    After Life

    Ok so now I saw it all. I thought the final episode was a little schmaltzy. Too much all at the end. Thought the scene where Matt was legit upset was touching. You could see the realization on Tony's face that he was hurting people he loved. I checked out Derek last night - same cast pretty much. Perhaps because these are people Gervais worked with before you just felt that he liked them all. Even when he would make a joke it seemed obvious he liked them all. Brian was sad. Thought they should have gotten him help. I don't think they should make anymore. I think it was the perfect "life lesson" about getting over great grief.

    After Life

    I haven't finished it but I thought it was excellent. My relating was the scene where Gervais is hanging out at the hospital and sees his wife's room. I live in a relatively small town and you better I believe I am acutely aware of all the rooms my loved ones suffered in. But have to say.. the show was really helped out by that dog. Very pretty. Roisin Conaty was wonderful as the sex worker. She had her own short show on Hulu which cracked me up, called Gameface.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Agreed. I also feel Steve never really dreamed of having a wife or having kids.. he seemed to dream more of helping people. So his "end game" would be making a major difference to the world. I don't think he could ever just sit around and NOT be helping people, captain america or not, so I think that would pose problems if he went back in time and perhaps, if he had kids or was with Peggy, he might not give them his full attention. He would always be distracted wanting to help out. I suspect they will give some sort of way back in for a cameo or something but - Steve buys it.

    The Order

    Netflix needs to slow down and start making good series. There is too much blah on there now. All of these bothered me. But I had two weird things. What is with Jack's hair? It was gross greasy not good greasy. He also didn't seem that attractive to me (and looked nothing like his dad). Why were people not losing their minds when kids were being killed off at this school in the early episodes? I recognized Vera from "Ginger Snaps" which is a great series about werewolves.

    The new look is really surprising and noticeable. I can't tell if I like it or not. She looks good but it seems to different from the origin movie I can't tell what that means for the character. Strange too that Natasha is relatively make up free always so I don't think it is a "Russo" gaze thing. I heard a rumored spoiler That made me feel better about how she would be handled in this movie.

    Deadly Class

    Agreed. I feel like he is a low threat to Marcus. Marcus grabbed me from the start but he is staring to fall into the background and I just don't love the other characters *that* much.

    Deadly Class

    I just caught this on demand and thank god... I was having problems understanding them too. At first I turned it up but I still couldn't really get most of what they were saying. Poor sound editing. Otherwise I was really drawn in. I knew nothing about the comic.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    I happened to be flipping through you tube as this was getting posted and I definitely thought the real trailer was a fake when I saw it, but then I saw several more. Does anyone else think this could be a bit of a fake - produced by the Russos? Steve looks really weird in that shot at the group.

    Speculation but, just in case...

    Sex Education

    I got to episode 6 but... while well made... I hated some aspects. First, Mave to me is unlikable and not worthy of Otis. The only reason she gets any play is that she looks like Margo Robbie. Otis seems obviously to be very handsome (ok he isn't built but he has potential) and is a very good friend to Mave. She should thank her lucky stars but ignores him. (admittedly have two episodes to go) but right now she is on my last nerve and I don't understand her relationship with Jackson other than she found the one guy she is least likely to ever get with really. Just waiting for the abortion secret to come out, probably in season 2. Adam was sooo obvious as gay. Amazing no one suggested it. But I always feel such plots are dangerous because they make gay kids think that people that don't like them... really do. A similar situation was made fun of in "he is just not that into you" for the heterosexual. I liked Eric but I didn't see how him and Otis could be friends. They didn't seem to have much in common. There were a few scenes where Eric as much as realized he wasn't needed in the situation and just basically left. The actors didn't have a friend vibe that worked for me. They were friends because the show demanded it. It seemed odd for Otis to be so free about dressing up in drag where for most of all the episodes he was very sensitive about being embarrassed in that way. Should I feel bad for GA? I thought her character and her acting was just awful.

    Spider-man: Far From Home (2019)

    One weird thing about it is that it seems to give away the idea that no one is traumatized about what happened with Thanos. Just in case

    Spider-man: Far From Home (2019)

    I had concerns about Spiderman showing up in Europe but this looks like Spidey really won't. Like most of the time Peter is trying to be on the down low. Loved Aunt May embracing Peter as Spiderman. Don't love Happy and May but the thing is... early reports made it seem like it was a thing in progress. But it seems like EVERY man can't help but flirt with May and that was all that was happening. I just love MJ, "I am just messing with you." she clearly likes him but may not know how to react to such things and always reacts but pretending like she doesn't care. The teenager / John Hughes vibe is still strong and if Betty is there seems like she might have joined academic decathlon? Do have to side eye at Peter not getting any spider sense at Nic Fury sitting in his room but maybe it is because Nick isn't a threat to him. One thing, what happened to Peter's bedroom? It was wayyy bigger in the last movie.
