  1. And the closing montage music for series 2.
  2. The opening is pretty horrible, I don't think anyone will deny that, but it does succeed in getting you to cheer for Neeson's character (if you like the film). Probably would have worked better if they'd completely cut the whole Holly Valance part. Just too much cheese.
  3. It's the kid from Witness I think.
  4. Looks slightly mad and old fashioned, but EPIC, so I'm still interested. I think a lot of people in this thread have been badly traumatised by Pearl Harbor, this type of film doesn't have to be shit.
  5. I remember dead again being quite a big hit at the time, but it doesn't seem to have held up well. I'd still rather see what Branagh does with Thor than yet another music video or advertising director.
  6. Enjoyable. Good cast and they pushed the boat out for the criminals. Slick and really derivative, but a lot of fun. I'd worry about them managing to be that clever for the length of a series though.
  7. It's going to be fun when the hype for the film really gets going. I can imagine Moore denouncing the film on the six o'clock news.
  8. Looking for cheap 2 disc special editions isn't a bad idea. The studios tend to do a good job on them. Heat, Blackhawk Down, Master And Commander and Troy off the top of my head.
  9. The dad is brilliant and it opened well, but it already looks like they have their formula mapped out.
  10. They could cut over an inch off the front and still fit the existing hard drive on the side.
  11. I'm pretty sure that he went to Eton at the same time as David Cameron. That will wipe out an Irish/Yorkshire accent.
  12. But Rez is super solid visuals on an old school game. Nights is a possible idea for a 3D game on a machine that couldn't really do 3D.
  13. I had it at the time and never understood the fuss.
  14. Colecovision. Just because there was a fair bit of coverage in magazines at the end of my schoolboy gaming phase and I couldn't afford one.
  15. I thought it was saying that his name, which had caused fear and awe before, was now just a label, meaningless and almost misplaced.
  16. That trailer is on the US PSN Store. Looks absolutely beautiful.
  17. There's a big piece by David Simon in today's Guardian. Good read. http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2008/sep/06/wire
  18. It seems to be called 1%, but it doesn't seem to be too close to what I remember being announced earlier in the year. I was sure Scott Glen was starring and I thought it had quite a starry cast. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1218981/
  19. I wrongly thought this was the HBO biker series. It was OK, but didn't really convince me and it seemed like it badly wanted to be The Sopranos. Good cast apart from the young lead guy, way too pretty.
  20. Yeah, slightly extreme example. I doubt that the crew on Heroes have the time to set up the lighting to perfection for every shot though.
  21. Purely speculating, because I don't really know too much about the subject, but if you look at films made on digital video cameras like Collateral or Miami Vice, they were both very grainy (may not be correct term) at the cinema, especially the dark scenes. This is much the same effect you'll get with a digital still camera in low light. Heroes is shot on digital video and lighting is one of the expensive things that will be done on the cheap for TV. It's one of the problems with HD that you'll notice flaws that you would never notice in SD. There is a definite flatness in Heroes that you wouldn't get with a film, like it's been shot to look particularly flashy.
  22. Life Of Brian was probably shot on 35mm film, by an experienced and highly paid film crew, with the intention of blowing it up onto a big screen. As long as they've kept a clean copy of it, it should look as good as a new film. Heroes is an expensive production, but it's done for TV.
