Has anyone watched Designated Survivor? Think the season finale was this past Wednesday(I am/was a couple weeks behind). I've liked it, though to be fair, I've liked most things with Keifer Sutherland. Lots of twists and turns throughout, and they borrowed a bit of the Game of Thrones philosophy of killing off characters you thought were going to be, at least, somewhat important going forward.
It Comes At Night - Fairly mediocre, had some potential and I was fine with what the story was doing but it just felt under cooked as a film. Having an open ended finale and leaving the audience with questions is fine but I don't feel like they made any attempt to answer any of the film's questions.
Wonder Woman - Wasn't bad, had some good moments but not enough to put it up with other big blockbuster super hero films. Honestly felt like the action sequences brought the film down. The "slowing down the frame" bit got played out real quick and was something I think they used entirely too much.
Supernatural is firing on all cylinders. This 13th season has been fantastic and tonight's episode was another really strong one.
Very happy the show was renewed for a 14th season. It's surpassed Stargate Atlantis and is pretty much right there with SG1 as being my favorite show.
Easily the best show on network TV, IMO.
In other CW news, I haven't watched a single episode of any of the Arrowverse shows since the big four show crossover. I'll probably go back and watch the rest of Legends at some point, but I'm done with Arrow/Flash/Supergirl and don't see me returning to them at any point.
Your boy Kid Flash has been on Legends lately. Supergirl hasn't been on since Legends took it's time slot while Black Lightning is in the old Legends spot. Flash has been...meh, I like the villain and the storyline, but I hate the new sidekick. Arrow is...why is this show still on??? Kill it...kill it with fire.
Recently saw Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Rambo Last Blood.
LOVED Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and dug the new Rambo a lot too although it is really not a Rambo movie at all. It is basically Death Wish with the role of Charles Bronson played by Jason Vorhees in fatigues.
In the past few weeks I have binge watched all of Bosch on Amazon Prime. If you are into hard boiled cop shows such as Justified or Longmire etc, this is a better than average take on the genre set in LA.
I just watched the new Terminator movie, and my thoughts are, it's decent but could have been so much more.
Terminator franchise is getting as bad as the Halloween and Friday the 13th movies with the constant retconning.
We now have sequals to T2 in which Sarah has died and John lived, and one where John lives and Sarah dies, and one where John lives and becomes an evil cyborg....
That aside, this is another one of those "Me too updates" of popular franchises that make sure all of the primary roles go to women, same as the last Halloween movie. I have no problem with that if it is done well but a lot of this just felt needlessly hacked together from a story POV. The most interesting part of the story is Arnold's T-800 having no purpose after completing its original mission and randomly moving to south Texas and starting a family and an interior decorating business (LOL)... that is a movie I would watch a million times before I popped this one in again.
My main disappointment here is, with the return of Cameron in creative and Linda Hamilton, if they would have toned down the CGI and went more old school on the effects, and had a script that was more concerned with doing justice to the original story and visual tones vs. cashing in on the feminist action movie wave, this could have been something really fun and special. Instead, it's just okay.
Okay. Growing up I was a big fan of the Rambo movies. Dug the story and watching Sly make baddies go baboom.... I was very dissatisfied with Rambo Last Blood. Went to see it in the theater and left thinking it was a bad action movie just going through the paces and relying on violence and gore as its lone selling point. There is a new extended cut version on Amazon. It doesn't solve all the problems I had with the movie but the first ten minutes alone make it much better, adding in backstory and human aspects and trying things in from the past. The theatrical cut of this movie did the entire thing a disservice. If you are gonna watch this movie, watch the extended or don't bother.
