i've heard it was a bit of a missed opportunity so i'm not sure if its still worth the watch
it was good, the documentary is really well filmed and put together

fascinating how seriously the pro gamers and fans take it. The top teams are treated like celebrities in Asia.

definitely worth a watch if you even have more than a passing interest in gaming
i will check it out then, steam have it available to view for free too

Friend of mine is into his online gaming in a big way, but he was telling me that there was some competition there recently, and the prize pot for the winner (or winners, not sure how many ways it would be split) was about $9.5 million.

Just to put that into context, The Open Championship is starting this week. The total prize pot for that is $6.5million.

There's a fella driving in a series two tiers below F1 who got his first race seat as a prize for winning a Gran Turismo competition.

It was so so bad. And it just ended.
I at least thought he'd get his pic on the wall or it would be revealed that Rogen was on the wall or something.
So bad. So so bad. The only bit I liked was at the start:
The run-down through history starring The Lonely Island / Workaholics / Nick Miller.
Apart from that what a piece of shit. Also, I can't believe I spoilered Bad Neighbours.

I kept waiting for it to get good, or even have some sort of plot for the 3rd act.
Maybe I just expected too much cos the trailer made it seem a hell of a lot funnier.

Went to the cinema last night when the world cup was on, don't think I've seen the cinema so quiet before. Went to see how to train your dragon 2, was ok, not as good as the first one

Under The Skin

Mehhh. Strangely compelling, but it would have made a far better sub 5 minute music video rather than an hour and a half!!! Scarlett Johansson gets nekkid, or perhaps her body double does. Scarlett makes most things watchable, including this, but other than her, very very hard to recommend.

In grand budapest hotel one thing has me confused....
when Jopling strangles Serge at the monastery and the lads see him...why does he run out the door away from them, isn't he trying to kill them?
I watched Romy & Michelles high school reunion yesterday, I remember I didn't find it funny when I saw it years ago but all my friends loved it, so I tried again....still not that funny :(

I did think something was amiss at that moment but the film moves so fast I forgot all about it. I guess he didn't want to waste any time, wanted to get back straight away to find the letter in the picture no? It would have been too messy to try to kill off the other 2.

i mentioned earlier that i had very high expectations and the movie delivered

it will probably sneak ahead of under the skin as my new favourite movie of the year
