Re: I Just Watched (Films)

Jungle Cruise (Disney+) This started really well. I really enjoyed the first half. The second half is awful. What was a fun romp in the spirit of Indiana Jones, it became more and more Pirates of the Carribean but not in the good sense. CGI took over and the story became ridiculous. I can see it ag...

Re: UHD/HDR must haves

I watched Jungle Cruise on Disney+ on supposedly "4K". It was 1080p at best.

4K streaming is shite. Its false advertising.

What a mess. Didn't fancy it after seeing the trailers and not liking the character models, but this has been even worse than I thought it'd be.
look on the bright side - you saved £50

I downloaded GTA 3 (thank god I bought the original way back when) and will give it a spin

Re: GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition

the development house, Grove Street Games, make mobile games!

Rockstar wanted to save money and believed its GTA - it will sell whatever shite we put out. The classic Star Wars method of creativity.

Re: UHD/HDR must haves

I know what you guys mean, I set my budget to £50-£60 per month. I am pacing myself and only picking up my favourite movies. Its shelf space I am more concerned about - might have to start giving more books (which I will not re-read) to charity.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLxg07OR0lo&ab_channel=RGR29 The rain was aweful. Overall it looks fine. Tbh it have been amazing if they completely remastered it similar to Mafia.
