    Plus any British people who are at least the age of The Brothers Wilson and older (e.g. Tom, Dave) think of something very different about the word "Orville"
    Non-Brits: Google the name "Keith Harris".

    You boys and your potty mouths, honestly.
    I mean, I expect it of Pandy, but for Christian to be dragged down to this level...
    To answer the first question, latest witch would be Ethel Hallow, as played by the Oscar nominated Felicity Jones. Why? Because she's always being outsmart education by, literally, The Worst Witch.

    In the interest of sharing....(the title does, unintentionally, fit in with the overall theme!)

    That could've been phrased better....

    Suggest future actors for the HAA! spotlight
    This thread is designated to gather up suggestions of actors (gender neutral term for the political correctness win!) to feature on future episodes on HAA! Ideally, I would like suggestions of actors who have tried to many different films so that Pandy & I can examine the dramatic range of the subject, so that rules out Rob Schneider for a start.
     
    Also, for the time being, the Brothers Wilson would prefer to limit the scope to actors who were prominent from the 1970s to the present day, as neither of us did "film studies" (we're British) and have only seen so many films that are beyond 40 years old. I'm hoping to address this as I expand my film horizons gradually, but for the meantime, let's cap the suggestions to people active between the 1970s and the present day - I'll allow leeway if the actor was doing films in the 40s/50s/60s right up until the 80s/90s/00s but it very much depends on who said actor is.

    Help influence episode 42!
    Yes, you can help influence not only the film Pandy & I use as the joint review, but the homework we assign each other to plot the range of their career. As announced in Episode 40, our subject will be Kirsten Dunst.
    Pandy & I will take an executive decision on what makes the joint review on Saturday 27th May so get your ideas in before then!
    NB) We won't be covering any Spider-Man films and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was covered in our first episode.

  9. slothian added a post in a topic First time you felt old   

    I'm 31 and I know for a fact that I was 18 when I joined The Oratory in 2003 at the behest of my friend (and oWa partner) Fishdood.
    But I will allow nostalgia to willingly blind you!
  10. slothian added a post in a topic Episode 951   

    Charlie Cox > Rex Smith?!?!?!

    (Kidding - I totally agree).
  11. slothian added a post in a topic First time you felt old   

    Not quite the same train of thought, but my surviving grandmother (97 next month) became a Granny for the first time in 1967 (aged 47) and for a final time in 1988 (aged 68). That last one being Pandy btw.
    Couldn't tell you the range for her great grandchildren but her first one born within wedlock was in 2007. Prior to that, I remember her remarking to me that she was fond of them all but perturbed by the fact that "they are all bastards".
    Still makes me chuckle!

    Misspelling aside, I feel I'm missing some context here.

  14. slothian added a post in a topic Happy Birthday Donomark!   

    I was going to wish you Happy Birthday as I-Wizzle, then I decided that this would be ill-advised.
    So pip pip, have a spiffing birthday, young sir! Oo-de-lally!!

    So, who's turn is it next to watch Faust? I don't remember Preston ever commenting on it....
  16. slothian added a post in a topic The Doctor Who thread   

    Yeah, really enjoyed it (having not seen most of last season). Bill's great and I'm looking forward to this TARDIS crew.
    And that 'Coming Soon' reel.......
  17. slothian added a post in a topic No rush of course, but is there a timetable for the Spectre episode?   

    I don't know what TL:DL means, but you're only half right. Yes, the raw recording is utterly fucked up, but the finished episode - whenever it surfaces - will be akin to traditional FYEO. But I have had issues with the following:
    a) current podcasts - I do two monthly podcasts, one of which I have full editing duties for. They take precedence;
    b) aforementioned raw recording issues;
    c) previous PC crashed at the end of February so I have had to buy a new PC and sort through new editing software;
    d) part of the original recording has been forever lost - luckily it's the intro leading up to the song. This will require re-recording;
    e) It's a lot of effort to devote to, well, Spectre.....
    In short, it's a massive undertaking, of which I have very limited time to dedicate to (I am currently studying for professional examinations outside of my full-time job) and isn't my main priority, hence the delay. I'm sorry if that disappoints anyone, but the Spectre episode is ultimately a one-off special for a defunct podcast which ran out its original lifespan. If you (in the general sense, rather than a specific poster in this thread) feel annoyed that it hasn't been released as of yet, then please reassess what you consider to be important in life. It WILL be completed, but at my own pace - and look at my forum handle if you need a clue....

    I feel like there's an obvious joke to be made about Donovan pushing so hard for Denzel Washington movi........OHHHHHH!!! Right......
    ....both their names start with D! Simple answer! #edgyjoke

    Why can't we upvote on these forums?!?
    Haven't watched it - don't want key moments revealed/spoiled.
  22. slothian added a post in a topic Help influence Episode 41!   

    That hardly narrows the potential list down....
  23. slothian added a post in a topic Help influence Episode 41!   

    Still very early on in the deliberation process, but the likelihood is we'll do one of his pre-Oscar roles from the 80s, one of his biggest performances from the 90s and a 21st century film. "Biggest" doesn't necessarily mean one of his Oscar wins, but the Gump backlash (relatively speaking) interests me, having not seen it before.
    Keep the suggestions coming!
    EDIT: I do not consider Steve Rogers to be my enemy, for the avoidance of doubt.

    EDIT: Huh, that was my 5,000th post.
