Re: Movie mini reviews

Ocean's Eight The cast are all great and do a good job. Nice little twist near the end. I felt it was lacking something during the 'setup' part of the film compared to Ocean's Eleven. On the whole, it's okay to good and I enjoyed watching it, but it really doesn't do anything new. Skyscraper The Ro...

Opinions below No, you're not in a minority. Saw it last night with a group and about half of us came out with mixed feelings on it.

Re: Movie mini reviews

Dunkirk

It's excellent, both on a technical level, and as a vehicle for the its subject matter and the stories around it.

Chris Nolan deserves and hopefully will earn an Oscar for this.

Watch in IMAX only.

Baby Driver

It's very slick, a rather good film and one I very much enjoyed. Please go watch.

Easily a solid 8/10

Re: Movie mini reviews

Been on a cinema spree again. Alien: Covenant I'm on the fence with this. Prometheus was interesting, if having a few stupid plot devices which impacted the film negatively, whereas this has a few good points but generally seems like not a lot of thought went into the plot. Quite a few things done b...

Re: Movie Trailers

Looks promising. Can't decide if was a bit too spoilery though, it certainly hinted very strongly at a couple of things.

5 in total, but they're mixed with the credits which is a nice change.

I concur, it be good!

Re: Movie mini reviews

Ghost In The Shell (2017) It's actually decent. Worth a watch and as visually it is spot on and does exactly what it needed to do, it is best seeing in IMAX form. As a film it falls somewhere between a remake and a reimagining of the original. Takes the characters, themes and (at a very abstract le...

Re: Movie mini reviews

Power Rangers (2017) It's not great, but it's not actually massively terrible. It doesn't fall into the "so bad it's good" territory because it's got some redeeming qualities. It is basically a big screen version of the early 90's series, cheesiness and all, just tarted up and given the H...

Re: Recommended Reading

Altered Carbon A re-read. Read this when it first came out - I have it in some sort of weird hybrid hardback/paperback copy. Read it again as they're making a Netflix series about it. Mix of gritty detective novel and violent sci-fi. It's good, but it's not particularly deep. At times it feels auth...

It's still only £6.99 at full price :) That said, I'd definitely wait to see what happens on the 23rd when Afgan' '11 launches.

Vietnam '65 Hex based wargame, based around winning the Hearts and Minds of the villages in a randomised section of La Drang valley over a set number of turns (45 on Normal). You do this by having your infantry units visit the villages to try and get intel, and acting upon it, along with the occasi...

Re: Movie mini reviews

Logan It's good. It's a much more serious film than most Marvel affairs and is quite a good send off for Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and Sir Patrick Stewart's Xavier. Don't watch the trailers if you haven't already seen them though, they give away quite a bit. Oh, and unusually there's no post credits...

Re: Necromunda

I did see you playing it and was wondering what you'd make of it. Concur with your points, the working strategy for Mordheim is to have your gang try and single out members of the opposing gang and flatten them, rather than go mano-a-mano in general. The fact it's not a bad system overall means it's...

Re: Necromunda

I'd feel a lot more optimistic if they did a Blood Bowl and stuck to the board game formula. 'Not nearly as shit as it was at release' isn't much of an accolade. We live in hope though. "Not nearly as shit" isn't how I meant that, I think it's actually a decent game. M:CotD isn't too far ...
