    My company designed most of the artwork for Terminator and Potter but I wish we got to work on Star trek and the others on that list - but different studios...:idea: I'm really looking forward to star trek the most I think.

    I just finished the new Int'l banners yesterday for Potter and it is shaping up to be really good and much darker.

    Dumbledore finally looks like a bad ass...:thumb: (right as they kill him off - go figure)

    You'd think - everyone does - but the truth is the print and marketing side of movies isn't all that glamorous...lol

    Ya, but judging from your cars, it pays pretty good.

    Just saw x-men...I liked it
    Watchmen was badass.

    Can't wait for Terminator and Transformers.

    Funny thing about X-men. I've been hearing a lot that they planned on changing the ending since the movie got leaked over a month early... I still haven't seen it... i still don't wanna be that guy.. haha.

    I just watched the Jason Stathan remake of Death-Race, which I thought was hilarious - pure cheese, just the thing to put your feet up and disappear a couple of beers to...
    To put myself in the right frame of mind I also rented the original Death-Race 2000 and Death Match with David Carradine - I'd forgotten Roger Corman films had so much gratuitous bum-and-nipple-action going on...never a bad thing IMO...both of which were shockingly bad but huge fun nontheless...I'd also forgotten that a very young Sylvester Stallone plays Machine-Gun Joe in '2000

    I also recently watched Burn After Reading and Michael Clayton (both with George Clooney and Tilda Swinton) both of which I thought excellent...

    Favourite films are a bit varied:
    The Third Man
    The Battle of Britain
    Star Wars (but only IV, V and VI - not the lame new ones!)
    Vanishing Point
    Bullitt
    In Which We Serve
    The Gift Horse
    The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp
    The Great Escape
    Pitch Black
    The Hill
    Apocalypse Now - Redux
    Ben-Hur
    The Battle of Algiers
    Casablanca
    Breaker Morant
    Fargo
    Das Boote
    The Train
    Point Blank
    Grosse Pointe Blank
    Fail-safe
    Dr Strangelove
    The Dam Busters
    The Spy Who Came in From The Cold
    The Manchurian Candidate (the original John Frankenheimer movie, starring Frank Sinatra and Lawrence Harvey)
    Patton
    Battleground

    Any good low-budget black & white British War Movie gets my vote, as does anything by David Lean.

    and too many others - depends on the mood I'm in - I'd rather see good cinematography, an intelligent script and decent editing than just action...

    Started to watch Caprica. Seems cool. Still crying the lost of Battlestar Galactica, but the spinoff seems good.

    Great series - sadly, for the 99.9999% of Americans who don't learn history - if they did nothing more in their history class, but watch this, they'd be better for it...

    It answers a lot of questions you may have in the first movie. And then some.. It's a good one for sure, you won't be disappointed. :beer:
