Posted in: Swarmed with tourists, town blocks off popular Mount Fuji viewing spot See in context

I'm failing to see just how that is going to stop anyone though. I'm tall enough to just reach my camera over the top of that barrier and still get the shot I want.

I can't say I was overly impressed with Fury Road outside some of the stunts so will probably wait for Furiosa to arrive on a streaming platform.

How can Japan companies design earthquake proof buildings yet are utterly incompetent in making them toddler proof?

Posted in: 'Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire' clears a low bar See in context

I much prefer to sit through another Ghostbusters movie then read another article like this.

The 2016 travesty is to blame for the lower turn out of Afterlife, once bitten, twice shy as they say.

I’m glad for the female-led 2016 “Ghostbusters.”

Says it all really.

How about one more article in a month or so with the box office figures? We'll see if the movie should have been made or not at that point.

Posted in: Man United and Chelsea grab late winners in FA Cup See in context

Kind of glad that Leeds were beaten by Chelsea, better off concentrating on returning to the top flight. Handy that Leicester won their game so they'll have to play one game extra now in the final run up.

@starpunk, I remember it as well and like you, I was frustrated that I was on the wrong side of the planet to see it.

Posted in: Beatles to get a Fab Four of biopics, with a movie each for Paul, John, George and Ringo See in context

I found the Queen and Elton biopics enjoyable but the Elvis film was a total snoozefest for me and I didn't finish watching it, not sure I even made it the halfway point of the film.

Posted in: Strike at Eiffel Tower closes one of world's most popular monuments to visitors See in context

Looks great from a distance but when you get up close and see the mess of security fences surrounding the base, the majesty of the tower does diminish a bit. At least they've spent some money and put some half decent fencing in place since my visit several years ago.

Posted in: Paul McCartney and Wings' release bare bones 'Band on the Run' on 50th anniversary See in context

There's only so many times an album can be rereleased/remastered/re-whatever and it's great that McCartney has taken things in a different direction for the 50th edition. More artists need to release albums in such a way so fans can appreciate how songs sound at different times in their production.

Posted in: Bournemouth-Luton to be replayed in full after Lockyer collapse See in context

I wonder if this collapse will signal his retirement, two of them in the space of 7-months is not a good sign.

Posted in: British teenagers convicted of murder of transgender girl See in context

I believe the judge is looking at a life sentence for the pair though that means about 20-25 years in reality, with parole around their late 30's/early 40's.

Crazy part is how the killers immediately turned on each other, using the same story to pin the crime on the other. Glad the jury decided on sending them both down for the crime.

Posted in: FIFA's rebooted Club World Cup could change face of soccer and spark a player backlash See in context

No-one cares about the Club World Cup, ask fans to reel off what trophies their club has won and it'll always be the League, followed by the local Cup finals and whatever continental trophies like the Champions League. Very few will even bother to mention if their team won the Club World Cup even if its the only thing their team won that season as it's such a non-entity.

Posted in: Japan, UK and Italy formally establish joint body to develop new advanced fighter jet See in context

Calling it now, the whole thing will go massively over-budget by many billions of pounds/dollars/euros/yen and end up arriving around 2040 at the earliest with only half the promised specifications.

Posted in: 'Grand Theft Auto VI' trailer drops, flagging 2025 release See in context

It's hilarious reading all the quotes by fanboi's on social media absolutely creaming themselves over the trailer, so many believe the trailer is what the game will actually be like.

Apparently though, I won't get to play the game until at least 2026 as I use a PC for all my gaming needs, though I won't buy the game until it is at least half-price so maybe 2028 at the earliest.

Posted in: Diplomatic spat over the Parthenon Marbles scuttles meeting of British and Greek leaders See in context

The real issue is that the museum has so many artefacts from other cultures, that to give one set back to a country will open the flood gates for other countries to demand the same. The British Museum would end up half empty so the Government are deliberately gatekeeping it all. Your average Brit couldn't care less and wouldn't miss a lot of this stuff being sent back to where they originated.

Luton will hopefully be relegated into the lower leagues soon, where they belong.

A bit harsh to condemn an entire club over a minority of idiots who were doing the chanting.

Posted in: New Beatles song set to reach number one on UK singles chart See in context

I found the song to be OK and enjoyable, I would've preferred an unreleased song written in the 60's then just a Lennon demo again. I do hope it gets to number 1 in the UK, even for one week.

One thing I didn't like though is the music video, the goofiness just doesn't sit with the song in my opinion and they could've done a lot better with the archive they had on hand.

He's mostly remembered in the UK for his role alongside Joanna Lumley in Sapphire & Steel, well, at least for those old enough to remember the show.

Posted in: YouTube cuts off Russell Brand's ad revenues after sexual assault allegations See in context

Once again, another man who is guilty until proven innocent.

I can't stand Brand and find him extremely annoying and unfunny but he's being proven guilty in the court of social media by accusations alone and no evidence.

Muhammed Ali, Billy Connelly, Rod Hull & Emu, Miss Piggy and Kermit, Roy Castle/Buddy Rich and running late surprise guest Sammy Davis Jr, and Kenny Everitt. Just some of the guests that spring to mind for me.

Right, I'm quite sure that the critics on here would turn down 100 million euros a year if given the choice. Easy to go "blah, blah, blah, human rights, I wouldn't do it" when that sort of cash isn't being waved under your nose.

walk unsafe streets to violently assaulted or killed (especially if Asian) doesn’t help.

Says more about the state of 'murica then anything else.

Not something a Londoner would have had to put forward as a counter argument when the congestion charge was brought in.
