    I like it. Maybe four out of five stars. Unfiltered language. Humorous.

    Yes I keep seeing it’s trailer when skipping through but always decide it’s for teens and early twenties audience. Ageist I know, but there is much on that platform, so I use homemade filters.

    “Homemade filters”

    Please share, because I find that it is not always easy to find what you want, or think you want to watch.

    Their in my head dive, I judge from the trailer if it’s going to be my cup of tea.
    Recently my daughter harassed me into watching ‘Snowpiercer’ ( the series) and after struggling through two episodes I gave up and concurred with my original filter based decision.

    How was this? Another one from my ever-growing list.

    Yeah, my evaluation as well.

    Not nearly as good as the movie.

    I'm watching Snowpiercer.
    It's like the Walking Dead on rails.

    I'm in now, so I might as well tough it out.

    Having worked for a Rail Carrier for 40+ years, I should be ashamed of myself.
    But then again, I know zombies don't exist.
    Except maybe at Trump rallies. 😛

    I think its the Zombie theme that would have got my daughter hooked. She would married one by now if they were real.
    TWD is one where I struggled through a whole series but in the end the dirt and grime got too much for me, I just wanted everyone to get a shower or at least wash their hands between cracking zombie skulls and eating.

    I will watch the film, roughly 2hrs is just about right for my attention span regarding zombies.
    I enjoyed both 28 days and 28 weeks later along with the early Romero type from the sixties.

    I appreciate hearing what other people are watching. These days I can rarely commit to a movie, let alone several seasons of a TV series.

    I'm not much into zombies, but did watch Train to Busan and the animated prequel Seoul Station at the start of the year.

    Oh I see! I thought you had access to something outside of Netflix which helped.

    Amazon search is even more challenging to use if you are looking for something outside of the marketing banners. I was quite surprised at how many movies they have, about 1,400 I think it was, although at least two thirds appeared to be complete rubbish.

    Apparently from a couple of lulls, especially in S5, Homeland is pretty much excellent all the way through.

    See, that's the thing. I had no idea there were zombies in the series.

    AFAIK, there were no "zombies" in the movie. Sounds like the series had to find another point of interest and some producer said, "I know! Zombies!"
