I'm not sure if I get what you are saying ID. I'm not sure Cameron is particularly smug, he isn't remotely as smug as the Merkosy approach which is basically "we know better then everybody so do as we say" with some of the snide comments thrown at Britains direction for pointing out their plans may ...

On topic, The Cannonball Run works simply beacuase it's actors make it work. It's a intentionally cheesy script with a bunch of barely 2d sterotypes but the whole cast gets it perfectly playing it both cheesy and natural. I recall a film called Rat Race with John Cleese which tried that type of film...

I've seen both of those... I'm not entirely sure where or when, though.

And is Eyepatch woman's plot completely pointlessly stupid or is it just me? All she needs is someone to come out the lake with a gun and shoot him. Why the whole Machiavelli routine? She's got some soldiers who could do it for her. Or even just grab the gun and do it herself. Maybe it's something ...

It was a sad old time yesterday, I was looking up the actors of The Next Generation on Wikipedia; Data is 64!!!!!! I'm shocked how much time has passed. Riker looks like a chunky fat bastard now, and Wesley Crusher looks like a hick with a slightly nerdy undercurrent (38 years old). The actor who p...

In reference to Jurrasic Park, I agree they stand up well, but both the first and second one benefit from a lot of major set pieces being set at night and in the rain, masks any potential dating of effect quite well. The daylight scenes, such as the Brontosaurus do look a bit iffy, but considering ...

I loved this 2 parter. Genuinely one of the best that has been done in new Who and some nice, and not overplayed, moral ponderings which added a lot of thoughtful depth to this particular story. The only flaw in the 2 parter was the fact The flesh woman and Doctor's death while well done were slight...

Did they? The impression I got from what I've been reading is that the SEALs were sent in with explicit orders to kill him. You are reading rubbish then. It's been quoted several times that they could take him alive, Obama's anti-terroist chief said this specifically to the media on TV but they did...

Conveniently it also prevents anyone else from performing DNA tests on his corpse to prove his identity. And any video released after his death can easily have been recorded before his death just for this kinda situation. That said though, I wish they should have tried capturing him alive and then ...

Oh, definitely. I'm not saying he doesn't deserve any credit, and I'm not at all saying that this is all the product of the Bush administration.

Except that a lot of the intel work took place 4-6 years ago. This wasn't just Obama's administration. It was a loooooong process. It was, hence why I said "Obama looks gold".

The big irritant, is that there was no reason given for Nixon and Shepard seemingly being able to resist the Silence's mind voodoo. Why wouldn't the later have hunted them down for real if that was what he'd been told? And wouldn't they just instruct Nixon to ignore the Doctor and/or kill him (cons...
