Odd that it says 'One to two players' instead of 'One or two players'

Checked my copy of the game and it's as I thought, you take turns in playing.  :)

I thought it was a real stinker!

Underdeveloped ideas and a pretty feeble plot.
Hope next weeks is better!
Capaldi was his usual dependable self, but the scripts need to dramatically improve (in more ways than one).

The flaws are certainly more apparent on subsequent viewings.

It's puzzling that Edward's appears to struggles with creating convincing characters that interact naturally and aren't mearly cyphers who spout exposition

I found Cassian Andor, Chirrut Îmwe, K-2SO, Baze Malbus, Orson Krennic, Galen Erso no less convincing as characters than most of those that are simply drawn in the OT. Rogue One has story problems but most of its characters function perfectly fine for the type of men-on-a-mission film it is.

To give Rogue One its dues, the dialogue is Mamet-esque compared to the prequel's piffle!

Also, I wish the otherwise fine Felicity Jones didn't appear to be chewing on a wasp every time she was called upon to show emotion.

It's not a bad film and its somewhat tragically bleak tone is actually one of its strengths, but that script could of done with a few more drafts before it was shot, that's for sure.

As Steve said, 4K 3D was never a standard and with major manufacturers like LG pulling out of 3D compatible tech market , it's doubtful how long it will last as an option.

The Wicker Man

At times colossally camp - absurdly hokey - utterly magnetic. It's a gloriously insane tale of pagan ritual and the delusion of faith. The late Woodward and Lee are spectacular. The whole thing vibrates with a grim energy and all the soft porn and 70's folk pop musical numbers fall away with that iconic, enthralling, mind-destroying finale.

It's certainly unique and is easily my favourite 'folk horror' movie-if there even is any other to compare it too!

Regardless, The Wicker Man is an absolute masterpiece and in a class of its own!

Robocop (2014).Not as terrible as I expected,but its a generic/mediocre action movie.I got to say,Samuel L Jackson does steal the show.

Really?

It was far worse than I expected and I expected it to be really bad!  :o

Isn't that a scene from the movie V For Vendetta?

If so, highly apt!

Having missed the last two parter and the two subsequent specialss, I have no idea who Nardole is (other than he appeared in the last special?) or what the vault and out of order TARDIS/University Lecturer for 50 years set up is about, if indeed it had even been mentioned before?

The University / vault set-up is all new: presumably this season's arc.

It's where the Doctor keeps his Slithern porn collection!!!!  :o

Rogue One and The Force Awakens both have their flaws and merits.

For me, of the two films, The Force Awakens felt the more Star Warsy-maybe due to the somewhat recycled plot and the returning cast members I also felt it had a more emotional heft than Rogue One.

Still, it's all very objective obviously.

Jock has been teasing some rather sexy Nemesis The Warlock art on his Twitter account, which rumour has it, is for the Arrow release here in the U.K.  :)
