    Elden Ring

    You'll be missing out on A LOT if you just follow the main path. Go out and explore the world. You'll almost always find something interesting and worth your while.
  3. So X and Men are both available now on Prime Video. Seems almost deliberate that they added both these movies at the same time to make it look like X-Men X is an awesome slasher BTW. Go watch it!
  4. On the contrary, it doesn't feel like Star Wars at all. It's even easy to forget you're watching a SW show at times coz it plays more like a crime drama. Anyway, watched all 3 episodes, and I really liked it. Couldn't really get invested in the flashback sequences though. I feel they brought the pacing to a halt and could've been shortened up quite a bit. I otherwise loved the slower pace and how they're taking their time in telling this story. Although I'm certain many will be turned off by it. All in all, this was a really solid start and I'm looking forward to the next episode. It was refreshing to see some actual competent filmmaking on a SW show after what happened with Obi-Wan. Would recommend watching all three episodes at once coz they really feel like part of one giant episode and should've been presented as such to begin with.
  5. Viserys has quickly become my favourite character of the season, and to see him withering away with each episode is pretty sad. Loved that scene in ep 5 where he was wondering about the legacy he would be leaving behind.
  6. Since HotD has already been renewed for a second season (and will likely have more), I figured we would need this one day or the other.
  7. All spoilerific discussions of the show go here - thoughts, opinions, memes, jokes, what have you. So if you aren't caught up on the latest episode or don't want to be spoiled by the official previews of the next immediate episode, please refrain from visiting this thread. You've been warned! That said, NO BOOK SPOILERS ALLOWED (and that includes retroactive spoilers for HotD from the Game of Thrones show). Have fun!
  8. I think it was in response to this particular tweet.
  9. October 7 Not too far away now. Excited!
  10. Martin Scorsese Praises Ti West’s ‘Pearl’ "Ti West's movies have a kind of energy that is so rare these days, powered by a pure, undiluted love for cinema. You feel it in every frame. A prequel to 'X' made in a diametrically opposite cinematic register (think 50s Scope color melodramas), 'Pearl' makes for a wild, mesmerizing, deeply — and I mean deeply — disturbing 102 minutes. West and his muse and creative partner Mia Goth really know how to toy with their audience ... before they plunge the knife into our chests and start twisting. I was enthralled, then disturbed, then so unsettled that I had trouble getting to sleep. But I couldn't stop watching." Ohh man, I can't wait for this.
  11. Anyway, that was a superb episode. Just excellent all around. And Ramin Djawadi is killing it with his OST too.
  12. True. I'm somehow still optimistic with this one.
  13. The first few episodes of Andor are getting some good impressions on twitter. I'm liking what I'm reading, and it's got me excited for Wednesday.
  14. That was a fairly lengthy demo. Enjoyed it quite a bit. Though the game isn't much of a looker, there is still a noticeable upgrade in the visuals over Nioh 2. I especially loved the smoother animations. I do have some mixed feelings about the combat though. It seems to be a mixture of Nioh and Sekiro's combat with a slightly slower pace and more of an emphasis on deflecting, which I don't mind. But it also doesn't feel as responsive or as polished. Add that to the fact that there's no dismemberment or pinata-burst-like loot drops, and it made for a significantly less satisfying experience for me personally. I expect most of this will get sorted by the time game releases though. And of course, I'll definitely be playing it day one thanks to game pass. Anyway, here's a video of the boss-fight. The first phase was a push-over, but the second one was much tougher.
  15. I don't doubt the quality of the omnibus, but I was speaking specifically about the combo of 'thick matte + B&W'. I fell in love with it, and I think it merits the existence of the Noir line of books (assuming they all have similar quality). Also, I only have The Vision from Marvel (which I think I bought back in 2020), and the paper quality on that is embarrassing. Didn't know it extended to their other books as well.
  16. Yeah, it isn't meant to be a replacement of the coloured version which will always be superior. But this book has its own merit because of the really high quality matte paper and the oversized pages. The look and feel of B&W on it made for a great reading experience. This actually made me start eyeing the Sin City Deluxe Editions which apparently have really good matte paper too (and of course artwork that was conceived for B&W). They're expensive as all hell though.
  17. Everything Everywhere All At Once is releasing in theaters here this weekend. It's one of the best movies of the year. Just go see it!
