  1. Game of Thrones

    Either it'll get dragged out fighting masses of zombies, which will be boring as fuck, or hopefully the plan to get to the Night King will actually happen ending with an quick epic battle. Basically the end of Episode 1, or The Mummy Returns. If you want story, intrigue, twists etc, get some Robert Jordan. A Song of Ice and Fire is the poor man's Wheel of Time.
  2. Game of Thrones

    No way, as soon as they start fighting you can kiss goodbye to all the meaningful character interactions all over Westeros and say hello to a LOTR Return of the King-style battle taking up the next few episodes. Yes, it's almost as if it's the final battle for the survival of all.
  3. Game of Thrones

    The White Walkers best start getting their shit in gear. Apart from one small skirmish and a nazi-javellin session in the last season, all they do is stand about. Get off your fucking horses and do some work.
  4. What Have You Bought?

    For our wedding, as is the thing these days of giving tables crazy names for people to sit at, as our tables will be named after some of the works of one of the worlds greatest actors, I needed smaller versions of the movie posters, so got that FreePrints app. Hope to see how they turn out when they arrive.
  5. The Disney Thread

    Scar isn't sinister at all. They've sacrificed obvious villianhood for realism, but they haven't compensated for that. Scar just looks like another lion with a less imposing voice than James Earl Jones, a hard feat yes, but Jeremy Irons had that gravitas, Chiwetel Ejiofor does not.
  6. What Have You Bought?

    Assassin's Creed wallet has finally worn itself out. Tried to find another geek-esque wallet but not many tri-folds out there. So had to opt for another Creed one.
  7. Exercise & Fitness: 2019 Edition!

    Anyone got any recommendations for a weight bench? Got them feels for some nice dumbbell lifting sessions after work.
  8. good stuff thread.

    I generally go to my barbers about 4 times a year, generally at the end of each season to shed the previous' coat. Currently there isn't one there I dislike but I haven't tried them all. General demand : 3 on back and sides and about half off the top.
  9. What Have You Bought?

    Game got a bit of a sale on at the moment. Had a tenner voucher from Christmas to spend Cost less than the preowned copies they had. Would've bought more but didn't want the backlog to increase. Also a new strap for my saxophone.
  10. Marvel's Phase Three

    Can't wait to see the Follen get saved
  11. Marvel's Phase Three

    I too was also underwhelmed by Captain Marvel. I don't think the "badass woman" vibe was really anywhere, except when they mention how females couldn't be pilots back in the day. Black Panther flogged that horse to death in its glorified gang war film. I just felt... meh... all the way through. As soon as they said "tesseract" I borderline switched off. It's been in about... 3-4 other Marvel films before, and these were set after this. I don't need to know its exact location throughout the timeline. They could've fisted one of the other Infinity Stones we didn't hear much about, which Thanos got his mitts on later.
  12. Netflix

    I get that quite a bit.
  13. Job woes/wins

    Just about a month into the new position. I am now no longer a legal secretary. I am a medical secretary! Sadly the training has come to a bit of a halt as our senior has been off sick, she came back yesterday and we were told not to bother her and the team will have to pick up her work (as they did last week when she was off) as she is doing some other project. Sadly she wasn't well enough to stay the rest of the day and wasn't in today. It's a little grating as it's hampered the training for myself and another new starter on the team, so we're doing typing pretty much all day which isn't that bad, it's just that I would love to learn more and do more. Hopefully the team leader will be well again soon and can finish the other project so we can all catch up with the work
  14. Don't forget the Red Eyes Black Dragon!
  15. I'm guessing it'll be a 99% carbon copy, with the DX colour dungeon thrown in.
  16. The Disney Thread

    It might be a too-mah.
  17. The Disney Thread

    If only the name reflected the nature of the media format! If only it actually did any teasing. This makes me less interested if anything. Lots of running and lots of standing at vistas. Best book two viewings in case I miss it all the first time.
  18. The environment looks good. But it's the eyes which are really putting me off. The Pokémon remakes (and all other remakes of that time) were able to give characters whites in their eyes so it's not an unheard of thing. There's something a bit off with the perspective in my mind. The characters are either really small or the environment is enhanced somehow. Link looks like he's one mushroom off becoming the size he should be. Link Between Worlds already has a delightful character model.
  19. Job woes/wins

    It's possible the job was made up, it is a ploy agencies use to get your name on the system. I always ask for feedback, just say something like "I'm always looking for ways to improve my application performance etc etc"
  20. The Disney Thread

    A nice way to show a lot and yet nothing at the same time... bloody "teasers"
  21. The Disney Thread

    I don't think Will Smith looks that bad as the Genie. I'm not sure that's his actual body though. The guy can put on muscle but his frame is more athletic. That Jafar I agree was terrible though, they should've gotten Oded Fehr who did an awesome job in Once Upon A Time
  22. Job woes/wins

    One recruiter who rang me yesterday to update me that he was "still looking" (because when I went to register with them I mentioned how other agencies never get in touch) and asked if I had had any other things come up, to which I had a couple but didn't tell him about as I know he'd put others forward for the role - tried to convince me one of the reasons I'm not hearing as much is because I'm registered with so many agencies, which I mentally dismissed as bollocks as I don't tell every agency to put me forward for the same role, and I think he is trying to maintain some sort of exclusivity. My advice would be to find your banking/office et al agencies in your different big city and see what they got going. Applying for something on TotalJobs etc normally goes through one of them and they'll be contacting you to register either way. If like myself you don't want to put all the eggs in the proverbial basket and apply en massé, make a note of the companies you've gone for in the last 6ish months.
  23. Black Mirror

    When we got to an "end" and it gave the opportunity to go back, we did and tried the other route to see what happened. Saw about four different reviews for Bandersnatch on the Games Master of the time.
  24. Black Mirror

    Watched Bandersnatch last night. Very underwhelming. I was alright but the gimmick wore itself out quickly and I know there are other endings, but I'm just not invested enough to go through it all over again to get five-ish minutes of other footage.
  25. Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition

    Fuck yeah. Graces all the way. Artes on the L stick isn't that bad, just wait until you try mapping them to the R stick. Which I tried once and never again, I'm not clawing my hand when I can just edit the L stick artes.
