  1. What a crazy penultimate race! Never seen anything like it in all the years I have been watching! Points are level going into the final race next Sunday! Can’t wait!
  2. First 2 episodes dropped today in Disney+ and me and the Mrs have just been watching these. It’s interesting how it feels quite normal to start off a new show with elements taken from a block buster film! The opening scenes set on 2012 give a nice, and relatively quick, back story for our new character. Some very nice scenes in these 2 episodes - the theatre at the start had some fun moments, and a “fight” scene in episode 2 in Central Park was similarly entertaining. Not sure on Kate Bishop herself at the moment - she goes from moody, highly skilled 20 year old to lighthearted
  3. Another strong episode! Still lots to reveal, but really enjoyed that one. The Sontarans were just the right side of serious objective along with mocking their odd ways! Cliffhanger suggests next week will be a big one on plot reveal potentially!
  4. Yeah, agreed Odine. Similar upgrade to what was done with Mass Effect trilogy most likely.
  5. What did you and your kid make of it Tank? I was pleased with it - fast paced, good set up of new companion, better interaction with The Doctor & Yaz than there was with there being too many companions in the previous 2 series. Lots and lots still to be explained, nice start! It all depends on what is to come as to how this episode will be remembered in the future I guess, but fingers crossed!
  6. Wow! Explosive start to the new series! Hope it can deliver on all the exciting setups over the course of the remaining 5 parts!
  7. Yes I agree Choc - spot on with what you are saying. The origin was brilliantly done in Casino Royale and we don’t need to revisit that so soon. We had 20 films prior to that with 5 different Bonds and so I see no need to start again. Drop him in either wrapping up a previous mission pre-titles (Indy style) or a cheeky teaser for what’s to come which is the standard for Bond. Maybe they go more with the stealth than the brute force of Craig as well? Be interesting to see who they cast, and whether any of the others stay on - M, Q, Moneypenny. I get the feeling we might see changes the
  8. Ok, now I feel safer talking more on the plot as a few of you have seen it. I loved it - didn’t feel it drag at all. My thoughts since watching it that I hinted at above are on the villain, Safin. He was much better realised in the opening flashback, and should have remained more of a henchman type character as on his return to the film in the “present day”, he didn’t contribute nearly enough. This could have been primed for a great finish with Blofeld and Bond at the end. But that’s my only criticism. Thought Lea Seydoux was excellent. He’s been a great Bond. Dalton was in this
  9. Yeah, I know what you mean about Spectre, but I’ve come to like it more on recent rewatch. Still no higher than 4th place in the Daniel Craig list though! This was out first trip to the cinema this year as things get back to normal(ish). I did manage to sneak in a trip in September 2020 to see Tenet in a screen with only 1 other person! So that was as safe as I could get I guess. Had to watch that one! Having thought about it in the week, there are a couple of things I would have changed with No Time to Die (surrounding the bad guys), but that did not spoil it at all! Great fun!
  10. Not sure if there is a big love of the Bond films on here, but I’ve always been a big fan! Me and the wife were at the cinema last Saturday to see the latest, and what a good film it was! Definitely one for the big screen and brought the Daniel Craig era to a close. He has been a great Bond, with only Quantum of Solace being the weaker link in the chain. Tough act to follow for the next chap to play him. Think it’s released in the US a little later than here in the UK for some reason, but would definitely recommend it.
  11. Yes, I’m in the same boat here. Watched the first one, but just seems a little off and have just not been interested in the others. Might well have ago at some point, but not for a good while!
  12. They say “never go back” and I hope he doesn’t regret his decision. I am excited though by the prospect of what he can bring. Completely with you on Capaldi & Whittaker. Big fan of the both as actors but they have had really poor writing during their time. Exception is Heaven Sent which was so, so good. And there have been a few others of note. I read that JMS is rebooting Babylon 5, so that will be interesting! A big fan of the show. Zathras might be pleased!
  13. Agreed - enjoyed the 2 part finale but there were episodes that were weak for sure - the Thor one in particular. But overall, good stuff.
  14. Russell T Davies returning as showrunner for Who after Chibbers steps down! Shock (but great!) news! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-58682472
  15. Rogue 3

    Matrix 4

    Yes, films 2 & 3 were not what we hoped for after the superb first film, but fingers crossed we get a good 4th film for Christmas! Fishburne apparently wasn’t asked to participate in the film according to interviews. Weaving was one they were after, but was tied up in a theatrical production so the dates just couldn’t work. Nice trailer, fingers crossed for a good film that makes sense!
  16. Limited info, but it’s getting a remake for PS5 which I am really looking forward to! Classic! https://blog.playstation.com/2021/09/09/star-wars-knights-of-the-old-republic-remake-is-the-legendary-tale-remade-on-playstation-5/amp/
  17. Ah man - Miranda has all the curves in all the right places! She stayed alive for me - I didn't break up properly with her when the subject came up on the Citadel (hedging my bets!) and after that by the time I next saw her I had committed to Liara, so seemed to play out fine and she survived the game. Sounds like a nice scene with Jack! Ah ok - so maybe just doing it a bit early on possibly, and maybe adjustment on skill upgrades. I had been using Lash as my bonus as kind of like the Jedi (probs Sith actually!) feel to it! Will keep those tips in mind next time. Enjoyed p
  18. Ha ha! I know right! Definitely the best! A lot of people said the Tali romance is quite good, so might try that on next run through.
  19. Yep totally! I think it was based on an interview Lucas had done for the fan club magazine if I remember. Volcano was defo mentioned (in my head at least!) and so that was the image with him falling and being burnt by the lava. I was born in '76, so was only able to see ROTJ at the cinema first time round (having watched ANH and ESB soooo many times at home - a regular Sunday treat to be able to pick one to watch! But now being a dad myself, it's clear to see it was a treat for my parents to shut me up for 2 hours! Ha ha!), but me and my mates at school here in England had very si
  20. After taking my time (and also due to a busy old month or so!), finished up ME3 late last night! A strange one - I was aware of the negative feeling towards the game, but I enjoyed playing it. There are just a few things that let it down when you look back on the experience. Totally agree with Tank on the fetch missions which became silly in terms of minimal rewards for jumping all over the galaxy. But biggest gripe is what I mentioned earlier with the Earth being battered (along with many other homeworlds) and we are flying around finding a statue or a fossil... And the Crucible
  21. Nice trailer! Looking forward to seeing this one!
  22. Ahh - not much love for this one on here. Might benefit from a binge watch maybe now that all episodes from S1 are out there. Final episode was last Friday and I thought what that did with the location they were at was suitably sad despite what was done there. I liked what they did with this first series in setting up the early elements of the rebellion and Crosshairs interesting character development. Special mention to Dee Bradley Baker and his voice talents. Hope he got paid well for doing all those characters and making them so different!
  23. Good fun! I like the way that his being there makes such a positive impact on all the characters featured (spoilers!), compared to Quill! Nice dedication at the end - still can’t believe he’s gone just as we got to know him. Very sad.
  24. Fair do’s! I’m relaxed about the animation style after experiencing so many variations with the Doctor Who animations of the missing episodes! This weeks release of the Web of Fear episode 3 that is (currently) lost is so, so different to all the styles that have gone before! But just grateful to be able to watch them with the original audio tracks that fans recorded back in the ‘60’s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_Who_missing_episodes?wprov=sfti1
  25. It powered the suit, and so they got it back when the captured Steve in they train incident.
