    Serenity - Its rare in modern cinema for a film to have a set vision and for it to wholeheartedly work towards it. Its an astonishing piece of work from a new auteur, Steven Knight who, in his elder years, has hit his triumphant peak. The man started on Jasper Carrott's laugh-vacuum sitcom The Detectives before somehow striking gold with Hardy and Locke, a film so utterly lacking in trust from its producers that they just stuck big Tom in a car on the motorway and let him have an existential crisis. Serenity has acting, it has some form of editing, it has music at points. Sometimes they shoot at night and sometimes during the day. McConaughey gets wet at times, then he screams randomly, then he gets mildly drunk on several bottles of rum. His range is magnificent. You can have your Cachés, your White Ribbons, your Troll 2s. Sit back, admire, bask in it. SOAK IN ITS LUNACY. Thank me later.

    Trials Rising

    Mate we've gotta go in hard on a track again like we did a few years back on Fusion, that was a fun battle for a few days.

    Also the Switch version is pretty shocking: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2019/02/trials_rising_on_switch_doesnt_rise_up_to_the_challenge_of_its_rivals

    Remember that feeling after a few hours with Fusion where you thought 'yeah its alright but something just feels off'? This feels like a true sequel to Evo from the get go. The handling is perfect, and fuck ups feel like your own rather than tyre glitches etc.

    It feels like a return to Evo, after the misstep that was Fusion. The aesthetic is more varied, the available lines on the tracks feel more fun and fluid, especially the speed lines, and the bikes have that flexibility and control that Evo nailed so perfectly. Still the same old shitty skill games, but there's new challenges with better rewards etc. I'm not aware if its a new engine or not, but it felt dated on Fusion so they've either got rid of some bloat for this or it is a brand new engine as its a big step-up graphically in places. There's a certain track that is very visually impressive.

    Just put in a couple hours, all Golds, a couple Platinums and one top 30 global score. Some different tracks to the closed beta and its absolutely fucking glorious. Plats are harder to get it would appear and then the Titanium medals above 'em are where the real bastard test is.

    Slay the Spire - Roguelike Card-em-up

    Heart beaten (Asc 1) with Ironclad. Bare STR build. Feed+ giving me 124 health by that point, even after taking Apparitions. Inflame+ and 3 x Limit Break+ with a small deck, along with the relic that lets you play status cards so I could get rid of them as soon as they appeared (kicking Dead Branch into gear). Fucking decimated the prick, 208 dmg on the last card I played. I now have Ironclad on Asc 6, Silent on Asc 3 and Defect on Asc 5. Love this game so much.

    Border: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5501104/ A female customs officer with the capability to smell fear becomes intrigued by an odd fellow whilst her every day work leads her down a dark path. Its a highly original film, allowed to breathe by the director and cinematographer. Eva Melander's performance is extraordinary, completely morphed by prosthetics and carry an Ungodly weight on her shoulders. Don't watch a trailer, don't read any reviews. Its unlike anything you've seen before. On a side-note, I've now watched five outstanding, completely different films in a row and it reiterates just how much I love this medium.
