Re: Rolling Stone's Top 40 Sci-Fi Movies of the 21st Century

Amazing. I’m really looking forward to hearing what you thought. Well I took my time but I've finally watched it. I think that, having seen a few time loop films/series in the past year, I've got a good idea of how things will play out and it wasn't until about halfway that it threw me any curve-ba...

Re: Comfort Gaming

I like to chuck on one of those retro games collections e.g Sega Genesis Collection. Then I can just play for a quick 10-30 minutes on a few different games, easy to jump in and out. Dynasty Warriors 3 can be a nice relaxing way to kill a couple of hours (and a couple thousand soldiers) but not a ne...

Re: Rolling Stone's Top 40 Sci-Fi Movies of the 21st Century

So this thread reminded me I had been meaning to get around to a low-budget Spanish sci-fi called Time Crimes. Ignore the name, I know it sounds like an 80s B movie but it's pretty great lol. It's no where near as convuluted but if you've seen stuff like Dark or Primer you'll have some idea what yo...

Re: Rolling Stone's Top 40 Sci-Fi Movies of the 21st Century

Wow, there have been some great Sci-Fi films this century! I've seen the majority of these, somehow I still haven't gotten to Gravity (I know).

I never take issue with what ends up on these lists but just going to take this opportunity to shout out Coherence, it'd probably be in my top 10.

Re: Let's have a thread about the virus, then. We might as well.

For anyone who has been struggling with it all, I would strongly recommend turning off news notifications on your phone, try to unplug from the wider world and tune back in every now and then when you're up for it. I know this advice has been shared a lot but it's worth repeating. I'm still working ...

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake

Whether you're coming to it for the first time or have played the original game a thousand times you're obviously going to have negative or positive opinions on this one. Criticism is as valid as it is with any game. Being "bothered" by it like actually angry about it's existence, feeling like they'...

I really don't know why anyone would be bothered about what they do with the remake when the original still exists.

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake

I'm still not sure where I'm at with this remake. I think I'm fine with just ignoring it's existence for now, I'm not sure I need a remake of this game like I used to and I haven't really bothered with any FF game past 10 anyway. At the same time I almost feel like I'm obliged to give it a go, there...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

I haven't seen the others to compare but you're the first person I've seen say this so I'm a little curious to know which ones you think are better? The 1933 version for a start. Directed by George Cukor and starring Katherine Hepburn. Just a different pedigree of director and actress as far as I'm...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

I bloody loved Uncut Gems, such a thrilling experience to see it in the cinema. I was buzzing for a few hours after I left.
What impressed me most was the way it managed to tap into the pure adrenaline rush and excitement of high stakes gambling without ever making it seem attractive.

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Which younger actors are missing out on these huge chances because of that effect? Very good point... plenty of actors out there looking for a chance to work with someone like Scorsese! It is a shame for them (and to a lesser extent us) to miss out. This film was kind of a passion project for Scors...

Re: 407: Super Mario RPG (: Legend of the Seven Stars)

Fingers crossed it joins the service, but I doubt it'll be in time for the show. Wasn't it a collaboration with Square, maybe that's why they couldn't put it on. But then it was on SNES mini wasn't it? But there aren't any Square games on Switch Online when you'd expect some of them, so maybe they'...
