    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Spoiler-free review from The Verge. They like it. https://www.theverge.com/2018/5/15/17355964/solo-a-star-wars-story-review-ron-howard

    This Country - new BBC comedy

    Good to see This Country being recognised at the Baftas yesterday. I hadn’t realised quite how small-scale and family based the whole thing was. I’m really quite pleased for them and, according to this story, there will be a special and a third series. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-44105670

    Justice League

    This was just execrable, but one of the things I wasn’t prepared for was how incredibly distracting and weird the moustache CGI would be. Did Whedon re-shoot everything that had Henry Cavil in a scene? The only scene that I think didn’t have the CGI-lip was one right at the end. There must be a whole different movie on the cutting room floor. An utter mess of a film. Literally the only good bit was when Danny Elfman wove a snippet of John Williams’ Superman theme into his score. Edit: I felt compelled to find out... https://screenrant.com/justice-league-movie-reshoot-changes-explained-snyder-whedon/2/

    I agree. It’s rather uninspired and generic, that one. I’ve not been bowled over by any of the released tracks so far. I hope the rest of the album is better.
  5. I think he's hilarious. Just watched the episode with AJ, the half-closeted gay man and it was lovely, feel-good telly.

    This Country - new BBC comedy

    I’ve watched two episodes so far, and it’s as funny/excruciating/tragic as the first series.
  7. It’s bloody brilliant. It’s getting a lot of plaudits all over the place. Pretty much guaranteed another season, I would have thought.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Dat spic and span Falcon lounge, tho. https://geektyrant.com/news/cool-new-photos-from-solo-a-star-wars-story-and-additional-plot-details
  9. I’ve watched the first couple of episodes of this and I’m really enjoying it so far. Has anyone noticed, though, how bad the subtitles are? It’s like they’re written by a Spaniard with a decent, but not quite fluent, grasp of English. So, for example, in the first episode with the school kids on the bus, the boy texts the girl to asks if he can sit next to her and the subtitle reads: “Can I sit by your side?” instead of simply “Can I sit next to you?” It's not a huge deal, but it’s kind of jarring when you’re trying to keep up with the action and you’re used to quickly scanning subtitles and the characters are “speaking” English with a Spanish “accent”.

    Altered Carbon - Netflix Cyberpunk

    I spent the first episode of this with my other half whispering “This is awful” after about 15 minutes in. And, I have to agree with Harsin. The sfx are great, but the acting is dire and the script is awful and exposition heavy. I’ll probably watch the rest on the train in the morning rather than it being an evening TV watch.

    A Monster Calls

    I just watched this. I didn’t really know anything about it going in. My mum died after a long battle with cancer and so the idea of part of you wanting it to be over was particularly poignant. I thought it was beautifully acted and produced. I said to my other half at the end “I’m just going to the kitchen to get a cup of tea and a mince pie.” ”And a cry?” came the reply.
  12. Manhunt is decent, but Sam Worthington is so unengaging. I think the problem is he’s always concentrating so hard with his American accent, which still falters frequently, that he forgets to act.

    The Mummy Remake - Due 2017 - Cruise, Crowe

    I watched this and had a giggle at the compositing in of Big Ben just behind St Paul’s cathedral, perpetuating the idea in American tourists’ minds that all the London landmarks stand right next to each other.

    Blue Planet 2

    Amazing! I’m going to put it back on tonight and just say ‘Just wait and watch!’

    Blue Planet 2

    It really is stunning in 4K HDR. My viewing keeps getting interrupted by my partner who refuses to watch animals in distress, so in the first episode where the dolphins are being chased by the false killer whales I had to stop. I’ll have to watch on my own later!
