Lovecraft Country Blends Pulpy Horror and Family Drama Into a Story About America's Demons

From creators Misha Green  & Jordan Peele. If this is as good as Jordan Peele's movie US was I'll be there for the ride.
Aug 07 4:20pm @2 The official trailer.
Aug 07 2:12pm @1 I've been waiting since they announced this project to see how it turns out. Obviously I'm less enthused with the family drama than the monster drama. With it being done on HBO I'm certain the...

Aug 07 11:44am @8.1.1 "..." Maybe. The NRA only has 5 million subscribers and has been losing money since the election of Trump. This might get more people to donate, but I'd not bet on it. As long as Lapierre is...
Aug 06 2:44pm @8 "..." Sounds like they think they have a case. If found guilty then the group should be held accountable. If not then things will go as they normally do. I've been loosely following the in...

The first episode was released today and I just watched it a little while ago. It certainly wasn't normal Trek, but then again, it wasn't supposed to be. It's supposed to be a comedy, but the only parts that actually made me laugh were the opening scene and the title sequence. The part where Mariner was trying to say bat'leth but could only say "bat um, bat uh, bat..." made me...
Aug 07 10:02am @3 I refuse to get CBS All Access or Peacock so I won't be watching it unless my gf's brother buys it on disk later.

Aug 07 9:32am @13 I new edit on a photo taken 4 years ago today.
Aug 06 5:00pm @4.1.1 Great story Raven Wing. I would love to see the habitat. If I ever get a "fish room" I'm getting a turtle. I had a red tailed boa before my son was born. She got pneumonia once and we had to give...
Aug 06 12:12pm @4 Getting things together for a new project... my first riparium. Think shoreline or riverbank. I still have no idea how this will turn out. LOL!

Because, yeah, why not zombie cicadas?
Aug 07 9:20am @2 "..." I'm sure somewhere some Hollywood writer or producer is thinking this is a great idea for a new B horror movie. 
Aug 07 9:04am @1 Nature is weird, cruel and unforgiving.

Well, it wasn't exactly a picnic, but it was following a really nice day before the storm hit. There wasn't a lot of rain, but a ton of wind. Wind like I have never seen before. I heard 6 bangs in the not too distance and then nothing. And when I mean nothing I mean nothing. No power, no water (I have well water which needs a pump), no cable and no cell. Our tower was hit as were other...
Aug 07 9:10am @15 Glad to hear every one is safe and hope you get it all back up and running soon.

After a great war destroyed the Earth a group of children are raised by a robot on a new planet. What can go wrong? This new series on HBO Max is created by Ridley Scott who also directed the first two of this 10 episode series beginning on September 3rd. 
Aug 06 4:27pm @3.2.7 "..." I have a 36" Visio soundbar in the bedroom that sounds great, but at low volumes the background music drowns out anyone speaking. 
Aug 06 2:32pm @4.1 Hi Buzz. That is one interpretation of the phrase, though it usually means uncivilized and without manners. It will be interesting to see where this series goes. I think it might be interpreted...
Aug 06 9:30am @1.1.1 Yeah... I had to grab my old Apple TV box I use at the office to setup for HBO Max because Roku and HBO still don't have a deal in place.
Aug 05 5:10pm @3.2.2 Very nice... I heard those SONOS systems sound great!
Aug 05 4:24pm @3.2 Nice! A 65" TV maybe too big for the space I have in my living rm.
Aug 05 3:42pm @2.1 I hear Guillermo del Toro's new move Antlers is inspired by the Wendigo spirit.
Aug 05 3:04pm @1 I'm sure I'll be seeing this.

Are you ready for feature films to be released on streaming platforms because they can't get a wide theatrical release? I don't know if I am or not, but Disney is going to test the waters here with Mulan.
Aug 05 3:31pm @3.2.3 "..." I have a new 7.2 surround sound Dolby Digital 4K Ultra HD home theater receiver. Yeah... I know, I know. My gf already told me I was wasting my money, but she still uses it as much as I do....
Aug 05 3:24pm @4.1.6 "..." Yes. How long can they keep pushing back theatrical releases?  "..." I didn't think it was horrible. It was pretty unforgettable.  I did kind of want to see this live action Mulan...
Aug 05 2:29pm @3.2.1 I love going to summer blockbuster movies at the theater. It's one of those things I miss during this Covid close down. Yes, it's runs me somewhere aroun $35 a trip if we get snacks and I almost...
Aug 05 2:24pm @5.1.3 "..." Hahaha. I have all the DVDs. 
Aug 05 1:59pm @4.1.4 "..." It's around $9 per person here for matinee. Factoring the snacks and stuff I'd probably be saving money. Still, it's Mulan.
Aug 05 1:55pm @5.1 Hi Mark. I use a Roku TV in my living room and a Roku Ultra up in the bedroom.
Aug 05 1:48pm @4.1.3 "..." It is if they want to see the movie. 
Aug 05 12:53pm @3.1 The price is well, gouging. It's a $200M movie that hasn't released in theaters. "..." Netflix lost money on those movies. It's not a sustainable business model. "..." Tom Hanks wasn't...
Aug 05 12:50pm @4.1 "..." I'd be paying nearly the same price to go to a theater to watch it once. Then I'd have to wait for it to drop on the service OR pay another $20 to pick it up on BluRay. Considering it's a...
Aug 05 12:26pm @2.1 I believe I saw Flubber the Herbie movies listed there. I probably wouldn't have signed up if I didn't get 1 year free with Verizon. The Mandalorian was a pretty damned good series. 
Aug 05 12:15pm @1 "..." I would consider dropping $29.99 if I got perpetual digital viewing rights to the right movie. I don't know if Mulan is the right one for me though.

The Magic 8-ball also has Biden beating Trump...
Aug 05 2:22pm @3.1 I just watch the numbers and Biden's numbers (where they count the most) are stronger than Clinton's were at this time in 2016. Where Clinton was trending down by this time Biden's numbers seem to...

Joe Biden's Big-Tent Strategy Seems to Be Working


Via: Nerm_L  •  234 comments  •  15 hours ago
Joe Biden is not Trump.  That's the only thing the broad electorate really cares about.  No one is paying attention to Joe Biden.  The country may experience buyer's remorse when Trump is gone.  Democrats have created a mine field that will be difficult to negotiate after President Joe has taken the oath. All the political analysis is just so much hot air.  At this point nobody cares what...
Aug 05 2:15pm @2.2.7 "..." You're preaching to the choir here. The issue at hand isn't how to govern nor what the majority want, it's keeping the wings at bay. If you get down to it, the majority really don't give a...
Aug 05 1:02pm @2.2.6 It seems to me that not being Trump is working just fine for Biden for now. 
Aug 05 11:58am @2.2.2 "..." I hadn't heard that, but it wouldn't surprise me. That may play into this VP pick if true. "..." Correct. They are just as much populists as the current bag of crap. I noticed that Cori...
Aug 05 11:48am @6.1 "..." Seems you already have.
Aug 05 11:43am @2.2 It's true most of the Democrats polled say they are electing Biden not because they like him, but because they think he's the best way to get rid of Trump. The moderates and progressives in the...

For those of you that watched Season 1 - Season 2 drops on Friday. For those of you that didn't watch Season 1 what are you waiting for? The series is based on the graphic novels of the same name and follows seven siblings who were all born at the same time and on the same day to mothers with no sign of pregnancy and were later adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves...
Aug 05 10:29am @10.1.11 "..." It aught to keep you busy for a few weeks. I'm waiting for season 5 to drop.
Aug 04 2:18pm @10.1.6 I think I heard The Scarlet Witch and Vision show will be on Disney + this fall as scheduled, but almost everything else is still being pushed back to sometime next year. I still need to watch...
Aug 04 10:01am @10.1.1 I finished last night. A lot going on there in that last episode and a lot of potential for a 3rd season.
Aug 03 10:08am @10 Watched 9 episodes over the weekend. Diago's obsession with JFK was getting a little annoying, but overall I liked the season. I'm hoping I get time tonight to watch that last episode.

The true nature of these people is revealed.  Taking down western culture and Christian values has been these fascists goals all along.  And they burned American flags right along with those Holy Bibles.  These people will take us back to the 1930’s if we let them.  
Aug 04 2:30pm @5.1.18 "..." The incorrect use of Marxism, Socialism and Communism interchangeability is depressing since it's used as a pejorative. Even after it's been explained time and time again. It would be so...
