Yeah but he's fat in this show. Only buff, dancing Chris Pratt does it for me.

Movies about robots. Both non Hollywood, not action movies, involve a lot of psychology of fear of the intelligent machines being created and trying to remain in control.

"The Machine", British movie, set in the UK not especially far in the future or different reality, about a guy who makes the first fully intelligent robot as part of a military program.

Automata seems to be from a Bulgarian studio, set in the future wher mankind is all but wiped out and on it's last legs. Robots were built to help us but they failed .


Both great films


Not about robots, not sure wheter it's great or awful

Snowpiercer After cocking up an attempt to reverse global warming the whole world freezes and everybody dies. Except for the passengers on a train which travels perpetually on a world spanning track which it takes one year to circumnavigate. At the time of the movie this has been going on for 17 years. Rich people live at the front of the train in luxury, poor people at the back in squalor. The movie is about a revolt and attempt to take ove the train for better treatment.

Sound ridiculous, yes it is if you think about it too much. if you just go with the flow of the film it kind of works.

All from Netflix

'Snowpiercer' was not as bad as I was expecting it to be. My buddy can pick the worst movies.

And he usually does.

I watched a lovely film the other day. Hector and the Search for Happiness:



It's a feel good movie - unsurprisingly - but it's really quirky.

Heh. Yep, that could take awhile.

I've been watching Person of Interest. I remember reading a plot synopsis back when it was first being promoted and thinking it sounded dreadful. Then the other week I read a review that piqued my interest, so I figured I'd give it a go.

Really liking it so far. Kind of reminds me a bit of Quantum Leap in some ways. I'm liking the interplay of the two main characters - and I'm liking the subplot of the police officer trying to figure out who he is.

Just finished last season's Archer. Should have started recording this season's because now it will take forever to get the first 9 episodes. Oh well...at least we caught up on Doctor Who!

I am up to ep 16 of Lost, season 1.

I do realise, given the various opinions I've heard expressed by people who stayed the course first time out, that I may end up hating it... but right now I am enjoying it.

I'd forgotten how brilliant that first season was. How original. And, I find it works well as binge tv - the timescale of their stay on the island feels more in keeping with the speed the story unfolds.

It's also, as ever, a slightly odd experience, watching something I watched 11 years ago. Like a kind of time travel. Every so often I find myself accessing how I was feeling and the atmosphere of my life whilst i was watching the first time around.




[eta] in my defence - on weekdays I am interspersing episodes of Lost with chunks of work. Over the weekend, however, I basically took up residence on the island.

The musical comedy duo Garfunkel & Oates have a show on IFC, apparently, and season 1 just showed up for streaming. It's pretty funny stuff.

I have been indulging my love of Asian Martial arts movies. Mostly Chinese, but I've hit some Korean and Japanese ones as well. Favorites have bee Ip Man (1, 2, and The Final Fight), The Divine Move (Korean), Flying Swords at Dragon Gate, Tai Chi Zero and Tai Chi Hero, Dragon, and Journey to the West. This is a small sample. I've probably watched 30 or so in the last couple of months.
