What have you seen part II - the sequel *No SPOILERS please*

The bit of the forum where you can be the director, producer, and critic of anything that is movie related in a Discworldly sort of way.

Just back from seeing Rogue One - it's good, it's VERY good :D :D :D

Much better than The Force Awakens: good main characters (although the main baddie was majorly upstaged by both Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin in the baddie stakes), great battle scenes, amazing CGI, and a more complex and intelligent plot, with funny bits, that ties in perfectly (figuratively and literally thanks to a cameo from a certain Princess . . .) with the original Star Wars film. Can't wait to see it again in 3D :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Although getting in to see the movie was a bit tricky as there was a disturbance in the Force . . .

Well, the yanks used to pay the IRA to do it, now that's all quietened down, they pay Hollywood instead

Love the pictures! :D So glad the movie was good.

And, I'm stumped. Do they blow London up a lot? It always seems to be New York to me. :lol:

Watched the Shamer's Daughter on Amazon Prime. Danish film with subtitles.
A Shamer is someone who can look into anther's eyes and see their shame and determine their guilt.
Very enjoyable: Willow meets Return of the Jedi and Dragon Heart. The ending seems to indicate a sequel.

There are plans for a sequel, due to premier in 2018. The book which the film is based on is the first in a series of four.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Very underwhelmed. I get the impression they bought some software which reconstructs buildings and then needed a plot to use it. But the bit I really can't swallow is this:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Wizards have the death penalty. And they use it often enough that there's a room permanently set up for it and a specially trained and uniformed staff on duty full time able to just waltz in and deliver it.

But at the end when they capture the Biggest Baddy - "We're going to lock you up for a long time" is their big threat!
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

We saw this on the Monday after it came out, thought it was really good. The ending was great, Andrea thought it was sad, but it makes sense.

had to be that way, though, to explain why we never hear of any of them again

We recently watched Finding Dory. Cute, it made us giggle. Not nearly as good as Finding Nemo though.

That just looked the same, just rehashed.

Inferno, equally as good/bad as the other two

Suicide squad, not as good as it was hyped.

Dr Strange, very!!!

Oook!

Saw the new Midsomer Murders episode - scared the cat right out of my lap* when I saw who "Jack Morris" was.

Only discovered Season 18 two weeks ago, and now there's also Season 19. Yay!

* His Craziness is always more affectionate in winter-time, willing to grace us with his presence as long as we spread a blanket or pillow over our legs (one of the reasons Spikey first brought him home was his gentleness - he doesn't want to accidentally** hurt us, flexing his claws)

** On purpose only happens if he feels threatened, and even then he's more likely just to run away
What ape? Oook! :book:
