    Terminator 6: Dark Fate (2019)

    I haven't watched a Terminator movie since T3, which is where I disengaged from a once fave franchise of mine. I'd only get behind another sequel if Cameron helmed one himself, which ain't gonna happen is it, and this new one looks bad to me, at least in that terrible trailer anyway. But I'll keep an open mind based off the fact that they got Tim Miller on it this time, so that's at least a slither of hope I suppose. I see they want to replicate the Robert Patrick affect in that they went with an average looking no-mark to play the baddie, but unlike Robert, this guy just looks like a dude I'd ask to point me towards the bread in Tesco. So presumably he must have REALLY shined during his audition, because at the moment I'm just not feeling the danger at all. Also, is this an alternate co-existing timeline, or have they completely binned the other sequels like they never happened?
  4. I'm not a huge fan of Coldplay or anything, but their latest song is very nice. What I find particularly special and more importantly; refreshing about the song is the sub-orchestral music which accompanies the lyrics themselves. Apart from the obvious beat, the music is made up mainly of strings and timpani, which as we all know is not exactly a common occurrence in the world of popular music. The melody itself is about as simplistic as they come and that is of course a great thing, Viva La Vida is one helluva catchy record and I'm glad it made number one in the UK sales chart, indeed they're something of an institution here. It's nice when something a little more unconventional, more my taste, makes the top spot. Have you heard it yet? Link to iTunes commercial Link to song. <--- Listen!

    Video Game Thread II

    Apparently the latest PSN firmware is banning the hackers. Anyway, this weekend I restarted Batman: AA. Still a freakin' classy piece of gaming arse.

    The Quick Question Thread

    Does anyone remember where it was that Spielberg revealed that Hooper was wrong about Quint's catch being a "game fish" and that it was in fact Bruce on the end of the line, when he told Hooper never to tell him his business again? I read about it fairly recently, but I've forgotten the source, and someone on a Jaws FB group is asking me to cite it.
  11. So yeah, I'm overcoming my snooty preconceptions about it based on the idea that I might be pleasantly surprised. I love TV surprises.
  12. But, it's The Karate Kid. And I'm a fuckin' snob.
  13. Karate Kid wasn't really a childhood favourite of mine. I mean, it was alright, from a kid's POV, but I wasn't really into it like I was The Goonies, or War Games. When I heard a few weeks ago it had now spawned a TV show, I suppose I sniggered to myself internally, like, WTF why was this ever made? I bet it's terrible! Then last week a TV guy I know unexpectedly recommend it to me, said believe it or not Lee it's actually really good light entertainment, well written and made. So that suddenly piqued my interest, and I'm going to give it a try, even though the content seems to be almost the exact opposite of what I normally look for. But sometimes that's what makes something worthwhile, init.
  14. Is this a quirky little ensemble type score then, or a big orchestral one? Would have been dead keen on the latter tbh. I've reimmersed back into ID4 again recently, it's such a fabulous car listen. I hadn't listened to it for probably fifteen years, and it feels like a rediscovery. Fuckin' brilliant leitmotif soundtrack from another time.

    Alan Menken's ALADDIN (2019)

    All I ever wanted was an instrumental version of the original score.
  16. Isn't Cobra Kai a YouTube Original? I think it's become its flagship show or something. Yes, just like what happened when you watched Twin Peaks (after its zeitgeist had also passed).

  18. Nolan found a way of making one of the most courageous and dangerous mass evacuations ever boring.

    Upcoming Films

    I couldn't find a relevant thread with the search function (and believe me, I looked) so I'm posting this here: http://www.empireonline.com/news/feed.asp?NID=23521 If an upcoming projects thread already exists this will need moving, but if not then I guess we now have a place to discuss future movies which aren't necessarily anything to do with John Williams, Indiana Jones or Spielberg etc and all in one tidy thread.

    Video Game Music

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2010-11-30-music-to-play-games-by-article Big fan of game scores here, in fact I'm becoming more and more satisfied by game scores than I am by their contemporary movie equivalents. There's a huge amount of creativity to be found in this relatively new industry and it's just producing better and better stuff each year.
