    I knew I recognised her from somewhere.

    Hereditary. Whilst nowhere near as embarrassingly bad as I found Mother (the other recently lauded horror), I don't think the laughter that greeted several moments or the end of the film were what the makers had in mind. I can't really understand the praise (I've seen it called this generations The Exorcist) it's received. The creepiest thing about it was the daughter, and that's just the way she looks as far as I can gather. If you're a horror fan, which I'm not, I can't imagine this will satisfy in terms of jumps or gore. And if you're not it doesn't produce in terms of plot. Disappointing.
  3. The Cricket Thread

    Really impressive batting performance yesterday. This is clearly not Australia's best side and I have no doubt that Smith and Warner will be welcomed back into the team once their suspensions are up along with the three fast bowlers when they are fit. But of course we are also missing two very important players in Stokes and Woakes and we shouldn't forget that we thrashed them in Australia when those players were available. It's also good to see Ali doing so well with the ball at the moment. I think if we are to win the world cup next year, him and Rashid will have to do well for us. I wonder whether the ICC will look to make any changes to the format of ODI's any time soon. There has been quite a bit of talk that it's no longer a fair contest between bat and ball on the back of this result/score. Jimmy Anderson was saying on TMS yesterday that he didn't think that there was anything on offer for the bowlers with them bowling good balls that are getting smashed because the pitch and ball is offering nothing. He also made the point that when he was a kid going to games he would come away remembering and talking about one great boundary/ball/catch but with there being so many boundaries everything just blurred into on. I think he's probably got a point and yesterday's game certainly was anything but a nail biter, but I can't see the ICC wanting to do much to bring scores down. Superficially people want to see the ball being hit for six or four as much as possible first and foremost and the authorities will want to do as much as possible to keep people coming through the gates.

    Spoilers man ffs I wasn't talking about the jibes at me by the way. I was talking about how there's so many people get wound up about spoilers these days. Most of what people complain about aren't spoilers at all. Every synopsis or trailer would be a spoiler the way some people go on.
  5. Film/moving picture show you most recently watched

    That's the premise of the whole film. Generally people whinging about spoilers is reaching ridiculous levels these days.
  6. The OFFICIAL Transfer Rumours Thread 2018 -2019

    Aye the argument for Rondon is that he could do better in a better team (an argument you could use for any player really) but we aren't really that. We're certainly not very likely to create a boat load of chances for him. He's certainly not a bad player but it just shows you're not going to get a great deal for our transfer record if we're spending on English based players.
  7. The Cricket Thread

    Well he's got us to being number one ODI team and I think his main remit was to try and win the world cup. So I can't see him being ditched as coach for the white ball teams. It's possible that a series defeat to India might force them to look at splitting the role between red and white ball teams which I think could be the way forward. I think it probably will happen come the end of his contract regardless.

    The wickets we threw away were appalling. Scotland did well and deserved it but far too often they didn't have to get our players out. What Hales was doing running Root out I'll never know and Ali was so stupid playing that shot after him and Plunkett had basically won the match in the previous over.
  9. Recommend me something to watch!

    I remember reading about that a while back. Looks mental.
  10. What are you listening to ?

    Really liking this.
  11. Recommend me something to watch!

    I got round to watching the first part of the Frankie Boyle world cup program last night as the second ep was showing. Really enjoyed it, I'll probably stick the second part on tonight.

    New Jurassic Park film. Didn't have anything massively wrong with it but I didn't really enjoy it much. It started pretty well on the island with the volcano erupting, but it lost a lot when it moved away from there.

    Probably should have had some sandpaper of our own yesterday. Absolutely pitiful getting beat off Scotland.
  14. Yes Gemmill...

    I can't imagine most of us would be much different in the same position like. The minute I'm outside Newcastle I'm on the drink. If I was doing what he was I'd most likely be a massive alcoholic.

    Big fan of his shows. It seemed he'd been big into drugs in his earlier days (weren't we all) so I wonder if he'd continued problems with them. RIP
