Bryan Cranston was so phenomenal in Breaking Bad he brought out the best in all the ancillary cast. His wife was annoying but even she grew strong. The son even more annoying. Heck everyone grew because of Cranston. I don't know if anyone can approximate the role he played.

He was so edgy and entertaining. Real shame that show was brought to an end. Just such a great show. Wish I had a brain chip that erased all prior knowledge of the show, so that I could just watch it once a year.

The entire episode was pretty sparse on actual documentary footage, and really put the director in the spotlight (which seemed more than a little self-serving) - but the interview and the final 10-15mins of the episode were intense. Durst's visceral reactions were very real - though he did manage to keep relative cool for the remainder of the interview.

Cool to watch - but my big fear is that this was the birthing of the high-concept "true-crime" series.

..also, the previously unfound box of interview tapes and letters SHOULD have been brought to the police - not to a filmmaker. This serves as a dangerous precident, though I suppose it was California where everyone wants to be "known". Felt a bit too much like "vigilante justice" to me.

JackBurton

I wonder what the time frame was from when the letters were discovered to the police being contacted.

According to the New York Times, Jarecki and Smerling began talking to law enforcement officials in 2013 but had to walk a fine line between their journalistic pursuit and the desire to help investigators in the long-cold cases.

The Times also reported that Jarecki and Smerling didn’t discover that they had the audio recording of Durst’s rambling, damning comments in the bathroom until two years after the interview was conducted.

Immitation game is a good movie. I enjoyed the respect my wife developed for Alan Turing. Sadly, that's a name not many people actually knew.

Boyhood....well I get that it was shot over a decade and really appreciate that, but I found it downright boring. It was more of a documentary, but it was a doc about normal people living normal lives. I really got bored.

Just got back from Cancun, and I actually like the selection of movies on the flights now... (God those of you near 40 remember having 1 8inch tv every few rows and you'd have to watch whatever they saw fit, or the pull down movie screen and the headphones that literally were plastic tubes that funnelled the sound coming from the arm rest... located conveniently next to the ash tray in each seat)

But I finally saw Boyhood, Nightcrawler, and Whiplash.

And holy cow, I don't know why Whiplash wasn't a top contender for best picture, editing, and director.
I loved that movie. That relationship was amazing to see it go through what it does. To me it's the best movie of the year.
I liked Boyhood... I thought it captured alot of those small moments that we realize seem to happen to all of us boys, from staring at a dead bird at the side of your house, to getting to that age where you think you've figured it all out and everyone else is an idiot. I also though Ethan Hawke was the better supporting actor in that role than Arquette.
I found Gyllennhall in Nightcrawler awesomely creepy. I kind of saw in him that he could play a joker type of character. I know they have Leto doing it for the Suicide Squad movie, but I think Gyllenhall has the chops. Loved his acting in that movie.

I'm buying Whiplash on blueray just to watch that again, in 5.1 sound.

Yep. I watched the whole thing, but that show's jumped the shark. A lot of what made the show compelling for me (FU's scheming to rise to power, the side-story of the journalists trying to dig up the bodies he'd left in his wake) just isn't there anymore.

And the new storylines (him trying to hold on to power, him vs. Claire, him vs. knockoff Putin) just fell flat.

It's been a great season overall. This was an okay episode, but I get it. It was a bridge episode, between so last weeks gruesomeness, the priest not being nice and next weeks mayhem. Had to set a few things up, thus Daryl and Aaron with the newly dead. Rick losing his manure and so on. The only question is how high the live body count will be next week, and who is part of the count.

I think it does refer to the Wolves we saw in Richmond. We will see them next week.

The real baddy is coming next year, a dude named Negan. Apparently this is the guy rumoured to be him. An actor named Kevin Durand (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0243806/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t20).

Here is the character (based on Henry Rollins apparently) and the actor. Some resemblance for sure.

Still just a rumour.

I don't know, he is less of a sociopath than the Governor. IN the comics, in many was the governor does many worse things, sex with a zombie, cannibalism, rape, but they toned down that aspect while keeping him crazy.

Negan is very intelligent, and while he does a lot of things, he is very cold and calculating, while almost always in control. That can come across on tv a lot better than some of the stuff the Governor did.

It is still really good man. Season 3 really set up some new conflicts and dynamics now that they are in the White House. No longer can Frank and Claire manipulate from the shadows, they are in the public eye. There normal tactics do not work and there is blow back on them.

For HOC - the other 2 seasons Frank was working towards something, with goals, setbacks and triumphs. Thinking of it as the rise and fall of Frank Underwood, first two seasons were the rise, and the 3rd season was the fall. Virtually nothing to root for in season 3.. much like the Leafs at this point.

Every single associate but Stamper (a murderer) and his press secretary remain. Everyone else has left him.

Guess it's lonely at the top. However I just don't buy the complete lack of respect everyone had for him. Frank was completely ruthless in the first 2 seasons but still had to pander to the president. No one seemed to think that this was required when he was the pres.

Agreed, then the beauty of season 3 is seeing him at the top, his goals accomplished if you will. Then seeing him struggle with dealing with congress and his own party. He is not able to bully and smash his way through like he was when he was in congress. Lets not forget about Claire, she has her own goals and season 3 really brings that to light.

If Season 2 "jumped the shark", then season 3 is a course correction.

Just got back from Cancun, and I actually like the selection of movies on the flights now... (God those of you near 40 remember having 1 8inch tv every few rows and you'd have to watch whatever they saw fit, or the pull down movie screen and the headphones that literally were plastic tubes that funnelled the sound coming from the arm rest... located conveniently next to the ash tray in each seat)

But I finally saw Boyhood, Nightcrawler, and Whiplash.

And holy cow, I don't know why Whiplash wasn't a top contender for best picture, editing, and director.
I loved that movie. That relationship was amazing to see it go through what it does. To me it's the best movie of the year.
I liked Boyhood... I thought it captured alot of those small moments that we realize seem to happen to all of us boys, from staring at a dead bird at the side of your house, to getting to that age where you think you've figured it all out and everyone else is an idiot. I also though Ethan Hawke was the better supporting actor in that role than Arquette.
I found Gyllennhall in Nightcrawler awesomely creepy. I kind of saw in him that he could play a joker type of character. I know they have Leto doing it for the Suicide Squad movie, but I think Gyllenhall has the chops. Loved his acting in that movie.

I'm buying Whiplash on blueray just to watch that again, in 5.1 sound.

Whiplash was pretty dope. Funny though, at least for me...its normally the type of movie I would watch 5 minutes of and turn off, but because J.K Simmons was in it, which I didn't know when I started watching, I gave it more of a chance, and his first scene reeled me in.

Its a really good movie considering its pretty much entirely driven by a student / teacher relationship that doesn't include florida women giving teenage boys blowjobs in the parking lot.

Pretty bang on review......although as I mentioned before, I didn't find it particularly "slow" myself, and actually enjoyed the pacing and how it set up the final arc of the season....but the review itself is otherwise virtually my exact take on it. As someone who used to live in Florida for extended periods, it was right in my sweet spot, as the scenery and atmosphere of Florida was a pretty valuable character in and of itself. Was a nice departure from 99% of series that are based in cities.

Teen drama, typical of the CW.

The wife and I really enjoy both Arrow and Flash. Arrow is better imo. Especially the first 2 seasons.

If someone was starting both from scratch I'd suggest watching the 1st 3 seasons of Arrow first. Then start watching Flash season 1 and Arrow season 4 episode for episode, starting with Flash. There is a bit of crossover between the shows and Flash airs the night before Arrow each week.

I'm pretty sure, judging by the fact that he mentioned the mini-series, that Montana's talking about the new BSG series, which aired from 2004-2009 and has excellent special effects.

Great show too. It took years of a few people pestering me to see it before I finally watched it a year or two ago. It's got some corny moments, but overall it's a great story with some pretty compelling and thought-provoking plots.

Yes i know he's talking about the mini-series, which were much better.

I was talking more about the TV series (which in itself was a remake of the TV series in the 70's I believe?) which some have suggested to me and I had a hard time getting into initially because its low budget and dated sets ... but once you get into it, the TV series has a lot more details that the mini-series didn't cover, and is well worth the extra time.

EDIT - actually, you are right, the revamped 4-seasons TV series started in 2004, which isn't that old at all ... it does look dated though which made me think it was a 90's show ;)

Just got to it this weekend myself and did not care for it at all....understood much of the science being discussed/hypothecized; but just wasn't drawn in by the writing at all.

As far as Sci-Fi goes, I liked the 3 hour miniseries of Battlestar Galactica exponentially more.


Also watched PT Anderson's 'Inherent Vice' over the weekend and was a little let down by it. Given how much I've loved everything PTA since 'Hard Eight' was pretty bummed by how lackluster I found it. That said, i was super baked while watching it, so maybe I just need a rewatch to properly appreciate it.

Also saw 'Nightcrawler' recently and thoroughly enjoyed it...lived up to and exceeded any expectations I had for it.

yeah no a huge fan of Interstellar ... I understand the plot and i get what the movie's trying to say but don't get the big hype ... it's ok, but just ok ;)

Great show too. It took years of a few people pestering me to see it before I finally watched it a year or two ago. It's got some corny moments, but overall it's a great story with some pretty compelling and thought-provoking plots.


BSG is a GOOD sci-fi series. It has some pretty interesting and pretty provoking ideas too.

The low-budget set and the dated CG make it hard to get into this series initially though (that's over 20 years old now?) ... once you're in it you can appreciate the acting and the plot

I'm only a few episodes in post mini-series but yeah, I'm thoroughly impressed with the calibre of the writing the philosophical questions & issues the crews are faced with.

...and oddly, like a really well written comic that might not have the most technically proficient art (Sweet Tooth, Frank Miller Batman, etc) the lower level special effects kind of add to the charm of the show, versus take away from it.

They did some smart writing to get around their low budget as well.....like the BSG being void of the newer computer systems at Adama's insistence, etc.

It still has its fair share of cheesy lines & poor b level acting at times.....but Edward James Almos kills it anytime he's on screen.

Finished Bloodline last night. So good.

I thought Bloodline would be right up my ally but I can't get into it (after 2 episodes anyway). I love the Floridian world it occupies, and the seedy underbelly, but I'm not really drawn in by the characters.

Structurally it's a lot like Damages, but there's no one holding it all together like Glenn Close.

Maybe I need to give it more time.

The $$ is really in the good plot, the deep philosophical questions and the some good lines. ANd yes, Captain Amada's a darn good actor. He literally carries the show.

The wife and I really enjoy both Arrow and Flash. Arrow is better imo. Especially the first 2 seasons.

If someone was starting both from scratch I'd suggest watching the 1st 3 seasons of Arrow first. Then start watching Flash season 1 and Arrow season 4 episode for episode, starting with Flash. There is a bit of crossover between the shows and Flash airs the night before Arrow each week.Arrow and Flash are alright, but like everything from CW it's been 'teen-izied' which is too bad.

Arrow, Flash and Agents of SHIELD are 3 series I had expectation in before they came out, and was pretty disappointed in them in the end.

Definitely a fair point. The guy who plays "Lee Adama" is the best example of that, IMO. He's got to be one of the worst actors I've ever seen in a starring role on a successful TV show. Then, you contrast that with James Edward Olmos, who's pretty fantastic as "Bill Adama".

Really? I saw it in Imax last night and thought it was one of the best films in the series. They continue to up the ante in terms of action sequences, the fight choreography was great, and they did a very respectful job of handling Paul Walker's mid-filming death, with a fitting tribute and send-off at the conclusion of the film. For what the franchise honestly is (awesome popcorn fare) I think that they've done an effective job of creating emotionally resonant, well-developed characters.

I'm biased, because I'm a big fan of Daredevil in general...specifically Miller & Bendis' runs on the title.......but I think this might be one of the best comic book to movie/television adaptations that I've seen.

They've taken many of the key elements from Frank Miller's 'Man Without Fear' run......which is to Daredevil what 'Batman: Year One' was to the caped crusader.

http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/0/40/4316004-daredevil-marvel-netflix-b-main-final-618x400.jpg



They've got some really really phenomenal source material to mine from with Miller's seminal 6 part mini-series "Born Again" as well as Brian Michael Bendis, Ed Brubaker, and Mark Waid's runs on the book....to really make some high quality stuff over the coming years.

Looking forward to how it plays out, and also has me pretty stoked for the Luke Cage, Jessica Jones (Alias), and Iron Fist series. Should be some real quality stuff coming down the pipeline from them, given how well it appears they did this Daredevil adaptation.

It's got some really graphic scenes as the series goes on......


If you want to get your kid into Daredevil though, Mark Waid's current run on the character is pretty kid friendly and you can pick the trade paperbacks up pretty cheap.

If you're looking for a good introduction to some other superheroes though, Darwyn Cooke's "New Frontier" is really damn good, either in comic book form, or the animated film....

I wouldn't be surprised if that's the only straight-up "flash-back" they use. That prophecy is pretty central in the recipient's actions and thinking in the books, so I guess the show-runners felt that it was important to include it, and without the character's inner monologue, a flash back was the only way to do it.

There may, however, be other glimpses into the past, courtesy of a certain character in the series.
