    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    That’s something I wish they’d covered more, obviously people were as deep in the delusion you can get but there was never really much of an idea of how the cult built up, were they religious to begin with? And they seemed to skip what the actual ‘god reveal’ consisted of.

    I think suggestible might be a better word! But when you're on the outside looking into something like that, especially viewing it holistically and in the condensed nature of 20 years squeezed into a couple of hours as we are, I can only conclude it's very difficult to appreciate how insidious that type of manipulation must be.

    Banana Splits are coming back

    When I was a kid, somehow having a go in one of the Banana Splits’ six-wheeler multicoloured assault vehicles was pretty much the sum total of my dreams.

    Bullseye!

    We've got a much better Bullseye thread than this travesty! Find that one.
  6. 3-2-1 was always shit. Now delete this thread and write one about Bullseye instead and you may be forgiven for your blasphemy.
  7. Yeah, totally agree. i don't recognise any of that from the book really except in the broadest and most generic sense. What's best about The Dirt is that it conveys what essentially unhappy scumbags they all are throughout their extraordinary success (with the exception of Mick Mars as scumbag probably, I guess he's most sympathetic - although arguably unhappiest, it's hard to say who wins on that score). I'd like to see that - but I guess that's not going to make the trailer, even if it makes the show.

    It’s a decent chewing gum read, and I read it again over Christmas so it’s fresh in my mind, but I can’t imagine it will make much of a series. They could stretch it to a feature length doc maybe, but it’s essentially just the story of four dickheads. I very much doubt we’re going to be in Defiant Ones territory! But you never know, I hope it’s worth a watch.

    Fans of budgie-smugglers will not find themselves disappointed.

    There’s a good doc on Netflix called Holy Hell, might be of particular interest to people who enjoyed Wild Wild Country as it’s also about a cult, but a very different outfit to the Osho set up. It started in Los Angeles in the 1990s and exists still today in a different form in Hawaii. The doc’s made by the guy who was the cult’s videographer so there’s stacks of archive footage. It’s a fascinating film, the cult seemingly starts off as some sort of keep fit / positive thinking / spiritual ballet cult for LA hard bodies led by a weirdly charismatic Speedos aficionado, but of course it’s something very much darker indeed. Well worth a watch.

  12. I got a mini t spin, but I fear my brain is not plastic enough to be able to learn to see the opportunities for them
  13. Using the Joycons is definitely superior to the Pro controller, I got a third place and I can often get into the top 20s and 30s. It's just too fast for me though I think, my brain can't cope as it speeds up! As an experiment I started the game and didn't touch anything - I came 67th, which is better than a lot of games where I've been trying! Also, what an amazing game for a freebie.
