GOMORRA

Oh dear, THIS is mafia in all its misery. It makes the Sopranos and The Godfather look like gay pride marches. Such a gritty edge to it and the only thing we can be sure of is that death is always near. Apparently the author is in hiding due to the fact that some of the themes are a little too close to reality.

This is Italy without the pizza and other clichés. Misery is always near and the poverty almost guarantees criminality and drugs. A terrible part of Napoli to live in!

First couple of seasons are on Netflix at the moment. Well worth watching (with subtitles).

Just saw Joker. Oh my goodness, not much of a comic kind of guy. But this is Taxi Driver of the 21st century. Unbelievable. Mind blown. Joaquin Phoenix deserves every accolade.

EDIT: There seems to be a huge backlash from the social justice warriors online. The Guardian offered a very favourable review in line with others at the preview and now another Guardian reviewer has now relegated it to 2 out of 5 stars. This is in line with the present trend online to suggest the film is nothing more than an "incel" white man raging. I hope the film is remembered for the incredible performance of Phoenix.

Been watching a show i didn't give a chance a few years back but tried it out a second time around and i'm hooked.

Show is called Kingdom, which revolves around a MMA gym and family of MMA fighters.

Great show, 3 seasons in total.

The Taxi Driver influence is very apparent.

Agreed. But it went far beyond that and is infinitely more relevant in this social climate.

I love this guy's reviews. This one is spot on:
