    I'm absolutely shocked at how little revinue films are generating post-plague! :eek: Perhaps this is the end of cinema after all... :(


    Also:
    Dog Soldiers, good B-movie, that! I wonder if the Am-folk ever saw that?

    Surprisingly, the latest Marvel tentpole came in for a lot of critical flak, but still pulled in the punters from the street - though to a lesser opening than Shang-Chi managed a couple of months ago.

    In game there's clearly something afoot, with our European trio playing a remarkably tight game ...and reaping the rewards with their Eternals predictions! Plus, points for (nearly) everyone.
