    Join the club, finished it and thoroughly enjoyed it. Best season of the 4 definitely.

    Watched it and thought it was okay, watchable but nothing more.

    The new series of Fauda is just class, the last 2 episodes to go tonight

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,549 ✭✭✭ Mr Crispy

    Is Fauda nuanced in its depiction of the region's conflict? Given how widely praised it is, I'm assuming it's not just Israeli propaganda dressed up as gritty drama?

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,133 ✭✭✭ billyhead

    I tried Vesper, but lost interest after 20 minutes.

    I see the new remaking of All Quiet on the Western Front is available on Netflix now.

    (I have watched and did like the 1979 version)

    It got 7.8 on IMDB. Worth a watch, all 2:28 hours of it?

    Let's see...

    My interest rose for Lockwood being from Joe Cornish, then lowered by its young cast and presumed YA origin and tone. Shame; was a similar reaction to The Midnight Club: ooh new thing from Mike Flanagan!! Oh, it's for/starring teenagers.

    the reviews are pretty good for it so i'll give it a go

  • Registered Users Posts: 29,221 ✭✭✭✭ gmisk

    I have watched the first three episodes and it is enjoyable, the lead trio are very good and it's a really interesting premise.

    I would say it skews pretty young. When it comes to Joe Cornish stuff I would say if you like the kid who would be king you might enjoy it.

    Ah Terminator 3: a film that is genuinely brilliant in its last 10 minutes, to the extent it's an entirely different movie from the preceding runtime. And one of those sequels that has become retroactively better thanks to all the even shíttier follow-ups that came after it. Not good as such, just more accomplished and coherent.

    I have four series in my Continue Watching List that that are ready to play their episodes - but I finished watching them several weeks ago.

    I know how to remove them but does anyone know what causes this?
