Anybody else eagerly awaiting the premiere of 'The Dirt' tomorrow? I will be working until about 2am tonight and I'm tempted to watch it once I'm finished working (if it's available) knowing I will feel like Sh#t all day tomorrow if I do but it will be so worth it!!!!!! :):eek::D:rolleyes:o_O :emoji_metal:

Anyone know what time zone Netflix premieres are released on?
I wasn't a hair-band fan back in the day, so I can take or leave The Dirt. It looks interesting but I have no sense of relation to it.

As someone who was heavily into the music/rock/club scene at the time, I loved it.

Not nearly as well produced as 'Bohemian Rhapsody', but given budgeting constraints (it does look more like a made for TV

production than a Hollywood movie), I thought this was more entertaining and relevant to me.

Now I have to re-watch it on my 65" LED TV with surround sound. [rockon]

I enjoyed it as well. Thought they did an incredible job of making almost everything look period correct for the budget they had to work with. They included stuff from the book that I never thought would have made it in like the David Lee Roth scene. But they also left some things out that I thought there was no way would get left out. Biggest omission imo being Tommy in prison. They did a good job of showing the shit the other 3 had to deal with and not addressing Tommy's prison time was a huge omission. Had one minor nit to pick about one of Mick's guitars not being period correct but it's really minor and I bet most people familiar with guitars will not notice it. Definitely going to watch it again.

Longmire it takes 6 or 7 episodes that really starts to get good.
Very true.

At first they seemed like individual episodes without a lot in common and then they really got going on a story line.

It carries a good story line all the way through to the end.

The other thing is that all the characters had likeable qualities. Even the bad guys.

I really liked that.

Weapon of Choice... not sure if it’s been brought up yet. It’s a documentary on Netflix.

It’s about Glock firearms and it’s social impact on society. Talks about its use by everyone from the police to gang bangers. Also talked a bit about the murder attempt on Gaston Glock. Some pro and some anti talk. Overall I thought it was pretty interesting.

I'm 1 episode away from ending Hap & Leonard Season 3. Damn. It's only 6 episodes a season. Michael K Williams is a big fav of mine. Season 3 seems to be better than the other 2 even.

Every time I watch I realize how well written this show is. Williams is great. The other guy - looks too much like Mel Gibson but is a good actor as well.

It's gotten SO little press being on Sundance for 3 years. (Which is an AMC product. So you AMC series fans. . . . ) For 18 40-min episodes, it's a great take.

The dirt was the worst acted poorest directed piece of shit on Netflix. Did I love Motley Crue? Yup! Saw them a pile of times and got a kick out of the stories of the debauchery but that movie was just piss poor.
Freebeer and Hotwings were talking about that the other morning. I haven't really paid much attention to aging 80's rock stars, but holy shit have you seen or heard Vince Neil in whatever live performance video is going around? WTFuuuuuuuuuuck you can't even understand the lyrics and the guy looks like he's about to die.

I saw that Vince Neil vid. It was so bad I’m not even sure it’s real.

Vince always was the weak link in the band. He was hired more for his looks than his voice. Even when he was thin he was out of shape. He couldn't run from one side of a stage to the other without having to clip or skip words. Motley Crue was maybe the first band to experiment with tuning down a whole step which made their sound way more heavy but I'm 100% positive they didn't do it for this reason. I think they did it to compensate for Vince's limited vocal range.

I really enjoyed all 3 seasons. Disappointed there are no plans for a fourth.

Trying to wrap up Hemlock Grove now so I can start season 2 of The OA.

Just started watching "The Unit" on Amazon Prime. I don't remember the guy from Allstate commercials being on a TV show about elite/secret Army Rangers when the series ran on TV
I enjoyed the first couple seasons when it was on. As I recall the final season got a little silly (think '24' type plots) as I re-call. Probably got cancelled at the perfect time before it really slid downhill. It's also pretty impressive how just about every main cast member on that show seems to get a ton of work. Someone from that show is always popping up on other shows or movies.

This exactly. First two seasons were great. It then when downhill and became just dumb. It seems a lot of shows in the quest for character development just turn into soap operas.

Liked The Dirt a lot. No idea how they are still alive.....

Umbrella Academy was good, but not great. Enjoyed Sex Education a ton - really well written humor and acting. Watching Catastrophe on Prime and tons of laugh out loud moments.

My big complaint, especially with Netflix, is the horrible job they do on the TV apps telling us what new content is being released. I bet Disney will do a better job promoting upcoming content when they release their streaming service.

I watched The Highwaymen last night. That was pretty good. You will enjoy the scene when Kevin Costner goes shopping for guns.
I started watching it. The modern terminology doesn't match up. I could forgive the steel T-posts, but the 5 gallon plastic bucket for pouring molds was just a little too anachronistic for 1934.

edit: Oh, and the plastic shotgun hulls. Not in 1934.

(This is why I'm no fun to watch any movie that involves military history or firearms. Except for Saving Private Ryan.)

Just watched The Silence and the first episode of Black Summer.

Don't do that.

The Silence (flying creatures) had Stanley Tucci and Miranda Otto in it but fell flat. Just bad writing and a weak premise but some of you might like it, who knows.

Black Summer (zombies) substituted good writing for people running around like idiots, stopping only to act like idiots. To my dismay, the Asian chick with the bobble head and gaping maw is still alive. It did have a few surprise moments which...,surprised me. I may give the next episode a watch. I may also regret doing that.

Netflix needs to hire adult writers with some clue as to how humans act and react to one another.

Recently binge watched The OA 2nd season. I got hooked on the first season... It's a bit weird, but I can't stop watching it.
Oh, that show can f*** right off.

Just finished Jericho which I liked a lot, Travelers is pretty good, as are Santa Clarita diet, Meat Eater, Altered Carbon, Dark Matter, and of course Five Came Back.
