  1. Cheers for the suggestions. Any guidance is always appreciated.
  2. I know things thread-wise are kept pretty neat and tidy here, so do delete if needed. I've only ever fully watched the 1991 G1 Climax, whilst dipping into bits of the other ones. However, a lot of coverage of the tournament are unsurprisingly modern focused, so it can be quite hard to work out what tournaments are worth watching from a match quality or a historical viewpoint. I feel like there are a lot of very knowledgeable people who might be able to suggest to me some of the best tournaments over the course of the past 30+ years of the event. I know 2003 is often lauded as a particularly good one and some of the more modern ones are admittedly generally good, but any specific recommendations would be really helpful. Thanks all.
  3. Perhaps a bit of a random question, but how do you keep track of films you want to watch? That could be either in terms of upcoming films, or even just in terms of films you come across and want to watch eventually. In particular at the moment, I'm seeing films come up on Metacritic with high scores from the Cannes Film Festival, but I feel that I'm largely going to 'forget' about them as they come from the festival circuit into cinemas/streaming outside of the odd one here or there. That is what has sparked this question.
  4. As a Fulham fan...yeah, that was not fun.
  5. I've now had responses from at least 5 people between here and big movie fan friends I asked...and only one film has been mentioned by multiple people. Gonna be an expensive time.
  6. I haven't got around to watching them, but I do already own a Melville box-set. EDIT: Sorry for double post - assumed the posts would merge, but clearly not.
  7. I'm open to most things tbf. I was initially going to pick some of the stuff up from the Sight and Sound top 100. Trying to think of the films I've watched so far this year - 'The Earrings of Madame de...' was one; I tend to like an international film or two and am trying to check out some more classic options. I like Wes Anderson, but that can largely be ignored as I probably wouldn't buy them.
  8. https://hmv.com/store/film-tv/criterion-offers I only own 12 Angry Men out of any of these. What do people recommend as some of the best options here? (I know some of the actual price drops are quite small, but ah well).
  9. I'm sure I've heard people talking about Gene Wolfe in the past - worth checking out?
  10. The interfering with play rule was all about stopping an offside from a player who is twenty yards from play leading to a disallowed goal, which makes a load of sense. However, when the ball is passed to you, you almost stumble over it and your team mate almost collides with you to kick the ball, that has to be an offside. Defenders are moving to deal with you, goalies have you in their sight, all that type of stuff.
  11. Why don't they let plays like that play out? Surely if he was down by contact, it'll get picked up on review or challenge?
  12. It's almost a bit overwhelming. Still only a couple of hours in, but as there are so many different mechanics, just trying to get my head around it. However, the room by room combat and puzzling is still as fun as ever.
  13. I'm really happy to see that it dropped much earlier than I was expecting. Another game to add to the increasing number of new purchases, but I feel like this will definitely be getting a fair bit of my game playing time.
  14. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00MK376UM/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0 A Man's World: The Double Life of Emile Griffith by Donald McRae is only 99p for the month. A great book.
  15. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/africa/61737030 I'd seen the video from this before hearing the updated news story. Really horrible.
