    So she just gave her consent.

    Venom (2018) - Boring. Silly. Funny.

    I thought this was great fun. I watched with my wife and daughter - they decided Venom was a metaphor for having your period which made it all the funnier.

    Nintendo Switch

    Yeah give the JoyCons a proper go before getting Pro Controller. They are amazing if you get the hang of them. They just sort of disappear and you play via mind control.
  5. I notice it at the cinema too.
  6. It's hardly a choice the director made. There's no choice - it's 24fps or nothing.
  7. There were lots of negative reactions to the 48 fps Hobbit which was genuine extra frames and was directors intent. People just object to something that looks strange and reminds them of video. That does not make it objectively worse. More frames per second are much better IMO. Any yes it's an opinion not an objective truth either way. It might be decades of coding videogames but 24fps films often do look jerky to me. In particular when the camera pans or during action scenes. 3D films made this even worse where any fast action just turned into a mess. The Hobbit pretty much fixed that with the higher framerate.

    They really are on top form. You'd expect older comedians to be trading a little on past glories but I honestly think they are better than ever. Bob Mortimer is one of the funniest people alive. There's a youtube video of his Would I Lie To You appearances which is just amazing.

    Doctor Who

    I stumbled across this on youtube about the 80s/90s Doctor Who knock-offs using the actual actors. I'd never heard of these before.

    Dave Perry is back...

    I don't know what a Perry Christmas involves but I don't think I'd like it.

    Brilliant again.
  12. It is a higher framerate. There are more frames per second. It's just that the extra frames are generated by a pretty convincing algorithm. It works for me.
  13. It makes sense to me because I think it looks better. I suspect it sells more TVs in the showroom too.
  14. I wish people would stop being snobby about optional settings. It's like moaning about people who like their steaks cooked through. Their choice.
  15. I like it. I don't get this fetish for low framerates.
