    Captain Marvel (2019)

    I'm slightly worried that this will lean into the 90s nostalgia too hard. I remember the 90s. It had some good points, some bad points, some 'the best we could manage at the time' points. Not everything needs to be brought back. We don't need to see a horizontal computer case with a CRT screen on top, with a dialup modem connected. If they want to make the computer look really alien, it'll be running Windows 3.1 instead of 95. It might have a Doom icon on the desktop. Given that Carol wears a NIN shirt, odds are that Nirvana will play on the radio. If so, it'll be Teen Spirit. Though we m
  2. "Sources say." Which sources? Are they reliable? What exactly do they say? Is there any proof to their words? Because I'm calling bullshit. Anyone can make up anything.
  3. Yes, those are normal household items. Did they also find knives in the kitchen, fuel in the car? I'm not saying I know the truth of the matter, but that's the biggest non-find I've ever heard of.

    The Star Wars Saga

    I flicked through, and I think you're right. Also, now I want to watch the whole of TLJ again. I had plans for today, you git!
  5. That's pretty cool. He did the Halo shorts too. Maybe that's where his strengths lie? In live action game trailers? Also, is there a cast list anywhere? I'm looking for one, but not finding it.
  6. In a thread about spaceship reveals on IO9, I came across this classic moment. Great stuff.
  7. Tolkien. Starring Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins. I'm a big LOTR fan, and regard JRRT as the best author of all time. As such, I really don't know what to think of this. There's certainly some interesting things in his life. I suppose enough highlights to fill two hours. But you just know they'll lean heavily on WWI being such a big influence on his work. It was in some ways, but there's a lot that wasn't. Was his son or any member of the Tolkien family consulted? Does it draw material from the Carpenter biography? There's just a lot of room for this to be a complete mess, and I'm nervou
  8. I reread their books over and over and over until I was sick of them.
  9. JRR Tolkien and Terry Pratchett. I love them both to death. They're my 1 & 2 favourite authors of all time. But I burned out of them a couple of years ago, and have to take a long break.
  10. Highest in raw gross, sure. But Mad Max 1 and Blair Witch were both created on shoestring budgets. They have to be far more profitable. And while I saw the first one, I have no desire to do so again. This looks deeply missable.

    Aladdin (2019)

    It's not Will Smith that gets me, the lava doesn't quite mesh with Aladdin himself. Is ILM too busy with Star Wars/MCU?
  12. Carmen Argenziano has passed. He was a Centauri in the episode Knives. There's a pic if you don't remember.
  13. Carmen Argenziano, Jacob Carter, has died age 75. No details about his passing are provided. It's a nice article about his life and career.
  14. There was a mocumentary in 2004, C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America. The difference being that it was written and directed by an African American, Kevin Wilmott. So it's not the premise, it's the predicted execution. Would the D&D version be better if they brought Wilmott or someone similar on board, or should the whole thing be cancelled before it starts?

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    Oh, bloody hell. I know the movie is set in the 90s, the site doesn't have to be too! Surely we've evolved past such terrible design. But at least it doesn't have frames, that I can see.
