RE: [VIDEO] Jungle Cruise

Yep, enjoyed this, good family fun - and Whitehall was very good too.

Saw this a good few months back, thought it was poor.
Sorry, not as long a review.

Just finished it.
Truly one of the best things I've seen in a good while.  Hilarious, sad, happy - loved it.

Yeah, he was a great singer and a really great bass player too.

RE: Black Widow

I smiled a few times in this, no more I think.
Thor: Ragnarok was miles ahead of this in everything, especially humour. There was certainly no Jeff Goldblum in this :-)
The way they fought and tried to kill each other when they met was weird, and the Ray Winston cockney Russian accent was unreal.
Has this been well received generally? I felt it added pretty much zero to the Marvel universe story.

RE: Black Widow

Anyone seen it?
Rather disappointing for me.  5/10.
Some of the most obvious green screen I've seen in a Marvel film too - including the early ones!

"and has that really been filled by something as large as the Switch?"
...I suppose, given the Switch has been the best selling console for a long time (not that many people realise that), the answer must be a yes?
I have a Switch and have played it handheld less than half a dozen times I'd say, so to only think about the handheld side of things may be to miss some of the point maybe?

Indeed.  To allow things to run rife for over two months so more people can be jabbed to then ask them to prove it.

RE: Clarkson's farm

I wrote the 'not being recommissioned'comment because I read in Monday or Tuesday that there wasn't going to be one. Turns out it was a Clarkson response and it's not true, there could well be one.
Which is great, I watched two episodes yesterday and thought they were brilliant. Gerald the wall builder in particular had me in tears but Caleb is a star as mentioned.

Well I believe it but completely agree, the two environments are totally different. He could have scored every one and still shouldn't have been near the first five.

RE: [VIDEO] Euros 2021 (Men's)

As good as he got most decision this tourno, he got pretty much everything wrong tonight. Early goalnand the game was there for the taking.
So negative from then with subs far too late. Kane was an embarrassment tonight.

RE: Dances with Wolves 4k uhd

What is it with sound on 4K you notice more compared to Blu Ray?  I'm amazed there would be any difference - especially to a human ear.

RE: I thought car insurance was supposed to be cheaper this year?

We were with Privilege and the renewal was just over £210, I think about a fiver or so different to last year.
Looked online and there were lots around £160.
Spoke with Privilege who said the price they give is the lowest they can do and wouldn't budge.
Went with Darwin in the end (never heard of them but seemed well regarded on Truspilot etc) for £160.
Strangely, got a letter yesterday from Privilege saying as I didn't us my car much last year they're sending me a cheque for £20.

RE: Dances with Wolves 4k uhd

I think HDR makes a big difference but I don't think it's easy at all (or possible mostly..) to tell the difference between 1080P BD and 4K UHD if there is no HDR.

Other than a brief spell, England were excellent against Denmark and totally deserved the win.  Italy were outplayed for the majority of their semi so not sure of the point tbh?Quote:
Pete-MK says...
"We won the semi via an own-goal and a penalty - luck more than anything."
The own goal was because of Sterling's position, it was either going to be an own goal or a Sterling goal.  There was nothing lucky about it.
The penalty was a soft one but a result of superb skill and determination too.

"if you're watching the final, where will you watch it, and on what channel?"
So, according to the Telegraph.....
"So what’s the best way to consume the final? This feels like a night for urgency, so it’s got to be ITV from 6.30pm. But like Gareth Southgate, we shouldn’t be afraid to change approach to suit the occasion.

The official verdict is this: ITV for the build-up, half time, and afterwards, BBC for the first and second halves. This gets you maximum Neville, Wright, Keane and Hayes but the pleasant company of Mowbray for the game."

Doesn't seem a bad shout.

RE: [VIDEO] Euros 2021 (Men's)

I think generally there's no comparison, the Beeb's cover is head and shoulders above ITV's.  But it is so entertaining to watch Keane (his Neil Diamond gig argument was hilarious) - and Wright is always honest and passionate.  Not enough to miss a second of BBC's coverage though.
And their montages are something special too.

RE: [VIDEO] Euros 2021 (Men's)

It was a very, very soft penalty yes. To pick that out compared to the incessant gamesmanship/cheating from the Italians - well, whatever I'm more than over it.

RE: [VIDEO] Euros 2021 (Men's)

Yeah, too stressful that.
It all worked well in the end and Southgate has the courage of his convictions more than most but taking Grealish off for Trippier invited so much pressure when we had totally dominated the first half of extra time.

RE: Euros 2021 (Men's)

It was a great game last night.  Glad Spain scored when they did as it stopped the Italians getting up to their usual housery.  Thought they were probably the better side overall, certainly far and away their best performance in the tournament so far.  Some poor pens though.
Last night's ref was especially good, but yeah, they've pretty much all been top notch and VAR you generally wouldn't know it was there, its implementation has been so good.
Can't wait for tonight.

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

Meanwhile, because a child has tested positive in my wife's class they now have all of that year bar two off self-isolating.
That she is double vaccinated and has now had negative LFT and PCR tests means nothing and she and the rest have to stay off until next Friday inc.
Logic behind that? The whole self-isolation system is from a time we didn't even have a vaccine program but it still hasn't changed.
Boris says we need to be patient.
Meanwhile hundreds of thousands of children are still missing out on their education - the vast majority of which are doing so pointlessly.

RE: [VIDEO] Jolt

Well half the population are women yeah.  Half aren't the 'strong woman, femininity is bad' (could have added 'I hate men' too  ) woman though and there just seems to be a lot of them currently.  I totally get there's a lot of catching up to do and feel they seem to be trying their best to do it.  Ain't for me much (just like similar ones with roles reversed) but take your point - just my opinion.
