  1. Bab 5 is ace, I think it the FX still hold up, given they were done on an Amiga or something...it's the at-times excrutiating acting that bothers me sometimes ("Get the Hell out of my galaxy!"), but the story is untouchable...
  2. Kicks off at about 9pm, fiddy bucks prize! Grr, argh!

    That used to give me the willies like nothing else on earth (sic) when I was a kid - nightmares, the works. I watched it again recently and pissed myself laughing. The original show really doesn't stand the test of time IMO. And apparently, rather than having the visitors real reason for coming to earth to eat people, they've come seeking religious devotion: massive BSG rip-off.

    I've read a bit about it (the remake), it sounds like it'll be massive Battlestar (remake) rip-off. It's got the sexy dame from Firefly in though...
  5. Photo here.... You've found the soldiers of fortune! Now you can hire... The A-Team! -- Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.
  6. Possibly the greatest game ever IMO. Played for 40 hours straight once, stopping only for toilet and food breaks....
  7. I'm in the midst of reclaiming my charges from Lloyds TSB using the template letters from that site. TSB charge around 25 per day for an unplanned overdraft. Bastards.
  8. It's the bomb - as were the X-Wing Vs TIE Fighter games...
  9. I fucking love this show, and movie; which has the best space battle I've seen in sci-fi for ages. It's criminal that it was cancelled. So disappointing that we'll probably never know what Whedon had planned for Sheperd Book's mysterious past... There are Chinese people in the series.
  10. Purchases over the weekend... Deep Space 9 seasons 1 & 2 Thundercats season 1 Good times
  11. Last night I watched Knowing, was OK, again fairly predictable towards the end; but better than I was expecting.
  12. The Day the Earth Stood Still (original Robert Wise-directed 50s version) Awesome, so much better than the shite re-make. Still stands up for a 50-odd year old movie. If you like like Sci-fi this should be essential viewing. 8/10 Angels and Demons Bog-standard, predictable Hollywood sequel fare that completely lacked any balls at all. Totally tip-toes around any criticism of the catholic church. Plus, wouldn't sky detonation of an anti-metter bomb shower the Vacitan in weird big-bang radiation? 4/10
  13. Genius, just genius. Anyone seen True Blood? (Can't be bothered looking back this thread). Any good? starts on Channel 4 soon. All I know is that Anna Paquin gets them oot...
  14. Yup, there's been talk of a Magneto movie for a while, and an X-Men: First Class movie (Cyclops, Jean Grey, Iceman, Angel, Beast), which will be impossible to fit in around the current X-movie continuity, but hey-ho...
  15. X-Men 3 is a weird one I think, I really disliked it when I first saw it, but it's kinda grown on me with repeated viewings (it aseems to be on Channel 4 every fortnight at the moment). Totally agree with your point about too many new characters - Wolverine Origins suffered even worse from the same problem - Angel in particular is absolutely pointless. The story is an amalgamation of Joss Whedon's 'cure' story from his run on the Astonishing X-Men comic and Chris Claremont's classic Pheonix Saga run. Inevitabley they've changed a lot for the movie (my main bug-bear is the fact that Jean gets killed by Cyclops in the book, not Wolvie); but movies are different from comics blah blah blah... I think Bret Ratner is a really workman-like, uninspiring director, the third movie would have been better with Bryan Singer at the helm. Roll on Kenneth Branagh's Thor movie...
  16. I went to see 500 Days of Summer last night, and I couldn't disagree more - although it had good perfomances from the lead actors, I found it a blue-print carbon-copy of 'quirky-indie' romance. It totally ripped off Wes Anderson and Amelie, there was nothing unique about it at all, it was just as formulaic as your bog standard rom-com, just a different formula. It could've done with a few explosions or something... I also watched Project A-Ko last night, which is one of the first wave of animes to be released in the UK by Manga Video in the 1990s. Set around the rivalry between super-powered school-girls A-Ko and B-Ko for the attention of C-Ko (who is the most annoying character in anything, ever - if Jar-Jar makes the Ewoks look like fucking Shaft, C-Ko makes Jar-Jar look like Mace Windu). A-Ko and B-ko have a scrap and wreck their school, then transexual aliens invade, under the impression that C-Ko is their long lost Princess. The Captain of their ship is a raging alcoholic. Violence and destruction ensues. Good wholesome family fun - violent, weird and funny. All things I like.
  17. Is it so rare to have proper character development in a movie that people don'y know what it is anymore?!
  18. Cheers folks, got Combifix running a fix now
  19. I think I've picked up a virus on my machine - it sometimes doesn't boot properly or at all, applications random launch themselves, and it sometimes shuts down by itself. My virus software won't launch, or when it does, won't let me start a scan. Any ideas? I think I'm going to remove and re-install Mcafee - is that a good idea? Help me IT friends, you're my only hope.
  20. Inevitably... With Marvel Entertainment Now Assimilated By Disney, Warner Bros. Has Created...DC Entertainment!! -- Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news. And a potential 'OMG!' Pixar, Marvel And Edgar Wright Joining Forces For ANT-MAN? Would You Settle For Two Out Of Three? -- Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.
  21. Man, what a shit-hole Aberdeen looked on that show. Grim as fuck. A quarter of a million for a box in Ferryhill, nae thanks...
  22. Paul has left (moved to London) and the rest of the band are now using the name The Hidden Masters. That's what Johnny Wolfe's mum told me anyway...
  23. X-Men 2 is probably my favourite comic-book movie, just for Wolvie's berzerker rage in the mansion. I think it's awesome, one of the few licensed comic book movies that really captures the spirit of the book (admittedly, there are a few more now that Marvel have brought their movies in-house), it's just awesome.
  24. One of my first Aberdeen gigs was Atom Flask at the East Neuk, I'm sure I have the demo I got that night somewhere too. Awesome
