    No time to die was pretty awful. Craig has made only 2 good Bond films, Casino Royale and Skyfall.

    The new Candyman is absolutely dreadful.

    Watched The Terminal List, quality series, think 8 episodes

  • Registered Users Posts: 32,140 ✭✭✭✭ is_that_so

    Yeah pretty good, suffers from that annoying lack of lighting that some shows do for style. Think it would have been a lot more tense with only 6 episodes but 8 still satisfying enough.

    I'm 5 episodes in to Hacks and so far I don't see what all the fuss is about. The characters aren't likeable and it's not particularly funny either.

    Also found this about Hacks, a severe lack of humour in it. Stopped about there and didn't go back to it.

    I found the first season of Hacks decent and only really liked Deborah. Thought the second season was a big improvement; I found it funnier and warmed to the characters much more. I'd say if you're at the halfway point of S1 to persist with it. But if you're really hating the characters, give it a miss.

    Tokyo vice is an excellent series, think you need a starplayerz subscription for it though.

    Watching Clarkson's Farm again, what a great show and Kaleb is a cracking guy!!

    Hopefully that's the end of Bond. No need for a new actor. Let it rest in peace now.

    It will be back in a few years, zero chance they are going to stop making them, they are still hugely popular and profitable. I know the film's are of hugely variable quality.

    Always interesting to see who they pick to play him. Watching Slow Horses I think Jack Lowden could be a really good shout.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,936 ✭✭✭ Nigzcurran

    Just finished watching the boys, one of my favourite series of all time, savage stuff!

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,041 ✭✭✭ Wrongway1985

    Watched Birds of Prey with the Harley Quinn tag line movie, A pretty dumb flick! the compliment I can give it is it shades Justice League and Suicide Squad which were all kinds of rubbish.

    Mary Elizabeth Winstead plays the most interesting character but it wasn't until like the last third she entered the fray and by then I'd concluded it wasn't up to much and even at that she plays a girl who was left an orphan after her family is murdered who then trains to her adult years to become a bold natured vigilante (I think I may have seen this one before like!).

    The Birds of Prey are very much the supporting cast so the title of the picture is even a misfire.

    The casting of Margot Robbie as Harley Q you cannot argue with if alone for all the Halloween outfits based on her potrayal but this is seriously a shocking outing for her, not all her fault of course whoever came up with those monologues/narration that was either bland or outright annoying, bloody hell!

    I thought Birds of Prey was one of the better comic book outings of recent years. Its actually fun and has a sense of individual style, as opposed to the generic grey look of most of the others. The story is good too and if anything Harley is sidelined more than the other characters. I'm pretty sure the original title was just Birds of Prey, it's the Harley Quinn bit that got added in after because execs thought they needed it to attract an audience, but all it did was confuse things.

  • Registered Users Posts: 27,218 ✭✭✭✭ ~Rebel~

    Yeah, I loved Birds of Prey, reminded me a lot of Tank Girl - a proper over the top fun comic movie.

    I didn’t expect much from it, and it was a very pleasant surprise.

    The Senator is an excellent dramatisation of the Chappaquiddick incident.

    Few people in Ireland under the age of 50 know about this incident but it ended the prospect of a second Kennedy in the White House. Ted Kennedy challenged Jimmy Carter in 1980 and, though he conceded the nomination, Kennedy's speech at the Convention was transformative. In the eyes of many Democrats, Ted Kennedy became the greatest "mighta, shoulda, coulda" of American politics, if only he hadn't missed that bridge in Chappaquiddick. If Kennedy, not Reagan, had got to the White House in the 1980s, American would have been a very different place and we mightn't have had to wait for Bill Clinton to get the Good Friday Agreement. He was also the only man who could treat Haughey like a schoolboy.

    So many Irish people think they understand American politics, and especially the Kennedys, but they have very blinkered notions and a weak grasp on American history. This movie doesn't answer the key questions but it gives a wonderful flavour of that extraordinary summer of 1969. Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon the day after Chappaquiddick. Then came the Manson murders and Woodstock and the British Army in Northern Ireland and so much else.

    ^ if you watch For All Mankind, Kennedy does become the president, and the IRA are successful in their attempt to assassinate Thatcher in Brighton, and Clinton loses his election to a woman. No update on the peace process as of mid S3, I'm afraid.

    Anyone seen The James May series - our Man in Italy yet?



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,456 ✭✭✭✭ gandalf

    Me and missus watched and we enjoyed it. We did enjoy the Japan one as well.

  • Registered Users Posts: 350 ✭✭ brookers

    I watched Absentia and really enjoyed it, I find I get really into the characters and almost feel a bit lost when the series is over, Emily Byrne, Stana Katic is so pretty and lovely smile and I really liked her colleague, cal Isaac. Same thing happened me with Homeland, was devastated when is was over as I really loved the character of Peter Quinn. Thought there was something very kind about him. Watching Terminal List now. very good. Funny how you can become so attached to people who are not real.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,749 ✭✭✭ youcancallmeal

    Watched House of Gucci, great cast and a fascinating story loosely based on the truth

  • Registered Users Posts: 227 ✭✭ nomoedoe

    Haven’t seen his new one yet but the Japan one was very enjoyable, James May is a very likeable person and funny i could watch him in anything.

  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 23,504 Mod ✭✭✭✭ TICKLE_ME_ELMO

    Extremely late to this but I watched Palm Springs tonight and really enjoyed it. It's really funny, and sweet, and is only 91 minutes long!

  • Registered Users Posts: 779 ✭✭✭ Caquas

    Everything Must Go with Will Ferrell is a dose of black humour.

    Loosely based on a Raymond Carver short story, a man’s life falls apart and he is reduced to sleeping on his front lawn surrounded by his stuff. Not fully realised and Hollywood always pulls its punches but an engaging story with some effective moments.
