  1. Homeboys (1992) Cheapo straight-to-video trash from AIP cashing in on the gangster films popular at the time like Colors and Boyz N The Hood. Pretty slack in all areas, limp attempts at social commentary, predictable at every turn right down to the very last shot, literally. Not much worth bothering with here. 1/5
  2. The first one is excellent. When you read back through this thread it feels like the Touched Music Thread at times, but they're putting out that style of electronic music that you don't really see a great deal of these days. Martin is a top guy too.
  3. My sale recommendation is Titanfall 2. Been playing the single player and it is superb, shakes up the tired space marine FPS. Not sure I'd touch the MP though but I've never been a massive multiplayer type.
  4. Am I the only person who keeps stuff on their Steam wishlist purely for nostalgia? Like I have some games that have been there for years and even though my tastes have changed I somehow can't find it in me to remove them because they've been there that long.
  5. Where is this streaming because some years ago I got to the end of season 2 but when I went back to start 3 it had gone off Netflix.
  6. It's purely my opinion. There's a point where the gear stops and the music starts. Hey if he needs all that to make the music he does then fair play to him, and he's spending his hard-earned cash on what he loves doing, fair enough. Personally I don't hear all that gear in the production, simple as that.
  7. I think this should be for software too, I mean why not? So if anyone isn't aware of it already - https://vital.audio/ Basically it's a free wavetable synth similar to Serum or Pigments. You can pay and get more wavetables and presets or subscribe but the synth is free - really good idea that I'm assuming is to encourage sound-designers. But if you're old-fashioned like me and prefer to make their own sounds from scratch then there you go! It's stupidly-powerful, amazing unique features and lots of modulation.
  8. Blood Vessel (2020) Shudder Sometimes a good genre film makes up for a lack of originality with quality, and that's the case here. It's World War II and some survivors from a shipwreck come across a seemingly abandoned German ship, and end up fighting for their lives with what they find. It doesn't try to be more than it is, sticks to what it does best. Treads familiar ground and gets a tad silly towards the end but this is a quality production, entertaining, tense and gory in the right places. 3.5/5
  9. Yakuza Kiwami (PC) - was enjoying this but realised I'd not played it for a couple of weeks, fired it up and of course I've forgotten all the fighting controls and rules. Then I realised I find the fighting the least appealing part of the game, everything else is great. Random street gangs are getting on my nerves. It's a shame because the story is excellent, it looks great, the side activities and setting are compelling. Might give it a year and try again.
  10. Anyone after a new synth? Junkie XL is selling all his So I listened to some of his soundtracks and frankly they're so generic and dull I thought he was doing it all on his computer. Proof positive you can have all the gear in the world but it doesn't make you a good musician.
  11. Privates On Parade (1983) A bizarre mixture of camp musical comedy and wartime drama. Difficult to pin down, just when you think you have a handle on this post-war drama it shifts, sometimes mid-way through a dance routine. Sexuality shifts about in a similar way to the tone. You're never quite sure who feels what, then the real business of war kicks in and everything is up for grabs. I believe this was an adaptation of a stage play, but obviously I cannot compare it with that. I'm still confused as to what I've just seen, will need to see that again at some point. 2.5/5
  12. Thriller! - Thriller is a British television series, originally broadcast in the UK from 1973 to 1976.[1] It is an anthology series: each episode has a self-contained story and its own cast.[2] As the title suggests, each story is a thriller of some variety, from tales of the supernatural to down-to-earth whodunits. It's a mixed bag, some good Tales Of The Unexpected-style twisty tales, stories of the occult (popular in the 70s), all sorts really. Tons of them on Youtube too.
  13. A funkier, snappier version of this then:
  14. Yeah I caught one of these recently. I have a love/hate relationship with this sort of modular production. As someone who makes music myself I've always been fully PC-based, so seeing this different way of doing things is genuinely interesting. However I am getting modular fatigue at the moment, it feels like everyone and their dog is spending stupid amounts of money on increasingly-daft modular setups, and it's only the minority of them, Colin included, who actually do anything worthwhile with it. Generally I feel a modular backlash coming in the next couple of years, a wave of t
  15. New Mark Pritchard EP worth it for this alone:
