  3. Let's have 'em, the infuriating bits in movies and TV shows that really f**k you off. Those little moments where the suspension of disbelief comes crashing to the floor, the plot goes to crap, there's an acting malfunction, the VFX are a letdown, or that "clever" twist makes you feel like you've been kicked in the sensitives by Mister Deus ex Machina. Here's one to start things off. It sprang to mind unbidden for some reason today, but it annoyed me even though it was quite a while since I last watched the movie it's from... Tomorrow Never Dies - the helicopter chase. I appreciate that Bond movies stretch the limits, but surely at least one person in the production team must've raised the point that this is just f**king stupid? After a motorcycle chase through building seemingly made of matchsticks, Bond and Wai-Lin are pursued by a helicopterbut get stuck in a crowd of pedestrians who hamper their progress. The pilot of the helicopter is laden with bad guys armed with fully automatic weapons decides the best option is to tilt the helicopter forward in a physics-defying maneouvre to attempt to chop up the heroes (and presumably many pedestrians) with the spinning rotors. Instead of instantly pitching the aircraft into the floor, shattering the rotor-blades, and dumping the crew to the ground in a fireball, the helicopter moves slowly forward at an impossible angle. But bond escapes into (Oh no!) a dead end. Forced back out into the street he sees the helicopter still waiting, still hovering at a bizarre angle, unmoving thanks, I assume, to some sort of anti-gravity tech that evil baddie Elliot Carver must have invented. Bond and Wai-Lin do a stunt, sliding under the rotors and throwing some handy bunting up into the helicopter tail rotor causing it to lose control, crash into a building, and explode. It disgusts me (although it's redeemed slightly by the brief cut at the end where you can see the helicopter is filled with manequins before it blows up). Let 'em roll...
  4. I knew the words quite early, got complacent, and then made a bunch of stupid moves (partially because I was watching TV at the same time instead of concentrating). #waffle371 3/5 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 🟩⭐🟩⬜🟩 🟩🟩⭐🟩🟩 🟩⬜🟩⭐🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 🔥 streak: 61 🥇 #wafflegoldteam wafflegame.net

  8. I tried switching subtitles on manually too, but all that happened was that we got subtitles for the English bits IIRC. It was the latest season of Mayans, so quite recent to D+.
  9. It's hit and miss too - we were watching Mayans MC the other week and a whole section of Spanish dialogue had no subtitles. In the following episode, the same characters had their dialogue subtitled!

  20. I always felt that the arcades / videogames companies made a mistake when they got into the brinksmanship game with home consoles. The arcade went from a place where a couple of quid would get you ten or twenty credits, to giving you just a couple. The new games might have had flashy cabinets and great graphics, but the £1-a-go games were still arcade games and would eat your money just as fast as the 10/20p games did. The whole experience was effectively hit by massive inflation. And while you could play arcade perfect titles on home consoles, the arcade has that social aspect and atmosphere in the same way that going to a pub, or eating at a restaurant does. You can drink and eat at home, but sometimes it's fun to go out. I think that there would still be a healthy market for simpler, cheaper to produce games that were priced accordingly for the players. There's a lot more appeal in knowing that a fiver wil get you a couple of dozen plays on a whole bunch of machines if you like than knowing there's a good chance that you'll be spent up in a few minutes.

  23. Where can I watch Alan: Coving Ant? I hope it's a new Alan Partridge movie! The bit with the flute that I liked was the way that David curls up like a dead spider when attacked. I thought that was a striking image.
