That new series Godless is getting strong reviews.

Logan Lucky - yeh, worth a watch
The Young Karl Marx - ditto

Anyone with an Android phone should seriously consider just buying a Chromecast and downloading the Showbox app http://showboxappdownload.com/

Everything streams to your tv in 720p with no buffering. Has pretty much everything like the film manula just suggested for example. I haven't used Netflix or Kodi since

Steve Jobs. Didn't have high hopes for it but thought it was outstandingly good.

What the difference between Chromecast and Chromecast Ultra?
Also, this Showbox has completely free movies/shows with no catch?

Faster streaming capabilities to my knowledge so good if you're streaming Ultra HD. I have the original chromecast and have had virtually no problems with it.

Showbox is free. No relentless captcha codes or shoddy audio syncing like Kodi which was killing me. Don't know too much about it other than it works.

I've been told not to bother with the new star wars film by a couple of people now. Apparently it's rubbish.

Took the FAM on opening day, As a (only) child of the 70's I am a prime SW nerd. Can honestly say I left the Cinema shell shocked.
Kids loved it.
Out with the old and in with the new.

If you enjoyed Force Awakens you'll enjoy this one. It definitely isn't as good as some critics are saying. I'd say they're more a fan of the director than the actual film.

Kids today don't know shit Padawan. If you showed them a CGI retarded monkey taking a dump they'd think it was a cinema masterpiece.

It was kind of refreshing for a while to see a white female character who was incompetent and bad at her job for a change…but no she actually turns to be the most good and noble woman in the universe…I guess there was one bad woman in the whole movie (black Stormtrooper's old boss) but aside from that they were all awesome and all the men were evil, ugly or dumb and cartoonish. Payback by women's lobby for percieved injustice in hollywood? It was so blatant. Just make a f***ing movie, why be political with Star Wars? Felt so preachy.

Oh and 2017 CGI next to costumes and real sets STILL looks as out of place as it did in 1997.

Best shots in the whole movie: 1. When the camera flies over the Casino interior at the start of that scene (Did I see Howard the Duck?). All costumes, all creative monster designs, NO CGI. 2. The AT-ATs standing with the sunset behind. Must have been real models.

Hyperspace ramming was something epic and big for Star Wars, felt like something out of Gunbuster.

The imperial (first order? who cares?) ironing boards were a reference to the Hardware Wars shorts I used to watch on TV in the 1980s?

So the movie sucked okay, was waaay too long, too preachy, acting and story unlikable, humour was a little off key.

But it had a couple of highlights.
