  1. That was a bad episode of television.
  2. I came here with a simple dream: a dream of killing all humans. And this is how it must end? Who's the real undead monster here? Not I, not....I.

    Not sure I'd take Hazard as a box-to-box midfielder even over an out of form Pogba.
  4. I don't get the need for every piece of world-building to be expanded on or every plot strand to be fully 'resolved' (whatever that means). Like the bank, for instance. What about the bank? They turn up then aren't used for stretches? Right, so what?

    The manager doth protest too much, methinks.

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    Just beat Gen A and that's one of the most beautifully designed boss fights I have ever encountered. Even when he was kicking my ass I was shouting "this is fucking amazing!" and so excited to go back and give him another try. Slash, parry, slash, parry, parry, slash, parry, mikiri counter, slash, parry, dead. Just a thing of beauty. I want to do it again, I'm not done fighting him.

    I was jumping around the roofs of Ashina Castle, admiring the scale and verticality of it all...

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    This game is hard enough without me self-sabotaging. I was doing very well in the Lady Butterfly fight - managed to get her down to literally one last strike when she killed me. Not to worry, I thought, I still had my revive so it was a mere formality of getting back up and finishing her off. In my frenzy, I began impatiently tapping L1 instead of R1 and chose death over reviving myself. This was maybe my third attempt at the boss. I then spent about two hours trying to beat her, completely and utterly titled by my stupidity which made the fight even harder because I was barely concentrating anymore. R1. R1. Press R1 next time.

    Can't tell if that thumbnail is real or a FIFA render.

    Jordan Peele's 'Us'

    This is spot on in my opinion. I enjoyed the film, though it was a bit more don't-get-out-of-the-car-quick-turn-around conventional horror than I was hoping for (compared to Get Out), but it's the day after watching it at the cinema and it's still turning in my head, which by default puts it ahead of most modern horror.
  12. I liked it a lot. His absurd size made for some interesting and pleasing compositions and shots.

    Tombstone - The Western Film Genre

    Anthony Mann's Man of the West. I don't know if it's underrated as such, but it certainly doesn't seem to get the same reverence as other westerns that it should. It is a tremendous film that isn't just one of the best examples of the genre but one of the finest films of the 1950s. MoC has a Blu-Ray that you can pick up for about a tenner. And McCabe & Mrs. Miller if you want an atypical western.
  14. Absolutely loved this. It'll take a hell of an argument to convince me this isn't the finest superhero film ever made.
