  1. Oh man I watched 30 mins of foundation ep 1 and had to shut down that bore fest off. Looks gorgeous but boring as hell. What is this? sci-fi pride & prejudice? I was really looking forward to this one - but completely unfamiliar with the source material - oh well.
  2. Yeah same here, but with the 3 year old XS Max. The battery is still holding a days charge. I hope it lasts another year.
  3. I ordered the 13 Pro Max for my wife. I'll maybe hold on another year. We have had the XS Max for 3 years now. Her screen is all shattered so she really wanted a new phone. Mine is broken only in the back when I fell from the mountain bike.
  4. Ah, I see. Maybe I'll checkout the included bluray and compare. Too bad if its caused by the new mix.
  5. Do you guys find that you have to clean new discs? With the thing, the disc froze almost at the end, I had to clean the disc up - no smudges or anything. Apparently, it looks like it's a recurring problem with UHD discs? It's not the first time it happens to me on a disc straight out of the case. For example: https://bobpariseau.com/blog/2018/7/26/suffering-individual-disc-playback-freezes-clean-the-disc or this thread: https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=300702&page=11 I use the LG UBK90 4k player.
  6. I never got why that movie was so loved... But damn those screenshots look amazing.... I may just buy it to admire the transfer - that's how big of a nerd I am.
  7. I thought it was a fine mix. Never felt any of those things. If anything the sound effects are mostly limited by the original sound design (you can hear that certain upper high end shrill and distortion when they go up in volume, typical of that era I believe).
  8. Well I didn't even know this was coming tomorrow - I timed the buy perfectly it seems. Got the SN850 deal (which I already received) and the heatsink is coming tomorrow.
  9. The Thing UHD looks magnificent. Well worth the wait!
  10. Lego Fender guitar, that's pretty cute https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/lego-ideas-fender-stratocaster-21329
  11. The Batman Tumbler will be re-released (I guess with a few minor changes?) https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/lego-dc-batman-batmobile-tumbler-76240
  12. Or rent/pay for movies in any of the major apps like Vudu, etc...
  13. They kinda shot themselves in the foot with the ending of the first Matrix...it was hard to top that ending. But I still enjoyed Reloaded but I did hate that dumb cliffhanger at the end - I remember that very clearly in the theatre... everybody was like "Da fak? they ended it there?" That could have been handled more gracefully I suppose. Revolutions was disappointing to me, because we didn't really get satisfying answers to everything we got exposed to in Reloaded. Also the whole I have powers outside the matrix too.... kinda lost me to be honest. They went full hard-on with the jesus theme and that frankly turned me off the movie too. I was just as disappointing in the last Mr Robot episode BTW It's a good popcorn movie but I totally get the backlash against it. I like this trailer - it does what I think any trailer should do, get you intrigued about exactly what this is... instead of giving the whole thing away. Oddly, I'm not excited about it? Intrigued for sure.. not excited, but that's ok - I think it's better this way
  14. Yeah iOS was ok with Apple Music when I tested it during the trial - main feature I missed was the handoff you can do in spotify (mainly from my PC to my phone).
  15. It's interesting to read that Apple Music has problems even on OSX. I would have expected it to be a much smoother and better integrated experience there. One big change to Spotify however, that I dislike, it's their home page changes - It's clearly trying to push podcasting now very hard... I dislike that I can't tell it to stop showing me podcasts, simply because I sampled some. The matching feature (to your local library) actually used to be a feature of Spotify but they removed it - who knows why...
  16. That was the main reason I decided to stay with Spotify. Spotify’s apps are everywhere and they are usually smooth, immediate and responsive. Apple Music is clunky as hell and I’m windows you either have to use the atrocity that is iTunes or the web version of Apple Music - bah!
  17. Nice, I’ve been waiting for these to start playing.
  18. The Thing 4K Limited Edition - apparently it will only be available in the UK? https://shop.warnerbros.co.uk/the-thing-collector-s-edition-4k-ultra-hd-blu-ray
