  1. Gritty is the term you are looking for. The very first chase scene with characters making multiple jumps, any one of which would have shattered all the bones in the person's legs, threw realism right out the window. Me? I prefer a bit more cheese in my Bond films. Maybe not as much as the worst Roger Moore outings.
  2. Watched the Muppet Haunted Mansion show last night. First up, what is the deal with Gonzo being the main character so often? As for the show itself, the musical numbers were mostly forgettable as was the show itself. Not the Muppets at their best but not their worst either. It was a good mix of Muppets and human co-stars unlike a couple of the movies that focused too much on the humans. It also really featured the scenes from the ride and gets points there.
  3. I didn't hear that before. 2205 is only 8 episodes instead of 25 or so? On the plus side we will get a US release that much sooner...
  4. Sometime in the last couple decades when fans started getting so vocal about everything. If the actor had died or gotten ill they might have recast the role. Losing the character will not have too large of an impact on the main story. From what I remember his own side story was not that important either. The bigger challenge is a new character taking his place, filling in that will be a problem. Time spent introducing the character and setting up some background - and then possibly messing it up. Hopefully the two writers of the actual books take part in setting that up. EDIT - ACK! forgot to say December is going to be a great month! With this and Lost in Space coming out. Book of Fett soon after that IIRC too.
  5. Finally watched the last movie and can sum it up as needing to dump all or at least most of the psuedo religous/mythical mumbo jumbo and instead have focused on the character arcs. The constant barrage of gibberish only distracted from what would have been a great ending. The bits between Shinji and his father were well done. The time in the village was well done too. The final scene was well done too, going from animation to live action, or at least from an animated scene to the real location it was animated from.
  6. It is a sequel (I think) so the flying cars were around in 2019 in the timeline they are working with. I also don't agree it is more compelling. The important points of Blade Runner could just as easily have been a fantasy story.
  7. The original movie took place in the far future of... 2019. So it is in alternate future territory
  8. December 1st for the final season and the teaser trailer looks good.
  9. It appears the two most directly involved in the last season of GoT are not involved in this so I'll give it a look.
  10. Clavell's works are fiction based on historical events. So don't get too worried about the actual history. Darn good story though.
  11. Well worth it to find it on video or streaming.
  12. I really liked the first one and it has aged well for a miniseries of the eighties (many of them have not aged well). Happy to give this one a look too though.
  13. Depending on what you mean by lighting the match. When the alternative is putting on a slave collar I can see his side of things.
  14. At one point it was "I urinate" when "I ruminate" was probably closer to what was meant.
  15. He had off ramps for all the characters including the main ones. In a way having Sinclair out (and knowing he would be out well before the end of the first season) allowed him to set things up for later seasons. Ivanava's replacement was the one character that didn't quite work out, a single season was not enough to give the new actor a chance and the need to finish off the main plot in season 4 left season 5 drifting along for a number of episodes. Felt like filler - which the show had really managed to avoid till then, even though some of the first season felt like filler there was a lot that was hooks for later. As for the show, we will see how much of a commitment they made, I doubt it was for more than a single season.
  16. Strange Machine must be REALLY bad. I don't think Palladium has a game system - suggestions of one at best. Though my quick look at the rules for the miniatures that came out a few years back looked good. Not good enough to buy anything but good.
  17. CB's opening reminds me a lot of the opening for The Wild Wild West TV show. Which was Western/SciFi/Spy show.
  18. The Muppets Haunted Mansion movie certainly seems to be hitting the right vibe in the trailer (and the famous locations in the attraction).
