I’ll have to check that out, Tb. I finished altered carbon. I really enjoyed the last 3 eps. It’s still flawed and messy, but it was fun - like an early 90’s sexy b-thriller with the glossy look of a big budget sci-fi flick.

Yeah, i think the cast did a really good job too especially in the last few eps

 

The asian chick turned out to be an awesome villain. I always see that actress in so many different shows/movies, but this was definitely her breakout role. I hope they find a way to bring her back in the next season.

I finished Babylon Berlin. Wow, that show was extremely impressive. It was  a really interesting look at Germany pre-ww2 but what consistently impressed me the most were the production values. The sets are grander and more authentic than most other productions i've seen that take place during this time period. The closest comparisons off the top of my head are The Knick and Peaky Blinders but BB blows them both out of the water.

Every episode is better than the last 

What is it.  I couldn't stomach black mirror for an entire episode, if that's an honest indication of my white euro peepoo Netflix show tolerance.  Honestly if I'm not learning jappo, I don't care.  And 95% of the Japanese content on Netflix is trash and kiddy anime too that I never bother with.

It's not really like Bladerunner.  The cyberpunk theme and imagery hits close to it, but it's actually closer to other cyberpunk works like Neuromancer.     

 

People just make the Bladerunner comparison because they don't know any better.

So I saw black panther. 

 

First off, I don’t usually care for marvel movies. So, I was relieved that the film met the “realistic” hype.  Best movie ever? no  Best superhero movie? No. But did I like it? Absolutely! I’ll get right to the point: it’s a by-the-books superhero flick, but with a bit more depth and social relevance. It’s, visually, stunning - despite a few cartoony effects. But the percussion-driven film score is what really immersed me. All the players nailed their roles, as well. 

 

My score - B
