Having a star trek discovery rewatch before tacking on the new season. TV so boring these days excited for nightly baseball.

Just started watching Peaky Blinders. The pilot is one of the best series openers I've ever seen. Outstanding cinematography - this is shot like an expensive movie.

The Gucci movie directed by Ridley Scott featuring Adam Driver and Lady Gaga has some potential

Hadn’t heard of it. I’ll give it a look. I guess this upcoming season is the last.

Peaky Blinders stays good. 5 seasons in and they keep finding new angles.

I could have done without the constant Marlon Brando impression by Adrien Brody in whatever-season-that-was but otherwise, yap.

I have a long-time tradition of watching all the movies with Oscar nominations in the Best film/directing/acting categories.

While it has turned up many pleasant surprises for me over the decades, it has also stuck me with some movies I don't want to see at all. I watch movies I fully expect to dislike - maybe because of the reviews, or maybe they have Anne Hathaway. Whatever. But I do it anyway. I watch all the movies. It's an automatic thing.

But that ends this year. There is a girl from the Borat sequel nominated for Best Supporting - and I am just not going to watch that.

The Father is another one of these major bummer movies. It's good - it's well done - it's a take on a real-life situation that so many deal with (aging, dementia etc.) The performances are good and even a bit mind-blowing in spots. I can't stop thinking about the one Anthony Hopkins scene near the end.

But it's a bummer. It's just a bummer. You don't really learn anything. It's just a portrayal of a major bummer situation that there is no solution to.

So that's out there if you want that.

I don't know what to think about Hillbilly Elegy. It's got the Oscar nom - Glenn Close again. I'll watch it.

RT critics rating is 26% but the audience rating is 84%

Directed by Ron Howard. That's not a bad name but I dunno. I think I believe the critics more than the audience on this one - but I'll watch it.

Its a CBC (low budget) production, made in Toronto with local (no name) actors. I enjoy Kim's Convenience as a time killer.
Schitts Creek, not so much.

I'd a thought Mr. Kim was somekind of Star.
when I 1st realized it was supposed to be in Toronto, I kinda started paying attention to perceived differerences in culture /world view.
:thinking: I think your multiculturalism works better than ours for one. Also your cities are depressing ghetto shit holes, just like here, but they don't seem to depress you as much.
