    I got Fallout:New Vegas on Epic Games free download a few months ago, and probably lasted about 15-20 minutes before I said fuck it. It was just not appealing. Maybe it was just too overwhelming for a newbie. Seemed like a lot of work to get going.

    I started the series last night hoping that might spark a renewed interest in the game. Just watched Ep 1 and it seemed ok, but not fantastic. I'll continue on and maybe it picks up, but so far I'm having trouble seeing why everyone raves about this game/tv series.

    I really liked season 1 and have been waiting for season 2 to finish before I start it.

    There's a lot of debate about whether streamers should be doing scheduled releases (Tokyo Vice and Shogun for example) versus entire releases (3 Body Problem). There are pros and cons to both, but I prefer entire releases and being able to binge rather than wait. I basically waited 7 years before I started Game of Thrones so I could binge that whole series in a few weeks.
    I don't mind a hybrid style. Release a few episodes each week. So the entire 'series' is out within a few weeks. Gives a bit of time to chat about the show with friends as opposed to everyone being on different watch schedules. But also not so long that it's months to conclude a series and lose interest.

    I watched Borat's American Lockdown and it's pretty close to stupid. It gets a bit cringe while he keeps trying to set up the two Right Wing guys he's staying with like as if they were the degenerate Frat Boys from the original movie. But they're not. They're extremely patient and nice to Borat and quite open-minded about nearly everything but he keeps trying to show something that isn't there. Which is dumb.
    It looks like a failed project that they just went ahead with anyway knowing that it didn't work.
    Maybe the whole thing was fake, too. But I doubt it, because it predominantly failed to show the "Hard Right" as very nasty. It was weird.

    first half is excellent, second half is kinda meh. Then I watched a 4 hour breakdown on youtube on the three books and it's obvious that no way a show can follow up to the second and third book. The physics and the concept is completely out of this world.
    I think we watched the same video. Haha.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Yeah I'd agree that the first half was really good; last two episodes were blah. Still can't wait to see how season 2 will happen.

    Side note: some crazy shit happened with the producer of the show https://www.cnn.com/2024/04/03/china...hnk/index.html

    ---

    Started Tokyo Vice last night. Also really good and I wouldn't have known if it weren't for this thread. After this, I'll start Shogun.

    For the Fallout series, do I need to have played the video game to enjoy the show? I have not played the game.

    I watched Expendables 4 last night. Gotta say, as someone who loves bad action movies, this was exceptionally bad (not in a good, campy way). Everything about it was just God awful. Action pieces were boring. Sets/actor shots were clearly green screen. Overall effects are lacking. The only thing good thing about it is that it's only 1:40. Every other movie on my list was 2-plus hours long and I wasn't in the mood for that.

    Dune 2 was good. Not great.

    They probably found it hard to edit... And it shows. The script was dry. The acting was decent but not noteworthy. It had significant pacing issues.

    By my count is DVs sixth best movie: Arrival, Sicario, blade runner, Dune1 and prisoners were all better (and in that order).
    Finally watched Dune 2. Didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. Agree it's choppy, but didn't feel like it dragged. Overall pretty solid movie.

    Ok, it got better. That was actually really good.

    I just watched it last night and really enjoyed it. It's odd that the entire book/movie is about prophecy, they almost completely lay out the prophecy in front of you, and you're still pretty into the whole movie.

    I don't know if it's a theatre problem or that's how the movie was mixed, but the volume at the theatre felt incredibly loud. Almost to the point of hurting.

    Saw civil war last night. What a dud of a movie. Easily top 5 worst movies I've ever seen.

    Can sum it up as a chick flick. A girl who loves to take photos that gets wrapped up with 5 minutes of action at the end of the movie.

    I'll be a bit more thoughtful on my movie choices next time i decide to see something in the theater.

    I swear theaters are terrible at this. I had this issue with dune 1, to the point that I brought my loop earplugs to dune 2, but took them out partway into the movie and didn't find it uncomfortable. Theatres are shitty at providing a consistent experience.
