    I've noticed this is on Netflix now. I've a patchy love/hate opinion on Tarantino films, seeing as they are always so long, is this one worth the time investment? 


    I've liked Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown and Django, but not the others (although still haven't seen the Hateful 8).


    Is this for me? 

    It seems to be a love/hate film. Be prepared for a relaxed pace.

  2. I am about to delete Axiom Verge 1 from my card. It was a game of modest storage space that never made the cut when a big new release came about. Now I'll never return to it as I download the sequel. Breath of the Wild's two year no play streak is looking pretty tempting to finally make that sacrifice.

  3. Jeff seems to be living his best life on Twitter, so I still subscribe. Can’t say I’ve taken advantage of any of their content in the past year, or can afford…things.

  4. The “bet you didn’t see that coming” gag from Age of Ultron is still the best laugh from the MCU. In his own words “it should have been me!” We were all ready then, but you had a to go and grab some character development.

  5. I’ve had it since launch and forced the update a few days ago when I thought it’d give me a dumb reason to get back to it someday.


    Sat there for 60 seconds or more for it to load.


    Just make it with 90’s sprites and boot it immediately. It’s the same gameplay loop. We figured this out with other genres by now.

  6. I definitely played this to the point of the time travel desert, but I’ve completely lost all but a few snapshot recollections. It’s a refreshing new old style Zelda.


    Playing OOT at 13 years old there was one puzzle that stumped me; gaining entry to the old Link fire dungeon. With this it feels like I’ve ran into that kind of thing a few times and have lost my Zelda grammar.

    On the bum subject, all of that was very definitely placed in there, I think. Scarlett's one of the Executive Producers on this film; if she didn't want gratuitous arse shots in there, I doubt they'd have made the cut. 


    She'll have had her money hat on, knows sex sells, and would have greenlit having a few cheeky moments snuck in. 



     I wouldn’t rewatch it so quick in non covid times. But rewatched it. EP job, she did. There were a lot of butt shots.


    Like…really too many. You reflexively enjoy them in the moment if you’re inclined, but it was cynical.

    Confused.  What does this mean?! 

    There’s a lot of background noise with the implied investment in this universe that doesn’t quite tie in with “let’s put a purple filter on and see how that works”

  9. I’ve not read up on it but that’s part of the reason I’ve turned against the show a little. It looks spectacular. They’re  not SG-1 in the 90’s returning to the same Vancouver quarry to dance in front of squibs. But for our time it feels…rewritten, or given up on. The more it sits with me the less well it sits.

    I’m going to visit the Glasgow set tomorrow. Dragging the kids, making them see the stuff I love the way my Dad did back in ‘91 when he dragged us around Laytown to see ‘The Crying Game’ filmed. 


    Very jealous. It’ll probably be Ford lighting one up and pretending to be busy for the cameras hiding behind some curtains, but it’s Indy.

    Thought I'd finally get around to playing Super Metroid on the Switch SNES VC.


    I had a SNES growing up but never had Metroid - the series as a whole is a blind spot for me. Interestingly I never had any deeper single player SNES games as a child (e.g RPGs,Metroidvanias, etc.). Multiplayer stuff or level based platformers that I could play with friends was basically it. 


    Anyway, like an hour in. It's good, I never got into a Metroidvania game before if I'm honest. I played one of the Shantae games once, but found it frustrating and game up pretty quickly. Hopefully I don't find myself doing that again with Super Metroid.

    I’m fairly confident that I once watched a complete speed run of Super Metroid back in the day, yet have never invested those couple of hours to actually play through it. Meanwhile I could knock out Sonic 2 in 50 minutes with a blindfold on.


    I might try to motivate myself into playing it this weekend ahead of what we’re getting from the franchise down the road.

    I thought the bigger one was a boy until a pronoun was used- maybe 5 mins after her/his first appearance!

    Same. I feel like that was a deliberate choice. The hair colour throws you off at first, but of course her character has a different hairstyle each movie even to the point of them making a targeted gag to that effect in this movie.


    But at the time of the early dramatic close up I’d be fooled into thinking Scarlett recorded it 30 years ago.
