  1. Five is the best of the stupid action ones, I'll give it that. The best is the first one though, and I'll be amazed if I ever change my opinion on that. Two and three are fun and, for me, still good for the 'scene' as it was at the time. Since then they're got progressively sillier and worse, with the exception of five actually being a good action film despite being a stupid F&F film. I used to love F&F films, and used to look forward to watching them as soon as I could. The last few have been pretty bad, so now I just wait for them to come on something I have access to just to see how bad they've got.
  2. I love Twister - it's up there with my favourite movies ever, so I'll definitely check this out. Won't be the same wthout Dustin or The Extreme though..
  3. That's way to complicated for 99.99% of those who are password sharing though.
  4. Bridge ball was my favourite, followed by Skipping Stones. Someon e getting completely beaned in the face on Bridge Ball will never not be one of the funniest things in existance. Skipping Stones I was allways amazed at that nobody ever died (well, that I know of)...
  5. Fixed? They would have ruined it if they 'fixed' that.
  6. I hope that doesn't mean Netflix don't get it... I also hope it was written as a final season and wraps things up well.
  7. I thought it was all over the place from the end of the first episode really. Very odd soundtrack choices, clearly inspired by Britannia and then later Hellraiser. Plus Warwick Davis' acting was shite for most of it.
  8. Sorry, I thought it was only available as an app on the Apple TV, not that it was generally available on the App Store for other Apple products. Still, I don't know what Paramount are playing at not having the same level of quality that the other big boys have available in the UK. Especially considering that it's there in the US. First World problems and all that, and maybe they're trying to save on bandwidth costs?
  9. Standalone apps ae now available on the Apple App store, the Google Play Store and also on the LG Content store. I imagine it's also available on other stores/devices, too. Yet, still no 4K, HDR, or surround sound...
  10. Yeah, if I don't end up cancelling because of the pssword sharing bollocks, I don't think I'll start a new show unless it has multimple seasons and a non cliffhanger ending to them. Purely becuase of the cancellations. I hope for less cliffhanger endings to everything really - that fucks me off a lot.
  11. I've been saying I'll make a start on Horizon Forbidden west so I can get to the snowy parts in time for Christmas and next week, but I'll probably end up spending the time in GTA Online.
  12. They're both really. He recaps, and goes into further detail using book references and other lore, each episode.
  13. Yeah, I expect both the PS5 and XBSX have apps, but I didn't think about them before I yarred the copy and watched that. Film was OK, nothing special imo.
  14. And the car appraisal option in the used car dealer isn't showing for me, so I can't get rid of the shit I don't want for any return. Fuck me...
  15. This is shit imo. There, I said it. It's all so self congralutatory and up its own arse. It might be a good racer (and the cars are enjoyable to drive for the most part), but it's a shit game. It's the stingiest fucking game ever, the "reward" roulette type tickets are a fucking joke, giving the minimum at all times. Progression is locked behind a crap game of shitty fetch quests from a load of personality devoid avatars meaning you get a garage full of shit you don't want, but need to use in the crappy low level races you have to do before you can unlock anything decent. And the rolling starts a also a fucking joke unless you OP your cars to catch up within the two laps they give you for most races within the first ten hours. Meh, a wasted purchase. I loved, loved, GT1 and 3, too.... I should have known as it was similarly po-faced in GT5.
  16. I don't take it as pissing on my chips tbh. I have Andor to watch next and that brings me up to date with all the latest Star Wars stuff. I really liked the character in Rogue One, so am looking forward to it.
  17. Just finished watching Obi Wan this afternoon and thought it was OK, with some really good bits and some pretty poor bits. My thoughts: Ewan McGreggor was a better Obi-Wan in this than he was in the prequel films. I loved little Leia. I thought she was well written and really well acted. Some great little mannerisms from the actress. I welled up in her first and last scenes too. I think that's because of how much the charater means to me though. I thought Reva was a weak character who had ridiculous character motivations. Tala was a great character. The retconning was strong with this one.
  18. I watched them all this week and largely agree with the criticisms from everyone, and yet I still found it very enjoyable and liked the progression/change in Boba's character. Maybe I'm just a Star Wars apologist/sucker, but it's still so great to be back in the Star wars universe. I do think the mods were pretty shit though, and the two of them that spoke were not the best actors... Also thought some of the fight choreography was pretty poor with stupid flash moves that serve absolutely no purpose and would also be a liability more than a benefit. The Mod dude with the swishy cape doing a stupid twirl before getting a shot off to a syndicate member being the worst example. Bloody crackin' effects work on Luke again though, and I also liked the stop motion effects.
  19. I've been infuriated with the app on LGCX these last two days. I've been trying to watch Shang-Chi, but the subs for non english speaking parts keep packing up and all the googling I've done just comes up with results for subs not working at all. I've not chosen any subs, so it's just the non-english parts which are auto subbed that I am having an issue with. The issue I get is that they start off working OK, then when the foreign dialogue has finished for a bit, when it starts again, the subtitles dont appear again. To get them to appear again I either need to skip back a bit, or stop and restart the stream. I stopped and started the app - didn't work. I cleared the cache (no idea if it did that or not, as the guide told me to go to the WebOS browser and delete web browsing cache and history) - didn't work. I deleted and reloaded the app - didn't work. I got fed up of farting around with it, so yarred a copy instead. Hopefully the subs will be there all the way through on that when I try watching it again for the third day in a row. Anyone else get this? I don't seem to have the problem on anything else luckily. I've been watching a fair amount of the Star Wars shows and they have plenty of alien language that is auto subbed and those subs don't pack up.
  20. You've Ricky DVT'd it petrolgirls.
  21. It hasn't got Star Trek Lower Decks, sadly. That's still on Amazon prime.
  22. I'm extremely disappointed with them because they still haven't yet got proper apps on smart TV's and the like and also don't stream in 4K* HDR/DV Atmos sound etc in the UK. I've had the service available to me via my Sky sub since they launched, but the only thing I've watched of its content so far has been Yarred 4K HDR rips of Halo and Star Trek Strange New Worlds because it's only 1080p via the Sky app still. *Their support page does say the Apple TV 5 can do 4K, but doesn't say if that's in the UK and I'm not going to buy yet another device just for yet another streaming service. I've already got what I would think are some of, if not the, the most common higher end devices they should be aiming to have 4K HDR enabled apps available on; LG CX, PS5, XBSX, PC (well, no-one actually cares about proper apps for PC) Sky Q UHD; so am mind boggled it;s not available pretty much out the gate.
  23. Morbius I don't know what so many people found so offensively bad in this film. I found it to be quite enjoyable really. Yeah, it's not going to win any oscars and the action suffers from a much overused quick cut editing style, so you can't see anything much happening apart from a load of shrapnel and particle effects buzzing about the place. But that's a criticism that can be levelled at the majority of action films for the last 25 years. It was also refreshing to see a superhero film end without half a city having been destroyed by the end. I even thought there was nothing wrong with the performance from Jared Leto. 3/5 from me.
