  1. Love the idea of a gothic western (still gutted Deadwood was canceled in it's prime), but seriously, that's one hell of a title to try market (remember how few people went to see The Shawshank Redemption because of the title, despite the fact that it's one of the best movies ever! Besides, is it just me or does the title sound more like the name of a 1970's kung fu movie?

    Still no sign of the UK DVD release dates
  3. Two films I display proudly in my DVD collection. Not had a chance to see Red Belt yet though :-(
  4. Brillaint! "A former NYC cabbie and test driver for Lamborghini" .... Yeah, because Italian super car manufacturers always scout out NYC cabbies, rather than professional race drivers. Michael Schumacher? Lewis Hamilton? F*ck that, Lambroghini go for Travis Bickle every time! After all, when you want to test a supercar, you obviously go for the driver who spends most of his working day stuck in traffic

    Is it? What channel?
  6. Only getting 'alright' reviews, 3 out of 5 from Empire

    Anyone happen to know who is going to air this in the UK by any chance? The DVD release is going to be a long way away :-(
  8. Good news from the BBC http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/8059393.stm
  9. Wasn't there already a movie called The Chase with Charlie Sheen & Buffy Mk1 about 15 years ago? And what happened to South America? Is this actually even the same film or has JMC moved onto a different project entirely?

    I'm loving the vibe, seems to be in the same vein as Weeds (one of my favourite shows on TV). Awesome :-)
  11. Not sure why most of the posts here were removed, but it looks like this film is getting made now. Pretty cool for the poster/writer/director. Wish him luck and will try see when it comes out: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0886491/
  12. Link above is broken, but can find it ... for now
  13. It's listed as coming out on IMDB too. Nearly fell of my chair in disbelief. I figure that means we should see it on this side of the pond in 6 months or so... groan
  14. Well, as no one would do it for me, I had to master the art of Google myself. UK release date is 24 April 2009. Wait, what? WTF? Why the heck do we have to wait an extra 3 months for the film to be released in the UK, what is this, the 1980's all over again? Do they only have 5 prints or something! .... and why the feck do they have to release it the weekend I'm running the London Marathon, the only weekend I've got something planned all year! Yee gods, Murphy's law or what!
  15. At the risk of sounding like an old man, I have to say this movie has a great soundtrack. Picked it up cheap on Amazon when I couldn't find the DVD, and it really gave me a taste for Jazz. I'm sure I'll buy some more Jazz some day (when I'm older :-P) but this was a great intro to it.
  16. Man, I'm giddy with excitement about seeing this movie, it just looks like such fun (something missing from the cinema's around Oscar time). Anyone know the UK release date?
  17. or alternatively, just watch 'Thursday' ... if you can find a copy
  18. I got my first BMX and learned to cycle/defy gravity by being shoved down a hill by my evil older brother.... good times.
  19. What was really strange that is that it was Sunshine was actually quite successful in the United Kingdom, where it was released months before in the States. So they knew that there was an audience (even if they were divided about the last section of the film..... but then again they had the same issue with 28 Days later!) and they still failed to market it. So frustrating to see such a creative movie getting mistreated (and don't even start me on the Soundtrack/Score fiasco). Can't wait to see it in Blu Ray, this is pretty high on my shopping list.
  20. Yeah, Empire is a great magazine, but it sucks for the State Side readers that usually by the time something is released in Europe (and Empire can print their reviews) most movies have already been and gone in the U.S. Empire's original 'The Mist' review can be found here if anyone is interested.
  21. Some kudos for The Mist from Empire Magazine (the best movie magazine in the United Kingdom and Ireland). They've picked The Mist as one of the 50 films you must see from 2008 (as it was released over here in 2008 for some reason that has always escaped me) in their review of the year. "The Mist Frank Darabont's third Stephen King feature is debatedly the year's best thriller - B movie chills with A-list craft and intelligence" Defining moment: The most powerful ending of the year bar none"
  22. So, how's that getting back to work coming along? Any update from McTiernan yet?
  23. Awww shucks, you guy'll make me blush if you're not careful Cheers Parker and Tim, I think you guys are cool too :-)
  24. Looks like it's getting released in the UK in January. Potentially a great start to the cinematic year then :-)
  25. This is so going to be the first Blu Ray disk I buy (curses on the death of HD DVD tho, it was so the better format). Can't wait, have my Blu Ray drive in the post right now :-) So lucky to be heading back to India Tom, man I love that place. A real shame ot hear about what is going on out there at the moment, but the real sad thing is that this kind of thing (well, not on such a large scale) happens there all the time now, but it's never reported in the West... until some tourists starrt catching bullets that is. The day I arrived in India there was a series of bomb blasts in Delhi, so n
