    If you think about that movie there's a whole list of things you could pick to pieces but the three things that I had most problems with were.

    Apologies in advance for massive rant...

    didn't bother. after about 2 minutes of everyone awkwardly looking around a guy came in and said they had a powersurge and were going to rewind it a bit. I did get to finish the movie, but it just wasn't as engrossing as it should have been after that. The screen went off right at
    It's a whole different scene when it's just the audio lol.

    As for the movie itself, I feel it was mostly a director/writer problem. JJ abrams and Rian Johnson just had way too different opinions on where it should go.

    Yes. Ep 7 sets the scene perfectly for this movie, then Ep 8 literally drops the bundle. I was pretty disappointed with it.

    Yep you're spot on mate, especially with the comment about the director! Have read Disney / Lucasfilm are going to give him a complete new trilogy to fuck up I mean direct, can't believe it.

    c'mon, plot holes, ludicrous storylines, dead ends and crap characters are a Star Wars forte, cough, jar jar, cough.

    FWIW .. Mark Hamill agrees with you Lex, contains spoilers if you ain't seen the movie folks.

    At the risk of getting death threats, I honestly don't know how Star wars has held such a staunch following as it has for so long.

    There have been more shit movies than good ones in the series yet people keep shelling out billions to see it.

    The first one was ok. Empire was a masterpiece, Return Of the Jedi was good, the next three were Fucking terrible, the last one was ok, and the new one by accounts is crap.

    I appreciate that at the time the first three were revolutionary, but since then it's been like flogging a dead horse. They should have stopped after the original three.

    May not be about stuntpeople at all.
    I think this was Ghost Rider.

    I got the Blu-ray of that movie for free with my phat OG PS3.

    Still haven't watched it.

    Been on A John Carpentar journey this past week, The Thing, They Live, and Assault on Precinct 13 are all excellent, Big Trouble in Little China still brings a wide grin to my face, never fails to improve my mood.

    Watched Prince of Darkness on Sunday, I think this film is a bit misunderstood/underrated.

    Also, there was an anthology that was set up to be a TV series called Body Bags, only three episodes made though

    The Gas Station
    Hair
    Eyes

    The Gas Station has an amazing little social piece where two customers ask the woman about what she is studying. Judging a book by it's cover.

    Hair is hilarious. Stacey Keach ftw!

    Eyes, Mark Hamill can act, surprised.

    You can watch the entire film on youtube.

    Red Rock West (1993)

    Nic Cage plays a man in search of work, when one offer falls through he falls into another, in an altogether more perilous profession.
    Dennis Hopper also comes to town for work, too many cooks may spoil the broth.

    This is an underrated film for sure.





    Near Dark (1987)

    Bill Paxton
    Lance Henrikson
    The terror of the night!



    Both excellent films.
