    Fear City: New York vs The Mafia

    Five Mafia families ruled New York with a bloody fist in the 1970s and '80s, until a group of federal agents tried the unthinkable: taking them down.

    3 parter mostly covering the mafia's squeeze on the concrete and construction industry in early '80s Manhattan from the same people who brought us Don't F*ck With Cats.

    Not bad, I'll give it a generous 7.5/10 for some nice murder scene clips and photos. And one of them sounded like Joe Pesci on the wire taps.

    Lang may yer lum reek...

    Thought S01 was great.

    Gave up S02 by E02. Different producer iirc.


    Will give S03 a go after I've gone through around 100Gb of other stuff.

    'Snowfall'


    User Reviews



    Snowfall belongs aside The Wire, Peaky Blinders and The Shield for all-time best crime series16 October 2018 | by asphyxion_See all my reviews
    Gritty, realistic, and excellently paced.

    Season 1 was the introduction/world building season. Season 2 is the ramp up. Season 3 is going to be explosive.

    Every episode will suck you in. There's an intersect between The CIA, The Cartel, Franklin Saint's crew, and the way it delineates Iran-Contra and how it wiped out the Black Panthers and infected minority-majority communities with drugs that have perpetuated generational poverty and criminality.

    It's a no holds barred white knuckle thrill ride. If you need a well written crime saga, look no further.

    Halfway through I May Destroy You. Very good so far. Tasty and videogenic lead. Challenging themes.

    Gave up halfway through The Great. If it were really great then it would be forgivable that it plays fast and loose with complete fabrication of the historical narrative of the life of Catherine The Great. But it is not that great so it feels kind of pointless watching it since you are not even learning anything factual besides not really being entertained that much.

    Currently halfway through Billions S05 (since the 2nd half of the season is on hold due to the virus). It has deteriorated into a prancing tart of a show. Every scene feels like it is being played like a campy stage pantomime.

    Also:

    There is so much wrong with this series. Every single character is unbelievable and dislikable. I need a protagonist to root for but there is not one redeeming character, except maybe for the mother. I had great hopes for,this series. The look is good, the seventies gold chains, hairdos and street scenes are real. But after watching shows on HBO & Netflix, this seems like a Mexican soap opera. The characters do things that make no sense. They are truly one dimensional, no souls. Ugh.

    The Blue Max (1966)

    A classic sixties war movie, I still remember being in shock as a youngster at the treachery of the ending, although by today's standards it's pretty tame.

    Still, worth a go for a bit of nostalgia.

    Download The Blue Max (1966) YIFY Torrent for 1080p bluray movie - yify-torrent

    ^ Was a nice movie for a rainy Sunday afternoon. Thanks. I don't particularly like Peppard or Ursala Undress, but the flying scenes are great!

    The Secret Garden.
    Revamp (another one) of this classic old children's yarn. Starring Colin Firth and Julia Walters, I was expecting something a little more interesting, tbh. After a short family consensus, we turned it off after about 40 minutes in..

    If you liked the first one you'll like the second one.

    I wasn't much overexcited over the first one.

    The second one has a lot more "2012" style CGI.

    They are both adequate to pass the time, a sort of 5.5/10.
