started watching 11.22.3 (or whatever)

and it is pretty good

a little hiccup in I think episode two when he tries to "alter" things and everything goes against him but im glad they made that better for future episodes

Loved that show. I don't think they got nearly enough fanfare.

I worry the same thing about Dead Pool that happened with Kick Ass.

I don't think they expected much with the first one and it became a cult classic.

Then the studios got involved, the director left and Kick Ass 2 became a giant turdI loved KA1, heard a lot of bad things about KA2 so I didn't watch it till it was on Netflix, and I think it's not that bad. I didn't think it was a waste of 2 hrs at least.

That said, agreed, no need to repeat it in a new season, just have it cured or still a thing, but not addressed in pharmacies.

All told though, i think i'd prefer to just end it. I loved Turturro, and the show itself, but i fear we could get into a True Detective scenario if they force a sequel on us.

I ended up seeing The Danish Girl last night. Alicia Vikander is superb in her role as the conflicted wife of a transgender man transitioning into being a woman, and carries most of the film, conveying a wide range of emotions as she comes to terms with her love's new identity with conviction and believability.

Eddie Redmayne consistently overacts and flutters his eyelashes almost non-stop for two hours. An uninspired screenplay and cold, forced tone cannot save the film for succumbing to pure self-indulgence and desperate Oscar bait (over-dramatic period film dealing with LGBT issues).

5.5/10 purely because of Vikander's inspired, well-deserved Oscar-winning performance. I now understand how Redmayne really annoys a lot of film fans after seeing this one. He's a better actor than this, but he gives off the impression of buying into his own hype. The huge amount of historical inaccuracies in the actual Einar Wegener/Lili Elbe story don't serve to infuse any additional life into this Tom Hooper-helmed period piece.

Nice. It's going to be interesting to see where they take the series once Escobar is killed (we are already in 1993 - the year he dies), as the current storyline cannot be stretched out much farther.

I've also read promising rumours online that the show's writers are going to branch the series out into different areas of the world, so we will be able to see drug trafficking into the United States, poppy/opium production in Afghanistan, and other parts of the globe where narcotics are distributed.

Should be great to watch.

"Jason Bourne" had virtually no story, but I still enjoyed it. Greengrass is a great action director. That said, it's the weakest in the series.
I would have preferred Bourne getting involved in a story to help his country. not to find out more on his identity. That plot was done to death in the first 3.
Him fighting in the opening scene reminded me so much of Rambo 3.

That would be really interesting given that it would focus more on the "New Kings" element rather than the overwhelming presence of Escobar's larger-than-life persona. They could easily delve into the battles between the socialist FARC and right-wing militia groups, the government's approach to reducing the violence, the fall of the drug trade in the early 2000s, etc. There's a lot of material for them to chew on there.

Well, it's probably been 25 years since anyone has cared about something that he was in, and he's in the news now. For a song whose lyrics were essentially "go for it, you have nothing to lose", it's probably better for him to fail miserably than to have simply put out an "ok" performance.

Well, it's probably been 25 years since anyone has cared about something that he was in, and he's in the news now. For a song whose lyrics were essentially "go for it, you have nothing to lose", it's probably better for him to fail miserably than to have simply put out an "ok" performance.

Yeah it could get tough to come up with new original story lines at this point. There would have to be a pretty big shift in direction if they wanted to keep it fresh.

Just got back from Sully. Hanks gives probably the best individual performance in a fairly weak year talent-wise. Really highly recommended. The flight scenes were choreographed beautifully and were incredibly realistic. Really gorgeous cinematography as well.

Eckhart with a consistently strong supporting performance as we've come to expect from him too. Even though you know what's coming and how it ends, Eastwood manages to maintain suspense.

It's not a long film - it clocks in at about one hour and forty minutes - but I was immensely impressed that Eastwood managed to get as much material from the story as he did. One of the best films of 2016 without question.

I like Bill Murray, but hearing him whine about Ghostbusters 2 for so many years (So much better than this shit film) and refuse to do a GB 3 due to it, only to appear in this film is ridiculous.
And Leslie Jones, while it isn't her fault entirely, is so annoying in this movie. It's sad in 1984 they wrote such a better black character than they did in 2016'.

Just watched ARQ ... smart little flick it is. It clearly got its inspiration from "Edge of Tomorrow" with the time loop theme, but it is an entertaining and suspenseful sci-fi movie. Given this is a Netflix movie, which clearly has a very limited budget, I like how Netflix, as always, is smart with their $$, and entertains with fresh and smart plot.

It does have its flaws, and the ending could be better, but for a short (only 1.5hrs) sci-fi movie it's time well spent. Really like what Netflix is doing with its original movies / TV series.

And looking forward to Luke Cage too.

Went to the theatre to watch The Magnificent 7. Should have listened to the reviews.

It's a very average movie that you just can't get emotionally attached, cause there is no character development at all. Which is a shame, cause you got a bunch of very good actors and as hard as they try, there's really nothing for them to get into.

And if you are just looking for a fun western ride, it is alright ... but just OK. Better for rental.

What the **** leverage does Maeve have over those two techs that she can sit there and blackmail and threaten them like she does, when they can just turn her straight the **** off with the flip of a switch and then dismember her and throw her in the trash like ordinary waste? This unexplained illogical thing is just murdering me, so I hope one of you can explain it somehow and that I'm just missing something obvious here.

Easy answer is they don't have the authority to get rid of a bot, but surely they would be smart enough to create a reason to. So you're right.

Well, a couple of reasons. The first being that technicians no longer seem to have the ability to control or turn off Maeve. The fact that she kept waking herself up on the operating table hinted at this, and the scene where the technicians came into her bar to take away her "friend" confirmed it. Every other host in the building froze, but Maeve was completely unaffected by their commands.

She's also not an innocuous piece of company property that they can just toss in a garbage bin. She's a (presumably) very expensive piece of equipment with a prominent role in the existing story-lines, and if she just vanished, questions would be asked and it'd lead right back to them.

But now that she is asking them to make her disappear, and threatening them with death, I do think one or both of those techs is going to be pushed to try and neutralize her somehow, like you're suggesting. And that'll be a test of just how much freedom and control she really has.

Yeah they mentioned not haveing clearance before when she was first doing this.

Also, i'd do what Thandie Newton tells me.

One is going to try and kill her, the other is going to fall in love.

Makes me feel a bit better, but there are still holes that bother me.

They amped up her traits last episode - they could've just as easily dulled her down to nothingness. And if they can do that, they can't just wipe her memory and reasonably hope that she won't remember? These guys don't even really know that the bots are malfunctioning. I mean, let's just see some action taken, an attempt made. All they've done is strengthen this massive threat to them personally and to the park.

2016 is a really shit year in movies thus far. Hopefully the last 6 weeks are solid. This is one of the weakest years in memory.
Midnight Special and Hell or High Water are the only real strong movies I've seen.

even the usually summer blockbusters were bad

maybe it is finally superhero overkill

I'm a movie fan, but the medium has really sucked for a while now.

I can't remember the last time I saw a truly great flick.

Maybe some of the pixars.

There really are too many superhero films. I've stopped watching most of them. There's just no risky, thought-provoking films anymore. The best stuff is on tv. It truly is the golden age of television right now.
A big issue is, you notice how you see so many different studios and production company logos before a film? That's a big issue. The ideas are vetted by so many idiot studio heads. There's no original thoughts.

I completely agree. At the very least they didn't need to up her powers... and it's not clear that they couldn't put her in sleep mode and reset her memory back to default settings.

If we later learn the Asian lab guy is actually a robot then it makes sense.

Even then, it seems implausible that nobody else would notice her the first time she was given a tour of restricted lab areas.

I'm very mixed about the show. The idea is compelling, the aesthetics are top notch and how they get the actors to perform like robots trying to be human is incredible.

But a lot of the plot turns seem hackey and borrowed from B movies.

I am still at least one episode behind.

that also bugs me....the cowboy robots are programmed to getting killed so the action has no stakes. And who cares about the Ed Harris guy...though, there are are some interesting fan theories about him.

Still, the show is relying too much on fan interpretation.

The last few episodes will determine how I feel about the series. Sort of like when you're favourite sports team squeaks into the playoffs...are they one and done or do they start playing better? Changes the way you look back at the whole season.

at first I cared about Ed Harris but now I don't

it is reminding me of the walking dead
good idea but lots of fluff that doesn't matter

entertaining but no GoT

Yeah...they should have kept Ed Harris appearances to a minimum for more mystery...but he's sometimes 40% of the episode.

All these shows wreck it when they reveal too much of the mystery. They should keep it cloudy and layer on the plotlines if they want it to keep going.
