    Uncharted: The Movie

    I honestly think they should cast Shane McRae from Sneaky Pete as Drake.

    The Staircase (contains verdict spoilers)

    Just watched the Forensic Files episode. Wow, they really ramp up the drama in that show don't they? That said, it certainly is interesting that more information is shed that they don't touch on in the documentary. And the fact that Peterson supposedly had a relationship with one of the filmmakers makes me think again. In summary, who the hell knows, maybe he did it, maybe he didn't. Argh!

    Favorite Gig?

    Ha! I was there that night! I also went backstage with the band afterwards and they gave us a bottle of whisky. Two of my best: U2 Zoo TV Tour at Earls Court 1992. I'll never forget that night. We had restricted view tickets and when the band came on we couldn't see a thing. Next thing we know an usher has taken us from our seats, led us to a backstage area, told us to behave ourselves, and took us in front of the stage where the photographers were, for the entire gig. The Polyphonic Spree - Royal Festival Hall 2002. This was another unforgettable night. It was the first time The Spree had played overseas and they were supporting The Divine Comedy as part of David Bowie's Meltdown Festival. After a few songs the electricity went out but they finished their set regardless. Took the roof off.

    The Staircase (contains verdict spoilers)

    The Netflix series has three new episodes that weren’t part of the original series, which bring the story right up to date, so it’s worth going back to if you haven’t seen it for a while.

    The Staircase (contains verdict spoilers)

    It’s an incredibly interesting case. As I said in the Netflix thread, I’ve watched the whole thing a few times and it’s always fascinating. In my opinion, he didn’t do it. And that’s even when you consider some of the very questionable things in his past, namely the suspicious circumstances of the family friends death in a similar manner. I still don’t think the motive was there. Worth also giving the BBC podcast ‘Beyond Reasonable Doubt’ a listen, which very much feels as if they’re on the ‘he did it’ side of the fence. Peterson was not happy with the way he was portrayed on it, but ends up giving the guy an interview.

    Nanette (Hannah Gadsby’s amazing comedy set)

    Yep, just watched it. Powerful stuff. Cheers for posting about it.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    Erm, yes they are. You might not like them, but they’re definitely Star Wars characters.
  8. Ha, I know exactly the sort of thing you mean. ‘Forensic Files’ comes to mind. Stick with it, it just gets more and more interesting.
  9. Very much so. Out of all the true crime docs out there, I would actually place The Staircase at the top. I’ve watched the whole thing a few times over the years and it never fails to keep me watching and wondering. In fact, I think it would be worth having a separate spoiler thread for it to be discussed in detail.

    A critical take on the Nintendo Switch

    The Switch is portable.

    The Last of Us Part 2

    I agree with you that it’s one of the greatest video games ever made (only second to Dark Souls for me), but I don’t think that means it should therefore be beyond criticism. It’d be a bit dull around here if we could only say positive things about a game!

    Hereditary

    Fair enough, it came across more like you were stating it as a fact though. Like I say, I feel like I’ve been seeing this a lot recently, I think we should be able to recognise something as a ‘scary’ movie, even if we don’t personally find it scary ourselves.

    Hereditary

    Sorry, woke up with a hangover so not in the best of moods. I just feel like I’ve been reading this a lot recently, happened a lot with the IT remake, and it comes across as very ‘I’m well ‘ard, me. That’s not horror, because I didn’t find it scary at all’. Surely ‘scariness’ is the result of atmosphere, tension, dread, weirdness and implied horrors, it doesn’t live alongside them, does it?

    Good new horror films

    Excellent choices. I particularly love It Follows. Lake Mungo is another good effort!

    Hereditary

    Fucking hell, my hero. What is up with with people proclaiming that certain horror films ‘aren’t scary’ as if it’s fact? Is it just bravado? Maybe you didn’t personally find them scary, but plenty of people did. Also, The Thing, ‘isn’t remotely scary’? Ha. Do you guys want an award or something? As for Hereditary, I thought it was ok. I thought the first 45 minutes were great but then it just started borrowing too much from other movies and I found it to be a bit of a let down. Probably didn’t help that my expectations were pretty high going into it. Will give it another watch at some point.
