I have a question, is anyone here up to date with The Walking Dead? I haven't watched any of the last few seasons and I was wondering if it's even worth it to catch back up.
Some of the middle seasons are pretty good, but I just lost interest somewhere in the middle of season 9 and haven't quite had the urge to go back to it.Recently I decided to continue again, though I'm still wallowing in the third season, so I'm not gonna be able to help you.
Now THAT'S a great show. I watched through the whole series a few years back. From what I remember, the quality also dips slightly in the final seasons, but not nearly to the same degree as The Walking Dead.Meanwhile I also started watching Sons of Anarchy - I've seen only about 4 episodes so far, but the creators definitely know better how to make something interesting.
I think it dipped a lot more than slightly, but the early seasons are good.Now THAT'S a great show. I watched through the whole series a few years back. From what I remember, the quality also dips slightly in the final seasons, but not nearly to the same degree as The Walking Dead.
Recently watched Bumblebee, aka The Transformers prequel. I really liked it... I'm even willing to call it the best one in the franchise since the second movie.
I meant the first two live-action Bay-led movies. I find the '86 animated one like I find most cartoons from my childhood, absolute dribble. All of it. TMNT, Voltron, Thundercats, Silverhawks, G.I Joe, etc. They had great theme songs, great "transformation" sequences (He-Man, Voltron), and one or two good recycled action animations, but that's it. None of them aged well.Are you counting Bay's first Transformers as the second movie (after the '86 one) or am I correct in thinking you enjoyed Revenge of the Fallen?
I also really enjoyed Bumblebee, though I do wish it had a few more bot vs bot action scenes, though the ones we got had some surprisingly brutal moments. I also really appreciated that I could actually see what was going on during said fight scenes, something that always bugged me with Bayformers - watching two lumps of grey metal go at each other with no fucking idea who was who.
On the subject of Michael Bay, I watched The Rock recently. God, what a great film that is, Sean Connery is having a blast and I'm all for it. Shame Michael Biehn didn't get a bigger role, but he totally nailed it. What a way to go out.
And on the subject of Michael Biehn, I watched Alien3 (or Alien cubed) over the weekend. God, what a boring film that was. I liked the idea of going back to a Alien-esque setting (a lone Alien against unarmed humans), but they they completely failed at bringing in any of the suspense or fear factor of that first film and it's a huge step down from the action-packed Aliens. Also, why wouldn't Ripley tell anybody what she was afraid of finding in Newt's body? I assume nobody believed her in Aliens because they were part of the Weyland/Yutani company and were trying to cover up their interest in the alien, but the prison wasn't involved with the company, was it? I dunno, I switched off a bit for most of it. Suppose I should watch Resurrection at some point but I hear that's even worse.
