Welcome to the new and improved TLW!

 

Some of you may experience issues logging in and will get an 'incorrect password' error. Don't worry, you haven't typed it in wrong and your password hasn't been changed. You will need to reset it though in order to log in. Click the reset password link and you will receive an email with your new temporary password. Once logged in, you need to choose a new password (or restore to your old one) otherwise you will be locked out again.

 

If you have an out of date email address linked to your account, then you won't receive the new password. If that's the case then you'll need to email me (dave @liverpoolway.co.uk) or send me a tweet @theliverpoolway and I'll update your password manually. 

 

Any other problems or questions just let me know.

 

Thanks

Dave

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    If it was a debate about clause 4 then raising the fact that Hodge was a millionaire seems reasonable - was she not a "champagne socialist"? At the time of the debate (1995?), Corbyn was unlikely to be a millionaire, surely? He might be today but won't part of the reason for that be his frugal lifestyle?

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    I think it was the hypocrisy that she criticised people who benefited from tax avoidance schemes and then appeared to benefit from one herself, rather than the fact she was rich.

    I haven't been following the details of this thread but want to know whether your stance is that it is never right to enter into dialogue with terrorists? I'm not claiming that that was what happened, just curious as to where people stand on this issue. Secondly, when Corbyn condemns terrorist acts, do you believe he is lying?

    Sadly, Incredibles 2 isn't as good as the first film. The main villain is dull (and Syndrome was just so good) and to me it felt like a sequel, i.e. you know that certain characters will appear at some point and though their scenes are done well they still feel bolted on rather than intrinsic to the plot. Having said that, it's still a fun film and Jack-Jack v raccoon is awesome. 7/10 Ant Man and the Wasp - if you can switch off your understanding of science and ignore some horrible inconsistencies (I know it's a superhero film but they contradict their own rules from the first movie), then for the first 3/4 of the film it's a 7/10; it's good fun and the Wasp is great. The finale is really well paced, you understand why the villain behaves as he/she does, the action sequences are creative, and the end credit scene is well worth staying for. Overall 8/10.

    This seems far too sensible.

    Upcoming Films

    Hope this is true...Rogue Trooper movie! https://io9.gizmodo.com/it-sure-sounds-like-duncan-jones-is-making-a-rogue-troo-1827611822
  9. As mentioned: definitely Firefly; Fringe takes a while to get going but is worth it. Babylon 5 hasn't aged well in terms of CGI but I still rate it highly.
  10. Happy! (Netflix) - surreal, funny and very violent. It reminds me of the first Fargo TV series but is weirder. Recommended.

    The GF book thread

    For the sci-fi fans, Becky Chambers' "The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet" and "A Closed and Common Orbit" (Wayfarers series). Warning - these are not hard sci-fi, blow up the galaxy books; the crew social dynamics are fascinating and it's one of those books that creatively imagines alien social interaction. City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty - a fantasy novel with an Arabian setting. One of the best fantasy novels I have read in a while; Grey Sister was good but I couldn't put City of Brass down.

    This. Loved the film but can see why a non-fan wouldn't.
