  1. Premier League 2017/18

    I'm taking a friend to Wembley for her first live football match... I anticipate a 0-0 with very few opportunities either way. Wasn't Ozils agent just yesterday saying that things were looking good for contract talks? Although I guess a move away would be good contract talks for those two.
  2. What Did You Watch Today?

    I'd agree with it not being as good as Secret Service but it was still plenty enjoyable enough. It did seem silly spoiling something relatively big in the trailer but that's cinema these days. Regarding Mark Strong
  3. EWB Film Challenge

    We actually had started one for this year, I started off well and was over a film a day but as the years gone on I've not been able to keep up. Think I'm at around 140 for the year to date so far which isn't bad but will fall some way short.
  4. Parts you hate in games you love

    Though in Catherine at least you have the "it's my own fault" when brown stuff hits the rotating thing. Until they throw the random "it could be anything" blocks at you...

    Clearly dangerous play. A studs up kick to the face is usually pretty hard to argue against. He might well be trying to go for the ball but if you do that you can't complain if you get it wrong.

    Will it have turn signals?
  7. Sky Bet EFL 2017/18

    Great result for Boro' today, about time we held on after leading, especially after the way Newport got back for a point on day one. Could've been top if we hadn't let in those late goals but happy to still be unbeaten and seeing us score goals.

    Didn't they say it won't have any repercussions because the Community Shield is "it's own separate entity" i.e. a friendly?
  9. Sky Bet EFL 2017/18

    Well starting the season seeing six goals wasn't too bad I guess. Couldn't do much about the Newport second but disappointing to concede a pair of scrappy goals and Newport should've scored 4 with Frank Nouble making an early claim for miss of the season. Can't complain too much about the scrappy goals conceded when our first came from them working their way back from a freekick in a decent position right back to the 'keeper with our first touch being the one to take it past him and into the net and a silly penalty to concede. Still, first game of the season and a point with a few players already out injured not too bad. Hopefully iron out those niggles early as a few fixtures that look tricky early on...
  10. What Did You Watch Today?

    Yeah we went to see it yesterday on a whim and I loved it. Can see the horror comparison on that one, once they've done the set up of the three plots the tension barely lets up and you're always waiting for the next assault. Adding to the horror element Would definitely recommend it.
  11. Comic Book Films & TV

    LEGO Batman movie said it's all canon, ALL of it and as far as I'm concerned that's the definitive version.
  12. Doctor Who

    I suspect there'll be an element of it similar to how it worked with Bill where it felt like the first episode was "I'm a lesbian!" at seemingly every opportunity, after that it was never particularly played up to being too in your face. I'll concede I've only watched her debut once so maybe retrospectively it isn't so bad but it felt like on a first viewing all of her motivations were essentially "well there's this hot girl and...", I could half foresee a bit of that on the debut but we'll see with the new show runner and a chance to push a bit of a reset button what happens. Like anyone playing the doctor it's about the stories and the quirks they bring the character, write to her strengths and write decent stories and she'll be fine. Look forward to seeing what they do going forward once she's bedded into the role and the next couple of weeks over the top outrage from certain sections of the internet.
  13. The PS4 thread

    I'd wanted to give it ago for a while but ultimately it's coming at bad timing for me. I will pick it up at some point though.
  14. Premier League 2017/18

    Given they'd essentially packaged the channels like this for a while I'm not surprised by the change. Sky Sports 3/4 at the moment is very much "the golf channel" most of the time so can see why they're going with rebranding it properly going forward.
  15. General Movie Thread

    IIRC the last one ended with him going off to give his creators a piece of his mind. From what I've gathered from the trailers is that didn't go too well and he's got to help destroy Earth to bring back Cybertron. I have no idea where the alternative history stuff comes in but I'm sure it'll be explained in a very sensible and "I guess that makes sense..." way.
