    Makes some sense now that I see it, though. He was a big boy too and defensively savvy iirc.

    Watching the 1981 Brian De Palma film Blow Out for the first time right now. Takes place in Philly. Really good thriller / mystery so far.

    Unfortunately these days it’s impossible to distinguish between parody and genuine mental illness.

    The guys that make GTA have been quoted as saying unfortunately their satire in the games aren’t too far fetched these days.

    I'm not sure if this has been talked about in the past or not, but if y'all haven't watched Love Is Blind yet on Netflix, you are most definitely missing out.

    @Captain Dave Poulin, when you come up for air, this is must watch stuff.

    Unfortunately, Netflix is must internet stuff. And for that reason, I'm out. But I'll DL it later, or watch it after the pandemic at my sister's.

    Was listening to the Chiclets podcast featuring Cam Neely and it got me enjoying the video of him getting knocked out by Domi.

    What a treat to see. Goodnight, f***face

    I hooked up the GTA V machine for Beefette so she could kill time while quarantined, and since she's never played it.

    It's kind of bizarre seeing stuff on their various news stations that a few years ago was completely absurd, but these days isn't all that different in substance from what you might hear now. What the f*** happened in such a short time period.

    We finally finished the last 2 episodes of The Outsider (we had recorded them weeks ago, but other things took priority). Thought is wrapped up well enough, with a nice teaser in the final episode credits. Doubt there will be another season, and was likely just a 'leave it up to the viewer' moment, but was a good way to end it.

    I enjoyed it and found it a satisfying conclusion, while withholding some of its secrets. It was a slow burn, and maybe stretched a touch thin over a few middle episodes, but it had great acting and writing and atmosphere.

    As for a second season, Ben Mendelsohn mentioned in an interview post-finale that he was aware of someone somewhere working on writing something. How vague. Richard Price, the show runner, wasn’t exactly coy when he said he wouldn’t be surprised if a second season happened, given the ratings and buzz. Maybe it doesn’t come to pass, and I have no clue what characters or story it would follow (Holly Gibney has been a character in several of King’s unrelated stories). But the impetus is there. And lord knows, Stephen King is prolific.

    Just finished Good Boys on HBO. The people in my department watched the trailers for it a lot when they were released, but no one actually went to see it in the theater.

    It was really good. I laughed the entire movie and it has a really good message. As a former Middle School teacher and former 12 year old boy (which was when I started posting on these message boards 22 years ago!) it captures that time period perfectly. Highly recommend.

    He did kill it, bigtime. A lot of times when you see various performances of mental illness, the actor takes it as a license to go full ham (AKA "Jon Voight Freedom"), but Pelphrey was so, so good.

    Which is a good reason to remind people to go get "Banshee" (which he was a minor-ish character in) and binge that mother****er. Came completely out of nowhere, and while it has its moments of corn, it is far, far better than it had any right to be.

    Unlike Laura Linney, who is a hot ****ing mess. There are times where she sits in a pocket and seems almost pseudo-human , but the vast majority of the time she looks like someone who got halfway through a study of Stanislavski, told herself "I'm method, and I'm ready for the world!" and hit the stage. She processes (and displays) about 100 more emotions per second than she needs to. Blech, whatever.

    Having said that, what a killer third season of "Ozark" - the perfect binge.

    Pelphrey‘S performance was so astoundingly good that his performance is of the rare variety where I’ll actually become angry if he doesn’t win all of the awards.

    Ozark season 3 was an excellent binge. Best season to date for sure.

    Banshee has, by far, the most brutal fight sequences of any tv series I have ever seen. Absurdly metal.

    I enjoyed that show. Shit was like an unofficial soft core porn at times.

    Just watched "The Gentleman" and thought it was really good.

    So I went back to watch and earlier Guy Ritchie movie, "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels", and was incredibly unimpressed. I know I watched "Snatch" a decade+ ago and don't remember if I liked it or not, so maybe I'll need to watch that one again.

    I did like "The Man From U.N.C.L.E" and the "Sherlock Holmes" movies too, so maybe Lock Stock was just a fluke dislike.

    Or possibly, you have no taste or sense whatsoever.

    I wish it was harder to believe that this trash compactor of a server was still acting like this, but sadly, it's not.
