Finished watching the second season of Westworld last night- not sure if I liked it or not. It was very disconnected, apparently on purpose, and left the door open to all kinds of possibilities. That is fine as long as they go somewhere in season 3.

I liked season 1 a lot, not so much season 2 though it is always great to see Anthony Hopkins in almost anything.

Currently looking for something else worthwhile to watch. Lately, some Limey shows have been really good IMo, such as The end of the XXXing World, Killing Eve and a few others. Black Mirror is also good though all over the place as it is a true anthology series. Kinda' waiting for True Detective and Fargo....

Besides all that, YOU seemed to be sitting awfully close to Guy Young an awful lot of the time when we were in TN but hey, I do not judge.....  :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:



jealous? you could have hung outside with us, don't forget Larry Buck was right in there with us also... Los Tres Amigo's...

I could have/should have, come in to listen to the cat joke, but had to enjoy the outdoor atmosphere, where I could smoke cigs, and cuss... :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

all is good, glad we both have a great sense of humor...  some folks never understand, or get it.. :thumbs: :hail: :finger_fing11:


Besides, as of last Monday, I do not need to read to your kids anymore, got a Granddaughter of my own! Penelope Elizabeth,

congrats, welcome to the Grampa Zone...!!!
seems like just yeasterday my grandson was born... now he wants my motorcycles, and my guns... ( a-la the terminatah)
he's grown like a weed.... and he's cool as can be... his dad is a knob, but then he isn't my kid... :deadhorse: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Hey, anyone not moved by some parts of life ain't worth the breath they draw..... IMO, of course.

And I did hang out with you  a bit in TN, although the temp. got to me something awful. I actually had to head up to my room and hide behind the A/C to recover. Sorry, I am a northern boy and cannot adapt to the south in anything but winter. I could make sweating an Olympic event......

No need to clean up anything about that photo: I hope to be holding Penelope soon enough and frankly, I do not care where my thumbs end up. Looking forward to holding her, changing her and giving her a bath. She is still in the hospital, born a bit premature but not too far (34 weeks, maybe 35) so long term prognosis is excellent. My D-I-L has already been released, Penelope goes into an open crib tomorrow and with a little luck, comes home on Thurs. So everything is great. In fact, I am casually scouting around for another C-14 to make the trip down to VA and visit the little angle as often as possible. Of course I can make the ride in a cage but hey, why do that when I can <possibly> ride on two wheels?

On the plus side, I truly love my D-I-L and I do not say that lightly; she has been with my son for almost 10 years and has more than earned all my respect and love, which is not something I give away easily. In fact, she is number three out of <everyone>: my mother, my wife and now she so it is kind of a special bond.

Apparently I am in charge of teaching Penelope how to ride (motorcycles and if needed, horses) and shoot, which I am frankly very happy and proud to do.

Anyway, she is still in the hospital and so I have not 'met' her yet although my wife is there and stealing touches and the occasional holding- all strictly off- limits in the neo- natal unit. But if my wrist will cooperate, I will see her soon enough and maybe post a photo or two as  a proud Grandpa.

We finished all three 'seasons' of Black Mirror. That's some damn good writing! Dark but very well done.    :thumbs:

Wow- I just finished watching all 4 "seasons" (I use that term faintly) over the last week.  A few episodes were "meh" but most of the others were really great!  Highly recommend.

Watched: A Quiet Place and Bird Box.

Bird Box was first and I really enjoyed that movie. Edge of your seat suspense. Thumbs up.

A Quiet Place was terrible! SEVERAL plot hole large enough to drive a silent tractor through. So many holes that I couldn't get around them. The first of which, where did the electricity come from? Maybe those new fangled silent generators? Thumbs down, WAY down.


Anyone like A Quiet Place?

IMDB rated Quiet Place 7.6 and Bird Box 6.7. I gotta wonder if those folks watched the same movies that I did?  :o

Hmmmm...now I gotta watch it again...'cause I enjoyed it...or thought I did...I'll give only the excuse that I was away from home and a little desperate for entertainment at the time, and that may have skewed my enjoyment meter. Now back in my salad days, before they started drug testing my urine at work, I would partake of stuff that made mac n cheese taste like gourmet food and old Danny Kaye movies seem like Oscar winning stuff...but no, that sensory enhancement drug wasn't in effect this time...just desperation. I'll watch it again here at home and maybe get a more accurate meter reading. Then I'll watch the bird box thing and report back.

Yep, a true anthology series such as The Twilight Zone where no episode has any connection whatsoever to any other episode. So one can be lousy, one silly and one excellent, all in a row.

I found Black Mirror about the same way, with a sprinkling of excellent episodes, some lame but most OK or better. I will absolutely catch the next season (as you loosely call them and I agree).

quiet place got ditched within the first 20 minutes of watching... enhhhhhh


bird box, was somewhat enthrawling, and I enjoyed it for content... pretty scarey actually/\
when I was in my teens, i was doing a solo canoe trip ( mom and dad freaked out, and put out an APB because of it), it was a 4 day trip, consisting of just short of 50 miles, on the Grand River in Ohio... I had done many6 of the sections local to me, to Lake Erie, countless times, and had camped, fished, hunted along the corridor for 30+ miles inland;
I was camping on the second day/evening of my trip... and while grabbing up fire wood, ran a branch... a really pokey one.. into my eye..
I freaked out, and as I did have a "simple med" kit. and fresh water, I rinsed my eye, gooobered NeoSporin into it (nthat was tought to ddo.. just saying) and applied a gauze pad, and duct tape.. to continue on... again, mom and dad, were not a "bail out option" because if I did that... well, I would be haunted with the repetitious "I told you so"... "don't poke your eye out" schpeel.

It all ended well, I got scolded for what I took on, and it was all dropped...
But I will say, navigating a river, alone, with no person around within many miles at times.... being HALF blind, was a wake-up call

I actually did a "re-doo" a few years later at a church camp, where we taped our eye's shut with gauze and tape, for 48 hours, and entrusted those around us to "assist" us..

OMG

all I can say, is loosing sight, is very scarey.

cool movie tho.

Well, I myself am not under any threat of having to take a urine test, so...    8)  (even that didn't improve this movie for me)

That said, even being 'under the influence' I still couldn't get into A Quiet Place. I have an entire list of plot holes in that movie. I had a discussion with my oldest son, who liked that movie, and that's where my list came from.

Here's one for your consideration. Supposedly humans have been living with these creatures for over a year right? They know that these creatures have super sensitive hearing and are attracted by sound right? Could they not set a trap, involving some sort of sound source, a pit, and a bunch of gasoline/explosives?

I could go on and on. How about, where did the rows and rows of corn come from? Those fields didn't get planted by hand...

For a more complete list of the gaping plot holes that you may have missed.

Jim Halpert should have stuck with acting...



What's really amazing about A Quite Place is that it won The American Film Institute's move of the year award! WTF?  :o

Struggle: The Life and Lost Art of Szukalski

I admit even tho I have heard the name, I never researched or looked at his work...
So I have been looking closer...
totally amazing... some of the most powerful art I have ever seen.. the sculptures are simply astounding, even tho many were destroyed in Poland when it was Bombed...

Game of Thrones, season 8.

We watched the last ep last night. What a disappointment!!!   :o

The writers could have done so much with the last season and didn't.

It seems that after loosely following the book for so long once they had to write a good ending on their own that they weren't up to the task. Pity.

Agree completely! It's like they got tired and just ended it as quickly as they could.

Absolutely typical of random length, episodic TV. They do not know how long the show is going to last so they cannot predict when it will end and therefore have a reasonable plot outline. And when the series does end, they have to quickly try to tie- up loose ends and that is usually impossible: remember how Lost ended in some kind of 'afterlife'?

That was the thing that allowed Breaking Bad to be so good- Vince Gilligan had a plan and a story arc all picked out before even starting. He actually stated his goal was to start off with 'Mr. Chips' and end up with 'Scarface', and he proceeded to write exactly that. He choose when and how to end the series rather than just making some unknown number of seasons and then slamming the door on the entire story.
