    Awful decision.

    The Meg - Jason Statham vs Giant Shark

    Same. I can't see the Stath as Jonas Taylor, I think it will be good though. The books are fab.

    Conte sacked by Chelsea - I'd forgotten he was still there. Sarri in next.

    Last night was made for Wilshire I think. Easily Englands most creative and technical midfielder, he would have thrived in that relatively slow-paced midfield. I think Southgate made a real mistake not bringing him but I understand why he didn't.

    Barry - Bill Hader, HBO Hitman Comedy

    I watched this last week and thought it was great - got a Breaking Bad vibe from it. The plot was nicely twisty and I liked that his actions had consequences.
  8. Wasn't there also someone who completed Halo without realising that you can crouch? They had cheesed the training level on the Pillar and got past the crouch bit without noticing it - I think it was clicking the left stick so it could be done without noticing. So they never hid behind terrain or behind crates etc later on.

    How many headers had they won in the 90 though. You've got to play the numbers and get to extra time.

    The Endless https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3986820/ Two brothers return to the cult they fled from years ago to discover that the group's beliefs may be more sane than they once thought. I saw a trailer for this ages ago and thought it looked good. But I totally forgot about it until the reviews on websites and in the papers this weekend so I got it on Apple Movies. Two brothers are working as cleaners, not making much money, living off noodles and not really having a good time in life. Several years earlier they fled a 'UFO death cult' but since then things have not been great for them. One morning they get a video tape in the post from their old cult, it shows the members seemingly in good health and not the 'death cult' the older brother told his younger brother they fled from. The younger brother convinces his older sibling they need to visit their old to try and put the past to bed. And so they can move on with their lives. They travel out to the wilderness and meet up with the cult members but everything seems fine. The members are happy, people support each other and they've all the food and beer they could want. But there is some weirdness happening here and over the two hours of the film it's slowly revealed. This was really fantastic. The two leads are fine actors, it's nicely filmed with some lovely American landscape shots. It's a slow burn, ideas led horror/sci-fi with it's own nasty, internal logic. Heavy Lovecraft vibes (the film opens with a quote from HP himself) but with plenty of original ideas. I think the whole thing would fall apart if you sat down and analysed it. But it's so good you can forgive some plot-holes or logic-fails Recommended for horror or sci-fi fans. And I'm excited to see what the writer/director team does next. 4/5

    Denmark should have had a player sent off and Croatia should have retaken their penalty.
