1). Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 (7.25/10): A good conclusion to the series, but I never really felt the excitement. Can't believe that so much of the final movie was still Harry just running around looking for a horcrux. It does get exciting after Snape's death, but a lot of stuff isn't explained and you kind of have to know about the books to really enjoy it. But I am glad that I finally saw all the HP movies together. I want WB to make an HP TV series for HBO Max. now that would really be something else, and it would cover everything from the books. But that's a pipedream I guess.
2. Tom and Jerry: Fast and the Furry (7.5/10): I never liked Tom and Jerry movies, but I feel like this one is closest to the spirit of the shorts. I found it after a long time and I really enjoyed it. Just what I needed - more T&J antics. Other characters were pretty funny as well. It made me want to revisit old T&J episodes.
1). Upload (8/10): Now this is just what I needed. A breath of fresh air. Something new and original. From the showrunner of The Office comes this comedy/drama/romance/satire/murder mystery. Once I started this show I could hardly stop before finishing it. It's kind of like a sitcom but with very good production values, a strong romance, social commentary and a murder mystery running in the background. It strikes nearly a perfect tone. The main characters are endearing in their own way and the actors do a good job. Robie Amell specially surprised me with his charismatic presence. My biggest complain would be that the final episode starts up too many storylines, and those might be hard to remember by the time s2 comes. I feel like a lot of streaming shows do that, they leave too many cliffhangers at the end of their first season, but are unable to follow up well in the next season. Very few streaming shows have avoided it, I hope this one does as well. Anyway, this show is highly recommended.
2) Run: I compared this show to JHMS early in it's run, but now it feels more like a Coen brothers movie in terms of regular people being sucked into a world of crime by accident and they don't know how to deal with it. This show is not great, not bad, but I feel like the story just isn't progressing fast enough. With just 2 episodes left I'll finish this season, but probably won't be back for s2.
