  • It's truly the best show that nobody's watching, which is a shame. Even Alan Sepinwall has been singing praises since season one (Cc: @A_Ron_Hubbard). Instead of those mediocre melodramas HBO has been churning out (cough cough The Undoing) this show…
  • Saw this by chance and thought people in this thread might enjoy it. Living Mall in Taipei, which is currently being demolished, had a structure that looked *quite* similar to Rohoboho.  Cc: @Jim  @A_Ron_Hubbard https://twitter.com/edenLi…
  • fidoz said: Freddy said: Alright @fidoz , now you're just making movies up. I just put a poll up on The Big Picture Facebook group asking what movie I should watch for my 200th movie of this year. I should hit that milestone on Wedn…
  • MrX said: Chinaski said: anyone else having some crazy vivid dreams during shelter in place? i thought it was me, but i ran across an article online where 'it's a thing'. man, i've been having some wild dreams as of late. I can't q…
  • I literally gasped when both Alexis and JIm said they knew nothing about The Little Prince. While it was written like a children's book, it truly is a masterpiece about what makes the fleeting human life meaningful. I can see how Kim is the rose to …
  • I'm low-key obsessed with this show. If you think being poor sucks, man, just take a look and see what it's like to be a poor woman living in a strict catholic community. The performances from the whole cast are terrific, especially the two leads (b…
  • Pain and Glory The semi autobiographical film by Pedro Almodovar is so gorgeous, as you would expect from the auteur. It's also deeply moving and, at times, really funny. The tenderness of Antonio Banderas' performance is exquisite. Can't recommend…

  • Amazon/ Copper Lord Bezos finally released the official Expanse merch if anyone's interested. Personally, I'm disappointed that none has the word Beltalowda on it.  https://www.amazon.com/theexpanse
  • Jarred Harris was on Seth Meyers the other night promoting the show and turns out he's also a big Game of Thrones fan. It's a pretty charming conversation. GoT spoiler starts at around 3:20. (There's also a Mad Men spoiler at 1:55 but the show ended…
  • First of all, temper you expectation going into the final episode. It's not going to tie up everything in a neat bow. Because of the disastrous fiasco of the piano teacher episode and the rambling mess of the Mexico episode, I felt quite anxious …
  • This was a decent episode. A focused story that didn't swerve into 15 different topics, great acting, and some hit-or-miss dry humor and tension dotted throughout. Strangely, I don't think I have much to say about it. Maybe it's because having a chi…
  • Episode 6 (Panorama) was all over the place. There were the critique of charlatans who exploit desperate people with false hope, hints of the danger of being a journalist in Mexico (16 were killed/disappeared in 2017 alone according to Wikipedia), c…
  • In addition to the talking zombies, I'm pretty sure I also heard Carol say "Dracarys" when she set those ex-Saviors on fire.  
  • Let me just preface by saying that with this episode, I wouldn't blame the guys if they stop covering the show. From Friday's LWJ&A it seemed @A_Ron_Hubbard was already under a lot of stress these days. There's no need to do this to yourselves! …
  • Episode 5 was so bad, y’all! It was so icky that I felt like I needed a shower after watching. It’s a mystery that how nobody told Weiner this episode was a terrible idea and why all the wonderful actors just went along with what I can only refer to…
  • Did Weiner just basically recycle the brunch scene with Roger and his daughter Margaret ("I forgive you." "And I forgive you.") from S7E1 of Mad Men? The dynamic and the tension were so similar between Julia and Ella. He even used the same word "ser…
  • CapeGabe said: Ah, what the fuck was that? Did Matthew Weiner and David Lynch have a baby and named it Episode 3? Almost. Episode 3 was co-written by Weiner and Lynch's long-time collaborator/ex-wife Mary Sweeney. I mean, they pretty much …
  • Things happened in Episode 3 were real and not real. It's glorious and uncomfortable to watch. One of the earliest scenes where they were shooting the disposal of the Romanov corpses set the tone for me-- even by movie magic standard those bodies fe…
  • JoshuaHeter said: Also... I think we can likely agree that the ceiling is much lower on this because it’s episodic: no real world building, long character arcs, etc. That said, the first 2 episodes are just great Matthew Weiner storytelling.…
  • Biggest surprise of this episode to me was that Hoyt Fortenberry was apparently sleeping with the ultra-talented Eileen now. I can totally see @A_Ron_Hubbard seething on Baby Vamp Jess' behalf.
  • Watching this show reminds me of an episode of Guys We Fucked podcast where the hosts interviewed a former pimp. They're a very specific type of predatory con men, almost like a cult leader with a few female believers. I guess that's why I always wi…
  • What a stunning finish to a great season! To me, the world in Humans just keep expanding, and the stakes keep getting higher. It started with one ordinary family in season 1 but at the end of this season you see the impact of conscious synths throug…

  • Quick note on the title: Akane No Mai means Akane's dance. Also I think the word that got @A_Ron_Hubbard confused was Ronin, basically a Samurai without a master. Ninja/Shinobi is a different class of people who are mercenaries or assassins. They ar…
  • Will definitely watch Flying Joan! Although I must point out that one of the very few women-owned airlines in the world, VietJet Air, is famous for having bikini-clad female flight attendants. (source here) I don't think the Joan we saw in series fi…
