    Cliffhanger remake

    I'll watch Cliffhanger whenever it's on TV, but let's be honest, it's cheesier than a Frenchman's larder. If I was to sit down with a 25 year old today claiming that it was the 90s equivalent of Mission Impossible Fallout they'd give me some very sympathetic looks. That said, I suspect a remake without the cheese would be a very forgettable affair.
  2. I feel we're being robbed of something really special with this change.

    The Humble Thread

    Lego City Undercover is well worth $12 on its own.
  4. It's exceeded my very high hopes. There are going to be memes about this until the heat death of the universe.

    Line of Duty (BBC)

    I strongly expect his styling was decided during those few weeks of the World Cup when loads of men were emulating the Gareth Southgate beard/waistcoat combo.
  6. Yeah, I know there's very little to judge this on but it looks like a move back to JJ making fanfic again. Which is fine. I'm sure it will have momentum and heartfelt moments, but it didn't have to be like that.

    Line of Duty (BBC)

    She's not even the worst actor in most of the scenes she's in, because that dubious honour goes to Martin Compston and his "I've seen EastEnders a couple of times" attempt at a East London / Essex accent.

    Fleabag - BBC3 Comedy

    I thought
  9. I keep popping back into this folder just to check if the trailer has been posted. When it does I'm going to settle down in a comfy chair, pour out a single malt and enjoy.
  10. 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.

    Noises

    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.
