The Leftovers - HBO
The Leftovers

Quote:

Revolves around mysterious disappearances, world-wide, and specifically follows a group of people who are left behind in the suburban community of Mapleton. They must begin to rebuild their lives after the loss of more than 100 people.



ok. so I'm not entirely certain wtf I just watched. the first episode has given me enough to come back for the next episode, but at the same time has left me baffled as to what exactly is going on.

strangeness aside, show has a pretty cool vibe to it. reminds me a touch of banshee and breaking bad, but that's probably because of where it's set than anything else.

anyone else give it a look?

Are you fucking kidding me?
Seriously, that has to be a troll.

Those 4 movies are terrible, with the exception (maybe) of Star Trek (maybe).
But even then, they may have played themselves into a corner with Khan's blood and who wrote that? Lindelof.

If you're not trolling, you are the biggest dickhead I know.

World War Z - enjoyed it, but he took the book - took a dump on it and then did his own thing.

If he followed the book it would have been incredible, and not just good.

Star Trek - Meh, I never finished it. Though that was all JJ LENSE FLARE that ruined it for me.

Prometheus - Took a great script by Jon Spaihts and took huge steaming LOST dump on it. The result was awful.

Cowboys and Aliens - Absolutely horrendous film, I don't know 1 person that enjoyed it.

Be clueless more?

If you can explain to me how it would've been possible to make a film true to that book, you'll earn yourself a shiny nickel.

I actually think it would have been better suited to a TV show.

Oh and Lindelof only really changed the ending, so using that movie as an example seems pretty silly.

Liked the first episode. Quite well done and Im interested to see where it goes, though I've heard...
Spoiler:
the writers/producers have said, just as in the book the show is based upon, they currently have no intention of explaining the nature of the rapture'ish event. The show isn't about the End Times or recurring acts of God. Its about how the characters cope with a relentless and ever present sense of grief

Just finished watching it, based off this thread. Wow what a disjointed and fragmented world. I love that it was using, I guess, a previously used concept, but in a very original way.

And fucking Jesus fuck, that cop is 2hot4tv

Nope even the Star Trek sequel was bad. Had so many plot holes and general stupidity by everybody in it, ugh.

Do some of you expect every movie to be worthy of an oscar or something?

You should go into a movie expecting it to be what it is.

you dont go into a michael bay transformers movie expecting a deep complicated interesting story. you go in expecting robots fighting and michael bay explosions and enjoy it for what it is.

As far as Lindelof goes, even if you dont think he is amazing or anything, he is far from this "terrible writer" some of you are accusing to the point that you'd write off an hbo show completely because of his name attached to it.

its not like his list of shows/movies is united states of tara, the wannabees, keeping up with the kardashians and scary movie 5.

JRod, this is a classic of example of why people think you're a dickhead.
You're the one who said APB had a grudge over Lindelof and LOST and then presented Star Trek, World War Z, Prometheus and Cowboys v Aliens as counter arguments to him being great (?) - and fucking lol at that.

Then you take 4/5 days to make a shitty non-nonsensical response which has nothing to fucking do with the conversation you started and retreated from originally anyway.

Classic JRod, classic multi headed hydra.

yes, thats exactly what happened

fuck me.......... twist it a bit more.

read it normally instead of twisting it to your liking and you'll realise i'm saying that none of those movies are so fucking terrible to completely write off anything new he is doing so it seemed more likely that abp was just having a grudge about lost.

also the fact he said "a huge steaming LOST dump" is more or less a confirmation he holds that grudge.

I couldnt be fucked argueing the merits or not of those movies in this thread if thats what you're looking for.

In this thread, you're the only person out of many who believes that those movies aren't steaming piles of shit. Why should I enjoy them for what they are? I don't enjoy shit.

I quite enjoyed it, i thought it was just interesting but then out of no where that last reveal and then the kids dealing with their loss really grabbed me.


Really hope it can keep it up.

Second ep was a bit more intact (?) than the first ep. One thing that's interesting is that it's really hard to pick up on intentions of most of the main characters (why is the son running around with that idiot? why is Livvie off with the people in white?).

Daughter acknowledged him. And the cop found the truck. He's real, but WTF are his intentions?

I don't think the cop's losing it, but on the verge of finding it. Seems like he's been angry and confused for awhile. Seems like everyone in the whole damn town is confused and angry. But I get the feeling that the cop is the one that's going to rise above it and decide on what's to be done.

Also, his son should have let that black dude blow him. I mean no harm/foul right?

wtf is with wayne the hugging healing freak?

And after the "crazy dads" talk of "them" visiting the cop. makes me think that maybe the dog shootin, tobacco chewin, truck drivin guy was one of the peolpe that dissappeared, but when he reappears anybody can see him.

i dunno, wild theory. but somethings going on and daaaamn i want to know.

Spoiler:
They alluded a couple of times that hot cop, hot cop's dad and crazy priest were all pals. My take on it was that crazy priest had come through for the dad by exposing the judge on the flyer he pulled out of the jar. What the strange part is that you bury money in your backyard as a show of appreciation? Maybe that was just strange for the sake of strange. And I think him staring at the roof was irrelevant, he just happened to be doing that when the idea struck him.

Starting to hate the son. Really don't see his motivation, and he seems like a nice enough kid. Poor Hot Cop, just can't seem to catch a break from anyone.

Spoiler:
The moment he was considering the ATF's offer to go in guns blazing was great.

There's plenty going on even without them. The dog shooter, the priest, the relationship between the mayor and chief. His daughter and her slutty little friend.

I've got a weird American Beauty thing going on with the daughter's friend.

Not sure what they are trying to do besides intimidate / harass people.

The dudes wife is absolutely disgusting for leaving her family to join the cult. Still don't even know if she lost anyone personally or if she is just a self involved idiot.

I think they want to keep the event fresh in everyone's mind, which of course is pretty painful. Maybe it's their way of keeping the memories of the departed fresh? In any case, they're like Mormons on crack, overly forcing their views down everyone's throats.
