  1. HDR - what's it all about?

    Screen size and viewing distance are key to 4K TVs. For movies especially I’ve found 4K / HDR to be very underwhelming. Games have been much better and a very worthwhile upgrade.

    True although I read earlier that if Rockhold is to have a run at light heavy the writer recommends a change of attitude as well. He just comes across as a complete asshole. Romero is clearly mental but he did take the fight on short notice so didn’t have a full camp. I’d suggest he deserves a little bit of leeway for the weight issue. How he looks like that and doesn’t pop for roids in the build up is amazing though.

    It’s fair to say both are flawed people so ultimately one of them getting spectacularly ko’d was ideal. Both ko’ing each other at the same time would have been nice but that’s a bit of a big ask.
  4. Official Mixed Martial Arts Thread

    I’ve been watching for about 10 years or so. I remember stacked cards full of fighters I’d saw before or ones that had been discussed on various websites. Now even the ppv cards have fighters on them that I’ve absolutely no clue who they are and after watching them I never particularly want to see again. The Fox deal spread the UFC too thin and they’ve haemorrhaged too many names to Bellator. Bellator aren’t doing well either though as their viewing figures are dwindling. There are not enough quality fighters to support two high profile mma organisations in America. Simple as that. The UFC are in the predicament of needing a new tv deal but not having enough well known fighters to pad out all the cards that will entail. They don’t have a clue how to build themselves a superstar anymore. I don’t think an answer to the decline in viewership of mma is coming anytime soon. I think it’ll take years if ever for the UFC to be in the ascendancy again. The bubble has burst and it’s their own fault. The Fertitta’s knew it was coming and got out at the right time.

    UFC 222 looks fantastic as well. By fantastic I mean clearly better than 221 but it’s undoubtedly going to completely bomb as a ppv in the US as it’s just not very good. MAIN CARD (PPV, 10 p.m. ET) Champ Cris Cyborg vs. Yana Kunitskaya – for women’s featherweight title Frankie Edgar vs. Brian Ortega Sean O’Malley vs. Andre Soukhamthath Andrei Arlovski vs. Stefan Struve Ketlen Vieira vs. Cat Zingano PRELIMINARY CARD (FS1, 8 p.m. ET) Mackenzie Dern vs. Ashley Yoder Beneil Dariush vs. Bobby Green John Dodson vs. Pedro Munhoz C.B.

    A typically rubbish UFC with a brilliant main event. Rockhold was understandably dazed after the ko but just ignoring Romero when he was, bizarrely, telling him he loved him sums the man up. Rockhold is done as a contender. He’s moved to gatekeeper status and that is fantastic.
  7. Brawl in Cell Block 99 - Vince Vaughn breaks bones

    This a grim pile of cheaply made nonsense. A terrible film with no redeeming qualities.
  8. Official Mixed Martial Arts Thread

    There's not really much mention if Cachoeira should ever have been allowed into the ring with someone like Shevchenko. Why is someone with only 8 pro fights entering the UFC for the first time to face such a killer? Should Yana Kunitskaya be anywhere near a cage with Cyborg? She has 13 mma fights but only 3 in Invicta. I like the way Dana White stated that CM Punk should never be allowed near a UFC event again and yet here he is, ready to prop up a Chicago card. It's almost as if White is just full of shit.
  9. Logan Lucky - New caper film from Soderbergh, with Tatum, Driver, Craig

    This film doesn’t totally work but it’s vaguely entertaining. A real curio and a bit of an odd one from Sodenbergh.
  10. Dark (Netflix)

    This is absolutely stunning. Mind bending and mind blowing, It’s one of the best tv shows I’ve ever watched. Really nice cinematography as well. It’s incredibly atmospheric.
  11. Official Mixed Martial Arts Thread

    Ah, ok. My bad. All UFC events resemble fight nights nowadays. The future of the organisation does not bode well.
  12. Official Mixed Martial Arts Thread

    Eh? That’s UFC 222. UFC 222

    Cat Zingano vs. Ketlen Vieira Hector Lombard vs. C.B. Dollaway Stefan Struve vs. Andrei Arlovski Sean O’Malley vs. Andre Soukhamthath Mackenzie Dern vs. Ashley Yoder Bryan Caraway vs. Cody Stamann Jordan Johnson vs. Adam Milstead Beneil Dariush vs. Bobby Green Holy shit, that’s a spectacularly bad card.
  14. Monster Hunter: World

    I was absolutely hooked on Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U but this hasn’t done the same. It’s quite the time sink and I’m finding it’s too much. You can play for quite a while and get nowhere. I’m not sure I’m up for that right now. Will perhaps dabble a bit but already I seem to be miles behind other playes HR when I look up up what’s available in online multiplayer. Clearly it’s a good game though.
  15. Liverpool Football Club Thread

    Our net spend in the FSG era is rather small. Where is the money? We have quite the income after all. We aren't some tiny club that has a small budget. The finances are out there for all to view. By all means don’t overspend but it’s transfer window after transfer window in which we don’t seem to just go for it.
