    Also watching The Queen's Gambit - 4 eps in. I agree - the cinematography is excellent. Some damn fine editing, too - pacing is pretty much perfect.

    And the acting is superb. Anya Taylor-Joy is utterly believable - and captivating - as the protagonist. She does not disappoint.

    I would describe Anya Taylor-Joy's performance as being the sort of performance on an actor like Ryan Gosling could pull off. It's all in the eyes and subtleties in the face. Similar to Gosling in drive she is often quite quiet and with those piercing eyes, it makes when she speaks feel that much more important.

    Also it's hard to believe that's the little kid from Love Actually. I know he's been in other stuff, but the cowboy look and the accent...you wouldn't even think he's kind of a goofy looking Brit.

    Wait, did you not like it? I just finished Ratched and loved it. Way better than some seasons for AHS and that other show he did that I didn't even watch the last episode of I really hope there's going to be a second season. Although I also won't be disappointed if there isn't. Even though it's left open, it was still fulfilling and might be ruined by more. He definitely was inspired by Hitchcock with this one, so maybe that heightened my enjoyment of it.

    Ratched was originally picked up for two seasons, so another one is coming.

    I liked it (definitely better than many seasons of AHS), though would've liked more of a closed ending with
    Spoiler:
    the brother dying rather than ending on that cliffhanger.

    Considering I had to click on the video to figure out what the hell Quibi was, I guess I'm not surprised.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    It wasn't bad, but I think I'm a little over Murphy's style at this point. All of his stuff is starting to feel really similar. Very style over substance.

    If the DNA from Cuckoo's Nest is human. Then the DNA for Ratched is alien in nature. They have that little in common besides the name.

    I just rewatched One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and agree. I don't see any connection between the two other than her name.

    Watching a Canadian TV series called Slasher. There's 3 or 4 seasons but only the first is on Netflix. The second half has been much more enjoyable than the first. Anyone here seen it?

    I always really enjoyed Star Wars Clone Wars overall as a series. With the Mandalorian saving Star Wars from Disney, I wanted to look into Rebels as well because some of these characters are perhaps coming to the Mandalorian series. So, Clone Wars was damn good, Rebels is simply so so. It has it's moments, but definitely as a cartoon it is geared towards kids. But with rumors persisting on who might pop up in the Mandalorian, I gave it a shot. Resistance is two seasons so I was going to eventually give that a chance too. I am talking about the animated series.

    It's fantastic, isn't it? I really wished it had somewhere to properly stream outside of the UK, especially with the recent remake so easily available by comparison.
