Season 4 of "The Expanse" just dropped on Amazon. Great series. I've also read all 8 or 9 of the books in the series.

Catching up with "American Horror Story" again, on season 7 now, have 8 and 9 to follow. Speaking of which, Twisty The Clown is a lot scarier than Pennywise. Chances of running into a true demonic otherworldly clown are nil, chances of running into a psychotic clown like Twisty, not so remote.

I saw the first two seasons of The Expanse on Netflix, but now I’m stuck. Frustrating.

I refuse to subscribe to Amazon.

I've started The Expanse S4. I'd really liked the first 3 seasons and was haunted by the music. I've just seen the first S4 episode and I wonder if they're not pushing too far too much and how it will live as the action seems to be now mostly "on location". I think we have had enough of Scifi-which-turn-out-to-be-westerns shows. 

As for AHS, i gave up in the middle of S3 (the witch school). I find it ridiculous, cheap, too much of camera tricks to force a wannabe visual signature, and the anthology excuse to have the same cast again and again in different ridiculous disguises dont work for me. I also can't stand Sarah Paulson and her exaggerated acting. It's sad because i really like the posters i find promising… When you think its the Nip/Tuck team behind those show… Sad.

I've read all The Expanse books, all eight in the main series (waiting on 9) and a couple of the side books that are stories related to the main characters. The short one on Amos is interesting, he had a hard upbringing. Two things...

As they move out into the Ring expanse, things do change a lot, the focus of CIbola Burn was always the planet and what it was doing, and the book was more detailed.

Secondly, there are a couple of plot lines that take their own books and are woven intertwined in all the alter books relating to both defecting Martian navy types along with a ruthless OPA terrorist attack.p

The story line in season 4 is, by book reading, a bit rushed in order to get multiple plots rolling, and they've taken some artistic license to compress it. However, I think they did very well given the time constraints of one season, what, ten episodes? But having read the book helps understand what's going on. They captured the main things on the planet though, but of course the book was much more detailed about the alien artifacts and the company vs squatting belters issue.

I liked AHS season 7 at the beginning more than at the end, it kind of got over the top and annoying. I've generally enjoyed the other seasons but agree about the actor. WIl see how season 8 goes.

The Greatest Showman

I've liked it. It made me thinks a lot to Baz Lurhman's Moulin Rouge.

You should watch the "This is me" rehearsal video on youtube, very powerful!

Yes, Moulin Rouge is something that I want to re-watch someday.

There is more than 2 hours of bonus material on the bluray disc, that we still want to watch...I guess that will be there too.

If it is, watch carefully the background, you may spot Leogoneswild rising on its chair to do a very chilling countersing !

The down side of it is that after experiencing the energy of that workshop, the movies version felt flat, but without hurting the whole movie quality!

Last night I serendipitously stumbled onto two movies I hadn't seen in forever, "Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes" and "Return Of The Killer Tomatoes," the latter of which starred a very young George Clooney. I'd forgotten what camp masterpieces these were, completely tongue in cheek and funny as can be.

I bought the Criterion Collection special edition Blu-Ray of "Videodrome," one of my favorite movies, directed by David Cronenberg. It was the first David Cronenberg movie I ever saw, and I've been a fan of his work ever since.

It is one strange film. Surreal, disturbing, philosophical, and subversive. The making of shorts are amazing as well, they had to create a lot of different techniques never done before in order to accomplish the effects seen in the film.

Not a film for everyone perhaps, but an amazing film nonetheless. The video transfer is also outstanding, as you'd expect from the Criterion Collection.

Norwegian detective series 'Wisting' currently showing in the U.K. on BBC4 with sub-titles (although there is a lot of English spoken in the early programmes). Apparently based on two novels. Quite interesting, although a bit formulaic with a main story interlaced with some personal mini stories.

Lately I’ve been enjoying the old late 50s early 60s TV series “Naked City,” a crime drama set in NYC. It’s the show that always ends with the line “There are 8 million stories in the naked city, this has been one of them.” Actually a very good show and quite a time capsule too.

Watching it too. I love those northern ambiances, Fortitude was so great, in a different style, Lillyhammer, while I'll never get through Trapped.

I just watched an amazing documentary on Amazon Video, "The Legend Of Pancho Barnes And The Happy Bottom Riding Company." The Riding Company was the name of the bar at Edwards Air Force Base in California where all the test pilots hung out, including Chuck Yeager. The owner, Pancho Barnes, was apparently a true larger than life character. She was a pilot herself, took the women's speed record from Amelia Earhart (who she considered a bimbo), unionized the stunt pilots in Hollywood, just an amazing woman. A fascinating documentary.

Watched The Platform on Netflix last night and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Set in a dystopian future prison, the inmates live on many levels where those on the lower levels only get to eat what those on the higher levels don’t or can’t consume themselves.

The timing of the release of this film is astonishing, certainly given the situation in the UK (but probably elsewhere too) at the moment where, in response to the Virus, people are basically buying much more than they need and seem not to care whether that that means others have to go without.

It’s an excellent social commentary.
