    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    Yeah, I agree. At least, the forty five minutes I managed were spectacularly dull. I turned it off after that.

    He's certainly too good for Waypoint. I've just had to turn their Endgame spoiler cast off because I'm finding it so infuriating. I definitely find that I'm not enjoying any of their podcasts that Austin isn't on. I'll probably unsubscribe from Waypoint Radio and only listen even more occasionally than I already do. Enjoyed GB East doing GTA online last night!
  3. I must have missed that. What was it?

    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    I don't find her tone derogatory at all with that stuff. It comes across as self deprecating/self mocking to me. She was at the Star Wars event, she's talking about enjoying board games, she's into Lego(s), dating games, visual novels, she's mental for awful Nancy Drew games. She's a nerd too, and she knows it. The thing I don't like about her is that she's awful at engaging with things she isn't interested in, as her dismissive 'soldiers' MK comment illustrates. Dan has got loads better at trying new stuff lately, but he's always been willing for people to talk about stuff he didn't care about. Abby goes so silent you can hear her disinterest, or if she does engage she doesn't know how to get her point across. She wasn't good at arguing in GOTY deliberations, for example. But for me, most of the best stuff that's come out of the site since her and Ben joined has either been her idea or featured her heavily. 13 Deadly Sims, Fright or Shite, Million Dollar Abby and more. I'd happily watch her over anything featuring Brad and Jason, who I find immensely dull.

    I think that's unfair. She's not being derogatory about 'nerds' in that anecdote. They're talking about being recognised, and she mentions that at places such as the Star Wars event, she gets recognised more than at other places. She wasn't looking down on them at all, simply stating a fact. I feel like there's a big anti Abby and Ben bias in this thread and anything they do or say gets spun into a negative whether it deserves it or not. They're not my favourite members of giant bomb by any stretch but the constant vitriol they receive in here really isn't justified.

    Deadwood Film - 1st June Sky Atlantic

    I genuinely don't think I've ever been as hyped for a movie as I am for this. I mean, Avengers was great, but at no point did anyone say that Thanos was honoring the rigors of his putrid fucking nature, so... I really really REALLY wish this was getting a cinema release.

    Tombstone - The Western Film Genre

    The Searchers is brilliant. If you haven't watched it, you're doing Westerns wrong. Jeremiah Johnson is great too. I enjoyed Dead Man with Johnny Depp, but it's an odd one. Open Range is okay.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    My least favourite movie ever is probably The Sound of Music. I hate everything about it. Even catching five seconds of it when flicking through channels is enough to put me in a foul mood. I really don't know why. There are thousands of movies that are objectively worse. I can't even say much bad about it. The acting's fine, the singing is fine, the songs are classics... And yet I would cheerfully destroy the world if I could, just to ensure I never had to accidentally catch another glimpse of it ever again. If you gave me a choice of watching it once, or having to watch Prometheus - a film which I found offensive in how much contempt it had for its audience in expecting them to suspend disbelief for a single second of that tripe - every single day for the rest of my life, I'd choose Prometheus in a heartbeat.

    Which classics have you still not seen?

    Watch Apocalypse Now. Don't do anything else until you have.

    Just when I'm starting to feel like the Cowboys won't fuck up their season with inexplicably shit performances! Still, Play-offs are looking like a possibility if they don't fall apart again against the Bucs.

    You missed out the most important part. Alan Arkin co-stars!

    Just watched Batman Ninja. It's utter, utter shit. Both by the standards of Batman stories and anime. Looks really nice, and the animation is good, but the story is appalling nonsense. I wasn't expecting Shakespeare or anything, but it's just gibberish.
