    2 movies that made me legit weep (like, hot tears streaming down my crumpled face): City Lights, and Dogfight.

    One of those movies you want to work, but doesn't.

    Overwhelmed by maudlin script and direction, it lacks sharp edges to keep the story, or even the acting, engaging over the journey.

    Plowed through a few random movies I found on Netflix (I'm short now that I've finished Mindhunter)

    Entertaining if not a bit campy. Made no attempt to work out the mathematics embedded as I watched so didn't find it as stimulating as some reviews claimed.

    Similar to The Road in bleakness. Compelling characters too.

    when i was in southern california i listened to the great KFI 640 all the time. at one point they had John Douglas do a regular show called Mindhunter that was seriously can't miss radio, just about his days as an FBI profiler, interviewing serial killers, etc. this was about 10 years ago. dunno if they archived it but if you can find it well worth a listen.

    A Cat in the Brain.

    I'm not sure what I think about it.

    Have you seen the show? Not that bad at all.

    My first movie in what feels like eons: George Michael: Freedom, courtesy of Showtime and this last tinkling finger of Crown. It’s hard not to feel somewhat moved by the documentary — especially as follower of Michael’s hair, clothing and albums, more than his life — but in the end, it’s a shallow effort, undone by the death of its director — George Michael.

    Superfans should take a pass, but if your knowledge begins and ends with his Faith album (written when he was 24!), it’s worth a look.

    3 very different scifi classics I did watch again since I watched them last time as teenager.

    Blade Runner which I haven't noticed before, uses neoclassical architecture and clothing style which combined futuristic film noir worked really well. The movie generated really great immersion and background for the story.

    Scary thing about the terminator is that sans time travel the premise of the movie is actually a concern and possibility researched now. Sequel was really perfectly executed with 95% of effects good enough for cinema at this very moment. One thing you can hold against it, it's the Hollywood action film style which deviated far from the original, and sometimes irrational behavior from T1000.

    Have you seen this? It might have been posted before. It devotes some interesting time to the Bradbury Building, used in many films, including Blade Runner. (Overall, it’s a lot of fun trying to remember just how many times you’ve seen a particular mansion, and in what films...)

    ^^This is my favorite part of the movie — the weird idea that Hollywood is anti-modern architecture because they give those houses to the villains. (I always thought it was because they’re interesting to look at, but no...it runs deeper!)

    I was pleasently surprised by "What Happened to Monday." It's a sci-fi movie with an interesting plot, I'll say no more. I can recommend it.
