    The Haunting of Hill House

    Slow burn at first (we had a lot of ‘who’s that again?’ chatter at the start), but ultimately a fantastic series of tragedy and horror. Beautifully shot and definitely going to re-watch again.

    The Office (US)

    Just (or recently) been added to Prime. That’s my go to TV sorted again for a while!

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    People chewed up and loved TFA as a soft reboot. Millions. Billions. If TLJ had been a blatant ‘soft reboot’ of Empire, rather than subverting expectations (hashtag), I’m half wondering whether that’s what everyone actually wanted and why they are so ‘meh’ about TLJ as it turned out. It feels like this film was the difinitive knife edge of soft reboot vs something different, and just couldn’t make its mind up, or rather, had massive interference late on (Kathleen/mouse). Rougue One, depressingly and for all its faults, is the only Star Wars film since the prequels that pulled off actually being different than the original trilogy.
  4. Don’t the box office takings of these films suggest otherwise? Deadpool 2 and Ant Man 2 both performed poorly compared to their predecessors.
  5. I think this is the consensus of 90% of people. Fatigue. Edit: Personally, I was spent after infinity war which in itself, despite being a phenomenal film, felt the point at which I felt I was done with superheroes for a bit. Not a degree of scorn on infinity war, it’s my favourite marvel film of all time. Just a mental point reached.

    League of Gentlemen

    That ending scene...
  7. I think a small thing but a brilliant thing is how they've animated the characters singing as if they are actually singing. Expressions, pausing for breath, straining on high notes etc. It's probably not the first time (not seen Frozen), but I really noticed it. There's a lot of really subtle animation in this.
  8. Watched this over the weekend with the niece and nephews. Absolutely loved it, the golden trio of great visuals, story and music. They certainly know how to do it right. Kids were spellbound, laughing at 'the big man', the chicken, the youngest just loved the colours I imagine. Except in 2 parts I actually welled up. Whether it was 'that' feeling when a certain piece of music just hits I don't know. The ending section just completely moved me. It's hard to explain, not sadness, just overwhelmed with combination of music and story I guess.

    Manchester by the sea

    Just back from this. Genuinely deeply moving, but in a subtle way. I think it'll be one of those films that will stick in my mind for a while. The scenes mentioned above, agree completely. Hard one to really comment on but Casey Afleck just shot up in terms of what I thought he was capable of portraying, he was brilliant.

    Final Fantasy XV

    You said you find it remarkable people can't differentiate from what is good and what they enjoy? Your opinion is it's not good. My opinion is that it is good. 'Good' is subjective, you don't get to decide that on behalf of everyone. Neither do I. It was good/great to me. It was not to you. I respect your opinion, and appreciate you have different expectations of what is a good game than me.

    Final Fantasy XV

    'What is good' is your opinion. 'What they enjoy' is not. You can't speak on behalf of other people's thoughts on the game and say they are wrong for enjoying something you don't think is good. That is pretty arrogant. I thought it was 'great' and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Final Fantasy XV

    Finished it yesterday. Best game I've played in a long time, and up there in my top 3 FF's of all time. Ending:

    Final Fantasy XV

    Me for 50ish levels: "Wish the music in the car was louder..." And then I see there's a separate volume slider for that in the options...grr.
  15. I have 100+ photos to choose from, but this just made my day (night). NOM! (Excuse phone camera screenshot faux pas...)
