    Line of Duty

    Anyone else watching this on BBC2? It's quality drama, well acted and tense as fuck.
  2. Anyone unsuccessful in the ballot for final tickets on here? If so, if you're not going to the official screening at the Echo could anyone spare us their season ticket/members number for the pre-sale? Don't need any personal details, just the number? Cheers.

    New HBO Series: Game of Thrones

    In the end it was a very tame and very safe finale. The whole final season was a series of missteps and the red flag became obvious when the Night King was dealt with in one battle. I didn't come away from last night's episode annoyed or down as I quite enjoyed seeing Bronn, Tormund and Ghost again but the way Danerys was dispatched with little immediate aftermath was very weak. She was far from my favourite character but she was really poorly served by the writers in this season. You'd have needed far better foreshadowing, and much more focus on the heartbreak of losing Jorah (who she once banished), Rhaegal and Missandei than the series managed, to justify to her actions to destroy King's Landing and Jon's decision to kill her. If we have to join too many dots ourselves then it's a fault of writing. In fact, in the final hour she's barely mentioned. Another forgotten tyrant, her entire arc was meant to be someone who was raped, abused, survived many near death scrapes, who conquered and freed people to ascend the throne and build a better world but at the last minute she was written like a Vince McMahon swerve just to swerve the fans. Very few shows finish well (Mad Men probably is the leader in the clubhouse for the last decade) but two years wait and only six episodes to deliver a season that felt sloppy and rushed can only be labelled a disappointment. A rewatch in a year or two might be more favourable to it but I feel like if I rewatch it I'll stop on the cliffhanger of S7.

    Captain Fantastic - Viggo Mortensen as the father of 6 kids brought up as survivalists and away from modern society. Nice comedy drama with some great performances by the kids. 8 out of 10 Lady Macbeth - Period drama with Florence Pugh as a young woman married to an older bloke who's a bit of a bastard. Once he and his dad are away on business she begins an affair with a stable hand and... it deviates a little bit from where you think it'll go. Interesting up to a point but it's told in that modern British way of not much dialogue, moody landscape shots and grim music. If that's not for you then you'll hate it; otherwise it's 6.5 out of 10

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    I get Palace pricing Zaha that high. He's worth that much to them, they'd need to buy loads of forwards to cover his absence.

    New HBO Series: Game of Thrones

    Been left disappointed by this season. The brevity of it coupled with it leaping into plot strands and character decisions because of said brevity is making it difficult to fully enjoy. That's not to say The Bells wasn't a wonderfully filmed episode with some great scenes but it's got to show it's working out a little bit more to justify character motivation and it hasn't been able to. I've seen some online criticism of Arya deciding not to go after Cersei but I had no problem with that, though the reason why perhaps wasn't made crystal clear, and the Mountain vs. the Hound got some criticism and I kind of get that but I still liked it.
  10. Eh? What about it? Controversial twist on a popular thread. Probably a few rules like demos don't count and if you've only played it for 30 minutes that doesn't count either. If you can review and describe games that you've completed, that may make for a more complete experience although I understand that bad games generally don't get completed because they're, y'know, bad.
  11. He shouldn't go there though. There's no clear development of youth going on there any more.
  12. Is that Dan James? Because he is good.

    Danny Baker's..

    Difference is he does know about the long history of Africans being compared to monkeys, there's absolutely no way he doesn't. It's long been a slur in football in this country and at the football club he follows. That's not even including how embedded in society it has been, especially for a man of his age.

    Danny Baker's..

    I couldn't tell you if he's racist because I don't know the inner workings of his mind. It's a racist joke though, inadvertent or not.
  15. Getting told to fuck off by the Kop when Robbo was down was definitely the moment where he no longer was a threat in the game. He was stood there, hands on knees, nothing happening and listening to the entire Kop telling him to fuck off. If he honestly thought he was getting a warm welcome then that will have really stung him. Live by the sword, die by the sword innit.

    Philippe Coutinho

    Very ineffectual in both games, doesn't look comfortable or happy there but you make your choice and he made his. I'd never say never to him coming back but I'd rather a speed merchant who's good to go into the front three rotation. The old adage of being careful what you wish for never felt more relevant.

    Who do we want in the final then?

    Oh we're arguing about centre backs instead. Cool cool cool cool.

    Danny Baker's..

    He's a knob, no idea if he meant it but if his defence was "didn't realise the connotations of a mixed race child being lampooned by a monkey picture" then he's also an idiot.

    Who do we want in the final then?

    Taken the shine off it by having to play Spurs. The risk/reward balance is too great, the teams are too familiar with each other and it'll end up feeling like a league game. I also worry about the law of averages, we've beaten Spurs twice this year and the likelihood of a third doesn't seem high. Was looking forward to three weeks of build-up against Ajax and now I'm just fucking worried.

    Rate the last film you watched...

    Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile - Movie about Ted Bundy that I'm not sure knew what it wanted to do. If it wanted to focus on the women that were romantically involved with him then it failed. If it wanted to show how a dangerous individual can be normal then it failed. If it wanted to highlight the depravity of Bundy then it failed. Instead we get Bundy slightly sexualised with an ill-advised romantic scene and a scene where's he beaten in his cell which would seem to be designed to illicit sympathy if we didn't know who the subject was. Zac Efron was fine as Bundy but I couldn't see him as much other than Zac Efron. The female roles are rubbish, reduced to love-struck idiocy or brooding drunk. As a biopic it doesn't emphasise just how depraved Bundy's crimes were and it didn't provide enough to understand the women's actions toward Bundy. Disappointing, watch the documentary series on Netflix which, weirdly, is from the director of this film. 3 out of 10.
