Doctor Who
4x33 The Faceless Ones Episode 3


Dune: The Alternative Edition Redux (1984/2012)
[#73 in 100 Films in a Year 2020]
I have seen Dune before, but only in its 137-minute theatrical cut form, and that was over 20 years ago. This fanedit restores a bunch of material from the extended TV cut, plus even more from some deleted scenes, and runs just shy of 3 hours. It doesn't fix all of the film's problems, but some of what it adds is definitely worthwhile. More info about it here.

Rambo: Last Blood (2019)
[#74 in 100 Films in a Year 2020]


Shōgun by James Clavell
Chapter 32
I knew it'd been a little while since I read any of this, but five-and-a-half months?! Oops. And it's been a long time since I was properly, regularly reading it. No wonder I had next to no idea who some of the characters were and what's going on… I'm still less than halfway through it (page 548 of 1,211), but I do want to finish it.

Oh my, this looks as good as I hoped. Let's hope it's as good as it looks.
