Just played the trail plays very well and it's incredibly stylish. I can see it getting crazy the further you get in. It looks utterly delightful on my HDTV would love to try this in 3D.
Also didn't know this was a 360 exclusive. MS making another shrewd arcade pickup.0
Good thing they all left their phones in the car or we would have had one of these scenes.1
Yeah it's a weird film cruising quickly over events. I would have liked to have seen more politics and less scenes of her talking to dennis's ghost. As there was so much more interesting stuff they could have focused on plenty shown in stock footage. The poll tax riots,the falklands,the miners strike. There is an utterly cringeworthy scene where Dennis is proposing and a young Thatcher goes on a rant about how she will never become a woman stuck in the kitchen that was just awful. Her cabinet contained some real characters but they are only briefly shown and if you have no knowledge of who they are it makes their machinations less dramatic.
The film goes by in a blur i think a longer running time would have served it better. Streep puts in a great performance,Broadbent is solid as usual and Oliva Colman is very good as Carol i did notice we don't see her beloved child Mark in the movie though.
Overall the film shows her as a shambling, old lady, it' a pretty sad sight can't say she'd be too pleased if she went to see it.1
Must say i really love the opening titles, very unsettling.0
Grabbed all the episodes off a mate and have been watching these with the missus over the last few nights
It's the perfect way to watch shows like this 2-3 episodes a night. Anyway what a throughly enjoyable show,great characters and it's own bizarre logic to things. It's not scary expect the few times we see Thaddeus lurking in the basement. Or that piggyman episode.
Connie Britton is gorgeous, and erm a great actress and she holds the show together along with Jessica Lange who is my favorite character.
The overall cast is great.
I have one more episode to watch tonight. I sort of know what happens but it's going to be fun nevertheless.0
According to someone i know whose working on the movie from the post production side and has seen some bits and pieces the footage they've seen so far show
Bond in some sort of 'holding facility' for agents and he looks very rough.
With that picture above if that's for the film, i'm going to guess that sometime in the movie
M probably dies
though i hope that last part is not true as i'd miss
but on the other hand maybe that's what the series needs for an emotional shock?0
I for one i'm thankful, it's not like the states. Was talking to a friend who lives over there and he was saying that when he went to see 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' last week there were young children with their parents in the screening one of the kids started crying when the rape scene went on. The parent just told the kid to shut up.
Can you imagine some of the ingrates who would bring their little kids to highly unsuitable movies if they allowed it over here.
Back on topic the 12a is interesting i have noticed more use of the word "fuck" being allowed lately and of course films which are clearly a 15 getting that all important 12a certificate nothing whatsoever to do with them being big hollywood pictures i'm sure..0
How many are left? I'll stick it out until the end but I'm not really feeling it.
I saw Stephen Merchant live last week and he was pretty funny though.
Stephen Merchant away from Gervais is very funny. I was watching Hall Pass the other day and he was the best thing in it.0
Another DL link to the trailer here
Looks awesome as expected, even in phonecamvision. Hathaway in particular looks very intriguing in the moments we see of her.5
I think the worst thing about the show is that Warwick is an out and out asshole.
With something like CYE, Larry may be an asshole but he is usually right, but goes about things the wrong way. Here though Warwick is so horrible most of them time. Their is nothing redeeming about the character no realisation that his being an idiot.
As for the Gervais and Merchant moments every episode why? they're not supposed to like Warwick as they made clear in the first episode and yet here he is again in their office for more 'wacky' adventures, don't get me started on the forced in celeb cameos the best one Liam Neeson has not been topped as it was genuinely funny.
The rest though have been terrible.
Also it's bloody gutting to see Matthew Holness in this, what i wouldn't give for another season of Garth Marenghi's Darkplace.0
Glad I preordered that version. Thanks Game!
Lol the code i got in my box for that pack didn't even work. when i picked the game up on launch night
I got told to get in contact with EA for a new one.0
This was very slow DL'ing earlier despite me DL'ing something of the same size on Live very quickly a few mins beforehand. Will probably be a nightmare when it hits evening trying to get this.
Apart from that the maps were as i remember them. Fantastic.0
The Youtube app is bloody fantastic. I have linked my Youtube accounts and now have access to my playlists and subscriptions.
I voice control most of it and the whole thing is a delight to use moreso if you have a kinect although search does not allow voice atm. Muzu is great as well i loved Vidzone on the PS3 but it was confusing and unwieldy this is nice to use and of course voice controlling everything is making me love using these things.
Hope the 4OD app goes up this week. After the terrible PS3 one lets hope channel 4 have put some effort in this time.1
Watched this last week.It was good but not as good as the original it felt way too rushed. The fun in the original was this cat and mouse game between Charlie and Jerry a bit more investigation before the reveal and the house visit charlie and Peter Vincent make.
Add onto that the club scene in the original was more fun and Evil Ed's fate felt more poignant in the original as well. As we had actually spent time with him so Jerry playing on his thoughts and fears made more sense.
But still it was an enjoyable remake nevertheless, I really like Yelchin as an actor he has an easygoing charm to him and Imogen Poots yum yum.0
Wow this pretty cool.
Forgot how freaky some scenes in Batman Begins were because of the fear toxin.2
Ico, Shadow of the Colossus and The Last Guardian creator Fumito Ueda has left Sony, Eurogamer understands.
Japanese video game development sources indicated the 41-year-old is working on finishing oft-delayed PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last Guardian in a freelance capacity. Ueda's departure from Sony internal development studio Team Ico is one of the reasons for the game's protracted development, Eurogamer was told. Following the completion of the game, Ueda will embark on personal projects.
In September Sony reassured gamers that Team Ico was still "hard at work" on The Last Guardian, despite the high-profile PS3 exclusive missing the Tokyo Game Show.
The previous month SCE Studios president Shuhei Yoshida gave an exasperated-sounding Last Guardian progress update:
"It's been very difficult in terms of seeing the progress: not as fast as we'd been hoping for, and the team has been under big pressure," he said. The Last Guardian was delayed earlier this year to an unspecified time in 2012. The cat-eagle adventure was originally slated for a "late 2011" release.
Ueda was director and lead designer on PlayStation 2 games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, which both took four years to develop.
The Last Guardian was first mentioned as being in development over four years ago, in February 2007, by Japanese magazine Famitsu. It was eventually revealed at E3 2009 with an eye-catching trailer. However, it failed to show at E3 2011, Gamescom 2011 and Tokyo Game Show 2011.
Sony told Eurogamer it does not comment on rumour and speculation.
Damm can't bode well for the TLG if this rumour is true. A rush to finish the game? Hopefully not.0
Postman Pat getting executed at the end in Belfast was fucking cold. Brilliantly done though.
Also this is the first time I watched a HD rip of the show. It really highlights just how much green screen work they do, doesnt it? It all looks like sets on the SD versions, I think I'll go back to that rather than sit in uncanny valley.
It's usually pretty good in HD.
The lastest episode had some very obvious work though. That scene
in the car in ireland was.0
Nicked from GAFFrom the Empire interview:
Nolan on the time between TDK and TDKR:
"Our story picks up eight years after The Dark Knight".
On the prologue:
"The Prologue is basically the first six' date=' seven minutes of the film. Its the introduction to Bane and a taste of the rest of the film. With Bane we are looking to give Batman a physical challenge that he hasn't had before"
Lindy Hemming (costume designer) on Bane's mask:
"He was injured early in his story. Hes suffering from pain and he needs gas to survive. He cannot survive the pain without the mask. The pipes from the mask go back along his jawline and feed into the thing at the back where there are two cannisters of what ever it is..the anasthetic"
R* bossing it again. Best developer this gen imo, no one has made open worlds as good as they have this gen.1
I got both games. That way depending on my mood i can pick and choose.0
I played Hardcore TDM for the first time ever last night, and despite being terrified for my first couple of games, I really enjoyed it. Losing the mini-map really slows things down, doesn't it? I can see it'd probably be tough to lone-wolf (as soon as I lost my friends I generally felt helpless) but loved the emphasis on teamwork that the gametype brings. I even had to tell my teammates specifically where I'd dropped the ballistic vests - not that I'm sure they help in HC - because I didn't realise that it strips everything from your HUD. Also, I shot my friend in the face by accident. I'm still learning.
You'll find that you will come to play Hardcore TDM more and more a much better mode than the standard TDM like you said it's slower more purposeful,and good players can dominate the lack of map and more reliance on sound is also awesome.0
Is there a rllmuk MW3 group on Elite yet?0
That cast is awesome from having read the script can't wait to see actors put voice to those words.0
I love Seatown reminds me of a CS map.1
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
This looks very handy
That's a nice package can't wait to see the new DLC as well.
