Joe Turkel, a brilliant actor in two Kubrick films, Paths of Glory and The Shining, has died. His Eldon Tyrell in Bladerunner was a magnificent vision of an indifferent Corporate CEO.

Ray Liotta was superb in Goodfellas and Killing Them Softly, and it's regrettable news to hear he's left us unexpectedly. Andy Fletcher, the Keyboardist from Depeche Mode, has also gone.

Vangelis Papathanassiou, renowned for his film scores of Bladerunner, Chariots Of Fire and others, has died. A brilliant composer, I feel his Bladerunner score is nigh unsurpassable. Unfortunate news, indeed.

Off Topic / Is Block Wars The Future?
« on: 10 May, 2022, 01:48:13 PM »
2000AD often predicts the future, and is the current world political situation similar to the 'Block Wars' of Mega-City One, but on a gigantic continental scale? America forms one block, Europe another, Russia a third, China a fourth and India plus Japan a Fifth block, all competing against one another for power, influence and resources. Are we now in a period of competition with blocks cooperating with other unions to undermine a third rival group? Australia, Japan and India work together against China's rising Pacific power, say as one possible example. Was Judge Dredd right in its prediction, and 'Block War, Man!' is the grim reality we face now?

Film & TV / New Doctor Who Picked.

The BBC has picked actor Ncuti Gatwa to be the new Doctor Who. We'll have to hope he gets better scripts than Jodie Whittaker received.

Of Evil Dead fame and recently he directed Dr Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, Sam Raimi is thinking about making some stories from Night Shift by Stephen King. With several films already made from this Anthology, you wonder if it might be remake time for 'Sometimes They Come Back' or even [groan] 'Maximum Overdrive.' I hope Sam Raimi does an original story like Gray Matter or I Am The Doorway instead.

Film & TV / Another UK Film Studio proposed!
« on: 05 May, 2022, 01:53:35 PM »
Will leafy Buckinghamshire gain a new Film Studio? With Leavesden and Pinewood nearby in Hertfordshire, High Wycombe, of Mayor weighing fame, might be the place. It's just along the road from me, so maybe I'll get 'ugly extras' work.
