I had HBO for free for years as a Comcast "customer retention" thing (yeah, I'm sure HBO got their money). When I cut the cable the only thing I did keep around was Showtime when it was offered as an addon to Hulu. Overall I realized I watched more Showtime series and movies over the years than I did HBO. And HBO often wanted $5 a month more than Showtime. I did get HBO Now as a free trial on my Roku TV and caught up on some series before canceling. I can though turn it on any time (and back off too) getting billed for a month. More likely to buy a month of Prime TV which is easy to catch up on some of it's series and movies.


I tried GoT when it launched on HBO but it was not my cuppa. Not really a fantasy fan. Give me occult and ghost stories any day (as long as they have an arc).

Really? I was looking forward to seeing it considering it has a rating of 6.8 or so on IMDb.

Opinions vary. Argento's original was a horror story with colorful art film gloss. This is made by art school filmmakers who have no idea what horror entails. It seems to me they try to imitate a genre they wouldn't normally watch.

But you should judge for yourself.

You can totally skip the first three seasons of Got and be fine. Unless you just hate fantasy ish stuff. My Wife refuses to watch LotR but loves GoT so go figure.

Finally watched Avengers: Endgame yesterday in IMAX with Laser. Really like it, probably more so than Avengers: Infinity War. The real highlight for me was them showing the Godzilla: King of the Monsters 5 minute IMAX trailer before the movie. That was GLORIOUS. I had already seen videos of it online but seeing it in the actual theater was awesome. I am/was more excited for King of the Monsters than Endgame.

Joe Bob had a pretty good selection last night: "WolfCop" which joked a bit about it being a Saskatchewan movie and "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer" and had the director, John McNaughton on as guest. I had not seen "WolfCop" (2014) before and it was an enjoyable dark comedy. I had seen "Henry.." way back in the early 1990s on VHS along with my sister and brother-in-law who also liked the film. Since it was shot 1:37 on 16mm we didn't miss anything with it being on VHS and was probably the full version which also played last night.

Skeletons In The Closet.

An anthology with two wrap around stories. One a babysitter setup the other a late night horror TV show like Svengoolie with a twist. Something like six total stories if I counted correctly. Entertaining for sure. High quality? No. Fun? Yes.

Watched Devil at the Crossroads. It's a Netflix documentary about Robert Johnson and the legend he sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads. His story loosely inspired the 1986 movie Crossroads with Ralph Macchio and Steve Vai. Sadly there's only two photographs of him and no footage exists. He only recorded 29 songs. But modern rock n roll owes itself to Mr. Johnson and what he could do with that guitar. If you like this sort of thing it's pretty good.

Seems that lizards don't like coffee grounds so I found a new use for the press and brew grounds I have other than giving them to the rose bushes (who happen to like coffee).


I watched Hulu's "In the Dark" offering for May: "All That We Destroy". I thought it one of the better "In the Dark" offerings.


I see that Shudder got hacked but apparently nothing significant. Maybe their IT department shouldn't be on a shoestring budget. I wonder if Shudder will get "Killing Eve" season 2 before Hulu does since AMC owns BBC Ameria and is running "The Discovery of Witches" right after which was launched on Shudder two months ago.

Watched The Hills Have Eyes: Unrated (2006) yesterday. When I first watched this movie back in the theater in 2006, I thought it was alright. Re-watching today it looks like a masterpiece compared to some of the "usual" horror movies we get these days. I other words, I really liked this repeat viewing. Great sound mix too.

Man, this movie has been in development for damn near 5 years. Looks like the Kickstarter campaign finally paid off. Lets go!

Quote:
In the Arctic a team of geologists discovers a Nazi warship that was thought to be lost: the
Himmelsfaust, a gigantic steel colossus from the Third Reich, brimming with unimaginable
destruction machines. On that ship scientists researched top-secret, war-critical weapons and
created the Reichsflughaie: rocket-powered monsters whose pilots are genetically mutated,
supernaturally endowed supersoldiers with supernatural powers.

Dr. Klaus Richter, the spiritual forefather of this experiment, is forced to stop his deadly army of the
undead in order to save humanity and the planet Earth from the seemingly certain doom. His
daughters Angelique and Diabla face the threat that their father set up 75 years ago …

Time does not heal all wounds!

DOWN (2019) Into The Dark series on HULU

A pair of office workers get trapped in an elevator over a long Valentine's Day weekend, but what at first promises to be a romantic connection turns dangerous and horrifying.

I am behind on HULU's award-winning producer, Jason Blum's independent TV studio's monthly horror film .
This one was good. Basically only two actors one male and one good looking female . I enjoyed the excellent character development AND grindhouse-style shocks. This episode offered real suspense, violent fun, and a tightly effective script.



The Body (2018) Into The Dark series on HULU

A sophisticated hitman with a cynical view on modern society finds his work made more difficult when he has to transport a body on Halloween night, but everyone is enamored by what they think is his killer costume.

"The Body" is interesting enough to hold one's attention easily all the way through, and is very smartly-written. Blumhouse production's are growing on me . There's a little bit of everything in this one: gore, drama, action, humor...you name it. I put this film in the series off do to lackluster reviews . I'm glad I checked The first installment of Hulu's Into the Dark out. "The Body" was great ! Underrated .

So that's what happened to it, I remember hearing about this and then... With the end of Sharknado there is a gap to be filled.

I polished off "Tijuana" last night on Netflix. It's a great Mexican series about a free press newspaper in Tijuana where the original founder was offed. Not horror but well done and a lot of suspense.


Feel flooded with so much offered streaming in the way of movies and even series that fit the horror/sci-fi bill. Netflix added China's "The Wandering Earth" over the weekend.

A middle of the road evil kid movie. Some decent violence but OITNB Piper stinks it up as mommy.

2009's Orphan was miles better.

Whoa. I would strongly (and respectfully) disagree. My first time through the series was very confusing in the first couple of seasons due to the overwhelming number of characters, locations, events that are referenced. Actually considered giving up on it halfway through season 1. But the introduction of the characters and their backstories along with some incredibly powerful twists and turns in the story in the first few seasons are essential viewings IMO. I actually restarted the show in preparation for the final season and it was so much better the second time around. Much easier to follow and a whole new level of appreciation for the story. Best show ever, from top to bottom.

Crossroads....now that's a blast from the past. I saw it as a teen a number of times and really loved it. Might have to see if there's a reasonable way to gain access to it. Actually, looks like Prime has it available. Very cool

Well I tried to watch "The Wandering Earth" last night. Seems to be a CG extravaganza and I fell asleep after about a half hour. China's answer to South Korea's "Snowpiercer"?

No worries, I found it strange, that me, a fantasy fan, had such a hard time "liking" it. It clicked when Jof died for me.

Been ages since I’ve seen it too. Good to know Prime has it. Will add it to my watch list.

I remember wanting to see this. Then forgot all about it. Then the other day someone posted about it in another thread. I said oh yeah, I wanted to watch that. Then forgot about it until your post. Lol. If it’s that bad maybe it’s a good thing I keep forgetting about it.😆
