Still Game

Post by Notts Pete » Fri Jun 06, 2008 11:50 pm

Got to congratulate dangerous_jamie and trixybella on their excellent taste in comedy. I knew someone else must love this show - certainly can't convince any of my friends to get into it. "It's a bittersweet sitcom about a bunch of Glasgow pensioners" I tell them, and they just change the subject !!

Oh well, I suppose it can just be our little comedy secret, kinda like Steve Martin was when he'd only made The Jerk & Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid.

If you're after even more from Craiglang, have a scan on e-bay - last year I picked up a brilliant dvd of a live tour they did back in 1999. It's just Jack, Victor & Winston talking about the good old days but it had me howling all the way through (and even brought a lump to my throat at one point). Well worth checking out.
I bet you think you know all about vampires ... believe me, you know f@*& all.

melvin you want to search for and download the k-lite codec pack just type it into google .

with it there's a program called direct vob. quite often the subtitles and even different audio tracks hardcoded into the files.. with direct vob you can access them :)

hope this helps. but either way if you like the films you should buy the dvds

:)

cheers for that, i'll look in to it. I normally just buy dvd's i want yeah, but due to the purchase of a ps3, a wii and a new tattoo money's a bit tight so that's why I tried downloading em. Never knew that could be so frustrating though haha

RE: Soulmining

The Last Kiss is really good :-) If you liked Garden State (one of my fav films) then you'll enjoy this one!

Yes, I saw The Last Kiss at the cinema so am looking forward to watching it again - some good tunes on the soundtrack too from what I remember. Ditto Garden State - I love that scene on the sofa when Zero 7's In The Waiting Line plays... :)

Boarding Gate

Post by Notts Pete » Sun Jun 08, 2008 11:13 pm

Re: Soulmining

Blimey, that's quite a mixed bag to keep you going for a week or so.

Let us know how you get on with Boarding Gate would you? I just rented that today and me and a friend gave up about 40 mins. into it.
I honestly can't remember the last time we actually switched a movie off but this one was a REAL STRUGGLE. I really like Asia but her performance here is not going to win over any of her critics. Even after a topless scene then a bit of kinky sado-masochistic stuff with a sleepwalking Michael Madsen we just couldn't be arsed to see where it was going & decided to give in and watch the last half hour of the Germany-Poland game - and neither of us really even like footie !!
Come back Fiva Across the Eyes, all is forgiven.

You've got a couple of corkers with Babel & Perfume though.
I bet you think you know all about vampires ... believe me, you know f@*& all.

My very very lovely friend who's out in the US at the moment has just bought the equal greatest (to my Hardy Show dvds) present ever!!

Wednesday 13's Weirdo A Go Go!!! My favourite rocker of the zombie stylee doing 50's B movie clips, skits and crazy PeeWee's Playhouse style stuff!

You can't buy it in this country despite it being out for 6 months now (I've waitied so long for this!) so I will be extremely happy come Saturday when I get to sit and FINALLY watch it!!! :D
Have you heard of my friends capital letter and comma?

No? Well perhaps you should try them sometime... correct usage will do wonders for your social life.
