  1. Ross Butler (Reggie) is leaving the show. This is, to my knowledge, the second re-cast (Dilton is played by different actors in the pilot and in subsequent appearances). It's a shame, because Butler brings a tremendous amount of charm to what could have been a one-note character. Given how good the show has been at casting, I guess we should expect them to find a suitable replacement--but I'm still disappointed. Related: this seems related to the second season of 13 Reasons Why, which I haven't seen but which has had people in my timeline running around in a tizzy. So I guess I should see it.
  2. Well, I was going to. But then I popped the disc in and discovered that Netflix had sent me a broken one. So it'll be a couple of days.
  3. The finale wasn't too shoddy. I'm going to stick by my assertion that Bates Motel doesn't have the courage of its own perversity, but perhaps that can be a good thing; certainly the closing confrontation was tremendously moving, even without the cosmic-level stuff that made the Hannibal finale (similar in some respects) stand out. Bates Motel, at its best, has always been a much smaller-scale show than Hannibal, anyway. More later, perhaps.
  4. I finally got my DVD in, so I'll be catching this sometime this weekend.
  5. Ok, I'm not so cynical yet. This is promising.
  6. Same.
  7. Title: Barton Fink Director: Joel and Ethan Coen Year: 1991 Language: English IMDB Link Link to the A&F thread on the film
  8. Right there with you. I nominated a few movies that I think play with the idea of waking or conversion in interesting ways, but the basic theme is looking at once to be too limiting and not limiting enough. On the other hand, I'm a firm believer that the meaning of everything--lists included--is found in the process of construction, so I'm hopeful that as the list takes shape we'll get a better idea what we mean.
  9. This looks like one I'll have to ship in on DVD from Netflix, but I'm looking forward to checking it out.
  10. Seconded, though not without reservations.
  11. The Matrix just strikes me as a movie that thinks it's smarter than it is. On them other hand, it deserves consideration and debate, so I'm going to second it.
  12. Is there any way we can get this list pinned like previous lists?
