Would’ve done the same, but fortunately Sky offered me Netflix for a fiver, so switched through them and now saving Ł7 or something a month.

Couldn't find a mention of it on here, but looks like this could be fun (or so bad it's fun).

What appears to be a live action Five Nights at Freddy's with some added Cage Rage No mention of which streaming service it's going to be on so far though.

Tom Hanks latest, News of the World is on Netflix as of today, so glad that Netflix is now staggering some content during the week instead of dropping everything on a Friday.

Will give this one a spin tonight.

News of the World is a cracking film, I thought the trailer painted it as a slow film that i was going to struggle watching all the way through. Not the case, once it gets going it is tense and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Really enjoyable and a special mention must be given to Helena Zengle, no idea how old she is but she absolutely not only holds her own against a veteran Tom Hanks but she delivers such a fantastic performance you forget you are watching a child actor which is incredibly remarkable with how little dialogue she has.

Multi award-winning Helena Zengel (born: June 10, 2008, Berlin, Germany) started acting at the age of 5.

Excellent reviews for her in: System Crasher (2019)

Glad to hear it as I've thought for a while Tom Hanks is a name you can rely on, its rare that he makes a dud.

I’m really loving Kid Cosmic on Netflix. Very unassuming, joyfully animated tale of a boy in a remote town and his imagination coming to life.

watched News Of The World last night and it's brilliant - reminded me of The Outlaw Josey Wales and there's not much higher praise from me.

Really impressed by Greenland. Plenty going on and moves at a decent pace.

Thumbs up for The Dig from me.
With Greenland and News of the World (which I'll watch next Friday) Netflix has hit a purple patch for films.

Keen on Greenland, but seem to have a phobia of seeing and type of kids in distress or sad after having a baby during a pandemic.

I felt like this also. I was in tears watching them put baby superman into the spacecraft at the beginning of the Superman I.

I must be the only one that didn't enjoy Greenland, for the whole film I felt like I wish I was watching anything else. Seen it all before, nothing new, couldn't really care about anyone and probably watched all the way to the end as it has been ages since we have seem Morena Baccarin on screen.

I also saw News of the World the weekend and it was like a gentler Hanksified The Searchers. The original is better, enjoyed it though.

We were another household that found Greenland to be very effective.

Yep.

And one of the, many, things wrong with Greenland ... you see it coming a mile off

We both really enjoyed it overall, just that one bit nearly broke my wife given everything going on.
