Recently picked up the full series box set on DVD as I’m sick of waiting for Bluray. Available on iTunes in HD, but I’m not paying their prices just to allow me access to streaming - I got the whole lot on DVD for one itunes series.The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse. We have a prop from that in the kitchen. One of those films that I wish would get a release in a higher res format than DVD.
It took us a while to get around to it - plays with the notion of not being able to kill off your characters well, I thing. Mr Chinnery's giraffe probe is the prop we managed to buy.I never got on with the film, although I’ve only seen it once. Maybe I’ll revisit it after watching the series all the way through at some point.
Prometheus was such a let down, an extremely average film - but it looks beautiful in 4K on a really good TV. Scenery is breathtaking.Gladiator on 4k - Ridley Scott has the odd bum note in his back catalogue - Prometheus and Black Rain don't do it for me - but Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator and Thelma & Louise is a hell of a varied and top-notch list.
I’m still not diving into OLED. Hanging around the high-end fringes of LED in anticipation…Mars Attacks! on blu ray. Haven't seen it for a good few years. Last time would have been on the previous plasma. Anyone who doubts that OLED is better in every way is indulging in wishful thinking...
Still hanging in there with my plasma but brothers LG OLED is very good indeed.Mars Attacks! on blu ray. Haven't seen it for a good few years. Last time would have been on the previous plasma. Anyone who doubts that OLED is better in every way is indulging in wishful thinking...
Only watched Ghost Stories the other day (as I’m trying to watch more British films). Didn’t know what to expect, but was pretty decent.Byzantium - a twist on the vampire myth and well-done. Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton fit the parts very well.
Ghost Stories - a modern tryptic horror, co-written by The League of Gentlemen's Jeremy Dyson (which shows) - genuinely scary and darkly amusing in places.
