I'm arguing the point because I believe in personal responsibility. If an expert handed me a gun, assured me it was safe and then told me to shoot somebody with it, I'd check that gun first. I hope you would too, if only to prove the expert right.

But how? By firing it into the air? At which point you have ruined the take and they need to reset the gun again. Which you test by? At some point, the actor has to fire the gun in the general direction they have been asked... And then they can only trust the expert who handed it to them.

Sorry I wasn't clear. I meant there's obviously some shitty PR starting against him

I notice stories about Baldwin being difficult and abusive on other productions are surfacing.

The fact it was very D&D is what I liked about it. Felt a very nostalgic pang watching it.

I imagine 5th Feb is good for me.

Actually enjoyed most of that.

It's not my kind of top drawer Tooth but you know what?  Sometimes even the normal prog isn't MY kind of Tooth.

ENEMY EARTH in particular stood out and the overall theme actually ties with the protagonists being younger. It's my kids and grandkids that will need to deal with the climate mess we've created.

DREDD had some good action stuff in it and we've had dozens of similar perfectly serviceable celeb parody tales in the normal prog. Grittier art and more violence did not make them better.

SCOOTER AND JINX has sooo many familiar elements and only one thing going for it - that are protagonists are "in lurve". Though goodness knows why after their cheesy introduction... Possibly the worst meetcute I have ever seen. I would not welcome this back unless it really works around the couple (as opposed to buddies) aspect.

Loved STRONTY DUG too though I'll admit I did get confused when gravity was in action or not at some points.

Nice finish to a great run of Progs.

I'm not going to add anything of value to the regened debate (I'm for them) other than to say I wish only 8% of the output had been not to my taste during the dark days.

I was lucky enough that money was not an object at the time so I just stuck with the prog even though there was barely one story a prog to like. But I can see how if something isn't appealling to you and you have better things to spend your money on, it might be time to move on.

Top stuff. What a run we are on.

Late to party but loved all of this. THE OUT and DIABOLIKS in particular. I also loved that both DREDD and PANDORA had similar "speech makes a robot realise it's true programming" moments. One used for cheesy drama and one for knockabout fun

Red Notice watched and enjoyed it. Over-the-top action and some nice humor but in essence better to park your brain in neutral.

Maybe I wasn't in the mood but even with my brain switched off this was more like SHIT NOTICE. Every aspect of it seemed fake from cinematography to effects to dialogue to sets to relationships. And how three normally likeable leads can deliver such flat performances is beyond me.

Yeah that was ok. Loved the Trollocks myself even if the order of some of the fight seemed a bit jumbled. But deffo took a turn for the better when the earnest dialogue gave way to character through action.

Bits of this are starting to make sense (though I'm not quite sure about the excellent and very watchable Jo Martin's Doctor leading an SAS squad) but that was quite a dull and jerky way of getting there.

If any movie should have shook off the 12a shackles, I would have said a martial arts superhero movie. But they played it very safe. The best scenes are at the start but the leads being pretty terrible people at the outset, the love story between Shang Chi's parents seeming false, the fights all seemingly on CGI backgrounds (e.g. the scaffolding fight would have been miles better in a real building site) and the final baddy being an unimaginative CGI horde led by a bigger CGI beastie all let it down.

Nice dragon though.

Unlikely unless Craig had a time machine.
