  1. I’ve got a PS5 so definitely don’t *need* one, but am tempted even if just for flight sim.
  2. If by some chance people get two, I'd potentially be interested in one
  3. Saw this last night (IMAX, probably 30-40 people in there so loads of room) and it was really good fun. Some of my favourite marvel films are the ones where I know nothing about the characters and story and this didn't disappoint. Really good fight scenes and more character driven than many of them. A solid 8/10 film. At a tangent, there's a lot of different films and TV series in Phase 4, and it's not so obvious how it might come together.
  4. Seaton seems to have turned a corner with some overdue redevelopment going on. There’s a nice big Tesco and housing estate behind the front, and the tramline is a big draw. Along the front there are some mixed use developments going up and other signs of life returning.
  5. Five years ago we went to Ryde on the Isle Of Wight and found a bunch of old cabs in one of the arcades. There was a very high chance that I’d used the same machines thirty years before.
  6. Yep, there is definitely a market for stand alone episodes like this, as well as the 10 episode story arc.
  7. I only read it once a few years back, and it just didn’t click for me. It was Ok, but that’s about it.
  8. Yep, same here. Not really what I want from Ted Lasso but Beard in the club(s) was good.
  9. Apple TV is the perfect subscription service to drop in and out of. There are some awesome shows but it’s not high volume so just pay five quid and rinse it for a month then stop. Come back in a few more and repeat. Ted Lasso alone is worth a fiver
  10. And for a “both great but very different”, how about The Running Man? I’d love to see the book done faithfully by HBO, but there’s a lot of fun in seeing Arnie hamming it up.
  11. Possibly the opposite to what was intended, but The Warriors and Starship Troopers are far more enjoyable than the novels they are based on.
  12. First three episodes of this are available. All the men on the planet die, apart from one chap and his pet monkey. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8042500/ I’ve not read any of the comics, so don’t know if it’s a faithful adaptation but it’s pretty good so far.
  13. That was just outstanding all the way through. Absolute genius writing and superb acting.
  14. Now on Season 2, having just endured “a night in sickbay” with the very obvious stuffed dog prop. That’s the only stinker so far, and Carbon Creek where T’Pol’s great grandmother visited earth in the 60s was great. It did have another incredibly tacky moment where she had to get changed behind a backlit sheet, though. Sad thing is, it probably did entertain a fair portion of the audience.
  15. https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/industry-news-manufacturing/chip-shortage-ford-volvo-exclude-safety-features-new-cars? Get your car faster if you do without safety features!
  16. How do stock shortages compare to the PS5 at the moment? Do you still need to be watching trackers like a hawk or are they staying available at some retailers for a while?
  17. Not so much “deserves” but “could have been done better”, Reign Of Fire. A great premise, that didn’t deliver at all.
  18. Just completed 1-3 having been slaughtered at the last stage several times. I’d got a challenge card that gave double health and it turns out I didn’t need it at all as one of the other players was a medic who kept healing us.
  19. Decided to give this a go. Will be up for PS gaming.
  20. VR motion gets me quite easily, but on "normal" games it's far less common. Occasionally I get it on "normal" games but that's quite rare. The only one that did have a consistent effect was Resident Evil Village. The slower more lumbering movement on a big screen not too far away had me feeling iffy all the time
