It is quite good. Different from the books, but the second book is fantastic. Sort of like the way GoT departs a bit from the books, but the books are not that mindlessly wandering as GoT.

OPA Pampa!

"Be Seeing You!"

The reconditioned Japanese Original The Prisoner.

Now I like LongshanksPatrick McGoohan, but he tends to act as if he is in a silent movie. Perhaps that was his intention.

Saw the first of Jack Ryan. Good production values but the plot was pretty obvious. Definitely worth following.

Would have been better if I didn't have to lip read.

Just sat through "The Core". There's 2 hours I'll never get back.

'Nough said?

Just don't do it. Shame on HBO for showing this retarded piece of shit. And shame on Jenny Garner for collecting a paycheck for it.

I mean, ... Dayum, but that was bad.

Another real stinker on HBO. It's called "The Greatest Showman", ostensibly P. T. Barnum. Jackman plays Barnum.

It's a fucking musical! With dance numbers and shit.

Holy shit.

Watched 1/2 of a movie called "Checkpoint".

There is no acting in it. An amazing feat actually if you think about it. That means that even an extra standing in the background and saying nothing fails.

Amazing but true.

Well no movie is perfect.

Did I find it on YouTube? I think I did.

And Then There Were None

Very well done. Excellent.

The Daniel Sloss Netflix specials were excellent. (Stand-up comedian)

It's two different shows he did, each an hour long.

Sounds awesome
I remember that one!
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Maniac on Netflix

Very weird, but I liked it.
Spoiler:
There was a scene where a guy was talking to a girl about eloping and starting a new life together. In the next instant, he's sitting on a bed in a cramped apartment, surrounded by babies and kids, and the girl is screaming in his ear about something.

Holy shit, that's what it's like! :shock:
Such potential!
