  1. The All-Purpose Flickchart thread

    The Silence of the Lambs vs This is Spinal Tap
  2. Suggest future actors for the HAA! spotlight

    Pandy & I can have the Guttenberg conversation when we record this weekend, but I guarantee that it will devolve into us singing the Stonecutters song.
  3. The All-Purpose Flickchart thread

    Platoon vs True Grit (2010)

    They Live vs School of Rock
  5. Not to disagree with any of the above, but I'm not on-board with filmmakers making films that retroactively ask you to pretend previous films never existed, no matter how bad they were. And in this case, even if H20 is acknowledged, the franchise is actively wanting its audience to validate which arbitrary films count and which don't. I mean, yes, the Bond franchise makes no chronological sense, but then, the producers never try to overtly retcon entire movies, no matter how bad Moonraker was.
  6. The Convention Thread

    I am interested in being in Chicago early next year - my homebuying having curtailed from me having a real holiday in 2017. Can I afford it this time around? Barring a massive tragedy befalling my house in the next 6 months, probably yes. I'm not necessarily looking at the C2E2 weekend specifically, nor am I vain enough to think "Ian Wilson in Chicago!" is enough of a selling point to generate interest enough to entice others (although I'm still eager to cross off James & Kellen on my Earth-2 bingo card!). But I do want in on the Chicago talk for 2018
  7. Randomness

    Beer. Jigsaw & beer. Probably the only way to get Mike to watch a Saw sequel.
  8. Randomness

    In that Fort Ian doesn't get hooked up with Internet until tomorrow (at my most optimistic - British ISPs do not have a good record of punctuality), I had a cheap night in (No TV either btw). How cheap? I spent my entire evening when I got in from work doing a jigsaw puzzle, called a "wasjig". It's amazing that such an exciting, dynamic man is still single....
  9. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    Dude, three words: Wild. Wild. West. .......technically two words with one repeated, but you get the point.
  10. Help influence Episode 46!

    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 44, our subject will be Nicole Kidman. Pandy & I will take an executive decision on what makes the joint review on Friday 18th September so get your ideas in before then! NB) We won't be covering Batman Forever.
  11. Wait, did I send an email or not? The edit made this NO clearer.
  12. The All-Purpose Flickchart thread

    Goodfellas vs Singin' in the Rain
  13. The All-Purpose Flickchart thread

    Deliverance vs Speed
  14. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    They're 2 of the films being covered, but I have seen Deliverance before. Rounding out the Triforce of Reynolds is The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
  15. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    Speak for yourself - to the best of my knowledge I have sired no offspring, and I only watched 8 films as a child, none of which fit that description. On topic: by the time we start recording this month's HAA, I will have seen 4 Burt Reynolds movies for the first time - 2 for the podcast, and then both Cannonball Run (theatrical) movies. That Dom Deluise was a delightful film presence!
