Just got back from watching Tomb Raider, it was ok but nothing special.

Very average sadly and takes a long time to get going.
Bit harsh to talk about Steve like that on a public forum. Have you tried telling him how you feel?...

Ash vs Evil dead
This really should be getting more praise as its one of the very few series that is consistently entertaining
Yep really enjoying this. All seasons have been great. I'm still watching Z Nation but i dont know, getting quite ridiculous but i'll stick with it. I mean it was a bit bizarre before but (late season 3) its getting stupid.

Yesterday I watched Get Out with Daniel Kaluuya. It was impressive though I knew it was going to end this way.
Anyway, it was interesting way to show racial inequality. I can recommend to look.

^Really good film

Watched 7 Seconds, new american series about a cop who accidentally hits a black kid on a bike and they try to cover it up. Good series but probably too long for 10 episodes, could have shrunken it down a bit. Next up - more Z Nation

New Beauty & The Beast - not the original but if you treat as a standalone it is at very least watchable.
Gotham series 3 - not too bad but dwindling a little now. Assuming the trailers i'm seeing are for season 4 on TV - so i might stick it out.
Walking Dead s8 pt 2 - beginning to feel like watching the A Team with the poor gunmanship on display lately. I think the series is in decline and probably won't last much longer.

The Take (aka Bastille Day), starring Idris Elba. Pretty enjoyable, but not memorable, spy/action triller set in Paris. Decent time passer with some snappy action scenes, good if you like the likes of Bourne, Taken etc.

Cant see it ending soon. Beginning wasn’t great but I’m on episode 13 of the latest season and it’s improved. They’re already talking about the future seasons.

I believe that season four has been picked up by E4.


Watched Jessica Jones season two. Not really sure what I really thought about it in all honesty, at the moment I feel that it was just there. Not bad but not particularly good either.

Yes it’s about to start in the next week or so. It’s a shame it’s E4 and not channel 4, the same goes for Marvels agent of Shield as most viewers are missing out on HD and have to suffer blurry vision.

My latest film is Justice League. DC does the Avengers and does it quite well.

Edit - poor spelling as usual

Started watching 'The Terror', new series from the US. Bit quiet to begin with but i think this has potential, two navy ships (late 18th century) get stuck in the north pole and crazy things happen. Hope its decent

That's on my list. I watched a preview thing and it seemed okay.

Recently finished s2 of Santa Clarita Diet. It's the best.


Also, I very much rate We Are Still Here. A horror film from a couple of years back. A real throwback horror film and brilliant. Not all that scary but what it does get right is the carnage.

Black Panther

Going in I thought it may have been too hyped but I really enjoyed it.
