Weird that my cinema are seemingly less fussed about people being noisy and more about advertising that fucking Movietickets.co.uk shite, which always prompts my response "WHY ARE YOU AMERICANS USING DOT CO DOT UK??"


Orange doesn't exist as a company in the UK anymore so I'm sure we won't be seeing any more of those annoying movie spoof ads...instead we get Kevin fucking Bacon every time...which is equally annoying if you go often!

They do still exist, EE are an umbrella company running 4GEE, Orange and T-Mobile. Orange as a network still exists for now although in a couple of years time things may change. The 2 for 1 thing is still called Orange Wednesdays for Orange customers but it's also available for EE customers as well.

I go to the cinema so rarely I hardly ever see the same advert twice. Although there are a lot of films coming out this year that'll tempt me ( Iron Man 3, Kick Ass 2, The Man of Steel, Star Trek Into Darkness, Thor: The Dark World, Evil Dead, The World's End, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and The Hobbit 2 ).

I apologise if I was wrong...Just, the Orange shops are gone and I've seen no Orange branded stuff since EE started ramming Bacon down our throats...and haven't heard 2 for 1 wednesday called Orange Wednesday for even longer!

Yeah, I've heard of that. It's causing a bit of a rumble among the fans of the books. Apparently, the characters in the stories are all around 13 years old but they've cast twenty-somethings in the roles instead, while others are up in arms because they've cast Americans, which means even more hilarious regional "English" accents.
So much anger. The Imdb message board can be brilliant sometimes. :lol: :lol:

You'll probably love it but I thought it was one of the worst films I saw last year, nearly as bad as Skyline...but not quite!

Watched Grabbers on DVD tonight. It was pretty good, but not quite as good as I was expecting. Set my expectations really high for this one.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

I quite the look of it, and having no preconceptions based on a series of books I haven't read, I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up liking it more than some of the "fans".

Of course, it might just be a big old pile of pants.

Underworld Rise Of The Lycans I have all 4 of these films, and I love the lot of them, proof an adult fantasy action franchise can be successful, these films look amazing, are well acted and thought out, and aren't watered down for the kids 9/10
