  1. Just wondered if anyone's watching this. It's written and & directed by Peter Kosminsky who was previously behind Wolf Hall & The Promise for the BBC. Already watched the first two of four episodes, which are showing night after night, rather than a new episode a week (which tends to be how dramas are usually aired). It's pretty grim viewing, but that's to be expected. Don't recognise any of the cast but that makes it feel more genuine and documentary, in style and effect. They've also opted for a somewhat novel way to explain some of the terms the characters are using, rather than have them explained in clunky dialogue. Some lighter moments though, episode one had a Four Lions joke in it.
  2. Just borrowing a Wii U off a friend while they're away on holiday and really enjoying this. Thought for a second this morning it had forgot most of the progress I made yesterday (and that was about to sour it to me) only to discover it treats saves very differently, depending if an ext HDD is attached to it or not. The HDD was attached yesterday when I was playing, attached it since to play MK8. That configuration then seemingly reverted back to an older save (my friend clearly hadn't played it much, wasn't off the first island), but by then rebooting without the HDD attached, yesterday's save was then what it referenced.
  3. This got posted yesterday. Had already heard the audio from this post screening Q&A (the DGA not put the major ones out as podcasts) but it was a really engaging chat. The bit where Nolan says he closed his eyes during the odd shot what was filmed digitally was funny, even though I believe for certain shots on the Batman films, he opt for the same thing. This being where rather than run the risk of having a $100K Arri or Panavision camera damaged or destroyed in a driving stunt, better to sub in a $5K Canon 5D.
  4. So the director is Crispian Mills, who I assume isn't the former frontman for Kula Shaker.
  5. Oh right, thought the news of Starz scrapping this attempt meant it made it as far shooting a pilot episode. Well, like it did with Spike TV in 2008:
  6. C'mon, more details if you've got them. Who was involved in this remake?
  7. I see that amongst the main supporting cast, they've got Molly from Sherlock and Cumberbatch's ex.
  8. Someone has done this excellent video, showing the car chase route (with a few portal like jumps) for the opening car chase in BABY DRIVER
  9. It's been over 24 hrs since the release of this trailer and yet not ONE comment made in this thread, about the use of RUSH's Tom Sawyer in it.
  10. I liked this video review, in that it nailed for me why the characters were not as relatable as the one's in Wright's Cornetto Trilogy:
  11. Which particular character motivations? In terms of Kevin Spacey and John Hamm ....
  12. Surprised this thread hasn't had a bump in while, given everything that's happened in the last four episodes. Am also sorry to hear that TJ Miller is leaving but maybe it's a combo of better paying film working being too hard (and/or frustrating) to turn down, him feeling constrained by the character (who's honestly not changed or evolved much) or he's been promised his own sitcom/comedy show. Wish they'd done more with Dinesh's Seeing them cast Haley Joel Osment as a more likeable, Am beginning to get sick though of Pipe Piper's core middle-out compression being used as basically a McGuffin. In a recent episode, it was used to Oh but I have enjoyed seeing Jack Barker, freaking out about
  13. Went round to a friend's the other night, he was 10 minutes into watching it. Politeness preventing me from objecting to it running its course. Oh, and to think it had the more famous guy from Weird Science, playing a character that is the now disgraced Gen Mike Flynn (in all but name).
  14. Yeah but Who Dares Wins was a bit cheesy and bordered into macho pantomime, when it was released in the early 80's. Since then it's aged about as well as an episode of Airwolf.
