    Matrix 4

    That worries me as well. The first was a brilliant idea. If they are doing this because they have got a genuine script, then I am excited. If they are doing this because it's the latest fad of cashing on old hits (by remaking or adding a sequel) then that's worrying.

  6. To add to what @SirBalon has said, he was well behaved (up until Barca came along), humble, hardworking and will be liked by the fanbase. He has that Brazilian flair that will immediately endear him to the fans. He is not cocky (like Ronaldo) or a cunt (like Suarez). The key, however, is his confidence. It's probably shattered, after his failed move to Barca. Our progress after his departure probably must irk him, as well. He knows that he could have been part of that. If he gets his confidence back and is used wisely, then Bayern have got themselves a really good player.
  7. The cricket fan in me, who has gone through this phase of technology and its interpretation creating controversy with DRS, is amused looking at you all. On a serious note, the ball touched the arm and got directed to the man who scored the goal. Hence, correct decision was made.

    This is by far the best series on serial killers ever. Fincher sets up this season nicely with his dark and moody direction in the first three episodes. And then, the other directors finish the job equally well. This series is a lesson for other filmmakers. The dialogues are short and smart. None of the major moments are allowed to go OTT. They have hardly shown any graphic images, beyond the few peeks at the crime scene pictures. The background music is creepy and effective as fuck, even though you hardly hear it at most times. The acting is topnotch, especially of the serial killers. I have to applaud the casting directors and makeup artists. All the serial killers look exactly like their real life counterparts. They were all brilliant, though for me Kemper again stole the show, despite a small cameo. Even the side stories, and their effects on Holden, Tench and Dr. Wendy and their jobs, are portrayed so well. Brian's storyline is going to be really interesting, going forward. And I won't even complain if they continuing teasing us with the BTK plotline instead of going all in after him in the next season, if the rest of stuff continues to be this fucking brilliant.
  9. I think it's down to him wanting to play out the ball, a quality which he doesn't posses. Unlike Alisson or Ederson he isn't that good with his feet. Maybe the coach should tell him to do just the basics. Not try to be like Alisson.
  10. Really good result. To be fair to Adrian, he made important saves in each halves. Stupid error, but it didn't cost us.
  11. Yep, Fabinho especially looked completely drained. Won't also be surprised if Origi starts instead of one of the usual three.

    Last movie you watched?

    Watched Godzilla : King of Monsters. The only difference between this movie and C grade monster movies like sharkcroc or spidershark is the high budget special effects and good actors.

    Was finishing Sacred Games. Done with that, now going to watch this. Just looked over the reviews. Apparently, it's even better than the first season. So I am excited.

    Sacred Games

    Just finished watching the new season. They had talked about finishing the book in four seasons, but I guess Netflix wasn't keen on that. So they did it in two. I don't wanna go into details, before others watch it. But, yes, it was understandably rushed. Still, it was done well. On a side note I hope Netflix solved their subtitles problems. The second episode's subs were fucked up (I needed them for the Punjabi parts). On a side note, why was 'Gandu' which means asshole translated as faggot on all the instances? Also, hated the idea of Ghaywan directing Sartaj's parts. At times it felt like a student director had shot those scenes. Guess Motwane preferred to control the whole thing as an executive producer instead. Shame really, cause last season you really felt Sartaj's stress, pain and anger because of Motwane's good direction. Not really impressed, or surprised, by Varun Grover's (lead writer) obsession in pushing certain political points (his views). He can't help it, despite himself being lynched by the SJW mob not so long ago. We here have seen how selective his comedy-group is. Anyways, overall it was a good series - probably one of the best to come out of this country. And it gave us memorable characters. Even this season the likes of Jojo, RAW agent Pandey(played by the talented Amruta Subhash), Shahid Khan (thought Ranvir Shorey did good with his small part) and Guruji will be remembered.
  17. Very impressed by Mount. Over the course of the Chelsea slightly were the better side. But glad we won.
  18. Bring in Trent now. Stretch the game. He would be better at corners and freekicks. Almost everyone looks tired.

    Best/Favourite character from any TV Show ever

    Huge crush on the first. He made the show brilliant. There has been no one like him on television, though the man on whom he is based comes close second in Curb Your Enthusiasm.
  20. And Kante. Lad has made some smart runs from the midfield. As for us, the midfield looks weak as fuck. Need to take control.

    Breaking News - General Chat

    The most unsurprising news of the year. I reckon we will never know the names of all the scums he provided young girls to, apart from the few rumours.

    Badminton

    And a really likeable person. I first watched her in IPTL, when she wasn't yet the world number one player in the world, and she came across as such a nice person.

    Correct. Anyone of you can ask the next one.
