It's not a bad movie, but it always felt like too calculated an Oscar vehicle for tom cruise.
Plus it's a weaker version of Dances with Wolves.
Twilight Samurai, on the other hand, is excellent.

The US supreme court seems highly broken and politicised to me (looking on from the outside).
The house of lords has issues too, although like Xercies I have found myself appreciating it more as I...
I guess it partly comes from the historical situation where the only place to get news about upcoming games (games magazines) was also the only place to get reviews of games.
That has always...
Recently, I just add all my non-steam games to steam... because if I don't I forget about them.
I add entries for things like Uplay games and GOG games, and I point the entry at either Uplay or...

I watched Ren & Stimpy as a university student and thought it was great, but I wouldn't want small kids watching it.
It seems like a lot of animators watched Ren & Stimpy when they were younger...
I don't think Pixar are firing blanks exactly, but they're kinda stuck in a rut. All of their movies basically follow the same emotional arc.
It's a common emotional arc, but the fact that all...
Rayman Origins is the latest free game on the Ubiclub giveaway.
They keep giving away all the games I already have on Uplay :-(
Deus Ex 1 GotY seems to be about 25p on...

Snap. I've just managed to get back to Spartacus after a 2+ year break. I managed to watch the previous Orphan Black season just as the latest one came out, so I'm only one season behind. I did...
I've been enjoying these olympics a lot. I think I've gotten into them more than the London olympics, but that's largely down to the time differences, which have meant I've managed to catch a lot...
I watched Creed.
It's a good movie, despite not really doing anything original with the Rocky formula. It's close to a complete remake of Rocky 1 (but then most Rocky movies have been).
Wasn't the director of The Girl Who Jumped Through Time supposed to be one of their next generation? But then he left because he didn't feel appreciated or didn't get along with the bosses.
After reading John's review I'm hopeful that by the time my PC is powerful enough to run it it'll have been patched enough to fix the most annoying issues.
WADs were the file types used by Doom (and similar engine games) to store their level (and enemies, weapons maybe) data.
Hence doom Mods and Total Conversions were usually distributed as ****.WAD...
Ex_Machina was pretty great.
Good performances, great tense atmosphere, very cool understated SFX. I can't believe the guy in this is the same guy in The Force Awakens.
It suffers slightly from...
What's wrong with Thomas?
NB: I have been watching way too much Thomas over the past year or two and it might have destroyed my impartiality.
PS/ Can't be satanic, it was made by a Reverend ;-)...

That's good. Last time I tried to come back to the UK the sub prime crisis got in the way. This time brexit looks like it might get in the way. (Since I'm looking for a tech job.. though it doesn't...

I mean, it was entirely pointless and they should have just ignored it because it's just makeup differences, but if they wer egoing to invent a reason then that one at least kinda makes sense....

Well, it probably deserves it's own thread, but I can't be bothered to start one and it'd probably just kick off anyway.
I'd probably boycott Nexon games in protest, if they made anything that I'd...

That's not quite as dumb as I was imagining, at least. I was expecting it to go the other way where some form of experiement gone wrong caused them to all get ridges.

Darklands had an interesting take on ageing, as i recall.
Older characters gained skills but started to lose physical stats.

I had no interest in it, but now that I can't get it I want it. Silly brain!
I did rather enjoy the 2D metroid on the DS, whatever that was called. But the Metroid Prime games were awesome.
Watched The Hateful Eight and it's really rather pointless and dull.
I'm mostly a big Tarantino fan, but recently his movies have been leaving me somewhat cold. Haven't loved anything...

Now I really want to know what convoluted reason Enterprise came up with for the change in klingon's look. (Although I agree that it was totally unnecessary to do so).
I always thought the...

I'm going to totally contradict myself here :-)
I think the instability does actually have a big impact. It can sometimes be a change for good, but even if it's a good change, the level of...
