You might enjoy Draft Day, they don't actually play a game in it. It's about the wheeling and dealing that goes on during the draft of college players at the start of the season. I watched it with fairly low expectations as similarly as you not a big fan of sports films but as I said was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.
And in conclusion, how far had you got through reading this before you realised it was my signature?

I find I rarely enjoy sports films. The stories are almost always identical throughout (this isn't about 'Draft Day' as I haven't seen it, but more a general point), and they either win or lose the big game at the end with only seconds to spare. I did enjoy 'Moneyball' however, but mainly because it appealed to the spreadsheet nerd in me and I think it's a great way to assess players.
Sometimes they draw.

US Netflix is amazing. I love trashy reality TV like 'Big Rig Bounty Hunters' and 'Stan Lee's Superhumans' <awe>.

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is pretty good, I just watched the first season. A lass who was held captive in a cult for 15 years trying to build her life in New York

Watched Calvary. I'll give The Raid 2 a go. Hopefully it isn't as boring and repetitive as the first one <roll>.

Just kidding, it wasn't bad, but it's massively overrated by film hipsters.

It was good. Brendan Gleeson was great as always and it had its funny moments. I'd probably only give it a 6.5-7/10 though

Anyone watched any Peaky Blinders? Thinking of starting it. Got a couple actors I like (Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Sam Neill)

Just watched the first episode of House of Cards - pretty decent, about to watch episode 2.

Sam Neill's Belfast accent in Peaky Blinders is f***ing awful

I've just spotted this...

Raid 2 is awful! And The Raid was excellent. How anyone can think the other way round is beyond me!

How do you access the US version? I used to be able to get it on my PS3 before the clamped down on it a year or so ago.

If you're willing to pay about £2.50 a month unblock-us is great for Netflix tourism (or just about any location locked services) and can easily be set up on PS3 / most devices.

On that note, apparently Guardians of the Galaxy is on the Dutch Netflix now.

Mod Edit: Don't use Hola. It's a botnet http://motherboard.vice.com/read/your-t ... to-hacking" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Hola unblocks all foreign Netflix for free and is incredibly easy to use because you just install it once and it sits in your browser doing all the work <diva>.

I haven't tried it but apparently it works with Android, iOS and Apple. Not sure about PS4
I dunno
