  1. It's brilliant but of course not all seasons are on there without paying for an extra channel...
  2. Ooh Babylon (1980) is on there at the moment, a wonderful film about the dub/reggae scene in London, I know what I'll be watching over the weekend. Jah!
  3. So he's not remaking the Caitlin Moran C4 sitcom then, which was pretty good actually.
  4. Wow well done, I must have tried over a hundred times
  5. Well done dude I think it may be beyond me but I will continue to attempt them on lethal.
  6. Just bought this again on Prime, I think it's my favourite show of anything ever, I never thought The Wire would be topped but it has been. God it 's so great! EDIT: apologies for drunk rambling, The Wire is still king, Atlanta is fucking great though.
  7. Has anyone managed to (act 2 spoiler)
  8. I freaking love Beavertown beer. For 35 years I thought beer wasn't for me but then a friend gave me a Stone Go GTo IPA when we ran out of gin and oh my god hoppy beer is insanely lovely! Fast forward five years and after trying the various IPA's you get in supermarkets I have to say Beavertown if fucking rad, I love Neck Oil, I love the Blood Orange, and Lupuloid oh wow. Is there any better commercial beer makers out there?

    That's a very good point I didn't consider that and yeah that first montage with the Dylon tune is probably the best bit of the film.

    I used to think it was good, then these past couple of weeks I've been reading the graphic novel and last Friday decided to watch the film again as it's on Prime and holy fuck I now see what was so bad about it. Whilst it takes all the scenes from the novel (apart form some notable changes) the way it's presented is so unoriginal, like the Director had no vision of his own and just rips off other movies. I mean showing The Comedian killing in Vietnam to Ride of The Valkyries being one of the most obvious cliche rip offs, but yes also the lame slow mo ultra violence and shagging, the whole thing just felt completely tonally off compared to the tone of the novel which had this almost melancholic romantic tone along with the hard boiled noir elements of Rorsach's scenes. The TV Series got the tone far better I thought. I won't lie I was gutted, I couldn't even finish the last half hour and this was a film that years ago I really enjoyed, I guess reading the source material ruined it for me. I'd love to see a remake by either Lindlelof or someone like Villeneuve though I doubt that will happen seeing as it's already been done and that's why it feels like a missed opportunity.
  11. Nail on head here, it's a very difficult thing to tell people, especially people you have just met/have an attraction to.
  12. Calm down, @Papaya Dance is merely saying the interaction between them is more grey than accusing Kwame of being a predator, if anyone hasn't understood the that it's you by being so didactic and aggressive with your opinions. You seem to see this as such a black and white moral conundrum but it isn't, as many have mentioned here sexuality is a very fluid thing and defining yourself as one thing doesn't mean you can't in the future be another, I speak of this from experience so your aggressive shouting down of @Papaya Dance for trying to explain that is rude and comes across as someone who perhaps hasn't ever had to think in these terms. Sexuality isn't fixed like marriage, I'm pretty sure Michaela Cole was on Kwames side when she wrote this as it's the girl who come across as the total arsehole by the end of that storyline. I hope you take some time to reflect on what is being discussed and your responses to @Papaya Dance as that's the only reason I made this post.
  13. I personally think RDR2 is the best looking game I’ve played, the lighting in that game is unreal I’m amazed how good it looks on my tv. This comes close but is still not as good, the lighting seems flatter, more artificial and those crushed blacks. It’s beautiful don’t get me wrong but RDR2 seems to me on another level, I can’t be the only one thinking that? Or do I need to adjust some settings on my tv for this to reach those heights? Ghost is way more fun though, loving the combat, kind of hoping get to use another weapon other than a katana but like Sekiro I doubt that will happen. Edit: On console of course...
  14. Noted, thanks! Added that too, why not
  15. Thanks guys, ordered V for Vendetta for now
  16. Is there any graphic novel out there in a similar vein to Watchmen? I love that it makes references to lots of 20th century art, culture and philosophy, I'm more into that then stories about super heroes. Any recommendations gladly received.
  17. Hard really isn't much of a challenge on this, they got the difficulty a bit wrong I feel but the lethal mode has made that much better.
  18. They don't need to be staggered or out of breath you just need to space correctly, so if a shield guy is rushing you take a couple of steps back from where you were when he started his charge and hold triangle, when you release he will be in the hitting zone and you will break his defence. This even works on the big guys but the spacing is a little different. I agree @deerokus this is easily the best combat in an open world game by far it's great.
  19. I’m always using the heavy moves as @MardiganX says they’re essential especially the shield damaging one, you just need to time it right, get the exact space you need to charge it up and hit their shield. Also don’t sleep on the kick it’s actually really bloody useful if you are getting crowded as it removes the enemy from the fight and if you have the upgraded kick they get stunned too. Also it’s fucking hilarious watching them fly in the air! Still not bored of the game and lethal mode is awesome.
  20. It really makes you use all of your equipment when fighting large groups, and whilst you die much easier your strikes also do way more damage. I died a hell of a lot through that whole episode of taking back the castle though
  21. Well lethal mode is pretty great, really ramps up the difficulty though I had to turn it down during the (ACT 1 end spoiler)
  22. I really don't remember finding anything really cool in BOTW apart from the fish people village, not hating on it it's a great game just really don't get what people are saying is really cool and surprising. There never seemed to be any great reward like you get in say Dark Souls with lots of unique weapons and items hidden around the world to find, anything I found in BOTW seemed to be identikit of something else I'd already found numerous times.
  23. I dunno, that might be because you hit the bear directly (I agree there should be more of a physical effect), I did the same thing by accident last night with a group of hogs, the arrow landed right in the middle of them fleeing and one of the hogs went flying, luckily the hides were not damaged as they would have been in RDR2.
  24. Seeing as comparisons are being made I have never managed to finish RDR2, as beautiful as it is the gameplay is rather dull and the game just generally feels like it hates the player (examples being hunting being a pain in the arse with finding perfect animals and then killing them correctly, the stupid control scheme, the fact you constantly have to go back to your base, the game never saving your loadout, many other annoying bugs but mainly the gameplay is just shit), BOTW likewise I got halfway through and was totally bored I couldn't bring myself to spending another 40/50 hours fighting the same enemies with the unsatisfying combat and the world felt rather empty. Far Cry 5, I got to the first big boss and likewise gave up, just so boring! I've not even finished Act One of this game so I can't say whether I will tire of this before the end but it does have that something that makes it really enjoyable to play for an hour or so. The fact you can nearly always (I know there are some exceptions) choose whether to stealth or fight with HONOUR (I always choose honour), that collecting stuff is just a click away whether you are on the horse or not, it just feels nice, the extremely shallow gamey elements in there are not bothering me right now because the world is fun to travel around, the combat is fun, switching between stances whilst getting rushed by groups of enemies, taking them all down with my amazing swordplay (which in itself is actually quite shallow, parry, mash triangle, done) making me feel like a Samurai badass. So yeah I can't say whether I'll make it to the end but these first 10-20 hours I've spent with the game have been fun and I like the fact I can just pick it up and drop it and come back an hour later for the same, it's just so easy to play and inviting to the player which in itself is a breath of fresh air.
