    Soundtracks for Movies/TV Shows/Video Games

    Oh yes! Its also massively influential, I see that style now being used in pretty much every sci fi movie going these days. Unfortunately the movie never really lived up to the Trailer, which at the 1m 40s point is simply incredible: Which kind of reminds me of the Mad Max Fury road trailer, as it was a perfect mix of music and editing, but that wasn't ever quite as good in the movie (still like that movie though)
  2. Same here, Capaldi brought be back to the show in the hope that it signaled a return to more intelligent storytelling and less 'running around after stuff'. But I soon tuned out after realising that the writing hadn't really improved. I never understood the show's obsession with the Doctors assistant over the the doctor. First it was Billie Piper.. then ..er that boring one.. then 2 whole seasons which were basically the Amy Pond show, then basically the Clara show. I understand that the show's dynamic lends itself to focussing on the main human character, but I've always disliked it. I'm hoping this new doctor will bring in a new era of writing quality... but I'm doubting it tbh

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend S4 - We Want to Be Here [spoilers]

    I guess. My issue is probably that I find Rebecca so utterly unlikable in almost every regard. When she is being nice to people it is usually out of some motivation to get something out of them, rather than genuinely having any real affection for anyone. She does occasionally have some nice things to say about Paula, but also treats hers as the sidekick in the Rebecca bunch show and often has little to no regard for her well being. I mean, one of the reasons I believe that Rebecca is so messed up is because she's so internally motivated, she is obsessed by herself and is constantly examining her own emotions and reacting to them. My personal philosophy is that its impossible to be happy if you mostly focus on yourself, and only by caring about other people can you really achieve little bits of happiness. The people I've found to be the most unhappy and have the most issues were those who constantly thought about their own problems over others and obsessed about their own happiness. So in that way I think the show is totally accurate in its portrayal of her character. Plus I think she's a completely false human being. Even when being nice she's putting on a show, trying to impress or get people to like her. She has moments of being genuine, but usually its as a way of making up for those moments where she has messed up royally. I don't think the show expects you to like her, and thats why I enjoy it so much. She's a horrible human being most of the time. The show kind of hinges on your enjoyment of watching her , but you don't have to actually like her at the same time. So when the show pivots and tries to make out that everyone really loves her, in an 'Its a Wonderful Life' sort of way, then it falls down and feels false. I'm totally ok with those characters being concerned for her or wanting to help her out, thats kind of normal, but I felt like they laid it on a bit thick in that episode, and it didn't sit right with me. That was a great song. I quite liked the episode on the whole, despite it basically being about many of the side characters and giving them some screentime. I actually really enjoyed Rebeccas song about Paulas dad, it was creepy, but that was the point, she probably has a number of daddy issues, and I'm sure Paula's dad was wondering why this young girl was hanging out with him! I think this whole storyline was dragging on TBH. The breakup was well handled, but they really needed to move things forward rather than having the whole season about whether they have kids or not. I'm still not entirely convinced that WhiteJosh would ever be going out with Darryl in the first place so hopefully they do something more interesting with it.

    Soundtracks for Movies/TV Shows/Video Games

    I will put in that I love the Amelie soundtrack, I really like a lot of Yann Tiersen's stuff actually. Plus, the Fountain, a hugely divisive movie, but its an audio / visual delight, so much so that I think without the soundtrack I wouldn't be able to stand the movie, but with it, it becomes one of my favourites.
  5. yeah this is exactly how I felt. From about the 4th episode my jaw was on the floor mostly, there were some concepts and ideas in there which I absolute loved: The last 2 episodes were still great, but there were some things that sent niggly fears through my brain. I'm worried that the show might end up going into sci fi territory in a much blander, less interesting way than it started. I'm worried that it is introducing some characters who may be more black and white than I would hope, and I'm worried that it might be treading on some ground that other time travel stories have also worn out.. a bit like Terminator for example. But, this show has been phenomenal. If I was a kid in 1986 and I'd come back to visit myself and tell me that I'd be watching a German show this good in 30 years time then I'd never believe me!

    THE PUNISHER now a Netflix series

    I'd say that actually I enjoyed all of the side characters in this show far more than on the other shows. I thought Micro was maybe the best thing in the series tbh. That doesn't mean I didn't wish that they had concentrated more on Frank and less on everyone else. It felt like they were using Punisher as a base to make a bunch of general comments about gun laws and PTSD, which is fair enough, but it felt a little heavy handed at times.

    Star Wars Ep. VIII: The Last Thread [SPOILERS]

    Thats awesome.. and looks a bit like Star Wars Rebels to me!

    Hopefully there will be some actual punishing of bad guys in the next season.

    Marvel Netflix - Sweet Christmas!

    Hmm, I've only binged one of those shows, 13 reasons why, and it wasn't even very good! I guess I tried the OA and Travellers, but they barely hooked me. Yes the Marvel shows don't tend to have enough of a hook to make me want to binge them, I actually feel obliged to watch them rather than wanting to do so. That kind of sums them up really, that I will attempt to watch them due to them being Marvel and me loving the idea of them, but the reality is that often they are quite tedious and not very gripping.

    Star Wars Ep. VIII: The Last Thread [SPOILERS]

    A decidedly mixed review here. When reviewers say they need some time to digest the movie it means that they are diplomatically saying they didn't really like it.. but hope to like it next time.

    Trailer Thread IV

    Yeah the visual style of that looks great, I like the jerky animation which is reminiscent of stop frame animation, and the quirky colour choices and effects. Could be interesting, I think it would need to be interesting to separate it from stuff like Homecoming.

    Marvel Netflix - Sweet Christmas!

    My excitement for the Netflix Marvel shows has completely fallen off a cliff. After season 1 of DD I felt like these shows could be the greatest thing to have happened to tv since it went colour! I was so hyped for all the shows that were upcoming. But almost every single one of them have proven to be a bit of a disappointment on some level. Maybe its the Netflix format, or the way they write these shows, or their relationship with DIsney but I am losing interest rapidly. I just saw the new Jessica Jones trailer and I felt nothing. I have as much interest in watching it as I have in watching any of the other 3 million superhero shows out there right now. Maybe Disney taking it all back in house wouldn't be such a bad thing.

    Rank your 2017 TV shows throughout the year

    Ok my list would probably be.. and wow theres been a lot of shows this year:| 1) Leftovers - Managed to be excellent for 3 full seasons. Amazing send off. 2) The Americans S5 3) Legion 4) Crazy Ex Girlfriend 5) Preacher 6) WestWorld 7) The Crown 8) Rick and Morty 9) Narcos 10) American Gods That top ten are all good shows, I'd watch any of them right now if I could. And here is my bottom ten shows: 1) Game of Thrones - Just a total clusterfuck this year, epic in its awfulness. 2) Iron Fist 3) House of Cards S5 4) Mr Robot 5) Walking Dead 6) 13 Reasons why 7) Man in the High Castle 8) Inhumans 9) Girl Boss 10) Big Mouth

    Trailer Thread IV

    I was too bored to even finish the trailer! Thats how bad it was. Maybe they are just trying to out-do Jurassic Park 2: The Lost World. I really don't think the franchise has any legs storytelling wise anyway.
