I really don't know how to rate this special. It truly is unlike anything I have ever seen before. It doesn't come off as a gimmick, or like Netflix is cashing in on Norm's niche brand. Every moment is raw, unfiltered, and bare. At times we see the acknowledgement of mortality behind those sparking Paul Newmanesque blue eyes of his. The shiftiness in his quick glances, the otherworldly timing, and that uncanny ability to take you on a journey through…
To say Louis C.K. is a problematic figure is an understatement. We don't have to delve into all the history there, but we know it as the audience going into anything he creates. Personally, the man is a deeply flawed genius. Horace and Pete is one of the best mini-series of the last ten years. The writing, acting, and direction is a zenith television.

Brad Pitt has really found his comfort zone these last few years. He's consistently delivering quality work and we're damn lucky to bear witness to it. As for the film....it's really fun. Plays like a Guy Ritchie flick in moments. All the performances, (and various cameos), are a good time too. Feels like one of those films that I will forget about within a short amount of time. Regardless, it's one damn fun ride. I can think of much worse ways to spend two hours.
Did we all watch the same movie? Best Predator film ever? No, I think people need to relax with all that jazz. Is it because, "The Predator" was so bad that this one is getting held up in higher regard? Did I think this was well-made? Oh, hell yes. It's beautifully shot. Honestly, there's a few moments in this film that are damn iconic when looking at the entire series. I'd also love to see the Predator in different time…
