@bullet worth paying for I'd say, not a great movie but defiantly better on the big screen than the small.

Mindless action, but fun nonetheless.

Ah Battle LA, hahaha, I was so close to making the Aliens on that show but my supervisor wouldnt release me from Marmaduke LOL, theres an article on it over at cgs, the Alien tank featured was textured by my friend and lead texture artist here at Windmill, Leigh Russell. Apparantly he use one texture over the whole model LOL.

Last Movie I saw was Rango, totally top stuff and hoping to view again this weekend!!

I saw "The air I breath" today - had it on DVD for about 2 years but never watched it - really good film, but hit home a little too much for me at the mo got me quite upset.

But a film with Kevin Bacon, Brendan Fraser, Andy Garcia, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Forest Whitaker had to be seen. And I loved the opening line

"I always wondered, when a butterfly leaves the safety of its cocoon, does it realize how beautiful it has become? Or does it still just see itself as a caterpillar?"

Well I finally opened the Xmas present...Predators...hhmmmmmmI love Predator and the concept but this movie was pretty lame. It had a few good action moments (Yakuza and Predator) and I actually liked the big Russian chap...but f*****g hell...humans are cast as so damn dumb!!! First off the chick finally reveals thay see in infrared...but do they do anything about it...nnnnnoooooooooo. Then Fishburne (or whatever his name is) has a helmet with cloak...but do they use it......nnnnnnnnnooooooooooooooooooo....and then the bloody lovey dovey crap at the end...well that just ruined it totally man....sigh.

Not a patch on the original and scary?? NOT...even my kids came in and watched it, the cat watched it...the goldfish watched it....waste of $40

cheers bullet

P.S I actually enjoyed the extras...especially the art dept work...man what a job...I would give my lefty for a job like that!

I liked predators - but then I am one of the few people who think predator 2 was better than the first - simply because it explored the predator as a character more than the dumb humans it was hunting. And the Alien skull moment was priceless.
First off the chick finally reveals thay see in infrared
Err yer brodey covers himself in mud towards the end.
Then Fishburne has a helmet with cloak...but do they use it.
Thats because Fishborne has it when he traps them in the room.

Saw Limitless last night - really enjoyed it - if only it was not so predictable in places.

Just saw The Warrior's Way. Ninja's, Cowboys and a Circus. Very odd movie got mixed reviews, but i thought it was great.

Very surreal.

Been having heaps of Movie Marathons at uni. Lots of B-Grade Cheese but its good fun! Best one so far was 'From Dusk Till Dawn', Rodrigez and Tarintino. Such a good film!
Saw Animal Kingdom and Alpha Dog last night. Those movies are intense!

I didnt see it in his hand tweety??? I will have to watch it again! Yeh they are dumb but...he does do the mud thing in the end...I will say the fire thing he did confusing the Predators infrared was cool. I thought #1 was the best for action/thrills.....#2 I didnt think was to flash..though like you the skull moment was awesome...he he he he

I thought #3 wasnt bad but I think they concentrated too much on the humans...there REALLY wasnt any depth to the Predator characters...only what Fishborne told them...in all could have been better
