RE: Anime Bargains

It's Day 9 of All the Anime sales, dunno what I was thinking yesterday

https://www.alltheanime.com/collections/12-days-of-christmas

If you've never seen Cowboy Bebop, then £12.99 for the Blu-ray is a steal, while Sword of the Stranger is a great movie at £4.99

RE: Anime Bargains

MVM are also doing a 12 Days of Christmas thing, and they're up to Day 3

https://www.anime-on-line.com/xcart/home.php?cat=2942

This one I recommend From the New World Parts 1 & 2 bundle for £9.99
Reviewed here and here. It's a proper post-apocalyptic sci-fi in the grand tradition of the genre, with some twists The Outer Limits would be proud of.

There's an incompatibility problem with one of the Blu-ray discs on Part 1 with some players, but if it doesn't work for you, MVM tend to send a copy of the DVD as a replacement. It's still worth a punt at that price.

Anime Bargains

All the Anime are doing their 12 Days of Christmas deal again; you might remember Noein for £5 last year. Today is the 4th Day, and there are some good bargains to be had.

https://www.alltheanime.com/collections/12-days-of-christmas

I recommend Gankutsuou, it's a really good sci-fi take on The Count of Monte Cristo and it's just £5!

Deal is live till 5pm tomorrow or as long as stocks last.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

What is the point of Theresa May writing open letters in newspapers, speaking to the public, bypassing parliament to get the people directly on board with her plan if she isn't going to go for a second referendum? Otherwise she's just wasting her breath and her time when she should be trying to get parliament on side with her plan.

No, this will probably be a thirteen episode long series telling one story, or a set of connected stories with the same characters.

RE: [VIDEO] Blade Runner 2

If you like that Blade Runner anime short... then good news everyone.

Crunchyroll and Adult Swim are producing a Blade Runner anime series, Blade Runner: Black Lotus, and they've thrown some serious names at it. Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed, Bubblegum Crisis) and Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Eden of the East) as directors, as well as Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop and Terror in Resonance) as creative producer.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

So Theresa just about got the deal past Cabinet, despite losing 7 ministers...

The DUP abstained on a bunch of votes last night indicating where Theresa can stick her confidence and supply...

Mogg and his fellow undead are busy gathering letters to oust Theresa...

And when it comes down to it, the deal has a mouse fart’s chance in a hurricane of getting through a parliamentary vote...

And if by some miracle, the Brexit deal gets through all this, Spain won’t let us have a Brexit deal unless they get Gibraltar back!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-46267684

Still, I expect it will all work out in the end, eh?

RE: [VIDEO] The All New Doctor Who Thread...

From Saturdays to Sundays, from XMas to New Years... even the special gets a shift on.

As for last week's episode, for the first time in years, the whole family had reason to watch Doctor Who, not just this sci-fi geek. I thought my parents would appreciate it, having lived through Partition.

And afterwards, my mum tells me. "That looked nothing like Punjab"
"Yeah mum, but what about the story, the history, the social relevance?"
"Don't care, that looked nothing like Punjab."

Damning verdict delivered, end of conversation.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

Ignore it, Si. I’ve come to the conclusion that minority groups, far right and far left have been allowed to dictate the terms of political debate for far too long now, and all it does is infuriate the moderate majority. Just because someone with an axe to grind and a platform on which to grind it makes a deliberately vile and offensive noise, doesn’t mean that opinion is acceptable or more importantly accepted.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

Glass half empty view. Now every policy he fails to enact he'll blame on the Democrats in the house blocking him. So come the 2020 election he walks being  re-elected, and we get another four years of Armageddon and Apocalypse.

Glass half full view. They find concrete iron clad evidence of criminality on Trump's part, and he gets impeached out of office.

What happens when they stop selling/making Blu-ray players. Oppo have already left the market.

RE: John Lewis top stop selling DVD players

Still got my Sony DVD player, bought in 2001 and it's still going strong. That's back when they used to make decent lasers for optical pickups. It's a workhorse machine that plays everything I throw at it. The only pain is that it's a SCART machine, and I had a hard time finding a SCART TV when my old CRT widescreen set finally died.

Since 2011 I've had 2 Blu-ray players die because of laser degradation, and worse, 2 CD players die for the same reason, after just three years of use. They deliberately make short life lasers these days, force you to buy more. And then David Attenborough pops up on our 4K TVs to make us feel guilty about buying too much and wasting too much.

RE: [VIDEO] The All New Doctor Who Thread...

I'm really liking this new series, the longer running time means a more measured pace which focuses on the characters more. Previous series felt breakneck, madcap affairs which never stood around long enough to contemplate consequences. The new Doctor is more of a conciliatory, inclusive team player, more of a mediator than the previous recent incarnations, who tended to be opinionated, righteous and leading from the front. The cinematography is spectacular.

About the only quibble I have at this time is the new Tardis interior, which looks like an explosion in a boiled sweet factory.
