    Somehow I limped through the end of the crown. Show should have stopped once Claire Foy era was done.

    last season got a lot better once Diana was killed off, but that’s not saying much. Just awful.

    Was fun to see the ginger whinge portrayed to be as awful and perulant as he seems to be in life

    Trevor Noah's latest special on Netflix imho gets off to a slow first several minutes, but then once he hits his stride it's incredible and his Top 5 Things White People Love bit ranks up there for me.

    But I will give it a chance.
    Yeah, I'm going to give it a shot.

    It was a bit uneven, but there were parts (most of them McConaughey, though a few with Harrelson and Monaghan) that were outstanding, IMO. I hate the resolution between the two main characters because that tension and disjointedness was why I liked it so much. There are characters that are compelling because they don't like each other, but typically it's very simple -- this was richer because they also did not understand each other. That's why the ending was a betrayal of what made it unique, and smelled like a director's or actor's dumbing down of the writer's vision to keep the derps happy.

    I just saw that S4 has Foster, so I may user her to wash the Roberts out of my eyes after Leave the World Behind.


    For a brief moment I was confusing Jodie Foster with Francis McDormand. And that gave me even more hope S4 would be good. Francis McDormand as a cop in a cold weather location. Worked REALLY well before. But then I realized it wasn't. But Foster is fantastic as well. And I got to (want to?) believe that the showrunners have heard the criticisms of S2 and S3 and will produce something much better.

    S1 is very good, although I thought the ending was kinda cheap, and the epilogue was full on insultingly stupid.

    I've been warned off the rest as crap.

    The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar (Netflix), which could be also be called The Wonderful 40-minutes of Anyone Watching This Film. It was adapted by a short-story by Roald Dahl.

    A short-film somewhat presented in the form of a play with Ben Kingsley, Ralph Fiennes and Benedict Cumberbatch. As I was watching I had the sense the creators were heavily influence by Wes Anderson, only to find out after he was a writer and co-producer. And one particular scene felt like it was an homage to Monty Python.

    I enjoyed the speedy cadence of the dialogue, the quick changing sets and costumes, as well as the deadpan delivery of the characters.

    It is supposed to be the first of a four-part series all of which were adaptations of Dahl. I really enjoyed this and if you're even remotely a fan of Wes Anderson would highly recommend.

    I know the character Reacher is supposed to be super imposing, etc. I was more referring to the fact the actor in the TV series is very robotic like and I have no idea if that's intentional or if he's a terrible actor. I never watched the Cruise movie and have no desire to.
