Finally saw Split as I am intending to see Glass next weekend. Pretty good and about to be the end of a very usual trilogy.
Only just got round to this , though ive not seen the first film at all. Not a bad film at all.

The League seasons two to seven.

Blitzed through them all before the episodes disappeared off Netflix. Really enjoyed the series, didn't know anything about the fantast football side of it but still thought that it was a funny show.

Just binged watched the entirety of Russian Doll on Netflix.

It's about a retro video game developer whose life seems to be stuck in a reset loop, so should be right up the alley of many on here.

Your scores seem to be off. You've seen mostly above average movies going by the numbers, yet the one that does hit the average 5/10 you say is an utter mess, so surely must be lower than that? Or are you scoring out of 15 or something odd like that?

I enjoyed Bohemian Rhapsody for the music, but thought the story was a bit of a mess. It's fair to move things around a bit for pacing, but I found some of the historical rewrites a bit jarring. File alongside The Doors and Sid and Nancy, I suppose.

Ah well, I'm sure the sing-along version will be a hit too.

Binge watched season 2 of Tin Star. Not bad, previous season was better but Tim Roth was excellent in it. One series down 18 to go (Might watch the Passage next)

yeah fantastic beasts has tremendous production but it's editing was literally done BY a five year old ..... it was AWFUL and almost ruins the narrative!
real shame and hope the crimes of grindelwald is much better

still it isn't LIFE though, now that was diabolical
