@csl316: I'm moving to Chicago next year from London for a few months for university work. Got any recommendations about where to live? I think I've built it up in my mind as murder central but I know of course that isn't true.

Born and raised in London, it never crossed my mind until I went to uni how much London is built up as this monolith by lots of people who are from other places. I personally love big cities, they feel like little countries in their own right, all have distinct personalities.

It's the best one by a long way. And I love all of them. Gears 4 may be my jumping on point for the Xbox One.

Horde mode 2.0 is the best waved multiplayer in any game ever it's incredible.

I honestly thought it was pretty good. But that's more to do with me than it being a great film. I tend to like Zach Snyder's batshit direction.

  • The good for me was -
  • Batman straight up murdering people was weird and awesome -
  • I really really like this Superman and how they are figuring out how he's going to fit in the world -
  • Wonder Woman was really awesome, I've never seen much of her outside of vaguely knowing who she is but I really enjoyed her parts in the movie, was surprised how pumped I was seeing all of them line up to fight Doomsday -
  • I thought Eisenberg was pretty funny actually, apart from that last scene of him in the jail he was quite enjoyable for me.
  • Thought Laurence Fishburne as Perry White was pretty funny

The bad -

  • The showing of the Justice League seemed so forced and took you out of the movie just as shit had hit the fan -
  • I hate it whenever anyone does a "death of X" in any film because we all know they're just going to turn back up in a later movie, in this one I atleast thought they would wait to resurrect him in another film but no. It takes all threat out of any scenario because Superman can just turn up again later.

Jaws and Jurassic Park for me. Both those films condensed their respective books down to their core and are bloody fantastic for it. Jaws in particular.

Also The Lord of the Rings. Amazing work they did with those films. And amazing how they did the exact opposite with the Hobbit movies.

I still do but I tend to skip the ads now. When they first started they were hilarious but now I'm kind of over it. Though obviously they are way better than other sites ads

Skyrim vs Saints Row will always be infuriating to me.

I have to say this year felt more at each other than in years past, there was one moment where a bunch of people of talking over each other and Jeff just says "fucking listen to me!" and you just hear Alex quietly say "hey...". That was pretty uncomfortable

She literally does nothing in the movie apart from walking around.

Don't forget that she is the one who shuts down the shields at Starkiller Base, thereby allowing the Resistance to destroy it easier than the Death Star.

Is it telling that I completely forgot her doing that? I assumed she was gunna be some badass but she doesn't put up any sort of conflict when they go to try and capture her.
