This is getting stupid
Just one example of why I'm going off this series:
Flesh and bone tougher than brick apparently as a man is hurled through a solid wall and not only survives being smashed into meaty pulp but just gets up and walks away. I don't care what he's possessed by, it's still a human body vs brick and that's just dumb.
It's more 'comedy' than drama now, but unfortunately not funny in the slightest. An annoying dim witted gobby little girl, Hopper acting like a dick, children who miraculously pluck all the correct answers out of thin air, the stereotype 'comedy' black characters (three of them now), the Terminator style foreign hard man who's unstoppable, lots of people shouting in each other's faces, villains with no peripheral vision, the indestructible and superhuman heroes, the cheesy one liners and dreadful dialogue...
It's authentic 80s that's for sure, except I personally couldn't bear 80s movies first time round. Don't think I can take any more...
Ok ok I get it: I'm a bad person because I'm a man; I'm a bad person because I'm white. I'm probably a bad person because I'm middle class too. I'm suitably ashamed of myself. Now I've given myself a jolly good telling off can I have my favourite programme back please?
I've been watching since 1973 (but since the very beginning via DVD, VHS, tv repeats, conventions etc etc) and this was the first episode where I literally got so bored I walked away. What drama there was was about as threatening as Scooby-Doo.
The Doctor calls people "mate" now, and I don't think I'm going to be able to tolerate much more of her 'hilarious' verbal diarrhoea. The default mode of the Doctor since David Tennant seems to be motormouth stand-up comedian. That was never my view of the character but it's so ingrained now that everybody else seems to take that as definitive Doctor.
I need to say something nice about this awful episode... Um....the spaceship interior was gorgeous. I'd forgotten how much I missed gleaming white spaceship corridors. There.

Blah blah blah
Blah blah blah...big spiders...blah blah blah...he's a bit like Trump...blah blah blah...sad companions...blah blah blah...sonic screwdriver...blah blah blah...Doctor is 'funny'...blah blah blah...guns are bad...blah blah blah...pollution is bad...blah blah blah...big corporations are bad...blah blah blah...Doctor talks fast...blah blah blah...horrible rap music...blah blah blah...spider dead...blah blah blah...moral outrage...blah blah blah...team TARDIS...blah blah blah...the end.
I really don't mind that it doesn't follow directly on from the previous cliffhanger; I'm a patient guy, I can wait. But...this was just terrible. There's good 80s and bad 80s, and this was like the very worst aspects of the 80s. A bunch of awful self pitying teenage characters, a cheesy rock soundtrack and even a montage where a character becomes 'badass'. Nobody to like, nothing to enjoy. Oh, and if Kali was (presumably) separated from her mother as a baby or toddler, where did she pick up an Indian accent? Thank goodness this wasn't the first episode I watched or I wouldn't have bothered with the rest, which is generally superb.
Astérix le Gaulois (1967)
Wrong dubbing credits
I don't know where these credits come from but that's definitely not Paul Angelis, Terry Scott etc on the English language version of this. They are clearly American actors for a start.
The terrible dubbing and the crude animation (so unlike the beautiful work of the originals) spoils this film for me.
I gave up
I wanted to enjoy this film but after about 20 minutes of struggling to decode Matthew McConaughey's slurring and mumbling words I was unable to follow it so admitted defeat and gave up. Maybe it's a great film otherwise, I don't know, but if I can't understand what the main character is saying there's no point watching.
The Crazies (1973)
If you enjoy seeing bad tempered men being constantly hostile and rude, shouting at each other for 100 minutes and saying "ass" a lot, you'll love this film.
