  1. It's on the internet, it must be true.
  2. Oh, those are awful. Wonderfully, gloriously awful. I actually heard about this before. Years ago I met two Hungarian girls while hiking the Camino de Santiago, and they told me about growing up in Hungary watching Star Wars on TV, how hugely popular it was, and the legendary dubbings. Too funny.
  3. Someone who has this should check the run time. HBO says the official run time is 71 minutes. If the leak is PAL, it will have PAL speed up and be shorter (probably around 65 min). This would account for the high pitched audio sounding "off". My favourite is the fake dubbing....they don't actually dub the audio, just have some "actors" read the lines over and you can hear the original audio in the background. The "good" ones will use different people for different voices, the bad ones will use one person, usually a guy, to read ALL the lines, male and female, child and adult. Got a lot of that when I lived in Moscow for a few years. I got to the point where I trained my ears enough that I could almost tune out the dubbing and listen to the original English track.
  4. It's a fact. On this subject there can be no debate.
  5. I have a bad feeling this re-release is coming soon. Need to sell mine on eBay for confiscatory prices before it's too late.
  6. Dunkirk. Zimmer's best score for a Nolan film since Interstellar.
  7. The film is the very essence of being politically incorrect, in that it had the temerity to accurately tell the truth about what was going on in Iran at the time.
  8. Do you really love it? Or by "love" do you mean "hate"? And if you mean hate, aren't you contributing to the hate? Because our hate has made us powerful. No, "Stranger Days" is a new Amazon algorithm driven show that combines 1995's cyber-noir thriller "Strange Days" with the 80's nostalgia of "Stranger Things." Why homage one decade and genre when you can do two and double your audience? I await you review.
  9. See, that's not funny. I don't think that's funny at all.
  10. I don't find BloodBoal to be particularly funny. Now AlexCremers...that guy cracks me up!
  11. You hurt Pony-boys feelings. Don't act like you're all innocent.
  12. As a semi-regular who posts on and off, I like this place...I think it's one of the more civil, informed boards like this on the internet, and I like, and respect the knowledge, of, most of the people here. It's well moderated (i.e. lightly moderated), which is good because heavy handed moderation doesn't seem to be necessary. So well done Jay. All that said, yeah, this place can be a little clickish (though most boards like this are to one extent or another), I can see where it might be intimidating to some less sturdy, or thin skinned newcomers. And good number of you lot have been around long enough that there are so many in-jokes to in-jokes that new people are frankly just going to feel like they're being left out. I've lurked on an off here for years, and the humour here more or less jibes with my own SOH, so I pretty much get most of what's going on, but I'm not sure how much growth potential there is around here without new blood feeling more welcome. But for the most part, this place is alright in my book, and one of my favourite little corners of the internet. But to newbies I'd say yeah, watch yourself...this place can be a little rough.
  13. Specialty is not the word you're looking for. Richard can go about his business. Move along.
