  1. We said they actually got the episodes made in a year as usual, it just took another year to do the title sequence!
  2. The way he threw away everything set up in TFA was what left me really disappointed in TLJ on first viewing, although subsequent watches without expectations getting shat all over let me see it was actually a bloody good movie once you were past that.

    I’ve learnt I have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the time I’ve been watching, but know feck all about the past!

    Karl Pilkington is Sick Of It

    I watched the first episode but didn’t get any further. I’d almost say it’s like he’s playing his character from Derek transplanted to a new situation (and with a haircut), but he doesn’t quite work as the main focus rather than someone who pops up occasionally, and/or without Gervaises writing talents.
  5. Well, it made me think it would lessen the experience of the final Avengers if I didn’t see this first; at a minimum you’d be expected to know who she was, what she could do and where she’d been, with the potential for any degree of tie in and set-up beyond that (this could have been Captain Marvel vs Young Thanos!).
  6. If you went and watched Ant-Man you discovered at the end that it had a link (and one which could just be a way of keeping him out of it entirely!), but Infinity War basically told you (assuming you weren’t one of the rare few who didn’t Google “What the symbol on Nick Fury’s pager?”) that this brand new (to the movies) character Captain Marvel is going to play a major role in the final film. I mean I’d have watched it regardless, but felt it was clearly positioned as “this must be seen before watching the final Avengers movie” in a way AM&tW certainly wasn’t.

    I think it’s generally held that people start losing a tiny bit of reaction time in their early 30s, so in such a high speed sport as F1 he’d have definitely been past his best when driving for Mercedes in his early 40s.

    Button’s still racing (Super GT in Japan and also the World Endurance Championship), which based on a quick look means six clashes with F1 (including last weekend).

    No idea if it’s any good, but Kimi’s authorised biography is 99p on today’s Kindle Daily Deal. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kimi-Raikkonen-Kari-Hotakainen-ebook/dp/B07CMTLXPZ/ref=lp_5400977031_1_3?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1552974551&sr=1-3

    I wonder why they let Bottas win by such a huge margin? I don’t mean in a “should have swapped with Hamilton” way, but that it seemed strange to keep building and building such a massive gap when saving engines etc for later in the season is such as big part of the long game these days. I assumed him and Hamilton must be on different strategies and they were planning to pit him again whilst Hamilton was nursing tyres to the end, hence the need to get him a pit stop ahead. I’m surprised he wasn’t getting told to slow down and reduce the gap to a few seconds, knowing the extra speed was there in the event it was needed.

    Yes. Ferrari must know they’ve easily got more pace in hand than Mercedes have shown (although Merc won’t be going at full speed yet either), or they’d have been pushed into going flat out themselves and it would have been much closer in P2.

    The Alan Partridge Thread

    To me it also seems like it should be Alan struggling with the tech rather than him, if they’re going to do that joke at all. I’d previously thought he came across as smart but downtrodden, but he just seems like an idiot in this.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    Indeed. There is a certain degree of relativity to it. If I see something made by nobody with a 20p budget I won’t judge it as harshly as something where a director who’s made good stuff in the past has spent $50m and still turned out a total turd. The later has fallen far further short of the potential the movie had.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    Domino (a Tony Scott film starring Keira Knightley). To me it just seemed like it wanted to be a Tarantino movie where every character just is as cool as fuck, but failed miserably at capturing the vibe because every character was clearly trying desperately hard to be cool as fuck with every single line and movement, and so coming across as deeply uncool as a result.
