  1. Regarding the reliance on old characters, and the new ones not looking great.....tbh I'm only seeing them all as supporting characters that are there to facilitate Picards arc, and that is fine by me. I mean, the show has his fucking name on it! I'm tuning in for him, couldnt care less about the rest of em.
  2. Admittedly that could kinda work with the premise - the world (galaxy) has moved on from 20 years ago and the oldies dont quite recognise it anymore.
  3. Worth it just for the look he gives the receptionist. I do really wanna know wtf is going on though.
  4. Odds of a rival network picking it up? (I'm looking at you, bezos)
  5. I wasnt keen on the first one at all but, due to being off work with a busted leg, I've caught up on 2 and 3, almost back to back in fact. And I had a much better time with them. I think what made the difference for me was seeing the emerging videogame logic in how they're made. The more you learn about the underworld the more it starts to remind me of a modern day assassins creed, at which point all the silly plot-points feel a bit more familiar, and it means you get to have scenes where people get gunned down in crowded subways without anyone even noticing. Also, each setpiece has an exploitable gimmick, all the characters are just the right amount of trope-y, some of them (like halle berry) practically have 'special moves'. I actually think this stuff should translate really well into that new game coming out with very little effort. Also, great to see Fishburne clearly enjoying every moment.
  6. Absolutely. More to my audio and visual tastes too, although that is of course purely subjective.
  7. Literally just saw that myself. It was....not bad. Not exactly the 40 minutes of Macfarlane animated music video I was wanting, but I'm glad stuff like this is being experimented with.
  8. Just saw The Accountant.....wasnt expecting much, just wanted to kill a couple of hours after spending all weekend digging the garden up. Turned out to be an enjoyable little film, for what it was. I did figure out (almost) all of the story beats about 30 minutes in, and some of mr accountants characterisations were laid on a bit thick, but I suppose if you're gonna cast affleck you might as well play up his er, limited emotive range. Otherwise surprisingly great casting. Got a lol out of the 'elliot ness' line.
  9. Been playing around with a cool little experimental algorithmic tool that I randomed across on someones portfolio, GauGAN. http://nvidia-research-mingyuliu.com/gaugan Might be a fun little way of quickly comping together a plate to work further on top of with more traditional means. Or just to dick around with for luls. Apparently there are some GANs that can do pretty good faces now too. Not at all creepy. Nope.
  10. Cant help wonder what theyre flying around in either. It sure as fuck isnt any proper starfleet ship. Even for a small one, the visual language is all off. Too utilitarian.
  11. I wasnt 100% sure that was even a gag. I could well beleive someone might have a creepy blacksite full of ex-borg they arent quite sure what to do with.
  12. Is it gonna be good? It looks good. Surely not. Also, Stewart really does sound old now, doesnt he? I guess that's the point, but having not seen Logan that's surprised me a bit. So, err, who the fuck do we think mcguffin girl is? Something borgy?
  13. I didnt even know this was a thing 5 minutes ago, but fuckit, I'm on board. Now, to invite a bit of baseless speculation ontop of all the plane-talk........as well as the hornets and tomcats (good eye btw), I also noticed they have unusual looking flightsuits/helmets in a few scenes (you can see cruise has a neckring during his 'chat'). Have to wonder what that is about. Reminds me a hell of a lot of the high-altitude gear you'd have U2 pilots using back in the day.
