Watched the Irishman yesterday, 3.5 hours of my life I’m not getting back.
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.Posted 1 month agodeadlydarcyMember
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.Posted 1 month ago
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.Posted 1 month agoFuzzyWuzzySubscriber
Made it to episode 3 of Jack Ryan and got bored. Worth persevering?
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.Posted 1 month agobinnersSubscriber
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 LeedsPosted 1 month agochalky765Subscriber
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!

innocuously stumbled across Dolemite is my Name the other day, thought id stick it on to see what it was like… couldnt stop watching, best film ive seen in ages!!
been calling everyone/everything a **** ever since…!
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.Posted 1 month agokayak23Subscriber
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.Posted 1 month agostevenmenmuirMember
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.Posted 1 month ago
