I'd agree, but holy poo man.

I mean, you're on point exactly. They're posting videos where the russians have already been scattered, but Mr. Balloon says B12, and it's a bomb up the ass.

I suppose that's war laid bare, there's no heroics to it, just kill the other guy while he's trying to light his last cigarette.

Drone drops and Ryan Reynolds.

I'm honestly mad at Mr. Handsome. I'd like him to actually act again, like in Smokin' Aces, but instead he's found a niche.

Consciousness is not detached from bodily experience, so you can build all the robots and computers you like, but there's a limit to what can be imitated.  Running on rocky beaches or licking a maple walnut ice cream cone are experiences that fundamentally change how you view and interact with the world.  Even the jerk who cut you off in traffic -- the endless varieties of bodily experience shape consciousness in ways that no biologically based machine model can replicate.  I liked the idea of "glorified pattern matching," although it's probably more complicated than that, but I'm so ignorant of such matters, how the machine based logic can build on itself so as to "learn" how to do things better.  A friend was in grad school working on "teaching computers how to see."  I expect that it had a great deal to do with "pattern matching" so using cues like light and dark patches to determine depth and 3D surfaces probably was at the base of it.

That said, I had to look up Ryan Reynolds.  I got sucked down a rabbit hole reading an article describing how he and his wife had just had their 4th child and are totally into being parents.  I had no idea who he was.  So maybe a robot would be better at keeping up with such stuff.

I read the synopsis, it's very similar to cabin in the woods. I'm surprised anyone would make something so close to an already existing and better movie.

And THAT movie did a better job of it. Made the audience complicit.

Knock at the cabin is bless'ed Signs 2.

Watched IMDb: Gerald's Game last night and I can quite honestly say there were times I had to pull the quilt up to my nose and peek over the top. There's also a very well filmed and extremely gory bit that was excruciating to watch.

Just finished watching Extraction 2, and can I just say I will be watching Extraction 3, 4, 5, 6 and so on.

I think my sentiment says it all.

For an extra point, we were trying to estimate how many shots were fired during that film. My wife settled on 10,000 while TNG was more around the 3, 4k region. I reckon 7,000. I mean, one shoot out was 21 minutes long.

Yep Extraction 2  was entertaining.  :)
The Finish did suggest a few more movies were on the way

Sounds like the A Team.

... especially if no-one actually got hit by any.

There were a few casualties, the main one being any sense of reality.

It was indeed overkill and underkill at the same time

Great fun, tho'.
