United vs Hull

Tuander-ManBen (@Benglorious)

Hull is a 1983 British-American science fantasy film directed by Peter Yates and starring Ken Marshall, Lysette Anthony, David Battley and Freddie Jones. It was produced by Ron Silverman and released by Columbia Pictures.Hull’s distinctive features include an unlikely union between the science fiction and fantasy genres, a robust score by James Horner, early screen roles for actors Liam Neeson and Robbie Coltrane, and its surrealistic set design within the castle presented as the “Black Fortress”. Although it was a commercial failure when released, it has since achieved the status of a cult film.

An evil overlord from space, called The Beast, invades the world of Hull due to a prophecy that a marriage that unites that world will have a son who will rule the galaxy. When two great kingdoms are going to be joined by a marriage (necessitated by this invasion), The Beast’s army, the Slayers, kidnaps Princess Lyssa just before her wedding is completed, and Prince Colwyn goes on a quest to save her, aided by a wise old man, a gang of escaped prisoners and thieves, and an ancient sentient weapon.
“The ancient prophecy:
that a girl of ancient name shall become queen,
she shall choose a king,
and that together they shall rule our world,
and that their son shall rule the galaxy.”

Prediction: Brett to be so wrong he’s convicted of high treason, which, luckily, is still punishable by death. Welbeck with his customary two, Rojo penalised, no sign of Falcao. 0-0 United.

Let me say something that might shock you: I ruddy love Hull. Amidst a field of giants – Rod, Ship’s, by very loose association the savoury hoop – the City of Hull* really stands out. Its postcode is HU and its time zone is Greenwich Mean Time. Other valuable websites are www.hullcc.gov.uk and it is the UK’s 2017 City of Culture. Assuming the last one is for the purposes of a joke we don’t get.

*ranked 58th

The film review feature is again sadly absent because I’ve been too ruddy worried to watch films. God Bless.

 

Prediction: Brett to be bang wrong. 3-0 United. The scorers? You decide! For Ibra, turn to page 23, for Mkhitaryan, turn to page 48. For Wayne Rooney, colour in the circle on page 2. Try and stay in the lines.

What can we say about Hull that hasn’t already been said. I’ll tell you what we can say about Hull that hasn’t already been said, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! BECAUSE WE PLAY THEM EVERY SODDING DAY OF THE RUDDY YEAR FFS.

Prediction: Tom and Benno to say something we’ve said before because of the thing I said about there being absolutely nothing to say about them that hasn’t been said before, on account of us playing them every sodding day of the ruddy etc 0-0 United.
