Agreed on Halt & Catch Fire and think he's a standout in Foundation--would love to know more about his twatdom, @Seul

Haven't decided about Foundation yet, but at a minimum I'll enjoy as escapist sci fi. It's at least got that going for it. I didn't read the books so I may be less picky. I am somewhat nervous about the new Dune because I do have such a firm rendering of that story in my mind and think it would be difficult to shoot that movie. Which is what I feel Foundation would be like as well had I read the books.
Think it, be it.

Saw Dune last week. I’ve read the books many times and unironically enjoy the Lynch movie in spite of its many and obvious flaws.

There was a lot about the new film I loved. However I feel like I should wait on a holistic comment until I’ve seen part two.
Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger,
Everything under the gun.

Yeah--I like David Lynch's film too @neph93 as its own thing. I would love to see someone bring to film something that I think of as the Dune I read if that makes sense.

I have only read Dune, none of the sequels. I probably should. But Dune does great at being a self-contained story, so as much as I love the world Herbert built, have not gotten around to the sequels.
Think it, be it.

I finished the Ken Burn’s documentary on Ali last night and it was truly hard to watch. Ali was omnipresent in my childhood and I have vivid memories of him. Wondering if he was as iconic to those living outside the US?  The documentary does a great job of exploring all of the parts, good and bad, that created his mythical persona. And because you know ahead of time the physical toll all the fights took on him, the tragedy of his later years is like a dark shadow around the corner. Tore me up to be honest.

Obviously I’m biased,but highly recommend the documentary,On Netflix, Count Me In. It’s about,you guessed it,playing drums. Haven’t finished it,but so far it’s really great. That’s coming from someone who would tend to be super critical of something like this.

Speaking of lessons @Jett129 the instructor I had long ago also was “teaching” Keith Carlock at the time. “Teaching” is in quotes because the student had surpassed the teacher long ago and everyone knew it. You never know how someone’s career will turn out but he wound up, among other things, Steely Dan’s touring drummer. Not a group known for slouching on talent, particularly drummers, with names like Purdie, Gadd, Porcaro, Blaine, Humphrey, etc

I went in the opposite direction  :D
Think it, be it.

Finished the last season of the American version of Shameless...shed a tear too.

I asked this a few weeks ago but did anyone watch Wu Tang: An American Saga? Shit is so good.
