I got my Blu-ray copy of Avatar in the post today, off to watch it in a few minutes but just giving a quick skim the use of 16:9 doesn't feel right when you know the movie should be in scope. I'm pretty sure I'll be double dipping in a year when the uber release has been out for a few months and the price drops but for now this will do just fine:)

BSG Blackbird

The guys at QMX have a new replica on the way, this time we are being treated to a very limited edition of the Blackbird stealth ship from BSG. It's beautiful and if I had a good chunk of expendable income or won the lottery I'd be there but I don't:)

Humpty Dumpty

Ok I didn't fall off a wall but my long serving Buffy cappuccino mug finally succumbed to gravity and broke into three pieces, I probably could glue it together but what are the odds of scolding me bits when it cracked again:)
I've done a search and can only find one of the mugs on ebay as they have long since stopped manufacture and surprisingly the large mug memorabilia market seems to have died a death.

There is a funky True Blood mug I would have to import and a snazzy black Supernatural mug, not sure which I fancy but I've certainly don't like normal mugs after using me Buffy mug for so long:)

Going Postal - Official Trailer

I can't get the embedded video to play on this site so the link to the SKY1 site will have to do.
I have to say the production values look good but not quite sure the man in a suite golem looks good enough, perhaps the CGI option was too expensive.
