Bit of VHS action

The opening is different to the DVD one, Japanese with English subtitles

Yep, both are worth watching again and again. Even better when baked as well, as you feel you are joining in with the cast and the writing crew! :mrgreen: I think its the same with Family Guy.

Seth Macfarlane is a genius just for making Mark Walhberg half likeable in these films.

Upstart Crow - the new sitcom from Ben Elton. Starring David Mitchell, Liza Tarbuck and Harry Enfield. It's sort of a spoof on Shakespeare. Feels very similar to Blackadder, what with its use of language and the historical setting. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting. Elton has had a bad run of sitcoms of late(The Wright Way and Blessed) anyone?). I can't say I found it particularly funny, and it's not groundbreaking - but compared to his more recent work, it's passable. I think one of the problems that he has, is that he's seen as yesterday's man and sitcoms are different now, what with things like The Office, Extras and Peep Show - the format of his new show is quite old fashioned.

Lincoln, good film, great cast, great acting, bit overly long though. Like many DDL movies I find, it's good but I'd probably never watch it again.

11.22.63, episodes 1-5, really enjoying this.

Captain America: Civil War

My only criticism is that it could and should have been two films, one concentrating on Zemo and Bucky and the other concentrating on the Accords, apart from that it was fab.

Spider-Man felt like he had been there all along and I instantly liked Tom Holland as Peter Parker and his lines at the airport were fantastic but then the whole airport scene was. Black Panther was good and a hell of a lot less annoying than the comics version which was good.

Actually, the only other thing I didn't like was that some characters felt a bit meh for being there. All really well written and well acted (RDJ in particular) but others just made an appearance more than an actual role.

Also still love Black Widow's fighting style and Aunt May was hot...

American Horror Story season 1. Watched the first episode or two when it first launched and passed on it. Going back to it, it's pretty good, there's a lot more going on and multiple stories running as you get the history, got to be quite addictive so I watched the final 3 episodes last night. A grower, though I wasn't loving the end. Another show like Fargo where every season is different, so my daughter tells me.

I'm not far from the end of series 2. The stories and characters are all different, but you get some of the same actors across the series. I've really enjoyed it so far, both series.

Nightmare City.

Gloriously cheesy early 80s Italian zombie film. Made a nice "double feature" with Zombie Flesh Eaters.

Captain America: Civil War, superb. :D

My one complaint would be that some of the action was edited a tad too snappy for my liking, but that's a small gripe, the action was still some of the best I've seen in recent years from Hollywood.

Also watched The Double, with Richard Gere. Decent twisty spy movie, the twists that i didn't see coming lifted it just above average.
