    I read this yesterday, very interesting proposition. I always liked the darker episodes and films of the start trek universe so think if he has an idea that he went and pitched, I think it could be one that changes the franchise for the better and maybe even modernises it in the same vein that Discovery has. I recall his ER episode, I wasn't a fan of the show after the first season but I caught his episode and it was great as far as I can remember.

    We are living a parallel life here with films.

    I always see the beginning of that film, lose it somewhere in the middle, then become conscious again for the end when he's running home shouting something about being happy and that

    "The Disaster Artist" 8/10

    Quite good from James Franco, both behind and in front of the camera.

    The Danish Girl 7/10

    Fictional romantic drama based on the lives of Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener, the former being one of the pioneers of transgender surgery. Stars Eddie Redmayne and the superb, Oscar-winning Alicia Vikander. A moving and intimate portrayal.

    Small item in today's paper on how some film titles have been translated…


    In Israel, 'Terminator' became 'Deadly Mission' … 'Alien' became 'The Eighth Passenger' and 'Top Gun' became 'Love in the Skies.'

    In France, 'The Hangover' changed to 'Very Bad Trip.'

    In Germany, 'Annie Hall' changed to 'The Urban Neurotic.'

    Best of all… China changed 'The Full Monty' to 'Six Naked Pigs.'

    The french one is subtly brilliant

    and for Top Gun it seems they 'got' the love affair between kilmer and cruise before anyone else!

    The 2003 Hulk movie is terribly underrated.

    It’s much better than half of the tripe served up by Marvel these days. A movie well ahead of its time.

    7.5/10.

    I thought Eric Bana was good as Bruce Banner but the film was pretty poor IMO. Way too slow and plodding story with the CGI for the Hulk being atrocious. 5/10

    The Ed Norton one had a better story and he was as good as Eric Bana in the role of Bruce and the CGI was much better but still room for improvement. 7/10

    Generous. I've heard it described as the "best ever", frankly it comes out at the other end of the scale in my book and makes some of the prequels look quite good.

    Star Wars The Last Jedi - 3.5/10

    Aside from a few half decent scenes it's a lot of mush. Some decent ideas but nothing hasn't been done before and far too focused on two main characters on either side. Doesn't make good use of some of the better characters, the storyline is more jumpy than Empire Strikes Back and frankly they've made the eponymous character rather odious.

    At times I was looking at the time to see how long it had been, seemed liked days, although being Disney they did chuck in a fair number of cute creatures.

    And ffs who named the Emperor equivalent "Snoke"......?!?!? Some of the "acting" was atrocious, although I did spot and recognise Vyvyan out of The Young Ones, always knew he was on the dark side! (although the CAPITALISATION in the opening bit of the names of the good and bad was cheesy enough, they did finally revert to referencing it as the rebellion as if it wasn't bleeding obvious they were rehashing the originals just in a very bad way)

    Conclusion has to be VII was ok if just doing what IV had already done, Rogue One was just a taster of how bad things to come would get, and VIII is just the icing on the cake if the icing is just glue and the cake made ofs hit

    Ah, maybe you're someone I can have faith in their taste. Wouldn't have gone and seen it, far too many films being made that really are almost disrespectful to the legend, book, and or originals.

    Shame cause they can make some good movies when they try. Didn't see a trailer for it, but the latest in the Jurassic series might be ok if not doing anything others in the french fries didn't

    Yeah it was very dissapointing, just got no attachment to it at all. Disagree with Rogue one though, that was brilliant.

    I loved Rogue One as well, really by far the best star wars movie that's come out recently.

    I liked it first movie, thought it was ahead of its time. The second was good until Tim Roth went overboard. I do wonder why they’ve not made a Hulk movie for so long now.

    Die Hard 2, 7/10.

    Powell “You’re not ******* in somebody’s pool, are you?

    McClane “Yeah, and I’m fresh outta chlorine”

    Love it.

    I'm going on Sunday to watch this with the usual gang, has become an annual thing with pre and post drinks.

    From all the reviews, seems to be the proper obsessive Star Wars fans hate it, the more easy going fans love or like it

    I guess I'm in the latter part because to my mind, all those prequels were awful, the actual original three have parts that have dated badly and are awful at times, with only Rogue One for me being a nailed on film.

    But you take it all with a pinch of salt, enjoy the ****ness of all of them to a sense and accept they are at times dumb stories, I mean come on, three of the films had exactly the same story anyway, another Death Star with a big planet destroying weapon etc, its just when your kid it doesn't matter.

    The films, the whole saga is full of holes, stupid holes, but they are just light films so my expectations are I'll be watching another fun far fetched caper with some moments of 'darkness' that really aren't that dark

    I'll just pop my tin hat on now

    I loved how Rogue One was just it’s own film. It had so many cool characters and a darkeness lurked behind the whole film. That Vader scene was incredible as well.
