  1. Wordle 454 5/6 Seems I dropped lucky. Only got it via process of elimination and trying all combos in theory. Awful one.
  2. When are they planning a live action remake of The Princess and the Frog - That would get the internet in a fever.
  3. That AI (Mis)use is horrifying. I don’t understand the logic in assuming that Ariel is white? Its like assuming any other fictional character like an elf/wizard/witch can’t be black either….oh wait a minute…. Lizzo definitely looks the part and has the lungs for the musical numbers. Perhaps she couldn’t cut it in the acting chops department? Although I don’t know if Melissa McCarthy can sing.
  4. I always liked the Overwatch shorts. Not sure they were specifically meant as trailers for the game though really.
  5. Now I’ve finished the Orville I’m on to this. Half way through episode one and liking so far. Although:
  6. I used to think that was the future of video games. The FMV was decent but the game itself was a bit shonky.
  7. Also Lion King, Alice in Wonderland and Beauty and the Beast. All just don’t look right in live action. Animals in particular. In the original lion king all the characters have expressive and emotive faces but as soon as you transpose that to animated life like animals you can’t do that and you lose so much. It’s a shame as Disney have the means to ensure “traditional” animation continues and thrives.
  8. This is cack. Although - was surprised to hear one of the characters say the word bollocks in it.
  9. Just finished this and really enjoyed them. Hopefully Disney will cough up some finances for further series. I do wish they would change a few things though: I don’t think the uniforms look convincing and the shoulder pads look like cheap stick on rubber. Isaac just looks a little too much of a Dr.Who vibe for my tastes but it is probably too late to make huge alterations. Not sure a Kryten-Esque transformation works without explanation these days. This one is a recurring theme amongst most sci-fi to be fair but Orville has really dialled up the inclusivity and therefore it stands out a bit more. Why is it that when it comes to “Human” races I.e ones which look like us but with minimal make up/prosthetics are varied in races but others are not e.g Moklans/Krill. Perhaps the Krill can be explained with photosensitivity but you would imagine there would be some variance. I would wager that potentially Caylons could look different if they had differing tasks/primary functions too. Anyways - these are nitpicks and I think this series has been massively under-appreciated.
  10. Has anyones else’s Wordle stats reset to zero? Mine is like I’ve never played before. I’ve not switched phones/browsers or anything recently?!
  11. It was always unrealistic to expect them to have a great final series when the actual book has/had not been released yet. To be honest I blame GRRM more. In my more fanboy moments I sometimes feel he has left his original fans behind who were hooked on the books long before the TV show. Pleas finish the book before spending time and effort on all of this stuff!! Particularly when he is talking about an expanded universe within the TV setting!
  12. Confirmed. I’m still shit at this.
  13. Is anyone playing Quofee too? Am I going mad or are they trusting the same quotes quite a bit now.
  14. My take on the language thing in Prey was they dealt with it by not understanding the French folk. Almost as if the viewer has a Comanche babelfish. This was dealt with really well in the tv series Warrior. They periodically subtitle the Chinese and it morphs into English during a scene - such a cool device to allow English language whilst also letting an audience know they are actually speaking a different language really.
  15. Prey Lifted my comments from the other thread. Wow. A Great Predator movie. Not going to win any Oscar’s but the threat felt real, the central characters were believable and worked. It wasn’t rushed in how it builds up and I imagine inspiration has been sought from The Revenant in capturing some of the atmosphere of the wild around that time. The tone and feel reminded me a little bit of The Grey (the Liam Neeson wolf film which despite ropey reviews I rather enjoyed). 4/5

  17. I thought the Dunkirk was brilliant with a unique twist on the war film. Aside from an important plot point in the film - you don’t really see the enemy/Nazis. It was entirely focussed on the experience of the soldiers during the event and those that helped on the periphery. Especially considering it all happened in an age before mobile devices and social media. The Enemies were probably an unknown presence for the British soldiers and the general public and the film reinforces this. Must rewatch this actually .
  18. I remember loving this when it came out (I think I early early twenties). I don’t think this has aged well at all unfortunately and really is locked in the bloodsport/kick-boxer mentality. The fight choreography is so choppy and I’ve no idea what the strange stances transitions between them are about from the main guy. I used to to Muay Thai as a boy and don’t remember any of that outside of the ritual displays you do before a bout. It was amazing at the time though. The Raid in my view completely outclasses it though.
  19. Is that song version available on streaming services?
  20. Great teaser. I know nothing of this but looked fantastic. Is it shrouds in mystery who the next black panther is? Is a relaunch for a new king/queen? It would probably work better than replacing Boseman.
