    Prey - Predator sequel movie dropped this week on streaming platforms. Very good, stays close to the original Predator 1 & 2 formula. Lots of your expected gadgets with satisfying usage. Interesting newish pred design, a real baller. Very surprised with this one compared to the other two sequels we've had which weren't great. Easily rate this third favourite behind 1 & 2. Hopefully they go with Assassins Creed route of dropping the predator into different time periods. Samurai vs predator, anyone?
  7. The Lord of the Rings And The Hobbit

    Sounds like you just have a thing against short people...
  8. The Lord of the Rings And The Hobbit

    I honestly hope it doesn't follow the hobbits too much... they have had 6 movies...
  9. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    Yeah accurate enough
  10. The Lord of the Rings And The Hobbit

    You won't need to look for a new job because we'll have already lynched you.
  11. The Lord of the Rings And The Hobbit

    Ohhh.... I am in the mood for a new LOTRs saga! If it ends up not being good do I have to look for a new job?
  12. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order

    I still haven't finished it once...
  13. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order

    Finished this game again (at home sick due to Covid) on Jedi Knight, loved it yet again. I think all future games where you play a lightsaber user needs to have the same level if not more customisation of the hilts and emitters!

    Here comes our next LOTR saga:
  16. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    Overall I enjoyed it but gee.. they are really going for quantity over quality lol This kind of sums up how the meetings would go..
  17. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    The perfect way to describe it!
  18. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    Yeah Pench clone wars is hard to get through. Lots of filla between some awesome killa! I should stop saying Disney as its still made by Lucas Film. But yeah has been a problem for a while now even before the Disney takeover. I think stems from the prequels and continued on where they tried to make it too much for kids while also trying to keep the adult audience and have never gotten the mix right and most times just down right wrong. The OT was never made for kids but George made that much money of the Merchandising that he fell into the trap of making it too much for kids to sell toys and as you know what Disney is all about its definitely been exacerbated! Loved the Hello There trow back as well. Probably the most all time SW meme out there. I was expecting Qiu Gon's Voice as well Shrives. Yeah Vader leaving Reva alive just points out the tad bits of bad writing. Just make her escape some how by the skin of her teeth etc. It's littered with this type of stuff through out the series. Like Vader pulling down one ship escaping so why not the second? Doesn't ruin it for me but stops the series from being fully awesome instead of just good.

    And as Vader proved, she's definitely not a threat to them. Kenobi couldn't even bring himself to finish off Vader a second time around, so I'm not surprised he chose to doing nothing about Reva either.
  20. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    Cass questioned a lot of Reva's storyline, she couldn't believe Vader and the GI kept her alive and I had to explain the Sith are more interested in future manipulation and use of their agents rather than just offing them because they are threats. But yeah I feel like Reva's character was both well and terribly written in some parts.
  21. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    I agree that they did well tidying up a few things going into ANH. The fight scene was fantastic. I expected to hear Qui Gon when he was covered in rubble to help him get out. I did not expect to see him at the end; that was just icing on the cake. As was the "hello there". I think the final fight was spectacular enough to make sense in ANH when Vader goes "I sense something; a presence I've not felt since...". He's clearly going to remember this showdown, where he still got his arse kicked. So now the question is, do we see a season 2? Do we want/need a season 2? Finally, we're just leaving Reva around with the knowledge of who Darth Vader is and his kids? Okie doke.
  22. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order

    So I've downloaded this again to play on PS4, might try an easier difficulty to burn through it for the story 😅
  23. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    I agree with Noods and Pench. Some really really silly writing sprinkled around. Having finished Fallen Order, I noticed that the Second Sister said the line "I am what you made me". Then Vader uses the same line in the show. Now, Vader gets his masked sliced twice in the same manner as Ahsoka did to him. HMMMMMMMM, starting to repeat things which removes the specialness about it. A little guttered, tbh.
  24. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    I've always struggled with this as well but I don't know if it's a Disney problem or an overall Star Wars problem that Disney has exacerbated? The quickest example that comes to my mind is the Clone Wars animated series. Whilst it's very good at fleshing out a lot of the wider universe and story for the Clone Wars, there was a loooooot of silly shit in that show.
  25. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    If Disney could just fix up some of the terrible writing then this series would have been awesome instead of just good. Last episode knocked it out of the park and didn't mess up to much in ANH. But some of the other episodes just had some god damn stupid stuff in it! In saying that it's probably still the best series overall Disney have done so far imo. Almost had a tear in my eye when Kenobi was telling Leia about her Parents. Fight scene was much better this time around even though still feel it still shouldn't have happened. Maybe that flashback kind of smooths it out a little but still sits uneasy with me. They fixed a few plot holes in this last episode too! Kenobi calling him Darth. Kind of backs up my justification that Kenobi was just being sarcastic in ANH when he calls him Darth and tidy's up that small plot hole. Also worked around Leia's message to Kenobi in ANH where it appears she doesn't know him by having him tell her know one must know they've met. Also liked Vader telling Kenobi that it was he that killed Anakin and not Kenobi. Again tidy's up Kenobi telling Luke that Vader killed Anakin in ANH and "the whole the truths we cling to" retcon in ROTJ. At least it shows they've taken some notice of the Orginals and trying to work into them.
  26. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    I very very much enjoyed that. Just great across the board.
  27. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    I'm pleasantly surprised how they wrapped up the season finale, I thought it would be a rushed mess but it was actually alright 😂
