The new Lord of the Rings show- I kept falling asleep during the first episode so I gave up.

She-Hulk- There I things I love about it and things I hate about it. She-Hulk herself and most of the cast have been great. I wish the overall writing was much better.

Bullet Train- Really good movie. Definitely a little too long though.

Thor: Love and Thunder- I enjoyed it but it should have been a lot more serious. They tried to make it too much like Ragnorok. The problem is that Thors recent story arc doesn’t lend itself to comedy and the 2 main overall stories of Thor L&T are way too serious to make it a comedy movie. A little bit of funny stuff is good to lighten the mood but this was a little too much. They over did it with Guns N’ Roses music too… as much as I love G’NR. Still a good movie though, as critical as I am. I just think it could have been a lot better.

Felt the same way about the first 1.5 episodes of Rings of Power, then it picks up. I'm enjoying it. House of the Dragons is awesome. There have been some plot points that haven't made sense, but they're easy to overlook because the highs have been so ridiculously good. My favorite character is Daemon and I'm not sure what that says about me as a person I've been rewatching the documentary on Adnan Syed that's on HBO max after his release. I listened to Serial years ago and I still wasn't completely convinced of his innocence. I am convinced that there was blatant incompetence by law enforcement during the investigation. I thought Love and Thunder is a perfect example of what can happen when you give a director too much power. There's a good movie somewhere in there, but I think Taika needed to be reigned in.

I am guilty about Daemon too. Maybe it is just the performance in general.

I think with Love and Thunder, they went back to the Ragnorak well, which was the wrong move. It worked for Ragnorak but that doesn’t work here.

They f’ed over the Gorr character too. I was hoping to walk out having him as my favorite all time villain. He had that much potential.

BigDaddy and Allanfan, confirmed psychopaths.

Not that we didn’t already suspect.

BTW, Crabfeeder is clearly the best character.

I have no excuses. He was my favorite character in a Rogue Prince and Fire and Blood. Involved in one of the most awesome dragon battles in the ASOIF universe. I will add that even tho the books painted him as an a-hole, the show ramps it up even more. I didn't think Dr. Who could pull it off.
