Nightstalker - new netflix limited series. probably could have cut it down to 3 episodes if they didn't pad with so many long, extended, and/or slo-mo dramatization re-creations and terrible music. still, was a good retelling by the people that were involved of the feeling in LA and San Fran at the time. i'm sure those LA cops that had worked so long on the case were super irritated that the san fran cop just fell backwards into ramirez. oh, also that then-and-current idiot dianne feinstein completely fucked them and the case.

Heaven's Gate: The Cult Of Cults - HBO mini. tons of insight into the cult from people that were a) there, b) in it, or c) both, as well as member's families, etc. as crazy as you think they were, it was way more than that. very interesting watch.

Your Honor - Bryan Cranston's new SHO show. started watching it, 2.5 episodes in and it's good. he plays a huge piece of shit that has a very good reason for being a piece of shit (where have i seen that before?). his son is a giant fucking dummy, playing the wildcard. i can't believe they haven't had certain conversations, or at least we weren't privy to them if they happened. some next-level assumptions required of the audience so far. but like i said, it's good and enjoyable. great to see the guy who played arnold rothstein on boardwalk empire in another fantastic role. odd to see him cursing so freely, since arnold almost never did, but he is so goddamn menacing every time he's on camera. can't see this situation resolving well for anyone involved.

got caught up on this. holy shit is it crazy. i don't mean "unpredictable" really, as you could see this was going to not go well, but it's like cranston's character was handed a shovel and told to see how deeply he could dig himself a hole. and Michael Stuhlbarg's character (rothstein on boardwalk empire) is fantastic. he's such an underrated, menacing actor. or at least, he plays menacing very well. hope to continue to see him more. not sure how many more episodes there are this season but i'm positive this is all going to blow up in cranston's face.

The Little Things - on paper, this should be fantastic - denzel washington, rami malek, jared leto, among many other fine actors - but in reality it's just a police procedural that goes nowhere, and one you've seen plenty. a well-acted meh.

The Head - this danish show has real deep 'The Thing' vibes. it takes place at an antarctic research station. they even watch 'The Thing' in the first episode. and someone isn't what they say they are. but there's not a lot of gore or practical effects, or horror for that matter. in fact, some people get shot with very little blood, even. it's maddening at times (like, how the fuck is it taking 48h for him to get the entire fucking story?!?!?), and asks a lot of the viewer to believe at times (it didn't occur to anyone shooting it that you should be able to see everyone's breath, pretty much at all times outside?), but it was enjoyable and i hope they do more than the six episodes we got (although, it's pretty self-contained, don't know how you'd continue the story. would have to be a prequel of polaris 5 maybe?). good sort of "what happened here" mystery. sort of 'the thing' mixed with an hercule poirot story. definitely more mystery than horror. it's only six hours, you should check it out if you have hbo.

The Dead Don't Die - Easily my least favorite Jarmusch so far. It's not even close to his better films. What was the point of this? It's not really a satire, it's not really a horror film, it's not really a comedy, it's not really anything other than lots of great actors phoning it in. I mean, Tilda Swinton is always the best in anything she's in and that's true for The Dead Don't Die too. But the movie itself was so completely... pointless?

Psycho Goreman - Yeah, you need to see this. It's the sick brainchild of Steve Kostanski, of The Void fame. Although this is much more like his previous stuff aka wonderfully cheesy practical effects, an absolute bonkers plot and some very good gore. Also, it's HILARIOUS.

EDIT: While checking out Kostanskis IMDB page, I saw that he did the special makeup effects on a few episodes of the new Day of The Dead tv-series on SyFy. There's a Day of the Dead tv-series on SyFy??

Ah, it’s still buy or rent, not streaming. Not spending money at the moment, in the middle of moving.
