NO. Mental illness isn't the seed of greatness. It's an illness that affects people from every walk of life. It makes your life a misery. Sometimes it will make the life of a great artist, politician, or novelist a misery. It won't make them great, because mentall illness isn't magic.

This is a dangerous,… » 1/25/15 11:49am Sunday 11:49am

Well, overall, this actually counts as an even numbered movie. But it doesn't really matter as the "Even numbered=Good/Odd numbered=Crap" rule hasn't really applied since Star Trek: Nemesis decreed that from now on, all Star Trek movies would be shit. » 1/21/15 11:24pm 1/21/15 11:24pm

It's not "crying wolf" when it's y'know, actually happening. Species are dying off in droves. Extreme weather conditions are on the up. The rainforests and the ice at the poles are both getting smaller. Various security agencies (a demographic not known from spooning with trees) are warning that conflict over… » 1/19/15 1:54am 1/19/15 1:54am

I think this film reads very differently in the UK to how it does in the States. What struck me watching it was just how political its message actually was. It wasn't a vague thing about "cynicism", it was about immigration, pure and simple, from Paddington's tragic backstory and the shop keeper's tale of how he came… » 1/16/15 12:22pm 1/16/15 12:22pm

That's a link to the Huffington Post, which is a different website. Also, sometimes media outlets will use content from multiple people with a range of views, and sometimes those views conflict with each other, so even if a Jezebel writer wrote that all rape jokes are evil regardless of content, they could still have… » 1/12/15 4:32am 1/12/15 4:32am

Okay here's my Doctor Who fan theory: After Ace left the Seventh Doctor, he lost it for a bit, travelled to a medieval world populated by elves, dwarves, halflings and dragons, forgot all about personal hygiene, took an absolute shitload of hallucinogenic mushrooms and started riding around on a sled pulled by rabbits. » 12/10/14 2:05am 12/10/14 2:05am

My pitch for a new Star Trek movie. The Enterprise, on a mission of exploration, comes to an alien planet. There is something strange and/or dangerous on the alien planet, that triggers an adventure for the Enterprise crew. I know, it's out there, it's a bit crazy and unorthodox, but it might just work! » 12/08/14 9:48am 12/08/14 9:48am

Maybe at the end of this film Bond will have an arch nemesis, and so stop being a prequel and start being the James Bond we know! Y'know, like he did at the end of Casino Royale when he got his 007 status and learned how to wear a tuxedo. And at the end of Skyfall when he got Moneypenny and Q and a male M. And at the… » 12/04/14 4:01am 12/04/14 4:01am
