Ladhood

Quite enjoyed this one.


Summary: A coming-of-age comedy from the BAFTA nominated comedian, Liam Williams exploring the roots of modern-day masculinity, by delving into the memories of his own misspent adolescence.

Sticks and Stones, the 3 episode TV drama has viewers voting it as the most stressful TV show ever, and I must admit, I wanted to give the black actor a good shaking as well as punching all three protagonists in the head. Had a satisfying ending, which I did see coming.

6 Underground, this is a real action movie ,non stop from start to finish,

car chases,shootings,bombs, one of the best action movies in awhile.

regards worgeordie

 

I thought the car chase at the start of this was awesome... God knows how much they spent doing it but to have a chase like that around the narrow streets of Florence (was hiding behind my hands when it ended up in the Uffizi) can't have been cheap...

 

Really enjoyed this one... will watch it again...

@IvorBiggun2 what's sad about my post/view on this movie?

 

Have you even been to Florence? One of my favourite cities on the planet, spent a couple of months working there & it's hard enough to walk around the streets there never mind stage a car chase like that.

 

Stand by my statement it's up there with The French Connection & Bullitt in terms of enjoyable car chasing scenes & that's without mentioning the Parkour of the guy coming down Florence Cathedral...

 

Nah, stand by my post... thoroughly enjoyed this one & will watch again 

 

Edit: in fact I’m going to watch it again right now...

The difference is that both Bullitt and French connection were done without CGI, I would hazard a guess that most of the stunts/effects in 6 Underground were 50% CGI.

Obviously they would have to be, it's not humanly possible to do a car chase scene like that... but I still found it thoroughly enjoyable & like Ryan Reynolds Dead Pan (Dead Pool) character... 

 

Sue me... I enjoyed the movie & was enjoying it the 2nd time before my TV decided it needed to do a software update & reboot (We didn't have that when I watched Steve McQ or Gene Hack either!!!)... 

 

Change is (not always) good 🙂

I enjoyed it as well. It's an action flick and it delivers that in spades.

You not like Tom & Jerry? Roadrunner???

 

It was fun, entertaining & made you gasp at times, who cares whether it was real or not....  

 

Edit... Let's just agree to disagree, from now on I'll only comment on Real Life Docu/Dramas.... Speaking of which am I the only one waiting for the final episode of Temptation Island 2 (Now they should make a cartoon of that 😛 )

Thought Sandler was perfect as the frenetic compulsive gambler, trying to stay one step ahead of the loan sharks. Problem is people only want to see him in comedy roles.

Enjoying this (Uncut Jems) & think Sandler is perfect in the role (sort of reminds me of Jim Carey when he did Number 23 & later a very dark thriller (just googled, Dark Crimes), once you got the "Loveable Idiot" (not meant as an offence, more the part they perfectly played) out of your head you realise they're very talented actors...

Travelers

This is a couple of years old, so if its already been covered.......Sorry.

 

Just got back from spending some time in Oz, only one friend had a VPN so was restricted to a lot of looking at Netflix.  One series stood out "Travelers" All set in the present day, but people from the far future (which wasn't doing so well) had found the ability to transfer their mind into someone who was just about to die. 

At this point I would usually switch off---not really into Sci-fi--but this  plays out more like a drama. Its all played in this time era. They are set into groups of 5, an historian with a photographic memory ---he is the one that sets them up in safe house etc..he goes and buys the Loto tickets..(never first prize of course) and bets on long odds horses, which also starts to get noticed. Unfortunately his mind got transferred into a drug addict just as that person O.D.  so he has other needs also. A doctor /physicist..etc. etc

They are given orders  through the dark Webb.......take out this guy, shut down this facility etc , it will alter history. The FBI is also interested in what is being sent on the Dark Webb....also there are other groups that have been sent back that have decided, we like it here and with our knowledge and technology, we can have a great lifestyle so lets forget about the orders.

Its Canadian production --which is nice seeing fresh faces, gets a 8.5 last time i looked (although that doesn't mean a lot)  and is on its 3rd season---2 & 3 are easy to find on Rar, 1 takes a little more looking. I have just started season 2 and it might peter out or get boring if they keep putting it out.....but found season 1 very watchable.

 

Note---If you watch the trailer stop after season 1 or it will show a trailer 2 then 3 which will be a spoiler
