    Just wanted to chime in and agree with Dan about JNH’s Grindelwald score. Beautiful work.
  2. Finished S2, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes, episode 7 was fan service, but it was rad fan service. Loved seeing some of the inclusions in the Belmont family vault. For the most part, it really captures the essence of the games (which aren’t exactly narratively complex - but they are crisp and direct). I’ll be interested to see where they go from here.

    Netflix members...

    Hill House is a tough watch for me. I can do ghouls, vampires, slashers, monsters, etc. But ghosts just work my raw nerves. I’m two episodes in and the show is very intense for me, but I like it quite a bit. Can’t wait to see where it will go, and whether I’ll fully acclimate to it. I’ve been washing it down with Castlevania (which I’ll finish tomorrow night), which has been a lot of fun.
  4. I remain a huge fan of Lords of Shadow. I’m not particularly enameled of the sequel, but the first game is a real gem, a fusion of quality action gameplay and art direction combining PJs LotR, del Toro’s monster sensibilities, and old school Castlevania.
  5. Mondo has the 2 LP Symphony of the Night release available. Just in time for the Netflix show and Requiem on the PS4.

    Charleston, SC

    I’d stay on the city side of Charleston (not in North Charleston). The town is well known for their cuisine, especially shrimp. Husk and Fleet Landing are great and reasonably priced. Over in Mount Pleasant (where Patriots Point is located), there is a great local place, long Island Cafe. if time permits, definitely walk the Battery downtown. I’ll engage my folks and try and get more answers for you.

    Parents live there now (retired). I lived there from 1977 through 1985. Love it. What are the questions?
  8. Bought, dropping right before Halloween. ‘Been itching for a SotN replay. Rondo is the icing.
  9. Kong is worth doing, and my second favorite ride there right now (I still love Hulk). Not worth an hour, but 20-30 min sounds right. HP train ride is different in each direction, FYI. Have fun!
  10. I thought Apocalypse was genuinely terrible. But Logan was an amazing film. Regarding this merger, I think the bad outweighs the good, but time will tell. If I can get a Mad Mikkelsen DOOM film, then I’ll be happy.
  11. Amazon has this for $60, in stock, for the next 1.5 hours. For the few of you holding out for sticker price, like me
  12. Very likely Black Panther 2. Three year window between the first and sequel, and BP killed in that Feb spot this year.
  13. But that upside is enough for me. They owe him a solid, since he showed up and effing DELIVERED in the PT, whilst surrounded by bad performances, mediocre writing, and not much help. I would like new as well, but I also want Ewan to get to play OW in a film worthy of his performance.

    4K for life......for now.

    Thank you for the clarification. Is there any quality drop in the audio? I’ve been eyeballing some on-sale receivers from 2017, so I may just snag one on a credit card. See some deals around $400 for a decent Pioneer. I only have 5.1 speakers, and no interest in adding any.
