This looks super cheesy and old school - reminiscent of the Sam Raimi Spiderman films!! (Meaning, I’m super excited and want to watch this now)
Confession time : I know both Tom Hardy and Riz Ahmed personally (since before either were famous) so it’s pretty cool to see them in a movie together.
I’ve just noticed the little shield symbols next to Monzo staff names, have I missed a comms on their purpose or is it a secret thing … ?
It’s just to denote forum mods/admins
But do you know them now though?
Haven’t spoken to Tom in years, but still cool with Riz - we have close mutual friends
Pretty decent claim to fame tbh
You should totally use those connections to try and meet Stan Lee. That would give you god like status
It’s probably a story better shared IRL, but the TL:DR is that I met Riz when we were both in a rap battle contest in London. There were about 20 rappers in the contest, I won my heats and ended up placing 3rd overall, Riz then absolutely destroyed the guy that beat me and won the whole competition, which was gratifying
Was it like an 8 Mile battle and is there a video?
It was. In fact it was named “Asian 8 Mile” as all the MC’s were of South Asian descent. No video AFAIK, this was literally like 13 years ago!
What you mean no one was rockin one of these bad boys filming it all?
Well damn. They might have been
Who knows what kind of funky file format those devices used. I tried to get some files off an old Nokia a while back and didn’t have the right codecs. Had to get some old software to play 'em.
I think they were .3gp format?
Yeah, that’s right! Some of them would play and some wouldn’t. VLC managed to handle them eventually I think. There was an even older device I had that used a different format as well, I don’t think I was as lucky with that one.
I just found a load on my server and Quicktime played them fine.
Barely watchable now coz like 260p or less lol
