Catwoman, Riddler, Jim Gordon, Penguin and a hint of the tired Joker. Looks good.
‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2’ trailer
The sequel no-one wanted. The timeline has changed and the trio of morons (no John Cusack this time) go to the future of 2024. Looks offensive and stupid.
“Smells like hatred.”
“A Scandinavian gay bar.”
Idiots play with a Ouija board cue shadows and weirdness. Looks okay.
“I don’t think this is a good idea.”
“She woke something up.”
“It will keep coming for you.”
‘Sleepy Hollow’ season 2 trailer
John Noble, the Horseman and the end of days approaches. Ho-hum, I really don’t care.
“The Horseman of War is my son.”
‘Supernatural’ season 10 promo
‘A Touch of Cloth III’ part two promo
‘Sin City 2’ TV spot
'The Brotherhood’ (2000) trailer
Bad acting, pretty boys in PVC, axes, underpants, slapping and bad bleach jobs. Cheese.
‘The Negotiator’ (1998) trailer
A cheesy 1990s trailer. Danny Roman is the self declared best hostage negotiator in Chicago. Then he takes hostages to prove his innocence after being accused of bad stuff. He demands Chris Sabian come talk to him. The trailer spoils the movie a bit.
“Now you’re going to have to deal with both of us.”
‘Consenting Adults’ (1992) TV spot
Richard doesn’t suspect his best friend (Kevin Spacey) is a diabolical nutter.
“Come to poppa!”
‘From Hell’ TV spot
Depp = a sad man.
I’m not even going to bother with the new Rob Thurman novel ‘Downfall’.
There will be no review of ‘Reign’ 1x04 ‘Hearts and Minds’.
I will review ‘Elizabeth of York’, ‘Frostbite’ and ‘Shadow Kiss’.
I am reading ‘Murder Most Unladylike’.
A ‘King Kong’ sequel called ‘Skull Island’? No.
Chris Pratt in ‘Jurassic World’? No thanks.
Kyle MacLachlan in ‘Agents of SHIELD’? Mmmm.
Nutty Chicken and Waldorf Salad Sandwich = yum.
Chicken kebabs = lovely.
Semolina cake with Rose Water = lovely.
Lemon Sherbets = okay.
Kevin Spacey movies I have seen: ‘Horrible Bosses’ and ‘Swimming With Sharks’.

On ‘Hollyoaks’; 40 something saddo Tony continues to shag his stepdaughter/teenage prostitute Sinead. Sam and Danny die in a car wreck. A new gangster named Big Bob shows up to bother Trevor. Controlling, neurotic crazy Cindy bores. The new opening credits debut: Cameron, Peri, Tom, the Osborne’s and Nico are either added or have new moments. Sam and Danny are gone. Nice.
Cleared out a 2002 tape. It began with a season 6 ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Life Serial’ in which the tracking was way off. The Trio bother Buffy. There is sexism, dullness, bad diction and general gibberish like one of Kanye West’s tirades. This was not true and authentic. Then came a season 3 ‘Angel’ ep ‘That Old Gang Of Mine’ in which Wesley bores, Gunn bothers his old gang, Fred sings, Lorne lurks and this was crap and near unsustainable.
Then came an ‘I-Man’ ep ‘Brother’s Keeper’ in which Darien is stricken by Quicksilver Madness and his employees are arseholes. Darien gets his starkest worst idea yet to shoot himself up with Kevin’s RNA and cure himself. Naturally it all goes wrong admist howls of criticism, even dead Kevin manages to instigate further crap, Darien combs his hair in a silly way and his inept ‘arch nemesis’ shows up. This was crap with bad SFX and ignorance.
“Why are you shaking your head?”
“Why does the weather get like this every time someone tries to screw with the boundaries of science?”
Finally there was a season 1 ‘Smallville’ ep ‘Jitters’ in which Clark acts impaired and a trip to the Luthorcorp plant goes awry. Is Clark supposed to be 14? Where did Lex’s love of fencing go? Lionel bores. Jonathan won’t shut up. Guest star Tony Todd is wasted. This was appalling as Lex wears a purple shirt and Clark lies. Kevin Spacey was a more menacing Lex in 2006.
