    Women Talking was a very well acted and well written film. It did feel slow though and lacked a backstory that would have added more context to the story.

    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.

    I know it looks like I bumped the thread, but I didn't bump the thread a dirty bot bumped the thread. Dirty bot's post got deleted, thus mine looked weird. It is good, however, to learn that this place was rather creepy back in 2004.

    Having said that, if these domestic robots are SO advanced why is it so difficult to teach them the difference between right and wrong

    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.

    Nearly two months and it's a sad day. Got to a point where I don't think I can fit any more in so all my gaming pops(well most) will be getting sold. 

    Somehow, somewhere I can hear a blue bear cheering..... 

    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.)

    Next name: Costas Mandylor

    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.

    I think this event has shown they need to rethink how they deal with a few things but I think it was definitely affected by the reduced space and not having many viable options maybe.

    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?

    So for the auto area it could list it by guest type, Diamond & non diamond, and then under each list who to call when.  So DP Guest Call DP Batch 1, Batch 1-2 ect then All DP's and VQ 1-30 and so on.  Then you can list all the rules, like where Access go, what priority they have in the queue and so on.  It doesn't need to be huge with tons of info but a basic 'this is how this area works' that crew and attendees can refer to might be helpful.

    They should put something like that up on the walls so the proletariat can see it. One for autos and one for photoshoots. 

    Honestly there are some pretty simple ideas that would be easy to do and help a lot, and I've no idea why they don't get done.

    I wont write on the facebook pages because at most they are toxic so im going to be suggestive on what was good and what could be done better on here as its a nicer community.

    It's a low bar, but I think we just about clear it.

    His agent, Hamilton Hodell, has sent a message - "To those planning on coming along to see me this weekend, I’m afraid I have some sad news. Due to unforeseen personal circumstances, I unfortunately am no longer able to attend. I am absolutely gutted and hope to meet you all in person soon.

    Dang it. I've been wanting to meet Hamilton Hodell for years.

    I know we have David harbour and it’s a long shot but how about bull Pullman as currently both are at the west end currently this weekend :).

    I'd guess they've already enquired. I can imagine the scene now...

    Bill Pullman is sat in his theatre dressing room, in the middle of a call with his agent. He does not seem happy...

    "WHAT??? You want me to do a CONVENTION??? Spend the weekend surrounded by a bunch of sweaty NERDS??? I'm Bill frickin' Pullman, not some random third stormtrooper from the left! What kind of sad, DESPERATE failing actor would agree to do one of those?"

    He angrily hangs up his phone, and screams an obscenity.

    Moments later, David Harbour walks into the room...

    "Hey Bill! Guess what I'm doing this weekend..."
