Re: HBO's Watchmen

Absolutely disagree that Zack's version of Dr Manhattan doesn't provide what the comics does (but I get some folks love to hate him). Him and Crudup did a beautiful job in every way, and yes, Crudup is the ultimate Dr Manhattan, by far. If anything, the show is shaky on several elements, one being t...

Re: USA's Mr. Robot

Well, I feared Esmail wasn't going to deliver on that particular aspect, although I kept thinking that White Rose was telling the truth. So glad he had the balls to do it.

Re: USA's Mr. Robot

Astonishing to see the seeming lack of interest of this community in the show, Esmail just dropped a huge bomb in the penultimate episode and keeps smashing it every single episode, there are few shows out there better than this, incredible.

Re: HBO's Watchmen

They did it. They really, actually did it... Been following this show since it was announced with high hopes as both a Watchmen and Lindelof fan, and it truly delivered something bold, meaningful, and distinct in a Last Jedi-esque manner (though it was certainly even bolder and weirder than TLJ). A...

Here I was thinking that I'm not going to see better TV than Chernobyl in at least a few years.

Still bugs me that Redford never made a cameo in this though. He was even listed on Wikipedia as a member of the cast for a good long while. 😒
He was never going to do it :D

Re: Six Underground (2019)

Bay UNLEASHED, supremely dumb, over the top, melodramatic but also a total blast, never change Bay. The Hong Kong portion is a favorite, especially the Parkour scene. By the way, WOW does the Venice section look videoey, I was just shocked by that, clipped highlights, hyper real, kinda felt like Pub...

Re: Parasite (2019)

The birthday party is an absolute
fever dream, and that overhead shot is just right.
Fantastic film, either this or Memories Of Murder as Joon-ho's finest.

Re: HBO's Watchmen

Westworld S1, I'd say the money is on the screen and a lot of location work too. I'm sure there's a ton of regular VFX work on Watchmen but how?

Re: HBO's Watchmen

That's really hard to believe. If true, the money is not on the screen frankly. This doesn't look like a show that has $15 million plus per episode. And usually these days, most shows with giant budgets, you can see it in the production values. Or is it more of a situation where some episodes have a...
