: Forum’s Favourite Thrill - Anderson (Movie) vs Red Razors Rd 1 Heat 85
: Colin YNWA 12 January, 2022, 06:25:50 AM
We’ve DONE IT - the final week of Round 1 - well done. You’ve earnt a break after all this work … so to respect that there’s one less vote this week. Just the 7 - I know I’m as generous as Tharg. If things are going to plan I might keep momentum up and BLAST straight into Round 2… enjoy the break!

Important note this is just the movie Anderson NOT the main Anderson Psi Division thrill that will appear in Round 2 at some point. Bear that in mind when voting. Red Razors… well much has been said and I suspect will be here...

Which most rattles your thrill-receptors:

Anderson (Movie) - more info (https://shop.2000ad.com/series/anderson)

Vs.

Red Razors - more info (http://www.2000ad.org/?zone=thrill&page=profiles&choice=razors)

Just reply in this thread naming your favourite thrill of these two series at the beginning of your post (or use Bold tags so I can spot it easily) and say what you like about these wonderful stories after that.

Match ends early on the morning of Saturday 15th January and the winner gets a place in Round 2 (of 9!!!).

What on Earth is ALL of this? (https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=48011.0)

For those that need ‘um and can be bothered to follow ‘um there’s some simple rules (https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=48011.msg1070150#msg1070150)

Any questions, just ask as ever - and have FUN!

The only plus point for me about Red Razors was that the first strip Yeowell was on art duty so I vote for Anderson (Movie)

Red Razors was the nadir of Mark Millar's writing for Tooth and the Meg, and even though I haven't read the movie version of Anderson, she's still getting my vote by default.

Anderson (Movie).

I loved Nigel Dobbyn's art on the second series as well. There is the classic tale of how he hated the story too and so [possiblemisremembering] changed the last page to have the kid grab thge badge and shake it definately at the Justice Building [/possiblemisremembering]

Got that the wrong way round. The script had him wave the badge angrily BUT Nigel Dobbyn had him throw it away in utter disinterest.

I never thought Red Razors was as bad as it’s made out to be, so I’m going to vote for it.

I don't really remember Movie Anderson, although I know I've read it. Consider it a protest vote against Red Razors.

I'm sure the Anderson stories were decent, but I'm voting Red Razors.
Mark Millar struggles to tell coherent stories (both series here being a case in point), but he really does know how to create memroable characters and moments, and by gosh Steve Yeowell was a good fit. Dobbyn too, but that second story was so bad. Points for Dobbyn's punking of the ending.

Anderson. It was coherent and enjoyable, neither of which is true of Red Razors.

Second to last day of Round 1 here and so last minute votes welcome before we wrap up and move on. I'll tote this one up in the morning.

Anderson. The only good bits about Razors were Ed (unwisely killed early in the second series) and that last frame, which it turns out was down to Dobbyn’s disgust rather than Millar being clever.

Just found the most spot-on review of Red Razors:

The first story was produced as the Soviet Union crumbled in 1991 and Vic and Bob were the hipster’s TV show of choice, so perhaps it was briefly in touch with the zeitgeist, but that’s long expired, and there’s nothing to redeem the second. Genuinely, nothing.

I'll vote for anything that isn't Red Razors.

VOTING CLOSED

So Red Razors wasn't washed away and for me that is due to the art, its a series that is so were served by the art. Its also so of its time and my age. I loved the original back in the day when I was a daft kid, cos I was a daft kid I suspect and on re-read... nah. As for Anderson, well they'll be three versions of Cass in the 2 Round as

Anderson (Movie)

joins Cadet and 'regular', she knows you love her.
