    Unfortunately and stupidly they aren't releasing Dune until November in Australia (same as wheel of time).

    If you liked squid game then I would recommend Alice in Borderland. A lot more in depth and clues throughout the very first scenes. As the name suggests there are some links to Alice in Wonderland. Try and work out who is who and what the heck is going on.

    Foundation - Classic scifi by Issac Asimov. It's on Apple.


    Wheel of Time - Another much loved scifi from the 90s by Robert Jordan. On Amazon Prime.
    I read the Foundation books when I was young. Read most of Asimov novels actually. Also read the Wheel of Time books. So can’t wait to watch the series. If you are a book reader Brad grab ‘The Magician’ by Raymond E Feist. It is thick and can be a little slow but once you get involved you will love it. There are about 15 books in the series. I have read them all….twice.

    Oh..I rate The Magician series way more than Wheel of Time. Still loved Wheel of Time though.

    Thanks for that Shamus I’ve been looking for something different. Wheel of Time a classic series. If you want something contemporary fantasy from a particularly popular Chinese writer (translation pretty good) look for the Three Bodies Problem trilogy (Cixin Liu).

    Thanks so much for the recommendations. I'll definitely get onto them as soon as I finish my latest Ice and Fire readthrough. I'm up to the last (current) book.

    I'm now watching Aliens. What an amazing movie. A few years ago I saw it at the cinema and I was blown away to see it on the scale. I even saw new details that I have never seen before. And I've seen the movie countless times.

    In desperation I have nearly finished watching The Outpost. Jessica Green and an A Grade plot carry a C Grade production.

    Big fan of the Magician when I was young. I read all of the books and really enjoyed them.
    Also the wheel of time was good but I’m not a fan of the trailer. It seems very teenager if that’s a thing.
    Dune is an incredible book and i have been hoping they do it justice.
    Alien was freaking scary and is one of the best monsters in a sci fi movie

    Just downloaded and watched Dune 2021 and enjoyed it, had forgotten the plot because I read the book half a century ago. Opens on the big screen next week so will watch again.
