What Movies or TV shows are you watching (2020)

Recommended Posts

This walks a fine line between too much American cheese and a good laugh, and overall wins on the laughs.

Watched Parasite last night, ok story, could happen in the first half,

the second half just got way out of control.

Sure watch it, it did win the Academy Award for best picture,

but I sure can't understand why.

 

Recently , The Highwaymen, The Big Short, WW2 in color on net flicks(interesting), 

The Duel (lost me somewhere) (Judge Roy Bean was a better Texas ranger movie), 

I kinda like a movie that has some history behind it.

A much better movie is "A Simple Plan".

A Simple Plan , is a very good movie,

so down to earth and realistic.

Well except finding an airplane with all that money,

that will never happen for me.

Quite OK and if you know Cornwall at all you will like it even more:

 

Fisherman's Friends

The film was made in 2019.

There's also a good ITV documentary (2010) of the same name, about the real group.

Netflix is a bit too 'woke' for me, I don't want to see my cultural heritage replaced with black actors.

Not until they're prepared to recast 'ZULU' with white Zulu tribal kings anyway.

 

I wonder when they'll start making westerns where the Indians are played by black actors?

How exactly is a fantasy, fictional story with fictional countries and places "your cultural heritage"?

Human Target

 

Found this one on RARBG the other day.
Plenty of action and laughs.
Not not to be taken too seriously.

Summary: A unique bodyguard protects his clients by secretly infiltrating their lives in order to draw out and eliminate threats.

 

 

 

The wife and I are really enjoying this series.

 

As she says... "he's better than James Bond"! :laugh:

Episode 2, the black kid has escaped and all sorts of people are looking for him.

No other black kids in the country so far.

So the hunters go into a pub .......

"we're looking for a kid"

"What does he look like?"

"Well he's a bit skinny and small"

 

No mention that he's black, no mention that he has 'Afro style' hair ..........

I guess they didn't notice he was black!

That doesn't answer the question about it being part of your heritage.

Same as Mrs Muton, she likes the action stuff and a bit of comedy thrown in doesn't hurt.

Just downloaded the season.

Astounding levels of nudity, sex and orgies.

And all really pretty girls, if you like looking at tits, this is the series to watch.

It ain't Westworld but not too bad and worth watching if you're an SF fan. First episode makes it look like typical cr.a.p but it picks up thereafter. Many of the critics on the 'net don't like deviation from the book and many wanted an anti-Trump 1984 kind of series.
