  1. I watched Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith because I'm getting bullied by someone at work to watch all of the Clone Wars series, then I had to watch RotS before starting on Bad Batch and Rebels. Anyway, RotS is 95% garbage 5% great, but if you treat the last 4 episodes of Clone Wars like a film then it's probably my favourite Star Wars film ever (yes, even better than Phantom Menace).
  2. You should watch it. It's got Hugh Dancy in it. Not in a literal sense, but I feel it's imbued with his spirit.
  3. Blimey, it's good innit?
  4. of his trousers
  5. You spoke to people on the tube? You're doing the tube wrong.
  6. I should explain. Everybody likes you, because you're great, so when you started posting less loads of people thought "well, what's the point if Wrong Name isn't here?" You're an influencer. Those that remained were left with me and that just drove the rest off.
  7. Quickie question: does Rhaenys rhyme with 'anus' or 'peenis'?
  8. I miss when I had a custom rank. It made me feel special. Now I'm a 'Special Effects Co-ordinator" which I think means NEEEEEEERD. This place used to be a community, which was nice as I have no friends. I think that's precisely the case.
  9. 100+ minutes of women talking? Sounds like my worst nightmare. I'm pretty sure I'm the first person in the world to make a joke like that.
  10. Who is to say what is right and what is wrong? Humans struggle with the grey areas of morals and ethics, so AI doesn't stand a chance.
  11. Well this is quite the thread.
  12. I would like to cheer, but for the realisation of how the money recouped will likely be spent. (Also, I never cheer, merely nod in approval.)
  13. Ok. I've got this. Costas was in Saw 52 with Cary Elwes, who was in Princess Bride with Billy Crystal, who was in When Harry met Sally with Meg Ryan, who was in You've Got Mail with Tom Hanks, who was in Saving Private Ryan with Matt Damon, who was in everything with Ben Affleck, who was in Pearl Harbour with Kate Beckinsale, who was in Underworld:Something with Bill Nighy, who was in Love Actually with Hugh Grant, who was in Cloud Atlas with Tom Hanks who was in Apollo 13 with Kevin Bacon. Costas Mandylor's Bacon Number is 11. Next up: Costas Mandylor but sensibly.
  14. I think you need to call Popaholics Anonymous. Or possibly Cumberbatchaholics. That's too clunky... Cumberbolics? Cumaholics? Maybe just stick with Cumberbatchaholics.
  15. Oh for sure, the space is always a problem and worse this year. Not their fault that less halls were available, but you'd think they'd just invite less guests or sumfink. Ideally you'd get one dedicated hall for with all of the photoshoot areas, with plenty of room for queuing (and waiting). Also a larger area to fit all of the autograph desks in. Of course, hiring more halls means more expense, which means inviting more guests, selling more entry tickets, and generally just charging more. Possibly the best set up I've seen for photoshoots was at a con that I won't name because I'm a good boy (but it involved walking and stalking). I believe they had an outside company running it, and they used a large hall with 4 or 5 photo areas at one end. Each area had several different numbered queuing lines which went all the way across the hall. There was also an electronic screen saying who can go to which line - e.g. VIP tickets for guest x go to line 8, regular tickets for x go to 9, 10 and 11. Or something like that anyway. The flip side was that prices for photos were horrendous. Like, vomit-inducingly high. Also, I think the company ended up ripping a load of people off or something. Swings and roundabouts, innit?
