  1. Poor Cathy Yan. Every director of an episode in the series has a nomination except her.
  2. 2020 Revenue: $1,190 2020 Profit: $857 2020 Costs: ~$333
  3. Related to that: Are the berry locations random as well? If not, there are some berry bushes by the second fishing cabin down from Logjam Lumberyard, and feeding dinosaurs 3 berries is a season quest.
  4. Different museum. Eternals: Natural History Museum Moon Knight: British Museum
  5. Just on the point about the first credits scene with you-know-who showing up: I also laughed when I first saw him, but I actually thought in that 30 seconds he showed more charisma than the rest of the cast put together. Which is pretty damning. Or is that just me?
  6. I'm also reading that they are now talking about turning each page of the book into an NFT to sell, and then.... burning the book to artificially increase the price of the NFTs through what amounts to a PR stunt.
  7. The Tuksen aspect of the show so far/episode is a cross between, A Man Called Horse, Dancing with Wolves, and now Lawrence of Arabia.
  8. Saw it today. I really liked it. Way more than I expected to. Negatives:
  9. Saw it today with my son and we both loved it. Definite top 5 (3?) MCU movies for me.
  10. I have fond memories of pretending to be sick when I was 14 to rip though one of the books in a single day. Imagine The Neverending Story but with no Grandpa, and lots of Lemsip.
  11. Looking for recommendations for headsets so my son can chat to his friends on FIFA and Fortnite. Is the official Xbox one wired headset decent? No frills needed and not interested in paying too much as I suspect it will be broken in a month anyway.
  12. Had a weird bug last night where I was unable to fire any weapon or throw a grenade other than the plasma pistol. Had to restart, but the checkpoints are pretty generous so not a big deal. Also very happy I went with Heroic as it's pretty easy so far other than the odd skirmish where I'm up against a few elites/brutes and have an awkward weapon combo. Story wise, I have no idea what's going on.
  13. I'm pretty sure he can't tell anyone who sits on the Iron Throne because the plan all along was that Westeros was going to become a constitutional republic with an elected representative parliament using a bicameral system of upper and lower houses. And proportional representation as the voting system of course. No idea what plans he has for the judiciary. Maybe the spin offs can handle that, and the formation of the the civil service.
  14. I like how he made school shootings even more depressing than they already are by CORRECTLY (/Tim Rogers voice/) describing them as being perpetrated by quote/unquote (/Tim Rogers voice/) "Suicidal Children".
  15. I saw The Exorcist in the cinema on rerelease way back in 1998 (wow, that long ago? Had to look it up) but I had the same experience as you - was stunned with how good it was. There are several movies from the 70's that you can see a clear through-line from them and their influence on modern cinema and blockbusters, and The Exorcist is clearly one of them. I have seen most classic movies on a small TV, but great movies just hit you around the head when you see them on the big screen in a reparatory cinema or on rerelease (super rare). I think my favourite was a Blue Velvet / Lost Highway double bill at the Curzon Soho many years ago.
  16. I've seen every single film mentioned in this thread so far except Capernaum. I'm wondering where I have found all that time over the years! I will admit however that I only watched Commando for the first time 6 months ago. (sorry @Loik V credern) My blind spot is definitely the 'famous' Foreign movies, like those from Kurosawa, Fellini, Bergman, et al. I've seen a few of their movies but still not many of their famous ones.
  17. Dune's genre, and I'm sure I have seen this mentioned elsewhere, is more of a mythological ancient history epic, than a sci-fi or fantasy story. I can easily see the same story being as interesting if set in ancient Greece and the space ships were sailing ships, and spice was. er, spice. Curry powder perhaps.
  18. Finally saw this last night and caught up with the thread. Not read the book. I'm in total agreement with the many posters who said they could have gone straight into Dune 2. It's rare that such a long and epic movie seems to fly by. A testament to the director, editor, writers, and the way it was all brought together. I was really impressed by the ending as well, which eschewed the typical blockbuster bombast, for a more sombre personal moment for Paul. A scene based on tension and character rather than showy CGI. Shows other ways are possible.
  19. Not seeing anything wrong with that other than being a bit earnest and cheesy.
  20. This has Day One written all over it for me.
