  1. I think the best line came from the Michael Sheen’s daughter to Thomas Richardson (I remember his character name because that’s my mate’s name): ’Your eyes...have seen things.’ And that gate kicking bit was indeed hilarious.
  2. Yes, that’s right! I loved it, it’s a big pile of hammy schlock with some genuinely mysterious moments, that doesn’t feel the need to avoid or try to explain its logical inconsistencies and is all the better for it. Of course, the biggest mystery was how Thomas Richardson’s face kept mysteriously cleaning itself every five minutes once the action started in earnest.

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    Is Annihalation a Netflix film too? I’ve seen that, and it’s decent. Not excellent, but you’d have to be a moron to suggest it’s mediocre.

    I refuse to believe I just happened to have seen the only Netflix films worth watching, though. I know I’m amazing, but I’m still just a man, subject to fair fortune, as are all men.

    Well, @Chadruharazzeb said ‘films’, and they are unarguably all films. But even if one pretended they’re not, the three ‘films’ you mentioned are clearly not mediocre by any measure, so I don’t know what his point is.
  6. Nice! I’ll look that one up.

    Yes, those three are excellent. Off the top of my head I can also think of What Happened, Miss Simone?, Team Foxcatcher, The Short Game - and that’s without even mentioning Herzog’s superlative Into The Inferno. So that’s seven excellent films off the top of my head. I’ve seen almost nothing off the list of Netflix Originals, so I’m quite confident there are more excellent films than the seven I’ve coincidentally seen. What the ratio of excellent to shit is doesn’t really concern me, though. I’m just bemused that anyone could describe the above seven films as ‘mediocre’ - unless they hadn’t seen them and consequently didn’t know what they were talking about, of course.
  8. Me too! Nothing’s as good as Curtis Mayfield though. I really like the end music too, which I presume is made for the show.

    There are loads of excellent Netflix films - why would they need saving from mediocrity?
  10. I’ve not looked at those yet, but it’s true that any half-decent online scoreboarding would be a significant improvement over Pinball Arcade’s iOS effort.
  11. But it means they can’t bring them to Switch. Based on the horrendous garbage that surrounds the genuinely delightful version of Medieval Madness on the Zen platform, this prospect does not fill me with joy. Although I’ve not tried out PA on Switch yet, it could be just as bad. But that would be quite incredible.

    Better Call Saul!

    And even those are mere bagatelles alongside bits like Walter watching Jesse’s girlfriend OD, the biker gang making Jesse watch his next girlfriend get shot, etc. Gotters is just being silly. There is far more tension across BB than BCS - and that’s naturally because they are completely different shows. Personally I enjoy BCS a lot more, but I think rating them against one another makes little sense unless you have to churn out content for money.

    Nintendo Switch

    Does it have the Official Nintendo Seal of Tat though? Easily worth the £16 markup!
  14. Wow, they got decimated. I note their roster still includes Starship Troopers and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, both wonderful pinners. Other than those though, I think every one I bought on iOS is greyed out.
  15. Is there a list anywhere of what’s still available on PA for Switch? The Nintendo pages are hopelessly out of date (of course).
