  1. Isn't that what The Doctor has been doing, for the last 59 years?!
  2. Interestingly, no-one has mentioned SLEEPERS. What have you got against CINDERELLA LIBERTY? What? What?! Don't wait for the translation, answer me, now!
  4. That's a spicy meatball! I would have liked to have seen a selection from THE PLAYER, but it's a pretty good distillation.
  5. Indeed, @Sweeping Strings. It's a brilliant film. It's one of Hodges' very best.
  6. Indeed. I rented that tape, very often. Me? Difficult? The thought of it.
  7. STAR WARS was first released in the Summer of 1982. It was panned and scanned. I don't think anyone prefers this version
  8. This is rumour control, here are the facts. I do not hate Nolan. In fact it might surprise people to know that there are Nolan films which I like a lot (INTERSTELLAR; INSOMNIA; THE PRESTIGE; MEMENTO). It's the ones that people seem to think are classics that I regard as excrement, and, because of this, JWfan seems to think that I do not like Nolan. Regarding BLADE RUNNER, Nolan knows (or, at least, he should) that there are at least 4 commercially-released versions of the film. The version seen in America is not the same as the version seen in Europe. The DC is different to those two versions, and the FC is different still. All I want Nolan to do is to clarify which version of the film he prefers. To say "I prefer the theatrical version" doesn't cut it (no pun intended). Now, I wouldn't mind if Nolan was some 20 year-old spotty, four-eyed, geek, doing some kind of media studies course at Solihull Uni., or somesuch place, when he said this. If he did, I'd pay him on the head, and tell him to read "Future Noir". He isn't, of course. He's a very successful, and much respected film director. Because of this, he really should have a broader knowledge-base. My goodness; from his remarks about BLADE RUNNER, it would appear that the average JWfan (if there is one ) knows more about the film than him. If he'd said "I prefer the original European cut", that would suffice, but he didn't. Nolan works in the film business, and, because of this, he should know better.
  9. @blondheim, you've taken your first step into a larger world Honestly, starting with "An Unearthly Child" is the way to go. "Edge Of Destruction" is the story where the principals start to come together and function as a unit. Bill Hartnell rocks You don't really need to watch them, at all. They are not canon, but that doesn't mean that they are without merit, but since they are not "official", you could watch them any time.
  10. It is awful. Watch the extended cut. It's a fracking masterpiece.
  11. THE MOVIE pulled in approximately 9 million viewers, in the UK. Although I didn't like it at the time, I am sure that McGann would, given the chance, have made a fine Doctor.
