Why? Do people really think they can improve on a classic? The 'twist' is hardly a giant leap. It can be easily implied in the original book and film with a bit of imagination.

Go and do something NEW you unimaginative barstewards and stop ruining originals. :veryangry

Yeah the recent Phileas Fogg remake with Dr Who was very right on..

I've not seen the new TV version and am willing to accept it's a load of shite, but the film itself was quite different to the book - the protagonist didn't even have a name in the latter.

The Caine film was considerably better than the book.

I don't doubt it, but it doesn't mean that original "works of art" are untouchable. Mario Puzo's Godfather novel is not very good in my o.

Being given a 7p off per litre for fuel at Morrison's when the nearest Morrison's petrol station is over 20 miles away.

The Day of the Triffids as a book was much better then the film. The TV version got close but nothing beats the book so far.

Annoying.

I feel the same about calls for a female James Bond. Do that and it just isnt James bond any more. Its just another thriller

Did you get shot in the forehead as you were writing this?

west country boy 18-02-2022 07:34 AM

No. Are you going to write another shit and unfunny post about Wordle?

The level of detail devoted to prolapsed vaginas was particularly unpleasant.

BBC breakfast storm coverage wtf visuals all about a mixture of American road signs and the government covid message box, cutting to outside broadcasts desperate for dramatic images with their reporters exactly where they are telling everyone not to go.

Any ars*holes out taking selfies on the seafront in the storm should be arrested for public order and endangering life. Not theirs - we can do without tossers like them - but the poor brave souls who will have to endanger theirs trying to rescue them when they are blown out to sea. Maybe an afternoon in the cells will re-focus what passes for a tiny mind.

So's mine, but I used the 7.50 off a 50 shop and then used the 7p/litre off fuel to fill up. :p

Total saving - over 10.00 :lux:
