Kate on Netflix, not too bad but not awesome just somewhere in between.  In the John Wick/Nobody type of action flick with bone crunching violence but not as good as either.  About a female assassin who has been poisoned by some radioactive gunk and she was not has 24 hours left to live and get revenge, the twist if you could call it that was pretty predictable you could see it coming a mile but off but some nice action and tha main actress is good at what she does, set in Tokyo so it looks great all neon and flash.  Definitely worth a watch if you like action but also definitely a Netflix joint but not a waste of 90 minutes.

Shang-chi, best marvel movie since Guardians.  Slick fight choreography, fun not to annoying sidekick that actually has a point rather than just there for the jokes, and some fun cameos who ever thought we’d see Trevor again.  Fun enjoyable couple of hours I think worth it even if you are a bit burnt out from Marvel movies.  First half better that second half and like all Marvel moves es climax is a bit battle in the sky but still a fun time.

Been watching The Girl from Nowhere on Netflix with the missus.  A Thai show sort of anthology in that each episode is it’s own story but the titular Girl From Nowhere is in each one, she is named Nanno which is Thai for Karma and most episodes revolve around her appearing at a new school and teaching students, teachers or generally bad bullying types a lesson I n Karma (som na na as my missus sAys, you get what you deserve).  Some very good episodes in its two seasons but some are quite confused in what they are trying to say.  Good if you like something different from your usual western shows.

Jungle Cruise more like Jungle Snooze 😴
Actually it was alright if a bit to much like The Pirates movies, helps that I seem to like anything with The Rock in it and Ms Blunt is one of my favourite actresses working today.  Tried to watch Snake Eyes but that one truely put me to sleep, might try again at a late date.

I can’t wait for this, I hope it does well as they have only filmed the first half of the book so it’s just a part 1 and the second part hasn’t been budgeted or confirmed yet so if it doesn’t break the bank we might just end up with 1/2 the story  :'(

Radbacker, have you seen Red Cliff? It's a John Woo directed film of the Red Cliff battle (Wei vs Wu). I'm not sure how it resonates for an audience unfamilair with the sory and characters and it's about four hours long but if you know the story well worth sitting through.
Funny you should mention Red Cliff as I was going to bring it up in my original post but edited it out.  One of my favourite 3 Kingdoms movies absolutely epic but as you mentioned very long and much better if you are familiar with the 3 Kingdoms.  Wasn’t Woo going to make more 3K movies?

Dynasty Warriors on Netflix, yes based on the game where you hit the x button lots.  Actually quite enjoyed it, typical big brash Chinese (?) blockbuster, about as dumb and vacuous as your usual Hollywood tripe but what can I say I like tripe!!!  I love 3 Kingdoms era stories and this one serves it up very fantasy like.  More to. One too as only tells the first part of the epic tale.

I don’t want one yet but I need to make sure I have a PS5 when the new Battlefield comes out as last gen versions are effectively going to be a different game from what I’ve heard.

Sweet Tooth on the Netflix.
Based on a comic I haven’t read so can’t judge it as an adaptation but on its own pretty good.  Like a lot of Netflix shows it looks good and is acted pretty well.  I’m not sure if the comic has the same concept behind it or it’s been updated due to Covid-19 but very timely comment on pandemics and what some people will do to survive, up to episode 3 and there is a pretty disturbing scene in there at a survivors day party when someone starts showing symptoms of the sickness.
I love Sweet Tooth and the child actor that plays him is great but also interested in the other stories that are playing out.  Recommend you give it a watch you’ll know after 2 eps if you want to keep going.

I love Donnie Darko one of my favourite movies.

Watched Nobody last night, bone crunching fun, the previews make it look like a John Wick ripoff but it’s quite different.  The violence is next level brutal where Wicks violence is quite comic bookish and all gun fu type this is just so damn cruchy and really makes you cringe with each hit and shot.  One for fans of action movies

I’m enjoying Jupiters Legacy (though I keep calling it Jupiters Children for some reason). The acting could be a bit better but by episode 3 it’s caught my attention, it’s nothing we haven’t read before but not been done ✔️ n a story before.  M

Well at least the book series is actually finished so they have that to pull from, and the middle slog from the series (book 6 and 7) can be condensed down quite easily considering those two books only seem to cover about 4 weeks book time,  I’m very hopeful for the show.  Can’t wait for the first preview the teasers released so far have been good (they just released a Lan for teaser a couple of days ago and hope really a true teaser (5 seconds long!!) it’s looking good).  I really hope the show does well, I’m rereading the books in perpetration

Despite its YA trappings (late teen protagonist, love triangle etc) I am enjoying Shadow and Bone quite a bit.  I like the Tsarist setting rather than Anglo, seemingly good acting and quite good to look at, and think Netflix are getting pretty good at these Fantasy gigs. 
On a similar note I am eagerly awaiting Wheel of Time from Amazon as it is one of my favourite Fantasy series that definitely needs a bit of money thrown at it to make a good adaptation and certainly needs to be a series as there is no way it would be possible as movies (unless they wanted to make a 7 or 8 movie octology?)

Watching The Irregulars on Netflix.  Doing an episode a night and must say quite into it by episode 3.  I like the structure with each episode being it’s own thing but having an overall story gradually being revealed makes it feel like old school TV rather than the usual binge TV we get on Netflix and Amazon.  Is a different take on the Holmes story (episode 3 and we still haven’t even met Sherlock), the young actors are all pretty good.  Belle thought it may have been based on a comic but it doesn’t seem so as I can’t find information any where.  I’d recommend you give it a look if your into Holmesian stories or just like a good mystery with a touch of horror.

Finally got back to the cinema on the weekend for Godzilla vs Kong, boy am I glad I watched this in the cinema.  I think it’s a perfect big screen blockbuster in my opinion, I forgot how loud our cinema was my ears were nearly bleeding!!! I live all the new Godzilla movies and I also really enjoyed Skull Island too so it was probably a given that I’d like this.  Also not sure if it was just because I haven’t been to the cinema for a year but the FX work on was amazing it was really like they just filmed a huge monkey and lizard fighting!!
CGI has either really gone up another level in the last year or they spent extra time while the movie was delayed polishing it.  I loved it oh and I’m on team Kong😊
