  1. What TV Show Are You Watching?

    I think its going to be looked back upon as a cult classis somewhat like Twin Peaks. Its fairly perfect in nearly all aspects of show creating.
  2. What movie are you watching?

    It was a nice little gem. Slow, simple but captivating. Also has one of the best single shot scenes I have ever seen.

    I am pretty shocked his writing skills have arguably only gotten better with time. The longevity of Curb is pretty astonishing. I think pretty strongly that he is the best comedic writer of our generation. I cant think of anyone that comes close really. And there is argument that he is also the best crossover comedic writer / actor as well. He is one hell of a funny man.
  4. What TV Show Are You Watching?

    Keep watching. Bookeem Woodbine in S2 is just as good. I have no idea how his career didn't take off after that role.
  5. What would you trade for Adams?

    I think he gets moved to Dallas for a 2021 R2 and 2022 R3. I would be surprised if a safety looking to get paid 18M+ per season nets a R1.

    He is pretty amazing in Bad Lieutenant as well. Not to mention Kick ***, The Rock (IMO the best 'fun' action movie ever made and Michael Bay's only saving grace), Lord of War. And while the movie overall is meh, in Mom and Dad he stole basically every scene. When he is on, he is so freaking fun. Its seemingly become trendy to overlook Jerry Maguire but he was terrific in that as well.

    When Nick Cage is trying, and finds the right scrip, there isn't a better actor in the business.

    Three Kings was the most depth Mark has ever shown as an actor IMO. He was good in The Departed but it wasnt anything out of the ordinary for him in terms of character. In Three Kings he was actually out of his element at times, and doing well.
  9. What movie are you watching?

    Con Air and Twister are great corny 90's fun, but IMO Fifth Element is a legitimately special move that should be on anyone's Top 100 list. Its more than 90's corny fun IMO.
  10. The Batman is Robert Pattinson

    As long as Penguin is an alcoholic or recovering alcoholic, Ferrell will do fine. Literally all of his good work is when boozing is involved in his backstory lol
  11. Favorite Vietnam Movie

    I was more referring to the ancillary characters, but I do agree it is a personal vibe. The guys like Keith David, Francesco Quinn, Forest Whitaker, Kevin Dillon, John McGinley, Reggie Johnson, Mark Moses, Tony Todd, etc. Those side characters all seemed so real and developed despite minute screen time IMHO. AN is a masterpiece, don't get me wrong. I was just commenting on how the full ensemble of Platoon stood out to me as very fleshed out.

    Ruth as well. I could talk for hours on how well the tough girl characters in Ozarks are fleshed out. Ozarks should be a template on how to create gritty, tough, at times relatable, flawed, interesting female characters. Its like a workshop on how to not create Mary Sues.
  13. Favorite Vietnam Movie

    No, I just didn't find that Platoon created characters that seemed so vivid and real without the need of explicit backstory. I didn't quite feel the same way about AN, which I do love BTW.

    Apocoplyse Now is much more esoteric, and extremely well made for its time (The scenes taking that seaside town hold up incredibly well for 1978), but where it falters is in developing the character of the Swift Boat crew IMO. You can watch Platoon and feel like Forrest Whittaker, a guy on screen for maybe 10-15 minutes, is someone that you know intimatley. It just hits this stride where the side characters are incredibly fleshed out and developed in such limited screen time. Its similar to the Space Marines in Aliens in that way, you feel the directors wrote out full bibliographies for each character even if they are limited on screen.

    I may simply be a horrible person but by the end of Season 1, I could not wait to see Hannah Baker die. She was about as likable as Ralph Finness in Schindlers List . The show was basically cardboard cutouts of all the most basic HS tropes and in the end it glorified suicide to such an extent that teen rates actually rose for some time if I remember correctly.
