    I liked Bright well enought...it has its problems but i would say is a good movie....around 7/10

    I guess i agree with some critics that the action escene are a little confusing...they are not full 00's shaky cam disaster...but too many cuts

    SPOILERS

    What a waste of Naomi Rapace

    The fairy scene...was just.....why?...i hated that so much

    I enjoyed Bright, I think anyone who is a fan of Will Smith at least will like it. Next up: Black Mirror season 4!

    We have the medium "streaming only" plan which is 2 HD screens for approx $11 per month.
    There are no ads and it is convenient if you have multiple screens (tv,phone,tablet)

    IMO Netflix is better for watching full seasons of shows that are on basic cable or broadcast networks along with original shows like House of Cards, Orange is the new black, and all the Marvel live shows which include Daredevil, Jessica Jones,Luke Cage,Punisher, and Defenders.(iron fist sucks lol)
    They have some showtime programs, but nothing from other "premium movie channels"like HBO, Cinemax etc.

    While they have some current Hollywood hits, (like Dr Strange civil War, ), chances are the movie you want to find will not be on there.
    OR if it is, it will be added or removed at random. Many of the movies that are marked as new are really old ones that have returned to their service after being taken down.
    I would not get Netflix for the movie section unless you like older stuff ,documentaries, or foreign stuff.

    bright was very serviceable as a buddy cop/action movie.
    dialogue was okay and the characterizations were very basic, kinda like an rpg which is the point I guess.
    I actually liked Jakoby as a character better than I did Ward (Will Smith is just channeling Will Smith from every other movie he made).
    the plot was thin and not explained well and I concur that the social commentary was pretty heavy-handed.

    since it's getting a sequel, I'm looking forward to seeing the Dark Lord sub-plot getting explained along with some development of the characters.
    7/10 for me.

    im curious how netflix tells if something is doing good. its a very word of mouth based program, so if you say something good or bad people will wanna check it out. But for something like a movie..how do you determine if its a good thing? based on social media response? at least with a tv show people will stop watching episodes, but even then it can work in peoples favors ie.iron fist.

    Bright was decent until the end, the last 3rd of the movie just felt disconnected from the rest of the movie. I also hate it when movies can't decide when to end.

    I watched the first ep of Black Mirror, good ep but nothing grabbed me like previous seasons yet (felt like we've been here before) but still only 1 ep in. Great casting though :lol:

    Probably by how many views it gets and user ratings. I usually rate stuff with the "star" thingy after i see it. If the views on something is low, or the user ratings are low, they'll know it kinda sucks.

    its not a star system anymore, its thumbs up or down...you arent allowed to have a middle ground anymore.

    This The Sinner show is some dookie. Bitch stabs some random guy to death on the beach, cue 8 episodes of Bill Pullman diving into her personal history of growing up in a strict Jesus camp household and promptly turning into the gangbang girl. Yea that excuses her.

    Stay away lads, some treacherous SJW ladden waters abound.

    New Black Mirror is out, gunna check it.

    Edit: saw Bright when it came out, thought it was really decent lol.

    Black Mirror was brilliant, might be the best season so far.

    I'm getting soft in my old age, Hang the DJ was my favourite ep, Metalhead being the scariest vision of the future.
    Black Mirror universe is connected, in Black Museum the owner references season 3's San Junipero episode and you see devices DNA extractor device from the USS Callister ep

    Caught What Happened to Monday and I honestly feel it has a good premise derailed by cliche. Noomi Rapace does a good job but the script,
    went from a story about sisters in hiding to another action dystopia stop the evil organization we see every year.

    I would feel the same, but
    in the movie's defense, there wasn't that many places to go. Logically, the septuplets would be found out sooner or later, and shit would go down. But yeah, they could have been a little less cliche.

    In the last month, Ive watched a lot of Netflix stuff (when its cold, Im less inclined to play video games lol)

    Punisher S1: 9/10 Excellent

    Stranger things S1/S2: 8/10 Feels like a good melange of ET/x-men/Horror.

    Glow S1: 7.5/10
    Im not into wrestling ,but I like the character interaction and 1980s timeframe (I watched this right after Stranger Things so I was in a 80s lovefest)

    Master of None S1/S2: 8.5/10
    I thought this was just going to be a silly comedy, but I liked the dramatic elements and I could relate to the Morning/Parents episodes a lot.
    He shot himself in the foot with the percent bit at the end of S1 though.
    The foodie aspects doesnt really grab me as much.

    Dave Chappelle Equanimity and Bird Revelation specials:
    8.5/10 and 7.5/10 respectively
    I liked both. The first one was equally enjoyable as the previous 2 specials he did a few months ago.
    The second feels like Dave was on a leash and couldnt go all out due to the sexual harrasment stuff.
    Also, its weird but I wish the second was in a bigger venue. It looks better imo when a comedy special is bigger and Dave's whole body can be seen(more zoomed out).
    Dave has some good body language bits and the third special wasnt as dynamic to me. Most of it was static.

    Lots of hate on the internet about The OA. But there are some sequences (NDEs) in this show that are visual masterpieces, up there with American Gods. Would like to see more of those. Going to keep a lookout for season 2 of this show.

    Sens8 was kinda all over the place imo, kinda like Cloud Atlas but more dragged out and generally inconsistent in the story telling whereas the former was based in a book obviously.

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm a sucker for children's shows, and I eagerly look forward to Llama Llama. I loved the book series' illustrations, and while modified somewhat (and the main character now older), the designs are mostly unchanged.

    Cruella: Well, what can I say? Accidents will happen.
    Roger: We're having puppies, too.
