I love the 80s atmosphere in Stranger Things... regardless of how good or bad the rest of the show is. I enjoyed the third season enough that I don't regret watching it.

That little black girl was nothing but annoying...I was mildly tempted to stop watching the show once she became a part of the story.

I did think it was a little odd that everyone was in a bad mood for no real reason. Also that the monster attacks a shopping mall then runs down the road after them, yet no one else witnesses it.

Other than some hiccups like that, the show was enjoyable but not as fun as the first season.

Apparently the new Dave Chappelle special is not PC

Anyone watched the new Dark Crystal series on Netflix yet? The original scared the daylights out of me as a kid, so I thought I'd give it a go.

What a pleasant surprise. Instead of ruining my childhood memories, this new take (actually a prequel to the events of the 1980's movie) is genuinely amazing! Must have cost an absolute fortune to make, the sfx (cgi and puppetry) is top-notch, the series comes off to me as a cross between 'A Game of Thrones' and 'Avatar'.

Compelling story (you need to pay attention), great voice-acting (Mark Hamill among them). Entirely faithful to the original as well. The attention to detail is remarkable.

Also, I'd be very surprised if this series doesn't get referenced in the (cough) 'political' threads. Anyone who sees it will get my drift on this.

More MKultra programming via that black scrying mirror known as the hellivision.

Tim Pools cortisol level will give him a heart attack at some point.

I watched the new Dave Chappelle and he tried to make fun of the left and the right but he couldn't even do that right. He claimed that "mass shootings" are white people's hobby. Is it Dave? At least if you make fun of white people, do it right.

I watched the first episode so far, and the level of craftsmanship is amazing. They really went all out getting the look and feel of the movie down pat.
Though I am confused about the story, I thought the skeksis and 4 arm cow creatures were from the same beings, just split apart when the crystal got split.

I watched the movie with my nephew maybe a few weeks ago, just cause I saw it on netflix and thought he'd get a kick out of it. I wasn't aware they were making a series of it.

I watched it. My verdict is that today's critics have officially gone insane. They've given into public hysteria and have no concept of context.

What context?

I grew up in the era of Sam Kinison and Andrew Dice Clay. Compared to these two, Chappelle is like Mr. Rogers. And before Kinison and Clay, we had Richard Pryor and George Carlin -- both of whom did routines so dirty, radio stations got fined for playing them.

If you're going to be writing about comedy, you should know this history. But the recent review written about Chappelle's new special seems to be penned by millennial woman. They have no sense of history and apparently clutch rosary beads while thinking any off-color joke is somehow sinful.

Even boomer women like Christina Hoff Sommers are putting up pictures of these reviewers on their Twitter feeds with comments like "She looks like a real barrel of laughs." When you're being mocked by the Middle Aged Mom Brigade (who are usually polite), perhaps it's you that has the problem.

Anyway, no one should discuss Chappelle without bringing up the four comedians I just mentioned into the discussion. They made what he does possible. I'm sure he spent his teenage years laughing at their records like many of us did.

Comedy is actually pretty simple to review. If they laugh, it worked. If they don't, it doesn't. This is different than reviewing music or theater, where people can pretend to like something just to seem cool. Laughter is a gut reaction and the audience can't fake it easily.

Looked like Chappelle was still getting laughs to me. And even if those laughs were of the "I can't believe he said that!" variety, those are still legit laughs.

So was browsing the internet and came across the trailer for a new movie on Netflix titled tall girl

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfpXeLVzJIw

Basic premise is that how life is oh so terrible if your a tall girl. That you are a monster if you are tall girl and it is hard to find love. Of course its not her fault that she can't find a relationship but it is society's fault for making tall girls seem unattractive. What a load of crap.

I have met plenty of girls close to from 6 foot to 6 foot 2 who have rejected me because of my height. I am 5 foot 11 so I always find it comical when these tall girls reject me yet complain when they cant find a guy. No you can find a guy you just want someone who is tall. Not even a bit of above normal height will cut it for you.

My experience with tall girls (heck all women in general) is that they are most obsessed with height. And the funniest part is that women have no clue what height is. Most women I have been with will claim to be 2 inches then they really are. Heck even the tall girls I have been with (girls taller then 5 foot 9) all have been 2 inches shorter than what they have claimed.

Will Hollywood ever make movie titled short guy? A movie about how society treats men of short stature and are at the butt every joke. How there are tinder profiles of girls who are short but still have height cutoffs at 5 foot 9? How even your career can be affected as a short guy? Nope because being a tall, blonde and thin girl is much harder.

Watched Slow West on Netflix last night and was generally impressed. An interesting Western with some new twists to the genre.

Rotten Tomatoes critics gave it 92%. I give it a 7.5/10

RE: Netflix Thread - Cr33pin - 09-30-2019 06:17 PM

This show is ok





RE: Netflix Thread - Salinger - 10-05-2019 05:00 AM

Saw another good one on Netflix last night...Mississippi Grind.

Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn star in this film about two guys who meet at a card table and decide they should pair up for awhile to try to hit it big. The latter owes a debt and needs a quick strike to keep him out of trouble and he gets Reynolds character to stake him as they make their way down to a big card game in New Orleans.

If you like Rounders, you'll probably dig this film. The acting is very good, especially Mendelsohn who has become one of my favorite actors recently.

The movie doesn't really stick to traditional 3-act storytelling which leads the story to wander a bit. However, the acting more than makes up for it. I'll give this a 7.3/10.

Pretty good movie! Good recommendation
I give it a 7.129736

Also this music video using Stranger Things clips really shows that the series has some beautiful backgrounds and shots. It's easier to see and appreciate watching it outside of watching the show live...
An of course there are spoilers if you haven't seen season 3

What's more pathetic is that I would wager a significant portion of the critics who gave it a bad review secretly enjoyed it. They don't write for the public, they write for one another, and like to signal how woke they are. I guess you'd have more inside knowledge on how accurate that statement is considering you used to (?) work in mainstream media.

I went to university with an eco-fanatic who had also been on UAF marches (UK predecessor to Antifa)... but was one of the more sane ones for sure. In private, he loved the fact I made sexist jokes and openly dissed Islam etc (this was when that was still very edgy). Because it was refreshing to him. So the idea all these coastal progressives were sat in stoney-eyed silence watching Chapelle just isn't believable to me. They just don't want to be outgrouped by their 'friends'.
