Out of the Blue

We had our second co-op Borderlands 3 gaming session last night and had just as much fun as last week. It's still a little chaotic, and we can take some of the credit for that ourselves, but the game's design and style play into this as well. And one bug in particular doesn't help, as our player names keep disappearing intermittently. A little Googling tells us this is a known issue, and there doesn't seem to be a consistent way to fix it. It's a little frustrating, as you'd hope that one of the advantages of picking up a game months after launch would be that such annoyances would be cleared up already.

I really don't know my top 10, I'll need to review that. But there are a lot of movies that I didn't even find particularly good where I guess others did. It seems like stream series have just taken over.

Some faves that did little for me:

Get Out (overrated)
Shape of Water (too basic)
Mad Max (boring)

I like Into the Spiderverse, Arrival and Edge of Tomorrow, but those are really top movies of a decade? For sci-fi I like Interstellar more than the last two, Gravity (and wasn't as blown away as many) or even Prometheus to.

I liked some of the super hero movies, but again Top 10 in a decade? I dunno, I found better SH movies I feel in the 00's. Star Wars are watchable but I can't see how they are top movies of a decade, the characters too me were bland. Rouge One may have been my fave of the bunch.

A handful on the list I haven't seen, but want to. It's possible it was a poor decade for movies, perhaps it is just hard to bring something really fresh to the big screen.

Edit: Just reviewed a lot of lists, bad decade overall imo.

Some I like after doing a little looksee: Silver Linings, American Hustle, Green Book, The Revenant. No Tarantino movies?
