TV & movies
« on November 18th, 2013, 08:03 PM »
Just thought I should create a generic topic to discuss TV shows and movies as you like.
Because, well, there's already a Doctor Who topic for instance, but AFAIK it's on the Private area, and, well, it's only talk about the new episodes, so why bother with privacy...

Feel free to use this topic, or not, or just create other topics, I don't mind. Just thought it'd be nice to have a generic one. Maybe it'd be best to have a TV topic and a movie topic, I dunno.

I'll just pull a Shawn™ trick, and start with... "What did you think of yesterday's shows? Homeland/OUAT/The Walking Dead/etc."

PS: this is my 300th topic, apparently... :P
Well, that's one "Top poster" stat that I won't have for another few years, if not forever, because I usually prefer to re-use existing topics... ;)

Haven't got around to seeing Homeland yet, so that I'll reservee for when I have - but its prob. great, as always. ;)

I saw 2 movies this weekend, one was for the kids mainly(but a lot of fun for us grownups too) called "Flåklypa" - and the other one was Red2.

I don't know if you ever saw the first Red - but I loved it. :) All those old-timers really got it going in the action parts, and the slapstick humour all through was just hilarious. Bruce Willis: awesome, Helen Mirren, more so. The others really just as good. The movie really didn't bring anything new in the genre..but it was just well executed and fun.

(btw, speaking of TV/movie topics, I've spent a lot of time in Protendo on its "moviereview" section, and gonna add a "TV" section too. Its one of those things that are part blog, part discssion - with some social features added in. Thus perfect for me. :) )

It definitely wasn't bad.

OUAT was good, too. Still as silly as ever, but the story actually progressed a lot, unlike earlier episodes.
The Walking Dead was one of those 'stand-alone' episodes, like 'Clear' in the previous season. Great stuff, albeit a bit slow and very, very dry. But I'm a sucker for David Morrissey, so that's fine.

I read your review of 'Europa Report' recently, that one went under my radar, I've added it to my watch-list. ;) (Although I don't like found footage movies, I can sometimes make exceptions for them, as in Chronicles.)

Nope, never saw it. I lost interest in Bruce Willis after, hmm... his appearance in Friends, maybe? Really, he didn't do anything great after The Sixth Sense, I think. I love him, though, but not enough to watch a movie based on his name, unlike, say, Kevin Spacey. I'll watch any crap with Kevin Spacey in it. (Thankfully, he usually makes wise decisions.)

I'll take note of that.

Yeah, it's a feature you've worked a lot on; currently, the blog feature in Wedge is broken, I'm not sure why, I'll really have to add some UI to change the board type. It's so damn easy. And I'm so damn lazy about writing UI... Look at contact lists, I could just re-use code from Noisen for that, but no... I'm just not doing it. :lol:

Community has just been cancelled... I'm sad. This had been one of my favorite shows of the last few years. And to think that for once, they ended it in a way that didn't bring any closure, unlike the series enders of the last two seasons... How ironic.

Ah, well. At least, Dan Harmon gets more time to devote to Rick & Morty... Which was my favorite new show this year. :P

And now Believe is canceled too.
Not surprised here. But it still hurts. Was a damn fine effort. Hopefully we get closure at the end...
