  1. Maximum Overdrive x Doc Hollywood = Pixar's Cars
  2. The Day the Bat Cried
  3. People don't want to subscribe to dozens of different streaming services, who'd have think it. https://variety.com/2022/biz/news/peacock-loss-2021-more-doubled-1235164939/
  4. After I got over the Dear Deidre presentation style, I was enjoying As Dusk Falls, but it’s like you can feel the budget ebbing away by the second in Book 2. Way less interactivity and difficult choices. I thought was at about the 2/3 mark of the game and then it ended really abruptly. I just assumed there'd be a book 3 or at least one in the near future. But reading the web, nothing at all has been announced so that really was it or the off chance of a sequel way down the line. As much as I enjoyed the first half, overall I found it a pretty unsatisfying experience.
  5. Same here. I played Alyx wirelessly in a large open space three rooms away from a PC that cost a lot less than a PS5 and it performed great. I was amazed how simple it was to get up and running.
  6. Just finished The Dark Pictures Anthology Silent Hill Little Hope on PS+ Extra. As someone who felt Man of Medan was a huge letdown I would have said that this was a big improvement. Then I got to the ending (and I believe I probably got the best one) and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a game shit the bed so much in its closing moments. I actually wish they’d just played this as a straightforward spooky story instead of tacking on the laziest twist imaginable.
  7. So stupid that if I want to watch the latest series of Bosch (I know it’s technically a spin-off, but it really is just a continuation), I have to watch a ‘free’ version with annoying adverts on a platform I’m paying a subscription for. Whereas I could happily track down a hooky version in about 2 minutes with no ads.
  8. The ending is Us would have worked if, say, David Lynch was in the director's seat as the whole thing was absolutely begging for a hefty does of his hazy nightmare logic style of filmmaking (see Fire Walk With Me which I will happily spend pages arguing with anyone is one of the greatest horror films ever made). Instead I was sat watching the third act just thinking this is really fucking stupid. The problem is Peele ddidn't really have it in him to pull of “surreal” and “fanstastical' in the way that film needed. The issue with Us definitely isn't unanswered questions, if anything it’s that it answers too much. Obviously that's my own subjective opinion and if what it was going for worked for you, then more power to you. Also can we stop with the lol u like Cinemasins shit trying to shut down discussion.
  9. The main issue is that it’s a great basic premise that’s inherently limited. You have two basic stages show future theme park working okay and then show future theme park once everything’s gone to shit. That’s why it worked well as a film. As a long-form series you quickly burn through the attraction of the setting and end up with whatever the hell this now. Crichton’s successor to Westworld, Jurassic Park has also suffered with diminishing returns (not in terms of box office) as they try to stretch the premise beyond breaking point. Oh we’re going to try setting up a dinosaur theme park for a third time.
  10. https://www.rollingstone.com/tv-movies/tv-movie-features/justice-league-the-snyder-cut-bots-fans-1384231/ Other stuff in there includes Visionary Director Zack Snyder contacting journalists who had written up articles on simple castings announcements on DC projects and asking them to change their stories to his liking as it would be a shame if the fans, who I have no control over of course, go after you. In the manner of Paulie Walnuts shaking down a local business.
