    I enjoyed Metal Evolution for its obsessive nerdiness. Is this cut from the same cloth?

      Put this on earlier today but didn't get past the intro. Might be me, Would be interested to hear others thoughts on it.

          Got sent a link to HHE. Seems like the same well-known stories about Flash, Run DMC, Wu Tang etc., but we love to hear the stories again and again.

          AR is interesting and different, if a little sad and not a lot of music.

            Started watching this last Saturday. Sadly not impressed but would cater for those unfamiliar with the story.

              Really enjoying this series, better than the 2nd I think. The songs have taken a bit more of a back seat though which is a shame, although the 'dad' one and the boy-band one were great

              • Watched the 80s slasher Just Before Dawn and was'n't exactly overwhelmed. They even missed the opportunity for a few jumpscares and creepy atmosphere by avoiding music and showing the killer approaching from far away, and there was very little gore.

                  I had a DVD of that a few years back and kinda enjoyed it for low budget chuckles. I think it has some cred as a very early example of the codified slasher. But it I'd certainly agree its a bit slow and not a great deal happens.

                  I recently watched "The Town That Dreaded Sundown" which is a kind proto-slasher from the mid 70s and based on real events. Bit of a mixed bag, some comedy elements that jar a bit. Especially the murder by playing a trombone with a knife taped to the end. That's just weird.

                      I've been wanting to see that, too. And In Broad Dayligt w Brian Dennehy as a smalltime sherif that bullies the entire town, sounds good.

                      • Watched 'Arrival' t'other week bit like 'Interstellar' in that I'm going to have to wait for my Physics graduate stepson to explain the ending. Currently watching the new series of 'Fortitude' which is really good but hard to explain without giving spoilers. It's quite like Fargo in a way but more serious and creepy, reminds me I haven't watched Season 2 of that yet.

                        • I watched the first episode of 'Legion' which was quite trippy. It's based on a comic but set in the XMEN universe so Marvel don't own the rights. I believe in the comic the main character is Proffesor's X's illegitimate son (Patrick Stewart and James McEvoy rocking bald heads in the movie.) I don't know if it will follow that origin but basically the lead character has multiple personalities is the best way to put it each with different Psychic powers. Episode 1 is a real homage to Pink Floyd, his girlfriend is called 'Syd Barrett's and from interviews the director hired the synth used on DSOT for a couple of scenes. I don't know how it will progress but as a standalone piece it was really weird. It's done by one of the guys who worked on the 'Fargo' TV series. I really should know the name of the synth used on DSOT but it's early and its name eludes me. I remember the director saying in this particular interview I read he held back as he didn't want the Floyd thing to be too blatant. It kind of was but yeah interesting viewed as a single piece.

                              Yep Bongo bang on from the 'In the Run' track. I had the bloody thing pictured in my head thinking suitcase, radars. I was even remembering a video I watched of 'Geoff Barlow's showing off his collection which is mouthwatering. It's the one synth I covet above all else unless someone has some huge modular like 'TONTO' cluttering up their garage.

                                I'm guessing you've heard Brian from FSOL run riot on one on the SYNTHI A Lp mate ?
                                One of the best releases from last year for me at least
