  2. That's good, then.
  3. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sure was a movie. Like, it wasn't bad but it was very very glaringly J.K. Rowling's First Movie Script in that there was tons of stuff that I'm sure if there were a book version I'd read beforehand I would have been like "oh, right, this is that" but instead I was left to try and figure it out on my own, and it... was rough. Only ended up liking one character all that much, and it wasn't the presumptive main character of the franchise so that's... not great. But the magical creatures were charming and I really like the way they made use of them in stuff like fight sequences. Also saw Loving, which was a lot better but a little too long. Extremely well-cast, though.
  4. Previously, on EWB's Favorite TV Show 2015: And we're back! Last year, Daredevil came out of nowhere to win the title in its very first year of eligibility, an unprecedented feat! Can it defend the crown with the power of like a million randomly-appearing ninja, or will another show, be they a former champ like Game of Thrones, some new hotness superhero show, or something else altogether pull off the win? Only your ballots can truly say! Let's get this show on the road. THE RULES: 1. You will be fielding a list of your top fifteen shows of the year. Voting, of course, goes like so; list the shows from 1 to 15, the show you listed at 1 gets fifteen points, the show you listed at 2 gets fourteen points, and so on. That being said, if you didn't watch fifteen TV shows (or fifteen TV shows you actually liked enough to vote for) feel free to just leave the rest of your ballot blank once you run out. That is totally valid! 2. This is a list for your favorite TV shows of 2016, and by that I mean that every show you vote for must have been airing new episodes in its country of origin. Like, I dunno, if Sherlock aired episodes in the UK last year and they aired on PBS this year that doesn't make it eligible now. Something like that. 3. Shows don't necessarily have to be scripted comedies or dramas. Both The Daily Show and Last Week Tonight made it in last year, for example. 4. But there is an exception; no wrestling. That stuff will all be in the wrestling awards, which is also a thing I'm running because fuck free time I guess? 5. And finally, you don't need to tell me you've edited your list up until I post saying that voting is closed, because that's when I'll start tallying everything. Then if you really, really want to make a change you should probably let me know, and I may or may not allow it. Now vote! Deadline will be sometime in the vicinity of two weeks from now, probably.
  5. Yeah, I've never seen Parker Posey in anything pre-Best in Show so I didn't recognize her at all, nor Jovovich until the credits started rolling.
  6. An article I read said that 30 Rock was included, so not entirely original content. Either way, I can't really make use of it if it's just for phones and tablets. Maybe someday if I get a phone with a bigger screen.
  7. You're definitely not alone. I'll rewatch it at some point and see how I feel, but as it stands I'd say Darjeeling Limited is far and away the black sheep of the Wes Anderson filmography.
  8. HERESY, I say as if I've ever seen it a second time after seeing it in theaters twelve years ago. I did, though, see Seu Jorge do all the Bowie covers he recorded for the movie last week and that's really all the enduring legacy I need. Watched Dazed and Confused (1993) last night. For the first half hour or so I was pretty much like "oh jeez is this all there is" but it grew on me significantly over the course of time. It has a lot of what I loved about Boyhood too, particularly the fact that Linklater is so good at depicting what's going on when nothing's going on. I loved a lot of the stuff where you got two different perspectives on the same thing from the older kids and the incoming freshmen ("ugh high school girls suck" vs. "ugh middle school girls suck, I can't wait until we're in high school" one scene later), and I enjoyed some of the use of repetition, like how every set of characters ends up at the drive-in burger place at some point because it's a small town, where else are you going to go? Also the only actor I knew was in this was McConaughey, so going "wait that's Adam Goldberg, right? It is? WAIT IS THAT BEN AFF -- IT IS" was great. I did learn that it's very easy for me to get Joey Lauren Adams and Julie Benz confused, though, so I was convinced that Julie Benz had somehow changed a lot in the three or four years between this and the Buffy pilot. Also gonna keep track of what I watched for each week now, just because:
  9. Searching for Sugar Man would have been my rec if I had remembered that it was meant to be docs post-2000. I got to see Rodriguez live last year (he was the opening act on Brian Wilson's tour, which I imagine was a real honor in and of itself) and it was super-fun, even if it was just him on acoustic guitar which strips out a lot of what I love about the production on his two albums. I'm not going to have a ton of time this week due to flying out to Chicago on Thursday but hopefully I'm going to find time for my coming-of-age movie pick, Dazed and Confused. I'm real excited to finally watch that one.
  10. Ugh, no, I'm good. It would take pretty everyone I trusted saying "no, it's great" to get me to go back.
  11. Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011) was a great movie to break in my new 60" TV with. It's about an 85-year-old sushi chef who runs one of the best sushi restaurants in the world, which happens to be in a subway station in Tokyo and only seats ten people, and it manages to cover a ton of things just by profiling him and the people in his general orbit (his two sons who are also sushi chefs, the people who serve as his apprentices, the dealers he buys fish/rice/etc. from). As someone who is terminally bad at committing to anything, it was really amazing just watching people who have gotten amazing at something through tireless hard work and repetition, and there's this constant drive for perfection displayed by almost everyone in the movie that's kind of inspiring. The craziest part is that I decided to check Wikipedia to see if he's finally retired yet and left the business to his older son. He hasn't. He's 91 now and he still runs his sushi restaurant. That's fucking insane.
  12. You'll have a good 2 - 2.5 weeks to edit those in, don't worry Right now Westworld and Search Party are the primary two shows I want to finish to get a fair feeling on if they're going to crack my list. I do have the last four episodes of Preacher on my DVR but I don't think it'd make anything other than my ten honorable mentions.
  13. Even watching some of season 1 for the first time earlier this year was really really weird-feeling, so I can't imagine what watching one of the KTMA ones is gonna be like once I get to it.
