  1. Although there's this... https://collider.com/terminator-timeline-explained/
  2. I haven't seen it but it does sound as though it suffers from the same thing that so much SciFi suffers from, that no matter how alien the tech (or in this case, language) is, our heroes can always fly the spaceship! I enjoyed Tron when it was first released but I re-watched it a few years back, and yep, it really hadn't aged well. At all. I didn't bother with the new one. I never liked 2001 - I found it really boring - but I agree about it holding up well.
  3. Spike from Buffy. And he speaks very highly of you!
  4. Right! Mind you, I am completely biased where Taika is concerned! (And he could direct me any time!)
  5. Thanks for the heads-up, Ariane, you had me at Thailand!
  6. Yeah, James Marsters is super-cool!
  7. Oh my goodness, you are so right! I'd want Taika Waititi directing, though.
  8. Bit like the Terminator films, then! Totes!
  9. I just looked at the guest list - sooo cool that Torchwood is still doing the rounds. I used to go to all the Torchwood cons, and they were so much fun! Looks like a great lineup (assuming none of them cancel!).
  10. Tom should make a movie of it... playing the guy who impersonated him!
  11. My worst film used to be Lost in Space, after all, with Gary Oldman and William Hurt (plus a young Jared Harris) in the cast, you'd expect something good, right? Wrong. The film was beyond dire. I can't even begin to list its crimes against good cinema. As I said, it used to be the worst film I'd ever seen, until Avatar - an unjustifiably over-hyped film of unparalleled thinly-veiled woncey pseudo native American drivel. In addition, the powers that be couldn't even be bothered to come up with a decent name for its maguffin. Unobtanium? ORLY? Far too much of the budget was spent on Buzzwordium and Wishalloy, and not enough on Sriborium and Bardolite. And then.... and then.... along came Wonder Woman. Now, the thing is, I know that DC films (barring the first two Dark Knights) are inevitably terrible (needless to say, I didn't even bother with Suicide Squad), so why did I take a punt on Wonder Woman? Ever the eternal optimist, I guess. Plus, even people who weren't keen on DC stuff told me it was a great movie, and like a fool, I trusted them. I wish I hadn't. I wish I'd trusted my instincts. I'll never get back that wasted time. Like Black Panther and Jodie Whittaker's Doctor Who, Wonder Woman was nothing more than an overly-hyped ham-fisted attempt at box-ticking, with almost nothing of any substance to justify the time and money spent on it. At least with Black Panther, most of the visuals were up to spec (discounting the tacky-fleece-blankets-that-are-really-shields).

    Face Off

    In Ghana, the cinemas generally can't afford to license film posters and other p-mats, so they get local artists to paint the posters etc., instead. Given that most of the time, said artists haven't seen the films (nor their official posters), and that blurbs can lose a lot in translation, the resultant posters are often.... interesting. I've just come across this gem, and felt compelled to share it with you all! This is one of the better ones - it is at least almost on point! (Please note, I am not in any way mocking anyone's artistic ability; I'm just often amused by the results. In fact, Ghanaian cinema art has become highly collectable of late!)
  13. 'Woody'? Aww, G-Man, how cute! That FBI story, crikey! Quite apart from the illegality, I honestly don't understand how anyone could have the gall to do something like that. Which is probably a contributing factor as to why I'm not a criminal mastermind.
  14. OMG... I didn't even think of that! It's such a shame that you can't be. If it does happen, expect Skype calls! What can I say, I do inadvertent strumpetry in style! Clearly, you are a very good teacher, my friend!
  15. Hearing the theme tune in my head now!
  16. I shall endeavour to get there but I won't know until closer to the date - finances are a bit tight at the moment. It would be beyond amazing to have (a) RAW Meet! (Yes, I know, I know - @Enaira and I have already chuckled over this!) Y'know what would be cool? If we rented an AirBnB between us!
  17. I know exactly what you mean. In one of the groups that I'm in, there are soooo many posts about Chrisjen's swearing. Apparently, it makes her less 'classy' (I frelling loathe that word, it's so gorram tacky!). There seems to be a stubborn refusal to understand why she swears so much. Nor that she's going through some stuff. And no one even mentions the fact that everyone else is swearing, too. No, it's all about Avasarala. And when it's not about her swearing, it's about Arjun. I like him. In fact, I'd even go as far as to say I prefer MB to BG. I honestly haven't noticed an increase in the sweariness, though. Whether it's because I've read the books, or my copies of S1-3 aren't censored, I don't know but I didn't think it was in any way excessive. TBH, I was surprised there wasn't more of it! In that FB group (the one for the show that I'm in, not the book readers one), there's a very religious woman, who keeps sharing a link to an illegal pirating app, which cuts out scenes containing swearing, nudity, violence, etc. I imagine S4 was very short for her!
  18. Wishing everyone an utterly stonking 2020.. full of love, laughter, and many other things that make you happy! xxx

    Looks fine from where I'm sitting.
  20. I tried to watch it, via a VPN, and it wouldn't let me, despite trying several countries. Weirdly, Arte would let me watch every other programme on its channel! I find the whole concept of people having smokers in their family really weird. And even weirder that they would be so... creative! I totally get that - some people are just icked out by feet. I'm not (unless they are grim!) but I do understand that some folk just aren't used to seeing bare feet, and feel uncomfortable about it. I'm pretty much the opposite; seeing people wearing shoes indoors seems really odd to me. That's such a shame, maybe if they watched it, they'd learn something. Or perhaps they're scared to because then they might have to do some self-reflection!
  21. I'm glad to see Johnny Cash on that list! I could almost be persuaded by Amy Winehouse* but the rest, can't say I'm keen! *(Fun fact; her ex, Pete Doherty lives around the corner to me. He's always off his face!)
