Dumber and Dumber To - Is it as good as the original? I don't think so. Was it still funny? Yes!

This week's Doctor Who - wow, that was subtle :lol:

Nice touch finishing on a shot of an RPG about to hit a passenger plane. I'm sure that won't upset anyone :roll:

Last night, for Halloween we watched:
Monster Hunter (aka Dark was the night) with Kevin Durand. A good, slow burning monster movie which I really enjoyed.
Also watched The Gift with Jason Bateman which was an above average Thriller which a poor reveal at the end.
And finally we watched Haunt (2014) which was a very average haunted house movie.

All in all a fun Halloween night :)

They launched a Roll Playing Game at a passenger plane?! Does it do the same thing as a flock of birds? :lol:

No, no, no! I'm not having it.
"Roll Playing Game", it's just not on. It's worse than "loose" instead of "lose". Red card MPM. RED CARD!
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

That indeed was a terrible school boy error and I offer my most humble apology to all of those that had to read my shoddy spelling of Role :oops: :lol:

Hmmm very surreal and i keep thinking its a joke...

Mike Tyson Mysteries !

Imagine an adult version of Scooby Doo with swearing (beeped out) and an alcoholic pigeon saying funny things.

Just watched an episode and it had quite a few laugh out loud moments. Its a cartoon by Adult Swim, it looks like an old Scooby Doo episode due to the graphic style

Very very funny though specially the alcoholic pigeon. Heres a trailer/sneak peak of it (its now in season 2)...

It started as a joke, then became a series

Went to watch Spectre at the weekend. Very good, but felt very laboured in some parts.

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Saw this as a teenager and had no idea what to make of it, and to a degree I still don't. It looks good and isn't a lazy cash in, but it just feels a bit too family friendly and not what a Mad Max film should be. Tina Turner isn't bad but it does date the film somewhat, and whilst it starts strongly it goes downhill once he leaves Bartertown, and the end feels like a cheap retread of Road Warrior.

I found this one to be quite dull. The first two were awesome films but Thunderdome felt a bit removed from the established world and I couldn't stand the parts with the tribespeople.

I can see why some people like it but you could just swap Max out for any generic hero and not tell the difference. Fury Road however remains the best film I've seen this year, and one of my favourite action films of all time.

Saw Spectre and was very disappointed.

The film has a dull tone and really makes very little sense - it also looks back again into Bond lore - which I think is now done to death. I like Craig, but am ready for something else now - something fun.
