As another pointed out, Mr Potter in It's A Wonderful Life (controversially, upon the film's release) gets away scot free with the $8000 he kept from George and his uncle. But part of the point there is that he doesn't matter, George and the people are the ones that matter, so their victory isn't determined by Mr… » 3/02/15 3:00pm Monday 3:00pm

Wait, some people need to be told what an audio play is? I mean, everyone has different experiences, but seriously? To me that'd be like being told what music is. I was brought up listening to radio dramas and comedies - particularly on long car journeys - and I've always much preferred a cast of actors telling the… » 2/27/15 6:43pm Friday 6:43pm

Regrettably, astonishingly, it is blue and black. I didn't believe it until I converted the image to negative... which miraculously DOES give white and gold (gold with white stripes this time; the white taking the place of the 'black' and the gold taking the place of the 'blue'). » 2/26/15 10:10pm 2/26/15 10:10pm

I know everyone's been obsessed with Agent Carter for the last seven weeks (mostly justifiably), but I'm just been aching to get back to the SHIELD story.

I'd actually argue that this edit makes sense - it's just done horribly. After all, Anakin never looked like he does in the original version anyway, because he was Hayden Christensen until he was burnt to a crisp. Putting Christensen enforces that this is Anakin the Jedi, not Vader the Sith, who's returned. » 2/24/15 7:11pm 2/24/15 7:11pm

Not bad. But I wish (in the slower numbers) she wouldn't clip so many of the notes, like she's eager to get the word finished. Then there's quite a bit of sliding off other notes. She's no Gerard Butler, but it's still unnecessary. The violins don't get away with that, why should the singer? » 2/23/15 7:31am 2/23/15 7:31am
