    Well,....fiddle. I just read the well written and presented critiques of The Outlaw King.
    And I asked myself, "What, Sir, have you been watching to stimulate conversation with the intellectual type?"


    Yeah...Chilling Tales of Sabrina....


    I'll slink off to my corner now.

    Yeah...I also been watching Knight Fall, but I was told I was a racist if I watched stuff about Templars and a Satanist if I watched stuff about Masonry.

    So I'm watching Sabrina I guess because...I don't know..seems as valid as anything else in the world right now.:confused:

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned it, but I thoroughly enjoyed The Haunting of Hill House

    I've watched a bit of Knight Fall, also, and will get back to it. I enjoyed Ironclad (also involved Templars plus barons and their war against King John). Re Sabrina, what I've seen of that so far (trailer only) seems like one of my ex's got a movie made about her. :eek:

    I searched Netflix for Ironclad. Didn't find it, either streaming or DVD. I'm not sure who owns streaming rights for it. I have the DVD, bought in a video store based on the cover image alone. It's not a 5-star, some would argue it's a B movie, and I wouldn't disagree. Still for those of us who enjoy those middle centuries of UK history, knights and all, it's a decent film. I watched some of the details of production. The producer went out of his way to research sets, castles, costumes, weapons, etc. Much of it is filmed in (CGI-modified) existing castles, including the one where most of the action happened. (The actual castle filmed was not Winchester.)

    And there are some notable actors. The guy who plays the psychopathic King John is a renouned Shakespearean actor. The Archbishop (who also narrates the film) went on to become the elder Lannister in GoT. There are other compelling roles also. Worth a watch, even if not on Netflix.

    I just watched the first 7 minutes.

    That's the most violent opening I've watched since Saving Private Ryan.

    But this one is different. The woman has a vision, and is angry.
    Eyes lost, then a horse, with a viking dousing blood on his head.

    Off to a rousing start ..

    Damnation.

    Just started watching, a movie about socialism vs capitalism during the great depression.

    In case some of you didn't know, the push for socialism ( or communism/marxism at that time) erupted in the agricultural areas of the country as banks foreclosed on farms in order to sell them to corporations, and tenant farmers were displaced and replaced by machinery.
    Violence was often unreported.

    “How it ends” was a good watch. Post apocapyptic with a good ending.

    I wasn't a fan of the actor when he was on the walking dead, probably more due to the show's writing, and didn't have high hopes when it was announced that he would be Frank Castle.

    And boy was I wrong. For those of us who grew up reading Marvel comics, he is the Punisher the same way that Robert Downey Jr is Tony Stark. They nailed the casting. The guy is Castle.

    If Netflix has done anything well, it's that they gave us both a Punisher and Daredevil series worth watching. I hate that they are ending.

    "You" was generally good.
