I watched a documentary called Bad Rap, about four Asian-American rappers and their struggles with finding success and their place within the Hip-Hop scene and community, as well as within mainstream media as well. It was good and really highlighted something that I never really though about with regards too Hip-Hop and Rap.

We are finishing up Dark on Netflix... Holy shit this show is really good... It's like stranger Things but much, much more serious... the young people in the main plot are older...we're watching it in dubbed in English, rather than subtitles...
 

 

Awesome. About to start it.

I was sick these weekend and watched a ton of movies. Odd thing is I can't remember much about any of them. Guess that means they must not have been that good and/or I was delirious from the fever.

Doing a re-watch of The League in honor of fantasy football playoff season.

Taco: I also wanna check out your urinal.
Ruxin: I don't have a urinal, just a shower that you pee in.

Honestly I think it’s an age thing. The people who told me I need to see it were teenagers when it came out. I was born a few years later and have seen several similar movies before seeing it, so the construct wasn’t new. It’s kind of like showing a kid Star Wars today. It’s not as impressive because they’ve already likely seen several quality space operas before.

That's a goddamned shame. I love that film and even when I see it now it still cracks me up. I guess it's a bit like the people who read Snow Crash and then later on tried to read Neuromancer and were a little underwhelmed. :(

Gads, I've been slogging through Frontier season 2 just as I slogged through season 1.  It should be a lot more interesting and exciting than it is.  What it is, is just, well, dreary.  Lots of pretty fur though.

Last night I watched In Bruges for what I thought was the first time. And yet many parts of it felt familiar. Had I actually seen in before and forgotten or have I just seen so many little snippets of it that it just seems like I've seen it? Anyway. Fantastic performances from Farrell and Fiennes. All the stuff about Bruges being like a fairy tale had me cracking up.

Yeah, I can confirm that on the example of my own girls (8 and 11). We started to watch Star Wars just few weeks ago. They've watched all of them but Rogue One by now and they're simply crazy about it. They want me to take'em on the Midnight premiere of Episode VIII.

 I watched it for the first time a few weeks back and thought it was excellent. 

Heat was on yesterday and I caught it at the beginning. What a great film that is, the bank scene is still insane.

Staying at a hotel and have needed tv to drown out highway and other people noise and so it's been on Alaskan Bush People most of the time I've been in the room.  This is the most fascinating and offensive thing I've ever seen.

The family went to see Coco last night.  And, no, I wasn't crying.  An eyelash was in my eye.

I watched A Most Violent Year while I was off sick this week. I don't know if it was because I didn't feel well but I didn't really care what happened to the characters. I just didn't engage with it. I thought it was an interesting role for Jessica Chastain, nice to see her do something 'complex' and multidimensional, and not necessarily be a 'nice girl'. 

Started watching Mindhunter last night. It's good but I'm a little disappointed with the sex scenes, seems a bit heavy-handed. I just wish people would do MORE with sex scenes. I think of The Affair as a show that uses sex scenes (and there are A LOT) to tell you stuff about the characters, so it doesn't feel gratuitous. I don't know, I just think sometimes sex gets shoehorned into series because there's an expectation that you need sex in a 'gritty adult series' but if it's not doing anything useful then it just irritates me.
