    I liked this too, odd movie but yeh, can't argue with that cast. The dog stole it though...

    I didn't like Season 4. I loved episode 4 (Hang the DJ) but the rest were either bad or seen before. At this point it seems they've run out of ideas and are simply trying too hard. Just look at the last episode (Black Museum).
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    It's clearly an attempt to out-do White Christmas, but there's a line between dark social commentary and torture for the sake of torture, and Black Museum has crossed it imo. I don't think I'll be watching Season 5, if they even make it.

    Darkest hour: the acting is really good. It's a political movie going through the events of the beginning of the war that respect the mind-set of the time. Success at evacuation of Dunkirk being the ammunition that allowed Churchill to gain enough support to carry on the fight.

    Good movie but could have been a lot better if it wasn't for one awful sentimentalist scene being most anticlimactic moment:

    the metro scene was cringeworthy at best, when it could not get any worst after the black guy reciting Shakespeare, here comes the little boy. It almost spoils the entire build up to the final speech.

    Have any of you seen Kung fu Hustle or Shaolin Soccer? Thoughts? I highly recommend Kung fu Hustle and I know this is verging on blasphemy, but you should watch the English dub version rather than with the original Chinese voices. I've seen both versions, and the English dub is a great deal funnier.
    I wouldn't recommend you watch the trailers though, because the Kung Fu Hustle one spoilers all the great bits and the Shaolin Soccer one is just a terrible trailer.

    Kung Fu Hustle is superb.

    The Snowman

    Norway.
    Will live there some day.
    Expected some gore, got more suspense and snow.
    Lots and lots and lots and lots of snow.

    Had some nice moments. Fassbender is okay.
    Rebeca Fergusson is ing gorgeous.

    So far, all I got from this movie is this song
    It sticks into your mind.

    Forever.

    ^Ah, Snowman, the movie where you have half the trailer feature scenes you don't get to see

    Another issue is that the killer's identity becomes obvious from very early on.
    Like my Hagia Sophia?
    I modelled it in Blender.

    For you, maybe.
    I'm not that smart.

    Flukt (Escape)


    Norwegian Apocalypto.
    Good clean medieval fun. With swords. And axes.
    And a very decisive crossbow.

    In the end, family is all that matters.
    Also, Armistice was kick-ass in this one.

    Thor: Ragnarok

    This was funny at times, predictable at best
    'Asgard is not a place, it's the people.'

    Kinda why I don't quit my job

    stretch: the eventful night shift of a limo driver. Well paced, well acted and really entertaining action comedy. Deserve a watch.
