  1. Yeah awesome little film. Saw a trailer for this at the Curzon a while back and had been keeping an eye out. It's bang on the nose at times but does a few things very differently.
  2. Couldn’t see any other mentions of this. It’s really good and a great glimpse into a world I knew absolutely nothing about and wasn’t at all how I imagined it to be.
  3. These are the absolute king of flavour for those who agree that salt and vinegar is the supreme flavour leader. Once opened they will not survive long.
  4. We’ve been having some problems with the TM. A sporadic error keeps appearing requiring a reset and then it keeps happening. something to do with the machine thinking the kid isn’t on correctly but the error code varies. Bit annoying. It seems to happen when going to higher speeds with hot mixture. Very annoying. I googled and it seems it’s not an uncommon error/problem with the TM5 and needs to be sent back. That’s a bit rubbish for such an expensive bit of kit.
  5. There was an 80s version too with different actors where they find earth and get into 80s style scrapes. IIRC. Edit: Def II on BBC 2!
  6. The A Team Battlestar Galactica Knight Rider Macguyver The A Team again as it was the best by a mile. Anyone remember Manimal? Some of these shows were just terrible.
  7. Just finished The Wall by John Lanchester. Not sure if qualifies as sci-fi, it’s more future dystopia. The critics really liked it. I thought it was ok although a little obvious. The idea of the UK being surrounded by a wall to stop Others coming in is pretty on point and giving it a climate change angle makes it feel not all that unrealistic. I can see why there are some comparisons to George Orwell but that’s probably overly flattering. Worth a few hours of your time however.
  8. So many good ones already listed. Always have a soft spot for Bridesmaids and Wedding Crashers. Dodgeball is great too. Recent good ones: Game Night and Instant Family.
  9. Saw it today with wife and kids (sat together in case you’re wondering). We all loved it. I was t exactly sure what to expect but Waititi managed to tread a fine line - it could have been a disaster but it’s funny, whimsical, sad, happy and has a super positive message all in one. The cast was pretty much great all round but Sam Rockwell is perfect for this role and the kid playing Jojo was superb. It’s been a while since I’ve been to the cinema to see something that didn’t involve superheroes - I really need to do that more often.
  10. Funny how de-ageing CGI works so differently for people. I thought this was OK, my wife found it really jarring. Marvel’s Sam Jackson she thought was flawless and I found it super uncanny valley. As for the film itself. I enjoyed it. I enjoy most of Scorsese’s stuff. I mean it’s high quality filmmaking 99% of the time. However, this wasn’t a patch on his other mob movies. The age of the actors really didn’t work for me. I understand the themes and the acting is great mostly but it just felt a bit fan service getting the guys back together for one last swan song. Having said that I’m pleased they did! I think the film was long enough that they could have cast younger actors to play the earlier years a la Godfather 2. I thought Pesci was superb and Stephen Graham steals the show. Pacino was Pacino (spittle and all) and De Niro was De Niro...it’s just a bit unfortunate his acting face now comes across as almost a parody of his own face. If you know what I mean. Also, the whole Peggy thing was just too on the nose and she didn’t ‘earn’ the right to be the only offspring that seemed to matter. Overall a lower tier Scorsese for me.
  11. A lavish Xmas present from her partner. She enjoys cooking but is pretty hopeless when it comes to tech so maybe it was that. No idea really.
  12. Mother in law has given us her unused Thermomix. It’s not the latest model though. It’s the one before. is there a big difference?
  13. I still have an unopened Gloomhaven which I bought optimistically thinking I’d get a group together to play. If anyone is looking to buy it please feel free to message me..
  14. Just noticed The Irishman is on UK Netflix. Been meaning to watch that.
