  1. Rate the last film you saw

    I guess at least when you use your free tickets to see it again you can Be Prepared for disappointment in that section
  2. Rate the last film you saw

    In a bid to see everything that appears at my local cinema, I somehow found myself watching Horrible Histories: The Movie yesterday. It somehow was not as bad as I was expecting, actually pretty decent in places, pandering in others but mostly fine. The musical numbers were god awful though, and the dances even worse - out of sync and lame, Historical High School Musical it aint. But still, if you're in the target demographic (which I'm guessing is like 11 and under) then you'll find it pretty fun. 2.5/5 On a better note, I randomly picked up Kikujiro on bluray, a Japanese film about a boy who lives with his grandmother and goes on an adventure to find his mother who lives in a far off city. With the help of an older gangster wannabe they travel on an eventful journey meeting lots of colourful (and some very disturbing) characters. It's one of the most heart warming films I've seen in a long time and I haven't felt such a sense of adventure since Slumdog Millionaire. 4.5/5
  3. General Movie Thread

    Someone uploaded a 35mm 4K scan of the original teaser for Sam Raimi's Spider-Man yesterday, which was originally buried because of the Twin Towers (and possibly because of the ridiculous helicopter logic lol)
  4. General Movie Thread

    That Godzilla collection looks brilliant! And I know cats is getting a fair bit of hate but I really can't wait to see it lol. I was gonna pop and see Current War after work but was too tired so will check it out on Monday, weirdly enough it says it was released late 2017 in the US but only released here today so I'm not sure what's going on there.
  5. Rate the last film you saw

    Lion King - 5/6 out of 10 (can't decide lol), it looks incredible and the ambient songs by Hans Zimmer are great, Timon and Pumba are also SPOT ON, just like the genie in the Aladdin remake they have a good mix of the classic characters while letting their respective actors put a bit of their own spin on it. The meh parts: the lyrical songs are mostly ok but seem a bit more generic than the cartoon. The bad parts: The amazing visuals are also its downfall, it's almost impossible to put much emotion in a realistic Lion face so most of the time characters are just staring blankly at each other while they speak which makes the VO seem out of place. Speaking of voice overs, they're all pretty weak (apart from Timon and Pumba as I said) - not only do they feel a bit flat but they're don't feel mixed in properly? There's something really off with the audio mixing. Oh and they completely butchered Scar's song. Despite all of that, it was still pretty decent. It's no Aladdin though, which I fucking love, for more reasons than just Mena Massouds beautiful face.
  6. bad stuff thread.

    Trying to sleep last night was a bloody nightmare! This morning was my first day back at work after a week off so I was up late anyway as that was on my mind but then my GOD - THE HEAT! I had the great idea to leave my window and blinds open as it was so hot but ofc that meant I was nearly scared to death when the thunder and lighting swept in at two am. all in all probably had like four hours sleep so I'd better catch up on it tonight lol. Also, I didn't learn my lesson the first million times and have found myself knee deep in an unrequited love situation but that's for another post, maybe a book, or a memoir.
  7. Nintendo (re)Direct(ed) (13/09 11pm UK)

    I expect: More Smash info, even if it is as mundane as the E3 showing with very minor moveset tweaks spoken about. Lots of Super Mario Party footage. Lots of Luigi’s Mansion footage. New Super Mario Bros U for Switch. ”Stay tuned to our website and social media channels for more information on Nintendo Switch online which launches later this month” because they seemingly never want to talk about it lol
  8. What terrified you as a child?

    As a very young kid, before we moved houses so I was 7 or younger, I sneakily put the tv on in my room at night when I wasn’t meant to and watched the X Files, for some reason I thought it was real. One episode in particular where this persons bed covers were pulled up in the air by a poltergeist scared the shit out of me for years, it took many years to be able to sleep without clasping the covers lol. The thought of eternity also made me feel sick. The fact that things go on forever, there’s no end at all. Again because I was a kid and believed in the after life and such. Eternity doesn’t concern me as much now
  9. Fortnite

    I loved this for months but I think I’m getting a bit burnt out on it now (I say after purchasing the battle pass lol) while its nice to have the new areas I’m starting to wonder if we’ll ever get more than one map. They certainly have the assets for it from Save the World but I don’t know if that’s the direction they’d want to take things. I guess for now as long as Tilted Towers goes untouched I’ll always find time to play it at least a few times a week.
  10. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    I hate the graphics, it looks so basic and lifeless. It really does reek of laziness to me. I won’t be buying it because I don’t think we should keep supporting these low effort releases. We finally have a home console Pokemon game and yet it looks like something that, HD aside, could easily be achieved on the GameCube.
  11. The Disney Thread

    I just read the description for the Pixar Shorts on Amazon - it sounds amazing! Adding to my wish list now! Will nab it on pay day
  12. The Disney Thread

    I got Toy Story on Bluray, I loved seeing the old CG in HD, checking out some of the lame textures in backdrops, the hideous human hair. Are there any other examples of early CG on Bluray? I'm guessing they came a long way by Toy Story 2 but I'm tempted to pick up a Bugs Life
  13. bad stuff thread.

    Just think of all the joyous Fortnite kills we shared because of your dodgy belly! Every stomach has a silver lining
  14. Retro Studios

    I also think they are over-rated and certainly have a problem with the pacing of their output. I hear many of the Prime staff are gone now which could be another factor to the discontinuation of the Prime series from them. I was also massively disappointed by DKC Returns but do think Tropical Freeze was fantastic. I do wonder what’s happening internally though. 4 years after Tropical Freeze and no information at all - a bit more than 4 years really, as the game was actually finished near the end of 2013 and artificially delayed to 2014. There were rumblings that’s whatever they were working on after TF got canned and I can believe that, it would explain the radio silence.
  15. Nintendo Direct: E3 2018

    That was super disappointing for me, I’ve been burnt out with Switch for months now due to lack of anything original besides WiiU ports and I was really looking forward to Smash but... I dunno, it looks /fine/ but it didn’t blow me away in any sense. I was hoping for all new stages, exciting new characters, awesome character cut scenes but instead it’s just like a modded Smash 4 with veteran character DLC. I’m also slowly giving up hope on Retro. Not a glimpse, teaser, concept art, not ANYTHING for 4 years. They’re either in development hell with a game or something is going wrong at the studio.
