  1. David kinda pays off next film but his death is absolutely integral to 6. If this was all we got I'd resent him more but it's clearly a part of Kirks long term shift from Klingon adversary to Klingon racist. Which is positive because it's resolved properly. To my mind whilst you called this a trilogy 6 is just as much a part of it all, calling back to those moments as well as the Excelsior. I wonder if knowing how the promotions and commands played out later they would have been better off putting Sulu on the Reliant over Chekov. He was definitely there in Space Seed and allows that growth to the point where hes the Captain of Excelsior in 6.
  2. Haven't finished but three thoughts Electric whistles may play at a range of frequencies more inclusive to all federation species. A class m planet is about size, rotation, orbit, distance from the sun etc. Without those things retaining an atmosphere suitable for life is impossible. So they can't just use any old rock in space, it's got to have all these elements but be unpopulated. The code they use is dumb as hell. I figured they should just say "Mr Scott says itll take 12 hours" and Kirk would know that means 6 because of Scottys rule about exaggerating repair times. https://youtu.be/8xRqXYsksFg
  3. Always great fun to record with Ian and delighted to get a chance to chat with Pandy again. Congrats on taking back the list format Ian!
  4. I buy a new game once a year. It's the one thing where I'm not at the razors edge of culture.
  5. Thanks for bring nice about our segment guys. I'm usually so scattered by the end of a recording that I don't have the best handle on how good they were. Gonna start in on some of these soon. It's seriously a huge achievement not only to get to 1000 episodes but to put together a coalition of diverse friends who can come together with 24 hours of content like this. Well done Mike and well done everyone.
  6. Well she's a...she's very busy with... Nah, she's a sponge minor pseudo-celeb. At best she makes money advertising random tat to her pretty decent social media crowd. 800k on instagram.
  7. She came back after a year of neck and back rehab and then reinjured it when Sasha kicked her in the back. Spinal stenosis, she just shouldn't be in there. I mean, it was an off spot but nothing a healthy person wouldnt shake off.
  8. I was! I also saw a Tokyo Jyoshi Pro show and Noah show at Korakuen, as well as two Stardom shows. Highlights- Hoping to get into DDT this Wednesday.
  9. In WWE I hate that stuff because it's actually detrimental to Mickie. However in Stardom the age range of performers is about 15-40, and the teenage up and comers frequently call older talent Grandma. That's because the audience is involved enough to know better and because it's a women's promotion the older talent have a lot more respect to begin with.
  10. So when they decided on where they were putting this park what they'd be doing there, not only did they fail to account for hurricanes that could knock out park security or DNA changes that made the dinosaurs able to breed, or plants they couldn't eat or the unpredictability of stuff a giant raptor with octopus DNA but they built a billion dollar theme park on an active volcano?! Dumb. So goddamn dumb.
  11. Baby Driver easily. Bring it on it dumb fun. Baby Driver is an directing/editing masterpiece.
  12. Jigsaw. Just kidding. Films of 2005? IE- the year of the first episode? War of the Worlds or Peter Jacksons King Kong seem simplest and lend themselves to comparisons with prior classic editions. Easy to build an episode around. Neither seems to have merited a review before.
  13. I was a fan of his since Brick which fundamentally redesigns a high school film into a hard bitten noir with its own specific dialect. Also a big fan of Looper, a genuinely original time travel crime thriller. What I'm saying is, he's a seriously talented world-builder. Not just in effects but in how the society works ground up. I'm excited. And expect Joseph Gordon-levitt to be cast.
  14. That works. And speaking of... Transformers: The Last Knight is, and I do not say this lightly, comfortably the WORST Transformers film. It's abuse of history, physics and the human eye are unparalleled. Two and a half hours and I can say that I had almost no idea what was going on in any given scene. I have never been so confused and angry and at the same time bored by a film. It yielded only one high point- "Cool backflip, Sir Anthony Hopkins"
  15. The look always evolves so it'll do for now. Although I too am annoyed by the fact that the coat and pantaloons end at exactly the same point. I guess those three inches of leg don't care how cold it is?
  16. And he wears stripey underpants to show it. And has that weird French animation style where everyone has really long faces. It's weird because it was purely a defenders thing, but I'm always disappointed that no other Phantoms have the power of Ten Tigers. Or seven tigers as shown here.
  17. Having bought those flights and wk12 tickets I can confirm this is the case. Little do they know I have neither.
  18. I'll prejudge anything and everything thank you very much!
  19. That bit that looks like the climactic battle with all the stuff coming out of the buildings and that red light suffusing everything. That looks really really really really shit. Hard pass. At least, in exchange for money. Oh, and Cyborg still looks crap and it still feels weird that this is the character they promoted to the league to fulfil diversity requirements. DCAU got it right the first time. Why is the lineup of the movie Justice League at the mercy of Geoff John's obsession with a character who isn't even in these films yet. Ditch Hal, use John. I don't know about anyone else, but it doesn't feel like a Justice League without a Green Lantern.
  20. Brilliant stuff Ian, you made me laugh aloud in a Morrison's. On Mel, he is clearly an actor and director of talent. I wouldn't be in favour of his censure on grounds of ideological contrasts or anything like that. He's done plenty over his career that is impressive of both fronts. However I'm also not of the opinion that a person is owed a position of power through past fame. What does "letting him back in" mean? The public don't owe his adulation and stardom. If he lost that of his own accord is it lost and frankly losing it for good isnt unreasonable. He can make a living as he is, he's not destitute, if he is that's his own fault. He doesn't need to be allowed to stand up at awards shows or make speeches or any of that.
