The talk however is will it kill off Fox's launch of season 6 next week? Well no, most of the people that will download it and are in the states will watch it anyhow, plus the other people not in the states are just going to download them anyhow, go get them, and get into the season early.
The source of these episodes seems to be a leaked copy of the Season 6 Disk 1 disk getting out into the wild.
This was an internal teambuilding video. The video was meant to be to detail what the desktop support department at work do, we don't use them much (support our own stuff), so we did this instead! Click through for the video
This English production has jut shown up on my radar. Yes I may be a bit behind, but I thought this was going to be a kiddie flick.
Turns out I was wrong!
This is just a new twist on the whole 'Bond' thing, based on the StormBreaker books by Anthony Horowitz. Plus it's got some of my all time favorite actors in it. People like Ewan McGregor, Mickey Rourke, Bill Nighy, Sophie Okonedo, Alicia Silverstone, Damian Lewis, Stephen Fry, Andy Serkis and Robbie Coltrane don't just turn up all in one movie for no good reason now.
I realy do hope this is a cracker (partly as it's us Brit's doing what we do best, 'Bond' but in a new way), but more because we can then hope that this will quench the US thirst for these sorts of flicks and they will not make any more 'XXX' Continue reading StormBreaker→
I’ve noticed over on AVForums that some people are unsure as to what get’s installed, and more importantly how to remove it.
Well what it installs, the main part of Sky by Broadband is not the part you see, it is actually a P2P service (Kontiki), this is the meat and bones of the SBB application, as this actually does the downloading/uploading parts (just as a side note, the BBC trial uses this P2P application as well). Ports used by this application seem to be 80, 443 and 8080.
The less significant, but more visible part is the Flash based front end of the application that allows you to choose what to download or watch.
I have just watched ABC’s Invasion that†premiered (in the UK)†on channel 4 earlier. Now with the sad(ish) news that†Threshold is to be axed†this could be just the replacement I was looking for.
It’s sufficiently ‘creepy’ to keep the tension up, has EBE’s (Extraterrestrial Biological Entities) in it, and is decently acted by a competent (on the whole) line up.†Let’s hope that this does not get the boot.
William Fitchtner plays the ‘baddy’ sheriff fairly well and the rest of the crew most of who are new to me seem decently cast.
Let’s hope the script does not get too complacent (a la X-Files) and the plot does not stray too far from the mark and this could be a decent series.
I have watched the latest Lost and my name is Earl (post). Lost is getting better again, the last few episodes were a little weak; this weeks Earl is possibly the weakest of them so far, but it did have a lot to follow after the wedding episode.†
The new seriesí over in the UK at the moment are a little weak as well. Rome is truly rubbish, I know now why it went down so weak in the US. Also on at the moment is Threshold, not made my mind up yet on that, some of the acting is week; however it could have a decent story line to drive it. I am still watching season 2 of Stargate Atlantis and season 9 of SG-1 on Sky as well as I did not download them from the USA.†
It seems that Agent 47 (from The Hitman games) will be making an appearance on the big screen some time in 2007. Word has it that Skip Woods (Swordfish, Thursday) has signed up to write the screenplay.
That may be good, and even though Swordfish had it’s issues (I hate it how Hollywood have to dictate coding with flashing block’s of lego) it was not bad, and Thursday (his first flick) was Continue reading Agent 47 on the Big Screen→
And that’s just one of the lines from the incredibly funny Wallace & Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit.
I was planning on doing a full review of the movie, but that would just spoil it to be honest, so I will let you go and enjoy it without me ruining it for you.
I will however say the animation is probably the best Aardman have ever done, without making it look un Wallace & Gromit like. Some of the touches in it are fantastic; ever wanted to see Bullet Time done in plasticine? it’s brilliant!
Peter Sallis plays Wallace with all his usual vigour, however the voice acting this time out is star studded and no-one is a let down. Peter Kay as PC Mackintosh, Ralph Fiennes as the death hungry Victor Quartermaine and Helena Bonham Carter as ‘Totty’ are all great in it as well.
Like all Aardman movies you have to keep an eye on what’s happening around and behind the characters as well, as some of the best gags are not actually to do with the main story.
Nick Park’s homage to some of the classic horror/monster movies is excellent as well, King Kong possibly being my favourite.
I promised not to ruin it for you, and I was just starting t get into doing just that, so I will shut up.
But PLEASE do yourself a favour and find a child to take to see it, heck you don’t even need the excuse with a movie that’s full of comedy genius like this one! Go see it!
