The New Guy

The New Guy (1/8)

  1. is currently grumbling over the Green Lantern trailer

  2. I'm currently reading: "A Gentleman's Game" by Greg Rucka "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Stieg Larson "Easy Riders Raging Bulls" by Peter Biskind "Metallica: Justice for All" by Joel McIver "It's Superman" by Tom De Haven "The Shipping News" by Annie Proulx I do a lot of reading...simultaneously...
  3. It's literally just geek stuff. Whatever we feel like talking about. So far, there's: 1. Punisher: War Zone 2. Listening to albums we'd previously said we hated 3. Torchwood Series 3 4. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince 5. A review of three albums (which may or may not be kinda like Waiting for the Trade with music...but nothing can be proved and my friend doesn't even know what earth-2 is, so it's totally an homage on my part) 6. Watchmen 7. Sonisphere 2009 8. Some general outtakes 9. (For some reason this episode, our only comic episode, disappeared off the face of the earth...) 10. Top 10 of Everything 11. The Christmas Special 12. Doctor Who: The Eleventh Hour 13. New Moon And some of it is really probably not that funny. We're both British. We both have friends who we wanted to amuse with it. But now we kinda want other people to listen to it, as well.
  4. Thanks. That's really helpful It's still only a first draft, so I'll take on board what you've said and see if I can't iron out some of the kinks.
  5. It's not good. Or funny. But there are about 13 episodes on iTunes of mine and my best friends' podcast, and nobody listens to us (so at the minute, it's just our school friends listening to it). It's called Wil and Stu's RantCast.
  6. I had to write a short story/start of a longer piece for my degree work, and I thought I'd post it here and see if I could get any feedback. It's a work-in-progress; a kind of Twin Peaks-esque mystery in a small town where strange things seem to occur, and yet, throughout my piece, it is more realistic and gritty. Thanks to anyone who wants to have a look and tell me what they think.
  7. Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life Identity Crisis Infinite Crisis Crisis on Infinite Earths Final Crisis Strangers in Paradise vol. 1 Batman: Cataclysm Batman: No Man's Land Batman: Legacy Green Lantern: Secret Origin Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War Green Lantern: Rage of the Red Lanterns Final Crisis: Rogue's Revenge The Flash: Blitz The Flash: Return of Barry Allen The Flash: Blood Will Run The Flash: Rogue War The Flash: Emergency Stop Batman: Heart of Hush Batman: Hush Batman: Hush Returns Batman: The Long Halloween Batman: Dark Victory Batman: Haunted Knight Doctor Who: The Forgotten Torso Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again Scalped vol. 1 All Star Superman vol. 1 and 2 Superman: For Tomorrow DC: The New Frontier Spider-Man: Kraven's Last Hunt Daredevil: Underboss
  8. I've just thought of something else related to the Ra's decoy, and the decoy shown at the party later on; what if these are meant to be Nolan's versions of the Ubu family. A constant slew of near-identical Asian men dedicated to serving Ra's al Ghul. Just a thought.
  9. I just watched the end of the film again and when Bruce is pushed under the beam and Ra's says "you burnt my house and left me for dead. consider us even." the camera moves over Bruce and he is in exactly the same position as fake-Ra's was during his death. Which makes me love my theory even more...
  10. Thanks. His Doctor is incredibly different to every other incarnation, and it was at a time when the BBC was trying desperately to have the show taken off the air. In amongst the numerous budget cuts and various other factors, the show just produced some really awful episodes that are shown by the fact that Baker was only present for 2 seasons (one of which was a gigantic one-off story split into 4 smaller stories). As well as this, the BBC requested that, if the show was to return the Doctor would have to regenerate to give the public a reason to watch, as the majority of viewers had dropped off during the Baker years. It's sad; his portrayal of an angry alien Doctor is unique amongst the collective thus far, and the actual worst set of stories is actually his successor, Sylvester McCoy's first series. But, were it to come down to buying Peter Davison, Sylvester McCoy or Colin Baker and I had to make a choice, Baker would always be the first to disappear off the list.
  11. The movie was the first story I got on DVD, and it's pretty good, but I have stretches of time where I don't dig it as much as I should. I plan to get everything on DVD soon, but those Colin Baker DVDs just make me cringe...I mean, I like his portrayal of the Doctor for the most part, but I don't feel comfortable spending £35+ on the remaining 6th Doctor episodes when I know they're all in my lower echelon of ratings.

  13. I always took Ra's saying "you burnt my house and left me for dead" as a reference to Bruce allowing the fake Ra's to die at the start rather than Ducard himself. If that makes sense?
  14. Is it wrong that I'm kinda excited about this? I mean...I don't expect it to come out...but the thought that it COULD fills me with fuzzy joy...and then I'll read it, and wish I'd spent my money on something less crazy.
