    I have a friend who is the same and I don't really understand it at all.

    Is there a simpler/dumber plot for a movie? "Big lizard destroys city".

    Like, that's it. That's the whole thing. Big lizard destroys city. The end. You may turn your brain back on as you exit the theater.

    Invincible just started on prime. Big fan of the comic so that's gonna skew my opinion but overall enjoyed the first episode

    Artwork is kind of meh but I like the voice cast. If they stick to the main plot it's going to be wild.

    Semi spoiler without any plot points
    episode starts pretty cheesy but stick through it till the end

    It's early days still, but GvK is scoring 8.1/10 on imdb, vs Godzilla King of Monsters which had a pretty dismal 6.0.

    imdb's user ratings are far from perfect but they've been pretty reliable for me over the years (shit that scores under a 7.5 or so tends to be bad to awful)

    this might not suck?

    seems like they're hitting the same creepy-funny vibe from the original movies

    finished raised by wolves.

    interesting story/world and concept and overall well done. unfortunately the acting/dialogue can be sketchy at times -- not bad enough to totally ruin the show.

    interested to see where it goes next season.

    I had that feeling about the acting and dialog from the trailer, but for all that I was still somewhat tempted to watch it. No one can accuse Ridley Scott of not having visual style, at least.

    Dunno if I already mentioned it but I finally got around to watching Deadwood, almost twenty years late to the party. Only coming up on the end of the first season but man, what a show—and for 2004? I know it did get a decent amount of recognition in its day but it feels like no amount of recognition could be adequate for a show that well-made that long ago.

    Hbo has been in a league of their own for like 4 decades. The consistent quality is actually insane.

    If you, like I, have not watched the original TMNT live action film from 1990 in ~25 years, do yourself a favor

    Masterpiece

    Saw that shit in the theater back in the day. The TMNT hype was real.

    I rewatched it once when I was high and it was amazing, but I'm not sure I trust my judgment on that for a sober viewing.

    The script is obviously insane and is of kids’ movie resolution but the production and directing and voice acting are so far over the top of what a movie like that would get in modernity that’s it’s really surprisingly engaging

    Like I don’t wanna oversell it but I was pleasantly surprised

    I remember it being a perfect execution of the source material, in the sense that, yeah, you're actually taking a movie about mutated turtles fighting an evil ninja crime lord in NYC seriously (but not too seriously) and investing in the characters. It had a lot of charm.

    Casey Jones was a little creepier than I remembered as a kid. The forced massages aren't a great look.
