More importantly what the heck is ‘folk horror’?

My new local boozer.


The Slaughtered Lamb?

About 40% more 'rural'.
But they do a decent Guinness and have a fire going most nights, so just call me Doc Hollywood and be done with it.

I read very few superhero genre comics this year, but this was one of them and pretty freakin great to boot.

Delighted that there's a sequel planned for 2019.

Most significent comic of the haul is clearly though Batman The Maxx 1 its just glorious to have the Maxx back and while Sam Keith doesn't seem to nail Bats as I imagine him all of the you realise it doesn't matter as he nails Batman as Sam Keith would imagine him and before you know it your bought in and snuggled back into this fantastic world of crazy.

Really admire Sam Keith's work.
Had to pick this one up.

Christmas Prog line-up looks great.
Will be a treat having the much missed Dom Reardon back in the Prog (assuming he is indeed returning for the final Caballistics, Inc. story).

Yes, I still watch this show, and last night's episode was particularly cringe worthy.

I would kindly ask a generous UK boarder to froward me a collectors item 1st issue of "M.C Go-Go" as soon as they flood the shelves of WH Smith.

Now I've hit my 40's I find I'm starting to curb my nerdy ways.
The monthly comic pull list is a shell of its former glut.
No longer is a TV show or film given the benefit of the doubt simply because of the genre.
The Loot Crate subscription has long been cancelled.
Video game 'day one' purchases are no longer a concern at all.

No doubt finances are a factor here (I will be paying two mortgages until at least early 2019), but definitely a change in attitude too.

And yet. And yet.
There is a certain compulsion that draws me towards random purchases of otherwise useless tat.
It may end up gathering dust on a shelf. It may end up in a drawer, but Grud help me- I have to have it.

Anyone else afflicted by this seemingly intermittent bout of pure madness?

Recent items on my list of curios:

- Playmobil 'Stay Puft Marshmallow Man'. Status: Purchased. Already in a drawer.
- Lego City Pizza Van. Status: Purchased. Built, but already packed away with Lego collection.
- 'Twinkie the Kid' Funko Pop. Status: Ordered from Zavvi.
- Garbage Pail Kids "Oh the Horror-ible" card set. Status: Purchased on Ebay and in the post. NB- Postage was twice the cost of the cards.
- Super Mario Brothers pajamas by Pennys. Status: worn to bed last night.
- Classic Twilight Zone (black and white) action figures. Status: Looking online for a price that will allow me to sleep at night.

Probably my least favourite is First Contact.

I accept almost all of the criticism for First Contact, but 10 seconds of footage of The Defiant taking on a Borg Cube buys you a free pass to most rides in my carnival.

Tales from the Crypt (1972) and The Vault of Horror (1973)

That the 'Double Feature' Blu-ray, Hawk?
Picked it up a few months ago cheaply enough on Amazon, a collection essential.


Kirk v. God


Classic oxymoron.

I watched Mandy last night.

Quite a difficult film to digest- unless you can handle copious amounts of LSD that is.
I've been mulling over different interpretations today, and so far nothing quite fits comfortably.
A basic, formulaic plot, but with stylistic and often bewildering overtones.

I will admit some bias before watching it- didn't think I'd enjoy it simply due to Nicolas Cage being the lead.
But he was great.
Solid performances all round in fact, including scene stealing turns from Richard Brake, Bill Duke and the haunting Andrea Riseborough.

It's a rare recommendation twofer; a modern horror and a Nicolas Cage movie.

Defoe has never been a personal favorite, but will continue the tradition of monochromatic beauty it seems.

"Ask me about my Halo-Tits agenda"

Final comment on this thread for me- irregardless of all other perceived issues / absolute nonsense (pick your preference), I'd genuinely love to see the venerable Gibson Droid return to 2000AD.

Maybe even another successful Dredd collaboration with the acclaimed Rennie Droid.

TordelBack sums up my thoughts on the cover. I’m not that fussed about it as a stand-alone image, but it works very nicely as a cover.

It does. Previous doubt rescinded.
