I've gotta admit it looks impressive.

Day of the Dead has yet to be topped in the zombie movie department in my opinion.

Season Premiere! Gotta love my girl Arya here. Not much happened this week but I think it did a very fitting job of setting up what to expect this season. I did notice some very conspicuous absences though (unless they died and I forgot).

Beginning was fantastic, with the Freys wiped out. Despite the likely innocent Freys present, still good riddance.

Interesting things going on in Winterfell - I agree more with Jon than I do Sansa on the Karstark and Umber situation, but I do think that Jon needs to be willing to listen to Sansa more (despite her atrocious actions regarding Littlefinger last season).

Wanted to see more of Davos Seaworth, as I think that his guidance could be extremely helpful, but we'll have time for that later.

Stuff with the Hound, Thoros of Myr, and Beric Dondarrion was more filler, but it is sad to see that the Hound is falling to the influence of the Lord of the Light religion. I'll take the Braavosi version of God anytime.

Jaime and Cersei was moderately filler - I don't think much of Euron Greyjoy, but I liked his dig at Cersei and Jaime's incest.

Samwell was mostly more filler, though now that he knows dragonglass can be found on Dragonstone, hopefully Jon will try and talk things out with Daenerys as opposed to attempting to fight her.

Speaking of which, great to see Dani get to Dragonstone* (see below) - as a strong supporter of Daenerys, especially given her advisers, who include some of the wisest in Westoris, it was heart-warming to finally see her touch ground (literally). A slow, drawn-out ending, but fantastically done.

*On a side note, I saw some people complain about how it was unrealistic that Stannis left the castle unmanned - given Stannis' nature, and the mission he partook on, it made sense to me he'd bring all the men he had, given that he didn't have much to begin with.

Not sure if I missed anything - thought it was a decent opener, and while it had obvious filler, great to see some things fall more into place.
Music / Re: Last Song You Listened To

This is likely not the type of music most of you enjoy, but I love the hell out of this song, as depressing as it is (at least in the beginning).

I've not yet seen it - basically, I am trying to watch the MCU material in chronological order, and haven't caught up enough to see this one.

That said, more so than any MCU movie in recent times, this one has gotten me rather excited. Personally, I thought Spider-Man was fantastic in Captain America: Civil War (despite his limited screen presence), and so if this has the same type of joke-telling Spider-Man, I think I'll get a kick out of it when I can get around to it.

Wrote this on Facebook after hearing the news of his death - thought it was appropriate to share:

His film, Night of the Living Dead (1968), was one of the first modern zombie horror movies, and while slow at times, is still a classic that makes every Halloween a bit better.

From 1973, The Crazies was another example of his genius. To my knowledge, this is one of the earliest examples of "infected" undead, as opposed to straight-out zombie. As good as 28 Days Later was, The Crazies has long been a favorite of mine when concerning this small sub-section of zombie flicks.

Dawn of the Dead, from 1978, is a damn fantastic movie. I saw the 2004 remakes years before the original, and I thought that might impact my views when I finally saw this one, but if anything, I enjoyed the 1978 version more. One of the twenty of so horror movies I've given a 10/10. Great movie.

Creepshow (1982) is great campy fun. I don't know if there's a segment of the flick I don't like, and it's considered one of the finest 80's horror movies, rightly so.

While I didn't like Day of the Dead (1985) as much as the two predecessors, it certainly captured the claustrophobic feel the first flick excelled in, the sequel lacking. Had a lower budget feel to it, certainly after the epic that was Dawn of the Dead, but still a perfectly enjoyable movie.

Monkey Shines, from 1988, isn't often discussed in the horror circles I prowl, but it was a fantastically done flick, and though I've seen it only a handful of times, I always thought it didn't get the respect it deserved.

His segment from Due occhi diabolici (1990) was, in my opinion, underwhelming, but I saw this only once, so perhaps a rewatch is in order.

The Dark Half (1993, based off a Stephen King novel) was a pretty solid movie, though grounded in 90's sensibilities. Still a solid watch, though perhaps on the lower spectrum of his directorial works.

As such, I've not seen Martin (1977), though I do own it on VHS. I've also not seen the last three of his "Dead" movies, being Land of the Dead (2005), Diary of the Dead (2007), and Survival of the Dead (2009). I've heard mixed things about each one, but I'm sure in their own right, they're minor gems.

To George A. Romero, many thanks for what you've done for the horror genre. Though the oversaturation of zombie movies can get old at times, it certainly, ironically so, brought life to horror.

Yeah, a hell of a start to the season but then it did kind of petered off. It was still solid, and most season premieres tend to be a bit on the slow side anyhow, so I don't really hold it against them.

Most of the time they seem to have "two" series going on between all the characters in the story, but I think they did a very good job this time around hitting just about all of the main people. I wouldn't be surprised if the next episode or so includes the other missing people into the full arc.

I'm sure that was interesting, were they producing circuit boards or something? I'm working in the science buildings so I do see interesting things, the floors i'm on focus on biology though so there's not much for equipment.

It was for medical equipment. So things like syringes, vials, etc. Kind of funny thinking back on it now, since my line of work is in biopharm.

The only fact that I remember about Shadow is that he likes teh peen.  [*azn*]
I do not like teh Sweeny! [*angry*]
