  1. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Newer films)

    Read a Justice League review today that said the 'take this movie away and make it funnier!' bits have been very obviously 'inserted' ... they mostly consist of the Flash making some wisecrack or other in front of a CGI background, and apparently there's another bit with Affleck lying on what is clearly fake grass.
  2. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Idiocracy - Mike 'Beavis and Butthead' Judge's satirical future-com about where dumbing-down could ultimately lead the world is a funny and depressingly accurate watch ... Terry Crews' porn-star/wrestler President only seems marginally less likely than Trump.
  3. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Newer films)

    I both 'don't matter' and am 'one of the finest members of this community'? I had no idea I was so polarising .
  4. The Doctor Who Thread.....

    'New teeth ... that's weird'.
  5. James Bond #25

    Damn you! I'll have you strapped to Goldfinger's laser-table, and mentioning Operation Grand-Slam won't save you!
  6. The Doctor Who Thread.....

    Not long after the regeneration, judging by what she's wearing.
  7. James Bond #25

    He is, yes. Thing about MR is that for every 'good' (Lonsdale, how Moore plays the aftermath of the centrifuge sequence/the scene at the bird-shoot, 'I think he's attempting re-entry') there's a 'bad' (Jaws trying to 'fly' when he accidentally destroys the parachute ripcords, Drax having been able to build a huge space-station apparently unnoticed, that bloody double-taking pigeon ... ) .
  8. Favorite Television Main Titles of the 2010s?

    Although Smith's second title sequence was too 'busy' for my liking, I like that it put the Doctor's face back in there for the first time since McCoy -
  9. Favorite Television Main Titles of the 2010s?

    Of the Who 2010s main titles, I prefer Matt Smith's first one -
  10. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    It was a Saturday night, I was having a few beers ... I wasn't looking for a masterpiece. Cut me some damn slack.
  11. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    The Bourne Legacy - quite enjoyed this ... once the slow-ish first half-hour establishes that this 'sidequel' is part of the Bourneverse, it gets on with what we turned up for - the action. And that doesn't disappoint.
  12. The Doctor Who Thread.....

    The high-waisted trousers recall Second Doctor Patrick Troughton. There are several little tweaks to the Tardis exterior, too.
  13. Am appreciating the much pacier nature of this season so far.
