    Films with one set.

    Bar a few seconds at the end, Circle is in one room. On the ultra low budget sci-fi theme, Circle is set in a single room (bar a few seconds at the end). It's 'interesting' rather than 'good' though.
  2. Absolutely. That's why I choose to walk around everywhere with one eye shut.

    Shaft (2019)

    Everyone should watch that trailer whilst repeating "Samuel L Jackson is 70 years old".

    Polar (Netflix Film) - Mads Mikkelsen

    I don't understand the calls for this to be more tonally consistent, or dialed down a bit. It only works on its sleazy, trashy excess. It wants you to feel uncomfortable by having a boner whilst seeing some nasty violence. It purposely enforces the male gaze then immediately holds up the mirror of the inherent damage that can do to women. It wants you to get hyped up for some over the top violence and then takes it to an extreme and asks you 'is this what you want?'. It wants you cheer on the cool hitman, then holds up the damage that brutal murder does to all the people involved. The film wants you to feel grubby and it's proud to be trash.

    Ghost in the Shell (2017)

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    That's the last one I got too. I'll let you where it isn't. I was certain it was in one particular area and spent way too long searching it. It's not there. Glad I could help.

    Best one hit wonder of all time

    If you want some more extravagantly arranged, feel good pop from M&B, look no further than this little beauty which had moderate chart success.

    Polar (Netflix Film) - Mads Mikkelsen

    I concur with Zok on this one. Also, I'd read the negative comments about Matt Lucas beforehand and expected him to be full on Little Britain mode, but he played it a couple notches lower down the dial than Tom Hardy often does, and it worked for me.

    Coffee

    I picked up a limited edition Peruvian single origin from M&S yesterday. A bit more depth than some single origins I've had recently, with slightly caramel after notes. Definitely one you can drink a few of over the day. I went with a medium grind, in a cafetiére, and a pour over and they both came out well.

    Now TV

    There's the options to turn on subtitles for PS4 but they're not available on other sources such as PC or casting, which is weird in this day and age of accessibility.

    Have you ever found a game too hard?

    I can't really do anything that requires precise timing/coordination so I find most fighting games and non-arcade racers too difficult. That said, I have finished Dark Souls and Bloodborne because they reward a slower more considered play style. Attacks are well telegraphed so you have a reasonable amount of time to dodge and parry.

    The whole thing is good.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    I think you'd be fine to watch this as a stand alone piece. It's essentially a stunt show with each scene having it's own rocket powered momentum, which is at the cost of the overriding plot, themes and character motivations. This isn't a critism of the film, as it's a deliberate choice by the director. He wanted to make a rollercoaster ride and it's very successful at what it sets out to do.
