    What series are you watching ?

    You think so? I dont think it is a good adaptation. Characters were changed for the worse without any legitimate reason, the philosophical clash of Western individualism and Eastern collectivism and the principles of karma and duty were almost completely ignored or simplified and dumbed down...

    Youve just missed the hype phase, it was all over the net when season 3 started and everyone was caught up. 1712141024 Shogun By far worst episode so far, it is really not a good adaption but the production value is so high that it is still entertaining, intellectually still significantly...

    I am at episode 6, dont know about peak but really good so far, I read though that it is pretty dumbed down and that the novel is actually peak sci-fi... 1711793108 Caught up with Shogun, really good production, the cinematography and sound design are extraordinary. Plot-wise the novel is still...

    What was the last movie you watched?

    As long as they milk something good and the milking is good, I don´t think there is an issue since on the creative side you have people that still want to continue, as far as I understand it was pushed by Villeneuve. The issue becomes when studios push projects for a franchise ahead based on...

    What kind you want? Btw, yeah mood for love is actually great I agree. Before series is recommended. I guess you are looking for romance? My favorite ones besides mood and before trilogy off the top of my head: If Beale Street could talk Portrait of a lady on fire Pride and Prejudice 2005...
