    What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Newer films)

    Have read that while Hereditary has had (overly?) glowing critical acclaim, audiences are less enamoured.

    Think I read something recently about a Tim Burton remake of The Witches being in the works. I guess he has 'previous' with remaking Dahl, what with his version of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory (which Dahl's family said he would've preferred to the Gene Wilder flick ... apparently, he didn't like it much).

    What are you drinking tonight?

    With ginger ale is how I like my Jamesons also .

    It can project a spot on the Moon ... or at closer quarters, cut through solid metal. I will show you.

    Anyone else think Spider-Man 3 is underrated?

    Too many villains, the deeply irritating rewrite of how Uncle Ben died in order to crowbar in some sort of 'personal' conflict between Peter and Sandman, the 'What WERE they thinking?!?' sequence where the symbiote turns Peter into an emo ... yeah, I'm not a fan. Didn't like the 2 Andrew Garfield ones that much, either. The first 2 Maguire-starrers and Homecoming are the best, for me.

    Hereditary - I feel this has probably been over-praised, but there's still enough in there to give you a decent-sized dose of the heebie-jeebies.

    The Official World Cup Thread

    5 - 0 to Russia ... not that they're shit-scared of what displeasing Putin with a poor performance might bring down on them, or anything .

    A lovely tipple. Thank God not all American beers are like Budweiser and Coors Light.

    I thought the first one was kinda fun for what it was, but I utterly hated ROTF ... like being screamed at by angry kitchen appliances for 2-and-a-half hours while they're slapping you round the face at the same time. I have avoided all the subsequent Transformers flicks as a result.

    What are you drinking tonight?

    Last night, some Sainsbury's own-brand 5% dry cider ... nice in this warm weather, and not too hard on the old finances at £2.35 for a 2-litre bottle.

    Jurassic World : Fallen Kingdom - for the most part, a thumpingly fun action-adventure. I can imagine the late Doug McClure looking on from somewhere and smiling.

    Dunno about Cushing, but wasn't Guinness on record as not having enjoyed the experience?

    The Doctor Who Thread.....

    They've all been pretty hot, IMHO (apart from Donna, but she compensated with humour).
