I’m a huge fan of the franchise with Evil Dead II being one of my all time favourite films so I laughed my ass off throughout season two of Ash vs Evil Dead. Have you got up to the morgue ‘fight’ yet?
The family has been away for a week or so, but we took the kids to see Moana on a wet morning. It’s another great film. The songs are catchy but what really works are the emphasis on Pacific island culture and the leads of Auli’i Cravalho and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. To be honest, I’ll watch anything with The Rock in it. Movies get a 1-2 star ratings boost due to his presence. Hell, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island had the Pec Pop of Love!
Disney Animation Studios is really nailing their movies lately and their output has been stronger than Pixar for a couple of years. Big Hero 6, Frozen, Zootopia and now this. I’m getting old and soppy and well up in the emotional moments…
Finished season two of Fargo. The first was great but I enjoyed this season even more. Excellent cast and a more interesting plot meant for less falling asleep in front of the TV moments. I like the call backs to the first season, but also the fact that each season represents a stand-a-lone story makes it easy to return to.
Also one of the best shows on television, Black Sails, has started back up. The final season premier was excellent and I’m at a loss as to how they re-create these naval battles on their budget without it looking like a CGI cartoon. It’s good when a show can plan it’s ending ala Banshee. I only wish Deadwood was given the same opportunity!
