I love that article.

Quote:
nobody really knew they wanted three more Fast & Furious sequels until there was a trailer where The Rock breaks a plaster cast off his arm while saying "Daddy's gotta go to work", and then everyone was like "oh HELL YES! GIVE ME ONE HUNDRED MORE OF THOSE FILMS!";


Yup.

I still can't believe you'd never heard "It Doesn't Matter".

That was posted on here a while ago - I love that article.

Not as much as I love the Rock mind.

I was trying to explain my love of the Rock to an American colleague and he really just didn't get it.

That's good, because if you ain't sharing, people ain't caring.

It Doesn't Matter came on in my car on the way to Cottage this year and Craster had never heard it before.

Mr Robot is brill plus the end song (in the latest episode) was from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure so there’s no reason not to watch.

Two Heads Are Better Than One? Break Away? The Boys and the Girls? In Time? Dangerous? Father Time?

... I like Bill and Ted, okay?

In time. Worked really well in the context of the scene, too.

Just watched the most recent episode of The Orville and the character level work continues to impress me in spite of the relatively thin plots. For some reason during this episode it struck me precisely how utterly fucking shameless it's ripping-off of Star Trek TNG is. It's not just a couple of little things, it's almost every single detail: the intro, the theme tune, the uniforms, the food dispenser things, even the noise of the doors. Unless there's some shared ownership of the IP--which doesn't seem likely as one is Fox and the other CBS--then I'm stunned they're getting away with it. I mean the things I mention aren't exactly the same of course but they're so blatantly hewing as close as possible that taken as a whole it's impossible to deny.

They don't have any rights to the ip, but they have producers, writers and vfx staff and maybe others that have worked on Star Trek.

Also Sherry Palmer.

I could be very wrong, but I think pastiche/parody is given generous leeway.

Also isn't the original out of copyright, or is that not how it works?

Yeah I think they'd have to go down the parody/spoof angle if they were planning to mount a legal defence. Doubt it would come to that here though, but maybe.

The Punisher as a character is very difficult to make sympathetic and i just don't think think they managed it which made all the agonising nonsense.


Do they really try that hard? The Punisher isn't really meant to be sympathetic, to my mind it's designed to be an abject lesson in what happens when you go down the 'wrong' route of seeking justice, and the Netflix version does that pretty well. Trying to build the pathos of redemption into it would undercut the whole premise of the character.

I'd more just say that they do a pretty good job of convincing you of his motivation, even if you can't really fully condone his actions. Ultimately he pretty much just has war inside him.

The Expanse has grown up to be one of my favourite current shows. S1 was fine, but the second one is firing on all cylinders. If any of you has any interest in good science fiction, stop what you're doing and watch it.

Oh good. I did enjoy S1, but not enough to have watched S2 yet.

Season 3 of Mr Robot has just been fabulous. Barely a misstep in sight.

Punisher finished. That was really fucking good. My favourite Netflix Marvel, I think.

Last episode still to watch but agree. I prefer a hero powered by fury rather than emo.
