    Also saw that The Godfather 3 - Coda, The Death of Michael Corleone is now on Showtime.

    I watched it when it came out, and enjoyed some of the changes, but overall not a huge deal. I know some were down on part 3, but I enjoyed even if it's not on the level of 1 and 2.
    I finally watched this last night. I always thought Godfather III was poorly edited and seemed rather jumbled and incoherent, and some of the movie just doesn't make sense. This new edit fixes some of those problems and makes it easier to follow. It's still not in the same league with the first two and its plot is a bit contrived and murky, but it's worth the watch.

    No amount of editing can fix Sofia Coppola's acting, though. I know it's SOP to dump on her for her acting in the film, but holy cow, she really is bad. I don't think I'd paid much attention the first time I saw it years ago, but when I watched it again last night I couldn't stop noticing just how bad she was. Watching her in one-on-one scenes with the great Pacino was just painful. I'm betting he was thinking of having her whacked or wishing her death could come earlier in the movie. My wife's comment on it was, "I do a better acting job than THAT when we're having sex."

    Watched North Dakota State win their 9th title in 11 years.

    Depressing that we can't get an invite to FBS. The struggle of being a flagship or land grant in the rural/low population states.
    Your fanbase isn't represented in a metro TV market so you can get an invite to fbs.
    You aren't in fertile recruiting grounds so no conference will overlook the lack of a bona fide metro.
    Your fanbase gets bored playing against teacher colleges that are D1 for one reason and one only, BASKETBALL.

    I binged Cobra Kai S4 one night last week too. I still enjoy it, although I was crazy into the movies as a kid in the 80s. Probably watched the first two on VHS a couple dozen times each as a kid. Really wanted to take karate classes back then, but closest dojo/teachers were too far from our town.

    Spoilers from S4 and some assumptions about S5:
    SPOILER So following the tournament loss it looks like Johnny and Daniel will find a loophole to continue teaching karate by using surrogate teachers in Chozen and I'm assuming a reformed Kreese? I'm on board for Chozen, the S3 cameo was great. I'm not sold on a reformed Kreese right now...I get that they've been planting the seed for awhile, but I just don't see it. I don't think every character can be redeemable, and I don't think Kreese works that way. It'll be interesting to see them try it anyway. I expect Silver and a returning Barnes to head up Cobra Kai dojos. Silver really didn't work as a 2nd banana to Kreese, I was glad he made his swerve at the end and went all nuts.

    Just watched the new season of Cobra Kai. It’s still a very fun show that doesn’t take itself too seriously while still having some compelling characters. And of course karate.

    We watched Disney's Jungle Cruise last night. It was corny as expected but some of the movie was better than I thought.

    Jim Gaffigan Comedy Monster on Netflix. Not his best work ever. had some poor transitions, covid jokes im sure hit or miss/fall flat as everyones heard or seen a meme at this point. He did have some good zings about marching band that are topical for ND's bowl game that I think were pretty spot on. Overall he makes you laugh and thats the point.

    lol at least in over the course of whole seasons on Oak Island you have physical proof that something strange and unique did happen there. They certainly have found a way to drag very little new information and repititive searcher tasks into multiple seasons and episodes though. We typically either fast forward through alot of the fluff or fall asleep in our chairs while watching. Skinwalker Ranch is just bad bad.

    Every episode... "Is THIS the location of the legendary money pit???"

    No, but they DID find a scrap of wood in a core sample that doesn't match the type of wood that should be in that location! It means the Templars left treasure chests made of wood there! Now we just need to find out why they moved them from this theoretical location to a DIFFERENT theoretical location, and then we need to get more heavy equipment in to drill a deep core sample at THAT location.

    It got to the point where I could walk through the room while she was watching, and I could tell her what the narrator was going to say after the next commercial break was over.
    We have a good laugh every time they cut scene and go to the illustrations and the narrator tries to make the smallest smallest thing sound like its been the key to all their misfortunes.

    A grey round stone in the corner of the island?

    Could it be similar to other grey round stones found elsewhere on Oak Island?

    Or what about the grey round stones found in Europe during the Crusades of 1650?

    Lol my wife got roped in season 1. after 1.5 episodes I said nope she stuck the season out and I asked at the end of they found anything or if she believed it and said she didn't want to talk about it. Safe to say she wasn't a season 2 watcher.

    The Matrix: Resurrections certainly was not subtle!

    The whole movie was basically a 'F*ck You' from Lana Wachowski to the bros who stole the 'red pill' narrative, as well as Warner Bros and the entertainment industry in general...

    It shat all over the ideas of reboots and sequels, purposely made some ridiculous changes to this new 'loop' in the Matrix for the lulz, generally told the audience 'you don't know what you really want from a new Matrix movie,' outlined that the Matrix is really just an epic love story, and then (again) beat everyone over the head with its symbolism about growth and change through resurrection/rebirth/renewal... and did it all while still turning in a pretty decent action movie.

    Nowhere near as good as the original, but the original Matrix film was an EXPERIENCE. Maybe the most impactful first viewing I've ever had of a movie? Just crazy entertainment, mind-blowing story that's complex but not TOO complex (that didn't happen until the sequels), amazing goosebumps moments, great cast, etc. etc.

    This was a good, entertaining movie that does a better job of holding up that I would have expected, honestly... but Wachowski would probably tell you that the comparison of this one to the original not being apples-to-apples, and not being that important at all, is kind of the point.

    Watched "Don't Look Up" (Netflix) last night. Thought it was pretty good. Satirical comedy on politics and the media while the planet is about to get wiped out. Solid cast with DeCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, and Jonah Hill.

    Had to look it up to figure out who you were talking about. I don't think I've ever seen him act. I see Sam Elliot is in it. He has a great voice, but I have always thought he was a mediocre actor at best. I do like Yellowstone, so I'll check it out.

Great cast and some really cool, though brief, cameos from Tom Hanks and Billy Bob Thornton so far. Major violence as expected. So far, it's very good.

    Yellowstone is good but too over the top at times and a couple characters just drive you bat shot with how dumb either their characters are or how dumb their development is
    Some of that improves as the series goes along. Not all, but it gets better. I agree that character development could be better. Some of the characters are cartoonishly over the top. Still, a good show and one of my favorites.

    My marriage has moved past the point where we have to watch things together. I think it comes with middle age. This show, however, we've been watching together but I initiated the start of the first season.

    Almost done with S3. Two more episodes left. Third season might be the best yet. Tony Shalhoub and Kevin Pollack are hilarious.

    It's really really good. Season 4 coming in February.

    I watched it over several days hoping it would finally take off and it never did. Too many scenes that didn't have any purpose IMO.

    I watched The Beatles: Get Back this weekend. I can't say enough good stuff about it. It's a 3-part 7+ hour documentary by Peter Jackson of LOTR fame, and so well done. It's just high quality footage of the Beatles and their inner circle during a month of writing, rehearsing, and recording what would become the Let It Be album and the Rooftop Concert. You get a great view into their relationships with each other, how they worked together, how a song evolves, how an album gets recorded, and a much more realistic look at what they were like as individuals and as a group than anything I've ever seen before.

    I was under the impression that by this point, they were dysfunctional and angry at each other and unable to work together. Far from it. George was frustrated with Paul to some extent for being too dismissive of his ideas and walked out on the band for a few days, but John & Paul were still clearly close and having a lot of fun together. Lennon comes across as much funnier and more lighthearted than expected and impressed me as a much better guitarist than I'd realized. It was very cool to watch several famous songs be born and develop from a rough idea into a masterpiece. You even hear the rough beginnings of Something and a couple of other songs that wouldn't appear until the next album, Abbey Road.

    One thing that really struck me was how difficult all of this must be for McCartney to watch today. This isn't a staged bit of acting, and it's not some grainy black & white video of The Beatles waving to a crowd. This is high quality, in color, extended moments of Paul and John, George, Ringo, Paul's late wife Linda, and other friends sitting face to face working together, laughing, swapping jokes and stories, etc. It's watching Paul & John waste an inordinate amount of time just being silly and trying to make each other laugh or bounce ideas off each other. This is real life intimacy with your brother and best friend, and your late wife. This was very real and personal. Had to be emotionally tough on Paul to watch this and remember those moments and how much he misses those people.

    Anyway, if you haven't watched it, it's absolutely outstanding and well worth the 7 1/2 hours. If you're a Beatles fan, it's priceless. If you're not, it's still well worth watching.
    George was a hidden talent. After they broke up and we were able to see what George could do, I would rank Paul as the third best song writer of the three. Originally John didn't want George as part of the Beatles. He felt he was too young (just two years younger...lol). Paul had to convince John to give him a try.

The episodes were good and there were a few very good things in the story, but they hardly touched on a couple of plotlines and popular characters. Hopefully they'll get around to those things/people soon enough.

    Let me add something. You know how you sometimes see a situation or someone being an asshat and you think of all the stuff you'd like to do to them or all the ways they should learn a lesson the hard way, but you can't really get away with doing that stuff so you don't? Well, in Yellowstone they do. There are some epic revenge, payback, "I tried to warn you," you just ****** with the wrong person, stupid games/stupid prizes moments. Just about every episode has a stupid prize award ceremony.

    My wife describes Yellowstone as Game Of Thrones on a Montana ranch. I'm not sure I really agree, but she's not entirely wrong. Costner is about the 6th or 7th generation owner of one of the largest ranches in the US. He's pressured from every side as land developers, the local Indian reservation, the government, Yellowstone Park, the conservationists, and just about everyone else wants to push him off his land and disrupt his way of life. His wife has been dead for years and he's dealing with his four adult children. Lot's of family drama, political intrigue, and violence. The character development, writing, acting, and cinematography are all excellent. Lots of subplots and storylines involving the ranch hands and all the family members, lots of backstories that slowly, but eventually get revealed, and some major bad blood between some family members... for good reason. There are very few two-dimensional characters. Just about everyone has some depth and character development. Every episode peels back a layer of the onion and shows you something that makes you go, "Ahhh! OK, now I understand." It's one of my favorite shows ever. Really well done across the board. It probably won't get you all the way through the winter, though. It's currently nearing the half-way point of season 4 and there are only about 10 episodes per season.

    Tiger King 2 was alright, I guess. I think they all should be locked up for animal cruelty honestly, but whatevers.

    So, we’re looking for a winter series to dive into. Per this board’s suggestion, think I have her talked into Yellowstone. Probably going to start tomorrow assuming I can duck out of Thanksgiving.

    Without me having to read back…can someone just sum up what I’m getting into? Is this an Ozarks type show, because that lost my interest. Fast paced, wait and it’ll get better, how long is it, etc…without spoiling, you know?

    Or, I’m open to other suggestions too.

    many thanks!!

    Don’t think I’ve watched a Kevin Costner flick/show since he turned the lights out in Baltimore

    Yeah the US Civil War and WW1 were similar in that regard with weaponry and tech advancing beyond the tactics of the day. Led to a lot loss of life.

    I'll look for this doc, thanks.

You could see this was a transitional war as they still relied heavily on horses and wagons and used trenches, yet tanks were introduced and the Germans were using submarines. If you're a war buff, you might find it interesting.
