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.



RE: The Trump Presidency

"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.

Well since bandi dropped the ball, here's something interdasting:

RE: [VIDEO] American Crime Story

Production is finally going forward on the Clinton/Lewinksky season, with Beanie Feldstein (Lady Bird, Booksmart) cast as Monica Lewinsky.

Impeachment: American Crime Story will go into production in February and will air in late 2020.

https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/american-crime-story-season-3-clinton-impeachment-beanie-feldstein-monica-lewinsky-1203294448/

The Katrina season is no longer in development.



RE: The Trump Presidency

"Trump has brought in record low black unemployment"

https://www.statista.com/statistics/194151/unemployment-rate-of-african-americans-in-the-us-since-1990/

Black unemployment has been in steady decline for the past 10 years. Chump is merely riding the coattails of an economy that Obama created.

Also, repeatedly referring to black and brown communities as "infested" (not just re: Baltimore, but many times in the past)... yeah, totally not a dog whistle to his gullible MAGAts.

[VIDEO] The Irishman

Scorsese, De Niro, Pacino, Pesci, Keitel.



Quote:
Frank Sheeran is a World War 2 veteran and a former hitman for the mob. His time spent during the war in Italy made him a talented killer. To make ends meet, Frank utilizes his skills to become a hitman for the mob. Now in his old age, Frank reflects back on the moments and hits that defined his mob career. Especially his role in the disappearance of his old friend Jimmy Hoffa, a former president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters that went missing in 1975, never to be seen again.



RE: [VIDEO] Zombieland: Double Tap

This trailer inspires little confidence.



RE: [VIDEO] Stranger Things (Netflix)

Didn't even realise there was an end credits scene. I hate when they do that.

Sigh *re-downloads episode*

Really hoping they give us more depth on the lore next season. This year it felt like they were coasting on the charisma of the cast + 80s nostalgia, with not much story in between.



RE: [VIDEO] Stranger Things (Netflix)

Just watched it, thought it was okay.

The good:

SPOILER:
Nepotism or not, Maya Hawke is fantastic in this and a great addition to the cast
Can't get enough of dad Steve
Literally every moment with Erica was gold
Effects were stepped up a notch this season and pacing was pretty good

The bad:

SPOILER:
Really don't need the first episode of every season to be about catching up with all the characters. I already saw the previous seasons, can get on with the story please?
Teenage relationship drama zzzzzzzz
Constant annoying bickering between meathead cop guy and Winona with forced romantic arc that doesn't work.
Most problems solved by Eleven holding out her hands and screaming.
I got pretty frustrated with the predictable plot by the end. Also, too many last second saves and the obligatory noble sacrifice (my most hated trope).


Season 4 plot prediction:

SPOILER:
Hop's not dead but trapped in the upside down, gotta spend another 8 episodes getting him back.




[VIDEO] RE:The Terror (AMC | 2018)



I'm not usually into ghost/supernatural horror, but this looks really interesting.



RE: [VIDEO] Westworld Season 3

Quote:
bandicoot says...
"Not sure yet, why scenes are back in time re WW2, unless time travel is involved, but thats just speculation on my part."

More likely it is just one of the parks, ie. War World or WW2 World.




RE: [VIDEO] Captain Picard returns

It was announced at Comic Con, Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis to make appearances.

It wouldn't surprise me if Frakes directs an episode or two, either.



RE: [VIDEO] Captain Picard returns

Data, Riker and Troi all returning to make appearances, plus Seven of Nine?

And was that a B-B-Borg cube?

My hype meter just went from Not Hyped to Pretty Goddamn Hyped.



[VIDEO] RE:Watchmen HBO series



Quote:
Watchmen is based on the graphic novel co-created and illustrated by Dave Gibbons and published by DC.

lol



RE: [VIDEO] Ad Astra

Looks really great. The music in the trailer reminded me heavily of The Leftovers (oh how I miss that show), and no surprise Max Richter is doing the score for this as well.



RE: 50th anniversay of moon landing

Kubrick did indeed fake the moon landings. However, he was such a stickler for detail that he insisted on shooting it on location.



[VIDEO] The Witcher (Netflix)

TV adaptation of the fantasy short stories and novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, which were previously adapted into the wildly successful game series.



The casting looks way off tbh. Cavill is no Geralt and Triss and Yenn don't look right at all :\

Some cheap and nasty effects in there too. Maybe it will be passable but the games still look like the better adaptation by far.



RE: [VIDEO] Ghostbusters 2020



There is so much goodwill for this movie based on this one picture alone.



RE: [VIDEO] Knives Out

Looks pretty bland tbh. If it wasn't for all the famous actors, I doubt this would register on anybody's radar.

Oh and it's Rian Johnson, so insta-pass for me.



[VIDEO] RE:E3 2019

Ubisoft show had more gameplay than most, but the games are...

Watch Dogs: Legion - brexit edition






Ghost Recon: Breakpoint - more of the same as Wildlands, Ghost Recon in name only






Rainbow Six: Quarantine - 3 player co-op R6




Roller Champions




Gods & Monsters





No Splinter Cell again. No way to turn this property into a live-service turd like their other games, I guess.




[VIDEO] RE:E3 2019

Quote:
Si Wooldridge says...
"What on earth is that Ghostwire one all about?"

I think it was described as a supernatural action adventure. This was a first look, so the details are scant. It will probably feature much more heavily at next year's show.


PC Gaming Show highlights:

Chivalry 2 - Epic Fail Store exclusive and why even bother when Mordhau exists now



Midnight Ghost Hunt



Evil Genius 2



Zombie Army 4: Dead War



Planet Zoo



Shenmue 3

Not much of interest to me, tbh.
