    Struggling my way through season 1 of Truthseekers the new Nick Frost, Simon Pegg series. This is largely a Nick Frost vehicle, with a few brief appearances of Pegg to help sell the series. So yeah, barely any humour, unlikable characters..thin plots, zero budget. Shame really. It might change in the last three episodes but i'm not expecting much.

    Just started my second runthrough of The Leftovers. One of my absolute favorite shows of all time and I am super excited to watch it again.

    Finished watching "Peppermint", I liked it and would watch a sequel. Is it a story we don't already know, no... no, there have been plenty of movies with the same sort of story although it was nice not to have an over-the-top villain that distracted from the story. I tend to enjoy the Garner roles where she's action-y anyways...

    We watched "The Dead Don't Die" last night. I'm still not sure what to think of the film. There's one point near the end where I just thought "oh, sure, why not that as well" and it didn't even phase me really. The first time we all looked at each other and tried to figure out what was going on was for "Oh it's our theme song" because what?

    Also how did Sturgill Simpson get billing in the opening credits for three seconds? I'm sure there were others but his was the only name I recognized that had a very short cameo.



    And Selena Gomez was not good. Probably the only part of the film I could point to and say it was bad in comparison to the rest.

    I do not often seek out videos with magic or illusion acts, but I was bumbling around YouTube today and came across this which I think is most amazing! It's from a few years ago so perhaps everyone has seen it?

    I know I'm going into full rambling, but man, it's my all time favourite. I've been trying to make people around me watch it, but nobody went farther than the pilot. I've never seen something alike out there, be that aesthetically or scenaristically (can't say this one out loud) speaking. Before watching it, I felt so bad asking myself the very same question they are asking. Now I know I'm not the only one, and that feels good. Such a shame it has been cancelled.

    EDIT: Wait, are you talking about the Channel 4, or the Netflix series?

    I've seen the Channel 4 version and have a lot of reservations about the new one.

    Why?

    I'm not sure I'll have a go at it. I know I won't be objective and be over-critical about it. Just like with the Millenium movies. Actually, right now, I can't think of any reboot I've appreciated (except The Lord of the Rings).

    Ah. Again, I don't think I'll watch it, but I'd still be curious of what people think of it.

    Mostly because the trailer looks like they saw a good idea and said "but what if we didn't do any of that". Also exactly the "I know I won't be objective and be over-critical about it."

    That OG first season is brilliant. All killer and no filler from the direction to the acting to everything and that's going to be hard to top.

    I remember saying that when I first saw Oz, then Breaking Bad, then Sherlock, then Broadchurch, then Black Mirror, then True Detective, then Utopia.

    Oh, sorry. What's OG? Google wasn't very helpful, except if it's The Last O.G. you are talking about? (never heard of it though)

    Just watched first episode of Utopia on Amazon Prime last night, and we thought it was great! We were never aware of any previous versions (what is channel 4?) so we were able to appreciate the show for what it is, without the burden of comparison.

    Half right. slang for original gangster, or IOW the original version.

    Watched the first "Fallen" movie last night. A lot to go through, but man the body count here was tremendous. Quite a few places where they had no idea what they (the people running that gorgeous CG saw mill) were doing. a C130 shooting at civilians? impressive. putting normal bullet-sized holes in the civilians? not as much. And I realise that there's a rating at issue as well but come on.

    That aside, it was alright. not great, not good, but alright. some weird choices on questions they'd answer and others they'd just leave on the ground. like, "how did the bad guys know about Cerberus if it's so top secret?" and "how did they get this Gatling-gun defensive battery from us?" and "How did they hijack a C130 in the first place?" But then I figure that's too many questions for a film that is basically base emotions set loose.



    Also it's really weird thinking that this was made during a time when we ostensibly 'liked' the president.

    Watched Love Actually this weekend as well. I think I fell somewhere in the middle of it all for heart? It was alright. My son was straight up lost watching it and was confusing people for other people left and right. I assume that's because he wasn't actually paying attention more than anything else, but it did make me want to watch Pulp Fiction with him just to see what happens.

    I was annoyed by the horny dude who went to the US because a) he was annoying and b) I recognized him but couldn't figure out why. Turns out he was in a show called Citizen Kahn (which, until just now, I thought only had one season; damn British shows) as the manager of a mosque. also when he met those girls it was very awkward, and then I saw the credits and January Jones was credited. Ah yes.

    Also I guess it's nice to finally see the inspiration for the SNL Hillary Clinton skit.

    Peak lockdown behaviour.i got back into Big Brother. rewatched best seasons, lot of episodes, not watched it since about 2007, i got immersed in it mostly UK version with some of the US recent ones.
    a website exists that had every episode from every series of every English speaking country.

    its not hard to see how this show became a phenomenon
    The UK version was massive Series 7 from 2006 is amazing to rewatch, has an international cult following too, riveting reality TV, Nikki Grahame was hilarious. brilliant cast. so much going on if it ever went on Netflix it would be massive. only rewatched some of the series made between 2004-2010, guilty pleasure but at its best it could be fascinating.

    its still big in the US which is interesting, dont know if it evolved, proves format still works, i don't think that version reached the rollercoaster highs of the one in UK which got 10 million viewers a night at its peak, interesting to see if it makes a comeback,

    I will watch Gerard Butler try to take back a Burger King if that's what it comes to.
