RE: What are you watching?

Watched Insidious last night, was really looking forward to a good old scare, didn't happen unfortunately, seemed to set the scene really well but couldn't deliver at the end, it didn't help that the main horror character reminded me from someone from The Mighty Boosch.

Has anyone seen a good horror lately, I do wonder if it is possible to make a scary film nowadays.

One of the best thrillers of all time, excellent film.

last action hero

Can't been a bit of Arnie Smile

On blu-ray (via Lovefilm), though the image quality seemed to fluctuate between VHS, DVD and Blu-ray quality - like it had been patched together. Very odd.

I have been watching the Crime and Investigation channel every night.  I like Snapped Women Who Kill and Britain's Biggest Taboos.  Smile  I am addicted to it!

An epic, only way to describe it.

The Killing, first two episodes of season 3 tonight, and as good as the previous two so far. Shame it's the final season.

Aye, a must-see IMHO. And you'll recognise the 2nd-lead, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau - he played the main character in Nightwatch.

It's £12 at Amazon and £10 at Sainsbury's stores or £8.99 online

RE: What are you watching?

Umm, much to my chagrin, til recently I wasn't aware of The Killing  embarassed

Do I need to watch seasons I and II first or can I plunge straight into III on iPlayer?

RE: What are you watching?

Each season has been a seperate story, so I don't think it'll do any harm to watch Season 3  first, though obviously I don't know what will happen, so there may be a link to the previous seasons in this one.

Thinking about it, might be better to start at the beginning.

Season one is 20 hours in total, 2 and 3 are 10 hours.
