I watched Kill Bill tonight (haven't seen it in a few years) forgot how much I like it, I love the music in it too.

I agree it does look silly how every Tim Burton film now seems to have them two in it. Though I can't complain cos I still think Depp is brilliant, I can't see many actors being able to play Burtons kooky characters that well. Bonham-carter I'm not too fussed about.

I'm going to see Alice in Wonderland at the IMAX in 3D next week woo!

Am I able to see it -not- in 3D?

Yeah I think my local cinema has it in both. Some places don't do 3D altogether so they usually have 2D option :-)

I just hope 3D movies don't start monopolising cinemas like they're threatening to at the moment. Sure, they look pretty and everything but it costs nearly half as much again as a normal ticket to watch the damn things. I only went to see avatar because one of my mates works at our local cinema and got me in for free.

Besides, Wales isn't a proper country anyway.[/quote]

Do you really wanna start a nationalist debate :lol:

And you with a scouser flag. A part of England most English people would cut adrfit long before Wales if truth be told.

Anyway back on topic I finally saw Pandorum the other day. Gotta be honest I was not that impressed. Passed a few hours away.

I'm not really a fan of 3D to be honest. It seems ashame to have advanced high definition technology which is then blurred in the background.

Seemed more like a layered 2D affect rather than 3D, maybe I'm too fussy.

The cynical cow in me can't help but think 3D is a swizzle, it's just a way to make pirating harder. Chris paid over £25 for our tickets yesterday, if you look at the right time you can usually get 2 Blurays for that price. (or a chart Bluray and some wine and sweets).

No nationalist debate here. Just a comment designed purely for laughs and welsh-baiting.
Also, I'm not actually a scouser. I just have a long and dull story which I shan't bother boring you with as to why I support the team. :D

I quite liked Pandorum. Aliens meets The Abyss plus some Dennis Quaid thrown in for good measure. Enjoyable stuff.

I haven't seen it myself but you're the first person I've seen who seems to have anything positive to say about it.

It's not too bad. The main actor's southern-english accent disapears every now and again, and it doesn't look like it's been made with the biggest graphics budget, but for a night-out in the cinema it's alright.

I hated Starship Troopers 3 so much that my eyes bled. 2 was actually quite watchable, but still nothing on the original.

i was sitting here thinking how stupid do americans have to be for Batman to label his ladder 'bat-ladder'. im so glad Batman is english now.

then i was pissing myself when the shark appeared. lol shark repellent spray (although why would you need whale repellent spray?). the sad thing is, the Adam West era Batman was the most true to the comics. just shows you what a lack of immagination people had.

I like the Adam West Batman. Not because it's gripping and intense like The Dark Knight (hands down my favourite Batman film so far), but because it doesn't take itself seriously. It's stupid and it knows it.

Other way round for me. 2 was one of the worst films I've ever seen.
