  1. My son took his Grade 5 trumpet exam today and one of his pieces was the Raiders March. Makes you think. I have the blu ray but never sat down and watched it with him. This Christmas, for sure.
  2. Any animator/director that suggests one of those 'sudden-slow-mo-with-low-pitched-audio' shots needs to be fired instantly.

    Dredd 3D

    There once was a poster name ZOK Who saw the film Dredd and said "Drokk! Karl Urban's weak chin Has ruined this thing I'll moan all the time on the 'muk" I don't care that the rhyming isn't perfect so don't even bother.
  4. Humbug is a brilliant puzzle game where you have to clear each level by moving different bugs around a tile-based board in a set number of moves. Each bug moves in a different way. It looks great too.
  5. This is the one I have: It's great for chicken thigh fillets (marinaded in olive oil and whatever spice you like). It's also good for prawns on skewers, halloumi, peppers, slices of aubergine/courgette, anything that can take being chargrilled to get a crispy and flavoursome crust. Same for steaks/chops/fillets, though I don't really do many of those.
  6. That's a good find. The whole song is great - apparently it was used in a scene in Better Call Saul but I can't remember it at all.
  7. Thanks to YouTube's autoplay feature, I've just discovered the French artist/ambient composer Lucette Bourdin. Incredibly, she only came to music later in life and created 25 albums in an eight-year period before her death in 2011. This is the only album of hers I've heard so far, but it's brilliant and one of those pieces that goes on a journey through a few different styles, taking in deep space, dark synths, and warm drones. You can hear the influence of giants of the genre: Brian Eno, Harold Budd, Klaus Schultz, and others no doubt. I don't know how representative it is of her other works, and I expect given the short-time frame in which she operated there may be some degree of similarity between albums, but who knows.
  8. Yeah, given that the result of running out of stamina can be pretty catastrophic/frustrating, making the wheel so prominent means you're less likely to run out accidentally. Having said that, I could go for a pro mode setting where the wheel is removed and there are more subtle cues in Link's animation/sound effects to indicate his stamina is running out, a bit like the extreme temperature warnings.
  9. The original trailer showed Hyrule Castle rising out of the ground, and I assumed that the floating islands might be other areas of the map that have also been ripped up. That would suggest we would get to explore those familiar areas up in the sky (no doubt modified in some way due to their upheaval) plus the new damaged ground down below.
  10. Cobra Kai multiverse! Also featuring characters from the animated TV series.
  11. I've always thought the film needs Pacino's histrionics to counterbalance the subdued, measured DeNiro. It's another way the film portrays the same-but-opposite nature of the characters.
  12. No tears please. It's a waste of good suffering.
  13. Arnie and his team of crack writers wage a bloody war against a ruthless foreign editor who wants to significantly rewrite chapters of their forthcoming book "Into The Meat Grinder".
