Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Cool. I guess community recommendations are a nice way 'in' for us listeners. It's a lottery that 50 people win each year. They're not bad odds!

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Well over 2000. Wow! I don't want to put you on the spot here, but in real terms how many of those are ever likely to result in a show? I've certainly suggested games in the past, and you've been kind enough to add them, but I now know they wouldn't warrant the attention of a full panel. I think yo...

I didn't realise they were being compiled. Please exclude mine. There's no way I'm ranking them!

On the list already, along with its sequel, and Theme Hospital.
How many games are on the list now, Leon? 1000+ surely?

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

The following is my Top 50 in alphabetical order (I'm not going to make the exercise even more pointless by ranking them!). This was quite a sobering process. I've only chosen games that I've actually beaten (except multiplayer/sports titles). And because I rarely finish games, many of my otherwise ...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Your posts in here made me really want Criterion but it's not available in England :( Have you tried the BFI Player? Their collection is also outstanding. There's a huge overlap with Criterion in terms of world cinema classics and it's actually better for 21st century cinema. Plus at £4.99 per mont...

No, it's not your bad. I was being an asshole and I'm sorry. We're just two people looking for different things from a discussion. I'm trying to unwind on my day off, you're trying to write a thesis! :)

Re: Let's rank Tarantino films, for no reason whatsoever...

I genuinely don't understand as to why we're arguing or where all this snark is coming from. :? I took your initial statement as meaning that movie stars were a necessary part of Hollywood filmmaking. If I misunderstood something then I apologize but that's how it read to me and I thought there wer...

Re: Let's rank Tarantino films, for no reason whatsoever...

I get the impression that when people went to see Lord of the Rings, they saw the characters on-screen, whereas when they went to see The Wolf of Wall Street, they went to see a DiCaprio flick. You're not comparing like with like there and I think you know it. Why would an audience, primed to see a...

I even modded it to a Star Wars theme which was cool. That sounds great. Was it just a re-skin or did the text refer to different races, etc? I don't even consider myself a proper Star Wars fan and my hands are shaking at the mere thought of this. To be honest, I can’t remember the text but it was ...

Re: The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

For the most part, I'd say Ksub's right Although, for this series, I'd say you don't necessarily need to have watched the movie beforehand. Seeing as the original was made over 35 years ago, the series was designed for both a new audience who have little to no knowledge of the original and for thos...

Re: The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

I'm always unsure of how to handle prequels (thanks, George!) As a rule of thumb, release order is usually the intended way to watch (or play, read, etc...) any multiple-part series. That's what I've always assumed but then I watched most of the Marvel films out of order. At the time I thought perh...

Re: Let's rank Tarantino films, for no reason whatsoever...

the bigger and more recognizable the actor is, the more difficult it becomes for most audience members to view them as the character they are trying to portray I would imagine that my reaction to City of God or (the original!)

Re: Whatcha Been Listening To?

I dusted off my David Mancuso - The Loft vinyl box-set last night for some disco love. There are very few musical movements more misunderstood than disco, particularly because in its early days it wasn't even a recognisable sound. This collection of so-called 'disco' classics contains house, Europea...
