    just finished part 2 and while not as good as part 1 it keeps the story moving well enough. But there are alot of silly parts in part 2 that are way overboard.

    Now I have to wait til whenev the hell Netflix wants to release the next parts.

    Waching it as i type this, i like it so far. That poem was deep AF.

    "Imma knock you out to sunday and wait for you on tuesday" LMFAO! Great line

    "If i fuck up my pants im gonna kill you twice"

    Gotta stop quoting it, but that was was awesome.

    Oh it involves hip hop???

    That's the Devils music. I can't watch that.


    Honestly though I saw this and was interested in watching it. Perhaps I'll give it a shot now.

    Looks pretty cool

    I watched the first ep last night and thought it was one of the most original things I've seen in a long time. If it can maintain that level of quality, it should be a good watch.

    Damn, no shit. Baz is in the house on this one? I had no idea.

    He's an interesting filmmaker, but he's also kind of hit and miss. I really liked Romeo + Juliet, for instance, but I could've done without Moulin Rouge or The Great Gatsby.

    To be fair, I have never liked the Great Gatsby story regardless of what form it took though so he was already having to come from behind on that one.

    I loved Moulin Rouge, although the sheen has worn off through repeat viewings.

    Didn't bother with The Great Gatsby.

    I tried to re-watch Moulin a couple of years ago. I figured I'd give it another shot since I hadn't seen it since catching it in the theater when it was originally released. I still didn't get into it.

    Maybe in another 10 years I'll try again.
