Lots of great music cues and snippets, I even spotted the Seeds in the first episode. I am annoying my wife by shouting out the 80's film references though.
    Exit by TD in the fight scene was a great fit!

      • In the last fortnight i've seen:
        Room: Woman and boy confined in a room by a rapist.
        10 Cloverfield Lane: Woman and man confined in a bunker by a survivalist
        Green Room: Punk band confined in a room by Nazi skins
        The Shallows - Thin-faced beach babe confined on a rock by a vengeful shark.

        The beach in The Shallows is amazing. The water is calm and gentle until she wants to surf, when it suddenly chucks up amazing barrels that break both left and right. It is home to one crab, one seagull, one shark, a school of dolphins, one mystifyingly-located marker buoy and no fish at all.

            • I watched 'Penda's Fen' on DVD yesterday. A bit intense to say the least. One of those films (well, a play, if we're being pedantic) that you'd be more comfortable writing an essay on, than actually absorbing and enjoying. I think everyone watching it would see something different. I watched the supplementary documentary / interviews before the main feature, just to give me a way in. In hindsight, not sure I should have done that as it slightly skewed my perspective. I thought it was both of it's time, yet completely relevant. Recommended.

              And scored by Paddy Kingsland.

              With that and BBC2's excellent 'Versus..' film on Ken Loach (plus I watched 'Bad Lieutenant' (Abel Ferrara and Zoe Lund's original) again), a good cinematic weekend was had.

                  I watched it on youtube about two years ago and I'm looking forward to seeing it again now it has a proper release.

                      • Almost finished with watching the first six episodes of The Get Down on Netflix. To anyone whos unfamiliar, it portrays a group of teens growing up in NYC during the late 70ies, touching on the political/social turmoil of the city as well as the music scene, with the high times of Disco as well as the beginnings of the Hip-Hop culture.

                        I saw on DWG that the show got a lot of bad feedback, a lot I must agree with (historical inaccuracy being one of the main points as well as Nas being one of the executive producers who just couldnt resist throwing in some live-footage of himself during a few episodes)..

                        In any case the Hollywood-esqueness always seeps through (even though the cast is flakey in parts, with Keving Corrigan as the cocaine-burnt-out A&R being one of the better choices), which kind of hinders the show being more "real" as The Wire was back in its hey-days.

                        Still though, it kept me watching even with its many flaws since I didnt really expect it to be a spot-on documentary of those times.. So its one of those 7/10-shows in my book.

                        Music-wise its full of classic breaks with the show also portraying the birth of the Hip-Hop "beat" and MCing with some nice scenes giving credit to the pioneering work of Flash, Herc, Bambaata and the likes.

                              • 'The Epic Of Everest' on BBC4 last night. Wonderful, evocative film of some British people attempting to go up Everest in what were essentially the same clothes they would wear at home but more of them. Simon Fisher Turner's new score didn't jar in the least. The early footage of the terrain around Everest is especially atmospheric.
