    Jordan Peele's 'Us'

    As much as I disagree with your appraisal Vs Signs, I was more suggesting that Jordan Peele might not actively be trying to establish himself as a One Twist Pony. Which was certainly M Night's M.O in the earlier days.

    Jordan Peele's 'Us'

    I had a lot of fun watching this. It was inventive in small - yet remarkable - ways. Excellent performances, and some beautiful shots too. It won't stay with me as long as Get Out, and I don't think it has as much to say, but I'll certainly get in line for his next one.

    Baba Is You (PC, Switch) - 13th March

    I know what you mean. I'm not actually looking forward to more elements being introduced as it takes a pure idea and makes it convoluted. Like in the Talos Principle, when they introduced the time record mechanic. I trudged through, but it was a layer that pushed my experience from 'amazed wonder' to 'quiet sighing' at times.

    Till's a troglodyte, glad that Masvidal switched him off so emphatically. Masvidal feels like a genuine maniac, and I don't think he's necessarily a great guy despite his new anti-smack-talk stance, but I'd like to see him get a title shot at this point in his career. I don't know what they do with Gunnar Nelson at this point. He looks good, then looks bad. And I still feel like we rarely see the grappling that made him famous. Dom Reyes is still a decent prospect, but I don't think he won. None of the new breed of LHWs seem that impressive. Johnny Walker's fun though, so let's see where he goes.

    Switch - Too many ports?? (Ports Die Twice)

    I don't mind ports, but the ones I want are ones I've invariably bought on Steam already. The only real problem is that I look forward to games using the Switch in unique ways that can't be replicated on other platforms. And ports don't do that, by their nature.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    I've never been as disgusted by a film as some in here, nor have I ever walked out of a film. Or not finished it if I could stay awake. After all, if they're saving all of their creativity for something, there's a decent chance it's the denouement, right? So I'm not sure what the worst film I've ever seen is, but a recent trip to see Escape Room certainly showed me the dodgiest script I can remember making it to the big screen. The whole thing came across as something written in a second language. The eight people in the cinema all had a bit of a laugh as the credits rolled.

    Baba Is You (PC, Switch) - 13th March

    Absolutely loving this one, right up my street. I feel like the first half dozen levels should be mandatory at all job interviews, just to see how people approach problem solving. Still not sure why doesn't work as a function on Lake level 13 though...

    Ori and the Blind Forest

    Ditto. I found the movement incredibly satisfying, and the failures were a quick route to improvement. In Hollow Knight I didn't like the combat, the movement, or the fact that long trudges after dying felt like I was wasting my life. Bring on Ori 2.

    And yet his principles allow him to hang out with fucking Kadyrov. LAST STOP ON THE KHABIB TRAIN. EVERYBODY OFF.

    There are no out of turn fights to make at LHW really. Just brand the whole thing as 'LHW: REBORN' or some shit, and promote the hell out of it. Oh wait. He'll probably just do Gus/Glover for an interim title for some reason. Can you imagine if Rumble could be arsed hitting 205 and came back for this tournament? That would be amazing.

    Doesn't need to be a one-night tourney. In fact, it's better than it's not - gives some time to hype up the lesser-known winners. The bouts should, however, all take place on the same event. Including alternate bouts. Make the whole night about one thing, and make everyone on the card a part of that story.

    Real quick turnaround for Johnny Walker there! But he's a very intriguing prospect. As unlikely as it sounds, Askren actually finishing Lawler would be great for the division. Lawler has nothing left to prove, and has peaked (or has to have, surely?!). Askren can be immediate interest in the division. Surely Jones walks this. LHW needs rebooting without him. I can see Reyes getting a title shot soon, and his resume is hardly sparkling. Even though he is pretty great. Dream booking: Jones wins and announces HW move. Then an LHW title tourney builds the next wave of stars: Reyes, Pedro, Walker, Cirkunov, Krylov, Santos... maybe Rockhold and Yoel?

    A movie watchers blog

    After Kermode 's comments on it being provocative, I caught Piercing this weekend. It's an interesting stylistic experiment - model city sets, interesting performances and some strong violence. But it feels like it's over in the blink of an eye without really exploring things. Felt like it could've been condensed to 20 mins in an anthology film and not really lost anything. Didn't love it, didn't hate it. Probably not the response they want for cinema pitched nearer the 'extreme' end.

    Dimwit promotion again. They just can't seem to build stars without phoney belts. It's such a shame that they're fast-tracking everyone to dual title shots too. We waited years for an Anderson/GSP superfight that never happened, and now we have had 3 Champ-Champs. Probably 3.5 with Holloway soon.
