  1. Such a cliche but I think it’s a remarkable show. Season six had aired and finished before we saw a single episode but we didn’t stop (episode a night usually) til we caught up. I think after Doctor Who and House that’s more TV than anything I’ve watched. the mistake I made was thinking it was fantasy, but it isn’t, it’s politics, and people, and it’s witty and nasty and counter to most people I think it’s only got better as it’s gone on i cant stand the fat dude, always groan when he comes on screen, but everything else is simply awesome. [pompous]”Ned Stark was a man of honour.” [withering] “well I am not.” always loved that exchange

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Second time of watching, as before was quite enjoying it until the train set piece, then it was “mynok roast” and “open a cantina, somewhere warm” eugh. that’s not dialogue. To think old Kasdan was aghast at Lord and Miller changing his script. So we got this.

    I just watched this again cos knew the missus would love it. 20 years ago this would have been perfect for Tom Cruise, hard to think of anyone but these two could pull it off really great movie, love the script
  4. I cannot stand Will Ferrell in anything aside from the Lego movie and Austin Powers cameos
  5. Nobody’s saying it can’t work, only in these instances it didn’t. A lot of people thought Thor was a triumph but that’s why we can’t have nice things.
  6. To anyone else that thinks Kate McKinnon isn’t funny or Kristen Wiig

    I asked the question when I came to S3 and was advised just carry on you’ll be fine, and I was defenders was shocking
  9. Agree entirely, and regarding Thor Raganarok too. It wasn't charming, it was 60s Batman, and in time it will age about as well

  11. I presume you are only talking movies here, so you haven’t seen any SNL? Also, what are you saying 'god no' to .. ?
  12. I've long believed the cost of exclusivity is because people want to separate themselves as much as possible. It's never about "the best food" as this Fyre flyer put it, it's about catching those for whom no amount of money is a barrier to showing they are better than others, which often means just not being within touching distance I get in arguments occasionally with the misses about first class on airplanes, for me it's like if you painted a square on the ground and charged people to get into it, it's no less absurd than a VIP tent at a festival - it's just the crazy idea that for a few fleeting hours that cubic foot of air becomes something transcendental that only money can gain you access to and somehow elevate you above others

    OI AM AN F-B-OI AYGENT. YOU SLAAAGG Hairy Bob on a surfboard. What a missed opportunity.
  14. I wish I could like this several times. Last weekend, we went to the Autosport show in Birmingham, had the guy who does F1 commentary who’s a bit of a knob but hey ho, then he had two people in support, one a leather clad blonde who appeared to know nothing at all about motorsport The other - the other was an ‘internet influencer’ called Schmee. He was early middle aged, dressed very sports casual. He too seemed to know nothing, being shoehorned in at pre agreed scheduled interviews where he literally did nothing except drive a mclaren road car very slowly i don’t follow you tube personalities but I at least expected a silly voice, or someone who wouldn’t shut up, but it was more like the guy from the Rover dealership in the Knowing Me Knowing Yule Christmas special as for Fyre, $100,000 for a ticket? There should be more of these scams, designed specifically to separate cash from the rich an stupid then distributed to those who need
