    The Last Kingdom. A surprisingly good story involving the rules of Alfred the Great and King Edward. Focuses on a fictional warrior caught between Danish and Saxon loyalties.

    Watching this series at the moment! Enjoying it!

    My husband LOVES this series and has been watching it avidly. Historically, it's actually quite accurate...

    Yes! It is really accurate I love it from that perspective I feel, being from Ireland, I am learning so much about the Viking and the Early British people as of course Ireland had a huge Viking invasion, followed by Norman, followed by British. I feel I am getting a sense of my early Irish ancestry on the Viking lineage.

    That one wasn't half bad. Maybe its a more current AI than other creations I've seen, or maybe its just the nature of music lyrics vs the more narrative stories of an AI creating a comedy or a horror story.

    I’ve got Tenet on dvd, it took me a few times watching it to get it all straight…

    Yes, it's reminds me of a bundle of selves, where their interaction alters their future self , and the future selves goes back to alter itself's future, which is the flowing constantly changing present...It scrambled my brain trying to work it out...

    Thought that was a very good example of lucid dreaming? People who are more experienced in this area may know … ? For me this is something new …

    It’s art, a music video made by artificial intelligence.

    You said.

    It seems a good representation of the fluid changing in lucid dreaming. I wonder if those who are more familiar with lucid dreaming also experience it in this way?

    Watching The Sandman on Netflix.
    I find it quite captivating.

    I heard good things about it, but then I’m a fan of the books.

    Went last night to see a special screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo. It’s been voted by filmmakers (not critics) one of the best films of all time.

    What WAS that?
    There was no suspense as promised, if so, it drug out forever in the first half. And not in a good way. Don’t get me started on the character development. Plot was stupid….I guess just a reel postcard of San Francisco.

    Anyone here seen it?

  • JeroenJeroen Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter Netherlands Veteran

    Yes, I remember seeing Vertigo. It does develop slowly, but it contains quite a few iconic shots of the Bay area which have become so common in cinema that we tend to take them for granted.

    I don’t think it is one of the best films ever, but it was a landmark in cinema history.

    I’m up to episode 6 now, it’s about reached the end of the first comic book. I’m really enjoying it so far, it’s an excellent adaptation of the story.

    I’ve only read comics 1,4,7,10 and 13. So a lot of the story is unknown to me, I just know a few basics, but I appreciated the quality of the story telling.
