    I really liked Bird Box. It had me in suspense most of the way through, which not many films do. The ending was a litlle weak, but overall very good.

    Just finished Bird Box. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Agree it can be a bit muddled who/ how people are affected but itís solid, suspenseful entertainment. Recommended.

    Iíve just watched it. It was fucking awful. It absolutely can be compared to The Happening because its the more or less the same premise. Though itís been a while since I watched that shower of shit aswell.

    There was no explanation for any of it. No explanation what was in the air, no explanation why it happened. Not much of a conclusion. What happens to them now? There was just nothing.

    Although having said that, it kept me entertained. Which I guess is what matters. But The Meg kept me entertained aswell. Didnít make it a good film though.

    Just my opinion, feel free to tell me Iím full of shit.

    If The Meg kept you entertained then your opinion is invalid anyway.

    I don't understand how The Meg wasn't an Asylum production

    When you decide to view it as a comedy after the first scene you manage to get along with it. But yes, the film is shit.

    @chopsen Series 2 showed that her condition was a result of experiments done by 001, or something similar.

    I went to see the Taylor Swift tour twice. The Netflix special is almost as good. I mean, it isnít, at all, but itís a pretty amazing concert film.

    I am trying to get my partner to watch Travellers but it feels a bit like I am letting her in on my affair with Marcy.

    I am watching BAKI (based on the manga Baki the Grappler). It is the manliest thing I have seen all year.

    @TurkeyNeck I won't tell you that you are 'full of shit' lol, but consider this:

    If you were in that environment as a character in the film, experiencing events as they did, you would never get an explanation.

    Therefore keeping it a mystery worked for me and made it more immersive. We aren't getting a scientific explanation of the entities when all of the scientists have gone the way of everybody else.

    Comedians of the World seems a bit overwhelming but watching the UK section today I've had a lot of fun.

    Mae Martin's set is probably the standout but I'm a huge Nish Kumar fan too.

    Enjoying "Hi score girl" its a shouty anime, but it has got some heart. Love letter to very early console gaming really.

    We binge watched the final 7 episodes of The Haunting of Hill House today .
    Loved it, some cracking acting.

    Scary House was basically padding for the majority of episodes. A couple of episodes in the middle were strong, but for the most part it was tedious dialogue, with some really hateful characters. Would've been much better as a 6 episode series.

    Just watched Bird Box, it is absolute rote shite. I'd advise anyone not to bother unless your standards are incredibly low and you fancy watching a film that pinches all the ideas from elsewhere, doesn't present them well and is sentimental to a fault.

    The new program about tidying is weirdly compelling.

    Seems to have been overlooked but You is really quite excellent.
