    Mod note for thread: if you post spoilers/speculation/rumors regarding recent TV shows or movies use the spoiler tag. This includes plot twists, mood references, alive/dead comments, or anything that might offer clues to what viewers can expect, excepting a personal thumbs up or down. Be careful when quoting text tagged as spoilers. If you really want to talk with someone about spoiler content in detail, use a PM. Basically, just be considerate of your fellow posters who may not be as current as you.

    Westworld S3 is great so far.

    Long but great read if you like the movie. Heck I have it on my DVR right now. Think I’ll watch it again.

    I watched it right after Top Gun and it’s the same movie but worse.
    2 best movies I’ve watched this pandemic are Portrait of a Lady on Fire and Justice League Dark Apokolips War. They are wildly different movies.

    I actually cannot stand the guy. He's incredibly annoying to watch/listen to for me. The David Chang food shows on Netflix are much better, IMO.

    I was going to take a break after season 2. I like to change it up and as each season is a story, it's easier.

    On Legion....I watched part of season 1 and didn't love it. Worth progressing you're saying?

    I see it ran 3 seasons. I like that length if it's solid.

    The level of action picks up a ton but the weirdness is pretty consistent throughout the series if that put you off. Same show runner as Fargo. Ewen Mcgregor mailed it in for Fargo season 3, it’s like a 7/10 when the 1st 2 seasons are 9/10 and 9.5/10. I’m still pissed Gaga beat Dunst for the GG.

    Justice League Dark: Apokolips Wars was pretty bad. Surprising, coming from Bruce Timm and DC Animation, who rarely put out bad products. But Apokolips War is an incoherent mess. I hated especially how they treated the character Raven. Just awful.

    Finally got around to watching The Mandolorian and really enjoyed it.

    IG-11 sacrificing him/itself
    Bringing in Ming Na Wen only to have her go out like that?

    Countless Baby Yoda scenes
    Life Day reference
    Scout troopers can't shoot and the conversation they had after nabbing Baby Yoda.

    A Carbonite machine on his ship? Is that possible?
    Can't remove their helmets? Must be a recent thing because they all removed their helmets in Rebels
    Ming Na Wen's character not dead?
    It's five years after Return of the Jedi (24 after Ep 3), yet the Force is some big secret that no one knows about?
    How did the Moff get the Darksaber?

    The Old Guard.....not bad.

    Fargo season 1 good, season 2 even better.

    Cosmos - fun little astronomer’s flick.

    Warrior Nun.....torn.....started meh.....finished fairly well, but wouldn’t be surprised if it was one and done.

    We watched The Old Guard this weekend too. It was a solid movie, but I just wanted so much more. The story is very interesting and you want to learn more and more background about the characters. Would have been better suited as a TV series. How sweet would it be to be able to see these characters throughout history and the crazy things they've done.

    The ending seems to leave the door open for a possible sequel. Some speculated that Andy's character becoming mortal was to kill her (and Charlize Theron's big salary) off to create a show next instead of a movie

    I was totally hoping it was a series...definitely open for a sequel (or prequel).

    My son is 5, so he's been watching all the Star Wars stuff from Ep I-IX, Solo, Rogue One, Lego Star Wars, all of it. So I've been watching a ton of it also and going back over the old stuff, in light of the new stuff, is fun. My favorite catch is this:

    In the original Star Wars, Vader/Tarkin lets the Millenium Falcon leave the Death Star, so they could track it to the rebel base ... something Leia knew at the time, even though the Falcon leaves the Death Star and jumps to light speed. Fast forward to Eps VIII, Last Jedi, and the Resistance folks are shocked, shocked, to learn that the First Order can "track us through light speed, how is that possible???". I'm like "Um, the Death Star did that 42 years ago, try to keep up".

    Also, Obi Wan is a damn liar... "I don't seem to remember ever owning a droid" (about when he first meets R2 with Luke on Tatooine). Come on man, that droid saved your ass leaving Naboo, you've known him since you were a teenager.

    /end nerd session.

    PS, even for adults, Star Wars Lego on Disney is HILARIOUS! My favorite: When Luke, Han and Leia are hanging out in the Mos Eisley Cantina, in the same booth where we first meet Han, hanging above their head is a sign that says "In loving memory of Greedo".

    Palm Springs on Hulu is pretty good, if you like Andy Samberg.

    Speaking of Taika Waititi, he directed a great and under-the-radar film called Hunt for the Wilder People that I would recommend. It has Sam Neill.

    Also, two early 50's movies that I'd highly recommend, The Wages of Fear, and Ace in the Hole. You'll pay for the whole seat, but you'll only need the edge.

    Dutch is even more so. Every time I watch it, I wonder why the world hasn't caught on to it yet.
