RE: Whats your all time favourite film and why ?

favourite film for me is quite easy

Back to the Future

A perfect film if ever I saw one, and would not get bored even if I watched it every night

RE: wots this song,,,?

don`t forget to check out the original version either!

The cover as used on the ad is by Jose Gonzales, and is an
accoustic version of-
Heartbeats by The Knife a wedish electronic duo.

In my opinion, the original is far better and far more moving.

RE: Nintendo Wii (Was Revolution!)

you quite hate nintendo at a guess flloyd.

i really think that Nintendo have finally broken that kiddy image. I`d love to see kids play some of the games on the DS.

Trauma Centre, Nanostray, Sonic Rush, Castlevania, Meteos, Metroid Pinball and Hunters hardly aimed at kids some of them, and some are so bloody hard I wouldn`t dare give it to a 5-10 year old. OK, so Nintendogs and Animal Crossing aren`t exactly aimed at the casual PS2 gamer, but by heck when they`v sold in GTA numbers worldwide, I don`t think Nintendo are going to complain who is buying the games! I`ve had a DS since launch, and have never enjoyed games in quite a long time.

As for the Wii, I think its gonna take some getting used to saying it for some, but i think the look of the name really stands out, and it does draw me in. I`ll be getting one on launch night anyway. Just the controller concept amazes me, and some of the announced games are already whetting my appetite.

Already, an Exclusive Tony Hawk Game, a New Super Monkey Ball, Madden with actual throwing controls! Saddness (A black and white horror game) and more! and Nintendo haven`t even announced their games yet! This will certainly make up for the slightly poor Cube, and I wont even consider a PS3 or 360. Tho I have still got my PS2 with Guitar Hero and Buzz to enjoy!

I just want games to be fun! and I think the Wii is going to do just that.

RE: Name The Game! The Game Name Game! What`s That Game?

oh, it`s rollcage!

awesome, awesome game, and just as good as wipeout. Even better was the sequel, with its crazy marble maddness style tracks!

OK!

~Late in it`s life PlayStation Game

~Metal Gear Solid Meets Looney Tunes

~ACME Weapons and Daffy Duck play major roles in this game.


Mildy off topic, I`ve just got Rez brand new for the PS2 for £10. Was that a bargain, or is the game failry rubbish?

RE: Broken News

Quote:
Partridge was classic on whichever one of those he appeared.
Paraphrasing;

"Over to Alan Partridge in Paris...Alan,have you heard what the French minister had to say"
"Yes,I was talking with him this morning and he said he was happy with the way things were going"
"You spoke with him ? "
"Yes"
"But he only speaks French doesn`t he"
"...................yes"
"so what did he say"
"em..............Je...............ne..........bleeeeh "
"You don`t speak French do you Alan"
"...no"
"You didn`t speak to him at all did you"
"no"


that there is Chris Morris talking to Peter O`Hanarahanrahan!

still Day Today is a funny show.

Broken News wasnt too bad though, and It did get very funny towards the end, but I just found some of the stuff outside the main story `Tomato Flu` a bit pointless and rubbish,.

RE: Futurama, best season??

Season 3 is deffo the best. but all of them are worthy. u just get more episodes for ur Pound in Series 3. plus you get such classics as

Bendin in the Wind-ITS GOT BECK IN IT!
Time Keeps On Slipping-We, are the Globetrotters!
The Cyberhouse Rules
Where the Buggalo Roam
Insane in the Mainframe

Series 4 is next, and that has all the touching episodes in it, such as Jurassic Bark and The Sting

and recent rumours suggest that Futurama is coming back. but only for 3 Straight to DVD movies...

RE: Family Guy: The Return

i know that as far as terrestrial channels go, the BBC have the rights i believe. how much did they cut the Simpsons?

if this is true, BBC have got a real good deal, they lost the Simpsons just as the bad seasons were about to begin, and have got in return Family Guy, which is more popular than ever. I haven`t watched any of these new Simpsons on Channel 4, but have seriosuly enjoyed the old episodes on before Hollyoaks. Shame 4 insist on putting in such ludicrous ad breaks

RE: Gamecube.......another knockout punch.

no i do believe that the fact th copy protection was too good was the problem. Just look at the amount of threads on this forum on modding xboxes and PS2s. It just speaks for itself really. If people can play pirate games they will. Admitedly, advertising by Nintendo has, as always been lax. I for one have been very happy with my Gamecube, and would not at all swap it for one of the others.

RE: Games and DVD`s REALLLLLY cheap...

another dead giveaway is the fact no Gamcube games are stocked, mainly cos they can`t be copied, probably the main reason why no-one will buy the sodding console. No offence to anyone on here, but the mass amount of posts concerning chipping PS2`s and Xboxs on here does kinda suggest one thing to me.

RE: xbox or Gamecube?

Gamecube definately. i won`t go into any details on why, but it`s just more fun, and that`s always the most important thing. I`d say that the Xbox is just too adult orientated, and although the Cube is not a kiddie console, it does have more kids games. Get stuff like Mario Kart, which is one of the bundles this year, and definately Donkey Konga.

RE: why wont chronicles of riddick back up?please help.

listen, stop buying pirate games, n go buy the real one. with all the money you`ve saved on the `back up` versions you could afford a real one no. and besides, if you`ve got the real game, there`s no real need to worry anyway, cos you can still play the game. just try not to lose it, thats all. i find if you always put the game back on a shelf afterwards, you won`t lose it.

if you haven`t figured by now, no-one knows, and i`d guess that after three attempts, a fourth one ain`t gonna alter matters.

RE: Strokes Question

the `tron` video was for 12:51, the first single off room on fire. that was the official video for the song. now, i do know there was another alternative video to the song, sort of a hangin with the strokes live video, which i only saw on nme.com, but there were other places. can`t remember any more, but it`s a tedious thing to fret about anyway, so i wouldn`t really worry. as for why they did it. why not?

RE: The Spinx`s coconuts

i just got this game about a week ago now. got it on the cube and its highly enjoyable, apart from the stupid loading times and lack of voices, but the stunning art design blew me away, and it`s at just about the right level for my brain. not quite as good as zelda or beyond good and evil, but the capturing monsters aspect is cool, and the mummy levels blow anything else away.

i`ve been playing for about 12 hours overall, and have just got stuuck. quite a difficult boss im on

RE: Pot meet Kettle

at least Columbia Tristar have put the original black and white versions on the disc as well as the colourised ones. how clever of them, to put both the altered and original `visions` on the same disc. technology nowadays eh!

RE: Win a Donkey With Ribena!

Thats competition is almost as `good` as the local school quiz we entered where we, the winners won a big ugly clay `trophy` which although supposed to be a clay brain, did infact look more like a brocoli. The 2nd placed team, get a tub of Haribo, where third place get a bag of Haribo. We get, and let me reiterate this again. A CLAY BRAIN. Do kids and grownups love it so? NO. on the Ribena comp, is it compulsory to visit the donkey, or can you just do what you like with the grand?

RE: What`s your most regretted purchase?

Damien Rice `O` My god that bored me to tears. a few good tracks at the start. but nothing special at all. Luckily I`m now the proud owner of Devandra Banharts new album, which is far better. As for The Hidden Cameras. They may talk about golden showers, but i think it aint half a good album to listen to, but i also like tHe Polyphonic Spree.

RE: For f*cks sake! Shrek 2 cut to get `U` certificate...

i`ve seen the film, mainly cos i couldn`t wait until July, and the version i saw had the offending headbutt in it, and as soon as i saw it i said to my friends that will be cut from the UK version, GUARENTEED, and lo it has. not missing much though, and i felt it seemed out of place for a kids film personally.

RE: Donnie Darko Extended Version with more 80s anthems

well the only alternate songs he was going to use were...

MLK by U2 instead of Mad World cover by Gary Jules (later is better)
West End Girls by the Pet Shop Boys instead of Notorious by Duran Duran in dance sequence...West End Girls fits better in the sequence
Never TEar Us Apart by INXS instead of The Killing Moon by Echo and the Bunnymen, and god forbid he should replace that fantastic song!

of course, there could be other songs in the deleted scenes.

RE: Pop Quiz, hotshot!

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS



he doesn`t actually have a given name. In the screenplay, he is referred to as The Narrator. As Stanz says, Jack is just some names he reads in some Readers Digest. You could say his name was Cornelius, or Travis etc, as he says in the help groups. Tyler wasn`t his name, that was his other personality I came to that conclusion anyway. AFAIK, his name is never given.

RE: Beyond Good and Evil £17.99 GC

yeah its 55 blocks, cos of the photos i think, but don`t let that put you off. just get one memory card for it and it`ll be fine. it is a brilliant, brilliant game, and i`ve just played what is probably the most cinematic bit of game ever- the roof tops after going through the Alpha Section HQ. brilliant!

RE: Beyond Good and Evil £17.99 GC

yes, and it`s very, very good. it`s close to zelda, except maybe on the fighting front, where zelda probably beats it. but, the stealth elements are good and there are some real taxing puzzles, and a very good storyline. to top it all, the graphics are incredible, and the creator apararently prefers the Cube version over the others. For that price you can`t go wrong, and it`s another great but underhyped game from Ubisoft.

RE: Jonathon Creek - What Happened

btw, its jonathan. a little pedantic, but when your(as in my) name is spelt wrong i do get a little annoyed. i`ve had it spelt Jonathon far to many times in my life, but please, its Jonathan, and I`ve actually yet to meet anyone who is a Jonathon, or a Johnathon, Johnathan, or even a Jonifen. remember, cause less pain, its Jonathan.
