He's very expressive. He would make a good actor.

I tried to get in to that show but I just did not like it. It made little sense. I'm enjoying Shannara Chronicles on MTV, The Magicians on SyFy and if you can look past the 90210 teen angst, Shadowhunters on Freeform is ok.

Finished off the X files miniseries last night. A rambling, incoherent wrap up to a largely disappointing miniseries. One good episode out of 6 is not an acceptable hit rate.

Watched Meet the Patels last night on Netflix. Hilarious look into the Indian culture of marriage matchmaking.

Default Just watched an old 2001 documentary

I found this fascinating.

http://oneperfectshotdb.com/2016/03/...s-involvement/


A look behind the scenes while 2001 was still being made. Includes footage of the big centrifuge in operation, and lots of work on the concepts.


What struck me most though was the everyday objects that were NOT part of the film. Things like old fasioned phones, and printers, They really look like something from another historical age, whereas the sets and designs fo the film still look modern to my eyes.

Been giving "Heroes of Tomorrow" a go. Not really sure...

The characters are interesting, and not too one dimensional. Great to see Arthur Darville (Rory from Dr Who) delivering a good performance.

But the bad guy is just silly (Vandall Savage? Really?), and the actual 'super' powers are a bit daft. Worth remembering that it was DC who brought is "Arm fall off Boy". Yes, really.

Is 10 Cloverfield Lane a sequel to the 2008 film Cloverfield? If so is it any good because I really liked that, despite the handycam technique not being my favourite.

I've heard it's related, but haven't heard in what way. More importantly, I've been told it's a very good movie with John Goodman putting in a stellar performance.

Okay thanks Rigel, the trailer had already peeked my interest and I thought as much, just wanted to know someone's opinion that'd seen it.

Finally got round to seeing Star Wars EP VII, cant say it was great,lazy writing, same story almost as EP IV, Han did not seem to be in it at all acting wise.

Its another case of stunning CGI and VFX work let down by poor story, script and some of the acting.

Watching The Night Manager now, seems pretty good.

I'd put it as not as good as the original 3 but better than the prequels.

I thought the characters worked well, old and new.

The visual mood at times looked a lot more WW2, rather darl ank gloomy. I think that was OK.

As you say, really lazy to use the same story as the first film to such an extreme degree, it really did feel like a remake at times. Even quoting lines of dialogue.

As I feared the director took a few liberties with plot logic - the super weapon was just silly, and at one point I was utterly confused as to if they were on or off the Millennium Falcon.Which seemed to have got a lot boigger inside for no good reason.

Biggest disapointment was that I did not see one single cool new design. Not one.

Agreed Nick,

It was just to similar to EP IV and as you said no real new stunning stuff. I mean it looks like they took the Death Star and decided how to top that, well just make it a hollowed out planet. Going around sucking up the suns is eventually going to lead to the death of all life in the universe, utterly silly to me.

Yes it was nice to see some of the old ones there and some nostalgia but its meant to be a new story and characters, whilst there should be some nods to the originals it should not be handed over lock stock and barrel to them.

The VFX and CGI work was very good especially on JAAKU with the MF/TIE chase, although this hitting the sand all the time and then again crashing later on again made me wonder just how much an old junker could survive that.

Overall entertaining but just a rehash of EP IV and to close a rehash for my liking. As you said better than the prequels but not a patch on the originals.

Or am i to old now.

Watched two movies on DVD last night.

Forsaken starring Donald and Kiefer Sutherland, Brian Cox and Demi Moore. Overall, a nice little, classic western. But like most classic westerns, the plot line was way too predictable. However, they did do something with the showdown in the street I don't think I've seen before. Excellent performances by both the main and supporting cast.

The Last Witch Hunter with Vin Diesel. This was better than I was expecting but it's not a really outstanding film. Still, it was fun entertainment for a Saturday evening at a friend's house.

No it's not a sequel, if you go in expecting an action movie you'll be disappointed.

Basic plot, young woman is in a car accident in the middle of no where and wakes up in John Goodman's bomb shelter. Goodman and the other man in the shelter claim the United States has been attacked, by who they don't know and they'll have to stay in the shelter for at least a year. But are they telling the truth?

Goodman makes the entire film, straddling the line between sanity and psychopath.

If you stretch it you could make a connection of a sort to the other Cloverfield, but nothing directly and this one doesn't have the hand held camera.
