Revisited Amelie. Such a charming movie.

According to some leftist luminaries around here, it was a petainist movie.  :lmfao:

I was confused by that scene where she starts chanting "famille, travail, patrie"

Is that the Director's Cut, a US-only feature for the upcoming UHD Criterion release?  :P

Been watching Youtube clips of Chernobyl.  Very entertaining, very well made.
I'm up $25 on DGuller.

So good, so so good.

How does it compare with Tour the Pharmacy or 7 days in Hell?

I thought the most recent episode of Chernobly (ep 4) was good. The pet-hunting was a bit of a diversion from the regular story.
One thing I'm realizing though...fuck we're lucky the whole planet isn't a waste heap. Things could have gotten so much worse there.

Brother from Another Planet (1984)

Wildly uneven indie film that varies between a Saturday Night Live skit and one of the grittier Blaxploitation films (and, like any good "Police Academy" movie, it has a dozen scenes that could be shown in any order without changing the plot.)  Still it has its moments.  The film is about a mute dark skinned human-looking slave who crashes in New York and flees to Harlem; where he deals with social services, junkies, barflies, nightclub owners and America's zany race relations.  Meanwhile two slave catchers (who seem to be based on a cross between the Cone Heads and Dragnet; possibly an inspiration for Dan Aykroyd's Joe Friday) are in pursuit.  Hilarity and revenge killing ensue.
In Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace—and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock

Yeah the pet-hunting got too much space I think. The series is definitely very good though.

I do not know. I had never heard of Lonely Island before Netflix pop the latest offering in my recommendations.

Deadwood: the Movie. I had no idea Anna Gunn was in the cast.

Also saw a show called Barry on HBO. Hit man decides to quit and become an actor. Best part is the Chechen mob boss.

First episode of Good Omens. Good start, capturing the book very well. :)

I knew Bullock had a wife, but yeah when I was watching breaking bad, I never made that connection

Barry is great. Haven't caught up with season 2 though, too busy...

I really want to watch the Deadwood movie, but I feel like I should rewatch the entire show first (it was long ago...) and that won't happen anytime soon...

I started to watch Season 3 again, got about half way through and stopped.
