  1. I tried them with Ghibli but they keep protesting, I'll try again though as they are largely wonderful. Our nine year old has major anxiety issues so anything remotely scary he won't do. The thought of watching something new is pretty terrifying for him so this was an attempt to break through that. Every week it's a battle to get something on! Matilda for example scared the shit out of him. But to be fair the scene in the big house could have come straight from a horror film. Our five year olds obsessions range from Princess and the Frog to Spiderman, so shes more will
  2. When the first lockdown started in March 2020 we introduced Friday Film Night in our house, and the only rule we set was the film must be something the kids hadn't seen before. We've ran this every Friday since and now I'm at the point of really struggling to find something good to watch. Help! I've got Disney, Netflix and Amazon Prime, and also happy to rent films if required. Nine and five year old to entertain so can't really do the Marvel films yet. Starwars went over their heads. We've done; All of Aardman All of Ice Age All of Pixar
  3. Season 6 was released in a weird way originally from what I remember due to the writers strike, and was split into two seasons. I don't know if that explains Amazon's weird description though. PS - if you haven't seen it don't even LOOK at the different seasons on Amazon until you are there, their descriptions of the season have big spoilers of the previous season. So glad people are enjoying this
  4. Widows Amazon Prime Much better than your average heist film with an incredible cast and excellent performances. I thought some of the shots were outstanding, pushing some really creative images that manage to be exciting without distracting. I was engaged by the main plot and characters, but it had a little too much happening on the side which was mostly important to the story but not overly interesting. Some events take place near the end of film were also disappointing, like they had to force in an extra story beat when the the basics of the film was already strong enough.
  5. I thought it was great. Season 2 is pretty hard going, but it somehow gets better retrospectively as the seasons go on. The first episode really was something else though, one of the strongest pilots I've ever seen.
  6. Excuse the blatant self-promotion, but I was rather pleased with myself to have four pages of images featured in the latest Digital SLR Photography Magazine. I knew it was coming, they approached me in November, but it's still exciting! First time I've had anything featured in a magazine
  7. Jonny's son is definitely the worst thing about the show, he's been awful since the start. Sam isn't much better. Other than that I think the kids are alright, I rather enjoy Hawk's attempts at being badass and a complete numpty at the same time. Finished season 3 last night, in general it's a drop in quality but it was still hugely silly and entertaining. Bring on season 4.
  8. I finally started it this week after picking it up on the estore sale. So far so good, it's perfect gaming for my limited free time. I'm about 70 moons in so far and have enjoyed all the kingdoms I've visited, it's all very easy though other than a few 'hat' rooms that I found quite tricky. When I look at the list of all the moons it's scary how many I haven't got yet in the various kingdoms despite doing my best to collect them. I guess it's nice to read this thread and realise that they aren't all available straight away. I certainly won't be looking to collect every
  9. So my girlfriend and I tried Exit: The Abandoned Cabin and it suitably kicked our arses. We had a bit of a nightmare with the kids (we played new years eve), couldn't get them to bed and then they kept on waking up. So didn't start until gone 10pm, having been woken up at 5am, and had multiple interruptions on the way, including having to move the whole game upstairs so we could be near to them. Bless. Anyway that's my excuses, we took 2 hours 30. We actually solved the concept of most of the puzzles quite easily but ended up over thinking the implementation, which le
  10. Love it, nice treatment creates a great atmosphere.
  11. Ok so quick sales pitch on the greatest TV show ever. The Shield is the greatest TV show ever. The lead character is a bit annoying for the first couple of episodes but stick with it for a brilliant 7 season story arch with probably the most intense and brilliant performances I've ever seen in a TV show (Walton Goggins, also from Justified mentioned in this thread, is the standout). Some rate The Wire, Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones higher, but for me The Shield wins hands down. It's outstanding. Please watch.

    I keep bouncing off of BotW, I want to love it but I just can't get stuck in and every session feels fairly aimless. These days I bearly get any gaming time and dipping in and out of a game that size is not easy. In other news I bought Mario Odyssey in the sale today.
  13. Cobra Kai season 3 is up now. Not seen it yet!
  14. The Killing Fields 5/5 Watched on Amazon Prime. I've never seen this before and it blew me away. The chaos, drama and tragedy is so well captured. It's a very difficult watch and at times confusing, with parts of the story seemingly skipped and large portions of the film where no dialogue is understood unless you speak the language. It's worth noting the film had no subtitles. I'm not sure if this is intentionally part of the film or an error with Amazon on my viewing, but I felt like it worked perfectly for the first half as it brought us closer to
