  1. I like the look of Echo Generation.
  2. The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988) I was one of the few people to see this in the cinema on it's release and as a 13 year old who was expecting more Monty Python I admit to being disappointed. As an adult who has a more rounded appreciation of film I was absolutely blown away by it. The cast is on form, the story bubbles along at a pace and the production value is visible in every single scene. Being a Gilliam film, I am not surprised to find that it had a troubled production but it does not show in the final cut. A wonderful Fantasy. 5 Oliver Reeds/5
  3. Before we got married she told me that she didn't like Labyrinth and while this was a shock it wasn't to overcome our shared love. I had no idea, though, that her dislike applied to all of Jim Henson's creations. I never asked. Maybe I didn't want to know.
  4. I can understand that my wife doesn't love Lego or videogames. These are things that I can rationalise away as part of her gender-normative upbringing. These were pastimes for boys in the less-enlightened time of our youth. But she doesn't love The Muppets and this has been cause for genuine concern to me at times. I watch almost everything that has been done under The Muppets banner and I am transported back to childhood. I'm filled with innocence and glee and a smile spreads itself across my face. My wife remains stonefaced. She is genuinely loving, generous, kind and funny but for whatever reason these wonderful puppets mean nothing to her and do not penetrate her heart. How can I help her?
  5. I can live with most Americanisms but the one that I fucking hate, especially when written, is the omission of 'to be' when talking in the future tense. For example 'This thing needs <to be> fixed.' It's painful to see or hear.

  7. Nothing in any other superhero movie is as good as "Gene Hackman's real-estate scam."
  8. Day 1: The Last Ninja 2 intro from the C64 https://youtu.be/7KbvdHfSxzs?t=351
  9. L. A. Story This fantastical look into the culture of L.A. is charming, funny and completely ludicrous. It makes me want to watch Threads again. 4 pointy birds/5
  10. I want to beat that spider to death but I can't get close without getting blasted by magic, and his mates can fuck off. I'm posting this because that is all it usually takes for me to make a breakthrough.
  11. Three fuckers are dead. Almost got caught out by something grisly that looked like the head of a fly on a man's back but made it to the next lantern and Byrgenwerh is laid out before me. Onwards and upwards
  12. After two years off I went back to this and started again over the weekend. I've beaten CB, FG, BSB, VA and TWoH. I've made my through the forbidden woods and past some snakes so now I can get, via a couple of lifts, to three fuckers who kick the shit out of me for giggles. Am I going the right way?
