Already got films booked for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of January! Movies!

    Shenmue 1&2

    Shenmue 3 in just over six months people!

    I had a great time with this too, although I'm inclined to believe the daftness was all pretty deliberate. Oh boy did it look lovely though!

    Ha, I sea what you did there.

    Doctor Who

    Alan Cumming was amazing in this - I also thought it was the best episode so far, which is saying something as there have been a few really good ones already. Going to miss it on Christmas Day this year!

    Doctor Who

    Am I totally imagining a vague nod to a classic Who monster or do we reckon it was intentional?

    RIP William Goldman - screenwriting legend

    Who are those guys?

    Doctor Who

    Loved that episode. The guy who played Manish, Hamza Jeetooa, has been my screen acting class teacher every Monday evening for the past few weeks!

    Star Wars Cassian Andor series

    Excellent. Superb character from one of the best Star Wars films.

    Doctor Who

    Brilliant. An important history lesson for kids and adults alike, with an hour's worth of excellent sci-fi telly thrown in. Precisely what Doctor Who was always meant to be!
  11. I saw this last night (straight after Halloween - 4.5 hour double-bill!) and loved it. Just listened to Mark Kermode’s review on the previous page and agreed with every word.

    Doctor Who

    Not that you'll ever hear me say "should of" myself, but - even speaking as an English teacher and an author - I'm a lot more relaxed about this kind of thing than I used to be. Languages always change and evolve over time, often simply due to a commonly-made error like this one. Eventually "should of" will become so commonplace that its place in the vernacular will just be accepted as grammatically okay, and a few decades or centuries from now nobody will care or even know that it was once frowned upon by English teachers and Doctor Who fans. Anyway, loved the opening episode, JW is great, the assistants are all good, the music at the end made my evening and I can't wait for next week's story.

    Rambo: Last Blood

    I love Rocky IV though. I'm well aware it's not the best Rocky, but I think it's probably still my favourite Rocky regardless. I was 12 when I first saw it in the cinema and it did something permanent to me. Poimanent actually.

    Rambo: Last Blood

    You should definitely watch Creed - you won’t regret it. And I’m happy to test-watch Creed II for you next month and report back to let you know if you should go for that one too. The Rambo sequels are all amazing though, even though they’re a far cry from First Blood. Plus I’ve got a feeling Rambo V might be just the Rambo you’re looking for.

    Rambo: Last Blood

    That’s brilliant. Unexpected, and all the better for it.
