    Films - Watched and thoughts 2018

    Sicario 2: Something of the Something - Doesn't come close to the first. A few moments of grit and tension, but otherwise not much to love. I give it 3 out of 5 Cheeky Bastards. Carlos.

    Films - Watched and thoughts 2018

    Solo - I enjoyed it very much. Didn't see a thing wrong with it. I loved the many callbacks (callforwards?) to the original saga, such as Chewie learning to play chess, actually ripping the arms off somebody, and above all, I love the huge, giant FUCK YOU to George Lucas with That alone made the whole movie worth it! I had avoided that spoiler and cheered emphatically when it surprised me. I also thought Glover's Lando was perfect. This was a good movie, and a good Star Wars Story. I give it 4 out of 5 Missing Threepios. Carlos.

    Wanted: Horror movie suggestions...

    Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House is getting good buzz. Drops on Oct 10. They had me at Carla Gugino. Carlos.

    I've watched the first 3 episodes of Maniac, and it's weird and trippy and sad. It's also nice visually. That's about all I can say about it now. I'll keep watching. Carlos.

    Did you guys see Green Room? It was a good fight-to-survive movie. Carlos.

    I meant Unsane. That's probably why you never heard of. Carlos.

    I'm the only one here who commented on "A Cure for Wellness". Did anyone else here even see it? Also, don't forget "Unwell", which I thought was fairly well done. And 1922 (netflix), based on a Stephen King story, is pretty good too. Carlos.

    Amazon Echo Auto

    It's confusing to me because all the articles mention you connect it to your phone via bluetooth, but then it clearly says it uses bluetooth to connect to your cars BT connection (or you can use the Aux connection). I'm no expert on BT, but aren't you restricted to just two things "paired" at a time. I can connect the echo to my phone or I can connect the echo to my car, via BT, but not both. Does it have two, separate BT connections? If so, that's actually genius--Connect the Echo Auto to phone via one BT connection, from which it gets its internet connection using your phones normal data plan (is it even possible to do this?) Connect the Echo Auto to car's input via the 2nd BT connection, to get the audio transmitted to the car's speakers. I'm really hoping it's not the phone that has to do all the processing. I'd rather the Echo do all the heavy lifting. For $50, it would have to be more than just a microphone/transceiver, no? Carlos.

    Amazon Echo Auto

    I've been waiting for this! https://www.amazon.com/Introducing-Echo-Auto-first-your/dp/B0753K4CWG/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?_encoding=UTF8&ref_=ods_gw_dg2_ha_mn_092018 Echo Auto, looks like it uses your phones data plan via what, wifi sharing? Or bluetooth? Connects to Alexa using your phone, is ready in seconds, and plays through your car speakers. Includes Echo Auto Dash Mount. With eight microphones designed for in-car acoustics, Echo Auto can hear you over music, A/C, and road noise. Use your voice to play music, check the news, open the garage door, find the nearest gas station, and more. Play Audible books, stream podcasts, or listen to Amazon Music, Spotify, Sirius XM, or NPR. Make calls, set reminders, add items to your shopping and to-do lists, or manage your calendar. With over 50,000 skills and counting, Alexa is always getting smarter. Skills are like apps and let you do more with Alexa. Set location-based routines—automated actions Alexa can start when you leave the office or get home. Ask for directions and Alexa connects to supported apps like Google Maps, Apple Maps, or Waze on your phone. I almost bought the Garmin w/Alexa GPS thingy a week ago, but now I'll wait for this. I just need more info on if you have to use your phone as wifi sharing, because I don't get unlimited on my current plan. You can ask for an invite to get one at the introductory price of $25 (half-off) when they become available (later this year). Carlos.

    Wanted: Horror movie suggestions...

    There's a French film from 2017 called "Revenge" that seems similar in concept to TLHOtL. Anyone seen that? Freaking trailer gives a lot away, so don't watch it! Instead, decide based on this: Revenge is a 2017 French rape and revenge action horror film directed and written by Coralie Fargeat. Starring Matilda Lutz, Kevin Janssens, Vincent Colombe and Guillaume Bouchède, it follows a young woman who is assaulted and left for dead in the desert. Carlos.
  12. I remember really liking Halloween 4, but I don't remember anything about it. I would like to see 1,2,4 again. Seems like 4 is rarely, if ever, aired. I also liked the first one that had the return of Jamie Lee Curtis after Halloween 2. Was that 4, or was it much later? Carlos.

    British TV shows are the BEST!!!

    Some clips of a BBC show "Bodyguard" have popped up on my Youtube feed. One looked particularly good, showing an assassination attempt. Is this a good show? Carlos.
  14. Why would you have such a rule? It's perfect for him. A) Every line of dialogue is either whispered or screamed. and B ) everything in the movie is on fire. Carlos.

    It's one of the best things Netflix has ever done. It struck all the right chords with me. 5 out of 5 Horseheads. Carlos.
