I tend to stick it on to see. After about 10/15 minutes of not understanding what's being said I usually figure out it's a foreign language show.

I stuck with this until mid way through the last episode before giving up. What could have been an excellent documentary actually turned to drivel by the end of the second part. 

If you’ve not seen it, Spike Lee’s Summer of Sam is terrific.

Just binged watched the whole 5 episodes of Halston. Ewan McGregor is outstanding and pleased to hear that the final song was Grangemouth's finest  The Cocteau Twins - Pearly Drewdrop Drop.

Started watching some Roman Empire docu/drama type of show, never read or looked into the history much but after watching one episode of series 3 I'm hooked. 

Anyone seen it before? I wanna know if I should go back to season 1 or just watch it after this one, I don't think it's chronological? 

Edit - Steaming on through season 3, I'm quite bemused (@Genuine Hibs Fan) at the idea they keep finding heirs to the throne and this is extremely important but then also keep on killing their heirs for "wanting the throne".

Finished Making A Murderer. Have no idea why there was a second season, they could've done the whole thing in an episode. 

Good series over all, I've seen people say the second series is so slow paced to kinda show you how frustrating and slow paced the appeals system can be. It did certainly drill home how futile it seems for justice to prevail against the US judiciary system.

Army of the Dead

Really enjoyed this. When the trailer shows you that some of the zombies could work together I expected it to be a complete cheese-fest but it was nothing like that tbh. If you're willing to accept people coming back from the dead then you can't say it's a ridiculous suggestion that they could be some way co-ordinated I suppose.

It was a decent enough story and some of the action scenes were impressive with plenty of gore. It was a bit short on comedy for me but I suppose if they did too much comedy it would steer towards the cheesy side of things that I wasn't hoping for so I can't really complain.

Overall it was a relatively 'quick' 2 and a bit hours and was decent viewing.

7/10

I'm looking forward to watching this. Love big Dave and have swung back around on thinking Zack Snyder is a dumb but fun director. The guy seems like a total dafty but comes across as a good guy.

I found this on Friday. Have been ill this weekend, so have watched 11 episodes and the spin-off movie. Its class and she is amazing.

Big Dave getting to show pretty much all of his acting prowess in Army of the Dead made me happy. He's probably the best actor to come from wrestling in my lifetime. Most of them seem to kind of settle into one groove, but Bautista is very much capable of anything and is a genuinely great actor.

The movie gets 8/10 from me btw. I like it's wee plays on the Romero movies and Snyder's self awareness on his own tropes.

I do think Cena has a great career as a comedy actor ahead of him and hopefully Suicide Squad showcases that but made up for big Dave who seems like a top guy who’s picked his roles perfectly and can easily slot into a host of genres. Still cool as hell he was in Bladerunner 2049. I’ve never seen an actor more likely to be in John Wick that hasn’t already starred either.

Surely only a matter of time. There's a John Wick 4 that's almost completely uncast at this point, as well as The Continental which I'm assuming will be almost all new characters, outside of Lance Reddick of course.

There's a Highlander reboot being made with Henry Cavill in the lead role, presumably Connor Macleod or a similar character (reboot means they could have an original character I suppose).

Big Dave would be absolutely class as the Kurgan.

I'll watch it anyway at some point, but does Army of the Dead have anything to do with Zack Snyder's remake of Dawn of the Dead? Always a bit surprised that never got a sequel. I'm assuming the answer's no, as I haven't seen anything tying the two together.

Also, I wouldn't hold your breath about the Highlander remake. That's literally been "in the works" since the turn of the millennium. Henry Cavill's as good a choice for this phantom film as any, though. Quite like him. Decent as Gerald of Nvidia and Superdude.

Other than the fact it's zombies, no. Stands on it's own.

Just watched Army of the Dead there and it fuckin rocks. Every protag in this has an impossibly high T count. Zack Snyder's class I'm glad the cultural feeling on him is swinging back round.

He certainly gets respect for having more perspective on superhero films than the weird fanboys who lost their heads at Scorsese

Read about this yesterday. Highlander is one of my favourite nostalgic films so I'm hoping they do it justice. I hope they secure the same soundtrack. I watched the film quite young and mind the scene with his wife dying and the Queen song "Who wants to liiiiiive foreeeeever" that stuck with me for a long time and had me very certain I would not want to live forever! 

Henry Cavill is my man crush too so he better do this justice, the real trick is casting the Sean Connery fella correctly.

Antonio Banderas as Ramirez perhaps?
