Film & TV / Re: Wonder Woman 1984

At £15:99 I can give this a miss till it's available to rent. The reviews have not been kind, and it appears that the DC Films Universe still hasn't quite found the right story path for its stable of characters. Let's hope Wonder Woman soldiers on to better fare and the upcoming Batman movie re-energises the DC brand.

Deepest condolences, sheridan. Your Nan clearly led a remarkable life to receive such a distinction as an MBE.

Miserable news about Julia Strain. She had dementia towards the end of her life. https://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/news/rip-julie-strain-b-movie-legend-and-penthouse-pet-has-died-at-58

Looks like a fantastic present. Myself it was beer, whisky and...chocolate—Merry X-Mass to the board members.

Well, the EU Brexit deal is apparently done. I don't think the ink is dry on it yet, but you have to wonder what the details are of course. It seems we're not crashing out over a cliff which I feared the more deranged amongst the Brexiteers wanted. That has to be good news for future relationships with Europe and the Irish peace process though it might be a mess of new regulations for small businesses. Not quite the Christmas present they'd want to receive.

There are 'Go' lights Green for entry, Red to remain outside the main Tesco Superstore Doors now. Quite big queues due to Christmas, Covid-19 and I suspect worries over the looming deadline for Brexit. Not much fun standing in the rain yesterday and I probably have to look forward to it again before Friday comes. A lot more people now walk on the roads around here indeed I almost ran into somebody in my car driving home from work. A lot more cyclists as well and I now feel I'm missing something if I don't have mask inside a pocket, ready to be pulled out at a moments notice. Hope everyone's feeling okay, it's a ghastly marathon we're involved in here, and the reports of a new strain of the virus are worrying. Stay safe as you can folksy!

It might be interesting to see how the scumbag Company uses the Aliens on Earth. Bio-Weapons for warfare were mentioned in the original Alien, or could an even more chilling 'urban pacification' or 'ethnic cleansing' role be considered? It might mean certain Earth regions being deliberately infected then overrun by the Xenos predators as punishment for defying the Market or as part of a horrifying social extermination campaign. Examining the cold-blooded indifference of the 1% to their fellow human beings would be good if depressing Television, very alien indeed.

John le Carré, writer, 89.

Graham Greene said he believed Le Carre's The Spy Who Came In From The Cold was the best spy stories he'd ever read and I'd probably agree with him there. Le Carre was a spy himself, of course, and knew the in's and out's of fieldcraft which led to such seeming authenticity in his works. A great lost to Literature.

Tragic news as Richard Corben is one of the geniuses of modern painted comic art, particularly in Heavy Metal Magazine. Awful news, just more conformation how shite the year 2020 is.

Stronghold had a good story and an interesting twist as one of the Aliens was rebuilt as a Robot. He worked for a complete scumbag who came to a nasty end so let's hope Marvel get some of their characters to take on those acid blooded Xenomorphs.

Ah that's sad. He gave us two of the most memorable bad guys in cinema, in the same franchise.

Yes, he played them both as monsters with little if any redeeming features. Very sad news I'll watch Mad Max again with a heavy heart.

I think David Prowse helped create one of the most memorable characters in cinema history and was a stalwart of many TV and film productions including several Hammer Horror movies. A tragedy he's gone of course, but the Force was with him when he donned the famous Vader suit, and mask.
