    Episode 3 Rewatch

    Upon my first rewatch of this episode I can say with absolute confidence that this is one of the greatest episodes in television history, or even film history. It’s just beautiful through and through, the story of how someone could find love and purpose in a world that seems hopeless. Bill and Frank are a direct representation of Joel and Ellie, and that’s why this episode is important, it gives even more meaning to the letter Bill…

    Really beautifully done, a departure from the game in terms of the fate of certain characters but I think it worked beautifully and it certainly packed a punch. God it’s so hard to wait a week between episodes, this show is so amazing.

    That final shot… so powerful.

    Ok so this is my review rating for “Grounded: Making The Last of Us” the actual documentary on the making of the first game, I’ve been, and will continue to use this documentary as my way of logging my thoughts on each episode of the series but for this particular diary log it will be my thoughts on the documentary itself. This genuinely flew by, I have so much respect for game development, from the animation artists, to the composer,…

    Brought me to tears. They’re 2/2 on tears being shed during each episode for me. This episode just did it, every emotional beat from the game hits just as hard here, if not more so. The subtlety to the music hits in all the spots it does in the game, the clicker encounter was adapted FLAWLESSLY, OH MY GOD. This show is perfect, it’s one of my favorite series ever already, it may be my favorite show ever, I’ve never been so immersed into a world like I have with this. It was just so satisfying.

    3rd Rewatch

    “I don’t understand Tenet, it’s too confusing” mfs when I hit them with the truth bomb that it makes perfect sense you just have to watch the movie and pay attention: 😫

    Tenets only flaw in my opinion is it’s sound mixing, don’t get me wrong the score is incredible but it overpowers the dialogue throughout the entire movie, almost requiring you to have subtitles or to turn the volume up to the max to hear what the characters are saying.

    ★★★

    Miles Teller and Chris Hemsworth were both great! I don’t know, it wasn’t bad but this would’ve benefited GREATLY from being condensed into maybe a 40-50 minute special of some kind, they kinda dragged it on for too long. It definitely felt like a feature length black mirror episode, just one of the average ones plot wise.

    Second viewing in the last week or so. Just the sounds of this movie put me in a comfortable mood.

    One of the best facts about The Burbs is that it was in production all through a massive writers strike, so the cast had to resort to improvisation on a lot of the days during the shoot, so a good amount of the iconic dialogue in the movie was come up with on the spot by the cast. It just…

    1st Rewatch

    While this reboot/prequel to John Carpenters original masterpiece doesn’t even come close to reaching the high bar set by its predecessor, this film does serve as a fantastic companion piece that does actually enhance my enjoyment for the original film. The clear complaint here is the over reliance on very poorly aged CGI as opposed to the original which was famous for its masterful work and usage of practical effects that still to this day, look more real…
