Love Island

I'm not a big reality TV person, but I saw the first few episodes of season 1 and quickly binged the first three seasons within a couple weeks. I'm hooked! I don't know what it is about this show, but it got it hooks in me for sure. It's a lot of fun!

The Making Of Disposable Arts

The production isn't great, but if this is a classic album for you, there is a lot in this doc that you will enjoy. There is some real fun insight into the making of some great songs. I immediately sought out and purchased the vinyl after watching. Took me right back to high school.

Love this list! Thanks for keeping it updated. I love hitting random on here and watching dumb holiday movies in December. Thanks again!

The Road

This is a good little Horror flick. There isn't anything too original, but it's executed well. It has a good tone, and even though the story is familiar, it brought me in and I genuinely wanted to know what happened next. All said, it was pretty easy to predict where things were going, nevertheless it was a fun watch.

The Prisoner

I understand why this would have been appealing at the time of release. It's a bizarre and imaginative world filled with mystery, but this was impenetrable for me. It was very creative and many of the shows unanswered questions showed promise, but I don't think it did a good job on paying off on any of them. It's possible that I'm completely dense and missed much of what the show was trying to say, but the bigger issue here is that the show never convinced me to care. It setup a very interesting premise, and then kind of slogged through 17 episodes. To me it felt like a precursor to a show like "Lost", but it just never sank it hooks into me the way that show did. I appreciate what it was trying to do, but it was a joyless watch.

The Dark Horse

I went into this thinking "not another chess movie", but it won me over completely. I'm a bit bias, because I love films about Maori culture, but even excluding that, this film shouldn't be written off as just another underdog chess movie. It was the backdrop to this story of family and community. I loved it! Cliff Curtis was great and it was a pleasure seeing James Rolleston all grown up from his role in Boy. I really liked this movie!

Maggie's Plan

I was really enjoying this movie, but that last scene was horrible! I was going to give this an 8, but the last 10 seconds of the movie dropped it a whole star for me.

Marshall

I've gotta watch more movies with Chadwick Boseman. This movie was very good, but it was really him that drew me in.

This movie is obviously terrible, but it is so enjoyable that I have to rate it high.

One of the best episodes. I laughed hysterically throughout! The jokes were relentless!

The commentary on the blu ray was very cool! Lots of interesting anecdotes.

Boy

I just caught this randomly on Amazon Prime. I'm familiar with Taika's recent work, but had missed this one. It's a gem!! I loved this movie. Funny, sweet and an all-around good time.

We Bought a Zoo

Schmaltzy, but good family fun.

Alien Empire

It's well made, but I've been spoiled by the gorgeous work that BBC Earth is doing now. It was a little hard to fully invest with the huge drop in video quality. That said, it still has some style and the information doesn't seem to be too dated. It's an interesting watch as a huge BBC Earth fan.

Six Feet Under: 5x12 Everyone's Waiting

I watched this series originally many years ago. I just finished rewatching the entire series with my fiancee and it was every bit as good the second time around. This episode is the best episode of television I have ever seen. I'm not usually compelled to cry during movies and TV shows, but this finale has gotten me twice. It's just so damn beautiful. I love the entirety of this show, but this finale solidifies Six Feet under as my favoritie show of all-time. Now I'm going to go listen to Sia - Breathe Me on repeat as I mourn Six Feet Under for a second time.

I, Daniel Blake

I really enjoyed this. I had minor gripes. The fade-to-black moments were very distracting. The ending as a whole, I didn't care for. I can put all that aside, because I really connected with the characters in this film. I felt their desperation and their compassion. Even the supporting characters were strong. There are a lot of good moments in this one. It's definitely worth a watch.

Side note: Hayley Squires, who plays Katie, totally reminds me of a British Mila Kunis. Couldn't shake that association throughout the whole film.

47 Meters Down

I thought this movie was really fun. I like shark movies, but they are all very similar. I thought this one differentiated itself enough from the pack to recommend this to anyone that's interested.

Tremors

I loved this movie as a kid! I just noticed now, that the monster on the poster art looks nothing like the monster in the movie. So weird that both this movie and poster art are ingrained in my memory, but I never noticed that difference. Just rewatched it after many years and it still a super fun monster movie.

Better Call Saul: 3x05 Chicanery

That episode was so tense! Masterfully done. I was more on the edge of my seat in that episode than any thriller I've seen lately. Probably the best episode of this show so far. Loved it!

When Mitch combed the bear is hardest I've laughed in this show so far. That one really got me.

I love this short. It feels like something that shouldn't even exist. Good nostalgia fun!

I wouldn't call it bad, but it's certainly not his best special.

The Missing Picture

I wanted to care about this movie. The story is obviously one that should be told, and it certainly felt deeply personal to the narrator. However, I could barely keep an eye open. It was very sleepy and felt very much like homework. I felt guilty being so bored by such a tragic series of events, but it is what it is. I definitely wouldn't mind learning more about this setting though.

The Adventures of Pluto Nash

Watched this along with the "How Did This Get Made?" podcast. What a confused movie. Who was this made for? It has the style and intrigue of a bland children's movie, but it has the raunch of an adult comedy. What a bizarre movie.

The Water Diviner

This was entertaining. It failed a bit for me in attempting to be a realistic portrayal of what went on in this time period, when the interactions between characters constantly felt like they were out of a Lifetime movie. That said, the story and pacing were good enough to keep me interested throughout. A decent watch if it's readily available. I wouldn't go out of my way for this one.

The Farm: Angola, USA

While the subject matter is interesting, the production value reminds me of something I would have watched in a middle school class. It's a little tough to get past. Especially with all the great quality documentaries we have these days.
