    Video Game Thread II

    Apparently the latest PSN firmware is banning the hackers. Anyway, this weekend I restarted Batman: AA. Still a freakin' classy piece of gaming arse.
  2. Maybe I'm wrong about it, but I don't feel like I've picked up on any buzz or goodwill about the show online since its return. It makes me think S5 will surely be the last. Tambor's involvement seems to be too problematic for people, that I have noticed. Personally, I will view his character at face value, of course I will. Otherwise, the first three seasons would be ruined too, which would be an absurd way to look at it as far as I'm concerned.
  3. The re-edited/remixed cut of Arrested Development season 4 ("Fateful Consequences"). It was truly and definitively terrible. A harrowing experience which felt like settee based hard labour, I'm actually pretty impressed with myself for getting through all 22 agonising episodes of it. 1 out of 5 stars. But I did it out of loyalty and to give the new season the best chance of being worthwhile.

    The Tablecloth

    Not policing just remarking on the increase in shitpostings. I only used to see that in Facebook meme groups.

    Michael Moore makes his predictions known.

    If Piers wasn't a complete and utter cunt in the way he debates people he may have more effectively made his point and come off somewhat the victor, because I do see the double standards of the protest brigade, too. But Piers can't help himself. That "guess a figure" part was just excruciating.

    Here, have a bag of likes, thanks and laughs for your low effort post. For your trouble. Place has gone downhill. It's low quality Reddit memery at best.

    The Tablecloth

    Is there an edge to this thread (and tablecloth) that is beyond my comprehension or something?
  10. Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey. A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?
  11. I think you meant to say, "and I."
  12. I couldn't find a relevant thread with the search function (and believe me, I looked) so I'm posting this here: http://www.empireonline.com/news/feed.asp?NID=23521 If an upcoming projects thread already exists this will need moving, but if not then I guess we now have a place to discuss future movies which aren't necessarily anything to do with John Williams, Indiana Jones or Spielberg etc and all in one tidy thread.

    The Official Future Films Thread

    I know you're joking, but my mum, who is a lifelong fan, was that annoyed with them casting a woman as Doctor Who that she said she won't watch be watching it anymore.

    Brexit: The Official Thread

    Trump does tick some of these boxes, sadly, but maybe that's why some find him, I dunno, refreshing? I mean, to me there's nothing worse than a scripted and slick (read: dishonest) politician. It's just a pity that Trump tips a bit too far into the unpalatable side of right wing worldly view on most subjects, because the colourful language and indiscreet style I can live with. I dunno, maybe some acting lessons before he got into this field would have taken the edge of him a bit, made him seem slightly more conventional for people who feel they need to see that in an MP. As for his recent BREXIT remarks in an interview with a British tabloid, well it's worth saying that plenty here agree with what he said. Which is naturally an extremely difficult situation for the UK to be in (on top of the problems we already have).

    Brexit: The Official Thread

    Germany runs the EU and apparently (although not really) Russia controls Germany. LMAO

    The Official World Cup Thread

    Whenever I read Wikipedia entries on countries I learn a bit about them too, it's handy like that.
  17. I stuck it out for around ten. It was sort of a self flagellation exercise for me, spurred on by the annoyingly intriguing macguffin set up in epi 1.
  18. I'm not a huge fan of Coldplay or anything, but their latest song is very nice. What I find particularly special and more importantly; refreshing about the song is the sub-orchestral music which accompanies the lyrics themselves. Apart from the obvious beat, the music is made up mainly of strings and timpani, which as we all know is not exactly a common occurrence in the world of popular music. The melody itself is about as simplistic as they come and that is of course a great thing, Viva La Vida is one helluva catchy record and I'm glad it made number one in the UK sales chart, indeed they're something of an institution here. It's nice when something a little more unconventional, more my taste, makes the top spot. Have you heard it yet? Link to iTunes commercial Link to song. <--- Listen!

    Maybe, but why "pretend" to have never heard of a fairly prominent European country when the only reasonable outcome is that you look thick as fuck?

    Joaquin Phoenix becomes the latest Joker in the pack - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-44791271 Finally a "superhero" movie that I would like to see.
