Re: Latest DVD Purchases

A while ago I was reading a page online called ‘Great films you might have missed’, and near the top was ‘Pay It Forward’ with Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and the kid from The Sixth Sense. “No really” the article proclaimed: “... its a massively underrated film with a genuinely interesting premise”. My...

Re: Latest Music Purchases.

Metallica ‘The Black Album’ (1991) Apart from the hits like Enter Sandman and Nothing Else Matters this did nothing for me, and I was really surprised because it was everywhere and is a classic album, but it feels so schoolboyish. Lots of ranting about things that don’t need to be ranted about. I l...

Re: So I'm pretty much out of the fandom at this point

I’m the same as Zigzagger and Skyquake; I adored MTMTE and felt sad when the James Roberts material was drawn to a close. I particularly loved the banter here when a new issue came out and we’d try and guess the motivations behind the characters and where the plot-lines would go. I still love going ...

Re: A question about Kup in the All Hail Megatron Coda.

No sooner have I asked than I found the answer at TFWiki. The answer was in the story I was reading, I was just too dumb to figure it out. Here’s the blurb from the wiki: ... (Kup) also had some programming routines installed via Prowl to help lead the Autobots into winning the war: now he could be ...

A question about Kup in the All Hail Megatron Coda.

I was reading ‘Everything in its Right Place’ in the All Hail Megatron coda. Its the one that opens with Springer smacking Prowl around demanding to know about Kup. It’s a brilliant story, but towards the end Prowl mentions about planting particular algorithms in Kup’s brain. What was that? I don’t ...

Re: Latest DVD Purchases

That bad eh? That’s a shame as I’m a sucker for 80’s synth era TV shows. I’d heard it wasn’t as good as Life on Mars, but I didn’t know it was bad. And today I bought another copy of Best in Show (made by the same guys who did Spinal Tap). I lost my original copy and its too good not to have.

Re: Latest DVD Purchases

I managed to get Life on Mars series one and two (which I've never seen) and the complete Fawlty Towers, which I've not seen in donkey's years. I still love buying DVD's, so many people seem to think its old hat now, but maybe with a DVD player that upscales they don't look so bad on larger screen T...

Re: Avengers : Endgame

I saw this yesterday too. I thought it was a big, flabby load of old arse. I tell you what; with this and the letdown of a Game of Thrones episode with the White Walker battle I really felt like a line had been drawn under CGI. I feel totally bored by it now, anything can happen and nothing is inter...

Re: The Transformers Partwork Discussion Thread.

Ah yeah, I always wanted the backstories about Telus and Rotorbolt and their mate that got fried. Them and the guys in the dead end like Wheezel; how did they end up like that, what kin of people were they like in the past etc. Telus and co hinted at this entire subculture of robots that we never kn...

Re: Can someone explain to me why so many people hate Michael Bay's Transformers movies?

Lately here in the UK they've been showing 'Dark of the Moon' on repeat. I turned on the subtitles with the most recent airing and it made the world of difference. There was so much babble that I wasn't comprehending until now. Sam is incredibly annoying, and its not a patch on the first film, but d...

Re: Massive bundle of IDW TF comics on Humble Bundle

Stacks of content here, the 'pay what you want' first tier contains the entire run of the Costa-era Transformers ongoing (which I've been wanting for ages but never sprang for). There's loads of odd stuff like Maximum Dinobots, and the rather impressive Megatron: Origin; which feels to me like the i...

Re: Lost Light - The End - SPOILERS

I also really recommend some of the Spotlight issues for good, one-off size stories. My favourites have been Spotlights: Shockwave, Metroplex, Soundwave and Jazz. If you’re happy with digital you can usually pick these up for 69p each on ComiXology! [Edit] Oh, and of course Chaos Theory, you must re...

Re: Lost Light - The End - SPOILERS

And yeah, like you say sales were apparently low. The number you cite seems to be no brilliant numbers. But it was only counting the physical sales. I don't know what digital sales were like.

Re: Lost Light - The End - SPOILERS

If you liked Last Stand of the Wreckers, then its worth reading the second and third part of that saga if you haven't already! The second part is called 'Sins of the Wreckers;, and the final part is 'Requiem of the Wreckers'. It fits nicely around the MTMTE/Lost Light saga (I'm assuming you've read ...

Re: Lost Light - The End - SPOILERS

Its kinda depressing though; for all the world-building, characterisation and densely interwoven plots it sold to the same five people who also bought RID. No matter how many articles sang MTMTE's praises it seemed to remain at the same number of physical sales for its run. You're producing gold to ...

Re: Lost Light - The End - SPOILERS

I guess you could try the new Transformers comic that's about to start (I believe it kicks off in the middle of March with an all new continuity). I love MTMTE, it feels like a pinnacle in TF storytelling so far and I don't feel too inclined to read further, unless the new series is stupendous of co...

Re: Just a stupid questions?

But why can Bumblebee explode into many pieces and not die? Do all Transformers have this ability? Frenzy kind of did in the first film. Bumblebee is brave though, I think that was the point; to appeal to Optimus' goodness with a show of bravery!

Re: 10 years!

Ten years ago is still four years after Prime's death in the '86 movie. I still remember watching the VHS tape thinking how 2005 was donkeys years away, and I'd be an adult then and stuff. Now here we are in the future, someone really has shot JR and some new pants is taking over the comic!
