I havn't got a clue. I picked it about 8years ago on ebay. Its very odd and pervy but has plenty of laughs to be had. A quick Wiki search states there are only 12 episodes and a 14 volume manga so i'd imagine there is more to the story.
Cheers dude. At least I know that I won't be missing out on more episodes once I finish it :)

I caught up with more of True Blood(Season 6). Uneven season so far - I have only about 2 more episodes to go.

Great. That one hasn't been broadcast yet...

I look forward to not being shocked by it when it happens.

My only gripe is that you don't get to see some of the Jaegers in action for more than a couple of minutes. Bloody great popcorn film though, apparently they've scripted a sequel but are waiting for it to be greenlit.
Yeah, interested to see how theyre going to do a sequel, but im ready to switch my brain off for another 90 minutes of robot on alien action............that didnt sound quite so rude in my head!

Just watched "The Wolverine"............a decent movie on its own, but think it should have just been a stand alone movie, not shoehorned in to the other wolverine/ x men movies.

One of the (low budget) best films I have seen with aliens and ninjas in

Yeah, I watched Pacific Rim last night. It's pretty good. Okay, I suppose some of the storyline does feel a bit of a cliché - but there does seem to be a degree of characterisation. The whole massive robots hitting alien creatures was handled very well. I'm glad that I didn't view it in 3D - as I think the fact that a lot of the film is set either at night or at sea would have made viewing the action very difficult. The soundtrack was really loud in places! As for the supposed sequel, well it might be interesting to it - I don't know where the story would go from here.

Awesome film. The only bit I didn't like was that annoying dumbass ninja. The fights were really cool though and it was nice to see old-school rubber monster suits again instead of CGI :)

This is the end. Decent film and quite clever but as clever as it thinks it is with some jokes that really don't work.

Was about to mention this. I laughed quite hard throughout most if it.

Only watched it on a friends recommendation as it's not my kinda comedy, however, glad I did.

I thought it was hilarious. And one of those films where you're better off not knowing anything about it going in.

I've got access to no less than EIGHT different versions of A Christmas Carol, and intend on watching them all this month. Started tonight with the Kelsey Grammer musical version, it's sort of alright, in a good way.

Bought Freddy Vs Jason on blu ray earlier, so will give that a good watching later, along with Oblivion. I just hope that FvJ is better than the crap that was A Nightmare On Elm Street PtII (so camp, Peter Butterworth was charging a pound!).
