[VIDEO] RE:Homeland



She recovered quickly...



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?



RE: [VIDEO] Rambo: Last Blood

So I just watched this for free and I still want my money back.

Literally the same plot as every other revenge thriller. Bad thing happens (daughter sold into sex slavery, murdered wife/husband/family, dead dog etc) so the old white dude kills everyone. How many times are they going to make this movie?

This is so far removed from First Blood that to have imagery from the original in the end credits just feels like an insult.

Protip: play 'Setting The Trap' from Home Alone during the planning sequence. This made it mildly bearable.



RE: Black Friday deals

I find that the magic is somewhat taken out of it by stores advertising their big deals a week or two in advance, sometimes as early as October.

Something I was going to buy today at a pretty decent price (some new RAM) was already sold out last night because it was on offer price all week long.



RE: And the award for environmentally destructive designed obsolescence goes to...

Windows Vista?




Can confirm, as my family's/friends' tech support operator, whenever I hear "can you take a look at my laptop" I die a little on the inside.

Finally, a reason to invest in VR.

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

lol the second episode is only 30 mins :\



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

First episode is indeed 38 mins.

I wasn't expecting much after Disney desecrated the franchise, but it's kinda not bad.

Production value is off the scale.



RE: BT broadband

I have Plusnet, which is owned by BT.

The supplied Hub One router (which is based on a version of the BT Home Hub) is surprisingly decent.

I can't imagine how bad the Sky router must have been to keep dropping connections like that, unless you live in some enormous stately home.



RE: Game of Thrones Prequel

And just a few hours later...

'House of the Dragon' ordered for 10 episode first season

This is the aforementioned Targaryen dynasty prequel.

Kind of a shame really. The other project sounded far more interesting.

RE: Game of Thrones Prequel

Looks like this is no longer happening.

Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: HBO has more Game of Thrones in the pipeline, but the prequel written by Jane Goldman and starring Naomi Watts is no longer happening.

Showrunner Goldman has been emailing the cast and crew of the project to tell them that the pilot is dead, we hear. The development has not been confirmed by HBO.

https://deadline.com/2019/10/game-of-thrones-prequel-pilot-dead-hbo-jane-goldman-naomi-watts-1202771609/

No word yet on the fate of 'Fire & Blood', the other spin-off detailing the Targaryen dynasty.



RE: [VIDEO] BBC is making a Victorian-era War of the Worlds TV series

This started already in Canada and New Zealand, so the first episode is already out there on them series of tubes.

Kinda strange seeing so many Liverpool landmarks doubling for London.



RE: [VIDEO] El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

Well that was a whole lot of nothing...



RE: The Trump Presidency

Pete-MK says...
"Impeachment, leading to invoking of the 25th and removal from office for soliciting a foreign power to interfere with elections."

Which won't happen, so it's a complete waste of time. Even if by some miracle they were able to find the votes in the senate, it would simply leave Mike Pence as President. This is hardly an upgrade.

Didn't we go through all of this with Russiagate? The democrats need to stop with these idiotic conspiracy theories and try presenting a viable candidate for the election in 2020 instead.



[VIDEO] RE:Captain Picard returns



I think the initial hype has worn off. It's just a bunch of fan service cameos tied to a tired old plot.

Riker got fat and Data is buried under an inch of Polyfilla.

This looks even worse than Discovery.



[VIDEO] RE:The Irishman



Joe Pesci does not give a f*** :D



[VIDEO] RE:The Irishman



The reviews are hailing it as audacious and epic, but the de-aging tech is coming under fire. For example:



They should have just used younger actors that look like their older counterparts. I hope it isn't too distracting in the film.



[VIDEO] RE:Omg What’s Next ?!

You can just watch the clip and ignore RT's commentary if you want. The footage speaks for itself.

Between this, the endless gaffes and his racist ramblings at the last debate, I really don't know how creepy Joe is still in the running.

A fun watch:





RE: We haven`t played Mornington Crescent in a while...

This lapsed period has opened up some great opportunities for newly legal moves, such as Abbey Wood.



RE: The Trump Presidency

Quote:
There is strong support from House Democrats for impeachment, but the proceedings would be unlikely to pass the Republican-controlled Senate.



Not gonna hold my breath.



RE: [VIDEO] His Dark Materials (HBO | BBC)

Starts November 3rd on BBC1



RE: So... what are you playing just now?

I play Dead By Daylight most nights. 3.5k hours and counting. Stranger Things DLC will be released in a few weeks, can't wait.

Also recently completed Far Cry Primal and have FC5 lined up as soon as I finish Hitman 2.



[VIDEO] El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie



Idk, I seem to be in the minority of people who thought that the show went downhill after season 4.

I guess I'll watch this, but I'm still not sure what the point is.

"refers to Nazis as 'very fine people'"

Not really true. He said:

Quote:
Donald Trump says...
"you had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.....I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and white nationalists because they should be condemned totally."

He's said and done enough idiotic stuff that misquoting him really isn't necessary.
