favorite, least favorite episodes?

Hard to pick a fave, but that first one (Buster Scruggs) probably.
Least, maybe the one with James Franco at the gallows
The last one "The Mortal Remains"
[SHOW]
Was getting sleepy when watching, so I was initially confused by ending.
After sleeping on it, the two guys were grim reapers of a sort - and over the course of the ride they reveal enough that the other passengers are realizing this. As the one said, the stagecoach driver will not stop. There is no checking out of that hotel. Also, that stagecoach driver image, creepy and iconic.

visually - the classic western film views are just spectacular..... They didn't need any stories, I could have just watched that Wagon train rolling along, or the Native Americans riding over the hill, or the gold miner ambling along with his horse
Anyway, good [expletive] from the Coen Brothers.
very excited to watch it. 3 more episodes of Narcos and then that

I still have yet to see Snowpiercer but it does not surprise me. The formula of Wonka has been copied a million times. The Polar Express was pretty open about copying it. But once you look around, you see more and more that roughly follow the outline of Wonka.

Saw Creed II last night, it was soooo good. They were able to keep everything fresh and really nailed the whole Drago vs. Creed storyline. Definitely recommend it to anyone.

Has Netflix released any good movies? Seems like they take all of the feature-length stuff that studios don’t want to release in theaters.

Well, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Which I [expletive] loved. I don't know that I could pick a favorite segment. I enjoyed every last one of them. The last one was perhaps a bit obvious - to the point I was almost expecting a reversal - but it was no less well-executed. Stephen Root is a treasure and should be in every film. "PAN SHOT!"

I really liked it. If you are fan of the franchise you'll like it. One thing I really like about the Creed movies is they do a good job of making the fights more realistic. There are still moments of disbelief, but they seem to have made a concentrated effort to show the flurries of hard punches are only 30-45 seconds of a round. Michael B. Jordan is a damn good actor.
