    Yes, very surprised at Germany being so low and not even getting a point from any jury.

    The Serbia song was well odd and can only imagine it got points for how ridiculous the choreography (if you can call it that) was rather than the quality of the song or performance.

    I didn't think our song (Ireland) was great and wasn't fussed didn't make the final, but I also didn't watch either or the semi finals so tonight was my first time seeing all the songs. So now I am wondering how Serbia got to the final ahead of ours.

     

    This wasn't the strongest year. Ukraine wasn't a winning song for me. Germany, Spain and UK were memorable as were Norway (it was odd but kind of catchy), Poland and Finland (The Rasmus!!). I can't remember the country but there was another song that was pretty cool. They were one of the last countries to have been judged by the votes. She had short hair, started on the floor and kicked into a sort of soft rock song.

    Ukraine win with a massive public vote.

    Hopefully Putin is no longer having his hissy fit and they are able to host next year.

    I mean, we all predicted this...right? 

    For me, the UK had the best song and I am so proud of Sam Ryder! The song is phenomenal and his voice is amazing and second place is the best the country has done in years! He should be proud.

    The biggest shock was Germany being last. They should've swapped places with Serbia (or the handwashing song). It weren't my cup of tea.

    I had considered putting Spain in my top 5 but I was thinking my opinion might have been clouded by the... Lets say wardrobe and I didn't think I listened to the song well enough :p

    I was practicing my proposal in Spanish 😂

    Rasmus were performing Finland's song! How did I not know this sooner.

    I said the same thing! I didn't know either! Pleasant surprise! I really loved the song as well. It was great but I just loved Space Man more. 

    I'm not being biased at all. I've followed Sam Ryder for a long time and love his voice. Genuinely, I loved that song so much. For me, it's the best of the night. I know it probably won't win but it should, at least, be top 5 or even top 10. If its last or bottom 5, that would be ridiculous! 

     

    Oh and Germany were wicked too. Really liked their song.

    Just found out that all of My Wife and Kids is on Netflix. For years I've tried finding a download/DVDs of that show. Finally I can ruin my childhood memory of it!

    You can get the DVDs. I have Season 1 but it's a different region. I'm sure you'll be able to get the others.

    Beasted it! :bowdown:  So for all the unwavering support we've given, when can we expect our tailored training plans to arrive in our inboxes? :grin:

    Hmm, yeah I'm not so sure about that...
    The Bleep Test: The Best 20 Metre and 15 Metre Beep Test ... 

    Thank you! Glad it's all done! It would take me years to do a plan for ALL of you so you can all fight for them Hunger Games-style! :D

    I love the Bleep test! I'm actually pretty decent at it...or was pretty decent at it. I haven't tried it in two years!

  6. I finished watching all of Dexter: New Blood in one sitting. I literally watched all ten episodes back-to-back because I was gripped. It more than made up for that horrible ending of Dexter.

     

    Spoiler

    People had their problems with the ending but I thought it was a perfect way to end his story. At the end of the day, he broke the code that he held throughout his whole life. He became the very monsters he killed to satisfy the Dark Passenger. Although Harrison was annoying, I thought it was fitting that he was the one to finish the story. The best thing they can now do with Dexter is to leave well alone. Everything is tied up with a nice bow rather than whatever the fuck that final season of Dexter was. I absolutely loved seeing Debra again!

    So I just seen Scream (aka Scream 5) on a site, I better not mention here. 

    What a GARBAGE repeat, and it's not even very entertaining or original either.

    Wes Craven, you deserve so much better. RIP, good sir.

    I thought he would have been pretty proud of it, to be fair. If anything, it reminded me more of Scream than the other sequels. They honoured the first one and what '96 did for slashers as well as recognising that it's a continuing story. I was pretty excited for this and I did go in with high expectations because it's a series I hold very close to my heart. It ignited my love for horror (which was ironically recognised in the new film). However I understand why some people didn't like it but I would recommend watching it in the cinemas and giving it another try.

    I haven't been to the cinema in literal years. Last movie I saw there was Joker, fun times. Looking forward to the second Sonic movie. The first one was really good. I've heard bad thing about Scream 4. This is what you get if you wait over 20 years to try and reboot a franchise. I hate what they did to the Elm Street movies as well if i'm honnest.

    There was good and bad with the new Scream but overall, it was pretty great. It's definitely the most brutal in the franchise and I thought the story, for the most part, was definitely the strongest of the sequels. I did have a problem with a couple of things but I adored the easter eggs and the references in this one.

    Spoiler

    I loved it because it wasn't afraid to be bold. The kills were brutal from a simple neck stab to being stabbed numerous times. In the previous Screams, they cut away from the multiple stabs quite a few times but with this one, it felt different and that wasn't a bad thing. It wasn't afraid to hold back. It showed that you don't need flying guts everywhere to make you feel uneased. I also loved the fact it answered an 11 year old question in the form of an easter egg: Kirby from Scream 4 (Hayden Panettiere) is alive! During a YouTube video (a cameo made by YouTuber's Dead Meat, who I love), you can see a video in the Recommendeds saying "Interview with Woodsboro Survivor: Kirby Reed" and it was dated 3 years ago. It was an unanswered question in Scream 4 because you never actually saw her die. It turned out that Wes Craven wanted Kirby to survive and become a final girl but Kevin Williamson wanted her dead. I also loved the little nods to horror in the film as well and the respect it had for the original was great too. I really enjoyed the cameo of Martha, Randy's sister from Scream 3, and the fact she has kids who were part of this film was a nice touch. I loved the story a lot more than I expected to and found myself really enjoying Sam's story. I was hoping the characters were going to be at least average and I ended up caring for them bar one, Amber, which brings me to my next bit.

    There was only two things that I didn't like: the reveal and the motive. Both sucked. The killers were sort of obvious if you've watched Scream before. If you've seen four of them, you should know who to look out for. Amber had the least amount of screen-time (or felt like it) so instantly I knew it was her and funnily enough, as soon as Richie came on the screen, I instantly said "It's him...straight fact". I loved how Dewey instantly knew as well. Speaking of, I hated the fact Dewey was killed by Amber. It made no sense considering she wasn't the same height as him and wasn't as obsessed with the Stab franchise as Richie so it would've made a lot more sense if it was him. The motive was poor too, the poorest of them all and that's saying something considering I hated Scream 3's reveal and motive, but I still enjoy the films all the same. Unfortunately it did leave me a little sour but not enough for me to not be satisfied of the entry and to want more. Even the legacy characters had the right amount of screen-time for me. I know people wanted them there longer but the point of the film was to create something new but familiar and I think they did it perfectly.Sam and Tara are both interesting characters and I was rooting for them entirely. Mindy and Chad were awesome additions to the series as well and very likeable. I'm actually surprised with how they had their own identities but strongly brought the movie-geek persona that Randy gave in the first two Screams, something that was sorely missing in Scream 3. I loved the memorial "for Wes" and paying tribute to Craven (like the picture in Randy's memorial of a cinema playing "A Nightmare on Elm Street") and the names (like Dylan Minnette being named Wes and Sam having the second name Carpenter, as a tribute to John Carpenter). I'm glad they've kept the tradition alive for that. I also loved the intro too, it's definitely the best intro since the original hands-down. It felt more like Scream and it delivered. The iconic phone call from Scream 1996 was a very nice touch and definitely beats the cinema intro from Scream 2 and the meta-intro from Scream 4. It just hit the right notes for me.

    For me, this shits all over Halloween Kills, which was dire and misleading and tried to achieve what Scream 2022 did. I can't wait to see this again to see what other easter eggs I missed.


  8. I'm late to the party but screw it, I'm putting this out there to the universe!

    I want to pass my Personal Training course, lose at least 2 or 3 stone and try to jog 5K. The last one I used to be able to do very easily but since I've had my foot injury, it's not been so great. However, it's feeling a helluva lot better so I'm going to try and do it in intervals and take it slow!

    Performance RT should be the “best” option if you want a nice balance of graphical performance and high frame rate. Dependent on your setup and how sensitive you are to frame rates you may find one of the other options better. Best thing to do is give them all a try and see which works best for you.

    Basically I want it as smooth as silk and looking amazing, haha. I think I might be on the correct setting. I noticed it said that it was 1080p and not 4K but honestly, it still looked better than it did on the PS4. The colours are a lot more vibrant and clear and the fluid movement was just amazing to play

    Welcome to the club! I buy all of my games through PSN and there is usually a stand-alone version for the PS5 when a conversion has been done “properly” - I say “properly” as I’m sure many of these are just a PS4 Pro version labeled differently. All of the games have had to be compatible with PS4 Pro for a long time now so you’ll at least get that version with anything you have that is specifically PS4 only. 

    PS5 specific stuff I think Miles Morales and Astro’s Playroom are essential. Once F1 2021 came out in the summer I haven't actually played much else so I need to do some catching up myself.

    I just bought the Ultimate Edition of Miles Morales so I got Spider-Man Remastered with it and I see a massive difference. I've played that game to death and loved it and it's great looking at the visuals. I don't know what settings to have it on. Right now, I have it on "Performance RT" (I think it's called that). Is that the best one?


  11. Instantly had to play this as soon as I got my PS5 and I do not regret my decision. This game is fucking insane in the best way possible! I love it! I love the fact nothing is the same. I died once by this big git and all I had was a pistol. I was thinking "okay, I'll get the bastard back now because I got this shit", right? Nope, the whole bastard game changed on me and I am here for every single second of this shit! I have buckled up! I have to try and find technology to destroy the xenotech shit on the gates but I've had so much fun trying to avenge people (avenged two so far) that I completely forgot about the mission!

    First trailer for Fantastic Beasts 3: The Secrets of Dumbledore!

     

    I'm so fucking excited for this! I missed the Wizarding World so much!

    I watched all of The Matrix movies including Resurrections and watching them back-to-back made me appreciate the trilogy a lot more. I used to hate Revolutions because it felt very separate but seeing all three of them together was quite well done, I thought. I still think it's the weakest one though. Resurrections was very enjoyable- I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected.

     

    Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is a whole different story. The trailer looked quite promising with actually following the games enough for fans to love it but alas, it was pretty dull with no tension and the characters (except for Chris and Claire) were badly cast. It's a shame because I thought it held potential and it's sad to see it wasted with crap cast choices, characters doing pointless shit and scenes being added with zero relevance to the film. At least the Project: Alice series was entertaining at some level... 


  13. Guys, I'm joining the club! haha. I'm a bit confused though. How do I know what PS4 games I can upgrade to PS5 and what just look better (if that makes sense)? Like I know God of War is supposed to be so much better on the PS4 but it's still a PS4 game, right? However, I've just got the PS5 versions of FFVII:R, RE: Village and Plague. Is there a list of games you can upgrade? I've visited a few sites and they also include PS4 games that look better but I just want a solid list of games I can upgrade to the PS5 version from the PS4 games I have already bought...

    Also, any recommendations for games on the PS5? So far, I just have Ratchet and Clank: Rifts Apart and it is amazing!

    Yeah we all try to encourage her as much as possible and I’m always the one who gets her art supplies for birthdays etc. I can’t wait to see what she does in the future.

    That picture is definitely one to frame! Absolutely incredible talent and captured his likeness fantastically!

    Not quite Marvel so will put it here: First trailer for Spider-man: Across the Spider-verse Part one (!!) released:

     

    I'm genuinely confused. How do you mean by "not quite Marvel"? I'd have thought it would've been because it's Spiderman? 

    Also, I'm excited for this film!

    Congrats! As well as being a sports coach myself, I have friends doing similar courses and they all say how much more involved it is then they realised, so nice one! 👏🏻

    Thank you! It's been quite tough, honestly. I did so much preparation for it and it went very smoothly. The comments I got back were great- I was told that I was very informative and knew my stuff but I could've been louder, but that was down to nerves. I'm just going to enjoy Christmas for now and hit the books hard in January ready for my Level 3. To be fair though, I've done the essays, assignments, quizzes and theory and I just need to do the practical. I'm great when I'm not being watched but because I know it's on the line and there's a difference between passing and actually having a career or failing and having it go on for longer, it sticks with me. 

    I know I got this though!

  17. Watched Ghostbusters Afterlife and it was phenomenal. I absolutely loved it. I already went in with high expectations and they exceeded them. I loved the story, the characters, the locations...everything! The last 20 minutes was worth the ticket price alone. I'm actually planning on watching it again but this is definitely the 2nd best Ghostbusters film (nothing can beat 1984)!

    Took a flexi day on Friday and went to the cinema without wife or toddler to enjoy Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

     

    I’m glad that they completely disregarded the 2016 film. I’m also very happy with their respectful acknowledgment of Harold Ramis. The final 15 minutes got me good.

    I'm seeing it tonight! It'll be my second time going to the cinemas this year because I've been a bit shaky but my friend is going with me, which is good. I have been dying to see this movie for years and I've heard absolutely nothing but good things from everyone (apart from RT critics but then they highly rated Ghostbusters 2016 so they know absolutely nothing, lmao).

  19. So my good news is that I passed my Gym Instructor test. I am now officially qualified to teach fitness classes, instruct people on how to do exercises and help out in a gym. I am absolutely chuffed! I'm halfway there and living on a prayer! haha!
