Tonight's movie was The Hate U Give (2018). This is a powerful movie about racial inequality. Amandla Stenberg is a star.
If you haven't seen this film, you must.
Hulu is where I stream most of my TV, so this news is good news for The Orville. I can't wait to watch the third season of this show, it's of the best sci-fi shows. The second season was so good.
I dig the new 2020 Chevy Corvette.
It's like an American Ferrari.
A good description of CW's Pandora. The list of shows in which I cannot make it through their pilot episodes is short. Pandora made it onto that list last night.
On The Last Ship, my favorite character is Tex because he's funny and down to earth. But, Wolfman is a total badass and fun to watch when he fights hand-to-hand.
I just tried to get through the premiere of CW's new show Pandora and couldn't finish it. It is a terrible mish mash of different better sci-fi franchises. It feels like the show creator was trying to mix Star Wars with Star Trek in order to create a Star Fleet Academy show. The stilted acting, generic sets and cringy dialogue doesn't help either.
"To me, it appears that the current Netflix strategy is akin to throwing spaghetti at the wall and seeing what sticks. Every now and then I come across Netflix original content that is very well done, but more often than not, the shows/movies they produce seem second rate."
Legion Season 2 Finale
I just finished the second season of Legion. It is still the most visually inventive and stunning show on TV, ever. This second season hasn't been as strong as the first season, it felt a little long for what actually happened in the season.
Turning Legion into the villain was expected as they had been hinting at it throughout the season.
The present and future of work in America. What happens when technology eliminates the entry level jobs?
