    Man, it's an yearly ritual to watch MCV. Marisa Tomei :wub:


    That is one of the best movies I've watched. Smart, funny, Joe Pesci.


    I watched the movie and then 10 years down the line find out Marisa Tomei got an Oscar.

    The movie just got done. Really amazing and fun. The actors are really good. The jokes land and the plot is keeps you hooked. Go watch it.

    The critics are f**king retarded on this one. 


    This one is really under the radar. I knew about it by checking the Coming Soon page, but no one is talking about it.


    Will go watch, I have the whole week off.

    This is quite a debatable topic though, I was confused about this too when I was contemplating between the 256 and 512 MBP one last year - but then I realized buying an SSD (along with iCloud+) was a much better option than spending the extra money for 512...so I went ahead and got the 256GB, iCloud+, 1TB T1 SSD and haven't faced any space constraints. To each his own though! 

    Yeah. Didn't want the hassle basically but I'll talk to him and see.

    Can you apply bank cashback offer too on student offer? 

    Not on Apple's website. You may be able to do this at physical retail shops, 3rd party apple retailers but they won't offer free airpods.

    Nope. Will be ordering via Apple's website itself.


    Its a solid deal, 90K for the Macbook Air, plus free airpods.

    My mom needs a pair so it works out perfectly.



    256 is actually pretty less. I bought the 512 GB variant myself last year, but its no longer available for the M1 chip Macbook Air.


    For storage option I have to get M2 which is significantly more expensive. Dammit

    Offline shops don't give as much student discount as Apple online store. Are you also getting 6k cashback via HDFC cards ? 

    If yes, that'll be great buy ! 


    Yeah I have HDFC card for that discount. So with student discount+HDFC combined I might get same price at a store.


    But free airpods is a really solid deal tbh, don't think any stores will offer that. I'll call Logix RD and Croma once and see, otherwise proceed on Apple's website. 

    Wish delivery times were faster, it says the earliest is 9th August. 

  6. Hey. Looking to buy a Macbook Air for my dad, using my student discount. I noticed that airpods are free with a purchase on Apple's website - same deal as last year when I bought one for myself. 


    Will any physical stores price match this deal, or is this the best option? Buying M1 only, more than enough firepower. 

    I'm hoping to get one quickly, because buying directly from Apple usually takes 2 weeks to arrive. 


    @Bird Bird Birdany insight?

    This is Us and Virgin River are both brilliant shows that you can watch with family.

    This is Us is a little heavy at times but man what a show.  


    Haven't heard of the former but I shall check it out. 


    Virgin River is def fairly light. Perfect to de-stress. 

    Amazing gorgeous location too.

    No downside. You will share the 12 complimentary lounge access with whoever has the card. 


    Okay yeah that should be okay.


    Dad has multiple cards, even with multiple flights a week he never runs out so should be alright. I only travel once every couple months. Thanks!

  9. Hey. My dad has an account with HDFC and a Regalia card. He mostly uses Axis Bank Vistara Signature card as he flies a lot and travel miles are better for us, so never upgraded Regalia.


    I don't have a consistent paycheck in college, but have got a Regalia add-on card now. I wanted one for lounge access at airports etc.


    The benefits are same as regular Regalia card? Any downside compared to individual Regalia card?

    Ah I didn't know it was based on a book. I enjoy the show as well, especially the location; it's gorgeous. The cabin in the woods and peaceful atmosphere is very enticing. Will probably binge it over the weekend. 


    Yeah for once I didn't press next and it was mentioned in the ending credits.


    I'm pretty sure its shot in British Columbia/Alberta Canada. Cannot agree more, its just beautiful.

    Watching this show is almost like taking a vacation.


    I will watch with the family, so it usually goes slower but shouldn't take longer than a week! Will also start on Friday.

    Yeah, I just saw the alert of Season 4 coming tomorrow. I totally forgot it had a season 4 planned out. 


    Yep comes out sometime today.


    They have started production for Season 5 as well, its on their instagram and twitter. We usually get the season in the summer, so same time next year.


    I personally haven't read the books but I hope there is enough material for a couple more seasons as I do enjoy this show greatly.

  12. Excited for Virgin River Season 4 to drop on Netflix tomorrow.


    Great family show, solid writing great plot characters etc. 


    Highly recommend grabbing a bowl of popcorn and watching this with parents, kids, siblings, grandparents. 

    All around feel-good family show.

    Galadriel is being played by that actress from Saint Maud. She was so good in that movie.


    Also, the production values look insane! Hope the show itself turns out well.


    I would caution anyone to not get over-hyped for this. 


    Yes it LOOKS stunning but Amazon poured an insane amount of money into this. But money can't buy good writing to well done character development. They don't own the rights to the Simarillion - but they are including some things with changed names and changing events a lot. 


    I'm hoping I'm wrong and it turns out amazing, but after Wheel of Time - I'm expecting the worst but praying for the best. 

  14. Went and watched The Black Phone at the theatre. 


    I really liked it a fair bit. Noir, horror, thriller - with a kid at the center cuz thats the best way to do it with a very interesting premise.

    Much better bang for my buck than f**king Thor.


    @STICK3Rboyit was quite good! 


    I think I've seen like 6 movies at the cinema hall in the past month haha.


    Would have gone for The Gray Man as well but will netflix it. In this case I have read the book and I think Netflix has f**ked up the source material, per usual.

    Any recommendations for Mystery/Thrillers? I am on Audible.


    Recently finished  "The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle" and "The Devil and The Dark Water" from Stuart Turton, both were spectacular, especially The 7 deaths... blew my mind.


    oh yeah Ive heard those are really good!


    I've heard good things about The Secret History, by Donna Tartt. and if you want to pick up an episode series of mysteries - the Arliss Cutter mystery books by Marc Cameron are really good.

    Took these with the X-E4, same sensor as x-T4.


    Yoooo those are some crispy shots. awesome!


    @Bird Bird Birdhave been a bit out of loop this year, but I think you'll find most people recommending Sony when it comes to mirrorless. 

    Full Frame is more expensive of course, but the A7R range has sold super well and is just a very reliable option. 

  17. I own a Sony A6000 camera. Only have the kit lens, don't have any additional equipment. 


    Haven't used it for quite a bit now, plus I now own an iPhone 12 so covered in terms of casual pictures.


    I'm thinking the A6000 is a bit old now, even though my own has seen little use. Should I sell it off, and free up some money?


    I plan to go on a few trips later this year, will buy something newer then. Will cost more but I should be able to afford it then.
