    The Expanse guided me here, but I've found so much more than I was looking for.....

  1. Thanks AI - I know how out of hand conversations like this can get on some forums, but like I said, we’re all reasonable adults here! Yeah, Star Wars is just one of those franchises that seem to have run out of original ideas (and acting ability in some cases ). I did enjoy Rogue One though, seemed to breathe some new life into it. If we’re extending this to franchises, it’s gonna be hard to beat The Matrix for diminishing returns!
  2. I did wonder about adding this one, just in case anyone got seriously upset with me but since we're all adults I'll risk it ------ Star Wars. And now I'm actually flinching as I type, but bear with me, and maybe you'll find yourself agreeing with one or two things (or maybe you won't and that's fine too!). Before I go any further, I won't be dissing the original because although C3PO is a bit of a whiny douche (and why so camp?) the rest of it is still quite watchable after all these years. And it's got a young Harrison Ford in it! But after that it does go gradually downhill if you ask me, and in no particular order these are just some of my gripes: Ewoks/Jar Jar Binks - just WTF?? Liam Neeson - can't take him seriously at all in this Ewan MacGregor's attempt at sounding like Alec Guinness Hayden Christensen - 'nuff said There's probably more but those sprang immediately to mind. And I can't do with Daisy Ridley in the latest trilogy, to me she comes across as all jolly-hockey-sticks/girls school prefect, much preferred Felicity Jones in Rogue One. Oh, and Adam Driver seems to have come straight from the Hayden Christensen School of Sulky Acting. I've not seen the (hopefully) last one yet but I'm not holding out much hope for improvement. Feel better now I've got that off my chest!!
  3. Ooh, hope not - I keep trying to tell him I’m busy at work!!
  4. I’ll do my best to uphold the honour of the collective RAWarriors, hope there’ll be more opportunities to meet somewhere down the line It was quite a big decision to make, financially as much as anything, but we will manage - I’d rather be a bit poorer but happy, and that description of stress levels decreasing was exactly the same! He’s not retiring as such but might just look for something part time to keep him occupied (and stop him trashing the house!!)
  5. Aw that sucks Nicole, but I totally get why. Would have been great to meet up - at this rate I’ll be the only one waving the RAW banner on Sunday! To be fair, it’s a wee bit irresponsible of me too since Beloved has just decided to jack in his job (26 years service and the management don’t even seem to be that bothered he’s going, but at least I have a happy man at home again), but then this could be the only chance that Thomas (and Geoff!) get to meet me so what’s a girl to do?
  6. Somebody really needs to invent bleach for the brain!!!!!!
  7. Never seen that one - I’m afraid the title alone did for me. I always got the impression it would be some psychological, navel-gazing claptrap (although it seems to be of a more carnal nature), so, given your thoughts on it, happy that I steered well clear of it!
  8. Fun to do as well, although I’m beginning to suspect I’m far grumpier about the subject than I thought I was!! . Do you have anything to add Geoff?
