  1. I loved how consistent the show's internal logic was right up to the end. The finale wasn't necessarily predictable but everything that happened made sense without being a cop out or being out of character for the people involved.

    For instance:

    Boon misses in the duel because he's flashy and always tries for head shots but Raylan always shoots for the heart because that's how he was taught at Glencoe. So he wins.

    Raylan won't betray Ava because he knows what having an asshole outlaw for a father will do to her son.

    It managed to both come full circle and have it's characters break the cycles they were in. I thought it was great.

  2. In my defence I meant Casino Royale levels of shaky-cam rather than Quantum of Solace levels. I just don't feel the fights in this so far so it I don't find it believable when DD's supposedly beating the hell out of someone.

  3. I'm two episodes in and I'm not really feeling it. It's a combination of things really but I think they all tie back to it being a Netflix show and it maybe just missing that extra bit of time, budget and polish. Also possibly better supporting actors. Dawson and Cox work well together but the mook from the Mighty Ducks they've got playing Foggy? Jeez.

    The fights are alright, probably the best part of the show so far, but DD's fighting style just doesn't feel like a convincing, cohesive whole to me... maybe it'll come together later and this is some kind of Batman Begins learning deal. Also it's really obvious when they're pulling the punches in the choreography; perhaps some Bourne style shaky-cam might have improved things and covered it up.

  4. And it's hard. Oh my is it hard. That final picture above is the first boss I've come across (although I suspect he's the second, as I didn't pick up all the bits of the altar needed for the first) and he's nails.

    Isn't that the boss form of Grant from Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse? Does the game do character switching like that title?

  5. Silly question, and one with possible spoilers for Secret Wars/Avengers:

    I know Ultimate Mr Fantastic was revealed as the bad guy in Ultimate Doomsday but did we ever get an explanation as to

    why he was suddenly a batshit insane megalomaniac? Or was it just one of those things that happened like all of Ultimatum?

    The bit where Raylan throws him his keys made me spit my coffee out. Fucking genius.

    Loved this week's episode. It just felt like they had the Elmore Leonard dialogue machine set to 11.

  7. Well she's worth $2.9 billion dollars, she hadn't acted for 15 years until The Butler and it took twelve months to convince her to take that role because she was terrified of embarrassing herself. Even then she only did it because of the director's persistence and the political relevance of the part.

    She's too rich and too savvy to let herself get stunt-cast in a C-list super-hero movie. At the very least Oprah the brand is too important for her to do it.

  8. No, sorry - the one that Malvo told the police officer when he was pretending to be a vicar.

    Edit - yep that's the one (above). So why did he tell Malvo he had solved it, over a year later? What was the significance of it?

    Well, to be honest Molly solved it, I think Gus just realised what it meant in the context of Malvo's relationship with people.

    "Because of predators. Used to be we were monkeys, right? And in the woods, in the jungle, everything is green, so in order to not get eaten by panthers and bears and the like, we had to be able to see them in grass and trees and such.”

    Malvo preyed upon people. It was his nature and how he saw himself. Thanks to Molly solving the riddle Gus understood that and ended the threat before Malvo could prey upon Molly and his daughter.

    He saw the predator.
