No, what I mean is what a grand, self-important, some would say perhaps, pretentious, title far what is basically a release with so little effort put into it. For ctying out loud, no matter what you think of The Morning Report, they couldn't even be bothered to use branching to present both versions...

So, Dr Who has been piquing my interest lately, but I'm not sure where to start. From what I understand, it's been going on since the sixties. That seems like a LOT of catching up to do, since I've never even seen one episode. If I do go about watching it, it's going to be a lot of work on my part ...

Doctor Who

The young Kazran Sardick meets "the Ghost of Christmas Future" - A Christmas Carol

The single best "twist" on A Christmas Carol ever and the scene and the scenes leading up to it are written, acted and filmed to perfection.

Silent Hill Yes, I have the superb French 2 disc Blu-ray with amongst others re-scalable PiP tracks (B-Roll footage and the movie without digital effects), two long-form documentaries and more… But there's something missing. The release doesn't examine the fiction of the Silent Hill series enough. ...

European comics are just not meant to be adapted to the silver screen. American superhero comics translate well to live-action/CGI, but the European comics are far too different to succeed in that way. The Smurfs in CGI and real life Gargamel looks ridiculous, as did the live actions versions of As...

The site isn't really doing anything to violate Google's terms and conditions. Again, I've tried to find cross-domain links, but I can't. The redirect seems to be working fine (although again, because I'm at work, I've only had a few minutes). The number of links on the front page MAY be an issue - ...

The formatting of the page shouldn't really matter - there's plenty of text only or minimal HTML pages/sites that do well enough on Google. Google are primarily interested in the content of a page, and UD/DVD has lots of content. It's really not in their interest to filter out "amateur" pa...

If it's a company like the Disney company that's still in existence then the copyright shouldn't expire. In what respect is it "theirs" - is anyone at Disney today who was involved in the creation of Snow White (for example)? What about the people who did make it when employed by Disney? ...

For copyright I think the lifetime + 20 years or 70 years rule is fine. Should a work of art be self-published then I think its fair for the creator to benefit for his lifetime. I'm not so sure his/her estate should though, so that seems correct to me. After all, for most creative people, being crea...

Firstly, I've not and never have condones piracy. I personally don't think its required and never will. Yes, the vault system may have been in place for years and years, but it doesn't alter the fact its only done for money, and they wouldn't be able to do it if they didn't have a monopoly on that c...

I think it's fair for Disney to own their own interpretations of characters when so many are not really their own creations. Is Disney really stoping others from making Snow White, Cinderella or Zorro movies becuase they renew the version they made? Disney does not own a monopoly on these stories s...

I'm guessing the reason Patents expire is so that there can be competition. After all, every Western economy (perhaps now with a fall of communism every economy at all) is based around competition. You need competition or else you have monopoly. Monopolies have been shown to be slow to adapt, reluct...

I'm sick of copyrights being extended and extended and never ending. They need to expire, end of story. No they don't. Why should someone lose ownership of something just because of time gone buy? It the US, the right to private property exists. As long as the company or family still exists, why sh...

Hey "ajmrowland" the "warp your fragile little minds" title of my initial post was a conceit, based on Eric Cartman's speech in South Park. As you say, Skins does not glamorise or condone the more excessive behaviours of its characters. It just acknowledges that this sort of beha...

Oh good Lord. There's talks about making a US series of Misfits.

:roll: As if they didn't learn from the US Skins mistake. Isn't a definition of insanity to keep making the same mistakes? Some things just aren't suitable for the US market.
