  1. Rogue 3

    Creed 3

    Nice list Zathras - only change I might make is swapping 1 & 3 round, but agree with the rest there mate. Also haven’t see Creed 3, but enjoyed the first 2 a lot!
  2. Finished up the 2nd season and agree the Kahhori episode was one of the strongest. Also enjoyed the Hela & Nebula episodes. The others were much of a muchness. The 1602 one was just nonsense, as was the Christmas one, although I did raise a smile at one or two of the Die Hard references. Personally I am happy with self contained What If’s - I have no desire for them all to be linked somehow. But that’s the way they go.
  3. Carl Weathers has passed away at the age of 76. Very sad news to hear - what a legend
  4. Thanks for the tip! Ordered the first book, so will hopefully find some time to get my reading hat back on!
  5. Yes, super close to the end there. Well worth going back to, as once done once, those chase sequences can be skipped on replaying chapters with all your levels and gear. Highly recommend Crisis core as well - lots of stuff in it, but story wise you can knock it out in a week of evening play, no dangers. Or watch this guy play it - his enthusiasm is superb, and he knows all things FF! And this is the start of his play thorough of Remake as well: Sometimes we just don’t have the time for a full play through! I do like listening along to them while working!
  6. I can’t say how much I am looking forward to this! Out on 29th Feb! My love for these games goes back to playing an imported NTSC version of FF6 on the SNES (it was never released here on PAL in the UK originally, only many years later), and bought a PS1 purely because FF7 was going to be release on it. And it was a legendary game for many reasons! FF7 Remake was a superb start to this next gen trilogy. Not just a remake, the “whispers” in the game indicate things are literally being remade, so there were subtle differences to show that it’s something fresh and new - not everything will happen as we remember…. The prequel PSP game Crisis Core was re-released last year and they really got rid of the bad elements of game play to leave the brilliant story of Zack. Someone we potentially will see a lot more of in parts 2 and 3 of this trilogy due to the above changes - well worth a play in prep. And so to part 2! We leave the city of Midgar and head out into the world. These trailers are superb - if you played the original game, there will be a lot to recognise! Trailer 1 Trailer 2 Counting down the days!
  7. Love it! And totally agree!
  8. So, not sure why I haven’t watched it prior to now, but finally watched Excalibur! An interesting cast with lots that go on to greater fame of course, and mixed with a lot of classic thespians who are chewing up the dialogue with relish! Very odd casting by Boorman for his 2 kids (not exactly cheery roles for them!), and lots of mystical, arty elements in there, but all enjoyable. Only tricky part was from more or less half way in where it’s hard not to think about Monty Pythons Holy Grail in certain scenes! Good film, glad to have caught it at long last!
  9. Defo - usually have a book on the go and have a read when the wife puts some reality nonsense on the box! Various on the shelf, but I do always drift back to a re-read of “The First 15 Lives of Harry August” which is just a great read. Series I am currently reading is Awaken Online - no highbrow stuff here, just quite a fun series in the style of Ready Player One, but where the lead is playing a dark character in the online world.
  10. Series 2 now available - watched the first episode this evening and plan to not binge this, but enjoy it over time. See if I can stick to that! Reading the synopsis, I was wondering if this was the best pick to open the new series up, but that was great fun - Nebula was fantastic and heroic, plus nice support from other less featured characters from the MCU - nice start!
  11. Urrgh yes - the big reset button. With you there pal - hate it!
  12. Hope you all had a good Christmas! After all the fun with our family and seeing my 5 year old having “The best Christmas ever!”, was nice to settle down in the evening and catch up on the Christmas special - The Church on Ruby Road. This was Ncuti Gatwa’s first full story as the 15th Doctor and introduced the new companion Ruby Sunday, played by Millie Gibson. Really fun adventure, a lot better than recent Xmas specials for sure. Lots of mysteries that RTD likes to sow the seeds for - who is Ruby’s mum, who is the Mrs Flood? Strong guest appearances by Davina (recreating her role on her show about tracking down family via DNA), and Anita Dobson coming in as the reoccurring character who knows too much - fascinating look down the camera at the end! Very rare to break the 4th wall in this show! For those overseas, the song was released as a single with all proceeds going the charity Children in Need. The additional elements for the song with the Doctor and Ruby adding their lines to the song was great fun! Very nice festive treat! New series coming in May at long last! The specials have helped, but long overdue the new series!
  13. Ahhh. Well that was not quite what I was hoping for. I quite liked the opening 20 mins or so, then it turned into a Dirty Dozen style recruitment where each character has 5 mins of focus, then next to nothing for the rest of the film. Felt like a lot was cut on characterisation as the ending made it feel like you knew these people better? I agree that there was a lot of stuff out of focus. Most notable was when the girl and the robot were talking by the stream. Slow mo - jeez man. Enough. The main lead wasn’t convincing either. Not drawn into any of the characters with the exception maybe of the robot. I’m sure I will watch part 2 in April still, but man that was disappointing.
  14. Nice one - hope you enjoy it! I’m looking forward to catching it, think it hits us here in the UK on Friday. Yes, absolutely agree with the background! Fingers crossed it will be a nice pre-Christmas treat!
