Currently watching the end of Hawk the Slayer on the laptop - Jack Palance is threatening to hang some nuns. Having reached the end it wasn't quite as I expected - I seem to recall the Elf surviving and the others biting the bullet - then riding off with his arm in a sling. Any ideas on where I might have picked that up from?

Went to see Underwired this evening with uberredfraggle - I was supposed to go into the office but didn't get further than one of our other offices in the centre of town thus saving £3.00 in bus fare.

Understated was an OK film - far too many goths with machine-guns really to let me concentrate on the finest features of the movie, but I chuckled enough. Silliness and sequel potential.

All in all I think the Oscar potential of Underwhelmed is in "Best Buttocks" or "Best Supporting Rubberwear" rather than "Best Actress" or any of those other mainstream awards.

Next up on the DVD, though probably tomorrow, will be "The One Game" which I discovered on Ian's shelf.

You found a DVD copy of the One Game??

I remember watching it on telly in the early '80's; almost no-one else has ever even heard of it to the point that I started thinking I'd imagined seeing it. Six-part ITV series, with a really weird and haunting title theme, yes?

TV Fanboy Moment Ahoy

Hmm. Just checked the link, and it looks like the original 6-parter (which I'm sure was early 80's - I wasn't much older than 14, which would be '85 at the latest) may have been edited into a TV movie. Let me know?

Re: TV Fanboy Moment Ahoy

That's the one. I'm quite excited. It's preserved in the original format - four chapters for Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. I've watched the first 10 minutes which have some fine rat-footage.

certainly 'Best supporting Corsetry' - damn vampires don't need to eat, drink or breathe... and Mz Beckinsale was very shiny.
but the plot was a bit Spoons
