    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    He'll actually be a bad guy this time I reckon.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    Speaking of the fact he used his hate at the end and was technically saved by Darth anyway, where has this idea that Luke is an unbeatable badass at the end of RotJ come from? Personally I thought him going off into hiding etc worked quite well with how sombre his ending was. Even the smile with the ghosts came across a bit more "you're alright kid, you get the struggle of the force" rather than "you are a supreme butt-kicker now!" I seem to remember that even the previously canon Timothy Zahn books had a certain amount of that (and the hubris of thinking he could train a new generation like in this trilogy).

    Neill Blomkamps..... ROBOCOP!

    Robocop 2014 wasn't as bad as the total recall remake but aside from a few things it wasn't a patch on the original. It's possibly slightly better than Robocop 2 though but really, the original is so good that everyone should go and watch it again this weekend. Go on.
  5. I hope he somehow incorporates his Riverdance skills in this blatant bond rip off. Maybe in a dance off... To the DEATH.

    Ghostbusters (2016)

    I'm the biggest and most unecessary fan of BttF and although I really, really don't want them to make a 4th which is apparently rumoured, doing a gender flip soft reboot thing with that could actually work quite well.

    That's part of the hatred for holdo and some people think it was done intentionally to wind them up it's such a "thing" on certain bits of the internet.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    Ok it was as stupid as I thought, good to know. Wasn't sure I'd missed something but that would obviously be giving these poor chaps too much credit. Although the more worrying thing is I do think that had I not have been 16 in 1996 when I got my first 28.8 modem then I may well have believed a lot more of all this incel/ GG/ angry Jack bullshit. I mean I'd like to think I wouldn't have but there was a time when there was similar sentiment between some of my friends (who were all male). I'm not excusing it but it's just quite strange to think how stupid it is and yet people go with it.

    Is the whole hatred fur purple hair thing still related to gamergate and people like Zoë Quinn ( who I think may have had purple hair at some point)? Because otherwise I don't really get it? I do see woman with purple hair in London and that but maybe it's more of a thing on American college campuses where it also means they're feminazis or some other total bullshit? I would have said it was maybe more of a punk thing than anything to do with s-jews.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    You need to get your eyes checked mate. I'm assuming this is the semi insult you mentioned "For example, I’ve been working on a piece that’s pretty hard on the thematic coherency of Blade Runner 2049 for like a year now, but if I use the word “bad” to describe anything about the film, you should just slap me" If you think that's an insult I can understand why you don't think the last Jedi works or that the end scene of TFA isnt Kylo fucking about with them because he's a petulant spoiled "son of a king" character that's also been shot in the chest by what is the most powerful handgun shown in those films' entire universe. Fair enough you don't like it but your arguments as to why it's bad or what have you are just misdirected. No it's not perfect but it's a good film in a franchise that's got literally no equal in regards to it's cultural impact and after we've already had three films showing how not to do it, the two so far are actually good and will set things up well for the future because Disney own it and they like money. Thankfully they also have some concept of how to make a film too. Maybe not the one you wanted but still a good film.

    The Meg - Jason Statham vs Giant Shark

    Statham is good value, he knows he's shit but at least he's genuinely good at martial arts and even more importantly, can sell it. He's easily at his best when he leans into the absurdity like in crank and so on, I think he's crap in snatch for instance but that is his debut so I'll let him off. He's also bloody great in spy. He's probably a better actor than a lot of similar people from the 80s, I mean I love Dolph but shit, he's really not very good at acting. Also, when you see the bootleg Stathams like Luke Goss, my appreciation for him goes up more, even though he's obviously rubbish. That's part of the fun.

    Yeah I don't understand why it's "bad" that women and non white men get more screen time? What sort of a pathetic criticism is that? It's not an sjw agenda, it's fucking business.

    Most impressive use of limited hardware.

    I played loads of that faceball 2000 while on a family holiday one year with no better machines to play, it's actually quite good.

    I don't know if it's technically amazing use of the hardware specifically but all of Delphine's intros on the Amiga were just amazing to me as a kid. Another world and flashback are still beautiful and the intro to flashback is still bloody good imho.
