I’m currently watching the German show Perfume, based on the old classic book of same name. It’s a modern take/retelling. It’s a slow burn mystery. I tried to get my wife to watch it with me, she was passing out during the first episode and called it boring, I believe. I like the slow burn, eerie, deep mystery going on myself. But then again, my favorite movie is Hitchcock’s Vertigo which is also kind of a slow burn mystery.
So I’ve never been a big Jason Voorhees fan, so naturally I had no desire to watch Jason X. But the other day, I saw it in Netflix and the description started off with, “In the year 2455,” and I knew it was gonna be a hot mess. So naturally, I had to watch it.
I can confirm. It’s a hot mess.
My wife and I have been watching True Blood. We had never seen it before. But we’ve been binging through the series. And as we get closer and closer to the end of the series, it becomes a little bittersweet, because we lost Nelsan Ellis recently. He played Lafayette. He’s been one of my favorite characters. And as a performer what he could accomplish with a look or flick of a finger is profound. He’s been such a delight to watch.
Check out these gifs I found of Nelsan as Lafayette. Enjoy them. And Nelsan, rest in peace.
Tip yo waitress.
My son is watching Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue, and I’m like, “Yeah, but it ain’t no Seaquest.”
Whenever my son goes binging all (ALL) the Power Rangers shows, I get an itch to make my own comedic take. I’m about the right age to play a teen in a 90s show, too. I’ll be 35 in October.
Finally watched Kong: Skull Island. I don’t normally want to see these kinds of flicks, big monster flicks (especially remade ones). And I’ve avoided the recent Godzilla stuff. But this one looked good from the first trailer that dropped. And I was not disappointed. It had a lot more going on then the trailers even implied, which was nice.
Also, I thought I was gonna hate John C. Riley’s character based on the trailers. But his turned out to be one of the best, most developed characters in the whole film.
