Yes - some strange goings on in that Mario trailer but looking good to me (anybody remember the game Space Station Silicon Valley, I think it was called on the N64 where you possessed things?).

Time constraints meant I only made it 1/2 way through Metroid Prime so I look forward to trying it again now I have more time (and portability) on my side.

Plus Rogue Trooper! Yay!

From a scientific accuracy perspective, this is more like THE SHIT HOLE but do you know what? I kinda liked it. It's does not overstay it's welcome, it manages to give some character to four of the main cast (admittedly one of those by sole virtue of being voiced by Roddy McDowell) and the production design and John Barry score are both jolly good.

Plus, I love the fact that studios after "the next Star Wars" were given the likes of Dune and this with it's Heaven and Hell ending.  "We can't put that on a fucking lunch box!"

Surely you'd still get the pay out if your job was made redundant? Plus mortgage payment protection insurance normally kicks in (assuming you have it). I'm not sure if that's the case If you volunteer for redundancy. So check these things out as part of your decision making.

I liked it and Mrs Tips liked it even more. Not brilliant, and apart from the titular character lacking a penis, I can't think of anything new it brought to the table.

I thought Gadot/Pine were both suitably swoony and did in fact show some chemistry.

Mrs Tips liked the speed up/ slow down bits because, and she's not a comic reader, she imagined it slows down on what would be the image on the page.

So back to basics seems to have given us the best of the DC bunch so far.

Forgiven my lack of knowledge, but does the black berets mean those guys are Tank Regiment?

Another LOL. What is happening to this thread? :)

well what was the end of that sentence, Tankie? Please enlighten me.

Actually, don't bother. You're just a wind-up merchant and I've got better things to do than elevate my blood pressure trying to extract the smallest amount of sense from you.

So I read that BOLLO as Tankie typing BOLLOCKS! as a curse ("Drat! You got me!") because you pointed out that he'd ended up agreeing that police numbers do make a difference.

That wouldn't be offensive would it?

Everybody should remember how much subtlety and intent gets lost in online communication and instead of thinking the worst, give people the benefit of the doubt. They probably didn't mean that exactly as you read it. Shrug your shoulders. Imagine a lighter interpretation and move on from there.

The rest of the board, the other poster and your blood pressure will all thank you for it.

Genuinely laughed out loud at that. Nice to see senses of humour being retained.

I'm actually still waiting to see a full on army vs. Zombie herd confrontation in film or tv. That's with slow zombies so World War Z doesn't count (which is especially shameful as the Battle Of Yonkers from the book is exactly that). Where would I find such a scene/set piece?

American Gods

This is fantastic and certainly breeches so many TV boundaries with lots of nudity including erect penises. Swear words aplenty too but more than that it's a brilliant realisation of a very good book.
Only 2 episodes in but I am loving this.
Like Twin Peaks but with cock and fanny.

Only seen the first episode (TBF;TL) but I think I'll be watching it on my own because Mrs. Tips has an aversion to extreme gore.  I thought we'd get away with it in the Viking segment (the porcupine victim being almost goreless) but then the Odinisation of the crew happened then the full on hack and slash and then she was tutting through the remainder of the show.

But I loved it!

I think I've read a short story (in the Trigger Warning collection) but other than that, this is all new to me. So looking forward to more.

I right enjoyed that. Each everything said about how it bucked the trend in terms of finale (some writer must have been waiting for a vehicle for that reverse time fight sequence since they first saw bullet time in action).

But wouldn't a genuine time loop play out exactly the same every time rather than work through a myriad of possibilities?

I guess this was one of those "magical" time loops then.

Is the spoiler about the number of functioning eyes that the hero has?

Love and pixie dust resolves lots of things in Doctor Who these days. I've grown to accept that. So if you are going to do it, do it well and I think that one did. Especially with the revelation that the Doctor was somewhat instrumental in it (even though he didn't know at the time).

It's a drawing I did of the kind of sauropod I am.
