I saw that and meant to re-watch it on psychedelic drugs but never quite got around to it. It's that sort of movie though. Zabriskie Point, Holy Motors kind of thing.

I don't think it's much of a hidden gem, but I watched this last night and enjoyed it a lot. I was in my kitchen about half an hour after the film had ended and went "oh, I get it" to myself. If you're into your hard crush or just really fancy Jake Gyllenhaal I can highly recommend it, for everyone else it's still worth a look.

I don't think I like films that don't make me feel uncomfortable, I wonder if that's a problem?

TOS - any episode with Harry Mudd

Well, at least we can agree she felt better in DS9 where she served a purpose and had good chemistry. Much like the poster above you, I actually quite like her though. She feels like a real person, a big kid and hopeless romantic who is the stern silent types worst nightmare (Worf/Odo). I've known plenty of women like that, albeit it is the childless 30-50 something with unicorn shit all over the place.

I still think that it would've been better for Worf and Troi to end up together and for Mr. Woof to suffer an in-law who torments him but is good for his son. Worf in DS9 wasn't my cup of tea if I'm honest, he abandoned his kid and everything. What the fuck.

It wasn't his best but it was still pretty solid. Decent anecdotal commentary on the waxing and waning of Hollywood celebrity culture, cancel culture, and other cancers of the modern world.

To claim Dave Chappelle is "anti-woke" is laudable. The article - and many others like it - don't even touch on his lampooning of the hate crime hoax that was the Jussie Smollett case. Writers like Taylor Hosking live in blissful ignorance and hold fast to their beliefs of a false dichotomy between comedy and commentary where there may be no moderate middle ground.

tl;dr: basically what >>22850 said, innit.

The one on the left is potentially a bit of a minx, but I assumed she was a young looking forty-something who had slightly overdone it on the foundation rather than someone in their late twenties.

There's only one contestant over the age of 40, so I suspect this series might be duller than usual.

I wasn't expecting much from this, but I was pleasantly suprised. There was only a couple of properly on-the-nose bits of satire and it did a lot more than mug off at superhero films.

Shame about Urban's wonky accent and I took a little while to warm up to the main character after he sold a woman a "premium" HDMI cable in one of the first scenes.

I just came off a binge watch of the show I loved it.

I've only read the first couple but the plot is quite different in where Compound-V fits into the universe and that changes everything. They also tweeked it to critique the phenomenon of the MCU in the real world.

Simon Pegg is in it playing his own father as a nod to the comic.

Kyle Urban is a fine Butcher maintaining both his sinister streak and his charm, (unfortunately his cockney accent is a bit uncanny valley at times).

Superheroes are less the subject of ridicule to sneer at in this and more treated as terrifying things you would never want to exist. There are still elements of the nods and winks of poking fun in the comics but more subdued, it is more 'gritty' I'd say.

My biggest criticism is one of the locations they shot at feels more like a counter strike level than the real world. Complete with barrels and waist high crumbled concrete walls to hide behind. which on the scale of criticism is pretty low.

Homelander comes across as the most interesting and complex character.

How has a thread about this not been made yet?

My brains just about managed to survive the first 3 episodes but it's so incredibly fucked up. Episode 2 in particular legitimately 'triggered' me to the point I came close to having a full blown panic attack.

I don't remember any of the stuff in the first two seasons coming close to these new episodes in terms of quality or brutality. Though I suppose the Christmas special was a sign of things to come. I'm guessing now that Netflix have taken it up it's got more resources and Brooker's perhaps taken less of a role in production. Either way his screenwriting abilities seem to just be getting better and better.

Watched Detective Pikachu tonight; If you are a fan of pokemon (as in you still actively play them as opposed to just nostalgically remember red and blue and tried pokemon go out) There is probably something you'll get out of it.

If you have no real interest in pokemon I don't expect you to find much charm in it as the ridiculous premise isn't taken to the absurd levels you would hope (the best parts of it are all in the trailer), it isn't that the film is dull but if you aren't in the 'know' I could see you getting lost and not picking up on details.

There is still fun to be had. And it is hard for me to separate all of my knowledge collected over the years from what someone would be able to pick up fresh, if that makes sense.

I might be being a bit harsh. It probably is a fine film to shovel popcorn into your mouth too. There is nothing wrong with it as such.

It is a detective story, but not a mystery that I think the audience can solve among with the characters. I don't think in 10 years it will be remembered for anything other than its novelty.

That's the "teal" half of the equation. Evidently there isn't much sunshine on the Central Police patch. Lots of the indoor scenes have a red-orange look to them, as do the night scenes (understandable with sodium lighting).

Not really a proper spoiler, but in later series we see inside the Deputy Chief Constable's office, and it's heavy on wooden panelling. Very orangey.

I've just watched Starship Troopers, not realising it was directed by the same fella that directed RoboCop, and thought that the 'in-universe TV' scenes were uncannily familiar.

Just rewatched Letterkenny.

It's one of the only shows that makes me consistently laugh out loud. Some of the cultural references and slang take a while to get (or you need to look them up), but it's endlessly quoteable and so intensely deadpan.

My one qualm is that lead character is also the writer and director, and always writes himself getting the girl and winning the fight. There is very little tension.
