The Punisher series on Netflix.
Best one of the Marvel/Netflix series I thought. Not perfect but still good.
Yeah. Good but not great. Savage in the last episode though. Wow! Watched first episode of Jessica Jones series 2 and nearly fell asleep.
The eyes. :shock:

We are on episode seven of Jessica Jones season two, it is very slow going. It's starting to feel like this will be another thirteen episodes that could be done in ten.

We're halfway through The Defenders, which is a hell of a lot better than Iron Fist. Not sure if it's bad casting or if Danny is just generally unlikeable in the comics.
I've only read the Ed Brubaker run of Iron Fist comics from around ten years ago and Rand wasn't like in the series but then he is a very established character in the comics. I liked the Iron Fist series, thought it was more consistent than the others.

Saw the new tomb raider with Steve (fekgekarp) yesterday. For those older RG posters he is fine BTW just doesnt post here very much I think now. Very average sadly and takes a long time to get going.

Ash vs Evil dead
This really should be getting more praise as its one of the very few series that is consistently entertaining

Annihilation

Empire gave it 5 stars. It’s okay and watchable but no way a 5 star film. Expected more

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

Bit harsh to talk about Steve like that on a public forum. Have you tried telling him how you feel?...

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.
