So sorry to hear this.

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 :)

Watched Mank

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.

Dr X if any off these things that you mentioned did happen we would not have a show and you could not SCREAM at the boxy thing looking back at you.

So I am to suspend disbelief to such an extent? Nah. If the production team can't be arsed sorting these issues, I can't be arsed watching. There is plenty of other stuff.

Surely the worst ending was Dan Dare?

(Oh hang on, it's not... actually... ended)

City of the Damned was really a proto-Necropolis.

Still not sure Dead Man deserves a ranking slot. Either that or Block Mania is getting treated roughly.

But that's the beauty of this.

Thanks Colin! I really enjoyed this.

How about ranking every other strip, not Dredd, into a glorious Top 1000?

Your Honor is a good show. As you watch it you will keep asking yourself the same question how stupid can each of these characters be by doing some silly stuff to escalate the problem

Gave up on Your Honour after I spent the first episode shouting at the telly.

"Stop the car you twat!"
"Take your inhaler before calling you idiot!"
"Go to the police. It was an accident!"
"Why are you risking your life, career and jail time?"

The premise is so incredible it made my thoughts hide in a cupboard until it went away.
