    Killing Eve - BBC Spy thriller, comedy, drama

    Comer for all the awards. The ones she not eligible for she can steal and maybe bludgeon a security guard with.

    Forgotten bangers

    Skynet add on campaign was even better. Would really love a modern take on this. A modern FPS Terminator game could be just what the franchise needs with all the awful recent films.
  4. You Were Never Really There. Sicario. Beast.
  5. Who Framed Roger Rabbit? It was the first time I'd seen a film in the cinema without an adult - just me and my friend from primary school. We were both 10. I had no real idea what I was watching. I laughed so hard at the opening (where the baby suddenly starts talking like a grown up after the scene) that my friend got embarrassed and told me to shut up. As a big cartoon fan the whole thing was magical to me - the way cartoon and real, old and new, WB and Disney characters just intermingled, had lives of their own. T'was like a dream. I still remember that poor shoe, and the sultry singing of Jessica Rabbit, and those butterfly lips, like it were yesterday.

    Better Call Saul!

    It's like putting ice cream on a steak.

    Better Call Saul!

    I mean, can you imagine Kim interacting with them? They are from another fucking drama dimension.

    Better Call Saul!

    I really don't think the twins fit the Better Call Saul universe at all. Even within the Breaking Bad world they hung on to the extreme end of the pulp fiction storylines, but in the more sombre and cerebral tone of this they just stick out like a sore thumb. Really wish they'd fuck off from an otherwise wonderful show.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    I can't help but love angry wanker Jose. He's just so doggedly miserable and paranoid and aggressive, but also so vulnerable. Like as if Charlie Brown smoked loads of dope and then injected testosterone. I think Jose is going to be forced to make friends with the failure demon this season, and it's going to make him a better man (not hard), and the team a more solid and dogged group of players. But beyond not playing Herrera in a back three (!), Jose really needs consistency in the team so players can start instinctively knowing who is going to be where. The amount of times they just took slightly too long on the ball where a one-touch pass was on, or had to check who was running where - that was the difference between conceding possession and getting a shot on target about 20 times today.

    Better Call Saul!

    I think it was primarily guilt that made Kim cry - guilt at assuming Chuck was going to be an asshole to Jimmy in the letter and guilt at nearly never letting him read it. But then also relief that it wasn't another attack on Jimmy after all. And finally a good dose of sadness at a sibling relationship that went so wrong, and how hard Jimmy has become about it.
  11. Maybe with the ongoing Putin/Trump and Novichock scandals Boyle's film - with it's focus on some Russian uber-villain - was considered too hot potato.

    Better Call Saul!

    What an amazing episode. I think my favourite Better Call Saul ever. Just one humdinger of a scene after another. Jimmy is angry and bitter and has lined up those interviews like a cat collecting wounded mice. He will lay petty vengeance on those too stupid to see him coming.

    The Last Of Us

    @gossi the dog Do NOT play Left Behind before Last of Us. Jesus Christ. You'll ruin some of the best story videogames have ever told if you do that.
