    A movie watchers blog

    Whole film is a wonderful ensemble drama, still in my all time top 3 films - Jack Lemmon, Ed Harris and Alec Baldwin (billed as "Fuck you") also worthy of mention. I don't know if there is anything to it but I thought the same line "you're a fucking child" addressed to Kevin Spacey in (possibly) his final movie role in Babydriver could have been some sort of homage.

    ShopTo are still reliable at getting pre-orders to you the day before release.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Possibly referring to this form of in game currency? Seems to be lots of things to buy for your driving Avatar which is generally far more visible in this iteration of the franchise (something I'm not altogether keen on tbh). From IGN:

    Revealing info from Trophies and Achievements

    Those stats are significantly different on XB - 97% bought a toy, 89% played hand-on or Space Harrier, 85% learnt one move, 49% learnt 5 moves and 32% completed the game (guessing that is a high % as games go).
  5. I must admit to rather liking the sound of the rare (<10% of gamers) achievement on XB - that diamond sharp elongated trill sound, particularly when it's unexpected (like a couple of secret ones have been on Divinity OS2). Achievements and trophies provide too much data to developers / publishers for them to be dropped.

    League 1, 2, Non League Football 2018-19 Season

    Wet and cold for the most part. However, having no doubt experienced a very large boot up the rear following the Boreham Wood debacle, Sutton were on their game Saturday, buzzing around like a swarm of wasps, and Wrexham (presumably) weren't. I don't remember them having a single shot on target all game apart from maybe a couple of scrambles, and the highlights tend to back that impression up. I don't usually peruse the highlights of matches attended but on this occasion having missed both the penalty and the red card incidents I thought I should. However, I'm still no clearer on the penalty since the camera operator followed the ball as it swung over to the far post from a corner in the same way my eyes did, and there must have been a shove or tug in there which we both missed. The red card was a real clatter and probably no complaints there (neither incident was really disputed by the players). We had a goal disallowed for offside too, and it's always nice when "Gooner" Eastmond gets one - a crisp header in this case. So a decent 3 points for us and we have Dover at home on Tuesday which we need to approach in the same way. Always seem to be some surprising results in this league, probably owing to the intensity of the fixture list in August and September, but after Torquay last season we need to win games at home against poor opposition. After Dover it's 4, and potentially 5 with the FA cup draw, games on the road for us right up to the end of October.

    League 1, 2, Non League Football 2018-19 Season

    Sutton contrived to make the Boreham Wood front line appear to be Liverpool in disguise last night as they romped to a 4-0 win. We were truly dreadful, (unlucky Eastmond's effort which hit the crossbar and then the post notwithstanding), so the visit of Wrexham is viewed with some trepidation. The European tour continues with a trip to Dublin to face Bohemians, but if we get drawn away in the FA cup 4Q there will be no home football for a month in October - terrible for cashflow.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I think the drone goes up high enough - there are certain lowish walls which it would normally hop over but which are "hard" confines. It certainly goes long enough - from the White Horse to the Festival and way beyond, as an example.

    Your'e forgiven - the option exists in controls.

    Biggest discrepancy in gaming - your opinion Vs everyone

    Ditto - much prefer a run of the mill Euro to the same from Japan. Greedfall and Elex 2 soon please! Also, Kingdom Come Deliverance is not a sexist game.

    Yes, that's had a mention or two here.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I'm sure they will. Also don't forget the Rllmuk XB club - it's fairly moribund but it's much easier to post clips and shots there than here. You betcha. Hence my query over ice-cream. The interiors too are incredible, considering the nature of the game. We can but hope. But environments, structure and weather clearly won't be an issue whatever they do with the other team.

    Juh-rur-per-guh - The JRPG thread.

    Today's news that FFVII, IX, X/X-2, and XII (and a couple of non core ones) are coming to both Switch and XBO is mind boggling frankly. I only completed XII Zodiac age recently, but I'd love another go with VII and IX (and achievements?).

    I wonder if the shops will all still be advertising ice cream when the seasons turn .
