Re: Trumpocalypse Now

I hope Boris Johnson's big victory in the UK won't empower Trump and his voters in 2020.

Re: BBC's His Dark Materials

Yeah...
The intercision scenes did not feel as traumatic as they should be. Lyra and Pan did not even share a significant one-on-one scene after being rescued by Mrs. Coulter. :?
EDIT:
Ruth Wilson continues to deliver, though.

Re: Dark Waters (2019)

I don't know (yet) how much of this film was fictionalized, but damn this was depressing. Ruffalo was good.

Re: Radiothread

Not digging the lyrics, but the instrumental is excellent.

EDIT:
I'm not an expert, but it's interesting that the audio mixing feels different than the average Radiohead song. Radiohead's bass are not as "punchy" as it is here, and the songs generally have a more "uniform" volume levels.

Re: BBC's His Dark Materials

That was an interesting episode that would totally lose momentum when it flashed to the scenes of the kid living in modern day England with his mom. There is only three episodes left and I'm still not sure what that part of the story is about. Minor spoilers for books 2 & 3 Give it time, he will be...

Re: BBC's His Dark Materials

I don't mind most of the expository dialogue, but that narration threw me off as well.

Wanna dive into MGS at some point, where to start with so many of them? The very first?

Latest episode might be my favorite. Felt more tight and focused than the others. Watchmen on Sunday, this on Monday. Pretty good fantastical 1-2 by HBO
Yeah, the bear CGI was impressive. Lyra is starting to shine too.

Re: BBC's His Dark Materials

I'm disappointed in one thing with this series: The dæmons do not feel alive . I get that it's very hard to portray them like in the books (due to CGI and need of additional voice actors), but the show hasn't shown the intimacy between humans and their dæmons. The most glaring example: After Pan was...
