    Man, I forgot all about Polar. Loved it. I can never remember that actor's name but I've always enjoyed his performances. We watched Highwaymen last night. My wife didn't even recognize Costner. Lol! It was pretty decent. We're gonna try Layer Cake with Daniel Craig tonite.

    I can never remember his name either, I just remember him as the bad guy from Casino Royale

    Yeah my wife said no to Polar as well lol. She watched the first 10 minutes while she was getting ready to leave and said yeah you can watch this one without me lol

    My wife liked Polar but didn't really care for John Wick which struck me as strange. I could watch JW over and over. Didn't watch Layer Cake. Wife saw Eli Roth of "Hostel" and "Cabin Fever" fame had another movie out. "The Green Inferno". Fucking terrible movie.

    That is odd she liked John Wick but not Polar. I could easily see Polar as being to over the top and cartoony as compared to John Wick

    TBH this was me - loved JW but polar just didn't grab me in the same way. Mads Mickleson is a good actor but was wasted in this (IMO).

    Another few good shows if you like binge watching:
    Vikings
    Black Sails
    Hell on Wheels

    Don't forget Game of Thrones is back this month too!!

    I gave up on Hell on Wheels. First and second season I liked. Just added Viking to check it out and will look for Black Sails. That was a pirate show wasn't it?

    Vikings is good. Almost the same show but different actors is The Last Kingdom - set in the same general time but all in England after the Danes have established themselves.

    Yeah we watch Vikings as soon as it's available. Hell on Wheels' last season just didn't do it for me or the wife. We kept watching hoping it would get better. Haven't heard of Black Sails. I'll have to check that out. Over on Hulu, I really like Westworld. Barry is a pretty good show too. We watched, well mostly just me, watched Jonah Hex. It was a fun, "turn off your brain" and enjoy it kinda movie.

    Black Sails is similar in concept to Vikings:
    pick a historic period
    throw in a number of real historical figures (to keep you in wikipedia checking out real world history)
    populate with fictional characters
    add sex & violence to flavour
    add special effects
    et voila - your dish is prepared
