Hit & Run
Main character in Fauda stars in this 9 episode thriller.
Started yesterday, finished it today. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Well worth a watch!
Watched Myth & Mogul, John Delorean over the last few days, wasnt a bad 3 part documentary and seems someone in the Irish government and IDA at the time actually did something right.
Sticking with drugs and drug deals nearly done with cocaine cowboys and enjoying it even if some of the real life characters interviewed are total scum.
Going to start it tonight. Fauda is such an underrated gem on Netflix
I watched Love and Monsters at the weekend. It was ok, easy watch, not award winning or anything. There was just one character that I was emotionally invested in - Boy, brilliant acting.
I also watched the special of Kingdom, Ashin of the North. Interesting (if bleak) to see the back story, and am waiting not so patiently for the official release date of season 3.
Maybe it's because I watch so much of their crap but Netflix really does have the worst written characters. Jupiter's Ascending and Fear Street 2 both have the same edgy female teenage rebel who just come across as absolute tools. The latter even being a "rebel" to the sound of The Runaways. Really? Cringe central.
Finished Itaewon Class. Really enjoyed it. Quite dramatic at times but I felt it all worked.
Army of the Dead wasn't too bad at all, going by reviews I read I should never of bothered with it but it was ok.

Oh, Grace and Frankie, very nice!!!
Will watch the new Spy Racers. Also plan on checking out that Brand New Cherry Flavour at some point.
I didn't know this existed until you posted about it - it's a really great show. Tufnell being the more in-your-face of the two compared to McCullum is a bit more reserved but very witty when he wants to be.
You are right though, really shows NZ's beauty and some of the backdrops for their golf games are stunning.
They mention in the last episode about Baz going to the UK, I'm assuming COVID may have delayed those plans but I'd happily watch another season of the two boys knocking about together.
Season 3 of fauda was bloody awesome. I'd give caliphate a go as well. That is still my favourite thing I watched on Netflix.
Beckett was like a weird version of The Fugitive. The Greek political story just seemed a bit of a random one for a fairly big budget film. JDW was good as always but his bent over run, jumping etc was channelling Harrison Ford's fugitive all day long for me.

Alicia Vikander. you say, ok I'm definitely in.
Danny dyer movie 5.8 on IMDB, I think Ill pass on that one thanks.
Watched The Firm (1993, Tom Cruise) over the weekend. It clocks in at 2.5 hours, which is about 3/4 of an hour too long. It's very 1990s and has a strong plot which I couldn't guess how it would end.
Beckett is like a love letter to the thrillers of the 1970s. It has the same feel as them throughout with the cinematography used. I enjoyed it even if some of it was just a bit too contrived. Beckett's run near the end did look like when I'm running to the toilet and I'm trying to avoid soiling my pants.
Was just going to say much the same thing, serious 1970s vibe off it. The trailer made it look like like more of an action film than it is. Nice to see a hero barely able to stand up after getting the crap beat out of them over the course of the film, not something you see much in thrillers/action films these days anymore 😂 Really enjoyed it.
Watched The Equaliser after and it was ok but about 45 minutes too long.
