Recently DVRed Wristcutters: A Love Story, a movie about a guy who commits suicide, wakes up in limbo, which is a crapsack wasteland of where he lived and is populated solely by other suicide victims. He goes on a road quest to find his girlfriend who he learns also committed suicide, but is derailed by a quirky girl looking for the people in charge because she shouldn't be there because she didn't commit suicide. Distinct characters, some familiar faces ala Kubiak from Parker Lewis Cant Lose, and an engaging story.

I've been on a kick of ripping DVD's, which has been making it more convenient for me to watch all my old childhood favorites: Highlander, Beastmaster, the Mad Max series (I am hopeful yet fearful of what they'll do with Fury Road), Blade Runner, etc.

For s**ts, giggles, and a little bit of 90's nostalgia, I bought, ripped, and am also rewatching the entire 5 seasons of Renegade.



Man, shows were so naive back then. Hmm... that reminds me... I don't think I ever finished the Highlander TV series...

Oh, I'm also leisurely making my way through Moribito. I very rarely watch anime, but this one is pretty enjoyable.

Outland Theatrical Trailer


Been awhile since I watched Outland. (Before today, that is.) Seems to me it's held up pretty well over time.

Reign of Fire...again.

Always loved this movie. I know many don't. Nice pre-super-fame performances by mconnaughey and bale.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Stop whatever your doing and go see Interstellar. Despite whatever heated scientific quantum debate you engage in with yourself and your friends after seeing it, you'll still love it!!

About halfway through season 1 of Marco Polo on Netflix. Very interesting show.

Also, on PA's recommendation, watching Galavant, which seems to me to be an interesting and fun experiment by the network.

It may be time to just rename this, "What are you watching?" :)

The Blob (1988) - oozy goodness, inspiration for the Downington Spheres

2012 - John Cusack's disaster porn flick. I still want to do something with the arks from the end of the movie, but the seeds won't sprout.

The Day After Tomorrow - watched while it was snowing. Wife protested as she felt this was a bad movie choice considering the weather.

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines - Possibly the worst movie in the franchise, wasting the potential for a hybrid liquid/solid frame terminator, the first female terminator, and the acting talents of Kristina Loken.

Borgias - Both the series with Jeremy Irons as Rodrigo Borgia, as well as the one with John Doman as Rodrigo. Both series are beyond excellent, with the Irons version focusing on strategy and international events, while the Doman one focusing more on the insane intrigue the Borgias created.

Teen Wolf - After a comment, I think it was by val, I started watching Teen Wolf. It is quite good for a high school werewolf series. Way better than the Vampire Diaries or Twilight.

During my recent fugue I found the series Graceland about FBI/DEA/etc in the same house doing undercover. Very witty (like Suits and Psyche which are other of my favorite shows in the witty banter vein). First season was great, second season got a bit cheesy and made you hate the main characters. So watch one season and let it go, second season won't give you the answers you might want. First season ending was pretty good all said.

Caught up with Walking Dead. Interested in how this new community will try and kill them.

Watched HBOs Carnivale. You have to realize, the last week I was in a feverish haze for most the time. Balancing sweat and delirium. I think Carnivale was probably the best show I could ever choose to watch in this state. What a messed up experience that was. Often I would fall asleep during episodes and have twisted carnival dreams. The supernatural fight of good and evil spread into my subconscious. It was an intense experience and, while more seasons would be good, I am actually satisfied with the way it ended. So not sure how it would be sober and awake, but on the edge of consciousnesses, it was great.
