I can't say from personal experience, but if you want Print versions is it worth waiting and then buying lots of issues at once from the web store? I can't see the shipping increasing dramatically over adding single issues, so as long as the start price for shipping fair that might work. Everything I've ordered from the store has arrived in perfect condition. The only downside to this is you will have to wait between orders. Could be an alternative though?

Help! / Re: Approaches to That London
« on: 24 April, 2017, 03:52:35 pm »
Been a while but I believe Epping is the farthest station out of the city on the red line. M11 from Standsted to there. And the red line takes you to St. Pauls which is a quick jog to where you want to go. So assuming you can find somewhere cheap to sleep in Epping that's what I would do.

But I'm not a Londoner nor have I visited for a fairly long time so maybe mines not the best advice.

After giving it some thought I have decided that I am against the start rating. I think that instead ratings should come in just 2 flavors, would recommend or would not recommend. And with that I'm off to bed. Goodnight.

One unregulated business is the trade in cannabis, which - in my experience - offers goods of varying quality

This i can confirm.

Nintendo could learn a few things from that. Why do I feel I need one so badly? Damn you nostalgia!

I remember the cover to Psycho Fox. Never got to play it though. My mum probably didn't want me playing a game with the word Psycho in the title. Fair enough I suppose. Haven't gone to jail yet.

It wasn't perfect but it was entertaining and enjoyable. I stand by my opening statement. Sites like those do more harm than good for films IMO.

He cares because the ratings might influence whether people see a particular film or not.

Exactly. Lets say I'm a casual movie go-er looking at whats on at my local cinema.

https://www.cineworld.co.uk/cinemas/wolverhampton

Rules Don't Apply has one star next to it. I don't need to read the synopsis. I can see from the single star it is going to be crap and not worth my time. Fate Of The Furious has four stars so it must be pretty good. So I'll go and see that.

My money then goes into the pockets of the makers of the Furious film which means a never ending stream of sequels is churned out while we wait an eternity for our Dredd sequel.

So the reason I hate film ratings is because it plays a part in films that should be made, not being made. And puts people off seeing films that might be brilliant, but because some hack writing for your newspaper of choice didn't like it means that a large number of people wont.

Film & TV / IMDB IS SCUM (so is rotten tomatoes)

I know of a few people who will use internet ratings of films to argue if a film is good or not. I hated Logan. Most disappointing film I've ever seen. But apparently it's just me because rotten tomatoes has it standing at 92%

But if you were to believe IMDBs rating system :

Fight Club is better than Alien
Gladiator is better than The Shining
The Departed is better than Taxi Driver

and Batman Begins is a better film than Raging Bull, Heat, Blade Runner, The Big Lebowski, The Deer Hunter, Fargo, No Country For Old Men, The Life Of Brian, Jurassic Park....

Regardless of if you use the scores these websites give to decide on what film to see, the fact is these numbers do impact film viewing for a lot of people. This is one of the reasons we have 8 (BLOODY EIGHT!) Fast And Furious films. I'm not sure where I'm going with this...but there is a point somewhere. I'll leave it to you to figure out.

Here are some classics I felt are worthy of reminder :

Dead google video links! - https://forums.2000adonline.com/index.php?topic=17414.0

When there was still excitement for a Halo game - https://forums.2000adonline.com/index.php?topic=20817.0

I wonder what people will be saying about now in 10 years time...

Just woke from a dream that I was late for school which is a bit odd since I didn't used to worry about being late when I went. What's that all about then?
