This is just another quick post about what I’ve been watching lately. I’ve been trucking right through a bunch of stuff on Netflix. I caught up on two series and started some others. So here’s a quick list up my recent Netflix history:
I finally finished the last few episodes I had of Netflix’s Daredevil series. I absolutely loved this version of Daredevil (much better than the early 2000s Ben Affleck movie). It was very brutal, which is quite different from the more lighthearted MCU films. There were so many cringe worthy and uncomfortable moments of violence. I think the most intense was a scene where a guy gets his head bashed in by a car door, I think I yelled ‘oh shit’ a few times during it while freaking out (this coming from a horror fan, go figure). I would very much recommend this series and I’m really excited for season 2. Read More »
I don’t even know where to begin. I was browsing recommendations on Netflix last night and found a movie called Parallels. It sounded pretty interesting and since my cable was out due to a storm, I figured I’d watch it. Parallels is about two siblings, Ronan and Beatrix, who each receive a message from their father, Alex, to return home. They discover that he’s not there and find a bag with a weird device and some odd newspaper clippings. Joined by their friend Harry, they go to the address that was in the message and find an abandoned building. Turns out the building is a machine that can transport them to different versions of Earth, all co-existing simultaneously. Using the building they must find their father and figure out what’s going on. Sounds pretty interesting right? I thought so, but I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I would recommend giving this movie a watch if you haven’t already. There will be minor spoilers ahead but I’ll try not to give anything major away. Read More »
Ah the ’80s! A time when one man could purchase an armory of weapons with no questions asked and your hair was a suitable replacement for a motorcycle helmet. I’m so happy that I found The Terminator on Netflix. I’ve seen the movie plenty of times before on TV, but this was the first time I’ve sat through it beginning to end uncut. Watching this again made me realize that I remember Terminator 2: Judgement Day much better than the original, so there was a decent bit of it that I didn’t recall too well (it’s also been quite a while). My memories of the Terminator movies aside, I guess the real question is: Does it still hold up? I say, hell yea it does!Read More »
I’m not that experienced with Twitter, until now I’ve mainly used it as a chaotic and confusing news feed for a bunch of things. But I figured I’d make one to go with this blog for the hell of it. There have been a couple of times I’ve thought of something to put on here but wasn’t at home and trying to write a post on my phone sucked. So this way I can share random bits of movie news and other stupid thoughts I have wherever I am! So if you feel so inclined, you can follow me Follow @mindless_static! That’s all for now but I should have a post tomorrow with my thoughts on a classic movie that I happened to discover is on Netflix.
Since I didn’t really have anything planned to post this week I figured I’d just talk about some movies I’m looking forward to. I’ve been really wanting to see Inside Out but at the same time I don’t feel it’s a movie I need to see at the big theater (not to mention for Regal’s prices), even though I’ve been hearing great things about it. I’m hoping our small, local movie theater gets it soon. I also hope I can get someone to see it with me because I don’t like being that guy that goes to a movie by himself lol. While I was looking up what movies are currently playing there, I actually stumbled upon something awesome.Read More »
So I recently watched Nightcrawler on Netflix. I’ve been wanting to see this movie since it came out last year so I was happy to see it added to Netflix this month. Now that I’ve seen it, I don’t even know where to begin in talking about it. I guess I’ll start off by saying whether I liked it or not since there will be spoilers later on. I did enjoy the movie, and I would recommend it. It was well acted, with an especially great performance by Jake Gyllenhaal. It was a great thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat. If you have any interest in watching this movie, you should stop reading here and go watch it first. I can’t say much more without getting into spoilers.
I thought I would take a moment and just talk about stuff that I’ve been watching lately. This is just a quick post, nothing very in-depth, about what I’ve been watching on TV, Netflix, etc. So here’s the rundown of the random stuff I’ve been watching this week:
