Re: HBO's Game of Thrones

Good news is, it's finally over and next year, GOT obsessed Emmy voters can finally vote for the really deserving show that is Better Call Saul. I guess I always gravitated towards Game of Thrones more compared to Beaking Bad because GOT actually showed how deceit and deception and all kinds of vio...

It's almost identical to when people started trying to argue The Martian was better than Interstellar.

Re: Best TV Show Seasons of All-Time (Top 5)

This was really hard (curse of abundance right) so I made some restrictions. No shows that have already been listed, and I also avoided those that are consistently great (hard to pick among those). What remains is a list of standout seasons from shows with varying quality: Homeland 2 Hannibal 2 Farg...

Re: 2019-2020 Awards Season

I think we'll simply change the definition of Oscar Bait. The Academy has been inviting a larger and more diverse group of members in recent years, so the type of movies which were once surefire are not so guaranteed anymore. It'll still take a few more years to certify what type of movies these new...

Re: Joker (2019)

If you don't like a movie's politics fine, go ahead and make that clear in your review, though. You should still try to attempt to critic/judge the film on whether the plot and actions of the characters work within the world of the constructed film. You don't have to agree with it's message but tha...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

I second Touch Of Evil, and Maltese Falcon.

Also White Heat, which for me is the smartest police/criminal movie ever made.
Melville's The Red Circle, and Second Breath. And Anthony Mann's T-Men.

Re: Jojo Rabbit (2019)

Why go through the trouble of making a satire only to turn around and sprinkle it with sentimentality and sanctimoniousness?

Re: Netflix's Mindhunter

You mean Brian? No no it's not at all contrived, rather the fallout from that incident feels very organic. It's only towards the end of the season it falls into a huge cliche territory which I mentioned in the spoiler tag of my last post. How can you view the fallout from Brian's situation as natur...

Re: What Was the Last Episode of TV You Watched

Getting through The Expanse is becoming a real slog; the most unexceptional show I've probably seen. One positive is that I'll get to see David Strathairn soon, and hope he will lively up the show. EDIT: I may have been a bit impatient; season 3 is kicking ass so far. And I have not yet even seen Da...
