Daredevil

I’ve finally seen all of Daredevil, the first of Marvel’s (current) 5 Netflix shows. So here’s a quick rundown of what I thought of all 13 episodes. TL;DR version? I liked it, but I didn’t love it.

Eddie Redmayne & Felicity Jones star as Stephen Hawking and his wife Jane and how they met in University.  Until this moment I hadn’t heard about this movie, or known much about Hawking’s life before the Hawking we all think of today.  It’s being released in the US on November 7th.  I’m putting it at a dark horse Oscar contender for best actor.

Also starring David Thewlis (Harry Potter), Emily Watson (Punch-Drunk Love), Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) & Harry Lloyd (Game of Thrones).
