    Enjoyed Passengers recently but tonight I watched Paul again on itv2

    IMO Babylon 5 has not aged well.

    I watched it for the first time relatively recently. It’s really good but the first season is terrible.

    Live,Die, Repeat

    That’s “The Edge of Tomorrow” in the UK.

    Oh yeah, Killjoys is good too

    It wasn’t great at the time. You had to stick with it for things to unfold after series 1, then it got VERY good… Until they rushed everything at the end.

    [The Edge of Tomorrow] indeed; but I watched it in the US.

    Ahh yes “are you an effective team?” I forgot about that, fun film worth watching.
    Live, die, repeat is also a good romp.

    His latest, “The Mummy” is very odd and bland.

    Not seen bright, but my teenage role-playing self is outraged that they’ve ripped off Shadowrun

    I liked Bright.

    Wing Commander, good space battles, terrible acting and aliens.

    Brights not as bad as it’s made out to be , I enjoyed it.

    Valerians typical luc b so worth a watch.

    I didn’t really think much of the new blade runner thou.

    Life struggled to watch it to the end.

    I know it’s no longer Friday but I’d recommend Snowpiercer.

    Thumbs up for Passengers and a special award for the cool spaceship, thanks for the recommend.
    The ideas and long story arcs compensate for the outdated sfx in Babylon 5.
    Edge of Tomorrow was indeed a good romp, I couldn’t get into Killjoys but am looking forward to Altered Carbon (I get the feeling that Richard Morgan is not particularly well liked by Charlie Stross and his contemporaries).
    I accidentally watched Paul recently, no spaceship awards but worth the time. Oblivion or Europa Report tonight.

    Tron Legacy ? (not space, but there are ships n things similar in it)

    Why do you say this?
    Not totally sure they needed to add more to the Kovac’s back story but we will see, looking forward to it but ready, as ever, to be disappointed

    killjoy’s really? I preferred dark matter but even deleted that unwatched this week

    I’ve been told by a usually good judge of film that Beyond Skyline is surprisingly good

    That was exactly my thought too. (I used to GM Shadowrun in SR3 days.)

    I’ve never sat down to watch a movie and turned it off before the end in my puff. Until i watched that drivel. Only good thing was the large alien ‘mech’ creature design. Not even a so bad it’s good, or funny or anything, it made no sense and was just pure shite. Your mate must have been very, very drunk.

    Anyone mentioned Travellers?

    Netflix original, surprisingly ropey at first, but actually gets going eventually. The premise still seems to contain a gaping hole but there’s enough left unknown that it might actually be addressed. But the character and contextual depth is to the usual high Netflix standard if you watch carefully.

    No spaceships at all though.

    At least we now know you have low expectations & prefer the formulaic dross

    I have low expectations & prefer the of formulaic dross. I can enjoy it though. Would you care to recommend anything more high brow than Guardians of the Galaxy?

    GotG is a fine example of its genre, it’s not pretending to be avant-garde or cutting edge to hide a story thats been used so many times before that you can work out what the reveal is long before the end.

    I think you’ll like oblivion though, it’s got space ships and everything!

    I thought it was a rip off of Alien Nation, but there you go. No desire to watch it.

    The only thing with passengers is………he condemned someone to death chosen because she was fit,then lied to her,then started a relationship with her.10/10 for creepy weirdness.
    Watch this

    ‘Beyond skyline’

    Aliens and spaceships a’plenty.

    Your right .. i didn’t really get why people like the movie due to this.

    I didn’t really like it as it’s a bit of a downer movie IMHO

    Saw The Martian the other day…it was ace. Really enjoyed it.

    Full of flu at the moment so watched a couple of recommendations on here. Good shout on Life but Beyond Skyline was garbage. I’d seen the original and it was a good watch,the follow up was dire, the best bit was the outtakes at the end.

    Must have cool spaceships, preferably recent

    From the OP ^^

    I suppose on here it’s like asking for suggestions for a rigid bike and being recommended a YT Tues 😀

    Fair play for making it that far

    Oblivion was good, in its non-high brow way, no prizes for spaceships though.
    Good call from Rorschach.
    The Martian only worked for me as a book – but really did work, I totally believed it.
    Europa Report tonight, I’m still not decided whether Firefly or BSG gets a rewatch.
    How is Cloud Atlas?
