  1. Was reading through the thread and saw someone posted WRC 9 was on sale for 7.99, leaving me little choice but to buy it (and a nice surprise to find it reduced further to a frankly ridiculous £3.19 on visiting the store) So it's downloading now. Maybe should have asked before buying, but as someone who really enjoyed Dirt Rally and how difficult and unforgiving it could be (using a pad), is this comparable at all? I understand from reading the thread it seems to be a bit less brutal, but does it have similar structure, locations and cars etc. I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy
  2. If any of your potatoes are of the smaller varieties, boil them up (or par boil them would be best). Drain them and let them air dry in the pan for a bit. Once they're coolish, slice 'em up as thin or as thick as you like and then throw them in a roasting tin. Add a decent splash olive or sunflower oil, a massive dosage of balsamic vinegar, a bit of salt & black pepper (plus anything else you fancy, paprika maybe?). Shake them about in the tin to get them nicely coated. Crush a couple of garlic cloves and throw those in the tin too. Stick them in a pretty hot oven
  3. Solaris is more interesting that good in my opinion, it kind of misses the point of the original story I thought Although it's a good few years since I watched it and my take might be way off the mark
  4. Yes, those sequences are wonderful and made me hunt out Mr Malik's quite hard to get hold of Voyage of Time. I eventually managed to find a German Blu-ray online for a pretty stupid price. It's rather a stunning piece of work though but I've only managed to watch it once due to one of the real world sequences consisting of the bloody deaths of a herd of cows slap bang in the middle of it. (I had my hand over my eyes when it came on so I'm not sure of the context, whether it was the aftermath of a lorry crash perhaps or whether it was some ritual slaughter or something. It's a pity because it's
  5. Although I have to say (and I hope I'm not alone here) Primer absolutely mixed my head up. I'm too thick to get that one.
  6. Willing to take all recommendations @squirtle keep them coming man
  7. Oh man, I cannot resist a @Goose recommendation. Predestination goes on the list. Thanks
  8. Ok cool, still got my sub for that, thanks man
  9. Is Triangle still on Netflix? I think I had it in my watchlist but never got round to it. Timecrimes though. Spectacularly creepy in parts And also the best use of Blondies Picture This in any movie.
  10. Ended up going with Timecrimes. Thanks for the recommendations guys. It's just finished it and it has got my head spinning. Contact again tomorrow maybe
  11. I have all six Alien movies, and I don't even mind the shit ones for the world building they do and the way they look but Aliens, as in the second one? I could go for that but I'd feel the need to watch the original first though. It's a dilemma
  12. I ended up this afternoon watching yet another essay on 2001 A Space Odyssey on YouTube, followed by a few more on 2010 The Year We Make Contact. This led to me going down the garden path to my shed to get 2001 and 2010 out of the box I keep my old dvds in. But I also ended up going "oh yeah, that's good, and that, and that as well" So I've now got about 20 films I want to watch before bed now. Event Horizon would be my choice this evening I think, but it appears to have been lost somewhere. I should add that I've seen all of these at least once bef
  13. oh man, that is awesome @Made of Ghosts. Are you one of those massive Scrabble and anagram people who always do well on Countdown? It strikes me as one of the few shows that has actual intelligent people on, Countdown, University Challenge, Only Connect are the only ones I can think of where actively stupid people wouldn't do well. Slightly related to gaming/quiz stuff, this week my wifes sister (yes my sister in law as most would call it) who is an absolute terrible waster, gambler, alcoholic, self diagnosed as unfit to get a job and an inveterate borrower of money from us every w
  14. Yeah @PK, in that episode she just reminded me of the meek wife she played in Boardwalk Empire. Same delivery as usual for someone who is supposedly a very successful and accomplished person within their field.
