  1. The network has fell off big for me since 2016/17 or so. The random 70's and 80's horror used to be so much fun. I remember seeing stuff like Contamination and Rats: Night of Terror which was a trip seeing on tv. But aside from the kung fu there really isn't much right now.
  2. I liked this way more than Wolf of Wall Street which I thought felt way longer despite being shorter, but Silence is pretty close and one of the most underrated movies this decade. The Irishman is pretty similar thematically to Silence in a way as well. I guess the last hour or so of the Irishman hit me harder than everyone else here. The last shot especially hasn't left my mind since I saw it.
  3. Irishman was the movie of the year so far. Totally disagree with the Scorcese paint by numbers comment. The last hour or so was some of his most mature and emotional work. I love that this was the yang to Goodfellas and Casino. There's nothing glamorous or extravagant about the mob life shown in The Irishman. It paints it as a cold desolate life. Pacino, Pesci, and De Niro were all amazing. Pacino had the showy part, but nailed Hoffa's swagger and confidence. It was so much fun to watch Al having fun. Pesci was unlike anything he's done in his career. A very amazing understated and haunting performance. De Niro is still amazing at acting with eyes and the little nuances. It was his best work since Heat and Pacino's best since The Insider. The runtime didn't bother me at all since I thought something seemed to always be going on and I was engaged for the 3 and a half hours. I loved it.
  4. He said that Jesse is done with killing after Todd. I understand it was six years ago when he said it but if you are gonna bring Jesse, who has always been internally tortured by death and killing, to that level then he should've wrote a better antagonist worthy of that moment. spoilers for El Camino The Welder guys were so weakly done and seemed like a waste of an important character moment for Jesse. The weird Mexican standoff with the guy from The Mick and The Righteous Gemstones felt like a moment just designed to be cool and went against the Jesse in the first half of the movie even. I'm fine with having Jesse kill again, I just thought The Welder and other guy were pretty awful antagonists that felt like a last minute add on. The Jesse PTSD stuff in the first half though was excellently written and acted on the other hand. I think the first 40 minutes with the Jesse/Skinny Pete/Badger scenes and Jesse/Todd flashback scenes were easily the best part and the rest was kind of lacking for me.
  5. I'll go a step further and say that I've recently rewatched Breaking Bad and I didn't like this. Aaron Paul is terrific, but it's just way too long and overall unnecessary. I really liked the final image we got of Jesse in the show though. I thought the new adversaries, if you can even call them that, were pretty awful and the handling of Jesse's character in the third act didn't really sit right with me. It contradicted something Gilligan said in the commentary for the finale regarding Jesse. It's not completely bad and there are some good moments sprinkled throughout, but skip this and watch or rewatch Better Call Saul instead.
  6. Rollins in tag team workrate matches ala The Shield and his 2017 team with Ambrose is fine. Keep him far far far far far away from the Main Event.
  7. Why attack Chris Gethard of all comedians? He's supposedly a class act and incredibly nice. There wasn't even anything comedic in the podcast clips. It was just two racist guys having a terrible conversation together and making jokes and observations that were tired 20 years ago.
  8. Maybe, it's because I haven't seen that much violence and brutality in a wrestling match in a while but I absolutely adored that main event. I remember Blue Demon Jr. being pretty bland when I saw him a long time ago, but that match was just perfectly done with the hatred escalating and finally coming to the crescendo. The hammer stuff was disgusting. Both guys were fantastic. I'd probably have it as a MOTYC but I haven't seen a ton of wrestling this year.
  9. Sarah probably will get punished for your first sentence, so I bet no one hears from her for another two or three months.
  10. Wait Twin Peaks is dead? I thought it isn't officially and Lynch pops up every couple of months to say Season 4 might happen. Showtime would definitely agree to it if Lynch wants to do it, whenever that is. edit: wait I read that wrong. But, the only show revival I liked was Twin Peaks: The Return anyways.
  11. The thing that is amusing/horrifying is that this is the third WM in a row they have zero plans for Braun. I agree that it seems like he's completely screwed as a top act. He's basically Ryback when he was teaming with Curtis Axel now. I think Wrestlemania and The Royal Rumble should be two night events, but they'd still find a way to make each night's show 6 hours long.
  12. He still really tries in Tarantino movies. Django and Hateful Eight were a nice reminder of how amazing of a screen presence and a talent he can be when he tries.
  13. They both are making me want Charlotte to win at Wrestlemania.
  14. Yeah, they did something similar with Crocodile Dundee last year that had people thinking they were making a sequel.
