Aw, I wouldn't have ended up going anyway. sk

... it might not be the second coming but considering the current state of the British Film Industry, it's nothing short of genius. It has been said before that spaced is another example of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg's work. So check out the dvd if you wanna see their style. http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/search-handle-form/202-4365544-1963051

apart from being Russia's favourite love machine, he's also right about the Hellboy situation. Its fucked up... I'm seriously considering just buying the Region 1 directors cut bypassing the UK cinema release which is about two weeks before. Hope a few do the same and maybe Sony/ Columbia Tristar will realise that they fucked the handling of Hellboy over here RIGHT up.

What the HELL is up with that cartoon in the corner?! That is not an image I needed with my morning coffee you awful varmints.

BRUCE CAMPBELL AND HULK HOGAN SHOULD HAVE GAY ZOMBIE SEX IN "SHAUN OF THE DEAD" "GIVE IT TO ME HARDER, BROTHER, HARDER!" AND GEORGE LUCAS RAPED MY CHILDHOOD!

Mr Chuff, I've already gone ahead and picked up the R1 disc, but rather than a cocked-up release, the studio have got a geek triple threat, so you end up buying the R1 cos you can't wait, buy a cinema ticket because you want to see it on the big screen, and then pick up the Director's Cut so you see the extra footage. They got me good.

The emerald isle is not the U.K. its Ireland, the country I live in.
Aug. 11, 2004, 10:23 a.m. CST
It does mean the island of Ireland, and Harry clearly doesn't know this, but he's not entirely wrong, in that the island of Ireland includes N. Ireland - and the UK is the 'UK of GB and NI'... so, whatever... he's not entirely wrong, but he didn't know that he wasn't, so he's still a monkey

I see myself doing the exact same thing regarding Hellboy. One question though. Did you get your DVD player 'chipped'? If so where and how much. I have a bog standard R2 unit and don't want to get a multi-region player.

Too true mr chuff but its for the other folks who are oblivious to the charms of hellboy as a movie i truly believe it can be a hit here in the UK they just need to put some faith in the audience like they did with shaun of the dead. By the way my ID is a Hellboy reference i am not gay and possess no Boney M LPs.

I agree with the comments regarding "WHERE THE FUCK IS HELL BOY IN THE UK?" In this day and age, distributors can't afford to mess around like this, I remember waiting for Return of the Jedi, finding out it had opened in USA and then waiting six months for it to come over here. Now, all these years later, times have changed and I don't have to wait any more, I just have to use my big fat credit card and get it on import then the film will be down at least 10 pairs of tickets as I am sure I will spread the wealth and lend my copy to all my friends. But I don't want to do that to Ron Perlman, don't make me be mean to poor little Ron.

Shaun of the dead is the first british movie in...well, EVER that was called 'THE BEST BRITISH MOVIE EVER' that didnt totally suck ASS!

According to the UK Film Distributor's Association (which is about as 'official' as you can get for release dates), Hellboy is expected to hit British cinemas on September 2nd. The Showcase Cinema UK website lists it as the 3rd. Either way, I already saw it on VCD two months ago...
Aug. 11, 2004, 12:07 p.m. CST
Shaun of the dead ownzzzz no hype. no bullshit. just simple fact that edgar and simon own comedy. not in that stupid ass starsky and hutch, ben stiller kinda way, or that moronic anchorman style, just pure old fashion comedy. These guys had ever opportuinty to take the easy way out on thier plot points and punchlines, but made the effort... let me say that again.. EFFORT, to but something more on screen, something better. Bravo. Well done. I can not wait to get my grubby hands on each and every single piece of work these guys have made and will make for a long time to come. ps... QT and Eli were fucking cool, down to earth and easily approachable... fucking dream come true... MO YOU ROCK!!!!! pps... WTF is hell boy doing in this talk back ya faggs ( and no I dont mean ciggs ) mace out waiting for the next AICN bomb

...it could have used a bit more gore. That said, the most explicit scene in the film easily outdid anything offered by the (theatrical) Dawn remake or the pitifully-sanitised Resident Evil.

Anybody notice how there is absolutely NO reviews out there for AVP yet? For a movie coming out in two days and to have nothing..... I have a bad feeling about this... OUt here

But thank god we dont use Euros yet and hopfully never will, also as a Brit ive already seen Hellboy and imo its well worth catching even if it aint the cool ass film some have made it out to be
Aug. 11, 2004, 2:46 p.m. CST
Has anyone seen the AICN animation of Harry and Mori giving each other BJs???? WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?? My eyes are burning!!! GAAH!! Seriously, somebody stop it.
Aug. 11, 2004, 2:59 p.m. CST
... it references Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut." If you'll recall, after Kubrick died, the studio added digital people in capes and hoods to the scenes with graphic sexual content to obscure the "objectionable" images. That's why there's a "flicker" in the images of the hooded people around Moriarty and Harry.
Aug. 11, 2004, 3:32 p.m. CST
They did WHAT? Why would they do that? Is there anyway to view it with out the "digital people"? On a special DVD? Or what? Also, that animation is still really fucked up. -JH :0
Aug. 11, 2004, 3:56 p.m. CST
Kubrick presented the film to the studio without the CG people. He died four days later. The studio knew that with all of the graphic sex at the party, there's no way they would get an 'R' in the US. ('NC-17' films aren't carried by many theater chains or rental stores, plus the MPAA bans adverts for 'NC-17' films. It would have been a lost cause, financially.) So, they added CG hooded people. A quick look over at eBay reveals some uncut versions of the film, mostly from Europe or Asia. They seem to be selling for about $30. As interested as I am in seeing "Kubrick porn," that's a bit steep for only about 60 seconds of screen time.

I just got around to reloading the page... before it was the superman one, if I copy and pasted it I would get a frame of the Eyes Wide Shut cartoon... now the whole thing is playing... now I am REALLY DISTURRRRBBBBDUH. Peace.

Quentin Tarantino making a horror movie. Wonder what would happen? Peace.

Quite true, he did. Still, I wonder what would happen with him in the director's chair. Peace.
Aug. 11, 2004, 11:36 p.m. CST
talk about no respect for the dead...Gosh...I mean, I understand about the whole NC-17 thing, but it's Stanley Effing Kubrick. Just pay off the MPAA in his honour. *rolls eyes* I love that movie too... -JH :mad:

Except without the blood and everything. And I part my hair on the OTHER side. And I have cooler glasees. (heh,heh) Really though, it was (almost) like seeing a photograph of myself that I've never seen before. -- Oh, ... and by the way, ... why is that animation in the corner still there??? If you're going to do Kubrick parady, couldn't you come up with "aintitcooler" animation??? (I'm not sure if that animation shows that Harry is simply a HUGE fan of Tom Cuise ... or if it's an advertisement for Hormel Chili.)
Aug. 12, 2004, 4:13 a.m. CST
First off, Brits don't use Euros, Jackass... Secondly, Let us make up our own mind about the film. FYI I enjoyed MiB so you've just proven that I'll enjoy Hellboy. Tip for the future: Don't tell people that their opinion should match yours, as you obviously have bad taste!

It's not 'euros' its 'euro, short for European Dollar. Euro is an uncountable noun, please don't pluralise a word that cant be pluralised. Its like saying 'sheeps'.
