  1. When I heard it was in 3D I did die a little, but having seen how beautiful Beyond a Steel Sky looks, and getting the distinct vibe that it is a combination of tradition point and click puzzles AND Witness style puzzles I WANT IT IN MY EYES AND EARS.

    Days Gone - Sons of Anarchy x Last of Us

    My hope is it will be this generations Alan Wake - a bit janky, no brand new mechanics that really push the envelope, but a beautifully crafted world full of atmosphere that hooks you right in regardless.

    Deadwood Film - 1st June Sky Atlantic

    Having watched that trailer, I'm now going to have start speaking and thinking again in the voice of Al Swearengen. That's all I have to say on that subject, except next round's on the house. And pussy's half price, next 15 minutes.

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    Give Tarantino a $3 million budget and a plot written by someone else and he would make a cracking film.
  5. Why didn't they call it 'Terminator: No Fate' in keeping with Sarah's mantra? So much better.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    Just for the record - I've tried to watch the film twice, so my expectations definitely weren't dashed the second time. And I'm generally quite happy to have my expectations dashed if they are replaced with something good. But the film is (IN MY OPINION) just a mess of weird skits full of thoroughly dislikeable people with very little to say for themselves. There's this cold hatred that just permeates the thing, which is fine, but it has nothing to say, or at least nothing I could discern. It felt like I was watching a precocious teenagers musings on his narcissist parents. And how he wants to bang chicks. Also by the way I NORMALLY LOVE KUBRICK HARD.

    Eyes Wide Shut is so weird and boring and depressing that I've never managed to watch it all the way to the end. If 'worst' involves expectation over reality, then it has to be this. Stanley Kubrick making a film about sex and sex cults starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, oh my God yes.... actually no, no thank you.

    The Man Utd Thread

    I think there is an obviously huge element of 'emotional fatigue' after the PSG game, but this still made for a very worrying performance to my eyes. It took about 40 minutes for there to be a coherent run of passes from one end of the pitch to the other, and this was mostly because the midfield was awful today. Poga played very badly (for him) Matic was unrecognisable from his pre-injury days, and Fred, while perfectly good at chasing the ball, makes utterly baffling decisions when he has possession. Young and Shaw bombing down the wings was pretty much the only solid way of getting Arsenal on the back foot, which left us very vulnerable to the counter, and also really predictable and easy to contain. Basically that midfield doesn't work. I want McTominay back.

    Here's to Louis Theroux!

    Pretty clear to me that Saif is the complete American psycho.

    After Life - Ricky Gervais

    Gervais' chimp joke is specifically referenced around 6:30 but you should really watch it all.

    Of course he’s got the job. It literally can’t have gone any better. Even his one loss just made the win on aggregate even sweeter. Why aren’t they announcing it? Only reason I can see is they’re scared of jinxing it.

    Gary appears to have surged past happiness and pushed into full on horny.

    Rashford is so immense. After playing 90mins on that ankle against Liverpool I thought he'd be done for the season but look at him soar. Love the fact we have two youth players being part of tonight as well as loads of former players in the stands. The Premiership is so mercenary these days. It's so rare to have players loyal to a club for life and really hunger for the top trophies. It's nights like tonight that will produce the next legends.

    Smalling and Young were brilliant. So was Shaw. Defensively they are remarkably solid right now and it's a fantastic foundation. But in possession we were poor. We never looked in control. The amount of wayward passes, and outright kamikazee passes was mad - as well as making countless chances PSG were also given a hand full of chances to kill the game. But they didn't take them. OH WELL! Yes they did. They created loads. Hit the post. Shit tonne of crosses into the box. Corners. Neat through balls. BUT WHO CARES NO TIME FOR LOSERS.

    I mean, if Ole did this with a full first team I'd still need to sit down and pinch myself a bit and maybe have a shot of whiskey to stop my heart bursting out of my chest. But to do it with Fred in midfield with two boys who look young enough to be turned away from certain roller-coasters is just full on 'I ate a bag of mushrooms and now I can choose which dimension I live in' bat shit amazing. Fuck you Charles. Ole to be the new heir to the throne.
