I'll admit it looks very nice, but the writers and director are hacks :catcry:

i read the foundation trilogy so long ago.. i don't remember any of the stuff in the preview being in those stories.. but it was a long time ago.

watched the first episode of The Deuce and thought it was great. I am struggling to get through the 2nd episode. don't think I've lost interest in a show this quickly before. I see all the reviews saying this is an amazing show and makes me think I should stick with it, but...or maybe it's just that I find James Franco slightly obnoxious.

I think the problem with most David Simon productions is they introduce way too many characters very quickly, so you have all these names and faces continually thrown at you, and you're left struggling trying to make sense of it. I remember feeling that way with The Wire when I first saw it. didn't really click for me until maybe the 5th or 6th episode, because then I could remember names and character types, motivations, etc.

it's worth sticking to it but there's some cringe here and there and some really just "aw that's fucked up" type sex stuff.  it's the story of that era in NY and aids and everything else like porn and gentrification..  james franco gets better as it goes imo.. or maybe i just got used to him. ralph maccio is perfectly cast. he's really good and should get more work for things like that. he makes it look easy.  there's some funny shit in it too. it goes by fast. i stopped kind of in the middle then picked it up again to watch that last of it and was glad i did.

I don't like how bombastic that Foundation trailer is, but it is just a trailer. it's been a long time since I read it but I recall Foundation being one of the most cerebral, calculating scifi books I'd ever read (in a good way). most of it is people in a room talking.

Aye it looks nice. No Apple TV account though - will it be available anywhere else?

You might be able to purchase it later on iTunes, but not for quite a while I’d guess.

I borrow those things from "the Library" when it's not available in my local video dealership.

this is a weird show that basically illustrates the futility of the so-called 'war on drugs' with barely any conclusive path to an end. perhaps there is none as it seems keeping the drug war going on is actually a business for all parties involved.

after watching this i realized: the phrase "they all drank the kool aid" is actually wrong. very few of the jones' parishioners willingly drank the poison as a majority were forcefully injected (including about 300 kids). also, the cyanide was mixed with flavor aid which is a kool aid knock off. so the phrase should actually be "they were all forced to ingest flavor aid"

Been watching “What We Do in the Shadows”- it’s good. I watched the first half of the movie a while back and was bored- I do love the documentary format so much, and I love most of what Jemaine and Taika do, but the show is way better IMO.

this is a brilliant "deep" analysis into the depth of a very failed attempt at ridding afghanistan of the taliban and the consequences of that mistake. highly recommended

Just watched it. Really good informative docu.
Thanks for sharing.

Turning Point: 9/11 and the War on Terror (2021) (5 episodes)
What a total clusterfuck it has been, and still is, maybe now even more then ever.
One can't imagine all the misery, loss, hopelessness and anger the Afghan people had to go through.
And now just to reach a point of total abandonment by their so-called allies. Plus the utter fear for what's to come.
An ever-returning disaster.
Also, the next terrorist attack is probably already planned, and set in motion. That's just great.
A big middle-finger to the USA, more specifically its power-hungry war-mongering government, their blinded irrational followers, and their profiteering military-industrial complex. All blood on their hands.
I'm gonna stop ranting.

Finished season 3 of Castlevania, was not expecting to get hit with some hentai in the last 2 episodes, WTF? One of the storylines was kinda wack but the rest of it was damn good. Of all the shows that are trying to capture the magic of Game of Thrones this one has come the closest for me personally. Starting season 4 now, hope the quality holds or improves.

I love this show, the writing has been so strong throughout and the action sequences are just beautiful.

I thought season 3 was a little weaker than the rest, still good overall but the pacing was sort of inconsistent. Season 4 is excellent, IMO it improves on 3 in a lot of ways.
