  1. I’d put money on Sony instead showcasing their upcoming games with youtubers to the chagrin of anyone left on this poisonous rock who isn’t a sociopath. Bah humbug.

    Digitiser:The Show - Starts next sunday!

    Thought this was terrible. It was akin to a load of 6th formers making their media studies coursework and trying to be edgy, funny and insightful. Too bloated, self indulgent, needed major editing and the attempts at comedy were poor. The only way is up.

    Toy Story 4 - June 2019

    There’s a snake in your head, pardner. Toy Story trilogy is peerless. All absolutely superb.

    Fulham spent 98m this Summer, along with 7 players on loan. Although they picked up some decent players, getting two goalkeepers in was always going to be a bad idea. Add to that, there seemed to be little rhyme nor reason for some of the purchases. Now not sure if that was the manager’s fault but he didn’t help himself with the constant shifting of players and formations. Great to see Claudio back in the league. Love the guy so much.

    I was about 8 bottles of Wild Beer down by that stage. I was all out of fingernails at that point.

    It’s been hard reconciling my belief that you don’t get to be a billionaire without a sizeable amount of people being screwed over with my genuine adoration for Vichai. He helped to facilitate one of the greatest times of my life and genuinely made a dream come true. Doing the ironing whilst watching Chelsea claw back a two goal deficit against Spurs was one of the best moments of my life. Icing on the cake was sharing the moment with my eldest both bawling our eyes out. Football eh?
  8. This was as important and difficult a watch as Night Will Fall. For anyone who's not seen it, NWF was about the liberation of the concentration camps following the end of the Second World War and was captured on footage shot by Hitchcock and Sidney Bernstein. The footage was then abandoned, possibly due to political reasons, until members of the Imperial War Museum got their hands on it and turned it into the documentary. It's one of only 2 documentaries (the other was India's Daughter) to make me feel physically sick. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbB9NCYzQVU

    Went to the King Power last week to pay my respects to Vichai. Was pretty impressive the sheer scale of the support from fans and clubs across the country and even though it was a dark weekday night there were at least 200 people doing the same. As heartwarming as the eulogising of him has been in the media, they seem to have focused on the same anecdotes. I've only seen this referenced once in the media, but at the end of every game Vichai would visit the King Power memorial garden. Before heading off in his helicopter he would always leave an unopened bottle of whisky and glasses, so that any fans who had suffered a family loss could toast their memory. He did seem to have the best interests of the fans at the forefront of his mind.
  10. For anyone that was put off by the trailer or basically felt it gave away pretty much all of the story, ignore that. This was a really enjoyable film and some of the cinematography and direction were superb. There was a scene fairly early on with a character giving some underlings a dressing down that was wonderfully shot. Character development is surprisingly nuanced considering the range of characters the story focuses on. I also enjoyed the fact McQueen didn't feel the need to layer on exposition; some strands were dealt with fairly promptly. Impressive performances from the excellent cast.

    Toy Story 4 - June 2019

    I can't wait for this. You can take your Godfathers, Star Wars, Three Colours, etc. Toy Story has given us the best trilogy in film history. Whilst Lasseter's other output has been patchy, the Toy Story films have been sublime. That final scene in Toy Story 3 gets me every single time; having kids that have grown up with the films always gave Andy's departure added significance.

    Detective Pikachu movie

    That looks far better than I think anyone could have hoped for. Initially bemused by a film called Detective Pikachu; after watching that it's day one viewing.

    Sleaziest film ever made

    Sucker Punch is sleazy trash made by a truly dreadful filmmaker. Ghastly.

    Your Very Best Gaming Year

    Largely down to Fallout 3 and BioShock (PS3 release) but 2008. Add Braid, Left 4 Dead, Far Cry 2, GTA 4 and hammering COD4 MP for much of the year. Not sure whether it was my best gaming year necessarily but it was certainly the most all-consuming.
