I'm a filmmaker and film enthusiast. May start to put up some dream projects. Depends. I hope you enjoy listening to me spout nonsense. Follow my youtube channel here:
British TV Comedies to binge for lockdown
As an English lad living in Thailand, it is hard to find television to scratch the itch of a quirky British show. Thank the lord for Netflix. Throughout British television history, there have been some excellent gems that truly deserve to get international attention. And yet, it doesn't happen....unless America pick up the option and make a sub-par remake. This list attempts to shine some light on some shows that truly need to be watched. Let's jump right in.
Live Action Simpsons Movie: Re-Cast
You've got your mates round. You've all had a few drinks. You wanna play a game to have a good giggle. My go0to is something I call, "Re-Cast." Just pick a popular show or movie, and make your dream cast. You can add some drinking into the rules for good measure. But there is hours of fun to be had. Especially if everyone disagrees, then it becomes an insightful hypothetical debate that really means nothing at all. But it's great fun.
Red Dwarf: 10 Best Episodes to Watch for All Smeg Heads
After my last list focusing on Doctor Who, (https://futurism.media/doctor-who-10-best-episodes-of-the-modern-era), it was pointed out to me by a friend that I've been shining the torch of Red Dwarf far brighter than Doctor Who over the years. So I thought I'd do a list for all you Dwarfers out there.
'Doctor Who': 10 Best Episodes of the Modern Era
Doctor Who is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. And when I say guilty, I really mean it. It's hardly a TV show that someone who loves cinema should pay much attention to. And it's filled to the brim with dud episodes that a binge watcher could happily skip over. But for every mediocre/bad episode, there is one that is really too good to be a Doctor Who episode. These are the episodes that make the whole show worth watching. And why wouldn't there be? With the writing talents of Steven Moffat and Russell T Davies there are bound to be some good episodes in there. The show is fun. And that's all you should want out of the things you enjoy, they should put a smile on your face and help you kill 45 minutes of your day.
'Subnautica': a Great Game!
Ok. I'm not a big gamer. In fact, besides the odd kick about on Fifa, I'm a bit of a 'noob' to most people's standards. I've always been much more into movies. But that's not to say I'm a stranger to the gaming world. There was once a time I had a PS2, and we all know how much fun a kid can have when they are left alone with GTA San Andreas. But as I got older, with less free time on my hands, movies were more convenient for me. I remember buying Skyrim on a recommendation and spent about 40 hours without sleep grinding it out. I needed to put it down. I enjoyed it way too much. What I loved most about Skyrim was the scale, and how cinematic each location felt. The attention to detail, besides the odd comical glitch, was a pleasure to behold. So that's my credentials. If you don't want the opinion of a 'noob' look away now.
10 Films You Really Should Watch That You "Probably" Haven't
Right. Time for a bit of fun. Remember, my good movie may be different to your good movie. And if you've read anything of mine before, you might already be primed to disagree. But lets jump into it, nonetheless.
The Best Superhero Movie That No One Has Watched
As fun as these superhero films are, they aren't breaking the mould, or doing anything Oscar-worthy, are they? With a few exceptions, its a genre of simple stories and predictable results. I think this is why people really enjoyed the new Avengers film. It expertly subverts our expectations of the genre.
