Frankly, it’s a bit of a quiet week. So, might I recommend a few movies. Netflix has a bunch of films worth your time right now, but in the past fortnight they’ve added one of my all-time top 3 films The Untouchables. That film is a blast.
Meanwhile, over on Amazon Prime Video in Australia I noticed that Mission: Impossible - Fallout and Venom are both streaming. It’s loud, great fun for a Friday night.

A group of rebels, "The Liquidators," reject life with the bots - and are ready to shed human blood in their war against the machines.
