    Breaking Bad

    Considering the Walking Dead movie announcement, a WD prequel crossover where policeman Rick arrests Jesse and dumps his entire stash into a local reservoir ?

    Halloween (2018). Surprisingly Decent.

    Just got back - aside from Halloween 78 and possibly H2 (1981), easily the best of the sequels, and the most menacing Shape since those two. I do have a couple of niggles with it but overall it was a welcome return, and the last twenty minutes especially were pretty tense. I’d quite like to see it again.

    The Walking Dead!

    They made the premiere available a day early on their streaming service, and had record subscriptions/downloads on that, so I guess a large chunk of their audience didn’t watch it on broadcast night. That said, it’s definitely down a fair bit on its peak.

    Best WWII Movie

    I always liked ‘In Which We Serve’. Great cast, Noel Coward’s sole movie directors credit.

    Good new horror films

    Interesting you should say that about Halloween. When I saw it in the 80s I found it terrifying, and Myers is the one ‘boogeyman’ that has stuck with me. However, I did wonder the other day how a young audience would react to it seeing it for the first time in 2018 bearing in mind the sort of horror films that have been released since it came out. My 15-year old hasn’t seen it, but I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if she thought the same when she finally does, especially as I always talk it up so much. The lack of gore/kills and the relatively slow build put it at odds with a modern 15-rated horror movie. I know that for the anniversary Halloween night showing at my local cinema it’s been re-classified as a 15.

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine

    I think she was off having a baby. I thought I’d miss her more than I actually did - they fleshed out Hitchcock and Scully a bit to compensate and those guys are good.
  8. This sounds familiar... https://www.gamespot.com/articles/star-wars-1313-could-return-but-not-necessarily-as/1100-6432971/

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    For me personally, it’s definitely diminished in some ways on repeat watches. The things that made it seem very fresh on first viewing - the brutal dismissal of every mystery box Abrahms left - have made parts of it a bit of a let down on recent viewings, because I know the twists now. There’s still stuff to like about it; the Luke/Rey/Kylo stuff is great, but the things that were a pleasant surprise in the cinema are no longer a surprise, and there’s not enough narrative weight or backstory to some of those twists to make repeat viewings compelling once you know them.

    Films that are good for the soul

    Some great choices in here; you lot have pretty much taken all the ones I would have said. These are films that inevitably come on at 11:30pm when I’m thinking about going to bed, and I think “I’ll just watch the first ten minutes” and then end up watching the whole thing.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    I think he did - he stole it off someone so presumed there was a reason.

    British War

    Not quite what you’re looking for, since it deals with British brutality towards its own soldiers in a military prison, but I always thought The Hill was excellent.
  13. Definitely tailed off as it went on. As @JPickfordsaid, the whole resolve felt really rushed. . Did anyone else find Gina McKee’s character really annoying in this ? They flip-flopped her so often it must have totally confused McKee, hence her playing every scene completely flat, but looking ever so slightly smug.

    Favourite acting performance of all time

    Robert Shaw in Jaws for me. On the small screen, Eva Green’s stuff in Penny Dreadful was extraordinary at times.

    Better Call Saul!

    Edit - ignore me, going mad.
