    Barbie (2023)

    I admit my initial reaction was pretty bad, but then I remembered my reaction to hearing they were making a Lego Movie was the same. That turned out to be a very good movie in my opinion.

    Netflix Netflix Series - Stranger Things 4

    I have watched through episode 3. I am sort of still on the fence about this season. I know it is early, but half of each episode so far has felt more like a Teen Drama on the CW network. Complete with way over the top bullies that are just not realistic. I have hopes that it seems now (at the...

    Peacemaker (HBO MAX 2022)

    Enjoying it so far. I am a little surprised that DC is OK with someone sort of making fun of their IP. I get the feeling only Gunn would be given this much leeway. But I am glad they are allowing this. It is definitely something different than the normal superhero stuff we have been bombarded...

    Ghosts (US) (2021) - Season 1

    I do hope they get more into why the ghost are still trapped. What the unfinished business was that is keeping them there. I would have thought that Pete would have been "sucked off" after his story about his ex and seeing his grandchild. What is keeping him here now? I think it would be cool...

    Ghosts (US) (2021) - Season 1

    The more I get through the BBC version, the more I am sure that the main reason I like the US version better is the husband character. Michael, in the BBC version, is just a horrible, selfish person some times and a complete moron most of the time. I can't sympathize with him at all. In the...

    Ghosts (US) (2021) - Season 1

    I agree that British comedy in general is good. I also agree it is different than American comedy. That doesn't necessarily make one better than the other. I think everyone agrees that canned laughter is a bad thing and I have noticed that it is slowly going away, at least on the sitcoms I...

    Ghosts (US) (2021) - Season 1

    I just watched the first 4 episodes of the British version on HBO Max. I have to disagree with Peter. I think the new American version is better. It might just be whichever one you see first sets up your expectations. I am finding the British one just too British if that makes sense. I usually...

    Ghosts (US) (2021) - Season 1

    I am really liking it. I went in with zero expectations and was wondering how it would work. I don't know the overall plan, but I hope we get to see the main ghosts eventually get "sucked off" as they call it. I really like that they are expanding her seeing ghosts to everywhere she goes. This...

    What We Do in the Shadows (FX)

    I just finished watching the latest episode and I have a question. I thought that the Vampires in this world can't eat or drink human food. How did Lazlo get drunk? Did I miss something? Do they just drink the blood of a dunk person?

    'The Jinx - The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst' on HBO

    Wow, I was expecting another OJ Simpson repeat. I personally think he is guilty of all three murders. I recently watched the Jinx and found him to be a complete sociopath. Anyone who admits to cutting up a body and dumping in a bay is capable of anything. His brother is lucky to be alive as well.

    What We Do in the Shadows (FX)

    I have finally caught up to the new episodes. I had seen the movie a long time ago, but had not watched the series. It has been a blast. I hope that by binging all the episodes over a couple of days, I have not somehow ruined anything. I plan on keeping up weekly now. With all that said... I...

    The Horror Movie Appreciation Thread

    There are a few Horror movies that have left a weird feeling in me after viewing (and still to this day). I wouldn't describe it as scared or fearful, but more like a creepy feeling that I still sort of get for some reason, even now, that I can't really explain. The first is Alien. I have...

    Appreciation for "Truman Show"

    Sorry to necro-bump this thread but I finally got around to watching this again. I am sure I have seen it a long time ago, but I could not remember a thing about it. It is a really good movie, but I find myself angry for some reason. I think that it might be that it was purely fiction at the...

    Odd display problem on HTF/Community page

    Another piece of info. I switched over to Chrome, and when I first visited the HTF, the forums did show up. But as soon as I logged in, they disappeared and it looked like it does in Edge.

    Odd display problem on HTF/Community page

    For the record, I am having the exact same problem. I am using Win10 and Edge Browser. Win10 Pro Version: 10.0.19041 Build 19041 Edge Version: Version 84.0.522.44 (Official build) (64-bit)

    The Last of Us, Part II (Naughty Dog - PS4)

    Yea I get the Violence begets violence message. It is just that the initial violence was not Joel or Ellie's fault. I see a difference between killing in self defense (or killing to protect a loved one) and pre-meditated torture and killing. ND seems like they are trying to say both types of...

    The Last of Us, Part II (Naughty Dog - PS4)

    Nope, Trying to justify Abby's actions shows the developer just doesn't get it. For ND to try and force the "violence is a bad cycle" narrative is just so hypocritical. They make their living pushing violence (which is fine in a video game setting). It feels strange for them to suddenly try...

    Star Trek Voyager - A Thread for Fans

    Darn it Adam, Your posts are going to make me re-watch this series again. :) I liked this series a lot (except the way it ended) so I guess it is not that bad of an idea. It is a lot of episodes. A lot of commitment. But anyway, thanks for your mini-reviews. They have been really interesting.

    Doctor Who

    There was a couple of major reveals in Fugitive Of The Judoon. It will be interesting to see peoples reactions.

    Doctor Who

    Is anyone else having a hard time understanding what the Doctor is saying sometimes? With the thick accent and fast speaking, I am having a real tough time understanding her when she is franticly speaking. I have lived in England before, so I thought I was used to the accents but her Yorkshire...

    The outer worlds!

    I don't think that Outer Worlds has any tie to the Fallout series. It is it's own thing. For the Fallout series, I started with Fallout 4 because I was late to the game. I was not into RPG type games. But after I got Fallout 4, I ended up getting Fallout: New Vegas and Skyrim and like both of...

    Doctor Who

    Yea, I thought she did a decent job of playing the Doctor. I just thought the stories were either too political, just bad, or not memorable. In fact I am having a hard time remembering much of them. All I have is just the memory (feeling) of being lectured to but I can't really remember the...

    The Expanse Season 4

    I came across an interesting video on YouTube that goes into detail about the Expanse being dropped by SciFi and being picked up by Amazon. It is very much a YouTube video with the over the top "click like and subscribe" vibe but I did find it interesting.

    The Current War (2019)

    I need to know if they show a scene that depicts the danger of current by killing an elephant? (spoilerize if necessary) I am interested in seeing this but I can't if they show this.

    Citizen Kane of Action movies?

    ".....should be able to acknowledge a consensus opinion that runs counter to their own opinion." I am sure the person who pointed out the naked emperor (emperor's new cloths tale) felt like I do about this film. LOL I fully understand that the "popular opinion" is against me, but that does not...

    Citizen Kane of Action movies?

    This topic confuses me. I personally hate, hate, HATE Citizen Kane. I feel it is so overrated and is just a horrible, self indulgent movie. Does this mean I am supposed to list horrible action movies? So I guess my "Citizen Kane of action movies" would be the 80's Flash Gordan. But with that...

    Legion - FX Network/Marvel

    OK, that does sound bad. And as I suspected, it did ring a bell in my head and shock a few cobwebs loose. Thanks

    Legion - FX Network/Marvel

    I am looking forward to the new season. I hope my DVR remembered to record it last night. I know I am old..... But can someone give a quick summary as to what David did to be labeled a rapist? I admit I do not remember much about how season 2 ended. Is the "rape" explained in last nights...

    Archer: 1999 (Season 10)

    I didn't really see any Space: 1999 references (although it has been a long time since I watched that) but there are definitely references to a lot of Space/Sci-Fi shows. I expect we will get a lot more. And the Geisha/Courtesan Ray character really felt like a Firefly reference...

    Archer: 1999 (Season 10)

    The new season of Archer (season 10) started a few days ago. I am glad I still had my timer set otherwise I would have completely missed it. This time around they are in space. It is always fun to see what characters are what in these new seasons. I have already seen references to Alien...
