    ^ If it's considered too "little", they're just pandering to a base; if it's considered too "much", they've got an agenda. You can't win either way and taking a militant "all or nothing" approach...

    Re: What Are You Watching?

    It doesn't though. It's all just surface level to get the plot moving - much like the gimmickry that is in S2. If you like that "schtick", you're better off watching Nolan's earlier work, Person of...

    SPOILERS AHEAD FOR WESTWORLD SEASON 3



    I agree with this assessment. Season 2 tried to recreate Season 1's sense of gimmickry and plot devices more for the sake of doing so rather than as the...

    Re: What Are You Watching?

    Yeah, so... this season of Westworld is kinda crappy. Got one episode to go but it's really starting to get derivative. Semi-spoilers ahead.

    The new sci-fi development of it are interesting but...

    Man, I'm trying not to get too excited by the upcoming Dune movie. Quietly optimistic but ready to be disappointed feels about right.

    Best movie he's made by far. It's perhaps the only movie where a human antagonist/villain (Vidal) feels legitimately more terrifying and evil than the monster(s).

    Re: What Are You Watching?

    Ah, movie logic! The novels don't really specify or explain the battles/fighting in any great detail, so most of the "action" you see in the film is stuff they made up. It's kind of on par with the...
