sometimes have trouble following what's going because many of the actors all look alike to me.

I once watched an Icelandic film (an old Viking saga). The four protagonists were two pairs of brothers and every one of each pair was blood brother to one of the other pair. They all had unpronouncable and immemorable Icelandic names (all starting with Hr-), called each other 'brother' for one or the other reason and all sported long hair and wild beards. About ten minutes before the end I had finally figured out who was who.

I admire your persistence! I'd have probably given up.

"Dawn of the Dead" (also known as "Zombi" if you're watching the European version put together by Dario Argento, which was originally released in Italy). Currently putting together a "best of both worlds" fan edit, using the Argento cut as a template, which retains the action and Gore from the European version whilst reinstating key plot points and elements unique to the American version edited by George Romero.

Star Trek: Into Darkness...

Hmm real hotch - potch this one, mish-mash of ideas and all over the place. Some great actors feature but they don't save the chaotic and messy script.

Been told the latest one is much better, we'll see.


This movie a bad knock off of Star Trek 2 so I was worried when JJ got the directors job for Star Wars. Sigh IMO I was right.

"Safe House", a TV movie from 1998 starring Sir Patrick Stewart as a retired government agent suffering from early-onset Alzheimer's disease who fears he may be the target of a potential hit. A well-acted film (particularly from Sir Patrick) and an intriguing thriller with some humour thrown in (it's fun to see and hear Sir Patrick curse like Joe Pesci while channelling Sean Connery at the same time).

Had a quick trip to Melbourne and back yesterday.

The flight wasn't long enough to see a whole film, but I got to watch the start of the "Kong of Skull Island" movie. It wasn't available on the return flight so I watched the start of "Passengers", about a man who is woken up from cryosleep 90 years too early due to a malfunction on the spaceship he is travelling in with 4,999 other (hibernating) colonists.

I hadn't heard of "Passengers" before but I'm going to try and catch the rest of this. The FX and set designs were lovely and I enjoyed the story, as much as I saw of it.

'Preacher', series 2.
So far have watched Ep 1 - hilarious and gruesome in equal measures, had me laughing out loud while cringing behind a sofa cushion. Not many series have that effect. The car chase to the song 'Come on Eileen' was pure joy!

GC, now that the characters are on the road you may want to give it another try?

"Executive Koala", a 2005 Japanese weird-psychological-thriller-mind-screw-comedy-drama... movie... about an anthropomorphic koala in a business suit. Process that.

Netflix's "Castlevania" R-rated animated series (based on the classic NES game - the show is based on the third game, "Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse", which features Trevor Belmont, Simon's ancestor, as the protagonist).

What a horrible night to have a curse... Smile

Not really a 'what I'm watching' but more a what I intend to watch.

Network have just announced they're releasing the last series of "Whodunnit" in October. This series (the sixth) includes the other episode with Paul Darrow. It's a top show anyway, and Jon Pertwee is the host.

They released S5 in 2015 after a couple of years delay, so it's great to see this one limp over the line.

I've had a few people tell me that. Makes me a lil madder actually, because I was told you could even skip season one! Then what was the point Oops I'm a grump I know.

May check it out soon though and let you know what I thought.

"Star Trek: The Next Generation" - favourite episodes include "Encounter at Farpoint" (Q's first appearance and the surprise cameo by Doctor Leonard "Bones" McCoy is a double plus), "The Measure of a Man", "The Best of Both Worlds", "Family", "Sarek", "Unification", "Skin of Evil", "The First Duty", "The Inner Light", "Tapestry", "Future Imperfect", "Preemptive Strike" (particularly the ending), any Q-based episode and the finale "All Good Things...". A childhood classic (I was a weird kid who preferred watching reruns of Classic Doctor Who and TNG over the latest hot show such as "Friends" ). Smile

Some of those are my favourite TNG eps, too, especially 'Measure of a Man', 'Best of Both Worlds' and 'The Inner Light'. 'Yesterday's Enterprise' is also up there in my top ten, as is 'Darmok'.

Sounds perfectly normal to me - as a kid and as an adult!

"RoboCop" (the original 1987 version, not the 2014 PG-ified reboot) to mark its 30th anniversary... I'll buy that for a dollar. Smile

Watched "The Magnificent Seven", both the 1960 version and the 2016 version. I can say this for the 1960 version, it had star power- Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, James Colburn, Robert Vaughn... but not a lot of back story or any story for that matter. The 2016 version had Denzel Washington in the Brynner role and a more coherent story about the players protecting the small town- and a great final confrontation scene.

Note: The 1960 version I am told is one of Paul Darrow's favorite films. Watch Yul Brynner in the part and see the inspiration for Avon. Even the 4th series placement of his side-arm- the same. All in black- yes. Slow even body language and a briefness of speech- yes. Amazing.
Zil: Oneness must resist the Host.

Only seen the 1960 version, can't beat perfection in my view.

Its simple and basic yes, but what a cast and music score..

When the men were men and err women were almost non existent... Hmm maybe I am shooting an argument I have on another thread in the foot! Grin
