    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Thanks for pointing that out. Never noticed it before but now I can't ignore it and it's driving me mad as well. Appreciate it.

    Demon's Souls

    Add me to the list of folk who've dug out the PS3 and started another playthrough of what is still my favourite game. Spoilered for length:

    Demon's Souls

    This is brilliant, perfectly put. Demons Souls is my favourite game ever partly because of this sort of thing. The Valley of Defilement is so absolutely wonderful. It's the most disgraceful, abysmal, unpleasant and unenjoyable 'level' of any game I've ever played. And getting to that shortcut? Jesus fucking wheelie. One of the best feelings I've ever had in a video game. Latria does scary in a similarly kick ass way as well.

    The Goonies

    Both excellent points. When it comes down to it Harry Potter is all about the innate goodness in people. Everyone has good and evil in them but it's what they choose to do that shows what sort of person they are. Most of the 'evil' characters are portrayed as being like they are to varying degrees because of how they've been treated rather than just being bad. Probably safe, but just in case.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Surely this is set well before Star Wars? In Empire Strikes Back Han and Lando act like they haven't seen each other for years when they meet at Cloud City, maybe even a decade or more.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Yep, totally. Looks brilliant.

    Dark (Netflix)

    Another +1 for Primer. One of the best films I've seen. It's so intricately plotted and the whole thing hangs together amazingly once you work out what's happening. Confusing on first watch, so it really needs to be seen multiple times. But it's totally brilliant.
  10. I've read the first book and didn't particularly get on with it, but I loved this. I thought it was terrifically good. Great performances, looked amazing, creepy as fuck and the score and sound design was just incredible. Going to re-read the book now. I thought

    Iain Banks Culture Series – Amazon Studios

    I agree totally with the points you’ve made there, but the person going on about Harry Potter you quoted hasn’t got a fucking clue.

    Iain Banks Culture Series – Amazon Studios

    Done well this could be exceptional. The Culture series is one of the most amazing things and very close to my heart. Having the writer from Utopia makes me hopeful. I also think Banks' estate would never allow this unless they felt Amazon would do it justice.
  13. Guardian review is up and it sounds really good. Review isn't by Peter Bradshaw so it's pretty much spoiler-free, but precautions none the less just in case. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/feb/22/annihilation-review-natalie-portman-thriller-leaves-a-haunting-impression

    Blade Runner 2049

    I always thought the pinkeye was a way bigger indication he was a Replicant than the origami but the whole thing’s got out of hand with what was intended or not. I can’t find the source but I read an article years ago with either Ridley Scott or the DP stating that the Deckard pinkeye shot was accidental. It was meant to indicate a synthetic, but it showing up in that one scene was accidental. Ridley Scott has stated several times that Deckard is a replicant. Harrison Ford has said he was told and always thought Deckard was human during shooting. The whole origami unicorn thing clearly implies he’s a Replicant. The story has more resonance if he’s human. At this point it’s all so convoluted, it’s become a point of contention and discussion among fans with no possible definitive answer. At the end of the first film he realises that if he’s human or not is irrelevant. And that’s who he is in 2049. He knows it’s what you do that matters, not what you are. Same as the spinning top in Inception. Doesn’t matter if it falls. That Cobb doesn’t care is the important thing.
