I binged on the Showtime series Billions last week. It's not very realistic - in reality, you would have a whole bunch of federal district attorneys getting themselves disbarred in a hot minute, and a hedge fund manager going to prison on RICO charges - but it sure as hell is entertaining. First rate acting, too.

We've been working our way through Peaky Blinders and absolutely loving it.

Also recently watched a couple movies that I really enjoyed:
The Peanut Butter Falcon was pretty funny and heart warming. I feel like Shia LaBoeuf can be pretty polarizing with people, but he did a great job in this movie.
The Rolling Thunder Review was actually really cool. I never really bothered to learn much about Bob Dylan before, but I've been listening to him a lot more after watching that movie.

Also, I tried to watch Clarkson Farms on Prime, but apparently I just really don't like that guy.

i kept spacing watching Invincible, binged through it the other day. as someone who likes violent super hero stuff, Chef's Kiss. as someone who LOVES the graphic novel series, EIGHT THOUSAND CHEF'S KISSES.

all the changes were GOOD. updated some parts of characters that didn't age well, made them more palatable and/or interesting (Amberrrrr is a HUGE improvement). changed the whole rhythm by making the big reveal of Season 01 play out completely differently. works, and makes it feel like a distinct work compared to the comics?

Saw Dune in IMAX yesterday.
My guts are still rumbling from the loudness. Sonically and visually amazing, and it does justice to the book more than I hoped it to.
Also, first time in a cinema since 2 years ago.

Man, Dune doesn't come out for another month here! And it's the one movie that I am willing to go back to the movie theatres to see. Glad to hear that it does justice to the book!

yeah good to hear RE Dune. Not out here yet I don't think. Man, and loudness. I went to the movies last night and it was just a small screen of what could be a quiet film (Sweetheart, definitely recommend) and it was SO LOUD. Going to start taking plugs to the cinema because apparently I'm old and have garbage ears.

If it's too loud, you're not losing your hearing yet. :lol:

I went to something 2-3 years ago, and it was insanely loud. I was getting fucked off with how ridiculously loud it was. It was taking away from the experience, because I couldn't get lost in the film. I think it just comes down to having inexperienced people working the theatre controls---like getting a bad projectionist who can't see something is misaligned.

Blade Runner 2049 was insanely loud, so I'd like to blame Hans Zimmer (same with Inception years ago), who's participation in movies in general can only be described as an affliction. Likewise, it doesn't help that most big screen action vehicles almost always veer into Zimmer territory, which is now synonymous with "epic" picture soundtracking, lest they be seen or felt as anything but.

I wanted to believe that a full capacity theater might deaden the overall sound, but science says otherwise, I'm afraid (also, please take Hans Zimmer's subharmonic rack gear away from him already).

Sadly, this has gotten even worse as digital has taken over, as the program cannot be interrupted after it initially begins, at least for things like subtitles and (depending on the film/distributor) fixed-level audio. With most of the bigger chains, they're tied to their runtimes, locked-in previews, etc., so the window to correct something is even smaller than in the 35mm days. And as much as I'd love to see Dune on a big screen, I'll just have to take some earplugs, maybe :cry:
Good morning!

:lol: fair!

But should have been more specific ;) garbage ears in that they have weird problems - though my hearing could be better it's definitely not getting worse yet :lol:

I thought Ted Lasso was bunk. The characters are mostly stereotypes and it’s way too cute by like double. A lot of folksy BS dialogue like “My grandpappy always said, never give a banana to an elephant” (or whatever) and then all the Brits roll their eyes at the rube Hahaha! It’s kind of like Forrest Gump, kind of lightweight but it’s a blank slate for people to project some deeper philosophical meaning onto, another reason to dislike it. But I don’t like serial TV, so YMMV. I binged season 1 (free trial of Apple TV, which looks really weak overall). When Season 2 was available, I decided to pass.
