Umbrella Academy season 2 on Netflix, I really liked season 1 but season 2 is even more fun.  Strongly recommend it if you like your supes

Yeah went to the cinema for the first time in ages to watch something new,  Unhinged in which Russell Crow plays himself loosing his shit and road raging a poor lady.  Quite enjoyed it, some edge of the seat stuff in there and nasty violence, has a bit to say about our increasingly violent and disconnected world and fin r a change it doesn’t drag on too long (a lean 90 minutes).  I don’t get scared or squeamish watching horror movies but this did a very good job unnerving me as it seems all too possible and n today’s world, I definitely will think before I beep my horn next time I’m cut off in traffic 😊 I think a solid B+ of a movie but I might have given it a bit more than it was worth as I was so happy getting back to the cinema.

Watching an episode a night of the Brave New World Series, I remember as a youngun we were supposed to read the original novel for year 11 English lit class but I bugged out and never read it (qt the time I was a Fantasy nerd and not really into sci-fi especially something from the 30’s!!!), so I have a question for those that have read it - was it full of sex like the newer TV series because if so my teen self missed out.  I have no doubt the series has been modernised quite a bit from the original (a controlling AI probably didn’t feature in the original or if it did Aldis really was way ahead of the curve) but it is quite interesting and certainly well acted, as he world is also very well realised and you can see a decent amount of money up on the screen, I’m enjoying it quite a bit but was wondering what book lovers think of it compared to the original novel, also is the original novel still worth a read (I’m not big into classic sci-fi the oldest novel I read wAs Tiger Tiger by Alfred Bester but I did really enjoy it as I could see the ideas some of my favourite modern authors stole from it).

Speaking of Doom Patrol series 2 has just starred and the fist episode is a goody though a catch up would have been nice as I’d forgotten how the last series ended (was too long ago and too many other series in between for my old man brain to remember); no more narrator for spoiler reasons but still looks like it will be suitably bonkers.  I might have to pull out my GN of the Morrison run see how it differs.
Snow Piercer is pretty good and quite different to the movie which is also on Netflix in Oz at least and worth a watch.
Also been enjoying Stargirl, not rally familiar with with the JSA but it’s pretty entertaining and I would say currently the best of the Bertalini DC stuff on TV at the moment though the titular character can be a bit annoying I think she is supposed to, some very ambitious FX especially the opening episode.

Agree with Space Force watching an episode a night and really enjoying it, was the war games one last night.  Also greatly enjoying Snow Piercer series l, wasn’t sure if it would be different enough to the great movie that came out a few years ago but it is plus Jennifer Connley 😘 unusual for a Netflix show it’s getting an episode each week so if you want to binge your going to need to wait till it’s all dropped.

Another vote for Tron 2, one of my favourite belated sequels.  Another upvote for the soundtrack too, you can actually watch the movie with the soundtrack only and still get a pretty good gist of what’s happening especially if you are familiar with the first one.
Been on a bit of an Asian movie kick at the moment as SBS have been playing a nice collection this month, quite a varied collection such a Journey to the West 2, big budget and bombastic, League of Gods another big budget CGI fest but probably didn’t enjoy it as much as Journey not being familiar with the story but the two standouts for me were The Mermaid from Stephen Chow (Kungfu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer) which is very slapstick and bonkers but lots of fun and The Villainess which is top stuff.  Anyone in Oz can watch these for free on SBS on Demand

Watched the last episode and was real impressed that theykilled of Picard and then they didn’t  >:(, overall not a bad series but I’m sure I’m probably in the minority here in the I like Discovery more and am chomping at the bit to see where they take that after the end of last season.

West World season 3 has just started if you have a way to watch it.  I really liked the first 2 seasons and the s3 opener is a good one.  They’ve called it a soft reboot as we are now out of the park (though preview for ep2 looks like we may be heading back to the park for some of the characters).

6 Underground on Netflix.
It’s a Michael Bay movie through and through, my missus stopped watching 20 minutes in as all the jumping cuts we’re giving her a headache 😊 I actually enjoyed it but if you don’t like Bay don’t bother, lots of nonsensical plot hole, fast cut action, pretty nasty violence, leering camera on the female form like I said typical Bay

I don’t normally binge my Netflix shows but I devoured this over 3 nights.  I’ve got the collected box set of the comics and really liked it, the show is just as good, they have changed a few things (some of the keys do different things and a few changed/moved about characters) but it definitely has the vibe of the comic (have I mentioned how good the comic is? Read it if you haven’t) and they have changed things up enough that the series still throws a few supposes up.  I did guess pretty early the twist [/spoiler]having the face change key rather than the gender key gave it away a bit particularly if you have read the comic and were familiar with the whole Dodge thing that happens in it[/spoiler]
Waiting for next season now.  Still new Season af Altered Carbon drops this week to keep me busy

Birds of Prey - fun and enjoyable romp, some top action in it nice a clean and actually looks like real fights none of those quick cuts style fights that marred Charlie’s Angels.  Ewan is a right bastard in this and it was very satisfying when he got his come uppance at the end also[/spoiler]Hyena survived I was most upset when it looked like he’d copped it[/spoiler], missus really enjoyed it too.
Sonic - big Sega fanboy but really wondered how they could actually turn Sonic into a half decent movie but they did.  Nice breezy and enjoyable, the new much talked about Sonic design certainly suited it more than the original eldritch design, Sonic is annoying as f&$k which I’m thinking he should be an Carey as Robotnick is very good.  I liked Detective Pickachu more but this was still pretty good.  The missus fell asleep 10 minutes in and woke up with 10 minutes left, in her words “boring”

Chapter 3 is my favourite so far, never been the biggest fan of Bobba Fett but really liking Mando.  And me in gott the pure unadulterated fan service that was the last 5 minutes of this episode was spectacular, Madalorians everywhere

Watched the new CHARLIE’s Angels and supprisingly didn’t spontaneously grow a womb!!!  It was actually average to okay just wish th action scenes were cut a bit better.  That girl from Twilight was pretty funny in it and it had Sir Patrick Stewart it as well.  Doesn’t deserve the absolute drubbing it’s getting in the box office but in a world where the last Terminator flick can flop for being too WOKE (fuck I hate that terminology) what do you expect, probably better than the McG fiascos though

Well first episode was pretty good, sequel to the comic story (definitely was a giant squid in this universe not Dr Manhattan doing off) with the admittedly brilliant art direction from the movie.  Sets up a decent mystery in the first episode and while it does have some action not glorifying it like the movie (which while it all looked pretty cool kinda missed the point of the comic)
so Don Johnson character doesn’t last past the first episode but pretty sure we may see him in some flashbacks, anyone who’s seen it think he may have been Nightowl 2, Sister Night (or what ever her name is) was drinking from an Owl mug in his office and pretty sure they were owls hooting at the end when he was hanging from the tree
Looking forward to episode 2
