    It seems to be monster month (released for Halloween?)

    Love & Monsters
    A Babysitters Guide to Monster Hunting
    The New Mutants (Marvel)


    All thin on plot and big on CGI.

    Will keep the saucepans quiet for a few hours.

    5-6/10

    "Industry", a joint HBO/BBC eight part series that has just started. Set in the banking world of London and looks set to be one of the better series of recent times.

    Undercover (Netflix).

    Passable cop series where a two cops pose as a couple to infiltrate an ecstasy dealer's circle.

    6.5/10

    Mortal (2020)

    Norwegian mythology sci fi thing that doesn't really go anywhere but takes ages to get there.

    The writer obviously raided the far superior Powder (1995) for some plot elements, but this is pretty average.

    4/10

    Greenland (2020)

    Gerard Butler seems to have cornered the market in global apocalypse movies.

    This one is like Deep Impact, only they probably should have called it Deeper Impact.

    It's a 6/10 OK.

    I've been quite enjoying 'Ted Lasso', a comedy series on Apple TV about an American football coach who's hired to coach a soccer team in the UK (I'm sure there are better details I could provide regarding the level of the team- I have no idea how that works- it doesn't matter, really). It stars Jason Sudeikis, who's been pretty popular the last few years in the comedy world.

    It can get a bit silly, but I like it- it's good-hearted at its core.

    8.7 on IMDb, and well worth a look.

    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    I'm probably late (as usual) but The Queens Gambit is the best thing I have seen in a long long time. Real quality stuff- you don't need to be a chess player at all, but consider that the icing on the cake. 50's & 60's nostalgia, part coming of age story, excellently acted & filmed. Only 6 episodes, you might consider the first episode a bit slow, but consider that the set-up- don't let it put you off, if you appreciate quality.

    9.5/ 10 (I never award more than that on principle)


    For more down to earth stuff, I'm looking forward to Mandalorian S02. Next up to watch.

    'Tehran' is very good IMO. If you liked 'Fauda' then you'll like this. I believe both to have been written by the same guy.

    105, can be problems growing up too fast, and it's running a scary parallel to The Prodigy (HHesse).

    Anyone else watched the Umbrella Academy?

    Starts out kind of quirky and weird. pulls it altogehter in the end before the end of the world.

    Series two appears to be more of the same.

    I love chess so I don't know if that is why I am enjoying it so much but the biggest Chess youtuber Agadmator has picked up on it and started analysing some of the games portrayed.
    There was a comment on Agadmator's channel that some of the moves did not look right in the plane scene in episode 3 @ 11.15

    So I went and scrutinised it frame by frame and there are indeed many errors.

    Beth is shown playing against an imaginary white opponent. White appears to make 4 illegal moves and black makes an illegal double move.

    The white G1 knight appears to have made an opening move to E3 just prior to the scene starting (illegal)

    Black then advances the F8 bishop to D6 (legal)

    White then moves the F1 bishop to D4 causing it to change from a light square to a dark square bishop (illegal).

    Black then captures the white bishop on D4 using the pawn on C3 (legal)

    White then captures the black pawn on D4 using the knight on E3 (illegal - although curiously if the knight had made a legal 1st move to F3 instead of E3 then this capture on D4 would have been legal).

    Black then retreats the knight from C6 to B8 (legal)

    Black then makes another move (illegal) without white moving (bishop from D6 to C5)

    White then captures the black bishop on C5 using the knight on D4 (illegal)

    ^^ There are a few things one can catch out in a chess sense. One I recall from just a first time casual viewing is She catches a chess Master in a simple king/rook fork. Yeh, right. That does not happen in real life.

    Nonetheless, I am going on Youtube to study some of the games, which were based on tournament matches. I think it has reignited more than a few peoples interest in the worlds greatest game! But even if you don't play chess, great stuff- and then you won't have to cringe at the errors, either.

    To be fair, every move of every grandmaster/tournament game are published online and everyhwere - pretty unforgivable for a show not to get that right. Literally just open it up to move 16 of which ever game, repeat move 17.

    Just hire a work experience kid as the Chess Coordinator on set
    Once again Ant demonstrates his idiocy. I have a lazy keyboard and occasionally miss a letter.

    Furthermore, it is Panama Hat, KW, AO and Ant who all spell words wrongly....words which I knew how to spell in grade 5. But it's not just misspelling....they are words which have completely different meanings.

    It may seem petty for me to point it out....one does wonder if they ever read books. And wonder at their general level of education...

    I went through a Hesse binge (among others) 40-50 years back, first and most memorable was Steppenwolf; the 1974 movie adaptation is ok if you haven't read the book, otherwise disappointing.

    QG is an excellent series, I go with >9.

    I've not watched the Queen's Gambit as of yet, but as Garry Kasparov and Bruce Pandolfini supposedly choreographed every chess move, i'm pretty sure it's all kosha.

    Fact #7 - Facts on The Queen’s Gambit will checkmate your boredom : theCHIVE

    I will try and find some decent sources to back this up...

    From IMDb- Unlike a majority of movies and television shows depicting chess boards, the chess boards are always set up correctly in this series and the chess games and positions are realistic. National Master Bruce Pandolfini and Grandmaster Garry Kasparov acted as consultants for this series.

    i'm not going to go into the weeds on this....but i'm going to guess that the shots which show only the board, are accurate...but the wider shots with actors...you know...acting...are the ones in which people are finding fault.

    let's keep in mind that they're actors....not grandmasters.
