#InToTheBadlands AMC's goal for "Into the Badlands" was twofold: produce a compelling character drama, and introduce the highest caliber of martial arts filmmaking to a weekly, ongoing series. Left in the hands of creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar ("Shanghai Noon," "Smallville"), the series stars Daniel Wu as ruthless, prodigiously skilled warrior Sunny, who mentors teenage boy M.K. during a spiritual journey across a feudal civilization known as the Badlands. With the help of trained assassins like Sunny, the area is ruled by rival barons, and for decades Quinn has consistently outflanked and outmaneuvered his fellow barons to keep the upper hand. His invincibility, however, begins to fade in light of brazen attacks by the newest baron, The Widow, who believes M.K. is the key to her success. As the battle for control of the Badlands heats up, the destinies of the stoic assassin and the impetuous teenager become intertwined. #AMC#Netflix#Series#Show#Movies#TvShows#Crime#SocialMediaMovies#SMM
#FearTheWalkingDead A sign of the apocalypse has begun. Reports of a rapidly changing world for unknown reasons underscore this gritty drama, a prequel to AMC's uber-popular "Walking Dead." The story is told through the lens of high school guidance counselor Madison Clark. The widowed mother is raising two children single-handedly and maintains a relationship with English teacher Travis Manawa, her apocalyptic partner. The challenge of blending their families is exacerbated by unforeseen chaos, and a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold #AMC#Netflix#Series#Show#Movies#TvShows#Crime#SocialMediaMovies#SMM
Vertigo (1958) Scottie: Don't you think it's a waste, to wander separately?
Madeleine: Only one is a wanderer. Two together are always going somewhere.
Scottie: No, I don't think that's necessarily true.

THIS IS A SPOILER-FREE REVIEW
Star Wars The Last Jedi is the newest addition to a saga that, after 40 years since the release of A New Hope in 1977, shows no sign of slowing down.
The Last Jedi picks off where The Force Awakens left us with Rey (Daisy Ridley) seeking help from the legendary Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill in his best portrayal of the saga) who has shut himself down from the universe while General Leia Organa (Carrie Fischer) is leading a small group of Resistance fighters against the First Order.
The latter with the mysterious Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) at the helm believe they have the Resistance cornered while his puppet Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is still struggling with inner conflict.
Oscar Isaac is back as Poe Dameron and for lack of a better term, he is absolutely bad-ass. Finn, again brilliantly played by John Boyega, finds himself on his own type of adventure with a new ally in Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran). The Finn and Rose storyline was the only thing that bothered me - simply because it felt like a a short film weaved into the full story... The Last Jedi is directed by Rian Johnson who made Brick and the seriously underrated Looper.
Considering that he had to take the reins of a franchise where directors mostly must stick to a certain formula, he did a masterful job of leaving his own unique stamp.
Once the famous opening crawl clears it is evident that Johnson brought a visual element that is handled eloquently and almost mesmerizing and not just a bunch of CGI (I'm looking at you prequels). It’s clear that he knows how to film stunning action set pieces and he balances it all with well-timed humor and intriguing dialogue.
Unlike The Fast and the Furious franchise, where after eight films you wish they would slam on the breaks, Star Wars Episode 8 left me down on my knees begging for more.
Verdict: Filled with surprises and more than enough to justify it’s run-time of 02h30, The Last Jedi is not only a worthy successor to The Force Awakens, but it might just be the best one yet.
This is something I had to go see... Alien Ant Farm!! I grew up listening to these guys and to see them live was pretty dope!! Gives me inspiration to start going to more shows and hopefully have my own shows 😜 Thanks @loulagoon for joining me! #alienantfarm#slidebar#concert#dtf#smoothcriminal#movies
