Yeah. Getting towards the end of E2. Story’s picking up, and found a little bass lol. There’s a light comedic element too. Not sure if it adds to or takes away from the campiness.
So far it’s pretty fun.
The humor is hit and miss. I think Cos put it pretty well in another thread with "Egyptian Venom". It does put me in mind of the Venom movies a little bit with the jokey voices in his head.

I tried to watch the new season of "Travel Man:48 Hours in...". Original Host Rich Ayoade was replaced with another guy who took the same shtick and turned it to 11. 2 minutes and 20 seconds is how long I could watch it before turning it off. All of Rich's 9 (short) seasons were quirky but pleasant and very Britishly dry humour (yes, OU, f-u stupid spell checker). The new guy is terrible. I never turned off anything quicker, which included probably end-of-the-internet stuff in my heyday.

Probably for the 50th time lol. I thought it was interesting because what Carpenter created was like an "Oh yeah" moment. A villain without character or clear motivation beyond to kill. In a way I still think he's "the" definition of evil because of that. I liked the randomness of it. Laurie Strode just happened to drop off a key at the old Myers house. It could've never been done again. I LOL when Carpenter said "I dunno??? I know. She'll be his sister." For part 2 after a six pack of beer LOL. Another stroke of genius IMO. Plus Carpenter really tapped into this super human force of evil like it became mythic. I also think photographer Dean Cundey doesn't get enough credit. No movie after parts 1-3 ever had the mood right after. Even the robots in part 3 had a super human force esthetic to them, but after that Myers was just some dude in a mask in bland backdrop. There's some logistics problems with the original due to the boogeyman setup, but overall I still love the repeat.

I also think the dialogue in the car in the opening. Dr. Loomis referring to Myers as "It", and the bit about "he''ll barely be able to stand up" about using thorazine in front of a judge and Loomis' "that's the idea." I think if you can really tap into that one person believes (Loomis) while the rest of the town thinks your nuts than you have something great in drama.

Was watching cable and had to decide between Atomic Blonde and Split. James McEvoy is sensational in those two. Also Charlize Theron as the icy cool spy in AB. Her fight scenes are pretty excellent.

Just started the newest Batman on HBOMax.....
Oh thats out now?? I might have it too!

*Edit: I do! I'll be watching it later. I hear Pattinson actually makes a decent Batman. I have to admit, I had my doubts but I think I'm unfairly hanging Twilight on him. He's done some pretty good stuff since then and is actually a capable actor.

He still looks a bit....skinny. But otherwise so far so good....

I hear it's the darkest, almost horror tone.
It is a bit on the dark side, and has a dark look to back that up somewhat. Good cast overall but not sure we needed another version at this point otoh. Oh, and it's nearly 3 hrs long....

You seem to feel the same as I do. Not bad, decently cast, too frigging dark. Like literally dark. Like they must have a 1 light bulb per house law in Gotham. Can't see half of what's happening in half the scenes. It is long too. Seems like it ends at one point, then all of a sudden there's another 45 minutes to go...

Pattinson has some acting chops but he's the least intimidating Batman, imo. He is kinda small and skinny for the dark knight.

Everybody seems to be remembering bloated Ben and forgets that Keaton was the puniest Batman. Oh, and I appreciated Pattinson’s restraint in the voice department and Bale’s is still the silliest.

Russian Doll, 2nd season is on Netflix now. Like the 1st season, but I'm a fan of Natasha Lyonna though.

Well so far, season 2 of Russian Doll, I'm just getting into E4 of season 2. I believe the writings off? storyline isn't as interesting as season 1. Still gonna watch all 7 episodes though.
