Enjoyed both WandaVision S1 and Loki S1, I'd say Loki is my favourite so far of the MCU shows but I'm still behind, I have Hawkeye and Moon Knight next, also watched Shang Chi, Black Widow, Far From Home and No Way Home, I'd rate them No Way Home > Shang Chi > Far From Home > Black Widow but I found Shang Chi refreshing, not really in any rush to finish the rest yet though.

Stranger Things S4 was very good, I've mostly spoken about that already, also finished The Boys S3 which was an awesome season, a little weaker on the finale compared to the rest of the season but I still enjoyed it. Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy was amazing, I'm glad more people are being exposed to him, he was awesome in Supernatural too but it's more limited for his career.



Around the Network

Now 15 shows to catch up on and thinking about adding Upload, Evil, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, 1883 and Peacemaker, Lol.



I just watched Harold and Kumar: Escape From Guantanamo Bay for the first time in ages. The first 15-20 minutes are hilarious shit, especially the plane scene (I LOL'ed at "HE SAID HE GOT A BOMB!" ROFLMAO ), then after that, it fizzes out. It's a solid comedy with some funny moments, but nothing I'd want to go back and rewatch over again.

I also watched Everything Everywhere All At Once the other day, and it's a wonderfully-made film with plenty of heart and laughs. I highly suggest you check that out if you haven't already, it deserves all its accolades.

Nice can't remember much about that one.. that one where they go to Amsterdam? The first one is pretty funny as stoner comedies go, and the second was decent iirc xP Not really into them kinda movies anymore but some of the hilarious scenes are definitely lol worthy.

I tried getting into Everything Everywhere but couldn't get into it.. might have to try and give it another go.



Recently, watched Invincible and memes aside.. it brilliant stuff. Along the veins of The Boys. Brutal, yet captivating world of super 'heroes'. Also completed Season 3 of the Boys which was excellent. Not quite as good as last season but pretty great overall. Ending though was a little anticlimactic after a big build up.

Stranger Things S4. Ngl I didn't really rate the season, while there were some big reveals in there which was cool. There was A LOT of suspension of disbelief in this with many characters having more plot armor that you could shake a stick at (more-so than usual), some poor acting and rushed story feels a little underwhelming after some excellent seasons. A decent watch if a little underwhelming.

I've struggled to come up with anything interesting to say about some of the stuff I've watched lately. One of those was the new Thor movie but Pitch Meeting put it better than I could:

I didn't hate it, but there were a LOT of missed opportunities and odd tonal choices. The latter was a problem in Ragnarok as well but that was better executed over all.



Trying to watch the MCU films again. I’m just going to conclude they aren’t my thing. I haven’t found any particular film I’ve liked. They all seem a little samey to me as well. Although, I did enjoy a short I watched featuring a couple of bank robbers using an alien blaster. But that hardly counts.

I don’t dislike all super hero films. In fact, I quite enjoy Logan, the Deadpool films, the Blade films, Watchmen, some of the Batmans, X-Men: First Class, and the Amazon Prime series The Boys.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Blade Runner: Black Lotus: Lousy writing, decent action when it doesn't get carried away. The character models suck but the animation can be great when it wants to. Surprisingly decent soundtrack oddly reserved for the credits of each episode. The world of Blade Runner is still fun to explore.

Carnival Row: The lukewarm critical reception put this one in my backlog for a long time but it shouldn't have. I think they really underrated this one and I enjoyed it a lot. Excellent production values and world building, an engrossing and entertaining setting, and a surprisingly good performance out of Cara I didn't know she had in her. This show obviously isn't cheap to produce and I worry it's not getting the buzz to justify its expense, but I hope Season 2 releases soon and it gets the support it needs for a full, healthy series.



I watched the Resident Evil tv series on Netflix. It's as if the writers got as high as I was when watching the show... It was pretty entertaining, but I doubt it would be any good while sober.

The best show on tv atm is Alone, I love that survival show.



Watched Thor Love and Thunder and that was a mistake. Filler movie that tries to hard to be funny and goes nowhere, story wise. The only good thing in that movie was the villain Gor played by Christian Bale, who was absolutely brilliant. Chris Hemsworth was his usual self as Thor. Everyone/thing else kinda sucked. Avoid if you can.

Series wise finished watching The Terminal List after some glowing recommendations from my friends. And that was also a bit disappointing. The action scenes were great, the story was a daft as were the characters and plot.
