I sell the risks of 'facebook' to businesses. (and obviously provide a solution) I refuse to see the movie.

I watched the Boogens last night

It starred Anne-Marie Martin, who was Dori in Sledge Hammer. Now there is a TV show.

Wow, I havent't seen her in ages! (I thought she left the industry)

And yes indeed, Sledge Hammer is quite the tv show! :D

She may well have done. The film was made in 1981. :)


It made me want to watch the 'People Under the Stairs'. Which is aces.

Just watched Inception. What a awesome, awesome movie. It's the best film in 15 years. Maybe longer.

Inception is awesome, period. Wouldn't say it was the best movie in a long, long time, but awesome--Yes. I am anxiously waiting for its DVD release. I haven't looked forward to a DVD movie in a long, long time. My brother and I saw it in the theater twice. I wanted to see it again (I have no life these days), but missed out. I'll have to search for a dollar theater around here for that, ha..

A Facebook movie? Yeah, I don't understand why it even deserves one. I can think of plenty of other big-name companies that are probably more deserving of one (that haven't been made), not that any really do... ;)

Good call. Especially on the alternate reality thing but I reckon Inception pipped it, in the plausible sci-fi tech department. And Inception doesn't have two shoddy sequels to soil it's memory. Or Mr Reeves thinking he's Jesus.

I wish they never did the "sequels". They actually were selling the movie as a trilogy from the start, but they lost their way somehow. But I still think The Matrix was better than Inception. It was definitely a close second and an awesome movie. If a rewrite had been done with lots of care with a philosophical glow to it and a slightly closer look into the tech without telling us exactly how it works the movie could def have rivaled The Matrix. This being said it would only be due to the tarnished memory of the first film from the slop[ that was 2&3.

Matrix was the best the first time you watched it. After that it was never the same.

Saw RED, this was very good

Saw Wild Targets, this was good...tame but good

Saw Tekken (as in a movie about the Namco game) this was as you'd expect from a video game to movie translation...very very average. Despite this I'm waiting to see a movie translation of King of Fighters which was released this year or last, I think direct to DVD. Should indicate the quality of this number I'm guessing.... :oops:

RED was indeed special.

I have yet to see the Tekken Movie, how average is average? on a scale of:

1 = Alone in the dark
10 = Resident Evil movies.

What would you give it?

Did I mention Hot Tub Time machine?

About a 3 or 4.

Probably in the same line as Dead or Alive, but without the ridulous programmable sunglasses plot and a heady nod to the multitude of post-apocalyptic movies.

There is some eye candy mind you, but not as much as DOA.
I think the dude who played Shang Tsung in the first Mortal Kombat movie plays Heihachi Mishima in Tekken. Also one of those Bros (When... will I....will I be famous) brothers is in it as well I think.

There was no Roger the Kangaroo either so I took points off for that.

Put points back on for Yoshimitsu.

Depends if you like the game and are willing to be forgiving. Games O.K. in my books but no Samurai Shodown. 8)

Saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows last night. It was good but there was a bit too much of the tent scenes. My goodness how Neville has grown. Oh and I was happy to see Peter Mullan in it because of his awesome voice but he looks a lot better with a mustache.

I know what you mean about the locket.

Oh it makes you ask like a jerk... well maybe you should shove it in Hermione's bag of holding! Anyway Lets hope they are staying true to the order of events in the book. They really should have made Order of the Phoenix into a two parter. You can tell it was really cut down. Not to mention it's the longest book in the series.

i never read the books so staying true to them doesnt bother me, i just dont want to be bored watching a movie for 1h45min and then it gets interesting, just to wait what? another full year to see this ending.. ugh

To be fair it's depressing. We have plenty of people like them in the uk. Where I'm from we had the balfours. A scottish family moved south to my home town. I never had much to do with them - computer geeks and criminal tribes move in seperate circles - that was until I spent a year as tax collector. Where, oddly and thankfully, they were really nice to me. Even the one that was up on murder charges. (And they paid their taxes, which was the massively unpopular Poll Tax. If they show UK riots on TV, it's usually the Poll Tax riots.. even normal people didn't pay, and burnt their bill outside the offices where I worked!) So...
