That is indeed correct and it ended the series quite nicely.

Weeeeelll... you say that and I almost agree, he isn't exactly Olivier as an actor but in Cop Land, he put on a really good performance! Surprised the hell out of me.

Not a huge fan of the Rambo films after First Blood mind you. Not seen the latest one.

Don't be insulting Marcus! He was brilliant. B5 was by far the best in my opinion. I never really saw the point of Deep Sleep... er Space 9 after watching B5. I prefered the story arc rather than the 1 shot episodes. To be fair though DS9 had some great moments, the whole Klingon thing was pretty go...

IIRC, the fog was a result of using rendered 3D for the outdoor sections rather than the pre-rendered RE look. It was simply to keep the frame rate up since the PSX couldn't render the 3D quickly enough with a large draw distance. It's better than seeing horrible pop on. mind you, I could be thinkin...

It may be that Tiscali use bandwidth shaping and throttle the ports and protocols used by XBL. You could open ports and NAT all day long with no luck if that was the case. I have heard really bad things about Tiscala from all sorts of people. The whole "don't support X-Box" thing could be just a fob...

Having never really embraced the consoles (with the odd exception) I never really got on the Japanese game boat. I grew up with home computers and kind of moved to a PC with the odd console in the background. I never really 'got' Japanese games, I remember thinking that FF7 was quite good but the tw...

Outrun eh? I remember it being the absoloute game to play back in the arcades, my mates loved it. Wasn't a fan myself, never been into driving games but it looked fantastic. It was so far ahead of anything else on the market at the time, certainly worth of the classic label. I just don't like it ver...

Both gods in my opinion.

Must be heart breaking (pun nod intended) for Tony now he can't use his hands. Can't imagine what it would be like not to be able to do what you love because of a disability.

I missed the whole Chuckle Brothers thing, must have been to old for it. I just find them deeply disturbing.

Thundercats was brilliant. Loved the way the Chetara had a more masculine voice then Liono. My motorbike is even a Thundercat! Hoooo!

Some of the scariest moments for me where in System Shock 2. I got so drawn into that game that every message I listened to added to the atmosphere, every time Xerxes spoke filled me full of dread and when I first encountered a Nanny, with her warped way of speaking about her "babies"... <shudder>. ...

I really don't get on with it, someone compared it to a "censored Emry'ed League of Gentlemen" and that sums it up for me.

I also saw Dragonslayer at the cinema. I thought the dragon looked great!
Watching it recently though, It wasn't the SFX showcase I had remembered it to be. Oh dear oh dear.

hawk the Slayer is still fantastic though. That glowing bulb on the end of his sword looks as realistic as it ever did.

As for the Bourne books, I confess to have only read one. Yes, I could follow the plot, I just thought the books where badly paced and interminally dull. But hey, thats just me. They where popular enough to make into films so I guess I am in the minority.

Young? First time I've been called that in a while. You sir, are a gent. You are however a 'wrong' gent. Krull was rubbish. Killing the beast with the power of love? Dear me! I saw it at the cinema as well, I don't think I ever recovered. Still, horses for courses. I thought Hawk the Slayer was a ci...
