Finished The X-Files, or at least the tv shows. I just don't think I can be bother with that second movie, despite aitapata insisting that I should, to be a completist.

The end of Season 9 is just so... slapdash and lackluster aaaaaand then it ends.

On a re-watch, I don't mind Doggett and Reyes as much as I did the first go. Possibly because at the time the scuttlebutt was all about how DD and GA just really didn't want to do the show anymore and FOX kept pressuring them and flinging money at them.

So, I am awaiting the new shows. Watching Galavant Season 2 - how that ever got a second go I'll never know, but I love it! Waiting for Agent Carter and Legends of Tomorrow. Supernatural comes back soon too.

Agent Carter was so much fun!

I also liked The Great British Baking Show and I wish there was more. And I re-watched season 3 of Sherlock after watching the Christmas episode or whatever they're calling it. Finally got Dev to watch it, he watched the last one first and seriously confused him.

Time to re-watch Buffy? Maybe. Maybe Angel? Maybe Dollhouse?

ah. yeah. what a shame, season 4 was a corker.

I'm now watching Dr Who from the start of Eccleston's run.

Currently knitting a hat and watching Dollhouse.

Up to S1E6: Man On The Street

I remember that this was the episode that started to grasp hold of the storyline and not let go, no matter how hard the network tried to shake it loose. But, ultimately, it was too little, too late.

Thoughts up to now: It's actually a lot better than I remember. Perhaps because it's all grouped right there to bingewatch? No waiting for next week, or, whenever the network decided to air the thing. And no commercials helps considerably.

I had to stop watching Who for a bit because it's all a bit... samey? I know there are different monsters and so on, but I'm not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. So instead I'm watching people icing cookies, so that when I start trying, I have as much knowledge of the process as possible.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004)
Rating of Fury: D-


Yeesh. There's a reason why Hollywood doesn't make movies in the 1930s style anymore... because it stinks. Yep, from one of the smellier crevices of Netflix, we have the Bush Jr. era Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, a film that's more of a graphic art student's semester-end project rather than homage to Flash Gordon era serials.


Yep, a Hindenburg zeppelin's in the flick. Nope, it doesn't blow up, which violates the laws of motion pictures and physics.

Why is anyone bothering saying anything comprehensible (especially Gwyneth Paltrow)? All the movie dialogue could be Mars Attacks alienspeak and it would flow just the same.


ACK! ACK-ACK! ACK-ACK-flyingnazirobots-ACK!


I like the movie's NYC Art Deco style. I mean, if I was a zillionaire I'd have my house designed like DeCaprio's Gatsby's house. But there a little too much sepia filter going on (or maybe I'm getting hepatitis, I dunno).



The stills can be gorgeous... reminds me of when video game companies post insane-level resolution images to advertise their games, showing what their products can do (but don't).


A hour into the movie burps out Angelina Jolie in a pseudo-Gestapo-fetish uniform (and she's a good guy)... meh... oh, the plot? Uhm... mad (nazi that isn't a nazi but his his name is Totenkopf which is the name of the insignia of the real SS) scientist with a Wizard of Oz complex wants to save the world by destroying it (what?). People who aren't ugly try to stop him. Razz



It's the SS!... No, wait...it's the Punisher!... no... the Gears of War logo?


Sky Captain's frickin' dull. Seriously, what was I thinking reviewing this piece of garbage? I could be catching up on House of Cards but nooo, I had to get cute and try something different. Bleccch.

Never saw The Bridge on the River Kwai, so I decided to Netflix it! Big Grin

The movie according to Furious:

"Let's build that bridge, because it's EXACTLY what they want us to do!"

"But why Colonel?"

"Because we're BRITISH! And we have the spirit and spunk to make the best of any situation!"

One built bridge later...

"Yay! We're British! We build things!"

"Yay! We're Americans! We blow sh*t up!"

BOOM!

Fin.


Supposedly, this is a good movie, but not at 1am. Not rating it to my current bias. Razz

Ken Burns documentaries. I have been watching the drought in the west, nature interests me. I believe it talks to us. I stumbled across Ken Burns, "The Dust Bowl". Gripping documentary. Realized history is not only about, "the past", but about human nature. I have seen Las Vegas and California slowly evolving into a dust bowl. This gives me prediction. Now I am watching, "The West". I am facing human nature I did not consider before, some of it, horror stories far beyond anything I allowed myself to know before. This is good. Again, it gives me prediction. About the future. It isn't that history repeats its self. It is human nature that is predictable. These are fantastic stories. Great tales.

Watching Bojack Horseman season 3 on Netflix. The best dramaodey on TV is a cartoon, but it is SO cringeworthy...

I'm knitting my way through Stranger Things on Netflix.

I'm only 4 episodes in, it's a bit like The Goonies melded with Poltergeist and The X-Files. It's set in Indiana in 1983 and yet the music is all the weirdy stuff I remember getting into because my local radio stations drove me to college radio. But that was a few years later, like, '85 or '86. So I'm enjoying the music. I remember being about 13 and hearing Tainted Love by Soft Cell and discovering that there was more to music than Country and Western.

I want to just knit and bingewatch it all, but I have to clear out my kitchen cabinets.

Both seasons of Galavant are now on Netflix!

This show was just silly and it never should have lasted one season, let alone be picked up for another. Sadly, although there is more story to see, ABC cancelled it. Dare we hope that Netflix picks it up for a third season, or at least a happy ending/movie?

bingeknitted my way through both series and now I'm sad 'cos I'm all done. Although I do want to know what happens next in Fleabag, I also agree with other viewers that it really is complete. It was meant to be a story arc, not a continuing soap opera and it did end on a hopeful note.

But Crashing, that does seem like we need more! Do people really live in unused buildings like that?

Both series have been renewed for second seasons, so you should get more of each next year!

And yes, building custodians (forget the correct term) is a real thing in England.

Been watching the second Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer over and over because Baby Groot.

And Community. I never watched it when it aired, or rather, I tried and couldn't get into it. When it showed up on Netflix I tried again, but didn't get very far. It's on Hulu now and I gave it another go and I'm quite enjoying it. Dunno why I didn't like it before.

Community is a killer show and, in the vein of bad steampunk (or maybe diesel punk?) films, Iron Sky is truly awful and well worth your time if you have literally nothing better to do. It has nazis on the dark side of the moon.

I watched Community a little while ago and really enjoyed it, I think its the first American sit com I've ever enjoyed so there's that.

I also really enjoyed stranger things, I think I finished it in a couple of days. Nancy was super cute and the 80s breakfast club aesthetic was really cool.

A lot of you may have already watched it but if you haven't, I recommend Firefly to anyone near me. That was made back in the days where Joss Whedon was still cool and progressive.

Oh, you're definitely in the right place! We love Firefly! Although we can't seem to make JP watch it.
