Couldn't agree more.
We also had The Neon Demon on the Netflix list by the same director, that was instantly removed.

GREEN ROOM - not as good as it thinks it is!

a right bunch of degens posing as a music band get set for a gig at a super duper far right group HQ and do stupid things, logic gets thrown out the window and patrick stewart is too damn quiet! the end is ridiculous (not all of it mind) and there is some really good schlock but the decision making in this leaves a LOT to be desired!

least it was better than FIFTY SHADES OF WHAT THE HELL!!!

god that film is dire, there's only TWO parts i liked and one of them was a sodding long shot of the city skyline!
barely any life to fill hoth with ZERO characters that had any life in them, so so BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND

DEAPOOL is ******* HILARIOUS

both ALICE movies are damn fine, loved the big cgi blowout ending for the second one, 'cos i'm a sucka for those :mrgreen:

ultimate avengers 2? okay i guess .....

oh forgot about NEON DEMON, very strange movie and fell asleep near the end, no not because it was boring i was tired okay, so i watch it again next night, still strange and cinematic ..... oh and HIGH RISE too if i haven't mentioned it yet .....

Does that one also have a character who explains to Wahlberg, at great length, why it's totally OK for him to be smashing his daughter? Is it an Autobot instead this time?

I've been re-watching Game of Thrones. Its amazing how much you pick up on things the second time around, now that you know the characters quite well. Its even better the second time around!

Sailor Moon R- Finally resumed going through the anime and boy, this has filler season/arc written all over it. Ah well, nearly up to the point where Chibiusa shows up and it starts following the manga again.....along with more filler.

Just watched season 7 of Game of Thrones again. A long wait for the final season. Other than that, my boys always want Thomas the Tank Engine!

Moana. Could lose the songs and chop the runtime down a bit, but otherwise a solid Disney movie. Liked the art style and The Rock is surprisingly good.

Wonder Woman. Bit of a let down tbh. Chris Pine hams his way through every scene and Gal Gadot is too thin and willow to really convince, while her accent is horrible. Didn't feel much like Wonder Woman, though there are some great action scenes that help gloss over the casting choices. Still better than Batman vs Superman.

I think there was a lot of good will attached to the film. It wasn't perfect but after the previous DC films it was a step in the right ditection. God knows how many cuts Justice League has already gone through!

Been working through the DVD box set of The Adventure Game.
I did watch some of it back in the early 1980s and remembered quite a bit. It's a shame that two episodes are still missing, and two episodes are only available as transfers from home recordings (meaning poor sound and visual quality(.

Star Trek: Discovery.

Watched the first two episodes, seen better and seen worse. Just a bit dull and predictable and not convinced in the slightest about the acting. Next episode is in just under two weeks, might give it a try, might not.
