  1. I didnt think much of The Fabelmans. Glad Michelle Yeoh got an award though.
  2. I'm happy with the results. Just weird that Andor was nominated for lead actor and nothing else.
  3. I agree, he just quietly sidelined him and waited for him to implode.
  4. I really liked this one as well. Came out around the time of the 2010 world cup when everyone was complaining about the vuvuzelas.
  5. An absolute classic. One of the earliest YouTube memes (think it's almost as old as YouTube). Unfortunately the guy who made it died recently. RIP
  6. The Menu (2022) is a fun movie. You definitely want to go in knowing nothing about it.
  7. It was this kind of thing, the freebies and stuff that I was referring to, that I suspect in many cases makes critics reluctant to give bad reviews. I wasn't suggesting any of them are bribed. I also acknowledge that it's probably a small percentage of critics that are influenced by this stuff.
  8. Maybe, I've always been told I have a wild imagination. I was being hyperbolic. But the fact is a lot of critics do like their freebies. It's also just inexplicable how something like She-Hulk gets good ratings from critics. I think it's quite significant that a show costing 60 million per episode got no nominations, and I compared it to HOTD cause those are the two big fantasy shows that come out. IMO one highlighted how to do things right and the other how to do things wrong.
  9. I imagine Newcastle fans as people who've largely had it rough with the football club being one of the few things they have in life so I'd never deign to put the onus on them to abandon their club because of decisions made by higher-ups in suits.
  10. So more like the Daniel Craig version then? I think for film (which, let's face it, is where the majority know Bond from), Sean Connery demonstrates the qualities that people associate with the character, although my favorite is Brosnan.
  11. Pretty hard to hold moral high ground in the modern world. UK government sells Saudis weapons so no matter what you do you're implicated. Also it was the premier league that allowed the Saudis to buy the club. It wasn't up to Newcastle fans.
  12. Mission Impossible movies area fine but I love the British aspect of the Bond movies. And I love the classy aspect of the character vs the grittiness of Bourne and Ethan Hunt.
  13. This is totally not how I expected this to go. I was sure there was no coming back from Villa.
  14. Two strikers injured, the other two off form and 6 defenders on the bench. This is going to be ugly.
  15. No argument there. It's easy to talk shite when you're at the top of the league. One can always hope for the usual capitulation to occur though. Also if you think spurs fans aren't used to suboptimal transfer activity then you haven't been paying attention.
  16. I just did show an example. Just because you didn't type "I hate Newcastle's tactics" in bold and capital letters doesn't mean your bitterness isn't coming across strong.
  17. I must have imagined Spockydog the Smug referring to Newcastle's playing style as "rotational fouling and general shithousery" then.
  18. Weird I could swear there's been some "boohoo teams won't make it easy for us to beat them every week" nonsense.
  19. Ahahhah, "first sign of trouble". Our football has been unwatchable all season. Your medal is in the post.
  20. I've been supporting Tottenham since 13 years old and dealt with 25 years of mostly shite with the odd good phase here and there. I won't be called plastic by an Arsenal fan of all people.
  21. No ways, James Bond is the bestest And it's not like we have many male heroes to root for in films these days.
  22. Anyway I'm going to be skippi8ng our game tonight. I think I'm going to watch Lord of the Rings on Blu-ray instead. I haven't had any good feelings since Messi won the world cup.
