Top work Abbie Turns out I have seen 67% of DIF films. I need to sit down and watch the rest if only to listen to the commentaries!

On one of the Extended Editions Teague said something like "Oh, as fans I know you guys listen to ALL of them!" and we all meekishly nodded.

He might have sussed us out now!

I didn't think it could get any worse, then James Corden showed up...

Oh totally.

I just miss films that actually end. I was saying to Owen that ironically one of the few places you can get a stand-alone blockbuster these days is the Star Wars spin-offs.

I really enjoyed Stand and Ollie, I don’t know much about Laurel and Hardy outside of seeing their films on afternoon telly when I was very, very young but the story of the double act that’s been through it’s ups and downs really hit home.

The performances really blew me away, Steve Coogan, who is perhaps best known for yelling “Dan” in a car park and John C. Riley who is usually an indicator that a film will be bad were really on top form.

Really enjoyable film and by the end I had a bit of a tear in my eye, I need to track down more silent comedies.

It's pretty much ruined original storytelling on a big scale. What are kids these days growing up on in terms of hit movies? Outside of original Pixar movies and . . . Frozen?

I don't think you're wrong, but it's also not anything new. You grew up with the Prequels and turned out just fine!

But obviously, you're right. These kids today don't even know they're born!

No that's a boggart. A bogoth is when a store throws a buy one, get one sale.

No no no, Bogoth is what Owen tells his mum when she tells him to put down Pokemon and go outside and play with the other children!

So... like Boter's a goth now?

What? Surely if one party doesn't turn up the other win it by a landslide?

Anyone care to jump on mic to discuss Game Of Thrones?

Abbie wrote:

The issue isn't even how much content they're pumping out, it's that it's completely broken the theatrical distribution model. I checked AMC showtimes near me yesterday and there are literally like five non-MCU movies showing on screens right now, getting three or four screenings a day.

So we're back to Sorcerer flopping cos Star Wars got released?

Hey cool, it's Professor Brian Cox with his key-tar!

He's just dropped me a message to say he's out of surgery and waiting for sensation to return to his legs.

Presumably in the back of a pussy wagon.

The trailers make it look like a lot of fun in the it's wasted on kids variety. It's disappointing it's not doing well, but I can't actually think of the last time a live action film aimed at kids was popular. The Goonies?

I've been a fan of Joe Cornish since New Years Day 1999, so I hope this doesn't stop him doing more.

Ant-Man And The Wasp was a letdown after Infinity War

Probably just me, but I actually enjoyed it more.

I only went to the cinema a handful of times this year and twice of those were for Marvel. I get everyones points about Marvel not really having consequences but then Benedict Wong says something about Doctor Stranges favourite take away and I realise I'm really enjoying myself.

We watched MI: Fallout a second time on Blu-Ray the other night and that totally holds up.

I've not had a chance to see Spiderverse yet but I'll probably catch it when it comes out on disc.

I took the piss on twitter over your including Death Of Stalin, which is a great film and more people need to watch it because we often do not get Oscar nominated films released until after the awards have come and gone and many times I have been told that my best of the year choices were invalid because a film had been released somewhere else in a different year.

Glad to hear your work is picking up, I know that isn't the case for all publishers, but I hope it allows you to take on a bigger team so there is not as much pressure on yourself.
