  1. No Toni Colette. Not a surprise really but still a big omission.

    Ornstein confirming Bellerin out for 6-9 months. What a season this is for injuries with Welbeck, Holding and now Hec.
  3. The bits at the end when they’re phone scamming people from the Fyre mailing list and recording themselves doing it while on bail.... for fucks sake. How did these people think they would get away with it? Such a great documentary.

    Good new horror films

    I downloaded this over the weekend - I will buy it when it's out. It's pretty good with an original setup with a nice twist around halfway through. I'd recommended it for anyone super into zombie movies because it was an interesting slant on the standard z stuff. I'd avoid reviews if possible because they all give away the twist.

    Hell in The Pacific https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063056/ During World War II, an American pilot and a marooned Japanese navy captain are deserted on a small uninhabited island in the Pacific Ocean. There, they must cease their hostility and cooperate if they want to survive, but will they? Lee Marvin and Toshiro Mifune are soldiers, American and Japanese, washed up on a deserted Island during WW2. Once they become aware of each other they immediately try to kill each other in a little microcosm of the war they’re cut off from. They soon realise the futility of this and start to cooperate in a limited fashion. Working together to survive and maybe try to escape. This was a decent enough film that didn’t fully work for me. The performances from the only two actors in it are very strong and the location filming is beautiful. But the whole thing feels rushed or something. I never got a sense of what their lives on the Island were like. Other films with a similar setup, like Castaway, gave a proper idea of what the stranded person went through. There’s almost no dialogue for most of the run time. It’s directed well enough by John Boorman who made it straight after Point Blank, another great Lee Marvin film. But it’s not one of Boorman or Marvins best. And there’s a great Lalo Schifrin soundtrack consisted of mad jazz workouts and deranged Phantom of The Opera style organ solos. The downbeat ending feel quite apt. 3/5

    Your shameful gaming secrets

    You could pause SFII as Chun-Li was doing some move where she was upside down for a second and you could see her knickers - got a bit of mileage out of that. The things we did pre-internet.

    Sport Documentaries

    I see the Senna documentary has gone up on Netflix. Even if you've no interest in motor sport, and I don't, this is a great watch.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    It's worth reading the Reddit thread on the press conference where he explains why he does it. There's a few interesting quotes: I get the vibe that he's quite an anxious person and this standard of work before a match helps ease this anxiety. If they lose he knows there was nothing else that could have been done. That's my internet psychologist 2 cents.

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    Nah, Wales had a proper world class talent with Bale and a top 4 PL player in Ramsey. Not saying what Coleman did with them wasn't impressive but he had at least those two to build on. At Sunderland he had nothing but he went in with his eyes open. And at the time I remember everyone saying he was nuts to take that job because no matter how bad things were they could always get worse.

    Have you ever completely mastered a game?

    I was pretty much unbeatable on the SNES Mario Kart. I could nail the fast start every time and hit the Ghost Valley shortcut if I had a feather or mushroom. Gold on all tracks with all characters. Good times.
