  1. Well, I like pretty much everything from back in the day. My very first album was "Appetite for Destruction" by Guns N' Roses, purchased from my very first pocket money at the age of 6. A month later I got me a copy of "Master of Puppets" by Metallica. 32 years later I still love both albums dearly. If you grow up with quality stuff like this, you can be nothing but thankful. I made a lengthy post about my favorite albums:
  2. 10 minutes extra after the first half? This is just ridiculous.
  3. "Wakanda Forever" is such a disastrous movie, it ruined the MCU for me. There are a couple of things left, but I rather watched something more worthwhile instead.
  4. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) The opening scene is great, the closing scene is good. Everything in between is utter garbage. Two xenophobic nations fight each other to decide which one is the bestest xenophobic nation. Not to forget the scene where civilian policemen were killed in a drone strike – tells you all you need to know about the mindset of Hollywood these days. Absolute filth! R.I.P. Chadwick Boseman
  5. Oh, and just because I already made that exact mistake: When creating a new device password on playstation.com, make sure to log in with said password before closing the page. Otherwise the password will become invalid immeditately. I had some issues with this when Sony made device passwords a requirement. That's why I removed... ah, fuck me... 😣
  6. And you thought this was a useful comment? I've already removed this section from my post. Be quicker next time.
  7. This has been an issue since the dawn of PSN. Nothing unusual.
  8. Have you called Sony's support hotline? Or used the support chat? If not, why? Why do so many people ask other users for help even if that's quite obviously something that only the support can fix? https://www.playstation.com/en-ca/support/?smcid=pdc%3Aen-ca%3Aprimary nav%3Amsg-support%3Asupport
  9. I've got myself a month of Disney+ to watch all MCU movies for the first time. The last one was the pretty terrible "Black Panther", the worst MCU flick so far. Next up will be "Infinity War". Hopefully this won't be another dumpster fire.
  10. Star Wars Episode I-IX (1977-2019) I've been watching all nine Star Wars movies over past three days in chronological order, previously only knowing the original trilogy. Well, what can I say? "The Last Jedi" already was a terrible movie, but "The Rise of Skywalker" left me dead inside. This is what happens if talentless hacks without any respect for the legacy given the task to make a movie. Terrible pacing (the first 60 minutes were painful), wooden acting, a plot with more holes than Swiss cheese, poor dialogue, and poor editing make for the single worst big budget film I've ever seen. I'm usually very generous when it comes to errors in films, given how difficult it is to actually make a movie. But the scene where guys from the Resistance are riding horses on top of a star destroyer while being in space without any means to breathe.. fuck me, I'm out.
  11. I've got myself an month of Disney+ and this is what I've watched in the past three days:
  12. You should user bigger images in the future; 1600*2400 is way too small.
  13. Rocky Balboa (2006) The final entry in the Rocky series. Much better than the terrible predecessor from 1990, the movie recaptures the sombre tone of the first Rocky movie and brings the series to a worthy and heartwarming end. I expected a terrible flick and was very positively surprised.
  14. Gotta weep every time I think of it.
  15. https://forum.psnprofiles.com/contact/ Or contact @Sly Ripper directly.
  16. Scarface (1932) & Scarface (1983) It's been a while since I last saw the 1983 remake of this classic gangster movie. After now watching both movies back to back, I came to the conclusion that the original reigns supreme. Sure, it's difficult to compare movies that were released over 50 years apart from each other. But not in this case. With a running time of 170 minutes, the remake is about 80 minutes longer than the original. Several scenes do not necessarily benefit the movie and could've easily been omitted. The movie feels bloated at times and has some pacing issues. Al Pacino does a great job as Scarface, but he lacks the charme of his 1932 predecessor Paul Muni. Come to think of it, the cast of the original is the main reason why I prefer it over its remake. Paul Muni and Ann Dvorak as his sister Cesca (see image below) just ooze charisma and have an excellent screen presence. I cannot take my eyes off of her whenever she's present. If you only know the overly violent remake, watching the original is an absolute must.
  17. Rocky V (1990) Well, what can I say about this one? The Rocky series definitely hit rock bottom with this one. Every aspect of the film feels like a cheap cash grab. The plot is dumb, the new characters flat and unlikable and the end is probably one of the most pathetic I've ever seen. Well, I still have one more Rocky movie to go: Rocky Balboa from 2006. Can't wait. 😐
  18. Octopussy (1983) Wow, what a terrible film that was! A nonsensical plot full off conveniences, contrivances, and flat characters. James Bond dressed in a clown costume, a gorilla outfit and doing a Tarzan yell during a jungle chase makes for the worst of the Moore films and one of the worst Bonds overall. Just dumb and comical.
  19. My account was created on 23 June 2008.
  20. Rocky IV (1985) The Rocky series has completely run out of steam at this point and the plot is as ludicrous as it is predictable. The film is best summarized with this gif:
  21. Rocky II (1979) + Rocky III (1982) I haven't seen these movies in over a decade. Pretty cheesy at times but still leagues better than the filth Hollywood shits out today. Bill Conti's music still kicks ass.
  22. For a Few Dollars More (1965) Classic Western films never get old, especially when its soundtrack is from the late and great Ennio Morricone.
  23. Aerosmith – Permanent Vacation (1987)
  24. Nothing. There is no censorship in Germany. Our youth protection, however, went a little overboard in the past but got significantly more relaxed since 2003. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Department_for_Media_Harmful_to_Young_Persons
  25. The Evil Dead (1981) This movie has a very difficult history here in Germany. It was banned from 1984 to 2016 and caused a widespread controversy regarding violence in movies – similar to the "video nasty" craze in the UK. Today it can be found everywhere for dirt cheap. Things have definitely changed.
