That seems like one of those movies that just doesn't seem to appear on television or movie channels ever.

HBO Max rules.

gently caress yeah. Years ago youtube or some site had the intro but in Russian and its one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Just some dude violently screaming in Russian for the translation but it's like 10x more intense. Haven't been able to find it in years.

some lady walked into my showing of Killer Joe and vomited so hard over the first three rows that it sounded like ripping canvas.

It PERFECTLY meshed with the movie and only added to it.

I was totally fine with Mad Men's "The Crash" episode, but i wasnt really down with Bert Cooper's "last dance". He was a Randian Weeabo, kinda okay rarely, him dying was vaguely sad but he wasnt as core as like, Roger. I could see Roger dying and then Don imagining some bizarre dance scene.

Almost done marathoning this before it leaves Netflix in 8 days.

Bert Cooper finding out about Dons dark secret and absolutely not giving a poo poo about it is one of the show's strongest moments and arguably the show's whole thematic point.

I mean, yeah. That's what the show is saying. But in reality what Don did could land him in a massive amount of trouble if it were taken to law enforcement and the military.

Here's a little walkthrough for you guys.

HBO Max has Titanic. Regular HBO does not.

I watch things on my Vizio D-39f-F0 which is a smart TV with apps and built in Chromecast. It's a two year old TV, top of the line.

I subscribe to HBO through Hulu. Searching for Titanic through Hulu on my TV shows no results, because you can't watch or search through HBO Max content on Hulu, only regular HBO.

To watch Titanic on the TV I need to:
1. Download the HBO Max app on my phone
2. Create an HBO Max account
3. Enter my Hulu login info into the app to prove I'm paying for HBO
4. Cast HBO Max from the app on my phone to my TV

Non HBO Max content, "normal" HBO, shows up in searches on Hulu and can be watched on the Hulu app on my TV without any casting nonsense.

Don't worry, in a few months they'll launch HBO Max Go Plus which will combine some of the features from all of them to make things easier.

In previous years I would assume the director's next movie would be something somewhat higher budget that will probably hold together better, but it's 2020 so he's gonna get a big tentpole franchise movie because midbudget films are dead.

They're CG in the wide shots and puppets(models, whatever) up close and looked pretty alright to me. Didn't stand out like the CG in Mortal Kombat or anything.

Scrolling through the list on HBO Max and there's a lot of unexpected stuff on here. Just gonna list a few as I cruise through here...

American Animals - Real life story about the planning and execution of an art heist from a University library in 2003. It cuts back and forth between actors playing the people involved and interviews with the actual people.

Man Bites Dog - (fictional) Documentary film about a film crew following around a killer in Belgium.

Speed Racer - The Wachowskis deliver pure glorious audio/visual delight. The villains are sneering, the sense of speed is incredible, the movie is a joy. Watch it loud on the biggest screen you have.

Blood Simple - Early Coen Brothers movie. It's excellent.

There's a lot of good stuff on here. Hoping the content stays good and it's not a deal with a bunch of good stuff that disappears in a couple of months.

edit: Holy poo poo man, Critters 1 and 2 and Gremlins 1 and 2 are on here. Hell yes. I haven't seen past the first two Critters but both are silly and entertaining and I recommend them.

edit edit: Hausu is on here. What?! What???! Ok I'll stop.

Can confirm re Speed Racer. Rewatched it not too long ago and had a blast. I forgot how intense the visuals were.

I dunno, i tried to revisit that movie after thinking it was genius at 17 and it just struck me as edgy, hosed up (but in that specific way meant to cater to white men that most of such media is "hosed up") stupid, and pretentious but...hey, I've also changed.

Finished Mad Men and I liked the final episode, though I felt like the Stan and Peggy thing was some rushed punctuation. I never really thought they'd end up together. Obviously real relationships happen like that, but it just feels like they got paired off.

With stuff like Man Bites Dog, Gaspar Noe, a lot of Takashi Miike, etc, ive realized that what i thought was "transgressive" and "artistic" and "profound" as a teen is mostly just...violence against women (it's so consistent as to be undeniable) and grotesque edgy bullshit. None of it pushes any *real* boundaries, or posits anything actually actually dangerous or really thought-provoking or profound.

Revisiting Man Bites Dog, it just feels like some...student film. I guess it kind of is? The entire premise is childish and its execution is full of the hallmarks of white male "transgressiveness" which is really mostly just constantly punching down (violence against women/being racist)
As much any of these types of films make "statements" about "society", or the grotesque content they're displaying, it's completely lost in how much they *clearly* revel in depicting it. It's honestly bad for you.

So I'm dumb, it's just a two part miniseries. I thought it was scary as hell, maybe a good way to prime an innocent mind for Midsommar.

Unrelated, the two part X-Files arc made up by "Christmas Carol" and "Emily" has to be the most schizophrenic pair of episodes in the series, the first one has a mysterious waking nightmare vibe and is 99.9% Scully, which was great, then Mulder comes in for the second part and it's just aliens, again

The Plot Against America is pretty good but it definitely has the lamest intro song of all "prestige tv"

IMO the intro credit sequences of The Plot Against America and The Deuce seem kinda cheap and dated (like late '90s/early '00s tv ), conflicting with the quality of the rest of the production. Not asking for True Detective level stuff, but shows have upped their game since The Wire. It's like they were made in iMovie.
