  1. i found this film to be a bit boring its trying so hard to be shocking it comes of as desperate the acting is decent but the overall films a mess
  2. Haven't seen anything about this film on here so i thought i would bring it up. It came out a couple of weeks ago here in the UK and is one of the best revenge films i have ever seen. While it follows the basic formula of every revenge film it's a lot more gritty than most and has some very realistic brutal violence. But what makes the film work is strong performances by unknown actors and a very professional final product from a first time director/writer with only a $80,000 budget. If you get the chance see to see this give it a try.
  3. i enjoyed this film but its no gran torino it should have been so much better.
  4. Heres the UK cover art, i prefer the german one but at least its better then the US cover.
  5. finally seen Excalibur and i thought it was great. it has some paceing issues but over all it was very entertainig. what makes the film is the great cast, i coudnt believe how young liam neeson is in this. i would love to see more fantasy films like this.
  6. Finally watched this tonight and i thought it was great. the reviews here in the UK have been very negative mostly just because of the christian content which doesnt go over so well over here. but the directing, the acting and the score was great. The locations looked bleak and barren filled with beliveable characters making it the best post-apotaclyptic film ive seen in a long time.
  7. carnt wait to see this only a month to wait in the UK now glad were getting some better artwork than the US release.
  8. I saw this a couple a weeks ago and while i liked the idea i found the film as a whole very uneven and it just didnt work as good as it should have done.
  9. theres a couple of short sample tracks and a review of the highlander the source score here highlander the source score review Living in the UK i manged to get Clint Mansell's score for moon on cd but i havent listened to it yet because no cinemas i can get to are showing the film and i want to watch it before i listen to the score.
  10. I love Robot Jox its one of those films you know is bad but is still really enjoyable and fun.
  11. I second that we need a DUNE a comic book and i would love to see your take and those characters.

    Its supposed to start showing the end of the month on FX not sure on the exact date.
  13. Phantom of the paradise I saw this musical horror comedy movie for the first time last week and coldnt believe i had never heard of it before. directed by brian de palma with music by paul williams and starring williamly finley and jessica harper this is one of those films that made no money or impact when it was originnaly released but is worth watching just because its so unique and suprisingly entertainig.
  14. finally picked up the score for highlander the source and while the film is terrible the score is fantastic and the first highlander score to rival michael kamens work on the original film i recommend you give it a try
  15. love 28 days later and the covers are awesome is there any chance of a flash back to Christopher Eccleston's chracter i would love to see you do a cover with him

    I hope it doesnt take aslong as True blood season 1 only started showing this month in the UK
  17. Saw it last night no where near as good as the first and its full off dumb shit but i did enjoy it and it was great hearing frank welker as soundwave again after all these years.
  18. The plan for the original ending got leaked on the internet so they changed it.
  19. Scotty mentions he tested his transporter on admiral archers beagle which might be a refrence to captain archer from star trek enterprise who had a pet beagle.
  20. I hated the idea of a Trek reboot but i have to admit i was wrong. I loved the film, its probably the best star trek movie except for the wrath of khan and the score was fantastic
  21. gonna wait for the CD myself, i always prefer them over downloads
  22. I saw this film with a bunch of friends and found the ones who loved the comic like myself enjoyed the film and the ones who hadnt read or didnt like the comic hated the film. Its definatley got a lot of flaws but overall i think its a good film but not as good as it should have been.
  23. Torchwood is worth a watch some of the supporting charaters are a bit annoying but show is still reall good
  24. I know im the only one who thinks this but i really want another Sylvester McCoy kind of doctor to add a bit of mystery to the role, he was the doctor i grew up with and i thought he was great along side his companion Ace
  25. Great news thanks for the update Tim
