Thanks for the sentiment.

That's not the reason I don't want to come here anymore tho.

Damn! Good find. Do the lights and sounds all work? What surprised me the most was that the 20+ year old demo batteries had not only not leaked but still had enough charge in them to operate it. After only about a week or so tho they were clearly no longer up to the task so I swapped them out and i...

Well I finally managed to pick this thing up - MISB no less - for a non-stupid price.

I'm sure Love & Monsters has it's fans too. Or Fear Her. That still doesn't make them good.

And if the story was indeed intended to be an abortion allegory like the review you linked states, it also was handled very poorly - a sentiment a lot of the comments on the review agree with.

Well they're definitely going to do something . I just hope it's better . And just sticking on the writing side of things, I believe RTD himself said that he'd never let someone like Pip & Jane Baker write a script for the new series, but if they could let something as abysmal as Kill the Moon enter...

There's a big difference between simply accusing men of being chauvinistical, and actively putting them down on the account of being men.

“The Sun Makers” is a perfect example of ‘shameless finger pointing without any sense of irony’, and it’s over 40 years old. The Sun Makers didn't have a companion just walk up to the villain and tell him to sod off because he's a filthy capitalist or something. Having characters go on random outbu...

How would you rank it against Predator 2? ...is actually a terrible question since I like Predator 2, some of the reasons might even count as negatives for others. For example, the movie takes place in the then-future year of 1997, which dates the movie horribly, but I like it because it gives the f...

I mean, the original Zygon story commented on the contemporary energy crisis and ended with the Loch Ness Monster trying to eat Maggie Thatcher. The 2015 variant wasn't really that much more agenda driven. And that's a story from one of the more detached eras of Who, when you get into the Pertwee o...

Yeah.

Honestly never liked that rubber hose. I think the original came with a hollow tube, but this reissue came with a solid rubber cable that was so stiff that Prime could've lifted Roller just by holding the the other end.

I saw Maz's comment over at TFW about how the fuel hose on his New Year's Convoy reissue had disintegrated, so I took mine out of the box to treat the rubber parts...only for the fuel hose on mine to fall into pieces as well. :wall:

Considering the guy's scenes were removed from the final film, getting worked up over them anyway is just silly.

Saw 2001: A Space Odyssey on the big screen! Big deal had been made out of the fact that there's a newly restored 70mm print in circulation, hence the theatrical re-release...so I was already in for a disappointment because Finnish cinemas no longer have film projectors so all we got was a digital c...

I think most people would rather forget Steel, including Shaq himself. :p

But I was thinking more in lines of Spawn and Blade.

So I got the super colossal Tyrannosaurus Rex made by Mattel. It's been sitting in the HLJ private warehouse for two months because, well... It only cost like 50-60 euro which wasn't so bad, but the shipping was more than the toy itself, and then I got slapped with customs on top of it, so the whole...

...I read Batwoman. So, I'm paying for some of that shit. I like that they just have her as a gay character and its not a big deal. That's exactly it - when you treat an anxiliary character trait as exactly that, few will people care. But when you have a character who only seems to function as the ...
