Yup, and the second episode was Old Jake talking about his dad. Friggin' good stuff. Reminded me of "The Inner Light"

Iron Fist. Don't see what all the fuss was about. I am liking it but everyone said it was the worst thing ever.

Into a mini-binge watch. Seriously? How is this show "so terrible"? It's pretty good so far!

yeah I am about 5 or 6 episodes in myself, and I am liking it. Haven't read any online reviews to see what everyone's hate comes from. I do know some people have complained the main character isn't asian, but that seems to be pretty important to the character, so I don't know why they'd change his race.

Yeah, I didn't know the character so I looked it up on Wkipedia. Given all the fuss I was imagining he was Asian and Marvel TV has made him white...... but no, seems to have always been a white character??

Also hear a criticism of the fights - but I thought it was also pretty clear his fighting style is meant to be like that. It's a plot point. Are people actually watching or is it bandwagon jumping??

It's possible people just got spoiled on the other three shows and are now hypercritical. Maybe they feel like Iron Fist is a shank steak following on the heels of New York Strips. Shank steaks can be pretty fucking tasty, but when you're expecting a New York Strip, a shank steak can be disappointing.

(Yes, yes. They feel like they got shanked. Very clever.)

The Shallows - again!

Blake Lively is unbelievably surprisingly good and the damn shark FX are incredible.

It was a really fun movie, though the trailers had me hoping for a twist that did not come.

Not that it needed it.

Netflix doc "Five Came Back," about Hollywood directors who contributed to efforts in World War II. Superlative--if you're a film buff or a history buff, check it out.

Some daft Doris on TV going on about ghost hunting and showing pics of "Orbs" claiming they are ghosts.

Congrats love, you have managed to photograph dust!

The Sum Of All Fears.

I remember this was unloved on release. Well....damn! Amazingly tight movie. And it's a terrifying portrayal of mistaken escalation on both sides bring us near disaster. Worth a revisit.

Never saw the movie, but I remember reading the book and finding it a pretty enthralling read.

They changed the bad guys a fair bit (now-Nazis rather than Middle Eastern) but the basic premise is the same. I had kind of forgotten it. Just watched it because I am on vacation and my holiday apartment has a DVD player in it and this was on the pile.

Next one in the series of past movies I am watching and enjoying because they were in my holiday home....

Spielberg's "War Of The Worlds"

Another one I kind of forgot after release but am really enjoying now after a few years have passed.
