RE: [VIDEO] Homeland

Well it took six episodes but I'm finally on board with this season.

RE: [VIDEO] American Crime Story: The Assasinaton of Gianni Versace

Episode 6 was a slog indeed.

Penelope Cruz should feature a lot more in episode 7, though, and I'm looking forward to the manhunt in the final episodes.

RE: [VIDEO] Homeland

I dunno, it's like the writers just stick the previous year's current affairs into a plot-o-matic and see what comes out. I guess at least they're going back more than just one year this time with the whole Ruby Ridge-esque pantomime.

Just waiting for Russia to be behind it all, now...

RE: [VIDEO] American Crime Story: The Assasinaton of Gianni Versace

Yup, it's starting to test my patience now. The Versace's weren't even in episodes 3 and 4 at all, and only had a scene or two in episode 5. It looks like episode 6 will delve even further back into Andrew Cunanan's past, as well. On the plus side, it will feature more of Analeigh Ashford, whose presence I've missed since the end of Master of Sex.

I'm really hoping the last three episodes focus more on the investigation into the murder and the manhunt for Cunanan. I went into this knowing nothing about what happened and decided not to look anything up so as not to spoil the show.

That was until episode 4, at which point I scoured wikipedia and read up on all the information that the show wasn't giving me. At the very least, the finale should be exciting.

RE: [VIDEO] Stargate: Origins

mbilko says...
"New prequel, strange, the 1st episode started in 3 10 minute bursts? very strange"

It will be 10 episodes, each 10 minutes long. Basically a 100 minute movie presented in 10 parts.

The trailer makes it look laughably cheap, like somebody's student project.

RE: [VIDEO] Cloverfield

Don't get your hopes up, it's a clunky, cliche-ridden mess. It doesn't surprise me in the least that this was plagued by production problems before being brought under the Cloverfield banner.

All the interesting stuff was already done much better in Fringe.

RE: [VIDEO] Solo: A Star Wars Story

He doesn't look or sound much like Solo at all.

The plot look super-generic too.

I have a bad feeling about this.

[VIDEO] RE:Westworld (HBO)

Finally a date! April 22nd.

* some footage was shot just for the trailer. I'm guessing the bulls.

RE: [VIDEO] Altered Carbon (Netflix)

Watched a couple of episodes. It's... okay, I guess. Good enough to keep watching.

The consensus seems to be that they've butchered the books, though.

RE: [VIDEO] American Crime Story

First episode of Versace is pretty good. Penelope Cruz is the standout for me.

[VIDEO] RE:The Terror (AMC | 2018)

A much better trailer:

RE: New movies for 2018

Will be avoiding anything superhero-related like the plague, as usual.

Vaguely interested in Jurassic Park because dinosaurs (although the trailer inspired little confidence).

I'm most looking forward to Solo. Not so much the film itself, but the prospect of a John Powell score to a Star Wars film. Very exciting indeed!

I'm also cautiously optimistic about Mary Poppins, purely because Emily Blunt is so perfect for the role.

RE: [VIDEO] What happened to Monday?

It's been available to watch on Netflix since August.

They bought the UK distribution rights so I doubt there will be a cinema release in the UK.

[VIDEO] RE: Alternative Christmas Movies!

I've always seen South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut as a Christmassy movie, even though it''s not set at Christmas, nor does it have any reference to the holidays. And it was released in the summer.

I think it's partly down to the snowy scenery, but mostly it's Marc Shaiman's songs and score. For example:

(Look at those trees! Those are Christmas trees!)

[VIDEO] RE:The Trump Presidency

Not Trump, but he is mentioned so imma put this here:

[VIDEO] RE:Homeland

Events pick up after the sixth season finale, Carrie (Claire Daines) is on the outside, investigating White House corruption, while Saul (Mandy Patikin) makes the surprise jump from federal prison to Oval Office adviser. The right-wing conspiracy theorist, Homeland's spin on Alex Jones played by Brett O'Keefe, also appears to be involved in some kind of militia.

I say it every year, but I dunno if I can do this again.

[VIDEO] RE: Question on 'black sea' on film4 last night

Jude Law couldn't escape as there was nobody left on the submarine to fire him out of the torpedo bay. So he filled the last suit with some of the gold and sent it up to the surface with the picture of his family.

You can rewatch it here if you want:

RE: And the most boring film is...

12. 2001 A Space Odyssey (1968) – 18%

[VIDEO] RE:Altered Carbon (Netflix)

Available February 2nd.

Also, here is another trailer, this time with actual footage from the show:

[VIDEO] Altered Carbon (Netflix)

Coming in 2018, new sci-fi series based on the book by Richard Morgan

ALTERED CARBON is set in a future where consciousness is digitized and stored in cortical stacks implanted in the spine, allowing humans to survive physical death by having their memories and consciousness "re-sleeved" into new bodies.

The pilot is directed by Miguel Sapochnik, who is best known for helming the Hardhome and Battle of the Bastards episodes of Game of Thrones.

Teaser trailer:

Spot the spelling mistake ;)

RE: .mkv file with no detectable video

You could try opening it with MediaInfo to display the technical details about the video stream.
This will help to analyse the problem.

RE: Flight Unlimited 2K16 free on Win 10 for the next 5 days

It'll take a lot more than that to convince me to downgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

RE: Net Neutrality

I never thought I'd say this, but I miss Tom Wheeler.

Ajit Pai is a disaster. Hopefully Netflix can do some extreme lobbying in the next fortnight.

RE: The Walking Dead: Season 8

Mix Man says...
"Am I right in thinking this is the last series?"

Nope, there is plenty more to come and even with the huge drop in ratings, it still has one of the biggest audiences of any TV show. AMC will milk this for as long as they can.

Btw, there is a rumour that (mid-season finale/premiere spoilers ahead):

Chandler Riggs quit the show so he could move to Los Angeles and become a DJ / attend college.

Carl's gonna die at mid-season (either episode 8 or 9).

At least so says the set reports.

RE: ANOTHER mass shooting in America

We can only hope that tomorrow's mass shootings are less deadly :(

RE: [VIDEO] The Orville

The first season will be 13 episodes and will end in December.

Usually a network will order 13 episodes for a new show and then if it is successful, they will order a further 9 episodes (known as a "back 9" deal).

However, The Orville was originally planned as a 13 episode mini-series, so rather than trying to extend the first season, they went ahead and renewed it for a second (likely to begin next September). They renewed it two days ago so that's probably why you've read about it.

RE: Alien visitor to our solar system

Rob Shepherd says...
"a chunk of rock and ice seemingly fired our way from another solar system."

Would you like to know more?
