The Wicker Man remake has an odd Silent Hill -esque vibe about it - does that mean the actual Wicker Man will be indoors? :wink: :lol: TCM: The Beginning does at least feature the inimitable R Lee Ermey, but beyond that can't tell the ratio of "making it decent" versus "simple cash-in"... gimmick i...

Wolverine (spinoff) is already in the works with Hugh Jackman already on board, negotiations still going on with his sideburns to ensure they don't envelop the entire screen :wink: But seriously, with a record-breaking US three-day take of over $120m, can anyone really expect to not be seeing X4 in...

Saw it on Thursday, and worked every showing we've had of it since. Thought it was pretty good, the special effects handled and integrated far better than Brian Singer could ever have dreamed of (something bolstered by the at times embarrassingly poor effects in the Superman Returns trailers. In all...

And (for the flashbacks) doing your indoor fires underground, in a town with coal underneath ;) Goes to show some don't live and learn... or die and learn :P (Mind you, it's not like witchhunters in general have been known for their intelligence - "if she floats and lives, she must die! If she sinks...

Just got back from Silent Hill and altho I haven't played the first game (which some have claimed is important to understanding) I got through it OK thanks to a little background check on the story and previous films involving Japanese mythology. I think the cultural difference there is contributing...

MI3's score is by Michael Giacchino (Incredibles, Alias, Lost) and I've read that it's fantastic. Can't wait for the score album. MI2 was scored by Zimmer and it's not very good, even by his standards. Better Zimmer action scores include Drop Zone and The Peacemaker; some add Teh Rock to the list. ...

OK, so M:i-III started here today, and as well as being in the screen over the staff room I also caught some chunks while on me rounds checking for phone usage, taking in ice cream, etc. First impressions: Pros: Importantly, the script is much improved over the previous two, something exascerbated b...

Might as well pop this here, but did any of y'all catch the big 3 trailer releases in the last coupla days? ££ Royale has some bizarre purposeless black and white, excellent action, great version of the theme but Daniel Craig is a Bourne, not a Bond... Pirates of the Caribbean looks like a hell of a...

Earlier someone mentioned mobiles in the cinema. I am hoping that one day ushers(like in olde days)would stay in the auditorium for easy access to rant to about some twonk playing with their mobile. :twisted: In some places we do :wink: I wish for the entire duration, cos we don't have staff showin...

And I've just remembered the horror comedy that may drag your enjoyment back in the genre... Freak Out! - straight to DVD here next month, but seems to fit with the kind of films you have said you've liked... guessing you'll be avoiding Stay Alive next month - to be wary, although Half Light isn't a...

Hang about a sec, from the comments about the lighting and comparison to solid pictures it sounds like a case of MPS - MultiPlex Syndrome (TM) where the assumption is made that how a presentation is viewed in a multiplex is how it is supposed to be viewed, ignoring crucial factors like a) insultingl...

Started here this week, from what I have seen isn't all that bad - certainly better than The Shaggy Dog as far as Easter Holidays programming goes! And to counter your Biker Grove , I give you Chums - genuinely funny short-format spoof TV... needless to say, if you don't like Ant and Dec it's really...
