Only watched it once, and it was a long time ago, so I don't have specific critiques, but, in-short, no! I remember wanting to like it, but failing to maintain interest in it. Not suggesting it was objectively bad or anything; just didn't do 'it', for me.
I'll grant that several episodes were kinda filler. I wasn't a big fan of hoq they handled McNulty throughout. But Idris Elba and several others delivered solid performances, and when it was good, it was great. Jamie Hector did an amazing job with Marlow; the body language is fantastic.
I'm not expecting F-bombs and bloody hardcore matches on TNT, but I'm hoping for a more 'sports-like' presentation than we usually get from WWE.
If you've seen the Cruiserweight Classic WWE did a few years back, that's the kind of presentation I'd love to see on a regular basis: No goofy...
^Double or Nothing was a solid showand from what I've read, so was Fyter Fest. I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with their weekly show this Fall. They're well timed, particularly given the state of affairs in WWE these last several months/years.
Anyway, there hasn't been this level of...
Midway through Star Trek DS9. The first season is pretty bland (and claustrophobic; I defy anyone to find a shot that isn't mostly wall, mere feet behind the subjects), but it started to pick up through season two, and season three was pretty solid. Just started season four. Worf, finally!
As for Predators, I couldn't stand Adrian Brody's lead, and the supporting cast - despite having a few gems; Goggins, Ali, Trejo) wasn't good enough to make up for how awful he was. I liked the concept okay, but it fell apart in the execution. It should have been so much better.
Heat is one that may not fair as well when held to contemporary standards, but, in its time, it was pretty friggin' awesome. Granted that there is very little *shared* screen time between DeNiro and Pacino, but that diner scene alone was worth the price of admission, especially considering it's...
^I thought it was solid. I was bracing myself to dislike it per the 'Trish has powers' storyline (I really don't like the character and/or the actress; she stunk up the first two seasons) but they did alright with it. I was on the fence after the first two episodes, but by mid-season I was...
In my case, Ableton is my primary point of reference. Been using it since version 6.
Honestly never heard of the other stuff. Will have to look into it. However, MIDI being what it is, I expect the same principle is roughly applicable. Also, the screenshot you posted sure looks like a "DAW"...
True, though - depending on the DAW - there can be conflicts, where various CC's are hard-coded to DAW functions, so you end up with funny situations where you program one thing, but the control does two things. Whee! :lol:
I'd agree on murkiness, hence caveat about 'subject to change'. ;)
The original two get a fair amount of status (from me) for how they related to the time, IE, without them, who knows if we'd have ever gotten decent comic book movies that didn't include Batman. Granted they haven't aged super...
I'd still keep X:OW on the bottom (it's only saving grace was the opening sequence), but yeah, I'd probably edge X3 just above Apoc. IMHO (and subject to change every 5 minutes):
I thought First Class was solid, DoFP wasn't half as good as it should have been, and Apocalypse was a dumpster fire. Fox should have kept working with Vaughn. I have zero interest in watching the disinterested cast phone it in through another unnecessarily-rushed Dark Phoenix.
