    The Punisher did not exceed my violence tolerance limit.

    To be fair, that first episode was fairly brutal compared to the rest of the season.

    Close (2019 Netflix)- Noomi Rapace plays a bad ass body guard hired to escort a rich heiress. Thumbs up, although I found the end to be a bit muddled, regarding whom the bad guys really were. It was hard to keep track without a second viewing, and they kind of mislead you. ;)

    I’d post the trailer, but imo, it’s a spoiler.

    Glad you liked it! And yes, Gyllenhaal really does a stellar job with the character of Lou. I'm no expert, but I'd wager a guess that it's a pretty accurate interpretation of real life

    .

    I just finished this one. I also think Noomi Rapace did a great job, but other than that I had a hard time getting "in" to the film. But the action scenes were good, and the actors did a good enough job so it was an entertaining 90ish minutes even with it's flaws. The song over the end credits, Candy Says - Beautiful Feeling is great. Need to look more into their music.

    The Empire Strikes Back. A classic and one of my favourite all time movies.

    I agree with this assessment, it’s good, with mostly believable and for myself, impressive fight scenes, but not enough to lure itself into my library.

    Close was def a good watch for a lazy Netflix day. Thanks for the recommendation. What twist did they give away in the trailer (use spoiler tags of course).

    For Close? I just called it a spoiler because of the beginning sequence, but now that I think about it may have been shown in the promo, when the movie is pulled up for viewing.

    We were really surprised by this movie. At first we had little expectation that we would like it, then we were really blown away by how good the movie was! It's not great cinema, but it is a really good movie, if you like action that's well done and a straightforward story. The sequel is quite good, too! We're looking forward to the 3rd installment.

    Rewatched Moon(2009). Possibly my favorite sci-fi of “recent” years.

    Watch Mute with Paul Rudd. Same director, same universe.

    Yup, all good. I also liked Source Code. Looking forward to Duncan’s 2000 A.D. turn with Rogue Trooper.

    I would be revisiting Horror Express right now were it not for my data limit. I think I can wait til tomorrow to see it again. :)

    Glass (2018).
    I liked it! Even the so-much criticized ending wasn't that bad (esp. considering the director...)

    I watched a Glass trailer and it did not pull me at all. Now maybe I’ll change my mind when I eventually stream this.
