  1. I really liked Straight Time but Theresa Russell’s character infuriated me. There’s nothing to her, and no attempt to explain why she’d fall for Hoffman and then stick with him as the situation escalated. That was the only bum note for me though. M. Emmet Walsh and Kathy Bates also deserve a mention for being excellent in fairly small roles.
  2. Seconded, thank you mechamonkey for mentioning Heave Ho in your local multiplayer recommendations. Had some friends over this weekend for board and video games and we spent the most time on this by far, swapping in and out when someone’s nerves were too frayed or fingers were too tired. We had a good few hours of hysterical laughter and good natured teasing and weren’t even halfway through. Buy it because I want DLC and a sequel.
  3. Phase IV High Life World on a Wire A Boy and His Dog
  4. 1. The Favourite 2. Burning 3. Booksmart 4. Eighth Grade 5. Bait 6. Can You Ever Forgive Me? 7. High Life 8. Border 9. Midsommar 10. One Cut of the Dead Hale County This Morning, This Evening In Fabric
  5. Amongst other things I’d like to record live into Loopy, so it needs to happen on the fly really.
  6. What do I need to record into an iPad, via lightning or headphone jack? I know I could get something like the Line 6 Sonic port but I assume that’s a bit fancier than necessary.
  7. You live in Lewes! I need to visit The Depot. My nearest cinema is a Cineworld built inside a multistory car park, which is as aesthetically pleasing as it sounds. It shows a decent selection of films though, I saw Killing of a Sacred Deer and The Florida Project there, for example. For anything else I can usually go to the Duke of Yorks. It’s owned by Picturehouse (who are owned by Cineworld) but they regularly do one off screenings of interesting or cult films and take part in various film festivals. The oldest cinema in continuous use in Britain, apparently.
  8. King of Tokyo Love Letter Escape The Dark Castle Dobble Cockroach Poker/Royale
  9. I’m new to iOS gaming. Any recommendations for particularly good turn based/tactical games? I notice there’s a Tomb Raider/Deus Ex/Hitman GO bundle for £4.99.
  10. Hi Goose, if you have Amazon Prime video could you please give us your thoughts on Beyond the Seventh Door. Thanks.
  11. Here's a good two player game thread: I bought Patchwork and Jaipur based on recommendations in that thread and really enjoy them both. Splendor and Biblios both play up to four but I think they work best as two player games. Splendor has a decent app too. You can play all of those within half an hour/forty five minutes. Onitama and Hive will probably be my next two player purchases, both are quite highly regarded and come rllmuk recommended iirc.
  12. Didn't receive any board games for Christmas but I bought Fungi for my housemate - He owns a piece of woodland and forages for mushrooms and enjoys card games so it seemed a good fit. Catan: Cities and Knights for my gf (who introduced me to the hobby) - Catan was her first proper board game, she's competed in the tournament at the UKBG expo in the past, and I knew C&K was her favourite expansion. Codenames: Duet for my dad and stepmother - They love word games and aren't particularly competitive. and King of Tokyo for my ten year old nieces - They don't really play board games and I'm trying to get them into them. They fucking LOVE it.
  13. I got some nice stuff for Christmas: Monograph is beautiful (obviously) and ENORMOUS, which I wasn't expecting. Looking forward to re-reading all of my Chris Ware books once I've worked my way through it, some time in 2021.
