Quite surprised to find that Film 4 are airing 2016's High Rise tonight.
Kudos to my other half for hitting record earlier - it's already showing (likely still available on catch-up though).

One to delete from the Amazon wish list...

Based on the very familiar premise, I had to google the date Ballard wrote that last night to see if he'd had been reading Dredd or Wagner had been reading Ballard - turns out to be 1975 so old J.G. got there first!

Future Shock style Sci-fi on The Horror Channel at 9.00pm tomorrow night; The Signal.

Predictable (I twigged the twist as soon as they mentioned the clocks weren't working) but nevertheless satisfying genre film.

American Gods on the Amazon-telly-thing. S'good! Bit naff, but then Neil Gaiman's stuff has always been a little bit naff. Embrace the naffness and silliness and enjoy the creepy, slightly cracked world within a world that still encompasses all of the wonder of faith and sacrifice. Would watch just for Ian McShane of course.

I'm watching it - yeah it's a bit "atmospherically intriguing" (aka 'more metaphorical allegory than narrative') but visually intriguing and... yeah, I could just watch Ian McShane read from a coobook and be satisfied.

ITV 4 are showing Unforgiven tonight. My youngest have never seen this- time to fix that.

Unforgiven. Yeah, I think that might be my favourite Western. Well it's up there, anyway.

If you can't stand watching the election results tonight, Film4 has a cracking double bill of Lucy and Haywire.

Both better than Unforgiven.

Cosh has just lost his seat (in the cinema).
