What have you watched recently?


Recommended Posts

Couple weeks ago finally finished Ozark.

It’s not the most epic finale, but it’s adequate. I don’t get the hyperbolically bad comments on the ending.

Overall it’s been one of the most solid shows I watched. It really stands out in terms of filmography and consistency.

In the past weeks I went through the whole Rocky saga, all the way to Creed 2, to get ready for the third installment.
Went to see Creed 3 last Monday.

A lot of the marketing hinges around B. Jordan directing this chapter, and I think it shows. It's not that is bad, but you can see he worked to differentiate it from the rest of the films. Way more noticeable after watching all the others back to back, or if you rewatch Creed 1/2 after 3. Unfortunately I don't think this entry hits the right spots and I found it a bit underwhelming.
I wholly agree with this analysis, without spending time typing spoilery content.
I can't remember if it's mentioned, but I don't think the film is not as good because Rocky/Stallone is missing (I think would have been a somewhat different story with him), just the beats/pacing. The whole film feels rushed and cut for Gen-Z attention span. Is like they felt the need to speed it up to compensate for all the early sign-language scenes.

Anyway this run through the saga as given me a renewed appreciation for Stallone, whom I knew had written the Rocky films, but I hadn't realised he also directed them... I think it's pretty amazing he got the chance to write and direct right after his debut. Also he's accomplished and all, but it's annoying he doesn't have more control over the franchise he created.

    • [CS:GO] Shore
      One of the projects I worked on after I made de_austria.

      Yeah, I know the timing is really bad (CS2!), but can't change it... 🙁

      In general a lot went wrong during this project. Had a lot of problems with the layout, but I think I found a good compromise in the end. Also learned many new things. Maybe I would even be ready to create a really good map now after all, but I think that it's gonna be the final one. I really like making maps, but it has become too time consuming over the years for just being a hobby. Unfortunately I never managed to get a job in the games industry. So that's it. I hope it's a worthy ending of 20 years of making maps for me. 🙂

      Shore is a bomb defusal map for CS:GO that takes place on Lofoten Islands, Norway. (Also have a Hostage version of this that works well imo)

      I took some inspiration from this place in Norway:
