    I like the music, it's not something I'd buy or generally listen to but it works and I presume that if you can't even vaguely get into the beat of it you're fucked though. DDR for the modern age really, it just works brilliantly well. One standout being the Moves which are often derided but work perfectly here as far as I'm concerned, plus the feedback you get when you cross the sabers together is so incredibly pleasing.

    A movie watchers blog

    Atomic Blonde (2017) An undercover MI6 agent is sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents. Charlize Theron and James McAvoy star in this spy "caper" based on a graphic novel it seems where Theron is the Ice cold MI6 agent sent to Berlin to investigate the murder of her lover and to get the same mcguffin that they needed in the original mission impossible movie. These lists must get thrown together at the same time the shopping one is done. Anyway what follows is a game of cat and mouse as Broughton(theron) digs into the Percival (McAvoy) who seems less than snow white in his approach to the cold war divide.Eddie Marsan, John Goodman and Toby Jones are also in it as various supporting characters and it shows the strength of the movie that such quality are happy in bit parts. I mentioned in the dedicated thread a few years ago that the action looked a little unconvincing as you could see Theron not connect with her punches and while it may be true it's a silly thing to bring up as unless you're really looking for it you wouldn't notice. Fights in this are brutal , long and very well done- there's a level of apparent physicality that eclipses the Bourne movies because is shot steady and you can see every thrown punch, kick and stab. The story is pretty straightforward and just keep the characters moving on to each new action set piece. Theron and McAvoy are both great as the deadly ice maiden and sleazy broker MI6 agents respectively with McAvoy especially looking like he's enjoying himself. All in all a fantastic action movie the with Theron proving between Mad Max Fury road and this that she is fantastic in action roles. 4.5/5

    Which ones Cheerleader
  13. OK, Tobal is my suggestion. I can't see it winning, though. We could stick some high-scoring runners up from last month's poll into this month's contest if we need more options.

    Boo. I've got work on the Monday. Hurry the hell up and get it done in an hour. Not sure exactly what I'm after from them, but wouldn't mind a bit of Crackdown 3 DLC.

    I was really put off by how generic the music seemed to be in Beat Saber - a rhythm game really depends on its music, do the unique aspects make it less of a problem?
  17. No more digital sales of Drive Club soon.

    That’d be a great signing to be fair.

    The Evil Within 2 - Welcome to Resident Hill

    I paid a fiver for this and got as far as the open world. It reminds me a lot of Resident Evil Revelations 2. Which is bad. The opening walking simulator section with the moving curtains, time distortions and subsequent boss tease were suitably surreal and nightmarish - the highlight being the room of hanging bodies. Creepy. That’s what I wanted from the game. Sadly... It steals mechanics from superior games to artificially lengthen and add “depth” to it’s playtime. The environments are last-gen, largely empty and cumbersome to navigate. The shooting of enemies etc is basically Resi 4, but in a package nowhere near as good. I hate the attempt at TLOU stealth (and I loved it in TLOU). The story and mish mash of derivative influences is really confused - I don’t think the game has a clear identity. I like the open world idea, I like the nightmare sequence idea, the memory machine etc but it does not hang together. Who are the people supposedly dying in this machine? Simulated people made from memories? The characters are low effort and outside of set pieces, the production values are low budget. On top of that it’s another Bethesda title giving me motion sickness, so... nope. I gave up on Resi Rev 2 and I give up on this. Don’t wanna waste 20 hours of my time with substandard derivative gameplay for some brief visually creative set pieces. Better off replaying Resi 4.

    Formula One - 2019 Season

    I remember thinking before the Schumacher years, how it was possible that Ferrari hadn’t won a championship in what seemed like forever. It doesn’t seem like such a mystery now, since if one team gets on a roll, that’s it until then next rules change. There never seems to be any catching up.
  21. I’m going to add in something from the PS1 I think. How about Klonoa or Pandemonium? Keep ideas coming as we need to put a poll up by around Tuesday to give it a few days before Friday.

    Formula One - 2019 Season

    They need to look at it, for sure. The thing is that as an F1 fan I’ve loved Sky’s coverage, but even for me it’s gotten too expensive and this season I am only able to watch as my brother has Sky and has given me one of his two Sky Go device spaces. If that hadn’t happened, this would have been the first season since 1988 that I wouldn’t have watched live. Liberty should also consider looking at their schedule and making one or two race weekends a season completely free-to-watch on YouTube or Twitter. I’m not convinced free-to-air TV is quite as valuable these days. Two free race weekends, access to the full library of F1 race highlights since F1 took over the broadcasting rights (which was 1981 I think), lots of documentaries and charge £9.99 a month or something and I’m there. The really frustrating thing about this season is that I am convinced if Ferrari were running the W10 and Merc the SF90 then it’d be pretty damn close. I just can’t get over how insanely useless Ferrari have been. They’ve got a great car, great power unit, two good drivers, still get a bonus payment from the FIA for just being Ferrari, still have a rules veto, still have a huge chunk of their budget and all of their driver salaries paid for by a cigarette company 13 years after cigarette advertising was banned fully from the sport (and somehow get away with the Mission Winnow shit) and they still can’t fucking win anything.

    Just enjoyed the Bill Shankly Nature’s Fire documentary on BBC iPlayer. It’s available for another 21 days if you’ve not watched it. He made the people happy #YNWA

    A movie watchers blog

    Time Bomb (2006) Terrorists have planted bombs in a Washington football stadium and are demanding $100million. Can they be stopped? TV movie that doesn't even try to avoid the usual cliches, in fact I suspect when they wrote this they brainstormed every known cliche going: - Shot of Washington DC from above with radio news telling us about a big event. - Law-enforcement father unable to make American football game due to terrorism. - Family just happen to be at the same place where terrorism is going to happen. - Football game in progress acts as heavy-handed metaphor for action going on elsewhere. - Devil-may-care bomb squad members banter. - Terrorists with dodgy unplaceable foreign accents. - Ball-breaking woman boss in her 50s on comms whilst wandering around HQ. - "We don't negotiate with terrorists" .... and there are more besides. You won't find anything remotely original here, but to its credit it is well put together, there's just enough twistiness in the plot to keep things ticking along, and whilst David Arquette is a woefully inadequate lead he isn't completely useless, it's just they could have got anyone else in and done a better job of it. If you've watched many of these sort of films before you may just get riled up enough to switch off, but less-demanding viewers will get a suspensful if hugely unoriginal watch. I'd recommend you check out something like Black Sunday or the even more similar Two Minute Warning, the original American-football-in-peril thriller.
