Film & TV / Re: Game of Thrones prequel

I can't see this being worth the effort, but I live in hope and will give it a watch. It seems to have a solid roster of good young actors, but as yet no big names, even with such a pedigree? That doesn't suggest that the pilot script is blowing anyone's socks off.

You're right, I apologise. I was triggered by something in the last few posts. No-one's problem but mine. :)

I’m going to pretend that I’ve never made an bad-tempered or ill-considered post whose tone had absolutely nothing to do with the post I was responding to and everything to do with my mood and/or state of mind at the time.

Fortunately, the search function on this forum is so terrible so I’m confident that no one will be able to turn up any evidence to the contrary.
Don't concern yourself. I'm making a list for next time.

As an annual combi subber I get the gift every year. They're not just for "new" subscribers.
Well dayam.

Seems a bit harsh. Not every thread or post is going to be of interest to every forum member!

It's not like this place is alive with traffic these days… I don't think sniping at other posters because you don't personally find a conversation interesting is desperately helpful.
You're right, I apologise. I was triggered by something in the last few posts. No-one's problem but mine. :)

So, in conclusion, are we saying that if I change from a monthly to an annual sub, I'll get the new subscriber gifts every year?

Do we have so little to talk about that we're actually interested in who came up with what idea in a film of a thousand ideas?

Games / Re: Last game played...

Me and the two boys are fighting over the Switch in replays of Breath Of The Wild. Strikes me that there's no need for skipping levels and cheat codes when you structure the game in a clever way.
I'm just trying to get into this for the third time. I bought a Switch on the promise of this being game of the century, but not being the exploratory type, I found it difficult to love.

Thankfully the Switch has delivered many other gems to make up for it. :)

Love Outland. It has a scrappy quality, good action, and a brilliant soundtrack.

(Nu)Ghostbusters what was on the telly last night and I recorded... and was okay I guess.
We found this 'okay' as well...which I categorise as a big disappointment. I wish they'd let these scripts cook for a bit longer. Everything was in place for a great film.

Fantastic Beasts II: I agree entirely agree about all of this. There was an assumption that I’d remember a metric fucktonne of stuff from the first movie that rendered at least the first thirty minutes incomprehensible to me. Yes, it kind of settles down into something watchable in the last hour and I didn’t hate it, but I thought it was very much the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest of this series.
This was a big disappointment for us. It should've been much better.

Film & TV / Re: Christmas Telly?
« on: 05 December, 2018, 09:56:20 am »
It's a shame that top class Christmas telly isn't a thing any more - probably because you can find great stuff anytime now. Back in the day it was the only time you'd get great recent(ish) films and the rest of the year was so crap, this period felt like... well, Christmas . We used to get the double-size Radio Times (which was BBC only back then) and TV Times at Christmas only and the family would spend ages marking out their must-sees.
Same. Those bumper Radio Times were a sure sign the school holidays were just around the corner. VHS rentals gradually killed the thrill of the big Christmas Day movie (although I relied on a Christmas taping of Back to the Future for many years before buying a proper version), and nowadays, everyone throws their gifted DVD's into the mix and we decide between us what'll be the best thing to watch while the food goes down.
