Comments of the Week 47: The Ultimate Dad

Still a better dad than Goku

I thought the hype was nothing but bluster. I thought the critics were wrong. I thought, for a fleeting second, that You Were Never Really Here was going to be unable to live up to both its potential and overwhelming praise.

But bloody hell is it a damn good movie, one of the best of the year; like a violence-fueled amalgamation of Drive and Taxi Driver with Joaquin Phoenix delivering a typically powerful performance.

Oh yeah, and God of War came out and turned out to be one of the best exclusives around, on any system.

Also, I apologise for how untimely this blog is. I have been trying to juggle so much as of late, CotW fell pretty hard and fast on my “to-do” list. I’ve been so busy, I haven’t really had much time to get into God of War and despite a few gripes with the camera, overall it is easily a shoe-in for my game of the year list – even if it’s the only new game I have played this year (besides Super Mario Odyssey) to actually be outstanding.

Anyhoo, enough downer stuff, let’s talk about you…or those of you who I like enough to put on the list at least.

TheLimoMaker: I genuinely guffawed at that. That is one damn long advertisement.

That’s it from me here, folks. I’m hoping that, when my next edition rolls around, my deadlines will all be sorted and I can finally rest up for the long stretch of work over the summer.

That means QPosts will be back! Hooray!

I hope you all have a lovely day.
