Re: The Dark Tower (2017)

Watched it yesterday. Have not read the books. Was good.
Idris Elba is great and I didn't even recognize Matthew McConaughey as the bad guy until someone pointed it out later (which is a good thing cause I usually can't stand him).

Re: Why Are Subs Better than Dubs?

My hearing is bad.

Re: Sense 8

I feel this was a show with a lot of promise and then someone decided that one or two things they did was a lot cooler than the other stuff they did so they sort of got hung up on doing those things over and over and the rest sort of fizzed out.

Squandered potential stuff.

Re: Controversial opinions about food

Adding spice to food after it's cooked, does not work. It doesn't taste right. Spice needs to be cooked into the food, not put on like a lid afterwards. I'd rather eat non-spicy food than add spice afterwards. It's like baking brownies, but instead of putting sugar in the batter you sprinkle it on t...

Re: The Expanse

Just watched the first episode of this. It seems really solid as a sci-fi show, and plotwise the first episode is a hard-hitter, very satisfying.

It's a little bit slow for my personal tastes though, but I'll definitely pick it up again next time I get time to binge on something.
