  1. Robin Williams had a range that Carrey can not approach. Able to move seamlessly from light hearted comedy to drama in a moment without missing a beat. Like that scene at the end of Good Morning Vietnam where he plays his schtick for a truck of newly arriving GIs as he departs. Or perfectly capturing the character in Jumanji, a man who has spent decades living a nightmare in a boardgame. The problem is that he has done a lot of bilge as well. But when he was in the zone he was untouchable. No offence to Carrey. A great entertainer and able to do drama as well. Just not at the same time.
  2. The whole of The Great Wall is ridiculous. But this part absolutely fits the bill for being unintentionally hilarious: Years of training to be an acrobatic ninja and they stick you on the end of a rope and feed you to the monsters. I hope that Matt Damon for paid really well for this garbage.
  3. What did you last play? If you have been playing action-filled games and want something more relaxing the Murder by Numbers is pretty good.
  4. I would turn off the mini map as well. It can be easy to focus on it rather than the gorgeous game world. Better to switch to the map regularly to check your bearings than to play the game following your horse GPS.
  5. Just noticed that Ken Loach's Sorry We Missed You is up on Prime. In case anyone needs more reasons to be angry with the Tories.
  6. Realising that the futuristic robot FPS I had bought for some mindless shooting had much stronger narrative and character design than it had any right to.
  7. Robopocalypse is possibly the worst science fiction book I have ever read. It tries, and fails, to be World War Z with machines. It is like that episode of Family Guy where Peter writes erotic fiction, but with killer robots instead of sex. Everyone should enjoy it if they get the chance. The Aquariums of Pyongyang is very good, although if you are looking for books on North Korea then The Girl with Seven Names also worth a read and is free to Prime users, and the excellent Nothing to Envy is regularly on sale. Flowers for Algernon is also in this sale, and is highly recommended.
  8. The thing that shocks me most is that I would expect her bookshelf to have her own works displayed like a Waterstones window.
  9. Naughty Dog could not have asked for a better launch window than at the end of the months of lockdown with an audience who are suddenly armchair experts on global pandemics. Plus, the game is spectacular (so far) and deserves every one of its sales.
  10. I imagine that Mel Gibson's appeal as a lead for a family film has diminished somewhat since 2000.
  11. Its the swagger, lifeless stare and slow, enunciated "until it goes 'click'" that make it the believable words of a psychopath and not just an alpha-male threat.
  12. I'm guessing that, somewhere along the design process, a decimal place got misplaced or there was some confusion between metric and imperial measurements, leading to a meeting where the execs said "Well that looks great, but can you mock up a full sized one for us to sign off?" as a lorry full of these was being unloaded into the warehouse. Or in a single word, 'Stonehenge'.
  13. I would watch the shit out of
  14. That last episode was not the best episode ever, but it has the best scene of any R&M episode.
