  1. Hackers, Maleficent, and Changeling.
  2. 2001: A Space Odyssey vs. Blade Runner (the final version) At the moment I'm not wild about either, but in both cases, I've only seen the movie once and it was at least ten years ago, so I'm well overdue for a rewatch. 1) Which is better? 2) Which you would you watch first?
  3. Noel Clarke accused of sexual harassment during his time on Doctor Who: https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2021/may/07/noel-clarke-accused-of-sexual-harassment-on-doctor-who-set?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other Barrowman has also been accused of exposing himself, albeit as a prank rather than sexually predatory behavior.
  4. 12 Angry Men (Sidney Lumet) Monty Python and the Holy Grail (Terry Gilliam & Terry Jones) Henry V (Kenneth Branagh) Beauty and the Beast (Gary Trousdale & Kirk Wise) Muppet Christmas Carol (Brian Henson) One Night in Miami (Regina King)
  5. What’s Love Got to Do with It or Othello (1995).
  6. My gut answer is “The Wizard of Oz is a fucking masterpiece and 2001: A Space Odyssey is fucking dull.” The honest answer is that Wizard is due for a rewatch in light of HAA! and I’ve only seen 2001 once and it was about ten years ago (in fact, both are now currently on why watchlist for HBO Max, which I got last week). Even if I end up liking 2001 next time, though, it’s extremely unlikely I’d rank it anywhere near Wizard in terms of quality, soul, or legacy.
  7. RIP. Didn’t know him personally but he seemed like a super guy.
  8. It's also what Troy McClure's piscine proclivities in "A Fish Called Selma" are based on.
  9. https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/25/entertainment/jessica-walter-obit/index.html
  10. Here's are some recent updates and posts: -The Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum -Chapter 6 -Africa's First (and Last) Hadrosaur
  11. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/oct/31/sean-connery-james-bond-actor-dies-aged-90
  12. I'm adding blogposts on the site to put new fossil discoveries into context, as well as cover groups of animals that ultimately didn't get featured in the book (though I'll be limiting my focus to fossils 100 million years old or less). Here's the first one, about new dinosaur announced two weeks ago: https://www.100millionyears.com/the-three-headed-eagle
  13. Chapter 5 (featuring the earliest penguins and the biggest snake which ever lived) is up.
  14. The Spinosaurus entry has been updated in light of recent discoveries.
  15. Chapter 4 (which is about T. rex, other animals from the last several million years of the Cretaceous, and the extinction of the dinosaurs) is now up.

  17. I'll have to get back to you. Been meaning to see Blade for ages but it never seems to streaming when it's on my mind. I'll be re-watching Winter Soldier for a future recording soon, however...
  18. Since you did a Christmas special about Tim Burton and Ian did a Christopher Nolan episode of Flickchart Forum, why not do an Christmas special on Joel Schumacher?
  19. Wankbending. He is neither the first nor the last of them.
  20. www.100millionyears.com At the advice of my publishing guru, I've launched a site for the book I've been working on the past five years. It's about one hundred extinct animals from the past one hundred million years (one species per million year interval). The first three chapters are now up (minus some additional content which will be in the completed book). I am still looking for an artist for this, as well as permission for some of the photos, so for now, there are stand-ins for each for demonstrative purposes. Enjoy and feel free to provide feedback or notify me of any technical problems with the site. I'm hoping to add more stories in the blogs page soon.
