News / Re: Zenith returns in Prog 2050!
« Last post by Colin YNWA on Today at 04:49:03 pm »
Seriously why is anyone worrying about what other folk choose to spend their money on? If someone isn't enjoying the Prog at any one time why on earth would they continue buying it*? It doesn't make them any less of a fan of the stuff they do enjoy. The fact that they come and hang out here is surely a good thing as by keeping in touch they become aware of all the other stuff they can pump into Rebellion's coffers, trades etc AND they may well see something about the Prog that gets them reading again.

*Why on earth that would be at the moment escapes me the Progs on sparkling form at the moment and has been for some time - mind that's the way with the Galaxy's Greatest diferent people enjoy different things in it. Been discussed elsewhere of course.

That Zenith interview was great. I enjoyed the previous (grant Morrison) one from years back which has never been reprinted. This was far more poignant & touching than I could have hoped for!

I find it hard to understand why, if you're interested in 2000ad and its characters, you wouldn't be buying it currently.
It's as good as it's ever been and if you even read a 10th of what's posted on the forum surely your curiosity would be piqued? And it's not like it's hard to find a copy.
I rarely post in the prog thread these days (I buy my copy on a Weds and most people have said what needs saying by then) but rest assured, I'm a paid-up current era Squaxx and proud!
I've been buying it again for a couple years & disagree. About to give up again, not enough good content to justify me buying it regularly.

Hmm. It's* curious, that It is largely disliked by viewers here, considering how well it's doing. That being said, I've seen negative views elsewhere too, although overall it seems to have done well.

I'm still looking forward to watchig it next week.

I picked up the earlier 90s adaptation recently, and I've been watching that. I know it has it's detractors, (it is a bit cheesy in places) but I think it holds up pretty well. I remember finding the scene with Beverley in the old lady's flat genuinely creepy. My older hardened self is less affected, but it's still a great scene. And there's the infamous blood sink splatter earlier...

Bill's wife's accent is driving me a bit nuts though. Is that supposed to be English? What with my recent viewing of American Horror Story: Roanoke, I seem to be plagued with dodgy English accents lately.

*No cheap rubbish pun intended.

I re-watched the 90's It the other day on blu ray. The first half, the children's half still stands up very well whilst the second half drags and is marred with some over the top performances and a pretty bad monster imo.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
6/10 (just).
Overlong, reliant on too many slow motion gun fights with groovy music (I especially like the country and western version of Word Up). There is a lot wrong with it but it does have some charm. On the other hand I find it's basic premise difficult to agree with actually siding with the President on this one.
And there is a fair proportion is misogynistic script writing in the film that made me a tad uncomfortable and makes me wonder whether Vaughn slipped it in there (yes, yes, I know) when Jane Goldman wasn't looking or that she just let her principles slide for this one (I'm looking at you Glastonbury scene).
Nowhere near as charming and endearing as the first in the series but still a film watch and forget and far too long.

Announcements / Re: 2000 AD - The Ultimate Collection
« Last post by JaHawkDroid on Today at 04:05:37 pm »
Got payment collected for issue 4 last week but no books yet, could this be due to them delaying issue two for a week, also anyone got any idea on what the hatchett break even point is as the 2000adcollection has a hell of a lot of less likes and followers then judge dredd

I have no idea of the breakeven point, however I can't see them cancelling the collection now it's begun

Damnit didn't realise you where there Spikes. Would love to have caught up.

I think we missed each other at the 40th as well? But yes, will be grand to meet up at some point.  :thumbsup:

And going by online postings elsewhere, I too completely missed a good few folks that attended. I suspect we all passed each other at some point without realising, as tables filled with wondrous things, staffed by the ever-brilliant droids, captured our attention.

Similar to the TV series back in the day, the film's a very mainstream version of the story made to appeal to the broadest of audiences. Chase Palmer & Cary Fukunaga's version of the screenplay was much closer to the tone of the book and presumably would've had some of the True Detective vibe if it had made it to the screen.

"We've had a lot of mutant Halloweeners this year but you three are the BEST!"

I'm sure someone will remember where these characters appeared; the boys loved reading this story at the weekend and we had fun putting these together.

Nice Job - they look great!
