  • The Haunting of Hill House

    Break neck lady was a solid episode, same with ep. 6

    So far that's the best moment. I don't think I'll ever forget it. Absolutely stunning, that last bit. Like worse than any vision of hell I've ever seen.

    I'm halfway through episode 7 (the trick to stop bingeing a good show is to stop in the middles) and I have to say... this show started out with 20 jump scares an episode and now there's like, two.

    I think jump scares are ok when they aren't clearly for the camera. There's been a few movies the last decade or so where it's clear the ghost thing is screaming at the camera, not the characters.

    That's a good distinction. I think the reason I don't like them is they take me out of the movie/show, and the reason I'm especially annoyed with them right now is because this show is (1) poignant and (2) more of a time investment than I've ever given jump scares.

  • I just watched The Pilot for the first time...

    FWIW, I am also a huge fan of the sequential recap and didn't even realize they didn't do that here. Maybe that means you'll get used to it? 

    Enjoy episode 3, one of my favorite hours of television.

    I watched half of Solo yesterday on a plane ride and LOVED IT! 
    Basically I watched So.  And now I can't wait to watch Lo.  

    Seriously why is this movie so polarizing amongst the Star Wars fam?  Shouldn't even be a debate.  Wait...now I'm worried Lo is going to ruin So.  I doubt it though. That movie was kickin' until the wifi got turned off.  Can't wait to rewatch on a TV instead of a phone.   

    I think it was polarizing before people saw it. It's my favorite one of the new ones though.
