Perhaps the best scene in this monstrosity is when the Predator readies himself to tackle whatever crisis and we see a glimpse of the Predator homeworld.

Other than that - this is an Alien film with the cast of Melrose Place. Absolutely dire.

The last night I was out on Paddy's Day was a pub called The Queen's Cross (the irony is not lost on me) in Vancouver, 2007. As you can see, the Canadian's tend to go a tad green too. I have a vague memory of taking the last 3 photos - Mrs. Goatilocks was not impressed ...

More robots. Dandontdare should be happy.

Hugh Jackman plays an ex-fighter who becomes a promoter when human boxing is outlawed for being too violent. The new gladiators are 2,000-pound robots with human qualities. His access to sub-standard robot parts hampers his hopes for glory in Robot Boxing, until he discovers a discarded robot that always seems to win.


Can't wait to see where this thread leads ...

America’s public school curriculum may be in for a Texas-sized overhaul, if the Lone Star state’s influential recommendations for changes to social studies, economics and history textbooks are fully ratified later this spring. Last Friday, in a 10-to-5 vote split right down party lines, the Texas State Board of Education approved some controversial right-leaning alterations to what most students in the state—and by extension, in much of the rest of the country—will be studying as received historical and social-scientific wisdom. After a public comment period, the board will vote on final recommendations in May.


The 'revised standards' they wish to introduce are mind-boggling.

Hopefully Rebellion's US push will be successful and, dare I say it, gain renewed interest in persuing rights for movies.

In my dreams I'm standing in a cinema queue waiting to see Nemesis the Warlock 2: Torquemada's Revenge ...

It could happen, couldn't it ..?

Speaking of Japan, my wife and I recently watched the full Shogun series with Richard Chamberlin. Really enjoyed it, even if some of the love scenes read like Attack of the Clones.

""Cloverfield" scribe Drew Goddard has been hired to adapt Daniel H. Wilson's upcoming novel "Robopocalypse" about the human race's attempt to survive an apocalyptic robot uprising. The project is apparently a serious contender to be Steven Spielberg's next directorial effort..."


"Nina Jacobson is developing the sci-fi thriller "The Dominion", which centers on a human who is chosen to command the army's first-ever platoon of robotic soldiers .."


Can we have a complete Dan Dare trade, Bellardinelli/Gibbons or are the rights so tightly tied up it's an impossibility?

I second this regarding a Dan Dare trade; perhaps this will be a future publication with the news of a proposed DD movie ..?

And thank the guys at Rebellion for continuing to produce high-quality trades.

A brilliant little gem of a story and an object lesson to any other Dredd writer on how you expose those chinks in Dredd's emotional armour. You keep your weeping women and your crack babies: Dredd is
moved by devotion and duty and a desire for simple dignity.
