  1. Normally, adding a new actor in the final episode of the season and making them the protagonist of it shouldn’t work but adult Bobby in this totally did. He provided closure to the plot point of Mr Jingles begrudgingly leaving him as a baby to keep him safe. Also using an AHS alum means the audience is already accustomed to seeing him in the show. While I was disappointed at not seeing the final big festival that they have been building up towards we at least got to see Kajagoogoo in the last episode perform their one hit. Too many innocent people have died already at that camp so I am glad that Margaret didn’t get to have another victory. This season has made me more comfortable with the fact that Matthew Morrison has an Emmy nomination for lead actor in a Comedy. His delivery of Trevors deadpan humor was very good. I loved that he complemented Bruce’s “ bitchin stache” before kicking him beyond the camp boundaries.
  2. So the “ casting” of a CGI James Dean brings up some interesting implications. If it’s success, up and coming actors may soon not only have to complete with living names for Plum roles but with legends who died decades ago. CGI creations have been the headliners of movies for ages. I mean no one went to see Jurassic Park for the humans ( as good as they where), but this is different. CGI up until now was about making the impossible possible on screen. You can’t get a real dinosaur to be in your movie but you can cast one of thousands of 20 something trained and talented actors to play this role they want CGI James dean for. It seems Unnecessary.
  3. The scene with the “ baseball boy” will haunt me for a while. It was an important plot point and I admire the boldness of not hold back on showing the violence like most horror films involving kid victims do. But man it was hard to watch!
  4. Trevor: First base never felt so good Chet: You only kissed ? Trevor: Of course not Chet: That’s what first base means Trevor: Maybe to you
  5. The three jingle impersonators where not camp counsellors though, they where some townies, but they became ghosts. Mr Jingles wasn’t one either but I guess his mothers hatred of him tied him into her curse. Dr Hopple and Richard Ramirez ( Satan brought him back) not becoming ghosts fits the pattern though.
  6. Also spousal privilege doesn’t apply when one spouse is accused of a crime against the other. Margaret intentionally tried to murder Trevor and very nearly succeeded. He can never be denied the right to seek justice.
  7. He has his pre Redwood life, like the condo that appeared in the TV show. The stab injuries probably ended his aerobic instructor career though.
  8. I am confused about the arrangement between Trevor and Margaret. In the flashback to the hospital room, Trevor states that he wanted to turn Margaret over to the police but then realised that her money will ensure her immunity from any consequences. He then blackmails her, money in exchange for his silence. Back in 1989 Trevor proclaims that he doesn’t need the fancy stuff and “ would rather die than be indebted to her” during the their fight. But he isn’t indebted to her, it was a mutual arrangement. He can literally just walk out anytime and call the cops on her. He can later sell as many high priced items as he can pile into the Bentley for money to get back on his feet. Something didn’t make sense.
  9. This will hold up much better when binged watched. Including next weeks episode, this night be shown over about 3 hours in total without commercials. If you spend an evening in watching it at once then it will feel in real time and more natural.
  10. I thought that Alden Ehrenreich did a great job in Solo. He was able to channel the character without directly imitating Harrison Ford. His reviews where good even though the movie flopped. While he might not, for now, get cast to headline another blockbuster movie, I can’t see why he shouldn’t get opportunities on TV or indies.
  11. Remembering Sacha Baron Cohens rise on Channel 4 during the mid 1990s, I was happy to see his comeback with who is America, after a few lacklustre movies. His unique act is ideal for cable and since he is reliant on the people he is interviewing not recognising him, not reaching super A-list level of fame may be for the best. Also Matthew mcconaugheys mcconaissance has be one of this decades best comebacks even though it has some want cooled off these past couple of years.
  12. Saw it yesterday in England. Overall it’s a solid trip to the cinema, 7/10. Jasmine is the best part about it and one aspect that I think is better than the 1992 original, the part is more fleshed out. She is a feminist in a misogynistic Middle Eastern world. Will Smith wasn’t as bad as I thought he was going to be. The blue make up still looked weird but he works as Aladdin’s mentor/BFF if you picture him as the fresh prince instead of Robin Williams. Aladdin was a great dancer and the choreography, hip hop meets Bollywood, was fun to watch particularly during a party scene at the palace mid film. The animal parts where well done. Iago looked and talked like a real parrot. Rajah was guard like protective of Jasmin and Abu has kleptomania. I didn’t like Jaffa, too soft spoken and boyish looking to be scary in the sense that the cartoon portrayed.
  13. Sterling K Brown who probably not so coincidentally is also in Ryan Murphys universe. I say that because Ryan’s short season anthology tv shows are an ideal time commitment for actors who want to mix TV and movie work. Sarah Paulson is able to do 13 episodes of American Horror Story, film a movie in the hiatus then go right back to her stable job on AHS on top of playing Marcia Clark ect.
  14. The OP asked why do some people want to see the tapes to believe the victim. I think that it’s because upon viewing some may disagree that Weatherlys conduct was sexual harassment. That interpretation is a grey area. Note that I do support the payout, am just thinking out different POVs.
  15. The grey area is that while the perpetrator can admit to saying what he said he can deny to intending it to be sexual abuse but to be light hearted banter. Where an individual draws the line where joking becomes objectionable is subjective.
