Even bad publicity is publicity, even if it's massively manufactured by think tanks. (probably)

RE: [VIDEO] Velma

The right-wing tards on 4chan are absolutely losing their ish on absolutely everything about this, and the milder complaints being parrotted on facebook are moaning about anything they can, including but not limited to the fact that Velma never has any problem finding her glasses once they've been knocked off her face

For that reason alone I'm loving it

But there's still more to do. Plus it may help with those answers I couldn't get

There might be an issue with the first puzzle. I know what the answer is, but it's coming up as incorrect

As is happens, one of the recommendations of the panel is that he be barred from ever holding public office ever again. Sweet.

RE: [VIDEO] Post Trump fallout

The committee investigating the Jan 6 insurrection have oficially asked the justice department to prosecute Donald Trump for:

  • Inciting, assisting, aiding, or comforting an insurrection
  • Obstruction of an official proceeding
  • Conspiracy to defraud the United States
  • Conspiracy to make a false statement

Clear as day that he's bang to rights on all 4 charges, but it'll be the usual cries of politically-motivated witchhunt.

It's not a hunt when the quarry is front and centre, begging for attention

Yep. Was quite worrisome last night as my recent track record of driving in the snow is less than stellar. But it had thawed enough by this morning so the drive to work wasn't that trecherous

Yeah. If there's a low point to series, it's him. He's just not a good fit for the role. But he probably bribed the casting agent just so he could cop off with Catherine (who's an old friend, but I don't llike to talk about it)

RE: [VIDEO] Violent Night (David Harbour is Santa)

Caught this last night at the Imax, and it's very much a Ronseal movie, but as such, it can seem like something that was written as a 25-minute short stretched out to nearly 2 hours, but don't let that put you off, this is a thoroughly enjoyable movie.

The premise is exactly as shown in the trailer. Immensely wealthy family are held hostage in the matriarch's palatial house, with John Leguizamo after the several million dollars being stashed in the vault below. The only thing in their way is a disgruntled but actual Santa Claus and a precocious 10 year old who's been watching Home Alone on repeat.

The deeper plot is a recently separated couple take their daughter along for the annual get-together at the home of his terrible mother, where they meet his terrible sister, brainless boyfriend and stereotypical teenage son. Once the not-so-pleasantries are out of the way, a little Hallmark Christmas Special seeps into the narrative, and all the little girl wants for Christmas is for her parents to get back together. Then all hell breaks loose in a flurry of sledgehammers, billiard balls in a rugby sock, up-ended lawnmowers, semi-automatic machine guns and booby-traps Culkin would be proud of.

You remember those videos that pop every now and again that have some kind of medical professional detailing the actual injuries sustained by Harry & Marv in the aforementioned Home Alone movies? Imagine that premise, coupled with the plot (and noticeable musical cues) of Die Hards 1 & 2, and you've got this movie. 

It's ridiculous and overblown. The violence & gore is so over-done it teeters into the realms of the ludicrous and both myself and everyone in the cinema was loving it. To try to add some credence as to why loveable old Saint Nick would have such a predilection for random outbursts of horrific violence, we're given small flashbacks to a past, more barbaric life, but they don't focus on that too much. It IS a fun festive frolic for all the family, after all.

9/10. It loses a point for the terrible geographic claims made in the first scene. I don't know who they're trying to kid, but that really ain't Bristol.

RE: Brexit

After the recent census results were released by the ONS, revealing that among other things, Christians are now a minority religion in the UK, for a myriad of reasons. Naturally, knee-jerking morons like Farage are leaping onto the numbers and misrepresenting them to fit their personal agendas. Luckily, Emma's about to throw a bit of rationality into the mix.

RE: [VIDEO] Willow

It's a little iconoclastic, and as much I hate to say it, that first episode was doing great until Warwick showed up and started talking, He's a lovely bloke, enthusiastic for his projects, a great father, and a prolific ambassador and representative for performers of a diminutive stature, and certainly iconic, but dammit, he's just not a very good actor.

Apart from when he played Griphook in the last HP movie. Other than that, he's consistently meh

RE: [VIDEO] Wednesday (Addams Family spin-off)

Amazing, astounding, perfection. There aren't enough superlatives to encapsulate how absolutely spot-on this series was, from the mind of Burton based on the original performances of Ricci. I'm happy she was involved as it gave her blessing to Ortega's portrayal.

This, I would watch several times, which i haven't been willing to do with a series since Buffy.
