Re: The Last Three Movies You've Watched

In hindsight I'm probably being quite generous on the ratings for The Lone Ranger and The Wolverine. The only reason I want to talk about them again is to warn people of how poor they were.

Re: The Last Three Movies You've Watched

The Wolverine - :2stars: - Once again a superhero movie leaves me more frustrated and angry than anything else. The massive decision he faces is resolved quicker than he recovers from injury. Conversely the next big struggle he faces is dragged out through the rest of the film yet never really goes...

Re: The Last Three Movies You've Watched

The Lone Ranger - :2stars: - I barely remember watching the odd episode as a kid and not thinking much of it, but I'm sure that any appeal that was there was based on the action. This film goes out of its way to provide as little action as possible until the last 15 minutes of a 2.5 hour film. As m...

Re: The 85th Academy Awards (2013 Oscars for 2012 films)

Is it really the Oscars tomorrow? I've been meaning to write this post for ages but kept putting off (seeing if I could motivate myself to watch Beasts of the Southern Wild on DVD. I couldn't), so I'm going to have to rush through it now: Best actor - Haven't seen: NA Daniel Day-Lewis played Daniel ...

Re: The 85th Academy Awards (2013 Oscars for 2012 films)

Most glaring snub to me is Moonrise Kingdom . Audiences loved it. Critics loved it. I loved it. Guess the timing was poor. On the timing front, I noted that nearly all of the nominees are new releases (or not even released yet, at least over here). I know that most of them usually come out during a...

Re: General video game discussion

Still not taken the wrapper off Hitman: Absolution. Something jogged my memory that I never actually finished Portal so went back and started over. I know I'm five years late to the party but what a game. Loved the repeated "they can't want me to do that? Oh, yeah, yeah they do." moments. Although m...

Re: General video game discussion

I've just finished Memory 2 on AC3 and so far I'm very underwhelmed; finding lots of bugs and generally feeling unsatisfied with the missions. Does it get better? I took a hiatus over the holiday, and was feeling the same. Just started into Sequence 4 on Monday night and it appears to finally be ge...

Re: Skyfall (spoilers within)

I agree. Action scenes good. Plot suspicious by its absence/stupidity. And how can you have a parliamentary select committee without Keith Vaz? It just completely took me out of the moment.

Re: Random ranting about anything that pissed you off

I know that screen too well. It seems Cracked has a category all of its own as I've never found anything else "tasteless". I can only assume they mocked the makers of Websense at some point.

Re: Would You Rather 2012- Maxim 100 Edition- NSFW!

If it was pick 4 of the 8, I think Bar, Alison, Alina and Kate move on. That'd be an interesting variation, if an administrative nightmare. Rather than head-to-head match ups have a pool of eight girls and you had to rank them, or pick your top 4, or rank your top 4, or something. Should eliminate ...

Re: General video game discussion

Yep, sounds about right. There a couple of genuine choices in the game but they don't actually influence anything (like Mass Effect). There are some other things that are framed as choices but that only allow you to do one thing. There's some debate about whether that's due to the limitations of th...

Bar - And it's not even close.
The battle of the overrated. I'll go with Kristen.
Could (happily) go either way but based on today's mood I'll go with Alina.
Stacey - See comments for Bar above.

Re: General video game discussion

Just finished Spec Ops: The Line. It almost lives up to the (quiet) hype. If you're a video game fan of any kind you've simply got to play through it (it won't take long, I finished it in a little over a week and I'm rubbish at FPSs; this brings up a separate issue but I digress). You're better off ...

Over the last few weeks of hating work I decided to watch all 113 episodes of Extra Credits . Inspired by them (and the comments you guys have made here previously) picked up Mass Effect (1) and Spec Ops: The Line.

Elisha - Both pretty phenomenal though.
Kate - Blonder and boobier wins the day.
Stacey - Didn't think I wote vote against Mila but the twinkle in Stacey's eye just edges it.
Minka - Suppose I should go for a brunette at some point.
