  1. “You found the marble in the oatmeal! That means Johnny gets to drink from the FIREHOSE!”
  2. UHF is genuinely one of my favourite films, even though I know that is objectively shit. My sister and I still quote the Spatula City ad to each other.
  3. Just did the update in the first post, all paid up to 2025 now! Thanks for the help above! ^
  4. To get all the XP before the final boss.
  5. I played the entire game solving everyone’s problems without killing almost anyone. When I had sucked all the content from bones, I went round and drained every single NPC in the game. It was such a creepy hour of gaming. Genuinely felt like a psychopath.
  6. Great finale! As expected, lots of surprises and new questions for next year. Definitely think they managed to stick the landing for S1 and excited for S2!
  7. I’ve just let my Game Pass lapse, and I’ve bought 3 years worth of gold to do the top up trick. But I’ve also just been given a year’s free ultimate game pass code from BT. Is there anyway to use the BT code and my gold codes, or am I better off just doing the gold trick and ignoring the BT offer? I guess if I use the BT offer I’d be gambling on the Gold codes not expiring and the exchange offer still being open next year?
  8. The penultimate episode so presumably the final episode is going to drop a big fat twist on us, Shyalaman-style.
  9. Was a shame we never got to retool it as I do feel there was a good game in there that we didn’t quite manage to find. It did play a part in getting me a job as the senior producer on Fall Guys and I work on Fortnite now, so still glad we gave it a go! There was some beautiful Sprite work in the game!
  10. That’s so weird, I watched Paper Moon last night on a whim! Sad news, he made some great pictures and his commentaries on movies were always great.
  11. Just watched the four-part “Love Fraud” documentary on Amazon Prime about Richard Scott Smith, a serial bigamist and con man. Basically he’d love bomb vulnerable women, marry them, get them to take a bunch of credit out then steal money from them, often leaving them in crippling debt. Was a really interesting doc as he was actively conning women while the doc was shooting and it turns into an attempt to capture him, rather than just tell the victim’s story. Only meant to watch the first episode, and ended up staying up until the wee hours watching the whole damned thing. Definitely worth a watch if you like true crime shows about con men, or if you’re really lonely and bored and enjoy staying up into the middle of the night watching any old shite for no good reason even though you have work in the morning.
  12. I quite enjoyed this. Whilst I do wish the script was slightly sharper, and it could have done with a bit more originality, it still hit me squarely in the nostalgia feels as designed. Really don’t know why
  13. Technically it’s on Star, which is sort of their international version of Hulu which is bundled in with Disney+ outside the US, weirdly making it much better value than the US Disney+ offering I think.
  14. It was brand new then, so the strong musk of gamer sweat and hormones hadn’t quite set in yet.
  15. The first time I killed a video game animal was in the newly opened Woking branch of Game in the early 90’s. They had a 386 PC set up and you could play the shareware version of Wolfenstien 3D on it. The first time a Nazi attack dog jumped at me, I shot it, and then was immediately violently sick into a bin under the table. A few years later, they opened the famous Prince Andrew alibi Pizza Express nearby. Makes you think, doesn’t it?
  16.

  17. The first 30 minutes are incredibly abrasive, and Simon comes across as a gigantic tool, but I was very impressed at how they managed to turn it around by the end. Reminded me a lot of Andy Kaufman’s bad comedian act, where he’d try to bomb as hard as possible to annoy an audience to the point of booing, before turning it round and winning them back by the end of his set. Very much had that early 2000’s Ghost World/Napoleon Dynamite vibe. Probably would have missed this one if not for this thread, so thanks!
  18. https://www.slashfilm.com/717599/ghostbusters-ultimate-collection-box-set-only-comes-with-a-digital-copy-of-the-2016-movie/ Does anyone know if this is coming out in the UK? Can’t find it listed anywhere but the extras sound good!
  19. There’s been a bit of chat about it in the scary movies thread. I’m really enjoying it too. Definitely enjoying it as a much nastier take on lost with a hefty splash of Lord of the Flies. At the moment I think it’s walking the mystery/supernatural tightrope quite well, but feels like it could very easily collapse into nonsense at any point. Really great cast though, and definitely a weekly tv highlight for me atm.
  20. Yeah really enjoyed Don’t Look Up, was funnier than I thought it’d be - loved the mid-credits scene!
  21. I’ve just finished DiU tonight (Have watched 4 seasons in two weeks!). Really enjoyed it overall, although as you mentioned, there were a LOT of plot threads that went no-where. Definitely was expecting a big twist with But nope! I did like the fact that pretty much every enemy became an ally this time though (even if I liked that overall it was a season about healing rather than defeating people. Are the last two seasons any good, or have I seen the best of it now (will watch them both either way).
  22. I really want a Bishop/Yelena spin-off called Black Eye now.
  23. Just finished Dopesick. Brilliant bit of television, hope it wins all the awards. So disgusting how the opioid crisis happened, fuelled entirely by greed, and entirely unnecessary to begin with.
