    Watched the Irishman yesterday, 3.5 hours of my life I’m not getting back.

    3.5 Hours!

    We struggle to find time to watch a 2h movie….

    ^unless you’re a fan of Carrie-Anne Moss, I wouldn’t bother. It also develops the Trish/Patsy character, but I found her almost as unsympathetic as the lead. I’ve given up on S3 as it just gets worse IMO.

    Thanks, thought it might go that way. Needs a proper villain.

    This thing where netflickers are putting a film in cinemas and streaming it from the same date, I don’t like it. The Two Popes is very good, not sure I’d have seen it in the cinema had I known.

    My mistake, it’s streaming later in Dec. Glad to have seen it big screened.

    Quirky documentary on Prime – it’s from 2016 though, and shit happens so fast in the world these days…

    Follow The Money – a group of British docu-makers takes a 10 dollar bill to the geographical centre of the U.S. (South Dakota IIRC) and follow it and its temporary owners on its journey. Some wonderful and strange and likeable characters in there. I’ve watched around half of it so far and what I’ve seen has been good fun. Give it a try.

    The second series of Final Space has just dropped on Netflix. I’m only one episode in and it’s easily as good as the first. Hopefully it carries on in that vein.

    The Irishman was ok I thought not great. I couldn’t stop wondering what was up with De Niro’s eyes some sort of colored contacts or something?

    The eyes were part of the deaging thing.

    They start off very bright, and end up milky.

    Prisoner on Netflix

    Proper slow burn thriller directed by Denis Villeneuve with Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. Very good acting and script. Excellent plot that twists and turns like a twisty-turny thing.

    I thought The Irishman was great. The deaging thing is a distraction best ignored really.

    It’s not Goodfellas 2, I’ve heard complaints that it’s “not much of a gangster film” it’s not really. It’s verging on Docudrama.

    Wasn’t too long, we’ll until the last 15 mins or so which dragged a bit.

    Agreed. The problem with it was that they still walked like old men, but it didn’t detract from an excellent film. Pacino even managed to reign in his shouty over acting.

    Watch it in too halves that’s what I’ve done.

    I’m enjoying Orphan Black

    Enjoyed Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. Especially the Fat (olive oil) episode as it’s filmed in Liguria, Italy. Stunning in 4K and makes me want to go back to Rivierabike!

    I thought The Irishman was pretty good, as has been said not much actual gangster action and not really anything new in terms of plot but worth watching all the same. Probably would have been disappointed if I’d paid to watch it in a cinema though.

    Made it to episode 3 of Jack Ryan and got bored. Worth persevering?

    Not sure if it has been mentioned before, but for those watching Mind Hunter, on Sky there is a documentary on Ed Kemper. Kemper on Kemper I think it was called. Well worth watching. The mannerisms and tone are exemplified perfectly in Mind Hunter.

    I binge watched both series last week, on the whole it’s pretty good. It’s very formulaic and has a fair few moments that challenge credibility/the laws of physics but some good characters and well acted. I never really got into shows like 24 but the Jack Ryan series have less episodes and once s1 gets going (probably at e3) it sustains it well.

    Damnation – a drama about a group of farmers striking in 1930’s midwest America.

    This got pretty violent very quickly and had me hooked, burnt through the whole 10 episodes in a week of train commutes!

    No series 2 though ☹️

    Really good and I now have a new found respect for Sacha Baron Cohen.

    Marcella seems good, only watched 3 episodes, but started well…

    Not Netflix but well worth a viewing on iplayer – Ladhood. Its brilliant! Its just 6 episodes and we did them in one sitting. Genuinely laugh out loud funny. A thirty-something trying to analyse the dysfunctional aspects of his own character and masculinity generally by flashbacks to his youth, growing up in Leeds

    just finished ‘Who killed Little Gregory’ not really into crime documentaries but her indoors does within 10 min i was hooked even had to google if it really was a true story!! massive twists and intrigue and unbelievably all true!

    Definitely recommend but its a limited release so not sure how long will be on for.

    I’ve been meaning to watch it for ages, but for some reason I haven’t yet.

    In fairness though, I’ve been using MF multiple times as day since I saw Richard Prior (on Video) as a teen.

    not sure if its been mentioned already but we’re really enjoying narcos, drama series based on true story of pablo escobar and the columbian cartels. really good tv with flashbacks to old tv footage.

    “Mid90s” – Jonah Hill’s little film about a kid getting in with a bunch of skaters is on Netflix. Just found it, watched it, loved it. Cool as. (ie. not likely to get it’s own thread 😉 )

    If you’ve not seen it and are interested in design, Abstract is just an absolutely fantastic series.

    It follows a specialist in each episode in their work, including architect, stage designer, typeface design, toy designer etc, etc.

    It really is absolutely fascinating and really, really inspiring.

    Totally recommend it.

    If you like bonkers body horror blended with unpredictable plotting then you can do worse than The Perfection.

    Bound to offend someone – I really enjoyed it and had no clue where it was going.

    Bits of Cronenberg dotted around but with a shiny veneer.

    The Witcher seems like it might be Ok watched episode 1 yesterday.

    Strongly recommend Hail Satan?

    Documentary movie about the satanic temple, possibly not what you’d expect if you were not familiar with the story already.

    Watched a couple of episodes of The Witcher on the ferry crossing today, seemed ok, have read it’s a nod towards Game of Thrones, which without Sky has passed me by.

    have read it’s a nod towards Game of Thrones, which without Sky has passed me by.

    The Witcher books came out first I think.  I know it from the game.

    Gave up on The Witcher after two episodes. I had no idea what was going on.

    Not a Netflix production but is now on Netflix. I downloaded the Death of Stalin for my Eurostar trip home on Thursday. Very good fun and well worth a watch.

    I don’t know if it’s already been mentioned but we watched Lion last night. Amazing story, emotional and absorbing. The little guy who plays the main character is outstanding. I’ve also been watching Ken Burns WW2 series which is very time consuming but so much information and some incredible personal stories.

    +1 for Mid 90s

    Cracking coming of age film that avoids a lot of the associated clichés.
