    Avengers: Endgame (April 2019) - no spoilers please

    I have read @Treble's toilet-timing guide and I'm going to risk it!

    Avengers: Endgame (April 2019) - no spoilers please

    Ticket for 09.30 screening, and I think I've woken up today with a mild stomach bug. I've had breakfast but I don't know if it'll stay down. If I have one, it'd be the first time in at least five years - of all the days for it to happen! Do I risk going? Or leave it today, see how I am and rebook for tomorrow? (The problem with that is that tomorrow morning's showings are also nearly packed...)
  3. I haven't read his review (not reading any of them!) but I saw this comment about what he gives away: I agree with that: being told about relatively mundane character interactions in advance can be as spoilery as knowing about major plot twists.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 - Massive Spoilers Thread

    Gahhh! And I checked the first few sentences of the first post in the spoiler thread to make sure that the text in the embedded post preview wouldn't include a spoiler - but I forgot to check the image!

    Red Dead Redemption 2 - Massive Spoilers Thread

    Sorry, I did a thread title search for "Redemption" to see if there was a spoiler-friendly thread to post it but I only saw this one, the online thread, and lots of trading threads. So I decided to post it here with a bold warning. Turns out I didn't find the story spoiler thread because it has "RDR2" in the title. Should I delete my post above and repost it in that thread? Or can a mod move it?

    Red Dead Redemption 2 - Massive Spoilers Thread

    Film Crit Hulk has written a novel-length article about this game. It does have major story spoilers for events all the way to the ending, but in general the criticisms of the mechanics are in the first half of the article; the criticisms of the story in the second: https://www.polygon.com/2019/4/22/18298277/red-dead-redemption-2-review-rdr2-story-design-criticism

    Dark Souls Remastered

    For me Dark Souls is indelibly linked to one piece of music:

    The first one is by far the worst one

    I only played the first Forza game briefly, but my impression was that it was essentially a clone of Gran Turismo 3 but with the addition of custom decals and the Nurburgring.

    @charley farley Another chaotic shoot involving Marlon Brando, which like Apocalypse Now got its own Making Of documentary:

    XIII Remake, Winter 2019

    I only played the PS2 version, but I liked it, and at one point vaguely intended to pick up a cheap copy of the Xbox version to replay it. It had really strongly magnetic auto-aim, as I recall - I'm not sure if that was just on the PS2, to counterbalance its infamous analogue sticks. For me the ranking of PS2 FPSs went, best to worst: TimeSplitters Future Perfect TimeSplitters 2 Cold Winter XIII Killzone Those first-person VR missions in MGS2 Substance with controls that no other FPS has used before or since

    Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. What was intended to be the behind the scenes Making Of turned into Lost in La Mancha, an excellent documentary about the ridiculous chain of events that prevented him finishing the film. And it's had more than its fair share of additional setbacks in the nearly 20 years since the documentary was released.
