    Avatar? Agree with Jo, it’s ferngully in space. Rubbish film, only saved by the fact it’s one of the few (only?) mainstream big bucks films that seem to know how to use 3D and not just for “Whoah! Look out for these spears!” scenes.

    Think the set of T5 could be interesting with the personal history between Linda Hamilton and James Cameron…

     Okay, I was behind on my Hollywood gossip, but now that I have researched this… yup, this can be interesting!

    A fine show indeed. I never remember previews though, but it was nice to hear about some games I am interested in like South Park. Detroit sounds like it’s worth a look too.

    Good news about Linda Hamilton returning to the Terminator series.

    I saw and liked Chef – definitely a feel good film. Apparently an Indian remake of the film is in the works.

    I just picked up the first Kingsman movie on sale recently but I did not know it was a parody (now some trailer scenes I saw make more sense).

    Since the new Blade Runner is out, I suppose I should watch the original.

    Watched it for the first time two days ago… yeah, I don’t know if this will revoke my geek card – but I have problems with that movie.

    Great show as always, so cool stuff coming out of egx which is nice can’t wait to play some of those games.

    Yeah the steam has gone out of the avatar hype train about 8 years ago lol, and I really do not understand the point of this film coming out so long after the first film. James cameron seemed to have always had sequels in mind but why wait so long. I don’t understand and 3D has lost some of its pulling power, it’s around but not always necessary and people only go see things in 3D if they think the film might look good in 3D or it is the only showing that is convenient.

    I agree about the kingsmen and in retrospect the scene at the end was not needed and quite bad but I liked the film and that still fits with the parody of James bond as he always gets the girl at the end. All those films are stupid and very misogynistic I think. Have not seen the second one yet but might get around to watching eventually. 

    Still not watch dark tower I could not bring myself to watch it.

    As for blade runner, wow I if I started explaining my thoughts about that it might turn into a full blown essay and this post is already long. I liked it and it is really not a film for everyone, that goes for both blade runner films.

    Feel free to do that for the post on the most current episode. We have some OPINIONS on that show, and I would be interested to hear what others have to say.
