Only ever seen bits of it as it isn't a real Bond film. I'm curious about it, but what I've seen was pretty bad.

It didnt feel like it from the outset, it has to be really bad for me to stop watching it,
Few films do that

I'm a massive Bond fan, and I can never finish the 'Casino Royale' spoof, an utter mess of a film.

The good news is after 'You Only Live Twice' you have the brilliant 'On Her Majesties Secret Service', then things get a bit silly (but good fun) with 'Diamonds Are Forever'.

I'd just see it as being to Bond films what Spaceballs is to Star Wars, except that they somehow managed to secure an official licence. Enjoy it for what it is or just skip it if that's not your thing.

Never Say Never Again is the other not quite canon Bond film, although that at least attempts to follow the same formula as the rest of them and even stars Sean Connery. It's certainly no worse than the Roger Moore films around the same period.

Jack The Giant Slayer on Amazon Prime. Really good bit of kid-friendly sub-LOTR entertainment, highly recommended. Good cast too.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Thought was pretty good and think a sequel is in the works. Had never heard of it before.

Watched 'why did you kill me?'' on netflix

Like documentaries specially the one off ones like this. It was okay tragic story for the girl but most of the family were wrong-un's (Not saying she deserved it in the slightest). Different way of live over there in some areas

Django Unchained, again. Great film, long but it flew by, some fun performances from the leads.

The Sound of Metal (Oscar contender on Amazon Prime). Fantastic film with some great performances.

It's one of my favourites, and I think it gets better throughout the early series. I rewatched series 1 recently and forgot how low budget it was.

Recently I've also been enjoying:

Taskmaster (new series)
Pushing Daisies
Better Call Saul

Best films I've seen recently:

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (I realised I'd only seen the first and most recent Tom Cruise M:I films)
Fighting With My Family (I didn't realise it was based on a true story until the end, about a wrestling family from Norwich aiming to reach the WWE)
To Catch A Thief (catching up on some Hitchcock classics)
Rio Bravo (the first John Wayne film I've watched in my adult life, and it's excellent)

Mortal Kombat (new one)

Mostly pish, Kano carries the first half, 2nd half it picks up then it ends........
New guy might as well be a sodding Power ranger with blades that cut

Edit
Mortal Kombat Annihilation
The CG is terrible. I enjoyed it more than the new one
