Eye For Film: Tataouine threatened by Isis
If all of that murdering civilians wasn't bad enough for you, then Isis have finally gone TOO FAR. "The line must be drawn here! this far, and no further", cry a million geeks, rising from their chairs in anger, then immediately sitting back down, panting heavily.

Our RoboCop Remake
Now /this/ is how you do a remake: get fifty independent filmmakers and groups to do one scene apiece, each in their own key, of course, until the whole place is just soggy with nostalgia. Stay tuned for the brilliant contemporary ballet rendition of scene 18. And lots of dick jokes.

Gangs of feral grammarians roam the embattled streets of Cambridge, marker pens at the ready! Their battlecry: If You Tolerate This, Then Your Commas Will Be Next! Kathy Salaman, director of the Cambridgeshire-based Good Grammar Company, said [...] "If I was walking along with a marker pen in my pocket and I saw a missing apostrophe, it would be difficult to resist the temptation to fill it in."

Salmond accused of ‘false statements’ about detention of You’ve been Trumped film-maker Anthony Baxter
Stellar muckraking from the Hootsman once again. Be sure to read the final paragraph. Remember alweays that it's been revealed that the junior treasury minister Michael Portillo carries a sawn-off shotgun to constituency meetings, corners children in parks and chews their cheeks, and has frequent sexual intercourse with stray animals, claiming "As long as it's got a backbone, I'll do it". That story we reported last week and have since discovered it to be untrue.
