  1. There’s loads of funny bits in Metal Arms. The inter level briefings are always good for a laugh and the ‘Delboy and Rodney’ salesmen are good too.
  2. I said Ghost Town by The Specials back on page 3 and no one’s had anything bad to say about it yet. So I’ll say it again: Ghost Town – The Specials
  3. My favourite episode is the one where a drug addict starts working at the propane store. He’s a total waster and decides that he wants to be called Hank Hill. When Hank objects to this guy stealing his name a social worker turns up and accuses Hank of infringing ‘Hanks’ civil rights. Nothing short of brilliant.
  4. More consistent than The Simpsons and as many laugh out loud moments per episode as Family Guy, classic. The episodes when they go to Japan are magic. “Why would my father, a confirmed bachelor, go undercover at a gay rodeo?”
  5. Have we had The Clash yet? I nominate London Calling.
  6. Wasn’t there a tune on the soundtrack that sounded exactly like that song ‘She’s not there’?
  7. Vagrant Story? How about Angry Avenues?
  8. Resident Evil?? What about Quiet Mountain??
  9. Ghost Town – The Specials If you don’t like this song we can never be friends. Or the theme music from Minder.
  10. So The Gunslinger series gives a link between all his other books?? Well, that’s my reading material for the next few weeks sorted. I don’t think anyone’s mentioned them yet, but everyone really should read The Bachman Books. Especially Rage.
  11. I loved it up to the last 15 minutes. When Sean Penns wife turns into Lady Macbeth it just lost it’s way.
  12. It’s a classic all right. My favourite Buffy/Angel episode since ‘Once more with feeling’. The opening scene ending with the child collapsed on the floor in front of the television was well disturbing. And when Angel leaps on Spike.
  13. I just never saw the appeal. No question he’s cool as fuck and can menace with the best of them but I never watched him and thought ‘wow, no other actor can do that.’ And I love The King of New York. Best gangster picture of the 90’s. No debate.
  14. Those Fiennes (sp??) brothers. I know in Schindlers List Ralph was meant to represent some kind of ‘banality of evil’, but he was just so ….. twee. Red Card. Hugh Grant. Obviously. Christopher Walken. OK, it’s not that he’s a bad actor, just totally limited. Low voice, piercing stare, menacing gait. It’s always the same. (That Fatboy Slim video doesn’t count)
  15. A couple of daft questions. ADR? Reel change? Genuine queries, no bearding intended. Great review BTW.
  16. Screw you Sega. We don’t want any news. </Amateur reverse Psychologist>
  17. Not even the presence of the lovely Natalie Casey can redeem it in my eyes. And I *biggest heart ever* Natalie Casey.
  18. No Metal Arms 2? Say it ain't so.
  19. Of the recent episodes the one where Phoebe makes those evil looking sculpture/paintings is my favourite. “Get that evil witch out of here.”
  20. The one where Eddie rambles on about a road trip him and Chandler took to Vegas, Quote from memory “Mr Lucky here wins $800.00, buys me these shoes.” With Chandler in the background looking totally shocked.
  21. It must be hard to get the balance right in trailers. Give away to much and people won’t come, but don’t explain the plot properly and your potential audience is unsure of what your selling. The worst trailer I’ve seen recently was for ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ which showed all the best bits from the film spoiler the oil tanker floating in down town New York, the Statue of Liberty covered in ice. End spoiler The best was for ‘Eternal sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ which got tone of the film just right and revealed enough of the plot to pique interest.
