They're looking to beat A Star Is Born.

Funniest thing is after decades waiting, Cameron finally got the rights returned, then sold it straight back to the same studio who made the previous one – Skydance Media.

I find the lack of love for Predator 2 disturbing. It's every bit as good as the first.


Some people just don't recognise good pussyface when they see it.

The Exorcist should've skipped one and gone straight to Exorcist III/Legion
Both RoboCop and Ghostbusters are subject to change but at the mo, yes, one-and-done.
American Graffiti
A Christmas Story
Donnie Darko
Repo Man

I liked Harrison on Stront. But it was Colin McNeil, at his absolute best, who ended it properly.

Love McNeil at the end but too little too late for these eyes.

I agree with Tordels - Cats is going to be a huge, baffling smash hit. One of those films like Mama Mia that is somehow massive, despite you not personally knowing anyone that has actually seen it.


Never doubt the everlasting power of ABBA.

Surprised nobody's mentioned Battlestar Galactica (original series or the reboot - both started off strong).

Apart from the odd bad episode –like the one that wasted Bill Duke as a gangster– I find the reboot still stands up very well from beginning to end. The only iffy thing is the intimation at the very end that Starbuck is a literal angel and just disappears while someone's back is turned.

Strontium Dog: The Final Solution.


If the majority of the art were different, I think there'd be more agreement on this.

You mean The Final Solution? Or the latter Stront stuff?

The Final Solution. Harrison's a great artist but not for the 'last' Johnny Alpha story.

I'm fine with the reboot, the resurrection and the final note the creators, and the story, go out on.

Who's to say that Season Two of Firefly wouldn't have been utter folly

We got the truncated version in Serenity.

I find this conspiracy a little lacking. George Lucas was paid and owns 37.1 million Disney shares, or 2.1% of the company, making him the second largest non-institutional shareholder behind the Steve Jobs estate, so he gets a huge amount of money anyway from the stock-earnings of all Disney owned properties. At the time of sale Lucas’s Disney shares were worth $1.9billion, giving the deal a total value of $4.1 billion since he took the rest as money.

In 2015 the shares he received were worth $4.1 billion, giving the Lucas film deal a total value of approximately $6.3 billion.

If George is still receiving a cut of Lucasfilm/Star Wars, I doubt it's significant enough for Disney not to pay him, and they wouldn't have planned Han Solo and Boba Fett films if they wanted to completely decouple Star Wars earning potential from the previous owner. Whatever future Star Wars has Darth Vader & Co. will forever be part of the content and the merch. Vader and the Millenium Falcon are now 'park rides'.

You're completely wrong about Taxi Driver, the story which, as a new reader, made me realise Megacity stories didn't need Judge Dredd in them to work. That's the direction I'd take the strip in once I let Dredd die

Or when he retires from Justice Dept.

I was seized by the sudden revelation that Giant (Meg 2.51), by John Wagner and Ian Gibson, and Lawman Of The Future's Night Patrol, by Wagner and Simon Fraser, are both reworkings of that Wagner/Gibson Blood Cadet story from the abandoned fortnightly.



It's notable that Dredd successors Young Giant and Dolman have stories and characters that mirror/invert the other.
