Everything is rebooted
Awesome. I felt like there was so much untapped potential with the Mighty Ducks. The first three movies barely scratched the surface.
No Emiliooooo, no buy from me.
Altered Carbon in less than a week!
Here they say it is too violent for its own good. It's almost like they didn't read the books.... Dummies
2nd episode in for J.K. Simmons' COUNTERPART and I already love the series.
Love the attention to details and the realistic scenarios that played out like the cold open where Other Side Howard stuffed his ears with tissue(?) before being escorted in the Bulgarian's car. I thought there was going to be an explosion but it was just he was expecting to shoot his way out in the car and the noise would have been deafening inside the small confines of a car. That is so cool. In most or all of the TV shows or movies, you just see people shooting inside the car with no ramifications to the ear.
THE LEFTOVERS' Nicole Kassell to Direct WATCHMEN Pilot for HBO
Damon Lindelof is enlisting a familiar face to direct the Watchmen pilot. Nicole Kassell, who helmed a pair of episodes of Lindelof's The Leftovers, has been tapped to direct the pilot for the prolific showrunner's adaptation of Alan Moore's beloved graphic novel.
Picked up to pilot in September, Lindelof is writing the script and executive producing the potential series via his Warner Bros. Television-based White Rabbit banner. Kassell will also exec produce on top of directing.
Kassell directed two key episodes of HBO's The Leftovers: season two's "No Room at the Inn" and season three's "It's a Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt World." She directed the pilot for TNT's Claws and counts helming work on HBO's Westworld and Vinyl, FX's The Americans andAMC's Better Call Saul, as well as the finales for ABC's American Crime and the upcoming Hulu J.J. Abrams/Stephen King anthology Castle Rock. On the feature side, Kassell's directing credits include The Woodsman, which she co-wrote with Steven Farber. She is repped by WME, Management 360 and Frankfurt Kurnit.
First published in 1986 and collected in 1987, Watchmen was created by Moore, artist Dave Gibbons and colorist John Higgins. The series was named one of the 100 best novels by Time magazine. Rumors of HBO tackling Watchmen first surfaced in 2015, when the pay cabler noted it was in preliminary discussions for a TV take on the property.
HBO Enlists 'The Leftovers' Helmer Nicole Kassell to Direct Pilot for 'Watchmen' TV Series
She's incredibly good.
She also did a couple of episodes of Rectify, although I doubt even that will convince @Peteyandjia to watch a superhero show.
And she directed this, which had a really uncomfortable story.
9.5/10 well played lol
The show's great and I'm really enjoying it, it's incredibly slick, but let me ask you...
Do you have any idea what's going on?
Of course I know what's going on in Counterpart. J.K. Simmons plays long-lost twin brothers. One is a wuss and the other one is a tough guy who works at the Shaffer Conservatory in New York. The tough guy wants his wuss brother to man up. Then there are the twin sisters. One twin sister is jealous of the other sister’s musical career. It's just your typical family drama.
But the other possible boring and more ridiculous premise of the series is that there are two alternate worlds caused by the inexplicable splintering that happened 30 years ago. Cut to the present, one world looks like ours while the other looks like what would happen if Germany was a super power. A very guarded portal exists that people can cross to each other’s worlds. The public is not aware of the two worlds except for the secret government agencies between the two worlds. The two government agencies have an uneasy but friendly pact. For some unknown reason yet, there’s an assassin named Baldwin from the other side that’s killing off people in our world that's listed in her kill list. Other Side Howard (J.K. Simmons) is trying to stop Baldwin from fulfilling her mission.
As I said, it’s too preposterous. I think my long-lost twins story is the correct version.
This is what fucked me up.
I thought we were supposed to know and I somehow missed it.
Your long-lost twin angle will be the spin off, I'm sure.
Watched The Brave finale. Pretty decent, I hope it gets renewed.
Also watched the finale of Valor, not sure why I even bothered, the writing was pretty shitty.
The Hollywood Reporter's Review of Altered Carbon
Bottom Line: Sci-Fi gold. Ambitous, dense and thrilling, Netflix's new sci-fi epic starring Joel Kinnaman, James Purefoy and Martha Higareda is a binge-worthy potential blockbuster.
If HBO's Game of Thrones was the gold standard of budget, world-building source material and unfettered vision, then the channel's own pricey, stylistic venture, Westworld, was the next iteration .
Altered Carbon is very clearly Netflix's colossus. Based on Richard K. Morgan's 2002 cyberpunk sci-fi novel of the same name, Altered Carbon is a complicated, intriguing, ultraviolent, sex-filled and compelling blast, a visual delight that periodically gets tripped up with its writing but never enough to detour the experience.
Altered Carbon is flawed, but it's also fantastic. This is binge-ready sci-fi for the masses.
Stop. You had me at "sex-filled."
Penny is, and always will be, a complete arse. Nice seeing Marlee Matlin still there too. Best have lots of scenes where Alice has to get undressed this season.
He's definitely taking better jobs than De Niro.
The 'Murican Office without Michael Scott is garbage.
