  1. Legends of Tomorrow

    In a good way, or bad way?
  2. Episode 964

    Good to see that my skills at baiting haven't dulled over time!
  3. Random wrestling thoughts

    So whilst I don't currently subscribe to the Network - as I choose not to directly fund the mad masturbation fantasies of Vince McMahon - I look to other outlets to provide commentary on the present WWE. One of these outlets is the What Culture Wrestling team, who are miles ahead of the main What Culture site in that their articles and videos are done by a select team of contributors, who also run the UK indie fed WCPW on the side which has seen the likes of Kurt Angle, Mysterio, Cody Rhodes, Alberto del whatever and Will Ospreay on their cards. So far, so what? Well, said team are based out of Newcastle where I live/work and two of the main figures in that team have predictions contests based upon the results of WWE PPVs, in which the loser has to undertake a forfeit. For WWE Great Balls of Fire (see aforementioned Vince comment), the loser was made to perform a concert of embarrassing songs in the centre of Newcastle. That took place today around 10am, so like the responsible soul I am, I pretended I had a private appointment, left the office and moseyed on down to watch the following: If you pause around the 4:55 minute mark, you'll spot a corpulent ginger gentleman in a suit hanging back to watch the fun, away from the 20-something students/slacker young people who are the more regular audience. The end of the video is one of those rubbish storyline things, which is eminently skippable.
  4. The Doctor Who thread

    Pshaw! How does wearing dungarees make anyone take me less seriously as a lawyer?!? On topic: Zubaz
  5. The Doctor Who thread

    I expected the Yanks not to get the reference, but you disappoint me. I'm backing dungarees to make a comeback.
  6. The Doctor Who thread

    Keep the "Scottish Widow" look from the trailer. "I'm the Doctor, I'm over 900 years old and believe me, I'm the right person to speak to about pensions".
  7. The Doctor Who thread

    Ian Levine isn't happy. This bothers me not, do carry on.
  8. Episode 11.02

    Legitimate as those issues are, are they your only issues? I still can't get over the bowing and the swapping l's for r's.
  9. Episode 11.02

    Good spot re: pool balls! Never crossed my mind.
  10. And on the seventh day, Ian rested. Use this thread to flag up difficult choices you've had to make and the various pros and cons of ranking films in such an OCD way! What's currently your top film? What's currently your bottom-most film? And what decade have you ranked the most often? Also, why not post your own Flickchart handle on here? It's a given that, in the near future, your list will very much be a work in progress and no-one will seriously think that you regard "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" as the best film of all time. Mine is slothian205.
  11. The All-Purpose Flickchart thread

    Dr Strangelove vs Alien
  12. The All-Purpose Flickchart thread

    Baby Driver vs Dredd
  13. Help influence Episode 44!

    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 42, our subject will be Burt Reynolds. Pandy & I will take an executive decision on what makes the joint review on Saturday 22nd July so get your ideas in before then! NB) We won't be covering Boogie Nights.
  14. Help influence Episode 44!

    Dude, you're not quite 2 years older than I am, and Burt Reynolds was NEVER on my radar as a child. Bristol ITV must've been a very different beast - Central simply padded out their schedules with repeats of Blockbusters.
  15. Random wrestling thoughts

    I know How2Wrestling isn't everyone's cup of tea, but in that it's all out there now, Kefin filling in his girlfriend (f'nar) on all of Hogan's shit and hearing her utter contempt for the man is always amusing.
  16. The All-Purpose Flickchart thread

    Enchanted vs The Mask
  17. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    You sure did!
  18. The Doctor Who thread

    I agree with that guy, whoever he is. Apart from the grammar pertained in the final line.
  19. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    "HEY WINSTON- START PEDALING!!!" Awesome movie - it's on the Pulp Diction slate at some point.
  20. The All-Purpose Flickchart thread

    Bring It On vs Blade
  21. Happy Birthday Dan!

    Happy birthday, you wheezing geriatric!
  22. The All-Purpose Flickchart thread

    Batman: Mask of The Phantasm vs Iron Man
  23. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    Confessions of a Dangerous Mind: Took me a while to warm up to, and not having grown up with Chuck Barris being a household name, it didn't have quite he subversive edge I think it was going for, but ultimately I enjoyed it. Sam Rockwell remains amazing.
  24. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    They write their way around it though. Masterfully, I might add!
  25. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    I know, right?! Totally better than Singin' in the Rain.... Also, do you have shares in this Gumball show, Ricky? I don't think I'd have ever heard of it if you weren't bigging it up on the forums/Tirades wiki.
