The Origins of Real Frustration

The irony! Not that long after I had a go at the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine I buy it on DVD.
Strange you might think, but I wanted to hear the commentary and watch the extras. I bought it online and didn't take much interest on the actual content. Dumb move! The DVD arrives and even with the extra disc (A wasted DVD-5 disc) there's virtually no extra material. Then I take notice of the myriad of ads for the Blu-Ray discs. Clearly, this is a marketing DVD to get people to switch over to the new format. Sadly, although I could stretch to about £100 for a decent budget Blu-Ray player, I can't also afford a HD ready television. It's my own fault, but it was either two weeks in South Florida for my vacation or a new entertainment system.

Real life Vs Virtual I believe.

DVD Review: Colin

Check out my review of this superb nil-budget zombie movie. It's well worth your time and effort. Don't let the £45 budget comment put you off if you're a horror movie fan. Certainly watch it if you're a Romero zombie film fan;

Attention Blake's 7 fans!

Ok, so to my followers, I apologise for no updates. There's been a flurry of activity on the Zombieland poster blog post, but who knows what you've been talking about lol!

I have to share the following with Blake's 7 fans. It's a link to the reliable but not particularly well known site The Geek Files at the Coventry Telegraph. I recommend it for fantasy news updates on the fly.

Anyway, I'd heard about the intention to continue or reimagine Blake's 7 some time ago. I couldn't raise much interest, especially after the awful audio play that turned a well loved show into a stark, tedious drama that eschewed the characterisation of it's source. However, today I spy the picture that The Geek Files has posted. I saw it and let out a naughty word.

By that I mean the picture looks exceptionally cool :o)

Have a look;
