RE: [VIDEO] Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F

Loved it.
Is Eddie in that good nick or was it in the contract they had to de-age him?
I'm a sucker for all the call backs and references as well.

A little bit on the fence about Bobby but he worked out in the end.

Kevin Bacon really good as Mr nasty.
Although not a comedy he put me in mind of Robert Vaughan in Bullitt

I think that's a bit of
'We know they wont go for it but it makes us look better if we suggest it'

I do think Biden stepping back has thrown a real spanner in their works.
Trump still can't shut his gob about Biden.

(Yes I know I said I was stepping back from Yankee Trumpy politics but this has hooked me back)

Great.
Half a story and left unresolved.
Wish I'd known that before I started watching

RE: [VIDEO] Star Wars: The Acolyte

Have to say the second in charge of the Jedi landing party at the end (blond lad with all the dialogue) was about as Jedi as an assistant librarian.

Overall I don't really think the show knew what it wanted to be, even looked to be a bit PG Game of Thrones at one point.

I'll probably watch season two if it gets made but it's not exactly left me champing at the bit.

Not entirely sure how I feel about the whole first season.
Obviously setting up for a second series.

RE: Arsenal 24/25 season

We have to hope others won't be fully ready with players still not back or fully recovered from Euros or Copa.

Arsenal 24/25 season



Realised we haven't started a new season thread yet.
No doubt some of these will already have been moved once the broadcasters see more money to be made (sod the fans)

"What is this "or" of which you speak?"

For those of us who can't afford a PC 'and' a laptop.

I have a Windows 10 PC which is aging, as is the monitor, and a very old tablet which is even more aged.
Would love to replace both and have a decent laptop so if you'll just post up tomorrows winning lottery numbers...

So who replaces him.
Please not Lampard we'd struggle to qualify for the World cup under him.

RE: Laptop or desktop

Seems to raise another question of normal size tower pc vs mini pc.
Just ease of access for upgrade or repair?

Laptop or desktop

Just interested in any views on this.

Mostly use a PC in a small home office/man cupboard.
It's getting old and needs replacing but I'm wondering whether to just get a new PC and monitor or get a laptop and run a largeish monitor from it.

Practical?
Or stick to a PC.

RE: The Euros

The wait continues.

Noticeable we didn't start playing until Kane was subbed off.

They want Southgate to stay until the world cup.
If he does we'll probably turn up with Kane still in the team and Maguire drafted back in.

You can ask me now.

Without even having looked I guarantee this will be a
'Democrat plot'
'Proof God wants him as president'
and will fuel his campaign

Personally I'm avoiding news and socials on the subject as far as possible.
In fact I've dialled back my whole interest in the presidential race as America seems to be running full tilt into a dictatorship.
In the increasingly unlikely event Biden wins I may take more of a look in 2025.

RE: How many browsers do you use?

Went FTTP over two years ago with BT, the only option at the time.

Not cheap but not having to phone Sky every month because the connection was cr*p is priceless.

"Spain was still playing as if they had a game to win."

In the unlikely event that we go 2.1 ahead vs Netherlands, much less Spain, can you see Southgate telling/letting us push past the halfway line.

We may reach the final, 50/50 I reckon, but Spain will do us or the Dutch in the final.

Delighted to be proved wrong but if I am it won't be because of a dazzling display in the final.

RE: [VIDEO] Gladiator II

Agreed the music is lousy.
Trailer seems to major on Denzel who I'd watch in anything.
Mescal seems to be a lot more 'Sparta!' than Russel Crowe.
Not enough Pascal to form a definite impression but I do like the guy.

All in all I'll watch it but I won't be rushing to the cinema and will probably wait till it streams.
