@sparky_buzzsaw: They're putting them out regularly too. It's weird after years of 2 or 3 posts a year my inbox is getting flooded with updates. Not complaining though, I gave up on ever seeing this years ago and, like you say, it's kind of interesting.

Watched it for the first time last week. Yeah...I'm a big fan of Carpenter, and Kurt Russell, but without the aid of nostalgia goggles it's not a great movie. The pacing is awful.

Escape from LA is so campy that it's a lot more fun than the original. You just have to go in expecting that. If you're expecting it to be badass then you're going to be disappointed.

Microsoft's first party output has been weak since the back half of the 360/PS3 generation. They've been relying on the same few franchises to prop themselves up for years. They bought a load of promising studios and shut them down. Who knows if they have the man power to push out a load of new IPs to support the Scorpio, but if they don't then I can't see it being anything other than a dud.

Classic Game Room - One of the first video review shows on the internet. Mark has a great voice and sense of humour.

Consolevania - Two Scottish guys, from way back, they went on to make Videogaiden for the BBC, and write for Eurogamer and Rock Paper Shotgun, among other things. As much comedy and weird art film as video game show. These episodes are from years ago but they just got a Patreon funded to make more.

Super Derek RPGs - A bit of an antidote to the usual Youtube screaming. He's super chill, and pretty entertaining.

Also into Metal Jesus Rocks, Happy Console Gamer and Red Letter Media, but they've got their props here already.

Requiem For A Dream was pretty rough, but recently I watched Kotoko, which really fucked me up. It's a Japanese film about a mentally ill woman trying to look after her baby. There are shots in that film that made me feel like I wanted to throw up. There are other parts that made me laugh and cry. It's amazing, but I don't think I ever want to see it again.

@devil240z: It's more of a hipster douchebag crowd. I reckon Austin can raise the tone about 5000% though.

Looking forward to some quality Vice style headlines like this one:

Seriously though, all the best Austin! How will Vinny get through Bloodlines without you?

Pacific Rim was amazing. I can see the anime influence, but stripping out most of the hokey melodrama, teenage heroes, terrible female characters and J Rock meant it kept the good stuff about those shows.

John Boyega was pretty good in Star Wars, and great in Attack the Block, so that's good news right? No Del Toro is a bit worrying though I suppose.
