    The Emulator Thread

    Really? Had no idea. What about multiplayer?

    The Emulator Thread

    Yeah, was tempted anyway but presumed things would get better with its release. Worth it then? Yay/nay? Other opinions? And could you put any USB pad in? I see 360 controllers are popular but Logitech have always done good PC ones...

    The Emulator Thread

    Considering a Raspberry Pi for SNES emulation primarily but maybe other stuff. Opinions? I gather it's getting/gotten better and the 'big games' should run full speed? Pretty cheap and reasonably easy to set up?

    Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity

    Finally saw this yesterday, in IMAX, thought it was an incredible cinema movie. I just cannot fathom how it was possible to implement such a vision. I am staggered that technology and creativity have managed to unite to a point where a movie this cohesive and beautiful is possible. I agree the script wasn't the best but the journey was awe-inspiring.

    Just re: gin and tonic, I find that using diet tonic takes off the bitter edge some find unpleasant.

    The Ultimate Burger

    I'd like a good wedges/similar recipe please. I like it when they've had a paprika based coating especially.
  7. I enjoyed it on the whole. The acting was fantastic, you might as well have been watching the real Niki Lauda at times. I like how they painted their characters warts and all, not simply trying to portray them as 'I want to win!' and 'I want to be sensible!' I had a fear it would have been dumbed down as opposed to simplified for the screen but happily it was very much the latter. I was a bit disappointed with the manner of direction at times though. There's a real mish-mash of narration, editing and camerawork and it just didn't feel as cohesive as it could have been: it went from fast-cut editing to very filmic sweeping shots that felt very glossy, then there'd be vintage text overlaid... I just wonder if it could have been done as more of a contemporary documentary, which would have made the spool-on segments feel less jarring and allowed more vintage footage and so on. Some of the racing was a bit underwhelming too - Senna showed how exciting an extended cockpit camera shot is/was at the right moment. It almost went there a couple of times but didn't, which was a shame. I know the film wasn't about the racing per se but it was the same few 'from the grass by the apex' shots and forward-facing wheel-to-wheel over and over. Still, I think making it at all is quite the achievement and it's a good film.

    Big School

    Although as the poster above mentioned, it was deliberately a bit '70s, which is weird as it was like The Grimleys didn't happen.

    15 seconds in, my mum turns to my dad: 'This is crap.'

    The Avengers - Third Biggest Film of All Time

    The most satisfying superhero movie ever, I think. In pretty much every other, ever, you get the sense there's some octogenarian financier wagging his decrepit finger. The Avengers was joyous abandon. Looking forward to buying it for my dad.
  11. I was waiting for Leo to cheerfully walk through the background.
  12. Thought the first movie was pretty rubbish, second was good, this was pretty dire. At least you could actually see them fighting though, he learned something!

    Would be surprised if it was a decent transfer.

    Oh dear. Anyone else just think Will Ferrell? 'I can't stop it!' Wish you fucking would.
