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

Basically the look she gives him at the end. The fact that he bought a magic trick the year before at Santa Cruz and can't remember how to work it (because he was taken then). How he has a good knowledge of the tunnels where the Tethered live (because he's been living there for a year). The whole thing with the mask (especially the last show when he pulls it down after his Mother smiles at him. Him being attracted to the man on the beach with his hands out. Basically he wants to join in.

The main twist was so obvious I was hoping there'd be another one, but I dunno about this Matt - seems too far fetched even in the context of the amount of disbelief you have to suspend with this film.
For 'Jason' to adapt like that in a year? I don't buy into it.

The comedic lines often felt like they came from a different movie.

I enjoyed it more than you Rad, but yeah, some of the comedy was ill judged.

Also, took me a while but realised that her Son is also one of the underground lot too. Nice double twist.

I totally missed that- where is it mentioned?

Help! / 80s / 90s TV Horror Anthology
« on: 25 March, 2019, 02:25:35 pm »
Dear Hivemind- I need your help in identifying an episode from a late 80's / early 90's horror TV show.

What I know:
Definitely a 'one-off' episode from a horror anthology series (likely from either 'Tales from the Crypt', 'Tales from the Darkside' or 'Monsters')
Definitely an American cast.
I am 90% sure it was a 'Tales from the Crypt' episode, but can't find anything matching the story on the Wiki synopsis or a YouTube video.

Two high-school girls are lured to an abandoned fun house (or amusement park).
They proceed through a garish maze by descending through tunnel slides to get to the next stage / room.
Near the end it's revealed that they were lured there by a vengeful female classmate, and they escape at gunpoint down a final slide - straight into a brick wall.
Memorably, there is a sickening thud and a leak of blood (from the other side) as they smash into the wall.

Ring a bell with anyone?

I feel very unhip right now, having completely gone back on what I said, gone into town and got pissed


With a complete Volte Face I was up at the crack of dawn yesterday morning for a walk around Glendalough with the missus, followed by a 10/10 breakfast in The Wicklow Heather.
Home by lunchtime and didn't touch a drop of hooch all evening. This being in your 40's lark is shocking stuff.

I'm fan-casting Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba.

Watching old clips of Jackson carrying on now, I see them in a whole new light and it seems completely insane what was allowed to go on. I mean, jesus.

It's like rewatching The Usual Suspects and noticing that Verbal was wearing an "I'm Kaiser Söze" T-shirt in every scene.

This was effin madness.

Glenn Fabry accidentally signed my comic to Glenn Fabry, then crossed it out, put my name, and then added in brackets "I'm going mad!"

I caught this over the weekend - a really difficult watch.

I'm quite taken aback by how little of the negativity surrounding Wacko I actually absorbed or acknowledged previously, especially around the time of the latter investigations when I was older and more aware of topical events.

I have nothing to add to this thread other than I've just contributed art for a strip in the Cor!/Buster special and I'm rightly fucking stoked. That is all. As you were. Etc.

Good stuff  :thumbsup:

I haven’t put a pull list together lately.... let’s do that for fun.

Yes, it is a bit of fun.
Sad to report that my pull list is currently on life support though:

Judge Dredd Megazine
Cinema Purgatorio (Maxi) - Read somewhere that this anthology is wrapping up in 2019, which is a shame. I really enjoyed it, in particular Moore and O'Neills wry contributions.
It Came out on a Wednesday (Ongoing) - Predictably, I'm a sucker for a decent anthology, and this is not only pretty good but €2.00 a pop! Bizarrely, its printed on the old style newsprint (keeping costs low I guess). Been a mixed bag so far- but far more hit than miss.
Batman / Maxx (Mini) - Love Sam Keith's work, and will be inclined to pick up anything he does. Seems like ages since the last issue (3) was released, now that I think of it.
The Green Lantern (Ongoing?) - Superstar creative team of Morrison & Sharp. Couldn't say no.
Doomsday Clock (Maxi) - Long delays and some head scratching aside, it still feels like a worthwhile read. Will see it out I think.

I also picked up recent issues of 'The Batman who Laughs' and 'Lucifer' (Vol 3) but dropped them from the pull list quickly enough unfortunately.

But maybe she's not small, maybe that other judge is just huge.

Yeah, ya gotta reckon the MacNeil Droid knows a thing or two about drawing Beansie.

Is the doctor supposed to come across as a sex pest?

It was the 90's, baby.

DS9 still holds the fondest memories for me - wonderful cast and arcs.
Would love to do a complete re-watch at some stage.

Time for Trexit?

Yeah - back in 2001.

There’s a lot of old-school 2000AD stories and art that I love but this is pretty much top of the heap.

It's just fantastic, and great that it has found an appropriate home.
Fittingly, the first and last panels could also sum up your life as a 2000AD original art collector.
