  1. A false rumour is starting to do the rounds that Williams has had to give up Episode IX because of scheduling conflicts. No source to back it up (the first thing anybody with half a brain checks for when somebody posts an unverified claim).

    Venom (2018 Sony movie)

    $205 million on worldwide opening? Interesting, because even liking this film, I thought it would underperform. https://deadline.com/2018/10/venom-a-star-is-born-opening-weekend-global-international-box-office-1202478000/

    Look at the disparity between audience and critic scores. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/venom_2018/ How many languages have the term 'called it'?

    You guys are either going to think me insane or stupid, but I don't care. Venom wasn't a bad film, certainly not deserving of the scathing it's had from critics. It's no masterpiece, and its plot is clunky at times (something that could be fixed by extending its runtime), but I found it had a certain charm. I thought Tom Hardy did well with both Eddie and Venom. It won't change the superhero genre, and it's no Deadpool or Logan, but I still had a good time watching it and would happily see it again. It gets a 7/10 from me.

    And the inverse is true on so many films too. The point I was making is that you should trust your own judgment rather than that of critics.

    Stop trusting these critics and make your own mind up on things (not you personally, crumbs, but in general). I've lost count of the number of times they got it woefully wrong in recent years. The Last Jedi's reception debacle is a very recent reminder. I'd be more concerned at a Cinemascore polling as that reflects real audience reactions. In any case I'll give the film a chance, for better or ill.

    You literally just said that that because they used a Wilhelm Scream in a promo clip, it's evidence the film's going to suck. As for the second part, I'll keep seeing films to make up my own mind, thanks.

    Got my ticket for Thursday. The UK rating for the film is 15 - same rating that Logan and Deadpool got here. Given all the talk I was expecting Venom to be 12A.
  9. Slight tweaks to the previous piece of mine, plus an 'insert' has been added, a quotation of Shiro Sagisu's Shin Godzilla cue "Taba Strategy" I feel would have worked as Shin Godzilla's theme.

    Correct, especially in light of the tsunami and Fukushima disasters. The bit that made me laugh about that whole exchange was the irony of 'civilians must not receive fire' - because Godzilla pretty much killed those two people as it fled back to the ocean anyway.

    I would wager Thanos' deal was that he would help the Chitauri take Earth if they helped him find the Infinity Stones.

    With names too difficult so they chose the name X.

    It's this that was adapted by Akira Ifukube into "Mahala Mothra":
