Donnie Darko

Never seen it before. For a film praised for being unique and innovative, it just seems to tick every cliché there is for an indie film:

- pretentious (check)     
- confuses mystery with plot (check)
- impressed by its own cleverness (check)
- but not actually that clever (check)

That said, its 80s goth rock sound-track is incredible.

I have ordered a Stainless Steel Rat... was worried I would miss out

I have enjoyed last Skip Tracer, and am really enjoying the recent Devlin stuff.

First ever prog was whatever one gave away a Buck Rogers sticker album.

But the first prog where I wanted the comic was 224. Judge Death Lives.

I am missing the most recent prog, but it always comes sooner or later

The Rite

There's a decent cast, including Anthony Hopkins, Ciaran Hinds and Rutger Huger, plus an underused Toby Jones. But ultimately this is a po-faced re-tread of the Exorcist with less spinning heads and more university lectures.

It suffers for coming to a natural conclusion about an hour in when its possessed character dies, only to realise it still has another half hour to go and not enough plot left to keep going.

It was... okay. But because it's the obvious thing to say: The Rite? The Shite more like.

Kudos to whoever came up with the "Bowel loosening" tag line on the cover. Genius, to tie in so well with the strip.

The last panel clearly implies a motive.

He now has "the chance to make good on what he came back here to do."

So he came back from Titan to do something. Now the SJS welcome wagon is out his hear, he has the chance to do it.

This person has been selling quite a few of these Charley's War Prints on eBay over the past month or so


Hold on. Is that genuine thing, being re-sold, or is it some scammer having the cheek to scan original art and charge £100 for it?

And if the latter, then the question is who owns the copyright in original art?

Food for thought, Milstar. But your serious tone is hamstrung by this beauty of a comment.

Lol. This post reminds me on a thread on IMDB, back when IMDB had forum too. In which someone asked if ASF is the perfect film for a father and son to watch together. Perhaps the best case of trolling I've ever seen :)

Tell me I am not the only one to do a double take there.

Started Returnal.  It's good.  Not £70 good though.  Although it is getting better the more I play it.

TBH I doubt there will be anything this gen that I find £70 good enough.

Thread should have been locked at this point. That is the definitive Dredd chin.
