    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    You missed out the most important part. Alan Arkin co-stars!

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    Just watched Batman Ninja. It's utter, utter shit. Both by the standards of Batman stories and anime. Looks really nice, and the animation is good, but the story is appalling nonsense. I wasn't expecting Shakespeare or anything, but it's just gibberish.

    Amazon Prime Video

    To add my voice to the complaining about the UI, I used the app on my Samsung TV last night, and there was no search option on the front page. All I could do was scroll through stuff they recommended. Eventually I realised that if I selected a film then from that film's page I could access the search. But it wasn't available on the front page. Madness.

    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    I can cope with any of the West Coast crew, if Jeff is there as well. If not, it's really touch and go as whether I'll be able to watch it. Pretty much everything the East does is brilliant though.

    I'd like to be able to see who uploaded the video. In general, I'll enjoy anything East posts, but I'm much more picky when it comes to anything out of the West Coast. With the new design, I have to watch the opening of the video to find out whether I'll turn it off because Jeff isn't on it.

    Has anyone seen The Shadow Of The Wind?

    The Haunting of Hill House

    I think that's why I liked it so much. I find creeping dread affects me. Jump scares and more mainstream horror stuff doesn't at all.
  9. Seems so, only far more so. There are only vinyl record players and transistor radios. No CDs, or even cassettes. All the cars look like they're from the 60s. There are no TVs that I've seen. No-one has a mobile phone and the landlines are all rotary dial phones. But there is a laptop in one scene. If it wasn't so obvious, I'd think someone left it on set by mistake.
  10. When is this set? Everything looks like it's in the '60s, but then there's a laptop in one scene.

    The Haunting of Hill House

    Oh yes, I agree it's not a patch on The Witch. But I can't think of a better horror I've seen since I saw The Witch. I haven't seen Hereditary, which is supposed to be excellent. I preferred this to IT though, which is pretty much the only other good horror I can think of since then.

    Good new horror films

    I can watch them and enjoy their campy fun, but I've never found a single one effective as horror. Give me Rosemary's Baby over Halloween any day.

    The Haunting of Hill House

    Out of interest, what would you say is a scary show/movie? I find it so interesting what people do and don't find scary. Most of what I find good horror is what a lot of people say is boring or rubbish for some reason, like this or The VVitch or Under The Skin. Whereas the more typical modern horror films are the ones I find boring, with the jump scares every few seconds accompanied by loud audio cues and overdone CG. Take 'IT', for example. I think it's really good whenever you don't see Pennywise, but the second he's in frame it's just a bland mess of unsubtle CG and blaring bwaaaaams.

    The Haunting of Hill House

    Madness. It's far and away the best horror TV show ever made, and the best horror in any medium since The VVitch.

    Yeah, I've just finished watching it. It's not bad, just not great. Lucy Boynton was wasted, Dan Stevens was odd and Michael Sheen was great (as he almost always is). The story was good, but no better than that. It was too long, as well. I enjoyed it a lot more than Hold The Dark though.
