    Days Gone - Sons of Anarchy x Last of Us

    Think this is going to be a real mixed bag review wise, depending on the focus/predilections of the reviewer. Mechanics wise it's probably a 5/10 game, world building and story wise it's probably a 9/10. Going to be watching with interest.
  2. TLJ had good bits and TLJ had abject fucking horrible bits. Whether you liked it or loathed it, in tone and world building it was not a sequel to the Force Awakens, in the same way that Majora's mask was not a direct sequel to Ocarina of Time. RJ should have been given licence to make his strange blue titty milking scenes in a stand alone spin off film, not the main trilogy, not the story started by some one with different intentions entirely. It was a creative mistake. I hope JJ steadies the ship, and RJ can make his stuff too somewhere else where I don't have to necessarily watch it.
  3. Now that Leia has shown that floating about in space at will is a force power, the Emperor can't have died after being thrown down a big hole. Them's the rules now. Blame RJ. P.S. I hate the fact that Leia floated about in space at will. It was utterly shit.

    Yes. It's actually on now in the US in its original form as a one woman play.

    Fleabag - BBC3 Comedy

    I loved it. An amazing ending that left me .And then belly laugh when she I like this series more than the first, which brilliant as it was, did feel at time like stand up and sketch material quilted together into a sitcom. This had such a focused storyline, and had such amazing cast of character actors, that it felt like a brilliant piece of ensemble theatre. I really really loved it.

    Maybe they could add kind of coin-operated binoculars at certain waypoints of Hyrule to let you experience 'being' in those places while taking in the view. Not sure on the tech demands but maybe if you were rooted to the spot there would be scope to let you look around 360 and be 'in' the environment.

    Clearly it ends with her getting herself run over because she is so devastated that her Priest lover slept with her sister. It's like poetry, it rhymes.

    Solid little thrillers

    I guess what i mean is The Fugitive is one of those rare films that is so much more than the sum of its parts. The story is generic as they come, there's no stand out bad guy, no gimmick, not even a love interest (though I know that's what Julianne Moore was meant to be until she was edited out) and Ford plays it so quiet and reserved - yet somehow the film is just fantastic. The pacing is just incredible. TLJ is obviously amazing but even if you took him out the film it would still sing a sweet song. It's just so rare for thrillers to be honed down and quietly confident like this - not throwing explosions and twists at you every 5 minutes. Going to have to watch it again now!

    Solid little thrillers

    I'm not sure why but The Fugitive is so very very watchable. Must have watched it 20 odd times over my life and could happily sit through it now. And while we're reminiscing over Harrison Ford thriller classics (and Linkster has already mentioned the amazing Frantic) I'd like to add Witness to the canon.

    Akira the film had a 2hr runtime and cost $9m - but that was using old school hand painted cells. The comic is 38 volumes, so assuming conservatively that one volume = a single one hour episode, a comprehensive series authentic to the hand painted style of the original film would cost ~ $171m Oh well. Back to the world of dreams.

    The film wasn't just a trimmed version of the comic it was in some cases utterly different. A long time since I read them (collected them as a teenager!) but I remember Joker being a good guy for a start, and the American military being a heavy presence.

    They should just make an extended Manga TV series based on the comic. Fuck live action.
