    I decided to check out Tweegs profile and he hasn't signed in since Feb last year. Oh well, I'm sure he'll return in a few months time. By the way, I've made two posts (again) and the other is on the previous page.

    Can you fathom this was broadcast 8AM on a saturday kids show? The last five seconds is priceless from the host. It's the same show Timmy Mallett appeared on I think. Are you a fan of Depeche music at all? Or is synth-pop not your cup of tea? They were in a experimental phase around this time I'd say. lol



    Do you remember one day few weeks ago when it was super windy? the day news reported a woman in wolverhampton was hit on the head by a projectile and died. I decided to upload this from outside my home on that day:
    I've been here 16 years and never seen any damage caused by the weather until now. It took the council just over a week to get round to shifting that lazy gits.

    The following day I wake and see this parked outside. If it had been there two days earlier I'd have thought; hmph, that's a unusual sight. I think it was on a sunday so driver managed to avoid the parking warden, but cctv can see the area. More importantly, who was driving that!?
    I suspect a T-800 was sent through time to prevent looming nuclear war. He stopped there to ask directions to westminster and sink a pint in the pub just outside this image:

    Ah yes the fatalities in MK ....Lui Kang's was the easist to do certainly. Do you remember reptile from MK2? He could briefly turn invisible, but the problem was neither player could see him and you didn't know what you were doing lol. I don't think I ever played killer instinct though. But I did see that MK film, with Christopher Lambert as Raiden, which was quite amusing. The sequel was terrible though! Never got into a fight while watching that film, but a punch up usually did begin if we were watching the Karate Kid or Wrestling for some reason lol.

    Have Valve gone out of business or something? Wonder why it's taking them so long to release another game. I haven't played DOTA 2, although as a real time strategy game it does seem intriguing. I never downloaded Steam myself, but I probably should. I just can't seem to find the time for much gaming these days though :down:.

    Oh yes I have seen the entire first season of Westworld and it was very good! Harris and Hopkins are brilliant in it! It's a slow burner though, and I advise you to avoid all spoilers! Thandie Newton is also very good in it! Have you seen the original Westworld film? I don't want to say anything more about it though, don't want to ruin anything :) .

    Ah so Tweeg has been gone for over a year. Hopefully nothing happened to him, I know he got that new job after losing his previous job but I can't see how that would stop him paying a visit to the forum. Was the other regular called Sonic? He/she never returned after the forum was updated and all the passwords etc changed.

    I don't mind synth-pop too much, but have never followed Depeche. Lol, I am just trying to work out why they have a shower curtain behind them :p . Is Timmy Mallet still alive? Do you remember Yellow Polka Dot bikini :whoawhoa: ?

    Oh yeah I remember that stormy windy weather alright! I could't sleep due to the noise of it :mad: . Thought my roof was going to come off!

    Speaking of Arnie, I've heard rumours he may have a cameo appearance in this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3829266/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    Some of these look painful! Why do people do these things?

    The guys in the Depeche video have a sheet of metal roofing attached to a rail for sound effects. I'm surprised you think it's a shower curtain :p. Check it again and you'll realise. They did this quite often when recording interesting sounds to insert in to their songs. Not sure if they're the only band who went around doing it though.
    I do believe Mallet is still alive. In the years following his stint on morning television he took his act to university audiences who used to watch his show. But that was 15 years ago, I'm not so sure about nowadays. I remember a couple of kids on my street singing the polka dot song back in 1990. If it wasn't for them I'd probably have no memory of it. I can also remember them going on about Jason & Kylie popularity in those days. Thank god that died off pretty quickly.

    I have indeed seen Westworld (1973) after hearing of it from Kermode few years back. The films poster looks great too. Back when they put some imagination in to them instead of soft porn covers. As with many films, it makes you wonder how accurate it is to the novel on which its based. There was a dull sequel Futureworld which simply pales in comparison... including the silly poster.

    I found this 80s DVD, amongst the modern plop, demanding my attention on a store shelf for just 50p not so long ago. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082348/
    So without any prior knowledge of it, good film and fairly violent/bloody for a fantasy-adventure also love the costumes and old special effects. The type of film I'd enjoy sitting through on a sunday afternoon as a kid. Just thought I'd bring it up seeing as there's a King Arthur film just come out. Also, I have another 80s DVD I picked up, but I'll save it for my next post given that nearly all I'm banging on about it is films today lmao


    How much is known of The Predator Jungle Vacation: Part IV so far? Will it be set in a jungle/rain forest once more? I don't want to see Olivia Munn she's vacuous and can't act... who the hell thought that's want Predator fans want to see. I'm also not thrilled about an Arnie returning cameo. We've seen it done before. Even if Arnold never comes aboard, I can assure you they will somehow re-use "You're one ugly mofo".
    What did you think of Predator 3 from few years ago? It was enjoyable overall, some good action sequences, but I didn't have any desire to watch again. It missed the suspense of the Predator stalking them before the kill. The sword fight was absurd too. Speaking of stalking before the kill, I watched Cujo (1983) for first time recently. It's not much good except the scene where they're trapped in the car alone and it keeps returning, but quite glad i saw it as adult rather than child because that St Bernard doggie isn't a pleasent one lol.
    Have you seen the new full trailer for Blade Runner 2049 yet? the striking physical set design isn't quite up to snuff of the 35 year old original. How that's even possible I dont know. It's a comparable complaint to how T-1000 in T2 still looks more detailed, fluid/animated than the Genysis version. People are complaining Goslin looks unmoved and uninterested every moment he's in. Yeah, they have a point. That said, he's only doing as he's instructed. Oh, reminds me. Alien Covenant is out, whats your view on it? looks rather silly overall.

    Arnold and Eastwoods one liners stand out among the crowd. The uploader missed Tony Montanas "I ain't gonna kill you.... Manola, shoot that piece'a shit." And Biehn in Aliens "Eat this!!".

    I haven't tried VR yet, but I've heard a few people who have say that this game (among others) gave them mild motion sickness. Odd given it's just steering left to right. Looks like the kind of game with short-lived gameplay, so it's just as well, Heh.
