I thought the only really bad thing about GhostyShell Standylone 2054 was the style of the animation; the script and direction were good but it just looked a bit bland. 

 

Oh, and

The bit when the Tachikoma decide to take over the management of a brothel was... something...

Fucking hell this Dynasty Warriors film is dull as fuck.

 

Half an hour in and I don't think I can do the other hour and a half. It's just a big old CGI mess (followed by horrible exposition). It is the most faithful video game adaptation I've ever seen.

Season 3 of The Kominsky Method is out now.

 

Alan Arkin is sorely missed and they’ve completely abandoned the plot-threads from the previous season as it hurtles to a typical Netflix cut-short ending. But the writing is still really good and there are plenty of laughs and poignant moments along the way.

I've been binging Castlevania (halfway through season 3) and enjoying it. Any other anime TV shows on Netflix worth watching?


B (I think it’s called this, it just looks like a squiggle): The Beginning
Tokyo Ghoul

Violet Evergarden

Ajin 

Your Lie in April

 

And if you fancy some films, Mobile Suit Gundam I, II and III from the 70’s are a real treat. And Your Name, probably one of my favourite films of all time.

Your Name is great. It's not Netflix but I think Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champ are on 4oD and they are well worth watching.

Add Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood to your anime list as well. It's one of my favourites along with Death Note (which sadly appears to no longer be on Netflix). There's also the original series and live action movie if you're curious.

Man alive! L,D&R is to decent anime as eating a packet of crisps is to getting your dinner at L’Enclume.

 

Have you watched Akira? That is one of the pinnacles of the genre, as is the original GiTS film, but SAC is probably a bit esoteric if you’ve not dipped your toe in the film first.

 

@multi, if you watch Akira you need subtitles, the dub is atrocious.

Thankfully it's the subtitled version they've uploaded 🥰

 

It looked amazing when I first saw it on my shitty 50hz 14 inch CRT via VHS (that big double VHS set they did with a making of documentary on the other cassette) now I get to watch it in my 42inch HDTV (not 4k though...)

Don't know about that Fear Street. I mean, Windows 3.1 on an Amiga 2000? I suppose I'll persevere with the rest of the movie and see what horrors await, apart from that.

I thought Fear Street was pretty bad.

Did none of those kid have parents? They seemed to live in some Twilight Zone town where there were no adults looking out for them - teachers, parents etc. I guess they blew their budget on the music, which was pretty rad. 

 

I thought they were going somewhere with the rich-town vs. poor-town idea but that just got dropped. Maybe it will play a bigger role in the next two.

Isn’t that a trope of 90’s teenage slasher movies in general though - considering it’s done like a homage to movies like scream and the 1978 one is basically Friday the 13th. Not sure what 1666 will be but I’d assume more hammer/gothic.

they also call it the internet... in 1994. I dont think I heard that expression until at least 97

Nah, Internet is an old term, used long before the "Web" existed. Not sure how you got to 1997 without hearing it. Even Internet Explorer was released in 1995.

Don't watch Zoo. It's awful. Watched episode 1 and it's seriously bad. The trailer is fairly interesting but it's rubbish.

 

 

Haha. I remember watching the first episode of Zoo when it was on Sky. It was so preposterous I was laughing throughout.

Watched the first episode of Katla last night, new Icelandic weird mystery show, with 'Dark' vibes.  Seemed pretty good so far.

 

It's certainly quite absorbing. Everyone in it is really fucking miserable :lol:

Oh yes, it’s terrible. I’ll be honest and say I didn’t hate the first episode or two as it sets up the story. I mean it’s bad but I enjoyed it. But it gets so so much worse as it tries to transition to monster of the week for the most part but they’re all terribly dull.

Word of warning though: it's relentlessly bleak. Not entirely sure how satisfying it either but it's quite well done overall.

The Naked Director is back for a second season. If you don't know about it, it's a comedy drama based on the life of a notorious Japanese pornographer from the 80s and it heavily channels The Wolf of Wall Street; it's pretty good but it can be a bit uncomfortable to watch given the subject matter.

Is it just me, or is a lot of new stuff in HDR just really really dark lately? That new Fear Street film and also Loki on Disney+ have been really straining my eyes even with the backlight at max on my TV, and that's in a fairly dark room. I don't remember this being an issue before.

I normally don't particularly like Robbie Collin's reviews, but his comments on the Kermode and Mayo show feel quite spot on for me. Trying its hardest to not "offend" by just being so aggressively bland. It's horror by the numbers that's not half as clever as the films it's trying to ape.
