  1. General TV Thread

    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.
  2. General Movie Thread

    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. 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. 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.
  3. EEVIL's New Year Resolution Thread!

    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!
  4. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    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
  5. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    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?
  6. Returnal (30th April 2021)

    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!
  7. General Movie Thread

    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...
  8. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    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!
  9. Show off your Christmas Swag!

    That picture is definitely one to frame! Absolutely incredible talent and captured his likeness fantastically!
  10. Show off your Christmas Swag!

    I can't show anything because my phone broke and it's gone crap but I've got a PS5! I can't actually believe I have one now! I'm so happy! It's a Christmas fookin' miracle!
  11. General Movie Thread

    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!
  12. good stuff thread.

    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!
  13. General Movie Thread

    Is it out in the UK?!
  14. General Movie Thread

    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)!
  15. General Movie Thread

    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).
  16. good stuff thread.

    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!
  17. General Movie Thread

    When I tell you I'm so fucking excited that I feel like bursting in tears...I'm not exaggerating!

  19. General Movie Thread

    I said exactly the same thing to everyone. The use of White Rabbit was awesome though! I'm going to see Malignant today in the cinemas. It's the first time this year I'd be going. I've bailed out of the cinemas for months and I've been dying to go but I'm definitely going today!
  20. I am a huge reader. I absolutely love my Kindle Paperwhite and I read more or less every night without fail. I've just currently finished reading 13 Reasons Why and I'm really conflicted with whether I liked it or not, mainly because of how I felt about Hannah Baker. Currently, I'm reading 7 Days in Hell by Iseult Murphy and The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley. Any readers in the house? What are you reading? Oh and if you have Goodreads, add me!
  21. bad stuff thread.

    I love that 😂 😂 😂 but whatever happened to toys in cereals or spoons or something. Cereals are so boring now! I'm having store-brand cereal for a little bit. It took me about an hour to talk myself into it, telling myself that would never happen again 😂
  22. bad stuff thread.

    I had the fright of my life this morning to the point my anxiety levels just reached a stupid height. This morning, opened a new box of Cheerios, my absolute favourite thing, to find an ACTUAL LIVE SPIDER in the box! It was proper thick as well! For the record, I'm bloody scared of spiders! I don't give a fuck but it was horrible!
  23. General Movie Thread

    You didn't enjoy Ghostbusters II? I've seen this about 10 times already! I have been waiting over 25 years for this, when 6 year old me practically watched the two films all of the time, and my body is entirely ready for this one right now. Now THIS feels like a Ghostbusters movie! I honestly cried a little bit because Ghostbusters means a lot to me, which was why I got so annoyed with 2016. It just didn't feel like a Ghostbusters film but more of a slapstick mess with no rhyme or reason behind anything. I watched Ghostbusters 1984 in the cinemas before everything went to shit for it's 35th anniversary as it was something I always wanted to experience and it was glorious. I'd have loved a double-feature but I was glad to see my favourite film on the big screen and I'm just as excited to see this.
  24. I know you aren't attacking or hating and I respect that it's a genuine question so there's no worries on my part. If I'm honest, I just think it's way too new to know what the future implications may be. I have considered everything I've read and whilst I understand that it might be safe, if I'm not all in 100%, by good faith I can't do it because it will drive me crazy. As I have previously said, it took me ages to get the flu jab. It naturally just does. I can't help my thought processes, as much as I wish I could. If I had my own good time to process things and actually ease into it, I'd be fine. Yes, I know it's been quite a while but things take a while to get my head around. I've never said never and as I have said a thousand times, I'm not pro or anti. I'm simply against giving a time limit to get something that I, myself, am unsure of as I would have to live with the decision. As of right now, I am fine and happy. I keep distances, I clean and sanitise as I have always done. This is like second nature to me now and even with having the jabs, this wouldn't change for me or make me feel safer in any way. My own good time would probably be the only way for me to be comfortable. Giving me until September makes me extremely uncomfortable.

    This is so cute! That quality is stunning!
