Re: Your Games of the Decade

2010- Fallout:New Vegas 2011- Dead Space 2 2012- CS: GO 2013- GTA 5 2014- Thief Looks like I haven't really played any games released in 2014; I have Alien Isolation but haven't gotten to it yet :oops:. I played a couple hours of Thief and remember thinking it seemed cool so I guess that wins by def...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

IIRC The timelines are:

De Niro telling the story in the Old folks home

De Niro and Pesci driving to the wedding

Everything leading up to that car ride (completely linear)

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

I've watched the first half of The Irishman on Netflix, and I've got to admit, I'm not loving it. I'm a big fan of the genre, love the cast, but honestly...? I'm actually struggling to follow it. It seems to be one random scene after another. I understand DeNiro in the chair at the old people's hom...

Moon is excellent; any similar or sci fi movie recommendations from the 2010s gratefully received.
Definitely try Coherence if you haven't seen it.

Re: Forum Changelog and Forum Suggestions

Since I joined I've really enjoyed reading all of ThirdMan's posts on film and it encouraged me to crack on with films I've been putting off for years. Sending love his way, it sounds like he's doing the right thing for him and I wish him all the best.

Re: Well Twitter has been interesting today hasn't it.

Honestly, this culture war-ification of politics makes me despair sometimes. How anyone could listen to C&R and the main takeaway be the 'politics' of the hosts just boggles the mind. My feelings exactly. For a lot of these people just saying the words sexism or racism makes you a left-wing extremi...

Re: Companion media

I remember after the last time I watched Unforgiven My favourite film of all time. Have you seen the 2013 Japanese remake? Sticks very close to the Eastwood version and given that some of the most famous Westerns are remakes of Japanese films I thought this was an interesting reversal. gj3gwo01Pf4 ...

Can't help with your question, Jay, but yeah I do this too. I spent most of my Red Dead Redemption 2 playthrough watching Sergio Leone films and listening to Mexican rock.

Re: Companion media

It sounds like you want something a bit closer to the game and I'm sure you've seen it but for near-future dystopia I'd go for Children of Men. For something a bit more obscure I've been meaning to watch No Blade of Grass (1970). I don't really know if it's worth a watch to be honest but I enjoyed t...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Spider-Man continues to delight and frustrate in equal measure. There are various points where you don't play as spider-man and they are so dull and frustrating it takes away from what is a great super hero game. Combat is fun and the story hasn't been overly predictable I hope they twist Doc Ock o...

You were never really here woah! This was really good. It's totally captivating, keeps you guessing right until the end. Amazing direction and there isn't an ounce of fat on it. I went in blind and think that might have helped, so do that if you can. Yeah I loved it, first film I've seen from Lynn ...

70's horror films are a bit of an easy target!
I saw Alien! It released less than a year after Halloween.
haha good point, I guess I was really just thinking of early slasher films rather than horror in general.

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

@Caligulas Horse maybe I was lucky but the whole room was strangely silent as if everyone was watching it for the first time. You have made me question whether I should risk it again though... I think you shouldn't worry about it too much, I was probably just unlucky with that crowd and it probably...

it was like most of the audience were just there to take the piss out of it That can be a problem. I was at a screening of Blue Velvet a few years back and there were two young idiots louding laughing at the film in a very pointed way, then talking and jeering to themselves. I shuffled up a few sea...

I saw Alien in 4K for it's 40th anniversary at the beginning of the year. Absolutely loved it. I need to remember to keep an eye out for when cinemas are showing classic films. I want to do this more but I was a bit put off by my experience when I went to see the original Halloween last year, it wa...

They've probably turned it into a fucking 3rd person shooter by now, have they? :lol: They tried with one of the sequels but it wasn't well received by long-time fans at all. The 2016 reboot and its sequel on the other hand thankfully take a complete 'back to the roots' approach and are as slow, me...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Planescape Torment is not a game to play if you don’t like reading. (I mean, that’s true of pretty much every game on that engine, but it’s especially true for this) Some of the best writing the medium has ever had of course, but so so much of it... For sure and I like the way they use the text to ...
