  1. Thanks for the recommendation, I have seen "City of Lies", which isn't bad, but as you said the story is far too complex for just two hours. That is why I think it plays out better through the 10 episodes of "Unsolved". The shootout between LAPD officers Kevin Gaines and Frank Lyga is shown in the very first episode, as it was the event that opened the floodgates into the investigation of police involvement with Death Row Records and possibly the murders.
  2. I will respect this, and I apologize if I offended anyone as it was certainly not my intention. Kind regards.
  3. Who do you believe then? Have you even looked at the film, let alone seen it through? I looked at it. What do YOU base YOUR opinion on? That is all I am asking, because to me it sounds like you are basing it on a bunch of conservative hearsay, meaning you are basing it on NOTHING. See, I too can use caps lock to emphasize my point, but I do also throw in an argument or two in there as well unlike yourself who just regurgitates the internet. Thanks. Enjoy the rest of your day.
  4. OK, intrigued I have just skimmed through the movie and really am starting to wonder if you ever even saw any of it or you are just repeating what you read online. Because the most controversial thing I saw was some younger teenage girls dancing (what I would compare to average highschool cheerleading moves) in shorts and tank tops in a fairly serious looking drama movie about emancipation of girls in an Islamic upbringing. I think that equating it to child pornography is a bit strong. If anything, the filmmakers themselves stated that it is in fact a critique of the hypersexualisation of teenage girls, not an endorsement of it, so it seems to me like you are totally missing the picture, but whatever, I'll just drop it now. You are entitled to your opinion no matter how you came to it I guess. I still won't watch the entire movie simply because I am not interested in it. Kind regards.
  5. I meant nothing by my comment and apologize if it came across wrong. As I mentioned, I have not seen the film and probably never will, and I certainly respect your opinion as someone who has seen it and knows what he is saying. Kind regards.
  6. Oh... Cuties I reckon? I have just now read up about it. I did also notice it on my Netflix list, but it didn't look interesting to me so I never gave it a look. Seems like a lot of people are being judgmental without giving it a chance though, based only on what they read on the internet. That said, I will probably not watch it simply because I am not interested in the subject matter. I do, however, suspect it might be popular among the female population, especially the younger demographic. Each to their own I suppose, and thanks for the explanation. Kind regards.
  7. I just googled “recent netflix movie that went too far” and found out nothing. Could you be any more ambiguous?
  8. Just finished the Netflix original 10 part series “Unsolved”, focusing on the 20 year span of investigations into still officially unsolved murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., which also opened the floodgates in uncovering the LAPD Rampart division corruption scandal. It is an amazingly produced, perfectly cast and very well structured show with multiple timelines that cover pretty much every aspect of this fairly complex true crime case in mindblowing detail. Recommended! https://m.imdb.com/title/tt6233618/
  9. I just caught Ford vs. Ferrari on HBO and decided to rewatch it...I may be wrong, but it seemed to me like there are a few shots in Ken Miles’ (Chris Bale’s) son’s bedroom in which a car model box can be seen on a shelf in the background. I’m not sure, but it looks like it could be an Aurora E-Type Jag... That would be period correct, no? I would actually appreciate it if someone could confirm this as I did find it interesting and quite an appropriate detail if in fact true (kudos to the production designer for sure).
  10. Glad you like Ozark! To me it is like "Breaking Bad", but for grownups Marty's character is great, but just wait for Laura Linney's Wendy character to come in full "Walter White-like bloom" Enjoy! It certainly doesn't let up in seasons 2 and 3 I am currently into the 8 episode miniseries "Manhunt: Unabomber" with Sam Worthington as the FBI profiler and Paul Bettany as Ted Kaczynski. Worth a watch.
  11. There are a few Netflix original series which I liked, and have not been mentioned yet as far as I can tell... "Mindhunter" is an interesting show about the FBI profiling pioneers in serial murderer cases set in the late 70-s. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5290382/ "Narcos" and "Narcos: Mexico" are fantastically produced sagas about the drug trade ranging from the days of Pablo Escobar and other Colombian cartels to the rise of the infamous Mexican cartels. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2707408/ https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8714904/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 And if you like "Breaking Bad" you might like "Ozark", a show about a financial advisor played by Jason Bateman who gets into all sorts of shenanigans with his family whilst laundering money for a Mexican drug cartel from the Ozark lakes. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5071412/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0 If you don't mind foreign language stuff, Spanish show "Money Heist" (Originally "La Casa de Papel") is interesting too. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6468322/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 As for Netflix original movies, there is always Scorsese's "The Irishman" if you haven't seen it yet https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1302006/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 And "Tiger King"... Not sure what to say... You have to watch it in order to at least try to believe it, and even then one remains skeptical about it all... It is "interesting" much in the same way as a highway pileup occurring as you watch, if you know what I mean... It is terrible but you simply cannot look away https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11823076/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
  12. This is still available... I would trade this for various parts kits (specifically the Revell/Hasegawa BMW compact cup car, if anyone has one lying around... I could use just the body parts and transparent pieces), and/or garage diorama stuff... Specifically I am looking for a Fujimi car lift from the Tools kit, AMT Coca Cola stuff (decals, crates, soda machines)… Make me an offer if interested
  13. It is a sequence of a dream Tom Cruise's character has, but it is overall an unusual movie, to say the least... Not the easiest to watch and understand, but if you don't mind something different, I recommend it It is actually an American remake, directed by Cameron Crowe, of a Spanish movie called "Abres los ojos" (Open Your Eyes) by Alejandro Amenabar. There are a few other classics in it, apart from this Ferrari GTO, which is, unfortunately, a replica (at least according to info available online), albeit quite a decent looking one: https://silodrome.com/ferrari-alpha-one-gto-tom-cruise-vanilla-sky/
  14. Nice video. It's amazing how empty London streets are. This was clearly shot at the peak of the Corona lockdown. I was immediately reminded of the scene from Vanilla Sky
