If you’re planning on picking this up in Brighton, it’s not there.

I tried in Brighton too and was told they didn't order any 2000AD's.
I tweeted about it and Dave's Comics said they were given the wrong code for it so the order didn't work.
They are getting some in on Tuesday.
I wont be in Brighton then but a fellow Southern Contingent member got me one. Thanks Dweezil :D

You're welcome buddy!!!!  ;)

It's getting a port of Ikaruga:


This and Bayonetta 3 may be worth buying the console for.

Great shooter, but Christ is it hard!
Still have my treasured (pun intended) Gamecube copy stashed away! :)

I enjoyed the prelude story in Minty/Scream, so very much looking forward to this!
Rebellionverse you say? Move over Marvel!  ;)

I concur with Steve!
I'd classify it as nigh on essential!  :thumbsup:

Not feeling it, myself. The whole thing just looks pointless. Still, nobody’s forcing (!) me to see it, so I doubt I’ll bother.

Have to say, I'm not really feeling it either-it all seems rather lifeless and by the numbers.
Still, I hope to be proved otherwise and Disney have brainwashed me into seeing every Star Wars movie until the end of time, so I'm sure I'll see it.

I'm shocked - shocked, I tell you! - to learn The Soul Sisters will not be part of the Judge Dredd Mega-Collection. Obviously the series is being held over for a 2000AD Ultimate Collection extension volume, appearing alongside Canon Fodder...  :lol:

Regardless of the artistic merits of Cannon Fodder, you can't dispute that it's a wholly (holy) successful play on words!!!  :lol:

I'm yet to see it, and will on blu ray I guess, but my brothers review was "the worst film I've seen at the cinema in the last ten years".

Didn't inspire me to be fair.

Jesus, I must go to the cinema far too much then, as I've seen far worse films in the last ten years!  :lol:

Can’t see anything wrong with the script.

It’s an excellent film. Definitely needs to be seen on a proper big screen, preferably an IMAX.

The film is pretty much two and a half hours of exposition, playing out like a video game with its quest narrative structure, which of course is deliberate, rendering it fairly predictable, but it was still a lot of fun and the best thing Spielberg's done in some time, although I enjoyed The Post too.

It felt very much like a Tron for today's generation and yes that "homage" to a certain late director's work was a significant highlight!

The 3D was surprisingly great too!

Lost Soul: documentary about the troubled history of the 1996 version of The Island of Dr Moreau, one of the worst films I've ever seen. Original director Richard Stanley's vision could have been brilliant, but circumstances dictated it wasn't to be. Fascinating if you have any interest in how great ideas end up unrealised or compromised.

Saw this doc at the London horror fest several years ago and subsequently picked it up on Blu-ray-it is indeed fascinating stuff, describing events that are equally hilarious and tragic- it's so disappointing that Stanley never got to see his vision brought to life.

I do have a soft spot for the finished film though, as it's like watching a car crash play out on screen!
Brando's performance is nothing short of bizarre and many of the cast appear pissed, stoned or both on screen!

It's pretty much the Apocalypse Now of horror/fantasy films, but not in a good way!

The plot and script were severely lacking, but if astonishing visuals alone sell a movie, it's for this one!

It's pretty much the visuals that drive the movie's plot at any rate.

Sorry, second attempt at the link because I couldn't edit.


Excellent article that are completely inline with my feelings on the film.  :thumbsup:

I've only just clicked that Neil Marshall has developed and directed this, so now quite a bit more interested.

He'd talked a bit on the Post Mortem With Mick Garris podcast a while back about it, but I'd completely forgotten it was happening, even while watching the trailers it didn't occur to me that he was involved! Should be good.

Neil Marshall you say?
Now I'm more interested!  :thumbsup:

Star Wars premiered on December 27th 1977 in the UK, so technically Gosnell was correct.

It didn't have I wide release until '78, which is when I caught it.   :thumbsup:

Annihilation was every bit as good as I'd hoped for and possibly even better than anticipated.

No spoilers, but it was visually sumptuous, with excellent performances all round.

Horrifyingly and equally beautiful, with elements of Arrival, The Thing, Alien, Under The Skin with some Cronenberg body horror thrown in for good measure, but combining all these elements into an original vision-no mean feat!

Another triumph from Alex Garlend, who is fast becoming one of the most interesting filmmakers to watch today.
