  1. I didn't know Yul Brynner was in this!

    It unlocks in about 3 hours. You could buy it now from CD Keys and use the next few hours to download it.
  3. Sorry, this is completely off track, but I've always thought of that use of the word in the 'rape and pillage' sense rather than the sexual assault meaning.
  4. It was a single line to quickly establish that a) he is a dad, and b) one who thinks about his children's wellbeing. Nothing more to read into it. But this does go some way to answer Pete's question about why it's so popular, it's the type of show where questioning everybody's actions pays dividends.
  5. The guy wrote The Usual Suspects so this is not a criticism of him as a writer, but the 'writing' in the McQuarrie M:I films is more like 'writing' in a porn film insofar as it appears to have been made up five minutes before filming, and just serves to provide the flimsiest of set up for the action.

    My wife and I play these together and a small but important part of our enjoyment comes from laughing at the shitty plot. If this isn't the continuing adventures of a dead-eyed serial killer whose main aim in life is to destroy the cultural artifacts of some of the most oppressed people on the planet, whilst simultaneously adding five more animals to the endangered species list, then we're not interested.

    It's always worth checking the price on Is There Any Deal as they do a price comparison but only for legit sites so you don't need to worry about dodgy keys.

    Does anyone know when the reviews are likely to drop? It's currently £33.77 on Green Man Gaming but I don't want to pre-order until some opinions are out there.

    Or if you played the original like I did: "Rockstar Poker, (with a very small amount of horseriding bolted onto the side) Simulator 2018"

    Yoda convinces him after Rey left the island.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Rey fails in both tasks she sets herself in TLJ. She struggles and fails to convince Luke to come back and fight the First Order, and she fails to convince Kylo to join her. In my view these aren't minor failures either, and certainly aren't overshadowed by her success in lifting some rocks.

    It's nice to have this thread back at it's rightful place on the first page after the past month of disappointingly scant TLJ chat.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Despite really liking this film, I am concerned about what the gulf in critical consensus vs. popular opinion says about how well the media serves us. I think if you end up being a film critic for a popular newspaper or website, you probably have some sort of arts degree and have been trained to approach critism through a certain lens which places the exploration of themes and characterization well above things like the logical consistency of the plot. I think we need professional critics from a much more diverse pool to get access to a broader range of opinions.
