I don't mind Booth, but her intros in this were really jarring. Her delivery was awful and looking off-camera to read her lines was incredibly irritating. I'm not saying she shouldn't be on there, but at least learn the lines, look to camera, and tone down the delivery!

After watching it for the umpteen time, i'd say the a certain A Bryce wrote "her" bits, as the tone of them reminds me of his writing style, anyone agree??

When you saw how Alan Jones, Calum, Kim Newman etc talked about the films, with their knowledge and obvious love for the subject, it stood out like a very sore thumb.

I love the set though. 14 hours of nostalgic heaven

I realize he has to watch new movies daily, unlike me, who watches the same old movies time and time again.

I love Newman's presentations, but it was indeed striking that he couldn't remember this (pretty impressive) scene of A Bay of Blood.

Greetings!

I mentioned the menu to her on twitter. She said it was Jake West's idea. A big thank you to that man.

You should have mentioned this to Rick Melton.
