    Premier League streamers sentenced to a total of 17 years The thing that struck me was the end of the article: Admittedly, their primary concern is protecting the revenue so it's entirely possible this is baseless scaremongering, but how many of you streamers have had to hand over personal details to access games?
  2. My favourite bit of this was the Metallica musical bookends at either end of the film. Not that they really added much but it was really interesting to see them use Orion at the end even if it was a bit weird and didn't really fit the final scene.

    Curfew (Sky)

    First episode was all over the place the the second episode was more coherent. I really like the opening title sequence. Very Carpenter-esque.

    Pleased with the win today. Milwall made it an absolute nightmare but Solly March's last minute equaliser knocked the fight out of them. Classy of Murray to go over and commiserate with them rather than joining his team mates immediately. City will most likely do us over but I fear them more on the last day of the season where there is still the outside possibility that we might need to win to stay up and they might need to win to seal the title. That would be horrific.
  5. Having seen this today, I do wonder how much I would have enjoyed it without the soundtrack and the bits with the cat.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    I kind of assumed the whole of Eyes Wide Shut was an exercise in Kubrick fucking with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, but like 2001, I'll probably have to take a few runs at it to begin to appreciate it.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    I think what we think are the worst films ever seen also depends on multiple factors personal to us. I remember trying to watch 2001: A Space Oddessy when I was 7 and predictably, hating it. Multiple re-watches over the years have turned that opinion around. Suck it, 7 year old me! I have a few friends who loathe Only Lovers Left Alive and, I think they'd put it here if they posted on this forum. I get it. Every character in that film is an annoying arsehole, but for some reason I really quite like it. That said, I wouldn't ever watch The Fountain again, which is cursed with similarly pretentious arseholes from what I recall. Actually, The Fountain might be worse than Tears of the Sun.

    I'd agree with Stigweard that generally if you're saying things like Batman vs Superman or Inception then perhaps you have led a charmed life and simply havent seen any straight to cable/straight to video garbage. Any that's fine if you carefully curate what you watch. I tried to make the same argument 10 years ago and ISTR that Kerraig argued that with the likes of Inception or Phantom Menace, the talent attached and the money and resources available to them, they should have done better and werre therefore worthy of "the worst film I've ever seen" title. And I totally get that. As to the worst film I've ever seen, I think it changes as the years go by. I don't mind amateurish and I don't mind terrible acting as long as it is entertaining or thought-provoking. And, for me, if a film isn't either of those things, then it has failed to justify it's existence. Which is why I would, at the moment at least, nominate "Tears of the Sun" as the worst film I've ever seen, but that it obviously subject to change due to my fading memory.

    The Orville - hang on, its actually good!

    I think S1 starts in quite an annoying Seth McFarlane Family Guy kinda way but matures quite a bit and by S2 I really think they really get the balance right.

    Star Trek Discovery

    I was pleased to see Melissa George again

    I still hold out hope that the red angels are the aliens from City at the Edge of Forever, but I imagine it'll be either Spock or Burnham in some sort of temporal suit.
  13. I don't know who that is. I may go and look him up, but there's no need to post a picture of him doing something awkwardly at a Microsoft event.
  14. Every time someone in this thread says "physical media" the ghost of Mr Cochese convulses in agony in whatever purgatory he's been exiled to since seemingly leaving here. I use my consoles as blu ray/DVD players still aswell so this is no good to me right now. But I appreciate it'll be my only choice soon like mobile phones without swappable batteries. Edit - Also Maverick sems like the antithesis of the safe conservative Microsoft corporate ethos, but I guess "Conformist" doesn't really work as a dynamic name to thrill gamers.

    One side effect of the Huddersfield win is that it was cause for Forest fans to celebrate St Ramsbottom's Day which I only found out about this morning not being a Forest fan myself. Derby's record is preserved for another year.
