Back to the … Theatres

Christopher Lloyd and Michael J.Fox (Universal) Yup, Back to the Future is coming back to cinemas (hopefully across the country) on October 21st 2015 alongside the launch of several box sets including the movies, the animated series, extra content, a light up flux capacitor, behind the scenes footage and more. October 21st is the date Marty goes to when he travels to the future to deal with his kids and will probably be a very eventful day around the world for all fans of Back to the Future. Universal knows this and are definitely on the hype train to help … Continue reading

50 Shades of (Lego®) Grey

I’m not sure what to think of this Lego® trailer for 50 Shades of Grey. I’ve found the whole 50 Shades Phenomenom to just fly by me and now even Lego® is in on it. I feel like this is missing some kind of humour that makes it Lego®. I’m all for Lego® to continue making parodies but this one I’m not sure about.

Avatar is a must see film – at IMAX in 3D

On Tuesday night we went to see Avatar at the IMAX in Bradford’s National Museum of Film and Photography. I had semi high expectations for the film but had heard some bad press so how good it would be was left wide open. someone suggested we go to see it at the IMAX as it is vastly better, so that’s what we did. The film was visually incredible, the attention to detail in the 3D work is undoubtedly the best I’ve seen. Pandora (the moon the Navi live on) is a world I wish I could experience first hand, from … Continue reading

St Trinian’s 2 – Good, but not that good

We went to see St Trinian’s 2, the Legend of Fritton’s Gold on Sunday in Bradford at Cineworld. It was fun to watch, but sadly, it was definitely a sequel, it failed to live up to the sheer audacity and stupidity that St Trinian’s 1 offered. I’m not saying it was terrible, far from it, it’s lines like “We’re your worst nightmare” – “You’re not The Beegees…Take That” that make a film like this good, they’re quick, disappear in a flash but give you a good giggle when they’re delivered (those lines are in the trailer below.) St Trinian’s 2: … Continue reading

9 – Interesting film – Not sure about it.

I watched 9 last night and while it certainly was emotional, I was left feeling somewhat let down and confused at the end of it. I’m going to talk about specifics in the film here so if you’ve not seen it yet and intend to, don’t ready anymore. It starts off with a guy creating a small doll (that is to be 9) and bringing it to life. 9 soon meets others who are like him who explain what happened to the world – the film is set in a post apocalyptic future where man has been wiped out. So … Continue reading

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan

For those who haven’t seen it, this is the trailer for Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, a direct to DVD movie to fill in the void between the end of Battlestar Galactica and the (hopeful) beginning of Caprica early in the new year. The Plan is set sometime around the miniseries and series one and will be told from the Cylons perspective explaining things such as the disappearance of Ellen Tigh.

THE Final Destination (3D)

In a word: no. In three words: not worth it. Yeah it was gory, but the second one was better (still not beating the first but that had the advantage of being the first.) It followed the plot of the sequels exactly; people avoid a disaster, guy keeps getting premonitions, one couple refuse to accept it, guy gets guts pulled out of his anus… OK maybe that bit was unique. Then at the end, they think they survived only to find out, no, they didn’t, and dead. If anyone reads that and thinks I spoiled the ending – where have … Continue reading

InnoISAM / District 9

InnoISAM is what I need, a happy medium between InnoDB and MyISAM. I need the speed of inserts of InnoDB with the speed of selects of MyISAM – no HEAP will not work because the JOIN that I do results in the HEAP table being converted into MyISAM. You get two tables that deal with 2 extreme’s but not good happy medium table. Monday also became MarketDefender day today, a website I don’t like working on because the work I do on it involves working with a payment gateway – something I have never enjoyed but roped myself into technically … Continue reading
