Apparently 'Gasman' did the Speccy 'fake' games in that Bandersnatch episode. Was hoping it was going to be one of the current homebrew guys we know. Bet he was excited as hell to work on those (and must have been so difficult keeping it a secret).

I didnt bother checking out tons of final scenes etc, did a few when i watched it. Great episode though, hadnt really watched Black Mirror before but i'll give it a go for sure now. Sounds interesting as anything

Hangman on Netflix - good thriller that reminded me a bit of Seven. Very good cast too including Karl Urban, Brittany Snow and Al Pacino.

You can get the Nohzdyve game from here, along with information on numerous other "Tuckersoft" releases:

https://tuckersoft.net/ealing20541/nohzdyve/

Also, one of the endings plays a snippet of code that you can load onto an emulator - or presumably a real Spectrum if you're keen enough - that'll display a QR code that links to that site. Matt "gasman" Wescott also wrote that.

I believe the rest of the games shown only existed as mockups, but they did a good job with the replicating the look, right down to the palette, colour clash and the authentic Spectrum error messages.

Ralph wrecks the internet

I want the past hour and a half back
The only bit that was funny was the bit that was seen in the trailer

From Paris With Love. Mindless but surprisingly competant actioner with a bit Training Day about it, starring John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys-Meyer. Travolta is actually quite good fun in it.

Hangover 3. Weird as thought was a comedy series and was more like a dark heist thriller. Probably should have watched 1 and 2 first.

Home - great animated movie with Jim Parsons (Sheldon from Big Bang Theory) playing a mistake-prone alien who "invades" Earth with his species (the Boov) but ends up helping a humans who lost their mother. Sweet and charming.

They Will Not Grow Old - Peter Jackson's superb and moving film of World War I, featuring the voices of soldiers who fought and amazing restored footage. It's no big spoiler to say that after about half an hour the footage turns from black & white to carefully restored and coloured footage, which has a huge impact.

the revenant - awesome and magnificent cinematography
alexander and the terrible horrible, not good very bad day - nice and non stuffy
the favourite - beguiling and draws you in, not an out and out comedy and it has a VERY dark streak running through it, and if you work it out ..... :shock:

I watched Ralph Breaks the Internet and Bumblebee at the cinema this weekend.

The sequel to Wreck It Ralph certainly didn't disappoint, it was extremely funny throughout. Bumblebee was pretty enjoyable too although nothing that special.
