Hmm I actually watched a lot of rewatches recently. My sister hasn’t seen some movies so we watched First Fight, Gemini Man, and Ready or Not. All of which I enjoyed the first time around and the second time around.
I’ve been grinding my way through The Mentalist I just hit season 5 or 7. I’m over the hump. I definitely feel like the Red John thing has been handled poorly both stretched too long and not even enough time. I mean I watched a 24 episode Season 4 and there were TWO episodes that touched on Red John and they were the season finale. I feel like if you have that many episode you should be able to sneak in tidbits and such. I kinda feel like we should have finished Red John by the end of season 4. Maybe find him by the end of Season 3 and then finish him by 4. Get a brand new serial killer for the rest of the show. Sorta Dexterish without the predictability of the end of season kills.
I’m 1/3 of the way through my reading challenge for the year so I’m off to a strong start. I finally started the Artemis Fowl Series. a) I get the appeal now. I understand why it was so hype and b) I understand why they’re making a movie of this. It’s good. I just finished this utter slog of a book by Stephen King called A Good Marriage. It was actually two books. The first one (AGM) was good. What I expected from King. The second was longer than the actual book and it was a brutal slog of everything I don’t want to read, I picked up this book called Ace of Spades because this other book I was going to read someone said "this is trying to be Ace of Spades so I figured I’d read it first. I see what people like about it. Not sure it’s my speed but I also am slightly curious how they get out of the
minor spoiler for the book
magic trap the main characters are both in
There’s some aspects of the book that just don’t make any sort of logical sense. But at the same time it’s fantasy. I’ve seen and read much worse.
