RE: [VIDEO] Billie Eilish picked to perform next Bond Theme.

Robee J Shepherd says...
"You don't think he can sing??? Her voice not being to your taste I could get, but if you think she can't sing I'm not sure what you are hearing!"

Well I guess it's all subjective. I'd rather stick a screwdriver through my eardrums than listen to her weak, asthmatic voice. It doesn't help that the melody itself is pretty basic. I doubt Hans Zimmer will have much difficulty integrating this into his score amidst the BWAAAMMMMs.

Hoping for something a bit more exciting when they reboot the franchise again in a few years.

[VIDEO] RE:Billie Eilish picked to perform next Bond Theme.

The start is terrible but it gets better. Ish.

I feel like this might have been a good song if it was performed by somebody who could actually sing.

RE: [VIDEO] Parasite Best Picture 2020

They already announced the US version - a limited HBO series, potentially starring Mark Ruffalo.

Bong Joon Ho is onboard with the idea:

In interviews during the final phase of the Oscar campaign Bong explained that the series, likely six hours in length, will not be a straight remake of the film but will include a lot of additional material and stories he had developed for Parasite that could not fit into a two-hour movie.

RE: [VIDEO] Parasite Best Picture 2020

I wouldn't really say it came out of nowhere. It won the Palme d'Or at Cannes, plus about a million other awards as well since then.

RE: The Trump Presidency

Smithers, rip this paper for me...

RE: [VIDEO] Windows 7 RIP

Here's a secret Julia doesn't want you to know. You don't need to worry about product keys. Just install Windows 10 from scratch (clean install) and then use... let's say "alternative methods" to activate.

I can PM you the details if you want.

RE: [VIDEO] Captain Picard returns

Well, the first episode is every bit as terrible as Discovery. I don't think I'll bother with the rest.

It's like the writers have never seen Star Trek before :\

RE: [VIDEO] Windows 7 RIP

Guys, when do we tell him that were joking and that we're all still rocking good ol' Windows 7?

But seriously, clean install all the way. If I was you, I'd grab a cheap 250GB SSD for like £30, install Windows on that and then recover your data from the existing hard drive afterwards.

"when i click on this all i get is Save or Cancel, doesnt give me the Run option?"

If you save the file, you will then be able to run it.

RE: Windows 7 RIP

I believe you have to use your old Windows 7 product key when installing Windows 10, then activation should work fine with a clean install.

Idk though, since I never had a legit Windows 7 key, either. I activated using other more nefarious means.

RE: Windows 7 RIP

You might be better off backing up what you need and doing a clean installation.

In-place upgrades can cause cause all kinds of problems.

If your copy of Windows 7 is legit, Win10 should still activate for free as Microsoft has your hardware ID on record.

RE: Lord of the Rings coming to Amazon

Nazanin Boniadi is great! I was gutted when they killed her off in Homeland. I'm guessing she will be an Easterling or something.

Robert Aramayo seemed a little wooden in GOT, but that could have just been because he was doing an impression of Sean Bean.

I remain cautiously optimistic.

RE: [VIDEO] Billie Eilish picked to perform next Bond Theme.

The Chrissie Hynde version of Live And Let Die from that same album was, IMO, better than the original.

RE: Billie Eilish picked to perform next Bond Theme.

I miss the days when the composer was involved in the songwriting process, allowing the theme to be used throughout the film. This hasn't happened since Casino Royale.

Having sampled a few of her songs, I can't say I'm very hopeful. Some of the most insipid bilge I've ever heard, but I guess it can't be worse than Sam Smith's hilariously awful offering.

"Now it's £120"

RE: Windows 7 RIP

I built a new rig at Christmas and finally moved over to Win10. I was an ardent Win7 user holding out until the last second, but it's not that bad, tbh. Once you spend an hour or so getting rid of the crap and making it look the way you want (which I also had to do with Windows 7), it's a perfectly fine OS.

[VIDEO] RE:Fargo (TV Series)

Ok I'm back onboard.

RE: The Trump Presidency

Si Wooldridge says...
"Is anyone actually 100% certain this thing exists?"

Nope. A video was "leaked" last year but it was proven to be fake. Even Christopher Steele (the source of the rumour) said it's "50/50" whether it exists or not. The rumour is based entirely on the word of a handful of people in the Russian government (none of whom had actually seen it, either).

Even if it was true, no crime was committed so it would be just another nothingburger, much like their impeachment efforts. The democrats' entire platform is based on smearing Trump so they don't have to present a viable option for people to vote for.

RE: [VIDEO] Election 2019

Always nice to hear the opinion of a war criminal

RE: [VIDEO] Star Wars spin-off series The Mandalorian

I guess Qui Gon just didn't get round to teaching that one to Obi Wan.

RE: [VIDEO] The Witcher (Netflix)

So this is out now. I've actually warmed to the casting quite a bit (especially after Cavill proved his PC gamer credentials in a recent interview) but the dialogue and ropey effects aren't doing this many favours.

I will persevere in the hope that it gets better.

[VIDEO] RE:Tenet (2020)

I guess I should have waited an hour. Here is the trailer in non crap-o-vision:

RE: [VIDEO] The Official Title For Star Wars: Episode IX Revealed

Sorry but...

Why didn't he just stop shooting the lightning?

I mean, I know it's hard to stop mid-stream but really dude...

I guess it was ok. Poorly written, horribly rushed in a places and almost no originality or imagination whatsoever, but still better than The Last Jedi.

This whole trilogy was a waste of time.

Tenet (2020)

Christopher Nolan's films are always a must-see and even though I wasn't particularly enamoured by Dunkirk, his next film is still the one I'm most looking forward to. Billed as an ambitious international espionage thriller, little is known of the plot except that it may or may not involve manipulation of time. This seemed to be confirmed by the teaser trailer below.

A 6-minute prologue was attached to IMAX prints of Star Wars and a leaked version of the teaser trailer has shown up online:

I have no idea wtf I just watched but I'm pumped nonetheless. At the very least, it won't be another godawful superhero movie.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

This news is a month old, which is why you can't find it in the headlines today.

RE: [VIDEO] Star Wars spin-off series The Mandalorian

1-3 were decently fun
4 was a dud apart from the T-Rex AT-ST
5 was pointless and cringeworthy in places (the appearance of the Tuskan Raiders, for example)

So far every episode has been a side quest. Still waiting for the story to show up.

At least Bill Burr is in episode 6, so it can't be bad.

RE: [VIDEO] Ghostbusters 2020

Pete-MK says...
"I'll hold out hope that the scenes in the trailer are limited to the first half hour of a two-hour film"

I would say more like the first 30 mins (EDIT: oops, I thought you wrote hour, not half hour. I am dumb). Perfect trailer tbh, sets up the premise and general tone of the movie without giving much away.

Between the cast, Ivan's involvement and the general positive vibes of the trailer, I'm pretty excited.

Which is rare for movies these days.

RE: [VIDEO] Election 2019

Good Lord, the people in that C4 video sound like utter divs.

Corbyn? Don't trust him *wince* (no reasons given)
Boris? He's a buffoon, but a lovable buffoon and you'll get an honest answer out of him (one moron actually said this)

Did they conduct this focus group in a lobotomy clinic?
