They do have a lot of great museums and galleries. met4life. I didnt quite see the appeal of the other landmark spots (tall building and famous streets and such), but liked the little cruise around the islands the tourist book ticket throws in and obviously they have pretty great food and entertainment options all over... the main problem is paring down the 500 "must visit" places everyone whos visited before tells you to hit up, or you would have to change bar every 40 minutes to see every hipster cocktail bar or working class dive or live mexican wrestling thing everyone insists is the true new york experience.

Oh the snow leopard is long dead, they had to put it down after it mauled some drunk british guy who tried to rescue it.

Me and Snowy were just meant to be together

The best bit of new york is the tiny little zoo in the middle of central park, where the snow leopard just looks at you in the rain, whispering save me.

The march-april-may version is good for me, spaces out the holiday between my other decadent white man holidays the cleanest. If we had an official date for that set by like Dec/January so I can book best value a Asia tour around it, I am down like Charlie Brown.

Codespyder was Piers Morgan all along.

Its a weird movie.

I liked the initial set up, the not to distant future, and that the concept of AI/Human romances is essentially a thing so we dont have to have a lot of discussion of how weird that is.

It was quite nicely shot and acted, little bits of humour were good, I just have no idea... like what the point was...

Same as before.

I am down for Monop.

In EST (and I resent the American imperalism of using it) 1pm-7pm generally week days, whenever on the weekends.

I would do an asian fest, like further out date wise, if we were serious. I would need a bit more time to get holidays and book trips around it etc.

If we are not serious, then guys I dont know what kind of forum we are running anymore, life isnt a joke.

I will do Triv and Poker, I think Scrabble and Monopoly are off now? But I would have won both of those, so just put me down as gold.

One of the best shows about, for sure.

Just a solid noir fest. Still do not really know the plot, like at all, but who cares. Great show.

I think Hoffman and Sean Harris (dude from the new one) were both great great actors, acting up an evil storm, but lacked a cool hook I agree.

I am strongly strongly in favour of an Ilsa spin off (or her picking up the franchise) bringing the world more of her equal part ridiculous/awesome thigh based takedowns.

Also my favourite part of the movie

And that my date during the opening plane stunt whispered "thats... impossible" dismissively, with no hint of irony.

Season 2 of Bojack Horseman is better than the first I think.

Well the first season was a slow start with a few misstep episodes, season two is all gold. Maybe the best netflix show?

"Frank set me up"

"I have no idea what that means" *walks off*

I love this show.

I always saw it as playing with cliches, McConno was obviously a comical play on the burnt out existential character, absurd and knocked back by Woody H for the shows best bits. Im not sure its outright parody, but certainly its always been a show reveling in silly conventions and genre tropes, playing with ideas. And it doubling down into that is just good news for me.

I think the show has really come into its own, its to noir pastiches what Hannibal is to gothic horror genre. The first season (much like Hannibal) tried to lay its plot down more traditional lines and suffered for that (in both cases). I think this show is at its rocking best when its just people acting the hell out of absurd noir cliche lines to each other, while mysterious noir shit happened in the darkness of our souls.

I for one embrace this move of all tv shows away from coherent plots and grounding in reality.

Don't read comics, gotcha. Way ahead of that.

I went to see Jurassic World yesterday (mostly to kill time before a show) but that was like an unwatchable dull hour of boringness and cliche character types existing for no particular purpose, however the big finale is so insanely hot mess awful it has a kind of perfect beauty. Made me sad they didnt fully commit to the awful absurd monster movie element, but instead seemed to want to force in the "awe" tone from the original and play it straight at points, making it a dumb mess.

The dialogue felt like it was all written in broad "first draft" strokes and then somebody forgot to go fix it. Like theres clear joke beats but no actual joke in several places and they picked a good cast but nobody has anything to do or say. Like it loudly establishes everyone cliche character traits but none of them ever come into play or interact in any way.

Every actor was playing a different movie and it was just horribly directed but I felt like Vincent Donofrio was the only one who picked an appropriate tone (B Movie monster movie villain) and would have worked if anybody else responded to that.
