The Small Screen / Re: Better Call Saul
« Last post by Kal on September 13, 2018, 12:19:12 PM »
This episode is the first one that felt boring to me this season. I also re-watched all of Breaking Bad earlier this year and it's amazing how much happened on that show on every single episode pretty much. There were very few filler episodes and most episodes had memorable moments that moved the plot forward in some way or another.

I almost wish this show made a sudden Lost-like shift and started showing us more about the future than the past. Perhaps that is what is coming to end this season, Jimmy's transformation into Saul, losing Kim, and next season is about trying to get his life together as Jimmy again and get Kim back post-BB? Maybe it's a long shot, and it would be tough for them to focus too much on the post-BB life given that Mike, Gus and so many other key characters are gone... but on the flip side it could re-introduce Jesse and other BB characters who are still alive...

They had fun. “On the way to Phil's house,” Reilly said, dropping into his dim, thick cop voice, “I would be like, ‘Apparently’—and I had the Oakleys on—‘this individual thinks they can play their music however loud they want. Well, I got news for them. There's a thing called the law.’ ” They'd improvise, Anderson catching it all on tape. The footage would eventually yield Reilly's lonely officer in Magnolia, but at the time, the exercise scratched a new itch. He was improvising seriously, but it was also deeply, stupidly, pee-your-pants hilarious, Hoffman faking a heart attack before sprinting away cursing. “It was really, really, really, really, really, really fun,” Anderson recalled.

Awesome.  Wish that would turn up someday.

I hate that throwaway line about CMBB though. Why not go into more detail about that?

This shown is better than the no replies in this thread would have you believe.  Brie.  Maron.  Season 2 just doubles down on the campy fun with a great finale. Check it out if you haven't.  That is all.

Bojack Horseman is my favorite show right now.  That said, while yet again acclaimed, I felt season 4 was a bit lackluster compared to the heights achieved in season 2 which made me love it so, and the soul-crushing existentialism of season 3.  Still, I can't wait to watch this this weekend!

Conan was once the GOAT. Early 2000s late night was a golden age. It will be nice to reminisce.  Even just skimming the reddit thread about this, and sheer mentions of all the great sketches and bits over the years, brought a smile to my face.

Yikes, don't really get the hate for this. Can you guys provide any details? Maybe I can be convinced.

Sure, I can think of 2 or 3 moments that didn't make sense, and I definitely got some echoes of Signs, but it's certainly not as braindead as you're suggesting. I thought it was an enjoyable thriller.

November 13

it's actually the only Mary Pickford film i've seen. Mary Pickford is a huge fucking deal in movie land. the academy has a building named after her. this movie really has everything. no i mean it. The Docks of New York has more cinematic flare, but Little Annie Rooney is a lighter, more nimble depiction of city life, with what are still the most vital elements of a city movie: a diverse cast who leverage their strength and laughs against the weight of life. it's all right here.

Just saw this. It is pretty much what you would expect from the teaser trailer, which completely nails the tone. It's not as zany and fast-paced as I imagined, but it is certainly messed up and darkly comedic.

The acting ranges from shaky to great. But it's good when it matters. I have to say, I did not expect the movie to come together as strongly as it did. The latter half is actually better, and the ending does not disappoint.

MD. Saw it first when I was 14, my second Lynch movie after Elephant Man, and it changed my life forever.
