I hear on twitter about how awful CGI on Superman's mustache?

I was too distracted by all the other poor CGI and glaring plot holes to notice!!!  :lol:

What a turkey!

Flat, uninspired direction, equally flat performances, ropey effects and a excruciatingly formulaic and cliche ridden plot.
I'm really at a loss to find any positives-maybe some of the Amazonian home world stuff.
Worse still, it was unrelenting tedious-an utterly depressing and hollow experience.

Rock In Rio is probably my favourite live Maiden album, it even surpasses Live After Death in my estimations.

Dickinson returning after the long hiatus gave the band a real renewed energy and vigor and this live recording captured it perfectly!

The sheer volume of noise created by the massive crowd at 'Rock in Rio' also adds a lot to the live album.

Totally agree!  :thumbsup:

On a comic related note, I'd recommend picking up the Legacy Of The Beast comic book too-bit of a convoluted start, but I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes and the art is great!  :)

Here's a skit on the belief that Judge Dredd should be a Video Game rather than a TV series.

Why not both?   :thumbsup:

With regard to DC Thomson, it feels like they're stubbornly operating on a business model that's fifty years out of date, just because that's what they've always done. They've no interest in exploiting their legacy of classic material at all, they just keep on trying to appeal exclusively to a dwindling child audience with desperate attempts to remain relevant. It's really sad.

I am very grateful to DC Thomson for being one of the only publishers still making comics for young children. You can criticise them for a lot of things, but they would leave a massive hole in the market if they shut down.

One of the reasons the Scream and Misty stuff doesn't really work for me is that it is aimed exclusively at an older audience. I understand why, I just find it disappointing.

I got no sense reading the Scream/Misty comic  that it was aimed at an exclusively adult audience-if anything I found the slightly simpler storytelling implied quite the opposite.
Producing a juvenile comic doesn't mean it has to be so, well, juvenile.
I know, for I fact, that as a seven year old I much preferred reading Star Wars Weekly, 2000AD, Star Lord, Battle and (new) Eagle when it finally appeared.
I had next to no interest in The Dandy and The Beano, so one can't generalise what kids enjoy.  :)

To be honest, unless it had been spelt out on this thread, I don't think I would of made the connection with it being Revere from that strip a long time ago.
From what I remember, wasn't he a skinny dude with darker skin than the one we see in the latest Prog?

Thor: Ragnarok is as formulaic, insubstantial and exposition heavy as we've come to expect from the Marvel movies.
It's further handicapped by a poorly developed antagonist and a rather flacid climax.
What it does have in spades is some rather effective humour and some obvious chemistry between an excellent cast who bring their A game to bare and elevate the whole enterprise into something exceptionally enjoyable, resulting in one of the better films in the franchise.
Nice use of Led Zep too!   :)

*Although I do have good memories of three of us renting it on VHS and it only coming with 2 pairs of 3D glasses, meaning my brother got a headache during the 3D section. And you've got to love a film with 3D where the cue for the audience putting on their glasses is a character in the film picking up and putting on 3D glasses. Gloriously cheddar.

I've still got my 3-D glasses from when I saw it at the cinema. I keep any old tat.

Watching the first one in the cinema is one of my greatest memories of attending the pictures.

Still got my glasses too!
Glad I'm not the only one!!!  :lol:

Im not sure if I even watched that one.So if I get to it...

I still hold that first 3 are good,but  everyone has a right to their own  opinion.

It's really great!
Arguably of equal quality to 3 and far, far superior to 2!  :thumbsup:
