I really liked the idea of the General Movie Chat thread, so I thought I'd start a similar one up here for shows/movies on streaming channels. It's a little redundant, but I get conflicted whether something I watch on Netflix is "TV" or a movie, so I like having this new space for it.
I recently started Altered Carbon on Netflix. It's kind of a mix between Blade Runner, the Matrix series and some other sci-fi shows. As much as I love the concept, there's something weird about the show itself that seems to be making me and my partner both fall asleep during virtually every episode lol. I know that's not a good review for it - I actually think people may enjoy it.
I'm also watching a new show on Amazon called Absentia, starring Stana Katic from Castle. This one actually keeps me awake for whatever reason. It's about an FBI agent who disappears for 6 years but comes back and tries to solve the mystery of who kidnapped her - but everyone seems to think she is the actual criminal and kidnapped herself. Pretty intriguing but I don't see how they can sustain this for multiple seasons.
I'm planning to watch a new sci-fi movie on Netflix called Mute. It's received absolutely horrible reviews but that won't stop me. It's got Alexander Skaarsgard, Paul Rudd, Sam Rockwell and Justin Theroux so they could basically sit around doing nothing and I'd still watch it.
P.S. Also if anyone else likes to watch (bad) horror movies, I'm also free to discuss those cuz I watch a bunch of them.
