Kirsten Stewart's poem. Samuel Laurencefishburne Jackson, and now this camera falling form a plane into a pig sty... Videogum, I need you to tell me what to make of all this stuff!

Joss Whedon tweeted: "See, this is the scene in the movie where you help me out." ----------------------- If only. Immortal. which pretty much sums it up. A lot of videos were posted too, but this is my favourite, just because he was such a team player...

Very much the Bound 2 of its day. This guy is Shakespeare. Who'll be his Medici's?

And District 12 is so small! All the power for that capital comes from there? And at the end it gets destroyed so they don't even need it? And everything comes from America? And Katniss's appearance on the Hunger Games stirred a revolution (whatever that would involve, the rich seem to massively outnumber the poor and it's not like there's a Death Star that can blow up) so to solve this, they decide to put her in the Hunger Games again? ARGH, this film made me so ANGRY!

"Introducing Rosie Perez" I'll say! The credit sequence that taught me to dance.

When I tried to explain the Monty Hall problem (it's the one about goats and a car, yep?) to my friend Jess, she refused to change doors. I became more and more frustrated as I tried again and again to explain it until eventually she said "But you haven't asked me how I feel about goats." Jess rules.

Thank you one last time, Gabe. Be well. And thank you again, monsters. I was directed to videogum by Graham Linehan's blog back in 2009, fell in love with the place instantly, and basically moved in ( Even though I sometimes feel a little too old for the community, and a little too from London, you've all been my church, a place of polite assembly, and celebration, plus yuks and laffs. This place is the best. I'm excited. Who's excited? Here's the happiest thing I know:

Just to say, I don't often pipe up here, but thanks Gabe. You created a fantastic place to come to, I can't wait to see what you do next. Big hugs. And thank you monsters, you kept me smiling when Gabe was hating it.

I just looked that review up and it led me to this. I love a happy ending. Thank you.

Do you think he painted those circles himself because he wanted to join in with the wallpaper?

Freddy's Popeye versus Dodd's Wimpey. "I yam what I yam" versus "I will gladly pay you Tuesday". Self-knowledge versus speculation.

Steve you are properly correct. No trolling. (Is there a worse hiding place for a bomb than one of three unguarded trucks driving unguarded around a trafficless city?) History will prove us right, young Winwood.

I hated it, because, yeah. Javier won. And also, why not root for him. Bond's supposed to kill who he wants and sleep with who he wants and he not get on with his boss but that's fine because he saves the world. Here, James Bond didn't save anyone - I mean ANYONE. I mean, he specifically waited for the bad guys to carry out their hits before having a fight. And the fights were mainly terrible... "These three men will not let you leave here alive" How? They're not armed? What was the plan, surround him to death before he had a chance to jump into the lizard pit. And what was Bardem's plan? Get captured so why? And Eve was rubbish as well, and what was her job, trans-world pampering? And teh Bond car so you couldn't be traced but then they know where you are. And all the stuff about Britishness and the old fashioned way (when what made Bond great was the total rejection of that idea of Britishness, the technology, the internationalism) and this is 2012! So M's whole "there is a new enemy in the shadows" speech was a bit sardonic Wonka meme. It was pretty though.
