There Is No Plan B

Posted by Neil Davey | Tue, 12/01/2010 - 11:41

I believe the word is "woot". Or, possibly, "gah" depending on how much you loved the original series and how much you suspect Hollywood may have ballsed it up. Yep, it's the official A-Team trailer. Forget the grainy, bad quality leak of last week, here it is in all its shiny glory. 

Will it rock? Will it suck? We have no idea, but Liam Neeson as George Peppard can't be bad. And any trailer that finishes with a tank on parachutes shooting down a plane is alright in our book.

Armchair Viewing: a selection

Posted by Justin Bateman | Mon, 11/01/2010 - 14:12

I'm adopting a new approach to Armchair Viewing today which I'm calling 'blind recommendations'. I haven't seen any of them (I don't think) but on the whole, I think they've received decent reviews.  

First up is Traffic (10pm-12.50am, Five), Steven Soderbergh's multi-Oscar-winning adaptation of the TV mini series. Starring Benicio del Toro and Micahel Douglas, this look at the drugs trade is actually beginning to feel familiar now that I'm writing about it. Hmm. Maybe I have seen it after all. Anyway, it's bound to be a hard-hitting drama. Probably.
