    Love that show. Makes no sense at all that it is supposed to be a spin-off of that truly garbage show z-nation.

    Just saw the first episode of season 2 and it was intense!

    Watched ‘The Dead Don’t Die’… what a load of tosh, hoping to be ironic but ending up a pile of fetid, pretentious, drivel.

    Next night, Army of Dead… agree with the comments above: watchable, forgettable but not horrible. Like a decent vanilla ice cream: am I enthralled by it, no; will I not finish it? no.

    Saved Black Summer for last… decent. Nothing new for the genre but definitely watchable and enjoyable.

    Is S01 Black Summer the one where everyone is trying to get to the stadium? If so, I watched that and was not impressed.

    Yes, that's the one. If you didn't like that I wouldn't watch the second season.

    The Tomorrow War is a new BIG budget action flick on amazon prime. It really feels like it had an unlimited budget, Beautiful effects and settings for sure. It felt like a mash of Starship Troopers, The Thing, and Aliens. Not half as good as any of those movies though. I was pretty entertained for most of the film. It did end up dragging on too long and the end was too much for me and ended up feeling really silly. That being said I do not regret watching it. Filled that big budget movie theater experience I haven't felt since the pandemic. Watch it with the lights off and a bowl of popcorn and you can almost trick yourself into thinking you bought a ticket to see it.

    Ha, I wouldn't go that far but yeah I was disappointed. I love Jarmusch (with his giant cumulus-cloud hair), but it seemed self indulgent. Kinda like a goof. He puts together a great cast, spends plenty on visual effects, but then purposely wrote a script with a plodding attempt at deadpan humour and far too many breaking the fourth wall gags ...

    Did it take you all eight episodes before you decided you weren't impressed ;)

    I agree that it doesnt really add anything new to the zombie genre, but what weren't you impressed with? The acting?

    Fast zombies are always annoying but the acting and camera work were amazing. That dinner episode alone was worth my netflix subscription for the entire month.

    Fear Street: 1994
    Stranger Things
    meets 90s slasher flick? If that makes it sound awful, I didn't mean for it to. It was fun, but a little more YA-targeted than I'd typically go for. The soundtrack treatment - especially in the first 20ish minutes - was amusing. Today I remarked to my wife that one thing I really appreciated about the movie was that they got all "the levels" right - the volume wasn't swinging between barely audible dialog and ear-splitting soundtrack/sound effects, and the dark scenes were all lit so you could actually see what was going on. That's probably not the best measure for whether a movie is good, but it seems exceedingly rare these days and something I really hate about many current screen-based media.

    I just looked this up and it has two sequels coming out this month! Don't think I've ever heard of that type of marketing and release strategy before. An entire trilogy in a few weeks. I am curious enough to give it a try. I have a soft spot for R.L. Stine regardless of the hit or mostly miss nature of every on screen thing they have ever made from his stuff.

    Fear Street and Ghosts of Fear Street were some of my favorite books when I was a kid, next to the obvious Goosebumps. So I was pretty amped to have Netflix throw this trailer in my face when I signed on last week. I’ve yet to watch it, but the trailer was awesome and I’m eager to sit down with the first flick. Pretty rad to breathe new life into something from the late 80’s/early 90’s, especially since the big time Goosebumps movies were rather terrible(the TV series easily beat ‘em out).

    You know Mark Nagata aka MaxToyCo used to paint the actual covers for goosebump books?

    @Waterbear I barely found out sometime last year when he posted up some of the originals he’s kept over the years! One of the most random, but coolest tie - ins between a childhood hobby of collecting books to collecting toys in adulthood!

    Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) a documentary about the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival.

    Spellbinding performances and great crowd footage. It was a real treat, as soon as Stevie Wonder started going nuts on the drums in the intro, i knew i was going to love this flick. Highly recommended.

    ^^^^Yes!
    I enjoyed it as well. I especially found parallels to today's billionaire space race/B:M contrasting with concert attendees suggesting that the money spent on the space landing could have been better used in underserved communities such as Harlem where the event was taking place.

    On another note, I'm enjoying Mythic Quest on Apple TV (or whatever it's called). It's like Silicon Valley meets It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

    How is it that, for over two years, I didn't know that: a new Park chan-Wook film was out; that it was almost 6 hours long; and that it was British? Almost through the first five slices of Little Drummer Girl. If they manage to stick the landing it'll be my favorite spy biz since Patriot.

    @Brooklyn_Vinyl Mythic Quest is superb! Had a look at the first season, liked it well enough - seemed almost there to me - but fell madly in love with the show over the course of the fresh eps. On a second look, S1 is all that, too. Megan Ganz for empress.

    Can't ever get Mythic Quest when I'm flying the red. Check often, but nada.

    ^^ It's pretty wild for sure. Plus Molly Shannon is still to come.

    I'm so thankful that you mentioned this!

    I came across this brief synopsis a few weeks ago...
    [​IMG]
    ...and had no intention of going anywhere near the show.

    I've been a fan of Mike White since Chuck and Buck and would have been up on Lotus week one had I known it was his project. Enlightened, his show from HBO from maybe a decade ago, was as ignored as it was excellent.

    'Prolly because its an Apple+ thing. Get yourself a free trial and binge away! While you're there, you might want to try Servant on for size; surprisingly well done.

    Agreed! I'm really digging it.

    The Choe Show on Hulu is really good IMO.

    Blood Red Sky was a fun vampire flick. Nothing to write home about, but vampires on a plane? why not.
