    The third season of True Detective hasn't started airing yet.

    I know that. A few critics have written reviews.

    Ozarks season one was fantastic (as I'm sure you know). Season 2 was good but not great.

    Holy ****! There is a season 3 of true detective? Well I know what I will be watching after I finish The Good Place

    I thought it was ok but season 1 was so ****ing good that anything else would be a let down.

    Not exaggerating,. I think Matthew mchonahey(?) As rust chole was the best acting I have ever seen in any movie or TV show. Idk if it was the best acting or best character combined with acting and writing or what. All I do know is that I have never enjoyed a character more than rust chole ever. Ever

    Agreed. Similar but much better than bird box. I never thought I could like John krasinski in any role after Jim halpert on the office.
    After watching that I now want to watch jack Ryan to see if he can win me over one more time

    I just finished watching Jack Ryan last night. He's still adorable even in a serious role. I enjoyed the series and hope I can get another 30-day free Amazon Prime deal someday so I can watch Season 2 when it comes out. Emily Blunt is a lucky woman.

    I liked a lot about a quiet place. Welll made and acted but holy Jesus, there were plot details that were so dumb that it essentially ruins the whole movie.

    It’s been a while since I saw it but iirc, my annoyance came with how they kill the creatures.

    Evidently no one could figure them out, not the best military in the world (that’s what always bothers me about these movies)...just some person in the woods. Dumb.

    Bird box was just boring. The whole blindfolded trope got old before you finished the opening sequence. The whole "girl" "boy" thing just came across as dumb instead of emotional. Forced emotional sequences just don't work. And as soon as it became evident that the things can't really hurt you, it devolves from high-concept fantasy to just being afraid of mean people which is pretty much every movie. And on top of that it was very obvious who the"bad" people were right off the bat. They also wasted a perfectly good John malkovich supporting role. I spent most of the last half of the movie playing on my phone.

    Burning

    This was pretty good. Well-acted. Taut and somewhat of a slow burn. Nice use of perspective and focus, beautiful dusk and down shots. And it's really easy, the film guides you to pick apart the metaphors and it has layers of it.

    I haven't made a list but it probably makes top 10 of 2018.

    I was more interested where they are coming from when they hear the sound. Like from under the ground? Trees? do they hide in the bushes? Where the heck are they when not killing sound producing people or racoons?

    You can tell they put a lot of effort into it. Although I felt like it was cut a bit short in the end and it eventually started to get repetitive. But the idea generally worked and kept me entertained.

    Loved American Animals. Loved. About time I see something that feels fresh and original and is also well done. I had zero issue with the the doc-like snippets worked in. In fact, I think it completely enhanced the storytelling.
