The TV series Taboo continues to intrigue me. It’s relentlessly dreary, but beautifully acted and lavishly produced. It’s a great period-piece melodrama. There’s always something grungy and vile going on between assorted miscreants bent on doing each other harm. A monotonic Tom Hardy is the antihero who comes out of nowhere to seek revenge.
I saw London Has Fallen. London is attacked by hundreds of well-armed terrorists who want to kidnap the US president. The terrorists are all over London, and only Secret Service Agent Gerard Butler can save the day. But can he? Butler wastes terrorists by the boatload. Huge bodycount in this action thriller. It’s not up there with the Bourne movies in terms of quality because the main character isn’t as interesting as Bourne, but it’s entertaining, though implausible. Is London that poorly defended?
The audiobook edition of Bryan Cassiday’s noir thriller Countdown to Death should be available for purchase some time in March. The narrator is D. G. Chichester, who also did Zombie Maelstrom and Two Moons Rising.
I’ve been watching Narcos on Netflix. It seems a little long, but overall it’s fascinating how coke kingpin Pablo Escobar held Colombia in thrall as he alternately fought or bribed the government so he could continue his illegal enterprise and make billions of dollars. It’s interesting to watch how the Colombian government tries to deal with this billionaire bloodthirsty gangster. You never know when he’s going to erupt into violence. One day he’s your ally, the next he’s your executioner. And he has no compunction about assassinating politicians.
