Q: What are some memorable close-up face scenes?

VinklerThe only ones I can immediately find are the trio of Darth Maul, Qui-Gon, and Obi-Wan in the Phantom Menace duel scene. I seem to recall a similar close-up of Gandalf (probably multiple times) and those of other Lord of the Rings characters... maybe someone remembers when in particular. And I'm...

Q: Why does Jet's old watch show 15 hours?

SQBIn Session #10 of Cowboy Bebop, "Ganymede Elegy", we see Jet's old Ganymede watch. Its face is divided in 15 intervals, instead of the usual 12 hours. What are those 15 intervals supposed to measure? Ganymede is in tidal lock with Jupiter. It's showing its same side to Jupiter at all times....

@doppelgreener Nah, don't worry it was great :)
8:23 AM
Are you up for the second screening?
9:09 AM
@Mithrandir That's a lotta floof!
@Gallifreyan PHEW. That is a relief.
@Mithrandir Ugh.
@Gallifreyan and yeah I should be up for that in a while :)
but the one later tonight i won't be able to make
@Gallifreyan should I say it again?
You have no soul.
@Shokhet you here?

Q: Is the Lego Death Star in Spiderman Homecoming a real product?

SaarikoIs the Deathstar made of Lego, in Spiderman Homecoming real product? or was it created as props only?

11:40 AM
@Gallifreyan Ugh seconded!
12:22 PM
@Riker Rofl, that's awesome.
@Mithrandir There was already a daily floof for today :-/
@Randal'Thor was there? Didn't see it.
Guess the kid can be for tomorrow ;)
1:25 PM
@Gallifreyan I am now. What's up?
But not for long
1 hour later…
2:45 PM
@Mithrandir lol
@Randal'Thor thanks, I forgot to pin it
Ah, that explains why Mith didn't notice it.
yea apparently you pinned it 2 hours ago
> pinned by Rand al'Thor 2 hours ago
I'd thought Mith had unpinned it to pin his.
Floof wars! :-P
3:29 PM
Jodie Whittaker will be the first female Doctor Who.
Meet the Thirteenth Doctor #DoctorWho #Doctor13 https://t.co/wycdcneZ7o
@Randal'Thor It's the Doctor, not Doctor Who.
"First female Doctor"
@Gallifreyan Missy says otherwise.
So who the F is Jodie Whittaker and what happened to Kris Marshall?
Eek, too many pins.
3:33 PM
Their title is "the Doctor". The name of the show is Doctor Who. Come on, fix it.
Now you can write a new answer:
Q: Can the Doctor be female?

KnotHeatherIs there anything that says The Doctor must be a man? I would love to see The Doctor come back as a ginger girl, and my friend tells me he thinks The Doctor cannot change gender. Is this true? If so where does it say that?

Pfff, everyone knows that changing gender is possible for a Time Lord, but it's not common; in fact it's regarded as a fluke. If you have to ask that, you haven't been paying attention watching.
Meet the Thirteenth Doctor #DoctorWho #Doctor13 https://t.co/txHGz9tJEe
@Loong You have an answer there - just edit it ;-)
3:56 PM
Q: Can the Doctor be female?

KnotHeatherIs there anything that says The Doctor must be a man? I would love to see The Doctor come back as a ginger girl, and my friend tells me he thinks The Doctor cannot change gender. Is this true? If so where does it say that?

@Zaphod @Loong Fine, there you go.
5:00 PM
As long as they keep their hands off James Bond with stunts like that. ;-)
Comparing Doctor Who and 007 just doesn't work.
I don't like the idea of a female Doctor Who, but I'll give her a chance. And I will say - given that they're going down that road, they could have done much worse than Jodie Whittaker.
5:32 PM
Anyone else doing the sunday viewing of this month's film night? ...I should be able to make it, but there is a chance that something out of my control will interrupt.
I assume either @Gallifreyan or @doppelgreener is hosting it.
I do have my own copy (on VHS!) if that doesn't work out.
Vampires Have Swords.
That wasn't a 'what is that', that was 'you seriously have one of those dinosaurs?'. :P
5:40 PM
@Randal'Thor Hi! I could do that.
Oh cool, 1200 flags. ^_^
5:59 PM
@Mithrandir Sure. I don't think DVD was a thing when the Iron Giant came out.
@Shokhet It was, since 1995.
@Gallifreyan So it was. I don't know how common it was in '99 (when The Iron Giant came out), though.
That whippersnapper @Mithrandir probably thinks there were still dinosaurs in '99 :-P
Nah, they went extinct in the '80s :P
@doppelgreener If you do, can you let me know how to access it? Just in case I'm not the only one watching today, it'll probably make it easier to sync :p
I've never done a movie night with SFF, so I don't know how it works. (I saw scifi.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/7431/…;, but that might need updating if you're using rabb.it or watch2gether regularly now)
6:29 PM
It's GoT day! Finally!
@Gallifreyan I wasn't attempting to do so anyway.
6:44 PM
@Shokhet Last night I rented it via youtube (rental period hasn't ended yet) and broadcast it via rabb.it
@doppelgreener Okay. That's probably not necessary if I'm the only one watching. No one's spoken up yet, as far as I could tell...
7:01 PM
Don't look at me, I never do movie nights
@Mithrandir 👀
Further proof that Mith has no taste for fun.
The first one being the "floofs" he posts.
@Randal'Thor I gave that message an edit because calling the character Doctor Who was criminal
7:06 PM
It's simply a case of one thing: You have no soul, @Gallifreyan.
4 hours ago, by Rand al'Thor
@Gallifreyan Missy says otherwise.
@Randal'Thor Missy can sit on it and swivel
oh no XD
7:07 PM
@Randal'Thor The 0.9th rule of Doctor Who is you don't trust anyone.
And he hasn't called himself that for literally ever.
Too many oneboxes
nowadays it just shows up as "the doctor"
and calling The Doctor by the name of Doctor Who is a good way to give my friend who's an Old Whovian fan fits
7:09 PM
@doppelgreener Only since Eccleston.
@Randal'Thor well, that's nowadays :P
(I know nothing about Doctor Who...)
@Mithrandir Seconded
I can give you a couple of very nice fan-made 'trailers' for Doctor Who, which should give you a good idea of what it's like.
@Mithrandir primarily relevant fact here: the protagonist introduces himself as The Doctor. "Doctor Who?" someone usually responds. "Just The Doctor," he responds.
7:11 PM
I'll decline, thanks
I'll go take care of some nice paper books :P
Well, if no one else is watching The Iron Giant... I'll do something else. Probably catch up on some homework.
@Shokhet oh!!! alright!
7:38 PM
Pride and Prejudice (the one with Colin Firth) is set on Earth, which is in space. To the best of my knowledge, it has no scientific errors in it at all. Therefore, it is the most scientifically plausible space-based show (except that it's tied with a whole bunch of others). — Micah 27 mins ago
@Gallifreyan i can't argue with that
@doppelgreener I like that series very much.
You folk hating on The Doctor today disgust me. *I've* been pissed since they *named* the show. It should be Doctor Whom. #DoctorWho
8:15 PM
That's a floof.
9:00 PM
@Mithrandir neither do you. Nor I. No-one has a soul; souls do not exist.
@SQB I've got a couple of souls right here on my shoes.
souls are not particularly well-defined
Q: Is it significant that the eyes being reflective are proof that a Soul is inside in "The Host"?

MithrandirThe eyes being reflective are proof that a Soul is inside of the body in The Host, and is used as verification by both Souls and humans: "Look, look, look!" he says. He pulls a small cylinder from his hip pocket and twists the top. A beam of light shoots out the end. He turns the flashlight...

Q: RIP George A. Romero

ValorumGeorge A Romero, best known for his seminal Night of the Living Dead film series has died after a brief battle with lung cancer. His work has had an incalculable influence on modern movie-making and he will be sorely missed by his legion of fans.

11:53 PM
Q: Looking to find a science fiction film from the 80s or 90s, please and thanks

Ayari PorrasI saw this film on cinemax, it must have been 15 years ago, the film was much older of course. I have to say I was really high, all I remember is that it was a desert setting in a dystopian world, tuned cars (sort of mad max type) and the villain used a helmet with some wires to breathe, I don't ...
