    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    Mass Alex (what it should have been called) is the best content they've done in a while. Really enjoying it.
  3. Perhaps the wrong forum for this, but anybody else been to see it yet? It's objectively complete trash, but at the same time, I saw it last night with my partner and had the most fun I've had at the cinema all year. It may have been helped by a few beers and going to a packed 9pm screening, but the whole audience was laughing, singing along, and burst into applause at the end of the film. In these dark, depressing times, who wouldn't be up for watching a film where some famous people sing and dance through beautiful sets and scenery whilst singing along to some of the best pop songs ever written. It's so camp it's great. Also, the ending leverages this stunning lesser-known Abba song to great effect: I expect I'll get a few snobbish replies saying that it's trash, but to those people, I think this piece by the Onion says it best: Anybody else seen it? It's absolutely a film that you need to see with an audience too.

    When Hally met Sally.

    What do you think of its sexual politics in 2018? The whole message of the film (men and women can't be friends) is pretty problematic I think - and the whole film is distorted by the ending. I know ultimately we are supposed to be empathising with Sally, but then the film throws that all away at the end. Harry is a prick, and the film vindicates all of his arguments around male/female friendship, even though we know (and deep down I think the film knows) they're wrong. It's interesting that the original ending was more true to life, and that they remained friends, but they had to bow to expectations of genre and essentially made the message of the film "men and women can't be friends", which is clearly bullshit.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    Just finished Hearts of Stone. My god, what a fantastic piece of DLC. Gaunter O'Dimm is the best villain in a video game. Such a tour de force, particularly when I thought the Wild Hunt never really lived up to the premise. This scene was a masterpiece:

    Game piracy in 2018

    This argument is as flimsy as a soggy piece of toilet roll.

    Fodmap

    My girlfriend is on this (and has been for several months), and it's doable. Have you downloaded the fodmap app? It's paid (like £4 I think): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=me.foodmaestro.fodmapapp&hl=en_GB It comes with a barcode scanner which lets you scan products in the supermarket and it'll tell you whether they are low FODMAP or not. Essentially, anything with onion and garlic is out, which is pretty much all processed foods, bar the odd thing here and there. If you're wife is after low FODMAP snacks, these are good: https://www.graze.com/uk/shop/lemon-and-blueberry-superfood-bites Can be found in most supermarkets, and they're healthy. Avoid the other flavours, most aren't low fodmap.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    It wasn't arrogance, it was hope. I don't even like football and I can see that. You could have easily called us arrogant during the "golden generation", but that doesn't really fly in 2018.

    Most impressive use of limited hardware.

    This blew my mind when I first booted it up:

    Monthly Release Dates - July 2018

    As somebody with pretty much zero interest in Train simulators, that trailer and this: Have actually made me consider checking it out. They've done a great job with the graphics at least.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    I finished this but never played the DLC, and I can see it's in the steam sale. You've all convinced me, time to dive back in!
