Great stuff. Coupla new ones were pretty good. Burn alone was worth the drive up.
It's an alright track but having heard it once I wouldn't feel the need to listen to it again.

Finished Foundation and it picked up a nice bit of speed in the last few eps.

Then sci-fi of a different variety, watched the first episode of Halo. Kickass first ep anyway. Unlikely to have the depth of The Expanse or Foundation but what harm.
Some really tasty playing but jaysus it's a dull album. New level of cringe lyrics too. A pity, I really enjoyed Dystopia.

Quote from: Ollkiller on November 24, 2022, 12:04:59 PMYa first episode of Lovecraft Country was brilliant. The rest was poor imo.

Thought much the same myself.

Watched a few bits lately.  Dahmer was very good, mainly due to yer man who really inhabits the role.

The Patient with Steve Carrell and Domhnall Gleeson. Cool premise, and while it's slow enough it's compelling throughout. 

Invincible, an animated one which is based on a Kirkman comic. In an era where these are all done in live action, this was an enjoyable change. I enjoyed it more than expected.

About halfway through Foundation. It's good but it really is a book that is nigh on impossible to film.

Cool. Looking forward to seeing them in a couple of weeks.

Probably a stupid question but with Ticketmasters dynamic pricing, if a gig isn't selling well would that not mean that ticket prices should be cheaper than at the time of announcement? If there's loads of unsold tickets a day or two before the gig could you feasibly get one on the cheap. Or do they only use dynamic pricing when it involves the price going up? Cunts of the highest order anyway but..

Ya, you're on the ball with that infatuation thing. And that it's gone full blown sexual in the show kinda cheapens it. It was a love/abuse scenario that I kinda recollect which was really done well. I presume they'll kinda lean into the toxic, for want of a contemporary term, side of it as it progresses.

Watched the first ep and can only comment from the movie viewer perspective so ye that have read it will be more invested.

So. He's a wealthy black property owner, which, aside from the book, already seems an odd angle to run with. Racism still heavily exists and they haven't really explained how he and his family seem to be largely unaffected.

Your man and Lestat have an overtly gay thing going on (sex scene included). Nothing wrong with that in and of itself but that relationship seemed more subtle in the movie and wasn't really confirmed or denied, which I think was one of the most interesting elements of the movie.

The acting is pretty good and it's nicely shot. There is a quality death scene too. I'm gonna give it another ep or two anyway but I'd say it's piss ye 2 off   :laugh:

I hate when shows don't nail the ending but they got this spot on. Casting was perfect too, even aside from Capaldi.

Gonna start Interview With The Vampire this weekend. Hopefully it captures the feel of the movie and not Twilight or Vampire Diaries. There's also a new series, Let The Right One In. Again, hopefully it's along the lines of the movie, which was great.

Finished The Devil's Hour. Very good. Reminded me of another show in its headfuckery but I'll say no more.

Twas, in all honesty. After 2 or 3 eps I figured I may as well see it out. I think I played a few eps at 1.5 speed on my phone.

Quote from: Carnage on November 03, 2022, 05:32:35 PMWaiting for it to finish before binging it, I've heard only good things. Then again, I'm in the minority that loved Obi Wan Kenobi so what do I know?

I really liked that too. Gonna wait til S1 is done also.

Watched first ep of The Devil's Hour. Light enough on Capaldi so far but looks good.

Watched The Watcher on Netflix. Was grand enough.

Watched latest season of Westworld. It picked up in the last coupla eps but with characters repeatedly killed and then refabricated, it kinda ruined all emotional investment in the story. With Nolan's new show, The Peripheral, I don't know if there's any urgency on writing another season. That said, he's said that S5 would be the final season if/when it gets renewed.
