    of movie and shut it off..I do get why others like it though but it's not for all.

  • Watched Bandersnatch. Meh. Didn't do anything for me. My daughter was intrigued by the interactive feature but it just didn't really have the juice many of their mini episodes do in the series.

    I'm so excited - I LOVE that book! I had no idea this series existed. Thank you for posting. There was a really good BBC radio series, which I haven't heard in years. Radio serials are wonderful, I think - Lord of the Rings is another one.

    Weird thing about Watership Down, sort-of - a friend's daughter named her rabbit Hazel... yet she had never heard of the book!

    Stephen King loves Watership Down, too - it is mentioned in at least one of his books (IIRC, Stu Redman in the masterpiece "The Stand"?). "Tales from Watership Down" (a sequel of short stories) is also excellent.

  • Bandersnatch is a really cool idea, and loved the 80's vibe. But after the choose your own adventure novelty wore off, it was just an hour of tediousness and confusion trying to figure out any assemblence of a cohesive story.

  • I watched a totally engrossing documentary last night about Stanislaw Szukalski, who was this Michelangelo level talent of a sculptor from Poland in the early 20th century, that fell into obscurity and was later found to be alive in Southern California and befriended by Leonardo DiCaprio's dad and a bunch of other hippie artists in the 70's.

    Sounds weird and boring, but holy shit was it engrossing and engaging. This dude was a genius, and lived this crazy ass life, yet no one remembered him.

    If you like docs, I can't recommend this one more, it's so engaging and interesting.

  • Enjoying S3 of The Travelers. It's like a really good sci-fi network series. (Maybe it was? TNT or something?) Although I am not pleased with the ending of how the episode "David" ended. Without giving any spoilers away, I hope they can remedy it with the magic of time travel. I will watch the next episode tonight.

    Trying to get through the final season of House of Cards. Slow going. Dammit Spacey, why did you have to turn out to be a pedo? The show is nowhere near as engaging and delicious without Francis Underwood.

    It was just OK for me, Bullock and Malkovich elevated Birdbox above it's pretty poorly told pedestrian story.............."Umm there's this evil..............but we won't tell you what it is...................or where it came from........................and here are all these survivors...........................and other than the main character we're not gonna be assed with telling you about any of them..............."

    I'd guess the book does a much better job of fleshing everything out, but the movie? Eh, not so much.

    Totally agree. Entertaining flick, but this type of movie has been done a million times, only difference is they were blindfolded. Quiet Place was much better. This was still one of the better Netflix movies. I don't get they do so poorly with movies but are so great with documentary series and shows. I'm caught up on most the Netflix shows, waiting for the next great one.

    Watched all of season 3 except the finale. I've definitely enjoyed the show for the most part. I am trying to brace myself to be disappointed with the last episode, but hoping that turns out to be unnecessary.

    Definitely enjoyed it, but I think they went off the rails a little with the plot lines. Hopefully next season gets back to a closer version of what they did in the beginning.

  • So I took the time to load up on a bunch of new shows (eclectic mix of series, movies, documentaries, et al) to add to my list...About 12-14 or so. Started watching a couple that are okay but the one that I am loving so far is The Bill Murray Stories' - A Perfect Movie For The New Year

    If you like Bill Murray, you will love him after watching this documentary. He's the epitome of what I would want to be like if I were famous. Worth watching.

    I will report back on the others I added when I get the chance to watch them.

  • This is a great documentary. Hulu made one too and released it a few days before the Netflix one. It's about a guy who threw a festival on a private island, similar to Coachella, only problem is everyone arrived on the island and there was no festival. It's amazing how dumb people can be, the people who went and the guy who was behind it.

    If they do revive it apparently it will be awhile as contractually marvel/Disney cannot use those characters in a non Netflix show for 2 years

    Yeah it was a great documentary, pretty amazing how stupid people can be. Hulu made a doc on the same topic and released it a few days before Netflix. Apparently the Hulu doc focuses more on the guy who threw the festival. I honestly don't feel bad for most of the people who went to the festival, but it's awful what happened to a lot of the workers who are from the island. This documentary showed how influential social media can be.

    Absolutely, and you'll be happy to know people have given to the worker's Crowdfund to pay all those workers back, to the tune of over $123,000.

    Crawled into bed the other night and my SO had passed out watching episode one. Ended up laying there for like half an hour watching episode two. Found it pretty engrossing.
