    HBO Max Westworld Season 4

    I guess it's ironic fitting her last name is Joy. 😂😉

    HBO Max Westworld Season 4

    She directed the drones to make her stronger. When Host William later stabs her the knife doesn't penetrate. Not sure if the frame was a season 1 callback or just one to help her be more impervious. Didn't remember Ogg was in Season 1, but was the woman he was with also an original Westworld host?

    HBO Max Westworld Season 4

    I would rank them the same.

    HBO Max Westworld Season 4

    Who else was wondering/hoping that somehow the Westworld universe merged with the Walking Dead one with that mustached dude making a cameo? 😂

    HBO Max Westworld Season 4

    The way I interpreted the scene where Hale was stomping on the red 3D projection of the city and how it sync'ed with the disturbances in Christina's reality, is that the 3D projection was more than just a fancy map as it had been presented for most of the show, but the "digital analog" (or...

    ShawScope Volume Two coming this Christmas Timeframe from Arrow

    I guess I'm not sure how that jibes with Arrow's description that Volume 2 "...draws together many of the best films from the final years of the Shaw Brothers studio..." If there are 2 more volumes, what would be in them if the studio was folding? Since there are no shortage of films, I'm...

    ShawScope Volume Two coming this Christmas Timeframe from Arrow

    Still working my way through the first volume, but glad to hear there's a second on the way. It occurred to me too late to get Volume 1 as part of the B&N Arrow sale, but I'll be looking to do so with this second volume, and other Arrow releases as lately they've been putting out titles that are...

    HBO Max Westworld Season 4

    So yeah, a few of you were on the right track regarding the nature of Christina. But exactly how that works is the mystery right now.

    Prey (2022)

    Watched it tonight and wanted to watch it in Comanche, but I couldn't get the subtitles working for some reason. I see Midthunder's resemblance to Aubrey Plaza, but I've no complaints there because I'm a fan of both. And haven't you heard? Edgar Wright thinks Plaza is the next Lara Croft. 😉...

    R.I.P. Anne Heche. See Post#6

    I would recommend Walking and Talking, a 1996 indie film she did before she got into some more high profile studio films. Arguably her most high profile role was in Six Days and Seven Nights because her co-star in the romantic comedy was Harrison Ford. EDIT: One movie I forgot she was in I Know...

    R.I.P. Anne Heche. See Post#6

    The first film I remember seeing her in was Walking and Talking, co-starring with Catherine Keener. And that role basically sold me on her as an actress. I realize she had a troubled life and was often tabloid fodder, but somehow she always seemed to rise above it, which made her sort of an...

    The "Guilty Pleasures" Movie Confession Thread

    I also finally watched Clue after hearing so many people saying they love that movie. I'm pretty sure they watched it when they were in that magical 8-12 years old period, because it did very little for me (other than the obvious with Yvette, the maid). So I wouldn't be surprised if Clue were...

    The "Guilty Pleasures" Movie Confession Thread

    In light of recent news, a definite guilty pleasure for me is Six Days and Seven Nights with Anne Heche and Harrison Ford.

    Your current GAS list?

    Also, calling back to the possibility of the R7 as a second, telephoto-priority body, I'm more on the fence now that some reviews have come out. The main issue is the control dial on the R7, which is a fair bit different than what's on the R6, as well as its on/off dial being that if you push...

    Your current GAS list?

    A bit belated in reading your post, Scott, but I did something similar last winter with the annual Canon Store sale and got the RF 24-240 f/4-6.3. The main reason being I was anticipating traveling internationally again this summer (which we did), and in our previous trips I opted to not bring...

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard Season Two

    Yes, it seems like Lore got his traits from the worst parts of the Soong Dynasty.

    The Gray Man (2022)

    This was my real motivation for watching The Gray Man, so I could watch the Honest Trailer.

    The Gray Man (2022)

    I walked into this movie pretty cold, so it turned out to be more than I expected, in a good way. Some of the action teetered on outlandish, but didn't go so over the top as to enter into the Red or John Wick territories (at least for me). I didn't know who the director(s) were, so I was...

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard Season Two

    Did the fact that Picard now has a synth body ever get mentioned or acknowledged in the second season?

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard Season Two

    The whole notion of "fan service" has been an interesting one to observe in this age of reboots, reunions, and homages. There seems to be quite a spectrum now of how this manifests, from the acceptable to the not, with the acceptability factor sometimes being highly subjective. In my mind, the...

    The Mac Mini is just pining for the fjords, it's not dead yet!

    Well, the Intel i5 Mini just seems to be asking to be replaced with an M-chip model on their store page. Or there would be an obvious hole in the price/product line if it stops at a $900 M1 Mini, and then the next option in the same form factor is a $2000 Studio. Whether that intermediate option...

    The Mac Mini is just pining for the fjords, it's not dead yet!

    I'm fine with 2023. My current Mini would be 5 years old by then.

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard Season Two

    I may have missed this in my international flight delirium, but what exactly did they say Soji was doing? I know the actor appears as Kore in later episodes... The part that bothered me about them going back in time was the kind of heavy handed social commentary. I know Trek hasn't always been...

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard Season Two

    I finished the first season and enjoyed it (favorite episode was probably where he reunites with Riker and Troi - it hit so many right notes without feeling like pandering). Not without some criticisms in other places (like Jurati gets absolved rather quickly), but I can see how after the first...

    Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022)

    That's a little surprising since one of the bigger publicity stories surrounding the film was his return to acting after those childhood projects from 30 almost 40 years ago. I guess you and I aren't getting the same kinds of news feeds. 😅

    Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022)

    Here's something several years old directed by the Daniels. The thread I followed was because I recognized the woman who played the queen in the musical (Sunita Mani) as one of the supporting cast from Netflix's Glow. And in her bio it referred to her previous work with the Daniels for this...

    Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022)

    Rented this and thought it was fine, and my response may be the inevitable backlash to all the buzz and hype. I did feel it was a bit long, as I couldn't finish it in one sitting. Ultimately, I wanted to like it more than I did, and I'm doubtful I will add the film to collection (which surprises...

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard Season Two

    Yeah, I skimmed through some of the latter comments here. By the 5th episode I could feel it becoming a bit ... "familiar" I guess you could say. And I wasn't too sure whether I wanted more than to know the basic plot points. I have heard good things about season 1 though.

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard Season Two

    Just wanted to pop in here with an anecdote. I was just on an international flight that had five episodes of Picard, so I watched them all. But didn't realize until I started looking up background info just now that I was watching Season 2. Never watched Season 1 but only knew superficially that...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -Out of Sight -- in 4k UHD

    I've always been fascinated that so many film editors have been women. My understanding is back in the studio era the job was seen as (or simply was) kind of clerical in nature, but I would like to read or watch something a bit more exploratory about the history and development of the role. I...
