I watched Stranger Things Ep1. S1 last night. Got Netflix 1 month free trial. Will have to watch as many as I can before I ditch Netflix.

I like the cast. A lot of actors that were popular years ago. Good to see them back, Wynona Ryder, Matthew Modine..........

While you've got Netflix, check out "Making a murderer"
Well worth the watch.

Enjoyed that even though it played out a little one-sided.

Came across it after listening to the Serial podcast which was amazing. Season 2 was interesting but not as good.

Haha, the missus and I binge watched the whole first season over the weekend. It's a good series so far, despite taking lots of ideas from other films in the 80s. I do wonder where it will go in season 2.

Batman V Superman... Dawn of whatever, I don't care...

TERRIBLE TERRIBLE movie.

Some good action at times, but very hard to follow, even in the extended 3 hour version. Made no sense, would not recommend watching, other than MAYBE to get SOME backstory on future Justice League movies if they ever come out and you care...

2/10 (being generous)

 

 

Still Alice

Great movie. Drama about a well educated woman who is affected with early on set Alzheimers. Some pacing issues, but overall a good drama.

 

7/10 

 

Hardcore Henry

 

Interesting concept, better than I expected. It seemed like it was written as an FPS video game but adapted to a movie instead, just so much of the action and story seemed to be like a video game. I rather enjoyed it.

 

7/10

Finished watching the first season of Mr Robot. It started off really strong and got a little weak towards the end. I've been told season 2 brings it back to life a bit.

Saw Hardcore Henry a couple of weeks ago. Wonder if it was filmed with GoPro's...?

 

 

Watched Criminal over the weekend. Big name actors but it was a hit and miss affair for me. Not too demanding on the brain so a good way to relax for a bit anyway. 4/10

Binge watched Season 2 of Ricky Gervais' "Derek".  Not as good as Season 1 but one of the best written TV series I have ever watched.

Just saw 10 Cloverfield Lane. I suggest not watching any trailers or reading reviews. Just watch it not knowing what to expect.

I thought it was great.

I watched Pumping Iron. A 1975 doco about Arnie in his final year competing professionally as a body builder and his last Mr Universe title. Arnie really should have started in comedy back then because some of the things he says are just gold. But........ he was an A grade dick. I recommend watching it. It'll give you an insight into his true character. Basically there's nothing he wouldn't do to win. Explains why he's worth $300M

Watched "The Jungle Book" last night. Brought back memories of when I read the book as a kid. CGI was awesome. It was fun trying to work out who the actors were who did the voice overs. The kid that played the lead roll was great and so natural. A good movie to kick back and just relax.

Been watching Brock the 2 part movie..
Reasonably enjoyable, bit melodramatic. I did like the fact the makers chose to spend some time on Harry Firth, well done.
I also thought showing the 1982 bathurst cars with no tobacco livery was hilarious, Moffats 43 Rx7 and the JPS Bmw just looked wrong.
Was Brocky really such a ladies man or did channel 9 just run with it ?

Ghostbusters (2016)

Not nearly the train wreck I was expecting. It was a similar, but also different story to the original. My only real complaint is the hit you over the head with some of the call backs to the original. Most of them could have been done MUCH more subtly and been better integrated into the movie in my opinion. I was expecting utter failure of the all female Ghostbuster cast, but it didn't feel forced. The cameos is what made it good. The funniest moments I thought were from some of the supporting cast and not so much from the main cast.

 

7/10

 

The Purge: Election Year (2016)

Meh, it's kinda like the 3rd installment of the Saw franchise, you'll watch it only because you've already seen the first two, and want to see if there's anything new or different, but nothing to really get excited over... Not a terrible movie, but not one that needs to be watched. Centered around politics of the Purge more than the trials of The Purge itself, which I guess is to be expected from the title, but just didn't have the same feel as the first two.

 

5/10

Warcraft (2016)

Thought it was a decent fantasy movie. I'm not a WoW player so I'm sure that has a lot to do with not hating it. As a fantasy movie fan, it was enjoyable that it wasn't exactly like every other medieval fantasy movie with magic.

 

7/10

 

The Avengers 2.5.... I mean... Captain America: Civil War (2016)

Good Marvel universe movie, but was barely a Captain America movie and really another Avengers movie. I kept forgetting while watching it that it's a Captain America movie. Too many other Avengers with solo screen time to be a Cap movie IMO. It get get me excited about some of the other solo movies coming out that are extensions of characters introduced in this movie.
 

7/10

 

Straight Outta Compton (2015)

I enjoyed this movie, much more than I expected. I'm not an NWA fan, and only know some of their music, but I found this movie interesting even if some of it is embellished, which I know much of it is not. It was interesting to see some of the stories behind some of the songs and where some of the feuds came from. Casting was done well, and the movie was always engaging. I was a little sad when it ended.

 

8/10

 

Zootopia (2016)
 

Fun animated movie, and very different than many other animated movies. It's one that can be watched over and over again and see new things that weren't seen the first few times through.
 

8/10

By all accounts of people that knew him from his time in the paddock, he was quite a bell end. A very fast and talented bell end though.

 

I switched it off after 20 minutes, I couldn't stand the fake car noises, fake commentary and simulated (fake) racing sequences dubbed over the top of the classic footage.
