  • The Last Jedi (Spoilers Section)

    Overall, I liked it. It was a good action movie but maybe not a real good Star Wars movie. Disclaimer: I'm a casual Star Wars fan, not huge the lore and fandom. 

    Positives:
    • I liked the lesson of the movie: Accept your failures and let go of the past.
    • The action sequences were beautiful in both cinematography and choreography.
    • The Rey and Kylo dynamic was interesting and compelling. 
    Negatives:
    • Less of the cartoony casino would have allowed for more training with Luke/Rey and more backstory between Kylo/Snoke. What did Snoke mean to Kylo? Was it a big deal to Kylo for him to betray Snoke? @Luke @Lannitik @A_Ron_Hubbard ;  
    • The tone and pacing was inconsistent. To go from tense moments to comical and lighthearted casino moments felt like emotion whiplash. @JoshuaHeter
    • With dropped subplots (eg Knights of Ren), open-ended mysteries, and plot holes, it kinda feels like Lost (The Angry Joe - "Top ten things that made us angry about TLJ").
    • Luke. The Luke Skywalker from original trilogy would do anything to help his friends and family and fought so hard to find the light in Darth freakin' Vader. Would he not extend that same mercy to his nephew? Would he ignore Leia's call to him? Was Ben Solo turning dark enough of a catalyst for Luke to be so different in this movie? @mcp6842 @darwinfeeshy

  • 804 - The Last of the Starks

    My god, the writing of this season is as bad as The Walking Dead. Characters behaving out of character to move the plot forward.  

    Edit: I don't think anyone is wrong for liking this show/episode. But the dothraki charging into darkness or Dany not seeing the iron fleet don't make logical sense...

    @rickfurd23 I came here to say the same thing! This episode was so gripping - I can't wait for the next episode. I almost want to take back what I said around episode 2 or 3 of this season, that the bunker characters were boring, but they were! Why did we spend so much time with them, Ms Venable and the teenagers, if they didn't matter! But, yeah, now I'm totally hooked!

    I really liked this episode. It had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

    And now, I'm okay with the Murphy Curveball  of Ally being strong and independent. Last week, Ally telling Kai "You cured me" wasn't enough to answer the question of HOW, but this week fully answered it: Three weeks in presumably solitary confinement after being betrayed and abandoned by absolutely everybody. 

    I also really liked the challenge to Kai's facade. He wants to be the calm wise man to his army and the "cool bro" Dad to Oz, but it started to crack with Oz;s precocious, incessant questioning.

    @TBINKANSAS I also wondered that: "Were the witches able to teleport???" Did I just not remember an important part?

    @Cecily Michael says during his ritual after being confronted with Mallory that he thought he killed all the witches. And now we know he had met Emma Roberts, Cordelia, and Myrtle and knew they were witches in the past, so he must have killed them in that gap in time. How did they get brought back if they're the last three witches outside of the bunker witches?? So excited for answers in the coming episodes.

  • American Horror Story: 1984 /// S9 E3 - Slashdance (Spoilers)

    Ryan Murphy should have added the 24 "beep boop beep boop" before and after every commercial break. Except for the flashbacks, this longest night ever going to play out in real time.

    Going into to this episode, we already know there are three killers - a ridiculous amount of killers for one camp (Jingles, NightStalker, and probably Margaret)-
    and then Nurse Rita: WHAT! OMG 4 KILLERS!
    and then Montana: OMG 5 KILLERS!!!

    Between Trevor saying "his machete is no match for my guns" and Ray's head flying off, this is my favorite season of AHS. They're hitting the exactly right tone for this show.
