I have high hopes for State of Decay 2. Plus it is included with Game Pass so I don't even need to buy it.

Game Pass is just killing their sales though. They barely sold any copies of Sea of Thieves as a result. I would be a little miffed if I was Rare or Undead Labs because you will never meet your target sales goals for your bonus while they are giving away your game to half a million people.

I may get State of Decay 2 (PC) depending on the reviews and will likely see Deadpool this weekend. May Avengers: Infinity War, depending on which one is less busy and I can get tickets for it using Moviepass.

State of Decaying Poo and Sea of Sameness didn't lose sales because they ended up on GamePass. They ended up on GamePass because Microsoft realized they were total duds no one would give a rat's ass about.

Looks pretty good to me. From what I see, the big holdup is that he kills kids? Um... there are like thousands and thousands of movies where the main plot is that some serial killer has kidnapped a kid or killed some kids and now people are getting all high and mighty because this director actually shows you some of that violence on the screen? That's pretty hypocritical.

I'm not saying I actually want to see that, it seems a bit on the gruesome side even for a horror movie fan, I'm just saying that violence against children is a central plot point for tons of movies.

Anyone else watch the 10 episode Lost in Space reboot on Netflix? It's a solid C+. There's a lot of dopey stuff and very predictable moments. The only actor to consistently bother me was the mother and the bullshit obviously feminist inspired writing surrounding the relationship with her soldier husband. It was unfair and she was constantly fucking up, but everyone else had to apologize to her for some reason. The father was good, Will Robinson was good, Don West was really good, and I even liked the new robot. Their new take on Dr. Smith grew on me and by the end it's clear she is a mentally disturbed sociopath. Trying to figure out her motivations is pointless and frustrating. She's just a crazy bitch. Overall I enjoyed it enough to watch a second season if it happens. It had a lot of the same vibes as the early 90s show Earth 2, for anyone who remembers that one.

I didn't care for it. I thought it was kinda dull and the robot looked like nothing special. I mean, the price was right so I'll watch a second season if they do one, but I was hoping for a lot more.

Oh, I thought that was already out. I've had it for a couple of weeks.

I don't know if I want State of Decay 2, I couldn't get into the first one. But I know people who loved it. I don't want Gamepass because I like to own games, so basically I'm undecided on it. Still enjoying Far Cry 5, looking forward to the DLC. It may be the first game this generation that I get all the achievements for!

I'll see Deadpool 2 on Monday, avoiding the crowds.

I watched a movie last night that came out a couple days ago digitally, named "Revenge."

It was crazy as hell, I have to recommend it if you like R rated horror/action/revenge films.

As is usually the case, i dont understand the weird arbitrary line between fictional violence against adults verses fictional violence against children. If youre okay with fake because its fake... what does it matter who the fake recipiet of violence is? Its just as fake.

My only concern would be the cety real actir who has tobact out those scenarios. If the are legitimately underage and are legitinateky having to go through adult situations than that is a problem. But just the idea of it? Why is that an arbitrary line?

And keep in mind that the entire plot to season 1 of SyFy’s Happy is children being kidnapped to be sold as sex slaves to billionaires. So, there is that.

Just got back. Starts a bit slow/muddled, but gets quite good. Really enjoyed it. Stay through the end credits!

We always do. It is funny that the expectation now on most movies is that there is an end credits scene.
