I just had Birdbox recommend to me yesterday. I am not a fan of horror movies anyway so I would have passed on it. This confirms that I should. The greatest movie that I will ever miss. I can just feel it.
Over the last couple of weeks I watched the series Friday Night Lights. Has anyone seen it? It is amazing I thought. Coach Taylor is a fantastic character portrayed fantastically by Kyle Chandler. Glenn Morshower has some episodes in the series too (Agent Aaron Pierce from 24) so it’s an instant win for me.
After I finished the series I watched the movie version from 2004, that is pretty good as well. Connie Britton is in the movie as well as the TV series, I think the only actor in both.
I have only watched one American football game from start to finizh (2007 Super Bowl, Bears vs Colts) but have followed the Chicago Bears results for years. I might pick up the sport full time now after watching FNL. It looks like a really good sport.
Funny thing is that watching FNL I recognised the actor playing Vincent Howard from a character that I had seen years before on The Wire. Surprisingly I had no idea that the actor for both characters is Michael B Jordan. One of the biggest actors today. Had no idea it was him and I’ve seen him now in one of the greatest programs ever made (The Wire) and one that is now in my top 5 (FNL).
