    For the love of God ... can someone please recommend something decent to watch.

    Action, war or sci-fi. Preferably lots of gratuitous violence, fast cars, guns and explosions.

    No romance crap.

    The new movie on Netflix "Extraction" was very good. I also Like Witcher and the Man in the High Tower. I'm watching a good gardening show filmed in Ireland but I can't remember the name.

      Couldn't finish watching Extraction (as commented below). I started watching Witcher which is good but I have to be in the mood for that sort of series. I've already watched Man in the High Tower, which was also good. I'll have to see if I can find the gardening show. There's a good one in Aus about a bloke from Tasmania who set up a garden down the NSW Coast near Bega. Really good series. He is a chef and also cooks the produce from his garden. Really interesting to see how he goes from nothing to a massive garden whereby he sells produce.

    "Triple Frontier" wasn't as good as it seemed, at least not for me... "Extraction" was amazing.. probably the best movie i've seen in a long while. I see "The Patriot" is trending on netflix, that was a very good movie. "The Foreigner" also good. "Blood Father" and "Battle: Los Angeles".

    Thanks everyone. I'm going to have a look at all your recommendations now.

    As an aside, I've just googled how to replace a chainsaw chain. OMG, talk about funny! One bloke went as far as to remove the spark plug, in case the chainsaw (even with the kill switch on) miraculously managed to start itself whilst he was replacing a chain.

    Another dude put on safety glasses. Hahahahahahaha! I nearly pissed myself! Yes, safety glasses when you're actually using the chainsaw but safety glasses just to replace the chain? OMG ... I need a decent movie fix!

      Thanks, I'll have a gander. I like a broad variety too. But sometimes, I just want a good, action movie without any romance, emotional, lovely, dovey, crap. Something I can sink my teeth into.

      The gardening/cooking show I was talking about is called "River Cottage Australia". It's not on Netflix unfortunately. It's on Foxtel but I cancelled the Foxtel subscription because of the lack of new movies. I couldn't find any full episodes but the trailer below gives a good intro. It is based on "River Cottage" which is an English show. It's very good. He cooks all manner of weird things like pig trotters and the like, as well as eating animals that he's raised.

    Oh, as another aside. I really like Jason Stratham's movies. That is until I attempted to watch some pathetic monster shark movie with him as the hero. OMG. It was terrible. I couldn't even get half way through it!

    Watched Extraction half way through. OMG, it is soooooo slow! The fight scenes are really good but can't get past the life history, soppy, blah, blah, blah crap. Got as far as them being holded up after being helped by a "friend". I'll bet you a dime to a dozen that the "friend" turns out to betray Hemsworth in some fashion.

    An older movie (WW2) that is currently on is "Attack Force Z" which has Mel Gibson and Sam Neill. I love the suppressed M3 submachineguns in it.

      Thanks Dale. I'll check it out. Love decent war movies. I do miss my husband's commentary though ... he used to decipher every movie for inaccuracies, hahahaha!

    I've watched the Mad Max movies and Rambo. They are classics now! My son used to put a headband on and pretend to be Rambo after watching the movie, hahahaha!

    Well, Blitz, being the Dalmatian-hugger you are, maybe you'd like the new Disney release:

      I did start watching it but lost interest. I'll give it another go. I think I just wasn't in the mood for it at the time.

    I've sat and tried to find something not stupid, not pro-commie, not utterly psychotically bizarre on Netflix. Because I'm so OCD, sometimes I find something. Often I'm in the History and Documentaries sections, however one starts to watch the thing and sees that it is a re-write of history. One ends up reading or checking the news online. And we all know that 98% of the news is Leftist indoctrination lies.

    During the 1980s, I read an article written by a Polish cabdriver working in NYC. He said that there was far more propaganda in the Amerikan press than in communist-controlled Poland.

    Good afternoon Old Geezer,

    I agree with that Polish cabdriver working in NYC. Don't know about Poland but worked for a year in Hungary as a NATO contractor. The English language Hungarian (since liberated in theory) media and local language (as per my interpreter) didn't come even close to the American trash.

      Ohhhh, I'll have to have a look at Punisher. I hadn't seen that one. Also Equilizer. I'll check it it out. Love Peaky Blinders. It's my favourite show. Thanks for the suggestions.

    I'm incredibly impatient and OCD. I've got around 15 different movies/shows I've started watching but have lost interest in. I agree, a lot of the docos are just rewrites. Really pisses me off big time.

    I loved Peaky Blinders. Reminded me of my childhood.

      My husband was actually brought up in that precise area. It's a very, very, rough and tough neighbourhood. Some of his childhood "activities" left me horrified ... the weapon of choice was usually a piece of 4 x 4. He was a Brummy through and through.
