  1. I started watching Patriot which was pretty interesting. Not sure why I stopped actually. The Looming Tower is excellent if only a few episodes long. Not sure it’s a Prime original but I’ve only seen it on Prime. The Expanse but I imagine you knew that one. Tales From the Loop is worth a look. Upload is actually pretty good. Lightweight fluff although has its moments.
  2. The Talented Mr Ripley It’s probably been nearly 20 years since I watched this. It popped up on Netflix so decided to give it a whirl as remember really liking it. It still holds up really well. Beautifully shot and very well acted. Jude Law really was a beautiful man - perfectly cast as the spoilt, wealthy playboy. Matt Damon is fantastic as the outsider looking through the window to another world. Definitely worth a revisit. 4/5
  3. Has no one said The Regular Show yet? Used to love watching that with the kids. Genuinely funny.
  4. Difficult watch tonight. Not to take away from an overall great performance in the tournament but feel Southgate should have adapted the team sooner tonight. It’s almost as though that early goal wasn’t in the plan so we weren’t sure what to do. Defending a 1-0 for 89 mins was never going to cut it. Italy got the chance to have loads of ball and were far more comfortable on it for most of the game. I just hope the media doesn’t give too much stick to the penalty takers. The set up seemed a bit odd with Southgate selecting the takers and it appeared rather chaotic. On balance the better team won on the night but it could have gone either way during normal time
  5. Well I’m thankful for so many of you guys saying how absolutely abysmal this was as with my expectations so low I actually was slightly pleasantly surprised. I mean it’s brainless nonsense and super obvious replete with every action sci-if trope you could think of but the action scenes were decent and I thought the alien design was pretty cool - if hugely derivative like almost everything else in the film. A good hangover movie.
  6. Big fan of the LaoGanMa crispy chilli here too and tried the Black Bean one earlier. Even better! Although very different things obv.
  7. I find 5 Guys variable. Sometimes a horrible soggy mess and others pretty ok. Would much rather an Honest any day of the week although appreciate they’re not quite the same idea.
  8. Thought was an ok episode with the two Loki’s sounding each other out but also agree that the setting and fx were a bit ropey at times. The inhabitants were certainly generic sci-fi to the max and the random encounters probably the most video game RPG yet! Stage 1 - avoid meteorites and get to cover. Stage 2 - find energy source. Encounter with NPC who directs you to train Stage 3 - Get onto train via misdirection. Random NPCs in rags complaining about rich people wearing futuristic pantaloons. Stage 4 - Fight on train - make way on foot to final destination Stage 5 - Find path to shuttle whilst city collapses around you. Stage 5 was a mess. My wife asked what was going on. They seemed to wander around in circles having badly choreographed fights with badly dressed generic guards. Still looking forward to the next episode but definitely felt like a drop in quality. Sylvie was good though.
  9. I couldn’t stomach it. I mean it’s riveting stuff but found the violence just too much. Stopped about half way into it and haven’t gone back.
  10. Also a simple tomato and onion salad is incredible but as a side/ accompaniment to something else. Hard to find really decent tomatoes I find. Folks live in Valencia, Spain and the local tomatoes are something else. Massive misshapen things but the flavour is incredible.
  11. I do a similar one but simpler inspired from a Spanish salad. Posh Spanish chickpeas from the glass jar drained and rinsed (they are a cut above the standard tinned ones), really good tuna like yours above or glass jar again, red onion, some really good tomatoes cubed. Olive oil and some Sherry vinegar (red or white wine will do) and plenty of salt. Banging lunch with a few nice Italian crackers. If I’m feeling a bit dirty I’ll even put some Frank’s in which is a shame given the ingredients but it works v well!
  12. Yeah I’ve been surprised at the ease of use of the Kamado Joe and also how amazingly efficient it is. I’d watched so many YouTube vids on it and they make everything sound so complicated but it’s actually very intuitive. Easy to light and pretty quick to get up to temp. Flavour wise it’s fantastic - even if not using smoking wood everything gets a great bbq flavour and it defo retains the moisture. With leftover charcoal from Sat I chucked on some chicken wings on Sunday. Got it up to 260c, heat deflectors on and 30 mins later done. Not much more hassle than sticking in the oven but way tastier and, like you say, much better to cook outside. Basically it’s just a very versatile oven.
  13. Did some amazing smoked ribs this weekend using some maple smoking wood and MeatLabCo Pigasus rub. Best ribs I’ve ever tasted! Also did a couple of large bits of bavette. Opened up all the vents after the ribs and was up to 700 F within 10 or so mins. I forgot to do after pics as was too busy eating!
  14. I’m mostly joking but it was also mainly done for… But it did make me chuckle given how similar the aesthetic is to Last of Us.
  15. I think I probably would have enjoyed it more had i not watched it as part of a double bill. It’s a very different film in tone to the first one. It never really felt like there was as much jeopardy and there were some silly inconsistencies such as Also, (and I guess not much they can do about this) since it picks up immediately following the end of the last film, the boy has grown up a lot in the intervening 5 minutes. Like his voice has broken and he’s a teenager. I’ll watch the next one as I’m curious but there was no need for a sequel really.
