    I watched The Accountant on the plane yesterday .. I really enjoyed it until the last 5 minutes ... they went way over the top with a really sappy ending IMO. Up to that point, a pretty fun movie

    Finished watching Fargo, the TV show (and also saw the movie before the show):

    So I didn't care about the movie too much. It was good, but not great compared to the show. Altho I kinda like it more in retrospect after getting into the show.

    I liked S1 more because I was more invested in the main characters' well-being. Molly, Gus and Lou were so likeable. Hell, I even rooted for Lester a bit before he went to the bar after getting that award in episode 8. S1 also had way more shocking moments than S2, however the characters' behaviour was way more frustrating.

    S2: Main problem was that we knew the main guy won't die which made any dangerous scenes involving him less dangerous. While all the villainious characters were solid, none of them were as good as Malvo. Probably the best episode of the show was episode 8 with the interaction between Dodd and Peggy. That was hilarious. I didn't even mind the alien subplot which was very unexpected for a show like this, but I thought that the resolution of Hanzee's plot was kinda ridiculous (apparently he gets a plastic surgery and becomes that fat white guy who gets killed by Malvo in S1).

    Btw. music in both seasons is awesome. Both the score (genius main theme + music during tense scenes) and soundtrack songs. Showrunner is same guy who did Legion and you can see numerous similarities between shows that showcase his style. Both shows have slow-motion action scenes where you can only hear the music but not the action itself, for example. Also lots of actors appear in both shows.

    I saw the movie some weeks back. Very good and weird at the same time. Loved the way the police officer did her research. Her character brought a fun balance to the film with on the other hand the dumb choices of the naive and stubborn main character leading eventually to horrible problems. Quite a unique film, the accents surely contributed to the vibe.

    I hope Wreck It Ralph features more hopping between various video game worlds. I liked the first movie but thought it spent too much time in the candy world.

    Finished season 2 of Lost.

    Very good series so far. I recall bits and pieces here and there, but I think I've watched most of this season before. Looking forward to the rest, no matter how twisted it is.
