In the article, Edgar says he really likes the book and when he saw the film, he was surprised at how different it was to the original material. So rather than a remake, I think this is a new adaptation of the book.

I love his stuff, but I still haven’t seen Last Night In Soho yet.

These are just overpriced toy stores now. More toys than games. They haven’t been a real gaming store for ages, in my opinion.

It’s been really good, I love the details and it’s been getting regular updates. Recommended.

We have a standard 4K stick and yesterday I looked into replacing the launcher. Unfortunately it seems that Amazon have stopped users from accessing ADB or an ADB shell making it almost impossible to customise it. It may still be root-able but I wasn’t that desperate to change it.

That’s the problem. I think Amazon have been locking the device down. Rooting maybe the only way if that’s still possible.

I forget his name right now, but I followed one of the writers of Bill & Ted on Twitter, he also wrote Men in Black. This was a couple of years ago but he showed a letter from Sony informing him that they still can’t pay any residual cheques because according to their accounting, Men in Black was still in the red.
