    They sure do. I bought a book of Gil Elvgren's classic pin up art last year which is very similar to that.


    A few minutes ago on quiz show The Chase -

    Question - Who played Sam Witwicky in the Transformers trilogy?

    Old Lady - Jason Statham!

    How big is Guy Pearce's role in "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark"? Only thing about it which interests me.

    Elizabeth, Guy Pearce is in all of the film but the focus is the little girl's encounter with the little demons haunting the mansion, her parents Pearce and Katie Holmes think she's imagining them by the end of the film everyone's under attack by demon gremlins. I can't remember if Guy Pearce had a shirtless scene though. :)



    You know what the lady was thinking of? The Transporter trilogy... starring Jason Statham. ;)

    Mike that was funny, Connery's Zed has been our mascot here in testyland for years, I wonder if Sean Connery knows? Would he be happy if he did? :)

    Tony, great film. I have it on blu-ray too.

    Saw Contraband today. Mainly enjoyed it for Mark Wahlberg, as the story is run-of-the-mill and quite implausible. Like Kate Beckinsale, too, though her role is rather small.

    I have a hard time buying Three Muskateers being any good, it's directed by Paul Anderson. That guy makes terrible movies that are only watchable due to Millas amazing presence. :P

    I watched X-Men: First Class for the second time over the weekend. I have no problem with it winning best picture. It's that damned good.

    I'm surprised he liked "Green Lantern", "Green Hornet" and especially "The Hangover II" over some of those other films. I mean, Hangover II isn't so much a sequel as a shit remake. Just a terrible film. When Zach Gallifianaiaaksisks and a monkey can't save a film, you know you're in trouble...

    Here's his Worst Films of 2011:

    Worst Films
    Sucker Punch
    Potiche (Trophy Wife)
    Miral
    Insidious
    Rampart
    Straw Dogs
    Paranormal Activity 3
    Meek’s Cutoff

    Personally, I liked Paranormal Activity 3 and Insidious more then Red State and Attack the Block. :P

    Oh, and The Iron Lady can fuck off. Talk about an obvious Oscar bait "Kings English" film for awards season. I'm NOT looking forward to it. The trailers put me right off it. The panning in close up as Thatcher says some wise "chicken soup for the Tory soul" crap wile the music swells is as painful as that "BECAUSE I HAVE A VOICE!" "Yes, yes you do..." smug garbage from last year. BLECH! I'd rather watch a Transformers movie, it's honest BS instead of this stuff.

    And the Tom Hanks 9/11 movie... wow. Looks like a huge miss-step for all involved. Tragedy-ploitation at it's worst.

    I'm not exactly gagging to see Iron Lady either Russ, I hated her as Prime Minister, so did millions of Brits. But I am looking forward to blind buying Three Musketeers on Blu-ray, I missed it at the cinema and I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun. Anderson isn't a great director but like Michael Bay he's a very visual director. He knows where to place the camera.

    Surprised QT wasn't impressed with Drive and didn't like Sucker Punch, I would have thought those films were right down his alley.

    I wish there was a backlash for The Artist for some reason I don't want it to win Best Picture at the Oscars, and I hope it's not The Descendants either, that looks thoroughly ordinary. I wish they'd surprise us and give it to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, not one of my faves but it did get great reviews. Anyone see Hugo yet? War Horse?
