So I went to see Avengers Assemble. It was awesome! What more is there to say? Well, for a start, it was a lot better than I was expecting. I didn’t think it would be nearly as good as it was. It was a lot funnier than I thought it would be too. But then it was directed by Joss Whedon, who is pretty good at that kind of thing. He’s only done one film before, Serenity, but that was an excellent film.
So I was impressed, and I really hope they do another one.
I’ve been using netflix on a month’s trial for just over a week now. It is useful, it is cheap for unlimited streamed video for £5.99 a month, but the big drawback is the quality and the consistency of the service. Sometimes it is just unwatchable. The picture quality can be terrible at times and then it just cuts out altogether, sometimes for several minutes at a time.
So, whilst it is fine for just catching up on shows on a small screen, like an iPad, I just wouldn’t use it on the big screen as I don’t think it would be watchable. So whilst I think it’s a handy service for catching up on things that I’ve missed, I can’t see it as being more than that until the quality improves radically.
As for the amount of material available, well, it isn’t wonderful to be honest. There are plenty of things I was hoping to find on here that aren’t, which is a shame, but maybe as it gains users in the UK it’ll improve.
