    Creep 2.  Dont bother.  Screenplay is average, acting is average, the whole damn thing is just a waste of 90 mins.

    Ending is shit too.

    Rotten tomatoes can go suck a dick, what the fuck are the critics smoking these days?
    I really liked this, easily as much as the first. I definitely think it's worth watching for anyone who likes the first. It's quite different, but then it kind of needed to be.

    All 10 seasons of Friends added today. Could that BE any more brilliant news?

    Dirk Gently season 2 coming soon

    It's no Douglas Adams and all the characters were really dislikeable and Max Landis is involved but it was entertaining enough

    The one where the husband slaughters the wife for watching more friends.

    Weeds is on Netflix. I've only seen the first two series but they were very good.

    :D

    It needs to be counter balanced with all The Simpsons imo. Which is unlikely now...

    I remember watching Friends back in the day and thinking it was acceptable, chewing gum for the brain type shit, but it's a painful watch now.

    Early seasons of Friends still hold up in my opinion, however, the later ones, after the show was a certified world hit and all the stars became millionaires, are boring pedestrian product placement hell holes. I think the cut off point is the London trip.

    It's probably the only American sitcom of this style that I find genuinely funny. Also Jennifer Aniston's nipples are always fun.

    It has its moments, but most of the characters annoy the shit out of me.

    I definitely saw it at the cinema :). I was cringing/grinning ear-to-ear when the original theme tune kicked in.

    The wife was watching friends last night and to be honest it's always been a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. I agree later seasons aren't as good but I was genuinely amused at the early stuff. I could watch Jen all day.

    For those that have seen the new season of black mirror, is the quality still as good?

    @Negan I've seen USS Callister and Hang the DJ, both are brilliant and among the best of the series. I think they're pretty universally considered the best episodes of the season though so I can't vouch for how good the rest is.

    Sounds like Friends was on a break.

    That era of E4 showing it constantly spoiled it slightly for me. I must have ended up seeing 5-10 minutes of each episode about 20 times over a few years. When the HD version appeared there was a bit of a novelty to watch some of it again but I don't think I'll be re-watching it on Netflix.

    I like the bit of Friends when Rachel didn't like Ross but Ross loves her but doesn't tell her and then when the roles are reversed Rachel ruins Ross' life.

    And then Rachel got a nipple erection and everything was ok again.

    Watched The Foreigner and Bright over new years, both on Netflix.

    I can understand why The Foreigner didn't get a mainstream cinema release what with there being a bus that blows up on a bridge... kind of foreshadowing two of the worst terrorist attacks London had seen so understandably if people were a bit squeamish of showing that in cinemas. I liked it though, thought it was a pretty good movie. Could of done with less Brosnan and more Chan, but seeing Jackie Chan playing a NON smiley role is like staring at a kicked puppy.

    Bright was fun. It's not a great movie. It's a fantasy buddy cop film with quips about RACISIM IS BAD. I half expected to see #OrcLivesMatter somewhere in the film. Also, I really want to see Orc NFL now.

    I died a little inside when they spelt out 'Fairy Lives Don't Matter'. Subtlety is a thing of the past, huh?

    @Negan I just got through the whole season, finished Black Museum on New Year's Eve. I liked all of them, and *loved* Black Museum and Arkangel. Nothing has quite the same punch as Seasons 1 and 2 did, but it's still one of the best things on TV I reckon.

    Ross would be such a closet MRA these days. Absolutely awful internet history. A real Jared O'Mara type.

    Everyone in Friends is a terrible person except Joey and maybe Rachel.

    Gunther has spree shooter written all over him.

    The earlier seasons of Friends relate closely to my childhood so they're quite nostalgic for me. I think towards the end I lost interest as I'd grown up and become supa cool and stuff. I've now not seen it for ever, so might watch some.

    I'll also happily watch Dirk Gently series 2. It wasn't amazing but I enjoyed the first, as very much a non-DA purist.

    I'm sure that prison planet guy has made a YouTube vid several hours long about that.

    Rachel's constant jealousy and sociopathic meddling reminds me a lot of the main character of My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and that lady has an acknowledged mental illness.

    Can’t unread that article about how Ross is an asshole stalker pervert. Having just rewatched all 10 seasons, it was just so blatantly true. What is worse is that I believe David Schwimmer was one of the main writers too after a while. He had no growth, was an extreme narcissist and had no respect for Rachel or his other relationships. (Although i do agree he was on a break :))
