I've watched all episodes of The Mandalorian recently as well, and while I agree that they're lightyears ahead of the sequel trilogy there's still room for improvement. OK, so at least this time they got two things right: good story and interesting characters. However, I still have an issue with Disney's obsession of re-using familiar elements and aestethics. Even when they try to create original stuff, like planets for example, they still look like a mixture between Bespin and Tatooine or something. I'm getting tired of seeing the same old stuff on planets that's supposed to be new and have their own unique style. Just take the Jawas for example, in the old canon they can only be found on Tatooine but now in Disney's canon they can be found on countless of different planets, apparently. It's getting tiredsome. Say what you want about George Lucas but at least he tried to make every single planet look unique in its own way.

Yup, I also noticed the Luke scene at the end of Season 2 looked eerily similar aesthetically to the Vader Death Star scene from Rogue One. When I was watching, I thought "they literally just ripped Luke in place of Darth and swapped the Troopers with droids". I was amped when it happened, but I couldn't help but gawk at how much it copies the Vader Rogue One scene.

Anyways, I just watched Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max over the Christmas break, hated it. I came in wanting to like it, I really did as I enjoyed the hell out of the first movie, but it wasn't good at all. There's so many plot holes in this movie, I'm surprised none of the actors fell through them and broke their neck during filming, topped off with such horrid pacing. It was a total snooze to get through. When your movie is 2 and a half hours and only 15-20 or so minutes of action, most of it at the end, your characters better be hella interesting, and they weren't in the slightest. There's clunky dialog with boring character arcs that go nowhere throughout the bulk of the movie after that cheesy mall scene, which left me cringing. This is to say nothing of all the aforementioned plot holes during that time, and some real headscratchers at that.

Oh, and Wonder Woman totally raped that guy. WTF were they thinking? If the roles were reversed, everyone would rightfully be calling for WB execs' and Patty Jenkins' head on a platter. This is as bad, if not worse than the "Martha" sh!t in BvS.

Haven't watched Wonder Woman 84 yet, but now I am more intrigued than ever. haha.

On New Years Day, I just sat in bed and binged ALL of Cobra Kai Season 3. That show is so over the top, but it still really gets my little heart pounding. I really enjoyed the arcs of the season and the finale was well done. I am glad that they are taking their time with the characters and not rushing them in to being different people. Sure, Johnny is learning how to be more responsible and how to be a better teacher, but he is clearly still a douche. And sometimes it's all good and sometimes it's an absolute mess. But that is what makes the character interesting. Same goes for Daniel. The characters are so great at their highs, but sometimes even better at their lows.

And the return to Japan arc was so sweet and heart warming. It's crazy we'll be waiting so long for Season 4 (how long can these actors stay 17?)

Well, because of boredom..I’ve been watching Ripper Street on Netflix and I’m a wee bit addicted. I’ve also been watching Monty Python’s Flying Circus for the umpteenth time.

Watching and re watching some of the DC extend universe movie or whatever is Called now
The only good movie about this universe are batman vs superman extended cut and shazam, maybe the two wonder woman a bit, the other are just bad or lame movies...

One notable thing is that the every movie just got the actors right and they deliver good performances , whoever selected theme did an amazing job

Here s my vote

Man of steel 4
Batman vs superman extended cut 8
Justice league 4
Wonder woman 6.5
Wonder woman 84 6.5
Suicide squad 6.5
Acquaman 5
Shazam 7.5
Bird of prey 6.5
Joker 6

Really hope warner brows decide to do something good whit the DC universe because they really have no idea on what they're doing, probably matt reeves batman is the only glow of light for the future, and i also hope Snyder cut will be good

I just got through most of the first season of True Blood on HBO Max, am really enjoying this show so far. This has the most unique take on vampires of any movie or show I've ever seen, and I'm loving it. The vamps have a unique personality relative to other movies or shows that has me coming back for more and the characters are all fleshed out and interesting in their own way, perfectly mixing humor with horror. I like how this show actually acknowledges the existence of vampires, even has vampire-branded beer and blood medicine.

I hear it drops off in quality after 5 seasons, though, so we'll just see how it goes, but I'll continue to watch.

Some gosh-awful online reading of a school book with my eldest son for his work today. It's so boring...would much rather be watching Bridgerton
