  1. I was 4 when ESB was released and was brought to see it at the cinema- we got those icecream things that had a chewing gum ball at the bottom each(like a plastic cone filled with icecream) and mine was the only one without. So coupled with a downbeat ending I didn't understand and a disappointing ice cream scenario I've never really liked the movie despite it obviously being great.
  2. Aurora by KSR gave me some claustrophobia - it is generally set on a very large ship with various biomes as it were but I still got that enclosed feeling. It wasn't bad in general but has a standout final chapter (IMO) in regards something very simple and accessible for a lot of people that may not be appreciated by the majority of us.
  3. I got into the MP recently , it's good fun, the new Naboo map is quite good and the level of support from the developers seems pretty high. It's been a few years since I played online MP in anything and forgot how sucky being a n00b is, my KDR is still pretty poor even after a few weeks of relatively consistent play.
  4. Not finished the season yet- up to episode 5 but enjoying it so far- it's funnier than previous seasons.I quite enjoy the little Easter eggs and overt references / "inspiration" especially :
  5. This is destined for a 20-30% score on rotten tomatoes or the like but will be nowhere near as bad as it's made out to be. Still won't be good, mind.
  6. Bran the builder actually used the bodies of his slaves for his constructions....
  7. At which point we can say they myst the boat etc
  8. If they manage to make it as good as the 1st 3 seasons of GOT then I doubt anyone will care when it's set or what it's connected to. Look at Legion, I'd barely be able to draw the link between it and the wider x men universe based on the tone and style of the show, certainly for the 1st series( haven't seen the rest).
  9. Paddington 2 (2017) Paddington, now happily settled with the Brown family and a popular member of the local community, picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen and Paddington take the fall. So a bit of a different scenario this time with Paddington doing some time due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time . The architect of his downfall is a much more colorful if equally dastardly enemy Phoenix Buchanan , played by Hugh Grant who really puts the effort in and seems to be enjoying himself immensely. I have to say I preferred him to Kidman''s protagonist in the 1st, he's much more colorful and interesting , seems like a proper pantomime villain. There's also a much larger set piece for the finale which is good fun. I've quoted part of my previous review because I'm lazy and it holds as true for the sequel as the original movie: Neither logic nor cynicism hold too much sway in regards the plot and it trucks along with a who's/who of British actors all looking like they're delighted to be involved.There's lots of humor and heart and while it's obviously aimed at kids the missus and I thoroughly enjoyed it. 4.5/5
  10. Spoliers! Sorry, that's a joke. I loved the book- the horse drawn artillery and other details gave it such a sense of time and place.There was a lot to like about the movie, and to dislike, but the abrupt ending seemed true to the book.
  11. Paddington (2014) A young Peruvian bear travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he meets the kindly Brown family, who offer him a temporary haven. I was going to write a spoof spiel whereby Paddington loses his family and goes all Grizzly on the poachers that did it in this dark re-imagining of the Paddington story but a) that's not particularly funny and b) it would be a disservice to a movie that I can only describe as lovely. This basically is a relatively short introduction (90 mins)to Paddington and the brown family in London with some major/minor peril in the form of an evil Nicole Kidman who wants to stuff him and put him on display. Neither logic nor cynicism hold too much sway in regards the plot and it trucks along with a who's/who of British actors all looking like they're delighted to be involved.There's lots of humor and heart and while it's obviously aimed at kids the missus and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I knew that it was well received and should have seen it sooner. 4.5/5
  12. "Space game of thrones" was the opening in the pitch meeting and that was pretty much that I'd imagine.
  13. Folau launches legal action against RA for unfair dismissal I thought they canned him on the entire hate speech thing so I'm not sure he has a leg to stand on here , i'd imagine there's something about social media and all that in his contract- even if it was his personal account(?).
  14. I've yet to watch the last episode but have to say that the cast, regardless of what people think of the plot, have done some cracking work, and Clarke's walked the line on the sanity angle really well for Daenerys IMO.
