Re: The Videogames Tab

In fairness, Wikipedia says it was originally planned for the Nintendo 64 but it ultimately ended up on GameCube.

I gave it one complete play-through - I didn't deliberately invoke sanity effects...

Do you think 1917 deserved Oscars Best Visual Effect over Endgame

Re: Do you think 1917 deserved Oscars Best Visual Effect over Endgame

Re: Oscars apart, which movie do you think made your year?

Assuming that "Oscars apart" means that anything that got nominated doesn't count, I think I'd give it to Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

Re: The Videogames Tab

I believe Eternal Darkness was on GameCube - at least, that's where I played it. I also liked it, though it definitely hews closer to the kind of survival horror shown in early Resident Evil games...

I can understand not liking it, but you know what else was nominated that year? Darkest Hour was so dry and British it made The King's Speech look like Spring Breakers.

Re: Is The Tuxedo (2002), so bad that it's good?

As for Basic Instinct - maybe?...
