    While I think that last "Acted" Spiderman movie was good on visual side and had good writing to support the plot, I was disappointed from actual plot which required Peter to be extra naive and have zero confidence one one side while tons of it to actually do what he does.
    I still like original one most.

    New Spidey can can still call himself "Friendly neighborhood Spider Man", but he is ultimately one of remaining carriers of Spirit of Avengers as their core characters are gone or no more fit to be Avengers due to changes in their mindset. And is Equipped to not deal with small time crime, but really strong enemies.
    Thanks, looks like fun and I hope Morgan Freeman has some wise lines there as he always does.
    (Btw. midway, movie reminded me of "Rampage: President Down".)

    If you have not seen following, do:

    This serves as good trailer as official ones reveal too much from the movie.

    Look at Billy Connolly in Mrs Brown, straight as an arrow and a great performance.
    Williams on Good Morning Vietnam was mixed, some straight and some comedy. When he told JT Walsh he was in more dire need of a blowjob that any whiteman he knows with a straight face was just perfect :D

    What was that film where Williams played a boy who prematurely aged and Bill Cosby was his teacher? THey both played it straight and it was a great film.

    I remember that from Czech TV: "CT1" = "Ceska Televize 1" (Czech Televison 1). Their translation never had anything that could be considered as derogatory. (So this was "translated" to something else.)
    Damage they did to Last Scout was beyond belief. But they did basically teach me to see movies in original languages.

    I tapped out after 2 episodes. It's a good story but just wasn't very well made in my opinion.

    I liked those original recordings with narration. I mean, this new series was not bad. But it depicted gore part of radiation, not terror and weakness those people felt on site.
    It is sign of times. They were selling something not many people are interested in.

    In that direction. I have seen Season 1 of Another Life. And anyone who can get through today's mandatory rainbow crew will be for quite eventful show that ends in: "F* Yeah! BSG 2.0 is about to start."
    (That's if they decide to make season 2 and continue in direction season 1 prepared.)

    Chernobyl is bloody great :) ive put the audio into the pc and listern toit most days.

    1 thing did get me though, i was listening to jared harris's voice and i knew that voice from somewhere, i didnt realise his dad was richard harris, he sounds so much like him they could have been twins.

    bored with modern fil;ms and superhero crap so im going on a dvd fest at amazon, i must have 500 quids worth in my save for later list and there some real real old b+w stuff in there, effing great :D
