    Yup. I just don't see Gooding as OJ and he hasn't convinced me. All of the acting seems "over done" or "exaggerated" to me, like they are trying way too hard (larger than life?). And OJ moreso than the others.

    Either the director was trying to create a type of effect, or these guys really were all assholes the way they talked to each other, etc. ....

      I didn't think Cuba was very believable as OJ, but still thought this was a phenomenal show.

        I surely remember the trial. Everyone at work was on the edge of their chairs for the verdict.
        I believe the second season centers on the murder of clothing designer Versace in Miami IIRC. They are both shot under the title "American Crime Story" and are a spin-off of the "American Horror Story" series, which typically used many of the same actors season by season, but as each season is a stand alone story, the actors were recast each season.

          Thank you; now I know!

            Annoying and entertaining flick about the world of low level pot dealing. Really good movie.

              This is one of my all-time favorite movies and itís based on a true story. What did you find annoying about it?

              • Watched a horror movie called ďSatanicĒ tonight, mostly because I think Sarah Hyland is incredibly hot - the first 20 minutes is pretty bad, but then it actually gets really freaky and was a pretty creepy show.

                  I use to work with a guy with a shady past. Lots of drug dealing and gang involvement. I remember talking to him about that movie and I said something about how pointless it was to kill a guy for 1200 dollars.

                  He was all like "it's all about the principal man, it's all about the principal". I found him really annoying and stupid. I have known two people in my life that have murdered people and I didn't find either tough or mean. Just really stupid.

                  The character development was so good in that movie it just reminded of some annoying idiots I use to know. It was just spot on.

                    Fair enough, I was confused as people donít usually refer to something as both annoying and entertaining, but that was one of the few explanations that actually support that statement.

                    • Doomsday Preppers is pretty funny. I didnít realize the series started in 2012 so a bit dated already.

                      • Watched "Triple Frontier" l;ast night. Thought it would be good, with a such a strong cast (Affleck, Hunnam, OScar Isaac), but jeez, what a terrible movie. Felt so low budget, like some bad action movie off Cinemax in the early 90's.

                          Yeah we watched it a few days ago ans it could've been great. Had the director from the hurt locker doing it and that cast... they just couldn't put it all together. Still decent, 3.5/5

                            Kind of a "Three Kings" plot line?

                              Yeah, kind of, but more joyless. Its also got elements of the "Your the best there is... but I'm retired... but you're the best!" angle as well. Kind of a worn out trope.

                                Same here, but I never even finished it. The plot line seemed not bad but got predictable. Would have been better off as a series instead of a 2 hour movie.

                                Anyway I wonder if they thought about making 2 trips with the chopper to haul all that money?
