I remember this getting into my "awareness radar" a while back when it first appeared on trailers.  I actually like every sentiment in the trailer, the cinematography is superb, who doesnt like the directorial efforts of James Gunn (aks Guardians of the Galaxy) ... and that story.. I just had to watch this because of the incredible idea of a COUNTER origin story to Superman..and where it leads to.

Well... not anywhere kind, and extraordinarily gruesome... if that last scene from Jeepers Creepers (the first one) broke your heart, then hold on...  I stayed till the end of this macabre mish mash for that reveal... ayup gruesome...but this is nothing that the trailers did not forewarn us about.

hey... what about that eyeball scene huh ^^

 

:ooo:

Anyone seen swamp thing? So aggravated it only got one season due to production costs. The only great thing DC has made in years and probably the only show worth getting the dceu app for and they already killed it. So mad.

For fans of the superhero genre definitely check out amazon prime's new show "the boys". Fantastic show. Can't say enough good things about it. Not kid friendly just fyi.

I got Amazon Prime free for a month... awesome! and comes with a bunch of shows not on Netflix...PLUS..I can also try its feeder video channels for free for a month... Hayu for top chef and Shudder for Horror ( who woulda thunk it :D)   First time I kept repeatedly checking out was The Boys... looks hard core, violent and just so fresh ... tonight gonna dig into it, and will probably do two episodes a night.... here we go!

HOly chalah breakd...just... holeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...just first episode was just ... deadly.  I'd never think that the super hero niche could go anywhere spectacularly new or exciting...but this dead... and in such a such a smart, edgy and dark dark way... I can never guess what's going to happen, and we're holding out for one episode per night... we' have umber three tonight... first episode... POOR  Starlight!!.. Guys... are we seriously seeing  a metaphor of the "Me Too" story being played out here with Supes as a the villain/victims?  Brilliant... cant tear my eyes away

This has to be one of the most thoroughly enjoyable viewings I've seen on TV Lately. In fact, maybe one of the most enjoyable Heroe sagas I've seen ever.  Homelander is just so... NUTS... he's so one dimensional, as compared to the other characters and I think thats what makes him the most terrifying.  The way he's been directed, make up and almost-oldschool- painted ventrilloguist dummy face... terrifying to watch.. you never know what he'll do and thats unnerving.  Cant believe theres only two more left!!

Stuff I've been watching lately on Netflix:

Love, Death and Robots

This a truly eclectic group of 18 animated shorts, each one about 10-15 minutes.  There's no unifying them, other than they all have a fantasy/sci-fi bent.  The tone and style of each episode is very different, ranging from cartoony lighthearted comedies to highly detailed heavy thrillers.

Toast of London

This show is so dumb and so hilarious.  Matt Berry was in the IT Crowd which was where I heard of him.  It's the same type of British humor.

I loved robots... pretty gruesome, violent, no holds barred.. I still cant decide which of them I loved the most.. but the entire experience was pretty breathless at times, though I did think some of them were a little slow.  And... dont throw stuff at me :tomato:...but.. I never really got brit style humor... I know im horrible

:lol:

Finished watching the last episode of The Boys... just.. SO SATISFYING... yes

and... did we want more... YES

I could hardly process what happened...just thinking that the sentiment to drive us to where the last scene got us to was just too good...  

this is one of the best things I've seen on TV lately...

what do you do for an encore... what else is there...

:cry:

Then im down for a second season! It's unfortunate one of my friends at work said she stopped watching it after three or four episodes...said the violence was just too over the top for her...and...ayup..I get it :blink:...

In the mean time...I think I only have like ten or twelve days left of my free membership with Amazon and all the other side channels that come for free with it...  but for now..its back to classic Netflix...

and... helloooooooooooooooooo The Dark Crystal...

Pure beauty... we are enthralled and watching one episode per night..its just as gruesome (in a kind muppetesque way :lol: ) as ever

:devil:

I watched the first episode last night.  There are 10 episodes, and each is an hour long! It looks amazingly authentic.  Really visually appealing.

I can't tell if they're tweaking the backstory that was established in the first movie, or if they're just waiting to reveal the "truth" about the bad guys.

It's intended to be a straight prequel. I don't recall the details of the original. But I gotta get my gf to watch this now!

Yeah it's a prequel, and almost everything about it lines up perfectly (tone, visuals, story details), It just seems to be ignoring the big revelation at the end of the first movie, but again that may just be something they're waiting to deal with later.
