  1. So effectively they are telling us how to shop, which, given the broad amount of stuff on offer, is ludicrous.
  2. Godzilla was awe-inspiringly bad - with a few -script tweaks and even worse acting (if that were possible) it could've been a comedy.
  3. Worst of all, is that I knew it was going to be soul-destroyingly bad after about twenty seconds. After the cringeworthy initial dialogue, I realized what I had let myself in for but carried on watching anyway. Everyone in it was so bloody awful, it was surreal - and none of it made much sense. Even the presence of Eva Mendes and Scarlett Johansson couldn't detract from the nightmare. And when the film finally finished, I still had six hours of the flight left. A tip of the hat by the way to the all but forgotten Dck Tracy, which is a close second to the Spirit for me for being so similar - wooden, zero depth, self-indulgent and so poorly directed you didn't care what happened. A vanity project for Beatty and Madonna.
  4. Bugger. At least we can still search for U.S. books on eBay UK to combat the imminent misery. Oh wait...
  5. God in Heaven, help us. I'm afraid it's too late for any of that.
  6. An affront to decency and good manners. Thankfully we have Boris and the other one to sort all this non-cricket behaviour out.
  7. It was either him or Herc, who must himself be dead judging by his complete and total failure to return to and comment on the many reactions to his thread! Lance is a man of few words, but he knows his stuff. He just came to vent.
  8. For who? Gandhi? If Gandhi or his descendants collect comics, which I assume they do, I would say no.
  9. Indeed. It's getting harder and harder to find what you want lately. There were always occasions where books wouldn't show up in searches but it seems to be much worse now. If someone posts a listing called "Dog Pot Yoghurt", I expect that to come up if I search for "Dog Pot Yoghurt" in 'All Categories', whether they posted it in the Yoghurt category or Fish Fingers category. An exact wording title match should always appear regardless. And surely, they'd get more sales if it did? Dog Pot Yoghurt - great series! Although I favour the Sanskrit variants. As I said, it's refinement for the sake of it. Whether the move is counter-intuitive is beside the point, as it's all about "progress".
  10. The Spirit - worst film ever, and worst comic film ever - worse than Batman And Robin, Spawn, Catwoman, Elektra, etc. Mind numbing. Sat through it on a plane back from Seattle (I think) as there was nothing else to watch. Hellish!!!
  11. Usually their methodology involves making it impossible for anyone to datamine anything, although this latest move is just contemptuous, really.
  12. Thought that was just me - can't figure out why they need to continually refine the system for its own sake. Maybe they wants less deals, or maybe No Deal.
  13. They're the threads I've generally enjoyed reading the most over the last 16 years - they're fine where they are.
  14. Congrats Andy on acquiring your grail. Awesome book!
  15. Both Shock Illustrateds, Strange Worlds 3, After Dark 8 per PM
