Thor Ragnarok on Netflix. Man, that movie is dope! Maybe the best Marvel movie I've seen so far. 

When does Infinity War come out?

What old shit have you watched recently for the first time?

    Oh, you mean New Old New Movies.

    I just saw "Jumanji" on Sunday. It was OK. Much less screamy-screams than the original, thankfully.

    Mountains May Depart (2015) was really great.  Even the ending gets points for following through, as ridiculous as it ends up getting.

    I really enjoyed Ragnarok (but thought Hulk talked too much), weird how quickly cinema releases are available on Netflix etc now. Used to be a year before a cinema release hit video rental, then another year before tv got to screen it.

    Not-at-all-old films I've enjoyed recently:

    THE DEATH OF STALIN
    This film was sick. Listed as black comedy, it's more black than funny (although is sadly hilarious at times), fucking exceptional cast, brilliant acting, looks amazing, and it's been banned in Russia, so that's Putin's seal of approval right there. Managed to get a DVD quality DL before it had even hit the cinemas here in BCN (which is a shame as I assumed it just wasn't going to be screened here).

    Cold Skin
    Was a surprisingly good film about a dude who goes to an arctic island to take weather readings (and escape/leave behind "something" back in civilisation), but shit goes down in an epic, vodka sozzled bloodfest.


    ...actually old(ish)...

    Mr Holmes

    Ian McKellan is always worth a watch, and he plays Sherlock in an unusual twist on the character. More a film about ageing and the vanishing of powers (go check Logan for more of the suffering hero if it's your thing), mellow but satisfying.

    I totally agree with your Hulk comment! 

    Was curious about Death of Stalin, mainly because the cast is tight. Will keep an eye out for it when/if it hits Netflix. 

    I actually watched Logan a day before Ragnarok, and I disliked it. Can’t quite put my finger on why other than to say the theme was highly intriguing, but the execution left me wanting.

    The Square is really good imo.  If you liked Force Majeure, then definitely give this a checky-check
