Watched up to series 4 of Robot chicken
Its unfunny out weights the funny

Astro boy 2003, still a bloody great looking series with what you would call "Deep" storylines,
ROBOTS CANT HAVE TEARS!!

Turtles 2012
This seems to be a bit good, taking good things from the two series and adding actual weapon useage

I had a marathon session watching 1990s touring /BTCCand the Warner Brother's Batman series (the one where they're all buff and square chins and Mark Hamil does The Joker) all on VHS. Awesome stuff. I need to get them onto disk now though.

I watched the latest Rocky film - 'Rocky Balboa'. Pretty decent. Obviously it had the usual stuff(training montage and the actual boxing match). I think that why it was more successful, was because it had the human drama story to it like the first two films. Rocky and his son having relationship issues and so on. Plus, you have to love that music.

Watched Ghostbusters again last night. As good as ever :)

Have a few new 3D blurays to watch this week (Prometheus - hopefully the alternate start and end will improve the film, Avatar, Wrath of the Titans, Night of the Living Dead). The 3D version of I Robot should arrive today to.

Wow, you're lucky. Is the Soprano's the greatest telly show ever made? Possibly. The production values and ambition certainly raised the bar for TV. Enjoy the ride!

Re: Prometheus - what are the extra bits on the DVD/Blu Ray? I liked it when I saw it, even with the planet-sized plot holes. It was a film that asked big questions, just that the smaller details let it down.

Over the weekend I watched Cabin in the Woods for the first time, still don't know what I think of it.

Also watched Kill Bill: Vol. 1 for the first time in ages and also for the second time watched Taken.

still soldiering on with Continuum - every episode has a different style - very odd/sloppy. Need Fringe to come on so I can watch something better!

I watched that the other day, I thought the concept was quite interesting but I still wasn't sure what to make of it. Some really stupid stuff in it though, especially towards the end.

I saw Taken 2 earlier, it's like a light version of the first film. Actually found it quite boring at times. His daughter is still as annoying, ruining a car chase with 5 minutes of her screaming "I can't".

Just watched Cockneys Vs Zombies. A brilliant zomcom with a great cast and some very funny scenes (like the zimmerframe chase scene). Well recommended.

Aoi Senka
That anime about Sega vs Nintendo.

Main hero "Gear" (Soinc)s only attack is to run fast at some one, another attacks with blocks.

It was kinda funny
