    this film is defeating me. I can't take no more inane gibberish, my brain is refusing it and shutting down to preserve its sanity. ONE HOUR TO FUCKING GO. I've had days at work in a job i hated go quicker than this. I feel like I've been stamped on repeatedly by a large foot and can only slither out of bed. I don't know how Kermode mustered enough energy to express his hatred for it.

    Watching this now. (The film, not the review). Little White Lies podcast were really positive towards the film but their reasons just seemed to be: videogames. I know that makes no sense but neither were they. I'm 40 minutes in and have 1 hour 40 minutes left and would rather spend that 1 hour 40 minutes doing anything else. The film is like someone telling you a really crap dream they had that they're only bothering to share because the conversation has dried up. It's the kind of film I'd recommend purely for reasons of: i suffered this, why should you get away with not having to endure it.

    Toy Story 4 - June 2019

    My favourite thing about Toy Story and especially 2 were the scenes when they have to tackle the enormity of the real world. Toy Story 3 felt kind of inert to me because it lacked that dimension to it. This again has a get from point a to point b plot but...i'm not feeling it. I don't think Pixar can do sequels that don't largely feel redundant. I think a large part of the appeal of their films is the world building and humour, not necessarily the characters. I like Woody but i don't watch that trailer and think; i can't wait to spend more time with Woody. I loved Finding Nemo but didn't care to spend the sequel with Dory even though i found every scene with her in Finding Nemo to be endearing rather than annoying. I think Toy Story 2 should have been their one and only sequel exception. It feels fresh in a way none of their other sequels have. The opening sequence is superb, the references to Darth Vadar are inspired. The new characters are unpredictable, the villain being one of if not the best bad guy they've come up with, sinister but genuine with understandable motivations and not just there to drive the plot. So much of the film feels like the writers had a lot they wanted to expand on the idea (i love them crossing a road) and less like financial necessity. You compare it to other Pixar sequels and there's never that sense there were other ideas they were dieing to pursue. They scale them down back to the characters. Monsters University, Finding Dory, Incredibles 2 all felt underwhelming. They focussed on the characters and forgot the genesis of the idea of all those films. They could have delved deeper into each world but focussed on completely new, different characters, in a way that sits separate from the original and is its own thing, rather than this very polished but familiar thing.
  5. De Caprio looks exactly like that in 97% of films and 97% of life for the last 17 years. And am for one sick of it. They're combining the kill bills again for that 9th film stuff.

    Rage Against The Machines first ever gig

    That's awesome. Imagine just passing by and hearing those riffs, distinctive voice and strong now iconic songs and not being able to process how they're so brilliant yet you've never heard of them before, and this nothing setting is so out of sync. That's what art should do. Be a culmination of a lifetime of passion condensed into something expressed with as much ferocity as possible that it lands on you like a bomb, and suddenly the medium explodes with possibilities. This is not a first performance but is their first tv performance, I went back to it recently and was stunned by their energy and speed, absolutely playing out of their skin like it's the last performance they'll ever give. low sound doesn't help though https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWRl0QSMPG4 vid not embedding

    This is basically Greed: The Movie.

    Should have snatched Giroud perhaps.

    PES 2019

    I just play online divisions. I like the idea of myclub, well just the building credit to buy players bit, but not how it's implemented. There has to be a reason why it isn't played by people. I don't like that myclub has games against the AI either. Just reading about myclub it's so convoluted and complicated. Master League with its transfers and ways to improve youth players was always pretty simple. Online divisions still engages me, picking a team I've never used, like Holland, and applying my current favourite formation to see how the players fare with it. Changing player positions endlessly and pin pointing players to play through. Trying different attack and defence tactics even though I'm never sure how they alter the play, like how condensed or spread out you can make your defence when without the ball, or choosing defence focussing centrally or wide.

    PES 2019

    That doesn't sound right. Never happens to me. Maybe a few times at 6am.
  11. I hope Kevin Spacey has a part in the film but is in such heavy prosthetics you can't tell it's him and in the credits his name appears under a pseudonym and then weeks later people start digging and then find out and feel disgusted they enjoyed a silly space film with an actual molester in and then boycott the film even though it's too late and it doesn't matter anymore nothing matters we're all going to die

    PES 2019

    Could never get Crystal Palace to work. Lost every game pretty much. Putting Zaha as the centre forward seems to change everything, he seems to be the best player in the game. He's so lethal. Not in his national team though annoyingly. Can never get the best out of players with insane stats like Salah and Messi. The game is about power and pace, being quick on the turn, Messi is near invisible in every game i play. I move him around everywhere. Yet Sterling is also ridiculously good, hyperactive with his runs. Another rivetting pes online update.

    What is with people being part of a Jordan Peterson fan club? It feels like everyone is on a big wind up. yeah this guy here rambles on about shite but heh look he also says people should take responsibility for themselves huh huh i so believe in that that's such cutting edge thoughts I'll probably watch this because it's JC Chandor, I loved Margin Call and A Most Violent Year, although this doesn't seem like inspired material really.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    2011 doesn't seem too near. He might just really hate Churchill and by the train scene couldn't take much more.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    Clearly not someone who chose his 11th birthday party to be to watch Speed 2 with friends at the cinema. I think I watched the trailer and saw that er that doesn't look like Keanu fuck it excited anyway. Avatar and Tron Legacy still probably outbore it in terms of cinema watches though.
