Re: Movie mini reviews

Star Wars: The Last Jedi I'm going to stick spoilers on everything, including my opinion of it. I was hugely underwhelmed. Throughout the film I was sat there thinking "really, is this it?". A lot of stuff just didn't work for me. Main issues below in no particular order: * Out of place hu...

Re: Recommended Reading

The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath Plath's only novel, a semi-autobiographical story about a girl whose life takes a bit of a downward spiral. This reminded a great deal of Catcher in the Rye, with the exception that I found Holden Caulfield to be excruciatingly irritating. Not so with Esther Greenwood, t...

Re: Recommended listening

The aforementioned Villains came out last Thursday and I've been listening to it an awful lot ever since. Despite my initial reservations, I am in love with this album. It is very different from their previous stuff which has put a lot fan's noses out of joint, but then again some of them have been ...

Re: New season talk type thread thing.

New season of Preacher has started, and it's as gloriously unhinged and mental as ever.

I think American Gods has finished. There was no new episode tonight, but the last one didn't have the feel of a series ending episode. It's still fucking boring though.

Re: Recommended Reading

John Dies at the End - David Wong I've heard this recommended a number of times. Written by one of the editors at Cracked, and described in places as a sort of comedy Lovecraftian horror. I expected decent things, but I was left sorely disappointed (in fact I very nearly just stopped reading, but I...

Re: New season talk type thread thing.

American Gods 5 episodes in, and bloody hell is it ponderous. Whoever was saying this would rival Game of Thrones is a raving lunatic. It's still watchable, but that's mostly because of the wonderful Ian McShane. The background music is fucking awful - I'm noticing how bad it is more and more, and I...

I like Jason Bateman, and it will be interesting to see him in a non-comedy role.
