It was Die Hard, wasn't it?
It was so good I bought the 2 best of the two ronnies dvds from Play.
was easily the worst thing I've seen in a long, long time.
Literally can't remember one thing I watched over Christmas.
I love Wes Anderson movies anyway. I was pleasently surprised by just how much it had his stamp on it.
+ Jarvis Cocker is in it!
May have been post-new year, but it was the best by a long way.
But the best was probably that polar bear thing. And by "probably", I mean "easily".
i watched the thick of it every day over xmas tho, so i'm saying that.
And besides sport it was probably the only thing I watched all the way through.
I don't care that I'll get abuse either.
Poirot & Marple is about all I watched too. No abuse from me.
Doctor Who was good fun but not that amazing. The trailer though... WOW!
Also, Zen was a bit shite.
except Peep Show so it's that by proxy
I wanted to say proxy though. Alright?
And that's my defence. So there.
given that I'm pretty sure he's always whinging about how he hated the show and being famous for being in it on my DVD extra feature?
turned up in Emmerdale now as well.
Liked Peep Show, missed Shooting Stars, actually thought that the Royle Family special was better than it was for the past two years. I liked the Big Fat Quiz of the Year, too.
Worst: Come Fly With Me. I only saw ten minutes before I turned off in disgust.
All of the people I've asked about it talk in whispers and give no details; like Vietnam veterans with PTSD.
I've been wondering, at what point is someone going to say to Lucas and Walliams: "Hang on - you're just blacking up now. This isn't funny. To a lot of people, it's just offensive."
On top of that, it was just crap. Camp air steward? Check. Ditzy check-in girls? Check. Grimy photographers? Check. There were no jokes I could make out, just weak characters.
Essentially, it was a thirty minute riff on: "Airline food? What's the deal with that?"
The one person who I do know watched it is a friend who thought it was great; and judging by his taste, that must mean it was really, really, really really, really bad.
I'm not entirely sure what to say.
Then I enjoyed Indy IV loads more second time around. Cheers.
Lucas: Hey Steven, I think we should make another Indy movie
Spielberg: Nah, bollocks, I wanna make another movie about aliens.
It got a lot of things right. And then, a whole heap of others bafflingly wrong. These people created the character and yet totally seem to not understand him?
And not since, so that was what, 4 years ago?
I just remember thinking aliens just doesn't fit. Obviously there is spooky wierd stuff in the other movies, but aliens, really? At that point Indy had jumped the shark.
I still think I enjoyed it though
I'd forgotten that bit. I don't remember much of anything ever really.
But I thought the decision to advance the time line and continue the B-movie theme in a 50s setting was ace. The scenery is great in the opening 45.
Plus it made me laugh how many of my mates said 'It's just not realistic, aliens, is it?' I agree there was TOTALLY NO NEED to actually show one at the end, but it's no more unrealistic is it than a guy with his hand on fire, jumping out of a plane with a life raft or discovering various, supernatural religious artefacts?
The Ark of the Covenant? Oh yeah, that shit'll melt your face. God is well badass. Ooh, mystical Hindu stones? Ganeesh is going to go batshit! The Holy Grail now? Jesus rocks!
If you're going to acknowledge the various powers of Judaism, Hinduism, and Christianity, I don't see why you can't throw in some dimension-travelling aliens as well.
Now THAT would have been a movie...
I watched the Howard the Duck trailer on Youtube last night - who remembers that utter sack of shit then?!
forgot that was on, great film also :)
that rape crime fiction woman was lol
I knew it'd be good but I wasn't sure it would totally deliver.
I usually like the Eastenders annual festive gloom but it was devoid of any decent drama whatsoever (yeah, yeah, I know) and was probably the worst xmas one ever.
In other news, I watched John Shuttleworth's 'Southern Softies' and that was probably the best thing I saw all xmas on TV.
Other than WWE Raw. That was ace.
i didn't. my mum and gran did and said it was shit
I've heard mixed things. I've decided I only watch ITV now so I boycotted it.
But I watched Upstairs Downstairs. It was ‘ok for that sort of thing’. I had to watch it you see, as they filmed bits of it outside my office. Apparently outside my office is a good stand-in for London’s Trendy Shoreditch (In The 30s)
For what it’s worth: I really enjoyed Doctor Who
made me smile
and absolutely loved it. I never thought it was shit before, but for some reason this time i couldnt stop watching it and kept anticipating the next awesome moment in it.
was thising it as a xmas tele highlight :)
Was pretty good. Light-hearted comedy banter. His dad got the best lines.
HEY! the tardis!
Peep Show (mushroom party episode)
but I bet none of you losers saw it
