  1. Although I thought this was extremely poor in places and terribly paced as a whole I think it just about works. I think a rewatch will be in order in a few months time as I found it incredibly difficult to follow at times. 

    Far from the tv masterpiece I was hoping for, but I think it will improve with rewatches.

    I think anyone who complained about Bella Ramseys casting before we even saw anything can get fucked after that first episode. She nailed Ellie imo.

    Exact opposite for me. I thought the show was excellent with the exception of Ramsey. She’s terrible. Why on earth didn’t they go with the actor who played Joel’s daughter for Ellie. She was exceptionally good.

    I watched Robin Hood 2018 the other day and really enjoyed it. Was surprised to see how poorly it was received. It’s got too much slow motion and the guy playing the protagonist is a weaker actor than the rest of the cast, but overall I thought it was very enjoyable. 

    Er, I own the 4k blu ray 

  4. Bates Motel 

    Not exactly highbrow tv, this incredibly trashy and incredibly entertaining show is pure fun from start to finish. Special mention to Vera Farmiga’s performance which might be the most extraordinary I’ve ever seen anywhere. She veers from utterly terrible to BAFTA worthy, often within a few scenes. Highmore is excellent in a difficult role.

    I just started on it (only at episode 1) and I’m wondering why there are complaints about Warwick Davis’s acting when static faced, monotone voiced flag smasher girl is here in all her drab dullness. How does she keep getting this kind of high profile job?

    It’s not that one from Falcon and Winter Soldier is it?

    Watched all 5 eps now, it's equal parts baffling, awful and awesome. Tonally it's all over the place, sub-Hollyoaks cringeworthy teen drama scripting one minute, then a laugh out loud quip out of nowhere the next, completely incongruous soundtrack in parts and random swear words unexpectedly thrown in that take me completely out of it.


    I can't decide whether I like it or not. 

    Sounds as confused as the Boba Fett show was ( which I just finished yesterday )

  7. Christ, what a mess the dc comics movies are. They lurch from one disaster to another. 

    I am not sure what is even happening now.  Are they rebooting everything with all new casts?  Is The Flash being released? What about the Shazam and Aquaman sequels? 

    Gunn doesn’t seem to have made astute decisions so far. 

  8. It’s been very interesting reading some of your controversial options!



    I have a few of my own.


    Matrix Revolutions is pretty decent.

    The second Jack Reacher film is really good.

    Batman Forever is good to.

    Michael Bay is the third best director of action currently working. ( first two are the Russo‘s and McQuarrie ). Shame he is shit at every other aspect of movie making.

    The Lone Ranger with Depo is great fun. 


    I have never heard of Office Space.

    I love the look of this and was obsessed with the early Colin McRae games but didn't end up getting on so well with Dirt Rally. Had a look on the PS Store and while this, 9 and 10 are full whack, for some reason the deluxe version of 9 is on at £8.69 so that's me all sorted, assuming I'm not about to find out it's the ugly cousin of the series.

    Where is it £8.69? I can't find it

  10. I've started this game a few times and play a few hours and then stop.


    My main issue is that the playable character is such a complete tosser that I can't take it anymore. He is such an idiotic, self-centered, narcissistic   moron who thinks that his way of existing is infinitely more important than anyone else's. 


    He is exactly the sort of person I actively try to avoid in RL.

    The Plot Against America - 3.5/5


    This is me filling another gap in my David Simon watchlist. It's an adaptation of the Philip Roth novel (which I haven't read) about a Jewish family in New Jersey set in alternate history 1940 where politicians with fascist sympathies are gaining traction.


    It took a little while to get going but once it had the hooks in, it was very compelling, tense, frustrating and believable. Solid cast overall - maybe Morgan Spector was a bit over the top at times but I get the fury and frustration of his character. Anthony Boyle was probably the stand-out for me but Jon Turturro, Winona Ryder, Zoe Kazan and all the supporting characters were spot on. As usual, there are a few Wire/The Deuce actors that show up, which I quite enjoy for no particular reason.


    Love a good mini-series, and David Simon has a great hit rate. I'm re-watching Generation Kill now.

    This sounds great. Where can I stream it?
