    I'm right there with you, Episode III is the only one I remember really well and it was always my favourite of the three! It's so good! For our rewatch we've done I and II so far; going to watch III on Wednesday. Honestly I and II were way better than I was expecting. Like they had some really terrible elements (Jar Jar... was way worse than I remembered but I can see him being fun for kids watching, at least... but wow, he was annoying), and the dialogue was bad (so I really don't fault the actors much), but they had a lot of redeeming moments too and a lot of excitement. I thought little Ani did a great job and it's sad to see so many people hard on him. I still love the podracing scene as much as I did when I was a kid (and I may or may not have popped out my N64 to play podracer afterwards ). And the music for both is top notch.

    I'm on episode 5 of season 1 now, so I guess I'll be at season 2 pretty soon. Oooh favourite character, who to choose. Sunny is definitely my favourite, but I like Tilda too. I do know I love to hate Quinn though. I haven't seen too much of Waldo yet but the little I've seen he seems cool! I think I've heard of The Host. I'm noting down the other ones you mentioned too.

    I'm one year into my thesis, with three years to go. Heh I'm expected to work on it over the summer, so I do go to school on weekdays for a few hours, but outside of that I'm likely to be found on my computer playing video games . I did take a couple weeks of break after finals.

    I've been thinking of doing a Star Wars marathon with my brother. Starting with the prequels . I haven't really seen them since I was a kid and didn't see how terrible they were, so I'm kind of excited to see them .

    Yeah Sunny is great. He's so conflicted but has a heart of gold. He doesn't talk much but they've done a great job of showing and not telling what his personality is. I haven't seen too many Asian movies, do you have any to recommend?

    I see! It's nice to be unstructured and have the whole summer free ahead of you. Yeah I don't really have plans either, just working on my thesis on my own time. I feel like the Captain Underpants movie is like 10 years too late.

    May the Fourth be with you!

    Haha yeah, Robert Carlyle is great in it, and it's clear he has a lot of fun with the role. Just started watching Into the Badlands by the way. It's exactly like you said . And the martial arts is SWEET. It's a pretty fun show so far.

    Yeah I know what you mean. I mainly use it for TV show post-episode discussions, lots of fun theories to read. I tend to do a lot of lurking

    Thanks!! Best of luck with the last bit of school and finals!!! Any plans for the summer other than the A7X concert? Nice . Hopefully you'll get a good movie audience this time around. I forgot the new Alien movie was coming so soon. It Comes At Night looks pretty good too, going to try and see that. Not sure if I'm going to see Captain Underpants... it's probably going to be terrible but I loved that series as a kid

    Good point . Speaking of Netflix now I've been distracted by watching Once Upon a Time. It's pretty fun and ever since I was little I've loved stories that had unique spins on fairy tales. Although it can be extremely cheesy at times.

    Yeah it's great and the operatic music really makes it. Definitely try it out if you have a chance.

    Yeah that's... not that Pennywise I think of from the book! I see what you're saying

    That makes sense, the non-Muse discussion here can be pretty lacking or short-lived. I can appreciate that. Reddit took a while to get used to for that reason, but I like how there's always discussion about pretty much everything you can think of; although I'm much more of a lurker than a poster . Yeah 6 years!!! Crazy!

    I'm all done finals now . Just waiting on marks now and I'm not concerned about them, which is a good feeling. How's school going for you?

    I haven't given Jessica Jones a try yet so maybe I'll give it a shot. Haven't seen Luke Cage yet either.

    I thought the Japanese live action films were alright, definitely better than average for an anime-to-live-action movie, though that's not saying much and it could have been way better. Ryuk looked really fake. Yeah I hope it's a mix too! the whole anime is super dramatic. I love the sparkles that fly off the chip. Just watched the trailer for the FMA movie. I can't tell too much from the trailer but I agree, it doesn't... look that great...

    Yeah it's pretty good so far, but at the rate I'm getting through it's going to take a looong time. I haven't actually seen the miniseries just a few clips online of some of the more well-known scenes. I'm guessing you have?

    That's totally fair. I haven't really posted or browsed much in a while. I spend a lot more time on reddit. (also, wow, we've been talking for over 6 years now)

    I hope you're having a good Easter weekend and you're able to enjoy some delicious food!

    Those are all good points. I can certainly see why they wanted to do it in a montage because I can't think of where they could have fit in the time to go more in depth. I think it's more just personally I was really interested to see more of how they decoded it and was let down by the quick summary of the actual decoding.


    Yeah I think I'll be skipping over Iron Fist. I haven't actually enjoyed a lot of the Marvel shows . Apparently Daredevil is supposed to be really good but I couldn't get into it.

    Yeah I'm sure we have (sorry ), I know we talked about the movie way back near it got announced but I didn't remember your answer. I know it's contraversial but I'm not really bothered by the "whitewashing" here because Deathnote is a story that's not intrinsically Japanese; it can be adapted anywhere and still have all the same themes and story that makes it Deathnote. They were very clear this is an adaptation and have based it in Seattle, and have changed the names of the characters, so it's not like they're basing it in Japan and still making obviously Japanese characters non-Asian. Yeah I'm definitely looking forward to being able to watch it at home, there've been some annoying moviegoers at my last few outings . Dafoe was SO perfectly cast. Based on the trailers I still can't tell how they're going to present him though, like in all CGI or some mix. Not sure if you're aware of the chip-eating scene but it definitely has to be in the movie...



    Definitely, ignoring the last bit of the trailer, IT looks great. I'm about a 1/4 way through the book myself. In the middle of finals right now though so not likely going to finish it soon.

    No worries!

    Yeah it's season 4 right now. Season 3 was alright - it was an interesting concept but it got a bit tiring. That sounds like an amazing description . I just looked it up and it looks just like you described.

    Don't remember if you ever watched Deathnote but a teaser trailer for the movie came out and I'm really excited about it! I know a lot of people are disappointed by it but I'm optimistic. Otherwise I hope it's really really bad, like Avatar levels of bad. No in between

    It wasn't so much plotholes as just personal nitpicks and things I wish had been changed:


    - I wish we saw more of the physicist's contributions. He didn't really do anything on-screen. I know they mentioned some things he did but I would have loved to see some actual physics being problem-solved
    - They skipped over how they decoded the language in detail, instead covering it in a quick montage with voiceover, so the way they figured it all out didn't really feel convincing, instead very arbitrary. Somehow they were completely fluent within a few months... considering even some old Earth languages were never able to be decoded without the Rosetta Stone it was hard to believe
    - I'm not sure what the rogue military people were thinking when the decided to blow up the ship (and how they got their hands on the explosives so easily in the first place). I know they watched that conservative guy going on about blowing the ship up on the internet but I found it hard to believe some military people - who are clearly trusted enough to even be around this thing in the first place - would decided to try blowing up a ship they already saw defied gravity and was way ahead of current technology
    - Very little political involvement; I would have imagined more orders would have been coming from the White House rather than all decisions seeming to be made by the lone military post at the ship


    I also wanted to see Manchester by the Sea and never ended up going. You're lucky to have seen it live ! I wasn't watching the Oscars this year so I found out way later. I'll check that out! Speaking of Netflix shows, I finished Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency a little while ago. It's pretty fun and quirky. Also caught up with The 100. Season 2 was the best so far but season 4 is looking pretty good too. Oh and I started watching Riverdale. And... I'm really enjoying it

    Nice!!! Have fun!

    But I couldn't wait! I needed to know!

    I thought it was a good movie but not great. It had a cool twist that really makes you think but it was a bit on the boring side, and there were a lot of things that still don't make sense to me. Still want to see Lego Batman! I've been slowly going through some of the Oscars movies with my family and we last saw Moonlight. That was really good. I can see how some people would see it as really slow or boring, and it was a slow-paced movie but at the same time it felt like everything deserved to be there.

    Yes! Flashpoint was great! I saw it 1 or 2 years ago. It had an amazing voice cast too. I think it's cool how DC used the comic version to explain the revamp/relaunch of all the superhero titles for DC with New 52. Another good DC animated movie is Batman: Under the Red Hood. Although I'm a bit biased since Jensen Ackles is one of the voices

    I'm definitely seeing the sequel! Going to try and make sure I see it while it's still in theatres too! Looking back on the movie it's all the more impressive they actually made an action flick feel fresh and original. It's pretty rare with action movies especially and I'm sure they carried on the same kind of feel in to the second. I'm really looking forward to seeing Chapter 2

    Actually saw Arrival tonight (pretty good) and before the trailers they had a mini interview with Keanu Reeves about the movie which makes me even more excited to see it!

    I must confess, I already looked up whether the dog survives or not in the second one. I couldn't help myself . Very happy with the result.


    That's pretty great! I find it hard to name since at first Litten is a cute cat and by the last evolution it's a beast! So Brock Lesnar is pretty good for the end game

    Don't sweat it, I didn't either. Only reason I knew is that I wondered if the same character was in the comics and if it was as obvious in the comics as in the show, so I looked it up! Really the only DC series I'm somewhat familiar with outside of shows and movies would be Batman. For The Flash I've really only read Flashpoint and seen him as an occasional side character, and everything else I know is from the show and what friends tell me.
