  1. I think that rumour - that he wanted Bond to die at the end - is probably true, and I can see the producers' point of view on that one.

    It's not quite the same thing, but last week I was listening to a presentation, and the presenter naturally dropped into a very regular meter with his delivery - very much the way you would read rhyming couplets. It was weirdly hypnotic, to the point where I stopped listening to the words and got lost in the rhythm of the sounds he was making, as if it was music. I'm not musically trained, and almost all of the structure and techniques being employed in songs go over my head, but recently I've started listening to the Strong Songs podcast by Kirk Hamilton (he of Kotaku fame). He breaks down the music in well known catchy songs to a really forensic level - to the point where they are just sounds, and then layers them back together to show how this all work together to hook into your brain. It's worth a listen. Anyway, welcome to the forum and great topic.

    Star Trek Discovery

    That's what you got from that accent? It sounded Bajan to me. I think the actor is Canadian. Who knows what she was going for.

    Good new horror films

    A highlight of mine was where

    Films with one set.

    Bar a few seconds at the end, Circle is in one room. On the ultra low budget sci-fi theme, Circle is set in a single room (bar a few seconds at the end). It's 'interesting' rather than 'good' though.
  6. Absolutely. That's why I choose to walk around everywhere with one eye shut.

    Shaft (2019)

    Everyone should watch that trailer whilst repeating "Samuel L Jackson is 70 years old".

    Polar (Netflix Film) - Mads Mikkelsen

    I don't understand the calls for this to be more tonally consistent, or dialed down a bit. It only works on its sleazy, trashy excess. It wants you to feel uncomfortable by having a boner whilst seeing some nasty violence. It purposely enforces the male gaze then immediately holds up the mirror of the inherent damage that can do to women. It wants you to get hyped up for some over the top violence and then takes it to an extreme and asks you 'is this what you want?'. It wants you cheer on the cool hitman, then holds up the damage that brutal murder does to all the people involved. The film wants you to feel grubby and it's proud to be trash.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    That's the last one I got too. I'll let you where it isn't. I was certain it was in one particular area and spent way too long searching it. It's not there. Glad I could help.

    Best one hit wonder of all time

    If you want some more extravagantly arranged, feel good pop from M&B, look no further than this little beauty which had moderate chart success.
