  1. Bridge of Spies This is a simple tale well told but suffers from being overly long. Mark Rylance's performance is brilliantly understated and he steals every scene to the extent that the film suffers when he's not in it. Unfortunately his screen time is mainly consigned to the first half. The period detail is exceptional but I found myself switching off once the focus changed to Berlin. 3/5
  2. Picking up a cigar, smoking it then actually blowing 'smoke' out of my own mouth in that East End pub. There's been better VR games since but that was the moment.
  3. The Floor is Lava: I like that people actually disappear when they fall into the lava, like they've been swallowed up. I find it oddly disappointing when they emerge for the interviews in the studio later.
  4. Re the husband: To be honest, the second episode was quite dull and that bit was the only part which stopped me focusing on Picross. I thought it was much more likely that it was one of the later imprisoned serial killers operating in the area at the time.
  5. I thought it was mysterious enough. I was looking up how far you can realistically jump from a rooftop. This is from a parkour website: "Assess the situation. Gauge how far the building is from where you are standing. The maximum distance most people can jump, even with a running start, is about 10 feet. If the roof you’re jumping onto is lower than the one you’re leaping from, you might be able to go a couple feet more because of the added momentum." The high roof was about 40 feet away from the hole. The lower car park roof was 20 feet away. As the cop said, it just doesn't add up that he jumped and went through that hole. In any case the business 'friend' he worked for seemed well shady. I hope this Netflix series throws up some new information.
  6. I couldn't agree more. I tried to find something but this pretty much sums it up.
  7. It's not the best month for me either but I can't complain: I've been getting hours out of The Last of Us Remastered and Starwars Battlefront 2 this week. All in all PSplus is a nice lucky dip every month.
  8. Thanks, that gives me a lot to work on.
  9. These are just a few impressions because I've only played it about 10 hours and have barely scratched the surface. I got my first win (with Ironclad) and felt a great sense of achievement but also surprise because I thought there was going to be another act or two after the three stages. Not a criticism and in fact I can't wait to try it again, now with Silent. Having little experience with card battling I probably agonize too much over every card I play. Subsequently my runs take a long time but I do feel like I started to speed up a bit. My win came (probably) because of two cards that seemed to see me through really well: Bludgeon and Flame Barrier (plus Headbutt was very useful for bringing powerful cards back into my hand). I also got a half price off the shop membership card and a choose a random card at the start of combat relic which made a huge difference. I instinctively feel like relics have a major influence on run success moreso than good cards..? I still don't really know how to build a unified deck. Are there any good videos/resources to help me with this aspect? I see you can have attack decks, defence decks and probably more specific ones too. At the end of my run I had about 30 cards in my deck. Is this normal or should I ideally narrow it down and focus? Loving the game, it's a different change of pace, but I feel like I have a heck of a lot to learn and my win may have been more down to luck than strategy.
  10. It's reviews like these that make Rllmuk the only place I come to for videogame views and analysis. You are officially my favourite poster. (Now going to dig out The Road to read it again).
  11. Outback Opal Hunters. False cliffhangers all the way plus they only ever make enough money to cover expenses, but this feeds into my hobby of metal detecting.
  12. Titanfall 2 (PS4) Another PSPlus freebie I thought I'd try. This was a solid 8 for me all the way through. Enjoyed the weapons, movement and sense of weight. Respawn combine these incredibly well and it was good to see some old favourites like the Hemlock, Kraber and Mastif available. As a single-player campaign it never quite reached Halo heights though, as most of the playgrounds were quite narrow. I wanted more battlefields, open areas and spectacular set-pieces (though I did enjoy the timeshift and ship jumping sections). Does anyone still do multiplayer? I had a quick go and it was a lot of fun, though incredibly frantic. Might invest a bit of time into this if there's enough people still playing.
  13. The Disaster Artist This was great fun and I laughed like a drain throughout. Probably best to go in blind. 4/5
