Loved Evo. Wasn't the best at the start but got really good as it went along.

Liked the 90's version too, but could be achingly slow at times. For a saturday morning cartoon it was surprisingly story heavy and melodramatic. Especially with Wolverine and his little love triangle with Jean Grey and Scott Summers. How do take a badassed, action-oriented character and devote an entire episode to him sitting on his bed and moping over the fact Jean liked Scott more than him?
I love almost anything to do with the xmen but I can't stomach the brand new re-booted version far far too dark for my taste

First class was dire as was some elements of wolverine origins namely deadpool, I mean seriously wth!

Watched Rush Hour 3 last night. I knew it was going to be bad, and it was, but I still loved it. :D Lots of classic Jackie Chan action. He still looks great, and I'm still in love with him. Added bonus, Chris Tucker wasn't nearly as annoying as he usually is. Still annoying, just not as much. And, the out-takes were the best of course. :lol:

I love crappy films with laughs and action :D Who wants some serious emotional stuff to unwind to? Not me! Chop socky ass-kicking attitude every time! :lol:

I love the way they have sold that DVD with a reversible cover so it will match the rest of the BBC videos. Such a thoughtful point.

Went to watch the new Star Trek on Tuesday and have to say I came out rather disappointed
Won't go into reasons why as I don't want to give any spoilers away

Tried a couple of new series that have popped up on Netflix recently. Hemlock Grove, watched the first episode. Horrible. Copper, have watched the first few episodes, really good!

And in that episode, they didn't even dig any ditches. :?

I found a box of VHS tapes which included some of the very early Time team episodes. My old telly is old enough to have a built-in tape player so I had great fun watching them. One of the first was set in Much Wenlock and we missed the recording of it by moving. It was such fun to see the town just as we left it but how tame and polite the team all were! :lol:

It poured down during most of that episode. :lol:

Nothing! :( Still haven't managed to get out and see Iron Man 3 or the new Star Trek. Now there's Epic out and coming soon, Monster University and Planes.

Epic just looks like Avatar/Ferngully so I'll give it a miss but Iron man and Star Trek rocked. You're really missing out. Go quickly before you have to wait on the DVDs :D
