    Better Call Saul!

    Edit - ignore me, going mad.

    New Star Soccer 5 (PC/Mac/iOS/Android/Flash)

    Been playing this a lot, and agree with the criticisms of too many IAPs. I wish I’d read the thread before I paid to cut adverts out, seeing as it doesn’t. Annoying. But damn, it’s great fun.
  3. Just come back from seeing it myself. Also thought it was very entertaining, although

    Yup. RIP Bandit
  5. Are you making Latin-based puns Jon ?

    Jacqueline Pearce has passed away

    Me too.
  7. I only realised who he was this week. Also, Yaxley in Deathly Hallows, and the dad in Sunshine On Leith.
  8. I’m still liking the look of this, but

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    I thought the same. He senses her on the bridge of that ship, so presumed he would probably sense her in the caves at the end.

    League of Gentlemen

    Glad to hear it’s a good show, going in a couple of weeks.
  11. Lightning out of your fingers and force choke and crush, as well as all the powers Jedi are allowed to use ? Sounds pretty seductive to me ! Conjecture from me, but my assumption is that it’s easier to tap into these more powerful and/or destructive Force abilities using strong emotions as your anchor point than it is to “clear your mind...” and do it from a position of tranquility. From a simplistic point of view, why can you lift heavier weights after you psych yourself up and get yourself angry ? Since the Jedi don’t even allow love, I’m going to guess that any poweful emotion, negative or otherwise, helps you channel the Force more easily, and that extremely powerful emotions make your abilities stronger. I guess once you see what strong emotions can do for you, it’s easy to just fall into that trap and keep doing it, especially if it’s so much harder doing it the Jedi way (like Luke and his X-Wing). But you’re right, they sense these powerful emotions in Anakin at several points over the PT, and never really address it properly with him, or his teacher. Like “Mate, you were really angry when you slaughtered all those Tuskens the other day. Let’s have a chat about why that’s really bad, yeah?”. They just exclude him from all their plans, and as a result make him even more pissed off.

    The Meg - Jason Statham vs Giant Shark

    More incredulous at the lapse in certification. I guess I imagined it would have moved to a 15 because of the content when they changed from the old system, or at least a 12 when they introduced that in ‘89.

    The Meg - Jason Statham vs Giant Shark

    @HexxThe most ridiculous thing about Jaws is that it was a PG until 2012. The 1970s certificate A translated straight to PG until the introduction of the Cert 12, which I think was done specifically for Burton’s first Batman. Unfortunately, having set our Sky box to a “no ‘12’ or over” parental setting and thinking we were OK, you can imagine my surprise when I came into the room from cooking dinner to find my then 6-year old watching bloody Jaws.
  14. It might be that the fear of a social media backlash works in Gunn’s favour this time. I’m sure there are some potential directors who would’ve taken the job anyway, but are sitting there fearful of how much vitriol they’ll be getting online if they actually did.
