  1. In a game as massive as this how can you expect there NOT to be some problems? Can you even imagine how insanely complex that code is? Skyrim is still GOTY by a long shot for me. Chill out, grab a beer and wait for them to fix it.

    The fact that his name is given as nothing more than "Driver" kinda hints that there wouldn't be much character development for him. They kept him shallow and mysterious for a reason. I liked it, although the "heart-pounding, blood pumping action" that it was marketed around was ultimately disappointing, which it wouldn't have been had it not been hyped so much. It was more subtle than that. A thinking man's action film - refreshing to the genre.
  3. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - 8/10 Loved Gary Oldman in this, he and Benedict Cumberbatch deserve Oscar nods for sure. Great movie.
  4. I'd recommend Let the Right One In, a really creepy, awesome horror fantasy flick out of Sweden. It's pretty violent but has a great plot too, just a great film all round. Also a lot of people love Oldboy, from South Korea. I personally don't see what's so great about it but it's definitely worth checking out.
  5. Shazam! #2 (Hate to rub it in) http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=302820 For my thoughts, check those threads although the avatar may speak for itself.
  6. I am too and am veritably shitting myself, as it were. Wish I could worry about whether or not to take my Xbox with me.

  8. Not everyone likes any type of film.
  9. Nailed it. I could not give less of a damn about talent if you're going to act like she did. Can't say I care about her but it's vile that more buzz seems to be surrounding this than the tragedy in Norway. Those people were victims, innocent. Her death was 100% her own doing.
  10. It's brilliant. £4.99 a month for unlimited streaming - no downloads.
  11. I thought it was pretty great, definitely the best in the series.
  12. I can't wait to see this. I've seen reviews at both ends of the spectrum - either it's completely shit or the best thing ever. I love movies that are potentially polarizing because you're taking a risk - either it turns out crap, which sucks, or it's mind-blowing.
  13. Not silly enough considering the premise. Wasn't a fan.
  14. Oldboy is a good watch but overrated. I've got nothing against Spike Lee as a director, but this will be a rental at best for me when it eventually does come out.
  15. There's even a debate about this? HP.
  16. I don't think the story is confusing. If you focus, it's actually remarkably easy to piece together the chronology of the movie. I've seen other films told in a non-linear fashion that are much harder to follow even stone cold sober and giving it your complete attention. That said, I do love Pulp Fiction. Travolta and Jackson are both awesome beyond compare. I also love Tarantino's cameo as Jimmy. The dialogue, humor and action come together to make one fantastic piece of entertainment.
  17. Probably The Breakfast Club or Beetlejuice. I fucking HATE The Goonies.
  18. Need to get myself one for the summer. Need to save up some cash for Uni. Although, despite myself it will probably end up going on games, DVDs and booze.
  19. I agree with you both for the most part, but have you seen Stranger Than Fiction? He's actually rather good in that.
  20. 5. Leon (1994) 4. Juno (2007) 3. Black Swan (2010) 2. American Beauty (1999) 1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) HMs: Lost In Translation; Return of the King; Amelie; Super; The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford; 500 Days of Summer.
  21. Never have fully understood why the drinking age in the US is so high, TBH. Bet you're finding ways around it though eh? :p

  22. Haha. Yeah, officially. ;)



  23. Just ordered Black Swan and The Social Network on DVD.

    At the Toronto Film Festival, which it where they sold the movie. The wide US release date was April 1st, and the DVD/Blu-ray is scheduled for release on August 9th.
