Expanse (Season 5, eps 5): 9.5/10Expanse (Season 4): 8/10
it took 4 years but it got better.
1) Klaes Ashford, The pirate turned 2nd in command of the Behemoth:
Why did he do something as dangerous as boarding Marco Inaros's ship instead of blasting it with torpedoes?
and only 3 people vs god knows how many onboard???
for a grizzled old guy with decades of experience, this made no sense!
2) Instead of Tow cable, why not just xfer energy from the Roci to the Belter ship?
3) the Miller arc at the end was WTFbbq!?!
seemed like the change was shoehorned in there and made no sense.
have you watched Triangle ? - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1187064/referenceI recommend the new release THE NIGHT HOUSE. Like reading a mystery with so many twists and turns you can't imagine or predict the outcome. Several times I thought I had figured it out but all of my predictions were wrong. I love when a story/director tries something different from the norm especially with a horror film.View attachment 49450
Good to know because I really enjoyed the soundtrack even when watching on HBO MaxWatched Mortal Kombat again last night and liked it even more the second time. I gave it a 10/10 last time but after reflecting on it last time I think I'd change it to 9/10 for 2 reasons.
1. There was no actual Mortal Kombat tournament. That said, I still liked the story and thought it was awesome.
2. Making a new character in Cole when there was really way more than enough lore already in the MK world that did not warrant the need for a new character. His arcana was also pretty lame. But again, I enjoyed it still and liked the story with him.
Also note worthy is I bought the bluray and holy shit the sound was light years better than watching it on HBO Max (expected). I blasted it and the soundtrack in the movie is really f'ing good.
It was just very muffled on there and the bass track was lacking hard. I had it set to like +5 or +10 and i NEVER watch movies at anything past like -10, maybe I'll go to -7.5 depending on the movie, because it's just too loud.Nobody
I really enjoyed the movie but can't figure out how to rate it. I want to say something like 9.5/10 but I can't tell if that is just because there is so much garbage being released on Netflix, Amazon Prime etc right now or not. I was actually starting to wonder if I was developing ADHD because I couldn't sit through movies without fast forwarding or dicking around on my phone. But this movie held my attention completely

Meh.Watched World War Z again. 8/10
My favorite Zombie movie for some reason, can't pin it down. The globe trotting mystery is probably a significant draw for me.
Nobody is good? I just checked the trailer and it looks like Saul becoming an action star with a couple really bad lines, at least in the trailer.It was just very muffled on there and the bass track was lacking hard. I had it set to like +5 or +10 and i NEVER watch movies at anything past like -10, maybe I'll go to -7.5 depending on the movie, because it's just too loud.
I watched Nobody last weekend and also thought it was really good.
That's true, compared to an action movie that is 75% action, it is not. However, the bigger shootout/heist scene is still considered one of the best action/shootout sequences of all time. And it has other action. It's like an action movie with a brain. The characters had actual development, the movie felt like a story, not just a vehicle to insert action into and disregarding any other movie element except that.I wouldn't even call Heat an action movie. It is a slow burn movie with a couple great action scenes in it. I mean it's 3 hours, and there are what, like 3-4 action scenes in it?
That's your problem right there. You wanted a story with character development and "other movie elements". What are you thinking of here ? You perhaps did not know the film has the same writer and producer as the John Wick series........ And it has other action. It's like an action movie with a brain.

who cares about it being PC or not, I certainly didn't. It was just a goofy action film with your standard caricature characters, from the group of 'high-end' thugs that got on the bus to harass a young girl, to the evil Russian sociopath mobster collecting art - everything was a generic trope that's been done a million times before and they were pretty good ones, I'll admit. But then I mean Christopher Lloyd getting in on the action with his shotgun, it was so stupid my brain hurt.That's your problem right there. You wanted a story with character development and "other movie elements". What are you thinking of here ? You perhaps did not know the film has the same writer and producer as the John Wick series.
So BAM BAM BAM.
But not just that. What sets Nobody apart even in its genre from Wick and endless other similar efforts of righteous retribution is Bob Odenkirk 's enthusiasm for his work, for what other lead characters would consider inherent difficulties.Where Wick's character goes, damn I have to kill half of Manhattan to get my dog back, Odenkirk's says, I'm just begging one of you 8 guys behind me to make a move, and when they do, he, like Mohommed Ali, delivers on his promise. Never seen such fun in the midst of such violence (except in vodeo games).
AFAIK it's never been done quite like this before either. This is not a PC film and action is not avoided, as if the message is, we all are animals at heart and this too is life.
