Cinematography looks really good from the trailer.

Kids these days. 

I reckon I could probably manage 2 hours of subtitles but there are an awful lot of movies on my haven't got around to yet so it won't be anywhere near the top.
It does occur to me to wonder how late they have to make the decision and is it a reaction to the flack over the 100% Caucasian list of nominees.

Interesting it's set up to de frag weekly but says last time was 15 days ago.
Just done it anyway so I'll see if that alters anything.

Deleting files on Windows 10

Just clearing out some rubbish on Windows 10 ie: pics downloaded just to post on social media.
As small as just 6kb but none going as far as 100KB and even when deleting individually I'm getting 'Discovering items' and a graph style progress bar while it chews on it for a minute or two before deleting.
Not due to a full recycle bin as I've emptied it any ideas why or how to avoid it.

"Horror movies can be set in space :) wasn't there a hellraiser in space, and another film, I forget it's name, that was pretty much hellraiser in space?"

Haven't seen Hellraiser as overall I'm not much of a horror fan, there's always something else I'd rather catch up on, but Event Horizon pretty much fills any horror definition I could think of.

Never seen Saw as once sawn, can't be unseen.

I like Chris Rock but can't imagine this would be a bunch of chuckles.

Prompts maybe a whole new thread on what actually qualifies as horror.
Is the old Hammer stuff still horror?
Do Alien and The Thing qualify as sci fi, horror or both?

Hallo. 
Boomer representative here.

What's replaced incandescent bulbs lasts nowhere near what it states on the box and I seem to spend just as much on replacements as before.

Seems to be morphing into Doctor Who, How, What, Why, When, Where and NO.

Still enjoying it but I thought Ep 2 was a little more predictable than Ep 1 if anything.

EDIT: I'm finding a Romulan with an Irish accent just slightly annoying.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

I think we can put Burnley down to getting away with one.
We could have won it but on balance I don't think we could have any complaints if we lost.
Quite surprised to see a good few instances of handshakes and respect between both teams given Dyche's recent 'kick'em up in the air' philosophy.

Arteta seems to have improved the defence but now we can't score, which with Auba, Laca and now Martinelli and Pepe is a bit ridiculous.

"Do you rate him? Odd you'd let him go if he was really good, your goal difference is worse than ours!"

Apparently he only had a few months left on his contract so if he wasn't going to resign they'll be saving his salary to pay the spurs reject they've bough in for that position.
Whether he's any good I'll leave to admars and Mikel's judgement

A lot more than a minute with loads of repetition all welcome.

I haven't looked but has the Whovian fan base exploded yet, given the initial reaction to Ms Whittaker?

RE: [VIDEO] Captain Picard returns

Ep 1 held me from start to finish.
Yes some of it may have been predictable but given the premise and the depth of knowledge of the fan base I don't really have a problem with that in a first episode.
Thought it was well paced and I'm definitely on board for the series.

"A quick google sees he's not the usual centre back we sign, as in an 18 or 31 year old. :o"

Apparently we can't rustle up 9 million Euros.
How much is Stan's new stadium for his NFL team costing again? 

And now for something completely different (In my best Terry Jones)

Well that was well worth the night off to watch.
Speed, attitude, one touch passing spinning them round like tops.
A couple of goals that felt very much like the Arsenal of old. Or old enough to be before Saka and Nketiah were born.
Guendouzi winding up the opposition a treat, enough to get them booing him. Mustafi pinging some good long diagonal passes and more importantly not Mustafiing.
I could go through the team but there wasn't really a bad performance from anyone tonight.

'Mikel that first goal was twenty two passes'

'If we can score in two it is better'

Love that man.

Now we need to beat Burnley for which Auba's back. Then a two week winter break.
A winter break FFS.
How continental.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

Only time will tell but I'm far more optimistic about Arteta than Emery.
Emery was very much an 'Ok? I'll see how he goes'

You can already see improvements. The players all seem to be far more on board with him and he's got the communication between them himself and the fans pretty well balanced. He's managing to get across what he wants from them very clearly
All of his interaction with the media seems honest, well balanced and with a pleasing absence of BS.
My only worry is that those above him are less able and have less ambition than him. If that's the case we could be watching him manage another club to cups and glory while we continue to wallow mid table in just a couple of years.
