Huh.

He said the film would take a fresh approach to the show, which first appeared on TV in 1963.

NO!

Yates said it would take "two to three years to get it right" as the show needs "quite a radical transformation".

NO!

"Russell T Davies and then Steven Moffat have done their own transformations, which were fantastic, but we have to put that aside and start from scratch," he said.

NO!

Yates is reported to be working with the head of LA-based BBC Worldwide Productions, Jane Tranter.

NO!

A BBC spokesman said: "A Doctor Who feature film remains in development with BBC Worldwide Productions in Los Angeles.

NO!

"The project is unlikely to reach cinemas for several years and as yet there is no script, cast or production crew in place."

Also, I want to see The Iron Lady. Looks like a stellar performance and I want to see how it covers the less-than-appreciable facets of her rule (read - everything north and west of London and everything in Ireland). I have low expectations of actually tackling this material but whatever

So I'm finally watching A Serbian Film.
The sleaze is coming off it in waves, all I can taste is cigarettes watching this.

HAHAHA THE ENDING IS DIVINE!

And another note: the holidays completely inhibit my sense of time. I forgot I went to an exam earlier today.

So, Carter Burwell, one of my favourite composers, who's done some of the best film themes around...







Also does all the music for the Twilight films.

Interesting.

See the second one, preferably stoned out of your mind. The first is brilliant, but the second reaches a new level of totally bizarre.

I'm not even sure if the second one is an action film, or simply an exercise in trippy cinematography and immature jokes mixed with a GTA game. It helps that it's got the exact same sense of humour as this forum (Drug fueled, racist, strange). It's not as good as the first sober, but twice as good stoned.

I just love how camp the action is. It's an action movie with the action turned up so high it becomes funny.

Not a film, but for ages I've been looking for a properly subversive Irish TV series. Father Ted is great, but it's fairly mild, really. I was looking for something bizarre and profane, and I finally found it. I'd heard it about it before, but I'd never checked it out. It's demented.

Funny bit starts at 1:12

Indeed. I only recently watched MP's Flying Circus when stoned. I'd never seen it inebriated. God, it's so weird. My sense of humour wouldn't exist if not for them.

Black Mirror was fucking amazing once again. Better than last weeks even. It might prove to be one of the best satires of our age.

Watched this last night. While it's not my favourite Coen Brothers film (Although it's close), it's definitely their richest. It's such a biting satire of the world of film, while at the same time being a surreal ode to American weirdness and storytelling. Definitely worth it.

Don't do it what I did.

As in watch it alone. That shit is fucking depressing. I still can't understand the ending.

I think it was Charlie Brooker slagging himself. He rants and raves about pop culture and all its evils but in the end he depends on it. It's how CB feels in the face of the X-factor.

Recommend me something then!

I read a second-hand copy of Screenburn and it was good! Especially considering it was about TV back in the stone age (2004).

Need something funny I can entertain myself with for the festive period.

He has two other compilations of writings, Dawn of the Dumb and The Hell of It All, as well as a compendium of the best bits of his website, in a book called TV Go Home. All very funny.

Yes it was.

The opening 10 minutes where it just builds the picture of the world they live in. Brilliant.

However, did anyone else notice how similar the end was to Network?

Even more interestingly, Network is a film that Brooker has gone on record saying it's a great film he really enjoys.#
