Film & TV / Re: ‘Love, Death & Robots’ on Netflix.

There is a range of quality in there and I think that they just picked an unfortunate episode to start with as it really is something from the mind of a 1990's teenage boy.

There are 4 different episode orders each randomly assigned to individual accounts.

Film & TV / Re: Last movie watched...

Narratively, I think we're supposed to think it's Anderson riding off on her first shift, but I don't think it was originally filmed that way (or at all really, hence the need to cannibalise other footage).


I don't think it was originally ever intended to be Anderson riding off – I still don't think it is (although it can work either way if you want while squinting at the bulid of the stunt-rider).

The shot of Anderson was inserted on a suggestion from John Wagner that he thought the film needed one more moment with Anderson before the end (presumably to leave her status a little less ambiguous) – which more or less confirms it was always meant to be Dredd at the end riding out of Peach Trees. It's also in the script that Dredd walks alone to his bike while the sound of dispatches from Control play-out in the background.

Side-note: there's a version of the film (scripted, recorded and edited) with Anderson as the narrator/point-of-view character.

Apart form the the fact it's stated she passed, there's also the re-purposed shot of her with her helmet walking out of the Hall of Justice that was originally intended to be used for a scene at the beginning of the film – which I assume is the shot that leads some to think it's Anderson on the bike.

Everything from how it ends (who's riding the bike).


Going by the number, and overall shape, of segments on the back-armour of the rider (4 segments for male Judges, 3 for female), it's Joe Dredd himself.

I take it no one has a problem with our Buttonman's deeply sincere request for Frank Bruno as Carl.

Not wanting to return to the razorblade era, I'll have to forego the 'pleasure'.  Was Jackson 'guilty'?  Hard to tell.  Are those who lay claims against him fabricating?  Possibly.  Enough to discard complaints?  Fuck no.

If you ever manage to watch it, and to the very end, it just doesn't leave much room for doubt.

Even the seeming contradictictory past behaviour of the accusers so readily fits the psychology of adults who were groomed as kids. Like a bullet that never stops travelling inward, the grooming just doesn't stop for them and this realisation hits like a sledgehammer when they eventually try to have normal, grown-up relationships and start families.

In both cases the background noise they long tried to tune-out becomes deafening; blocks out everything else in their lives and the malaise manifests as acute, paralysing anxiety.

As a result their lives completely fall apart leaving them no choice but to let it out.

It's not just the testimonies of the two men that are convincing, it's those of the extended families and how the realisation of the abuse effected them all and how they have obviously not come to terms with it.

That cannot be fabricated.

Film & TV / Re: DUNE rights acquired by Legendary Films.

What a terrible choice for a Swordmaster of Ginaz. Duncan is a lithe and wiry fighter, not some ape with a broadsword. This has Brian's fingerprints all over it. Sigh.

As an Exec. Producer representing the Estate I doubt Brian has too much power over casting the star of a recent billion dollar film that sold very, very well in overseas markets. Sounds more like a studio suggestion to help sell a weird sci-fi film to the general public – which is not a bad decision by any stretch.

This is going to be The Lord of the Rings... IN SPACE!, right?


Or Game of Thrones – like a fish out of water Aquaman dives in as Duncan Idaho.

The casting just went up another notch –if that's possible– by hiring Thanos as Gurney Halleck.

It seems likely to me that Harvey will have his own strip soon -- assuming he survives this one.

Or raher Judge Hershey's World Tour of Duty.

Seems like Harvey's story is another mini-epic in the making to test Dredd's beliefs that just crept up from behind, and as ever, it's playing out brilliantly.

Interesting side detail for me is that the story of Fargo's missing body, and his subsequent return, is public knowledge.
