Btw Many Saints of Newark was very good. Definitely worth the watch. If you’re a Sopranos fan, you’ll enjoy it.

My wife and I are still trying to watch it together, the schedules don’t always align to where she and I have time to sit down and watch something and the kid isn’t around. 

It’s on HBO Max until 10/31, if we can’t get it figured out by the end of the month, I’m watching it solo lol.

Obviously I’m not THAT deep into horror movies, you obviously have seen a ton more than me. But I do try to cycle through at least part of the 80’s “big three”, Elm Street, Friday the 13th and Halloween, each October.

I’ve been really surprised by how negative the reactions have been. I mean, it’s definitely flawed, but people are acting like it’s flaming hot garbage. I think a lot of people expected something totally different (basically for it to be entirely about Tony).

The new Mike Flanagan (The haunting of hill house, The haunting of bly manor, Doctor Sleep, Hush, Oculus, Gerald's Game, etc etc ) Netflix show is amazing too. I'd really recommend it.

 

I’m a huge fan of Mike Flanagan. I see his name attached to something — I’m watching it. I thoroughly enjoyed Midnight Mass. I love horror stuff with an isolated setting like that (island, snow, etc).

Yeah isolating your characters brings up so much tension to a story. For example, the crew of Outpost 31 in The Thing, the Nostromo crew in Alien, the Torrence family at the Overlook hotel in the Shining, all of us in NJDevs during the offseason... etc etc

I, like most people, absolutely hated the final season of GoT, but this looks pretty good…

 

I didn't hate the final season as much as most people, I had some issues with it but I also waited until the final season to watch the entire show so I wasn't waiting years for an ending so that probably factors into it too. 

This looks great though, looking forward to it.

I liked a lot of the last season, but it also felt like they forgot what they were supposed to be building to.  And then the final episode ended like a wet fart. 
 

Regardless, I’m very interested in what they do with this

So I was today years old when I found out that the old HBO "Feature Presentation" bumper was actually the beginning of a longer song with lyrics.

 

Heh heh I never knew that...

BUT, years ago, at a friend's 40th b-day, the DJ did a movie trivia contest (I cleaned up), and he played this song as the final item and asked its significance...with zero hesitation, I came up "Intro tune to HBO movies"...he said I was the first one ever to have gotten it right (found that surprising).  He then said, "Damned, you're the best I've ever seen at this, very impressive!"  I answered with "No, not really, just means I watched way too much fvcking TV in my youth!"

I’m a drummer myself…she’s pretty good, timing is a little off here and there, but not bad.  She’s already better than Lars (who is really not good, never really has been).

my aunt just recovered from chemotherapy / a double mastectomy and someone in her office just infected the entire office because they faked their [REDACTED] card. 

thankfully she’s doing okay right now. their office, in addition to firing the [silly boy], is exploring every legal avenue available to [this silly doo doo butt] in terms of punishment. Throw the book at that [man]!

that’s horrible, i’m so sorry to hear that. on my mom’s side i know (and still know!) both. oh my dad’s side; his dad passed away the day before he married my mom. talk about horrific timing. my grandma on my dad’s side passed 10 years ago and i think about her every day.

I have only very vague memories of one grandfather, who died when I was 2. I was lucky enough to have the other three grandparents for at least part of my life.
