We watched Mowgli last night - definitely darker than the Disney version (which is a good thing, IMO), but the animals' faces were off-putting and just...odd. I wish they hadn't tried to make them so human-looking, it didn't work.
Interesting thriller/drama type movie on there called 'Cam' about a web cam performer, but there's more of a message involved behind it than the typical film of this nature. The story was done by a former web cam model.
The new season of Travelers was SO good, even though I bawled my eyes out through several episodes!
The new little Christmas episode of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was fun. I'm looking forward to season 2!
I was happy to hear they'd renewed Dave Letterman's show. I enjoy watching him talk to people he WANTS to talk to!
Has anyone watched the Christmas episodes of Nailed It! yet? I'm holding off so I can watch them with my mom when I'm visiting my folks for Christmas.
I enjoyed them, maybe even a little more than the regular Nailed It! The last one is a crafting comp instead of baking...I sort of wish they'd do a spin off like that, the crafts could be fun to watch.
Loved the Christmas episode of Sabrina, too. I think I read that they were approved for 16 more episodes - yay!
I watched Sabrina as soon as they put it up.. I like that show far more than I really should IMO, lol. Same with Riverdale. I know that Sabrina got a renewal for seasons 3 and 4.. I was happy. I just hate the wait, oy!
I am in a DC binge mood lately.. Just finished the Flash and now I am going on to Arrow. I like the shows, and I am not a HUGE DC comics fan (more of a Marvel girl) but they are fun, toooo many crossovers however.
Alan Arkin and Michael Douglas are perfect in this show about an aging actor/acting coach and his likewise aging manager navigating their lives in Hollywood which, let’s face it... values youth. The script handles everyday realities about aging that those of us in or close to that generation will or are already navigating. The writing is wonderful and the lines are often both poignant and hilarious!!..I love dry , quick wit, and this gem has plenty of it...
I kind of like it. It is a preview and it does end after one scene. What I had with my new Roku streaming stick was audio announcements of each piece and that drove me nuts. I finally figured out how to stop it in the settings menu.
Also if you flip quickly without hesitating, the preview won't play.

Travelers - season 3 - wasn't expecting the direction they took in the beginning of the season but OK then sort of though it would be a certain way then POW ... kinda didn't see that coming and WOW really didn't see that coming and can't wait for season 4.
The "choose your own adventure" style movie for the series Black Mirror is going to be released tomorrow! I'm sad we won't get Season 6 until 2019 but this is great; I've always loved "choose your own adventure" books, and you can always rewatch, pick different scenarios and get a different movie based on what you pick.
Watched Black Mirror's Bandersnatch and it was one heck of a ride, but prolly because I picked the worst scenarios. I got a bunch of different endings, and it even goes back in the movie after certain endings and allows you to take paths not taken before. It was fun!
