  1. Fine people, I could do with recommendations for some dark electronica/synthy stuff in the vein of John Carpenter to help me get through working on an evening. I love his Lost Themes and Prince of Darkness soundtrack in particular. Nothing too intense with heavy beats, which I find in a lot of the recommendations that YouTube throws up, but pieces that are moody and atmospheric. Possibly also crossover stuff with hip-hop, like some of the tracks on Endtroducing, though that seems to be pretty rare from the searching I've done so far. Wendy Carlos' soundtrac
  2. Blast Corps. Something like a cross between the Hong Kong segment of Pacific Rim and that bit in 2012 where they're driving through LA with all the skyscrapers collapsing around them.
  3. The third book, assuming they do film it, is going to be a hard sell, but could be amazing if they get it right. Dust as a concept is already a little tricky to follow, so throw in the kinds of new stuff (which is pretty bonkers) you get in the third book and you risk a lot of people going WTF - that was more or less my wife's reaction when I reminded her of what happened.
  4. I'm pretty sure Barbarian uses a sample of an Arnie grunt from Red Sonja. It might even be the sound when you attempt a decapitation.
  5. I remember thinking it was lots of good fun when it was on TV late one night, and was a bit mystified at all the hate.
  6. If you want to stand any chance of making any kind of positive impact when boycotting a product or company, you need to tell people about it. Contact the company and let them know. Tell your friends and family about it. Post on social media. It's never been easier to raise awareness about this kind of stuff, just make sure you get your facts right first.
  7. Your body heat would be lost via radiation but only slowly.
  8. Have you seen Days of Heaven? I think it's even more amazing. Absolutely stunning.
  9. While listening to some of Ennio Morricone's greatest hits today, I've just stumbled across this brilliant Italian group, who do some incredible funky, jazzy giallo-style imaginary film soundtracks, with a real scuzzy sound.
  10. The Man With Two Brains is fantastic, and probably my favourite Steve Martin film. Carl Reiner's direction is brilliantly understated - nothing showy but he really allows the actors' performances to take centre stage so you end up with loads of great lines with perfect delivery. "Sounds like a subdural haematoma to me." "Into the mud, scum queen!" "What is that? "It's pronounced 'azeleas'."
  11. I've not seen Manhunter for a few years, and when I did it was on something like ITV4 with ads and a really crappy picture, but I still thought it looked amazing and it has that solid, hefty seriousness (for want of a better description) that Michael Mann does so well. Yes, it is very 80s, but in the best way possible with stunning framing, use of colour and epic synth on the soundtrack. Like this: And this: And this: Damn it, I'm gonna order the Blu Ray now.
  12. Looks good - what recipe did you use? I had a really nice takeaway one the other night, so fancy trying to make one at home. I also had sag daal for the first time, and that was gorgeous. Edit: just seen your other post with the recipe. I've generally gone right off meat-based curries, although I'm still fond of a good chicken shashlik, particularly if it comes with well-roasted onions and peppers.
  13. Tremors is 1990s. It's also a perfect homage to 1950s style B-movies, with great pacing, wit and chemistry between the leads. It's ace!
  14. That's not the purpose of blood moons, is it? I thought it was simply to resurrect enemies so you don't end up with a huge world with nothing to fight.
  15. But in Back to the Future, Marty plays hard to get with his mum...
