    Liked it. Arty thriller/horror á la Shaymalan's SIGNS and VILLAGE but without the twist. Whats happened to him btw?
    He's doing a sequel to Split/Unbreakable, neither of which I liked much.
    I like the ones everyone thinks are shit best- After Earth, Lady in the Water, The Happening. They're all brilliant if you're stoned.

    'Legion' is the best thing on TV in years, where else would you get a homage to 'A Clockwork Orange' among other things and a mouse singing 'Slave to Love' in one episode. Not to mention the 'Synthi A' driven soundtrack. :



    or a psychic dance off to start season 2. :

    Just watched online the wonderful Greek crime thriller Έτερος εγώ (Eteros Ego = The other me). The director decided to withdraw the movie from the cinemas last year due to a number of killings that took place during the same time. Now he has posted the full movie online - you may check it on youtube (english and french subs are available) - the link is:

    In a nutshell the movie is about a professor of criminology who tries to solve a number of murders whose only link is quotes from Pythagoras. Highly recommended.

    And in case anyone's interested, here's an article that explains why the movie was withdrawn: http://www.ekathimerini.com/217038/a...-cabbie-killer
    Finally got around to watching this at the weekend. Excellent stuff, like an exotic episode of 'Lewis'. A very arresting opening scene.

    I saw Mary Magdalen last week because it was the only film in English that I could take my mum and my aunt to.
    Joaquin is Jesus. He's terrible, all wild-eyed and mystical. Mary Magdalen gets knocked out on while he throws the moneylenders out of the temple so you miss most of the Easter story, but fortunately she comes round in time to see Joaquin get crucified.
    My mum: "I wanted to see the donkey"
    My aunt: "Where were the loaves and fishes?"
    Also, the film is careful to bury the slander that Mary M was a prostitute. As if that matters -I thought prostitutes were exactly the sort of people Jesus was supposed to mix with.

    Had to order something on Amazon and they were offering their free Prime trial which is funny as I used it over Christmas and they don't tend to offer it again for another year but I have recently bought a firestick linked to my account so maybe it's that. Might as well make the most of it

    So I was browsing around for some comedy and picked 'Loudermilk' at random which is a comedy set around an addiction recovery group by one of the Farrelly brothers. It draws you in over a couple of episodes and then gets really funny. Tragedy mixed with slapstick, absurd situations and a touch of the surreal with some expected toilet humour.It has a great cast though who really gel especially two in particular who end up in a bizarre storyline throughout half of the series that just gets weirder and weirder. I had quite a severe laughing fit on about episode 6 or 7 so that's a good sign for me.

    So it's not subtle but it's funny and set around a guy who used to be a 90's music journalist, has a record shop/cafe as a main location and some turntable porn!

    'HER' was OK he's great in it but it drags on a bit and I didn't really buy into it to be honest, worth a watch though it's a yarn.

    New series of Plebs started last night on ITV 2. On the face of it it shouldn't be my kind of thing but I really like it. Now that Stylax has been in a crappy prime-time BBC1 drama he's too good for Plebs so a new character has been introduced. Very surprised to see Robert Lindsay in it too. Also one of the best soundtracks on telly, nice to hear Dulcemania last night.

    Tis' witchcraft mate, you have this little black stick you plug into your TV and it magically transmits TV shows and Films on to your screen and money mysteriously disappears from your bank account once a month. I've even heard tell of people seeing it through their computers and the kidz getting it through their video game machines and super phones!

    What is this Netflix of which you speak?

    there's a good 45 mins Chicago documentary in particular, also a nice mid 60s Big Bill Broonzy performance.

    Looks like some of it is up on youtube:

    Not sure what else was on the "Blues Night" programme originally or how long it was though - the name of artists at the end goes on for ages
    I'm sure a lot of us have seen this John Lee Hooker piece from "the beat room" but any excuse to post it up:
