Behold The Ford Mondeo
Folsom Prison Blues scenes are spine tingling.
Watched it - quite enjoyed it but think 1 and 2 were slightly better. Still worth a watch though.Alex Rider season 3 on Prime, very apt as it centers round a computer game................
Just finished it too, was very impressed as expected from Adam McKay.Don't Look Up on Netflix is absolutely fantastic. Does exactly what it's set out to do with a stellar lineup and over-the-top premise. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Was its statement about 'Fake News' clear? Yes
Was its satire of Covid denial (to me the incoming comet was a metaphor for Covid-19) clear? Yes
All in all though, was a fantastic watch, cast were phenomenal, given the lack of films out this year Leo might be in with a shot at Oscar nomination.
Adam McKay does like to dumb things down sometimes to make topics more palatable to the mainstream audience (great examples of this in The Big Short). Have to say though, given that I was a few beers in by this point having very clear themes being outlined was no hardship to me!I actually thought it was a little too obvious with the metaphors and messages..... I guess that's possibly deliberate irony though to keep it simple for the audience demographic being highlighted. Over-emphasised, as it should be on the screen, but incredibly accurate portrayal of just how twisted our world is becoming, through the media and through politics (Thought Meryl Streep was an excellent female Trump).
Went to watch ghostbusters today. I know it’s been mentioned but I really enjoyed it. They have used the original sound tracks in the movie which still gives it that 80’s feeling! I won’t say too much but would recommend it. Think it gets released on DVD early January.
I was crazy about ghostbusters when I was a kid. I remember having the back pack and ghost catcher as shown in the pic below. Was anyone else as sad as me?
I've heard really good things about this, what did you think?Just finished a new Korean Netflix series called The Silent Sea...
During a perilous 24-hour mission on the moon, space explorers try to retrieve samples from an abandoned research facility steeped in classified secrets.www.netflix.com
Military/science team are sent in a shuttle to investigate what happened at a Moon-base science station that ceased communication 5 years earlier.
Have been a big fan of Korean cinema for decades, and am so happy Netflix has embraced it too...although I have started a couple which just sent me to sleep with their over-slow-paced storylines.I've heard really good things about this, what did you think?
The Koreans are releasing some incredible stuff at the moment.
Sounds right up my street!Have been a big fan of Korean cinema for decades, and am so happy Netflix has embraced it too...although I have started a couple which just sent me to sleep with their over-slow-paced storylines.
However, in the case of The Silent Sea, I loved it, but I love science fiction in general, so may be a little biased
I think I binged the whole series over 2 evenings/nights and can honestly say I really wanted to carry on to the the next episode the first night but my bed was calling...and won!
There's obviously a bit of a whodunnit in there, and you can clearly see who the main suspect will be from Episode 1, but the full picture doesn't play out until Episode 5 or 6...and in the meantime blame is being passed around the whole team.
There are some 'mild horror' scenes & storyline, and the standard dystopian future Earth basis for the whole premise.
