Seriously fucking yolo

Trevor travels through time, but he can't control it. Every few minute he travels one year ahead. A bit hard explaining it to your wife and the daughter you didn't know you had. An Australian romantic comedy with a serious undertone gnaws the old Groudhog Day (1993) bone, rather nicely at that but used all its ammo in the first 30 minutes.

Moomins don't dance

It's like Dome Karukoski's Tolkien (2019). A biobic of an artist. I'm not familiar with the works of Tove Jansson - moomins in particular. But when done properly, these things are educative fuckers and fun to watch.

More cynical, more bitter, more jaded

It seems I'm currently watching two greatest long-standing comedy series of all time. Seinfeld and Trailer Park Boys. The former I've seen countless of times and the latter for the first time. Perhaps too early to tell yet, but I reckon nothing match their brilliance. Season 2 of Seinfeld with classic episodes such as The Chinese Restaurant, The Jacket and The Pony Remark.

Unleash shit tsunami

Trailer Park Boys season 4. Just too much fun, so much so in fact that I don't want to binge-watch the entire series in a matter of days and ruin the appetite. Probably the best entertainment I've discovered in 2021.

A siren from the deep

I always knew I'd want to see The Night Of mini series again. It's full of outstanding courtroom drama, the hardship of prison life, deductive reasonings, one solid suspense of grisly murder and innuendos and what ifs for good measure. And it's seriously good, a catching story, brilliant characters, exciting to the very end. 9 episodes and 8 hours 45 minutes - watched it in one day.

You don't need a history to have a future

A soldier gets a second change in life. He is killed, but thanks to science he comes back resurrected, improved and enchanced. He's now a robot really, a super-computer and indestructible soldier in flesh, blood and some badass nanotechnology. To avenge the death of his wife is the first agenda, but ends up a pawn between scientists power struggle. A techno thriller in every sense of the word, humbug shit really, but pretty well done.

No puffs. Just flakes.

As of late I've watched a lot of scenes of Seinfeld on Youtube and kind of craved back to see full episodes. The first season which right now is 32 years old. Yet it's still the best show on television.

Bring me people to kill

The world's greatest manhunt. The events and days the led to the capture - and death - of the most notorious terrorist Osama Bin Laden. Without too much bigotry, propaganda and patriotism Kathryn Bigelow made this exciting thriller in 2012.

Little too heavy on the booze

Season 3 of the Trailer Park Boys. First thing I noticed is the obvious budget increase. It still looks homemade and trashy trailer park material, but somehow it's more radiant now. And it's still phenomenally good and a brilliant entity of its own. Includes a cool episode - "Closer to the Heart" - involving a Rush concert and starring Alex Lifeson, the guitar player and a big fan of the show.

A man who is lying will eventually change his story

A little car accident, followed by a coma for four days and the guy's life has gone totally upside down. His wife doesn't remember him, no one else either, as if the collective memory of the world have forgotten him. Fucking not cool as paranoia sets in. He needs the help from the former officer of the Stasi to convince him that he is he. Truly an interesting plot. Flawed, as usually is the case with these kind of films, but a proper intriguing multi-layered mystery and it's technically perfect action.

Through denial and error

These hillbilly thugs are just tremendously funny. It's season 2 of the Trailer Park Boys and it's something else. You get absorbed in its originality (there's nothing close to it really), the weird yet loveable characters, the incorrectness, the dialogue and laughs. Can't think of better entertainment right now.

Just kinda follow the instructions

When quarantined, what a better way to pass the time than conduct a little séance over Zoom. In Host, a few girls have a go of that shit and their astral plane is spooky as hell! Heck, I truly liked this, brilliant performances, cool simple horror and the film's lenght barely reach a one hour mark. Effective.

Prepare for the unexpected

A James Bond movie directed by John Glen in 1989, starring Timothy Dalton as the agent 007,  Carey Lowell as the Bond Girl Pam Bouvier, Robert Brown as Bond's superior 'M' (the head of MI6), Desmond Llewelyn as 'Q' (the head of Q division), Caroline Bliss as Miss Moneypenny (MI6 secretary) and Robert Davi as Franz Sanchez, the main antagonist. The theme song performed by Gladys Night. The agent 007 is on a private vendetta against a drug lord who did serious harm to his buddies. Timothy Dalton did only two Bond movies and this is his last. Familiar faces such as Benicio del Toro and Everett McGill in the rank as well.

Seriously fucking yolo
