There's a long post forthcoming about The House that Jack Built. God fucking damn...

I’m intrigued to see what you say about this. I haven’t watched it yet.

I saw the new Suspiria yesterday and I guess I liked it. It had some weird ass choices(Thom Yorke’s vocals over some scenes) and was over 2.5 hours long but it ended with an obnoxious bang. It kinda drags a few times, and could’ve easily been edited down a good 15-20 minutes, but I was engaged for the most part. I don’t really remember the original so I don’t know how close the script was to that either. 

Spoiler

So Tilda Swinton played the old guy too(and Markos)!? Crazy. A few scenes early on I thought he might be a younger actor in makeup but absolutely did not know it was Tilda. 

The ending was so over-the-top and outrageous but I liked it. I’m thinking that she has Markos, and all of her followers, killed because she was supposedly claiming to be Mother Suspiriorum. Markos reminded me of one of the witches from The Witcher 3 too.

I guess Susie had Mother S in her her whole life too since it showed her obsessed with going to Berlin since childhood... assuming she had to actually go there to complete the ritual. It seems pretty straightforward but I’m gonna go read about other interpretations and general thoughts.

Still need to see this. Love the original (anything by Dario Argento really). The music is my favorite part of the one from 1977. How was it in the remake?

Is there a thread on You?  I am not angling that there be one, mind you.  I'm on E8 and am just fascinating by what everyone else is fascinated about.  This is a very difficult show to categorize.

It was pretty good. They obviously chose to go a very different route than the original by getting Thom Yorke, but it was haunting and fit the movie. 

There is one major scene at the end where Yorke’s vocals are deliberately blaring and is kind of at odds with the scene... but it works in a sick and twisted way. The last half hour of this is pretty wild.

This could be the post which tips me over the edge to watch this.

Here you go.

The ending changed my opinion of You. It didn't really go were I was expecting it to.

I watched a few episodes of You last week. It felt like a poor version of Dexter.

Bit of a discussion of You upthread. I actually ended up really enjoying it despite reservations. It does a lot of unexpected things, but don't over think it!

Been watching The IT Crowd on netflix...  Do people like this show?  I thought people did, but it isn't as good as the hype for it.  It's just a bunch of Oh Look! NERDSSSSS!!! jokes.

I watched Black Museum and Shut up and Dance from Black Mirror last night. I enjoyed both. I thought Dance was great and entertaining all the way through. Black Museum was good, and had amazing/scary ideas, but I found myself getting a little bored at times. The ending was cool.

RE: Cutting the cords. I checked out the Hulu w/ Live TV options today, and gotta say, I was impressed with the channels they have in my area. For sports, they have pretty much all ESPN channels, Big 10, SEC, FS1 & 2, NBCSN. They have all the Turner channels for movies. Also, FX, FXX, SyFy, etc. Has me seriously considering axing off cable. Only thing that has kept me was the sports, and looks like that is now covered. I also have Netflix and Amazon so I feel like I'm covered on all fronts. Anyone have Hulu w/ Live TV? Thoughts?

I hardly ever watch TV anymore. Cut the cable long ago, now even my Netflix and Amazon lay dormant for the most part. I simply am not an episodic TV kind of watcher anymore. I don't really follow what shows are trending, unless I hear about something second-hand through my bar customer chatter, facebook, or sites like this.

So I have no idea why the hell I got hooked on Lucifer on Netflix (just finished the first season). It's corny as all get out, but I love shows with the framework of "Okay, it's Matlock, only this time he's a ____ !" Heck, I can watch Psych and be totally content and that show is eye-rollingly schlocky sometimes. I don't recall hearing chatter about Lucifer other than vaguely remember it being a show that maybe people liked, that may have been cancelled and/or renewed.

Upon looking it up, I was very surprised I'd not heard of it - I love Neil Gaiman, damnit! For a decade,  The Sandman has been on my list of things I keep meaning to dive completely into, despite my general malaise when it comes to reading comics. Anyways, it'll be nice to cruise through knowing people continued to enjoy it. For now I will enjoy ridiculously beautiful people solving paint-by-numbers whodunits, with the occasional bargain barrel fight scene or CGI.

Too bad Sarah Ann couldn't answer that doctor question, huh?

Tonight's was pretty meh. Middle Guy seemed like he was having problems with the clicker, and the final question was pointless because the guy on the far right was so far ahead that none of them could catch up.

'm concerned that you took my question loosely and figuratively rather than literally.

Moss has some good lines (and steals the show) but otherwise it’s nothing great.  I would have found it funnier when I was a teenager subsisting on Channel 4 and BBC 2 alternative comedy.
