    Just finished Underworld (had to spread it out over two days) and am currently watching Battle: Los Angeles. Disappointed in myself.

    The Lodge is from the same writer/director team as Goodnight Mommy which remains a personal favorite.
    Vivarium was great. What did you think in MEANT, though? We thought it was about being trapped in suburbia and traditional roles/expectations.

    For you, I recommend She's Allergic to Cats and Horse Girl.
    Throw me a couple of your beloved reccomendations, if you have any.

    Battle: LA is pretty good actually. I liked it way more than I thought I would. Not winning any Oscars but good action and shot well.

    Great question!! Still not sure how I interpreted it, but it perpetually made me think of Womb (see below). I quickly found this interview with the director after watching and this quote regarding its inspiration is interesting: "Finnegan describes him and co-writer Garret Shanley’s inspiration from the film came from the socio-political environment of Ireland in the early 2000s, as the 'economic boom and subsequent crash' of the economy led the building of numerous housing developments that were left empty."

    Oddly enough, Vivarium also reminded me of Womb starring Eva Green. Ever see it? I could only watch it once. Very intense but I remember liking it. Would be curious to know your thoughts!

    Also, while we're talking about isolation movies that stick to one indoor location, I've been recommending The Invitation (on Netflix) and Coherence (should be on Prime Video) to *everyone* I meet for years. I absolutely adore both of those films and they make a great double feature.

    EDIT: I saw Horse Girl a couple months ago! Whoa, that was intense and trippy. I need to read some theories on that still because it left me reeling in a good way. Loved how weird it got. And I'll def check out the other one – thanks for the recommendations! Appreciate it!

    coherence is one of (if not my #1) favorite indie sci-fi films. so well-thought-out and intriguing.

    the invitation was amazing. such a pervasive sense of dread. i watched in months ago and have still been thinking about it.

    Hell yes!! I've completely lost count of how many times I've seen both films. I'm still noticing things in both. <3

    I even flew from NJ to Los Angeles at the beginning of 2020 to see a screening of Coherence with a full crowd (significant since I'd only ever watched on a TV screen til then) that doubled as a cast reunion + Q&A. Writer/director Jim Byrkit was there too and he had some seriously awesome insights.

    When I told him and the cast that I came from the East Coast they were flattered and it turned into a really, really nice and memorable evening. We got to chat one-on-one afterwards and he's a genuinely cool, down-to-Earth dude. Really hoping he's able to get another feature off the ground soon. He so deserves it.

    This was a solid coming of age flick. As I approach 40 it's nice to see how filmmakers update these kind of stories for modern times, and to see that executed well. Pete Davidson is really good playing a piece of shit screw-up. Shocker right? There's some unrealistic silliness in the film's third act with the big party scene, but it doesn't really detract from the overall impact. Nice to see Jon Crier too. Anyone else catch it?

    Watching the second season of Altered Carbon. Very good. Less convoluted than a lot of recent sci-fi.

    Since Iím basically done with the book the wife and I started American Gods. That show is straight eye candy!! Holy cow what a beautiful show. And so far the story is in line with the book, give it take a few slight differences. Really enjoying it but I can see how people who havenít read the book (my wife) could be totally lost.

    During lunch yesterday my son asked me about a soundtrack on his ipod. I asked him to show it to me and it was the Dr. Horrible soundtrack. If you recall he listens to his entire library on random so I asked him if he had listened to the whole thing or just one song. He said he heard one song but liked it to much he made a point of listening to the whole thing. I asked him if he liked it and he said yeah, just wasn't sure if it belonged to something or not. So I went and grabbed the blu-ray and said we'd watch it after.

    God there are so many truly wonderful parts to this thing. That's not to say there aren't some bits that stood out as 'sucks teeth' icky here and there but a lot of that's just mores changing.

    I hope there isn't a sequel, I just don't see how it would work.

    Haha Iíve already seen a few of those scenes. Just finished season one and now we need to start season 2. Since itís in Starz and we donít have that, my choice is either pay to get stars or find the season cheap on dvd. Maybe the latter. Loved season 1. Finished the book up until the point of the epilogue which Iíll either finish tonight or tomorrow. Really enjoying it as a whole, and I think itís safe to say the show is almost unlike anything Iíve seen before. Hoping season 2 delivers and that the upcoming season does too!

    Just finished up Happy! It went to Netflix after Syfy cancelled it. Wow, what a bonkers show. Loved it. Christopher Meloni completely bought in & went ham every episode. Hope someone picks up it up and does season 3, b/c man did they clearly leave it to keep going.

    Starting Runaways seasons 2 & 3 now, preparing for disappointment b/c season 1 fell flat after good start for me. I'll be watching while continuing to add album art to my music collection though, so maybe i wont hate it since i wont be paying complete attention haha.

    if you have a device that can use it, download the PlutoTV app. it's 100% free, there's a ton of on-demand content, and a ton of "live tv" including 24/7 channels for mst3k, rifftrax, rupaul's drag race, and AMERICAN GLADIATORS. we have watched so much old school american gladiators in the last couple days it's ridiculous and glorious.

I'm not much into the teenage angst shows (see also; The Gifted). So I pause the episodes and yell at the characters kinda often... but I'm better now. So much better now.

    Have you watched Cloak & Dagger? It might still be a teenage angst show but the larger scope of the stories made it worth watching for me. S3 of Runways has a crossover episode...

    I was all-in for the Happy show until I read the book. From reading the wiki blurbs on the episodes they seem to do a much better job of moving the story, unlike the book that was a two-book burnout of running at full speed but going nowhere. They spent two books just telling you how much of an asshole Sax is and it goes nowhere. The underlying story was typical Grant Morrison.

    I did however watch the first few minutes of the show - netflix autoplay - and I 100% agree with you on him going ham. wow.

    Happy! the show expands so much more on everything than the comic. Not really comparable. Second season is completely new and original too obviously.

    I basically hate every one of these kids for the dumb decisions they make and want bad things to happen to them. Parents too. Basically no one is likable on the show. I'm watching in the background now while I do other things.

    The raptor is cool for sure. I'm almost done with season 2. I think the show would be infinitely better if THINGS HAPPENED. They spend so many episodes dicking around. These kids all have powers/abilities and barely use them. Standard free TV trap that we would see 15-20 years ago. If they fought alot more and used their abilities more often it would improve the show a ton.

    I have been binge-watching Brad Mondo videos all day. For some reason it's just perfect. And he stays positive even though some people seriously jack up their hair.

    Watched Coherence tonight. Had already seen The Invitation and liked it.

    Coherence was....just okay. I found it distracting how low budget it looked. In the first five minutes I couldnít decide if it was a found footage film or just low budget. Turned out it was the latter. The story was intriguing but it would have been nice to SEE things happening rather than to just hear a group of people talking about them. Would have been nice to see them walk through the dark space into another reality, or to see the comet more often, etc. I found that for the most part, if I had muted the movie and tried to figure out what was happening, I wouldnít have been able to because it didnít show a lot of what was supposedly occurring. Thought the last quarter was better than more of the rest of the movie .

    Maybe I just need to re watch it, but I thought the premise has potential but the execution was totally meh. I liked the invitation much better.

    so apparently if you're a DirecTV subscriber, you get HBOMAX for free. besides the new looney tunes stuff, they have a large number of the classic ones (including the REALLY old black & white stuff). the amount of excitement that welled up inside me and then exploded when i saw that was ridiculous.

    also there are a TON of movies on there (way more than HBOGO) and i'm really looking forward to watching Legendary

    I did not know about the Looney Tunes, cool. I have the blu-ray releases but it'd be nice to be able to watch them without that extra step. Yes, I'm lazy.

    One thing that bugs me about the roll out is that I can't put it on my Pixel tablet but it's on my Pixel phone. And I've heard that it's not on the Amazon Fire Stick? I do have one of the Xfinity Flex devices but I've used it for probably less than an hour total so I don't know if it's there or not. Might try it out though just to see. The interface is so clunky though.
