Hey guys!! Sorry it’s been a while and I think my life (lol) is settling down! Got the rental home cleaned and moved out into my new home! I got my system set up to Dolby Atmos 5.4.3! I am pretty happy with it so far!

As far as horror goes I bought the Hills Have Eyes on blu and Hardcore Henry (not really horror but lots of blood!) and watched John Wick 3 yesterday!

Good to see the thread is still chugging along! I also can’t wait to see the new Child’s Play, IT2 (yummy Chastain!)and Three From Hell!

I can already hear the reeeeeeeeeeee over Amazon and LotR series. I saw Sam Raimi was doing the Kingkiller (Name of the Wind) movie and that series is getting a TV show as well. I say bring it on.


I enjoyed the Legend of the Seeker series as well but we're it to launch this month it'd be panned so hard. I'm so tired of capes I'm ready for a shift into another genre. There's enough fantasy books in several series that could do a cinematic universe justice.

Agreed!
Binging GOT while going thru stuff was pretty awesome! I liked the last season and I think folks just want more! I don’t mind capes but I want to see more stuff like GOT being produced!

This has nothing to do with this thread . But maybe you may take interest or some one else. I went to collage in Minneapolis.
I love the Women's College World Series . I have been watching it for 25 years.

Minnesota Golden Gophers defeated the LSU Tigers 3-0 to advance to the 2019 Women's College World Series for the first time ever. It was one hell of a softball game. I will be rooting for Minnesota Golden Gophers . .

The 2019 Women’s College World Series starts Thursday, May 30 with play lasting through June 4/5. On ESPN & ESPN 2 It will be played in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for the 23rd consecutive season and 29th time in the past 30 years.


I have to purchase 3D Blu-Rays from UK , Japan , France , Germany ect . It is hard to find 3D in the USA. My mail call arrived on Saturday from London.

Saw 3D: The Final Chapter (2010) 2D-3D Blu-Ray---Stream on iTunes

Saw 3D was crazy, some of the most frenetic, surreal death scenes in the entire series, ultra-ultraviolent sendoff to an ultraviolent series .

I watched "Rim of the World" last night on Netflix. Fun movie and very "camp." I seen articles bashing it as I guess they wanted another tentpole movie or something more "adult".
Followed it with the first episode of season 3 of "Slasher" which just became available on Netflix.
Weird weather pattern in the US with part of the country baking while the west coast is cold.

We'll bake soon enough, but it will be dry heat. 95 degrees and 10 % humidity can feel pretty good. I've been where 80 degrees and 60 percent humidity can feel like __________ (profanities redacted ). And mosqitos __________ _______ (profanities redacted).

I was born and raised in SC, lived in MS and MO three years each, and currently reside in northern NJ. People up here complain about humidity, and I have to just laugh. I tell them to visit Louisiana in July and get back to me. We visited some friends in Phoenix in early September last year, and that definitely confirmed the whole humidity thing for sure. It was in the mid to upper 90s and definitely hot, but without the humidity, it is actually kinda bearable. However, I do absolutely hate hot weather regardless of moisture levels in the air. I'm still looking at places like Montreal or parts thereabouts and saying with saucy eyes, "how you doin?" Of course, adding to my self-inflicted curse, I would love to be able to look out a window and see the ocean some day. Newfoundland it is!

Anywho, not really horror but certainly horrific, Chernobyl has been quite engaging. So well made with attention to detail and just capturing what went down. I've always been curious about it as a subject, and it just does so well in creating dread and uneasy feelings. Just something about knowing, as an audience, "wow, all these people are going to die, and they have no idea." It is gut wrenching.

Totally off-topic but binged Fleabag entirely in one evening. That show was pretty amazing. Absolutely loved the main character (Phoebe Waller-Bridge), and Andrew Scott playing the priest was fantastic. Already loved him from his portrayal of Moriarty in Sherlock, and he does an amazing job with this. Need to look into his work more...

I'm halfway through the third season of "Slasher" on Netflix. I can't recall the first two seasons but I don't think I'll forget this one. The Druid slasher is way over the top.

I sometimes complain about MN humidity but I also lived in Charleston SC back in the 90’s and yeah that is humid! Especially working on airplanes all day lol!

Yeah that Chernobyl series is great! Really messed up stuff happened and I felt bad for all those people that had to work around it!

The Wandering Earth (2019) Netflix

Sci-fi epic earns its thrills with exciting set pieces and dazzling special effects.
The Wandering Earth is a Chinese science-fiction blockbuster based upon the critically acclaimed novella of the same name by award-winning author Liu Cixin. The movie convinces with stunning visual and sound effects that bring a dystopian world to live. The action sequences are intense. The acting performances are solid enough to make you care about the fates of the characters until the spectacular ending.

I read an article yesterday about how people were getting sick watching "The Perfection" on Netflix, so I was compelled to watch it last night. Needless to say the crowd that was getting sick never watch the movies we watch here.

Watched The Curse of La Llorona yesterday. Save for some typical jump scares, I thought the movie was not bad. Had good imagery and was shot well. Good sound mix too (these Conjuring universe movies tend to always have bombastic sound mixes).

A little off-topic, but this is the only thread I really post to any more...

I finally got around to building my movie collection shelves. I wanted to use all of the space so I custom built my own shelves using zinc L-brackets and pine boards. To future-proof it I built in lots of extra space to grow. I also installed track lighting to improve the lighting and also to make it a bit reminiscent of movie spotlights.

Next I want to build some pine bookends to keep the DVDs on the ends upright instead of leaning them inward.

Gorgeous! Fantastic job! Life goals...

I watched this recently. This is really long, but the way this guy has his room designed around all of his movies and memorabilia is just next level. Granted, he has a lot of movies that are just not so great, like, he's a completist to a neurotic level, but I have to respect the design of it all.

[QUOTE=Bob McLaughlin;58119360]A little off-topic, but this is the only thread I really post to any more...

I finally got around to building my movie collection shelves. I wanted to use all of the space so I custom built my own shelves using zinc L-brackets and pine boards. To future-proof it I built in lots of extra space to grow. I also installed track lighting to improve the lighting and also to make it a bit reminiscent of movie spotlights.

Next I want to build some pine bookends to keep the DVDs on the ends upright instead of leaning them inward.

Very nice Some nice titles in there too. You almost have to build your own storage, most storage units and furniture are just too deep. Oh the beer drinking deer likes it too THO: "Hey ! " THO drinks..."Nice one Bob..I approve "

So how many of those movies have you watched more than once? Hollywood loves ya!


I've been thinking of boxing up most of my DVD collection. BD's and my 3 UHDs may stay on the shelf however.


"A Breathe Away" is a French apocalyptic movie available on Hulu. The premise is that a fog overtakes Paris killing most of the population except for those who are able to get above the fog. Tres interresante!
