"Cock it!"

What's it about?
When the zombie apocalypse finally arrives, Shaun (Simon Pegg) leads his best mate (Nick Frost), his mum (Penelope Wilton), his ex-girlfriend (Kate Ashfield) and her friends (The Office's Lucy Davis and Black Book's Dylan Moran) to the safest place in London – er, the pub.

"Hasta la vista, baby."

What's it about?
With Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) in a mental institution, her son John (Edward Furlong) is living with foster parents while becoming something of a minor criminal himself. The original Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) returns to LA but instead of trying to kill Sarah this time has been reprogrammed to protect John (by his future self, obviously) from the more advanced and seemingly indestructible T-1000 (Robert Patrick).

Armchair Viewing: Pitch Black (2000)

Posted by Justin Bateman | Sat, 30/01/2010 - 12:30

Johns: How's it look?
Riddick: Looks clear.
[Johns steps forward, and a creature flies out towards them. They duck and it flies into the night]
Johns: You said it was clear!
Riddick: I said it *looked* clear.
Johns: Well, how does it look now?
Riddick: Looks clear.

What's it about?
Criminal Riddick (Vin Diesel) is being transported from one prison to another when the space craft he is travelling in crash lands on a seemingly barren planet. It soon becomes apparent that as well as trying simply to survive the condition, he and the crew of the craft are not alone although quite what they're up against is unclear.

Surrogates round table: sex with robots?

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Sat, 30/01/2010 - 12:22

Surrogates

In the past week, film press worldwide have been given the opportunity to join virtual round-table discussions for the home entertainment release of Surrogates, starring Bruce Willis. The round table that I “virtually” attended, was headed by Dr James Canton, a global futurist and the CEO of the Institute for Global Futures, and Randall Alley, CEO and Chief Prosthetist for biodesigns.

Repo Men: the new trailer

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Fri, 29/01/2010 - 16:57

The "red band" (ie, a little bit naughty) trailer has been released for the film Repo Men, starring one of my least favourite actors on the planet – Jude Law. Oh, how I do despise him! But Repo Men looks like it might be a pretty good film, despite Law's presence. Here's the synopsis, and the trailer is embedded below. Enjoy …

In the futuristic action-thriller Repo Men, humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called The Union. The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you don’t pay your bill, The Union sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its property … with no concern for your comfort or survival.

Armchair Viewing: Master & Commander: Far Side of the World (2003)

Posted by Neil Davey | Fri, 29/01/2010 - 09:09

"And we are worth more to them undamaged. Their greed... will be their downfall. England is under threat of invasion, and though we be on the far side of the world, this ship is our home. This ship, is England. So it's every hand to his rope or gun, quick's the word and sharp's the action. After all... surprise is on our side!"

What's it about?
A Royal Navy ship of the coast of South America, the HMS Surprise, has the unenviable task of stopping a superior French vessel, the Acheron. After an inital battle proving the Acheron's superiority, Captain Jack Aubrey (Russell Crowe) must choose. Retreat back to England and admit defeat? Or make repairs, hunt down the Acheron and try once again - a mission that's likely to equate to suicide?
