  1. Hollywood vs. Streaming

    I can't tell if you're trying to sell me on the experience or put me off. The whole 12A rating is getting ridiculous. The content in them can range so much that you go from Pacific Rim which is basically Power Rangers to Kong Skull Island where someone is skewered through the mouth by a spider leg and slowly lifted into the air.
  2. Hollywood vs. Streaming

    Same here. I'm always amazed how washed out the cinema picture looks compared to my television. I'm currently having a tough time getting anyone to go see A Quiet Place with me. Everyone already resigned to the fact that the current cinema audience would ruin it for them and waiting for a home release. I really wish this had gone the way of Annihilation so I could sit in my house and be terrified of whatever is the equivalent of the nightmare bear.
  3. Radical Heights - First update now live

    It is pretty fun. It reminds me of a cross between PUBG and Zombies in Spaceland from CoD. I also really like the grid system for closing the area in, a really smart way to have all these battles over different parts of the map meeting in the middle rather than everyone hugging the outside of the circle.

    What happened? I played a game, got a couple of kills and finished 9th. Seemed fine for an early access game for me.

    Q3A on the other hand is better than UT because they're very different games. I think I loved both of them equally so this nonsense must stop. Looking forward to giving this a go when it is released at 1700
  6. Nintendo Switch eShop

    Isn't it just Luftrausers but without the cool art style?
  7. Giant Bomb Fan Club

    I've had the same tracking issues that he suffers from. It's a real shame because the headset is such a neat piece of design, despite how bad the Move controllers are compared to the Vive or Oculus.

    Yah for not paying creators for the content they produce!
  9. Reading that review really helps me understand more where you're coming from as it feels like it was written by someone who's perhaps getting on a bit, falling out of touch and starting to long for the days of yesteryear. Yearning for the really not very good Jolie Tomb Raider films over Vikander's portrayel is nonsense? BRING BACK THE TITS! That review is almost as bad as the one on the BBC that was basically " bwaah hurrumph, back in my day our Lara's had tits. All of this was tits for days and we had fun watching these good hearted action films, not like these modern action films with their bike chases and stuff. Mm mm nurse bring me my candy". I look forward to getting there myself in the not too distant future.
  10. Mira Nair is Indian and the film didn't have that high a budget. Also I'd say releasing a film about a young Ugandan girl playing chess is hardly going to appeal to the mainstream.
  11. Please stop paying to see PR/IP branded content instead of actual movies. You're killing cinema. You were never really here was released this week.
  12. no it isn't. I also wonder if the rise of the Unlimited card has cheapened the movie going experience somewhat, whilst simultaneously helping to save it. More people willing to take a punt on something they though they might not have enjoyed but equally you'll have people being dragged to films they wouldn't pay for because it's free and just sit checking their phone because they didn't pay for it so they've lost nothing.
  13. A. Tomb Raider isn't shit. B. You moan about art house films being driven out of the cinema but isn't that the absolute worse place to see them? Not remotely on the same level as some of the films you've mentioned but I remember going to see Jarhead and during the almost silent scene where they're collecting the artifacts of the deceased all I could hear was the man behind me going to town on his popcorn. I'm not sure that's what the team behind the movie had in mind for that scene but I could be wrong. I'm sure I am one of the many cinema lovers who now only go and watch blockbusters on the big screen because that's where they look and sound best, even if you've got a great home cinema. The smaller more intimate films I can enjoy at home without a bunch of teenagers snapchatting away their boredom and my immersion. Cinema has changed because people have changed. For the absolute worst. On the other hand I got to watch Annihilation the day of release, in my home without and fucker to ruin my experience. So the death of cinema at least has some benefits.
  14. Pacific Rim is an amazing film. You're clearly deluded, have terrible taste and will be telling us how bad Speed Racer is next.
  15. Went to see this last night and thought it was really rather good. Could have done without the the obvious father daughter plot dragging it down but that's the only negative I would throw at it. Alicia Vikander is incredible as Lara and absolutely nails the character from the rebooted series.
