Not going to buy new ones just for Netflix. Not going to replace tvs with built in NF just for NF use. Customer Service guy goes you could use a Amazon firestick..... really?

Yea.. My BR player stopped supporting Hulu.. Still supports Netflix, Vudu, and Prime..

We also have a firestick.. bought it jailbroke it, but i've since restored it to factory conditions.. You can usually find those cheap and you can keep those updated easier.

--Just wanted to watch it. I liked it a lot better than their first one.

Gotham S5 / NF
--FINALLY it hits NF. Man, this thing is interesting. I got about 6 episodes to go till I'm done.

Paycheck/DVD
--I liked it.

Batman / BR
--Gearing up on Joker movies before Joker.

The Dark Knight/BR
--same as above

Joker/ Theater
--This movie is on a completely different level of psychology of the Joker than any other incarnation I can think of. Part Jack Nicholson, part Heath Ledger, and honestly, part that guy doing Joker on Gotham. I really liked it and I really was into how dark and down the line it went into the formation of Joker's attitude towards the world.

Rambo Last Blood / Theater
--This movie was a mixed bag IMO. Story was ok but it left out a lot of connecting points. Some real odd lack of exposition for some of the relationships. And then why would Rambo build a series of tunnels underground in his yard. The PTSD angle, the human trafficking angle, and to some degree the border crossing angle were good building blocks for a movie but somehow this movie just didn't connect like the last one did for me. For the series, I put 3 and 5 at the bottom. 1 and 2 are still tops to me. 4 was a pretty legit movie. All of that said, if you want that R Rated Rambo action then this movie will satisfy you.

Saw the Joker as well and boy was it dark and gritty. The grittiness reminded me a lot of movies like A Clockwork Orange and Taxi Driver. If those movies are your thing you'll like this version of The Joker.

I'm with you on the A Clockwork Orange and Taxi Driver vibes.... I might would even throw in Insomnia.

RE: The movie thread
Gotham S5 / NF
--IT FINALLY CAME UP! A very interesting series finale. I really liked what they did with the series and I liked who played all the major players and I like some of the depth it offered. I thought their Bane was a little off but at least he was nowhere near that travesty from Batman and Robin. I think it was a smart move to go Jim Gordon focused but I thought the Barbara/Lea thing was a bit overdone. If I come across a great price I might add this to my physical collection of super hero stuff.

Halloween 1-5 / dvd
--Its that time of the year. I actually do like 1,2,4, and 5 as a continuation of the core story. #3, while the odd man out, I do kind of like for its uniqueness. I'll probably do the next wave which is H2O- ??? the one before Rob Zombies remakes soon. I think next wave was kind of hit and miss and did in some ways feel like lets milk it. Zombie's two weren't bad but also, didn't have the vibe, that the first two had. The latest one was kind of interesting, I just don't own it yet.

Sleepy Hollow/dvd
--One of Depp's better efforts IMO. The humor, the action, and Halloween aspect of it hit a lot of marks with me.

Compulsion/NF
--A really weird movie that feels like its inspiration was Eyes Wide Shut.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance / NF
--I got about 4 episodes left but I like what they have done with it so far. Makes me want to re-watch the original movie to freshen up on some details though. I do like the depth in the story this one is going for though.

Harry Potter The Order of the Phoenix / BR
--Nothing like HP movies during October LOL.

RE: The movie thread
Went and saw Gemini Man last weekend and I actually liked it, despite what most of the experts had to say about it. The action scenes were very good and the plot twist at the end was unexpected.
