  1. I've been waiting for this to hit streaming so that I can get utterly smashed watching this shite with some friends. Where is Flatley when we need him most?
  2. Soft & Quiet Intense and a little close to the bone. It's a decent exploration of I don't think it's intended to be a black comedy as a review mentioned above. It just opens with a disarming tone because... well why on earth wouldn't it? It's the horror genre, and about 80% of them do that. Between this and Barbarian, that's two 'go in blind' horror films I've seen lately that have left me pleasantly surprised. 3.75/5
  3. "This looks like a bunch of clichés. Give me my ground-breaking 'male character saves the defenseless princess' plot!"
  4. For people who watch the explainer videos, do you feel like this should be information you can glean easily from the original episodes? Or is it just good additional lore and content that you're happy to consume alongside? Any time I feel like additional content outside of the primary show/book/whatever is needed for clarification, I feel like the storytelling has failed a bit.
  5. Since picking up a Chromecast with Google TV, I've discovered a fun (very stupid) wrinkle with Oculus casting. Which wasn't an issue with the old Chromecast. Basically, the Oculus won't cast on 5GHz, only 2.4. So I've set up two separate wifi networks. I also need to switch back to 5GHz if I want smooth movie streaming in Skybox. A bit annoying, but the workaround is fine.
  6. I'm not definite, but I'd heard that GOTG3 was going to be non-chronological and feature the adventures of Thor and the Gang. Though obviously that messes with the idea of any real peril for the team, but don't most of these?
  7. My old LG TV has this as an option for split screen games. Never actually tried it out, but it sounds like a sensible use case.
  8. I think they made them denim in Smash Bros a long old while back. Can't remember if that translated to the main games.
  9. Wakanda Forever Forever isn't kidding, as it's a long 2h45. But it dealt with the sentimental stuff about Chadwick Boseman pretty well, feeling poignant rather than exploitative. Though I'm sure it'll age the film. It's got its high points, largely in the representation. The fact that you go an hour before you even notice that there's nary a white actor in it. So they nailed that aspect, as it feels complete without feeling too tokenistic. Although the franchise does very much feel like Marvel's community service, and I hope they don't keep the progressive representation contained to it. Overall it can be a bit loud and forgettable, and took forever to get from A to B, but I'm basically glad I saw it. Also 3/5
  10. Legacy of Canine: Soul Retriever
  11. Well, after taking a couple of months off, I came back and hustled from lv46 to 52. By this point, I was enjoying the side quests that I simply didn't have the bandwidth for previously. Plus, I wish someone had told me about the XP goldmine that is the Bounty Board. Due to a coincidence of two high-value bounties wanting the same conditions, I made 160k XP in bout 5 minutes. I've now swept up everything I think I'm likely to. Atlantis done, Cult done, obvs main story done, and it's been largely brilliant. Just so, so expansive and all-consuming. I also think that Ubi wildly overestimate how much fun it is to fire literally hundreds of arrows into one enemy over 15 minutes. Which is why I did none of the big hunt missions - they're just so drawn out and dreary. @Stu What was the mind-blowing thing? I don't think I missed anything...
  12. If you've tried re-syncing in the app, I'm not sure what else could be wrong. Does it locate anything when you search for it in app?
  13. I thought the Stormzy one was fine. Nothing groundbreaking, all light stuff on the surface and an interview that wouldn't be out of place on a sunday teatime. The Dench one was amazing though. She just engenders so much emotion with every story and mannerism. Louis responded well enough, but she was captivating and heartbreaking. I didn't think he handled the Weinstein thing particularly well, as she'd defended him before and the conclusion was neither new nor useful. That said, it would've been hard to pursue a tough line of questioning against someone so simultaneously likeable and frail. This series doesn't seem like it'll be great, but I 100% recommend the Judi Dench ep. I'd watch a whole series with her.
  14. To be fair, saying that you'll only donate to a worthy cause if conditions are met is also the sort of diversionary shite you'd expect from the Mail. Fortunatley he didn't mean it. I think it's achieved its purpose, and Lycett's earned a lot of goodwill over the years anyway.
  15. You would hope he's just donated it anyway, since he's had much more than 10k in publicity.
