most recent one, but id definitely say it's worth a watch if you dig the lore and such.

    I hope that, in a few years, someone comes along and just KILLS it with a fourth one.

    Shit is brilliant. I'm on episode 2 now, probably gonna blow through season 1 tonight.

    Edit: As a maintenance guy by trade, I'm loooving the segment about making educational pornography that teaches people how to do stuff like unclog drains, repair doorknobs, all that stuff. The number of full-grown adults who aren't familiar with how to do something like reset a breaker switch is absolutely staggering, and I say this from experience. It's good shit to know! Very interesting idea.

    Just finished watching "They Live" ... while I appreciate the message of the movie and beefcake Roddy Piper, let's just say I think the dialogue could have been a whole lot better.
