  1. Finished it. I really enjoyed it, especially the fact that they didn't fall prey to the usual deus ex machina tropes. Looking forward to season 2.

    Galaxy Quest

    Orville is fantastic, it's just a shame that the seasons are so short compared to TNG.

    Great scenes in disappointing movies

    I feel that there are several exceptional sequences in the film. Such a missed chance. Glad I watched it, though.

    Edge #323 25th Anniversary Edition

    Those covers are awesome @Dave White; I love the Mario one. I'd love to buy a print, it would make my soon-to-be 5 year old boy very happy ;-)

    Let us celebrate Edge's 25th Anniversary

    Been on the Edge forum since 1997, back when it was an nntp server (newsgroup). I kinda wondered in after coming from the PC Plus and VGJ / gamesradar forums. I'm 38 now. Frightening really. I can't remember when I first started buying Edge; I think that it was in 1996 after I started working, and after Commodore Format finally closed. I was faithful until 2006 when I left the UK. Since then I've bought about 2 issues a year on average; I don't really follow gaming as much as I used to now.
  6. So they can earn ad dollars via the piratebay? Or something.

    Thor: Ragnarok

    Watched this for the first time last night. It was really good; unlike the first two films it had an engaging plot and humor. Like most modern action movies it had the ADHD stuff and looks more like a computer game than a movie; but that's par for the course nowadays.
  8. Wow Ragnarok was excellent, you'd almost believe that it was a reboot compared to the other films. Now Thor and Hulk in Infinity War make a lot more sense (especially Hulk).
  9. He's not? Why the references to the Avengers and X-men?
  10. Oh damn. The first one was terrible, like Green Lantern bad. The second one wasn't super so I gave up on the series. With these reviews I'm gunna download it then rewatch this. I've seen all of the MCU films (including Deadpool 2; I made sure to watch that before Infinity War) except the last Thor film; and it was indeed the Thor related stuff which was confusing.
  11. Ahahah so that's why I thought Infinity War was an ADHD mess of a film; I skipped Ragnarok because the Thor films are just plain pants. I spent the first hour of the film on wikipedia trying to work out who the characters were; wtf happened to Thor's hair and why does Captain America look like a hobo?

    Anime recommendations

    I'd recommend watching these too, they're all rated 10/10 in my anime list: Erased: Beautiful story about a guy who goes back in time to save a childhood friend. https://myanimelist.net/anime/31043/Boku_dake_ga_Inai_Machi. Tenga Toppa Gurren Lagann: my number 1 anime of all time, it's a masterpiece. You need to watch other anime first to get it, it's not a starts series. Beck: Boy starts a rock band. Music is excellent and I loved the story. Mushishi: story about a guy who heals problems caused by spirits, it's kinda realistic fairy tale. enchanting and beautiful.One Piece: tbh just read the manga, it's the best Shonen series so far. Cowboy Bebop: thankfully you've seen it so you know how awesome it is. Monster: my number 2 anime of all time; it'd be number 1 but I can't help grinning like an idiot when watching Gurren Lagann ..and a few other which you might like.. ONE PIECE: read the manga. everyone should. Naruto: manga is great but the production quality of the anime is way better than One Piece.. in my memory. Megalobox: boxing in the future, tribute to a 50's classic but it holds up great on its own. Little Witch Academia: very sweet story in a Harry Potter world, by one the best studios.Mob Psycho: by the same author as One Punch Man, this is imho better than OPM. Turn-A Gundam: my fav gundam series, though it's a bit ugly. Kids fighting in mechas. Win. Full Metal Panic: really really good mecha series, start from the beginning. the latest series has just finished airing and there will be more to come.

    Anime recommendations

    I'd highly recommend all of these; just leave Madoka until near the end. Start with the films (suffixed with F). I'll post some more in a second, can't get this post formatted correctly

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    That's because doing something fancy against League Two defending doesn't work. They just kick / wrestle you from the park.
