  1. SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Dat spic and span Falcon lounge, tho. https://geektyrant.com/news/cool-new-photos-from-solo-a-star-wars-story-and-additional-plot-details
  2. I’ve watched the first couple of episodes of this and I’m really enjoying it so far. Has anyone noticed, though, how bad the subtitles are? It’s like they’re written by a Spaniard with a decent, but not quite fluent, grasp of English. So, for example, in the first episode with the school kids on the bus, the boy texts the girl to asks if he can sit next to her and the subtitle reads: “Can I sit by your side?” instead of simply “Can I sit next to you?” It's not a huge deal, but it’s kind of jarring when you’re trying to keep up with the action and you’re used to quickly scanning subtitles and the characters are “speaking” English with a Spanish “accent”.
  3. Altered Carbon - Netflix Cyberpunk

    I spent the first episode of this with my other half whispering “This is awful” after about 15 minutes in. And, I have to agree with Harsin. The sfx are great, but the acting is dire and the script is awful and exposition heavy. I’ll probably watch the rest on the train in the morning rather than it being an evening TV watch.
  4. A Monster Calls

    I just watched this. I didn’t really know anything about it going in. My mum died after a long battle with cancer and so the idea of part of you wanting it to be over was particularly poignant. I thought it was beautifully acted and produced. I said to my other half at the end “I’m just going to the kitchen to get a cup of tea and a mince pie.” ”And a cry?” came the reply.
  5. Manhunt is decent, but Sam Worthington is so unengaging. I think the problem is he’s always concentrating so hard with his American accent, which still falters frequently, that he forgets to act.
  6. The Mummy Remake - Due 2017 - Cruise, Crowe

    I watched this and had a giggle at the compositing in of Big Ben just behind St Paul’s cathedral, perpetuating the idea in American tourists’ minds that all the London landmarks stand right next to each other.
  7. Blue Planet 2

    Amazing! I’m going to put it back on tonight and just say ‘Just wait and watch!’
  8. Blue Planet 2

    It really is stunning in 4K HDR. My viewing keeps getting interrupted by my partner who refuses to watch animals in distress, so in the first episode where the dolphins are being chased by the false killer whales I had to stop. I’ll have to watch on my own later!
  9. Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    Are there any credible theories on how they’ll write Leia out? She was meant to have a prominent role in episode 9, apparently. They must have had to do a hell of a re-write on the story, even if the script isn’t finished.
  10. Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    “Girl” and “Bird”. I’m guessing you’re not totally on board with this female hero thing.
  11. Star Trek Discovery - new TV show materialising 24 Sep 2017

    I’m really impressed by the production values on this. I hope the series manages to keep up the quality. It’s like Star Trek seen through proper 21st century lenses. This is, incidentally, how I reconcile the apparent differences in tech between this and TOS - the stories we saw were retold through the storytelling ‘lenses’ of the time

    The opening two episodes are on Netflix now

    Great news! He understands what’s required.

    Joss Whedon? Edit: Oh, somebody said him already.
