A busy month on the home front with plenty of TV drama consumed and not so much in the way of film. 8 vs 3
|Venom (2018) - TV Film|
This one rocked up on TV just as the second one was appearing in the cinema. I'm not a massive fan of the superhero film, but I quite liked this one. Plenty of humour in it and I do like Tom Hardy. It was much better than I expected.
|Fear of Rain (2021) - Netflix Film|
A bit of a psychological mind-fuck as you watch this, not really knowing what is real and what is hallucinatory for the main character. Had us on the edge of our seats and a decent hour and a half's viewing.
From Google ....
Rain has early-onset schizophrenia, a condition that not only causes her to see vivid hallucinations, but also puts a strain on her parents. When she meets Caleb, a charmingly awkward new student at school, she finally feels she has a lifeline to normalcy. But as Rain starts to suspect that her neighbor kidnapped a child, she must soon figure out who and what is real while also battling the overwhelming forces that haunt her daily life.
|Squid Game Season 1 (2021) - Netflix TV Drama|
|The Handmaid's Tale (2021) Season 4 - TV Drama|
Six episodes of ten watched and as per previous series it's very tense on a personal level as far as June, her estranged daughter's situation and the other Handmaids are concerned. There seems a bit less bigger picture this time around as far as Gilead is concerned, especially with the Waterfords imprisoned separately.
From Rotten Tomatoes ....
|Angela Black (2021) - ITV Drama Series|
|Hollington Drive (2021) - ITV Drama Series|
Four episodes long .... a dead child with two families caught up in the initial disappearance of the boy. We have lies, secrets, an affair, marital disharmony, bullying, a hampered police investigation and a lot more besides. It was semi-interesting, but as none of the main characters were especially warm or likable it was nothing to get excited about.
|Mrs Doubtfire (1993) - TV Film|
|Vigil (2021) - BBC Drama Series|
