    Food Prepping

    Are you rinsing your rice before you cook it? That tends to remove a noticeable amount of excess starch.

    Far Cry 5

    Pretty sure you can. I think it's in the tagging system on one of the shoulder buttons, or possibly just a d-pad direction.

    Thor: Ragnarok

    Finally watched this tonight, and it was absolutely superb. If anyone other than James Gunn has to do GOTG, it really should be Taika Waititi. It's easily the funniest Marvel movie, and gave the whole franchise some real texture - and a reason to exist. Might be tied for my favourite with GOTG1.
  4. This is absolute truth, and one of multiple notes in the 'Why Mark Wahlberg makes everything* worse' dossier. *Basketball Diaries and Boogie Nights notwithstanding.

    A Quiet Place

    Ha! Yeah, I enjoyed the film plenty for what it was, but exposition-o-board was a bit much.

    Absolutely bang-up job by TJ. I don't love the guy, but it's hard not to root for him against Conor-lite. I wish TJ was a bit bigger, as I'd love to see him shake up 145, and free up 135 for a whole new generation. The DJ fight was close, but I don't think he did enough to guarantee a victory. Cejudo wanted it more that night, and did incredibly well to overcome that gnarly ankle rolling. There's gotta be an immediate rematch if he wants it, but maybe DJ working through 135 would be more compelling. Cejudo calling out TJ was bollocks. I hate people who've barely drawn breath as champ calling for 2-div shots. Benavidez is a great fight for him next, and I'd love to see him finally get the belt.
  7. Ever since I saw Tickled, I was hoping that he'd pick up as a sillier replacement Louis Theroux and do some Weird Weekends type business. Gutted if he's gone more serious than Louis already. Since he's the most serious man in the world now, when he's working.

    I want it to be 220 minutes of angry Olyphant moustache-acting.

    Guacamelee! 2 - release August 21, 2018

    The day before my birthday. Excellent gift, Drinkbox. I'm a little sad they've apparently toned down the meme references, but I trust them to make another game that I absolutely love.
  11. Agreed, it looks interesting and a bit different. I'd rather have people try things and not quite hit the mark than give in to public naysaying all the time. I'll never understand the way people hyperbolise about mainstream films with such negative language. In a worst case scenario, it's not as good as it could have been. these entertainments are never actually 'awful', 'dreadful' or 'horrendous'. Those opinions sound like they must be really stressful.

    The UFC's mighty marketing machine once again sees a wild shark-tank of a division turn into a 'who gives a fuck?' title challenge. I swear, if anyone with the smallest promotional instinct was involved in the higher echelons of the company, they'd be challenging established sports. Instead, they're increasingly dreary. The only fucking thing to look forward to is Conor's 4D chess. His photo with Putin was all about laying the groundwork for a Moscow showdown with Khabib. If only Dana was 1% as savvy as Mac is. I really don't like the guy, but he's always looking to the future, and doing the promo job his idiot bosses simply cannot manage,

    Y: The Last Man

    Only saw it this week, but I found him totally amazing in Killing of a Sacred Deer - next level stuff from such a young guy. Unless he drops off incredibly sharply, I'd probably watch anything with him in.

    Killing Of A Sacred Deer

    Colour me in the minority here! I watched this last night and absolutely loved it. More than The Lobster. Plenty of absurd scenes and lines, and I was laughing out loud more than once. All while keeping things unsettling and suspenseful. And everyone was excellent in it, especially Barry Keoghan.
