  1. If any movie needed a reboot, it's this one. Instead, we get a sequel?
  2. Finished episode 4. Loving it so far, but... it does have that mystery box writing feel to it. I just hope they can get something satisfying out of it all.
  3. Yep. It’s gone the way of Jim Robinson.
  4. I'll be honest, I'm glad it's not on Netflix any more so I don't have to hate watch it. I don't miss it one bit.
  5. I never managed to watch this back in the day, bar a few episodes here and there. Probably about five total. So I've been watching this pretty much for the first time on Netflix and I'm up to season 4. Loving it.
  6. I’ve just started catching up with season 11, watched 5 episodes. The Commonwealth is very Fallout 4. I dare say I’m actually enjoying it. Maybe because I know it’s the last season! Also, didn’t they used to film this on 16mm but then switched to digital because of Covid? As a result, the show is looking a lot better. Some of the wide shots in that abandoned shopping mall looked great.
  7. You got me curious, so I had to look at the trailer. Damn, that looks like one shit movie. It’s such a strange genre, the British gangster film. I guess somebody must be into them, otherwise they wouldn’t keep making them. There must be about fifty Rise of the Footsoldier movies by now.
  8. Yeah, the pilot is certainly not indicative of the rest of the show. Stick with it.
  9. Can't argue with the bolded bit. Agree 100%. But the film succeeds in spite of that, because of McQuarrie's masterful direction which elevates the material. It has one of the best car chase scenes in recent memory. The second one though, now that was terrible.
  10. Beyond The Door Seventies Italian Exorcist/Rosemary's Baby rip off. Not quite as nuts as I was hoping, but enjoyable enough. 3 out of 5
  11. This is usually when I have my mind blown, but I already knew that.
  12. I wouldn't say it's a million miles better than the first film. The first film is cool as fuck.
  13. Yep, they’re like the Bond books and movies in that regard. Or at least the movies were until Craig became Bond.
  14. Pretty much self contained with new baddies to bash in each book. As for any sort of arc, I already feel they’ve done more in the flashbacks in the first season than in all of the books. I wouldn’t be surprised if they lean on flashbacks again in the coming seasons.
  15. Don't Go In The House (1979) This was on the Video Nasty list of the eighties, and I can see why. Mainly for one scene in particular which is horrific. I watched the extended cut on Arrow, with a whole extra ten minutes. I'm guessing that one scene is where most of the original cuts were made. The rest of the film is mostly a character study of one man unravelling due to the abuse he received from his mother, a bit like Psycho. It's low budget, scuzzy, definitely of its time, but is a little deeper than your average slasher movie from that era. 3½ out of 5
  16. I've just started playing this. I'm not overly familiar with London geography, so a lot of stuff doesn't feel wrong as it would for London residents. I find it weird playing an open world game with roundabouts and box junctions. Sometimes, the game looks really bland. And then you hit a more run down area with loads of graffiti, and it looks quite nice.
  17. He was in both Jack Reacher movies as well, so I was expecting it at some point.
  18. They made a news story out of some random bollocks on reddit? I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
  19. The Last Duel is fantastic, so no.
  20. Isn’t the remake of West Side Story supposed to be better than the original?
