Thor 3 is really good.

Ace music, too. Not just the licensed tunes, but the soundtrack as well. Dude from Devo isn't it? Lovely synth.

'Killer App' was added to Netflix today. I managed 8 minutes before turning it off.

I watched The Girl With All The Gifts last night and really, really enjoyed it. It's ostensibly a post-apocalyptic zombie film but it's done with a slant I doubt you'll have seen before and a surprising amount of time goes by before they even bother explaining that's what's going on (which I mean as a compliment). Atmospheric as all shit and brilliant performances throughout, not least from the titular 'girl' who's fucking incredible despite being only about 12 when it was filmed. The rest of the main cast is Glenn Close, Paddy Considene and Gemma Arterton if you need that further hook. Very good stuff indeed.

Yeah, sure, it has similarities with TLOU that it doesn't share with most zombie flicks. I still think it's unique though given that
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Ellie isn't actually a 'zombie' whereas Melanie being explicitly on that side of the fence from the outset is, to me, it's USP (especially when you consider the ending).

I’ve considered the ending and I’ve decided it was garbage. I did write some words about it on here a fair while back I think. Essentially I thought it was brilliant until the last 20-odd minutes when it got very shit very fast. Still, as you say, very good (until then).

Eh, I thought the ending fit very well with the characters as they'd been shown up until that point. Indeed the general consistency of characterisation was one of the major selling point for me.

Also, having bothered to search back on your previous posts, you never actually bothered to explain what you didn't like about the ending even at the time so it's genuinely impossible to comment meaningfully.

I probably didn’t want to spoil anything... and now I can barely remember apart from “the *hnngh* children” bit. I’ll have a think.

I don't even have any idea what that's about so I'm completely out on a limb but I'm guessing that they started with the title and just went from there.

I've not seen the movie of The Girl With All The Gifts, but the book was okay.

I remember thinking there was no way in hell I wouldn't have shot the girl right at the start, though.

Pretty much.

It seems like a cross between Circle, I.T. and maybe a little Black Mirror, but you're watching the actors reading the script for the first time.

I enjoyed the book; the writer has done a lot of cool stuff over the years, like the Felix Castor series about an exorcist, and a load of Marvel comics and suchlike.

There’s a sequel out now, I think, or at least due very soon.

Most notably the original run of Lucifer (the Sandman spin-off that was made into a TV series recently) which was brilliant stuff.

A blunt razor and a blind barber?

Doesn't the Orient express run to Torquay or something?

Close. Venice.

But that's not the proper one, according to Seat61.

I was trying to work that out earlier, but googling it just brought up loads of ‘experience days’ sellers, so I gave up.

If I become an eccentric millionaire, I'll definitely organise BeexTrain on the Venice one just so we can play Mafia on the Orient Express.

It really is

I want a Korg and Miek... Thing. (I don't think a film would work, and a series would be too expensive). Maybe an animated series but PG-13 rated.? Yeah, that'd do.

If anyone didn’t know, Korg is voiced by the guy who directed the movie. He’s awesome.
