It does mean he's as big a art of the problem as anybody.

I enjoyed Robbie Collin's little dig at Spielberg. I didn't realise he was behind Memoirs of a Geisha.

Also, I do agree with him when it comes to blockbuster cinema, since there haven't been a huge number of genuinely great blockbusters in that time, but to say that there have been hardly any great films suggests that he is either hopelessly nostalgic or hasn't been paying attention. My bet would be that the article has been spun in the most attention-grabbing manner because that gets a lot more hits.

Awesome.

I have a proper Jack Harkness coat. It's getting to be the time of year where I can wear it now, too! =]

Jealous! I've seen photos of people on tumblr wearing them and it makes me wish a) I had enough spare money to buy one, and b) I was male.

On a related note, I saw a guy with a Jack Harkness-esque coat in the big computer cluster in our student union building. It's called 'The Hub'. No word of a lie. It has a little Starbucks kiosk too. I had to text my friend in Glasgow with all this information because there was no-one with me to have a fangirl moment with.

I got mine from here (they only have Bulgarian ones in at present) I thought £40 was quite reasonable for a big coat. Alas mine did not accommodate my tiny t-rex arms, so I gave it away.

Aww, I've bookmarked that page now. I hope you're happy! laugh.gif I have long gorilla arms, so I love things with huge sleeves.

'Smallville' to continue in novel form?

Ha, it's unstoppable. I keep thinking it's finished and then there's another series being advertised on the telly.
Raven
Well, at least the TV series is finished (although there are rumours floating around of a movie, which I think is wishful thinking given The Man of Steel is out next year).
Ade
Wasn't sure whether to put this in the adverts thread instead, but since it's a 'making of' I figured maybe not:


A brief overview of the making of Pixma Printers' 'Bring Colour To Life' advert campaign.

A simple enough TV ad, but it clearly involved some extremely precise techno-wizardry to achieve the end result. Some stunning slo-mo imagery of 'sonic paint sculptures', ending with the ad itself. There are also a handful of nice still photos on the page (in fact, I may have found my next avatar replacement already).

I see Big Brother is lowering the bar - yet again - for the definition of "celebrity".

How the hell can someone whose only claim to fame is that they had an affair with their brother-in-law for seven years be deemed to be a celebrity?

Just looking through who the celebs are, most I've never heard of, and then I see Michael Madsen. ohmy.gif
Raven
Yes, I think he and Natalie Cassidy are the only two I have heard of.

It's just never going to be made. They'll keep doing this though, just to keep hold of the rights.

I share your opinion, as I'm sure do everyone bar a couple of media executives.


If anything's to be done with Akira, then they should make an anime mini-series that follows the manga. No need to remake the movie.

Didn't watch the Golden Globes as I assumed it would be as painful and plainly bollocks as ever, but very pleased Idris Elba and Peter Dinklage won. I'm not a fan of Meryl Streep at the best of times, but she is at her worst as an actress when she's pretending to be surprised she won an award, and ... Matt LeBlanc won a Golden Globe for playing Matt LeBlanc? *mindblown* Never heard of Episodes until last night and, now I've looked into it, I'm wondering if I should check it out.
maian
It's okay. Not particularly good or insightful - it feels very much like the second season of Extras warmed over - but fun enough. LeBlanc is very good in it, mind.

There's some serious talent gone into them.

I'd love to see their version of Rushmore.

The National Television Awards really should be renamed the Popular TV Awards.

Good though he is, I think there are a number of actors who turned in better performances in TV drama series last year than Matt Smith did in Doctor Who, and I'm damn sure Karen Gillan isn't the best actress.

I dunno about it just being a popularity thing, Who won nothing last year. Some strange nominees though.

Still, good to finally see Smith win something, this is his first award for Doctor Who I think.
Raven
When I said Popular TV I meant that the nominated programs are all very much primetime mainstream programs. There has been some good drama on TV over the last year, mostly in the form of one-off dramas, and none of it featured here.

I don't think there is anything in the NTA list that would be considered for a BAFTA drama award except Downton – hell, they’ve got nominations for Torchwood. Freakin’ Torchwood ffs!!

The NTAs are the anti-BAFTAs!
Everlong
Yeah, I was surprised there weren't any Downton actors nominated. Torchwood nominations were weird. Well, John Barrowman was a shocking nomination, I can see why they nominated Eve Myles as she practically carried Miracle Day.

NTAs aren't particularly amazing. Because it's not the drama/comedy nominations that got me, I was alright with them, its the fact that Gary Fucking Barlow got a lifetime achievement. For television. He has been an X-Factor judge for a bloody year!

Next year's should be much better. Black Mirror, Holy Flying Circus, both TIE '88 and TIE '90 (if it's on before winter), and more stuff will eligible. Though I imagine we'll see them in this summer's TV BAFTAs. Proper awards.

I'll wager very few of that will be up for nods in twelve months, it will be wall-to-wall Sherlock* again and the other usual suspects.

*Not that Sherlock doesn't deserve gongs, though.
