If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

Yeah, if there are two ways of resolving a story, RTD almost inevitably chooses the most outlandish possible. The Season 2 Finale wasn't so bad until he went and brought the Daleks into it (RTD loooooooooooves his Daleks), but all the others have had some pretty doofy resolutions and conclusions.

At the same time, I think that's a flaw of RTD writing "Grand". In smaller, more intimate settings such as Midnight and Waters of Mars, the man makes my jaw drop.

Also, he has a tendency to kill off villains that would have been absolutely incredible as reoccurring characters. The Dalek Emperor, The Cult of Skaro (Which did manage to make it to a second appearance before they were all promptly killed off), The Family of Blood (Seriously. Why would you get rid of Time Jumping, Body Hopping Hunters?), and especially Miss Hartigan. Even removing the Cyberman element, that woman would have made a formidable opponent for the Doctor. Just free her from Cyber Control, give her a Dalek Temporal Shifter, and BOOM! You got yourself a new foe for the Doctor to deal with from time to time.


That really is the problem with NuWho...not enough reoccurring original threats. The Weeping Angels were a start, but I'd like to see more.

With 'The Next Doctor', RTD panned the ending as early as the BBC commentary released later that night. His revised idea he came up with after filming basically involved her feeling sorrow over her actions and warping the Cyber King into the time vortex to be destroyed. Certainly a hell of alot better then 'she screams, everyone randomly explodes like balloons'.

http://doctorwhotv.c...eboot-28713.htm

QUOTE
We can all breathe a sigh of relief now. Steven Moffat has decided to set the record straight on the Doctor Who movie and flat-out rubbishes everything David Yates has talked about.

Moffat said on Twitter today: ?To clarify: any Doctor Who movie would be made by the BBC team, star the current TV Doctor and certainly NOT be a Hollywood reboot.?

Moffat then added:?David Yates, great director, was speaking off the cuff, on a red carpet. You?ve seen the rubbish I talk when I?m cornered.?

Moffat elaborated: ?[Doctor Who] is a vitally important BBC brand with a huge international audience [that] not even Hollywood can start from scratch.

?There simply are no developed plans for a Doctor Who movie at the moment. If and when the movie happens it will need to star television?s Doctor Who ? and there?s only ever one of those at a time.?

?Whatever happens,? he continues, ?the BBC and BBC Worldwide will work together to ensure that we don?t just get a movie, we get the movie that everyone wants.?

So that?s the end of that, for now. Though the question remains, will David Yates have anything to do with a movie if it gets made? Or is he just delusional?

They struggle to film a 14 episode series in the allotted time as it is. There's no way the star of the show can be loaned out to make a film without causing a disruption to TV filming.

Either it stars the current TV doctor and the series has a gap year, or they continue putting out 14 episodes a year, but cast a stranger in the film.

I hate both options, which is why I'd hate for the film to become a reality.

And yet as I said before if someone offered BBC the right money for the movie rights and the BBC blinked we would get something like the Cushing movies. It's not like BBC hasn't screwed Doctor Who over before (As in killing it off, WITH PREJUDICE, in the 80's) to leasing out the Doctor to a studio to be played by Cushing...

But hey Moffat knows exactly what's going to happen because Doctor Who is HIS baby and not the property of the BBC.

Actually no, only 6 mins existed from Galaxy 4 episode 1 and that was it. There was very few visual refences, only one blurry photo of the monster from it! Now we have an entire episode!

Also now we have two eps of Underwater Menace, I think the liklihood is high that the remaining ones will be animated.


While the two eps found won't have been top of everyone's lists (mine is Massacre part 4 I think, if we had to have one ep return), it's absolutely mindblowing to have two returned! There's been so few turn up (after 1992, it was only one ep in 99 and one ep in 04) that many had thought it impossible that any others would be recovered.

There is a #3, but it's not necessarily any better, which is for them to regenerate the Doctor on TV, but have the *OUTGOING* Doctor star in the movie. [There were lots of rumours about this happening with Tennant when he was leaving]

The obvious downside to this, of course, is that it would completely undercut the new guy...

I think the Beeb are much more careful with Who these days. RTD claimed the success of the revival has convinced them it's a long term brand and things like the hiatus year are designed to assure that. There may be missteps (Moffat isn't happy they axed Confidential and we've seen merchandise go up) but there are apparently plans to give it a rest and then bring it back if the majority tire of it again. I'm sure right now especially they'd love the money a movie would bring in but first you have to finance said movie anyway.

@ Missing Episodes: I feel such a sense of geek pride that after nearly 40 years since these were lost, we've recovered 2 more. While not as pined for as Tenth Planet part 4, or as momentous as the recovery of Dalek's Masterplan Part 2 back in 02, this is still an amazing find! I wonder how they will handle releasing these on DVD. It's not enough for a solo release really, and repacking the Lost to Time collection wouldn't be economical. Maybe add them as a bonus disk to some other release.

@Movie: As much as the brand is soaring, I just don't see a movie happening, regardless of who the Doctor is or whether it is in continuity or not. The only story worth telling on that scale is the Time War, and anything less would be hard follow up as we return to the regular series.
