  • Watched some of the Balland of Buster Scruggs..I liked the first character but he gets killed off..
    Liked the second but same..But the third kind of depressed me,realized fast it's just not my type
    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 fucking 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.

    Awkward obligatory real life meets art YouTube video here...

    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.

  • I finished watching John Grisham's An Innocent Man last night. I'd read the book about 8-10 years ago and found it interesting. This documentary didn't disappoint.

    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.
