    Yeah, that would make any decent 'Top Ten Movies With Poisoned Pets' list.

    I think the 1962 version works best.

    That's why Robert Mitchum was in the remake. Only in the original he was Max Cady and Gregory Peck had Nick Nolte's role.

    The remake was also Gregory Peck's last movie.

    Wellington Paranormal (TV)

    Spoof reality show (a.k.a. "mockumentary") about a bunch of Wellington cops who investigate paranormal stupidity and take it all woefully too seriously.

    I larfed.

    7/10

    Just finished the 1962 version. Really liked it and that it was black and while added to it. It was the better of the two versions to me, although I thought De Niro in the remake was creepier.

    Five Easy Pieces

    Not much happens really, but director Bob Rafelson coaxes possibly Jack Nicholson's best performance in a film that never flags, despite the lack of action.

    8/10.

    "Doubt" (2008) (IMDB 7.5). Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman. What fantastic acting, Hoffman was excellent, but Streep simply stole the show.

    Twat!I've never been a fan of seafood but cooking hell that movie puts the nails in the coffin for commercial sea fishing.The worst culprits are Thailand and Japan, the producer gets pure grief in those countries.Its number 10 on Netflix at the moment, it'll be number 1 within a week.

    Put here because it's more entertainment than documentary.

    Q - Into the Storm

    The history of these barking nutters and the exposure of the fact they've all been fucking had.

    Just watched 'Nobody'- good, brainless fun in a 'John Wick' sort of way- anything starring Bob Odenkirk is gonna be watchable, imho.

    ^^Watched this a couple of days ago.

    Well I watched an hour of the 90 minutes.

    Odenkirk did a good job, but the almost complete lack of storyline took its toll.

    The fight scene in the bus was a good set piece.

    5/10

    ^^ Wot he said.
    I didn't get past 2 episodes either.
    To be honest there is not much comedy around these days that I do enjoy.

    Don't know if it has already been recommended but 'The Death of Stalin' is more than well worth a watch.
    A comedy (Armando Iannucci) starring Steve Buscemi, Simon Russel Beale, Jeffrey Tambor, Jason Issacs, and Michael Palin amongst others)

    I agree - that was great.

    And it might as well have been done in Serbo-Croatian as far as MM is concerned.

    I have just finished watching "The Investigation', a 6 part Danish docudrama focusing on the murder, a few years ago, of Kim Wall, a journalist, which gripped Denamrk at the time and was known as the Submarine Case.
    It has a very Scandi-noir feel to it.
    I found it to be good TV and an excellent choice for some binge watching

    That was a bit of an aberrant review- the flick crushed it on IMDb (7.5) and Rotten Tomatoes (94% audience score)- opinions will always vary. As I noted, it was a fun watch, but no 'Citizen Kane'.

    Yeah watched it last night, enjoyed it, no harm in just switching off the brain and being entertained for a while.

    Nobody was ok for a bit of fun

    I started watching marksman and stopped about 30 minutes in

    I also tried Death of Stalin and only got 30 minutes into it - I don't find american slapstick that funny

    I watched the first episode of Debris , and nearly canned it about 30 minutes in , but because I had nothing else for amusement I finished it - it is a bit of a vehicle for the the actors with cliche driven film making style and wanking film lead background stories - not sure if I will stick with it yet , I will try the second episode
