Seen all three. Free Solo is the heart stopper in terms of the action for me, his story is interesting and it will be facsinating to see where it goes.Posted 5 months ago
Dawn Wall was simply epic because of the story. Caldwell comes across as an amazing bloke.
As said Valley Uprising is a good film and in many ways I wish I’d seen it first.binnersSubscriber
Planning on watching The Dirt tonight. If you’ve read the book (and if you haven’t, you really should!) there are a few things spring to mind which you really wouldn’t want to put on film. Or be allowed too.
Drug-crazed debauchery taken to truly epic levels. Yay! 😃Posted 5 months agobombjackMember
If anything I thought the dirt was a little too cheerful. Fine as a series of skits (you could see the Jeff Tremaine Jackass influence) but could have been an awesome mini series if they’d just followed the chapters of the book. Yes it was full of drugs / boobs / booze, but I dont think it got across just what di-k heads Motley Crue really were both to other people and themselves, how few **** were really given, and hence why they were SO big.Posted 5 months ago
Loved the day in the life of Tommy Lee section, thought MGK was spot on in his portrayal of a hyper active wide eyed kid who somehow made it big. Good for a Friday night with the boys and beers movie, but should have been longer (and not screwed with the timeline quite so much).WillHMember
Dawn Wall was great. I have no interest in climbing, only watched it based on recommendations from this thread, but it’s quite powerful. I vaguely recall the news when they got back from Kyrgyzstan, but hadn’t linked him to this movie.
After Life was good. A few laughs, a few moments when the room got unexpectedly dusty… Gervais is a bit Marmite in terms of his comedy, but he certainly understands pathos. I enjoyed The Office, I still think the Tim and Dawn storyline is one of the greatest ever love stories! Second only to Ted and Ralph. After Life is no Derek though, that had me properly crying in places, and laughing through the tears.
Have just watched the first two episodes of The O A. Weird but intriguing, looking forward to seeing where it goes*.
Love, Death + Robots… Watched the first one, loved the visuals. Loved the story, too, except. Dunno. Second one was dull, only watched the first third then skipped it. Third one was visually stunning, the mix of photo-realism with anime highlights is really effective. Wondering if they used motion-capture, some of the movement is so life-like.
But why is the lead (female) essentially naked for most of it? It’s a great storyline as it is, between that and the superb visuals there’s more than enough entertainment. The nudity adds nothing to the whole thing (sweet baby Jeebus I’m sounding old here!). Don’t get me wrong, I was a teenager in the late 90’s, I put the nascent web to good use researching certain types of Japanese culture 🤫, but everyone’s got to grow up at some point. Except the creators of Love, Death + Robots, apparently. Here’s a chance to get something new into the mainstream. Proper thought-provoking, conversation-inducing stories, animation for grown-ups, sublime animation. And tits for no apparent reason. I’ll probably watch the rest at some point but hopes are low at the moment.

You’re new to David Fincher?
Tried using Netflicks yesterday. Can anyone tell me a) how to generate a simple list of what titles are available? That random genre system is annoying. b) If there’s no answer to my first question, how on a laptop to prevent the preview clips running on the menu page.Posted 5 months ago
3 episodes into the oa,series 1 not sure whether to take it to the end of series 2 or not yet. Line of duty might get a run through as I liked it before. Difficult to commit to an on going series. I might have to stick with short movies. Triple frontier was watchable , but very rushed and story was not executed as well as it should have.Posted 5 months ago

Best listing for netflix.Posted 5 months agoDezBSubscriber
Watched The Highwaymen yesterday (Netflix must be the best invention to occupy an off-sick day!). Funny how Woody Harrelson has become a quality sign in films. He is brilliant in this too. As is !YES! Kevin Costner! So much better as an old geezer than an action hero. Top quality film. The real stuff at the end is fascinating too. Not sure it’s quite up there with Warren & Faye’s version, but def worth a watch.Posted 5 months ago
