  1. If it wasn't for Bran, Euron would be by far the most annoying clown character in this show.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    As a Brighton fan, I desparately want this to be true but I fear we might scrape a draw against Cardiff given how we struggled against Huddersfield a few weeks ago. Wolves are simply much better than us (that win against you earlier in the season aside) so our poor current form coupled with our abysmal away form will probably result in a Wolves win.

    Rllmuk Fantasy Premier League 2018/19

    Captained Duffy and even though he shipped 5 he is on 0 which, when I consider that I captained Pogba earlier in the season when he missed a penalty and got a card ending up on -2, is a passable result given the horrendous scoreline.

    Rllmuk Fantasy Premier League 2018/19

    As a Brighton fan, I'm pleased to see so many people activating the awesome power of Shane Duffy. As a fantasy manager, I don't know if it is the most wise course of action but I'm all aboard the Duffy train.

    Now TV

    If you're over 30 or wear glasses (or both) it's fine. You'll find that Internet people will use hyperbole like "worse than DVD!" or "like a PSOne/VHS tape!" but if you're happy with how something like BBC1 (non HD) looks on your TV now, then it is no worse than that in my experience. Obviously it is dependent on the app you're using (I find Now TV's apps vary wildly depending on the device), the bandwidth you have available and whether or not you're actually watching it as opposed to looking at your phone instead but I think it is good enough, just not stellar.

    The first one is still the best one

    The original Silent Hill is still my favourite. The sequels I've played are confusing nonsense by comparison although I admit, I haven't played them all, so there might be a secret gem out there.

    Star Trek Discovery

    Voyager was terrible but had a few initially interesting alien races which didn't really get developed (Vidians, those space CIA guys and early species 8472) but I suppose you have to balance them against the terrible ideas of the Kazon and the space dustmen. I'm not sure Discovery has anything like that but I still prefer it to Voyager although I did like Year of Hell and the one where the invisible aliens were banging nails into everyone's head.

    A movie watchers blog

    Cecil B Demented First time I've watched this in 10 years. Watch this for the myriad of quotable lines ("Tell me about Mel Gibson's goddam cock and balls"; "I'm ashamed of my heterosexuality"), the sets which are Wes Anderson before he started making ambitious cutaways or the soundtrack. It's a goddam masterpiece unless you hate John Waters.

    Star Trek Discovery

    Remember Sarek at the beginning of this season? I genuinely thought he was a force ghost that only Burnham could see because of her mind meld but it turned out he was present on the ship and everyone else was simply ignoring him.

    I think woman-McCoy is good if she's used sparingly.

    Guilty Pleasures

    Maybe it's a "films that are generally panned or forgotten about" thread? My nomination is Adam Sandler's 2005 remake of "The Longest Yard". I found the cast surprsingly likeable maybe perhaps because there were loads of them and, outside of Sandler and Chris Rock, they don't get much screen time so not really enough time to grate. In retrospect, the representation of trans women possbily wouldn't stand up to scrutiny today and as I haven't seen it in years, may be a bit cringe worthy, but I found the downfall of Sandler's character at the beginning to be perhaps a reflection on how he saw his own career. But maybe I'm reading too much into it. I really must get around to watching the 1974 Burt Reynolds version.

    Guilty Pleasures

    I love that, in all the more recent F&F films, they solve all their unrelated problems by driving real fast and looking determined.
  14. I really like Only Lovers Left Alive although I accept that a number of people find it pretentious nonsense, so I'm pretty hyped for this.
