2020.08.04 00:45 FalconsTCWes on Challenge Mania 8/3/20 Discussion
Please support Scott and Derrick, I’m thankful for Challenge related media. Subscribe, download, rate, and review their pod, support their advertisers, consider their patreon. I highly recommend listening as there is a lot of other great stuff not listed, including interesting and necessary nuance. Shoutout to Scott for his “IT WAS ME, AUSTIN”
While Wes/Bananas were canoodling at the MTV awards, Cory ended up being seated 2 tables away. Wes said Cory caught the end of the kumbaya, and could’ve possibly joined their little agreement had they caught each other earlier. Cory and Bananas ended up having a private conversation at the after party and Wes thinks they agreed to leave each other alone and that’s why Cory didn’t vote for Bananas when Ashley was rallying votes against him.
Wes thought Rogan and Bananas were working together due to their in-house relationship, but admitted he was off on that.
Ashley ended up having multiple tantrums and meltdowns, only a small portion was shown.
After being eliminated, Ashely went on a near 10 minute rant against Wes getting pretty personal and toed the line, but never completely crossed it. Expresses that his feelings are hurt about what she said, and hopes she apologizes next time they see each other.
Wes feels Nany got the shit end of the edit with Jenna/Kailah going in while Nany was tribunal. Feels as though Jenna was never going to quit, was misinterpreted (lots of nuance here that you should listen to)
Regarding Jordan argument: Wes was stretching, Cory/Nelson were doing sprints. Once they were done, Wes was helping them fix the turf. Jordan started screaming at them about the right way to fix it, Wes feels embarrassed about biting the bait.
Wes ignored Bananas’ plea to not go after Jordan, and rallied enough people to vote in Jordan. Nany and Wes finish last because of Jay missing the math, Nany gets scared, shares a cigarette with Jordan, and avoids Wes on the bus. Wes knows Jenna and Kailah will follow suit with Nany and he backs out of the plan.
Wes went in against Bananas for two main reasons, one, there hadn’t been a Hall Brawl and most of the guys left were bigger than him, and two, with his knowledge of filming end date approaching, he was confident that there was maybe enough time for girls cycle - guys cycle - girls cycle - purge - final. He didn’t foresee multiple double eliminations and no purge/red skull send off (lots of nuance I recommend listening to)
2020.08.03 07:07 tiny_doughnutAFLW Sign and Trade: Master Post
Hi everyone! Going to keep an eye on incoming signings and list changes as we go along, don’t hesitate to post any articles that you see and give me a poke if I haven’t updated! Hope you’re all staying safe and well, and we’ll be back at Ikon Park for season 2021 soon 🍩❤️ Points worth remembering for this trade period:
The trade period runs until Wednesday 12th of August, however players can continue to be re-signed and restricted free agents (new in 2020) can move clubs until Monday, 17th of August.
Players qualify for restricted free agent status if their club offer a lower-tier contract than they were previously on. If a rival club has a better offer, their existing club can either match or allow the player to freely move.
Delisted free agents may still find a new home until 2pm, Friday 21 August, after which the AFLW draft order will be confirmed.
Clubs can sign up to 27 players (including up to three rookies) before the draft, a date for which has not yet been set.
The Victorian draft nomination rule (players could choose Geelong, Melbourne metro or Victoria) will no longer be in effect this year. The rule - which gave players a degree of choice if they were unwilling or unable to travel for the part-time competition - was only in place for Geelong's first two seasons.
For the vast majority of these signings, I’m taking a best guess on the length unless specifically stated by the clubs in their announcements. If I’ve had any slip-ups, pls let me know so I can update!

In some ways, Destroy All Humans! shows its age, being a remake of a game that's now 15 years old, in a genre that's grown a lot in those years. But it's also got a sense of humour and parody of American life that feels more relevant today than when the original game first came out.
There’s no world in which I see this game attracting a new audience. The humour, references, load times and mission structure are evidence of an old game. Returning fans will enjoy their moment with Crypto-137 once again, but in time to see a fresh entry? I’m doubtful.
Overall, Destroy All Humans! is a fantastic remake that I’m sure will please returning fans of the series but might frustrate new audiences. Everything about the game looks great and runs well but since nothing about the core gameplay has changed, it feels stuck in the early 2000s.
Was it always this bad? Or was the original merely a product of its time, having no business in the year 2020? Either way, this remaster has been the sort of letdown that’s made me reconsider if anything from my childhood was as good as I remember.
Even 15 years after the original release Destroy All Humans! is a great example for satire done right. The gameplay and graphics are adjusted to modern standards but there isn't much more added to the original, which makes the Remake also an diverting adventure, missing its potential.
It may be a bit of a stretch to see if any game holds up after 15 years, but Destroy All Humans! is still a mindless romp of manic mass destruction that excels in the replayability department. A brilliantly polished slice of nostalgia, Destroy All Humans! knows exactly where to focus its energies with its silly story, updated gameplay and a graphical overhaul that is light-years ahead of the original invasion.
Crypto-137 is hellbent on ensuring that humanity meets a terrible fate. By comparison, Destroy All Humans has met an enjoyable-enough-but-certainly-not-amazing fate. That's fine, but it's tough to not feel as though something truly great could've happened with some more creative license. If nothing else, this remake left me thinking that Destroy All Humans is still a viable property and that a brand new game might not be such a bad idea. But maybe that's because an extraterrestrial has control of my cortex.
This remake of Destroy All Humans! is really quite incredible and the developers at Black Forest Games should be applauded for what they’ve achieved. The original has been torn apart and rebuilt with the benefit of modern day visuals and game play design while retaining the game’s original character.
Scoring around the 7.5/10 mark in 2005, this "Remake" doesn't really improve anything over the original. Yes, the graphics are updated, and yes the HUD and interfaces are decluttered, but the core lacklustre quality of the "exploration" shines through worse than before.
Overall, the Destroy All Humans! Remake is a fun trip down memory lane, very fun in fact. And whilst the crude and immature humor appealed more to my younger self than now, it's still a ridiculously entertaining ride. The remake's biggest saving grace is nostalgia, and finally bringing this old classic to the PC system. Whilst fans of the original will be very pleased with the nostalgia trip and additional new content, even if it isn't quite substantial.
The dated DNA is still there in some respects, but the genetic engineers at Black Forest have done some intelligent gene editing to ensure that it is still a subject worth harvesting, which is what any true Furon would want anyway.
Destroy All Humans is a fantastic, faithful experience. Both older fans and new fans will find a lot of enjoyment here and hopefully we will see a lot more of Crypto's antics going into the new generation.
As awesome as it is, the arcade action in Destroy All Humans! is only a part of the experience, struggling to carry its rudimentary stealth missions and hit-or-miss writing. It's definitely a blast to level entire neighborhoods and disintegrate humans; we just wish we had to spend less time impersonating them.
While it won't be a game of the year contender, Destroy All Humans stands tall against other 2020 competitors by updating itself for the modern age. With smooth and efficient gameplay, across the board upgrades, and a timeless satire on the 1950s, Destroy All Humans almost effortlessly sets the stage to rebuild itself as a prominent franchise once again.
If you have not played the original Destroy All Humans, and the mindless destruction of the human race is appealing to you, the 2020 remaster is a must-play. While some of the gameplay fundamentals show their age, the fantastic dialogue and voice-over work, especially with Crypto and Orthopox, is entertaining, funny, and top-quality throughout.
I think if you had actually played the original, you may appreciate this upgrade on your walk down nostalgia lane. As a newcomer, it just has no proper place to sit beside the games that exist today and there is no room for it on the shelf. It can be an amusing romp, but you kick up the dust of this Dinosaur at every turn, and the new can of paint just can’t hide that fact.
Destroy All Humans! definitely falls under the 'faithful remake' category, with great humour, short and sweet missions, and lots of stuff to blow up. Blowing things up does become repetitive, but it's still a lot of fun.
Destroy All Humans! brings back all the mindless fun of this series of extraterrestrial action. It might not be the best designed game out there, or the most graphically advanced... But how many games let you throw explosive cows with the power of your mind? Yep, just this one.
Like the original title, this graphic remake of Destroy All Humans! presents itself as a fun title for some gameplay ideas and for its style, without however being able to leave a mark. Unlike 2005, however, the renewed graphic version is not enough to balance a well aged, but still aged, gameplay. Who has never had the opportunity to help the Furon to conquer the earth, could find in Destroy all humans! a pleasant interlude from other more demanding or massive productions. Those who have already taken part in the invasion in 2005, this time may not find a satisfying stimulus to help the imperial cause.
We have in front of us the remake of a classic, we recommend this title not only for the nostalgic ones, but also for the players who want to let off steam for a while on foot or in a ship destroying everything that we find and enjoying the foul-mouthed Crypto and its cracks.
I really enjoyed Destroy All Humans. In many ways, this feels like what a remake should be – it’s modernized and improved to the level of many current games, but very much kept the original spirit. While there is some further room for improvement that prevents it from getting a higher score, I’m certainly happy that I had the chance to play this. It’s left me hoping that the other games get a remake or a new sequel is announced.
Destroy All Humans! has excellent visuals and is fun for a couple of hours. But it's so redundant, uninspired, and devoid of any real energy that I can't recommend it to anyone that doesn't already love the original.
With a strict adherence to the style and performance of the original game, Destroy All Humans! brings all the fun of 2005 (and the frustrations) of the original. This is a game that was fun 15 years ago, and that fun still holds up, only now it has a shiny new coat of paint. Though some cultural references are a bit wince-worthy and there are some ridiculous difficulty spikes, in general Destroy All Humans! is a rollicking good time.
Destroy All Humans! makes an earnest effort to improve on every aspect of the original, but it’s hard to avoid the issues stemming from the era in which it came from. Despite it’s numerous improvements, Destroy All Humans is still plagued with banal repetition and tedium especially as the adventure draws to an end.
Destroy All Humans is a good attempt to bring back the cult classic in 2020, but it misses the mark in a few key areas. While there are some nice improvements to the core gameplay, they don't do enough to rescue the old fashioned mission design and difficulty spikes. It's a shame, because there's some fun to be found here -- you just have to put up with quite a lot of PS2 era baggage. Fans will be delighted, but this remake is hardly out of this world.
Destroy All Humans Remake is a blast to play, not only fun and entertaining but reminds about the older days when a game set out to be fun and entertaining instead of trying to be this realistic cinematic story.
This is the 15th anniversary of the original Destroy All Humans! release, and the remake is wonderfully timed and priced for a comeback. Black Forest Games remained faithful to that release, and modernized it in all the right ways to make it even more enjoyable. It’s a much better and richer game experience because of it, and I really hope this paves the way for a Destroy All Humans! 2 remake. Crypto-137 and Destroy All Humans! is the perfect way to beat the heat this summer.
Overall, Destroy All Humans! does a really great job of recapturing the spirit of the original. But, in a time where we’ve seen some developers take the originals and expand on them greatly, often adding new features altogether, the remake for Destroy All Humans! feels like it missed the boat.
If you thought the original was good, Destroy All Humans! looks and plays even better. Crypto-137 controls incredibly smooth and looks awesome in action. However, an unfixable, corrupted save file, short length and untouched voice acting are quite disappointing.
Playing Destroy All Humans! is like watching an old alien movie in a summer drive-in. The movie may not be a masterpiece, but atmosphere and context play a fundamental role in enjoying the experience. So the not particularly clever mission design and the not-so-inspired mechanics feel a little less annoying when you are playing a game that makes you laugh, does not take itself seriously and does not require a month of vacation to be finished.
Destroy All Humans is a faithful remake that retains the charm of the 2005 original, while dramatically overhauling the visuals and making some improvements to the gameplay. Perhaps a bit too faithful, with missions that now feel too simple and limited to the point of just being a bit boring.
Black Forest Games' remake of Destroy All Humans is a worthwhile adventure for fans of the series and those who grew up with Crypto's antics on the PS2 and Xbox. However, you'll need to make peace with its outdated gameplay mechanics alongside tired dialogue and story beats, many of which feature a number of offensive stereotypes.
Destroy All Humans is by no means a classic, then. It’s showing its age in more than a few ways in 2020, however it’s unique “charm” (read: crude humour) holds up in 2020 and will serve to provide a solid nostalgia trip for fans of the original release. For this reason, it’d be hard to recommend at full price, but if it paves the way for a true, modern sequel with a proper open world, then all aboard the flying saucer!
Given the original title is over 15 years old, the remaster may be forgiven for some of its strange quirks. Although a much longer and deeper narrative or a more streamlined and involved gameplay loop would be preferred, it is a product of its time. This knowledge helps to ease any discontent the title may exude from dated gameplay and narrative elements. In addition, developers Black Forest Games have made some wonderful improvements to the older title, including the addition of the long lost Area 42 Mission - originally cut from the game due to time constraints. Overall, the enhanced visuals, slightly updated gameplay, and old fashioned call-it-as-it-is humour; helps to elevate Destroy All Humans! as one of the better action games of 2020. Granted, it may not be a grade-A contender by modern standards, but it is a faithful and wonderful remake of a classic, and is far better than anyone could have hoped for.
It’s a relic of its time with a brand new coat of paint and an unapologetically dumb parody of B-movies and Cold War hysteria. Even though it’s riddled with issues that are mostly likely caused by its low budget, I think that THQ Nordic and Black Forest Games’ decision to remake the game as a simpler AA title was a smart move.
Destroy All Humans! is a respectable clone of the 2005 original, featuring impressive visuals and moments of explosive fun, but painfully-dated writing and some frustrating missions bring the game back down to earth. Destroy All Humans! is like a pristine 4K Blu-ray re-release of a campy cult movie – a certain niche audience will appreciate the effort, but many may question the point.
Rather than completely re-imagining its core aspects, Black Forest Games has recreated the best portions of Destroy All Humans! for a modern audience. Aspects from the 2005 original that have been brought over hold up well, and the studio has introduced a handful of smart, but important, improvements.
Black Forest Games did a fantastic job recreating the original Destroy All Humans, but its problems run deeper than superficial graphics. Its nostalgia and a few gameplay enhancements, while welcome, won't make this an adventure worth revisiting for most.
All in all, Destroy All Humans is a solid remake of a great little game. Naturally the mission designs and some of the other gameplay elements are a little creaky in 2020, but the developers have done a good job of modifying the core gameplay so that it holds up quite well while still retaining the feel of the original game. Hopefully those who played Destroy All Humans back in 2005 can relive their memories along with a brand new audience who can discover the joys of anal probing.
Destroy All Humans! (2020) is a good remake; Not a perfect one, But absolutely a good. It can't change the fundamental things about the gameplay and let's be honest, that 2005's Game gameplay can't make an excellent impression on the new players. But If you are someone who has memories of that old cult game and wants to recall the memoires, This Remake is worth your time and money. At the same time, if Aline Invasions, Dark sense of humor, repetitive but fun gameplay, and fair games with some problems are your thing, Destroy All Humans! (2020) will get $40 and will give something like 9 hours of forgettable but totally OK entertainment.

2020.06.22 15:33 ND_PCTotal Madness Player Playlists: Chris "Swaggy C" Williams
Happy Monday! Welcome to the latest installment of my "Player Playlist" tribute series. This is part of a series of tribute playlists I've been making for each player on Total Madness as he or she is eliminated (or eventually wins). Within a self-imposed limit of 25 songs, I aim to make a playlist that encapsulates a player's profile (i.e. Jenna is from Long Island), personality (i.e. Kyle is a charming jokester), and narrative (i.e. Jay got thrown into elimination three times, and had a makeout session). Usually, I try to find songs whose lyrics or vibe accomplish this, but in some cases, the title may be enough. Today I'm happy to introduce the Swaggy Playlist (link is to Spotify). Since I don't watch feeder shows, Rookie playlists tend to be a little more... eclectic from a genre perspective and also hone in on only a few aspects of their character. I know he lives currently in Kansas City and that he played collegiate basketball, but otherwise I could really only draw on his proclivity to make tribunals, his nickname, his business enterprise, and his relationship with Bayleigh. What we end up with is a playlist that's half hype songs and half love songs. And you know what? I'm here for that. I need some hype in my life. I need some love. Because the playlist is truly split in two, there is no one activity that I can imagine leaving this playlist on for its entirety. Unless you can think of a situation where you need hype songs and then sappy love songs? Maybe like getting ready for a date and then actually experiencing the date? Does anybody go on dates anymore? I dunno. I'll be leaving this playlist on in the background today and thinking hard about when I would listen to it in the future. As always, because I love feedback, any comments, questions, or suggestions for future playlists are absolutely welcome. People continue to comment and DM me about my other playlists, and some of them have even grown since I first posted them! As a note: I'm particularly interested in what songs everyone wants for the Nelson playlist (whenever the time comes). He's a fun character to watch and I know everyone has an opinion! In case you want to listen to any of the other player playlists I've made, here they are: (Asaf, Jenn, CT, Ashley, Jay, Tori, Jordan, Bear, Big T, Kailah, Jenna, Wes, Mattie). Thanks, everyone! Be sure to check back next Monday for the next installment! If you need or prefer to read this playlist here rather than on Spotify, here you go:
2020.06.20 22:31 Colbster224 Songs I Loved in 2019
For the entire time I’ve been on Reddit, it has felt like there wasn’t really a whole lot of country music fans on the subreddit. Today I found this subreddit and wanted to share something I wrote at the end of last year. It was 24 of my favorite songs of the year. While not all are country (I am a pop and sometimes a rap fan as well) country music has always been the genre of music I enjoy the most. Take a look at what I wrote at the end of last year. Most of my favorites are pretty mainstream but I have been trying to get into some Red Dirt and older country as well in the past few months (thanks quarantine...) “Even Though I’m Leaving” - Luke Combs - This song from his EP released in June about the bond between the narrator and his father quickly became a fan favorite and standout track from the project. Combs takes listeners through different through the different phases of the bond between one and their father. This song spent 3 weeks atop the Billboard Country Airplay chart and has been both a streaming and sales juggernaut. It is no question why this powerful song made my list. “Whiskey Glasses” - Morgan Wallen - From the opening lyrics, “poor me, pour me another drink…” I knew this would be a song I would visit frequently. Wallen’s creative lyrics that include “see the world through whiskey glasses” and vocals set it apart from other uptempo tracks heard throughout this past summer. “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” - Ashley McBryde - Country newcomer Ashley McBryde stands out amongst others thanks to her vocal performance on every song she sings and lyrics that connect with many. This song about overcoming odds and being in a place that people said she would never be resonates with many. After her win for Best New Artist at the CMA’s last month, it is clear this girl is going somewhere! “Jersey On The Wall (I’m Just Asking)” - Tenille Townes - Tenille has been releasing music in Canada for almost a decade, it is a shame that many in the US such as me didn’t have the chance to hear her beautiful voice until this year. Focused on a classmate who passed away in a car crash, Tenille talks to god in this song and asks, “If I ever get to heaven, I got a long list of questions ...why can’t you stop a car from crashing.” I look forward to hearing more from her in the future. “One Man Band” - Old Dominion - The second single from their self-titled album went into my playlist as soon as I first heard it. The opening lyrics “been flyin’ solo for so long, nobody’s singing the harmony,” begins to paint a picture that compare being single to being part of a one man band. With creative lyrics and a nice melody, this was a shoo-in for my list. “Eyes On You” - Chase Rice - This year Chase scored his first #1 hit and it was with a good one! This song tells of someone who has been to many places with his loved one but the best view is when his eyes are on the one he is with. I enjoyed this throughout the entirety of the year. “God’s Country” - Blake Shelton - Blake scored another big hit this year with a great song. Released in March of this year, it became a staple of mine throughout the spring and summer months. It was pouring rain when I saw Blake performing this back in August at Gillette Stadium - and it was awesome! “Does To Me” - Luke Combs & Eric Church - Two of my favorite artists partnered together for a track off of Comb’s album released last month. The basis of this tune is Combs and Church trading off lines about things and experiences in each of their lives that mean a lot to them, even if they do not mean anything to others. A couple lines stand out to me at the end of the song, “I’m damned hard working. One things for certain, I stand up for what I believe. That might not mean much to you, but it does to me.” It helps that aside from the lyrics, the tune is incredibly catchy! “Señorita” - Camila Cabello & Shawn Mendes - One of the few non-country songs on my list is a catchy tune that was huge over this past summer. This collaboration is instantly catchy and was a huge hit this year. “Down To The HonkyTonk” - Jake Owen - This fun tune came out near the end of last year and was still a fun one to listen to throughout 2019. In this one, Jake sings about how he may not end up in the Hall of Fame or or go down in history. He will however go down...to the HonkyTonk. “More Hearts Than Mine” - Ingrid Andress - This unique song takes a look at the ways a family gets close to the significant other while dating someone in their family and how the entire family is impacted when there is a breakup. The line, “If we break up, I’ll be fine. But you’ll be breaking more hearts than mine,” is powerful and amongst all the breakup songs, this one stands out due to Ingrid’s voice and different perspective of a break-up. “Beer Never Broke My Heart” - Luke Combs - This song was released in May and became one of my most played songs all summer long. Luke sings about women, football teams and dogs all being things that have broken his heart. What hasn’t? Beer. Luke’s voice and style make this more than just your average drinking song. “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” - Panic! at The Disco - Prior to the past year or so, I admittedly wasn’t too familiar with Panic! At The Disco but after “High Hopes” and this one, I am a fan. This is a fun tune and my favorite lyrics are the opening lines, “All my life, been hustling and tonight is my appraisal. ‘Cause I’m a hooker selling songs and my pimp’s a record label” “There Was This Girl” - Riley Green - For his debut single, Riley really delivered in my opinion. Particularly during the early portion of the year, I listened to this one a lot. I am typically more of a fan of uptempo songs and this one is right in my wheelhouse. “Memories” - Maroon 5 - I’ve always been a fan of Maroon 5. Even though I was disappointed that Adam Levine left The Voice this year, I was glad that the group continued to have strong output in 2019. This song is a shout out to past memories with those who are still with us as well as those we have lost along the way. “All My Favorite People” - Maren Morris & Brothers Osborne - This was a fun one for one of country music's biggest stars and a duo that really knows how to perform and should be one of the biggest starts within the next couple years. “Not everybody gets what we’re going through, but all my favorite people do,” is a fun hook. It’s a song about good people and good times, two things I consider myself to be surrounded by. “Some Of It” - Eric Church - As one of my favorite artists of the decade, Church always knows how to get reflective and sing a good tune about life. “Some of it you learn the hard way. Some of it you read on a page. Some of it comes with heartbreak. Some of it comes with age.” True stuff. “Sunflower” - Post Malone & Swae Lee - For the past few years, it seems as though Post Malone has been everywhere and I’ve been enjoying every bit of it. This is a fun pop song that I enjoyed hearing all year. “Beautiful Crazy” - Luke Combs - This song about his fiancé captures in both it’s lyrics as well as it’s delivery how Luke feels about the one he is with. A hit on the radio as well as on streaming platforms, Luke scored one of the biggest country hits of the year with this one. There is something about the lyrics such as, “she makes plans for the weekend, can’t wait to go out. ‘Til she changes her mind and says “let’s stay on the couch and watch TV” and she falls asleep” that set it apart from other love songs from 2019. “Shallow” - Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper - While I have still yet to see the highly acclaimed ‘A Star Is Born’, I have heard this song quite a few times and it is a really enjoyable one. This may even be my favorite output from Lady Gaga ever. “SICKO MODE” - Travis Scott - Even though I am not as familiar with rap as many of my friends are, I do really enjoy this one. It was always good to hear this one when it would come on. “Put Me In My Place” - Muscadine Bloodline - This new country duo hasn’t made it big yet but I found this song after someone tweeted about it earlier in the year. It’s a vulnerable and slower song that I really enjoyed in 2019. “Here Tonight” - Brett Young - This song was the lead single from his second major studio album. It’s just a really nice song that I enjoyed throughout the year and I think his voice sounds good whether he is doing a song like this or one of his slower songs such as “In Case You Didn’t Know”. “Chasin’ You” - Morgan Wallen - Another really enjoyable song this year from Morgan Wallen is this song. I first heard it in the summer but it still sounds really good in these colder months!
2020.06.05 07:57 the_nin_collectorHellraiser 1 through 10. Mini review.
I just saw someone say they saw Hellraiser for the first time. Such a good movie I just finished binging all of them. I started the four and half hour, yes, 4.5 hour long documentary on Hellraiser 1-3 but it fucking horrible and I couldn't get past 30 minutes of it.
1 Hellraiser (1987) Solid 10/10. This remains a classic horror movie. Some of the best creature and gore effects put on the screen. I am a huge fan of Andrew Robinson (who played Garek, one of the best Star Trek characters of all time). Ashley Laurence is also fantastic in this movie. The sountrack and ambiance is chilling and jarring. A few good jump scares. Fantastic gore. A story that isn't boring and even 30 years later doesn't feel tired. And Frank's resurrection scenes ranks up there with some of the best special effects scenes from a horror movie, up there with the spider creature scene from Thing.
2 Hellbound: Hellrasier 2 (8/10) Still a very solid horror movie that doesn't fall into the a lot the paint by number horror tropes. Its a direct sequel taking place mere hours after the first movie. Still has a great chilling soundtrack. Gore. Its a really macabre story and setting. The first half is a little too much a retelling of the first storyline. Almost just repeated. The 2nd half is better and the new Cenobite is the highlight of Hellraiser 2. This movie is better than most horror sequels, but a little too similar to the first one. Ashley Laurence is great in this one again, its a shame she never really rose to further heights. She has been working ever since, but nothing of merit.
3 Hellraiser 3: Hell on Earth. I have come to the conclusion that the most horrific thing in the first 3 movies are all the haircuts. This is still a decent horror flick I could recommend. (7/10) There were a lot of little odd things that I didn't like. So much smoking, there was even a smoking Cenobite! It was ridiculous. Like a forced add for Marlboro. I think the movie had 75 minutes of smoking in its 90 run time. Also J.P. is supposed to be a scum bag, but good lord he was so unlikable. I didn't realize another Deep Space Nine actor was in a Hellraiser movie. Terry Ferral is one of the main characters. Its biggest flaws are that I think this movie tried to be more than it was, it was too ambitious. The first two movies had tight settings and plot. The cheese factor crept in a little in this one and the Cenobites were a bit silly (but still a little cool too to see what they came up with). Pinhead was at his best in this movie and had a ton a screen time.
4 Hellrasier: Bloodline. (6.5/10) There is a decent horror film here begging to get out. But too much doesn't work here. This was not just a cheap sequel trying to cash in on the name, it genuinely wanted to flesh out and add to the Hellraiser mythos and was written by the same guy who did #2 and #3 and was friends with Clive Barker. It tried giving a story "the box" and explaining a little more how demons and hell work. But if feels like as the ambition got bigger, it looks like budget and production seemingly went down. This story takes place in the 1800, 1990s, and 2130s. The future/space third is pretty bad like so much of the mediocre sci-fi of the 90s (think Lawnmower Man dated effects and Leprechaun in Space). The movie was so bad initially and had so many problems the director, his second movie ever, took his name off the movie and never directed another film (but he still works in special effect to this day). After a new director and re-shoots and many cuts of the film, we have what we have today. The good stuff here is that it does add a lot to the Hellraiser lore. It stars Parks and Rec Adam Scott (Ben Wyatt). The gore effects and Cinobites are still good and fun and this movie gives us one of the best sound bites of the entire series, When Pinhead asks "do I look like someone who cares what god thinks" in a big booming voice. The hairstyles in the movie are still somehow terrible and, 1990s plot line is never explained, it just ends, and why does "the most productive space station in orbit" look like a Fraggle Rock trash heap with all the lights turned off? The few bursts of cgi are so bad I almost feel bad mentioning it.
5 Hellraiser: Inferno (7/10) Half the budget of the last film but a much better produced movie. This one was a direct to video movie so the bar and expectations are already set low. It not a half bad horror movie. BUT as a Hellraiser film... well, Dimension films owned a generic horror script with a film noir detective touch, lets call it, Inferno, and they simply shoehorned Pinhead and the Cenobites into to make it a Hellraiser film. The two main actors are nothing exciting like the last 4 films. Craig Shaffer who has a 100 bit parts in movies and random TV shows over the last 3 decades. And Nicholoas Tutturro who you probably don't know unless you were a fan of NYPD Blue (such a good cop show!) or Blue Bloods. Very bit parts from Carmen Argenziano (Star Gate SG-1) and James Remar (maybe best known as Dexter's father in Dexter). Its not a half bad horror movie. I liked it better than the last one, but its not that great as far as Hellraiser films go. BUT the box is finally given a name. The Lament Configuration.
6 Hellraiser: Hellseeker The good: main actor is Dean Winters (Brooklyn Nine Nine, 30 Rock, John Wick 1, Law and Order SVU, Rescue Me, and his claim to fame, HBO's OZ). Ashley Lawrence comes back to the series. Bad news is this is yet another direct to video release and yet another generic horror script owned by Dimension Films in which they shoehorned the Hellrasier bits into the story. (5/10) This movie was just boring. This is the first one I thought was a total waste of time. I slightly enjoyed the mediocre reveal at the end of the movie, but it wasn't worth the journey to get there. It was a total waste of Dean Winters and Ashley Lawrence. We get an okay one liner "welcome to the worst nightmare of all...reality." Sure, but then it is revealed they are in hell, so the line makes zero sense.
7 Hellraiser: Deader (5/10) Pretty much on par with the last movie. Not worth your time. This was filmed back to back with #8, Hellworld, in Romania. This was yet another generic script owned by Dimension Films and they just shoehorned the Hellraiser bits in there. With this movie it really shows. No good one liners. Cinebites are boring. Why is Pinhead even here? There is one decent Hellraisehorror scene, but its the same scene we have seen 4 or 5 times before. Chains fly out of the walls and rip some dude apart. SFX legend Stan Winston's name was attached to this project. Didn't help. Directed by Rick Bota,who directed all 4 of the 10 worst Hellraiser films. It stars Kari Wuher who was decent in this movie. She has been in a ton of tiny roles in the last 3 decades, Sliders might have been her longest role, two of the Command and Conquer games, and a quite a few Friday night teen horror movies (8 Legged Freaks, Anaconda, etc.)
8 Hellraiser: Hellworld. (6/10) I can recommend this entry in the series, but for all the wrong reasons. We get to an entry that crossed over from bad to so bad its good, complete with a Verhizon "can you hear me now?" cellphone joke. The cast is a half decent reason to watch. Pre-Superman and Witcher, Henry Cavil, co-stars. Lance Henrikson also costars. His list of movies, TV, and video game work is pages long (Alien, Millennium, and Mass Effect are his biggest in each category) and is still working at age 80 having just appeared in Detroit: Become Human and the New Looney toons. And Kathrying Winnick, best known for her 7 years on Vikiings, which she landed 18 years after this movie! So, this Hellraiser has totally cashed in. It is text-book cheesy. It takes place in a world where Cenobites, Pinhead, and Hellraiser are well known in pop culture. Its the late 90s so of course it about time we throw in a horrible, very fake, video game/internet story element, and cellphones as a major story element because people in the 90s didn't know anything about computers yet and cellphones where still rare unknown gadgets, so you could still pull off whatever computer story element you wanted (you know? like the X-files: First Person Shooter or the ultra realistic Hackers) /s. Every tune that plays in this movie begins like this, "wow, did they really get this song for this movie. Oh never mind, its just the first 3 notes." This movie was filmed back to back with Hellraiser: Deader and helmed by series terrible, Rick Bota. BUT believe it or not, this was actually an original Hellraiser script, unlike the last 3 Hellraiser movies which were generic scripts that later had Hellraiser bits shoved in. Still, it could have easily fit into to the other because the Hellraiser bits felt shoved in.
9 Hellraiser: Revelations. (4/10) I have such mixed feelings about this one. I love that its a back to basics story for the most part, something they needed to do after #3. The gore and SFX are really good. Some of the best we have seen in the entire series. But this movie is part found footage, which is horrid. The other sections are filmed like a poorly made TV show. It feels like a college film at times. The acting and dialogue are really uneven. Sometimes not bad at all, then at other times they are just putrid. The two teenage actors in this are terrible pretty much the entire time, and I think are the ultimate nail in the coffin that brings this entry over the line to a "not recommended." In order for Dimensions Films to hold onto the rights of Hellraiser they had to hurry and make a film. This film was literally made in 3 weeks with a $300,0000 budget and it shows. I think more time to polish this movie, we could have actually had a decent Hellraiser movie. The movie poster for this one is easily the best thing to come out of it. I think its one of the best posters in the whole series. Pinhead looking so freaking sinister.
10 Hellraiser: Judgment. Wow! What a pleasant surprise. (8/10) This is easily the 3rd best movie in the series. Supposedly made on an incredible $350,000 budget. But this movie hits every checkbox. See what you can do if you put a little effort into it. Its a bit strange that it 90% police procedural movie, but it works. The serial killer plot line is a little tired, but it also works. Everything from start to finish is tied together. A few things seemed superfluous (like the first 10 minutes of the movie felt like they just threw it in there so you can get some horror action at the start), but 100% ended up tying into the story later. I was impressed. They really try to flesh out the Hellraiser mythos and give a little insight how hell is run behind closed doors. We are introduced into a new sector of hell, the Stygian Inquisition (but I am still not clear how they fit in with Pinhead's group, theOrder of the Gash). The new Pinhead was good too. I don't know if it was on purpose but 2 of the 3 main leads were basically a Michel Fassbender and Rose Byrne lookalikes. the cast, assumingly paid pennies for the roles, did a really good job and did not feel like they were yanked out of a local community theater. They introduced a new character, who I really hope makes a return. The Auditor. He was my favorite part about the movie. The movie was written and directed by the guy who did the makeup and many of sfx on Hellraiser 3 through 9. He also wrote #9, which was probably the only decent thing about #9. Surprise! He also plays the Auditor. I really hope this guy is involved in the next movie or the newly announced HBO show (but its looking like no, the new show will be a reboot). (BTW, there is a post credit scene). I am glad we got this movie, but Gary Tunnicliffe, the guy who made this film, had to fight tooth and nail to get made. Supposedly Dimension turned his vision down a few times then when it was greenlit, they were preoccupied with the Harvey Weinstein bomb. Tunnicliffe had a lot of ideas for this film the just could not be done on this pitiful budget. Its a shame. Its worth reading more about this. It was made at the same time and (produced by the same person) as a new Children of the Corn movie. One of the actors in Hellraiser was the director of the Children of the Corn. 10 to 15 minutes of the film were cut and deemed TOO EXTREME for Dimension's Extreme Film group of horror films. Pinhead was originally going to be a little redesigned, with his grid cuts looking more haphazard and diagonal. Like the last film, this one was shot in just 3 weeks times, albeit with a lot of pre-production and help from the Oklahoma locals where it was shot. It was edited and finished post production in another 3 weeks and then sat on the shelf for 2 years. Many think the only reason it saw the light of day because of the Harvey Wienstien scandal hurt Dimensions films so badly, they needed the money.

Hello and welcome to the latest Nugu Roundup! What is this?: This is a weekly feature designed to highlight the unknown/underappreciated groups and soloists working hard in the Kpop world that often fall under the radar. Please share your own information, favorite performance videos, fanmeet stories, or anything else relevant below! Last week we had a special crossover event with Jukebox! This week let's check out a cool new boy group that had an interesting debut strategy, let's get to know NewKidd! What is Nugu?: While in Korean it literally means 'Who' in the broader Kpop context it refers to groups that are generally unknown amongst the greater public. It doesn't have to mean they're extremely new, though it can, and there are of course varying degrees of 'unknown' which some groups having very strong niche fandoms and others being almost invisible. I take a fairly broad view and will include groups that may be known to some, but who don't have widespread name recognition. Let's get on with the show... ________________________________________________________ NewKidd Who are they? NewKidd is a 7 member boy group under J-Flo Entertainment.

Releases
Spark Spark (audio) Live Showcase (link) A hyperactive electro-pop song
Crazy Day (MV) Live Stage (Link) The video was filmed in the Maldives, and the official company YouTube blurb has one of those bits of early-Kpop English that makes me giggle "the hook includes an addictive melody with an abrupt high pitch" Also check out the company's official teaser (link) with their interesting 'code names'. There was supposed to be a 3D version released, but I can't seem to find it online.

Active Between: May 6th, 2011 - October 20th, 2017 Random Stuff
Reasons for Disbandment: No official statement given, but looking at the numerous lineup changes throughout the history of the group and the lack of success on the charts it's possible the company folded or just decided to pull the plug. When it came time for the release of Giru's solo album there were originally plans for an MV, however the company could not pay for it and the home-made MV which was created was deemed too low in quality to release. Trivia: Member Gabin was formerly a member of 2NB with EXID's Solji. Member Tina was born in Los Angeles and is good friends with Ashley of Ladies Code. Member CoCo later joined CocoSori and has since become a YouTuber and done solo work. Member Yeji redebuted as Ryeowon (her real name) as a member of PRISM. Having had eight members leave over the course of the group's career puts Blady in the top-ten of 'most members lost' lists (though still far behind Rania, Baba, and BADKIZ). ___________________________________________________ That's it for today, let's get the discussion on! As always, if you have any suggestions for groups, content, or things you'd like to see, please let me know in the comments below. Also as always, a big shout-out to u/not-named-in-credits for founding nugutown and u/sharnaranwan for continuing the work over there.
2020.05.17 15:17 jcollywobbleWhich part of the UK produces the best footballers? (Experiment) (Part 1)
After taking inspiration from u/Mel0n_collie world cup thread, I’ve set up a similar experiment which I’m planning to simulate on Football Manager 2020 which has kept me busy over the last few weekends during lockdown. Hopefully, this experiment will provide the answer to the following questions: Which part of the UK produces the best footballers? Where do the real footballing hotbeds lie in the UK? What if the Premier League was split into 20 teams representing UK regions of equal population? Essentially, I’ve split up the UK into 20 equal(ish) geographical regions, with the idea being that each region has a team made up of players born in that region. I’ve used this website which shows the population of each county, I then calculated that each team should be made up of players from a region of 3.26m people (65.171m/20). Teams are filled up with whole counties, except for Greater London which has been split up into 3 regions due to having around 9m people in total. Note:Due to the diversity of the county populations and the challenges of geographically dividing the UK, some teams have slightly more/less than the aforementioned 3.26m people. Split of Counties into Teams https://preview.redd.it/2ney8b7fobz41.png?width=777&format=png&auto=webp&s=664a8a135dc29363406a819c89c296d339db1934 Here we have it, the 20 regions have been split up. Team 14 (Greater Manchester) have the smallest population but hopefully the produce of the academies of Premier League giants Man Utd and Man City will come to the fore. Team 7 has the largest population, but it remains to be seen whether this will translate into footballing ability just yet. I have also made some maps using my below-average paint skills to help visualise the split geographically. I picked each team using a database of players from Football Manager 2020. I extracted a list of players into excel and began manually allocating each player to a team based on their city of birth (according to FM). Ultimately, I ended up on a squad of 25 players for each team and have tried my best to allocate an even positional spread throughout each squad so that the AI managers aren’t forced to play any ridiculously attacking/defensive formations. Squads have been loosely picked around current ability, reputation and transfer value. Each team will be managed by a manager born from the region they are managing. I’ve allocated the manager with the highest reputation in each region according to FM to each team. This will add an extra element to the experiment and will be to interesting to see how much of an influence some of the better managers will have on their respective teams. I will be posting the teams in groups of 5 over 4 posts, I will also be running a predictions game when all the 20 teams have been released so keep an eye out for that. I will then be posting the results of the simulation and prediction game on the fifth and final post. Without further ado, I will reveal the first 5 teams one by one below in numerical order (I would also like some suggestions on team names for each region, as I am aware they’re not very creative!) __________ Team 1 – South-West - Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset – Population: 3,450,896.00 Media Prediction: 16th - Title Odds: 350-1 Manager – Darren Way (Plymouth, Plymouth U18) https://preview.redd.it/4ectj9vpobz41.png?width=510&format=png&auto=webp&s=2d967a07ea6011c4cf8ea7f6ac9a2ee83fc44d0e Likely Starting XI A region famous for Pasties, Cheese and Cider, the South West has brought to the nation many good things but unfortunately footballers (and managers) don’t seem to follow that trend. I had to search long and hard to find a manager that was born in this region. I eventually found Darren Way, who according to FM is the current Plymouth Argyle U18 Manager who recently had a spell in charge of League Two side Yeovil Town. Predicted to be in the bottom five come the end of the season, this squad seems like it will need a manager with a bit more experience to do anything of note. The squad lacks all round quality, especially fullbacks, lets hope Darren Way is impartial to a 3 at the back system. Stand out players include Leeds United defender Ben White who has had a great season in the championship this year, Tyrone Mings, who has recently won his first England caps and Austrian U20 capped Burnley striker Ashley Barnes who looks like the best attacking option in the side. Amongst the rest of the team, Scott Sinclair and Nathan Dyer look like they’ll occupy the flanks and will be hoping to re-ignite the success they both had together at Swansea back in the 2011/12 season. Jack Butland and John Ruddy will be competing for the number one shirt, who along with Tyrone Mings, share the squads total England caps (11) between them. The team also some exciting young talent in Ethan Ampadu and Xavier Amaechi, who are both currently learning their trade in the Bundesliga. Arguably the best player in the Championship this year to date, Ollie Watkins will be hopeful to add some more goals to his ever increasing tally. I am not hopeful for this team, considering the lack of top players and with the inexperienced Darren Way in charge but I’m hoping he can prove me wrong! __________ Team 2 – South-East - East Sussex, West Sussex, Kent – Population: 3,495,475 Media Prediction: 20th - Title Odds: 600-1 Manager: Lee Johnson (Newmarket, Bristol City) https://preview.redd.it/bxyum58xpbz41.png?width=539&format=png&auto=webp&s=290fe752211ad1ae898e9eb0fe2fffe16538aee1 Likely Starting XI Up next, we have the combined counties of Sussex and Kent, the South East of England. Taking the reigns is Lee Johnson, current Bristol City manager, who has done well in recent years in the championship. However, in terms of ability it doesn’t get much worse. The media have predicted them to be rock bottom at the end of the season and have offered odds of 600-1 for a title win for Lee Johnson’s men. The squad does boast the experience of Gareth Barry, who is the record all-time premier league appearance maker (653) and has also been capped 53 times by his country will be a frontrunner for captain duties. Sunderland ‘til I die fan favourite Jonny Williams makes an appearance in midfield along with Solly March who looks to be the most promising player in the final third. The goalkeeper spot looks to be an issue with not one of the three goalkeepers being the first-choice keeper in their respective championship club sides. However, the Brighton duo of Lewis Dunk and Adam Webster look to be a solid partnership at the back and will be hoping to limit the amount of shots at goal. With weaknesses in goal and up front, the media’s prediction is probably warranted, lack of goals looks to be a big worry with none of the forwards seeming to have top-level experience. I would be impressed with Lee Johnson if he could lead the South-East to safety with the resources at his disposal. __________ Team 3 – South Coast - Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Surrey – Population: 3,135,638 Media Prediction: 8th - Title Odds: 30-1 Manager: Neal Ardley (Epsom, Notts County) https://preview.redd.it/myk6l7clqbz41.png?width=617&format=png&auto=webp&s=863311423567a60bc3fd4beca94decfb9384bea3 Likely Starting 11 South Coast is managed by former Wimbledon and Watford winger Neal Ardley, current manager of National League side Notts County. Another manager who lacks top level experience will be hoping to make his mark at a higher level. This team has a bit of quality compared to the previous two and has plenty of premier league experience with a total of 10 players capped by their country. England Internationals Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mason Mount have genuine quality in the midfield and will be hoping to create the supply for Danny Ings to grab plenty of goals. However, In defence, Calum Chambers is the stand out player out of an average bunch. Neil Etheridge, who qualifies for the Philippines by virtue of his Filipino mother will compete with Southampton number one, Alex McCarthy for the starting keeper spot. Described as a ‘fairly determined’ squad, South Coast have a lot of industry in the team with players like Matt Ritchie, James Ward-Prowse and Tom Cleverley and will be hoping that this translates on to the pitch with some good performances. The overall verdict in this squad is that they have enough ability and experience to finish the top half and could even push top four in my opinion. __________ Team 4 – South & West London - London Boroughs: Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham, Wandsworth, Islington, Camden, Brent, Ealing, Hounslow, Richmond upon Thames, Kingston upon Thames, Merton, Sutton, Croydon – Population: 3,369,408 Media Prediction: 6th - Title Odds: 9-1 Manager: Roy Hodgson (Croydon, Crystal Palace) https://preview.redd.it/yyb6xy0erbz41.png?width=580&format=png&auto=webp&s=dd158544449df1eb805284797573675ff88a4196 Likely Starting XI The first of the three London teams, which spans most of south and west London is managed by Crystal Palace’s Roy Hodgson. Roy has been a football manager since 1976 and has a wealth of experience to draw upon, including a four-year spell as manager of his country. Despite being at the ripe old age of 72, Roy isn’t the oldest manager in the league.. The squad, tipped by the media to finish 6th, is an exciting young squad with plenty of players tipped to be a big part of England’s future. Premier League loanees Freddie Woodman and Jamal Blackman (who is currently playing at Bristol Rovers on his 7th successive year out on loan from Chelsea) will compete for the starting keeping berth. Man Utd fullbacks Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will almost certainly occupy their respective positions and will hope to offer an attacking outlet bombing on from their full back positions. One of England’s one cap wonder’s Steven Caulker, who currently plays for Turkish outfit Alanyaspor also makes an appearance in defence. In midfield, Declan Rice and Callum Hudson Odoi, both recently capped by England are the strengths which the team will rely on whilst fellow youngsters Ademola Lookman and Steven Alzate who has twice been capped for Colombia will also be looking to make an impact. In Attack, Euro 2016 hero Thomas Henry Alex (Hal) Robson-Kanu, Sone Aluko and Lewis Grabban will all fancy themselves to start. The youthful squad will bring a lot of pace and energy to the league and Roy Hodgson will be hoping for a top six finish at minimum. I think the squad has enough depth and quality to potentially go all the way. __________ Team 5 – East London - London Boroughs: City of London, Lambeth, Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Bromley, Lewisham, Greenwich, Bexley, Havering, Barking and Dagenham, Newham– Population: 3,009,408 Media Prediction: 1st - Title Odds: 4-1 Manager: Chris Hughton (Forest Gate, Unemployed) https://preview.redd.it/5xjrm7rlrbz41.png?width=467&format=png&auto=webp&s=d8a8181cad75f86378130f0ca1dc0c49dc7f517d Likely Starting XI The Media’s favourites, made up of London Boroughs including and east of City of London is the 2nd smallest in terms of catchment area but certainly doesn’t lack quality. Ex-Brighton manager Chris Hughton is in the dug out and has a strong team which looks to have Premier League level quality all round apart from maybe in the goalkeeper position in which Fulham’s Marcus Bettinelli appears to be the likely candidate to start. An all premier league back four consisting of Nathaniel Clyne, Joe Gomez, Chris Smalling and Ryan Bertrand, share 74 England caps between them look to be solid partnership and will be hoping to keep as many clean sheets as possible in order to be in with a chance in the title race. Key man, Jadon Sancho, one of, if not the most exciting player in the league, will be hoping to chip in with as many goals and assists as possible from wherever Chris Hughton deploys him. Jadon has 14 goals and 15 assists in 21 starts this year in the Bundesliga and should be uncontrollable for some of the defences he will be up against . Talented Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be hoping to remain injury free throughout the season and make a good partnership with Jonjo Shelvey who will be looking to dictate play in the middle of the park. Bradley Dack, who according to FM is likely to play off Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham will be looking to provide enough chances for Tammy who should have enough with the level of creative quality surrounding him. Overall, A very strong team who will be hoping to keep Jadon Sancho injury free all season. Probably rightly favourites for the title, however, will face tough opposition from some of the teams yet to come… __________ That’s all for today folks, I hoped you enjoyed the concept and are looking forward to finding out the level of quality each of the remaining teams have in store. I’ll be posting the next five teams in the next post, so keep an eye out! Also let me know if i've potentially missed anyone or made any errors.
