The Tomorrow War was a great movie. No woke BS. It's on Amazon Prime.

Tomorrow war wasnt bad at all. and i think its probably been mentioned, but JA17 has an uncanny resemblance to chris pratt in this film. 

I thought it was great for about 75%. The final act felt rushed and just plain goofy. Like they didn't know how to end it, so they just ripped off Alien.

I'm a few years late (which just gives me more seasons to binge), but just got into and am really loving Bosch on Amazon Prime. Smart, gritty, decently paced. I had read a couple of Harry Bosch books way back in the day, but for some reason never watched the series until now.

 

For fans of very slow burn foreign language fare, Katla on Netflix is worth checking out. Icelandic with subtitles (or I suppose you could watched in dubbed English if that's your thing) set in a remote mostly abandoned town impacted by a year-long (and counting) volcanic eruption. A bit sci-fi, a bit supernatural, very moody/creepy.

The Serpent on Netflix is Very well done... gotta be able to handle some super-creepy, based on a true-story, stuff.
 

good 70's feel, great writing/acting/soundtrack.  Jenna Whatsherbucket is supercute

 

and apparently the true story had to be tamed down a bit, as the creators felt it was too weird to be believable.

Just finished The Story Of Late Night on CNN tonight.  An easy show to binge, just 6 episodes.  But they did not get into how much of a sneaky weasel Jay Leno is.

1971, The Year That Music Changed Everything on Apple TV.  I am about 4 or 5 episodes in, i was 8 in 1971 so i really wasn't in tune with it as it was going on, this documentary is pretty intense.  Once i am done with this I am going to do the ?uestlove documentary about the Harlem Woodstock, during that same 71-72 time frame.  Some really good stuff.

McCartney 321 is absolutely must watch on Hulu.  Rick Rubin points out things in Beatles songs that surprises Sir Paul.  And to see Macca still get so excited about the music.  Such a wonderful 6 episode docuseries

Started watching Schmigadoon on Apple TV, it's a cross between a musical and a comedy....

 

 

I watched the first episode last night. Pretty entertaining, but may be a tough premise to keep interesting all series (and I enjoy a good musical). Episode 1 was good.

Also watched the first episode of this last night. Really well-done and will definitely watch more. That said, I really wish Rick Rubin would put on some f'ing shoes.

Loved watching Rubin work with the Avett Brothers in their documentary “Make it Last.”  He’s definitely an eccentric type of dude, but one of the best record producers ever.

The wife and I are starting this tonight.  Was also recommended to us this past weekend by some friends.  My wife has a hard time with shows portraying violence/abuse against children, but she can handle other “creepy” stuff.

 

Just finished season 2 of Black Summer on Netflix which was a decent watch.  Goes by quickly.  One of those “brain candy” shows that you can watch both seasons in 3-4 nights without staying up all night.

This is Miss Minutes on Loki...

 

I don't get it... is this why people are on tiktok and Instagram?

 

Why not just watch porn? It's just as easily accessible.

As a show that I don't think I've seen mentioned I started watching Watchmen on HBO Max a couple nights ago and got hooked. One piece of criteria I always use for judging shows is the Rotten Tomatoes Audience Reviews--significantly more important than the critics reviews... usually.

 

This show is an exception. I'm 3 episodes in to a 9 episode season of hour long episodes and I'll finish by early next week. The show is weird, but very engaging. I'd recommend it.

She's definitly a smoke show, but it holding herself in a super butt and chest out position.  Almost like she is ready to sit on the can for a dump.
