Part of me kind of wonders if David Lynch was amazed at the popularity of crap soaps operas and thought “I wonder how far I could push this?”

Look at Dallas! According to Wikipedia 83 million people tuned in to watch “Who Shot JR?” and it turned out to have been a dream! I wonder if David Lynch took inspiration from that and figured - let’s just make the FBI agent a kind of psychic ... or something ... and any plot holes ... we’ll just make it that he’s had a vision or it’s aliens or something.

I did stick with it and watched all 40 eps of series two. It felt like a slog though.

Unlikely seeing as the 'Who shot JR?' phenomenon was the end of season three and the 'dream' season came about in season nine .

Ahh I didn’t realise it was so far apart. I thought the dream was the conclusion of Who shot JR. I’ve never actually watched Dallas - just seen it referenced and priories elsewhere on tv - Family Guy and The Simpsons springing to mind first.

Started watching the hater, my thumbnail pic different,
Only saw first hour then some friends nipped round, watch rest later, just not quite feeling it, might think different when watch rest of it.
When Robert said if he doesn’t win I’ll kill myself you knew what tomasz was thinking.

I’ve tried uploading my thumbnail pic but it not working I keep getting this.

The thumbnail image might be the wrong format and needs to be a JPEG or PNG file.

Now I'm feeling the pressure @gag - if you don't enjoy the movie you will blame me for the rest of your life, follow me around and kill me...

Jokes aside, I hope you enjoy the rest of the movie.

Jigsaw (2017)

Despite coming some seven years after the previous and presumed final entry in the Saw franchise, even then i was in no rush to see this eighth installment.

I'm pleased i did though because it felt like a refreshing change from all the PG-13 jump scare supernatural nonsense polluting our multiplexes pretending to be horror films. Certainly Jigsaw won't convert anyone new to the series but i thought it suitably gory and enjoyably fun.

The traps used are as elaborate and gruesomely fascinating as ever with a plot that revealed a couple of tasty twists. Certainly it's familiar but as of summer 2020 there's not an awful lot of movies of this ilk doing the rounds nor has there been these last few years.

No worries, just don’t ask if such a film any good because I’ll just watch it and give a fake review to either make you watch a shitty film or put you off watching a decent film

I watched rest of the film I don’t know why I just wasn’t feeling it, but saying that it was a good and decent film that makes a refreshing change from all the same old same old that being churned out for the past few yrs or so, and it also ties in with what happening in the world these days with all the fake news and shows how if you’ve got the know how you can manipulate people etc and the problems it can cause eg .....Here a snippet from Wikipedia on the page about the film


Whilst fictional, the film does relate to ongoing real-life situations such as the use of social media to psychologically manipulate users and navigate public opinion through fake news. It is a representation of how online-propelled hatred can lead to severe consequences and real-life casualties. Three weeks after the filming was completed, Paweł Adamowicz, city mayor of Gdańsk and a liberal politician frequently targeted by online haters, was stabbed to death during a live broadcast charity event.

If these are the Consequences of fake news and hatred its actually quite frightening tbh.


Also the film is classed as a sequel to the directors previous film in 2011 suicide room .


Ps just spotted this HBO to make a series based on the film the hater,
