Re: What are you watching right now?

Clint Eastwood/Sergio Leone - A Fistfull of Dollars. Worth it just for the opening credits, and then there's more.

Re: What are you watching right now?

Horst Schimanski was never my favorite German TV detective (too reckless, a disregard for law and order, and kinda copying typical American TV cops of that time), but this one (stream/download) from 1981 managed to captivate me - for historical reasons I guess, and for its sound track by Marius Müller-Westernhagen - again, not my favorite musician by a long stretch but very unique to his home and era.

This was a time when dilapidated but huge factories/mines were still spewing thick fumes, and people were living in equally dilapidated towns right next to them. Just flick through the film to get some visual impressions.
Additionally, it reflects an era I still experienced as a child - with full size cigarette ads of  brands now gone and yellow, coin operated phone boxes instead of smartphones.

Imagine a cross between a particularly dystopian Black Mirror episode (or Iain M. Banks' concept of digital afterlife), Idiocracy, and The Truman Show... four episodes in, good fun!

Re: What are you watching right now?

Parker Posey. Trying to analyze why she's so attractive, she's a brunette Megan Kelly, or vice versa. Both very attractive...

Ok, I should have let the Megan Kelly video play one more second, because she looks completely psychotic in that scrot. Don't fool yourself for a minute, though, Parker Posey is equally psychotic.

This joke is styled after Norm McDonald.

Re: What are you watching right now?

OK, not quite fair. Parker Posey has a Hepburn quality while Kelly is closer to Glenn Close (that's a female actress). But really, does anyone still consider Katherine Hepburn sexy? John Wayne, maybe? Cog, probably. Spencer Tracy of course.

Everyone but Cog IRL is currently dead. Cog, you can make it! Get to da' choppa!

I think I went one movie reference too far there. Buy me a 6000 SUX. I like it!  I'll buy that for a dollar! I guess we're gonna be friends after all... Richard. (See, it's funny because Clarence Bodicker had called him Dick up to this point in the film. Yes, Red from That 70s Show. In retrospect it's disappointing that he doesn't call anyone 'dumbass' in the film.)

Re: What are you watching right now?

Marilu Henner from Taxi (70's US TV comedy show) talking about getting cast on the show. Fascinating, not only if you love the show, but also because she has a rare disorder where she can recall everything in her life from childhood to the present, down to the year, the date, what day of the week it was (it was a Friday), even what time of day it occurred. And if you fact check it, her facts are accurate, even if the specifics of her memory of the event may not be, as it's still her recall of her reaction to the event. But... the time, date, place, people present, the general facts of any situation from any day in her life... all dead on every time.

Re: What are you watching right now?

If I ask what Hitchcock's best movies are, you'd say his '60s films. Psycho and The Birds, North By Northwest, maybe Rear Window.

His best was in 1946. Notorious, with Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4gEpBOj0dg

Second best was Spellbound, 1945, with Gregory Peck and Bergman.

MTV's Liquid Television and Aeon Flux. Late '80s, I think, maybe early '90s.

Re: What are you watching right now?

I've been watching westerns for 40 years or more. There are a lot of good ones.

My favorite is 'A Fistful Of Dollars'

Second is 'Rio Bravo'

Third is 'Tombstone'

Fourth is 'My Name Is Nobody'

Fifth, 'Escape From New York'. Face it, it's a western.

Fine, not a western. Unforgiven or Rooster Cogburn or the original True Grit. Or High Noon.

Re: What are you watching right now?

+1 for Rio Bravo.  Have you seen El dorado,? it’s kind of a parallel.

With Robert Mitchum and a young James Caan? My testicles grew more hair just typing that.

^Ditto, and the answer is no. So far. I hope it's Shaka (Zulu) dressed as Hitler kung-fu fighting Joseph Goebbels, or I will be disappointed.

Just curious, am I the only one not interested in The Mandalorian because I have no interest in Baby Yoda? I haven't watched a single episode yet.

I haven’t either, but not because of characters. I just consider it unethical to give Disney any money.

Re: What are you watching right now?

A fair point. They certainly screwed up the movies. And then there's all the other stuff.

The latest Star Wars issue is Disney won't pay royalties to Alan Dean Foster.

https://sir.wdwnt.com/wdwnt.com/2020/11 … 649001.jpg

Pay up, Empirial scum! Wait, it's Imperial?! But it's the freaking Empire!! Why are we using English in space?!!!????

-edit- Apparently Epcot is really Mos Eisley. Hey, they built a brand new ride near there with the whole thing in a massive scale. Well, where did they get the blueprints? It's not a hidden conspiracy, they paid Lucas 4 billion to help cover it up. Hive, scum, villainry, the works.

Yep.

My poison for the past weeks was Californication, but with a decent plot, story & characters:
Bosch
I have been reading some of the books earlier, equally good entertainment, but the book series follows a different, much longer timeline (starting in the mid-nineties).
In the TV series, everything is squeezed into real time afaics (2014 - 2019) which gives the impression that the show is commenting on current events, which seems a little unfortunate at times - the main character has very high morals and ethics and is also very loyal to his police force in a sort of old school way, which could be misconstrued.
