Dune trailer

I heard a rumor they might not put the movie out until next year though, because people just aren't going to theaters enough for it to likely recoup what was spent on it.

I was hoping the same day movie on demand thing would catch on ( you pay something like $30 if you want to see movies out now ), but I guess it didn't. I would pay that for this thing.

Dogs of Berlin

Mad stuff, I ain't moving to fucking Germany. I enjoyed it - strange mix of mediocre directing/dialogue with excellent writing in many parts. Good actors and over all fun to watch, I recommend it and looking forward to 2nd season if they have one. So, not a classic, but good.

We just finished up The Third Day and Lovecraft Country.

Lovecraft Country was pretty good, but rather uneven.  Third Day was interesting, but if you don't watch the 12 hour livestream in the middle, you kind of miss part of the point.

Mr. Frost

Can something be shit and awesome? Yes! Mr. Frost is cheap, zero production with silly directing and music score. That said, I love this movie. Hard to find any more, but found it on Youtube. The resolution is terrible, significantly less than SD, so for those of you who enjoy watching movies on your gadgets, you'll enjoy a much better picture viewing on a small screen. The theme is rich, though shallowly treated, and Goldblum is in top form. Few bits of stupidity ( the liquifying the ring act, made no sense, would've been a better movie if it kept his character's authenticity in question for a while ), but in the end fun to watch ( mostly ) and an interesting discussion on religion vs scientific atheism ( most likely think I'm being a bit generous here given some of the amateurish aspects, but essentially this is what the movie is about ).

The Undoing looked fairly generic, possibly interesting, but on the basis of just being an HBO (proper) show, we checked it out.  First episode was fairly well done, so we'll be watching the rest.

Rewatched this Nick Cage triple that feels like a trilogy: Face/Off, The Rock, Con Air.

Holding off on The Good Place season 4 till my kiddo has a chance to catch up.

I was wondering about this one, bit dicey with the marketing so haven't committed yet. Thanks for letting us know.

Yeah, the marketing was a little weird, but I actually think it "worked" pretty well.  Because we spent the whole episode in suspense about what was actually going to go down and who was actually implicated in it.

Sounds good :)

Cop Shows

Unforgotten - pretty good, if you like Euro-cop shows, you'll like it. I like how they introduce the story, you see different people in the first episode who appear to have nothing to do with each other and by the end, you see the beginning of the weave, it's pretty cool. About cold cases.

The Valhalla Murders - Islandic, I watched it dubbed. I enjoyed it, some weak after acting here and there, but fun to watch.

Dogs of Berlin - I may have mentioned this one already, pretty good, German show, watched it dubbed and was descent. Some good writing with this one, I liked it.
