That looks class. I could watch Fassbender in anything though, some actor.

The Amazing Spider-Man is on ITV2 now.

All I can think of is How It Should Have Ended's "Poor Peter Parker". Also, it's really not very good. At all. Haven't seen TASP2.

Speaking of not very good - I saw Pitch Perfect 2 there with the missus. Another shitty sequel. Pure shite.

Saw one of the older x men films recently. They really would have been better off not trying to connect the two trilogies. Everything is a continuity error.

Watched Electric Boogaloo last night, the story of Cannon Films. If you grew up in the 80s and watched action flicks you'll most likely have seen quite a lot of their stuff, Death Wish, Masters of the Universe, Missing in Action, the second Chainsaw Massacre, real B-movie shlock.

Worth a look for nostalgia.

Insidious 3

Had its moments, but the acting, especially from the da, is fucking dogshit!

Also I was completely hungover and jumpy and nearly had a heart attack about 10 times

Lin Shaye or however you spell it is good craic. They tried to make her Ellen Ripley towards the end and it was cringeworthy but as a lead shes probably the best thing about the series. But yeah Gavin from Friends is made out of wood.
I actually enjoyed the whole trilogy, they all have some faults but I can't think of a horror one to beat it anyway. Evil dead at a push, but that stops being horror about 20 minutes into the second film.

Macbeth can go fuck. I spent enough time studying that at school watching adaptation after adaptation that not even Fassbender could make it interesting for me.

Pretty much exactly what I was thinking Lola.

In fact, it's the same for most Shakespeare for me. I also can't watch To Kill A Mockingbird without thinking about homework

Did any of yis see the BBC adaptation a good few years ago, with James McAvoy in the lead? It was gas, he played Joe MacBeth, tough but much-loved celebrity chef. Together with his wife, the manager, they conspire to murder their michelin star restaurant's owner so they can own it for themselves.

The three witches were binmen that Joe MacBeth used to talk to in the alley the back when he brought the bins out.

There was a brilliant bit near the start when he's busting some sous chef's balls about something. One of the kitchen staff says "he's a bit like Gordon Ramsay isn't he..." And MacBeth is visibly annoyed.

One of the others goes, "It's bad luck to say that name around here. We just call him the Scottish Chef."

:-D :-D

Yeah it wasn't great now that I think of it, but I thought the Gordon Ramsay line was clever.

I vaguely remember that. Didn't they also try and do something similar with Chaucer and make it modern? Pretty sure Billie Piper was in one.

Entourage a solid 30% on rotten tomatoes, less than that abortion of a remake of Poltergeist. They deserve to bomb after the last 2-3 seasons of that show, and their general smugness.
