    The second opening of The Adventures of Tintin has three bloody perfect match cuts.

    I liked Tanya Roberts in A View To A Kill. Her and Moore had good chemistry together.

    Also Grace Jones rules.

    Doctor Who time:

    Rose is overrated, the 13th Doctor rocks, Martha is one of the best modern companions and I don't get the hate for Adric whatsoever. Matt Smith gets way too much love, also.

    It’s weird how that happens when ~40 years go by.

    This is the opposite of an unpopular opinion.
    Just because...
    Mickey One (Arthur Penn, 1965) cold
    Wild Things (John McNaughton, 1998) warm
    La Pyramide humaine (Jean Rouch, 1961) cold

    The last book I read was...
    Suttree by Cormac McCarthy

    Sophie Turner is the best thing about the new young X-Men.

    I haven't seen the new season of GoT, but I read spoilers because I don't gaf, but I feel like adverse reactions to whats happening is weird like people haven't been paying attention.

    What, you thought this was going to end well? Theres NO good ending that will satisfy crowds. You've built a story on so many story lines as to create audience factions...mathematically you've divided the audience and a complete ending would be a one-in-a-million writing miracle that I just don't see coming from someone who started this mess.

    Bolding and amplifying the keyword, because the main thing is that the show's execution when actually watched is so shoddy and illogical in "how" that the "what" feels unearned, thus plot points that make sense in broad story strokes come off nonsensical visually. I see so many similar takes to this and it's kind of a bad-faith assumption when so many equally (if not more) horrific, non-audience-conforming incidents have happened in the show in the past seasons without this much pushback. Lame execution is lame.

    Totally fair. Not judging the execution. Just the plot...turns.

    Yeah, I buy the turn just barely because it makes for a compelling story/endgame and the directing and acting are so good, but the writing of the situations surrounding that turn is laughable.

    Yeah, for the most part, it's not the "what" happens that's alienating watchers - it's the "how". The internal logic of the show used to be awesome and now it's totally broken.

    I really like the entire young cast. Alexandra Shipp is great as Storm, too. It's a bummer that the whole bunch will get rebooted by Disney down the road-I highly doubt they keep this cast.

    The version of Paul McCartney's Junk that appears in the Beatles' Anthology 3 is much better than the one that ultimately makes it to his debut album McCartney even if they're not that different from each other. The lower-key singing and barebones production give the song a rawness and melancholy that cannot be matched by the later version.

    For comparison:

    Lost Edition:

    All of the seasons are great or near great.
    Jack is the best character
    I like the entire main cast. Yes, even Shannon and Boone.
    Kate is underrated
    Locke is overrated
    Desmond rules but I am glad he was limited on the show.
    Sawyer had the best arc.
    The show answered all major questions. And later on wonderfully trolled the whinners.

    Hmm, tv might be fun.

    -Dexter: Season One is a perfect arc, and the high water mark for the entire show.
    -I would say Rescue Me was the best show. It closes where it opens, every ep can make you cry laughter and cry from the deepest feels of sadness and/or horror. It may not hold up post #metoo but I haven't watched it in a while.
    -I still haven't seen the last two seasons of the Sopranos. No reason, just haven't got to it.
    -Dragonball Z's dvd set's "marathon mode" was the best feature for tv home video that never caught on. Shame. It cut all intros, outros, credits...anything extra. Episode would end and next title card began.

    I love Dexter S2. I have not finished the last half season of The Sopranos yet. And that DBZ marathon mode thing sounds cool, although I like watching the credits.

    Most of the time its not bothersome, but in anime its half the show. Those episodes are literally cut in half when you remove the superfluous stuff.

    Ooh I got another one: The season finale of Dexter was perfect. No cheap deaths, left our anti-hero in shambles he probably deserved, he finally felt an emotion, bleak bleak shit that just about all parties earned.
