It looks interesting, for sure, but by god (American?) script writers need to find some word other than "freak".

Dead impressed with this prog. I massively loved Grey Area's finale. Dredd capped Unearthed with a glorious last couple of panels, even though I didn't get on with the confusingly mixed tone of the strip as a whole.

I f*****g LOVED Captain Marvel. I expected it to be good, but wasn't prepared for the super-confident characterizations and pervasive humour. Not being an expert on Marvel lore, I didn't see the act 2 switcheroo coming, either. And Sam Jackson's rejuv job was amazing (Coulson's, not so much).

Oh also regarding Firestarter - I only just found out looking into the film now that it was developed as a John Carpenter film, but he got replaced after The Thing flopped. Now I'm wondering what John Carpenter's Firestarter would have been like!
Food for thought! For Carpenter on King see: Christine. Also very good.

Emilia Clarke isn't the best actress in the world, but I don't think she's as bad as people make out - she's great in that scene. I kinda wish the show had portrayed her more similarly to how she is in the books where she feigns naivety and uses her enemies preconceptions of her gender to her advantage a lot more - show Dany often comes across as very one note.
She's a woman in a lead role and will therefore be 'made out' to be awful no matter what her talents, but she's especially spectacular when she shifts into Dothraki or Valyrian.

The guy who played the nutso telepath in Night Flyers has been hired for young Roland.

Not a bad shout -- lots of anger to be tapped in there.

I've just started Revelation Space after trying it out, wow, 15 years ago and not liking it. Enjoying it much more this time around.
The Inhibitor trilogy ended up being my holiday reading. I really loved it, but a very strange non-ending. Apparently a few loose ends are dealt with in other novels?
Can I just shamelessly bump this? Are there any Reynolds aficionado's on the board who can help me?

For the first time though I got the ill-feeling towards Tilly.
I don't get it. It's refreshing that someone aboard a starship is as absolutely overjoyed to be there as any one of us would be.

I inadvertantly celebrated Paddy's Day by watching Patriot Games.  :-\

Watched the first one last night. It was pretty good, certainly good enough to make me watch the others.

New Hellboy trailer. OK, I’m feeling a lot better-disposed towards the new movie. Looks like it could be loads of schlocky fun, although I still have reservations about the actual Hellboy make-up job…
Ooh, yeah, that's better. Agreed on the make-up job.

Tharg should give the 2 droids on Dredd another go at it as that was a master class on how to tell a fantastic Dredd tale.
I doubt anyone here would disagree! :)

I enjoyed that too. Sonnequa Martin-Green and Anson Mount are both great. In fact most of the cast is pretty good.

But What. The. Actual. What. with the lens flare this week? Absolutely and distractingly off the scale.
It was egregious this week, I agree, although, I did like the audio and visual call-backs to TOS. They missed a trick by not smearing vaseline over the lens whenever Melissa George showed up. :)
