Off Topic / Is Block Wars The Future?
« on: 10 May, 2022, 01:48:13 PM »
2000AD often predicts the future, and is the current world political situation similar to the 'Block Wars' of Mega-City One, but on a gigantic continental scale? America forms one block, Europe another, Russia a third, China a fourth and India plus Japan a Fifth block, all competing against one another for power, influence and resources. Are we now in a period of competition with blocks cooperating with other unions to undermine a third rival group? Australia, Japan and India work together against China's rising Pacific power, say as one possible example. Was Judge Dredd right in its prediction, and 'Block War, Man!' is the grim reality we face now?

The BBC has picked actor Ncuti Gatwa to be the new Doctor Who. We'll have to hope he gets better scripts than Jodie Whittaker received.

Of Evil Dead fame and recently he directed Dr Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, Sam Raimi is thinking about making some stories from Night Shift by Stephen King. With several films already made from this Anthology, you wonder if it might be remake time for 'Sometimes They Come Back' or even [groan] 'Maximum Overdrive.' I hope Sam Raimi does an original story like Gray Matter or I Am The Doorway instead.

Will leafy Buckinghamshire gain a new Film Studio? With Leavesden and Pinewood nearby in Hertfordshire, High Wycombe, of Mayor weighing fame, might be the place. It's just along the road from me, so maybe I'll get 'ugly extras' work.

« on: 06 April, 2022, 08:26:47 PM »
The BBC has optioned to make a TV programme based on a comic. I'd never heard of Eve Stranger until I read about it on downthetubes, and it could be excellent news for other Comic book creators.

MGM, the home of the Stargate franchise, is now owned by Amazon. Will the bald Bezo commission more Stargate series, or have they got enough of those already? MGM has an extensive film library too.

Film & TV / New Star Trek Movie Proposed.
« on: 16 February, 2022, 09:30:12 AM »
Director JJ Abrams told Paramount investors the news. The last S.T Movie was terrible, so don't expect an enormous Budget. Wobbly studio sets might make a comeback, and he hasn't got the original cast to sign on the dotted line yet.
