    You don’t ‘take them out’, you goddamn monster!

    Kurosawa’s Stray Dog? Not sure if it’s on Netflix though.

    Another situation where the Thunderhelm comes in very handy.

    The flowers on your wallpaper give the effect of some sort of super sophisticated ambilight, like the telly is projecting bloody handprints on to it or something.

    Have you ever found a game too hard?

    A two headed worm thing, I dimly recall? I remember that wasvreally hard, then you ‘got it’ and it was really easy. I loved NG2 - I’m not one for hardcore games generally but I rinsed that. The tower!

    A movie watchers blog

    As I’m using the BFI player on Prime to scoop up Eric Rohmer films I’ve not previously seen I watched ‘L'Arbre, le maire et la médiathèque’ (The Tree, the Mayor and the Mediacentre) at le weekend (the weekend). This flick is from 1993, and of course it’s pure perfection - it’s Rohmer! But quite unlike anything of his I’ve seen before. It must have been made for about ten centimes, it’s a real hodgepodge of styles, and rather than delicately unravelling the essences of romance and relationships he whips up a verdant froth about provincial French politics and land management. All the Rohmer regulars are in it, and you can tell they are having a ball with the script which is just the right side of silly nothing, and as a consequence tells everything...so I guess they’re in standard Rohmer territory working up something from thin air. But he whirls everything into a spin with static shots of salad leaves, contrived coincidences and documentary vox pops, a good old singsong, delicious chapter intros, exquisitely ponderous country exteriors and city interiors...as I said, it’s perfect. I implore everyone to watch this stunning film. If you’ve not seen any Rohmer flicks before it’s probably not the best one to start with, but if you like something thoroughly French it’s a pure treat. Or just movies, for that matter.

    I could never dock a ship in Elite.

    Haha, that's it! It looked phenomenal in the arcades, but it was the same old hokey shit as Dragon's Lair in terms of what you could actually do.

    Does anyone remember the hologram game in the arcades based on the same ‘pay money to remember a trial and error sequence’ gameplay? I think it was something to do with cowboys...it looked amazing at the time, like something from the future.

    My recollection of the few quid I was robbed of by Dragon's Lair as a kid is that it had approximately zero enjoyable gameplay. Why pay 18 quid for that? You may as well watch it on Youtube:

    Thanks, still 99p as I just picked it up, what a bargain!
  12. Surely it's different with Judd Apatow stuff anyway. 30 minutes will seem like 90, etc.

    No, it’s brilliant. It’s just been buried under all the other great shows.
