Found a good B-movie with vampires and Alchemy on Amazon Prime. It's called Old Blood.

I've just watched The Raid 1 and 2 on consecutive days, and hoo boy, they are definitely one of the best action films I've ever watched (definitely up there with John Wick, MI franchise and etc...). The Raid franchise also have the BEST knife fight scenes I've ever seen, and I've seen tons of action films and such.

@Nighteyes If you're a fan of the raid, I'd recommend checking out the film, "The Night Comes for Us". It starred Iko Uwais and Joe Taslim, Iko Uwai's The Raid co-star (although in this film Joe Taslim played as the main protagonist). The story revolved around a Triad ex-assassin saving a little girl, it involved lots of intense and gory action scenes, which although may not be as explicitly great as The Raid, does came close (with a similar flavor as well).  8)

Binged “The Umbrella Academy” on Netflix over the last few days. Loved every minute. So much fun.

Pretty bad movie. I watched it because... book. But it just didn’t match up in tone.
That said, I think it was fairly true to the plot.

Just got back from seeing Captain Marvel in the theater. As always, Marvel does excellent movies. Really enjoyed it!

And now I want a spin-off where Agents Fury, Coulson, and May investigate X-Files in the 90s (May was not in the movie, sadly, but young Coulson was!)

I gave up after 4 episodes. The dark brooding shots, long pauses and the annoying violin background we're a bit too much for me. The first 3 episodes had enough content for a single one. Rest were fillers.

Soundtrack is awesome though.

Already two episodes into season 2 of American Gods. You can see that the writing has changed from the first season, and although these two were a bit slow, I'm enjoying them - and can't wait for these new Old Gods to show their power  :D
