The “Bright” movie starring Will Smith on Netflix was surprisingly really good, definitely worth watching!

Last night on Netflix, I have decided to check out the new Will Smith movie exclusive to Netflix titled, “Bright”. To my surprise, the movie turned out really good despite my hatred toward Will Smith. I don’t like Will Smith at all but I watched this movie out of complete boredom and couldn’t think of anything else to watch.

The story to this movie and the script actually turned out quite interesting. It was also enjoyable and entertaining as hell throughout. It’s a buddy cop movie but a different kind of buddy cop movie. This movie is a mix of science fiction, fantasy and action all put together. This movie is also like “Lord of the Rings/Game of Thrones” and “Rush Hour” put together.

I was surprised how good this movie turned out to be and I’ll probably end up watching it again this week. The movie had an interesting concept ’cause it was original and different.

There’s probably gonna be a sequel to this movie, though. I can see this film turning into a series of films or a TV spinoff of some sorts. You should give this movie a shot this Christmas weekend if you can’t think of anything else to watch.

Netflix already announces “The Punisher – Season 2” even if it just released Season 1 last month…

I did watch “The Punisher – Season 1” on Netflix… watched the whole season. Every episode. The show got addicting from the start. There were some Punisher actors in big screen movies over the years like Dolph Lundgren, Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson. While those guys were great, I think Jon Bernthal played the best Punisher for sure.

This was a badass show, though. I’m so glad I kept Netflix. Even if most of their original material are shit, sometimes they can have good stuff on there. I was impressed with “The Punisher” on Netflix. It was fucking awesome. Loved all of it. The writing, the acting and the filming were pretty good too. The show was really violent and bloody as well.

When you watch this show, though, Frank Castle doesn’t put on the skull shirt and turn into this tough guy badass toward the end of the show. This is a new origin story of the Punisher, just an introduction. I’m sure things will get even better in Season 2. Season 1 was just a new introduction of the Punisher.

Jon Bernthal is a talented actor, though. I remembered him as Shane in “The Walking Dead” (a show I quit watching by the way). I’m already looking forward to Season 2. I’m not into Marvel that much but the Punisher is my favorite Marvel character. I love the Frank Castle story.

I like the Punisher ’cause he’s one of the very few superheroes who don’t have any superpowers. He’s just a real human kind of like Batman.

If you haven’t seen “The Punisher” on Netflix yet, you should watch it. I thought it was surprisingly a great show.

There are other shows I want to watch on Netflix. I gotta get around to starting “Gotham – Season 3” and I want to check out “Stranger Things” too. Too many shows, too little time.

Finished watching all of “Longmire” yesterday evening…

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving yesterday. I was meaning to post something about Thanksgiving but didn’t feel like posting on the blog much.

After my Thanksgiving meal, I decided to spend the whole Thanksgiving evening watching the rest of Longmire – The Final Season on Netflix last night.

This was such a good show. Most of Netflix’s original material when it comes to their TV shows and original movies are no good, but they actually have a few good things on Netflix TV. Longmire is one of their few good original TV shows. I’ve been watching Longmire since the beginning. This is one show that had everything: good acting, great writing and good filming. The show was filmed like a modern day Western. I look at it as part Western and part Mystery. It’s a mystery who-dun-it kind of show. The show can get unpredictable a lot ’cause you’ll never know who committed a lot of the crimes that were in the show. There will be some big shockers throughout the show too.

The acting by the cast was the best I’ve seen in a TV show in a long time. Everybody did good, but I was most impressed with Robert Taylor and Lou Diamond Phillips. Both of them stole the show and killed it. I think both of them deserve to win awards for this show. The characters and the stories are entertaining to watch, though.

Of course, the final season got a little more violent than the previous seasons… gotta save the best for the last.

Check out “Longmire” here:

I’m disappointed that Season 6 is the final season, but I don’t see this show ending for good ’cause the ending of the finale seemed like it just left open for more in the future. Does this mean that Longmire will have future reunion shows maybe? I think they will be back in the future like maybe for a TV movie or a limited run series kind of like what the X-Files did. Hopefully the show will be back for more.

If you’re a Netflix subscriber, you should check out the “Wheelman” movie, it’s actually a great film and I was surprised!

This movie called Wheelman starring Frank Grillo has been one of the most overhyped movies on the internet especially through social networking. The trailers looked pretty intriguing to me so last night, I decided to check the film out for myself… just out of curiosity. To my surprise, the film turned out really good, and I think it’s the best original film that Netflix has on there. I’ve seen some original Netflix movies, but the only two I liked were Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game and Wheelman. I thought both of those films were really good.

The film Wheelman is about this guy who is a getaway driver… ya know, a getaway driver is someone who gets paid for helping thieves escape after a successful robbery, well Grillo’s character was in a middle of a getaway job with these two thieves and he ends up in a messy situation. Grillo’s unnamed character ends up dealing with some evil men and ends up dealing with some mobsters who wanted that money. Grillo’s character is now in danger and he must deal with it all himself. The movie is about survival for the most part.

At first, I was skeptical of this film but as soon as I started it last night on Netflix… I was hooked and kept watching ’til the very end. I was expecting this movie to be like other action movies with cars… ya know, movies like: Fast and Furious, the Bourne Trilogy, Drive, Baby Driver, etc. This movie Wheelman was nothing like those films at all. Instead, Wheelman was a lot darker and more violent than those other films I mentioned. In the film, the camera never leaves Grillo’s car throughout the film pretty much and it was all in his point of view.

I think this is the best original movie on Netflix. I would like to get it on BluRay too if it’s available. Frank Grillo is a badass in this film too and it’s a must see. Do yourself a favor and check the film out. It’s fucking awesome!

Stephen King’s “Gerald’s Game” on Netflix was surprisingly very good, definitely worth watching if you’re a fan!

Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game is one of my favorite books of his. It’s in the top 5 really. It’s a great book, and finally a movie has been made of the book exclusive for Netflix streaming. I watched Gerald’s Game last night, and I was surprised of how great it actually was. The movie was just as creepy as the book. I was also astounded at how faithful the movie was from the book ’cause it was pretty close.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3748172/

Is it just me or is Hollywood getting much better with Stephen King adaptations to film? It seems so. Most S.K. movies have been pretty much garbage except the good films I’ve seen were: The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, Kubrick’s The Shining, Carrie (the original) and Misery. Then here comes new Stephen King movies for the big screen: The Dark Tower and IT which I thought both were really good. Now here comes Gerald’s Game for Netflix which I was impressed by. I think Hollywood’s goal is to try to improve S.K. films which is why they’re trying to remake a lot of them.

Keep in mind, though, S.K.’s The Stand is getting a big screen remake next, and that would probably turn out real good too.

Yeah, Stephen King is a liberal and he’s anti-Trump, but I don’t give a shit. I don’t care about an artists politics, it’s the entertainment I care about. I’ll still support Stephen King ’cause he’s a hero of mine. King was the one who got me into reading books and writing of my own. Yeah, King’s political views are whacky but he’s still a good writer.

Back to Gerald’s Game though, it makes me want to read that book again and I will. I may even re-watch the movie on Netflix tonight ’cause it was that damn good. You should check it out too if you’re a Netflix subscriber. Most of Netflix’s original movies and TV shows are garbage but they finally released something good.

Disney is getting their own streaming service… looks like all the Star Wars movies being made Netflix streamable is never gonna happen now…

Netflix has been trying to get all Star Wars movies to be made streamable, including the original trilogy and the prequels, but looks like that’s never gonna happen now. The reason is that Disney is getting their own streaming service pretty soon and everything Star Wars and everything Marvel will be moved to there.

‘Star Wars,’ Marvel Films Moving From Netflix to Disney Streaming Service

I was surprised to see that Disney actually allowed Netflix to stream, Star Wars: Rogue One — that film is gonna get pulled off of there.

Anyway, I don’t like Disney anymore. They’re no longer an interesting company. Are they trying to own everything? Seems like it. Disney is a powerful empire and it’s getting bigger.

Netflix is not all that great of a service either. You don’t need to watch Star Wars on Netflix anyways. The movies can be bought and downloaded from Itunes. If you have a Blu Ray player or just use DVD, you can watch the Star Wars movies on those things too. Even better, if you’re old school and still watch movies on VHS, you could probably watch the original Star Wars versions on VHS.

Screw Netflix. I don’t watch Netflix as much as I used to ’cause it’s no longer interesting. I only kept it ’cause of “Longmire” and “Gotham”. I like those shows.

Netflix now has more paid subscribers than cable TV which doesn’t surprise me really ’cause cable TV is garbage…

This year Netflix has gained a lot more paid subscribers. In the first quarter of 2017, Netflix has gained 50.9 million subscribers which is more than people who do cable TV. People who subscribe to cable TV are declining like crazy.

Check out this interesting article:

http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2017/06/15/netflix-surpasses-cable-television-in-paid-subscribers/

This doesn’t surprise me at all ’cause Cable TV is pretty much garbage these days. It’s not just liberal politics, it’s more than that. It’s just that there is nothing good on TV anymore.

I remember in the 90’s cable TV was pretty hot. When I was a kid growing up, I would watch a lot of cable TV. I was obsessed with it, lol. I would watch all my favorite shows like Star Trek: The Next Generation, The A-Team, Tales From The Crypt, Batman (RIP Adam West), MacGyver and things like that. I would also watch a lot of music videos on MTV. Those were the days when cable TV used to be something special.

Nowadays, cable TV is nothing but junk. Nothing good on TV anymore and this is why streaming services is a popular thing right now.

Once in a while on TV a good show will come around… shows that I liked: “Friday Night Lights”, “Dexter” and “Breaking Bad”. Shows that are on currently that I like are “Vikings” on the History Channel and I love “Game of Thrones”. I don’t have HBO, I just wait for the “Game Of Thrones” DVD sets ’cause I have them all so far.

There are some good shows that come around once in a while but most TV these days are junk. Nothing but stupid reality shows, dumb sitcoms on the weekends, no good primetime drama shows anymore, too many dumb singing competitions, dumb cooking shows, nothing but stupid political news shows and even the premium movie channels are all garbage. The premium movie channels like HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, etc. are all no good anymore. Except the only good show that HBO has right now is “Game of Thrones” ’cause I fucking love that show! It’s my favorite TV show right now. Other than that, I hate most cable TV.

I only subscribe to two streaming services and they are “WWE Network” and “Netflix”, that’s good enough for me. I thought about getting rid of Netflix but I’m gonna keep it. I only watch TV at night to relax. I don’t watch TV during the day.

Another reason for cable TV decline is that it’s getting so expensive, ya know? Monthly cable TV prices are getting so high. Streaming services much cheaper.

This new doesn’t surprise me at all!

Thinking I’m gonna cancel Netflix later today, probably will… so done…

First Netflix makes a movie about Barack Obama, then they fight against Trump’s Muslim ban and now they make a racist TV show against white people called, “Dear White People”. I gave Netflix plenty of chances but after their “Dear White People” teaser, that’s the final straw.

I don’t really need Netflix anyways. Their streaming choices has been shit to begin with. There are other options for me to watch movies and TV shows online, though. Would I switch to Hulu? No, probably ’cause Hulu is just as bad as Netflix. Hulu is just as liberal. I might switch to HBO NOW, not sure yet ’cause I actually liked HBO NOW. Yeah, HBO is pretty liberal too but at least they don’t ram their opinions down people’s throats like Netflix does.

If I want to watch TV shows or movies, I can just rent ’em from Itunes or rent/buy from the Playstation Store so I may not get any other streaming services at all. I only bought one show from the Playstation Store which was “Ash vs. Evil Dead” but if I want to watch other shows online, I can get ’em from the PSN. The PSN has every TV show you could ever want. I can also continue to buy movies and TV shows on Bluray/DVD which I have been. I’ve been buying all the “Game of Thrones” sets on DVD ’cause I don’t have HBO anymore but I’m thinking about getting it back with the HBO NOW streaming service. I’m a huge “Game of Thrones” nerd myself, fucking love that show!

I am keeping WWE Network, though ’cause I love the WWE Network. I’ve been watching WWE Network all year long. I’ve had WWE Network since the last Wrestlemania a year ago and I’m really loving that service. As some of you know, I’m a huge wrestling nerd and I’ve been watching a lot of old school wrestling on it which is what I got it for. I’ve also been watching the reality show, “Total Divas” on WWE Network and that’s a good show too.

Honestly, I don’t really need streaming services. They’re all pretty much junk and like I repeatedly stated above there are other options to watch your favorite TV shows and movies. I don’t watch a lot of TV anyways. I only watch TV at night, not during the day.

This week, I’ve been watching “Vikings – Season 1” ’cause there’s a lot of catching up I gotta do with that show. I love that show. Ragnar Lodbrok is a fucking badass character. The other characters of that show are great too: Floki, Lagertha, Siggy, Rollo, etc. It’s a great show, you should check it out too. Pretty dark and violent.

“Superman I-IV” and “Superman: Returns” are now on Netflix streaming… enjoy Superman fans!

I know there are a lot of Superman fans out there; however, there are still plenty of people who haven’t seen the original Superman movies with Christopher Reeve. Well, all the Christopher Reeve Superman movies are now on Netflix streaming! “Superman: Returns” with Brandon Routh as Superman is also on there. Of course, “Man of Steel” and “B vs. S: Dawn of Justice” aren’t on Netflix, though.

I’m a huge Superman fan. He was my first favorite superhero as a kid and still am a huge fan of the character now. It saddens me though that there are still people who hasn’t seen the Chris Reeve Superman flicks… well if you haven’t seen any of them, I would recommend you do so especially the first two. The first two are the best of the series. I did like III and IV but the first two are classics. I did like “Superman: Returns” a lot even though that film got mixed reviews.

Why are there still people who hasn’t seen the Chris Reeve Superman flicks? A new generation of movie fans, I guess. That happens. If you’re on Netflix and a fan of superhero films, I would recommend you watch these. Superman has been played by many different actors over the years but Chris Reeve will always be the best Superman, in my opinion.

“Spotlight” was surprisingly a very good film, watched it on Netflix last night…

I remember last year when the Oscars was around, “Spotlight” won Best Picture last year. Another movie that stars Michael Keaton. I remember being disappointed that “Spotlight” won Best Picture over “The Revenant” movie. After finally seeing the movie “Spotlight” last night on Netflix, I’m now realizing that the Oscars giving “Spotlight” the Best Picture win was the right choice after all. “Spotlight” really was an excellent film. I loved it actually, I might even watch it again later tonight. After you get done watching the movie the first time and you want to give it a second viewing, that’s when you know the film is that damn good.

“Spotlight” is a great story based on a real life thing. The film has a great cast, the writing is surprisingly good and best of all, Michael Keaton kills it with his acting like usual. The cast of this movie is pretty killer: Liev Schreiber, Mark Ruffalo, Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup, etc.

If you have Netflix, this film is worth a look. I’m definitely gonna get my own copy of the film on BluRay, I think. Turned out to be a great film after all.
