  1. Good first half. Odegaard, Saka and Martinelli have been immense. And the only chances we've given up have come from pissing around at the back. Should be more than 1 up though.

  2. Rosaline

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1777606/

     

    A comedic retelling of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," told from the point of view of Romeo's jilted ex, Rosaline, the woman Romeo first claims to love before he falls for Juliet.

     

    This is a Disney Plus comedy about Romeo’s ex and her scheme to get him back after they split up. It stars Kaitlyn Dever from Book Smart as Roslaine and Kyle Allen, channeling Heath Ledger in A Knights Tale, as Romeo.

     

    I thought this was a pretty good effort but doesn’t totally work. The cast are all great, Minnie Driver and Bradley Whitford put in good turns in support, it looks really nice and there’s some funny lines. But I was a little bored by the end and it’s only 90 minutes long.

     

    3/5

  3. I'm having a really good time with this. It achieves exactly what it set out to do. The straight-forward level design and basic maps is a nice break from modern level game design.


    It is pretty easy on the default difficulty level. Once you get the mini-gun and any of the ranged weapons you can churn through waves of monsters pretty easily. Good fun though.

    Apparently something is wrong with the Uefa fixture list and they say to disregard it until a new one is issued. Ireland, Scotland and Wales were told. Don't know about others.

     

     

     

    Best to do the whole draw again to preserve the integrity of the process. 

  5. Brilliant in the first and last minute but not great in-between. Getting overrun in midfield, Xhaka and Partay can't get a kick and Gabriel feels like an accident waiting to happen. 

  6. These are my favourite horror films of the last few years - the ones in bold are the best on the list. I'm sure there's loads I'm leaving off but you'll have a good (bad) time with any of these.

    Orphan First Kill. I think I was in a small minority of people who liked this. But if you're in the mood it's great.

    Malignant. YMMV but I loved this. Pure nonsense but so well executed.

  7. Thanks for that Significant Other write-up @Loik V credern I'll probably skip it.

     

    Watched one tonight on Shudder, Who Invited Them. A young couple throw a house-warming party, all their guests leave except for another couple who neither of the hosts know. They stay for a drink and things quickly go bad.

     

    This was fine and totally predictable. It plays out exactly as you think it will right from the start but it was well shot and acted (a lead role for Ryan Hansen from Veronica Mars) and it's wrapped up in 80 minutes.

     

    2.5/5 

  8. I'm not really a fan of his fantasy stuff and I'm finding this a real slog. Not helped by Charlie being an insufferable character. I get King is in his 70's and there's no way he's writing a convincing teenage boy but this is particularly bad. No teenager on the planet thinks and acts like this kid.
