The only real problem I had with Alita was the complete and utter lack of an ending. So, yes, please do more.

While we’re doing decent books with much more famous adaptations someone should take another look at This Island Earth. There is lots of interesting stuff to work with in that book and it’s dramatically different from the film. It’s another one of those things with a title where the adaptation somehow manages to keep

My impression of the first trailer and what I’d heard of the comics rather turned me off and made me think it all seemed rather mean-spirited and unpleasant but I’ve got to say I’m very glad I gave it a try as I really enjoyed it.

I love the fifth book but please, please, please either dramatically change or skip the sixth; It was ABYSMAL.

I was actually glad after my day off was over and I could go to work because of the air conditioning!

Maybe don’t mangle all the dialogue and cut off the jokes before they’ve even got going this time around.

It’s hardly a stupid nitpick though is it? Thor is his sodding name not his job title. If they were all called The God of Thunder then it’s a different kettle of fish.

I love the idea of Natalie Portman coming back and being the Goddess of Thunder but I’ll never get my head around the idea that she is called Thor. It’s like Falcon taking on the mantle of Captain America and changing his name to Steve! It just seems monumentally daft to me.

I prefer the ‘tail landing’ Roci though I always thought it wasn’t especially convincing it could go into an atmosphere at all, let alone take off and land. Still, at least they won’t have to deal with sideways sets!

Well I suppose it’s the closest I’ll ever get to seeing Nemesis the Warlock in ‘live action’ and one property I NEVER expected to get the TV treatment.

Oh god I hadn’t heard that. That Day of the Triffids series was awful , unfortunately. The only plus side is that there was already a pretty much perfect adaptation already.

Why is that you wait ages for an adaptation of War of the Worlds and then multiple versions turn up at once. Even more incredibly they almost all inevitably suck to lesser or greater degree!

The only think stunning about this is than anyone thought it was a good idea. STOP REMAKING GOOD FILMS! TRY THE ONES THAT HAD POTENTIAL BUT WERE RUBBISH!!!

They should just do Imajica or Weaveworld though the first one in particular would cost all the money.

I loved Captain Marvel and had no problems with Brie Larsen but I think you are rather assuming his reasoning and putting words in his mouth. You can say you disagree with someone call someone a bad actor without assuming it’s all about gender.

I love Station Eleven but I’m struggling to see it as a series.

Yes!! And while you’re doing that, do Dark Conspiracy as well!!

I think it was the Michael Bay one that really cracked me up:)

I think sometimes you just have to a acknowledge that a mystery is far, far more enticing than the explanation. I don’t think this one really needs an explanation and being able to say “It’s God’s plan” gives them the ultimate (if annoying) get out clause.

I’ve been enjoying Years and Years, not least because RTD seems to have resisted some of the more OTT tendencies he had in DW. Well, I say enjoying but the first episode in particular seemed to mesh uncomfortably close with reality that it was not exactly as ‘escapist’ as I’d like. In particular, slipping some
