Film & TV / Re: Doctor Who - Season 8
« Last post by The Legendary Shark on Today at 09:29:43 PM »
Why am I always in the feckin' minority? I thoroughly enjoyed that; from the Doctor as the fairy tale trickster, to the exploration of basic fears, to basic 'monsters' of wolves and tigers - and that line "I don't want to be the last of my kind".  Class project - save the world, heh. I liked the core message too - the planet actually is on our side - it keeps us oxygenated, hydrated, fed and warm despite the fact that we abuse her terribly. There was fear and love and humour and magic and science that didn't make a lick of sense - but I loved it.

So there! :-P

Sometimes you'll find that the person running the class will specify which equipment you'll use during the session. In our classes we would start with something very loose, like charcoal, which gives the drawing more movement. Sorry to be so vague, but I would say ask!

Ugh, hope that clears up for you soon Jim.

Film & TV / Re: 2001: A Space Odyssey - on the big screen
« Last post by Mardroid on Today at 09:00:39 PM »
I think everyone should see their favorite movie on a cinema screen at least once in their lives.

Our local Cineworld did a one-off showing of 'The Thing' a couple of years back. There's not one single frame of that movie I'd change — it's fantastic, and even better on a big screen.

Cheers

Jim

Slightly off topic (but I'll come back to it in a mo'),  I recently bought the box-set of both Thing films. Watching the original on my widescreen TV on the PS3...it appeared letter boxed. I don't mean in the desirable 'fill the screen' way but actually so you saw a smaller screen within your own TV screen with black all around. Black borders at top or bottom is understandable as I understand that with many films the aspect ratio doesn't quite match that of the widescreen TV and it doesn't particularly bother me,  but all around indicates it should fit the width at least.  Tweaking the display settings didn't help much.   Any suggestions appreciated.

Back to topic,  I confess I never made it all the way through either.  I actually found some sequences in rather boring.)  Sorry. I do remember being fascinated by that  very odd bit at the end though (and I liked Hal stuff. It's mainly watching from the start which dragged.) I'd definitely coming consider giving it another chance from the  beginning on the big screen.

I started reading on a weekly basis from 750, buying up back issues back to the late 500s. Stopped reading in the early 900s. 2000AD felt like it was going downhill, with sub-standard stuff like WIREheads and The Corps and Timehouse and VERTIGO was a-calling. Came back intermittently, lured by The Pit, then the return of Nemesis and a few unbroken runs in the 1300s. Came back full time with 1500 for the start of Origins and been here ever since.

The  Order sounds great. As it's set in Prague and is painted by Burns i'm hoping for some beautifuly surreal building designs.

Wanted to do a proper frame for this in the style of the prog 222 cover, but time has passed!  What you see is what you get
