Pulp Fiction. Randomly watching Tarantino movies, so deciding between Reservoir Dogs or True Romance next... Or maybe for a little Jarrelevance Kill Bill as it features Francis Dreyfus's daughter (who also had a relationship with Tarantino).


I watched Pulp Fiction too. Tried to find any resemblance with Teo&Tea as JMJ mentioned it, but I'm still trying :P


I never knew there was any resemblance to Teo & Tea - all I can think of is the Partners in Crime tracks. Great movie by the way - John Travolta's career highlight in my opinion- have loved it since it came out in the early 90's, each time I see it I try to rearrange each scene/story from the movie in my mind into the actual chronological order.

Watched on blu-ray. OK, not much of a story line, but awesome FX and battle scenes. Had me hooked from start to finish. Was a better film than I had expected.

It was ok. The story was just the same old sh**t. :)

Honestly, after H.G. Wells' The War Of The Worlds (the BOOK, not the subsequent movies/series/re-re-re-makes), any "alien invasion" flick is a retread of the same story. Some retreads are better than others though! :wink:

Last watched:
Restaurant Impossible with Chef Robert Irvine on Food Network. Sort of a "G-Rated" version of Kitchen Nightmares.

Well, the studio's should just stop p@ssing about and make a proper, authentic, period big budget adaptation of H.G.Wells The War of the Worlds.

Star Wars - Revenge of the Sith.

As much as I love the original 3 movies, especially The Empire Strikes Back, having now watched all of the Star Wars movies in the past couple of weeks, I perhaps now controversially think that Revenge of the Sith is the best of the six movies.

Ian McDiarmid who plays Palpatine/Darth Sidious is the real star of this movie though in my opinion. :)

Series premier of Terra Nova. The first two hours were enjoyable enough, it'll be interesting to see if the premise holds up week after week.

Damn, damn doubly damn. I can't believe I missed this. And I have Sky too. Hope the first ep is repeated here in the UK.

Watched the leaked DVD release of 'The Thing' prequel. Very good movie and a worthy predecessor to the 1982 John Carpenter version.


Flying Saucer under the ice


The alien entombed in the ice block


'things' in the pit


Start of split-face 'thing'
