The new 'Robin Hood' it was a bit of a mess, weird story, wrong choice of support actors (esp Marian), bad wardrobe choices and lots of other problems

The last ever episode of Catastrophe on Channel 4 - a brilliant ending to a truly original and moving comedy series.

Close starring Noomi Rapace - It was a decent watch for what it was, didn't outstay it's welcome.

Revenger - Really good fighting scenes, unfortunately the rest of the film was dismal. Ended up just skipping through and watching the fight scenes, took 45mins to watch a two hour film.

Don't understand why they keep remaking movies like this; King Arthur; etc. Nobody wants them. (And I'll even admit the Russell Crowe version of Robin Hood was half entertaining, i'll only watch this new one cause I like the director.)

I want them. I like a good Robin Hood or King Arthur tale. What I don't understand is how so many get it wrong.

Crazyhead.

A six episode British series shown on Channel 4 a couple of years back. It's about two women who can see demons and have to stop the upcoming apocalypse. Really enjoyed it, is a shame that it never received a second series.

I watched the original Mad Max in the wee hours.

Mrs had me watch the reboot when she visited as shes got a thing for Tom Hardy and I'd been meaning to rewatch it for a while given how much I'm awake, I think I'll carry on the trilogy tonight.

Alita: Battle Angel. Looks amazing but a little hollow. Obvious sequel hint. Lego Movie 2. Not as funny as the original.Stan and Ollie, pretty straightforward but pretty heartwarming at the end though.

Season 8 so far is okay, no doubt they'll do the usual bit and have good episodes right near the end so we keep with it. A lot of crap filler before hand but the whisperers are cool

Life. Not very original but quite compelling and chilling nevertheless.

The Umbrella Academy. Essentially X-Men meets Watchmen. I really enjoyed this, it's quite surreal but it plays it sincere and was entertaining.
