  1. Black Panther - Chadwick Boseman - Feb 2018

    Good but not great. The first half of the movie sees the main character with no real motivation at all. The second half, the very well written villain steals the show, and the conflict between his vision and that of the hero is woefully underexplored. Wakanda itself spends too much time looking like a dusty Dubai with gravtrains; it's most interesting geographical features are not really 'placed' properly to give a sense of distance or geography. The female characters are fantastic. A couple of the action sequences seem unfinished. Andy Serkis was brill. Mr and the boy enjoyed it. I'd probably put it in the middle of the Marvel League Table.
  2. Is "Game" finished?

    Or kids spending pocket money rather than mithering their Mum and Dad to add their credit card details to their account and they promise they won't buy anything else... There's a market for it, for sure but it isn't any kind of retail experience that's at all enjoyable.

    Yeah, to do that I think I'd need to use a different material, as this one uses clump foliage. It's bloody thick! You can't see it in the photos but I did paint some fire type effect at the bottom which comes through. Tbh, I don't know if I can even use them with 40k yet, so it's just a bit of fun that may get plonked on top of a damaged model.

    Hoping to use them with 40k in some capacity, maybe, possibly, need to learn it first

    Made the splosions. Difficult to photo, and I probably should have done it on a 33mm base instead of a 60mm one. Really painless to make, will definitely be doing more, smaller ones. https://imgur.com/gallery/crLOe

    I've started trying to make explosion markers for a game I don't yet play fully using oasis wire and clump foliage. I shall report back on my success or otherwise. I've followed the second part of this tutorial, though I've horrendously over-engineered it (who wants only 5 explosion 'spouts' when you can have 9!?) and I haven't got a fucking clue how he manages to make the clump foliage stick together in such large lumps - mine's in tiny, tiny pieces and drenched in PVA.
  7. Altered Carbon - Netflix Cyberpunk

    I've got 2 episodes left and it's just hilariously bad so I'm sticking it out while my eyes roll around so much I feel sick.

    Before I chuck these on eBay, anyone interested in this bundle of gamebook stuff for £10 delivered? Destinyquest is untouched.
  11. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    Well, obviously it's a dinosaur being in Jurassic Park, but you to show just that bit to someone who's not seen it in the context of the trailer and see what they say: It even does that thing where it then cuts to a reaction shot and THEN cuts to the other shot (set further back and framed better, amusingly) which, yes, I'll admit is a cinematic masterpiece despite it showing the exact same thing again like some kind of Vandamme maximum impact replay effect.
  12. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    The scene where they say "you have to get us home" and then a big black smudge runs into the dude and then it quickly cuts back to show the big black smudge run further to the right exemplifies this.
  13. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    Well, the aspect ratio has definitely changed, but you're right it talks a lot about framing and composition within that changing constraint. Which I think is fair given that the new director, with his new aspect ratio and his inability to provide shots that particularly stand out, has created such a flat looking film judging from the trailer. I have uploaded my earlier screengrabs to Imgur to illustrate my point. https://imgur.com/a/5p5mP
  14. Fortnite - 60FPS on console later this month!

    Your swearing implies you care more about this than is healthy. And, sorry, what? Milsim?
  15. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    I just went through the trailer grabbing all the shots where they seemed to be struggling to fit the action in the frame. It's basically all of them. So many where things are cut off in strange and bizarre ways.
