Anyone watch the Leftovers? I just watched it and really liked it and a final season 3 is starting in April. I just read that season 1 covered the entirety of the book, which is weird because I still have no idea what is going on after season 2.
And that concept of tricking viewers seems to be the trend in these shows now and it kind of pisses me off. Yet at the same time they seem to be among my favorites. Would Westworld, Mullholland Drive etc. even be good shows if they didn't resort to using cheap tricks like separate timelines that send the viewers to places like Redditt to look for clues and theories.

Going to go see Silence this weekend. Wonder if it'll sneak in late with some categories for acting.

Went to see Silence last night. Good movie, but holy fuck is it long. Damn near 3 hours.

Beautifully shot, looks like one of the hardest movies to ever shoot logistics-wise.

Andrew Garfield carries the movie, and does a good job, but Adam Driver's character was basically useless. I wish Driver was in the role Garfield had.

Liam Neeson is a great actor, I forgot how good he can be. He's barely in the movie, but when he is, he commands your attention.

I'd honestly wait for rental. I doubt it gets nominated for anything outside of maybe Best Director and a couple of technical awards.

I don't think star wars is going for something deep and meaningful. They told a story based on a couple of lines from the original. I enjoyed it for what it was. Then again I think the big lebowski is jus a meh movie and I don't understand why people like it so much. Then again I've never finished it either.

Different strokes for different folks. I was cringing at every corny ass line out of that girls mouth. Action scenes were solid at times. I can't remember the last good action movie that I've seen.

You ever notice that they will always make shows/movies about Biblical events such as the rapture in the Leftovers ( which sounds more like mom's 2 day old meatloaf than an event based on a book written over 2 thousand years ago), and Game of Thrones http://www.playbuzz.com/kathleenlawrence10/is-the-story-from-game-of-thrones-or-the-bible

But yet at the same time Hollywood won't go near the theme of the End Times and rise of the antichrist ( aside from metaphorical interpretations) as written in the Book of Revelations and the Book of Enoch?  It's some of the most frightening sht1t one could possibly even imagine....beasts rising from the seas with 7 heads next to hybrid lions who have wings like eagles...the 4 fallen angels bound to the Euphrates river finally being released to complete their goal of slaughtering one-third of mankind....demons shapeshifting into humans in order to have sex with human women whose offspring the Nephelim grow to be over 500 feet???  




Well my guess would be funding from big studios to make these movies, they still get made. I mean we have apocalypse and revelation movies. I am thinking like The Omen, The Rapture, The Seventh Sign, Apocalype movies, Left Behind...

Yeah but I'm talking about a direct interpretation of the End Times and not just paralleled apocalyptic movies with zombies, nuclear holocaust, etc.  OK yeah TECHNICALLY Left Behind would be an example but that involved pretribulation events and incorporated a lot of fiction ( not just artisitic liberty)  I'm talking about a big Hollywood production utilizing the latest CGI a la 33 degree freemason Michael Bay....It seems like it would have a lot of crossover potential with both Christians and horror/action genre non-Christian fans

I caught the last 45" of Love & Mercy. I'm intrigued enough to look for it on Netflix or AP.

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Saw it Friday. The end, did the Sherrff chick figure out the uncle may be abusing the girl? What's up with Bruce Willis? Same guy directed unbreakable. Is he trying to tie them together? Etc.

Don't click if you haven't seen Split:
I think the officer figured out that she cut herself because of the sexual abuse she suffered from her uncle.

Bruce Willis' character at the end was David Dunn, the same person from Unbreakable. This is a thematic sequel to Unbreakable, and the next movie is going to be Dunn finding Kevin.

Thanks. I'll let my wife know. We were puzzled. Guy who played the main character was awesome. Etc etc

TV. History channel (I think) drama set in the ninth century. Been watching some of the earlier seasons on Amazon. Much blood gets spilled.

I can't speak to something I don't know anything about. Try Vlad and Herbie, they're very good at that.

Meru. A documentary on Amazon about three guys trying to climb this ridiculously tough mountain in India that has never been climbed before. They fail the 1st attempt. 3 years later they try again. In between climbs, 2 of the guys nearly die in separate extreme skiing mishaps. Pretty fucking intense.

Recent movies I've seen:

Nocturnal Animals - interesting story, but Amy Adams' character is so horrible and unlikable that it almost ruins the movie

Split - masterfully done, M. Night at his best (when he's on, he's hard to beat)

Moonlight - so slow moving, and fucking sad as hell
