    Pictionary XL

    Sorry for giving you the run around BlackBear & everyone. I vastly over-estimated my ability to commit to this game (and my internet connection). That's my bad, I shouldn't have ruined it for the rest of you. Hope the rest goes okay.

    Sorry guys, work and stuff. Shouldn't have put it off! Sending it in now.

    Is there a theme or can I just go nuts?
  5. Eragon is pretty bad. I mean, the source material is hardly top tier fantasy so it's not really that surprising that the film sucked, but this film doesn't even appeal to the readers of the series. Surprisingly, it has a fairly stacked cast, and even the at-the-time newcomers (lead two characters) have gone on to appear in successful tv shows. Plus Jeremy Irons, Rachel Weisz, Robert Carlyle, Djimon Hounsou, John Malkovich...I mean, the only one of those who was remotely entertaining was Irons' Brom. All in all just a bad, forgettable fantasy film of the mid-2000s. The only noteworthy things about it really is the popularity of the series it's based on (hopefully not so popular that they try and reboot it again), and the cast.

    What's up First. Yeah, I haven't been around much, still trying to avoid GoT spoilers for when TWOW is released. Also adulthood I still frequent the forum chat though. Well, what's left of it anyway...

    Sure, but be warned my artistic skills haven't improved in the last however many rounds.

    Tennis Volume 7: Roger That!

    Eh, I agree with BigFatCoward. Murray is the weakest member of the big four, but he's a valid member because he is really quite competitive in every tournament other than GS level. Stan is the only other member in the conversation, but there's a reason he's classified as the Stanimal, not the Big Five. His top level is comparable or even superior to Murray's, but his consistency is not at all the same and that sets him apart even more. So in 10 years I'm pretty sure I'll still be happy reflecting on this era as being the Big Four + Stanimal. And Fed will still be winning slams then anyway, probs. Anyway, it's nice to see the Tennis thread on the first page of Entertainment rather than having to check like 7 pages back for it.

    Exercise and Fitness: sticking to resolutions

    Well, I'm 4 out of 6 weeks through the C25K. Again. What a piss take. I think I must have some sort of unrealised love for this programme, given how many times I've done it now. 7 months off after my running early last year did not do wonders for my body, and neither did spending all of my money on food/alcohol in that period. In my defense, there were some real life justifications for that. Not many, but some...probably. Anyway, other than being fairly unsurprised by my newly terrible pace, I am actually pretty pleased with myself at how well I've been doing. If not in terms of speed, then definitely in commitment. With no outside "encouragement", I've had zero issues motivating myself to get up and run at all hours of the morning. Eating sort of healthily, even cutting back (no, really) on drinking. It's been a month, and I can see some changes already. Another two more like this and I'll be as fit as the previous year. Well, nearly.

    Tennis Volume 6

    Man, I wish I could have seen this match. Absolutely incredible that Federer has taken another Slam at 36. He is nearly twice as old as Rafa was when he won his first RG.

    Tennis Volume 6

    Haven't been able to watch anything this year due to work, but I'm up nice and early today so I've put the Fed/Gasquet match on. My thoughts on the tournament so far: - Shame Delpo is out, but I am glad for Berdych getting a good win in. - Djokovic seems to be playing really well and I'm really enthused about that (for the first time ever) - this year the AO has arguably the 3 best tennis players of all time, seemingly in form and uninjured. It's feels like it's been a while since we've had that. - Kyrgios really shining so far is also good to see. - I wish I'd seen that Davis/Halep match everyone seems to be talking about.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Ringing in 2018

    I just watched Bright on Netflix. While not amazing, I did think it was pretty fun. The film has uninspired writing and action, but I think the awesome setting really saved it and the decent performances of the leads helped too. I would watch a sequel of this. I liked: Will Smith and the guy playing the Orc. Pretty good chemistry imo That they weren't afraid to really go with the fantasy of the film Following on from that, the general setting and ambiance was very interesting Spoiler regarding the ending I disliked: Plot holes The action and fight choreography was good with guns, but bad with hand to hand stuff, particularly towards the end Some dialogue
  15. They're not reflectors, it's camera equipment from when they faked the footage on the moon. Good thing we live in Europe, so we have a +25% research advantage.
