  1. As I mentioned in Rik’s article about the Batfleck controversy, I think Goyer staying on as the writer is more of an issue than Affleck.

    Great show again guys.

    Star Trek Into Darkness was the Wrath of Khan? Hadn’t heard this even mentioned! Now I have even less desire to see it :/

    Regarding superhero team-ups, as long as the films continue to be as fun as Iron Man 3, personally I can easily forgive some logical gaps along the lines of ‘where is everyone else’. I thought it handled the now expanded universe pretty well, also.
    Cheers for the episode!

    I wouldn’t say I’m bored of comic book films, I used to go out of my way to watch every one released even when the reviews panned them, now with the sheer volume of comic book films that are released I find myself willing to wait longer or even skip many of them all together.

     

    Also guys spare a thought for the travesty that has been happening in the UK for several years no TV station in the UK has ever aired seasons 2, 3 or 4 of Breaking Bad.

    Two episodes into FNL and I’m done. My eyes hurt from all the camera shake, it’s a fucking joke.

    Yeah I have another subscription running for the next 5 months then I’m on it. I was quite impressed to hear that UK Netflix was getting it in line with the US broadcasts.

    I just find it incredible that a show that is rated possibly the greatest show of all time (it’s joint 3rd with The Wire and Game of Thrones behind Band of Brothers & Planet Earth on IMDB) has never been broadcast in the UK.

     

    I saw the first season a couple of years ago and someone I know was diagnosed with incurable cancer and it just wasn’t comfortable watching.

    That was my wife’s father and it’s a show I want to share with her so I have waited a time of “mourning” before we feel comfortable watching the show. Luckily due to it’s ridiculous absence for our telly I am still completely unspoilt.

    I actually didn’t mind into darkness (I watched it this week as well).  It was an alright movie not the best but not the worst.  In fact I would rate it somewhere in the middle of the star trek films in general it was by no means the undiscovered country.  The point about the other ship being faster and more heavily armed there is a bit of exposition by Khan talking about it and I don’t have that huge an issue with it.  We know he has been designing the weapons system and Scotty does say something along the lines of what the hell is the admiral doing with my warp equation.

    Now onto the major bone of contention I have with that movie and Dave I don’t know how you missed this and Jitterbug maybe noone has pointed this out.  The enterprise gets from Klingon space to near earth incredibly quickly far to quickly in terms of the star trek universe.  Not isn’t the big problem though.  The big problem is that the enterprise gets disabled and the hell blown out of it in orbit of a planet.  The planet turns out to be earth but the admiral says they will just say they went rogue in deep space and had to be destroyed.  So noone would notice the massive ship to ship battle going on above the capital planet of the federation?  Kind of a long stretch that one.

    Hi guys nice discussion without Yoshi lol quite to the point lol. And I must say that I liked Star Trek into darkness and even do it had lots of flaws as a film where things where brushed over and not explained properly, I still think it was a good action flick. TBH I really can’t be bothered to go into all the stupid stuff because when I think about for even a few seconds I can spot so many things wrong it would take to much energy and time to list and rant about it all. One thing that did get me was when spock and khan where fighting and khan throws spock to the edge of a vehicle or platform they where fighting on in the next cut spock “teleports” and is far enough away from the edge to get up and carry on fighting, but meh I still liked it lol.

    This is to dave stop watching revolution I mean why would you bother, that was a terrible show and I watch it – did not finish it – and it makes no sense, stop it NOW before you go insane lol.

    I really look forward to watching the next 300 film, I loved the first one and I am so sad that all those awesome characters are died but I think I might enjoy this next film. I am not very sure about 47 ronin it could be good but the story is an Japanese legend and I think it could mess with things they should not and piss off a lot of Japanese people for no good reason. 

    The Hunger Games is a much better book and a good fun read and the films have a lot more hype around them but it all comes from the books being awesome.
