    "Now Showing"

    Just booked to see it tonight. I've only seen it once and need to see it again after having read the book recently. Looking forward to it. Last night I went to see a re-screening of Clive Barker's Hellraiser. It's a film I've seen a dozen times, but never on the big screen. For a late 80's, low...

    "Now Showing"

    I'm looking forward to this. I was always confused by, but kind of liked the David Lynch film. I eventually got around to reading the book a couple of years ago. If I remember correctly, it sounds like what you're describing. The front end of the book is really heavy trying to world-build. Then...

    Apple or Android?

    I know what you're trying to say, but it just isn't true today, and hasn't been for a few years. The Samsung flagship phones easily equal or surpass the equivalent Apple models in terms of technology and quality. I don't like their bloatware, but their premium devices are superb. Prior Pixel...

    Apple or Android?

    Personally, I'm Android. Have been for ten years and will stay that way. I used to have an iPod Touch way back when. Whenever I use my work's iPhone, I can't get over the fact that it seems as though nothing has changed in the decade+ since I used it. Essentially, iOS took over from Nokia as...

    Biblical Coaster Names

    The unofficial name for the Grand National sides are Sodom and Gomorrah. Anyone who has ridden over a wheel will understand the concept of having a coaster train rammed up your backside...

    "Now Showing"

    OMG - I wrote a huge, long post the other day with lots of reviews, and it's gone. Not sure what I spooned up. I'll have to just do a quick summary. Shang-Chi @gavin is right - just read what he wrote. 3/5 The Courier Bumbledom Camelback almost plays Alan Turin in almost Bridge of Spies. 4/5...

    How do you like steak cooked?

    I did blue steaks for a few of us once, just to try. It wasn't anything special. I think you need to cook it a bit just to enhance the steaky flavour. It isn't blood. I prefer the steak to be warm right through, and it never feels "raw". It's softer though, and if you can work down from well...

    What is the worst ghost train you’ve ever ridden?

    I think this is an important point (which I think my mind skimmed across earlier). Surely, how bad it is considered should be proportional to the amount of money and effort spent on it? If DBGT offers little or no thrill or excitement than a track inside a trailer with a plastic skeleton - then...

    Ranking The MCU So Far

    I'm not going to reply about IM3, as you're clearly insane :P Initially, the Netflix Marvel series were meant to be canon. Pretty sure the first series of at least Daredevil, if not others, mention fallout from the films. Kingpin, for instance, suddenly has large swathes of New York to invest...

    What is the worst ghost train you’ve ever ridden?

    Does it even count? Surely you have to make just the tiniest bit of effort to make the list? :D That's like saying I'm the worst shot-putter at the Olympics because I never bothered to turn up :) I remember there was a dark ride of some kind at Camelot that was awful - but I can't remember if...

    Ranking The MCU So Far

    It's been a while. I should probably update this... 1. Captain America: Winter Soldier - I love the fact it was more a spy thriller than a superhero film 2. Guardians of the Galaxy - charming, light, fun and just really well directed. Piss poor villain though 3. Ant-Man - see above 4. Iron Man...

    Tails of tediousness 14/08/2021

    When Maxi-Minor_Furie was little (like 3 or something) - that was the only ride in the park he wanted to go on. I've done over a dozen laps of that bloody thing in a row. It is, without question, the worst. I've been to WMSP a fair few times, probably 10-15. I've had abysmal days (generally...

    Desktop PC tips for Planet Coaster?

    I did watch the videos. The park is lush, I'm shocked that Planet Coaster doesn't have either a remote camera control or built-in recording system like RCT3 did. So I can see why you're happy with a bump in FPS. However, I watched it windowed, I always do. So it's probably not much more than...

    Desktop PC tips for Planet Coaster?

    I actually understand the low frame rate, especially once the park is populated. However, I'd think about a couple of things. First - what monitor are you using? Is it HD (1920x1080), or 1440/4K? The 3060 card you have is a solid HD card, but will struggle at higher resolutions. Linked to the...

    Your Wacky Worm Count.

    It's a sad dream of mine for when I win the lottery to make the best Wacky Worm ever. Put it into the dark with all kinds of effects and things - more than just a Wacky Worm. As for my count - 1. I don't count clones, and wacky worms make me glad about this :) I've been on a fair few, but at...
