    The Umbrella Academy coming to Netflix

    Not really a spoiler but the framing of one of the bedrooms in Episode 3 had my wife and I instantly turn to each other and say "Edith Finch!" (The dancing scene from episode one seems to borrow from one of the Edith Finch trailers as well.)

    The Umbrella Academy coming to Netflix

    Some of the trailers atually put me off but the talk here convinced me to watch. It feels like X-Men crossed with Dirk Gently, loved the first episode, if i didn't have work tomorrow I'd watch the rest right now.
  3. How could I forget that? (I was never a big ET fan but it's a stone cold classic of the genre.) Regardless if they get the casting right Ghostbusters 3 will have a bright future even if it turns off those who enjoyed the original back in 1984.
  4. Stranger Things isn't a movie but it managed to hurdle the issue that a lot of movies / tv shows have when casting and writing kids as kids. There's a fine line with the intended audience between "I believe in this character" or "this character is cool" and "this is the worst casting ever" or "that kid is nowhere near as good as me, I could be better". Good call with Stand By Me (never seen The Gate and I'm never going to see It!.)
  5. It's such a fine line though. How many movies aimed at kids with kids in the leading roles actually work? The only ones I can think of off the top of my head are The Goonies, Stranger Things and at a stretch The Lost Boys.
  6. I think they’ve looked at the absolute mess that is the current fandom and thought “let’s target the next generation.” Because leaving gender politics out of it they’re on a hiding to nothing. If they make anything that deviates from the original movie they’ll get criticised, but stick too close and they’ll be accused of making a lazy remake. Far better to go for 13 year old kids who might fall in love with this and buy the merch rather than 40-50 year old dudes who’ve proven impossible to please.
  7. More Ghostbusters news. https://www.themarysue.com/ghostbusters-3-character-breakdowns/? As The Mary Sue pointed out, we've kind of already done this.

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

    There is now a co-op mode (on the Switch version) so you can play with your partner or if you're like my wife and I getting in each others way to get the treasure. It's brilliant.

    Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy

    Cheers, I thought this was the case. Edit: I think that giving him his own trilogy off to the side would please real fans and (appararently) non-fans like myself but what you say above makes sense.

    How many games can you keep on the go at one time?

    Three for me. One big narrative, RPG or AAA game. One short or small game. And Diablo 3 with my wife.

    Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy

    A bit of housekeeping. Can we please not have this degenerate into the negging and criticism of posters who didn't like The Last Jedi? Play the topic, not the poster.

    Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy

    I loved The Last Jedi but there were a couple of bits I would have cut. Anyway in lieu of a trailer...

    Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy

    Good news for me and the one other person who liked it, this is still getting made. https://screenrant.com/star-wars-rian-johnson-trilogy-canceled/ Thought we should split this out from the other threads.

    Gaming tropes that need to go away

    Having watched my wife play through parts of it many times it feels like Solas kind of deftly pushes this agenda along the way for reasons that become apparent later.
