Film and television discussion thread

I recently watched Solo: A Star Wars Story. I'd like to recommend this review by Red Letter Media:

They're not obsessive Star Wars fans, they have not read all of the comics, but they liked the original movies. They've mostly been critics of the prequels and the new movies, but they liked (but did not love) Solo. I agree with their assessment. It worked well because it was a small film in the SW universe, though the movie was annoying in trying to shoehorn everything.

I've also recently watched Troy: Fall of a City, a BBC/Netflix production. It's 8 episodes, for a total run time of 8 hours. I give it my sincerest recommendations. It goes through a lot of the same beats as the 2004 movie, but it adds a lot of story and a lot of background. It makes different choices, for example Paris isn't as pathetic, he actually has a decent arc. The ending isn't as hopeful as the 2004 movie, in fact it's much darker. I thought that all of the main characters (Menelaus, Agamemnon, Paris, Hector, Andromechae, Prium, etc) were better done.

I might take you up on Troy because I've never properly watched it (the film) just parts of it as it's on TV a lot. I don't know why the TV show isn't on Netflix (UK version). But I dunno why I've never actually watched the film in full.

But generally I have a real hard time getting in the routine of watching TV or even films, I mean it's not like I'm so overly busy that I can't do it more than anyone else (that said I'm still probably more busy than the average person, of course I do still make time to post on hair loss forums after all).

I recently finished Suits which took a long time, good enough show, entertaining and sometimes decent storylines, mainly hateable characters however. Harvey of course exists as who 99% of men want to be (or pretend to hate on out of jealousy), but his emotional shtick is very one dimensional very quickly.

I finished Always Sunny earlier in the year, very hit and miss season by season but definitely had some great episodes and moments. Also started Arrested Development which I'm enjoying consistently, I instantly liked it as a show that doesn't go for knock out blow laughs.

But sometimes I can go for a few weeks or longer without watching an episode of anything. I've barely been watching any films at all in the last few years, I used to be able to do 2-3 in one sitting without really thinking about it

Finished watching „Manhunt: Unabomber“; oddly intrigued by the evil guy‘s intelligence and - to a lesser extent - thoughts.

The last film I saw was 2 weeks ago. It was a slow developing character/coming-of-age piece called Breath, an adaptation of the Tim Winton novel of the same name.

Bloody brilliant, moody and long film (just under two hours).
Luckily I came prepared and took some alcohol into the cinema with me, along with large empty plastic cup.

I enjoyed Solo, mostly just as an entertaining hollywood adventure movie. I've also always wanted Emilia Clarke to sit on my face so having her play one of the main characters didn't hurt

Troy has been popping up in my netflix recommendations for several weeks, but when I saw it had like 3/10 stars on IMDB I didn't bother with it. I almost always take a quick glance at the IMDB and RT ratings before committing myself to a program/movie. I know they don't flawlessly predict enjoyment potential but I do find a general correlation between IMDB ratings below 5-6/10 and feeling like I wasted my time watching something

Currently watching season 2 of Riverdale. It's kind of a mindless teeny bopper mystery but it's ridiculously entertaining. Prior to this I watched season 3 of Empire, which is a show I like, but it's clearly reaching the point that many long running shows hit around season 3-4 where it becomes the same story lines and conflicts being recycled over and over.

Also, the new season of Arrested Development wasn't great, which is disappointing as that is one of my favorite comedy shows. Also recently watched that new HBO show Barry and it wasn't very funny at all

Deadpool II fucking rocks!

I hated Avengers, thought is sucked really, really bad.

Deadpool II, especially with Domino, rocked.

I fantasize about fucking Domino all the time. I would
be happy just to finger her.

In fact, I would like to "get lucky" with her.

I had watched a few episodes and got busy and then forgot about it..it's one I intend to binge one of these days when I have time.

I can't get that into films anymore, my brain needs a series even if a limited one..I usually wind up watching something odd from 70s or 80s.

I recently watched a tv show called "Flaked" on Netflix. Its pretty fun to watch. The actor playing the main role, Will Arnett, has a receding hairline, possibly NW1.5 - NW2 but he is damn sexy and pulls off this look very nicely. Image

I watched it a while back. I liked it,kind of quirky.
He’s totally sexy and I’m pretty sure Someone told me that’s his real GF who plays opposite of him who in my opinion is really hot.

This guy is sexy? I seriously would not have picked this.

I have to ask... are you female?
