I've played all of them with the exception of the Fallout: Tactics because it looked shitty.

It's worth a look if you like X-COM type squad tactics games, but it's nowhere near as good.

I don't know whether to go see Transformers 4 or not. I know it's probably going to be shit but I need to see it for myself to find out.

I decided to watch Stargate: SG-1 because I'm a fan of Richard Dean Anderson.  I fell asleep about half-way through the pilot. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't convince James Spader to stay as Daniel Jackson, because James Spader plays a much more convincing absent-minded professor.

Anyone else a fan of this series?
I am.
The first season sucks.  It gets much better, trust me.

Also, I find Michael shanks to be better at the role.  Especially later on.  It jus takes a while for the show to figure out what it wants to do.
The last season sucks.(last two maybe). But the Arc of Truth is good. (End movie 1)

I watched it a bit more last night. Everything you're saying is consistent with what I've read about the series. Shanks is starting to grow on me a bit, but I still prefer Spader. It'll be interesting to watch Shanks transform Daniel into his own character instead of a poor imitation of Spader's performance.

Usually the ratings go down over time, but it's risen from 50% to 57%. That suggests it's shit enough to not bother watching since I usually don't bother with movies below 60, but I'm still undecided. I might work around paying for it. Can't believe it goes for 160 minutes though, what the fuck were they thinking?

Went to see Richard Wilson in a performance (public dress rehearsal) of Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape at the Crucible theatre last night. Aside from what I would call an over-accentuation of comedy during the silent opening, it was a damn fine performance. Wilson really communicates the isolation and misery of Krapp, but also offers up an almost sprightly counter-performance as the voice of his younger self, though tinged with a sense of denial that tells of the man he is to become. The direction and set design are very well done, it's in the round and the set is a closed-in room, amplified, on a very slowly rotating platform, the use of light and sound to convey things not said is very effective.

Just watched The Big Lebowski. It was strange. I don't know if I liked it.

Well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

It's a film for fans of their movies, a cult film.

I thought The Big Lebowski was a pretentious film. It tried too hard to be funny and seems like it was made solely so people would call it a cult film. It was trying to be weird and unique, but just ended up too try-hard and unfunny for my tastes.

They didn't make it to be a cult film, it just became a cult film. They made it purely as a Coen brothers movie, if that makes any sense.

It makes sense to me.

I love The Big Lebowski. His jellies crack me up every time because I had a pink pair as a child and they could pinch something awful.

I watched the first episode of Extant. It seemed pretty dull.
