That too, mate. There’s definitely something to the much longer arc of time with which a good series of any genre has the freedom to work in terms of character development/growth and multi-layered story telling. There’s virtually no limit to the possibilities when the almost worn out Time Travel theme - from as far back as Quantum Leap, to the current Travellers and Timeless.

In the past couple months I have watched Valerian and Jupiter Ascending - two somewhat similar ~9 figure budget films that had some fun special effects and some potentially interesting ideas that were mostly ruined by an over-strong love story plot.

Sherlock Holmes 2009. Good action movie. I thought the sets were very well done, except the last fight scene in which the scaffolding looked artificial for some reason.

Just watched the first episode of Dirty Money: Hard NOx on Netflix about the emissions scandal involving German car manufacturers specifically focusing on VW.

Very informative and entertaining and revealing just how long german car companies have been outright lying to us and putting us all in danger of health problems even death.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Saw it on the plane flying from LA to Atlanta. Good movie, but LA folks still have a hard time playing rural.

Even against my best instincts, I failed to pass up the opportunity to waste another couple of hours on the most recent - but from cliff-hanger ending not likely last?- episode in the Ridley Scott Alien franchise - i.e Covenant. At least it was just a movie channel not $15 theatre ticket, and I could control the SPL of bombast with my remote.
Is it just me, or do these get more convoluted and non-sensible each time? Cool enough CGI though.

CGI can look so incredibly good when they do it right.
Wish the storylines had more focus...
Like the LOTR films, angered me to no end watching the first one. I had to grudgingly accept it was just a completely different story that shared the same name, then it was "halfway ok". It is supposed to be 6 books! Not 3! Why on earth did they ruin the whole thing by cutting most of it out?

Another thing that really ticks me off with modern movies is the insane waving about with the cameras whenever there is a little bit of action. Couple it with the low framerate of movies and it's mostly: angry mugshot-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-evenangriermugshotlayingdownonthegroundwithabitofd irtontheface-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-Suddenlyupagainandpunchingtheotherguyrepeatedly-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe--randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-randomframe-victory! Everyone's happy/kissing and whatnot- cue endscene

But it's probably just me being a grumpy 35 year old fart again.
