    not a show ... just an eleven year old samurai movie ...

    I think I've given this a mention before, but 13 Assassins may well be my all-time favorite movie.

    If you've never seen it, see it. I re-watched it yesterday. I've watched it a dozen times. I never weary of it. Absolutely perfect.

    Watched Social Dilemma on you guys' recommendation last night. Brought to mind the effect that the addiction to social media is having on our young people. That and the lack of interaction with their peers due to this virus shit is going to to have repercussions for years.

    Started re-watching The Wire recently. Forgot how great that show was. So many of those characters have popped up on other shows recently.

    Gonna say if anyone has Apple TV+, Ted Lasso is hilarious. Just a feel good show that I really loved when I watched it

    The Duece is pretty good too. David Simon rarely misses

    started watching the expanse on the recommendation of my attorney
    pretty cool story line for sci fi and only 1 season in to 6 available seasons
    like how main characters get wasted

    Watched Hillbilly Elegy ...

    I thought it was good. I don't think it is the greatest film ever, but seeing how the woke critics hate it so much, I can say it deserves better than it is getting. God forbid that a film depicts poor white folks in the south that doesn't show them burning crosses and fire-hosing Blacks at lunch counters. It shows the ugliness of poverty, but it isn't "diverse" so it's crap, right?

    Ron Howard has been pretty left of center for his Hollywood life, but he is getting torched by the same press corps that lauded his earlier work. I wonder if he feels betrayed.

    I like The Expanse too.
    Probably the most "realistic" sci-fi show out there.

    the last ten minutes gets a little bit preachy but the whole encounter thing was so unexpected
    won't ruin it

    so i was really interested in Halston
    that era of studio 54 always fascinated me w its hedonistic excess and his story is a crazy one for sure
    i knew going in w netflix there would be gay stuff since i'm pretty sure everyone knows the man was gay
    but he also kept it very low key when it came to his public persona
    so when the first 30 minutes had not one but two hardcore bent over the table but fucking scenes i just turned it off
    sure it has its bright spots, maybe not, but McGregor looked great in the role
    what a shame they couldn't tell the story without making him look so absurd and shallow
    i mean maybe he was those things but it just seemed like they were using his story as a vehicle to shock and push an agenda
    shame on them

    Just watched VAL on Amazon Prime.

    It may be an overstatement to say it's fantastic or amazing, but it is definitely a top-shelf documentary. Rarely is anyone in Hollywood this honest and awkwardly transparent.

    i grew up in the middle of this and its truly and amazing story about a guy most thought a conceited vain actor
    the Kilmers were all over this side of the valley and i remember seeing Val and Mare together they were like high school gods
    Trigger hill was the spot all the cool kids knew about
    undeveloped land w incredible views and we had our bong loads and Schlitz talls
    you might mistake it for depressing but its not
    its life

    Bringing this thread back ...

    Netflix had Equalizer3. Hadn't seen either of the first two. Now I will.

    Damn solid film. Antoine Fuqua & Denzel are the new Scorcese & DeNiro.
