    I know this isnt universal, but sky might come into its own. I keep it because of a few reasons. If I just want to watch TV, I tend to watch it passively otherwise I get paralysed trying to decide what to watch.

    Secondly, it almost now acts as a content aggregator. Having content hived off and split across various various platforms is a hassle. If sky can condense most of that down to one platform, Im happy with that.

    That's kinda why I keep Amazon prime around. It generally has a lot of decent stuff and if there's anything specific I fancy, I can rent it for a bit extra. All in one place. Certainly beats the idea (and effort) of firing up my ancient PC and sailing the high seas for content lol

    The Great Outdoors - The forgotten 80s comedy movie. Forgotten because its actually not great. Its got a good cast but it doesnt really do much with them and, crucially, its not very funny.

    5/10

    To keep things on topic...

    Happy Death Day

    A fun, though very self-aware take on the Groundhog Day premise with fun horror elements thrown in. In a 'day-that-repeats' movie, it's actually refreshing to have a protagonist who isn't a know-it-all. She's a dumb idiot. And it makes her arc to overcoming her predicament more engaging.

    Not brilliant, but a fun place to spend 90 mins.

    7 1/2 out of 10

    Happy Death Day 2 U

    A sequel that spends so long setting up a spin on the 'day that repeats' premise by adding dimensions, it leaves little time to expand on the horror element that gave it a sense of identity in the first place. Once they get going on the dimensions premise things can be interesting. But pacing suffers a lot this time, you'll be wanting this film to just end instead of repeating again. And there are some truly silly moments (the blind/french roommate shtick) that take you out of the film entirely.

    5 1/2 out of 10

    I'd rewatch the first one, 2nd I can take or leave.

    Happy Death Day was really fun. And actually very funny in places. Never got round to seeing the sequel - I didn't feel like it was ever in dire need of one.

    The sequel isn't even really a horror movie anymore. It's like this Weird Science sci-fi comedy ripped out of the 1980s. Still heaps of fun, though.

    Saint Maud

    To be honest I wanted to like it more than I did. A carer who has suffered a trauma now lives her life by the word of god. As some good performances and as a couple of unsettling moments but it just didnít really click for me. It might be it works better on a second viewing as itís quite understated or even it might be something I just end up thinking about over time. Just given the plaudits I was expecting more.

    3/5

    Children Who Chase Lost Voices 6/10 Absolutely gorgeous anime. The artwork really is sublime pretty much throughout.

    The story though is your typical Japanese batshit crazy fever dream. Just short of 2 hours as well. Only for the committed, in every sense.

    Black Site

    I wanted to like this as the concept appeals to me - there's a secret site that used to banish Elder Gods from our universe. Unfortunately the execution falls short. There's occasional glimpses of what could have been, but it lacks the calibre of people needed to pull it off. Despite it's many issues, I did still find some entertainment from it.

    X2 8/10 much better than the first.

    X3 5/10 much worse than the second, a bit worse than the first but not quite as terrible as I remember. Still not good though.

    X men first class 8/10 could do with losing 20 minutes somewhere in the middle and Fassbender turning full on Irish near the end is still distracting, heís great otherwise.

    Iím was getting a bit bored of Wolverine by the end of x3, heís overused but doesnít really do anything interesting.

    It's on the list to show the kids, after they enjoyed Summer Rental. I have fond memories of it, but that was 35 years ago. :-/

    I loved it. Thought it was pretty intense and very, very odd. Didn't really get the end immediately, but reading an interview with the director meant it made a lot more sense.

    @JoelStinty Feel much the same. Glad I watched it for the excellent performances and the general mood, but overall came away not really getting what all the fuss was about.

    The Hobbit trilogy. I thought it was pretty good but disappointing in the cinema. I haven't watched them for a few years but watched all three over the last two days with the kids. Amazed how much I enjoyed them this time. Sure there are some poor characters, cringy dialogue, too many not needed scenes etc etc but I really loved it this time. It's kind of amazing it wasn't a total disaster when you know what happened before the films were shot. Definitely should have been two movies but anyway yeah I loved them these past two days.

    8/10

    Likewise, did the same a few weeks back, better than I remembered, probably a 7 for me, last one really drags it down, Thorin character was all over the shop

    Yeah they really over played Thorin's gold lust. Could have saved thirty minutes on the final movies run time. Sir Ian McKellen was again outstanding as gandalf and Martin Freeman did great as Bilbo.

    Did you watch the extended ones? I donít dislike the Hobbit films as much as most people but they definitely did not need anything extra added from the theatrical cuts - even they were too long.

    Yeah it is all the extended cuts and yeah definitely didn't need more. Tlotr extended added quality to them. The Hobbit was shot as two movies and they only decided to stretch it to three movie after completing initial shooting and then even managed to release three extended cuts!

    As far as the aggregate model goes - spot on. As well as trying to be seen as a creator of original content (to limited success, so far) Skyís focus at the moment is bringing all the tv together in one place. And to be fair after upgrading to an HDR box earlier this year I havenít used my TVís apps anywhere near as much.

    They could really help me out by adding Crunchyroll to the box. As LG donít have that as an app at the moment it requires me booting up the PS4/xbox to watch Attack on Titan. Itís a minor inconvenience, but an inconvenience all the same.

    1. John Candy eats a giant steak.
    2. Talking raccoons.
    3. Bearís arse.

    Is that about right?

    It was:

    1) The waterskiing
    2) The Talking Racoons
    3) The Bear getting shot in the arse

    Two points.

    The waterskiing bit goes on for far too long and, as a grown up, I just thought 'drop the rope, idiot'.

    Bram Stokers Shadowbuilder

    Old school horror with a demon hunting a kid. It's a bit dated, but works quite well.

    I find passive TV viewing quite good. If I'm on my lunch break I can either spend half an hour trying to find something to watch or just stick BBC on and watch whatever is on. Bargain hunt normally.

    And that's fine, sometimes i just want something background noise and don't necessarily want to actually watch anything.

    My go to background noise at the moment is BBQ Pitmasters. Every episode is the same, there's no manufactured drama/human intrigue as is common in most competition shows, it's just fat rednecks cooking gigantic pieces of meat and taking the piss out of each other.
