30-year-old Soviet TV adaptation of The Lord of the Rings surfaces on YouTube

quote [ Originally broadcast on TV in 1991 (and then never aired again), the film was thought lost to time by those who had seen it. But as reported in The Guardian, Leningrad Television successor Channel 5 uploaded the film to its YouTube page with little fanfare, surprising fans who had given up on seeing the production again. It is believed to be the only adaptation of these books produced in the Soviet Union. ]

Everyone Is Beautiful and No One Is Horny - Blood Knife

quote [ For the most part, though, today?s cinema hunks are nevernudes. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is strictly PG-13, as one expects from a Disney product. And even in the DC universe, there?s very little of human sexuality. Capefans? demands for more ?mature? superhero movies always mean more graphic violence, not more sex. They panicked over Dr. Manhattan?s glowing blue penis in Watchmen, and they still haven?t forgiven Joel Schumacher for putting nipples on the batsuit. ]

Uh ?well, she's right?

Oh, a splendid compilation of visuals.

We Need to Talk About Judas

quote [ The new film, Judas and the Black Messiah, is worth seeing, talking about and analyzing with a variety of historical lenses. The historical lenses include the history of Black Cinema, revolutionary cinema, African American history and the history of political repression in the US in general. ]

GamesMaster: The Inside Story

quote [ Perhaps McAllister, Ffinch and the rest knew what they were doing. Or perhaps they were just doing what anyone else would do when tasked with making a television programme about something there had never been a television programme about before in a disused church for 50p an episode featuring a 70-year-old Pinochet apologist, every knob gag ever invented and Kriss Akabusi. ]

[restored after hiatus:] 90s UK gameshow nerding from 2013. Very ? well it checks most of the available mods.
