  1. I played it on PC and didn't encounter any issues, and I was going to say maybe it's an issue with the console ports but I bet you played it on PC, too.
  2. Well done, man, that's a tough match (and a good feeling when you finally nail it).
  3. Thought at 2 hours + this would feel a little bloated, but it breezed by. Loads of fun, a couple of properly touching moments, one wonderfully inventive sequence that's trippier than anything in Doctor Strange, and MJ and Peter really *are* a cute couple. Oh, and easily two of the best Marvel post-credits scenes to date. My son LOVED it; practically bounced out of the cinema, absolutely beaming, which was the icing on the cake.
  4. There's a brief moment near the end that just destroyed me. Wonderful film.
  5. I was genuinely quite angry when Toy Story 4 was announced. How dare they spoil that perfect ending. Well. For my money, it doesn't quite match 3, but it's a worthy epilogue. Delightful, heartwarming, and just maybe the funniest one of the lot.
  6. Yeah, I thought this. It's not as if he was in a room in a building, there were loads of places he could have got a better angle.
  7. No one was suggesting that, he was responding to the bit where you said the one female role was the fictional one. This whole thing is just a silly misunderstanding.
  8. It definitely improves as it goes on. I liked it, but the five-star reviews were slightly generous. Its broader moments don't always knit well with its indie sensibilities, and there's a streak of upper-middle-class smugness (I wondered at one point if Crazy Rich Caucasians might have been a better title) running through it. But the lead pair have great chemistry – I thought Kaitlyn Dever was particularly good – it's genuinely funny and refreshingly frank, and I found the moments of tenderness in the third-act quietly moving. As directorial debuts go, it has me looking forward to whatever Olivia Wilde does next.
  9. I was so tightly wound by the last 20 minutes that I ached when I got up afterwards. Gruelling, brilliant stuff.
  10. Took the boy this morning. It's not very good. The script is abysmal, with dialogue so predictable that half the time you can say the next line before the actor has delivered it. The human cast has grown too unwieldy which means they all feel underused, even though every scene with them leaves you twiddling your thumbs waiting for the monsters to show up again. There's an early development involving one main character that doesn't really make sense, the geography of the film is all over the place, and while the monster battles have their moments – including a few strikingly beautiful shots – that's not enough to compensate. It's dumb, but not in a fun way. Better than Hellboy, but that's not saying much.
  11. The most chilling moment for me this week was something they didn't show, and then the line that came shortly after. Horrifying, brilliant TV. This deserves every award it will surely, surely get.
  12. Can't recommend Knock Down The House enough: it's a documentary that follows four working-class women running grassroots campaigns in the 2018 midterms, one of them being Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She's the obvious star, but the whole thing works as both a fascinating expose of the cynicism and complacency at the heart of US politics and an uplifting triumph-of-the-underdog story. And the ending, even though you know what's coming, is enough to give anyone goosebumps. Fantastic stuff.
