I just finished watching a film about Stockholm syndrome. It started out terrible but by the end I really liked it.

Watched the new She Ra on Netflix, was good. My five year old daughter loved it so it definitely did the job there.

Also watched the first series of Victoria, it was OK.

A New Hope on the big screen, with an orchestra playing the score. Tbh, the orchestra was too good, they were a bit redundant. It was just like watching the movie in the cinema, they played it identically, so most of the time you'd forget they were there. Fantastic job in terms of replicating the score, but not ideally presented. I think if they'd flashed up smaller video projections of the various bits of the orchestra either side of the main screen as they played their parts, it might have brought them to the fore a little more and given some appreciation of their work. Amazing just how many violinists/cellists/horn players it takes to make that sound though.

Paradise PD.

Well some episodes as it was pretty awful. I don't mind 'adult' humour when it's funny but this just didn't pull it off in the slightest.

Watched the latest episode of Escape at Dannemora (Benicio Del Toro is in it)

Based on the real life story of two convicts. Really enjoying it so far

It is amazing how much there is to watch. STILL got to watch Man in the High Castle and many other shows, way too much to catch up on. Need a few weeks off to watch it all !

GHOSTBUSTERS 2016

pretty good really, nicely done effects and kate mckinnon is the best damn thing in this ..... and THAT ENDING man, when something makes ME gasp it's that good, the story is very nicely done!

but it all felt too IRRELEVANT, maybe having too much improv in the script led to not enough of the backstory required of rowan north, just having base lines about it. the main ghosties didn't really have anything to do and should have had much more but the ending balloon parade was funny :lol:

all in all a decent seven
one off for dan aykroyds' terrible new yoik accent
