  1. Utterly gripping television. I can't remember a series similar, where I was so invested in a relatively slow-paced drama. It's absolutely captivated me.
  2. I’m going to spend the next 5 months lovingly watching my kale and tomato’s grow in my vegetable patch. They’ll show some promise, I’ll water them every day while they flourish, then at the point of harvesting I’ll discover a big fat slug has slowly oozed absolute shite all over them, ate them, and left me unsatisfied and without kale or tomatoes. And then I’ll go watch another box set.
  3. It’s all on Prime! Finished a second watch with my gf who’d never seen it. Totally still holds up, despite some of the dragging episodes. Just mellow/easy watch telly and we were hooked!
  4. Slow burn at first (we had a lot of ‘who’s that again?’ chatter at the start), but ultimately a fantastic series of tragedy and horror. Beautifully shot and definitely going to re-watch again.
  5. Just (or recently) been added to Prime. That’s my go to TV sorted again for a while!
  6. People chewed up and loved TFA as a soft reboot. Millions. Billions. If TLJ had been a blatant ‘soft reboot’ of Empire, rather than subverting expectations (hashtag), I’m half wondering whether that’s what everyone actually wanted and why they are so ‘meh’ about TLJ as it turned out. It feels like this film was the difinitive knife edge of soft reboot vs something different, and just couldn’t make its mind up, or rather, had massive interference late on (Kathleen/mouse). Rougue One, depressingly and for all its faults, is the only Star Wars film since the prequels that pulled off actually being different than the original trilogy.
  7. Don’t the box office takings of these films suggest otherwise? Deadpool 2 and Ant Man 2 both performed poorly compared to their predecessors.
  8. I think this is the consensus of 90% of people. Fatigue. Edit: Personally, I was spent after infinity war which in itself, despite being a phenomenal film, felt the point at which I felt I was done with superheroes for a bit. Not a degree of scorn on infinity war, it’s my favourite marvel film of all time. Just a mental point reached.
  9. I think a small thing but a brilliant thing is how they've animated the characters singing as if they are actually singing. Expressions, pausing for breath, straining on high notes etc. It's probably not the first time (not seen Frozen), but I really noticed it. There's a lot of really subtle animation in this.
  10. Watched this over the weekend with the niece and nephews. Absolutely loved it, the golden trio of great visuals, story and music. They certainly know how to do it right. Kids were spellbound, laughing at 'the big man', the chicken, the youngest just loved the colours I imagine. Except in 2 parts I actually welled up. Whether it was 'that' feeling when a certain piece of music just hits I don't know. The ending section just completely moved me. It's hard to explain, not sadness, just overwhelmed with combination of music and story I guess.
