I'm so glad that when their time has come, US Presidents become force-ghosts.

He's definitely having trouble with his legs I think....

Return of the King - not for me.  'The ;aw is never wrong, Hershey.' Had Garth simply skimmed over the last few years, which was largely themed around Dredd's doubts about the system?

I read it as another ruse by the ever canny Dredd to gain Zombie-Silver’s confidence, make him confess to having broken his vows as Chief Judge by hiding and not protecting the city, so that he can then be judged unfit to hold office - which Silver is demanding he still has the right to as he never officially resigned.

Return of the King is a highlight of Ennis Dredds for me, and spot-on characterwise, and of course it’s Necropolis era Ezquerra.

Looks like that Rian Johnson trilogy is still a go.

They're trying nearly every trick in the book now to try and get all the pissed off fans back on board.   Increasing the budget, going back to the original type music and bringing in a well known game show host that has a female following to boost the ratings.

Not sure changing camera lenses to anamorphic is that much of a budget increase. If they did have a significant budget increase (doubt they did) it would be to attract a larger global audience, not to suck-off older males.

It’s only common sense that men have the innate ability to camp-it-up, but when women do it, it’s just bad acting.

Jóhann Jóhannsson's score for MANDY is epic stuff.  I've seen it unfairly pigeonholed as a John Carpenter homage, but its range is wider than that.

It’s certainly denser, more majestic and closer to the heavy textures of Vangelis’s Blade Runner which makes me more curious about Jóhannsson's rejected music for Blade Runner 2049 - which was replaced by Zimmer’s more Teutonic sound.

but there is probably an important conversation to be had about the spreading influence of China's corrupt and toxic brand of authoritarian corporatism to other markets, particularly given the oppressive restrictions on foreign investment that allows the Chinese state to appropriate intellectual property (including technology patents) from the West.

As long as we can sell them our wares no one cares.

Movie Star Fan Bingbing's Disappearance Raises Questions About the Chinese Justice System

The mystery highlights the opacity of Chinese justice. The use of so-called black jails has been ramped up across China since President Xi Jinping came into power in 2013. In August, a U.N. human rights panel said it had received credible reports that 1 million members of the mostly Muslim ethnic Uighur minority are being held in secret camps for “re-education.”

I thought the hyperbole and arcane knowledge of Statham's love-life gave it away.

Could you try not being so much of a racist in public?

Forgive the Prof.; tongue welded in cheek runs through almost all his posts. We wouldn't want him any other way.

Link Prime: your rather hysterical reaction suggests you're not much of a feminist?

Disengage your sarcasm filter.
