Re: What's the last book you read?

"The Institute" by Stephen King.

A more satisfying, though quite similar read, compared to "Firestarter".

Doc Martin , 3.3, "Love Thy Neighbor." Love that show! :) I've really been surprised by how good it is. I kept seeing it advertised in the "Previews" on another disc set I was watching, and tried it on a lark. Now I have the first six series on the shelf, adding an another series (or two) as I fini...

I'm currently rewatching the X-Files. I haven't rewatched the series since it originally aired in Sweden. Time hasn't been kind. I loved it back then but now I find it very goofy.

Re: Animated: The Bad Batch

It makes sense to make another animated series while the restrictions of COVID19 are in place. It is a show that can be work on in isolation. Disney need new material to keep people subscribing and delays to live action causes a need to think of other avenues. My concern is them using the same time...

Re: Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back

Luke was a hero and one of the most senior commanders of the Alliance. He would get away with ...

A totally pointless change intended for the never-released 3D version. The change only introduced continuity errors. The shot is also not static, but it pans.

Re: Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi

Sorry for the DP... I've been a stark defender of the Special Editions and later changes. However, I can't defend the latest changes made to ROTJ introduced in 2011. The door to Jabba's palace is just dumb and Vader's "Noooo" ruined the scene.

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

I've watched it thrice on Blu-Ray now. A deeply flawed, unimaginative and hollow movie. Not as bad as "The Last Moof-Milker" (Tesla!) but still very bad. The ST is devoid of imagination. There were many complaints about Lucas's use of CG to create environments, but as long as they're are made well a...
