    Are you a film buff?

    It always amazed me, when I first did this, just how many "old" films I'd seen in my teens. Especially considering I only really consumed trashy horror films in that time. I must have watched a lot by accident. It is questionable, but Wall-E I do love. Harry Potter films though? Yeah, no...

    "Now Showing"

    Yeah, pretty much this. I was entertained, but it was just nothing special. I think, as almost always these days, the problem is that there isn't much contention or strife in making a film. It's just a machine, and "everything can be done". So things are all just feeling the same. I'm sure it...

    Are you a film buff?

    It appears to have become a Christopher Nolan group **** list. So, I can't take it seriously.

    Are you a film buff?

    The question is though: should we still be using a 12 year old list, it the latest from IMDb? That may throw things out a bit. I'll have to update this list, then do a new one... Only I don't think I trust IMDb anymore.

    I'd love to pretend I even had the slightest idea, but I don't. I do have something niggling away in the back of my mind, though... Back several years ago when I first set all this up. There was something about odd cookie issues. It's gone though, I'm pretty old and my mind is Swiss cheese :D

    Yep, that looks like the code. Firefox doesn't parse it like that. It determines the entire scrollable page on the forums as absolute, not the browser window size. It works fine for most sites, it's just forums, because of the way they stretch and contact dynamically depending on the content. I...

    It's the actual CSS code that is the issue. That's no alternative CSS depending on the browser. I can't remember the exact code, but it's like if you wanted to left align, you would use "left". Chrome left aligns, but Firefox does a silly little song about pixies and goblins before putting it...

    You're giving me PTSD right now. I hate the backgrounds. It took me ages to get the coding in place to have them work, but they still don't work properly. There's a "difference of opinion" on how the CSS for the backgrounds is interpreted by browsers. So on Firefox, they shrink and grow, but...

    "Now Showing"

    Double post, but it's important :D Went to see Last Night in Soho last night. I had some reservations, as the trailers seemed to try to make it look "too intriguing", and I thought (like Baby Driver) that maybe Edgar Wright was promising more than he could deliver. I'm glad to say that I was...

    "Now Showing"

    Ahhh, you're right. It's been 20+ years since I read about this in a Giger biography and got it wrong - it wasn't Lynch's Dune he worked on. It's the animation hand drawn over the top of frames. The shield fight scene really :D It's not the same, but there was a lot of this kind of hand drawn...

    Th13teen vs oblivion

    Yeah, this is a subset of the Alton one. There's nothing really to compare between the two.

    "Now Showing"

    I watched it about three months ago (probably about 3 months after I read the book). It is indeed very rushed at the end. It's odd though, because both films capture something of the essence of the books. The Lynch version captures the almost surreal images the book invokes, plus the plotting...

    "Now Showing"

    Erm... Not really. It's a [pretty accurate] version of possibly one of the most famous science fiction books ever written :D

    "Now Showing"

    I like it, but I always found it to be one of JC's weaker films for some reason. The Omen and Poltergeist do "supernatural scares" better for me, personally. It's still good though. I got to see Poltergeist at the local cinema last week - it was excellent on the big screen. It's aged pretty...
