Couldn’t get past the pronunciation of Marcella
What is the original name of Coachella
From the director of True Detective
Didn’t this come out like5 years ago?
Whoops, I guess so. I've never seen yet
Old but good.
lol I thought I remembered it being like their first real attempt at an Oscar
Watched the first 4 episodes of Sweet Home last night. Digging it.
yeah weird. This is a Netflix release.
Wonder why they said "now" on Netflix.
I'm 5 episodes into Giri/Haji and it's maybe the best show I've seen from 2020.
Just finished this show and I was wrong about the bolded part. The second season of this show is damn good. Like, really, really good. The first season is such a slow burn but ultimately it sets up the 2nd season fantastically. If you like criminal/political dramas I definitely recommend. Just know going in that it's slow going at first. If you stick with it, it's definitely worth it.
It's a real shame that it only lasted 2 seasons but upon reading the shows Wiki page, it was cancelled with some controversy. Apparently it originally aired on the CBC which is their public broadcasting station and was highly acclaimed but rumors are that the government or certain high ranking officials got it cancelled. There was a certain storyline that painted a bad picture for them.
I enjoyed Spycraft.
I’m back to Alone. Mongolia season
There more seasons than just the same one up on Netflix now?
It is pretty good.
Struggling through watching The Assignment right now.
The season I’m watching currently is on Hulu so this was more of a Netflix adjacent post
Watched Nightstalker doc last night. Enjoyed but left wanting more on killer's backstory. Checked Wiki and found out everything I needed to know
Ramirez was born in El Paso, Texas, on February 29, 1960, the youngest of Julian and Mercedes Ramirez's five children. His father Julián, a Mexican national and former Ciudad Juárez policeman who later became a laborer on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, was prone to fits of anger that often resulted in physical abuse.
As a 12-year-old, Richard—or "Richie", as he was known to his family—was strongly influenced by his older cousin, Miguel ("Mike") Ramirez, a decorated Green Beret combat veteran who often boasted of his gruesome exploits and abuses during the Vietnam War. He shared Polaroid photos of his victims, including Vietnamese women he had raped. In some of the photos, Mike posed with the severed head of a woman he had abused. Richard, who had begun smoking marijuana at the age of 10, bonded with Mike over joints and gory war stories. Mike taught his young cousin some of his military skills, such as killing with stealth. Around this time, Ramirez began to seek escape from his father's violent temper by sleeping in a local cemetery.
Richard was present on May 4, 1973, when his cousin Mike fatally shot his wife, Jessie, in the face with a .38 caliber revolver during a domestic argument. After the shooting, Richard became sullen and withdrawn from his family and peers. Later that year, Richard moved in with his older sister, Ruth, and her husband, Roberto, an obsessive "peeping Tom" who took Richie along on his nocturnal exploits. Ramirez also began using LSD and cultivated an interest in Satanism. Mike was found not guilty of Jessie's murder by reason of insanity and was released in 1977, after four years of incarceration at the Texas State Mental Hospital. His influence over Ramirez continued.
The adolescent Ramirez began to meld his burgeoning sexual fantasies with violence, including forced bondage and rape. While still in school, he took a job at a local Holiday Inn, where he used his passkey to rob sleeping patrons. His employment ended abruptly after Ramirez attempted to rape a woman in her hotel room, before her husband returned to find them. Although the husband beat Ramirez senseless at the scene, criminal charges were dropped when the couple, who lived out of state, declined to return to testify against him.
Ramirez dropped out of Jefferson High School in the ninth grade. At the age of 22, he moved to California, where he settled permanently.
I mean, could there be a more surefire backstory for creating a serial killer? The father, then the cousin, then the BIL....fucking yikes.
Also crazy to see the connections between the events of the doc and the Vietnam War. Almost feels like the horrors of the war manifesting themselves at home
One more interesting thing from Wiki....the thing where women love serial killers? Yeah, there's a word for that:
Netflix is making a Redwall series and movie. My god. I read those books over and over when I was young 'un.
1 episode in and this Cecil Hotel disappearance documentary is off to a very rough start
Feels like it'll be dragged out with uninteresting filler
Damn, that sucks. I was kind of excited for that one.
Any solid shows that are Boomer dad-- averse to sex scenes and vulgarity-- friendly? Always have trouble finding good recs for him. Breaking Bad is his favorite and 'on the edge' for him, lol.
I think the first episode was 5% actual story and the rest was uninteresting interviews with the front desk lady, janitor, cop, a dumb British couple, and a book store employee that met her for a minute. The rest is her stupid tumblr diary posts.
Godless. Queen's Gambit. Last Kingdom.
WW2 in color
google 'shows about submarines'
Better yet “shows based on books about submarines”.
My parents are adverse to the same things, I also got them to watch "Alone" which they liked.
Haven’t watched any of the doc, but watched a short YouTube vid on the girl. Final result is incredibly anticlimactic.
Just finished it... it could have been 15-20 minutes. I've never seen so much shameless filler added to a documentary.
It was a piece of shit
Edit: turns out I only finished half. It is a piece of shit, so far
would like another Black Summer season
Giri/Haji is p good.
Just finished Sweet Home. Really, really enjoyed it.
Terrible. No thanks.
Halfway through Friendsgiving and this legit might be the worst movie of all time
Huge piece of shit
Definitely recommend it. Only going to be one season but Im not mad at that, they wrap things up nicely. Kind of reminded me of a Japanese/Brit Fargo.
Just canceled Netflix. Anything they’ve put out in the last year has been dogshit
i am just messing with you but you are right. I am trying to get into something right now since we can’t do anything and there really isn’t a good new show or movie.
And they always seem to have a real hard time acquiring and retaining rights to good non-Netflix movies. Netflix is rough if you aren't a huge fan of true crime/serial killer stuff
Meant to quote texasraider but guess I messed that up
Well that's 4 hours I'll never get back
Just watched I Care A Lot.
The fucking arrogant bitch who manipulates the system to steal from the elderly wins?!? Fuck that movie. At least she got, got in the very end.
Do we have the same dad?
I found myself not caring one bit about her plight.
She (Rosamund Pike) plays such a good psycho bitch type character. I hate her characters but respect her ability to play them.
I'm almost through turn: washington's spies and love it. That's probably in line with BB.
