    M Night Shyamalan's Glass (2019)

    I fell asleep for about 30 minutes whilst watching this film in the cinema, and I still don't feel bad about that.

    Antstream - It's Netflix for Games!

    Not a scam at all - it's the result of more than 4 years worth of negotiation and deals with various rights holders.

    Avengers: Endgame (April 2019)

    The Greek myths are in there too! Hercules has always been a semi-popular Marvel character, and he’s rumoured to be making his MCU debut in the Eternals movie, alongside *checks notes* er, Angelina Jolie?

    Akira

    Of course film appreciation is subjective, but you asked if he had a good track record, and by all the usual metrics (box office/critical response/award) he does. Obviously I couldn't have answered that question from your perspective, as I have no idea what films you like.

    Akira

    I'd say box office success and multiple Oscar nominations for the movies he's produced is a pretty successful track record regardless of whether you personally liked those films.

    Avengers: Endgame (April 2019)

    It took about 4/5 hours for my confirmation email to come through from Odeon for my BFI Imax tickets, so don’t panic!

    The Twilight Zone - Reboot from Jordan Peele

    Yeah I thought the first one was a very obvious and uninspired mashup, and it was at least 20 minutes too long. Looking forward to the (much shorter) second episode though, which is meant to be much better.

    The iOS gaming thread

    We did discuss it, it would obviously be easier if we could do a deal, as we’d have the advantage of starting off with 50+ canvasses and a name that some people will recognise. Building up a new set of canvasses though would take money (they weren’t cheap to produce) and time (or quick to paint). Its obviously doable, just feels like we’d need a bit of a cash injection to pay the artists if we were to do it ourselves. Id love to do it though, got tons of ideas on how I’d refresh the app, and I work at MediaTonic now, so have access to some awesome art talent. I suppose the other alternative might be to kickstart it, but not sure how far we’d get without any brand recognition or really reputation, other than as the guys that made Say What You See.

    I can do, I'm not sure his position will have changed though.

    Jordan Peele's 'Us'

    Same here, clocked it pretty much from the beginning. It sort of irritated me a bit as I really hate it when I get ahead of films. It takes me out of the experience, as I end up grumpily sitting there waiting for the film to do its big ‘ta da!’ Rug pull. Identity was the other movie where I can remember this happening. It’s like spotting how a magician does a trick while he’s still halfway through it, and personally I’d always rather be fooled and surprised than wearily proved right. Still there was still a lot of other things to enjoy, loved Winston Duke’s performance as a goofy sitcom dad, and the script was generally pretty funny. Thought there was way too much exposition in the end, and it was a classic example of telling and not showing. For me there was just enough exposition that my brain started working overtime trying to work out the inconsistencies. Also (not a massive spoiler, more a question for those that have seen the film.):

    I wish I’d got a royalty too.
  15. I really enjoyed it! Only negatives were the needle drops, which while era appropriate, were rarely used well. Just seemed like a waste of some good tracks. I also thought the fight/actions scenes were all a bit fast cut/blurry, and largely unexceptional. Everything else though, from the performances to the script was great. Overall I really enjoyed it. Can see why it’s over familiar to some as a sort of Guardians/Thor origin mashup, but I for one can’t wait to see Marvel go toe-to-toe with Thanos.
