I just ordered the full series of Terrahawks from Lovefilm for an amazing £9.93
It's not exactly a show from my childhood but I was raised on Gerry Anderson so his later work was still appealing and hey they have a great bad guy and it's a cool premise.

QMX Death Glider

This Death Glider from QMX looks so beautiful but as always money is too tight not only to buy the piece but to cover shipping and UK import taxes, such is life.

Well what can I say, they offered me 12 months at half price and I have missed some of the sport and would certainly miss out on this summers 20/20 cricket so I am once again a subscriber, for a year at least.
There is talk of both the IP VOD and 3D services rolling out in the next month or so but I don't really care about them, just more HD movies and sports plus stuff from Disco, NG and History and I'll be happy.

Dr Horrible Blu-ray

Rather surprisingly Josh Whedons Dr Horrible is getting a Blu-ray release in June, perhaps it indicates a more attractive price for authoring and pressing Blu-ray disks but already owning the DVD I wonder if this new release will be priced cheap enough if offered in the UK or sold region free to warrant a marginal increase in PQ

Flash Gordon

At last the incredible and over the top movie Flash Gordon starring Sam Jones is getting a Blu-ray release in June. I'm a huge fan of the movie even though it's a really tongue in cheek cheese fest but it has a rocking sound track, killer babes and an uber bad guy:)

Disney Blu-ray BOGOF

No idea how long this offer will last but DVD.CO.UK are having a buy one get one free on Disney Blu-rays which include pre-orders. I've ordered Toy Story 1 & 2 for a bargain £17.95 which is a great price by any ones standards:)
Not a must have but I've also ordered Bolt and Enchanted on Blu-ray under the same deal, not as exciting I know but they will find a place on my shelf.

SGU Trailer

It's about time the show returned, the break imposed by Syfy can do nothing but harm.

Mini Movie Reviews

The Time Travellers Wife

An epic romance across decades is the background to the relationship between Henry and Clare a couple who are are destined to marry after their first meeting when she was a young girl and he a mid 30's guy. It's not the most intense movie but if you settle into the pace it's a good love story as both handle the knowledge they each gain and impart thanks to Henry jumping through time.

Black Dynamite

A throwback to the 1970's black exploitation movies which peaked with the brilliant Shaft.
Black Dynamite is a former CIA operative who can fight better than anyone, satisfy a woman or women better than anyone but remembers where he came from and the promise to his mother.
The film is funny and in your face but an acquired taste.

The Proposal

A Sandra Bullock romantic comedy, nothing special there and while I enjoyed the movie and damn she
still looks fantastic (loved the near nude scene) it was not "while you were sleeping" but a welcome return
to form for the actress. Ryan Reynolds was good as her characters assistant/fianance and always good to
see Mary Steenbergen.

It's been around 2 months since I cancelled SKY and I've had one mail shot offering packages at half price for 6 months and I just got a phone call offering half price for 12 months, turned both offers down.
It's not that I dislike SKY's product (I was a subscriber for 18 years after all) but it was always something I wanted but not needed and I still haven't gotten over the shabby attempt to gouge an extra £5 a month out of me.
It's a small thing but there are times the only way an individual can express their displeasure is to withhold money from a corporation, they may not even notice but hey it makes me feel better and so far I have seen pretty much everything I want to via other means.
