If you cut off the first few minutes and the last few minutes The Wonder was great.
I tend to think the last act of the film should be seen in a different light with those sections in place, so I wouldn't want them removed.

For me the Final Solution in many ways was the beginning of the end for me and few years after that I basically stopped by sub. I rediscovered the prog about 10 years ago and was glad that I could do the whole digital thing otherwise I would not have been able to return to the fold.
Almost identical story for me as well.

Given the abuse she's apparently been subjected to, I'm amazed she lasted this long.

The Wonder--Unhurried period piece set in post-famine Ireland. Florence Pugh is an English nurse imported to observe the day-to-day of a young girl who hasn't eaten in months. Very good, even if it doesn't ultimately dig its claws all the way into its setup. Brilliant cast, all doing excellent work.

So taking the bait…..two questions

What versions do you have?

And why do you need 5 different ones?

(The most I have bought something is three times).
I wasn't baiting, honest, just having a public word with myself. Original run, Titan omnibus, Titan omnibus again after water damage, Rebellion colourised paperbacks, and now this.

Just received my slipbook version of the new omnibus, and at the risk of providing this forum nothing of value, it's bloody great. Lovely look and feel, and arrived in perfect condition.

Instead of enjoying the background content, I immediately started re-reading the comic, so I have little else to say right now. I think this is the 5th time I've paid for this story. Unless they provide a free Alan Moore with the next version, this should be definitive.

The recent uproar over the D&D OGL is starting to look like it could torpedo the film amongst the fanbase, and I suspect it's not going to find much acclaim outside of that, so this seems an unusually timed move from WotC.
Amongst that proportion of the fanbase that both knows and cares about the OGL, anyway.

Got back on with Carrion on Switch over the holiday. What a beautiful game. Originally the lack of a map put me right off, but on a second playthrough I realised that there's no major backtracking required and the game does a pretty good job of leading you through its various levels. I would strongly recommend it to any Metroidvania types on the forum.

Went to see him when I was a kid. It was the first time I heard the word "f**king" on stage.

Likewise. Have a great time everyone!

Film & TV / Re: Henry Cavill To Star In Warhammer 40K Adaption?

I don't know enough of the lore to speculate on which era the series will cover, but I'm sure the local Squaxx will be very excited at the prospect of Dan Abnett writing any of it. I think there's an open niche for high-budget, super grimdark sci-fi. This could be hot.

Don't think he will be too upset as he is to star and executive produce a series adaptation of Warhammer 40,000 for Amazon Prime

Wow, okay. That could be hot.

Dynamite quote from that article: "Warhammer is akin to a Dungeons & Dragons."

I really enjoy The Witcher. I have no experience or affinity with the source material (never played the game, never read the books). Now, having been On The Internet for the last month or two, I find my experience of the show sullied by how much its showrunners must apparently hate the source, have been desperate to get rid of HC to shut him up, and want to rewrite the whole thing in their own image. Negativity, man. It's pervasive.

I'm a lover of all things Trek and the resurgence was supremely exciting. Things have petered out a bit. Discovery S1 and S2, I thought, were excellent. S3 and S4 not so much. Picard S1 pretty great, S2 one of the most disappointing runs of TV I can remember. Strange New Worlds S1 mostly brilliant. Lower Decks a constant joy.

I'm not sure where Discovery is going, it's lost its way. The far future setting is bland and the characterisations bordering on painful. I expect SNW S2 to be even better than its opener. As a full TNG redux, I hope desperately for Picard S3 to hit the right mark.
