  1. 12. EXT. TATOOINE ZOO - DAY BOBA FETT: Look, Dad! A baby sarlacc! I wanna take a closer look! He starts to climb up the railings. JANGO FETT: Careful! You wouldn't want to fall into one of those. Baby sarlacc looks to camera. Raises the equivalent of an eyebrow.
  2. Someone should list them by volume of blood spilt and body parts lost - the Meatgrinder ScaleTM.

    In a strange coincidence, I was listening to the Manhunter soundtrack today. I'd forgotten just how good it was. I love this track in particular - an awesome piece of dark 80s synth:
  4. Second trailer, showing a different side to the film. I don't want to get my hopes up, but I have a feeling this is going to be special. I know it's one of the all-time great cinematic passion projects, and we all know that passion projects frequently turn out to be grand follies and utter turkeys, but something about it tells me this isn't going to be one of those. I reckon it's also going to scoop some awards somewhere, including best actor and supporting actor - their chemistry looks great. Am I deluded and just suffering from trailer-itis?
  5. To be honest, I can see a TV drama about that being made in a few years. If done properly, it could be a devastating indictment of celebrity worship, abuse of power and the dangers of inaction.
  6. Maybe the second cast member is the alien skull you see in the ship at the end. I'm pretty sure it's the same one that played 'Sentry gun fodder #23'.

    Mad Max - Fury Road

    Seem a classic case of execs knowing the price of everything and the value of nothing.
  8. "A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets." is far worse. It would make even a Mills & Boon editor reach for the red pen.

    There's still a way to go: an all-CGI remake of Button Moon. From the creators of The Emoji Movie, in association with Heinz Baked Beans and JML kitchen utensils. Mr Spoon voiced by James Cordon.

    The Goonies

    Good post. I've read a few YA books (which have ended up as films) which almost seem to be torture porn for kids - the protagonists are put through horrendous ordeals, characters suffer terribly and many face gruesome deaths, and the plots are twisted and squashed to enable that at the expense of any persistent narrative logic. That seems a bit cynical to me. And while the Harry Potter books also have their fair share of (relative) nastiness it's much more tempered and contextualised, and, crucially, they have a huge dollop of heart and soul to them.
  12. This is promising. So is this. And this. As long as it's not all the time, this sounds OK. Right - Dark Souls Remastered is on the list. Roll on summer. Thanks, everyone!
  13. Very interesting - thanks. In principle, a lot of what you talked about the game sounds intriguing and makes me want to play. I love the free-form nature of Breath of the Wild, but I presume Dark Souls is far more opaque and challenging than that?
  14. First bit sounds good, but the bold bit doesn't. But then again, you couldn't save where you liked in RE4 and that generally wasn't a problem.
  15. Dark Souls has pretty much completely passed me by as it came along when I wasn't really playing any kind of videogame, but since we got the Switch at Christmas, I'm looking around for something meaty that might be worth a look. I don't really know much about the games other than: a) plenty of people love Dark Souls with every inch of their being, b) it has combat, and c) it's supposed to be rock hard. Now, what I particularly like in games is a sense of progress, adventure and exploration, so stuff like Zelda, Resident Evil, Castlevania, for example. I also like a reasonable amount of RPG-style leveling up, but nothing too hardcore - I can't be arsed having to deal with a 1001 stats or micro-managing every inventory item every other second. I really like the RPG-light elements of, say, Symphony of the Night. Stuff that's essentially just repeating the same thing but looking for incremental gains doesn't really hold my attention that long, e.g. pure fighting/racing games. I like some type of combat, but as long as it's interspersed with exploration and other kinds of 'stuff' to do. I like atmosphere. I like a sense of a solid world. I like being able to do things at my own pace. Is Dark Souls for me or will it spit me out and leave me broken?
