What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies!

 

It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons. 

 

DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs. 

 

Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it.

So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up? 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Walking Dead is back! Another favorite is Homeland.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Two of my favorites.  I have Walkimg Dead on DVR, can't wait to watch it. Sometimes I like to stack a few episodes so I can binge watch!  Did you see the preview on Showtime for Billions?  That looks like a good one too. It stars the actor who played Brody on Homeland. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Anyone seen Love & Mercy? It chronicles the brilliance and struggles of Brian Wilson, the lead singer of the Beach Boys. I watched it the other day and found it absolutely phenomenal.

 

Paul Dano is absolutely spectacular as the young Brian Wilson. John Cusack plays older Brian Wilson, Elizabeth Banks plays his love interest and Paul Giamatti plays his therapist. 

 

As someone who grew up with a lot of Beach Boys on the stereo, it actually felt like you were watching "Pet Sounds" being created and brought to life before your eyes. Just amazing. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I wanted to see this so badly when it came out, but things didn't work out. I'm glad to hear you liked it, and look forward to its appearance on Netflix.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I haven't even heard of it, but now I want to see it!

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

We don't have cable so I always feel so out of the loop on movies. I hadn't heard of it either and figured that had to have been a sign, but it actually got really good reviews. 

 

The parts with Cusack and Banks are a little generic, and I wish they had gone with smaller names for those roles, but Giamatti was fantastic and Paul Dano was outstanding. 

 

Highly recommend to anyone who likes the Beach Boys or likes music in general. I always thought of the Beachh Boys as fairly shallow, poppy, California surf music, but it's so much more than that. I really never even considered them to be contemporaries/competitors of The Beatles, but that's exactly what they were. 

 

And you know you're probably pretty good when Paul McCartney calls one of your songs (God Only Knows) the best song ever written. 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Thanks for the info! I grew up hearing the Beach Boys on family trips as my parents really liked their music. I also grew up on and loved Wilson Phillips. Remember them?! That was one of my very first cassette tapesSmiley Happy

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I was talking to my coworker about the movie and she dropped a Carnie Phillips on me! I feel like I knew the connection at one time, but it totally caught me off guard!

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Yes! Two Wilson girls and one Phillips.

Chynna Phillips, daughter of The Mamas and the Papas! My mom loved them as well.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Now I have to see it!!  Is it on DVD or Netflix?

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Redbox and iTunes for now... Netflix I'm sure is coming.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I watched Narcos last week and it was really good!  There's a couple good looking men in it too!

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

The walking dead season premiere tonight! rewatched last season and I AM READY!

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Can't wait!  We are going to watch it outside in the dark

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Finished binge watching House of Cards yesterday - it's good but I found the last season a bit boring. Will definitely be watching the upcoming season though.

 

 

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Saw The Martian and loved it!  The premise is very 'Cast Away' meets 'Apollo 13' but that description doesn't really do it justice.  It's a really good balance of exciting, funny, and smart.

 

Now I want to read the book it's based on.  Anyone read it?

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I've read it and then got really excited to find out its a movie!  The book is really good!  I recommend it Smiley Happy

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

the book is awesome. its definitely worth checking out.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I just watched Season 1 Episode 1 of American Horror Story and I love it already. Where have I been and how have I missed it?!

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

Season 1 was amazing!  Each season is very different though (even though they use a lot of the same actors) - there has not been another as good as the first one yet.

Re: What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)

I'm on episode 8 of oven already!! It's not as good and I kinda can't wait to get to the next one. Lol I like that they start a new story every season!
