  1. Just saw The Accountant.....wasnt expecting much, just wanted to kill a couple of hours after spending all weekend digging the garden up. Turned out to be an enjoyable little film, for what it was. I did figure out (almost) all of the story beats about 30 minutes in, and some of mr accountants characterisations were laid on a bit thick, but I suppose if you're gonna cast affleck you might as well play up his er, limited emotive range. Otherwise surprisingly great casting. Got a lol out of the 'elliot ness' line.
  2. Been playing around with a cool little experimental algorithmic tool that I randomed across on someones portfolio, GauGAN. http://nvidia-research-mingyuliu.com/gaugan Might be a fun little way of quickly comping together a plate to work further on top of with more traditional means. Or just to dick around with for luls. Apparently there are some GANs that can do pretty good faces now too. Not at all creepy. Nope.
  3. Cant help wonder what theyre flying around in either. It sure as fuck isnt any proper starfleet ship. Even for a small one, the visual language is all off. Too utilitarian.
  4. I wasnt 100% sure that was even a gag. I could well beleive someone might have a creepy blacksite full of ex-borg they arent quite sure what to do with.
  5. Is it gonna be good? It looks good. Surely not. Also, Stewart really does sound old now, doesnt he? I guess that's the point, but having not seen Logan that's surprised me a bit. So, err, who the fuck do we think mcguffin girl is? Something borgy?
  6. I didnt even know this was a thing 5 minutes ago, but fuckit, I'm on board. Now, to invite a bit of baseless speculation ontop of all the plane-talk........as well as the hornets and tomcats (good eye btw), I also noticed they have unusual looking flightsuits/helmets in a few scenes (you can see cruise has a neckring during his 'chat'). Have to wonder what that is about. Reminds me a hell of a lot of the high-altitude gear you'd have U2 pilots using back in the day.
  7. Maybe not 'smell the fart' acting, but I know what you mean. He always made me think he'd recently popped some eyedrops in from having been lookings at screens all day. Always has big wet wells where a normal persons pupils should be.
  8. I picked a hell of a time to start paying attention to football again. Fucking scenes. Kind of nice to be in my position in a way because clearly all the conventional thinking has gone totally out the window now anyway.
  9. Errrrrrr....good bananas in my case but with a bunch of heavy qualifiers. I think you need to be of a certain mindset. I was watching it half asleep in bed this morning, and expected it to be a bad curiosity at most, so expectations were low for one thing. Also, I decided early on to treat it almost like a live action anime. You have the absurd setup for a start, the questionable overdubs and writing, the hokey trope characters, the cheesy melodrama.... Oh, and their solution to the big problem in the final 30 minutes or so actually made me laugh out loud. Dunno if that was quite their intent but they didnt seem to take themselves too seriously. A strictly alright film if you fancy some throwaway silliness.
  10. I've always maintained that a lot of what made the robo-baddies so creepy is the stop-motion animation, although I will concede that the lawnmower-man treatment of Cain probably helped. Shit, now I really wanna know what the optimal fps for creepiness is, and why. I wonder if it triggers some instinctive subconscious association with insect movement or something?
  11. I chose a fucking good time to start paying attention to this stuff again.
  12. Good stuff. Also, fuck knows. When I last kept up with football my mate was an avid man u fan, so that made it easy - I'd support whoever their main opposition was, because you have to undermine your mates always, obviously. Now that their main opposition is apparently everyone it makes things a bit harder. It looks like I might have missed the tail-end of Leicesters uncharacteristic amazingness streak too. There's someone pretty tasty in the office who is a lifelong liverpool fan, but I'll try not to let that sway me too much. Still....not gonna be spurs, is it? I appreciate the attempt anyway guys. They're also trying to teach me Gujarati if anyone wants to help with that.
