  1. I think some of them might be but I think the chat was it wasn’t great in that quite a few shots with cameramen in and stuff as it was always shot with 4:3 in mind even though in 16mm. There was a 4K master done a few years ago that reframed a lot of the dodgy bits. Assume that not what’s on Prime?
  2. The Gentlemen Guy Ritchie only seems to know how to do these types of films. It’s enjoyable enough though. Hugh Grant is fantastic in it and Colin Farrell’s best turn since In Bruges. Not quite as clever as it thinks (it’s pretty obvious) but the cast carry it very well. A good fun Friday night movie. 4/5
  3. The Shield is definitely up there with the best. Tempted to rewatch. Not sure if it’s been mentioned but Dark Waters is on Prime also. Worth a watch. Scandalous.
  4. Trial of the Chicago 7 (Netflix) 4/5 A timely and entertainingly told piece of history with some really good performances. Nothing ever changes in the land of the free. Very Sorkin which is largely a good thing I think. A Few Good Men (1992) 4/5 Another Sorkin movie but completely by accident. Can’t believe this is 28 years old. Peak Tom Cruise - he really was good at playing the cocky wunderkind. It’s still a good watch and a fantastic pay off with Jack Nicholson’s now legendary Colonel Jessop. Dark Waters (2009) 4/5 Get ince
  5. That’s really useful thanks. Did a v quick comparison on a Ziggy Stardust album and did sound quite different as the Spotify version was a remaster.
  6. Stylus arrived today! Not tried too much yet. It sounds good but I prob wouldn’t be able to tell the difference if I were to play from Spotify. But that was never really the point. It was about making me appreciate listening to music a bit more again. (Might try some blind testing though.)
  7. I was! I sent a snotty message to the retailer yesterday. They responded within a couple of hours apologising and will send me a replacement stylus ASAP. Feel bad they’re responding on Xmas day. Still don’t really understand how this happened though. Must have been an issue at the factory as the box was stapled shut. Anyway hopefully will get a chance to try it soon.
  8. Nope. It should already be installed. It’s broken. Must be from the factory though as nothing there when I removed the protector.
  9. Man how disappointing. Just set up new Play 5 speaker and Rega P1 to find there’s no bloody stylus! Am I being thick? Removed the cartridge protector thingy and there’s nothing there?
  10. Late to the party. Amazing film. Masterful is the word. I’d watched the first 30 mins on a plane ages ago and had been meaning to watch it. Sat down to watch with the kids (14 and 12). They started off bored, then intrigued, then worried, angry, and, finally, shocked. They were both in tears by the end and they weren’t sure why. I do feel slightly guilty about them watching it now. I had no idea what it turned into. It’s an amazing transition from comedy to tragedy. Just perfectly shot. We talked about it and they picked up on the themes pretty easily - it’s not all that s
  11. God I loved the Dragonlance books when I was about 12. Read so many of them. Even then I realised the spin offs were rarely any good. I suspect they’d not live up to the rose tinted spectacles. I remember them as being terribly earnest. Sturm and his stoic love for...can’t remember. Seemed to be a lot of angst going on. Raistlin was a great character though.
  12. I ended up going for the Rega P1 and a ProJect amp. Also ended up ordering another Play. Oops. It’s a Xmas present to my wife and I and looking forward to setting up on the day. Shame the Play 5 won’t come till after the new year. Had to get via Sonos to get the trade up discount.
  13. Yeah it’s incredibly annoyingly edited. I’m sure the previous ‘Movies that made us’ wasn’t that bad. Basically can’t watch this.
  14. Now I have a PS5 and an LG OLED I thought I’d check out a UHD disc to see if I could notice the difference to Netflix 4K. Had ordered a copy of Blade Runner 2049. Wow. Wasn’t expecting to notice such a jump in PQ. I certainly wasn’t expecting the difference in sound quality which was miles better. And that’s only on a half decent Yamaha sound bar set up. Only checked out the first 5 mins too. Can’t wait to watch the whole thing.
