Paul Thomas Anderson, Paul Verhoeven and David Lynch are still out there, philistines.

Who exactly was Moore talking to in the Northampton Arts Lab?

A Netflix series, Wormwood, covers this story from the point of view from Olson's family.

The Olson tale first got into the mainstream via the original source book for these stories Operation Mind Control (1978) by Walter Bowart. Another referred to in the book was the story of Candy Jones who cliamed to be a victim of the same programme – David Fincher was trying to get it made into a film at one point.

Possibly the thing I like the most about it is that the paper isn't glossy.

Well that's the best news.

Apart from some shot/FX and numerous audio changes that occurred even between releases in 1977, the crawl was completely redone and the opening shot changed.

For the 1981 re-release, the line "Episode IV: A NEW HOPE" was added to the opening crawl. While this is the most noticeable alteration, the entire opening crawl was redone. A new starfield was used, one that was made and used in The Empire Strikes Back, the "Star Wars" title is also from The Empire Strikes Back, but it fades out before the crawl starts. The crawl was reformatted for the music to stay in synchronization and the word "rebel" in "rebel spies" is capitalized, which was not capitalized in the original 1977 crawl. The Tantive IV and Star Destroyer were recomposited with finer border, removing some prominent black lines. More subtly, the lasers and engine glows were adjusted to fit and the moons are in different positions relative to the planet.

I may just have to read this, Jim. I've left it too long.

Having watched the first episode this has very auspicious beginnings and may turn out to be an example of an all too rare thing: a good prequel.

... he was a rogue and a scoundrel when we met him in Star Wars, it was only later as his character arc developed that he softened and learnt the importance of lurve and the rebellion

The film that ends with Han's idealistic young friend guilting him into saving the beautiful princess's rebellion?

I actually thought that mirroring of Han at the end of Star Wars and his helping mini-Maya Rudolph was the only clever bit of writing in Solo. *

Like you, I thought Solo was perfunctory, even if it's much closer to what I'd have said I wanted from a new Star Wars film if you'd asked me that question any time in the last 37 years.

SOLO is probably the most competently written of the Disney Wars flix but feels the most pedestrian in execution, though none of it feels like it’s a betrayal of the character. I’d find it harder to believe that Han was born a scoundrel and lived his whole life as one until Luke & Leia showed up. He was obviously someone who became more hardened as he learned to live the pirate life.

the Mandalorian looks good but I will buy on DVD because there are tooooooooo many subscription services as there is ...

The whole idea behind Disney+ is to get you to subscribe so content made for the service is likely exclusive to it and only available on it. It’s not intended for a physical release as they want to eventually abandon the format, as they all ready have done in some regions.

Listening to Ben Shapiro is like a bee going in and out of earshot.

We probably saw it round the same time Tords, as it freaked me out too, to the point I think I instantly forgot it until seeing a still of it many years later that opened the door of horror again. It's got that peculiar Peter Weir(d) Ozploitation vibe that just gets in on you.

Get ready to re-enter the Matrix.

Lana Wachowski is set to write and direct a fourth film set in the world of “The Matrix,” with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity, respectively.
