    Always been an outdoors person, grew up in the sticks of Northamptonshire but aged 18 moved to Birmingham and went city soft for 14 years but now back out in the Worcester countryside. Always had air rifles and shot on mates farms etc as well as lots of fishing but married life and working for myself meant saying bye to fishing but hello to more short session shooting. Have SGC and Browning 525, also member of shooting club and FAC. Recently joined a DIY syndicate so looking forward to first game season. Am yet to ask fellow members to take me shooting but only a matter of time...

  1. And all practical effects, lots of wires and pulleys etc to puppeteer the various elements. The only bad thing in that film is the final wolf in the alley that looks like a charity shop fur coat on a saw horse
  2. I think it was Mission Impossible rather than Witcher but I wholeheartedly agree - it was like those mouth replacement talking baby adverts of a few years back You must be the Mayor of Crazytown? The plot is definitely derivative - Dances with wolves in space but the CGI is absolute top class photo real, the water effects alone are still world class. The rendering is incredible, look at the sequence with the weird space jellyfish dandelion things, each one casts its own light source with corresponding shading. On top of that still the very best that 3D ever offered and probably the only reason it had a resurgence. TLDR: plot = meh?, CGI = captain fantastic!
  3. Here’s some movie trivia you definitely don’t need to know, Megashark vs Giant Octopus stars Debbie Gibson the former 80’s pop star, and they went for broke with the sequel of Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus by casting Tiffany of “I think we’re alone now” fame! You can smell the low budget in both films by the fact so many scenes are shot in the same location and despite being days/weeks apart in the story there are the same people hanging around in the background! Things you notice when production is your job. An absolute classic, I could watch that again and again as a teenager!

    The Meg

    Roughly the same as the sequel but with 33% less shark heads

    The Meg

    I saw the Meg in the cinema and was equally disappointed - the trouble for me was it wasn’t good, but also it wasn’t so bad it was good. Something like snakes on a plane knows exactly what it is and so is enjoyable in a disengage your brain and enjoy the madness way, Meg played it too straight. In the first teaser trailer it had Statham punching the shark on the nose and that was the level of knowing I wanted but didn’t get. if you want a really bad one try “three headed shark attack” which is the sequel to... you guessed it, “two headed shark attack”
  6. Loving the idea that the best way to check someone was killed in an accident is to email them to verify
  7. So true, one of my first telly jobs was a thing for ITV where two antique experts went round flea markets buying stuff to then shift on at auction. They might make £500 profit per episode but it would have taken two people about three or four days plus petrol and everything else so a massive loss - the viewing public don’t realise it’s all fake and are inspired to follow them
  8. First post shutdown trip today, have to pre book slots with 2 max per group - there’s five in my shooting gang so I went solo and the others did pairs. Weird the ground being so quiet but was cracking to be out again, albeit in strong winds that made no two birds the same wonder when we’ll be able to squad up again? shot 64 of 100 so not world class yet but still pleased given the circumstances
  9. Just a random thought is there a chance some local do gooder saw a load of dead birds in a field and collected them for some kind of investigation into how they died? That huge flocks of starlings found dead recently might have buoyed someone to investigate having not realised cause of death was deliberate human activity?
  10. It blew my mind when a new hire in my office was revealed to have been born after the Spice Girls were first number one! Next year I expect to hire my first person whose year of birth starts with a 2 - that's going to hurt
  11. It’s about the only way I could afford one! Hope you’re doing okay dude

    There’s already quite a few journos done exactly this, and identical twins with different addresses, and the results are as different as you can imagine - like a fortune teller they will tell you what you want to hear money for old tosh, and also from a security POV a bit dangerous as they are also keeping your DNA profile in a database searchable by third parties
  13. Have you got a link for that as I’ve just checked the March 2020 GL for woodpigeon and that explicitly states you can use FAC semi auto?
  14. Shouldn’t be a Triffid, they are killed by seawater and would imagine that location would be terminal
  15. I'm 99% confident they won't allow an open for a first time grant The best you can hope for would be to find out if the land you're planning on stalking on has been cleared for .243 and then you're okay
