Thank you all again. And thanks for the PMs. It's tough to keep away from here.

Thanks, for the good thoughts guys. I probably won't be around for a while but this is such a great place and my wife would often look at me funny while I would be laughing at something said here.

Take call all.

My wife and partner of 31 years, Ria. Suddenly and tragically.

Now THAT's an impediment, Cosh. Hope you find it. Check unused boots in the cupboard, it might have fallen into one of the.

Crikey, Sharky, you really know how to do things. No half measures for you. I cringed reading your escapades. Feel better, man.

Amazing work as usual. I'm always impressed by the talent around here. Maybe I shouldn't be given how great this corner of the internet is.

9. I know from (Lev.11:6-8) that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
This is only relevant for goalkeepers.

Masterful! Post of the week, as far as I'm concerned.
Front runner for post of the year.

Sad news about Achilleos. I loved his Doctor Who covers and would stare at them for ages. RIP.

Nah. It'll never have the same magic of the original cast and writing. There would be too much handwringing to make it work.

all crime is investigated retrospectively. so this is dredd coming true a little early. not only are the police now judge and jury, but implicit in this position is the suggestion that the police will now only investigate alleged misdemeanours committed in the future (e.g. city of the damned).
Maybe they didn't have the minority report.

Dune (2021). After an excruciating opening 45 minutes it settled down into a somewhat passible adaptation that, while the effects were great, had none of the striking visual flair of Lynch's version.

Surprisingly, Momoa wasn't as scenery chewingly awful as I expected. Fortunately, his dialogue was kept to a minimum. Also surprisingly, Brolin was awful as Gurney Halleck. Many of the characters were so thin as to be invisible really. RM Mohiam, Leto, Thufir, Halleck, Piter, Shadout Mapes, Yueh. Even the Baron was comically menacing. No plans, within plan, within plans here.

My hopes were raised at the end when Villeneuve included the fight with Jamis, but then killed it by not ending this film with Jamis' funeral and Paul giving water to the dead.

I'll see part two but I can't say I'm excited about it.

A couple of those gomers will become news reports ending with "...before turning the gun on themselves."

That would still be complicated, since we watched Peter Capaldi turn into Jodie Whitaker. They should just never mention it ever again.
True. I still think the Dallas shower/dream option is best.
