  1. Mike low-key looks more like Michael Myers than Michael Myers.
  2. All the whizzbangery of a PS5 and sometime in the near future I’ll happily put 300+ hours into this.
  3. Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin - 2/5 It’s a Paranormal Activity film.
  4. Trailer made me pine for a National Treasure 3.
  5. South of Heaven - 2/5 (screener) Jason Sudeikis-led crime drama. While he’s charming enough, he never feels quite right in the role. The film sort of meanders for two hours without really ever being anything other than passable. The Deep House - 2/5 (screener) Half-decent idea (spooky house only accessible by using scuba gear) that’s never really scary. Also let down by a half-arsed lead actor. Wanted to like it more but at least it’s only 82 minutes long so never outstays it’s welcome. Die in a Gunfight - 1/5 (screener) Tiresome. Watched the last half hour on x1.5 and it still felt too long. A few flourishes that might have been more engaging had any of the characters been likeable. Thought this kind of Tarantino-lite shite went out of fashion two decades ago. (all screeners as listed, but think South of Heaven is already on PVOD; not sure when the other two are)
  6. Honestly, I’m quite into them rehashing icons of horror in increasingly wacky and extraordinary ways.
  7. I’m still completely baffled and bemused by this complete trainwreck. At times it felt experimental, or like the horror version of the rumours Tom Green made Freddie Got Fingered as an elaborate satire no one else was in on. Any film being completed is a minor miracle of egos aligning to produce something (semi) coherent but I just can’t fathom how a sane person signed off on this with any level of satisfaction. It’s utterly batshit, with about a dozen shifts in tone, none of which really work besides maybe the flashback and even that doesn’t really make much sense. Can’t say I was bored though, which is something? What an incredible film.
  8. Halloween Kills - 2/5 Schlockier than a b-movie monster movie marathon at the Prince Charles Cinema. I didn’t hate it, even though it’s utter rubbish. A proper bizarro lurch between comedy and gore (so, so much gore) that at least is never boring. Nothing really works, nothing really makes any sense. What a complete madness.
  9. Christ. The UFC card looks like the organisation only remembered they had to put a card on three days ago. Will probably have 10 KOs and two FOTY contenders.
  10. I picked one up over the summer from Smyth’s. Worth dropping in and asking if they have a pre-order list, which is what I did. It was £20 deposit, with that taken off the final purchase. Wait was around three weeks from signing up to stock arriving. The chap behind the till said they were doing in store only sales with a proportion of stock, hopefully that’s still the case and some on here will be able to get themselves a PS5
  11. Sony put Venom in the Halloween window, which turned out alright for them in the States at least. But yeah, reviews dropping over a month before release feels odd. It wasn’t NDAed when we saw it, unlike [redacted]
  12. Played about three hours, now off the first island (secret ending ) and… I like it. Definitely more now than the first few missions where the computer-controlled allies kept getting in the way. It’s none more Far Cry but that’s pretty much what I signed up for having enjoyed 4 and 5. Like those reckon I’ll get 50-60 hours out of it and that’ll do fine. Keen to try the co-op if anyone’s on PS5. I generally play on mute, so don’t worry about making small talk innit.
  13. Thursdays episode was the first episode I’ve not finished. That copy Alex task was utter, utter shite, made worse by the irritating music. As others have said, there’s hardly any variance to the outcomes of tasks this series, compounded by the cast not being particularly spontaneously funny so far (think the lack of a crowd contributes to this, the studio bits feel pretty flat) Other than that, enjoying it.
  14. Having seen it, and thoroughly enjoyed it, those reviews sound about right. Sure that some really won’t like the schmaltz, but I found the film to be incredible warm-hearted and fun.
