One of the things I've learned the hard way is that things you might cook happily for four people can become an unholy nightmare if you try to prepare them for a larger number of people. Many things…

I think that if a more lethal strain arises, it doesn't get an advantage from killing its hosts quickly. But, if it tends to be lethal in the later stages, after people have had the typical period to…

The temperature control sounds good. It doesn't take much to cause me not to sleep, and, such summer as we have, I sometimes get really uncomfortable. I have resorted to the hammock in the garden.

I think there's a pretty strong view that it will become endemic, and we'll simply have to learn to live with it. I think it will become ever clearer that vaccination is the only way to get on top of…

You did see the bit where I said a space opera TES game could be great? I'm simply saying that in terms of what they've shown so far, I don't see enough detail to get particularly hyped. Seems like…

Not much reason for someone to be hyped at this point, as far as I can see. I'm on board with the idea that a space opera TES game could be great, but, in terms of what we've been given, there's…

It's kind of like the early days - the more powerful PCs you wanted for gaming were similar sorts of prices, and that's in old money.

Just moved the Lost chat here from the movie thread.

I remember being quite engaged by the first season, but then into the second series it seemed very clear to me they were making it up as they…

Yeah, I enjoyed that one, and I often mention Pixar and some other animation studios when I get accused of slating too many contemporary movies. I think many of their films are imaginative, witty,…

I didn't even clock her in that. I've blocked most of that out, with only a dim memory of Rufus Sewell chewing the scenery.

It has its flaws, but overall I was really engaged, and the three actresses that carry it are just great. It's one of those films where I think if it had succeeded a step further, it would be a…

That's a good start. I thought Train to Busan was excellent, and I don't really like zombie movies much.

I really liked Last Night in Soho. It's beautifully shot, and I think Thomasin McKenzie's performance will really launch her career.

It's also all shot in the real locations, even the real pubs,…

Anyone tried Hellbound? I read it's the latest Korean hit. It seems like Korea is having an era something like the 80s. A really lively pop culture that the whole world seems to connect with.

Ah, fair enough. I'd be looking at it mainly as a gaming display. I've got an old projector that I attached to the ceiling, and a pull-down screen. Even though the picture is not as good as modern…

What do you reckon of it? I'd heard QLEDs can produce a very nice picture, but aren't so great for gaming, as the response time and their lighting tech produces ghosting.

Yes, I remember thinking at the time that I'd enjoyed it, but there was a bit of a sense of a missed opportunity to be something really special. I get that from a few films, here and there.

Yeah, I enjoyed that one. I see it as kind of a mindfreak, rather than something that makes coherent sense. I certainly found it engaging and curious enough to sit through.
