    Watch, Watched, Watching: The Prequel

    Watched American Made, which I thought was pretty good. It’s based on a true story about pilot Barry Seal who ran guns for the CIA and drugs for the Medellin cartel in the 80’s. Interesting story, especially if you’re into that kind of stuff (Narcos, Cocaine Cowboys, etc). It’s directed by Doug Liman who seems to get the best out of Tom Cruise these days (he also directed Edge of Tomorrow).

    SOLO: A Spoiler Story (contains spoilers)

    Stopped reading when you put Inception in the same sentence as The Godfather and Heat. Holy fuck...

    I loved It Follows.

    Mike Hoffman (and all the drama surrounding his fiancée cyber bullying his teammates wives) traded to the Sharks....

    A bunch of my favorites are on that list but there’s some glaring omissions. Alien? The Thing? Not sure I agree with Get Out making the cut either. Good movie, but maybe a tad overrated. There’s a few on there I need to see, too.

    Wow, the Caps are idiots for letting him get away. Wonder if he ends up coaching the Isles? Tavares is probably staying put, and Barzal is one of the best young players in the game. They also have Lou Lamoriello in the FO now.

    I can’t not think of Bottle Rocket when I see the name of this show.

    This movie deserves so much more attention. I hope this thread isn’t indicative of how it’s doing at the box office. People really need to support this kind of movie so more stuff like this can be given a wide release.

    Maybe the grandmother didn’t want a repeat of what happened with her own son where he killed himself rather than become possessed. They did mention the transfer would work better if it was a vulnerable male, so maybe they needed to break Peter down before trying since he was already so old? Jeannie also made a big deal about Peter being part of the seance so with Charlie dead they had the opportunity to start the process.

    Funny you bring up The Witch, because Hereditary worked for me on so many more levels than that one did. Going in I was afraid I was going to be letdown by another A24 horror movie with a ton of hype surrounding it. The praise is well deserved in this case though, imo. I think it’s the best horror movie in years. And Toni Collette probably gave the best performance I’ve seen in a horror movie since Essie Davis in The Babadook. As far as nothing unforgettably terrifying, the naked cult members creeped me out more than anyone Paimon was possessing. I would have been out that attic window even faster than Peter was. Charlie’s death was also one of the more shocking things I’ve seen in quite a while. My jaw dropped when they cut to her bug infested head on the side of the road. I’m not sure why grandma Leigh had to be decapitated since she had already transferred Paimon over to Charlie when she was a baby. I also wondered if the death by telephone pole was preordained? They showed a pole at the beginning with the sigil carved in it. I assume it was the same one? Peter smashing his head on the desk happened right after Jeannie came to the school and was ordering him out right? That felt like some kind of pre-transfer preparation...not entirely sure on that one though. I do know I can’t wait to watch this again.

    So the Habs continue to trade away all their best players not named Carey Price, this time it’s Alex Galchenyuk to the Yotes for Max Domi. They trade a guy that can score 30 goals a year for a guy with 36 career goals in 3 seasons... This one looks brutal on paper.

    I felt the same way about The Sopranos. The penultimate episode (Blue Comet) was even better than the finale, which was pretty great itself.

    Not so much unpopular, more that many thought Ozymandias was the better episode.
