1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    ‘Click bait’ on Netflix is worth a watch & I am quite into ‘Second Chance Uni’ which is about college sport in the US; rather compelling.

    Just watched South Korean film Parasite for the second time -on Prime after it’s 2019 film release. This is a once in a decade film, richly deserving best picture, best director Oscars 2020. The only people getting near this quality in Hollywood are the Coen brothers.

    Netflix - Count Me In
    Count Me In is a love letter from drummers to drumming. In fact, “I love drumming,” are the first words we hear said in the film

    We have had a Daniel Day-Lewis binge and rewatched two classic long films

    There Will Be Blood


    Gangs of New York

    Wow, he owns the parts.

    The soundtrack to There Will Be Blood is most enjoyable. It is by Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead.

    DDL is probably one of the best ever. Sometimes you don’t even recognize him at first. Have you seen My Left Foot?

    Yes, many years ago.

    We had seen all these films as well, but like a familiar old book, they are worth experiencing again. :)

    mix up Cronenberg, Del Toro, Polanski, bit of Tarantino and some LA noir and with tongue firmly in cheek = 'Brand New Cherry Flavor (sic)' on Netflix...enjoyable trash with some great central performances

    Very disappointing bit of sycophancy.

    I enjoyed the first episode of The Squid Game last night. It's a Battle Royale style South-Korean series but it takes time to establish the character's motivations, so it's a little slow at first. Fantastic visual style once the "games" begin.

    Just finished ‘Clickbait’, excellent, a must watch in the end.

    I haven’t flicked through all 95 pages of this thread but if it hasn’t been recommended already then, if you like science fiction, you should be watching The Expanse on Amazon Prime.

    Speaking of sci-fi, Boss Level (on Amazon) is worth a go if you have 100 minutes to spare. It’s like a cross between Groundhog Day and Edge of Tomorrow. Great fun and wears its b-movie credentials very much on its sleeve. Interesting supporting cast including - Naomi Watts, Mel Gibson and Michelle Yeoh…
