I saw Atomic Blonde at the cinema the other day and really enjoyed it. I'm a child of the 80's so I grew up with the music and the fashion so it hit a great nostalgic vein for me too.
There's a particularly brutal 11 minute fight scene that's supposed to be one continuous shot that's amazing and very realistic. People get tired, hurt, desperate and you feel every blow.
Where I think the film failed was the way it tried being too clever, too many twists for the sake of it. Again it all comes down to story structure. Another great bit of advice from John Yorke's Into The Woods: If you don't have a certain scene, does it effect the story in any way? If the answer's no, then cut the scene.
I'm also about four episodes into American Gods. I know I'm late to the party but I'm really enjoying it. It's beautifully shot and edited and just ever so weird. I have no idea how well it's done but I'm not sure what the audience is - it's lots of things and nothing in particular. And did I mention weird? It's got me watching though.
I'm playing catch up with the last season of Vikings and of course, like everyone else, I'm watching Game Of Thrones. And like everyone else, I loved the latest episodes where the dragon does his thing.
