    I actually quite liked Velvet Buzzsaw. I've seen some people say they thought it was boring. I totally disagree.

    I gave it a few minutes last night.  Interesting concept, good cast (Malkovich!).  But I found it so-so.  Gonna give it another ten and either go with it or shut 'er down.

    23, I'm digging on Russian Doll - two episodes in.  I've always had a thing for Natasha Lyonne and she's fucking awesome in this role.

    I tried watching the Ted Bundy Tapes last night. I think I'd rather go back and watch the Super Bowl again.

    I tried watching the Ted Bundy Tapes last night. I think I'd rather go back and watch the Super Bowl again.
    It gets more interesting once the guy interviewing him tricked him into talking in the third person by asking him "You're familiar with the cases, what do you think the killer was thinking?" From that point on, Bundy basically describes his crimes and his crazy rationales. Interesting...but no required viewing by any means.

    It definitely takes while to get going. You might need more than another 10 minutes, lol. I think it grows into a nice, mellow horror movie, lol. I will say that it's not one of those movies that everyone is going to like. (Yes, Malkovich is the best!)

    I agree. Mads Mikkelsen's acting is fascinating. No matter how his character looks like, you still have to love him.

    Friends From College (Netflix original series)

    For me, this show is HILARIOUS!! Love it. Looks like the first season got critically panned, and the second got better reviews. I thought the first season was funny and the poor critiques are a real mystery to me, but yes, the second season is definitely better. I just pray they keep going with this series!

    Watched both seasons this past week.  2nd season was definitely better.  I wish they would do more than 8 episodes per season but I'm guessing the short seasons is how they got such a great cast.  Felix is my favorite...he realized how awful most of these people are!

    It just might not be up your alley, but I still think you gave up too early.

    Semi-related to Netflix: I have now watched both Fyre docs. The Hulu one I found much better from a strictly critical standpoint. I think the Netflix one was well-made with more internal footage (due to Jerry Media) and getting interviews with those directly involved. It seems like the general critique of the Hulu on is that they paid that fuckface $250k. I would push back and say they treated him like someone, yes, that they paid but had to answer their questions which certainly were direct and made him uncomfortable. 

    The Hulu doc went into more detail about how Magnises was an absolute joke, and how they just come out and say that these dudes were dipshits looking for a frat after they left college. Seemed to be more legit reporters involved with the Hulu one as well.

    Both have their strong points for sure.  I do like that the Hulu doc dove more into Billy's history of douchebaggery.  It was funny how he had no answers to some of the questions.

    Right, and the same argument against the Hulu doc for paying that shitbox can be the same argument made for the Netflix doc, which was co-produced by Jerry Media. Everyone wants a platform to say how it was wasn't their fault and get that message out. I just think there was room for more independence in the Hulu doc to make fun of everyone involved compared to the Netflix one, which also did a good job of that. And that's really what I'm here for - to bathe in all of these people's tears.

    Both docs had their flaws.  The fact that Jerry Media was one of the producers of the Netflix doc is pretty crazy.  But I do agree that the Hulu doc was better.  Oh man that Magnises stuff was hilarious.

    I watched the Netflix one first and I think that's the way to go. You're right that the Hulu one was better. But I liked the Netflix one fine and then the Hulu one did a good job of filling in some blanks. I also liked McFarland as a bit of a mystery in the Netflix one and then he's revealed more in the Hulu one.

    my wife started watching this. So I joined her. Maybe she was just tired, but after about the 4th time the sequence started over she threw her arms up, said she couldn't take it, and went to bed. (neither of us had any idea what it was about going in, so the time loop thing was unknown to us). I think I'm going to keep watching it though. Only problem is, every time I see Natasha Lyonne in something, the phrase "rule of 3" keeps repeating in my head. LOL

    Started watching Watership Down last night.  I'm only one episode in (it's 4 50-min episodes) but it's really well done so far. Loved the animated movie when I was a kid.

    Just getting into this Russian Doll show - two or three episodes in, forget now - and not sure whether this is suppose to be a comedy or what. The dying part makes it interesting and it seems it's suppose to be lost somewhere between serious issues and comedy - the writing's halfway decent. I just hope it finds its way because the comedy part isn't that great.
