  1. OK, that Exorcist tee is pretty cool. Also, I love how they never have these ready in time to be shipped for the actual holidays. One year they announced Xmas tees and sweaters around the 20th of December, to be shipped in January
  2. North America and Japan prices are nuts. Europeans prices were decent. My Golden Circle tickets for Stockholm, Prague, and Paris were all around £90 each ($120). London was almost £100 for regular pit tickets which is a little more than some other bands but not that much more for London.
  3. Stephen King's IT (2017)

    Had a couple of free tickets so I saw it tonight and this was my exact feeling. I think RedLetterMedia got it right in saying that it falls back on jump scares accompanied by dramatic music over, and over, and over again: I liked the “Stand By Me” stuff, and the kid from Stranger Things was great, more than making up for the unlikeable lead kid. He’d normally be the kind of overly wisecracking character who I’d find incredibly annoying, but lines like: Ben Hanscom: Derry started as a beaver trapping camp. Richie Tozier: Still is! Am I right, boys? had me laughing out loud in the cinema. Fat kid and ginger girl were noteworthy, too. Im trying to think of the last good horror film I saw in the cinema. I remember being pleasantly surprised by the 2013 Evil Dead remake, and i liked Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell in 2007. My favourites will likely always be The Thing and The Shining, but I do need to check out It Follows at some point.
  4. Best setlist this tour, wish we got this in Europe!
  5. Blade Runner 2049

    At least it's doing well in the UK and Australia: http://deadline.com/2017/10/blade-runner-2049-it-movie-horror-record-despicable-me-3-kingsman-never-say-die-weekend-results-international-box-office-1202184382/ There are posters EVERYWHERE here in Sydney. Every bus stop, every advertising stand, it's the Blade Runner 2049 poster. Shame it's not a more artful poster but it seems to be getting the job done.
  6. Blade Runner 2049

    Roger Deakins piping in on how he thinks the film should be viewed: https://www.rogerdeakins.com/film-talk/blade-runner-2049-2d-or-3d/
  7. Blade Runner 2049

    RedLetterMedia review: They make a good point about Officer K doing a lot more actual detective work in 2049 than Deckard ever did in the original.
  8. Use Your Illusion 1 on Spotify

    Weird, they're all still here on Spotify in Australia. Good spot.
  9. Blade Runner 2049

    What the actual fuck Thinking about it, there weren't that many people at my Thursday night screening, either. I was sat next to a mum and her teenage son; he was constantly asking her whether stuff related to the original or not since he hadn't seen it. I'm surprised at the number of film fans who haven't seen Blade Runner. I wasn't even born when it came out but I always thought it was one of those films that people would see at some point in their lives.
  10. Blade Runner 2049

    Box office isn't looking great for this :/ Hopefully this doesn't restrict Villeneuve in any way on his Dune adaptation. I'm not the biggest fan of Dune (I gave up on the book after about 300 pages and have only seen the Lynch version once when the DVD came free with a copy of The Observer) but I'd love to see a talented director such as Villeneuve get to make (more) films in my favourite genre, science-fiction (though Dune is more "soft science-fiction", or "space fantasy").
  11. Blade Runner 2049

    In terms of score and sound, one thing I appreciated was the lack of it in some scenes. Scenes where there's no score, and you just have two characters talking to each other. All the drama comes from the actors/characters and direction, which is something rare in a big-budget film. I love my hyperemotional scores (like Interstellar), but it wouldn't have suited this film. Unfortunately that effect is ruined a little when you have people munching popcorn very loudly in your ear
  12. Blade Runner 2049

    The one track I might buy off iTunes: On a non-spoilery note, I liked the use of European actors who aren't too familiar to popular audiences; you don't get distracted by "actors" and can instead just accept the characters for who they are.
  13. Blade Runner 2049

    There's a few scenes here and there like that didn't feel like they fit the flow of the story. I also felt that Finally, didn't ? Still liked the film, but I wonder how it'll hold up for me on repeat viewings. The original Blade Runner is a film I didn't initially "get" but I grew to love it over time. One thing I really liked about 2049 was I thought it was weird that one of the focal points of the film was
  14. Blade Runner 2049

    In North America, IMAX is only showing it in 2D due to American consumer demand. Outside of America, IMAX shows it in 3D. Went to a regular 2D showing here in Sydney. Good film, probably not my favourite Villeneuve, but one of the better films of the year. Disappointed with the score, would have liked to hear what Johansson would have come up with. Wish Bowie had gotten to play Leto’s character like Villeneuve had planned
