Still nothing on http://www.smashthevolgs.net/

I hope they don't miss the chance. I remember The Simpsons used the domain www.whatbadgerseat.com to tie up with an episode. Fun animation on it too and informative - they don't eat cake!

Didn't really like it at all. I thought it was soulless and completely devoid of any wit and charm.

It started too slowly and never really upped the excitement quotient. The plane rescue was the highlight for me but even that was spoiled by the frantic jump cutting and (un)steady-cam shots.

The threat element seemed minimal - in the first we had nuclear bombs and then three super villians - what do we get here? A large crystal growing enterprise and some unexplored EMP stuff? Excitement she never wrote!

Routh was pretty good but Lois was too young, the cute kid a pain and Cyclops doing his usual pain in the arse routine. Speacey's Luthor had no real menace and why has he still got a soppy, plot hindering (his not the film's) woman in tow? Missed Ned Beattie's comic asides.

As for the plot it was way too thin and way too long. Too much soul searching and relationship issues - get on with some action, it's not Merchant Ivory you know.

Also beggared belief that Clark and Superman go missing for five years, turn up simultaniously and no one even mentions the fact!

A couple of decent sequences, but for the most part I found this really dull and uninspiring.

Interesting that at least 8 of the posters on this thread have fallen off the radar in the last 3 years. At that rate of erosion it'll be tumbleweed city in about 2 years 'round here. Excluding new people obviously.

I remember being in a New York night club (Whisky) and they had Riddick on a massive screen on a permanant loop with the sound off. Quite stylish wall paper. Unlike Glasgow's defunct Apollo Club (Appalling), formerly 'Media', which did the same thing, but with Austin Powers.

The last Vin Diesel film I saw was 'The Pacifier' and it was shite, amazingly.

I haven't watched it myself and it's probably as old as the hills but here's a link found on the movie database site for a free 79 minute Alan Moore documentary.

Shamefully the Scottish Sun put me on to this classic. One for the Cal Hab element, it's definitive proof that Hitler was Scottish.

At last I can claim a bit of culture - I saw the Ron Meuk exhibition in Edinburgh. It was good but a bit of a swizz as there were only 8 sculptures for a £6 entry fee. That said some were room sized and it was interesting - liked the 8 foot new born baby complete with umbilicle cord.

At the weekend I saw the David Hockney exhibit at the National (£9!) which was the wife's choice and Spamalot which was mine.  Worth seeing although they play fast and loose with the Grail - Lancelot gay? Lady of lake being Guinivere and marrying the king? at least they found it this time, it was under someone's seat.

Thought that one was amazing lightsurfer until the third go when I realised that all the cards changed meaning mine had gone, but only with all the rest.

Not work safe, or for the easily shocked or prudish people but this is a cracking show!

Nearly closed but  this is a pretty decent eBay offering - one in the eye for us who think our collections are our pensions!

Some upstairs joint in the Temple Bar. It was a bit tacky and has an enormous tray of half pulled pints of Guiness awaiting the next sucker. Abra-Kebabra is aces though.

I've never read a word of Harry Potter or watched more than a passing second of Friends. I have also never been arrested although I was detained over a snowballing incident once.

As for Murphyville I've been twice and the second time the rip-off element had reached epidemic proportions. I know we are stupid tourists but 7 Euros for a pint is taking the piss.

No naming names but a pretty decent contender for this crown in the new prog. (1477)

No details, but just to say the finger was a masterstoke!
