  1. Since there isn't a thread for it I thought I would leave my brief thoughts on the new Child's Play. It's a completely different from the originals and is all the better for it. A nice bit of modern life critique, some genuinely funny moments and a great vocal performance from Mark Hamill. Even the younger cast members are mostly decent and none annoying. A fine genre piece! A surprising 4/5 Skulls
  2. I will stick with it as I did enjoy the first two titles. I have origins as well but have never given it a proper chance yet.
  3. I just started AK the other day but not really feeling it so far. Too much Batmobile stuff and it feels totally forced. Not keen on the whole remote control aspect.
  4. Yeah. Pixar stuff usually has a wee bonus short before the main feature.
  5. Watched this last night. Not a bad film but felt pretty unnecessary. I liked Forky, and the evil dummies, but really wasn't a fan of the two stuffed fairground toys. They felt like they were straight out of an Illumination film rather than a Pixar effort. Also disappointed by the lack of short before the film.
  6. Spirited Away for me. I love it so much I have a no face tattoo which covers most of my left forearm!
  7. I was tempted but had a pretty boozy weekend past and then have the Brewdog Beatnik Brewery event next Saturday so I have decided to give my liver a weekend off!
  8. Bumping the thread as on Sky Arts tonight at 10pm.
  9. Went to see this tonight and didn't really rate it. The monster bits were good BUT the cast were almost all terrible, it went on for far too long and it wasn't as good as Skull Island. Also far too much emphasis on generic army shooterz type men and women who I really didn't give a rats arse about. A huge wasted opportunity. 2 Skull (islands) out of 5
  10. I think this one is the third.
  11. Was lucky enough to see Billy Corgan doing a solo set in Glasgow last night in an old church. Most likely the smallest venue I will ever see him in. Two sets over two hours. It really was something special.
  12. This looks the absolute business. Can't wait to have a go!
  13. Aye King Kong is a very odd choice. I would think that anyone who played it and got the very easy 1000g would never want to play it again. Maybe lined up for the next Games with Gold?
  14. I wasn't too sure what to call this thread and excuse me if it's all a bit rambling, but after playing Dead by Daylight lately and engaging with it's "community" I have been giving a lot of thought to whether people are just bad losers or if there is more to it. Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer online title where one of you picks a killer and tries to stop the 5 survivors by hunting them down and ultimately killing them before they can repair a fixed number of generators and escape. I decided that I quite like playing as the killer and have been having a reasonable success killing people and winning. The problem being when I started to receive messages from people I have just beat: "Nice camping noob" "You are pathetic" etc I decided to look into why this was the case and it turns out that there seems to be a whole host of unwritten rules (which REALLY seem to favour the survivors), such as: NO hanging about (camping) once you have hooked a survivor in the period before they get sacrificed Don't kill someone if you catch them near the start of the game No camping when the escape exit opens Respect the pallets (not too sure on this one but I think it's that you shouldn't destroy the pallets which the survivors can use to block the killer when he/she is chasing) Now in my mind I am doing nothing wrong, playing the game as it's made and within the rules set by the creators, but people really seem to take exception to this. Previous games have also had variations of this like Call of Duty and people's dislike of camping snipers, and Street Fighter 4 (seems to be if you play any character out the normal and win then the toys get thrown out of the pram). This link, although old, sums up how I feel and is still relevant to many online games: http://www.sirlin.net/ptw-book/introducingthe-scrub
  15. Maybe it depends what order you have played them in? Horizon 4 was my first and have now gone back to 2 as it was a Games with Gold I had in my backlog. It's a decent game but nowhere as good as 4 imo.
