If you expect a huge viking type with a gorgeous smile, you won't be disappointed. :lol:


And I wasn't! :D Really fun movie. Much better than Captain America. The characters were a lot more interesting, even though they were a little cheesy. Or, maybe because they were a little cheesy.

smallville, just restarted season 7 as I'd kinda stopped and forgotten exactly where in my giant 8 season box set I'd gotten to.
Loooooove Chloe Sullivan, written (apparently) specifiably for the show and by series 7 the risible Lana lang is mostly gone (thank the gods).

On the flight over here I saw Captain America, Green Lantern, Thor and X-Men. Talk about superhero overload! :lol:
Proceed, varlet, and let the day be rendered perfect for my benefit!

@tony looks like you'r eprepped for the avengers movie then.

I'm watching a lot of smallville and the first episode of Jericho, post apocalyptic thingy, looks interesting.

Watched Green Latern last night. A bit meh - GL was always my favourite caharcater as a kid, so perhaps I was hoping for too much. Some great sequences though, addressing some classic comic superhero issues: GL goes to see his ex-girlfriend with his costume on. She looks closely. "Hal? Is that you? I've known you forever! I've seen you naked! Did you think I wouldn't recognise you because I couldn't see your cheekbones?"
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

Green Lantern is on our list. I don't have high hopes based on reviews, but I can't not see it. I did watch Limitless last night. Good movie! A little painful to watch, one of those bad to worse scenarios. But, good ending and a little different than I expected.

We have been obsessed with True Blood, to the extent that we watched 4 seasons in a fortnight and now we are suffering from withdrawal while we wait for another. It's a bit heavy on explicit romance (putting it extraordinarily lightly) but if you can wince through that, or if you enjoy it, then the rest is great. We did prefer the smaller characters to the main ones though. We found Vampire Bill a bit too wet!
We are now trying to find something else to get obsessed with. We have tried Sons Of Anarchy and Breaking Bad but neither have really tickled me pickle :roll: Any suggestions would be great!

i adore Sons of Anarchy and Dexter. Modern Family and Big Bang Theory are also excellent. Smallville was good and there is a lot of it!
As we journey through life, discarding baggage along the way, we should keep an iron grip, to the very end, on the capacity for silliness.

I've started watching ultimate force, it's totally silly and anyone with an actual military SAS background would probably hate it as much as I hate poorly written computer stuff (the sandra bullock movie the net springs to mind.

Starrign Ross Kemp (amongst others) one of my favourite lines came in the first episode
Lt: well done you ment
raw recruit: thank you sir
Ross kemp (ater lt has left) :" never call rupoerts sir, it gives them ideas above their station"

i have four seasons of this enjoyable tosh to get through.

Saw the 4th Pirates - On Stranger Tides. Disappointing.

Just started watching Misfits. How have we gone for so long without knowing about this!
