Great idea - we don't celebrate life nearly as much as we should.

Happy birthday, Mel! Loved me that Blazing Saddles and the rest!

Kill the City, not Dredd. Slowly strip everything away until only Dredd is left; the Last Judge, all alone in the lifeless ruins where justice, finally, prevails.

Dredd fatally injured, put into cryo moments before death. Justice Department tries to cover it up, representing Rico as Dredd. The secret gets out. Rico leads a coup to tidy up the Department but becomes a tyrant. The only one who can stop him, Dredd, is resurrected and fixed. Dredd kills Rico and everything goes back to normal(ish).

It seems to me that the whole Dredd run can be subtitled "The Decline and fall of Mega City One" so Dredd should die when the City does.

Oops - wrong thread.

Just story me, length doesn't matter.

Wasn't there one where Dredd jumped off his Lawmaster mid-turbo-boost, leaving the bike to plummet to destruction, and the bike says something like "Thanks a bunch!" Or did I dream it?

Same story, I think.

Holy heck - you're right. How come I can remember this and not my own 'phone number?

He should disappear in a King Arthur type way just before his entire timeline is absorbed into the forgotten dreams of a small, unregarded planet-sized geranium - except for the scorched left earring of Cassandra Anderson and the indicator arrow off Mean Machine's head. Then the space geranium gets eaten by a cosmic goat and there ends the Dreddverse...

...or does it?

Yes.

As with all things, only time will tell.

It's got a fiber optic wire trailing from its butt. I shouldn't think old Howard's too worried. Might explain some of Hammerstein's more unglamorous Great Gram'ma stories, though.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. What can I say? I'm biased. I love the MCU. Comic book stories told in motion pictures. Pure fantasy. All the thrills of comics (and then some) without all that tedious page-turning - like, who has the strength, right? The part of me that loves these films is the older version of the part of me that loved Harryhausen and Doctor Who. With that in mind, I thoroughly enjoyed this film from start to finish, all the way through to Bruce Campbell's perfect last words. Definitely one for the Multi-Play list.

Jovus Crust, they may as well do away with starships and just have teleporters or stargates instead. This has been a frustratingly Curate's Egg of a series. The lightsabre battle was ace, though.

Eccleston, because lots of planets have a north.

I've been where you are, Jade, truly. For almost a decade.

In the end I decided that waiting for the authorities to help was the biggest waste of my time imaginable and took control of myself. It's a very daunting thing to do and a very hard thing to do but I did it and haven't looked back. I know this doesn't help you much but it does demonstrate that there is a productive way out and I'm sure you'll find yours. The first step, in my experience, is to discard all thoughts of what other people might think your life is worth and to value it for yourself, on your own terms. Never forget that you are a being of infinite worth and potential and that the meaning of your life needn't be objective. One has to find one's own meaning and not give a f*ck about how other people measure such things (unless they chime with one's own views and needs, in which case simply fold them in to one's personal philosophy).

And congratulations on going to your model club, that's a Big Win for you at this stage.
