That's funny as gently caress coming from HBO as they slowly swirl down the toilet.

I donít really see what is supposed to make HBO stand out anymore, yeah they have a few good shows every year, but so does Netflix and amazon and Hulu. I donít think the quality of content really exceeds any of the other services at this point, unless you count prestige stuff everyone has already watched. And the amount of content they offer is dwarfed by every other service. Yet they remain the most expensive one.

If nothing else HBO needs more competitive pricing but I guess they canít undercut a cable sub with their streaming.

Netflix still makes a profit from their DVD service.

Their streaming service sometimes takes years to get movies once they're released on DVD, if they actually get it on their streaming service at all. Their DVD service gets them almost immediately. I still have a subscription to their DVD service because of this.

I'm honestly a little surprised that people still sub to their DVD service but I guess different people have different priorities. If I want to watch something really specific, which pans out to being once a month tops. In that case I'm happy to just pay $1-5 to rent it off amazon and I can watch it right away.

maybe I've just become accustomed to watching whatever is immediately available to me though. There's just too much poo poo to watch now. Something has to really pique my interest for me to go and seek it out on my own, which still happens, but not to the extent it used to. At any given time there's like 50 things I want to watch, half of them are included in some subscription I have, and I have time to watch 5 of them.

Assuming the accusations in Finding Neverland are true (I'm not gonna assume they are or aren't true though) , the parents in this might give the ones in Abducted in Plain Sight a run for their money.

Apparently it was a really easy to be a child molestor in the 80's. That's my takeaway from all this.

My issue is less that I don't believe them and more related to my general discomfort with the era of trial by public opinion we live in right now.

I'm honestly inclined to think everything in the doc is true. I don't see what either of them have to gain from it, and there is some really damning stuff in there. At the same time he was exonerated in court and he's dead and there is no real 100% way to know the truth.

I guess my opinion on MJ is totally unchanged from what it was before watching Leaving Neverland. He was a really weird guy with mental health problems, who had some pretty unnatural relationships with kids, and was most likely a child molestor, but no one will ever know for sure.

Now that I'm finishing up part 2, I have to admit it's pretty hard to give MJ the benefit of the doubt in any way, shape or form. I feel like I want to keep a neutral stance considering a lot of factors, but deep down it's hard to believe any of this poo poo isn't true.

Part of that is that so much of it is like, objectively true. He definitely traveled with preteen male "companions" in exactly the way one would travel with a lover. He definitely slept in the same bed with them. Etc. It just seems so unlikely that nothing inappropriate was going down.

True, but I think the question is really more about what his actions, motivations, and mental state were. There's no doubt that he had incredibly weird, suspect relationships with young boys and that has been out in the open for years. The things described in Leaving Neverland aren't really surprising in the least. I think it's good to go in with a neutral mindset because he was exonerated in court and other people have stated that their experiences weren't the same and the guy is dead.

In the end it's extremely damning though. I can't really come up with a single good reason to believe all of it isn't completely true.

Also loving Christ, Wade's mom is such an epically terrible human being.

I thought triple frontier was solid. It definitely walks a line between condemning the characters actions and them being ďbadassĒ

It went in a general direction I wasnít really expecting. Iíd imagine anyone who likes action movies will enjoy it.

Triple Frontier was pretty good. I liked that movie didn't spend too long pretending that they were the good guys just because they were robbing a drug lord, I love a good heist movie with a bunch of scumbags. It didn't blow my mind, but I still really enjoyed it, which seems to be where a lot of the Netflix films fall.

Yeah. Totally agreed.

Whatís going on with the animation in the Witness episode of love death and robots? Is it just live actors that they stylized in post production?

Some of the shorts go into serious uncanny valley territory but I legit thought that one was real actors. Probably harder to spot because itís so stylized instead of going for photo realism like some of the others.

I liked Love Death and Robots a lot more than I was expecting to. Really I didn't think any of them were terrible. None of them really blew me away either but I thought the whole ordeal was a lot of fun to watch. Witness stuck with me the most just because the animation was so cool and it was so loving dirty.

Some of the photo realistic ones were weird. Like, why is this even animated? Just looks a like a regular movie except everyone has hosed up faces. It's crazy though it was actually loving with my brain how real some of them looked.

One thing I do want to say about love death and robots is that the title is terrible and I think i would have watched it sooner if it had a better name. Imo they should have just licensed the Heavy Metal name which would have been way cooler.
