  1. Gandalf vs the Witch King was also added to the Extended Edition. Which promptly crashed afterwards? Fantastic series though.
  2. Watched Babylon and thought it was mostly boring except for the Tobey Maguire segment. This movie did NOT need to be 3 hours. Also the ending just went on forever and I was like "I get the point, end already".
  3. So City are gonna get off with a slap on the wrist, right?
  4. I'm having a blast playing Goldeneye. So much nostalgia.
  5. I thoroughly enjoyed it although it was rather cheesy at times.
  6. Doesn't Microsoft own Rare? In which case Microsoft allowed Nintendo to use it, not the other way round. I only have xbox so I won't get the multiplayer unfortunately, but I'm looking forward to feeling some nice warm nostalgia from playing the single-player. That Facility mission was an absolute classic.
  7. I always feel a lot of sympathy for Everton 'cause like Tottenham they're a club with a grand history that hasn't won anything in ages.
  8. Might be considered controversial since the kingdom that the Agojie fought for sold a lot of the Africans it conquered to Transatlantic slave traders.
  9. The real question is how low will the ratings be for the Academy Awards this year? People getting so sick of seeing these sanctimonious Hollywood types celebrate themselves. If they want to boost their ratings they need to get someone irreverent like Ricky Gervais or Dave Chapelle to host ie. someone who will roast them and bring them back down to Earth. But instead it will just be another circle jerk.
  10. So far I've seen: The Banshees Of Inisheran: Excellent, fantastic script The Fabelmans: Boring Elvis: average; great performance from Austin Butler Top Gun Maverick: Best experience I've had in a cinema for a long time Everything Everywhere All at Once: Brilliant and highly original; a real mindbender All Quiet on the Western Front: Excellent Triangle of Sadness: Entertaining, didn't really think of it as Best Picture material though Disappointed RRR wasn't nominated for Best Foreign Film
  11. The Last Jedi was shit. Many Star Wars fanboys hated it because it shat all over the Star Wars mythology, but that's exactly because Johnson was hired, because Disney had no plan for the sequel trilogy and was willing to let any old hack have a shot at it regardless of whether they had cared about the story. TFA was also shit.
  12. The Banshees of Inisherin (2022) It lived up to the hype for me. Aside from the fact that I have to keep googling it to check how to spell the name, it's a great dialogue-driven film that really had me invested in the characters. I enjoyed it much more than its rivals The Fabelmans and Elvis. Still disappointed it wasn't about actual banshees though. 8/10
  13. https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11675/12791409/juventus-serie-a-side-given-15-point-deduction-as-tottenhams-fabio-paratici-handed-30-month-ban-from-italian-football Tottenham sporting director Fabio Paratici found guilty of fraud perpetrated during his time at Juventus and banned from all football activities in Italy. Ban may be extended to all football activities in Europe. With Tottenham, it never rains, it pours. An Inter-supporting friend of mine told me a year ago that Paratici was shit so I've always had my doubts and I guess this provides a convenient opportunity to get rid of him. But still kind of funny that Levy appoints a Director of Football and six months later the guy is convicted of Fraud. Levy has like the opposite of the MIdas touch.
  14. This is exactly the problem really. The game gives you an open world but very little freedom in how to navigate the story.
  15. Well he got the opportunity to write a Star Wars movie, which many people would do for free, and made it completely about himself and his own political views instead of respecting the Star Wars universe, And his Knive's Out movies are basically screaming "look how smart I am!"
  16. Well the batmobile is in the game and it was really fun driving it around the city at first but then you have to start using it to fight these tanks that the main villain is using and the level of skill required is beyond me. There's one part which took me about 45 minutes and I had to spend most of it hiding from the tanks and waiting to attack them from behind cause they blow you up in one shot. Then there's the stealth, which was a lot of fun in the first two games, but they've added in so many other things you have to contend with now, like automatic turrets and drones that just make it so much more difficult. Anyway I'm soldiering on with it cause it's a great story and I love the Batman character. It's just that Batman is supposed to be this super awesome, highly competent character and being him is supposed to make you feel cool but I just feel like I'm letting the character down cause I'm constantly dying.
  17. Why do the critics love Rian Johnson so much? I'll never understand it. Just one of the most pretentious, narcissistic directors around.
  18. This has become one of the best channels on YouTube.
  19. Arkham Knight has a great story but it's bloody difficult to the point where I've considered rage-quitting several times. The other two Arkham games were nowhere near this frustrating.
  20. Just finished the first season of Cobra Kai and it's brilliant. I'm completely hooked.
  21. I can't follow this whole thing, all I know is my D&D group is pissed off about it.
  22. That's an interesting take. Personally I'll stick my neck out and say that HOTD will get tonnes of Emmy nominations because it IS one of the best shows of the year. Why it's getting shut out of the Guild awards is beyond me, but like or hate the GG, more people pay attention to that than SAG.
  23. To be fair a lot of people have cultivated successful YouTube careers by doing this.
  24. Rings of Power predictably snubbed by SAG but House of the Dragon as well? Weird
