'The Happening' - that title makes me laugh ever time I see it. Could he have come up with anything more vague?
Least enticing film title since 'Executive Decision'.0
Not a bad choice... wonder how much they're going to process his voice?
He's got a pretty recognisable voice so I hope it's got a nice distorted effect to disguise it a bit.
In fact I'm really hoping all the robots have interesting voice effects... when the original cartoon had something as iconic as Soundwave's vocoded voice, the film's a massive excuse to go all out with the sound and speech effects.0
Used to have a horrible job in a German warehouse lifting microwaves years ago as a poor student, and ran through game tunes in my head all day to pass the time - tried it with normal songs but since they'd only last a couple of minutes I got tired of having to come up with new ones.
Looped game tunes were miles better, could just keep one going 'til I got absolutely sick of it...
got really hooked on stuff from Kirby's Adventure which was great mindless working music. Tune from the black-and-white level at the end especially!0
The description of the Blackout scene sounds pretty good... and he's one of the best of the new designs. At least the robot-smashes-things-up scenes should be decent... balanced out by some vomitous dialogue scenes probably.0
Well that's the first time I've ever seen a loading screen included in a game trailer
That laughing super-villain guy and ninja schoolgirl look great0
Last night's episodes were great (scrumping apples & painting). I noticed in both how good the music was - especially the brief moment in the painting one when it was in the style of the gallery music from Take Hart. A nice nod to Morph there.
The painting one really was fantastic. It's this little oasis of goodness in the middle of the daytime TV desert
The sheep expressions are just endlessly funny0
Y'know the way Mario Kart 64 on the Virtual Console had no way of replicating the Memory Card ghost saves?
Will that affect the chances of this game ever showing up on Virtual Console, if I remember right it used the Memory Card to save? It'd be a massive shame to never see this on VC...0
Have to say I prefer the EP version of 'No Cars Go' by far... the 'Neon Bible' version is a bit overdone with its beefed-up strings and massive choir. The original has those great marching drums which are pushed way down in the new mix... and I kind of prefer it when it's clearly just the band themselves making all that noise at the end.
Production on 'Neon Bible' is definitely a step up from 'Funeral' though, and it's got some proper chills-down-the-spine moments, even if it all doesn't hang together quite as well.
'The Well and the Lighthouse' has been drilled in my head since I heard it...0
Did the Donnie Darco directors cut add any extra scenes or explanation?
Adds a couple of short scenes and pages from the time travel book but the additions don't do it any favours. Like Alex said, it narrows the film down where the original's vague explanation is far better. God, the horrible faux computer-screen 'delete' message he stuck over the rewind sequence drove me crazy.0
get on his show however and it's crappy innuendo a-fuckin'-hoy.
It's his job?0
Hope this turns out to be decent. Already though I have a problem with the idea they call the ship they're sending to the sun the Icarus. And its successor the Icarus II! Isn't that jinxing your mission a bit? Why not call it the Doomed Crew while you're at it?0
I'd love NoA to put that there for real, just that one little tip of the hat to their mascot.
Although I suppose the thought of curious kids disappearing down it would put them off...0
Maybe if they get John Waters to direct FF30
How they're going to pull off an appearance by Galactus, I don't know. Especially with the original director doing his ham-fisted thing....
(originally wrote 'how they're going to pull off Galactus' there, which conjured up all sorts of ugly images)0
The Third Man?
And el Croux, that Fargo pic is genuinely brilliant0
Nice, would've been a shame to have Pan overlooked in that category especially. Hope it picks up a few more0
I thought Wario was whipping the little characters for a second there.
That's exactly what it looks like. Would buy the game if it had that sort of minigames0
Aw, it looks like they're going for the movie look rather than the comic.... if any game cried out for thick, dark cel-shaded shadows, it's one based on Mignola's stuff. Something done in the style of Killer 7, say, would make an amazing Hellboy game.
Doesn't look bad though, it just isn't really running with the material it's been given, IMO0
Not expecting any of these anytime soon but i'd go mad for
Earthbound (SNES) - only ever played the emulated version, love the sense of humour and music to pieces
Parodius (SNES) - never played this properly, really want to
Spacestation Silicon Valley (N64) - again, just funny and great music0
Bit scared of this....
I mean, most of the new episodes end up losing their thread after ten minutes and just fire off naff random jokes - the thought of that stretched out of the half-hour format to fill a film just makes me queasy.
Especially when you think of how tightly written the Simpsons at its best was.
Then again if they've brought back most of the writers from its heyday it could be back on form...
Gah! Could go either way
(probly the bad way)0
aidey6 - Your bouncing-Wii avatar is seriously hypnotic. Can't take my eyes off it....0
Louis Theroux is on BBC2 on Sunday Night
in Film, TV & Radio
It was great, thing was you couldn't really even get too annoyed or offended by what those people were saying, their ideas were so random and mental... Just way too ridiculous to take at all seriously.
Kept thinking some of their slogans would make amazing T-shirts, like the Sweden one.
Or 'Fags Destroy Nations'. That's a big claim!
