    Just rewatched Star Trek Beyond. Its still a great. It sucks that the movie part of the franchise seems to have died off right after they finally produced a good film.

    From what I read, its Paramount's own fault for not realizing that Chris Hemsworth has become a big star as Thor since his cameo in the '09 reboot and Chris Pine has become a star in his own right with Wonder Woman, Hell or High Water, and Into the Spider-Verse. They have become bigger names, and should get bigger paychecks for their work, and having them should draw more interest to the Star Trek franchise.

    Though I think all three of the nuTrek films are pretty good, Beyond was fun to watch, as well, and even had a bit of detail I missed the first few times I watched it concerning the bad guys.

    Up to the sixth episode, 'Funhouse Mirrors', of Marvel's Cloak & Dagger via Hulu.

    American Gods.


    What a fantastic episode! Ananzi's speech was brilliant, and the beginning -- with the story of the tech genius whose Dad wanted him to be a musician, not a computer programmer.

    Just brilliantly done.

    We have low standards for what qualifies as 'good film' now-a-days. :D

    I know where I'm saying this but I think Star Trek needs to take a long break, kind of like Doctor Who did for 15 years (?). Maybe then they can figure out all the legal bullshit.

    Yeah. As much as I like Hemsworth as Thor, he didn't need to come back as George Kirk. Paramont should have just scrapped that script/script idea and went with a film that didn't require a guest star that would require a huge paycheck, then they could have easily had Pine even with a pay raise. Instead, we're just not getting another film. Not wanting to drop a stupid story idea is a really stupid reason for a movie series to die. It didn't help that, from what I've read, Beyond's terrible marketing combined with into Darkness not being recieved well hurt its box office, which probably made another sequel less appealing anyway :sigh:

    Anyway, on to what i'm watching, I've been rewatching Lost Season 1 because I want to watch the whole show (I dropped it after season 1 last time I tried). I'm enjoying it well enough, but am I the only one who doesn't care for most of the flashbacks? They're fine for the characters I really like, but when its a character I don't care about or actively dislike, like Sawyer, I usually just space out, do something else or even skip ahead. They have their place, but sometimes the flashbacks can really drag down an episode.

    I went out to Dallas to watch the first two episodes of Marvel's Cloak & Dagger second season at the Alamo Drafthouse - Lake Highlands.

    Last year, the event was two weeks before the series aired, I went to the Alamo Drafthouse in Houston for that. This year, it was just two days. Still, worth it. Enjoy that show quite a bit, and I bounced around downtown Dallas for a few hours this afternoon, being stupid tourist.

    Just finished watching Hanna on AmazonPrime. I thought it was quite good; decent story, good writing and excellent acting/cast and very good production values. I highly recommend it. At only 8 episodes, not a huge time investment.

    I've got Hanna queued up, but there's a couple of other things on the list first.

    For tonight, it's Flash and catching up with Counterpart.

    Discovery at the moment, then Brooklyn Nine-Nine on catchup.

    Tomorrow, Shazam (3d) at the dinema, and then probably make a start on the second season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
