Anyone watching this show?  One of the best shows on Netflix without a doubt.

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / What Happened To Monday
« on: August 21, 2017, 05:51:23 PM »
What's the solution to the following problem: Orphan Black + John Wick=?  Stumped?  Not surprised.  In fact, I doubt any of you even thought such a movie would be made... or even conceived.  However, the good folks at  *in the Santino Marella voice* the Flix of the Net have seen fit to give us what we never knew we wanted in the first place.

Still stumped?  Ok, I'll end your suffering.  The answer is Netflix's new sci-fi action flick What Happened To Monday!!!  YAAAAAAY!!!!  If you appreciate a fast-paced action romp with a tremendous and CAPABLE female lead then you'll likely enjoy this film.  I'm biased because I've absolutely love Noomi Rapace.  I think she has such a powerful presence whenever's she on screen.  Not only are her performances so earnest and empathetic, but she's actually got the physique to actually sell the action incredibly well. 

I haven't seen Atomic Blonde, but I'm frankly tired of seeing weak, soft women playing action stars.  Noomi Rapace clearly puts in the time in the weight room and literally looks like she could tear ScarJo and Charlize Theron apart at the same time in real life.  She's not depicted unrealistically either, except for one clearly ridiculous scene.  However, even though I was scratching my head, I was having too much fun by that point to turn off the movie.  I WANTED TO KNOW WTF HAPPENED TO MONDAY!!!  Just like in the John Wick movie, particularly the second one, the movie is moving too fast for you to stop and over-analyze various plot points/holes.  Just like Keanu, Noomi hooks you with a sincere performance that has you rooting at her victories, and getting bummed out when she takes an L.

The context for my enjoyment of this film is that I watched it after watching a pretty shitty series called The Defenders (also on Netflix).  WHTM had the dual effect of highlighting what quality action set pieces on a budget should like, while making that Defenders series look that much more like dog bleep.  It was nice to see proper violence. 

Ultimately this is a sci-fi action flick made on a budget so modulate your expectations accordingly.  My primary criticism, aside from "the scene" is that this should've been a mini-series with maybe 6-8 episodes.  There's not enough time to build the world.  It's 2 hours long, but it basically plays like Minority Report if it started in the second or third act.  No real plot development, it's just off to the races.  With that said, if you appreciate a chick who can go like Ric Flair before his heart attack, and some good clean fun for the whole family, check this flick out.  You won't be disappointed.

Current TV Shows / Attack On Titan

This last episode of AOT ( S2e5) is one​ of the best of the series so far.  Really blown away by the character development.  People toss that shit around, but its absolutely magical how they can take characters that were ignored in S1 and make you misty-eyed about them in S2.  Storytelling is just on a different level in this show.  After 4 years off the anime is only getting BETTER!

West African migrants smuggled into Libya are being traded and sold at what witnesses have described as modern-day slave markets.

Survivors who were able to either escape or buy their freedom told the U.N.’s International Organisation for Migration (IOM) that the trade was so commonplace it took place in open public spaces.

HE'S BACK, BITCHES!!!  AND THEY SHOULDA GIVEN THAT ***** MONEY!!!

I've thusfar only seen the first special, but if it's any indication of where the collection is going he's definitely earning his $60M.  He's so honest and so edifying while doing​ some real edgy material at times.  He's now officially an old-school/throwback comedian and he's not afraid to occupy that cultural space.  Nobody does it better than King Dave.

Well... that was the second best movie of the year so far.  Gritty, intensely violent thriller that delivers exactly what the audience came for.  How would you react if this scenario played out at your office?
