    Venom (2018) - Boring. Silly. Funny.

    Saw this a couple of days ago, and thought it was alright. Maybe because my expectations were very low. An enjoyable 3 out of 5. As ever though, some of the CGI fighting at the end was a bit shit. And it seems we’ve come full circle and Hardy is now doing Logan Marshall-Green impressions? In fact, Venom does share some similarities with that guy’s film, Upgrade. Which everyone should watch (but not the trailers, go in cold if you can).

    Heavy Rain (PS3)

    I need to watch the rest of that. I think I stopped because I was laughing so hard at the “Jaayson! Jaaayson!” bit, I needed a breather to compose myself. edit: this one, starting at 31 minutes for “Jaaayson!”

    Orphan has been added. Mad horror movie, go in cold if you can.
  4. I disagree about the random encounters. I went off to go hunting for moose at Cairn Lake, north of the map and encountered the following... As ever, setting out for a simple task... moose hunting, and end up being surprised by a little self contained story.

    Aquaman - 14th Dec

    First comment on the youtube video of the original Africa by Toto is... "Came here to clean my ears after that Pitbull version". Exactly why I went there!

    Mortal Engines (2018)

    That's a pretty neat trick being able to make your name appear between your hands like that.

    Star Trek Discovery

    I did the same thing. Sure, some of the FX have dated a bit badly but there's a real sense of wonder that's missing from Discovery. Mind you, that initial shuttle journey around the Enterprise was way longer than I remember. Good though. No TV show or film would have the balls to do that these days.

    Star Trek Discovery

    Did they really drop the "looking glass" line in there? Okay, they changed it a bit, but jesus. It all looks so fucking boring and lazy. Naturally, I'll watch it. See you in January guys to tear it a new one!

    Red Letter Media Fan Club

    An old Christmas Best of the Worst. Contains some Rich Evans gold in the opening before they get to the discussion proper.

    The Jack Reacher Thread

    I'm about 65% through the second Jack Reacher book on my Kindle. He's basically a psychopath whose sheer masculinity, and prowess at eye gouging and thousand yard sniper shots, turns women's knickers moist with anticipation at the moonlit/stormlit/sunlit rogering they're going to receive. People are always shrugging. And nodding their heads. On one page, some form of nodding and shrugging seemed to happen every other line. The second book is full of professional FBI types going about their business. Unfortunately, they spend so much time shrugging, that they seem uninterested, like stoners who'd rather be rooting through a cupboard for a tube of Pringles, than nailing the bad guys. This is my favourite paragraph so far from the second book, to describe some holes in a roof... What makes the books so good, is the underlying feeling that Lee Child takes these stories very seriously. If there's a sense of irony, I haven't found it yet. In a way, I hope it stays that way. Reacher is a like Bond/Bauer hybrid, who could probably kick the shit out of both those guys, and it's great fun seeing him get the best of the baddies in a ridiculously over confident manner. Seventeen of the bloody things so far as well! I'm trying to read them in order. Anyone else a Reacher fan? Anything spoilery, spoiler tag it with the book it's from as a warning.

    Season 1 of Ash vs Evil Dead has been added.
  13. I don't think I've felt so immersed in a game world. Short clip of me taking a short early morning horse ride through the woods. Everything just feels so alive.

    4K Blu Ray - anyone collecting?

    What's the original Predator like in 4K? Thinking of asking for it for Christmas, but remember one of the blu-ray releases of it being DNRed to fuck.

    Daredevil - TV Series

    As much as I’ve enjoyed a lot of Netflix produced shows, I think it would’ve been better if they’d stayed as a streaming version of Blockbuster. That’s basically what we need but everyone wants a bigger slice of the pie now.
  17. Just watched it. Even with low expectations it was mediocre.

    Daredevil - TV Series

  19. The game won’t start for me now. After the Rockstar logo with the gun being loaded, it goes to a black screen and nothing happens. It’s fucked!! Anyone any ideas? edit: I moved the game from my external drive to the bone’s internal drive and it’s working again.
  20. It's occurred to me that I have read virtually no fantasy (apart from the Discworld books). When it comes to genre fiction, I've mostly read SF. I gave up on Lord of the Rings about halfway through the first book, and I'll be honest, when I see huge thick tomes on the shelves which are often the 5th part in some impossibly long saga, the time investment to get through such tales puts me off. But it seems a shame, as I'm sure there must be some imaginative fantasy out there that I would enjoy. It's just knowing where to start. The appeal of SF for me is that a lot of books in that genre tend to be self contained, or if part of a series, can still be enjoyed as one-off stories. I guess I'm looking for something equivalent in fantasy. Am I wrong in thinking it's mostly epics spanning multiple volumes?

    “Do you bleed?” ”No, the BBFC cut it.”
  22. Sometimes I'm not sure even what I've done wrong, or the response feels disproportionate. I was in Valentine (it always seems to be Valentine where I get into the most trouble), and popped into the sheriff's office. There was a bounty in the cell, a woman who I'd put there earlier in the game. Maybe she'd escaped and got caught again, I dunno. Anyway, I talk to her and make a joke about breaking her out. Sends one of the sheriff's deputies into a tizzy, and even though I try to defuse the situation (80% of the time that never seems to work), he starts shooting. Fuck this. I swear to God, I must've ended up slaughtering half the town in the end. Bullets were flying everywhere once the battle spilled out onto the streets. Lawmen, townsfolk, they were all gunning for me. The battle took in every area of Valentine. And all because I made a joke. For some reason it made me think of the real ultimate power website where a ninja kills an entire town because someone opened a window, or dropped a spoon.

    The Walking Dead!

    Thought the latest episode was actually... good!!

    I enjoyed Cam as well. Interesting idea and agree the lead actress really carries the film. Thought I’d seen her somewhere before, and she’s in The Handmaid’s Tale. Great in that also.
