Hope he keeps the animation rights

"Thanks for calling Netflix, you're greenlit!  Who am I speaking with?"

I'm not sure if he's very pretty or rather ugly.  Loved him in "Paul".

So the plot for AD Season 4 is basically Bateman's life now?

// if his first film isn't well received, they'll just re-cut it

That's a bold strategy, Cotton.  Let's see if it pays off for them.

It's fairly good. It struggles at first a bit though.

I had no interest when it first came out but was hooked after watching the first episode. I'm looking forward to season 2.

Ozark was pretty good. Second season coming up August 31, I think.

I loved Ozark.  Bateman is great in it.  He just plays Bateman in everything he does.

I have to say it's weird seeing Jason Bateman everywhere. I love him. He's like that TV big brother that I grew up with.

Second this.  I thought Ozark was fantastic

Sweet!

Really liked it much more than I anticipated I would.

I liked him until the ill-fated NYT interview with the AD cast, where Jessica Walter is trying to explain that Jeffrey Tambor treated her like shiat and Bateman basically mansplains to her that "that's what actors do." He fell on his sword a bit by the next day, but it knocked my opinion of him down a notch or two.

And, in other news: Neill Blomkamp (District 9, CHAPPiE, Elysium) to direct yet-another new 'RoboCop' remake for MGM.

"Game Night" should get more love.

Him?

you got a slight chuckle out of me

Ozark is absolutely awesome. If you liked Breaking Bad, you'll probably like Ozark.
 
2018-07-11 04:50:57 PM  
Good thing the headline didn't say 'Banana Hammock'
 
2018-07-11 04:55:09 PM  
His Bad Words film was rather good. Some really good funny and some decent feels. If Netflix gets that kind of stuff, they will be doing alright.

/don't look at me!

Boring conversation anyway...

I've loved him since he played Rickey Schroeder's mischievous friend on Silver Spoons, then got his own show ("It's Your Move," which was way before its time and very good).

I watched about six episodes of Ozark but then decided it wasn't that appealing, and realized there's something about Bateman's persona that annoys me. I could take it in AD I small doses. But that's okay because there's so much content between Netflix and Hulu that there's something for everyone. Although I think Netflix is spreading themselves too thin by churning out so much volume. Every time I log on there are three or four different series, most of which are not my demographic because they're aimed at a much younger group.
