    A proposed Frasier revival: wouldn’t he be doing a podcast instead of radio, subsisting off meagre Patreon funds, and living in a much more modest apartment? :unsure:


    He could have reinvented himself as one of these right wing self help guru academic twats like Jordan Peterson.

    Not a huge fan of the "Trans athletes are just lying to get into competitions because that's totally how it works, look at the beard!" plot line this week though.

    Some guys definitely are now doing it just to make an anti trans athlete point. Like not even transitioning just claiming they identify as a woman and setting some records in the women's divisions and then going back to competing as men. Seen two examples of it this week alone. 


    I honestly don't know how I feel about legit trans women competing against cis women. Particularly if they have transitioned later in life.


    I don't think anyone is transitioning just to compete against women but still think it's questionable whether it should be permitted of not.

    A lot of the Martin moments do that for me, particularly the Christmas episode where Fraiser is keen on getting Fredrick educational gifts but finds out he actually wants a Outlaw Laser RoboGeek. 


    Marty Crane, possibly the best screen dad ever.


  4. Haven't paid any attention to this at all beyond the fact of knowing Bill Burr is gonna be in it, come to find out Werner Herzog is also in it, and Taika Waititi, and Gina Carano and Pedro Pascal (I hope he's a bisexual dick slinging badass basically space Oberyn). 


    That's a whole big lot of good shit right there. 

  5. Fucking wild that there is just no option to legally watch this in the UK.


    Seems like it would be a good fit for BBC 2.  I bet if it was a boring as fuck Scandinavian police procedural they would have shown it already.


    Fuck it. I'm going to aftempt to find a torrent for the first time in like five years. 

  6. In professional snooker you aren't allowed the same name as another registered player. There are shit players who were registered first who have a name locked down and all time greats who have to use a middle initial. 


    That always struck me as absurd. But it makes more sense than newcomers being able to call themselves Clint Eastwood just because their parents names them after the only famous first name with their surname.

    Alexander McQueen was the fashion designer. Steve McQueen is a film director so while not an actor, it is the same industry.


    Plus as far as your bugbear here goes, the possibly unpalatable truth is that Charlie Murphy just ain't very well known, particularly on this side of the Atlantic. If some Irish woman grows up always being called Charlie, fair goes.

    I caught it before you said it. I stand by it. Fuck him. And fuck her. 


    Oh I'm Steve McQueen. No you aren't, ya fucking fanny. You just know he never went by Steve as well. Her, I might give the benefit of the doubt to maybe she didn't know. But her management should have told her there already was a Charlie Murphy and despite not being a huge success himself he achieved legendary status through being named in that Chapelle show sketch. 


    These fucking kids today have no respect. 


    I'm gonna file an official motion to have her deported. Real Irish people aren't called Charlotte. Family are all tans if you ask me.

    Meh, who cares. If Steve McQueen can do it so can she.

    He's in a different industry though? I think. If there's an actor called Steve McQueen who isn't a direct descendent he can get fucked. If he is a fashion designer (like I think) that's acceptable while I also think he's a twat unless it's his actual name. Acceptable twattery. 


    But even if it's your actual name and you're not his descendent you can't be Steve McQueen as an actor. You just can't. Call yourself Stephen or something.

    I’d never heard of either Charlie Murphy until this thread.


    Anyhow, this will be cack.

    If you've never seen the Chapelle show Charlie Murphy's Hollywood Stories episode you should rectify that ASAP. Quite possibly the best comedy sketch ever. 


    "I'm Rick James bitch. Enjoy yo self". 


    Also yes, it very clearly will. Most generic sci-fi story ever, being tapped into ten years after the fan base peaked. It's got big dull did written all over it. 

  10. Neg me all you want but if a bonafide Hollywood legend already had the same name and they only died like five years ago tops (edit 2 years ago guy is still fucking warm ffs) it's just the right thing to do to differentiate yourself. Her name is Charlotte too so it's not like she didn't have options. She knows what she's doing. She should never work again as long as she maintains that name without a middle initial or whatever. Imagine some young whippersnapper actor came along and his name was Jaime Lee Curtis. Shit wouldn't fly. And rightly so.

    Some more cast


    Danny Sapani as Captain Jacob Keyes

    Olive Gray as Dr. Miranda Keyes

    Charlie Murphy as Makee, an orphaned human who was raised by the alien Covenant and shares their contempt for humanity


    Production beginning this month, to begin airing in Q1 2021.




    Charlie Murphy should be legally obliged to change her name. Add an initial or something. Shit is just straight up rude. 



  12. Climax (2018)  


    A group of dancers have a party after a rehearsal, things start to get weird and it soon comes to light that the sangria they've all been drinking has been spiked.


    Interesting and unpleasant in equal measure, both in terms of substance and style. Epic soundtrack. 


    Gasper Noé/5 


    It's on Netflix.
