  1. Smile - 3/5 Creepy, more than competent trauma horror marred by an over-reliance on jump scares.
  2. Don’t Worry Darling - 1/5 Florence Pugh is the best thing about it by far and Harry Styles is far from the worst thing about it.
  3. As I recall, it had received largely glowing reviews from the European press, but once it hit the states, there were all manner of wild assertions that it was going to prompt legions of disaffected men to go on killing sprees. It was all a bit odd really.
  4. It’s also apparently a musical. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-news/joker-2-lady-gaga-joaquin-phoenix-todd-phillips-in-musical-1235154135/amp/
  5. Could be but Another thing, regarding Batman and Gordon attempting to solve one of the riddles: Honestly though, I think it did plenty right, and showed a world that a superior sequel could really run with.
  6. I liked it. At times I liked it a great deal…but thought it was heavily flawed. I was *really* into it for the first 90 minutes or so, but I felt it didn’t quite come together as well as it might have done. Additionally, for all the hype about Batman’s detective work, that aspect was definitely less interesting that I’d hoped it would be. I had issues with the ending too. Now, if I’ve missed something I’ll welcome corrections but…
  7. Horrible news. His COVID story was awful. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/dec/20/this-thing-was-trying-to-dismantle-me-mark-lanegan-on-nearly-dying-of-covid
  8. As has already been said, relatively speaking, they’re *far* more powerful & comparable to decent PC hardware then the PS4 / One were at the time of release. I suspect COVID has resulted in more games than usual being cross-gen, but once the new consoles are something approaching the sole focus, we’ll see a lot more from them. Under the circumstances, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see this gen span 8-10 years without a ‘Pro’ refresh.
  9. Really sad. He was a constant on-set presence on Ghostbusters: Afterlife and it was clear how close he and Jason were. https://amp.theguardian.com/film/2021/nov/19/who-ya-gonna-call-ivan-jason-reitman-ghostbusters-hadley-freeman-film
  10. It's a curious one, that's for sure. Either ZeniMax was an incredible bargain, or on a superficial level, it looks like Sony have wildly overpaid for Bungie.
  11. The Tragedy of Macbeth went up yesterday and I thought it was beautiful - Shakespeare noir via German Expressionism. Let's have more of the Coens doing stuff independently of each other if this is anything to go by, please.
  12. That is sure to increase the likelihood of Hamilton staying in F1.
  13. I have a suspicion Russell will be told in no uncertain terms he isn’t winning the next title (assuming the car is definitely title material) and that he can look forward to being their #1 driver in a year or two.
  14. Therefore I’d say he’s not really a worthy winner. It would be like the ridiculously high quality Liverpool / Man City title race in 2018/19 being determined by the Premier League deciding with 15 minutes to play that the next team to score in their match gets 5 points for the win.
  15. Maybe the end game is to go full Sports Entertainment. In which case I want words like “racing” and “pitstop” banned and replaced by “high velocity duelling” and “a trip to the technical facility”.
  16. I bet there are a fair few still active in the organisation who feel that way, and for various reasons. I reckon there are plenty of other drivers who could take the record and not be met with similar objections, if you take my meaning. In the event of more shenanigans next year, Hamilton should retire and mention at every possible opportunity that he’s the most successful driver in F1 history.
  17. Nah, that's fucking weak. You'd have to adapt it on the fly - if one team is ahead by five, next goal is worth six. It's the only way to keep people watching!
  18. Now that the pretence has been shed, they should look to Hollywood for future race directors. I'm all for George Miller getting first bite.
  19. Violet Ramis Stiel (Harold’s daughter) on Ghostbusters: Afterlife - https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-features/ghostbusters-afterlife-harold-ramis-daughter-violet-movie-1235044849/
  20. Regarding one of your spoilered points,
  21. Looks like it’s set to do better even than yesterday’s estimate in the US: https://deadline.com/2021/11/ghostbusters-afterlife-opening-weekend-1234877444/
  22. Jason Reitman on GBII, spoilered due to Afterlife references:
