Attempting the impossible by sitting through ALL of the late great Sir Roger Moore's 007 films (for the record, "Live and Let Die" is my least favourite while my favourite is a tie between "For Your Eyes Only" and "A View to a Kill" ).


Love "Live and Let Die", great theme track by Paul McCartney.. Its a bit weird but that's up my street.

Never could see attraction of Twin Peaks so much other new stuff to see and appreciate its waited this long, it can wait a little longer in my book.

Really? No one?

I'm curious to see it, but I think it's on something we don't have (Netflix?).

That said, I loved the original series and even bought the CD of the music, but I think it lost its way, as so many series do - and I never saw 'Fire Walk With Me', so I've probably got some catching up to do anyway.


Season 1 is great and the beginning and end of season 2 is also great. I don't think you need to worry yourself about rewatching all 30 episodes, but I would however recommend you watch Fire Walk With Me. After watching the first 4 episodes of the new stuff its readily apparent that FWWM is required viewing. That suits Charity just fine she wants to watch this, but not go through every episode again.

Watched Oscar-nominated 'La La Land'. How did this get nominated for an Academy Award I ask? Yawn.

I've been wondering about that one as I didn't mind Ryan Gosling in the movie 'Drive', he's also to be the new Replicant hunter in the Bladerunner sequel 'Bladerunner 2049'. However you have confirmed my suspicions, it's no doubt another utterly tedious hollywood love story which would have been great for the people in the movie getting paid but utter boredom for the actual audience.

Thank you, I'll save myself the time.

Hmm watched 2012 version of Dredd with Karl Urban..

Amazing? Well it passed the time, for me it lacked much of the original concept of the original and to me felt a bit of a 'mish-mash' of Miami Vice and Doom. (with less humour) Yes Dredd keeps his helmet on all through the film! But I think the '95 effort has more re-watch appeal than this offering and felt more Dredd-ish ultimately in my opinion.

Visually it looked good albeit a bit low budget. The drug induced visions , did add an interesting dimension but not enough in a good way to bring me around to loving this. Yes, I know that the first film wasn't perfect either but on a commercial note it fared much better. This 2012 incarnation seemed too obsessed with making it a gratuitous violent affair. Give me the Angel Gang, Rico and Griffin over some non-descript drug baron any day! Whereas the former seemed to maintain a purer aspect to the comic if you can get around the fact that Dredd takes his helmet off 10 minutes in. Personally I also have no problem with Stallone's acting, he's fine in that role.


Hooray, someone who felt the same way I did about that film. I enjoyed it but for me Urban was a low point compared with the Stallone version. The Stallone movie had so much more in it. (Not to mention one of the ABC Warriors added into the story for extra value). The sets where more lavish and it really felt just like the 2000AD comics had come to life. My only gripe with the 1995 film was that it wasn't long enough but then that's normally the sign of a good film. People had an issue with Stallone removing the helmet but I didn't. So what, was all I had with that. Sure in the comics there's even a scene where Judge Dredd is having a bath with his helmet on but I always took it that Dredd in comics focused on the man in action, not his private life. The 1995 movie added a bit more to the character for me. The Urban film seemed to confine the character to bare essentials.

If it's anything like the original, it would take a Federation mind reprogramming to get me anywhere near it. Hours and hours of utter boredom and in the end I didn't really care who killed little miss Laura Palmer as I had absolutely no love or emotional attachment to the character. That said I couldn't make it to the end as it was just SO BORING. So to rehash that again would border on torture and my only thought when I saw this new remake popping up was: 'WHY??????'

I've been wondering what this effort funded by Cyndi Lauper is like.

Can't be that much of a coincidence, he had nothing to do with the Force Awakens and that's the worst of the bunch! Oops


I disagree, my ranking for the Star Wars films goes as follows: Episode V, Episode IV, Episode VI, Rogue One, The Force Awakens, [Don't even bother with I, II or III just watch Rogue One instead].
For Episode IV, V and VI, I also only watch the original films on Laserdisc(Definitive Edition), the new remasters are terrible and cheapened 3 of the finest Space Opera movies ever made.

I'd rank them V, VI, III, IV, II, I, VII. Not seen Rogue one, yay let's remake ANH and then lets do a prequel to ANH! UGH. TFA ruined my love of Star Wars, lazy writing, lazy characters and loads of wasted opportunity (Mark Hamill agrees check it out on the YouTubes)

I do however have the Rifftrax to Rogue One and will get around to it soon so I can hear my MST3K boys over it. I prolly won't see these flicks at the movies anymore, but I will watch them if RiffTrax does commentaries for them.

But hey I know I'm in the minority here and people like what they like its all good. I do get a bit venomous and grumpy about Star Wars at times Oops

LOL. Now there's a refreshing take on Star Wars. Talk about unexcited.

What do you think I'm watching tonight? Smile I've even done a "Let's Play" of the video game (released in 1992 for the NES and Sega Master System - I had the Master System, so that's the version I did).

I feel like Rogue One cancels out I, II, and III also.

More CGi Enhanced episodes of Classic Trek

The Ultimate Computer... great stuff.. The CGI is nicely done and quite subtle

"Dumb and Dumber", a classic comedy and one of three movies that codified Jim Carrey's career (the other two being "The Mask" and "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective", all of which were produced back-to-back and released in the same year - 1994) - my, I haven't laughed so hard since I first saw an edited version on ITV in the late 1990s... and now that I'm seeing the uncut version for the first time, I think I'm going to suffer the same fate as the weasels from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" Smile

Yes !! A real credit to the whole franchise. Unsure
You lose absolutely nothing from the originals, yet gain so very much in audiovisual quality, the amazingly vibrant colours and all the gorgeous, yet sympathetic CGI special effects.
I agree with the commentary on there, that this is the vision that the original producers wanted, but due to the technology of the time couldn't have.
A must for any genuinely serious Trek aficionado !!

FA Cup Final.

I was hoping for an exciting match, but twenty minutes in, only one team has shown up.

Ealing Studios Classic from '49

Kind Hearts and Coronets, great build up and plot. Superb!

Sometime the older films are the best Smile
