Star Wars: Rogue One.

Still really like it. Looking forward to Andor.

Hehe! Good point. I have "hilariously" started Mrs Tips in the style of Frank.

Gotta agree that this is an absolute corker of a prog. Loved every page.

Roddenberry would be proud that you have embraced his utopia of a society where money is meaningless.

Working our way through SEINFELD on Netflix still. Has there been a better comic creation than George Costanza? Kramer is a bit of a Mary Sue but brilliantly played.

Having seen him at the BAFTAs, he might need to work on his self-confidence and flamboyance.

Ncuti is great in Sex Education (which is also pretty good). And apparently he is a big hit with the younger generation do am thinking this is a pretty solid choice.

So I enjoyed that. Far from perfect and quite a few "fan pleasing" moments thrown in (which I liked... Especially the one they had kept pretty quiet). Two or three episodes too long as sadly is most telly these days. And Michelle Hurd is just terrible.

BUT despite all that I enjoyed it.

A weekend trip to Edinburgh meant I got to return to the wonderful Filmhouse and catch their screening of Once Upon a Time in the West, part of their Morricone season. I'd only seen this on a tv before, and this was an entirely different experience. The pacing is slow, almost to the point of parody, but it is absolutely riveting throughout. The soundtrack, and the matching of the visuals to it (it was made before the film) might well be unmatched in cinema.

Anyway. Well worth seeing if it appears on a big screen near you.

I love that movie. Better than any of the Eastwood Sergio films (which are all excellent too). I've only seen it on a telly screen, but it must have been an exceptional experience seeing it on a proper cinema screen.

I don't really notice the pacing being slow. As you say its so engaging it zips by. That opening scene at the railway is practically glacial but not a moment feels wasted.

And imagine what it would have been like to see it at cinema at the time of release "Oh, here comes Henry Fonda, the goodie..."

Although it's not quite as good as my Thought Bubble idea. Oh well.

Only LAWLESS and SURFER doing it for free me at the moment. Just can't get into the Diamond Dogs or Death Cap or even the Dredd. And text pieces not working for me either.

The score is magnificent too. Apparently the poster had people thinking it was animated which put people off.

Timothy Dalton is having a ball, isn't he?

Too Generic.

The stories could mostly be set anywhere and the protagonist doesn't have to be Nolan for them to work.  It's a bit like the defintion of a poor advert; when you can describe the advert without describing the product.
