    funny, i almost started watching 'snowpiercer' (also by the same director as parasite) but instead i decided to be trashy and kept watching 'riviera', this soapy thriller type show with lena olin and julia stiles that's eurotrashy and entertaining in a noirish b movie kind of way. neil jordan was involved at some point but then publicly disowned it.

    I started watching Riviera but it felt a little too soapy/Euro-trashy for me to keep watching. But it reminded me that Lena Olin is captivating onscreen. Julia Stiles not so much.

    It's terrible. Words cannot describe how bad it is. But because it's 2020 and my brain can't handle anything that requires any kind of thought right now, there's a bunch of "good" TV on my list that I just don't have the bandwith for. So, Riviera it is. Full disclosure: I just started season three and it's so bad and the story has gone so far off the rails that it's actually a vast improvement over the first two seasons. And yes, Lena Olin is gorgeous and captivating. Julia Stiles and her weird, expressionless flat face is the worst possible choice for leading lady of a soapy, trashy show. The dialogue remains laughably, ridiculously awful.

    The Owners with Maisie Williams and Rita Tushingham. A bunch of low level thugs burglarize an old couple's house and end up becoming their victims. A bit of a mindfuck of a movie, but the English know how to make these things.

    ^^^It's way creepy Beeyotch. Enjoy.

    Finally getting to see If Beale Street Could Talk. The book made me cry and so is the movie. The opening lines bring back so many memories. We all lived on Beale Street. Yeah.

We had it on in the kitchen while we were making dinner, and I think I was the only person really paying any kind of attention. I actually had to go back and read the Wikipedia plot because of critical stuff I missed (for example, I didn't know who the dog really was). Mrs Mo and our daughter would be pretty upset if they knew what was happening in the movie. Our daughter looked at the screen for a second and said, "Is that the woman from 'Blue is the Warmest Color'?" But that was about it.

    I saw it, I liked it and don't remember a single thing about it. Just Colin and I think the beach? It came recommended but I must have blocked out all the content.

    Ocean's Eight - Bullock (did not move her face), Blanchett, Kaling, Paulson, Rihanna, Awkwafina, Anne Hathaway (miscast as a socialite). I really don't know what she's got cause I don't see it. Some genius casting director hired my ultimate fun babe, Elizabeth Ashley. It was fun.

    I put on my list The Professor and the Madman with Mel and Sean Penn about the man who wrote the first Oxford Dictionary. Ioan Gruffud, Jennifer Ehle and Anthony Andrews (original Brideshead). I hope to get sucked in with good acting.

    I just watched the Lobster three days ago. I didn't get it. I love weird movies but that was too weird for me.

    Speaking of "Lobster" and Lanthimos, one of his other movies came up tonight while we were having dinner - "Killing a Sacred Deer". Our daughter brought up the "sacred deer" at dinner concept because of something we were discussing. But she hadn't heard of the movie. I looked up the movie, and it sounds pretty amazing. Also stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman and Barry Keoghan. Basically, Colin Farrell is forced to make a horrible sacrifice based on a transgression he made in the distant past.

    Also, "Hereditary" (with Toni Colette, Alex Wolff, and Gabriel Byrne) is on as I type this. It is on super heavy rotation on Showtime - 5 times a day, every day this week. I'm going to drive my poor family crazy....

    Sorry for the double post, but I can't edit the last one"

    "Spontaneous" - I'm not sure exactly how to describe this but it's a love story combined with kind of a horror story about a group of high school students who suddenly begin to spontaneously explode in a big cloud of blood, with no rhyme or reason, every day or so. I know that sounds really bizarre, but it has a 78 on Metacritic and a 8.4/10, 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. I really liked it because of the overall message, but our daughter was not happy about the ending.

    Where's My Roy Cohn? Documentary about Commie-hating, deeply closeted, racist POS Roy Cohn. Trump was his protege, which should give you pause. Or maybe not. It was a fascinating documentary, though.
