    Rllmuk Fantasy Premier League 2018/19

    Also Aguero captain here. Still have another 4 playing tomorrow night.
  2. I don't really know what that means. Is it just an award for biggest box office? As an aside, it is disappointing that future archaeologists or trans humans like the ones at the end of AI will unearth so many Funko Pops and assume that they were this society's most venerated religious icons, loved by all.

    The Meg - Jason Statham vs Giant Shark

    A reference to a tortured product placement scene for a brand of Chinese milk in one of the Transformers films (not the last Knight - the one before). It was very much like the Acura advert in the middle of the Battle for New York in the first Avengers film.

    83 points here. Only 2 mistakes were swapping Jiminez for Ings before the start of the season and not captaining Mane, but who would do that if they had Salah in their team?

    The Meg - Jason Statham vs Giant Shark

    That isn't a bad thing. Or maybe it is. I dunno. The rest of the world has had Western pop-culture imperialism for decades and now we're seeing the tide turning. I envisage that we'll see an increasing number of films featuring lengthy product placements for milk which we can't buy because we're heading into an era where films aren't made primarily for our market, but have a global reach and actors who are recognisable to us.

    The Meg - Jason Statham vs Giant Shark

    This was better than Deep Blue Sea and a number of the Mega Shark Syfy films. Obviously if you hate that sort of Syfy fodder then avoid this. There is some top scenery chewing though. Also, it is the most "Chinese money funded this" film to date.

    Star Trek - Jean-Luc Picard returns

    If they do have ships, I want all external shots of them to be upside down or sideways or something.

    Your unearthed gems

    Yes! It's so 90s even though it was made in 2002. Talking of road movies, Dead End is worth a look as is Two Lane Blacktop.

    Your unearthed gems

    Sleeping Dogs Lie - I haven't seen it in a while but used to watch it all the time. Tape - A sort of Sartre hell room thing. Interview (2007) - Another hell room where you can't trust sleazy Steve Buscemi or Sienna Miller. I don't know if any of these count as hidden gems, but they're certainly worth a watch IMO.
  11. Why can't any of these studios revive Aliens/Terminator/Robocop/Predator in the same respectful manner as something like Paddington when it was brought back in 2015? Or at least do an Aliens vs Paddington crossover.
  12. My surprising straight to Netflix discovery was Wheelman. Following Mark Kermode's thing about heist movies, this one showed up as I was browsing and it is kind of worth most people's time mostly because it is 85 minutes long and I found it fun to spot the tropes. Shot almost entirely from inside the car, the majority of the drama takes place on the phone (a bit like Buried or the "Baby" episode of Supernatural), they manage to keep things interesting until the final scene.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018)

    I know a lot of action films are plotted around their big action set pieces but this felt more obviously like they thought about the 3 scenes and then worked backwards. I only saw it on Friday and really can't remember much about it apart from Halo, disco bathroom and choplifter the movie.

    My favourite episode was the TV show episode. It really was very well observed from the source material and very well put together. I hope they get a third series. It inspired me to find my VHS collection fervently bought from HMV during my teenage years in 1990/91. Not sure why they were a 15 or an 18. Those terrible Kate Nash raps really are true to the original.

    Hope they don't skimp on the future swears like they did with Dredd. Stakk!
