Devils Backbone, Silver Surfer and Soul Calibur DD

Films watched:

The Devils Backbone

Creepy and disturbing - but no Pan's Labyrinth

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Good (brain on hold) fun. Better than the original.


It has also recently been announced that Sould Calibur 4 is heading to Xbox 360 and PS3 (a separate game, Soul Calibur Legends, is heading to the Wii). To accompany this announcements, to screenshots were shown (a screenshot of Ivy is belwo).

Now, I'm big fan of Ivy, but those are just creepy and uncomfortable.

Surely she must suffer terrible back pains!

Comeback line

This tickled me :)


Marine Corp's General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio the other day and you have to read his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love this!!!! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female broadcaster and US Marine Corps General Reinwald who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military installation.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?

GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to become violent killers.

GENERAL REINWALD: Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

The radio went silent and the interview ended. You gotta love the Marines!

Spidey 3, Zodiac and 28 weeks

Okay, back from Scotland bearing haggis and fudge, time for the mini reviews for the films I saw whilst on holiday

Films watched:

Spiderman 3

Flabby, overstuffed sequel. Still fun, but not up to standard.


Interesting, but not exactly entertaining. Seven this isn’t.

28 Weeks Later

Entertaining sequel. Very strong first half, slightly derivative second half.

Also managed to catch up on my TV... i.e. watched the last episode of series 3 of Lost... My response...

Charlie...... NO!!!!

Locke - phew!
