As far as I can tell, Legends is far superior from a curiosity point of view. It at least tries to be believable.

The only new Star Wars movie I like was Rogue One, and only the 3rd act.

My brother recommended The Expanse, but I don't trust his judgement on entertainment, and I can't be arsed at the moment.

I've had it recommended to me as well. I have Leviathan Wakes, but can't get into it. Characters aren't compelling. Then I noticed on the cover, "Interplanetary adventure the way it ought to be written." --George R. R. Martin. But I haven't given up on it completely yet.

I read Leviathan Wakes. It was ok but I haven't been able to get into Caliban's War. I did like the premise but not the bad guy(s). I'll give it a solid meh++. Are you a Walking Dead fan?

The first few episodes of the show were dumb.

The "TV" series diverges from the books, at least in timeline. I'm mainly wanting to give the books a chance before seeing if the show is any better.

I've only seen one small scene. People hiding behind chain-link fence. I only watched a few minutes before moving on. That was quite a few years ago, and I think it was a rerun then. All zombie movies look dumb. The only one I can recall having turned out to be an exception that was a good movie despite the zombie theme was Pontypool.

Spoiler alert:

Try something else then. It's a cross between the Flood in Halo and zombies.

Other than knowing that was/is an FPS style game, I don't know anything else about it, so that doesn't spoil much for me :). I've almost moved completely beyond watching shows. Amazon announced an increase to $120 for Prime, so I'm most likely not going to renew. I haven't watched anything on it in quite a while and I've gone almost a year without a TV.

Wouldn't you rather talk about pubic grooming faux pas?

If you're feeling the overwhelming urge to do so, please start a new thread. You probably do it professionally.

Weren't you a personal butler or somesuch?

I guess he doesn't know what faux pas means.

The hardest was the word for just that in latin...which I cannot remember!

Joker origins movie.

Posting it here because I'm not sure where else it falls. Although definitely not saying I'll not watch but does raise the question: Who asked for it?

https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/joker-release-date-joaquin-phoenix-origins-movie-title-dc-warner-bros-a8454306.html

Joaquin Phoenix is occasionally good.

Update : https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-6194541/Joaquin-Phoenix-seen-time-clown-makeup-play-Joker-2019-movie.html

So far looks promising.
