  1. Apart from that being quite a funny review, you get a pos simply for sharing this, because I too am currently locked into the endless stream of Thomas related gumpf that my son loves to watch at the moment. This is very topical for me. I much preferred his Pixar phase, but Thomas is ok I guess and The Great Race is quite enjoyable. The most surprising thing for me is the amount of non-official Thomas & Friends related content made by full grown adults with their toy collections. People also going so far as entirely (and rather poorly) remaking some of the Thomas films with their own toys.
  2. Cheers. I thought it might be a DSLR but the footage is nice and steady and my 600d shakes like buggery if handheld.
  3. Nice work. Can I ask, what did you shoot this with?
  4. That Kindle app is pretty painless. Cheers guys. Bought the book, downloaded and I've just pimped it out on Facebook. Best of luck Goose. Your write ups on here got me through many sleepless nights with a baby/toddler.
  5. Really stupid n00b question, sorry. Can I read this on an iPad? I want to buy it to support Goose's efforts having really enjoyed the posts in here, but I don't have a Kindle or Android device.
  6. Cool. This should be a pretty easy one to keep things rolling.
  7. You don't need a body for a conviction in a murder case, if there's enough evidence to convict. No more of a reach than leaving two prominent blood smears in a car with not a shred of any other DNA evidence or any finger prints anywhere. Or the reach that a bullet was found with Teresa's DNA on it in the garage which didn't produce a single other piece of forensic evidence, no blood, hair, nothing, just this solitary bullet lying on the floor under a shelving unit.
  8. I personally still like the theory that someone else, possibly Scott and Bobby murdered Teresa, burned and then dumped her body and the car on the Avery property knowing the police would be very pleased that Avery turned out to be the suspect. The Manitowoc cops planted the key in the bedroom and the blood in the car to secure Avery's conviction for the crime. It really isn't all that far-fetched based on what we know from the documentary, even if you thought it was biased.
  9. I think it's implied that the officer stumbled across the car and called in the plates to determine the make, model and colour which confirmed it was in fact Teresa's Rav 4. Not a problem, except the officer never officially reported the car as having been found. The car wasn't found until two days later and by a member of the pubic. The defence are implying that the car was located by one of the corrupt officers who instead of officially reporting that it had been found, hid this fact and conspired to plant it on the Avery property thus providing evidence pointing to point to Steve. The officer's defence was that he wasn't calling it in, just confirming the details of the car they were looking for. I think
  10. I can accept the heat of the moment irrational mistakes (to very much oversimplify what you've stated) but he had several days afterwards to think about things and correct them before the police came knocking.
  11. Didn't they dig up and forensically test the concrete in the garage and found no DNA evidence? The reason they dug up the floor was because of a crack and they suspected any blood that had run in there would have been difficult for the suspect to clean?
  12. Yeah, I'd be interested in hearing more from those that believe Avery did it. What are your reasons specifically? I've read some of the evidence that wasn't included in the doc and I still don't see how he could be guilty of having murdered her. He certainly had the opportunity given that she in the area and was at his property. Putting aside the stories that the prosecution laid out in the trial (either the bedroom rape and slaughter or garage shooting) and just basing it on the evidence that was presented, we are expected to believe that he: Killed her in some unknown location. Somewhere that required he move her bleeding body by putting in the back of her own car Burned her and some of her possessions in his own back yard and left some of the remains where they were for someone to find Moved some of the bones to two other locations (which meant that he would have known that the fire didn't destroy the evidence) Cleaned the car of all finger prints but left his own blood smears in obvious places in plain sight Dumped her car on his own property and made a poor attempt to hide it from view Left the Rav 4 car key in his bedroom removing all traces of DNA, including Theresa's, but leaving his own somehow I know Steve isn't meant to have a very high IQ, but those are some pretty odd mistakes to make. I like the idea of a double setup and I don't think it's too farfetched either. It's interesting that a new investigation is supposedly being done on the Rav 4 key. If someone else did murder Theresa then they would have her car keys. It would have been very easy to plant the bones and car on the Avery plot, but would have been more difficult in such a short space of time to get the keys inside Steve's bedroom. The supposed spare Rav 4 key could have been put there by the police.
  13. I went for my second viewing at a very deserted Bluewater and quiet cinema early this morning. Bliss.I enjoyed it very much a second time and as others have said it allows you to take a breath and take it in a bit more without the constant wondering when Luke is going to turn up. It's quite emotional on second viewing. Especially the scene where Han is talking to Leia just before he leaves for the starkiller base To acknowledge your comment, absolutely it is odd. When you watch it after this has been pointed out (although I did think this the first time) it is quite strange when you watch in detail. Chewie just calmly saunters past Leia with no acknowledgment at all from either party and then he can be seen quite clearly in the background just standing there in some shots doing nothing at all while everyone moves around him. It's just so bizarre.
  14. I saw this on the 21st managing to avoid any spoilers and absolutely loved it. I cannot wait to watch it again and it'll be one of the rare occasions that I've gone to watch a film at the cinema more than once. Yes it has it's flaws, but nothing that pulled me out of the experience when I was watching it. In hindsight it is easy to pick holes, but I think what we got was pretty awesome none the less. It really didn't disappoint. As for Rey's sudden increase in force ability, I put a lot of that down to her confidence and belief that she can do it if she tries. Rey has a phenomenal amount of confidence in her abilities and I feel that once she realises she can possibly do it, she's confident about trying to use it and therefore succeeds. It just reminds me of that sequence in ESB where Luke fails to move the X-Wing as he doesn't believe it can be done. It's too big. Yoda even comments that "always with you it cannot be done". He doesn't believe in his ability, or the power of the force so he fails. I think Rey is the opposite. It's still a bit of a stretch but I can buy it. If you accept that Kylo was significantly injured, wasn't in the best mental state and also wasn't actually trying to kill her then I can see why he would be defeated. At the point where he has her at the edge of the abyss and says "I can train you in the ways of the force" it doesn't seem to me that he's trying to kill her. I don't think he is then expecting the sudden show of strength from Rey which puts an already injured man on the back foot. I am really excited to see where they go with this, especially Luke. I thought Finn, Rey and BB-8 were great new characters and I'm happy for the story to go with them.
  15. That's pretty close thanks Sean but not quite right. The one I'm thinking of the guy blurts it out himself and the main guy says something like "that's not quite what we were going for, but ok". Something like that.
  16. It being Christmas, a couple of us were talking about the Bill Murray film Scrooged in the office. My mate thought there was a scene set in a boardroom that's cut from TV where one of the executives says something like "I like young boys". I'm not so sure. I do know what he means but don't think it's from that film. In my head, it's a film where someone is going round the room in a boardroom asking people to say something honest, or shout out something they like, or something like that. Then one of the guys says the line. I thought it was Liar Liar but that's not it. I can't find my copy of Scrooged. It's driving me mad and Google is turning up nothing. Anyone know what film this is? Cheers.
  17. Great interview. She gives zero shits, obviously doesn't really like the whole stupid interview/movie promotion stuff but is having fun with it. The comment at the end "that you know of" lol
  18. This thread reminded me that I was watching inside the actors studio with Clooney a few months back and he brings up the coffee adverts. I thought his reason for doing them was honest and fair enough. As long as I didn't hate the product, I would do it. Skip to 43 minutes http://youtu.be/y0kCqoxe0tI
  19. It's on UK Netflix I watched the trailer after reading the article and then realised that I have actually already seen this. It looks vaguely familiar. It's been so long that I'm going to give it another go. I remember growing up being more fond of Murder by Death. Yet again a great write up Goose. I look forward to the book.
  20. I had problems with my activation when I took out a £2.04 travel policy. Contacted customer services and said it's not working and they activated the account for me. Doesn't help you out right now, but you can still get it activated to use for the next 12 months.
  21. Yep, exactly this. I've always loved this film and have seen it more times than I can remember. Great write up Goose. I'm really pleased you did this one. Your comments say that the commentaries (which I'll definitely have to check out) are on the Icons of Horror website. It's actually Icons of Fright. Here's a link in case anyone wants to check them out http://iconsoffright.com/pirate-commentaries-2/
  22. Very much enjoying reading this thread Goose keep up the good work. There are some great choices in here. I've revisited a few of the films you've written up so far and still love them although suspect nostalgia plays a big part. Will have to see what my son thinks when he's old enough to watch films with me. I've just checked and Fletch is on UK Netflix, so I'm going to have to watch this again. I've seen it a couple of times and always enjoyed it but not since I was a kid. I'm looking forward to what you come up with next. This sort of stuff is right up my street and just short enough that I can read when I do have a bit of free time which is bloody rare with a 1 year old. Awesome stuff!
