Mindhunter season 2 was good, not as great as season 1. It peaked at the Manson episode to me but then just kind of crawled to the end, not exactly badly but unfulfilling. It regained a little strenght in the end tho.

Rick and Morty linda did the same.

anyone else looking forward to Underwater?

I'm a sucker for creature flicks

It looks interesting.  I think that I might rent it when it comes out on dvd.

I am currently looking forward to the new Grudge film.  I liked the others a lot, so hopefully the new installment will not disappoint.

everything I seen about the Grudge film says it's absolutely terrible, I had a couple friends go see it last night and they almost walked out, they said it was that bad, and they like everything

Watched Zum Goldene Handschuh (sp?) last night. Mixed feelings about it — the filmography and whole approach was a bit too polished and clinical. Works for a film based on real events, I guess. Great performance from the main actor, and some of the female actresses.

The comparisons to The House that Jack Built make no sense whatsoever to me. This guy is about as far from some genius criminal mastermind as it is possible to be: no planning, no organization, alcoholic and apparently suffering from some mental/neurological issues. The portrayal of filth, misery and dysfunction in this film seems obviously a much more accurate portrayal of serial killers than the juvenile Hannibal Lecter fantasy of THtJB.

That is not a good sign.  I will just wait for it to come out on dvd, I think.

Dolemite is My Name - It is good but I was expecting more, don't know exactly what tho, but it was just so "feel good/lightweight" that it seemed like a regular Eddie Murphy comedy... A good one, not the crap he is doing lately, but it echoed a lot of "Bowfinger" feel to me - a movie that I watched ages ago and really liked - so it was a weird viewing experience. But I do reccomend it in the end.

Iron Fist and Kung Fu Kicks - This one is awesome, the doc covers a lot of ground and could easily be 4X the lenght (would be great as a series). Even being so extensive it does not feel much vague because it is fast paced and audio/video are really well used to convey ideas and information, at the expense of the credit subtitles for who's talking that are so fast I could not keep up sometimes. Anyone interest in Fighting movies from oldschool no DTV and recent internet stuff will find something to like, I guess.

The Toys That Made Us Season 3 - Probably my favorite series right now. It is just non stop nerdy fun and nostalgia, even for shit I didn't care about like My Little Pony and Barbie (earlier season). Everything seens well researched, all the talking heads are wacky and interesting and even the worst jokes are passable.

Patton Oswalt: Annihilation - Ok. "Talking For Clapping" was better and this one does have all the gravitas with his wife dying and personal stuff but in the end felt a little "middle of the road" to me, not achieving greatness neither as comedy, dramedy or something else.

The Witcher - mindless goofy shit that doesn’t take itself seriously at all - hugely entertaining!! I would read the books after watching this season. TBQH I really enjoyed it.

Netflix Dracula - actually pretty good. Watched two episodes this week and saving the third for the weekend. Not for “purists”!

Easy (Netflix) - some episodes were okay, some were really bad. It took me like 3 months to finish it but I somehow had to see a resolution. I wouldn’t suggest it to my worst enemy.

Back to Life (BBC) - really interesting show about a woman getting out of prison and re-adjusting to life on the outside. I’m enjoying it, but finding it’s a good story sort of diluted with the comedy stuff.

It feels a little all over the place. Bang is great, though.

Uncut Gems. An easy 10/10 for me. Perfect photography, set design, costuming. Totally intense and anxiety inducing story. A surprising new side to Adam Sandler, and absolutely incredible music by Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never).

Third episode was definitely out there. I did enjoy their take on it, it was super weird. Definitely had that same visual style as Sherlock which was pretty great. I dunno if I loved the ending but what can you do?

In that case, Parasite will probably be a 12/10 for you when you eventually get to see it...

Everyone's talking about Sandler being snubbed for an Oscar nomination, but how come no-one is talking about John Travolta's performance in The Fanatic?

Yeah, eminently quotable  - "I HAVE TO POO".

I'm realllly excited for Parasite. I can't pretend I'm a film buff, I'll basically just watch anything A24 makes!
