  1. I did. You’re right. I mean the thread is about films though, right? I’ve never seen the TV series to be honest. I so wanted to like the film as it came highly recommended by a good friend but I found it terribly directed. I don’t know if they were going for some old-school film noir style approach but it just felt really disjointed. The first 40 minutes had my scratching my head over who if anyone was the lead character. The series of short and pretty unconnected and seemingly irrelevant scenes made it difficult to engage with, by the time it started to gel together I didn’t feel a great deal for the plot or any of the characters.
  2. Almost everything. It was a lot of what Christopher Nolan is bad at and very little of what he is good at. The good parts: well paced, atmospheric and tense, good but not exceptional cinematography. The bad parts: poor sound engineering with soundtrack and effects drowning out the dialogue. Having said that the script in general was cliche-ridden and cringey so maybe that was intentional. There was little attempt to explain the pseudo science (I think he’s abandoned his concern for credible scientific aspects ( as per Interstellar) and just expects us to buy whatever he says. But at least Interstellar had some good human and moral aspects where as this was just vacuous Hollywood action crossed with some lazy sci-if.
  3. The Mauritanian 4/5 The Firm 3/5 The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo 3.5/5 Tinker Tailor Solider Spy 2/5 Tenet 2/5 interstellar 3/5 The Trial of the Chicago 7 3.5/5 The Lives of Others 4.5/5 Some were first time viewings and some were repeat viewings.
  4. Yep I kept an eye on it, but I fully expected them to beat Young Boys. Seeing they have failed to do so and he’s at 360k… so I feel pretty fortunate to have dipped when I did! i got it wrong with Lodi and Atlético won and he’s now at 220k or so, but I ducked out of that with profit also, so can’t be too upset.
  5. Aw I’m sorry. Yeah I neglected this thread. I feel bad. I put a lot of effort into starting it off. But I have some issues which stopped me applying myself to it. I almost deleted the thread as I was a little embarrassed I let it fall away so early. But I figured it’s better to leave it and hopefully some people benefit. I will try to get back and update it before the year is out with any other good releases.
  6. That’s awesome! And it’s a nice project, definitely recommended!
  7. thanks man. Yeah both are potential to upgrade further. Having said that, Lodi is far from guaranteed, so I’ve decided to sell him at 186k and take my profit. Fred is expected to get a TOTW this week and I believe his RTTK card to be quite heavily invested so I’ve sold out at 474k and taken the profit. I’m now at 6m liquid.
  8. Lodi RTTK - Bought for 135k and now 188k Fred RTTK - Bought for 300k and now 475k i will probably cash out on these, just want to maximise profit. Thoughts?
  9. I’m keeping myself at Div 2. Any higher and it will be WL level of sweat just to get my 7 wins. At the moment I can do it in ten games or less. I will probably push up a bit to Div 1 for the milestone rewards at the last week of the season.
  10. Can’t score one either. I scored one the first week and none since. No matter what I do they just balloon up high - not enough power or direction.
  11. the match isn’t lost before it’s kicked off. You need to try and shake this attitude! It does of course become a self-fulfilling prophecy… Qualifying is form based so if you lose your first 3 matches you’ll face others with a negative record. It’s entirely possible to lose the first 4 then win the next 5 due to easier opponents. don’t get disheartened by opponents teams - if you’re someone who is easily triggered that way… look away from the screen! It used to bug me last fifa as everyone had a better team than me, and looking away from the screen really helps.
  12. Sold up and went to a mostly untradeable team. Still got Lodi and Fred as investments which will put me at 6m liquid give or take once I sell them.
  13. Got him on my second account and play him as second ST with FB Benz. Even his 84 card was nice so he’s gonna be saucy at 87.
  14. Nice team. Hold off on Nlunku as we are getting TOTGS on Friday and I expect him to be in it.
  15. Numbers Up Declan Rice would go nice in there in place of Hendo!
  16. sounds like it’s been a good weekend for you! How you planning to spend your millions? I did every single viable flash SBC besides the 84+ Player Picks on my main account. Not a single walk-out. But a handful of 84s and a couple of discard IFs. my best return all weekend was from doing two of the 81+ Ligue 1 double upgrade as i posted earlier. WL I was 9-6 and with a chance of rank 2 but couldn’t be arsed, gave my last 5 matches away. Red picks Kroos and Felipe. TOTW Felipe and two discard IFs. Bruno and Parejo in the 100k pack. Nothing to get excited about but could’ve been far worse.
  17. Did him on my second account and was really impressed. He has a bit of the glitch effect. I was so impressed I did him on my main account after that.
  18. 85 Vinny is a significant upgrade, his finishing is noticeably better. if you want a good LW/LM that’s pretty well rounded that RB Machis is only 11k and pretty decent, felt like a budget Fekir.
  19. Promised myself no gambling SBCs however the Ligue 1 Double 81+ upgrade looked tasty. So I did two. - Navas and 82 IF - Marquinhos and Icardi Quitting while I’m ahead.
  20. i would say no. I like my CAM to have great vision, short and long passing, and neither of these are good enough for CAM in my opinion. i would say you also wanna have your best players in your team man. I can see Sanitzer and Sane in there yet you have Fekir, Theo, Hakimi and Politano on the bench…
  21. Just went 8-1 in qualifying this morning, which included 2 free win and 5 rage quits. I may have got lucky but I feel like Saturday morning may be the optimal time to try your qualifying matches.
  22. i haven’t done it and I’ve been super cautious with SBCs this year. looking at this Benzema card I agree on price-point but I think you need to factor in that he has lots of pace and much better ability and balance. It’s probably the best a Benzema card is going to be all year in terms of those meta stats. From that perspective it looks pretty good value. However I get your point about comparing it to alternatives on the market which is always a really sound logical approach.
  23. when I say 15 mins I presume you have at least some cards in your club. I’m pretty good at SBC solutions and tend to solve them myself. But even following Futbin and buying everything I would have MM done in 20 mins, it’s only four segments.
  24. i just move the starter players around to achieve good chemistry, which always then gives you a couple hundred coins. I then buy a 200 coin bronze card off the market and buy him from my main account for 10k. Then use 10k to do one of the foundation SBCs, sell every thing, move to the next foundation SBC. It was a bit fiddly at first but after doing it a few times it gets easier.
