@clay.glad you told us about battle l.a.,i was going to go see it.
as usual the best parts of the movie are in the trailer.
the original syfy version sucked donkey dick too.
i find it hard to find a decent film nowadays,theres so much crap
being produced...hmmm...how about we blame it all on arabs....

the scene that really got to me in that movie was when the dude laid down in front of the lawn mower....that was creepy as fuck.

Yeah that was good, but there is no shock factor in it whatsoever because as soon as you think you're gonna see a bit of blood and death and people dying all over the place - such as is one of the major premises of the film's plot - it cuts away, it was obviously made with a 15 certificate in mind although I'd hesitate to even put it at a 15.

I did watch Death Race last night which is a bloody silly but thoroughly enjoyable film.

Watching The Event at the moment, a series that puts similar high-concept Sci-Fi drama Flashforward in the shade.

Re: Movies/TV Thread pt.2

I recently got into Misfits in a biiig way.

It's a kind of British 'Heroes', except the main characters are a bunch of losers with ASBOs doing community service, and they have pretty crap Powers. It's well-written, brilliantly acted, intense, funny as fuck and ultimately, it's about why it's okay (important, even) as a young adult to fuck around, get drunk, party, do drugs and experiment with life. Feels like it's about my mates.

I'm about 1/2way through Season 2 on YouTube (no idea if you can get in on YouTube Shows outside the UK) and loving it.

Highly recommended, especially if you're in the target audience of roughly 15-30 years.

Yeah its actually really good.

Its pretty scary in some bits, as way as being delightfully absurd and tongue in cheek.

The only big let down for me was how the plots came together in really ad-hoc ways...just what they need to happen always happens, as if its been magically arranged "oh wow look, we just happened to meet this new person and HE HAS THE EXACT SPECIAL POWER THAT WE NEED TO GET US OUT OF THIS STICKY SITUATION, how convenient .

You cunt.

I have a feeling you spoiled the next episode for me (teasers suggested a new guy turns up).

I say: don't let a contrived plot get to you. A ripping yarn is a ripping yarn, no matter how convenient it might be.

Re: Movies/TV Thread pt.2

I feel like watching something tonight but unsure what. Something 'epic', in the genre sense of the word.
Any ideas?

EDIT: Maybe I'll watch Lawrence Of Arabia...
