Stranger Things has been release to Netflix. I have not had a chance to watch or binge watch... yet.

But here's a recent article to only fuel my fire for it.

11 of the Best 70's & 80's References in Stranger Things

Uh, it's not really about The Wall

The Great Wall

https://youtu.be/6SKI9rgqFck

Appropriately for a movie about one of the Wonders of the World, The Great Wall is huge. Directed by House of Flying Daggers and Hero filmmaker Zhang Yimou, it is the most expensive Chinese movie of all time. But if you’re expecting a lofty historical epic about the 13,000-mile wall’s construction, well, expect again.

In these exclusive images, you can see the vibrancy and imagination in Zhang’s vision. Believe it or not, The Great Wall is actually a monster movie — and these shots show the fantasia-soaked pageantry that many remember from Zhang’s most widely-seen spectacle, especially in the West, the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, which he directed himself.

The new film, which will be released in 3D on Feb. 17, 2017, stars Matt Damon, leading an international cast of actors that also includes Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones), Willem Dafoe (Platoon), Chinese superstar Andy Lau (Infernal Affairs, which was remade as The Departed), pop icon Luhan, and actress Jing Tian (who will also appear in next year’s Kong: Skull Island). World War Z author Max Brooks had a hand in developing the film’s screenplay.

In an interview with EW, Zhang (via a translator) describes the array of challenges, risks, and rewards that come with making his and his country’s biggest film ever.

Whoa... Dancing on the edge of absurdity. Part of me says I'm not going to waste my time. Another part says bring it on.

Holy cow, they're finally making a movie version of Bone!

I've been waiting for this flick since I was a kid... they'd been talking about it since before CGI was even a big thing, it was going to be cel-animated (though I could see it being a hybrid of animation and live action like Who Framed Roger Rabbit?)  Now i imagine that it'll be all CGI, and it'll look fantastic.

John Wick: Chapter 2

Love the first one. Not sure the 2nd one can bring anything interesting new to me. We shall see.

I wonder if I'll remember this if/when it ever comes to Netflix:

Top Funny Comedian: The Movie.  It's "The Hangover" of China, so naturally they cast someone who doesn't speak mandarin.  No spoilers, just watch.
