Anyone seen The Vast of Night? It comes recommended on Amazon Prime but I tend to take reviews with a pinch of salt these days

the boyz let me down, american gods was ok, then I gave up on streaming; problem being the number of new shows coming out that are geared towards stuff I might have liked a few years ago.

the whole streaming tv culture and the type of tv it cultivates is bang on 2003  :-\

there's an early 80s arthouse film with an Eskimo word as its title. No speech, just layers of found footage of the natural and urban world....

does anyone remember the name? I'm intending on buying the bluray for a friend's birthday but my addled middle aged brain has let it slip....

Baraka perhaps?

Early 90s though...

pointlessly, I've bought it on dvd. Somehow putting a thing in a thing  to see a thing feels like a thing, even though it's quite cool you can get films like this on youtube...

I still have the box set of the first two 'qatsi' movies (have never seen the third one actually), but since I don't have a DVD player anymore I'm more likely to put it on on YouTube and leave it running for the music while I work, occasionally clicking into the tab for a few minutes of visual cortex massage. This reversed version is also great for the same purpose:

Same, I havèn't watched them in an age. Don't bother with the third one, it's awful. All I remember is poor '90s computer animation.

I have a nostalgic fondness for the blocky 90s computer animation stuff.

Imagine a 90 minute long Ozric Tentacles video and you'll be pretty close to its level.

I watched the most ridiculous film with Elijah Wood called grand piano.

Went to Mahon Point Omniplex in Cork for the first time in about 6 months - Batman Begins, among others, was being shown. Cinema experience in A/DC (After/During Covid) is pretty weird - only ten people in to see Batman, including me and two mates. They close off all the seats around where you book - left, right, in front and behind. Still it was pretty enjoyable to be in a lesser crowded area, with nobody rustling crisp packets in your ears so you can't hear the dialogue (and you'd need it for Batman Begins.... great film, but a lot of mumbling).

BB was as usual, awesome.

I watched Teeth again lately. It's a gas film. It's about the mythical condition called Vagina Dentata where a woman grows a set of teeth in her vagina.
I'm sure you can imagine the rest  :laugh:

Watched Rambo: Last Blood there. A tender, hearfelt commentary on the effects of post-traumatic stress syndrome, America's immigration policies, strained family relationships and the horrors of sex trafficking.
